SAMSUNG TU-8000 UHD Review (2021)

Seeing is believing and Samsung knows this very well. The global giant known for creating some of the most stunning displays across several device categories is no stranger to Televisions. The Samsung 8 series TVs are quite popular with buyers and have been in the market for a while. This particular range from Samsung strikes the right balance between performance, aesthetics, and value for money. In this review, we will look at the Samsung TU-8000 UHD TV, so let us jump right in. 

Design and build quality 

The design is minimalistic and simple that lends the TV a very sleek and modern appearance. Although the TV uses plastic for its construction, it felt sturdy enough during our testing. The bezels are quite negligible and help to add to the sleek and modern look. The thin bezels also mean that we get an almost edge to edge picture. The TV has two V-shape brushed plastic legs fixed at the bottom. The legs are sturdy and help to hold the TV in place quite firmly, although we did feel it was a bit bulky. The other noticeable design feature is the small but significant Samsung logo on the bottom bezel. Although the Samsung TU-8000 will not make heads turn with its design, it is pretty well designed for the price point. 

SAMSUNG TU-8000 UHD 2

Features 

The Samsung TU-8000 UHD TV comes in 6 sizes, 43 inches, 50 inches, 55 inches, 65 inches, 75 inches, and 85 inches. The device runs on a modified version of Samsung’s native Tizen Smart TV OS. The Tizen OS on the TU-8000 is a stripped-down version from that found in higher-end models, however, it does have most of the same features. It has a host of popular streaming apps such as Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV, and YouTube. However, the selection of apps is not as comprehensive as that on Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, or Roku TV. This is not a major drawback and the TU-8000 compensates this with other features such as Steam Link for playing games from a PC.

It also supports voice assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Samsung’s Bixby. The TV also supports screen mirroring as well as Apple AirPlay, and Samsung’s SmartThings app. Additionally, the TV features remote access to PCs, Samsung’s DeX docking system, and cloud access to Office 365, and also includes a web browser. In terms of connectivity and ports, the Samsun TU-8000 has 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, 1 Digital Optical Audio Out as well as 1 Tuner and Ethernet ports each. While using the TV as a wall-mounted display, one of the HDMI port’s becomes unusable due to being at the back. In terms of wireless connectivity, it is fairly standard and the device offers WiFi, WiFi direct and Bluetooth 4.2. The remote control is quite simple with minimal controls and voice input options. There are keys for Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Samsung TV Plus.

Performance 

The TV has the Samsung Crystal 4K processor that upscales content to 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160). The picture quality is decent and nothing amazing, which is expected at this price point. The panel is a bit dim and colour reproduction is fairly neutral and we felt it was a bit undersaturated at times. The effective contrast ratio of 7,177:1 is good but is restricted by the absence of local dimming. Once again, this is an entry-level TV and is expected. Although the TV does support HDR, the brightness is not sufficient for the footage to stand out and is average. While previewing some HDR content, we felt it lacked the depth and definition expected from an HDR video. The lack of peak brightness is very evident and is a bit disappointing but considering the pricing and the segment, it is not a deal-breaker by any means. 

SAMSUNG TU-8000 UHD

The Audio performance is decent and there is support for Dolby Atmos audio that enhances the overall experience. However, the frequency from the 20W speakers is just ok and audio distortions are noticeable especially near the maximum volume. One commendable performance feature is the input lag. The TV has a normal input lag of around 90 milliseconds, however, in gaming mode, it drops down to 20 milliseconds. This makes the TV well suited for gaming. 

In the box 

The Samsung TU-8000 comes with Remote control, 2x AA batteries, a quick setup guide manual, and Cable management clips in the box. 

Pros and Cons 

The Samsung TU-8000 is not a masterpiece of a device by any means. It falls short in a few categories such as picture quality and colour performance, a dim picture panel and the small number of HDMI ports. Another drawback is the presence of ads on the home screen. This can reduce the overall user experience as there is no option to turn the ads off. However, the device does offer some solace in terms of useful features such as screen mirroring, options for multiple voice assistants as well as AI 4K upscaling. Apart from that the device also has one of the best contrast ratios in this particular segment. It also boasts of a very low input lag factor that could make it an attractive buy for gaming enthusiasts. 

