As Apple notes on its website, its new Portrait Lighting mode is the culmination of countless hours or research into "the art and science of portraiture" and enables users to adorn their photos with eye-catching shadows, spotlight effects, and more.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review: A beast from the East

xiaomi mi mix 2 review

Today, bezel-less displays are the expectation for any flagship phone. If the screen doesn't spill over two or more edges, it's almost laughable to many gadget lovers and early adopters.
