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.

Jays a-Six Wireless Review

Jays a-Six Wireless Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • US$79
More and more phones are dropping the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. Sure, you can buy an adaptor to connect your old ones to Lightning or USB-C, but a convenient alternative is Bluetooth. 


JAYS A-SIX WIRELESS: PRICE & AVAILABILITY
You can buy the a-Six Wireless from Amazon for £69.99. We couldn’t find them for sale locally in the US, but you can order directly from Jays' website and get them delivered anywhere in the world. If you're in the US, they cost $79.

For around £30/US$30 more, you can get the RHA MA650 Wireless.

JAYS A-SIX WIRELESS: DESIGN AND BUILD
When headphones are called wireless, you tend to imagine that there will be no wires at all, but unless you buy Apple AirPods, you’re going to find a wire between the left and right ears.

The a-Six has a ‘neckband’ design which means the battery and remote are on a wire that runs between the earbuds.

The buds themselves are machined from aluminium and look good with the two-tone black and copper finish. But you might prefer the white-on-silver version or grey-on-silver.
The remote has three buttons and a built-in mic. It can take a little while to learn all the functions, but you can control most things, from volume and skipping tracks to your phone’s digital assistant and answering and hanging up calls.

If there’s one complaint, it’s the absence of any clips to hold the wire to your collar. Without this the battery hangs down and pulls slightly on the earbuds – something that’s exacerbated if you go running with them.

RHA’s design for the MA650 is better: a thicker neck strap stays put and offers some slack for the thinner ear bud wires. In turn, this means they don’t suffer so badly from microphonics – the noises transmitted by the wires rubbing on your clothing or body. By contrast, these noises are much more noticeable with the a-Six.

The advantage of the a-Six’s design is that it’s easier to fold up the headphones and pack them away in a smaller space, though it’s a shame no carry pouch is included. They’re also extremely light.

JAYS A-SIX WIRELESS: SOUND QUALITY
It’s crucial to get that perfect fit for two reasons. First, it’s the only way you’ll hear bass as it relies on an air-tight seal. Reviews you read saying they have no bass are simply down to poor fit. Part of the problem could be that the selection of silicone tips provided are on the small side: one of our testers simply couldn’t find a pair large enough.

Second, you’ll only get the promised noise isolation with proper-fitting tips – again it’s the same reason as for bass.

This reviewer found the factory-installed tips a perfect fit which led to excellent bass. In fact, the a-Six sounded just as good as the MA650 overall, with good mid-range clarity and no harsh treble.

No matter what genre of music you prefer, or if you like to watch videos or listen to podcasts, the a-Six sounds good.

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.
