Silk Smartish cases
Sarah Tew/CNET Silk brings its line of affordable, simple, slim cases and wallet cases to the iPhone 11 under the new brand name of Smartish. The Smartish Walletslayer case is one of the best iPhone 11 cases for those on a budget. It sells for $15 and holds three credit cards plus cash.

See it at Best BuyWorth noting: Amazon currently has the WD Elements 5TB drive for $98.10, which supports both USB 3.0 and 2.0. But the Easystore includes WD Backup software, something to consider if that's your intended purpose for the drive. Beyond that, I'm not sure of any key differences between Easystore and Elements. Both are backed by a two-year warranty.

Lifeproof
Sarah Tew/CNET Lifeproof, now owned by Otterbox, isn't in the business of making waterproof cases anymore (it has only one case that's waterproof: the Fre). But it still makes very nice cases to protect your iPhone, including the Next and Slam, as well as the new Flip Series, which adds a slip-out wallet element that turns into a kickstand. I personally like the Slam best. It costs $46 and comes in a variety of colors and designs. Pair it with its Rewind wall charger for speedy charging.

The X50 Pro 5G showcases the Snapdragon 865 chip that we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S20, just one of its specs that you'd expect to see on a flagship phone. It also includes a rear quad-camera setup (led by Sony's 62-megapixel sensor), a 90Hz refresh rate and super-fast charging capabilities that Realme says can fully charge the larger battery in just 35 minutes. 

Sarah Tew/CNET If your workflow requires taking regular screenshots on your MacBook or Mac vue white dashboard pro, then you'll need to know three common keyboard shortcuts, and a fourth if you have a MacBook with a touch bar. One of these techniques is a little newer. You might remember it from MacOS Mojave, but if you didn't, rest assured that it has carried over to MacOS Catalina.

WD Good heavens, storage is cheap. And I'm not talking about big, clunky drives that live on your desk and require their own power supplies. No, portable storage, crazy-cheap.

Dell XPS 13
Sarah Tew/CNET Dell's is a 13.3-inch laptop that's so trimmed up that the body is basically the size of an older 11.6-inch laptop. Being part of the company's XPS line means both its chassis and components are top notch for its class, so you're getting great battery life and performance, too. Read our Dell XPS 13 (2019) review.

Short of a major breakthrough in battery technology, improvements to our phone batteries will come from making  the devices more energy-thrifty overall. (Here's a more detailed look at what's holding up the battery revolution.)

Érika García/CNET Chinese phone-maker Realme just launched the Realme X50 5G Pro, its second 5G-capable phone in the last couple of months. Earlier this year, in January, it launched the X50 5G. Realme made waves in 2019 when it launched a parade of low-priced handsets that were relatively high in quality. With the X50 5G and X50 5G Pro, it turns out the company is also targeting the premium end of the market. The new phones made their debut at simultaneous livestreamed events held in New Delhi and Madrid after the original event, scheduled for Mobile World Congress, was canceled due to the coronavirus.

Andrew Hoyle/CNET Other phone makers, such as Samsung and Apple, stick closer to industry-standard rules for fast charging and let you fast-charge effectively with a variety of compatible cables and chargers. 

How does a password manager work? 
To get started, a password manager will record the username and password you use when you first sign in to a website or service. Then the next time you visit the website, it will autofill forms with your stored user login information. For those websites and services that don't handle automatic filling, a manager lets you copy the password to paste into the password field.

Angela Lang/CNET If you frequently keep your iPhone plugged in during the day or while you sleep, you can turn on an iOS 13 battery setting called Optimized Battery Charging that will monitor your charging schedule and hold your iPhone's battery charge at 80%, keeping it out of the stress zone. After that point, it'll top off the charge to 100% right before you regularly unplug your phone. This works best for people who have a regular charging pattern.
