In this week’s top stories: We take a look at how Apple’s take on the bezel-less UI with the new iPhone X is inferior to Android’s take, we exclusively reveal Bose’s new headphones with Google Assistant built in, and benchmarks for the iPhone X unfortunately beat all the best Android phones. We kick things off this week with lots of big Apple news — specifically the iPhone X — and what it means for Google’s platform. We take a look at how its bezel-less UI is an absolutely disaster compared to Android’s interpretation. We also took a closer look at the benchmarks for the new iPhone X and compare them to the latest Android handsets.

Also, we exclusively revealed this week that a pair of forthcoming headphones from Bose will be some of the first to ship with Google Assistant built-in. We’ve been tracking this stories since we first saw references to “Bisto” in the Google app earlier this year, and we’ve finally definitively proven that the device codenamed “Baywolf” are these new Bose headphones.
