The All-New Features of Android ICS 4.0.4

Android users get anxious and excited whenever a newer firmware calls itself to attention,  and ICS 4.0.4 version is no exception, either. Before you wait it out and finally install this version, here are some of the features you can make the most of. If you have already installed, make sure you know what you are holding in your hands.

Happy app-ing!

Screen rotation:If you have enabled screen rotation on your phone, the new version makes it seem like a dream by being almost fluidic. There is no lag, as in the previous version. However, you have to be at a certain angle for it to move from portrait to landscape. This is to avoid accidental rotations. Smart.

Multitasking: Just like the screen rotation, multi-tasking is super smooth. You can move from one app to another swiftly without much lag.

Android animation: This is just a hidden animation feature in this version. Just go to Settings/About Phone/Android Version and double or triple tap it. You get the Android robot with a brown belly. Place your finger on his chest until the robot becomes large enough to fill up the screen. And presto, you get several green robots moving from left to right against a blue background. Not of much use, and it would have been cooler if it could have been made a screensaver or something.

Dock gets a folder: Yes, with this version you can also make a folder and place it in the dock that occupies the bottom space of your screen.

Sound options: You get more ringtones like Cuisine, Down hill, Emotive Sensation, Faint, Illuminator and so on. You can set different sounds for notifications and ringtones, too.

Signature phone unlock: Yes, face recognition is passé. Now, you can unlock your phone with your signature – and it’s much easier and safer than any of the other methods that were already available (pattern, swipe, pin, password).

Realtime voice typing: Now your Google keyboard gets even better. The voice typing is much better and faster. It types as you talk, unlike before when it took some time to process before it typed on its own.

Notification access: Now, you can go straight to notifications from the lock screen. Just swipe down from top to bring up the notification window. Now that’s a real shortcut!

Handwriting to Text: Yes, Samsung’s darling feature, the S-Memo, gets a new feature. You can handwrite and get that translated to text by the phone.

Pop-up video player: Just open your video player, play something and hit the rectangular top button on extreme right. And presto, your video becomes quarter the size, so you can multi-task even while keeping the video on one-fourth the screen.

Danger Close 2019 Sinhala Subtitles

South Vietnam, late afternoon on August 18, 1966 - for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Main Force Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But not before 18 Australians and more than 245 Vietnamese are killed.

Google Pixel 4 Review: Hands-on

Google Pixel 4 review: Hands-on The Google Pixel 4 adds a second rear camera lens and hands-free motion controls, but otherwise this feels like a small step forward - but at least it's cheaper than last year's model.
Should I Buy The Google Pixel 4?
The Pixel 4 doesn’t feel like a transformative upgrade, but iterative camera improvements could still be enough to help the Pixel reclaim its crown as camera king after some fierce competition this year.
Elsewhere, the Pixel 4 isn’t a specs powerhouse to rival the best in the market, but tight integration of Google Assistant into the OS could make this one of the most user-friendly phones around - so long as you can turn the gesture controls off.
