Four Tet - Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 Music Album Reviews

Kieran Hebden’s new live album reminds us that he is a stellar performer, not just a producer.
The British producer Kieran Hebden has one of the most distinctive signatures in electronic music. First, a gravelly drum machine; then, some jewel-toned synth pads; and, finally, a strip of harp or chimes or wordless cooing, unspooling like wrinkled ribbon.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Release Date & Specification Rumours

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Release Date & Specification Rumours

We've been expecting that the successor to the Mi Mix 2 would be the Mi Mix 3, unlikely to arrive until October, but good news has come sooner than we thought: a new Mi Mix will arrive on 27 March. It's likely to be more or less the same as the Mi Mix 2, but running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor - you can check it out in the video at the top of this page, in which it appears to use iPhone X-style gestures.

This means that some of the rumours we're seeing are potentially linked to the Mi Mix 2S rather than the Mi Mix 3. An early sighting from Concept Leaks may be no more than one of many prototypes, but if it sees the light of day we could see a Mi Mix with a vertical dual-camera at the rear and a central fingerprint scanner (not an under-glass design, as is rumoured to feature on the upcoming Galaxy S9). This updated design also features more rounded corners than previously.



A wallpaper unearthed by XDA-Developers suggests the Mix 2S' screen will be FHD+ (2160 x 1080), an 18:9 panel like that of its predecessor. We expect it to stay at 5.99in. The site also suggests the battery is unchanged at 3400mAh.

There is very little else to go on at the moment, but as a flagship device we would expect the new Mi Mix to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. We have heard that, like the upcoming Xiaomi Mi7, it could come with as much as 8GB of memory.

We've yet to see Xiaomi use anything higher in resolution than full-HD, and neither has it manufactured any phones that are waterproof or support wireless charging - all areas in which the spec could be improved. Xiaomi has, incidentally, recently joined the Wireless Power Consortium.

As a flagship device we doubt the new Mi Mix will be running Android One like the recent Mi A1, so it will almost certainly come with MIUI 9 preinstalled. However, XDA-Developers suggest it will run Android Oreo out of the box, which means western users won't have to install Google services after purchase.

When is the Mi Mix 2S release date?

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will launch on 27 March 2018, company spokesperson and product management director Donovan Sung has announced on Twitter.

When is the Mi Mix 3 release date?

The original Mi Mix was announced in December 2016, with the Mi Mix 2 appearing almost a full year later in October 2017. We wouldn't expect to see a Mi Mix 3 until October 2018.
When it does arrive you won't be able to buy it direct from Xiaomi in the UK, though sites such as GearBest and Geekbuying will be able to ship one over.

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G: Head-to-Head On Vodafone’s 5G Network

Should you upgrade to 5G? We compare the 4G and 5G variants of Mi Mix 3 running on Vodafone’s network to see whether it’s worth taking the plunge.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3?
The Mi Mix 3 5G is faster and has a higher-capacity battery than the standard Mi Mix 3, yet weighs only 8g more. And while Vodafone’s 5G network is patchy right now, by the time you’re even halfway through your 24-month contract we should be in a completely different situation in terms of coverage. But are you prepared to pay double dollar for the priviledge of future-proofed connectivity and slightly better performance on an already fast phone?
