Samsung Galaxy Note 7 & Review !!

This is came out a couple of weeks ago but these are the things you need to know about the phone .
So, the new points for Galaxy Note 7 are the design refresh , some camera refresh ,hardware improvements , a bunch of new software features and Explosions .

Design: New design is something of a mix between the galaxy s7 edge and note 5 so, plenty of glass on the front and the back symmetrical from front to back and curved enough on both edges that it has what's called a dual edged display .  The only problem with dual edge display is that while holding my hand is still touching the display so it seems like it is unresponsive.

Hardware :  It is pretty much using the Highest-end part available Snapdragon 820 , 4 GB ram and an incredible quad HD super AMOLED display the vividness , the sharpness , color depth everything just looks great .

Camera:  It is brought up from the galaxy s7 and s7 edge it's actually the exact same camera from those phones so 12 mp sensor and f 1.7 aperture with  optical image stabilization. The photos and $K videos taken from this phone comes out to be amazing .

Software :  Apps are more organized now so it is easier to find there is a search function in the setting app.
one of the new and the flashiest feature is IRIS scanner  . It is the new method of unlocking the phone that take advantage of the new sensor on the top of the phone with an infrared light blaster that you can actually see in action when  it's scanning.It can't be fooled with photos of you or other people eyes.

S-pen : The new s-pen has a smaller tip so it feels more like writing with real pen rather that marker .It has also got new feature is the ability to screen capture instantly and convert it into GIF super easy to use and fun.

Battery : It has a smaller battery than S7 and S7 edge even though it is a bigger phone smaller battery and large screen on the front so the battery life on note 7 is average . It has fast charging , wireless charging and a headphone jack  and expandable storage .

The whole is ipv6 certified that mead water and dust resistance.

Explosion:  The main issue was battery overheating while charging especially when caharging in hot environment or using third- party charger .They have called for the replacement .
The Note 7 which has little green battery icon on the lock screen are form new batch and they will not explode most probably.

HTC Desire 10 "Beauty with low price"

HTC's Desire 10 is a budget phone in a fancy suit.HTC’s mid-range Desire line has been the company’s bread winner for the past couple of year, while HTC has struggled to compete with Samsung and Apple on the high-end. But while the Desire line has been hugely important to HTC’s bottom line, it has always had a playful, less serious look than the company’s other phones.
That’s changing today, as the Desire 10 sheds the youthful appearance for a more grown-up take. The Desire 10 is actually two phones — there’s a "pro" version and a "lifestyle" model — but while the specs and features differ between the two, they share a common design language.

And the best way to describe that design language is "adult." The Desire 10 comes in four colors: black, navy, white, and a pale blue that HTC calls "Valentine Lux" for whatever reason. Both versions are made of plastic, but feature metal trim that makes them feel more upscale than their prices suggest. Of the four colors, the black and the navy are particularly handsome.
Aside from design similarities, the Desire 10 pair share the same display size and software. But beyond that, they are rather different.
The Desire 10 pro has a 1080p display; MediaTek Helio P10 processor; 3 or 4GB of RAM; 32 or 64GB of storage; a 20-megapixel rear camera; a 13-megapixel front camera; and a fingerprint scanner. The lifestyle version ditches the fingerprint scanner; has a 720p display; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor; 2 or 3GB of RAM; 16 or 32GB of storage; a 13-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; and Hi-Res audio certification.

iPhone 7 : 10 New Things !


The new iPhone is very similar to its predecessor same shape , same size , how it looks how it feels is pretty same as iPhone 6 and 6 plus . But with improvements like antenna bands don't go across the back anymore gives neat and clean finishing  . The two new colors are black and jet Black . Black is the matte finishing and jet Black is glossy black like a Piano which is also a finger print and scratch magnet .


iPhone 7 is very similar to touch track pad in new iPads it doesn't click anymore it is a solid glass button with pressure sensitivity which doesn't move .


iPhone 7 is now officially water and dust resistant it is rated to survive under 1 m of water for 30 min. So, now you can now take a shower with it .


The iPhone 7 has a new 12 mp camera with f 1.8 aperture  , Optical Image Stabilization and couple of new things new image processing chip , quad Led flash and Raw capture which is really awesome and beautiful camera bump.There is also a new 7 mp front facing camera which looks better from the previous one .

The real camera upgrade is in the bigger phone (iPhone 7 plus) which has these two 12mp camera with different lenses in front of each on right is had 28 mm lens and on left 56mm (2X) lens this is better for portrait and objects which are far away .


iPhone display is mostly same as the iPhone 6 same resolution and same IPS technology but it is 25% more brighter with more color gamete so the colors will pop up more but probably not like a OLED.

I would say that it is not a proper stereo but technically it is .The bottom of the phone has one speaker grill it is downward facing and the earpiece is the other side of the pair and it is front facing it is weird but technically it makes stereo speaker.


Every iPhone7 and iPhone 7 plus will ship with this lightning earpods because there is no headphone jack in the iPhone 7 but iphone will also ship little adapter with every phone.


The apple has introduces the option of wireless earphones , which they call  Airpods. they come is charging case which charges then and when the case is opened it automatically connects to the iphone the airpods  also got proximity sensors so when you put it in you ears it will start playing song . There is one more feature double tap on earpiece will activate siri ,So, you can talk with its both eand microphone.


It is the minor one . Apple has released a smaller update to use apple pay in JAPAN.

#10: SPECS

iPhone 7 has the new A10 fusion chip inside which has few benefits that better performance with CPU and better GPU performance for better gaming and it is Quad-core chip with two of it core being lower powered So, in theory it is more efficient chip which will give you more battery life.It starts with 32 GB version and goes up to 256 GB version.

Google is developing a new OS - "Fuchsia"

Is it the time to say goodbye to Linux ?

Google is developing a new operation system named Fuchsia. It is unclear what the system is designed for , but the most notable point is Fuchsia is meant to ditch Linux Kernel (which Android is based on) .

The name of the project has emerged after code reading 'Pink + Purple ==Fuchsia (a new operation system)'. There were rumblings of a merger between Chrome OS and Android last year , so it could be the replacement for further down the line. However it is also possible that they are planning a new system for augmented reality.

Will Fuchsia replace Android ?

From some sample of code it is indicated that Fuchsia is going to be used for embedded system (things that are specialized and do not need operating system ).May be google is developing  this new operating system to replace its Chrome OS or they are planning to use this in OS in project ARA ,

Over a billion Android Devices are at Risk

Over a billion devices powered by Snapdragon SoC are at risk . TrendLabs has discovered serious snapdragon security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker by simply running a malicious app. Due to flaws at kernel level code, hackers could exploit the vulnerabilities to gain root access on Qualcom devices by installing malicious application . The could also get remote access of the device .

Affected Devices

Due to heavily customization of kernel by manufactures it is very difficult to exactly identifies the vulnerable devices. Google has suggested the devices running Android earlier than 4.4.4  Kitkat to 6.0.1 Marshmallow .

What can be done ?

Security patch is already released by Google in February Security update .However , as we all know how long it takes the companies to roll out the update, this puts most of the devices still at risk .
Popular devices likes LG G5 , Samsung Flagship like S6,S6 edge , Oneplus 3 and many more.

Before you get your software patched kindly avoid installing unwanted apps and games . Strictly do not install any app or games form any third party websites .
