Features


The smartphone sensors measure physical quantities and transmit them to the application processor. The phone's accelerator is a built-in electronic component that measures tilt and motion. A fingerprint sensor is one of the easiest and most secure ways to protect your smartphone. The proximity sensor detects when a user is holding the phone near their face during a call and turns off the display to prevent keypad presses and battery consumption from the display. The C Note has Dual SIM capability, which means that you can insert two different SIM cards and use them both from one phone.

AOC AGON AG251FZ

AOC AGON AG251FZ





Specifications and Features


                           The AG251FZ offers a very good range of connectivity options with DisplayPort 1.2a, 2x HDMI (one with MHL), 1x Dual-link DVI and 1x VGA connections offered. DisplayPort or HDMI are needed to support the refresh rate up to 240Hz, including FreeSync support from compatible AMD graphics cards via DP (48 - 240Hz range). The digital interfaces are HDCP certified for encrypted content and the video cables are provided in the box for all four video connections. The screen has an external power supply and comes packaged with the power cable and power brick you need. There are also 4x USB 3.0 ports available with 2 located on the back of the screen with the video connections, and 2 on the right hand side of the screen for easy access - with one have fast charging capabilities as well. A headphone jack and mic input are also provided on the right hand side of the screen, while the back of the screen also has an audio output and an alternative mic input. There are integrated 2x 3W stereo speakers on this model as well.

                                 The AG251FZ comes in a black and silver design with defined edges and straight lines. The bezel around the screen is matte black in finish with a plastic which has a brushed (black colour) aluminium style along the bottom edge. There is an AG251FZ label in the top right hand corner in a subtle dark grey colour and a dark red "AGON" brand in the middle of the lower bezel. In the bottom right hand corner are small, subtle light grey labels for the OSD controls and a small power LED. This glows white during normal operation. The OSD control buttons themselves are located on the bottom edge of the screen out of sight, but they are easy to find thanks to the labels on the front bezel. The bezel measures only 10mm along the sides and top, and is a little thicker at 17mm along the bottom edge. The back of the screen is finished with a matte black plastic and a dark red plastic section as shown in the photos above. There is a silver coloured AOC logo on the back and the stand attaches in the middle. This needs to be screwed on to the screen when you first unpack it from the box. A word of warning, it took us a while to find the proper screws to attach the stand, but they were taped to the polystyrene section for the stand. The stand can be removed to reveal VESA 100mm mounting support if needed. You will notice that the stand features a useful carry handle at the top for moving the screen round or taking it to LAN parties. You will also notice the small protruding clip on the left of these images. That is a headphone holder clip which can be swung up and down when needed (i.e. it's not always out like the pictures show!). The base of the stand is a silver metal finish and provides a wide and sturdy base for the display. Height adjustment is also available with smooth movement but is a little stiff to move. At the lowest setting the bottom edge of the screen is ~80mm from the top of the desk, and at maximum extension it is ~200mm. This gives a total adjustment range of ~120mm which is decent.

                  Side to side swivel is smooth and easy to use and offers a decent enough adjustment range. The rotation function is a bit "bumpy" and stiff to operate, but is at least available for those who might want to use it.The materials were of a good standard and the build quality felt good as well. There was no audible noise from the screen, even when conducting specific tests which can often identify buzzing issues. The whole screen remained cool even during prolonged use as well which was pleasing. The back of the screen features the interface connections as shown above. On the left hand side of the screen (shown in the top picture) there are 2x USB downstream and 1x USB upstream ports. There is also the power connection towards the middle of the screen. On the right hand side of the screen (shown in the bottom picture) there are the video and audio connections. There are 1x DL-DVI, 2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, 1x D-sub VGA, an audio out, microphone input jack and the small connection for the remote accessory. The right hand side of the screen offers a few easy access connections. There is the headphone hanger clip at the top as shown, then an additional mic input, headphone jack output and 2x USB ports, one with fast charging capability. It's useful to have these available for easy access on the side of the screen, especially for gaming where you might want to quickly and easily attach additional devices and headphones/mic.

OSD Menu

                             The OSD menu is controlled through a series of pressable buttons located on the bottom right hand edge of the screen. The labels for the buttons are on the front bezel, making them easy to find and identify. There is quick access (from left to right) for the input selection, game preset mode selection and shadow control slider. The OSD menu is split in to 7 sections shown horizontally along the top part of the software. As you scroll left and right using the corresponding arrow buttons, you are shown which settings are then available in each section. The first 'luminance' section has the settings for contrast, brightness and gamma modes along with access to the ECO mode (a series of preset locked brightness levels) and dynamic contrast ratio. The second 'image setup' section is greyed out here as that's for when you connect over VGA, and we are using DisplayPort. The 'color setup' section has options for the colour temperature modes and access to the RGB channels for calibration. The 'picture boost' section is specifically for enabling a bright frame section of the screen where the brightness and contrast can be separately controlled for that frame. You can adjust the size and location of the frame as well. The 'OSD setup' section allows you to adjust the OSD software itself. The 'game setting' section has some useful options available. There is access to the game preset modes, the shadow control slider, the low input lag setting, the slider to boost the game colour, the low blue light modes (not really a gaming setting) and the overdrive control. Overall there was a very good range of options available from the menu. Navigation via the OSD buttons felt a bit fiddly though and the software was a little laggy as you move between sections. This was actually linked to your active refresh rate it seems, with a much bigger lag when running at 60Hz than the high refresh rate options. Drilling then in to each section and option was a bit of a pain. The software did at least remember which section you were last for in for a while when you go back in to the menu which was useful. The additional switch accessory made the whole thing quite a lot easier though and we liked having that available.


Panel and Backlighting
Panel Part and Colour Depth

                      The screen features an AU Optronics M250HTN01.0 TN Film technology panel which is capable of producing 16.7 million colours. This is achieved through a 6-bit colour depth with additional Frame Rate Control (FRC) added. The panel part is confirmed when dismantling the screen as shown below:

Screen Coating

                           The screen coating is a medium anti-glare (AG) offering. It isn't a semi-glossy coating, and isn't as light as some modern IPS type panels either. It's in keeping with other TN Film panels we've tested. Thankfully it isn't a heavily grainy coating like some old IPS panels feature, although there is some graininess noticeable. It retains its anti-glare properties to avoid too many unwanted reflections of a full glossy coating, but does not produce an too grainy or dirty an image that some thicker AG coatings can. There were some slight cross-hatching patterns visible on the coating as well but only if you looked very closely.


Backlight Type and Colour Gamut

                              The screen uses a White-LED (W-LED) backlight unit which is standard in today's market. This helps reduce power consumption compared with older CCFL backlight units and brings about some environmental benefits as well. The W-LED unit offers a standard colour gamut which is approximately equal to the sRGB colour space. Anyone wanting to work with wider colour spaces would need to consider wide gamut CCFL screens or the newer range of GB-r-LED type (and similar) displays available now. If you want to read more about colour spaces and gamut then please have a read of our detailed article.


Backlight Dimming and Flicker

                              We tested the screen to establish the methods used to control backlight dimming. Our in depth article talks in more details about a common method used for this which is called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). This in itself gives cause for concern to some users who have experienced eye strain, headaches and other symptoms as a result of the flickering backlight caused by this technology. We use a photosensor + oscilloscope system to measure backlight dimming control with a high level of accuracy and ease. These tests allow us to establish

1) Whether PWM is being used to control the backlight
2) The frequency and other characteristics at which this operates, if it is used
3) Whether a flicker may be introduced or potentially noticeable at certain settings

                     If PWM is used for backlight dimming, the higher the frequency, the less likely you are to see artefacts and flicker. The duty cycle (the time for which the backlight is on) is also important and the shorter the duty cycle, the more potential there is that you may see flicker. The other factor which can influence flicker is the amplitude of the PWM, measuring the difference in brightness output between the 'on' and 'off' states. Please remember that not every user would notice a flicker from a backlight using PWM, but it is something to be wary of. It is also a hard thing to quantify as it is very subjective when talking about whether a user may or may not experience the side effects. At 100% brightness a constant voltage is applied to the backlight. As you reduce the brightness setting to dim the backlight a Direct Current (DC) method is used, as opposed to any form of PWM. This applies to all brightness settings from 100% down to 0%. The screen is flicker free as a result which is great news.

