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.
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.
This lightweight pair of headphones sounds great, filters out noise, and gently cushions your head. (about $499 in Lebanon)
The Jabra Move boasts the features and vocal clarity of premium on-ear headphones for a fraction of the price. (about $119 in Lebanon)
A flexible neckband and snug earpieces keep these headphones comfortably in place. (about $180 in Lebanon)
Best True Wireless
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)
It’s great that the new iPhones come with fast charging, but Apple has decided not to include a fast charging brick in the box. Customers that are looking to fast charge their iPhones will have to buy a new $50 charger that supports fast charging from Apple.
The standard charger that is included in the box (4.85V/0.95A) will fully charge the iPhone X in about 3.5 hours (the same goes for the iPhone 8 Plus). You can charge the iPhone using an iPad charger (24W), which will charge your phone 30 minutes to an hour faster. On the other hand, Apple’s $50 USB-C 29W charger will be able to charge the iPhone X from 0 to 50% in about 30 minutes!
At a first glance, many might be hesitant to consider buying the fast charger, but in my opinion, that should be the second thing you invest in (after a protective case), if you’re buying the new iPhone X. Let’s be honest, who wants to wait 3.5 hours for a phone to fully charge?
Last week Google announced some great devices and others that just confused me, at a really boring event. Google, keep them products coming, but also keep the event short next time. We still love you. To summarize last week’s event in two words it would be “Artificial Intelligence”. A direction all tech giants have been taking and focusing on. This event, Google expanded the uses of its Google Assistant and just added it to a bunch of new devices. Continue reading “Google event’s recap: A bunch of new pixels”

Two weeks ago, Google introduced “video” to Google Maps (Android only for now). The feature is available to users that are part of Google’s Local Guides Program, a program that allows users to review restaurants, shops, and different areas they visit. Using this feature, users will be able to shoot 10-second videos right through the Google Maps app or to upload 30-second videos from their phone’s storage.

As a gamer, having a desktop monitor that has a great resolution and offers high FPS, is important for a great viewing and gaming experience.

Among the smartphones launched at the beginning of 2017, the LG G6 was one of my favorites, and now, the company is back again with yet another great device. The LG V30 has just been announced two days ago and this device is an absolute beauty, inside and out. The least to say is that this phone has a headphone jack! The company is probably planning to steal some spotlight with this device, which is most probably going to be difficult to do, due to the Note 8, iPhone 8, Mate 10, and Pixel 2. Q4 of 2017 is just filled with highly anticipated smartphones. Now, let’s have a look at what the phone has to offer.
It’s safe to say that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 was one of the most, if not the most, anticipated Android phones of 2017 – 2018. We didn’t really have to wait till its unpacked event to know its design and most of its features, as almost everything was leaked over the past month. The unpacked event kicked off yesterday and as usual, Samsung really knows how to put on a good show. But it isn’t about the spectacular show and presentation, it is about the phone. Before I get into it, I must say that I was pretty much looking forward to the Note 8’s release, especially that it’s the new iteration of last years phone, which was a great phone while it lasted. So, let’s have a look at the phone’s specifications and features, and then let’s discuss it all.
At last, the Nokia 8 is here, and it comes with a great specs sheet. Just like other Nokia phones, the Nokia 8 is also manufactured by HMD Global. The new Nokia smartphone is the first actual Nokia Flagship running Android, that comes with an impressive specs sheet. Given that the Galaxy S8+ just won the EISA best smartphone award, let us have a look and compare both phones’ specs sheets.