Verdict 

Our verdict is, go for the Samsung TU-8000 if you want a well-balanced package at a great price point. The design is clean, simple and the TV comes with a host of useful and handy features. The TV may not be the most stellar of performers but it does tick a lot of boxes for us. This device would make a solid buy if you can overlook some of the minor shortcomings we pointed out.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Review

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II released in 2017 is one of the best sounding wireless noise-canceling headphones in the market even today. These headphones are part of the legendary Quiet Comfort series of Active noise-canceling headphones by Bose. So, what makes these pair of headphones catch the imagination of a buyer? Let us find out in our review of the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II. We test these headphones to see if they still match up to the competition, so let us jump right in.

In the Box

So, the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II comes with a hard carry case, which is super sturdy and can take some rough handling. The headphones fit snugly into the carry case and show how flexible the headphones are. Besides the headphones and carry case, there is a micro-USB charging cable as well as a 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm audio cable. The audio jack and cable are handy especially if you have a non-wireless device that relies on a 3.5 mm jack. It misses out on a USB Type C charging port common on most devices now.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Box

Design and Build Quality

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II is not the best-looking pair of headphones out there. They look almost exactly like the previous iteration of the QC series. The new addition is the Action button on the left earcup that supports both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. They come in two colors, black, and silver, and can be generic or boring for younger users. The design is rather minimal and simple and is not for people looking to show off the styling or colors of their headphones. The plastic build only adds to this but having said that they are sturdy. The plastic body also helps to kick a few grams off the overall weight of the headphones making them ideal for long use. The body is quite durable and can take some rough handling and some twisting and turning as well.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Black

The headband is quite comfortable and makes use of Alcantara material. The earcups on the Bose QuietComfort 35 II are also quite comfortable and enhances the noise cancellation capabilities. We found that during testing, the headphones are comfortable for extended periods of listening and at 8.3 ounces are quite light. The headphones are quite flexible and can fit into most cramped backpacks, although we recommend using the carry case. Besides the Action button, there is also a multifunction button, volume control buttons. The Power button is on the right earcup. The USB charging port and audio jack are underneath the earcups and are quite well placed and easy to access.

Performance and Sound Quality

The sound quality on the Bose QuietComfort 35 II is impressive and can satisfy most regular users. However, these cannot be used for monitoring or might not be the first choice for Audiophiles. Having said that, they have a near-flat frequency response that gives room to customize EQ levels. The bass and mids are slightly higher up and the highs are clear and transparent. The headphones handle most genre’s that we threw at it quite well although the sound staging is nothing you could compare to an open back pair of headphones.

The one department where the Bose QuietComfort 35 II shines is noise cancellation. Bose has been the pioneer in Active Noise-cancelling headphones and the ANC is top-notch in these headphones. While testing the headphones with the ANC turned ON, we were able to enjoy Nightingale by Yanni on a noisy suburban street. The ANC kept all the ambient sounds off and we were super impressed. The Action button can also is programmable and can act as a level control for noise cancellation.

Battery Life and Connectivity

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II claims a battery life of 20 hours with ANC turned ON and on a moderate volume level. The charging is quick, and the headphones can churn out 2.5 hours of playback after a 15-minute charge. While testing this figure was almost spot on and using the 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm Audio jack or turning the ANC feature Off can extend battery life. The headphone offers Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and is probably a bit dated compared to a lot of the other models in the market today.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Silver

That being said, the connection is pretty stable and the Bose Connect+ app helps with an almost seamless connection. The Bose Connect+ app also controls the action button and multifunction buttons. It lets you program the action button for Alexa, Google Assistant the default or ANC level control. For iOS users, the multifunction button can work with Siri by using the Bose Connect+ App to reprogram it.

Verdict

If you are looking for no-frills bang for the buck headphones, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II is for you. It has the perfect design that provides great comfort, top-notch noise cancellation, and decent battery life. These pair of headphones are great for travelers, especially on long flights. This is because they offer great comfort and a pretty decent battery backup. Although, it might not be everyone’s first choice as they are a bit dated and lack a few features like automatic play/pause, a USB-C type port, and Bluetooth 5.0 support.

