The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium could have a better camera than the iPhone X, Galaxy S9 and the Huawei P20 Pro. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Huawei P20 Pro boost of their wonderful camera features.. Now it’s Sony’s turn to boldly claim that its phone camera is the most advanced there is.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium has the highest-reaching hardware specs of all three phones in its line. It follows the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact announced in February 2018.
Sony has comprehensively redesigned the look and feel of its flagship phones for 2018. Where previous Xperia designs tended towards a boxy look that was somewhat reminiscent of Sony’s own Bravia TV lines, the new Xperia XZ2 features a more rounded, edge-to-edge display design, with a 5.7 inch OLED display.
At first glance, the camera specs are a tangle of terms: “highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording” and “ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos”. What you really need to know is that the Xperia XZ2 Premium promises to take crystal clear photos from its dual-lens camera on the back, and ultra low-light photos and videos using technology only seen on DSLR cameras with interchangeable lenses.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium also has super slow-motion that captures video at a rate of 960fps. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus also can do that, too, and so can the Huawei P20 Pro. But it is a big deal because Sony’s phone shoots at a much higher resolution than the Galaxy S9 phones — 1080p and 720p resolution versus only 720p — which means that the Xperia XZ2 Premium’s super-slow video should be clearer and more detailed.
Also the dual camera has one color lens and a monochrome lens. While it will have a dedicated black-and-white mode and a portrait mode also known as the bokeh effect, that softly blurs the background to make the subject pop, Sony says these will roll out sometime in “Q3” to Sony’s global markets, so sometime between June and September.
The full Xperia XZ2 Premium specs
The Xperia XZ2 comes with 5.8-inch screen with 4K pixel resolution and has dual camera lens (RGB and monochrome), with portrait mode with super slow-motion video capture in 720p or 1080p resolution and13-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone also offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 3,540mAh battery and has Water resistance: IP65/IP68. The phone OS is Android 8.0 Oreo and body of Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides coming in colors with Chrome black, chrome silver and will be available in Australia soon. You expect the Xperia XZ2 to attract premium pricing in line with its positioning, although quite where Sony positions it remains to be seen. Based on prior pricing history, expect to pay somewhere between $1,000 and $1,200, although it’s feasible it could end up being even higher.
In a world where a staggering amount of people are obese, more people are turning to apps for diet tips. Today over 2 billion people are overweight, which accounts for 30% of the population.

Even though it endured plenty of leaks, LG’s G7 ThinQ held its ground when it was unveiled in New York. Instead of trying to undermine it, they embraced the notch as an inevitable feature for a premium phone in 2018. They also kept the headphone jack, upgraded the speakers and incorporated an AI camera. There’s a button that’s dedicated for the Google Assistant, so all bases are covered with this new phone. In a world filled with premium smartphones, it will be interesting to see if the G7 ThinQ manages to stand out.
When we tested this phone, we were pleasantly surprised. The G7 ThinQ harnesses a lot of the key features that have now become standard on premium phones. While it didn’t disappoint, it’s up against some stiff competition. Between Huawei, Samsung and the looming release of the next iPhone, LG had their work cut out for them. Take a look at this new release to see if they will be able to compete with the usual tech giants in 2018!
Examining the G7 ThinQ
When holding LG’s G7 ThinQ, it’s impossible not to be reminded of the iPhone X. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it fails to stand out dramatically with its design. There’s a large notch in its 6.1 inch QHD screen that can be transformed into a notification bar. While the 3120 x 1440 LCD display is vibrant, it won’t blow anyone away either. This expected averageness can be seen throughout the specs of the phone.
Under the hood, the G7 ThinQ simultaneously fails to outdo or disappoint any expectations. Like the Galaxy S9, its powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and ships with Android Oreo. The G7 ThinQ also has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. There’s a rear mounted fingerprint sensor, an increasingly elusive headphone jack and IP68 dust and water resistance. All this is fueled by a 3,000mAh battery that supports wireless charging.
The first notable improvement LG made with the G7 ThinQ is its speakers. This model features Hi-Fi quad-DAC Boombox speakers that are accompanied by DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. The latter caters exclusively to those who love using headphones, which is why they kept the headphone jack. This is the first time that a smartphone has boasted 7.1-channel audio, so it’s a big deal.
