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.

samsung earbuds

 

Over the past couple of years, the wireless earbuds have grown from a luxury into a necessity. There is no shortage of the company's manufacturing earbuds but recently there has been some trend towards the Samsung Galaxy Buds, and now they have released the second generation.


So should you buy the Galaxy Buds Plus? The biggest advantage of using the earbuds is the way they work with Android. Although pretty much all kinds of earbuds work okay with Android in one way or another, even you can connect Apple's AirPods. However, a lot of them lack these lack extra features on the platform. With the Samsung Galaxy Buds plus, there are many extra features available, especially if you own a Samsung phone.

 

On a Samsung smartphone, just pair the earbuds with the phone and you will be greeted with a pop-up that displays the battery status of each bud and the case too. It is exactly how Apple works with AirPods. However, this isn't available to all phones. If you own a Google Pixel 4, you need to download an extra app. Once the app is installed, you will have control over the buds plus to customize taps and the like. But you won't get any pop-up with battery information. This has to be checked within the app only.


Samsung has included a USB-C port on the back of the charging case and a Qi wireless chagrining receiver inside the case. The earbuds have pretty good battery life and can last up to 11 hours by Samsung's rating. I don't think that anyone would use the earbuds for that long but even if you use it aa for 4,5 hours, the battery hardly gets any drainage.


There are a few different sound profiles in the Samsung app but if you settled down Dynamic, this sounds pretty normal. The Normal setting although won't get you the best result. Another big plus here is the Spotify integration that enables you to assign a long-press on either bud to a Spotify shortcut. This shortcut initiates Spotify on your connected phone to play either your most recent track or your daily mix playlists.

 

Now, to talk about the cons or not so good features of the earbuds. The buds plus case isn't huge but still unflattering and thick and the default sound profile isn't so good. Samsung has used two microphones to make call audio to sound better and isolate your voice but you may not find the quality of the mics quite impressive.

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!

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.

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.


sportsbook-sites


Now that we can bet on any sports we want (as long as it's not illegal in your country) via online sportsbooks, the choice can be quite confusing. There are so many of them to choose from, so how do we know which ones are actually good? If you are going to invest money and time into a hobby, it only makes sense that you look for the following must have attributes.


Compatibility with Multiple Operating Systems


The lines between fully fledged desktop grade operating systems such as Windows 10 or MacOS 10, and mobile Operating Systems like Android and iOS is slowly disappearing in terms of power and functionality. Therefore, the sportsbook site should be dynamic in nature, that is instead of offering a shrunk version of tits original website in a mobile package, it should be able to fit into any window size perfectly, irrespective of the OS.


It is important for a sports book to work flawlessly on phones and tablets because not many people sit in front of their computers all day to place sports bets anymore. they play their games, check their odds and place their bets on the go, in the office and while relaxing on the couch after a busy day.


Variety of Options


if you are really interested in a dedicated sportsbook which deals exclusively in only one kind of sport, it's your choice, but you are definitely missing out on the big picture here! Variety is important for a sportsbook to be worth your time, because it keeps your options open, lets you try your skills and luck in different types of settings and most importantly, it keeps the experience fresh and enjoyable.


The Establishment Must Have a Preceding Reputation


william-hill-sportsbook


Check this William Hill Sportsbook Review on Odds USA, where they take an in-depth look at the prestigious British sportsbook and its online wing in particular. True to the reputation which the name of William Hill has carried for more than eight decades (since 1934), the betting establishment scores high in every department. Such is the nature of established sportsbooks in general; if they are worth your time, there's probably a prestigious history associated with them.


Bonus and Loyalty Points


The bonus is what welcomes new players with lucrative benefits. A good example would be when the betting site matches a new player's initial deposit in credit. However, it's the loyalty points which keeps gamblers coming back time and again. It's important to get rewarded every once in a while for the money you are spending, in order for the experience to remain enjoyable.


Last but not least, the sportsbook site should have 24/7 customer care service available to explain queries, clear confusions and solve issues for their members, if and when they pop up.