Audible Review 2021: How does Audible work and is it worth it?

I love listening to audiobooks on Audible. I hear them all the time. Listening to audiobooks has many benefits: First, there is the ability to listen to a book when you want to. While I’m in the car or train on the way to work or doing housework, cooking, or cleaning. I even like hearing audiobooks before I get ready to go to bed.

What is Audible?

Audible is a fantastic service by Amazon that allows you to listen to books.

This full review will cover the Pros and cons of audible and provide you with an in-depth review of Audible as a service and how it works.

Audible has a library of over 180,000 titles. It also has a decent collection of audiobooks in foreign languages. It is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and over 150 other countries.

How does Audible work?

You can purchase audiobooks online on Audible and download them to your computer or phone and listen to them as you wish, as simple as that.

A big advantage of listening to audiobooks on audible is that you can adjust the reading speed. Some books are read very fast, and others are read too slowly. You can easily choose to speed up or slow down the reading to meet your preferences while listening to an audiobook of your choice.
I also like to listen to audiobooks while I work, sometimes I play my music playlist from Spotify, and sometimes I hear audiobooks. Playing audiobooks while working can be a smart way to boost your productivity. Audible also has an excellent app, which I use on my Mac. The app lets you listen to audiobooks again with a single click right from where you left off.

How can I start using Audible?

First, you should go to the Audible.com website. When you arrive at the website, you will see several options. I highly recommend signing up for the 30-Day Free Trial.

I love that Amazon believes so much in this product that they let you use it for 30 days to see if it’s right for you. You will need to provide an e-mail address, which you can use to set up your account entirely and start using Audible.

How can I buy Audible books?

There are multiple ways to search for a book. You can search for a book based on its title or author. You can also search for a book based on a keyword. If the book is free, you can download it, and if it costs money, you might be able to use credits you have in your account as part of your subscription plan. If your account does not have credits, the book price will be charged. Once you download or purchase the book, it will be downloaded to your computer or play it on your mobile device.

What type of books is available on Audible?

There are several different books available in the audible program. You will find books from several different authors and in a variety of genres. You can find books of many types in the audible program such as Self-help and self-improvement, Business, Religion, Drama, History, Fiction, and more.

How much Audible by amazon cost?

You can use it for free or pay $7.95 a month for the plus subscription or $14.95 a month for the Premium Plus subscription.

Audible Plus vs. Audible Premium Plus: What’s the difference between the two subscription plans?

Both the plus and premium plus versions come with the same features like unlimited access to more than 50,000 audiobooks, support for up to 8 devices, auto-sync, and no ads. The only difference between the two plans is the monthly price, and that in the Premium Plus plan, you get one title of your choice per month and accesses to exclusive sales and 30% discounts.

The Pros and Cons of Audible

Pros

  • There are many free books on audible, and some are on sale. 
  • The Audible app is excellent.
  •  A wide selection of genres.
  •  You can always test it first free of charge for 30 days by using the 30-day trial.  

Cons

  • The only downside to the service is that it doesn’t have a lot of audiobooks in Spanish.
  • If you don’t use it monthly you might consider downgrading to the plus plan.  

 Verdict 

 I use Audible all the time. If you’re looking for an excellent audiobook service, I highly recommend Audible. Sign up for the 30-day free trial and find out if audiobooks are for you.

How can I tell if an audiobook is right for me?

If you are considering an audiobook, there are several factors to consider.
First, you will want to consider the topic. If the subject at hand is not something that you are interested in, then you are not likely to enjoy the book.

Second, you should take into consideration how much the book costs. If it is exorbitantly priced, you might wish to consider it twice before purchasing it. Furthermore, the length of the audiobook should also be considered. If you do not enjoy listening to long audiobooks, a long one may not be the best choice for you.

Last but not least, make sure you choose the author of the book. If you enjoy his other works, you will probably enjoy this book.

Apple AirPods Max Review

The much-awaited Apple AirPods Max hit the markets in late December last year and we couldn’t wait to test them out. It is the first on-ear wireless headphones from Apple and probably the most expensive in the AirPods line up. The headphones can compete with headphones like Sony and Bose. Now let us put these cans to the test and see how they live up to all the hype.

