The Best Bluetooth Headphones

Here we are, it’s that time of year where many retailers offer great discounts, and leave us wondering which gift should we buy? If anything, buying any product, whether it is for yourself or for a loved one, sometimes gets very tricky. Let me talk about myself, when it comes to Bluetooth headphones, some products can be very expensive, and so I’d really want to do an extensive research to make sure I don’t regret my purchase. The team over at reviews.com recently published their detailed review, where they tested 20 different Bluetooth headphones to find out the best Over-Ear, On-Ear, In-Ear, and truly wireless Bluetooth headphones.

30-second review:

According to audio experts, the best Bluetooth headphones come down to a few core concepts. They should feel good to wear, be easy to carry and use, and fun to listen to. After testing 20 popular models, we found four styles outperformed their competitors.


Best Over-Ear

Bose QuietComfort 35

This lightweight pair of headphones sounds great, filters out noise, and gently cushions your head. (about $499 in Lebanon)


Best On-Ear

Jabra Move

The Jabra Move boasts the features and vocal clarity of premium on-ear headphones for a fraction of the price. (about $119 in Lebanon)


Best In-Ear

BeatsX

A flexible neckband and snug earpieces keep these headphones comfortably in place. (about $180 in Lebanon)


Best True Wireless

Apple AirPods

They’re smaller than most wireless earbuds, and they didn’t cut in and out when listening to music or phone calls. (about $2oo in Lebanon)

Bixby button can now be completely disabled!

Samsung’s own digital assistant, Bixby, can now be fully disabled! Well no… I don’t believe Samsung will do that anytime soon. I use Bixby continuously for certain tasks and uses, I really proved to be helpful. But when it comes to the general opinion, it seems like Bixby is pretty hated. Many apps have been developed that focus on remapping the Bixby button, so that it could be used to launch something else, such as the camera or Google Assistant, but Samsung was quick at launching updates that disable those apps. Eventually, the company succumbed and rolled out an update that allowed users to disable the Bixby button. Even then the button could still be used (by holding it down) to summon Bixby. It seems like this isn’t the case anymore, with the latest Bixby update, Samsung has put an end to that, and now users have the options to disable the button entirely.

3 Things you should know before buying your first camera!

I had a conversation recently with a couple of people about cameras and their specifications. The most question I received was “what is a good “budget” low light camera?”, and the answer to that question was never really simply. Many things go into defining what a good camera is and it’s never a matter of megapixels only. So, I thought of writing the following blog post to help people understand more about what to look out for when buying a camera! But do keep in mind that I am no professional photographer, but only a guy that took some time to read about camera specifications and what they mean.

Galaxy S8 and Note 8 users can now disable the Bixby button.

Samsung announced Bixby right before its launch of the Galaxy S8, but the digital assistant didn’t become available to users until recently. From the reviews, I have mostly seen online and from what I have heard from friends, I must say that Bixby is the most misunderstood digital assistant out there.  Continue reading “Galaxy S8 and Note 8 users can now disable the Bixby button.”

Huawei surpassed Apple in sales – becoming the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer!

Just as expected and explained earlier in a previous post, Huawei did exceed Apple in global sales recently (according to counterpoint). This might not remain the case, as Apple’s new iPhones will probably return Huawei to its third position. Becoming the world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer, even for a brief moment, indicates that the company’s goal to become the world’s first smartphone manufacturer (by 2021) isn’t impossible. Nonetheless, Huawei still has a long way to reach Samsung. This year, Huawei shipped 38.5 million smartphones, while Samsung shipped 79.8 million (Source: IDC).

iPhone 8  and iPhone X – Thoughts and impressions

With Apple’s recent unveiling of its new phones, we can only be sure of one thing, that these are really exciting times. I spent the better part of yesterday trolling people I know that are iPhone fans and woke up today to more than 10 messages telling me “They are good phones, what are you talking about?!” or something to that effect. Which tells us one thing, that some of my friends don’t get jokes.

I won’t be discussing the phones specifications/hardware/software, but rather focus on some features highlighted in the event. Here are my actual unbiased thoughts (as an Android user) on the new iPhones and those features (no bashing):

Mobile AI processor by Huawei

Source: Huawei

At IFA 2017, Huawei announced the launch of the Kirin 970, its new SoC (System on a Chip) with AI capabilities, which the company is promoting as a mobile AI computing platform. The Kirin 970 is powered by an 8-core CPU and a 12-core GPU. It features a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which when compared to the 970 CPU, should deliver 25 times the performance with 50 times greater efficiency. Which means that the Kirin 970 can perform the same AI computing tasks faster and with less power. According to the company, in an image recognition test benchmark, the Kirin 970 can process 2000 images per minute, which is faster than any other chip on the market.