Contrast Stability and Brightness

                         We wanted to see how much variance there was in the screens contrast as we adjusted the monitor setting for brightness. In theory, brightness and contrast are two independent parameters, and good contrast is a requirement regardless of the brightness adjustment. Unfortunately, such is not always the case in practice. We recorded the screens luminance and black depth at various OSD brightness settings, and calculated the contrast ratio from there. Graphics card settings were left at default with no ICC profile or calibration active. Tests were made using an X-rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter. It should be noted that we used the BasICColor calibration software here to record these, and so luminance at default settings may vary a little from the LaCie Blue Eye Pro report. We conducted these tests in the default settings. The brightness control gave us a very good range of adjustment. At the top end the maximum luminance reached 366 cd/m2 which was a little shy of the specified maximum brightness of 400 cd/m2 from the manufacturer but still more than adequate we're sure. There was a good 307 cd/m2 adjustment range in total, and so at the minimum setting you could reach down to a low luminance of 58 cd/m2. This should be adequate for those wanting to work in darkened room conditions with low ambient light. A setting of 23 in the OSD menu should return you a luminance of around 120 cd/m2 at default settings in this preset mode. It should be noted that the brightness regulation is controlled without the need for Pulse Width Modulation, using a Direct Current (DC) method for all brightness settings between 100 and 0% and so the screen is flicker free. We have plotted the luminance trend on the graph above. The screen behaves as it should in this regard, with a reduction in the luminance output of the screen controlled by the reduction in the OSD brightness setting. This is not a linear relationship as adjustments between 100 and 90 control a steeper luminance range, but this becomes linear from 90 to 0.

General and Office Applications

                           With a 1920 x 1080 resolution, the desktop real estate  of the AG251FZ feels a step down compared with all the high resolution panels we've tested, and the 27" 2560 x 1440 models we are used to using day to day. You do lose a large amount of desktop space, and although side by side split screen working is possible, it's not as easy due to the more limited resolution and space. With a 0.2825mm pixel pitch, text is comfortable and easy to read natively, providing a sharp and crisp image. It is not as sharp as the 1440p panels we've become accustomed to, or of course any ultra HD/4K resolutions where scaling is used, but it is perfectly adequate. For this size screen, 1920 x 1080 is about your limit of sensible resolution without needing to use operating system scaling options.
                         The moderate AG coating of the TN Film panel could be considered a bit grainy, especially on white office backgrounds to a lot of people. It's not as clear as modern IPS coatings or any semi-glossy solution. Still, it's not as grainy as old IPS panels and is on par with other TN Film matrices we've tested. Perhaps the main issue with this panel technology though is the restrictive viewing angles, making contrast and colour tone shifts a bit of a problem when it comes to colour critical work. They are the same here as other TN Film panels, being restrictive especially vertically. The screen is fine when viewed head on though really for office and text work, but for colour critical work or photo editing etc you'd be better off with an IPS-type panel. The default setup of the screen was a bit restrictive for normal uses, as the gamma is set up more for gaming, but thankfully this was very easy to adjust without a calibration tool via a simple change in the OSD menu. That provided a good default setup then for day to day office work, once you've turned the brightness setting down. There are 3 blue light filter modes (weak, medium and strong) offered in the menu if you want to add further eye care protection and might be worth experimenting with for prolonged office use or text reading.
                         The brightness range of the screen was very good, with the ability to offer a luminance between 366 and 58 cd/m2. This should mean the screen is perfectly useable in a wide variety of ambient light conditions, including darkened rooms. A setting of ~23 in the OSD brightness control should return you a luminance close to 120 cd/m2 out of the box. Otherwise you might want to try the settings from our calibration section. On another positive note, the brightness regulation is controlled without the need for the use of the now infamous Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM), and so those who suffer from eye fatigue or headaches associated with flickering backlights need not worry. There was no audible noise or buzzing from the screen, even when specifically looking for it using test images with a large amount of text at once. The screen also remains cool even during prolonged use.
                             There are quite a few extra features on this screen for office environments, even though it's primarily a gaming screen. There are 4 USB ports, including 2 easy access on the right hand side of the screen and one featuring fast charging support. There's a mic, headphone and audio out connection along with the integrated stereo speakers which should be fine for the odd YouTube clip or mp3. There are no ambient light sensor, card reader, motion sensor or anything else provided which can sometimes be useful in office environments. There was a good range of ergonomic adjustments available from the stand allowing you to obtain a comfortable position for a wide variety of angles. The VESA mounting support may also be useful to some people as well.


Lag

                         We have written an in depth article about input lag and the various measurement techniques which are used to evaluate this aspect of a display. It's important to first of all understand the different methods available and also what this lag means to you as an end-user.
Input Lag vs. Display Lag vs. Signal Processing
                      To avoid confusion with different terminology we will refer to this section of our reviews as just "lag" from now on, as there are a few different aspects to consider, and different interpretations of the term "input lag". We will consider the following points here as much as possible. The overall "display lag" is the first, that being the delay between the image being shown on the TFT display and that being shown on a CRT. This is what many people will know as input lag and originally was the measure made to explain why the image is a little behind when using a CRT. The older stopwatch based methods were the common way to measure this in the past, but through advanced studies have been shown to be quite inaccurate. As a result, more advanced tools like SMTT provide a method to measure that delay between a TFT and CRT while removing the inaccuracies of older stopwatch methods.

                           In reality that lag / delay is caused by a combination of two things - the signal processing delay caused by the TFT electronics / scaler, and the response time of the pixels themselves. Most "input lag" measurements over the years have always been based on the overall display lag (signal processing + response time) and indeed the SMTT tool is based on this visual difference between a CRT and TFT and so measures the overall display lag. In practice the signal processing is the element which gives the feel of lag to the user, and the response time of course can impact blurring, and overall image quality in moving scenes. As people become more aware of lag as a possible issue, we are of course keen to try and understand the split between the two as much as possible to give a complete picture.

                           The signal processing element within that is quite hard to identify without extremely high end equipment and very complicated methods. In fact the studies by Thomas Thiemann which really kicked this whole thing off were based on equipment worth >100,1000 Euro, requiring extremely high bandwidths and very complicated methods to trigger the correct behaviour and accurately measure the signal processing on its own. Other techniques which are being used since are not conducted by Thomas (he is a freelance writer) or based on this equipment or technique, and may also be subject to other errors or inaccuracies based on our conversations with him since. It's very hard as a result to produce a technique which will measure just the signal processing on its own unfortunately. Many measurement techniques are also not explained and so it is important to try and get a picture from various sources if possible to make an informed judgement about a display overall.

                          For our tests we will continue to use the SMTT tool to measure the overall "display lag". From there we can use our oscilloscope system to measure the response time across a wide range of grey to grey (G2G) transitions as recorded in our response time tests. Since SMTT will not include the full response time within its measurements, after speaking with Thomas further about the situation we will subtract half of the average G2G response time from the total display lag. This should allow us to give a good estimation of how much of the overall lag is attributable to the signal processing element on its own.



