OnePlus 6: specifications and features

Unlike last year, this time OnePlus made sure to adopt the new trending design of the year right from the start. Unfortunately, this trending design is none other than the notorious Notch design. On the other hand, the phone’s specifications and pricing are nothing short than troubling for all competing brands.

Galaxy S9: Slow-Mo approved!

The S9 and S9 Plus have been in the market for a couple of months now and they have been receiving very good reviews. Two features that are continuously highlighted when discussing the two phones are the Super-Slow-Mo and the mechanical variable aperture. My initial impression when looking at the two new phones was that Samsung should have provided more to win the market this year, but it seems that the phones excelled at what was provided that it still manages to grab attention among fierce competition.

Samsung has been teaming up with Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy, the two guys behind the famous YouTube Channel also known as “The Slow Mo Guys”, since the release of the two devices to provide users with a better understanding of the Super Slow-mo feature.

Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus – First Impressions

Usually I leave my impressions and opinions of the devices until the end of my posts, but not today. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are really great phones and they do bring a lot to the table, but if you own a Galaxy S8 or a Note 8, then it isn’t much of an upgrade. Let’s get started…

Best Android Tablets in 2018

Written by Jerry Hildenbrand, Android Central


Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (Best Overall)

The two most important things to have in a full-size Android tablet are a great screen and software that uses every inch of it. That’s what makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 the best Android tablet.

An amazing screen from Samsung is no surprise. The 9.7-inch 2048×1536 Super AMOLED on the Tab S3 carries on the tradition, and it’s simply the best display on a tablet. Android and Samsung mesh to provide a great software experience and the new S Pen and its 4096-level pressure sensitivity makes taking notes or producing digital artwork a breeze.

An essential guide to customizing your Android phone

Written by Ara Wagoner, Android Central


Be different, not the same is more than a tagline when it comes to Android.

Android provides us the freedom to change nearly everything about our phones, especially when it comes to our home screens. We aren’t stuck with a bland grid of icons; we don’t live in our app drawers the way iPhone users do. We can add widgets; we can add search bars and gestures; we can have blank space wherever we want, not just at the bottom of an unfilled page! And if we don’t like the way our home screens look with the launcher that came with our phone, we can ditch it and use a third-party launcher, opening us up to new worlds of customization and theming.

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)

You definitely need a fast charger for your iPhone X

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?