Design, build quality and comfort

The design is minimal and aligns with the rest of Apple’s line up of consumer products. It is simple, elegant, and functional like most Apple products. The build quality is exceptional, and we can easily notice the attention to detail that has gone into crafting these headphones. They feature anodized Aluminum earcups and a stainless-steel headband wrapped in a soft to touch material. The earcups are pivoted and have an extendable telescopic arm to adjust to different head sizes.

Apple AirPods Earcups

They are rectangular in shape and feature rounded memory foam cups that give a snug fit every time. The earcups have a custom-designed fabric mesh that is soft and the earcups are replaceable. They are also quite comfortable when we tried them on for an extended period of listening. Although, the cans did feel a bit heavy at 385 grams but was evenly distributed. The fabric mesh canopy on the headband helped in distributing the weight evenly and also helped reduce head pressure.

Performance and Sound quality

The sound quality of these headphones is top-notch and one of the best for wireless cans. Although these might not be for Audiophiles or professionals, the AirPods Max does deliver exceptional sound quality. What impressed us the most was the accurate sound reproduction and soundstaging at all volume ranges. The EQ is not flat but does deliver a rich sound experience across Treble, Mid and Bass frequencies.

The earcups come with 40mm custom drivers designed by Apple with Neodymium ring motors that limit the distortion to less than 1%. The AirPods Max are great for listening to any genre and we had a lot of fun testing out some heavy metal and Deep House. They do live up to the price tag in terms of sound quality and performance. Like the AirPods and AirPods Pro, the AirPods Max come with the Apple H1 chip on each earcup. The Apple H1 chip has 10 audio cores and can perform up to 9 billion operations per second and controls computational Audio Performance.

Spatial Audio, Noise cancellation and other features

The AirPods Max like its predecessors supports Spatial Audio and it was impressive when we tested it out with a movie. The inbuilt gyroscope and accelerometers sense movement and automatically recalibrates Spatial Audio parameters delivering an immersive audio experience. We felt the Spatial Audio greatly enhanced the overall experience especially while watching movies as it supports multichannel audio mixes and Dolby Atmos content. The noise-cancelling feature is top-notch again thanks to the H1 chip and the snug-fitting earpads. While we tested them at a noisy cafe, the AirPods Max managed to drown out most of the external sound. The headphones also come with a transparency mode that lets in ambient sounds.

Apple AirPods Max Review

Both noise-cancelling and transparency have just one level of setting. This is a bit limited in terms of control when comparing with headphones in the same category. The AirPods Max also have a host of sensors on each earcup like an optical sensor, position sensor, case detect sensor and an accelerometer. There is also a gyroscope on the left earcup apart from the other sensors. The gyroscope is mainly responsible for calibrating the Spatial Audio.

The headphones also feature 2 tactile controls, a push-button and a digital crown. The push-button switches between noise cancellation and transparency modes. The digital crown has multiple functions like volume control, invoking Siri, play, pause and skip of tracks. We found on multiple instances that the digital crown was accidentally pressed while adjusting the headphone. The AirPods Max, like all Apple products, syncs instantaneously with other iOS devices and can control the headphones.

Battery life and connectivity

The battery life of 20 hours as advertised does live up to the claims. We found that on testing the AirPods Max the battery did last close to 20 hours. Although you can’t turn the device off fully, the headphones enter an ultra low power mode while using the Smart Case. After using the headphones several times with the Smart Case we found that the power drain was minimal. The AirPods Max also comes with Bluetooth 5 connectivity and the connection was quite stable. The pairing is straight forward and simple with most devices but works seamlessly with other Apple products.

Verdict

Our verdict for the AirPods Max remains mixed for a few reasons. Firstly, you need to be an Apple user to enjoy full functionality. The Spatial Audio and Automatic switching functions only work on iOs devices. High-Resolution Audio Support is only for Apple’s Digital Master’s and could be a deal-breaker for some. The Smart Case does little to protect the headphones and at this price range, could be better designed. All said and done, the Airpods Max is a great pair of headphones if you are willing to shell a few extra dollars and are a loyal Apple user. They have seamless connectivity with the Apple ecosystem and could be a coveted addition for the loyal Apple user.

