Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.





Google Pixel 3a Release Date, Price And Specs

All the latest rumours on the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL, the imminent mid-range Pixel phones that we hope will boast the same amazing cameras as the high end models

Now in its third generation, Google’s line of Pixel phones are some of the best you can buy. With slick design, clever software but above all incredible cameras, they are sought after devices – but at a price.

Google is preparing a more affordable way into the Pixel life by releasing the mid-range Pixel 3a phones. Long-rumoured, Google has also accidentally confirmed their existence on its own website.

Here’s all the latest on the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

When Is The Google Pixel 3a Coming Out?
It can’t be long until the Pixel 3a and 3a XL are announced for two reasons: the high-end Pixel 3 and 3 XL were announced in November 2018, and the latest 3a leaks have happened in April 2019.

That’s five months later, so to retain the ‘3’ branding before a Pixel 4 hits, the Pixel 3a is likely to be unveiled around May, mid-way through the flagship Pixel 3’s lifetime.

How Much Will The Google Pixel 3a Cost?
This is less clear. The Pixel 3 costs from £739 / $799 while the Pixel 3 XL goes for £869 / $899, so the Pixel 3a phones will surely have to retail firmly in the mid-range to differentiate themselves.

We are hoping the regular Pixel 3a will cost around £399 / $399, just over half the Pixel 3. But this could be wishful thinking, and the new phones could start at more than that given the usual Google hardware premium for its phones.

What Features Will The Google Pixel 3a Have – Or Lose?
A strong rumour is that the Pixel 3a and 3a XL will retain the exact same incredible rear camera of the normal Pixel 3 line. This would be unusual in the smartphone market as mid-range phones never have the same quality features as their higher end counterparts.

Were Google to put the same amazing camera in the Pixel 3a but drive the price down by using a lesser screen, more plastic, and cheaper, less powerful internals it’d be great for customers who want a great camera in their pocket but can’t afford the normal Pixel.

As the below screengrab via 9to5Google shows, the official Google Store accidentally jumped the gun by displaying tabs for ‘Pixel 3a’ and a ‘Pixel 3a Case’, backing up the imminent arrival of the phones.

What Are The Google Pixel 3a Specs?
Just before the above leak 9to5Google also found specs for both the Pixel 3a and 3a XL via the Google Play Developer console. It confirms the codenames for both phones; the Pixel 3a is ‘Sargo’ and the Pixel 3a XL is ‘Bonito’:

This leak doesn’t confirm the processor in either phone but shows 4GB RAM (the same as the flagship Pixel 3), the sizes of the 1080p displays and, as expected Android 9 Pie.

It’s unclear if these recent leaks are, after all, indeed the hardware that leaked all the way back in November 2018 via Rozetked. This early leak showed a phone with familiar Pixel design, a headphone jack not seen on a Google phone since 2016’s Pixel and a spec test that suggested a Snapdragon 670 inside.

We’ll report on the release of the Pixel 3a when Google officially confirms its existence. Looks like that’ll be very soon.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Spinach, Asian Pear & Chicken Salad

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Synology DS419slim Review

The DS419slim fills a unique niche by being a NAS drive that exclusively accepts only 2.5in drives. A limitation that is perhaps more of a curse than a blessing. Find out why in our review.
Should I Buy The Synology DiskStation DS419slim?
On paper a NAS drive that uses 2.5in drives might seem interesting until you realise the limited sizes available for NAS use, and the cost of owning them.
Unless you really need a compact NAS drive, another model is likely to be a better choice.

Chicken, Brussels Sprouts & Mushroom Salad

Shaving the vegetables for this easy salad recipe makes them deliciously tender-crisp without having to cook anything and helps them stand up to the bright homemade vinaigrette and salty Parmesan cheese.
