iPhone X

Hey, everyone!! The hype about the news iPhone is way too much. Apple just released iPhone 8 and iPhone X(also known as iPhone 10).’ It’s like the apple C.E.O was just waiting to release everything together to create the hype. Well, where did iPhone 9 go? Oh probably it’s gone because 7 ate 9. Get it? Ellen Degenerous made that joke to. Anyhow, as an Android fan, I am not much hyped about the iPhone. I am not gonna be blogging about the iPhone 8, because it doesn’t seem interesting but I’ll blog about the iPhone X.

What to expect in the iPhone X?

.It has a bazel-less OLED screen about 5.8 inch. It also feels lighter. It has a new glass design that enables wireless charging. It has a bigger display but smaller than plus phones. It’s also water resistant and comes in only 2 colors. 

.Apple’s ‘Super Retina Display’ makes its debut. It has a Quad HD+ display with a 2436 x 1125 resolution. 

.Apple’s AirPower Pad can charge up to multiple devices. It also charges with existing Qi chargers. 

.There is no more home button in iPhone X. Flick an open app upward to return to the home screen. Control center is now a swipe-down-from-the-top gesture. 

.It does not have a fingerprint sensor anymore. Instead there is a face recolonization now. Unlock your phone by simply looking at it. 

.It has a redesigned 12MP dual-lens-camera. Portrait mode enhanced by portrait lighting. Portrait mode can also be used in selfie mode with this. 

.Siri has been over to the power button, which has been enlarged to make it easier to press.

.Animoji is the only thing I really found attractive in the iPhone X.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a new Animoji feature in iOS 11, which are animated versions of the popular emoji found on the iPhone. It will use the Face ID hardware face-scanning features to mimic you.

Also, the iPhone X is going to cost $999 which is an extremely high price right now.
The iPhone X is yet to be released somewhere in November. Good luck buying it :p

Yo everyone!! What’s up? I hope you all are fine. Today I decided to blog about this thing called “System Ui Tuner” which is an option which comes in Android. It is neat hidden menu on Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat. It gives you a bit of control over your status bar and its  pull-down menus. 

Once it is enabled, you can change the way your status  bar and pull-down settings look and feel which gives your android a more custom feel that would have required some rooting and flashing previous. 

How to enable System UI tuner?

1. Put down your quick settings, swipe down on the notifications. On the top right you’ll see the gear icon. Tapping it is a shortcut for settings but tapping it for a few seconds will open a hidden menu in settings. 

2. Long press your gear until it spins, then keep holding it until you get a popup message that says “Congrats! System Ui Tuner has been added to settings.” 

However this could be a bit risky for the future, but if you are ok  with that, go ahead and tap “Got it.” The only reason I tried this is to manage my notification settings for applications. For example, if you are using “whatsapp” and you don’t want it’s notifications every time on the scream when you are using it, then this System Ui Tuner has around 5 levels for your notification settings for every option. Scroll down to your settings, click other and switch it. That’s all folks. keep smiling!. 😀

A new Android version is arriving and it’s called “Android oreo.” Hearing that name makes me crave for Oreo :p. Android 8.0 is going to have some good features such as:

  1. It is 2x faster. You can get started on your favorite tasks more quickly with 2x the boot speed when powering up.
  2. Android oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use.
  3. Autofill remembers your logins to get into your apps at supersonic speed with your permission. 
  4. It allows you to see 2 apps at once. 
  5. You can press the notification dots to quickly see what’s new.
  6. You can teleport directly into new apps right from your browser, no installation needed. 
  7. The battery saver is quite good, it can keep your battery strong and full of life.

Android oreo will soon comes in phones such as Nexus 6p, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 5X or Pixel C. More phones are going to get the update later this year. 😀

Beware of Blue Whale Challenge

Hi everyone, today I am going to be informing you about a really dangerous game. It’s called “Blue whale challenge.” At first, I read about this game on twitter and I really didn’t believe much about it, but now it’s proven that this game exists. It’s basically a game in which you have to commit ‘SUICIDE’ in order to complete this game. It’s so disturbing and absurd. It breaks my heart to hear such a game exist. This game first originated in Russia and now it is spreading in other countries. This game is played online and once you join, you can’t leave this game. This game acts like a virus and can get all your information and if you try to leave this game, a person threatens to kill you or your family. There are 50 tasks given to you in this game. 

These are the basic tasks given to you according to the days: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I request you all not to download this game. Suicide isn’t good. Every lives matter. If you see anyone playing this game, kindly help them and stop them from this. Parents please keep an eye on what your kids do online. Stay safe.
