  17. Insider Preview build 16215

    You could well be forgiven for thinking I'd given up reporting on Insider builds after the Creators Update was released ... but the truth is that Microsoft had gotten themselves into one of those cycles where it simply wasn't worth reporting on, or even installing, the builds being released.

    • I'll double check the specs; but pretty sure they said the Mate 10 did have it. It seems the V30 screen is much better "in real life" than when running greyscale tests. However, the comparison above still focuses on the DPI rating
    • I didn't think the new Huawei Mate 10 devices had wireless charging?  Also lots of bad reviews slating the V30 screen out there. 
    • In the fourth of our comparison articles, I've gone all out this time and included the newly announced Hauwei Note 10 and Note 10 Pro as well as the Apple iPhone X against our (my) old favourite the LG V30 and the "king" of Samsungs, the Galaxy Note 8. The winner is quite interesting, (as is the outright looser), so read on to find out what the numbers tell us... Comparing phones is always a somewhat emotive opinion on the part of the person doing the comparison, so I have tried to keep this one based upon facts rather than feelings. Some may argue with some of the decisions and some may need explanation. For example, the V30 wins the screen category purely because it has the highest ppi (pixels per inch) rating - screen size has been ignored; and the Mate 10, Pro, iPhone X & V30  share the size category because their combination of size vs. screens size is more impressive than the others. The winning phone in each category is shown in dark green and gains 2 points. Where no obvious winner exists, "highly commended" scores are in light green and gain 1 point) Feature Huawei Mate 10 Pro Huawei Mate 10 iPhone X LG V30 Galaxy Note 8 Construction Candybar, aluminium & glass Candybar, aluminium & glass Candybar, aluminium & glass Candybar, aluminium & glass Candybar, aluminium & glass Size 154.2mm x 74.5mm x 7.9mm 150.5mm x 77.8mm x 8.2mm 143.6mm x 70.9mm x 7.7mm 151.7mm x 75.4mm x 7.3mm 162.5mm x 74.8mm x 8.6mm Weight 178g 186g 174g 158g 195g Screen AMOLED 6.0" 2160x1080 402ppi IPS LCD 5.9" 2560x1440 499ppi AMOLED 5.8" 2436x1125 458ppi AMOLED 6.0" 2800x1440 537ppi AMOLED 6.3" 2960x1440 521ppi Battery 4000 mAh 4000 mAh 2716 mAh 3300 mAh 3300 mAh Processor Kirin 970 (AI Engine) Kirin 970 (AI Engine) Apple A11 Bionic Snapdraggon 835 Exynos OctaCore RAM 6GB 4GB 3GB 4GB 6GB Storage 128GB + MicroSD 64GB  + MicroSD 64GB / 256GB 64GB / 128GB + MicroSD 64GB / 128GB / 256GB + MicroSD Camera (rear) Main: 20Mpix f/1.6 & Wide: 12Mpix f/1.6, 2x Lossless Zoom, Leica optics, Phase Detection autofocus Main: 20Mpix f/1.6 & Wide: 12Mpix f/1.6, 2x Lossless Zoom, Leica optics, Phase Detection autofocus Dual 12Mpix f/1.8 &  f/2.4, Phase Detection autofocus, IOS, 2x Optical zoom Main: 16Mpix f/1.6 (71deg)& Wide: 13Mpix f/1.9 (120deg), IOS, HDR10, Assisted Zoom Tele: 12Mpix f/2.4 (45deg) & Wide: DualPixel 12Mpix f/1.7 (77deg), IOS, 2x Optical zoom Camera (front) 8Mpix f/2.0 8Mpix f/2.0 7Mpix f/2.2, HDR, panorama 5Mpix f/2.2 (90deg) 8Mpix f/1.7 Connectivity 3G, 4G, Gigabit LTE, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, Bt 4.2, IR, USB 2.0 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, Bt 4.2, IR, USB 2.0 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, Bt 5.0, USB 2.0 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, Bt 5.0, USB 3.1 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, Bt 5.0, USB 3.1 Android version Android 8.0 Android 8.0 iOS 11.0.2 Android 7.1.2 Android 7.1.1 Fingerprint Sensor Yes, rear (middle) Yes, front No Yes, rear (middle) Yes, rear (left) Protection Splashproof (IP53) Waterproof (IP67) Waterproof (IP67) Waterproof (IP68), Shockproof Waterproof (IP68) Charging QuickCharge 3.0, Wireless Charging QuickCharge 3.0, Wireless Charging Fast Charging, Wireless Charging QuickCharge 3.0, Wireless Charging QuickCharge 3.0, Wireless Charging Price £ 799 £ 699 £ 1000 (approx) £ 700 (approx) £ 869 Availability November 2017 November 2017 November 2017 November 2017 Now Total points 12 5 4 13 9 ...so, once again, LG has pulled it out the bag, producing a phone which (by the specs alone) beats all others. Even more interesting though is how *badly* the iPhone X does in this comparison; there really is nothing hardware-wise that makes it stand out against the crowd!

    • Update: Earlier today (10th October), Microsoft essentially admitted that build 16299.15 IS the Fall Creators Update by releasing it to the "Release Preview" ring of the Windows 10 Insider Preview program. Last week, Microsoft pushed out Windows Insider build 16299.15; an updated build of the previous Insider Preview build 16299.1. Considering this is the same base build, but a newer compile of it (with bug fixes), could 16299.15 become the Fall Creators Update RTM build? The timing is certainly about right, and this would also follow what Microsoft did with the original Creators Update builds (namely fixing on a "base" build and then issuing incremental updated builds until all the blocking bugs were eliminated); and having been running 16299.15 for most of the last week, it certainly seems stable. Microsoft's release notes for this build don't indicate it *is* the final build; but I guess we'll only learn that as we get closer to 17th October. (read the Update 2 line in the release notes)