Lag Classification

                 To help in this section we will also introduce a broader classification system for these results to help categorise each screen as one of the following levels:

Class 1) Less than 16ms / 1 frame of lag at 60Hz - should be fine for gamers, even at high levels
Class 2) A lag of 16 - 32ms / One to two frames - moderate lag but should be fine for many gamers. Caution advised for serious gaming and FPS
Class 3) A lag of more than 32ms / more than 2 frames - Some noticeable lag in daily usage, not suitable for high end gaming

                      We have provided a comparison above against other models we have tested to give an indication between screens. The screens tested are split into two measurements which are based on our overall display lag tests (using SMTT) and half the average G2G response time, as measured by the oscilloscope. The response time is split from the overall display lag and shown on the graph as the green bar. From there, the signal processing (red bar) can be provided as a good estimation. The screen features a 'low input lag' mode option in the menu. First of all we tested the screen with this turned off. This showed a total average display lag of 13.5 ms as measured with SMTT 2. Taking into account half the average G2G response time at 1.3ms, we can estimate that there is ~12.2ms of signal processing lag on this screen which pretty low anyway. Switching the low input lag mode on returned improved results, with an estimated 3.7ms of signal processing lag now instead. This represents a very low lag which shouldn't represent any problems in gaming.

                        One annoyance with this was when you're connected to a FreeSync system. As with most FreeSync screens we've tested, the screen seems to always think you are operating with FreeSync, even if you disable the option in the AMD graphics card software. We believe this is a known bug and in many cases it doesn't really cause any issue. You can tell that is happening here as in the OSD menu the vertical refresh rate is listed as "FreeSync", regardless of whether you've enabled the option in the graphics card control panel. The issue with this though is that when FreeSync is active (or even not active, but detected), the 'low input lag' option is greyed out and not accessible. So from a FreeSync system you will have to live with the slightly higher lag, although this is still very low really and shouldn't represent any major issues. We've asked AOC if there is a reason why this option is greyed out when using FreeSync and will update this section accordingly when we have more info.
Conclusion

If you appreciate this review and enjoy reading and like our work, we would welcome a donation to the site to help us continue to make quality and detailed reviews for you.

                    The AG251FZ was the first 240Hz native refresh rate screen we've tested and it delivered very well when it came to its primary focus of gaming. The additional boost in frame rate and motion clarity were decent and extends the possibilities for high frame rate gaming from LCD screens by a significant amount. Thankfully the TN Film panel offers very fast response times which can keep up with the refresh rate demands, unlike some other panel technologies we've seen where they struggle -especially where overclocked refresh rates are introduced. The addition of AMD FreeSync will be very useful for those who can't power the 240Hz at 1080p consistently and this is so far the only FreeSync option in this space with 240Hz support. There was a very good range of additional gaming features and options in the menu, and we liked the included switch accessory which made changing options much simpler and quicker.

                        There is a useful low input lag option as well which worked well at reducing the already pretty low lag of the screen. Unfortunately this didn't seem to be available when using a FreeSync system which was a shame, but don't be put off as the lag is still not bad even without it. We would have liked to see an added blur reduction backlight option if we were being picky, but that would have presumably added to the retail cost, and most people will probably want to use FreeSync anyway given the wide refresh rate range and demands on your system pushing anywhere near the 240Hz.

                      In other areas the screen had a decent out of the box setup once you made a simple change to the gamma mode, and we were pleased with the flicker free backlight and wide backlight adjustment range. You will have to live with some of the inherent limitations of TN Film technology, most notably the restrictive viewing angles so just be aware of that. There is a very good range of connections and stand features, and the additional easy access connections on the side of the screen were handy. It's a well thought out screen with plenty of extras and features, and certainly a very interesting option for gamers.

Moto G5 review

Moto G5 review


                              

My first glimpse of the new Moto G 5 and G 5 Plus phones at M W C in February and I must say I was impressed at the time. Not by the features and specification on offer for such a small amount of money, though that remains a key attraction, but by the design and the feel of both handsets. It’s easy to get carried away with things in the heat of the moment at the launch of a new thing, especially on press day at M W C when so much is going on. However, it’s a mark of the job new owner Lenovo has done with these handsets that, in the cold light of day now I have review amples in my hands, that they look just as good. The Moto G5 has a slightly more rounded, friendly appearance than the Plus and it has a slightly smaller screen by 0.2 in. The Moto G5 is also a little more practical than its pricier brother, with a removable battery, micro SD card support (up to 128 GB) and dual-SIM support. The Moto G5 Plus has a micro SD slot and dual-SIM support but you can’t replace the battery.

                         Both phones now include a new front-mounted fingerprint reader and have Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box, but the Moto G5 still doesn't have NFC, so you can't use Moto’s cheapest handset to pay for goods in place of a contact less credit card. One key thing to note with the Moto G5, however, is that the screen is 0.5 in smaller this year than last year. It's a surprising downgrade but on the plus side there’s no denying  the Moto G5 is more pocket able and easier to use one-handed than before. In fact, this is a lovely phone to hold – not slippery and with just the right amount of grip – and the fine-grained matte finish on the rear is a big step forward in terms of sophistication. Note, however, that the phone isn’t all metal – only the rear panel is. The edges are constructed from plastic just as before.

Display

                         So, the screen is smaller than the Moto G4, but that shouldn’t be a problem. The resolution is the same as last year – 1,920 x 1,080 – so it looks just as sharp. Alas, along with the reduction in size, my testing reveals that the Moto G5 has also taken a hit on quality. Max brightness is down from 540 to 471 as is the amount of the s RGB color space the screen is able to reproduce (down from 90% to 85.8%) and contrast is lower as well. The result is a slightly duller, less vibrant display than on the Moto G4. It isn’t night and day, but it adds up to an inferior display, nonetheless. Performance and battery life Under the hood, it's a similar story. The base Moto G5 has a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage (with that micro SD slot available to get you more space). There’s a 3 GB version available on the Motorola website, too, and this is the model I was sent for review.
                          As you can see from the Geek bench 4 figures below, the answer to that question is not a lot. In fact, my numbers indicate the Moto G5 is ever-so slightly slower, although I’m going to be generous here and say the variations are within the margin of error. More significantly, though, the Moto G5 lags behind the Honor 6x and the Lenovo P2, phones that have emerged from the shadows in recent times to challenge the Moto’s dominance.

Camera

                        Motorola says it has improved the camera over the G4, though, adding phase-detect auto focus to speed up capture. However, core specifications remain the same with an aperture of f/2 and resolution of 13 megapixels. These look to be impressive specifications on a sub-£200 phone. They were last year, and the Moto G 4's camera was very good indeed at the price. However, on the evidence of our tests the new camera module in the G5 isn’t all that wonderful.

                        First things first. Outdoors, in brightly lit conditions, the Moto G 5’s rear camera performs splendidly. It captures photographs with even crisper details and richer colours than the Moto G4. Exposures are balanced and focus assured. It’s an accomplished snapper and the improved camera software is a bonus, too. I particularly like its ability to automatically detect hand shake and snap multiple frames, upon which it offers you the choice between two frames, the second of which is often sharper than the first you fired off. Very useful. Indoors in low light, however, it’s not great. Photographs of our still life scene exhibited significantly higher levels of noise, smearing and hand-shake induced blur than on the Moto G4, and enabling the flash doesn’t help much either. Although it doesn’t wash out the image, it does add an unnatural orange-pink tinge to the whole scene that looks far from attractive.

           What you said after reading slash on MOTO 5G, are you interested in, oke get it soon, its better for you.

Huawei MateBook X

Huawei Mate Book X

 Huawei MateBook X



                                 Huawei has been conspicuously quiet on the PC front since it introduced the Mate Book last year, but now the company is breaking its long silence with three new Windows 10 devices. Starting off with something new, Huawei introduced the Mate Book X as the company’s first Ultra book. The 13-inch laptop comes as a direct competitor to the Mac Book Pro, and largely draws its styling from Apple’s best-selling notebook. Huawei’s Ultra book stands out with a fingerprint reader integrated into the power button, a 3:2 aspect ratio display and a fan less cooling system that uses aerospace-grade phase-changing material. In terms of power, the Mate Book X comes outfitted with 7th generation Intel Core i 5 and i 7 processors, 256 or 512 GB of S S D storage and up to 8 GB of RAM. Huawei claims the laptop’s 41.4 W h battery will see it through nine hours of constant use.
Alongside the Mate Book X, Huawei also announced an updated version of its tablet, christened the Mate Book E. It comes with the typical year-over-year upgrades including the latest Kaby Lake Intel Core i5-Y and m 3 processors. Huawei has also improved the ergonomics of its 2-in-1 tablet, with a new case that extends its range of motion to 160 degrees. The number of Pogo pins required to connect the tablet to the base has also been reduced from seven to three, which should help resolve some docking issues seen on the original model.

