Google Pixel 4 review

Google Pixel 4 is the fourth smartphone the tech giant has built in-house. Google keeps insisting that it cares more about function than it does the appearance. But reactions to the Google Pixel 4 have been mixed.

Some argue that true to Google’s word, the phone’s design is sorely lacking. Others have criticized the device for failing to deliver any features and functions of significance. Regardless of whether or not these criticisms are earned, the Pixel 4 isn’t without its charm. And there are plenty of components beneath its rough exterior that are worth noting. For instance:

1). Speaking of rough exterior, the phone has what some might call a large forehead. It doesn’t necessarily make the phone ugly. But it is off-putting. That being said, the large top bezel is a necessity. It is used to house some of the phone’s functions.

2). If you look at the back of the phone, you will notice that the smooth glass surface is only marred by the camera bump. This is because the fingerprint sensor is gone. When you first acquire the Pixel 4, it will prompt you to add a profile of your face.

Once you accomplish this task, the phone will allow you to unlock it using your face and nothing else. You have to hold the camera right in front of your face for this process to work. Some technical experts have highlighted the danger this feature poses. If someone steals your phone, they can unlock it by simply waving it in front of your face.

Fortunately, Google has promised to remedy this issue in the next few months

3). Motion Sense is one of the more prominent features of the Google Pixel 4. The phone uses radar to track your hand movements. Not only does this enable you to perform tasks such as skipping through your music with the wave of a hand but the phone will detect your hand as you reach for it, and it will quickly prepare the facial recognition program, expediting the unlocking process.

Everyone agrees that the fingerprint sensor was easier and faster but the facial recognition system has its charm.

4). The Pixel 4 offers a 16MP camera (f/2.4 aperture) and a telephoto 1.2MP (f/1.7 aperture) lens. This is the first time Google has added a second lens to the camera. The result is a product that takes crisp, clear photos. Night Mode enables the phone to maintain this quality even in dim settings. There are no wide-angle lenses but the second camera provides amazing zooming capabilities.

5). As far as the performance is concerned, you get 6GM of RAM instead of 4GB. But the battery will barely get you through the day which is a disappointment.

This isn’t a bad phone. The specs are not necessarily the highest on the market. And the difference in features between the Pixel 4 and its predecessor is small. But the Google Pixel 4 isn’t a bad phone. The right word to describe it is ‘adequate’.

Anne Pro 2 Mechanical Keyboard Review

If you are looking for an interesting keyboard with a lot of effective lights, one of the best options is the Anne Pro 2 mechanical keyboard. It is an attractive keyboard with a lot of possibilities you can use in practice. Full RGB lightning and anti-ghosting effects add a special dimension to the keyboard. When you are in the mood for gaming, or you simply want to have fun, the Anne Pro 2 is there to offer full support.

What Are the Features?

The overall design of the Anne Pro 2 is quite exceptional, especially if we take into account smoothed plastic chassis on the side and carefully rounded keys that give a better touch. You can choose from two colors of the keyboard. These are black and white. However, your room will be enlightened with shades of brown, blue, and red — the main colors included in the Gateron switches.

Most mechanical keyboards have deep keys that are sometimes hard to reach. The Anne Pro 2 solves this issue with a slightly deeper position on the far side. With this position, you can control the keyboard more comfortably.

The Anne Pro 2 is a 60% keyboard, which means that certain keys are not included in the design. Arrow keys, navigational keys, and number pads are not part of the keyboard, so you can easily place it on your table without consuming too much space.

Bluetooth connectivity provides a connection with different devices. You can easily use the keyboard with your iPhone, Android device, or any laptop device with wireless functions.

When you connect the keyboard with the desired device, you can change the color scheme of the keyboard, which could be very exciting. Numerous light effects allow you to choose from a single light, breathing light, rainbow light, or you can go for some of the dynamic color schemes like French flag, Italian flag, Borealis light, and many more. It is up to you to choose what colors perform best in front of your eyes.

Is It Worth the Price?

The Anne Pro 2 is definitely worth the price. For about $60, you get a fully customizable keyboard with comfortable design and Bluetooth capabilities. Your Android, Mac or Windows will be complete with this keyboard. It is excellent for gaming and usual typing, followed by exciting colors and long-lasting surface that won’t change over time. We can say that the Anne Pro 2 is one of the best keyboards for the price when it comes to functionality and design features.

iPhone 11 Pro review

The new version of the 11th iteration of the iPhone is finally here and it is causing quite the buzz. Every iPhone 11 Pro review you read keeps trying to identify all the components that separate this device from its predecessors. Anyone that understands smartphones knows that they can sometimes blend together.

But the iPhone 11 Pro deserves all the hype it has attracted, going to great lengths to stand out from the crowd and delivering notable features and attributes such as:

1). Size

The iPhone 11 Pro is heavier than the XS by 11g but the difference is negligible. On the other hand, you can’t fail to notice that the pro is also taller (by 0.4mm), wider (by 0.5mm), and thicker (by 0.4mm). And yet that doesn’t make the device unwieldy. You can hold it with one hand with ease. It can also fit in most pockets.

2). Display

The Pro-Level OLED Screen (Super Retina XDR) is amazing, capable of displaying HDR10 content. It is also brighter than you expect, delivering sharp visuals that are rich with color and full of contrast. Some people might knock the iPhone 11 Pro because the 60Hz screen it boasts is inferior to the 90Hz displays some alternative devices offer. But the screen provided by the iPhone 11 Pro is still sufficiently smooth.

3). Specs

You get 64GB of storage which some people find disappointing because the phone takes 4K videos which are massive. However, along with 4GB of RAM, A13 Bionic Chip and a litany of connectivity options (Bluetooth 5, Ultra Wide-band, LTE, GPS, and WiFi 6, not to mention NFC and Lightning), the specs of the iPhone 11 Pro are quite impressive

4). Camera

This device has three 12MP lenses at the back. They are responsible for the ultra-wide perspective. You don’t have to move backwards to create a frame wide enough to fit your shot. With ‘Night Mode’, you can now take pictures of breathtaking quality even in dimly lit settings. Few other low-light cameras are as good as this one.

5). Battery

The iPhone XS could survive for 24 hours without charging. The iPhone 11 Pro can survive 32 hours which many an Apple enthusiast will celebrate. Apple provides an 18W USB-C fast charger. It takes a little over two hours to get this phone to a full charge.

When it comes to money, this phone costs nearly a thousand US dollars. You have to decide whether the advancements in camera technology are worth that price.
