Realme X or Realme 3 Pro: Which Realme phone should you spend your money on

first_imgRealme has released some stellar smartphones over the past one year of its existence. Last year, the company sort of peaked with the Realme 2 Pro. In 2019, the Realme 2 Pro was succeeded by the Realme 3 Pro, which was even more disruptive as it brought features like a Snapdragon 710 chipset and VOOC fast charging under Rs 15,000. Earlier this week, Realme launched the Realme X, which is easily the company’s best smartphone yet.The Realme X has a starting price of Rs 16,999, which puts it at spitting distance from the Realme 3 Pro. To recall, the Realme 3 Pro was launched in India starting at Rs 13,999. Both the phones are very different in terms of the specs they offer, but one thing remains the same – the chipset. The Realme X and Realme 3 Pro are powered by the same Snapdragon 710 SoC. So, should you go for the Realme X or the more affordable Realme 3 Pro? Here’s what the two phones offer for their price to help you decide which one you should go for.Realme X vs Realme 3 Pro: Price in India and availability detailsThe Realme 3 Pro is currently available in India at Rs 13,999 for the 4GB + 64GB storage variant and Rs 16,999 for the 6GB + 128GB options. There is also a 6GB + 64GB variant available for Rs 15,999. The Realme 3i comes in three colour options – Lightning Purple, Nitro Blue and Carbon Black – and can be purchased on open sale on Flipkart and Realme.com. On the other hand, the Realme X is a higher-priced smartphone that starts at Rs 16,999 for the base variant that comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and goes up to Rs 19,999 for the 8GB + 128GB version. The Realme X is available in Polar White and Space Blue colours and will go on sale for the first time on July 24 at 12pm on Flipkart and Realme’s online store.advertisementRealme X vs Realme 3 Pro: Design and displayWhen we reviewed the Realme X, we called it a refined version of the Realme 3 Pro. This is because while both the phones look premium and attractive, the Realme X looks a little more polished by offering a minimalistic design and trendy 2019 features like a notchless display and in-display fingerprint sensor. Both the phones come with 3D curved glasstic panels with a glossy finish and in attractive gradient colours. The Realme X also gets a Type-C port while the Realme 3 Pro offers a microUSB port.Both the phones offer great displays, but the Realme X gets an edge here again as it offers a large 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with no notch or punch-hole cutout. You get an immersive viewing experience without any distractions along with a more attractive display that offers bright, vivid colours and deeper blacks compared to the Realme 3 Pro’s LCD panel. The Realme 3 Pro sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ Dewdrop display.Realme X vs Realme 3 Pro: Hardware and batteryThe Realme 3 Pro and Realme X are powered by the same Snapdragon 710 octa-core chipset, which means you will get a similar outcome as far as performance is concerned. Both the phones run smoothly when it comes to performing day-to-day tasks like messaging or social media browsing. They are some of the best phones in their segments for gaming as well thanks to a fast and lag-free Adreno 616 GPU. The Realme X comes in 4GB and 8GB RAM variant, while the Realme 3 Pro comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM options. Both the devices also ship with Color OS 6 based on Android Pie. ColorOS 6 brings and app drawer and gradient colour theme for the UI along with a mess of preloaded third-party apps.While performance may be similar, the Realme X is a clear winner in the camera department as it gets a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary camera on the back alongside a 5-megapixel depth sensor and 16-megapixel selfie snapper houses in a pop-up camera. The Realme X offers some of the best camera in its segment as it is capable of shooting detailed, high resolution photos using the main camera.The Realme 3 Pro also impressed us with its 16-megapixel /1.7 Sony IMX519 primary sensor which is the same sensor used on the OnePlus 6T. This is paired with a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor. Meanwhile, the front camera offers a 25-megapixel selfie sensor. So, while the Realme X may offer high-quality photos using the main 48MP sensor, the Realme 3 Pro offers sharper selfies with its 25MP camera. Both phones also support Nightscape, Chroma Boost, Portrait and HDR modes as well as EIS. The Realme X also comes with 960fps @720p super slow-mo video recording, which was also added to the Realme 3 Pro via a software update.advertisementAs for the battery, the Realme 3 Pro houses a 4,045mAh capacity while the Realme X offers a smaller 3,765mAh battery pack. In our time with the devices, we found the Relame 3 Pro to offer a terrific battery life, offering over a full day of juice on a single charge. The Realme X is almost as good as it delivers a full-day battery life as well. Both the phones also support VOOC 3.0 fast charging that will charge the devices up in zero to 100 per cent in about 80 minutes.Should you buy the Realme X or Realme 3 Pro?The Realme 3 Pro is one of the best phones you can buy under Rs 15,000. If you have a strict budget of Rs 15,000, then you should go for the Realme 3 Pro as it offers a complete package that includes an attractive display, good ergonomics, a fast and smooth Snapdragon 710 processor and a stellar battery life topped with VOOC fast charging.But if you can stretch your budget a little further, the Realme X will offer you a true flagship experience. It is for those who want the best of 2019 trends in a smartphone. You get a fantastic notchless Super AMOLED display, pop-up selfie camera, 48MP dual camera setup and an in-display fingerprint that makes the Realme X a true 2019 smartphone. There is no other phone that offers this combination of features under Rs 20,000 right now.ALSO READ | Airtel offers massive price cuts on its HD and Internet TV set-top boxes, also offers extra benefits worth Rs 1,000ALSO READ | Jio is now second-largest telecom operator in India, leads overall broadband sector by 55 per cent market shareALSO READ | Oppo K3 launched in India with Snapdragon 710 SoC, AMOLED display: Price, specs and sale datelast_img read more

