No more Android Tablets?

If you own an Android tablet then you probably know how neglected it is, receiving very few software updates throughout the year, while many apps not being optimized to run correctly on the tablet. Well, we can now with all confidence, officially say goodbye to Android tablets. Google has recently updated the Android website and removed the tablet tab entirely. The website can now be used to learn about Android on various devices, but not tablets.

Google’s focus has long ago shifted towards Chromebooks, but it’s unclear if we’ll be seeing any Chrome OS tablets anytime soon.

Apple lied… who would’ve guessed?

20180527_204120

One lawsuit after the other, it seems like Apple can’t have a break! Recently Apple was sued over butterfly defective keyboards used in 2015 MacBooks and their 2016-2017 MacBook Pro while knowing that the keyboard was defective before launch. The main defect with the new butterfly mechanism is that keys stop working once enough dust builds up under the keys. As a result, customers were made to pay between 400 to 500 dollars in repairs in cases where the laptop was no longer under Apple warranty. A second lawsuit has been recently filed, with this one claiming that Apple has breached several new laws some of which is due to the company not honoring the warranty.

Apple’s nightmare doesn’t end here, court documents revealed that the company new that the iPhone 6 would bend (remember bendgate?) before releasing the phone. Honestly, of course, they knew… smartphones undergo many durability tests before launching, but here it is a new PR nightmare. Apple, get your shit together. Oh, and my MacBook Pro’s keyboard better not stop working.

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).
