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.

LG G8 ThinQ Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

What to expect from LG's next flagship phone and when - here's everything we know about the LG G8 ThinQ launch date, specifications and anticipated price.

In previous years LG has always favoured the MWC tradeshow for its flagship phone launch, which is traditionally held in late February/early March. However, in 2018 the LG G7 ThinQ (pictured) was held back until May, and a general lack of whispers on the web suggests the same could be true in 2019.

Traditionally a true rival to Samsung's Galaxy S-series flagship, the gap has widened in recent years. But LG is still one of the best smartphone makers in the world, and we're excited to see what its 2019 G8 ThinQ has in store.

When Is The LG G8 ThinQ Release Date?
The G8 launch date has not been confirmed, but based on last year's pattern it could appear as late as May 2019.

ETNews suggests LG will announce a 5G phone at MWC in February, but that it won't be the LG G8 ThinQ - the company is reportedly still discussing branding.

The G8 is thought to be a 4G LTE-only handset, which ETNews says will arrive later in March 2019.

How Much Will The LG G8 ThinQ Cost?
With nothing to suggest otherwise, we suspect pricing will be in line with the outgoing flagship: expect the G8 to cost in the region of £600.

What Are The Rumoured Features And Specifications For The LG G8 ThinQ?
In common with other 2019 flagships the G8 will almost certainly carry the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which is the successor to the Snapdragon 845 seen in the G7.

This chip is significantly faster than the 845, and it also supports 5G connectivity. However, it's unlikely that the G8 will itself support 5G connectivity, since this will add to the overall cost. LG is expected to announce a different smartphone in early 2019 as its first 5G phone.

A feature recently tipped for the new LG phone is Sound On Display, which uses bone conduction and vibration to emit sound and would enable LG to lose the front speaker and free up more room for the screen. It's a technology Samsung is also reportedly working on, though it would appear LG could beat it to the punch. Without an earpiece we could see a new design that sees LG drop the screen notch.

The display could also be upgraded to feature a 4K resolution, according to Ice Universe, though this is another feature that adds cost without adding significant value. LG could keep down costs here by using LCD rather than AMOLED, which is a shame as we'd rather see a lower-resolution AMOLED screen.

It's also said to come with a triple-lens rear camera, though the exact specifications have not yet been detailed.

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.

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.