Walmart brings third-party selling to Canadian website as competition grows by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 28, 2017 2:56 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 28, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Walmart Canada is looking to strengthen its online presence by adding third-party sellers to its website.The company says it’s starting with 27 sellers, who will be offering products ranging from diapers to sporting goods in an effort to quadruple the products available on the site by year end.The move follows a similar effort by Best Buy Canada in 2015 to be a go-between for online sales when it launched its Marketplace platform, with the promise of boosting choice and of making shipping easier by allowing people to pick up products in its stores.The efforts by retailers to improve their online offerings comes as they face increasing competition from the likes of online giant Amazon.com, which officially closed its US$13.7 billion takeover of Whole Foods Market on Monday.Amazon has already started cutting prices at the grocery chain, while it also plans to allow customers to pick up online orders at some of the physical stores.The online juggernaut’s expansion comes as traditional department stores in Canada struggle, including Target’s short-lived expansion into the country and Sears Canada’s significant cutbacks while restructuring. read more

UN chief calls for enlightened selfinterest from world leaders to save the

“Over the past week, I have witnessed first-hand the impacts of climate change in the Pacific Island States”, the UN chief said in a statement concluding his visit to the region. “They contribute very little to the global climate emergency and yet, they are the ones that are being most affected”.  He did not mince words in saying that for some of them, “climate change is now an existential threat”.Pointing out that entire villages are being relocated, livelihoods destroyed and people becoming sick from climate-related diseases, Mr. Guterres lamented: “The risks are all too real”. He drew attention to his time in Tuvalu, where he saw “an entire country fighting to preserve its very existence”.  And yet, the UN chief found “remarkable” that the countries facing these enormous challenges, have decided that “they are not giving up” but are instead “determined to find solutions”.  UN Secretary-General António Guterres meets beneficiaries of the “Markets for Change” project supported by UN Women in Vanuatu on 18 May 2019., by Mark GartenNot only have they developed ways to increase their resilience and adaptation, but according to Mr. Guterres, “they are leading the way in reducing emissions and are an example that the rest of the world should follow”.  In Vanuatu, his final stop in the Pacific, the Secretary-General tweeted that the vulnerable island State was one of “the most disaster-prone countries, made worse by the global climate emergency”. However, he added that he “saw first-hand how the Pacific island nation is facing threats with determined climate action”. Reiterating the powerful message that he has continued to underscore throughout his visit to the South Pacific, the UN chief stressed that “climate change cannot be stopped by the small island countries alone, it has to be stopped by the rest of the world” and that this requires the political will for “transformational policies in energy, mobility, industry and agriculture”. Mr. Guterres echoed the “three urgent messages” to world leaders that he had “consistently conveyed” throughout his visit to the Pacific, beginning with shifting taxes from salaries to carbon. “We need to tax pollution, not people,” he reiterated. Second, he flagged that countries must stop subsidizing fossil fuels.  “Taxpayer money should not be used to boost hurricanes, spread drought and heatwaves, melt glaciers and bleach corals”, he asserted. And third, he argued against building new coal plants by 2020, saying “we need a green economy not a grey economy”. Mr. Guterres said that solidarity or generosity is not being sought, “it is enlightened self-interest from all decision-makers around the world” that is needed “because it’s not only of the Pacific that is at stake, it’s the whole planet”.  “To save the Pacific is to save the whole planet”, concluded the Secretary-General. read more

