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.

Best Mini Tablet 2018

Best Mini Tablet 2018
New tablets are somewhat hard to come by these days but if you're in the market for a pint-sized slate then here are the best small tablets around you can buy.
Your buying guide for the best small tablets in 2017

The tablet market has slowed down significantly over the last few years, so much so that the likes of Sony and LG don't even make them anymore. We used to have plenty of favourites including the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and LG G Pad 8.3.

Google's hugely popular Nexus 7 seems like a lifetime ago and Tesco sadly ended the amazing Hudl range. Although many are a distant memory, there are a handful of small tablets still around that you can buy brand new.

You can still rely on firms like Apple, Amazon and Samsung for this kind of device.We'reking tablets with a screen size under 9in as a typical full-size tablet starts at 9.7in.

We've managed to round up the best small tablets you can buy in 2017 and some of them even launched this year. We'll endeavour to add more as review them.

They're typically cheaper than larger models and this also makes them more portable. Small tablets are great for travelling so you can take TV shows and books with you without adding much weight to your luggage.

With the tablets below there is something for everyone with a range of different sizes, prices and features. 

Best small tablet 2017

1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8
  • RRP: £319

This is a tablet well worth considering if you've been thinking about buying the iPad mini 4, as it can contend and sometimes outshine Apple's mini tablet when it comes to design and power. It's almost unbelievably thin and light and that screen is a joy to use.

2. iPad mini 4
  • RRP: $399

The iPad mini 4 is now only available in 128GB so starts at a higher price of £419. That makes it one of the most expensive small tablets around but it's still one of the best. It's got a great screen, excellent build quality, top battery life and Apple's wealth of apps. You won't be disappointed if you can afford it.

3. Huawei MediaPad M3
  • RRP: $299

In a stagnated market, the Huawei MediaPad M3 initially feels a little underwhelming. After extended use though, we reckon it’s a cut above the mid-range, but then again at this price you are paying for it. It’s a good alternative to an iPad if you want an Android tablet that’s bigger than an iPad mini but smaller than an iPad Air 2. But, who is specifically looking for that? The MediaPad is excellent and we recommend it, but it lacks a certain ‘wow’ factor that's largely down to the high number of existing Android tablets. The MediaPad 3 is a cut above, but you should also consider Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series for a similarly excellent Android tablet experience. 

4. Xiaomi Mi Pad 3

It's nice to see another new Android tablet and although the Mi Pad 3 isn't majorly different from the previous model and is more expensive, it's still a decent compact device if you don't mind importing it to the UK.

5. Amazon Fire HD 8
  • RRP: from $79.99

The Amazon Fire HD 8 2017 ticks a lot of the right boxes. It’s affordable, well built and plays back video to an exceptionally high standard.

You need an Amazon Prime membership to fully enjoy it, but this isn't necessary if you're buying the Kids Edition as that comes with a year's subscription to Fire for Kids Unlimited.

Overall, it’s an incredibly priced media consumption tablet that exemplifies Amazon’s dominance in the low-end market, and it's just as good for adults as kids.


6. Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus

The Tab3 8 Plus’s strong point is the quality it offers when it comes to entertainment features. The large- and high-resolution display, coupled with its performance in video playback and gaming, make it highly enjoyable and a strong contender to any budget tablets available. However, the Tab3 8 Plus’s poor results when it comes to internet use make it clear it should not be used as a professional tool.

We would highly recommend this device for entertainment purposes. Thanks to its greatly developed parental mode, it is suitable for the whole family. Its design is clear and smooth, it is easy for a child to hold and for a parent to carry, and it comes at a fairly affordable price.

7. Amazon Fire 7
  • RRP: US$49.99

The Fire 7 is a very minor update to the 2015 7in Fire tablet. It’s a shame that the processor and cameras haven’t been upgraded, but the low price makes it hard to complain.

It remains great value and a great way to use Amazon’s services including video and music – as well as Alexa. The absence of all things Google will be a deal-breaker for some, but it’s an excellent choice for kids or undemanding adults.

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.

Nokia 6 (2018) UK Release Date & Specifications
It's easy to forget that the Nokia 6 is a year old, given that it didn't make its way to the UK until August, but it was actually unveiled much earlier in January 2017. The company has in January 2018 announced an update to the original smartphone, with the 2018 model now official.
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.

A larger version of the China-only Nokia 7, the Nokia 7 Plus features an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 6in full-HD+ 18:9 display primed for entertainment.
