Facebook Messenger Gets Faster Lighter And More Secure In 2019

The Facebook Messenger has undergone a lot of changes since the past few months. For instance, the Messenger 4 had got rid of the clutter by going from nine tabs to just four and simplified the interface so it was easier to send a photo or begin a video call. The social giant had also introduced a dark mode, threaded replies and a ten-minute unsend window. During the F8 2019, the annual developer conference of Facebook, the company announced there would be even more changes coming to the Messenger in 2019.

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.

But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
