Harish Jonnalagadda 28 Feb 2021 0 Source: Android Central Phone manufacturers have waged a war on bezels over the last four years, and the result is that even budget phones these days have ultra-thin bezels on all sides. Thin bezels mean you get a larger screen-to-body ratio, allowing brands to cram a larger screen without increasing the dimensions of the phone. For some context, the Galaxy S9+ had a 6.2-inch panel, and the Galaxy S21 offers the same screen size even though it is 6.4mm shorter. Xiaomi was the one to kick off this particular trend back in 2016 with the Mi Mix, which offered a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio. Xiaomi achieved this by changing the location of the front camera module to the bottom bezels, leading to an all-screen design. … [Read more...] about Why don’t we see any more pop-up selfie cameras?

The $829 (£799, AU$1,349) iPhone 12 has two rear cameras and Samsung's $800 (£769, AU$1,249) Galaxy S21 has three rear cameras. Are more cameras better? Or does a higher price mean better photos? To find out, I did a good old-fashioned camera shootout. The results surprised me. There aren't many people deciding between an iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21 based solely on their cameras. Maybe there is a small niche of professional photographers, like me, who'd use cameras to decide between a Galaxy S21 Ultra or an iPhone 12 Pro Max. But most people stick to what they know and if someone switches from iOS to Android or the other way around, cameras won't be the only deciding factor. Cut through the chatter Subscribe to CNET's Mobile newsletter for the latest phone news and reviews. With that acknowledgement of reality out of the way, let's take a look at these cameras. Despite a similar price, the Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 represent two different approaches to phone … [Read more...] about This iPhone and Samsung Galaxy camera comparison was not what I expected
“ARE DREXCIYANS WATER-BREATHING, AQUATICALLY MUTATED DESCENDANTS OF THOSE UNFORTUNATE VICTIMS OF HUMAN GREED? ... DID THEY MIGRATE FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO TO THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER BASIN AND ON TO THE GREAT LAKES OF MICHIGAN? DO THEY WALK AMONG US? ARE THEY MORE ADVANCED THAN US, AND WHY DO THEY MAKE THEIR STRANGE MUSIC? WHAT IS THEIR QUEST?” With those all-caps words, musician and writer James Stinson wrote the constitution for the mythic, rhythmic nation of Drexciya —a world that he and partner Gerald Donald created in the liner notes of their experimental music project. Their combined work, in the form of five EPs of cutting-edge techno music, did not necessarily sound so politically or culturally charged. Because Stinson and Donald did not participate in interviews or widely tour in support of their albums, Drexciya's listeners were left to look at the stories and questions that covered the liner notes and artwork printed on the releases' vinyl and CD versions. Should you … [Read more...] about Inside the stunning Black mythos of Drexciya and its Afrofuturist ’90s techno
Great news, fashionistas — your wildest denim dreams are about to come true. Nordstrom is taking the super stylish trend of completely destroying normal jeans and then selling them as ~super unique~ items of clothing to a whole other level with *drumroll please* fake mud jeans! SEE ALSO: Dear Topshop, stop trying to make clear plastic jeans happen. Love, the internet. If you're asking yourself what in the world fake mud jeans are, you're overthinking this — for fake mud jeans are exactly as they sound: jeans featuring fake mud. This may sound silly at first, but fake mud jeans are a luxury perhaps even more prestigious than ripped jeans. We know this because Nordstrom is selling them for $425, which proves they must be phenomenal. Faded jeans with holes in them used to sound like the dumbest idea of all time, so fake mud jeans will probably make billions. @Nordstrom — Mike Welch (@RealMikeWelch) April 25, 2017 The "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans" are … [Read more...] about Nordstrom is selling fake mud jeans for the unbelievably low price of $425
