The iPhone XR, on the other hand, looks pretty much like every Apple phone since the iPhone X (not including the iPhone 8 or the latest SE). It also has an edge-to-edge display, save for the characteristic notch, and while the presence of this notch is getting a little predictable, the phone still looks great. Its beauty is helped by its glass rear, which, in contrast to generic black plastic, does provide the XR with noticeably more sophistication. … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 4a vs. Apple iPhone XR
Turn based vs real time combat
Otherwise, the measurements and design of the Series 6 are identical to the Series 5. The headline feature was the addition of an always-on display that lets the Apple Watch show the time constantly, like a regular watch, without having to tap the display or raise your wrist. With the Apple Watch Series 6, an enhanced always-on Retina display is advertised as 2.5 times brighter than the Apple Watch Series 5 outdoors, making it easier to see in bright sunlight, an improvement our review has confirmed. When your wrist is down, you can now access Notification Center, Control Center, and complications, plus change faces without having to wake the screen. … [Read more...] about Apple Watch Series 6 vs. Apple Watch Series 5: Is it worth the upgrade?
In the real world, it is doubtful that there is even a 10% difference in the effectiveness of the two models when it comes to blocking out sounds. For testing purposes, our pandemic-based equivalent to airplane white noise or standard office activity was a vacuum, a noisy bathroom extractor fan, and a construction crew outside the house. Neither the SP800N or 1000XM3 could completely cancel these sounds when sitting right beside them, but even at three to four feet away, both sets of earbuds magically reduced those sounds pretty much identically. The WF-1000XM3 may have been slightly better, but it was really too close to call. … [Read more...] about Sony WF-SP800N vs. WF-1000XM3: Which Sony ANC earbuds should you buy?
Turning to the Galaxy Watch 3, Samsung’s official spec sheet makes some very interesting claims. It says that “typical” usage time for the watch is 43 hours, and that it can last for a whopping 120 hours under low usage. Our experience was fairly different, however, with the Galaxy Watch 3’s battery depleting faster than the Apple Watch Series 5’s over the course of a couple of days. We found in our review of the Apple Watch Series 6 that it also lasts two days, assuming that you switch it off overnight or don’t use GSP and fitness-tracking very frequently. … [Read more...] about Apple Watch Series 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
Manage your recoil Don’t start your aim at the head, though. Weapons in Valorant have a lot of recoil, and mastering that recoil is key to success. If you’re shooting an automatic weapon, you should aim so that your fifth or sixth bullet lands on the head. That will deliver a significant amount of damage to the body, while sending a final bullet in the head to finish the job. Each weapon’s recoil is a little different, so you’ll want to get familiar with your go-to loadout. … [Read more...] about Valorant beginner’s guide: Tips and tricks for Riot’s class-based shooter
