Getting‌ ‌a‌ ‌Smart‌ ‌TV‌ ‌this‌ ‌Christmas?‌ ‌Go‌ ‌for‌ ‌Android!‌ ‌

The‌ ‌smart‌ ‌televisions‌ ‌I’ve‌ ‌owned‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌past‌ ‌have‌ ‌bugged‌ ‌me‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌number‌ ‌of‌ ‌reasons.‌ ‌Firstly, and‌ ‌especially‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌first‌ ‌“early”‌ ‌versions,‌ ‌you’d‌ ‌find‌ ‌the‌ ‌whole‌ ‌experience‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌slow.

Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro – Review

My first impressions on this one definitely surrounded the size of the phone. It’s quite a weighty and large device at 218 grams and 9.3mm thick. Compare that to the 199g weight and 8.5mm thickness of something like the OnePlus 8 Pro. Sure, the extra 19 grams might …
