  • Android Q- Everything you need to know!

    android-q-everything-you-need-to-know

    We don't know the official name of Android Q yet. It is still up for debate. However, we know for sure that it is coming sometime this year. Google has already released several beta versions of Android Q. So, at this point, we have got a peek under the hood and we know a thing or two about some new and upcoming features of Android Q.

    As a result, we will be revealing what we know about Android Q in this post. So, if you are ready, then let’s get this underway...

     

    • System-wide dark mode:

    Yes, it is happening! The long awaited ‘Dark Mode’ is coming to Android at last. Google announced that there will be a dark theme (system-wide) option in Android Q. The users will be able to toggle it off or on with a ‘Quick settings’ button (may be straight from the notification bar). Nevertheless, we are happy that Google has listened to the community.

     

    • The back button is saying Goodbye:

    It was a surprise to us. Android Q will not have the famous ‘Back’ navigation button anymore. Now, the ‘Back’ button will be replaced by a side-swipe gesture. In Android Q, you will have to swipe from any either of the sides/edges of your Android phone's screen to go back. Earlier, Google has introduced gesture navigation feature with the release of Android Pie. But, the ‘Back’ button was still there. However, from Android Q the ‘Back’ button is going away.

     

    • Live Caption (offline and in real time):

    This is a brand new feature. With the ‘Live Caption’ feature enabled, you will get real-time captions for any audio and video that is playing on your phone. The best part about this feature is that it doesn’t need any internet access. So, even if you are offline, you will be able to get captions for your media. Yet, there’s a catch here. It is rumored that this awesome feature will only work on a few selected Android device. As it is a new feature, we hope in future it will come in more handsets.

     

    • Theming Options:

    There are a lot of reasons why we love to use Android. However, the capability of customizing our phone the way we like would be on the top of the list, for sure. And, Google is bringing more customization option with the release of Android Q. Although it is not yet official, we have found that you can change the accent color of the entire user interface on Android Q.

    At this point, there are only 4 colors to choose from which are Black, Purple, Green, and Blue. With the release of Android Q Beta 2, we have found a new app called ‘Pixel Themes’. This is still buggy. However, rumor has it that this app will be the new customization app for Android Q.

     

    • The Share menu has improved:

    The share menu of Android has not been touched for a long time. It is not that bad, it works. Yet, it could be better. And, lucky for us, Google has noticed it as well. With Android Q, the share menu is getting an overhaul. From now on, the share menu will load faster than ever.

    Along with that, we will have a new setting called ‘Sharing Shortcuts’. With the help of this feature, the developers will be able to create new shortcuts to share particular files faster than usual.

     

    • Optimized for foldable phones:

    Foldable phones are the new trend now. And, Google is adapting to it very fast. The Android Q is already optimized for foldable phones. Android Q will support multi-resume which will be a handy feature while using a foldable phone. In the future, we might see a lot of new features and improvements regarding foldable screens.

     

    • The Built-in screen recording is here:

    We know that you have waited for this feature for a long time. And, thanks to Google for listening to the user-base once again. At last, Android is having a built-in screen recorder. Yes, you have heard it right. However, there’s a tiny problem here.

    In the Beta version, you have to dig a little dip to find the screen recording option. It is hidden in the developer options. We think, in the official version, it will not be hidden anymore. With this much-anticipated feature, you will be able to record your phone’s screen. On top of this, you will have the option to show your taps and also record your voice at the same time.

     

    • When will you get it?

    At first, Google launched the Beta 1 of Android Q on March 13, 2019. On the next month, Google has revealed the Beta 2. After that on May 7, 2019, we have been introduced to Beta 3 of Android Q during Google I/O. However, not everyone can use the beta version yet.

    There is a public beta version of Android Q which is available for only 21 Android smartphones. If your phone is one of them, then you will be able to sign up for the beta version. And, following that procedure, you will receive an OTA (over-the-air) update on your phone to download and install it. Nevertheless, we believe that Android Q will be officially released in August 2019. But in the meantime, Google will definitely roll out more Beta versions.

