Four Tet - Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 Music Album Reviews

Kieran Hebden’s new live album reminds us that he is a stellar performer, not just a producer.
The British producer Kieran Hebden has one of the most distinctive signatures in electronic music. First, a gravelly drum machine; then, some jewel-toned synth pads; and, finally, a strip of harp or chimes or wordless cooing, unspooling like wrinkled ribbon.

Samsung Galaxy X Release Date & Feature Rumours

Samsung Galaxy X Release Date & Feature Rumours
Samsung is working on a phone with a foldable screen, known as the Galaxy X. It is said that the phone will be announced in January 2019, and will be on show at MWC at the end of February.

The Galaxy X was reportedly shown to insiders at January's CES show, and has already passed certification and popped up on Samsung's support site.

Bloomberg says the company plans to announce the foldable phone under its Note brand.

When is the Samsung Galaxy X release date?
Samsung told investors in January 2018 that the foldable Galaxy X would launch in 2018. However, reports from Korea now suggest it will be shown off at MWC in February 2019.

Samsung said: “In 2018, we will differentiate through the development of cutting-edge products, such as foldable OLED smartphones.”

But the bad news is that Samsung’s quirky folding phone might be tough to bag, with Forbes stating that “the expectation for the Galaxy X is as a limited-run device in a single territory - more than likely the home territory of South Korea”. It adds that it will be one of the rarest phones in 2018.

What is the Galaxy X price?
If rumours on the Galaxy X pricing are true, we have no trouble believing it will be a rare handset. Samsung's foldable phone is expected to cost as much as $1850.

That's around £1400, but it's unlikely we'll pay that in the UK. Usually pound and dollar prices are more or less the same, so we could be looking at a smartphone that's just a couple hundred pounds cheaper than buying two iPhone Xs.

What are the rumoured specifications for the Galaxy X?
The Samsung Galaxy X was originally rumoured to be a 5in phone that could fold out into an 8in tablet, but it’s now suspected to fold out into a 7in tablet. It’s indeed possible that there will actually be two Samsung foldable phones released.

According to rumours the screen resolution is expected to be 4K (3840x2160 pixels), ensuring that it remains high-res when folded. The Galaxy X could also feature a dual-camera at the rear, one of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processors - most likely now the Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810- and at least 6GB of RAM. There should be a microSD card slot, but the battery will not be removable. 

A patent application filed by Samsung in late 2016 shows some renders of what the eventual Galaxy X may look like (via Sammobile):

What is a foldable phone?
A foldable phone is exactly as it sounds, one that either folds inward (like a clamshell phone) or outward and reveals a tablet-like device when stretched out. This is possible with the use of a bendable (rather than flexible, as seen in the Galaxy S7 edge) OLED panel.

Samsung, Lenovo and LG have each showed off bendable displays and devices at various industry events, and have registered many patents for the technology. Previously called Project Valley, Samsung’s technology has become known as the Samsung Galaxy X, which may or may not be its eventual name upon release.

Samsung originally worked on fold-in phones, which close up like a wallet, but having completed its work there it has moved on to fold-out phones. These should be more convenient for the user, who wouldn’t need to unfold the phone every time they wanted to use it.

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 vs Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G: Head-to-Head On Vodafone’s 5G Network

Should you upgrade to 5G? We compare the 4G and 5G variants of Mi Mix 3 running on Vodafone’s network to see whether it’s worth taking the plunge.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3?
The Mi Mix 3 5G is faster and has a higher-capacity battery than the standard Mi Mix 3, yet weighs only 8g more. And while Vodafone’s 5G network is patchy right now, by the time you’re even halfway through your 24-month contract we should be in a completely different situation in terms of coverage. But are you prepared to pay double dollar for the priviledge of future-proofed connectivity and slightly better performance on an already fast phone?
