The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours


We already know the Huawei P30 exists and here we round up the rumours about when it will be announced and which features and specs it will have.

Huawei has two flagship phones, the Mate 20 Pro and the P20 Pro. The ‘P’ and Mate ranges are supposedly aimed at different audiences, but the fact is, the company releases a new flagship every six months.

We’ve recently been wowed by the features in the Mate 20 Pro, but there’s already talk of the P20 Pro’s successor. At IFA 2018 Huawei’s CEO confirmed that the P30 exists saying that, “the Mate 20 will be even better [than the P20 Pro], and next year the P30 will be better again.”

When Is The P30 Pro Release Date?
Expected launch: March 2019
Going by recent years, Huawei announces the new ‘P’ model in February or March. It may not be announced at MWC in Barcelona since earlier this year Huawei held its own launch event for the phone at the end of March in Paris.

It’s likely to do something similar in 2019.

How Much Will The P30 Pro Cost?
Again, the recent trend is for price hikes so we wouldn’t be at all surprised if the P30 Pro costs even more than the £899 Mate 20 Pro.

However, the P20 Pro costs £799, so it’s possible that its successor won’t be too much more expensive.

Really, it’s too early to know, so you’ll have to wait until the launch to find out for sure.

Naturally, there will be a Lite and standard version of the phone (simply ‘P30’) as well as the Pro model.

What Specs And Features Will The P30 Pro Have?
A couple of things are certain. For one, it will use the Kirin 980 processor. Huawei or, more specifically, HiSilicon, won’t launch an updated model in time for the P30 Pro’s launch, so just as the P20 Pro got the Kirin 970 after the Mate 10 Pro, the P30 Pro will use the 980 from the Mate 20 Pro.

That means any new features will be limited to the same processing power on offer in the Mate 20 Pro, but Huawei will improve the cameras somehow, as the P-series is all about photography.

New renders from case maker Olixar (shown below) reveal a quad-camera at the rear of the Huawei P30 Pro, and three lenses on the back of the standard model. Admittedly the images look a little odd and are bizarrely square, but they also reveal a waterdrop-style screen notch, unlike the 'punch-hole' design rumoured for other upcoming Huawei phones such as the Nova 4.
We expect the P30 Pro to ‘borrow’ some features from the Mate 20 Pro such as the curved screen, the 3D face-scanning camera and possibly the in-screen fingerprint reader.

But almost everything else is up in the air.

Here are the main specs and features we expect the P30 Pro to have:
  • Android 9 Pie
  • EMUI 9
  • Kirin 980 processor
  • Expandable storage via Huawei Nano Memory Card
  • 6- or 8GB RAM
  • Improved cameras vs Mate 20 Pro
  • 3D front camera system
  • No headphone jack
  • IP68 waterproofing
  • OLED screen
 As and when more information surfaces, we'll update this article.

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets.

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
