How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.



Brother HL-L8350CDW review: colour laser printer a good all-rounder for business

Brother has recently boosted its range of business colour laser printers targeted at SMEs. There are six printers in the L8000 series - four multifunction and two single function. Its aim is to meet the needs of those who prioritise speed, volume and cost effectiveness. The Brother HL-L8350CDW is the superior single-function colour laser printer in the collection and you can tell when you take it out of the box that it means business. It's a very solidly constructed rectangular unit that measures 410 x 486 x 313 mm and may need a couple of people to manoeuvre its 25.5 kg bulk into place.

There's nothing remotely flash about this printer as it's styled in unassuming shades of black and cream, designed to slot into your other office furniture without calling attention to itself. Even the control panel on the top surface has been made of the same cream plastic to be less visible. Buttons have been kept to a minimum, although cost cutting shouldn't always be mistaken for style minimalism.

Disappointingly, the Brother HL-L8350CDW's LCD does not tilt and although the two-line text is backlit, it's a slow process going through menus with small buttons - a touchscreen would have been a massive bonus.

In terms of capacity, the HL-L8350CDW has a 250-sheet paper tray in the base and a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray that drops down at the front. If your output requirements are significantly greater, an additional 500-sheet paper tray can be added for around £165. Auto Duplex printing comes as standard which can make significant savings on your stationery costs.

Brother has made some improvements over last year's HL-3150CDW by this time including a USB port on the front for USB flash drive printing. Connectivity includes the full package of ethernet, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Wi-Fi Direct for linking to mobiles and tablets through the Brother iPrint&Scan app.

The claimed top printing speed for the HL-L8350CDW is 30 ppm for both colour and mono documents although we were averaging around 25 ppm for single-page documents of both types and 12 ppm for double-sided duplex versions. These were still perfectly respectable print rates for busy SMEs and print quality was generally detailed with blacks solid, although colours throughout tended to be darker than the originals.

As you'd expect, ink cartridges come in low and high yield versions. The basic 2500-page black costs 2.39p per page, while the 4000-page high-yield cartridge reduces the amount to 1.76p per page.

Similarly, for colour each standard 1500-page colour cartridge arrives at 5.1p per ink per page with the high-yield 3500-page ink working out as 4.18p per ink page. But at over £100 per colour refill, a toner top-up will set you back close to £400, which will be more than you probably paid for the printer.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

Currently China-only, the new Nokia 6 will also become available in Europe in April, priced at 279€ (around £245).

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on MWC might usually be about smartphones and other high-end gadgets but a feature phone has caused quite a big of hype. HMD has re-launched the Nokia phone seen in The Matrix. Here we go hands-on with the Nokia 8110 4G. 
Let’s face it, sometimes old things are cooler than new one and although the Nokia 8110 4G is technically a new phone, it’s another example of the firm bringing back a classic.
Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
