What’s new this year? Although the Pixel 7 Pro features an eye-catching Tensor G2 chip and a sleek design that leans heavily on a blade runner– sci-fi style, it’s still the camera that gets the biggest glow. There are ways to take close-up macro photos at the iPhone 14 Pro, much improved zooms over long distances, and a really smart ability to crop into shorter zooms for optimal framing of your subjects. Admittedly, none of these additions are game-changing on their own, but add them all together and you’ll end up with a seriously impressive piece of kit. Essentially, they make it much easier to take a decent photo.

For example, we witnessed the clash between Chelsea and Arsenal before the World Cup the other week and were tasked with taking pictures from the touchline. Besides simply having an extremely short deadline to get the job done (and a club photographer behind our backs barking well-meaning if slightly passive-aggressive instructions), you had Mason mount, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the others rushing in all directions. You can be the judge of what we put out but, given the challenge, we were very impressed with the results.

Ready for Christmas, good for the long haul

Now as much as Rahim Sterling and your grandmother probably don’t have much in common, the fact is that many of the Pixel 7 Pro’s photographic traits will do just as well in the frenetic family Christmas lunch arena as they do at Stamford Bridge. Color accuracy, sharp focus and the ability to handle multiple subjects without breaking a sweat? It’s all going to excel both on special occasions and when dealing with standard WhatsApp pricing for years to come, especially since the Pixel 7 Pro is guaranteed for three years of software updates and five years of updates. security update by its manufacturer – useful things at a time when you might not want to change your phone every few years.

Vivo Y76s (t1 version) with MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC, dual 50MP cameras launched: price, specs https://meai-modelisme.com/vivo-y76s-t1-version-with-mediatek-dimensity-700-soc-dual-50mp-cameras-launched-price-specs/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 06:30:08 +0000 https://meai-modelisme.com/vivo-y76s-t1-version-with-mediatek-dimensity-700-soc-dual-50mp-cameras-launched-price-specs/ Vivo has launched a new Y series smartphone.

Vivo has launched a new Y series smartphone. The company has launched Vivo Y76 (t1 version) in China. The device was launched as a new variant of the Y76s, which was spear at the end of last year in China. The t1 version has the same design as the Y76 but contains different hardware. The phone has a curved back and frame. It also packs a different processor under the hood.

The Y76s (t1 version) was launched in China in three color options. The phone was also launched with a unique storage configuration. Let’s take a look at the price, specs and other details of the Vivo Y76s (t1 version).

Vivo Y76s price and specifications (t1 version)

The Vivo Y76s (t1 version) was launched in China with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. Its price is 1899 CNY (about Rs 21,800). The device was launched in Star Diamond White, Galaxy White and Starry Night Black colors.

In terms of specifications, the phone has a 6.58 inch IPS LCD screen. The screen has a Full HD+ resolution of 2408 x 1080 pixels. The display supports a standard 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. There’s a small teardrop notch at the top for the front camera.

Since the phone uses an LCD screen, the Y76s (t1 version) has a side-mounted fingerprint reader. It also supports AI face unlock. The plastic back houses a rectangular camera module. It sports a dual camera setup with a 50MP primary camera sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. For selfies, the phone has an 8 MP front camera sensor.

Under the hood, the phone packs a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. In comparison, last year’s Y76s came with a Dimensity 810 SoC. So the t1 version is definitely a downgrade in terms of performance. The phone, however, gets more RAM under the hood. The t1 version packs 12GB of RAM, up from 8GB in last year’s model. It also offers 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. Users can further expand storage using a microSD card.

The device packs a 4100mAh battery and supports 44W fast charging out of the box. It weighs around 175 grams and measures 163.84 x 75.00 x 7.79 mm. Finally, the phone runs Android 12 out of the box. It has a layer of Funtouch OS 12 on top.

Vivo has not confirmed any details about the launch of the t1 version in India. The device, if it makes it to India, might not be the best deal as there are phones from other brands that offer better value for money. What do you think of the y76s (t1 version)? Let us know in the comments below.

Hanif Fikri, 23 minutes agono phone could beat $250 poco f3 so farMaybe it’s the price in China. In Europe, this phone never cost that money. It was 350EUR when it was first released (the 6Gb/128Gb variant). Even now, in some stores that still have this model, I don’t see it below 300EUR. Because it was a very well-received model and people bought it, the price didn’t drop too much.
Still, the phone has its flaws. It has below average cameras and the display (while very nice on paper) has issues with contrast and green tint. I tried the phone maybe 2-3 months ago and sent it back after 1 week (with the issues I mentioned above). It’s a good gaming phone, but that’s about it. The Redmi Note 10 Pro for example is a better phone in my opinion. And this one costs 250EUR these days (if you can find it). Lower chipset, but just about everything else is better than the Poco F3.