                              The Mate Book was Huawei’s first shot at building a Windows 10 laptop, but it largely missed the mark on several aspects. But Huawei is back with a trio of new laptops that look to build out the company’s computer offerings while addressing the issues from its first attempt. First up is the Mate Book X, a 13-inch Windows 10 ultra portable that fixes a lot of the problems users had with the original Mate Book. It features a traditional aluminum clam shell design instead of a 2-in-1 configuration, has Intel Core i 5 and i 7 processors instead of the less powerful Core m series, and can allegedly last up to 10 hours while watching 1080 p video on a single charge. The rest of the Mate Book X’s hardware is similarly impressive, the 13-inch display offers a 3:2 aspect ratio at 2 K resolution with a 4.4 mm bezel (it is not a touchscreen, however), storage comes in either 256 GB or 512 GB S S D options, while the power button doubles as a Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint reader. The only qualm I have is RAM, which will come in 4 GB or 8 GB options, but given the portable-focused nature of the Mate Book X, 8 GB should be enough for the average user. The Mate Book X uses USB-C, and offers a pair of ports , one for charging, and one for data transfer. But to make the transition easier, Huawei is including a Mate Dock 2.0 USB-C dongle in the box in some markets, which offers a regular USB Type-A port, DVI, HDMI, and a second USB-C port for pass-through charging.

                        Huawei is also partnering with Dolby for what it calls the Atmos Sound System, which combines hardware and software elements from Dolby to offer a better sound experience. Having briefly demoed the feature, the Mate Book X certainly sounded good (along with some fun 3D audio tricks), but given the lackluster nature of most laptop speakers, it’s not a high bar to clear. only had a few minutes to try out the Mate Book X, but it made a great impression. It’s thin, light, fast, and if Huawei’s promises about battery life hold up in real-world testing, then the Mate Book X could be a really good portable laptop option that could offer a legitimate challenge to Apple’s languishing Mac Book Air line. Of course, that will also largely depend on price, which Huawei didn’t offer in advance of the announcement. Next is the Mate Book E, which is an updated version of the original Mate Book. It offers the same basic design (including the leather folio keyboard), but upgrades the screen to a 2 K panel from 1080 p and improves the magnets connecting the folio to the table. Most importantly, Huawei claims that the Mate Book E offers up to nine hours of battery life, which would be a significant improvement over the original, assuming it holds up.

                    Lastly, there’s the Mate Book D, which Huawei didn’t have available to demo in advance. The Mate Book D is a 15-inch computer targeting a wider, mid range group of customers. Specs are less interesting on the Mate Book D — a 1080 p display, configurations offering Intel’s i 5 and i 7 processor, 4 GB, 8 GB, or 16GB of RAM (depending on how much you’re willing to pay), and a choice between a 1 TB hard drive by itself or supplemented with an additional S S D. Some models will also offer a dedicated Nvidia Ge Force 940 M X graphics card, which should be good for casual gaming. Mate Book X has a Window Hello-enabled fingerprint reader right in the power button. That's interesting because you only need to press it once – to power on the device – and the laptop "remembers" your fingerprint, logging you into Windows 10 automatically. Most Windows 10 laptops with fingerprint readers are dual-stage: you press the power button, and then wait for login screen and use the fingerprint reader. That process is now just one step with the Mate Book X.
In my time with the Mate Book X, I came away very impressed. It's light and exquisitely built, and Huawei made all the right decisions, including a large Precision touch pad. One drawback: The two USB Type-C ports do power and data but are not Thunderbolt 3 capable.
thanks.

The 'Surface Pro 5

The 'Surface Pro 5



                                  The new 2017 Surface Pro remains largely unchanged from the Pro 4, but has one significant change Microsoft no longer considers it a 2-in-1 device, but rather a laptop, as the company believes it provides everything you'd need on a laptop. The new device is named as the 'new Surface Pro', it doesn't follow the numeric sequence many thought it would follow. So no, it isn't called the 'Microsoft Surface Pro 5'.

Microsoft Surface Pro
                                 Controversially, Microsoft isn't including a Surface Pen with any new Surface Pro device. It's claimed that Microsoft sees many upgrading from the Pro 4, but to me that seems like a sneaky tactic to make people purchase the accessory.

Microsoft Surface Pro: Features and specs

                             The new Surface Pro looks identical to the Pro 4, but has several fundamental differences. The biggest news is the inclusion of new Intel Kaby Lake processors. This time around, the new Surface Pro will start shipping with the Intel Core m processors too, which sit aside the Core i 5 and Core i 7 processors. This also means that its internal graphics have received a cyclical update, with the Intel H D 615 and 620 in the Core m 3 and Core i 5 models respectively. The Core i7 model comes with the more powerful Iris Plus 640 i GPU.
                              Memory configurations haven't changed, with 4-, 6- and 16 GB models available. Its internal memory has received a healthy boost with PC I e NV Me technology now used throughout its internal S S D s, with a choice of 128-, 256-, 512 GB and 1 TB are available. Another notable change is its quoted battery life. It's now 13.5 hrs, up from 9 hrs on the Pro 4. This sizable increase in battery life will be good news for those looking to use the laptop without the sight of a power plug. if you like listening to music directly from your Surface Pro, you'll be pleased to know that the 2017 version focuses on delivering better sound. A front-facing 5-megapixel camera and microphone are also used to access Skype and Windows Hello features, which are both fundamental parts Windows 10. There's also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera for taking pictures of scenery. USB Type-C is still missing from the new Surface Pro, with Microsoft opting to maintain its proprietary connector for charging. On the plus side, there's still an SD-card slot, mini-Display Port, a standard USB Type-A 3.0 port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth v 4.1. Unfortunately, the rumors of a stunning 4 K display aren't true. The same 2,736 x 1,824 (267 p p i) resolution is utilized with a Pixel Sense display, which allows multi touch and a visually accurate display.
                               The Surface's accessories have also received an update, with both the keyboard and pen receiving healthy updates. The Type Cover keyboard now has slightly more travel distance, allowing you to type more naturally. The pen has double a number of supported pressure levels, allowing you to more accurately draw or write on your new Surface Pro.Finally, you can look forward to LTE variants of the new Surface Pro, with Microsoft announcing that in Fall 2017 there will be devices that can independently from an access point.

WHAT THEY SAID!

