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.

Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 Review

Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $129.99
As the name might give away, the Instax Wide 300 takes photos that are wider than other instant cameras. The prints are double the size of Instax Mini photos and have a landscape orientation that makes them ideal for landscape shots or group photos, if less so for portraits.


The camera itself obviously has to be large enough to accommodate the bigger prints, and Fujifilm has committed to a chunky aesthetic all round, with a large grip and an absolutely enormous lens.

It’s probably fair to say that the Instax Wide isn’t the most attractive instant camera around. In fact it’s almost certainly the ugliest, which is a bit of a problem for a product category that’s driven almost entirely by aesthetics.
Still, it doesn’t affect how the camera actually functions, and the Wide 300 is pretty solid. Controls are simple: two levels of autofocus for the 95mm lens, basic flash settings, and the option to reduce or increase exposure slightly to brighten or darken photos.

Given the wide prints it’s no surprise that the Wide 300 excels at longer ranges, picking up more detail in landscape and building photos than any of its rivals, but struggling to focus on close-ups or selfies - though the additional included close-up lens does improve things somewhat.

Portraits can turn out great though, as long as you get used to framing for landscape, with warm skin tones - though you have to take care with the flash, which can overpower some shots. The new orientation is also great for parties - it takes a lot less work to cram multiple people into the same shot now.

Instax Wide prints cost around £1.30/$1.30 per print in packs of ten, but prices drop if you buy in bulk and it’s easy enough to buy them for less than £1/$1 per print even from Amazon. They’re only available in colour though - not black-and-white.

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.