UltraHD, 32 minutes agoThey make the back beautiful but screw things on the front, it looks awful with a teardrop notch… morePeople should have lower expectations of phones under $200.
Personally, I will never buy the cheapest Chinese phones on the market (those under 200EUR). In many cases they have a lot of issues and they usually get 1 major OS update and 2 years of security.
For people on an absolutely tight budget, a word of advice, buy the cheapest Samsung phones (something like Galaxies A1x or A2x). Even though they don’t look the best on paper, in actual use they are better than any cheap Realme or Xiaomi or whatever.
The sweet spot for Chinese phones is in the price range of 300-500 EUR. Here you will find much better models, usually you get 2 major OS updates and the phones, in general, can be compared to Samsung phones at 600-700EUR.

As impressive as smartphone cameras are these days, even the best camera phones face some major limitations. One is lens selection, as there is a limit to how many different lenses you can reasonably equip a phone with, and the other is the quality of those lenses, which is limited due to their size. necessarily small. But Xiaomi has just shown a phone that solves both of these problems.

The company took to Weibo (opens in a new tab) – a Chinese social network – to unveil a modified version of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra (which already includes a one-inch sensor) on which you can mount a Leica M-series lens. The post included a video which was uploaded to YouTube by XDA Developers (opens in a new tab)so you can watch it below.

Samsung’s new update makes the Galaxy S22 work more like the iPhone 14; Android, Apple users are arguing about it https://meai-modelisme.com/samsungs-new-update-makes-the-galaxy-s22-work-more-like-the-iphone-14-android-apple-users-are-arguing-about-it/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 18:00:21 +0000 https://meai-modelisme.com/samsungs-new-update-makes-the-galaxy-s22-work-more-like-the-iphone-14-android-apple-users-are-arguing-about-it/ As established many times (with previous stories), I don’t think it’s inherently bad or bad when a phone maker takes inspiration from another company in making their software or hardware.

As established many times (with previous stories), I don’t think it’s inherently bad or bad when a phone maker takes inspiration from another company in making their software or hardware. In fact, quite the opposite – I’m all for it, as long as these changes are helpful to users and add to their experience rather than take away from it.

For example, we’ve seen a bunch of “imitated” stories in the industry that didn’t turn out to be particularly successful flights:

But there are what I call “good influences” or “good flights”, and that’s what we seem to have with Samsung’s brand new One UI 5 software on top of Android 13, which users Galaxy S22 and future Galaxy S23 owners get it right now or very soon!

Amazingly, we actually don’t have to dig too deep to find the positive iPhone 14 and iOS 16 influences that Samsung took when creating One UI 5 for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S23. – it’s all there on the lock screen!

The most notable influence of iOS 16 in One UI 5 lock screen is the ability to choose and customize wallpaper and clock styles. It’s not that the option to choose a new wallpaper and customize widgets from your lock screen is so new – what reminds me of iOS 16 are Samsung’s design choices. The Wallpaper and Clock style selection menus now closely resemble those of iOS 16 and iPhone 14 in function and design – fonts and colors.Samsung being Samsung, however, you’ll also get more customization options than available on Google’s own version of Android 13 or iOS 16, which is a brilliant touch. For example, you can choose whether lock screen notifications will show in a detailed preview or as icons only; you can also adjust the transparency level of these notification popups, automatically invert the text color, and more.

You can also resize lock screen widgets such as the clock, which you can’t do on the Pixel 7 Where iPhone 14 series. Samsung even lets you choose which bottom left and right icons you have on your lock screen (although this feature has been around for a while).

The new wallpaper style customization on Galaxy has an iPhone touch

Moving on, another aspect of One UI 5 heavily inspired by iOS and iPhone is the Customizing the wallpaper style in your Galaxy’s wallpaper settings.

For starters, you can see how Samsung has categorized wallpapers on One UI 5 by “Featured”, “Gallery” and “Graphic”. The whole layout also looks a lot like iOS, showing you wallpaper previews, thumbnails, and scrolling carousels.

