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.



Nokia 9 PureView Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours

Nokia's long-awaited 9 PureView might arrive in January. We outline the rumours on the flagship's launch date, price and specifications.

When the Nokia 8 Sirocco arrived in February at MWC we told you it was the Nokia 9 we'd been waiting for. And it was, sort of. We also pointed out that it was running a 2017 Snapdragon 835 processor rather than the 2018 Snapdragon 845, and we've since learned this is because - obviously - the Nokia 8 Sirocco was the 'Nokia 9 2017' and the Nokia 9 2018 is yet to come.

It turns out the Nokia 9 is actually the Nokia 9 PureView, according to Roland Quandt, after HMD recently acquired the trademark. In the past PureView cameras have had very high megapixel counts. This doesn't mean the Nokia 9 will also pile on the pixels, but we should certainly be looking at a decent camera setup.

When Is The Nokia 9 Release Date?
Despite rumours of a luanch in 2018 from the likes of Nokia Power User, that didn't happen. An event on 4 October was for the Nokia 7.1 instead.

So the wait for the Nokia 9 PureView goes on but it will apparently arrive at the end of January according to Nokia Anew (translated). The site says an event will take place in the last week of the month, placing it oddly between CES and MWC.

How Much Will The Nokia 9 Cost?
It's common sense to assume the flagship Nokia 9 will cost more than the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which costs £649. With this in mind we'd expect the Nokia 9 to be priced around £700-£750.

What Are The Rumoured Features And Specifications For The Nokia 9?
The most exciting rumour we've heard about the upcoming Nokia 9 is that it will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is of course the tech we are hoping to see in the Galaxy S10 and OnePlus 6T. If Nokia can get out ahead of its rivals with that tech it could be garnering column inches for all the right reasons.

Nokia Power User claims this rumour has been confirmed by one of its trusted sources in China, but that this source also says the Nokia 9 could sport a screen notch in order to maximise screen area.

Other specification rumours include a Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, a Zeiss 22Mp dual-lens camera and a larger 5.7in Quad-HD+ POLED screen.

We'd expect it to feature the same high-end tech as the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which means you can also look forward to Qi wireless charging and IP67 waterproofing. There's no headphone jack on that phone, so expect to rely on USB-C for audio here, too.

We'll bring you more Nokia 9 rumours as we hear them.

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.