The first one on our list of the best 10 foosball tables for 2020 is from Giantex. It is not a full table, but a table-top version that you can easily put on top of any table at home. The great thing with this is that it is pretty cheap in comparison to the full tables and it gets the job done. It consists of four 3-man rods, a scoring post on either side, and the goal boxes obviously. It uses MDF for its construction and comes with 2 balls.

3. Giantex Foosball Table

We are upping the game a bit here. This is a mini foosball table from Giantex. The reason we call it mini is not because of the size of the actual table, but the legs. It is larger than the two boards we’ve already seen coming in at 27-inches. There are six 3-man rods in this one, giving a total of 18 players (9 on each team). The steel rods are pretty sturdy and the whole board uses MDF. The edges are smooth, so it won’t pose a threat to small children.

The rest of the specs remain the same with four 3-man rods, the manual score slider, and the goal boxes on either side. It does not come fully assembled, but they have a tool as well as an instruction manual to help you with the whole process.

The goal boxes have a different design in that they’re not concealed, but out in the open with the design of an actual net that you see behind goalposts. Two foosballs come with the package and this one uses MDF for its construction too.

New Features on Netflix: How to Make the Most Out of Your Subscription

There’s no denying 2020 has been a standout year for Netflix. With Covid-19 keeping a large portion of the world’s population indoors, people had nowhere else to turn other than towards their television sets. 

In fact, the coronavirus has been such profitable business for Netflix that their stock price plummeted when Pfizer announced that a vaccine was showing promising signs, suggesting that post-pandemic viewership would pale in comparison to their early year figures. 

Nevertheless, Netflix has proceeded to roll out several new features this year to try and make the user experience better than ever. So, if you’ve got a subscription and you haven’t already spotted them for yourself, maybe it’s time to give a few of them a try!

Change the playback speed

Netflix now allows phone and tablet users to change the speed of the show they are watching with their new playback controls. Users on mobile devices can now tailor their viewing experience by choosing from the following playback speeds: 0.5x, 0.75x, 1.25x, or 1.5x 

This is a nice added feature that has been around for some time on other streaming services such as YouTube and has finally made its way to Netflix. This is great for people who want to reduce the amount of time they spend watching TV shows, as you reduce viewing time by up to 25% if you watch content at the highest speed.

With that said, this new feature hasn’t arrived without its fair share of controversy. Hollywood directors Judd Apatow and Brad Bird publicly condoned the move, proclaiming that “distributors don’t get to change the way the content is presented.”

Remove titles from your “Continue Watching” row

We’re all guilty of watching a show or two that we would rather our significant half didn’t find out about. Whether you’ve been sneakily binge-watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” or the entire collection of “Glee,” you can now hide what you’ve been watching by deleting them from your “Continue Watching” row.

All you have to do is head to this page, where you can select an option to hide from your viewing history. Now you can watch all of your guilty pleasures until your heart’s content.

Randomize your viewing with the “Shuffle” feature

If you’re the kind of person that spends more time deciding what to watch than you actually spend watching, this feature is designed for you!

 Netflix has recently rolled out a “Shuffle Play” option that is designed to help kill the indecision most people suffer from when they’re greeted with the homepage. After all, there is a ton of great content on Netflix, so how can you possibly choose what to watch?

However, the shuffle feature isn’t completely randomized, as it is programmed to play a title that they believe you’ll be interested in, such as shows or movies similar to the one you’ve already watched, titles in genres you frequently view, or titles you’ve saved to your lists. Still, it’s a great way to save yourself time and try some new series that you perhaps wouldn’t have given a chance to. Who knows what hidden gem you might unearth?

Get rid of your Netflix’ leeches’

Are you the person in your group of friends that pays for Netflix while everyone else has somehow ended up with your password? Or, do you keep logging in to your account to find movies and tv shows that have already been viewed that you’ve never seen before? If so, you’ve probably got a few “Netflix leeches” hanging on to your account trying to score a free subscription on your behalf. 