                                   The Surface Book has picked up a recent specification boost with the release of a performance-focused base that increased the battery life and graphical capability of the uniquely hinged laptop. Next up is an update to the Surface Pro range, and recent rumors around next year's Surface Pro 5. The Surface Pro sits in the space between full-blown laptops and the tablet market, alongside the iPad Pro. This is one of the growth markets in portable hardware, as ID C's latest report on premium devices notes:
                            Surface Pro and iPad Pro success comes from them being a notebook replacement, as well as the quality of the devices," said AHMADUN. "The devices are increasingly adopted across consumer and commercial segments, and while in the consumer segment both appeal to the 'prosumer' user, in commercial the adoption varies depending on the activities of the end user. iPad Pro is more popular for creative types of jobs, whereas Surface is more likely to be adopted by top executives, partly due to Windows' strong legacy in enterprise.
                           The Surface Pro range of ultra portable tablets have never threatened to top the sales charts, but the visibility that the Surface brand offers is worth far more than the short-term revenue from sales. It is an attractive machine for the geekerati to use as it offers an unsullied view of what Microsoft believes Windows 10 can offer, it is popular with influencer who want to stand out in a sea of similarly designed Windows boxes, and it gives Microsoft a presence in a growing market. Assuming that the new Surface Pro 5 ships with the Kaby Lake architecture in early 2017, the Surface Pro 5 could be pitched as being more powerful than Apple's latest range of Mac Book and Mac Book Pro laptops. There are many technical trade-offs to make when deciding on laptop specifications - Apple focused on maintaining a long battery life on the new Mac Book Pro machines and of course the volume of processors required for the launch of arguably one of the fastest selling laptops of recent years would have been prohibitive.
                          With the increased specifications and capability of the Surface Pro 5, Microsoft can portray itself as a company working on the bleeding edge of hardware, it can leverage the prominence of the hardware to promote Windows 10 as a platform and this can all be used to increase the reach and awareness of the cloud-based services.


Smart Router Synology RT 2600 ac

Smart Router Synology RT 2600 ac



                       Synology’s the latest company to take a stab at the 'smart router' concept, but while the Taiwanese device-maker has a long and well-respected history with network-attached storage ( N A S) boxes, it’s actually fairly new to the router game – the RT 2600 ac is only its second offering, following up on the RT 1900 ac that was released back in late 2015.  There’s a fairly good reason for that: despite no lack of effort, it’s tough for outsiders to break into the router game – it's a space that, for the last decade, has largely been dominated by big players like Net gear, Link sys, D-Link and T P-Link.
                 Synology has been fighting a bit of an uphill battle then, but its prowess in the NAS arena has bought it a lot of good will. With the latter products, it’s managed to foster an enthusiastic community of NAS fans and developers, meaning there’s a lot of third-party applications that enhance and extend what its NAS devices can do. And that’s something Synology has been hoping it’ll be able to transfer over to its routers.

Hardware features & specifications

                   Smart router differ from its forebear,  Externally, it shares the same general 'function-over-form' vibe as the 1900 ac — it’s textured black body isn't particularly sleek or sexy but, on the plus side, it at least doesn’t call too much attention to itself. Its hind feet are longer than average, so the back does sit high and means the whole thing tilts at a sharp angle. From the outside, the most immediately-noticeable change from its forebear is the RT 2600 ac’s addition of an extra W i - F i antenna, making for a total of four (all of which are removable) to match the internal 1,733 Mbps (on 5 GHz) and 800 Mbps (on 2.4 GHz) '4 x 4' 802.11 ac radio setup.

                     Round the back there's the same quota of four Gigabit Ethernet ports alongside a Gigabit internet (aka WAN) port – there’s no built-in ADSL, VDSL or cable modem, so you’ll need to B Y O in that area. There’s also a pair of USB ports – one 2.0 on the back and one 3.0 on the side — which are ostensibly for plugging in storage devices, although you can also attach a printer or 3 G/4 G USB dongle to give yourself a fallback connectivity option in the case your main broadband line fails. And for photography fans, there’s additionally an SD card reader on the front edge of the router – potentially handy for backing up photos and video to any USB-connected drives. Synology’s built a shed load of physical buttons on the RT 2600 ac, too – as well as the relatively common WPS and power buttons, there’s also a Wi-Fi on/off switch and an eject button for safe removal of USB drives or SD cards. However, this unit's most significant changes over its predecessor are its the internal hardware upgrades — like the RAM increase from 256 MB to 512 MB and the trading-up from a dual-core 1 GHz processor to a faster 1.7 GHz model (specifically the ARM Qualcom IP Q 8065). The 802.11 ac Wi-Fi chops have likewise been bumped up from AC 1900-class to AC 2600 – as we mentioned above, that means you get theoretical speeds of 1,733 Mbps on 5 GHz and 800 Mbps on 2.4 GHz (that’s compared to the RT 1900 ac's 1300 Mbps and 600 Mbps, respectively).
                     Now, while that’s not quite cutting-edge in terms of Wi-Fi specifications – AC 2600 devices have been available for a couple of years now, and we’ve since seen the arrival of theoretically-faster multi-radio AC 3200 and AC 5300 routers – for home and small office needs, that spec should be ample for the next few years. And it includes all the useful 802.11 ac Wi-Fi features like MU-M IMO and beam-forming, which can both help to increase transfer speeds and more-evenly share available wireless bandwidth when multiple devices are connected. Rounding out those internal specs is 4 GB of internal flash storage for running the OS and installing any desired extra apps or services.

Performance

                  Lots of factors can get in the way of actually seeing any router's top wireless speeds, but compared to other similar AC routers, the RT 2600ac performed well in most of the benchmarks we ran. In medium-range 5 GHz tests with a 3x3 802.11 ac adapter in a desktop PC, we managed maximum transfer speeds of around 77 MB/s (around 620 Mbps), which was a good deal faster than similar results from a Net gear R 7000 device – the latter’s our resident AC 1900 router, and tapped out at 60 MB/s transfer speeds. To get anywhere near the RT 2600’s claimed 1,733 Mbps 5 GHz speeds, you’ll need an 802.11 ac adapter with matching 4 x 4 wireless capabilities – those are, to be honest, few and far between, especially when it comes to built-in options in laptops and USB adapters. However, the beauty of MU-MIMO is that it’s designed to share that wireless bandwidth around more fairly among multiple clients. And when you’re surfing the web, you’re generally only going to be using a fraction of that – it’s operations like file transfers, game-streaming (like via Steam or N vidia’s tools) and similar bandwidth-intensive local activities where those tops speeds are going to be of great benefit.


Software features

                     As with its original router, speed and specs aren’t really Synology’s main selling point with the RT 2600 ac – it’s the software running under the hood that’s the truly unique element. The company's Synology Router Manager ( SRM ) interface essentially works just like the one on its NAS products – it’s accessed through a web browser, but instead of a standard web page, you’re instead presented with a virtual desktop environment, complete with icons to launch apps and a task bar that lets you switch between running 'apps', access settings and see status information at a glance. All the router’s apps open in 'windows' that you can drag around and re-arrange within this browser interface, just like on your PC. This can make it a bit easier to grasp for complete router newbies, but the real reason you’d choose a Synology router is the ability to download NAS-grade apps to extend functionality. 
                To make full use of most of these, you’ll need to also plug in a USB hard drive. That includes the likes of Download Station, a sophisticated download program that supports not just HTTP and FTP-based downloading, but BitTorrent and use net too; Cloud Station, which lets you host your own cloud-storage server (a-la Dropbox or Google Drive) and remotely sync files to Windows, Mac, Linux, i OS and Android devices; and File Station, a file manager that lets you access the contents of any USB-connected drives from directly within the SRM web interface – a blessing that means there’s no clumsy browsing for network shares through your PC's File Explorer (or Finder for those on Macs). If you want to copy, move or delete files, just open up the browser interface and launch File Station and you can jump right in – you can even drag and drop files between multiple File Station windows, exactly as you would on a PC.
                  There’s a heap of higher-end 'apps' too, like a built-in V P N client and server, a passable D L N A media server and per-device parental controls, with two preset block lists (letting you choose to block either 'malicious' or 'malicious and adult' sites) and the ability to either black- or white list additional domains beyond that preset. You can also set a schedule to allow or deny devices internet access at certain times of day, and there’s even Apple Time Machine support for backing-up Macs.

