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.

Razer Man O'War Wireless Review

Here's what we think of Razer's 7.1 surround sound-touting Man O'War Wireless

Should I Buy The Razer Man O'War Wireless?
The Razer Man O’War is an impressive and rather intuitive wireless gaming headset that could easily take on gaming headsets double the price.


Price When Reviewed
  • $169.99
With wireless connectivity, virtual 7.1 surround sound support, seven-day battery life and multi-platform support, the Razer Man O'War Wireless appears to be one of the best gaming headsets on the market right now. But with stiff competition from other premium headsets like the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 and Logitech's G933, does this wireless headset offer enough to tempt gamers?

We've spent a lot of time gaming with the Man O'War Wireless. Find out what we learnt in our Razer Man O'War Wireless review. 

Pricing And Availability
The Razer Man O'War Wireless isn't exactly one of the cheapest gaming headsets on the market with an RRP of £169.99/$179.99, but if you are on the market for a mid-to-high-end gaming headset, you can buy it from Razer, Amazon and other retailers.

Yes, it's pricy, but we think the range of features on offer makes it worth the money. Despite not having the sleek look of the similarly-priced Asos ROG Strix Fusion 500, the Man O'War Wireless makes up for it both in terms of audio quality and battery life.

Of course, you'll find that all for yourself if you carry on reading our review.

At just over half the price of the Astro A50, how does Razer’s wireless Man O’War gaming headset compare? While the Man O’War features 2.4GHz technology rather than 5GHz for wireless transmission, the 2.4GHz band provides a more reliable signal without compromising on response time.

It also features 7.1 virtual surround sound via the Razer Surround engine and 50mm Neodymium magnet drivers that provide impressive audio playback, which can be further tweaked via the Razer Synapse app for PC and Mac.

The first time you plug in the headphones, you’ll be taken through a virtual 7.1 surround sound setup that’ll tweak the audio output of the headphones based on your personal taste.

It doesn’t feature a base station like other wireless headsets, so how does it connect to your PC? It’s rather intuitive, actually. The USB receiver is built directly into the headset, and can be ejected with a push and be inserted into any PC, Mac or PS4 with plug’n’play support.

Although it can only be charged via a USB cable, the battery life is fairly impressive – it lasts around 14 hours per charge, or around seven days with an average of two hours of playback per day.

In terms of look, the Man O’War looks like your standard wireless gaming headset with huge, soft earcups for use over periods of extended use. There is one unique feature though – not one but two volume dials, one on each ear.

This is because the headphones feature two inputs; voice and game. If set up correctly, you can mix game audio and chat audio on the fly, adjusting the volume level on the left for chat, and right for game. It also features a retractable microphone with a unidirectional boom that allows it to be positioned however you desire, along with an algorithm that provides clearer voice reproduction.

There’s also a mute LED indicator on the end of the microphone so you don’t accidentally say something you shouldn’t while live streaming or Skyping!

Oh, and in typical Razer fashion, there’s Chroma support allowing gamers to change the colour of the Razer logo on the headset or sync it up with other Chroma-supported peripherals.

Verdict
Essentially, the Razer Man O’War is an impressive and rather intuitive wireless gaming headset that could easily take on gaming headsets double the price.

It ticks all the boxes, from wireless support to 7.1 surround sound support and great long-lasting battery life. It can also sync the LED-lit logo up with other Razer peripherals via the company's Chroma software for PC if that's your kind of thing.

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.
