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.



OnePlus 5G Phone Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

OnePlus is working with Qualcomm and EE to ensure it has one of the first 5G phones available in Europe, but when will the 5G OnePlus launch?

OnePlus is going to be one of the first smartphone makers to release a 5G phone in 2019, said co-founder Carl Pei at December's Qualcomm summit. It has been working on 5G since 2016 and has lined up partnerships with both EE - the network operator that pioneered 4G in the UK - and chip maker Qualcomm to ensure it is ready to go with the technology as soon as possible.

But what's particularly interesting for OnePlus fans is that the eventual handset is not going to be the OnePlus 7 - it will be too expensive to fit into the existing product line. And that means we could see two new flagship phones from the company arriving this summer.
When Is The OnePlus 5G Phone Coming Out?
In an interview with CNET Lau confirmed the 5G phone would arrive before the end of May 2019. EE will be the launch partner in the UK.

EE will roll out 5G support to 16 UK cities (10% of its portfolio, serving 25% of its customers) in 2019, starting with Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

How Much Will The OnePlus 5G Phone Cost?
With the company not expecting to see huge sales in 2019 the 5G OnePlus will not be priced for profit. However, it will be significantly more expensive than the current OnePlus 6T because the components necessary for 5G cost more - up to $200-$300 more.

So whereas the OnePlus 6T starts at £499, we could be looking at a price closer to £699 for the 5G OnePlus phone.

5G data plans will also be more expensive than current 4G tariffs.

OnePlus 5G Phone Features And Specifications
OnePlus has already confirmed that its 5G phone will be running the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which is successor to the 845 seen in the 6T and capable of taking on Apple's most recent A12 Bionic chips.

Not only does it support the faster connectivity standard, which is somewhere between 20- and 100 times faster than 5G in day-to-day use, but the processor is also 45% faster than the older chip in general processing, and 20% faster in graphics.

Lau told CNET that the first 5G phone from OnePlus will use the sub-6GHz spectrum, not the faster millimeter wave technology. Though slower, with peak downloads of 400- to 500Mbps (still significantly faster than 4G), this spectrum is more reliable and can travel longer distances.

A disadvantage of the faster 5G tech is that the extra components required place a heavy burden on the smartphone's design, adding weight and thickness, and OnePlus is keen not to have to compromise here. Instead, the company's 5G phone will look a lot like the OnePlus 6T, complete with a glass frame, waterdrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor.

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.
