mate-20-x




While the name itself is very hard to take seriously in every possible way, the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 X could both figuratively and literally be a game changing device. It has been a while since companies truly tested the old debate about "how big is too big," but the Mate 20 X is certainly asking that question! Featuring a mammoth 7.21" OLED display, this is not just a flagship device with all the bells and whistles, it brings something completely new to the plate too. Apparently, Huawei has developed this giant to cater to the needs of mobile gamers and while it's not out yet, it would be safe to say that this does look VERY promising. The OEM is even going to sell exclusive joysticks for the phone separately, similar to the Nintendo Switch console. To know what we are talking about, take a look at the most impressive specs below.


·        Kirin 980 SoC with graphene-based cooling system


·        7.21" 2244 x 1080 FHD+ OLED display (HDR) with a dew drop notch


·        5000mAh battery


·        40 MP (f/1.8, 27mm (wide), 1/1.7") + 20 MP (f/2.2, 16mm (ultrawide), 1/2.7") + 8 MP (f/2.4, 80mm (telephoto), ¼", 5x optical zoom)


·        24 MP f/2.0, 26mm (wide) selfie camera


·        Color options: Midnight Blue, Phantom Silver


·        Compatible with stylus and gamepad, which will be sold separately


·        Available for Preorder from October 26


·        Exclusive to China and certain parts of Asia only at the moment

The Revenant

 

Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Academy Award-winning film Birdman is a dark comedy set almost entirely in one theater and shot to look like a single take. Iñárritu's follow-up film is pretty much the polar opposite of that, although it's Oscar ambition seems equally apparent.

 

The Revenant

 

The Revenant, "inspired by true events," stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Hugh Glass, a 19th century frontiersman who was mauled by a bear and left for dead by his expedition group (which includes Tom Hardy). The trailer is heavy on tension, ambience, beards, drums, and heavy breathing.

Samsung just unveiled a 10nm LPDDR4 6GB DRAM meant for mobile devices at the Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum 2016 in Shenzhen, China recently. Since in 2016, the only upcoming device from the South Korean manufacturer that is worthy of such an upgrade is the Galaxy Note 6, we are pretty sure that is where it will make its debut.


It would be an intelligent guess if we were to say that the same RAM will also be seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 in 2017. Right now though, we are excited about the Galaxy Note 6. The rumors that are encircling the phablet are awe-inspiring to say the least. A Snapdragon 823 processor that's more powerful than the SD 820, 6GB of LPDDR4 DRAM, 5.8-inch Super AMOLED QHD display and all this powered through a system that consumes less power than its previous iterations!


The software is in its developmental stage though, as per reports and would likely be based on Android N. It will be interesting to see how much of these rumors the Note 6 lives up to, when it is unveiled in August (probably). However, if the newly confirmed 6GB RAM is any indication, then we would be obligated to say that the rumors are pretty spot on these days!

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were without a doubt, the fastest phones running on Android in 2016 and early 2017. While that title might be up for debate now with the launch of a number of smartphones with the next gen flagship processors in 2017, they continue to remain two of the fastest phones that you can buy. In terms of software optimization and camera performance however, they are arguably, still unmatched. With all that said and done, if there was only one gripe about those two smartphones, it would be the design. They just look so outdated compared to the competition, especially with those giant top and bottom bezels. Well, the bad news is that the design may not change much unfortunately.


If the latest report by Forbes turns out to be true, then HTC will be making this year's Pixel phones as well and they will largely reflect the same disappointing design language as that of the HTC U11. In order to find out more about how HTC Soku came to this conclusion by going through the U11's system files, check out the Forbes article here.

Sony WF-1000XM3 Earbuds

 

Wireless earbuds have taken over the market over the years.

You can choose from hundreds of wireless earbuds and enjoy the freedom that they offer. I personally believe that wireless earbuds became popular because they have no wires.

Without wires running between your phone and headphones, you're free to do whatever you want and go wherever you want while listening to your favorite music.

Wireless earbuds are handy for everyday life and commuting. They're also perfect for sporty people who want to listen to their favorite songs while training.

Nowadays, wireless earbuds have true wireless designs. This means that they don't come with a cable or neckband connecting them together. They look like earplugs.

Other advantages of truly wireless earbuds include noise-canceling tech, carry cases and touch controls. The carry cases can be used as portable chargers.

What I like most about true wireless earbuds, is that some of them have a built-in heart rate monitor. If you're a fan of true wireless earbuds and want to buy a pair, you're in the right place.

Selecting the right pair can be overwhelming with so many products on the market but I'm here to help. After hours of research, I have found the 3 best true wireless earbuds for android phones.

Wireless and True Wireless Earbuds: What is the Difference?

Wireless earbuds have been present on the market for a while now.

They're not physically connected to your device. However, they do have a wire connecting the earbuds. True wireless earbuds, on the other hand, have no wire whatsoever.

While wireless earbuds allow you to wear headphones a couple of feet away from your mobile unit, true wireless earbuds cuts provide complete freedom.

How to Choose the Best True Wireless Earbuds for Android Phones?

Selecting the right true wireless earbuds can be hard with so many products on the market.

They come in different sizes, shapes and comfort can differ greatly from one product to another. Also, it varies on the size of your ears.

However, there are universal factors you need to consider when choosing the best true wireless earbuds for android phones, including:

  • Battery life

  • Smart features

  • Microphone quality

  • Noise cancellation

  • Sound quality
  • Comfort

Final Thoughts

True wireless earbuds became very popular over the years. Nowadays, they make the perfect choice for people who prefer complete freedom over wired earbuds.

They're also perfect for sporty people. However, picking the right earbuds for you can be a daunting task with so many products available for purchase.

Hopefully, my reviews of the 3 best true wireless earbuds for android phones can help you make a smart choice. Select the product that meets your needs and fits your budget.
