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.

Leica Sofort Review

Leica Sofort Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $299
German camera company Leica is rightly legendary for its lenses, so it was a surprise to some when it ventured into instant cameras - not best known for pristine image quality. Though going by the Sofort, we’re glad they did.


Based on Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 90, the Sofort doesn’t offer any revolutionary new features, but is instead a refinement, pairing Fujifilm’s tech with Leica’s own lens.

One of those immediate refinements is in the camera’s physical design. The Mini 90 was already Instax’s most attractive camera, but the Sofort is another step up, with a straight-edged design that delicately toes the line between modern and retro. Available in white, mint, or orange, it’s colourful, sleek, and minimalist - it’s hard not to fall a little bit in love at first sight.

The 60mm f/12.7 lens accommodates two different focal distances, and there are preset modes for macro, people, parties, and sports/action shots. If you want to get fiddlier, you can adjust brightness, flash, and a timer, along with bulb and double exposure modes for more challenging shots. Oh, and there’s a small selfie mirror on the front to help you nail your self-portraits too.
The Sofort takes standard Instax Mini film, but Leica also sells its own prints. Unsurprisingly they cost a bit more, but there’s no appreciable difference in quality - we can’t tell apart similar photos taken across the two film types, so feel free to stick to Instax.

As for the photos themselves, they come out fantastic - the best we’ve seen across the instant cameras we’ve tested so far, especially at shorter distances. The macro mode turns out great close-ups, while even standard settings produce strong portraits. Skin tones can be slightly washed out, and there’s a bit of detail lost in long distance shots, but colours are bright, vibrant, and have the warmth of the best of film photography.

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.

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.