Best 5 G Smartphones and Network

Best 5 G Smartphones and Network 

           
                  


                 Hello gadget lovers, you know that new technology has appeared it named 5 G, which make your network browsing, googling or transferring data could be flash as real, now you must know which any smartphone those are using 5 G on it Operating System, Using a 5 G network is just like moving in a fast car. In a report, it has been discussed that 5 G will be 40% better than 4 G. Now the official specifications of 5 G are out; it will provide 20 G b ps download speeds and 10 G bps uploads which are huge in any perspective. The service will work up to vehicles moving up to 500 mph, that’s huge too.  

 well Read as follows :

ZTE Gigabit Phone

                 The Chinese mobile creator Z TE, on February 26, declared its Gigabit smartphones and also stated that the download speed of this device could reach up to 1 Gb ps. In the engine, of the new ZTE’s device, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor alongside Snapdragon X 16 LTE modem combination. It is a first 5 G smartphone from ZTE in the world. It runs on a unique technology that makes it more than ten times faster than 1st gen 4 G LTE service. The mobile can give speed up to 1 Gb ps. The smartphone, not a full-fledged 5 G device we can say but it is seriously touching it. Still, we don’t have 5 G network support anywhere, and we can only expect it by 2020. But the phone has not launched it just announced so need to get much interested.

Samsung Galaxy S8

                   We can expect the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 8 to comes with a 5 G network. It is also possible that the Samsung is testing its 5 G network for this smartphone, they may want to implement 5G support to upcoming phones Galaxy S 8. For the specifications, it will be powered by SD 830 processor. It will come with 6 or 8 GB RAM. The screen will be 4 K this time. However, the screen size is still a mystery. Still, we can’t comment more on the smartphone, but stay with this post we’ll update you if we get any news.

Nokia

                  Nokia over that’s all you are thinking? But not at all Nokia is still a King in 5 G Network. As per the report, Nokia has tested  5 G, or you can say Nokia is working on 5 G Network which is 40 times more faster than 4 G. It will enable to download an F H D movie in just seconds. In a report from NDTV, it has been stated that Nokia is currently in talk with Indian Companies for 5 G trails.

Nokia Phones

                 As we reported that Nokia is coming back in Smartphones industry with H M D Global. In which Nokia collaborated with H M D to make smartphones with Nokia brand name. So in future Nokia may implement its 5 G technology and can launch a smartphone with 5 G supportable network. If they are going to make a comeback, then it is possible that they are going to bring 5 G technology to their smartphones too.

Apple Phones

                  We should not forget that Apple is still a king of smartphone Industry and they can do anything to maintain their reputation. As we believe Apple has the best technology in the smartphones department and if all others are rumored to come with 5 G support then why Apple would be left behind. In a report from light reading, it has been discussed that Apple is quietly hiring for the 5 G technology. It just a clue which makes us believe that yes the giant Apple is also working on 5 G networks. They may implement the 5 G network in upcoming phones like Apple iPhone 7 s and 7 s plus or maybe we’ll see in iPhone 8 if it takes too long.   

                yup that's it you should know, now then 5 G will be your good partner networking, just wait for future, may will appear newest technology about it, may be named 6 G 7 G or any other names that should be faster then it.



AMD's Wraith CPU cooler

AMD's Wraith CPU cooler 



                Hello, are you gaming or designing, will be better you read it bellow, it could help you for any kind of job, trough computer PC, that is cooler for AMD Wraith CPU. now  read as follows : 
              AMD is acutely aware of this problem. Going by this comparison video, the company's last-gen stock cooler for many of its CPUs is sorely lacking in the acoustics department. The Wraith cooler, introduced at CES, is meant to change that. At first glance, the Wraith easily takes the title of the nicest stock cooler I've seen. This heat sink has four copper heat pipes that wind through a fairly dense fin array. A hefty copper base plate serves as the go-between for these heat pipes and the processor's heat spreader.

              The Wraith's shroud is gussied up with an LED-back lit AMD logo that's invisible when the cooler is off. This looks neat, and it's pretty fancy for a boxed heat sink. Problem is, unless you have a case with a big window and you're looking at the cooler at just the right angle, this logo will be quite difficult to see in use. It does look nice on our test bench, though. Taking the Wraith apart reveals a Delta Electronics Q F R 0912 H 92-mm fan. AMD uses four foam isolators on the fan frame that might provide a bit of extra vibration reduction while the fan is spinning. The power connector for the LED logo is integrated into the four-pin fan plug.

            AMD billed the Wraith as a constant-fan-speed cooler at C E S, but the included fan doesn't seem to come with any special sauce to enforce that restriction. The Gigabyte GA-990 FX-Gaming motherboard that AMD sent me to test the Wraith with didn't have any trouble treating the fan as a regular P WM spinner with a range of controllable speeds.Since it's a boxed CPU cooler, the Wraith can't be purchased on the open market. Instead, AMD will include this cooler exclusively with its FX-8370 CPU right now. This $200 chip offers eight Piled river cores (or four modules, if you prefer) running at 4 GHz base and 4.3 GHz turbo speeds, all wrapped up in a 125 W T DP. The F X-8370 seems like it'll be a worthy challenge for this heat sink.

              Installing the Wraith on a Socket AM 3+ board is about as simple as it gets, so we're not going to devote an entire section to the mounting process for this review. Snap the Wraith's two metal clips over the motherboard's plastic mounting points, push a lever to the left, and that's it. We don't even have to apply thermal compound, since AMD includes a pat of it on the base of the Wraith. Now that the cooler is mounted on our CPU, let's see how the Wraith performs.

Our testing methods

Here's the full configuration of our test system:

Processor                       : AMD FX-8370
Motherboard                 : Gigabyte GA-990FX-Gaming
Memory                        : 8 GB AMD Memory DDR 3-1600 (2x4 GB)
Graphics card                : Asus Strix Radeon R9 Fury
Storage                          : Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD
Power supply                : Cooler Master V550
OS                                 : Windows 10 Pro


CPU cooler testing regimen is as follows:

10 minutes idling at the Windows 10 desktop
20 minutes of the Prime95 Small FFTs CPU torture test
10 minutes idling at the Windows 10 desktop
Our thanks to AMD for providing us with the FX-8370 CPU, the Gigabyte GA-990FX-Gaming motherboard, the Wraith cooler, and the memory for our test system today. Thanks to Kingston, Asus, and Cooler Master for their contributions to our test rig, as well.

                 Our test data is logged using AIDA 64 Engineer. To rule out a given case's cooling performance as a factor, we ran our tests on an open bench. The ambient temperature in our testing environment was about 70° F. Noise measurements were performed 6" directly above each cooler using an iPhone 6 S Plus running the Faber Acoustical Sound Meter application. The CPU cooler and power supply fan were the only noise sources present in the testing environment. As a point of comparison for the Wraith, I brought out Cooler Master's Hyper D 92. This $45 cooler is a TR Recommended winner that we suggest as a step up from stock coolers in our System Guide, so it seems like the perfect foil for the Wraith. Since the Hyper D 92 doesn't have thermal paste pre-applied, I used a generic thermal compound that's representative of what one might get with the average aftermarket heat sink.

                       For reasons we'll discuss in our noise testing section, I had to set up a custom fan curve for the Wraith in Gigabyte's Windows utility for the GA-990 F X-Gaming. To do so, I played with a series of load speeds to balance thermal performance against noise and temperatures. Eventually, I settled on a curve that let the Wraith idle at its 700-ish RPM minimum speed and ramp up to about 1400 RPM under load. Any faster, and the fan began to sound coarse to my ear. Both coolers were tested with a single Corsair 120-mm fan directed at our motherboard's V R M heat sinks, because, well, this happened without it under load: The system was perfectly stable without active cooling on the power-delivery components of the motherboard, but I didn't want to risk toasting anything. That fan was controlled by one of the 990 FX-Gaming's on board fan headers.

                    Now what is your reason not to choose amd cooler for your PC, more over you are gamer or designer or others. 

HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 All-in-One Printer

HP Office Jet Pro 6978 All-in-One Printer


                Hello guys, you know that HP Office Jet Pro 6978 is All-in-One Printer, for any usage such copy printing, document scanning and so on, lets read bellow about complete reviews explanations about it then you had beter choosing it for your job office, 

 Design and Features

                     The Office jet 6978 is a little larger than the Editors' Choice Brother MFC-J985 DW (6.8 by 16.5 by 13.4 inches and 18.3 pounds), and smaller and lighter than the Canon Maxify MB 2720 (12.6 by 18.3 by 18.1 inches and 26 pounds), also an Editors' Choice. The Office Jet 6978's paper capacity consists of one 225-sheet cassette, compared with the MB 2720's 500 sheets split between two 250-sheet drawers, and the MFC-J985 DW comes with just one 100-sheet paper tray. All three of these AIOs have ADFs for feeding documents to the scanner. With its 35-sheet capacity, the OfficeJet 6978's ADF is larger than the MFC-J985DW's 20 sheets and smaller than the MB 2720's 50 sheets. But, as mentioned, the Office Jet model is the only one that supports unassisted two-sided scanning, a feature that can be handy in many small-office settings. The Office Jet 6978's maximum monthly duty cycle is 20,000 pages, with a suggested monthly volume of 200 to 800 pages, compared to the MB2720's 20,000 pages maximum and 1,250 pages recommended, and the MFC-J985DW's maximum duty cycle of 2,500 pages and up to 1,000 pages recommended.

                The Office Jet 6978's connectivity options consist of Wi-Fi, Ethernet, connecting to a single PC via USB, and Wireless Direct, HP's equivalent to Wi-Fi Direct for making peer-to-peer connections with mobile devices sans a network or router. Other mobile connectivity options include: Air Print, Mop ria, and HP's own e Print. The scanner can save to BMP, JPEG, PNG, RTF, TIF, TXT, and image and searchable PDF. Scanning to and printing from USB thumb drives is supported via a port located on the left-front side of the chassis. Among the standard security features for a midrange AIO like this, you also get HP's Jet Advantage Private Print (a feature known as "Secure Print" on some laser printers), which allows you to secure sensitive print jobs with a PIN. You configure many of these options, as well as execute walkup tasks, such as making copies or printing from a USB drive, from a control panel that consists primarily of a 2.7-inch color touch screen surrounded by a handful of buttons: Home, Back, Cancel, and Help.

Setup and Software

                     Installing the Office Jet 6978 is straightforward. It's light enough so that getting it out of the box is easy, but it's large enough that it will fit comfortably on only bigger-than-average desktops. At the beginning of the software installation, you're asked whether to accept the software included on the optical disc or to download the latest version from HP's support site. I chose the latter. During the process, the installation program checked the printer for the latest firmware version (there was none available), and offered to download and install I.R.I.S. OCR, a pared down version of Readiris, an industry-standard optical character recognition (OCR) program. At the end of the setup process, the Office Jet 6978 printed a calibration page that I in turn scanned to align the print heads and complete the installation.
                Aside from the printer drivers and help files, the only other bundled software is I.R.I.S. OCR mentioned in the previous paragraph. It allows you to convert scanned document pages to searchable/editable text. Available also are downloadable apps for both Android and iOS that allow you to print from and scan to your mobile devices.

Performance

                   HP rates the Office Jet 6978 at 20 monochrome pages per minute (ppm) when printing in Normal mode and 30 ppm in Draft mode. I tested it over Ethernet in Normal mode from our standard Core i5 test bed PC running Windows 10 Professional. When printing our simply formatted 12-page monochrome Microsoft Word document, I clocked it at 16.9 ppm, with a first page out time of 13 seconds. The Canon MB 2720 printed the same document at 20.6 ppm and the first page out in 6 seconds. The Brother MFC-J985 DW was tested with an earlier methodology and hardware, making a direct comparison impossible.

                   When I combined the results from printing the above monochrome text document with the times from printing our complex color Acrobat, Excel, and PowerPoint test documents containing photos and graphics, the Office Jet 6978's print speed plummeted to 6.4 ppm, compared with the MB 2720's rate of 8.2 ppm. Both machines' print speeds dropped by 50 percent on this part of our test, which, given the complexity of some of our charts, graphs, and PowerPoint handouts, isn't unusual at all. The Office Jet 6978 printed our test 4-by-6-inch snapshots at an average of 16 seconds, much faster than the MB 2720's 41 seconds.

Output Quality

                 The Office Jet 6978's print and copy quality was a cut above average for a business-oriented inkjet AIO. Text came out well-shaped and highly legible, even at smaller point sizes (when printing common fonts), making text output suitable for most business applications. Our Excel charts containing gradients and PowerPoint handouts with dark fills and backgrounds looked good, too. Gradients flowed smoothly from one color to the next, and backgrounds didn't contain the banding we often see in inkjet printer output, though the Office Jet 6978 did have a little trouble printing hairlines, or rules, thinner than 1 point or so, on one of our charts. The line came out broken and incomplete in spots.
                   The photographs I printed on good-quality paper looked good, too. Colors were bright and accurate, and detail was about what I've come to expect from HP inkjets—better than average and more than good enough for all but the most exacting business applications. When I took the time to go into the printer driver and set print quality to Best, photos printed on premium photo stock rivaled those output from home- and family-oriented inkjets–better than what you get from the corner drugstore or Costco.

Conclusion

                     The HP Office Jet Pro 6978 All-in-One Printer prints well and at a competitive clip, and if you print and copy many color pages, HP's Instant Ink subscription service will help keep ongoing operational costs down. If, on the other hand, the bulk of your printing is monochrome, the Canon Maxify MB2720 might be a better choice, as might the Brother MFC-J985 DW (or perhaps a higher volume INK vestment AIO, such as the Brother MFC-J5830 DW), but the Brother model doesn't print photos as well as the Office Jet and the Maxify do. The Office Jet 6978 also comes with an auto-duplexing ADF, which is, if you scan a lot of two-sided originals, a huge time-saver. Automatic two-sided scanning, excellent print quality, competitive print speeds, and potentially low color printing costs are enough to make the Office Jet Pro 6978 our latest Editors' Choice for low-to-moderate print volume in a small office or work group.

BETWEEN LENOVO P2 AND K6 NOTE

BETWEEN LENOVO P2 AND K6 NOTE

Lenovo P2 




Lenovo P  2 review: Display

                Up front, we’re treated to a Full H D, 5.5 in AMOLED display, covering 99.9% of the sRGB color gamut and, as with all AMOLED displays, its contrast ratio is effectively perfect. Some of the darker tones – deeper reds and dark blues – were over saturated under the scrutiny of Expert Reviews' color calibrator, but you won’t spot this day to day. One sticking point is the P2’s peak brightness, which sits at a lowly 326 cd/m2. While that’s fine for gloomier winter days, you’ll be squinting at your phone once the sun finally pokes through the clouds. The Honor 6 X is much better suited to such conditions, with a peak of 502 cd/m2.

Lenovo P2 review: Performance

                  For the price, the P 2 is a surprisingly nippy performer. Powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core 2 GHz Snapdragon 625 chip and 4 GB of RAM, overall responsiveness was good. With a Geek bench 4 multi-core score of 3,130, the P 2 bettered the Moto G 4 by almost 700, and wasn’t far behind the Honor 6 X's 3,319. Switching to games, the phone scored a 10 fps average in the onscreen G F X Bench Manhattan benchmark, beating both the Honor 6 X ( 8.4 fps ) and Moto G4 ( 7.7fps ). Sky Force: Reloaded, a game that grinds to a halt on lower-powered devices, ran without a single frame drop, even during those action-packed enemy encounters.
Lenovo P 2 review: Camera

                    That’s near-full marks then, but then we come to the camera. It’s not that the P 2’s 13-megapixel rear camera is bad; it’s just that it loses out compared with the Moto G 4. Outdoor test shots under gloomy skies picked up plenty of color, with noise kept at bay reasonably effectively. Flicking on H D R gave mixed results, with over saturation on the orange bricks in our test shot, but it did help to balance out exposure levels. Where it falls down is indoors, especially in low light. Under close inspection, our test subjects looked grainy and, while colors were vibrant enough, noise was apparent. Try to use the P 2’s camera outside with plenty of natural light, if you can.