India beat West Indies by 224 runs in 4th ODI

India players celebrate after the wicket of West Indies batsman Shai Hope during the fourth one day international (ODI) cricket match between India and West Indies at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on October 29, 2018. (Photo: AFP)MUMBAI, India (AFP) — Opening batsman Rohit Sharma slammed a dominant 162 to set up India’s crushing 224-run victory over West Indies in the fourth one-day international on Monday.Sharma’s 211-run third wicket stand with Ambati Rayudu, who made 100, powered India to 377-5 after electing to bat first at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.The hosts then bowled out the West Indies for 153 in 36.2 overs to lead the five-match series 2-1. Paceman Khaleel Ahmed and left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav took three wickets each.Skipper Jason Holder hit an unbeaten 54 for West Indies after they were reduced to 101-8 and staring at the prospect of suffering their biggest ever ODI loss. They lost to South Africa by 257 runs in 2015.It was India’s third-biggest victory margin after their 257-run triumph over Bermuda in 2007 followed by the 256-run mauling of Hong Kong the next year.The day belonged to Sharma who took apart the West Indies bowling, hitting 20 fours and 4 sixes during his 137-ball stay at the crease.Sharma — the only ODI batsman to hit three double centuries — took control after the hosts lost their in-form captain Virat Kohli for 16.Sharma put on 71 runs with opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, who was the first to go off pace bowler Keemo Paul for 38.Kohli, who came into the game at the back of three successive centuries, was caught behind off paceman Kemar Roach. He has accumulated 420 runs in his four innings of the series so far.Sharma, who made an unbeaten 152 in India’s opening win, got to his 21st century in just 98 deliveries and went on to register his seventh 150 plus score in 192 ODIs.Off-spinner Ashley Nurse finally got Sharma’s wicket as the batsman sliced the ball to short third-man and Chandrapaul Hemraj took an excellent catch.Rayudu kept up the pace at one end to get to his third ODI century but was run out soon after reaching the three-figure mark.In reply, West Indies lost three of their top batsmen for just 20 runs including two run outs that spelt disaster for the tourists’ chase.The 20-year-old Ahmed then rattled the opposition middle-order with his left-arm pace bowling as he returned figures of 3-13 from his five overs in just his 5th ODI.Yadav then spun into action to wipe off the West Indies tail with three lower-order strikes.The fifth and final ODI is on Thursday in Thiruvananthapuram.

Shruti Haasan responds to bodyshaming It really hurts I knew I had

first_imgShruti HaasanInstagramTime and again, Shruti Haasan, daughter of Kamal Haasan, has been at the receiving end of criticism, be it for her acting chops or physical appearance. The 33-year-old said that she has managed to overcome the criticial phase in her life but at that point, she was deeply hurt by the negative comments against her.”Honestly, I have not been mocked down recently, but there are a lot of people who say ‘oh she is getting married’, ‘she has become fat’, all of this. At that point, it really hurts, because I knew I had health issues. I knew that I have never ever taken enough time in 10 years to take care of myself, and every human being deserves that. I needed some love and silence and self-introspection to really be me,” Shruti Haasan was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.Shruti was recently in the news for her break-up with her London-based boyfriend Michael Corsale who had announced their split on social media. The actress has also been away from Bollywood for a while now. She was last seen in Behen Hogi Teri opposite Rajkummar Rao.When Shruti was asked about the reason behind her absence from the industry, she said that she is currently focused on doing films down South and would slowly tap into Bollywood.”The reality is that right now, I have taken a break for a year. Maybe I will slowly tap into Bollywood, because right now I am doing other things. Currently, I am focused on the films that I am doing in Tamil and Telugu, and music. If something interesting comes up in Bollywood, then I will definitely do it,” Shruti said.She had recently confirmed that she has signed Laabam and she will start shooting for the film, which will be directed by SP Jananathan.last_img read more

