Samsung draws a line on the Galaxy S20
Galaxy S20 is dead, place the Galaxy S21. Samsung’s new flagship was announced on January 14, and on the 19 that followed, its predecessor was already showing in sold out on the firm’s online store. Only the FE model of the smartphone is still available. This is certainly the first time that Samsung has separated so quickly from its old premium line. But this decision stems from reasoning that is ultimately quite logical. On the one hand, the Galaxy S20 achieved disappointing sales scores throughout 2020. On the other hand, its successor is in every way more interesting for users: the new premium range is cheaper, while its performance is better.

The creator of the Thermomix accuses Lidl of counterfeiting
Lidl’s Monsieur Cuisine is a bit too similar to the Thermomix for the taste of Vorwerk, the German company that developed the latter.

New PS5 stocks on February 2nd!
Will Cdiscount be able to end the PS5 shortage? With the announcement of stocks available on February 2, hope is in order. However, nothing is less certain. When on January 18, Carrefour put new consoles on sale on its website, they went off at lightning speed. The same goes for January 20, when Cdiscount also put PS5s on sale. We do not yet know the details of February 2, namely the opening time of sales and the number of consoles available. As always, it will be necessary to stay on the lookout for the slightest information. In the meantime, Amazon has announced a stock of 600 consoles available soon.
Our tests of the week
The latest high-end flagship from Samsung and the potential competitors of the Airpods Pro. The SoC of Galaxy S21 Ultra fulfills its performance promises, while its battery is better than that of its predecessors, although still below that of its competitors. On the other hand, if the smartphone is undoubtedly of good quality, it is difficult not to regret theabsence of a microSD port. From € 1,259. The Oppo Enco X definitely have nothing to envy to the Airpods Pro. Their more compact design andexcellent sound experience proposed support effective active noise reduction. Too bad that the HeyMelody application, in addition to being absent from the App Store, does not offer a frequency equalizer. AT € 179 the pair, these are the most expensive headphones of the brand, but they remain much less expensive than those of Apple.