While some people are cool with it and don’t mind a few freeloaders, others can get pretty upset over it, especially when the Netflix algorithm starts throwing out bizarre shows that “you might like” based on things you haven’t even watched.

Well, now there’s a way to resolve the situation. All you have to do is log in to your Netflix account and head over to “My Account > Sign out of all devices” to get rid of all those pesky piggy-backers in one fell swoop.

Bonus tip: Watch US Netflix from another country

If you weren’t already aware, Netflix has a different catalog of titles for each country it is operating in. This means you might not be able to access your favorite TV shows while away on a work trip or a family vacation; you need to try this trick. 

If you’re a US citizen and want to watch US Netflix from another country, all you have to do is find a VPN that works well with Netflix and select a server located in the United States. Once you’ve connected, the next time you log into your account, it will be as if you’re viewing from the comfort of your own home.

This is also a great trick for when your Netflix has become a little stale from binge-watching, or you feel like you have run out of things to watch. To freshen up your library simply choose another country on your VPN and take a look at what they have to offer that your current Netflix doesn’t.

At the time of writing, the USA and Canada have the largest selection of titles (5879). However, they also have the lowest average IMDb score of 6.95. Where Azerbaijan, Portugal, Georgia, Ukraine, and Russia are all tied for the top spot with a rating of 7.13, albeit with a considerably smaller selection. 

So next time you’re looking for a new series, why not try out the latest Portuguese drama or Russian comedy series? Who knows, it could be your new favorite show!

Top Online Shopping Tips For The Holiday Season

It’s time for the best time of the year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 deals are starting to appear on the web. So as you get ready for the 2020 holiday season, it’s time to start planning and thinking about what you want to buy for your loved ones (and yourself as well!). 

So how to shop online during the holiday season? If you’re looking for a cool gadget or a gift idea that will make a difference in someone’s life, consider buying something unique and fun; a gift that will provide long-term benefits and not something that will be forgotten within a year or so. Without further adieu here are some of the top online shopping tips for this upcoming holiday season: 

1) Don’t wait until the last minute to shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.

Online Shopping Tip #1. You should start early. There are tons of sales and discounts that are already available online since a lot of brands are promoting discounted products since the start of November. If you have a particular gadget or product in mind, don’t wait for the last minute, go and search it online now and make sure you are monitoring it before it goes out of stock. Who knows? you might be able to get it on sale today.

 2) You should always buy from a reputable online store or shop.

 There are many online merchants and stores that sell a lot of products at discounted and attractive prices but most of them don’t have the best customer service or return policies. Always check whether the website in question has enough positive reviews or some social media proof before you buy. You can always Google the website’s name and see if anything alerting pops up. It’s always worth checking if your item is on sale on Amazon.com, especially their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sections.

3) Don’t buy something just because it’s on sale. 

Plan ahead and make sure you know which products you want to buy. I highly recommend using a to-do list app like Any.Do to create a list of all the products and gifts you would like to buy so you keep to your budget and don’t fall for offers and discounts of products that you don’t really need.

 4) Consider buying refurbished gadgets and products.

 Refurbished products are great for those who want to save money and get the product at a discount but still want to enjoy good quality. These products have been tested and repaired by the manufacturer so they work just fine, and will save you a lot of money. On Amazon.com you can find a lot of refurbished products and gadgets that are on sale for Black Friday 2020.

 5) Use cashback sites, you can save a lot of money like that. 

There are lots of cashback sites that will give you money back when you shop online. For example, Honey and Rakuten, who usually have big promotions going on that include giving you up to 10% back. This Money does add up, and you will be surprised how much of it you can save within just a few weeks using one of these services during the holiday season. In addition, they provide a lot of discount codes that help you save even more. Check out our full review of Honey, and start using it today.

6) Don’t forget about Cyber Monday as well. 

There are tons of great deals after Black Friday, especially on gadgets and electronics. Make sure you pay attention to the Cyber Monday deals and sales that are coming right after Black Friday.

7) Don’t forget to use coupons when available. 

Before you do the cart checkout and purchase a new product, check quickly if there are any promotions or Coupons available for this website. I highly recommend using RetailMeNot. 