     

    Summing it up:

    You can see that Google is bringing a lot of new features with Android Q. Some of them are very much anticipated. We are very happy that they have listened to us at last. Let’s wait and see what’s more the official release brings to us.

  • Samsung Galaxy S10+ Review

    samsung-galaxy-s10-review

    In February 2019, Samsung has announced its latest flagship smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S10 series was released all over the world in March 2019. For smartphone enthusiasts, this is a great opportunity to analyze, scrutinize another best-in-class smartphone.

    And, we couldn’t lose this opportunity. So, in this post, we will be reviewing the 10th edition of the renowned Samsung Galaxy S series. Now if you are ready, let’s take a look...

     

    • The design and color variation:

    Samsung hasn't done anything exceptional when it comes to the design. This is the same basic design which you have seen on some of the other Galaxy S devices. However, there are some key differences in the design compared to the previous devices of this popular series.

    For instance, the display proportion has changed. Now Samsung calls it the ‘Infinite Display’. You know that in recent times, mobile manufacturers are trying to create a bezel-less display for a long time. And, they have come up with a lot of ideas. We have seen the ‘Notch’, the ‘Punch Hole’, the ‘Mechanical Selfie Camera’ etc. All of them has their pros and cons.

    But, Samsung has used the punch hole idea on their Samsung Galaxy S10 series. You will find the punch hole in the top right corner of the screen. Samsung coined a new name for this type of display which is the ‘Infinity-O display’. You might like it or not but the notch/hole is there. But the notch is so little that you will be adapted to it quickly. After a couple of days of use, you might not even notice it. But with that, you are losing the notification LED in the Samsung Galaxy S10.

    In short, we can say that the design and outlook of the phone are very attractive. You are also getting 8 colors to choose from. The colors are Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue, Prism Green, Ceramic White, Ceramic Black, Canary Yellow, and Flamingo Pink. You won’t have problems finding the perfect color for yourself.

     

    • Display:

    Simply put, the Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+ has the best display in any mobile devices right now. It comes with a Dynamic Amoled Display. It now supports HDR10+. It is the first smartphone to support HDR10+.

    The Galaxy S10+ comes with a 6.4-inch display. The resolution and PPI density of the display is 1440 x 3040 pixels and 522 ppi density respectively. The aspect ratio of the display is 19:9. It comes with the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

    In contrast, the Galaxy S10 comes with a little smaller display which is 6.1 inch. The PPI density of the display of the Galaxy S10 is a bit higher than the S10+ which is 550 PPI density. Other than that the resolution and the aspect ratio are the same. The display panel is very much improved than the previous iterations. You won’t have any problem using it in direct sunlight. The display really stands out among the other features of this smartphone.

     

    • Cameras:

    There’s a huge competition in the ‘Camera’ section among the smartphone manufactures. Every other day, new camera technology is being introduced. And, Samsung has added a new ultra-wide camera on the back of Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+. So, there are 3 cameras in total at the back. And they are 12 MP (wide), 12 MP (telephoto), and 16 MP (ultra wide) respectively. But there are two cameras at the front of the S10+ and 1 selfie camera on the S10.

    The image quality is quite good. But arguably, there are other smartphones available in the market which can capture better pictures than the Samsung Galaxy S10. Both the front and the back cameras can take videos up to 2160p. The ultra-wide camera is fun to use. It has a 123-degree field of view. So, you are getting a unique perspective while capturing with the ultra-wide camera. Overall, the camera quality of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is very good. You will love it if you capture a lot of photos using your smartphone.

     

    • UI and Software:

    The Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with Android Pie (9.0). But the user interface of the smartphone has been redesigned by Samsung. It comes with the One UI. The One UI has replaced the famous TouchWiz by Samsung. Now, the icons and buttons are more rounded and it is better for one-handed use.