Amazon Wins Patent for Smarter NoiseCancelling Headphones

first_img Enroll Now for Free Noise-cancelling headphones can be great, especially if you don’t want to deal with the noise of an airplane, a busy New York street, or a loud coffee shop. However, the main problem with noise-cancelling headphones is that they aren’t very smart. They block out all noise regardless of what it actually is. And that can be an issue if there are some things you need to hear among the cacophony: a siren approaching in the distance, someone tapping you on the shoulder to tell you about something important or your order.Flicking the noise-cancelling feature of your headphones on and off is way to handle this problem, but it’s a bit cumbersome and it doesn’t really help you for unexpected sounds you might want to hear. There’s a better solution — or, at least, there could be. According to a report from CNET, Amazon was recently granted a patent for noise-cancelling headphones that can intelligently separate noise you don’t want to hear from sounds you do want to hear. It does so by automatically disabling the noise-cancelling aspect whenever it detects certain frequencies, sound patterns or even special keywords.”Aspects of the disclosure provide suspension of noise cancellation at a noise-cancelling device using keyword spotting. In one aspect, a predetermined word or phrase can be spotted within an utterance received at the noise-cancelling device, and in response, noise cancellation can be suspended or otherwise terminated. The predetermined word or phrase can be specific to an end-user that utilizes the noise-cancelling device and/or a person that interacts with the end-user,” reads Amazon’s patent.”In another aspect, interaction between an operator and the noise-cancelling device can be monitored after noise cancellation is suspended, and based at least on such interaction, a model for keyword spotting can be refined. In certain aspects, noise cancellation at the noise-cancelling device can be suspended or otherwise terminated in response to receiving a suspension directive via an electronic non-audio signal, for example, from a peripheral device. In other aspects, the noise-cancelling device can resume noise cancellation in response to a control signal.”Since this is just a patent, there’s no guarantee that Amazon is actually making noise-cancelling headphones with this special technology built in. We don’t know any other features the headphones have, or even how you might train the headphones to recognize certain keywords. We’d be interested to know if the headphones came with a pre-populated list of words they’re triggered by, whether you could pick and choose these trigger words from a list, or whether you’d have to train the headphones to respond to phrases like “excuse me,” “order” or “now serving.” This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