Interestingly, it’s Apple’s wallpaper picker that looks more feature-rich here, giving you the ability to mix and match photos, create new wallpapers from emojis, to use the Weather app as your wallpaper or even use dynamic astronomy wallpapers with options to see the Earth, Earth in detail, Moon and Moon in detail, as well as the system solar.

One UI 5 on Galaxy S22 now lets you stack widgets like you can on iPhone; Smart Suggestions are like Siri Suggestions on iPhone

Unlike One UI 4, which gave you limited widget stacking options, just like iOS 15 and iOS 16, One UI 5 now gives you more freedom when it comes to apps you can use to create Stacked widgets (you can now create stacks using different apps). In case you didn’t know, Samsung’s “stacks” are widgets that you can browse instead of having to clump your home pages with multiple widgets that take up a lot more space. Think of widget stacks as the Swiss army knife of widgets!

One UI 5 of the Galaxy S22 also brings a Smart Suggestions widget that contains multiple apps – the ones you use most frequently, so you can access them at a glance. If that sounds familiar, that’s because iOS 16 already offers virtually the same thing, which Apple calls Siri Suggestions / App Suggestions (any idea why we need two names for this, Apple?).

Anyway, I’m digging deeper into Apple’s take on widgets, as it seems to be a bit more refined, at least on the surface. For what it’s worth, Cupertino’s app suggestions also let you choose shortcut suggestions based on your usage habits in certain apps. You can set up shortcuts to open a certain page in Safari, search Google Maps, view your location’s weather, or send a Tweet.

New Selection tool and options for selecting text from image on Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S23 take inspiration from iPhone and iOS

Samsung’s current and future flagship phones running One UI 5 will now allow you to directly select text directly from images and copy it. And Samsung’s photo editor now allows you to create topic cutouts/stickers by circling/selecting them.

If this sounds familiar, it’s because Apple introduced the equivalent of these features in 2021 with iOS 15. They’re called Live translation and “Raise a subject from the background of the photo” – not sure of his name…

Live translation (which, as the name suggests, can also translate text from photos in real time) also came as a feature of Android 12, or at least Google’s (Pixel) version anyway, so Samsung is a bit late to the party.

Anyway, Apple’s take on these two features is much more advanced. When it comes to “Lift subject from photo background”, all you have to do is hold the subject, which is then automatically detected – you can then manually lift it to the application you want or copy and paste it. And from this year, you can select text to copy and translate not only from photos but also videos on iPhone, which is super impressive.

Samsung’s revamped Galaxy routines resemble the focus modes on the iPhone 14

Replacing what used to be Bixby routines, new modes and Routines The One UI 5 feature can now be used to trigger action sequences on your Galaxy, which can help the phone adapt to different parts of your day.

You can use different Routines to create a specific sequence of Actions/Settings, Notification Filters, and App Limits that can be toggled at any time or set to activate automatically based on what you are doing, what you are doing. time or your current location.

Again, if this rings a bell, it’s because that’s more or less how Focus Modes work in iOS 16 and iPhone 14, letting you block notifications, limit app usage, etc., all at once instead of having to fiddle with these settings one by one.

Samsung, Android and iPhone users react to new iOS-inspired software features of One UI 5

It’s important to note that, as stated by Twitter user Entro, Samsung Galaxy flagships have indeed already shipped with some version of all of these features.

What’s interesting is that Samsung streamlined, doubled down on and now openly highlights these features only after Apple showed some interest and focus on these aspects of the software – now’s the time weird. Other than that, the visual and functional resemblance (how the One UI 5 features look and work) to iOS is uncanny, and that’s why I venture to consider it an “inspiration”.

It’s also quite ironic how, for example, iPhones never really had widgets until 2021, but after Apple implemented them, Android phone makers decided to take inspiration from the widget concept of Cupertino.

Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S23 will share some software features with iPhone 14 but Samsung remains the king of Android customizations

Ultimately, I don’t mind “who’s copying who”, which means I’m very happy that some of the best features of iOS 16 are now also on the Galaxy S22 and will soon be on the next Galaxy S23! For what it’s worth, Samsung’s One UI 5 also brought other features that other (Android) phones have had for some time! One of them is the ability to add a watermark to your photos.

Of course, as of this point, Samsung doesn’t partner with any major camera brands, and so the watermarks just say “Galaxy S22”, which means they don’t look as fancy as these Xiaomi-Leica labels that we can find on the centered camera Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

The most important thing for current and future Galaxy users is that One UI remains one of the most (if not the most) feature-rich versions of Android! For example, Samsung (still) absolutely smokes Google and Apple when it comes to pro-grade Camera app options and controls (now with the new Astrophotography option, among a ton of other updates). As another example of Samsung’s focus on abundance, Galaxy literally lets you create GIFs from your own videos!