    There’s also the Bixby assistant. It might not be useful for you if you are an avid Google assistant user. Sadly, you can’t disable it entirely. However, you can assign quick commands on the Bixby button to carry out other tasks. The ‘Edge’ functions are also there. Overall, the software part of the smartphone hasn’t changed a lot. But it does the work quite perfectly.

     

    • Battery and recharging:

    Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with a 3400 mAh battery. And the Galaxy S10+ comes with a 4100 mAh battery. The battery life is good. But, it could be a little bit better for a large display like this. However, we also have to consider the thickness of the phone. Because if they want to increase the battery life, the phone will get thicker eventually. Thus, we don't have any complaint about the current situation of the battery backup of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series.

    You can charge the phone in both wired and wirelessly. The fast charging feature is also available. Along with that, Samsung has introduced reverse wireless charging. That means you can charge other wireless charging capable devices by placing them on the back of your phone. Pretty cool, huh?

     

    • Additional Specs:

    This smartphone comes with front and back glass. The body frame is made of Aluminum. You are also having the headphone jack and it is also IP68 water and dust proof. The Galaxy S10 comes with 128/512 GB internal memory (external micro SD up to 512 GB) and 8 GB RAM. And the Galaxy S10+ comes with two variations. First one is 1 TB, 12 GB RAM. And the second one is 128/512 GB, 8 GB RAM (external micro SD up to 512 GB).

    Samsung has introduced the ‘under display fingerprint’ which is an Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor with the Galaxy S10 series. It has its good and bad. But as it is a new technology, we can hope for an improvement in the coming days nonetheless.

     

    Pros:

    • Attractive Design, Very good build quality
    • One of the best displays in the market right now
    • Good Battery backup
    • Good photo and video quality, comes with triple back camera
    • Powerful hardware translates into excellent performance
    • A lot of color variations

     

    Cons:

    • Using the new under-display Fingerprint Sensor can be little bit infuriating
    • Image and video quality can be bad under low light
    • Charging speed could be better
    • The punch hole design might not be your cup of tea
    • Not worth upgrading if you already have the Samsung Galaxy S9

     

    Wrapping things up:

    You can see that the Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+ has its drawbacks. But, that doesn’t mean that it is a bad phone. Rather, if you take a look at the good side, then you can be sure that this is one of the best (if not the best) smartphones of 2019. It has an appealing design, awesome display, high-end spec. So, if you are thinking about getting a new smartphone in 2019, there’s no need to look further. The Samsung Galaxy S10 series is there for you.

  • Why you should (and shouldn't) buy a phone from BLU

    why-you-should-and-shouldnt-buy-a-phone-from-blu

    BLU is a manufacturer of affordable Android smartphones. If you have been researching affordable smartphones then you would already know about them. However, if you are not familiar with BLU, don't panic. We will introduce you to it shortly. Besides that, we will also share our opinion on why you should (and shouldn’t) buy a BLU phone.

     

    What is BLU?

    BLU stands for ‘Bold Like Us’. This is a Miami based smartphone manufacturer company. It was founded in 2009. They are not your typical phone manufacturer. Rather, they focus on making budget-friendly smartphones. They have a wide variety of Android smartphones on their collection. And, they have been selling quite a lot of devices as well, recently. However, they haven’t been able to establish them as a prominent brand yet. On the contrary, they have picked up some bad reputations here and there.

    First and foremost, let’s take a look at the issues regarding BLU. Here’s why you shouldn’t buy a BLU phone.

     

    Issues with BLU:

    • Amazon actually suspended the sale of BLU phones on its site for a week back in August 2017. Although the real reason behind this is still unknown it is almost certain that it was over data collection and privacy concerns. Amazon suspected that BLU phones come with spyware/malware, which were used to steal users’ data. That is why they have halted the sale of BLU.
    • Even before that in 2016, Kryptowire (a security firm) found out that some of the pre-loaded apps on the BLU phones came with a backdoor,  which sent user data to Chinese servers by collecting them from the user's smartphones’. Later, BLU told that they have destroyed the collected data. However, you know that doesn’t actually make sense, right?
    • Again in November 2017, BLU released a system update on their BLU Life One X2 phones. However, that update was full of bugs. Thus, a lot of BLU Life One X2 phone owners were locked out of their phones. BLU took over a week to fix this issue. That actually embarrassing, to say the least.

