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.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 5

Microsoft's Surface Pro tablets have been right at the top of the market for a while now and we're going to compare the recent release of the Surface Pro 6 to its predecessor.

The specs for the Surface Pro 6 seem to indicate a large boost in performance over the 5, considering it’s the first time a quad-core processor has been seen inside a Surface Pro. This much of a performance boost for a 10% increase in price seems like a good trade up, and when you include the much longer promised battery life the Surface Pro 6 is starting to look like a winner.


PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $899
The Surface Pro 6 has arrived and is looking rather dashing in black.

The Surface Pro 6 is back and releases on 16 October, bringing new features and a matte black finish. We’re going to compare it to the Surface Pro 5 and see which is the better buy.

Microsoft’s flagship detachable has returned to us in the form of the Surface Pro 6. We’re going to stack it up against the previous generation and compared the features, so we can see what has really changed over the past year.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The Surface Pro 6 is slightly more expensive than its predecessor at £879($899) for the cheapest version, stretching up to £2149($1899).

Preorders for the Surface Pro 6 are available now with the full launch on 16 October.

The Surface Pro 5 is Microsoft’s previous generation and so is a little older, but still no less powerful at £799 ($799) for the basic version and £2699 ($2699) for the top tier.

DESIGN
Aside from the Surface Pro 6 being available in a matte black finish, which is a stark contrast to the traditional platinum we’re used to, there isn’t a whole lot of difference between the Surface Pro 5 and 6 in terms of design.

Both weigh roughly 1.7 pounds and occupy the same 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33-inch measurements. Sadly the bezels haven’t reduced in size but you can’t have everything.

The ports are also identical, which means no USB-C port which Microsoft seems to be doing its level best to avoid.

The upgrade in specs from 5 to 6 has resulted in a reported 67 percent boost in performance according to Intel as this is the first Surface Pro to house a quad-core processor.

The promised ‘all day battery life’ will list up to 13 hours which is an impressive jump over the previous version assuming it’s an accurate claim.

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).

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.