And don’t get me started on Android 12L and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 which are on a whole new level of “cool and functional”.

Samsung’s most premium conventional phone, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, is as high-end as it gets. This is reflected in its price, but savvy buyers can get one without paying full price just yet.

Woot, owned by Amazon, is selling the refurbished Galaxy S22 Ultra at a very low price. The 256GB model, which is available new for $1,300, retails for just $732.99 and we suspect it will sell out quickly, given that the 128GB model is already sold out.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the first S-series phone with an S Pen slot. It sports a beautiful 6.8-inch screen with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. The phone is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and is blazing fast in everyday use. A heavy 5000mAh cell with 45W fast charging ensures great battery life.

If you opt for Woot’s offer, you’ll save $567 in exchange for a fully functional Galaxy S22 Ultra with a moderate level of wear and Woot’s warranty. The only thing you will lose is the bragging rights of owning a new phone. That’s about as good as the non-binding deals and $732.99 is frankly a great price for a phone with pen support, premium chip, fast charging, amazing cameras and five years of software support.

Agreement expires in seven days or until exhausted.

What pixels have Photo Unblur for Google Photos?

Only the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro currently have access to Photo Unblur, as it’s exclusive to the Tensor G2 chip. The Pixel 6, 6a, and 6 Pro can all use Face Unblur thanks to the original Google Tensor, but can’t access Photo Unblur yet. We hope this will come to other Android phones or the Photos web app in the future.

What is Photo Unblur?

A gif showing the before and after of Photo Unblur on the Pixel 7

(Image credit: Google)

The Pixel 7 the series has the new G2 tensor chip with a next-generation Tensor processing unit that Google claims is 60% faster for machine learning tasks. Because of this, it’s capable of performing AI-backed tasks in Google Photos that even the Pixel 6 can’t handle, like Photo Unblur.

At the Made by Google event, Google engineer Shenaz Zack described Photo Unblur as a tool to “automatically blend images from the ultra-wide and main cameras to help ensure faces are clear.” That’s actually what Unblurred face tool did last year, so this aspect is technically not new.

Karma for killing the iPhone Mini. Not everyone wanted a bulky phone. I’m an iPhone user BTW

J

In our country, 14 plus costs about 120 USD more than standard 14. Upgrading to 14 pro and pro max is an additional less than or equal to $100 per level. 13 pro max is the same price as 14 plus.
Weird. Explain why…

Gray Wolf, 36 minutes agoNobody wants to pay 700 EUR for a 5.4″ phone. It’s good for nothing. Not good for movies… moreDo you really think people want a compact phone for gaming and gaming? Like for real?

I want a compact phone to fit in my pocket and be a communication device in terms of its primary use. Also for me being like 4 inches enough to control the phone with one hand is simple. Also a long time ago I had a 3.2 inch screen for Galaxy Gio and I didn’t miss a thing. The next phone for me was the 4-inch screen Lumia 520 as I wanted to go back to the Nokia brand. And then a 5-inch screen for Lumia 830, because I wanted a bigger screen and because I also wanted the phone to be smaller, because by then phones were already starting to get really big.

The problem would be more that people don’t want to spend more than 700 euros for a compact phone because it doesn’t make sense for your use of the phone. If I don’t play games and spend a lot of time behind a screen, what would be the point of having the best hardware on the market in the phone? The average range of about 300,000 to 400,000 points in Antutu can last 5 years

The same case scenario with the Plus. No one wants to pay 1200EUR for a phone (which has 60Hz, not all Pro Max cameras and worse materials). Basically, it’s just an iPhone at the Pro Max price, but with vanilla iPhone features.

This is why the Mini and Plus series failed.

Lol, when Apple sticks to the same thing, everyone complains about not “innovating”, but when they try something different, you all complain again about wanting to do everything. They tried a larger phone that isn’t Pro Max. If it doesn’t work, it won’t work. Companies are constantly trying new things, not just Apple. Some stick, some don’t. Remember popup and flip cameras? No one uses it even though we still don’t have good under-display selfie cameras. How come? Apple completely ignored this, many jumped on the bandwagon and did it and now they’ve all gone back to the classic design. See?

g

Lol. It was sort of planned. Apple thought it could get away with anything. Maybe in the past they could, but in these difficult times, not so much.
After the poor sales of the Mini series, it seems that the Plus is on the same road.
Perhaps this will teach Apple not to try to sell anything at any price. But, their nerf is pretty high, so I doubt they’ll stop there. And they will probably continue to sell overpriced products.

