You may have Smartphone with Wi-Fi 802.11ac in your hands now, and it was just released. However, Samsung is already looking ahead to improve this Technology even further. The company has announced that it has managed to complete the development of the Wi-Fi 802.11ad standard and is ready to commercialize it.
The new 802.11ad standard operates at a 60GHz frequency and enables high transmission speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, which is 575MB/s. That's an increase of 5x times compared to the 802.11ac standard, which is capable of 866Mbps, or 108MB/s.
Samsung says that the 802.11ad standard maintains maximum speed by eliminating the co-channel interface and thus removing the gap between theoretical and actual speeds. The 60GHz frequency is more than 10x times faster than that of 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies.
How would you react if your next iPhone came without the 3.5mm jack? The 3.5mm audio port has been the basic universal standard for all media-capable devices and even basic phones for the last several years. According to the latest rumor about the upcoming iPhone 7, Apple is removing it from their future products. What makes this rumor scarier is the fact that it supposedly came from the iPhone 7 supply chain!
We are unsure as to why Apple would even make this move as we can clearly predict issues with such a decision from the word go. Firstly, the new lightning port is incapable of supporting analog audio unlike the previous Apple 30-pin connector. Even if a regressively proprietary set of costly headphones with built-in amp and Digital-to-Analog Converter is made available, it would definitely strain the battery in addition to becoming far too complicated. Moreover, this would prevent the user from charging the phone while using headphones.
Wireless audio will possibly be a better option if Apple really goes through with this move as your new Apple headsets won't be compatible with anything else you own anymore. In our opinion, the chances of this rumor turning out to be true are pretty slim as the decision would unnecessarily complicate things for the iPhone 7 and frankly, we cannot see a viable reason as to why the company would make such a change to begin with!
In the ever-evolving world of mobile tech, creating an app that meets modern standards is no easy feat. With so many different technical aspects to keep in mind, combining each element into a cohesive whole takes time, talent, and a serious interest in quality assurance. So, how is it that one of the most successful entries in online casino mobile apps, Mansion Casino, has managed to defy the odds to come out on top? We take a look.
Utilising Modern Possibilities
Perhaps the biggest advantage that has helped generate mobile app success comes from the possibilities opened through newer programming developments such as HTML5. While many people enjoy using a mobile gaming app such as that offered by Mr Green, which is reviewed at www.casinoreviews.co.uk, Mansion Casino has gone in a different direction.
Rather than going the route of developing a dedicated downloadable style of app, Mansion Casino and Mr Green have taken the new road. Properly utilising modern generation techniques means that the same level of quality is possible through simply accessing a service as a webpage.
Of course, much of this is down to the care and dedication put in by the developers. As it so happens, this is something to which Mansion Casino has shown significant attention.
The final effect of this is a casino service that's much faster to access than downloadable varieties. This is also less demanding on the accessing device, meaning users won't need to quickly invest in phones like the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 Pro at www.youmobile.org to stay in the game.
Generating Player Choice
In the highly competitive world of online casinos, it's quite common for services to focus on just one or two types of games. While this can be a benefit for the few players with a narrow field of interest, it can be a hindrance to the majority.
This is hardly an issue confined to casino games services, as lack of choice is also a problem on some traditional video game services, as www.pcgamer.com explains.
With casino games, this tends to manifest as a sole dedication to slot games. While these are undoubtedly among the most popular, as shown by www.marketrealist.com, they are far from the only desired choice.
This is where, on the gaming front, Mansion Casino sets itself above the rest of the pack. Offering 37 different roulette games, 29 different blackjack tables, and 16 other table games means that players can always switch easily should they desire.
This might seem like a no-brainer, but complexities with licenses mean that obtaining such a range of games is no easy feat. Many players also understand this, which makes Mansion's users all the more appreciative.
Looking from the Player Side
Together, these developments give a strong indication of exactly how Mansion Casino succeeds. While operating as a business, they have approached their developments from the view of a player.
By understanding what is easiest for players and what they would like the best, they have managed to elevate themselves above businesses that refuse to cross the road. Or, just as bad, those who cross a road that does not need crossing, like Samsung might be trying soon as we noted at www.youmobile.org.
This might mean more work for them, but the end result is one which has proven successful, for both players and Mansion Casino.
Lenovo has just unleashed a brand new series, which will replace the Moto X series of smartphones, starting from 2016. Both the phones in the new Z-series will come with top tier specs like a SD 820 CPU, a 5.5-inch QHD panel, 4GB of RAM and even the choice for 32GB/64GB in-built storage (along with expandable SD card slots). The regular Moto Z will sport a 13-megapixel rear sensor with laser autofocus, optical image stabilization and a dual tone LED flash for pitch dark conditions. On the front, there's the 5-megapixel snapper with a dedicated selfie-flash and a wide angle lens for group selfies. All this will be powered by the Quick charging 2,600mAh battery inside the Z.
The Moto Z Force has the bigger 3,500mAh battery and a shatterproof glass on the front. Lenovo calls the glass "ShatterShield" and they are confident that it cannot be broken by even the roughest of falls. The thicker and more premium device also features a higher resolution 21-megapixel sensor with phase detection laser autofocus, optical image stabilization and an aperture of f/1.8 for low-light photography. In spite of the flagship specs, what we did not like is the missing headphone jack that we have grown accustomed to. Although an USB Type-C to headphone adapter is included in the box, it means that you cannot simultaneously use the Type-C port for charging or data syncing, while listening to the headphones.
In addition to the missing 3.5mm jack, the two Moto phones also bring something else that the market is just getting accustomed to. Both phones have 16 magnetic dots at the lower-back area and they are equipped to connect with the "Moto Mods." Similar to what we saw with the LG G5 modular phone that was released earlier this year, the Moto Mods are modular accessories created specifically for the Moto Z smartphones to enhance the device's already impressive capabilities. There's the InstaShare Projector mod and some stylish case mods, but we found the JBL Soundboost mod to be the most impressive with its twin 3W speakers and a 1,000 mAh battery to boost the phone's usage time.
As is evident, the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force has a LOT to offer, but you will have to wait till September to get your hands on one, if you are outside the US. Verizon in the US however, will release their "Droid Editions" sooner.