    These incidents clearly imply that BLU shouldn’t be trusted. However, since then BLU has been performing better. There were no complaints against them at all. Now, let’s see why you should get BLU phones.

     

    Budget-Friendly Android Smartphone:

    • If you are searching for a cheap and budget-friendly Android smartphone then BLU can be a great option. Almost all of their smartphones are very reasonably priced. For instance, you can have the BLU VIVO XL4 for just $150. It comes with a 4,000 mAh battery, 6.2 inches notched display, 13 MP camera, and 3 GB RAM etc. If you compare the specifications of this phone then it clearly beats Samsung Galaxy S8 and Moto G6.

    Other than this, we couldn’t find a better reason to recommend BLU phones to you. So, if you need an affordable Android smartphone and can trust BLU then you can go with them. But, if you are concerned about your privacy then we would urge you to avoid BLU at any cost.

  • Best Wireless Charging Pads for Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL in 2019

    best-wireless-charging-pads-for-google-pixel-3-pixel-3-xl-in-2019

    The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are very compact despite having a large display. Thus the battery of these devices runs out faster than usual. So you might need to charge your device frequently. That doesn’t mean that you can’t use your phone comfortably.

    Because Google has implemented wireless charging on the Pixel 3 series. It is the first Pixel phone on which wireless charging is supported natively. Google also introduced the ‘Pixel Stand’ — their official wireless charging pad for Pixel 3 series not so long ago. However, there are other options available on the market as well.

    In this article, we will talk about all the best wireless charging pads for the Google Pixel 3 Series. So, here we go…

     

    • Google Pixel Stand:

    If you don't want the official wireless charging pad for your Google Pixel 3 then you would have to use this one. The Google Pixel Stand is specially designed for the Pixel 3 series. It has a 10W output. Besides that, it comes with an advanced docked mode which is very unique. It will cost you about $79 at this point.

     

    • Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging Pad:

    If you are not a fan of the officially recommend Google Pixel Stand, then you can try the Belkin BOOST UP. It is also sold by Google on the Google store. It also comes with 10W output for fast charging. Although you won’t have the docked mode feature on this it comes with a grippy textured body. So your phone will not slip off the charger easily.

     

    • Samsung Fast Charge (Convertible):

    This charge is another popular one available on the market. One of the most interesting features of this charger is that it is convertible. You can either lay your phone to charge it or you can set it up at an angle as well. The only problem with this charger is that it is not capable of charging your Pixel 3 at 10W. Rather, it is perfect for 5W Qi charging.

     

    • Anker PowerWave:

    If you are looking for a cheaper option, then the PowerWave is there for you. It is also capable of only 5W output. But it is half the price of the Google Pixel Stand. The only issue with this charger is that it doesn’t come with a power brick. Other than that, it is good enough as a cheap option.

     

    • iOttie iON Wireless Mini Fast Charging Pad:

    This is the cheapest charger of the bunch. It is also a 5W charger. The iOttie wireless charger comes fabric style which matches to the Google Pixel 3. That is why it has become very popular.

     

    • Mophie Charge Stream Powerstation:

    When it comes to wireless charging, it is easy to say that there is still a wire/cable attached to the charger. So, it is not purely wireless charging. And, Mophie knows that. So they have developed a true wireless charger using a portable battery pack which is capable of charging your phone wirelessly. This charger has a 10W output when you use a cable. And, if you use the wireless function then it can only charge at 5W only.

     

    Last Words:

    So, you can see that there are numerous options for you. If you want fast charging then go for the chargers which come with 10W output capability. But you can also go for a 5W charger if you need a budget-friendly one. The choice is yours.
