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

Facebook Messenger Copies Snapchat

Hey all, I hope ya all having a good weekend, well I having midterms next week, so meh. Anyhow what’s going around here? First came snap chat stories, then Instagram stories, then came WhatsApp stories and now Facebook stories. Like seriously every social network here wants to go be snap chat. I had no idea about this Facebook stories, until yesterday. I hate Facebook messenger too.

The only stories are like are the snap chat stores, honestly. Facebook stories will soon look exactly like Instagram stories with little circular profile photo of the user and their friends appearing on top of the news feed. Facebook stories will have a blue ring around the profile photos of users who post a new story. Stories for Facebook messenger has already gone live as new Messenger day feature. It lets users share photos and videos to a story within the Messenger app adding filters and stickers. You can comment on them and stories last for around 24 hours. Users can use built-in privacy features, something which differentiates from Snapchat and Instagram. Since, I don’t like Messenger or Facebook that much, I refuse to use these stories. So yeah, enjoy the stories if you like to. 😛

WhatsApp text status might come back

Mar-11-2017 By Maniha

Ever since the whatsapp stories came up, people haven’t been happy with it. Due to a lot of complaints from the users, whatapp is bringing back the text status. The new ‘Status’ update does not let users keep a text-based status and also not for anymore than 24 hours, similar to snapchat. The removal of the earliar feature is a disadvantage for some people as they sometimes like to keep informative statuses. For example “Studying for exams, don’t contact me. ” and many others. I myself was not amused by this feature on whatsapp. So whatsapp is bringing it back except this time this feature would be called tagline. So let’s see how this goes now. The tagline feature has arrived in Windows phone 2.17.82 and whatsapp beta for iOS 2.17.6.21, it is soon expected in Android devices as well. 

iPhone 8 may have no ports at all

Before apple got rid of the standard headphone jack in favor of making you buy bluetooth phones. 

It seems that the iPhone 8 will be made entirely from glass, and while drilling precision holes in glass is possible, it generally requires expensive tools and specialist knowledge to set up on an industrial state. The basic job of your phone’s lightning or USB port is to get power to the battery but as far as apple is concern, it’s just a useless port people use for jail-breaking iPhones which apple hates a lot.  Apple is cutting the port to make iPhone thinner. And since anything from data preservation to contacts can just be stored remotely, it seems like a no-brainer. But there are some consequences to wireless charging and a port-free iPhone that we should consider. I actually told my mum about the no port thing and she was like “aah they are ruining the iPhone.” 😛 

Whatsapp update

Hello everyone, I hope ya all are doing fine, this is my first post in 2017, lol. But I am back now. Ok this blog post is actually about the lame whatsapp update. Snapchat has been one of the most fun and amazing social network by far now, so now whatsapp has copied its idea too.  First it was possible to write statuses on whatsapp but now you can’t. It has become like snapchat, there is something like whatsapp story on it now. You can take photos, use emojis, edit photos and the stories disappear after 24 hours which is just like snapchat. It’s possible to set up privacy like let only a few of yours contacts to see your story. If you haven’t noticed, the options of gifs has also been included in whatsapp which is a good feature but I am not really fond of the stories feature.  Peace love and unity 😀

Snapchat glasses

Hello everyone! How is it going? I hope you all are doing great. I haven’t been blogging because you know semester finals and I have been busy with stuff. So, yesterday I was watching a video by “finebros” on youtube where teens were reacting to “Snapchat glasses”. That attracted me a lot. I saw that video then I realized these glasses seem so cool. I’m gonna tell you about them. 

We all sure love snapchat because it’s like the most fun app ever with all those fabulous filters. These glasses only work with Snapchat but the great thing you can do with them is film what you see and the battery lasts a long time. Cool right? You can record literally anything with them. It’s a lot easier to skate and snap a video using these glasses, it will save you from accidents, you can focus on the road. They feel like regular glasses and they look great on anyone who wears them. The video quality is awesome, if the light is good then you’ll get a decent video/ picture. The spectacles record circular video. They don’t need to be connected to a phone unless you want to post or view snaps. They don’t fall of your face if you jump around. The audio is good but not great. Very hard to take selfies with it. There are no face filters available yet: if snapchat glasses get the face filters and stuff, I’ll probably get these glasses. 😀

Pokemon Go

Hey, guys, I am writing this post all over again, because umm the previous post got messed up somehow, so I thought to delete that one and write it all over again. As you can all see, being a pokemon trainer has been a dream of everyone. Well it has been my dream. This game has been on such a huge hit. Everything is about pokemon. It is the number one game these days.

In Pokemon go, you actually travel in the real world in search of a pokemon. When you download this game, you get to make your own avatar and give it any nickname you like. I gave my avatar the nick name “I am a cake.” funny right?.  Next thing you do, is that it brings you to the real world. You have to open the app, it works with internet using your gps. You are given 3 pokemons from which have to catch one. The basic starter pokemons are Bulbasor,Charmander and Squirtle. I did not realize that earlier but if you want a Pikachu, you gotta ignore those Pokemons and walk away to other locations and you might find a pikachu.

Catching pokemons and information about things

To catch the Pokemon you gotta throw pokeballs at it, you gotta make sure you aim properly because in the game you can go out of pokeballs which is bad. You might need to go to a Pokestop nearby to get  pokeballs, or you can buy some pokecoins with real world money to shop for them and other products. You might need to go to a park or something to find a grass pokemon or go to a lake or pond or sea to find a water pokemon. Whenever you get a level up, you get items or pokeballs. Sometimes you get eggs and you need to walk 2km,5km or 10km to hatch the eggs. Each pokemon come with its own candy, that you need to use to evolve them. You can transfer a pokemon to professor to get pokemon candy. Once you are in level 5, you can join a gym for gym battles. I haven’t joined any team yet. The game is simple. Be careful while playing pokemon go though, don’t go to strange places. The game is officially released in some countries now, but not in mine, so I just used a US gmail account to play it. Some people use apk to play it on Android but I don’t trust. On iPhone, you will need to make a US iTunes accounts. Enjoy the game. I love it  because I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. 😀