?

Back to making a mini phone? No.

Ditch the PRO moniker.

Make 3 sizes. 5.4 / 6.1 / 6.7

Don’t limit storage/CPU/display. Keep the huge camera module maxed out, the small focus on more battery.

The SE refreshes 3 years, and remains as the standard version.

notafanboy, 2 hours ago“The 14 Plus is the most useless iPhone this year along with the 14 too.” I think the… morethe iPhone 14 has no value other than Apple can claim a lower starting price for the 14 series. There is so little difference to the 13 that the discounted 13 is clearly the better choice.

?

Because nothing has changed aesthetically since the iPhone X apart from soc.

M

Just in case Apple uses the same screen as the iPhone Pro series, I believe the iPhone Plus will be successful in sales.

If the standard iPhone 14s were priced $100 lower ($14 at $699 and 14 Plus at $799), like the price of the 13 mini and 13 respectively, I think they probably could have been a bit more successful. But because they are priced so close to the Pros which not only have a new chip but also the new island, people just buy the Pro and the Pro Max instead.

Given that the 15 series is likely to introduce the island and chip to standard phones, it’s likely that demand for the 15 and 15 Plus next year is likely to be a bit higher than the 14 – but if they keep the prices the same again then demand will be impacted again and people will go for the 15 Pro because again this will have the new A17 chip and probably other new features.

(The 15 Ultra will likely cost $1200, so fewer people will flock to this compared to the 14 Pro Max unless they make some massive changes to make it “Ultra”.)

R

It’s almost like when you offer last year’s chipset and 60hz display and meh cameras for 900 bucks or more people won’t be interested and spend more on a pro model, vanilla 14 or one of the 13, or a completely different phone all together/don’t even buy one.

At least it’s clear that 14 Plus is doing its job to make the Pro models look like a more attractive option.

?

Does this mean that 14 Plus sells less than 13 Mini in the same period last year?

I think Apple should redo a Mini, go from 5.4″ to 5.6″ to ensure a better screen (put at least 90Hz in all c’mon Apple models) while keeping a smaller size, better battery, etc

Google’s Pixel phones typically feature bright, flashy colors, but not this year. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are available in three shades each.


Google recently announced Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will each come in three colors that are noticeably toned down from last year’s options. Both new smartphones are packed with features and cut market prices for other notable flagships. The base Pixel 7 starts at $599, which is significantly cheaper than competing offerings from Apple and Samsung. The Pixel 7 Pro – Google’s top-end smartphone in 2022 – starts at just $899.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Along with affordable prices, the new Pixels offer deep integration with Google products and services. The Pixel series was late in the game and as such struggled to catch on among Android users. However, it can be argued that the Pixels are among the best Android phones because of their software integration. Since Google designs both Pixels and Android software, it can provide similar levels of optimization to Apple and iOS. Google is building its own ecosystem of products and services, and the Pixel is at the center of that effort.

The Pixel 7 Pro comes in three color choices – Hazel, Snow and Obsidian. The Hazel color is a light gray with a hint of green and a gold polished aluminum finish. The gold border runs around the exterior of the device and covers the camera bar on the back of the Pixel 7. The Snow color is a traditional white with a silver polished aluminum finish. Finally, the Obsidian color is a familiar gloss black and dark gray aluminum trim. Since the smartphone has a glass back, fingerprints are definitely an issue. The Obsidian color will show the most fingerprints of the three colors, with the lighter Hazel and Snow colors hiding smudges better.


Pixel 7 is available in three colors

On the other hand, the Pixel 7 offers three color options: citronella, snow and obsidian. The Snow and Obsidian colors are the same as the Pixel 7 Pro, but the trims on those models are different. The aluminum trim on the Pixel 7 isn’t polished, so it will look and feel slightly different than the Pixel 7 Pro. The Lemongrass colorway is by far the brightest and flashiest Pixel 7 color. It’s a pale yellow that has a hint of green from certain angles and is reminiscent of the pastel colors of older Pixel smartphones.

Pixels are generally designed to be fun devices, with bright colors to match. Last year, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro featured a two-tone design with pastel color undertones. However, after facing criticism over the design of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Google opted for much more subdued color choices this year. All the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro models feature glass backs and a camera bar covered in polished aluminum, with more subdued color choices this time around.
