mi-mix-3


There was a time when the Chinese OEMs were called out for copying Apple and sometimes Samsung, but how the times have changed! Instead of being followers, Chinese OEMs such as Vivo, Oppo, Huawei and Xiaomi have now established themselves as trendsetters. They have in-display fingerprint scanners, true bezel-less displays, best camera tech and mechanized cameras modules! The latest phone to join this list of elite and innovative smartphones is the Mi Mix 3 which has pretty much everything that a phone in 2018 is expected to have and then some.


Key specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6GB/8GB/10GB of RAM,128GB/256GB storage, a 6.39-inch truly bezel-less AMOLED display (2,340x1,080), 24mp + 2mp front cameras, 12mp + 12mp rear cameras and a 3,850mAh battery. If you thought the 10GB of RAM was crazy, wait till you see how the two front cameras actually slide out of the display! Although the Vivo Nex and the Oppo Find X already did the same with motorized camera modules, Xiaomi believes that the manual slider which it has incorporated to hide the front cameras will actually be more durable than motorized modules. So, do you think that these specs are impressive enough for you to be interested in the Mi Mix 3 from Xiaomi? Personally, I think that it's where smartphones in general are headed towards in 2019 -2020, but there's no need to upgrade right now, if you have any SD 845 or similarly powered phone. Just wait till they perfect the technology next year. But just in case you are planning to upgrade in the near future, there's really no reason you shouldn't be interested in the Mi Mix 3 either!

Samsung launched its latest flagship handsets last month at the MWC 2018 and the pre-orders have already opened up since March 6, although you will have to wait till March 16 to buy one from the store. But the question is, should you buy one? Let's try and find out.


Do You have a Galaxy S8/S8 Plus?


No, I am not going to tell you that the S9 and S9 Plus are not much better than their predecessors because frankly speaking, they most certainly are better in a lot of ways. However, the question is, are those added features significant enough for you to upgrade from last year's models? Well, it depends really! If you are someone who must have the latest and best phone, it's a no-brainer; buy the S9/S9 Plus because they do offer more. However, if you are someone who is looking for enough value to justify that upgrade, the answer becomes more complicated.


What Extra Features are You Really Getting?


On one hand, you do get a set of superb cameras with the S9+ that's significantly better than the single camera module on the S8 and S8 Plus, but on the other hand, you have the S9 with just a single camera, which might make you think twice about choosing the smaller device. The good news is that even the single camera on the S9 is better than the one on the S8, thanks to variable aperture and a self-adjusting lens. There's also the better-positioned fingerprint scanner, a more powerful processor, AR emojis, stereo speakers, front cam selfie focus for portraits and it supports super slow-motion (960fps at 720p). Even then, all that isn't quite enough to justify a switch unless you really want to. The stereo speakers are good, but they are nothing to write home about and the super slo-mo mode lasts for just a few secs and even at 720p, the camera needs a lot of light to capture decent footage. The Exynos 9810 and the SD 845 are both more powerful than the Exynos 8895 and the SD 835 from last year, but unless you are running benchmarks, you may never even notice the boost in speed during regular use. Other than the rear cameras, the rest of the features like AR emojis and selfie focus are just gimmicks as well.


Should You Get it Then?


They are still great contenders for becoming the phone of the year and if you have anything that's older than two-years, the S9 Plus is definitely worth the upgrade and then some, but at this point, the S8 and S8 Plus are still going strong and will keep going that way at least until the S10 comes out in 2019. In conclusion, we would say that if you have a S8 or S8+, wait till next year, but if you just have to upgrade now, go for the S9 Plus, because it makes more sense that way.

The DearMob iPhone Manager is popular as an encrypted, secure alternative to iTunes, that can transfer data to and from your iPhone without any of the multiple restrictions imposed by iOS. Taking a look at its many features helps us to understand why it is so popular with iPhone Users in the first place.

Faster Transfer Speed


Comparing the transfer speed of the same file with that of a few other third-party iPhone managers, we found that the DearMob iPhone Manager somehow managed to transfer media files (audio, video, image, etc.) and backup files at a faster rate. This was surprising given that no compression was observed. DearMob claims that the software can transfer as many as 100 images in 4K resolution under just 8-seconds!


Higher Storage Option than iTunes/iCloud


Compared to iTunes or iCloud, the DearMob iPhone Manager offers hardware storage options to iOS users, which is virtually unlimited, making sure that when you back up your data from an iPhone or iPad, nothing is excluded and you never run out of storage space. In case you do, just buy another external hard drive or flash drive!


Media File Transfer and Management is Complete and Seamless

Backup and Restore Made Super Simple and Fast


Our smartphones carry a lot of important personal and financial data these days, so it is imperative to back it all up every now and then to keep the data from getting lost forever, in case you forgot a password, lost the phone or the device simply died on you. The possibilities are endless, so backing up data on a regular basis is advised in general for iPhone or iPad users.


The DearMob iPhone Manager offers a simple 1-click solution for both data backups and restoration for all iOS devices in general. It makes it super easy to not only protect your data against loss via 1-click storage on any mac or Windows computer, but when you upgrade to a newer device, the restoration of the previously stored data onto the new iPhone or iPad only takes a single click as well. This is pretty much as simple as things can get on iOS or on any other platform for that matter. Unlike iTunes, DearMob iPhone Manager also enables you to selectively backup iPhone photos, videos, music, contacts and so on.

Transfer Your eBooks


iTunes doesn't allow ePub files, aka eBooks to be transferred from the iBook Library to any other device. DearMob's iPhone solution not only enables such transfers, you can basically convert any of the ePub files into PDF, TXT, HTML, etc. to even read it from your laptop or another phone or tablet that's running on Android.


What Else Does the Manager Offer?


Well, the answer is a LOT more apparently! You can install third-party applications without Jailbreaking your iDevice, mount it as a flash drive on your PC/Mac for easier and faster file transfers, sync data from Chrome, Edge, Mozilla, Opera or any other browser to Safari and even manage office files.


Perhaps what we liked most about the DearMob iPhone Manager is that in spite of offering so many features that are missing on iTunes, the interface is so simple and intuitive. It's like they took everything that was missing in iTunes and put it in a slimmer and more intuitive interface for Apple users.Given that you can basically download and try the Dearmob iPhone Manager and all of its features for free initially, on both the MacOS and Windows 10, we are inclined to say yes, the DearMob iPhone Manager is indeed worth a try and chances are, you will probably soon be using the manager a lot more than iTunes.