                The P 2’s camera software is also a tad clumsier to use than its rivals. Navigating through tedious menus isn’t ideal for on the fly photography, and the P 2 would have benefited from Huawei’s one-hand-friendly left and right swipes. At least Lenovo’s Pro mode allows you to delve into settings such as ISO and white balance. The final and relatively minor con is that there’s no Android 7 Nougat here; the phone is currently stuck on Android 6 Marshmallow, which feels a little dated in comparison. We’re told an over-the-air update is coming in the very near future, though.

Lenovo K6 Note 



Build and Design

                        Lenovo K 6 Note is a good looking device with a metal back and glass front along with plastic top and bottom on the back. The smartphone is well-built and sturdy without any squeaking parts. It feels good to hold in hand even though it does tend to be a bit slippery. The screen size may make it difficult for one hand usage, but that is the case only when you are trying to reach something on the diagonally extreme corners with your thumb.  Lenovo K 6 Note comes with the volume rocker on the top right side corner of the smartphone and the power button a little below volume rocker, towards the middle. You will find the speaker grill and the micro USB v2.0 port on the bottom and the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top side of the smartphone towards the right. The left size towards the top of the smartphone houses the Dual Nano SIM slot where the second slot can be used as an expandable micro SD card slot. The design for K6 Note is nothing out of the ordinary. The imprinted icons of buttons towards the bottom of the screen are ugly in my opinion and kill the chance for the company to add a layer of customisability where consumers can alter the buttons according to their preference.

Features

                Lenovo K 6 Note features a 5.5-inch Full H D display and is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. There are memory options available on the smartphone: 3GB and 4GB RAM with an internal storage of 32GB. The device we tested had 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Both the versions offer the ability to expand the storage using a microSD card of up to 128GB. The device is about 169 gm in weight with 151 x 76 x 8.4 mm dimensions. The smartphone sports a 16MP camera sensor at the back with PDAF and a dual tone LED flash along with an 8MP shooter on the front. Connectivity options include dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/A-GPS and a microUSB v2.0 port. Other notable features include Dolby Atmos audio technology, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity, compass and a fingerprint scanner. The phone is expected to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow (with a custom skin) and a 4,000 mAh battery. Lenovo K6 Note: An underpowered smartphone that tries to compete with much better rivals

Display


               A 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel with Full HD resolution does not offer anything great except the ease to read and use K6 Note under sunlight. The display is average and will not impress you much as the colour reproduction is not impressive. Even though the smartphone does provide a vibrant mode, despite extended usage in the vibrant mode the colours seemed washed out. Once I switched to Normal mode, the display turned from normal to just bad. Viewing angles are quite good though.
One thing to note is that the display settings do provide an option of ‘Brightness protection’ which is Lenovo’s take on ‘Night mode’. The contrast ratios of the display are not up to the mark with a hint of very faint blue tint over the entire display, which may bother people who want accurate colour production. Another thing that I noticed was the fact I had to regularly wipe the display to remove fingerprints despite using the phone with clean hands on most occasions.

Software

                  Lenovo K 6 Note runs a skinned version of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Vibe Pure skin. The skin is not as comprehensive as Xiaomi MIUI or Samsung Touch Wiz, and you can still see hints of stock Android while using the software. The company has added some useful tweaks like ‘Feature’ that include Quick snap, double pressing any volume keys to take a picture when the screen is off. Knock to wake, Smart Scene, Wide touch, Fingerprint snap, V R Mode Switch, Dual app profile a feature that lets you run apps under two different accounts. You can have Whats App running with two separate registrations, for example. The skinned U I does include a ‘Theme Center’ where you can apply different themes to change the look for the software. Other features include Quick flashlight, decrease tone volume, Ultimate Power Saver and Secure zone management, a sandboxing mechanism which is almost equal to creating different profiles on the smartphone. The device did come preinstalled with some bloat and does not provide you with a neat experience, and one interesting thing is that the pre-installed McAfee Security terms ‘Theme Center’ by Lenovo as a threat. All of the things added are spread over a different type of age groups and target groups and may not appeal everyone. But one thing to note is that the company needs to improve the software optimisation to improve the overall sluggish experience.

Performance

                    Which is surprising for its price-point and a smartphone with Octa-Core Qualcom Snapdragon 430 and 3 GB RAM as its internals. The device scored 636 in the Geek Bench 4 Single-Core test and 1972 in the Multi-Core Score test. The device also scored about 44378 in the An Tu Tu Benchmark which makes it figure quite low in the ranking when compared to devices launched in 2011 (iPhone 4 s) for example. Waiting for tasks to complete after the action has been executed, like waiting for the app to load while switching using multitasking mode, waiting for the keyboard to popup are normal. Even though the delay is small, over time it adds up and leads to a sluggish experience overall. One interesting thing to note is that the device did not get heated up during the extended period of testing except for the rare times when it was continuously pushed to its limits. The smartphone did run the games like Asphalt 8, but there was a noticeable lag while playing. The calling experience and voice quality is great on the device with no issues in the clarity of the sound or the reception. The speaker grill is available on the bottom side of the smartphone which does not hinder the sound while playing music. Even though the level of sound of the speakers is good, still it can drown in a considerably large hall with background noise. The smartphone scored 3383 in the PCMark Work 2.0 performance test and 9512 in the Ice Storm Unlimited test. One thing to note is that the fingerprint sensors on the back of the device are fast and very accurate with no problems at scanning the fingerprints from any orientation possible.

Camera 

            Budget smartphones do not really build up much anticipation in the camera department, and the K6 Note was no different. I was a bit impressed with the quality of images, contrast and colours of the photos in ideal conditions with sufficient daylight but the good part ends there. The images were a mess in low light with a grain-fest that painted the entire photos. Software does not seem to be optimised to adjust ISO and shutter speed as most photos had motion blur along with excessive noise in low light conditions. The HDR mode on the smartphone is terrible as the final images seem to have a ‘surreal’ filter applied to them to make the colours look vibrant and very unnatural. One important to thing to note is that most of the times I found images out of focus and had to clean the rear camera module glass to ensure that the pictures were in focus. The camera module on the front is also very ordinary, and you won’t be astonished by the photos just like the sub-par photos taken by the rear camera. Considering the quality of the images I had to double check if the rear camera is indeed 16MP. Don’t expect much except decent photos during the day.

Battery Life

                    Lenovo K 6 Note is equipped with a 4,000 mAh non-removable lithium-polymer battery which is good to know considering that almost all companies are packing larger batteries in budget devices. Despite the capacity, the battery life provided by Lenovo K 6 Note is impressive. The device ended up giving me a battery life of about 7.5 hours during a typical work day. The normal day included 2.5-3 hours of music, 4-5 photos, constant internet usage over 4 G and about 1 hour of gaming with a lot of Whats App and Telegram messages. The smartphone scored about 10 hours and 21 minutes on the battery intensive PC Mark Work battery life 1.0.One thing to note is that the smartphone software warns you of the mobile apps that are using a considerably high amount of battery. The software feature ‘Background app management’ prompts you to continue using that app or stop the app. K6 Note also has inbuilt ‘Ultimate Power Save’ which disables everything except calling and messaging, thereby increasing the standby time to days. The software also has redesigned ‘Power Consumption Details’ which let you see what apps are using the battery in a more comprehensive way.
                  Another important thing is that K 6 Note comes with a micro USB 2.0 port and does not come with the latest Type-C reversible USB port. K6 Note does not come with fast-charging. Instead, the company has (thankfully) opted to include a power adapter that provides 5.2 V charging capacity at 2A. This somewhat helps the situation instead of the painful experience of charging with a power adapter providing charging at 1 A.