8) Consider buying a product from eBay. 

Sometimes the product or a gadget you’re going after won’t be available on Amazon or Macy’s but you will be able to find it on eBay at a significant discount. However, don’t forget to make sure the seller has good reviews and a high rating so you won’t have any issues.

9) Don’t forget to also focus on yourself. 

If you are planning on buying a lot of gifts this holiday season, then don’t forget to get something for yourself as well, You deserve it!

Apple’s iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max and 12 Mini: All You Need to Know

This is for all the people who could not watch Apple’s event. It was on October 13th and had some really cool announcements. For starters, we have the all-new Apple iPhone 12. But wait, we also have the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Mini. There were a lot of emphases given by the company on 5G and all of their new phones come with support for 5G. Let’s take a look at each of these and decide which one you should buy next.

iPhone 12 Mini

The company spoke a lot about an all-new design, but in reality, it is a very familiar one. My personal favorite iPhone is the iPhone SE Gen 1, which had the earlier design of the iPhone 5, with the sharp edges but really powerful hardware for a small phone. They did the same thing with the iPhone 12 Mini. It is marketed as the world’s smallest 5G phone, but I think it is also a powerhouse. It comes with the Apple A14 Bionic chipset, which is the first 5nm chipset in the world. There are 6 CPU cores, 4 GPU cores, and a 16-core neural engine.

Apple iPhone 12 Mini

Apple claims that the processor can even challenge some laptops. They did not disclose the battery capacity nor RAM. The display is top-notch and it is their best Super Retina XDR display. It has a ceramic shield for protection which is 4 times better in terms of drop performance. There are 2 cameras at the back, both of which are 12-megapixel sensors. The front-facing camera is again another 12-megapixel sensor. All the cameras have night mode. The iPhone 12 Mini starts at $699.

iPhone 12

This is a very confusing choice. Apart from the fact that it is slightly bigger than the Apple iPhone 12 Mini, I don’t see a very compelling reason to go for the iPhone 12. But again, for $100 more, you get a bigger display, a slightly less prominent notch, and slightly better battery life as well.

Apple iPhone 12

The rest of the hardware remains exactly the same. Instead of a 5.4-inch display, it is a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with Ceramic Shield coating. The processor is the same, the cameras are the same, even the thickness is the same. Prices start at $799 for the iPhone 12.

iPhone 12 Pro

Next up, we have the Pro variant of the iPhone 12. Again, the majority of the spec sheet remains the same. There was a time when Apple put the Bionic chipsets inside the Pro variants and the slightly less powerful SoCs in the base models. That is not the case now. The display is exactly the same. The dimensions are exactly the same. It is slightly heavier than the iPhone 12 at 189g against the 164g of the iPhone 12 and 135g of the iPhone 12 Mini.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro

We have a third camera at the back, which is a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. The storage options start at 128GB instead of 64GB for the Pro variant. A big difference in the iPhone 12 Pro is the presence of a LIDAR scanner. LIDAR sensors can detect a scene, create a depth-map, and give you a better and immersive AR experience. The engineers have also used this sensor to improve low-light camera performance. Prices for the iPhone 12 Pro start at $999.

iPhone 12 Pro Max

Again, the same plot but a different protagonist. Same hardware in terms of processor, display, battery, and cameras in comparison to the iPhone 12 Pro. The only difference here being the larger 6.7-inch display. The larger display causes the pixel density to be slightly lower at 458ppi. The phone is also the heaviest at 228g. The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at $1099.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max

Which iPhone to buy?

What Apple has done here is ingenious. They have not discontinued any of their other phones this year. As of writing this post, there is the iPhone SE, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and the iPhone 12 Pro available in the market. The price difference between the starting models of the first four phones is $100 each. So, a person who wants to spend $399 on the iPhone SE might look to spend $100 more to get a slightly better phone and this works like a domino. There is one feature, ‘MagSafe’, which allows for seamless attachments to the new iPhones and it is available across all of them. All of them have IP68 certification. All of them support 5G. We would suggest you have a clear idea of your requirements and go for the phone that fits the bill.