Grassroots website compiles businesses in Arenal

After all, there is no public bus that goes directly from Liberia to Arenal, and she would be arriving late. But when she ran an Internet search fortaxistas in the region, she struggled to find a single listing, or even a phone number.“I thought, ‘This is ridiculous,’” Ferris remembers. “There are at least four cab drivers in town, and none of them are online. And that’s where the idea came from.”Ferris and her husband Ron made a plan: They would create a website that listed local businesses in the Arenal area, which would help visitors to the region find them. The result is Lake Arenal Businesses, a simple site that aggregates numbers and addresses for local companies. The directory includes a wide variety of organizations and services, from hotels and pharmacies to construction and veterinarians.The Ferrises’ project addresses a common problem in Costa Rica, especially outside the Central Valley: Small businesses are often hard for foreigners to find online, even businesses geared toward tourists and travelers. While an enormous number of companies have a presence on Facebook, such listings are often hard to find on a regular search engine like Google or Bing. Phone numbers are often outdated, and in a country that generally lacks street addresses, precise physical directions can be a headache.Pamela Ferris works as a freelance copywriter and Ron works in the aerospace industry. After nine years in San Diego, California, the couple experienced some professional hiccups and wanted to try somewhere new. They sold their house and moved to Ecuador for three months. After they ultimately decided it wasn’t the ideal setting for the expat life they wanted, they moved to Costa Rica, making their home in the Lake Arenal region and meeting a variety of local people. “We really tried to immerse ourselves,” says Ferris. “We wanted to help. We thought, ‘How can we help them get online, so that the rest of us can find them?’”The task proved to be more challenging than they expected. In many cases, owners simply logged into the site, submitted their listing, and waited for manual approval from either Pamela or Ron. But in order to make the site comprehensive, the Ferrises decided to reach out to the community as well. They visited businesses on foot, carrying a GPS-equipped tablet with them in order to trace exact coordinates. Together they have indexed 54 businesses so far, covering a large swath of land from Nuevo Arenal on the north side of the lake to the western town of Tilarán. The Ferrises pose for a photo at Rio Celeste. Courtesy Pamela Moffet FerrisTheir project is young, and success has been modest. Pamela says the site has attracted between 200 and 350 page views per month, with virtual visitors from Costa Rica, the United States, and even Chile and Russia.The irony of their venture is that the Ferrises needed to rebuild their finances and recently moved back to San Diego to earn money. They continue to monitor the site from afar, as they hope to return to Arenal in fall of 2015.“We’re too young to retire, so we call it pre-tiring,” quips Pamela with a laugh. “We seriously thought, if [the site] takes off, we could add a page for different parts [of Costa Rica]. I think it would be an amazing service for the local communities.”“I absolutely love Costa Rica,” she added. “We’ll definitely be back.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Your browser does not support the audio element. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   The San Francisco 49ers may have plenty of suitors for quarterback Alex Smith this offseason, with the Arizona Cardinals possibly joining the mix.Smith, who has become expendable to the 49ers after the emergence of second-year signal caller Colin Kaepernick, could be an ideal fit for a Cardinals team that still lacks an impact quarterback.Former Cardinals QB and NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Monday he thinks Smith can be had at a reasonable price. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “First of all, I think San Francisco as a gesture to him is going to let him go. So I don’t think it’s going to cost that much,” Warner said. “I think a three or a four [draft pick] would be my guess on what you had to give up to get him. So I don’t think the cost is too high for a guy that can win at this level and shows what he brings to the table.”Smith has suffered his fair share of ups and downs, posting a 19-31 record over his first five seasons in the league. But he appeared to turn a corner last year, en route to a 19-5-1 record. In 2012, Smith seemed in position to lead the 49ers for the foreseeable future, before a concussion derailed one of the best seasons of his career.San Francisco then went on to post a 7-2 record with the dynamic Kaepernick at the helm before losing in the Super Bowl. Smith’s future is now up in the air, but he stands to be a popular target in trade talks this offseason. While the Cardinals seem like a logical fit for the 28-year-old quarterback, Warner said it’s important for Smith to find a system that plays to his strengths.“I think that’s going to be the key for Alex Smith and whoever brings him in is make sure what you’re going to do and how your team is built fits Alex Smith and if you’re Alex Smith try to do the same thing,” Warner said.

In recent months, Russian artists have experienced a spike in pressure from the authorities, with a string of concert cancellations and arrests that have brought an outcry from critics who see it as the latest expression of censorship against Russian musicians. (AP Photo/Pavel Golovkin) Russian parliament runs rap song contest amid crackdown MOSCOW — The Russian parliament on Thursday announced a rap song competition amid a crackdown on contemporary music that evoked Soviet-era censorship of the arts.A dozen rappers have had their shows cancelled recently after warnings from officials who claim that their music promotes the wrong values. At least three musicians have been detained.In a symbolic gesture of reconciliation, the State Duma announced it would run a competition for the best rap song — but it has to be on the subject of travel in Russia. The winner, according to lawmaker Mikhail Degtyarev, will win a trip around Russian cities.“We want to give a platform for open discussion and highlight the opportunities as well as drawbacks of this or that town,” he said. “If, for example, there is a bad road near a tourist attraction, there should be a video about it.”Rap has emerged as one of the most popular music genres among Russia’s youth — and a target for Russia authorities — thanks to its frank portrayal of daily realities and scathing criticism of the government.Last month, a rapper known as Husky, whose videos have garnered more than 6 million views on YouTube, was arrested for staging an impromptu performance after his show was shut down in the southern city of Krasnodar. A court sentenced Husky to 12 days in jail on charges of hooliganism, but he was released four days later — hours before a solidarity concert in Moscow by popular hip hop artists protesting his detention.The electronic duo IC3PEAK had six out of their 11 gigs cancelled in recent weeks, and on Dec. 1 they were briefly detained in a Siberian city.Eager not to alienate young people, top Russian officials in recent days took steps to distance themselves from the arrests and show cancellations. The State Duma last week hosted a round table with some of Russia’s most popular pop acts, and the presidential ombudsman for human rights said on Wednesday that President Vladimir Putin had asked her to investigate why the gigs are being shut down.Nataliya Vasilyeva, The Associated Press by Nataliya Vasilyeva, The Associated Press Posted Dec 13, 2018 6:51 am PDTlast_img read more