Out of all the features, the G7 ThinQ’s camera is the most celebrated. Its 16MP rear camera and 8MP selfie camera are powered by LG’s AI technology. This allows the camera to recognize objects and apply one of 18 filters to them. The automatic contrast, saturation and color adjustments create photos and videos that are 4 times brighter than the G6. While these shots are far from low quality, they fail to completely blow away what competitors are already offering.
Aside from these features, the rest of the G7 ThinQ’s specs are less than impressive. There’s a Google Assistant button that can be deactivated by those who prefer independence. The price has yet to be announced, but if it mimics the G6 it will be cheaper than the Galaxy S9. At the end of the day, LG didn’t disappoint or impress with this phone. As customers hang on to their phones longer, whether this release will save LG remains to be seen. It’s just another quality phone in a sea of stiff competition, which isn’t a bad accomplishment for a struggling company.
Recently Sydney-based mobile commerce start-up SkyBuys struck a deal with Heinemann Australia to trial the SkyBuys App and technology platform for duty free shopping. Announced at the Airbus BizLab DemoDay in Hamburg, the SkyBuys-Heinemann Australia project is scheduled to begin in Q3 2018 at Sydney Airport.
The SkyBuys App allows international passengers to shop for duty free at any stage of their journey, including inflight. The App allows passengers to search and purchase duty free inventory in-app from the time they receive their ticket through to the time they arrive at their destination, with fulfilment in-store through duty free shops in airports or downtown.
According to the SkyBuys CEO and Founder Alec Kemmery today’s passengers are “increasingly connected and demand a better experience” when they fly and its App addresses this by delivering a duty free shopping application that enhances the end-to-end journey experience.
For the project with Heinemann, during H2 2018 passengers arriving and departing from Sydney Airport can use the SkyBuys App to buy goods from Heinemann duty free stores. Geo-fencing technology used by SkyBuys will also ensure passengers are reminded, within the airport precinct, of items they have tagged as being of interest. Additionally, Heinemann and brand partners will be able to use the SkyBuys App to push notifications to passengers alerting them to special offers or to new product lines.
Features of the Skybags App
As said above International airline passengers can browse, compare and save items, and then buy duty free based on their itinerary, at any point on their journey even in-flight!
- Search by category or location. Includes access to inventories in participating airport duty free stores, in-flight duty free and “downtown” city based duty free shops.
- Use SkyBuys to compare and discover the best price at the best location to buy duty free, based on your travel and flight itineraries.
- Save items to your personal wishlist. Get alerts and notifications on items at various stages of your journey, including as you walk through airport stores. Share wishlists and items with friends.
- Cut out queues with seamless payment solutions. Save items into a wishlist ahead of your travel so you forget items, or miss out on offers or turn up to find items are not in stock.
- Get reminders and updates with special offers on your mobile and access convenient payment and delivery options based on your Itinerary.
Note that SkyBuys functions where airport duty free stores, airlines and “downtown” city based duty free shops partner with SkyBuys Pty Ltd to make their inventories accessible to Passengers via the SkyBuys App; and, SkyBuys requires Passengers to have access to wireless or mobile data services. Also not all airlines provide in-flight wireless services.
Heinemann is the world’s leading duty free groups. Heinemann have a significant investment in technology and logistics for travel retail, and were the first duty free company to utilise technology to develop a highly personalised digital offer for customers linked to in-store privileges. SkyBuys sees this as a logical fit with SkyBuys’ online-to-offline mobile commerce focus, and their ability to offer a revolutionary service to the passengers will extend the world-class shopping experience already on offer at Sydney Airport.
According to Heinemann Australia Managing Director Constantin Wiesmann the retailer is keen to trial new ideas. As they have inspiring shoppers since 1879, their goal is to remain an engine of innovation in the travel retail market while continually surprising travellers with outstanding offers and ideas. Engaging with new technologies, such as SkyBuys, is an important part of achieving this objective.
SkyBuys has been in discussions with Heinemann since being selected for the acceleration program at Airbus BizLab in Hamburg in October 2017, where Kemmery is currently based. The SkyBuys project with Heinemann in Sydney represents the first live trial with a global concessionaire. Before this, SkyBuys developed its beta at Airbus BizLab with the Airbus Shop, allowing the start-up to showcase the functionality of the SkyBuys App and to test user experience, payment integration and fulfilment options.
You can get the app at app stores all free to download on your smartphones as well. Note that as the app requires GEO location to work your phone battery may drain out faster so better keep your phone charged.
Even though larger than life jackpots routinely steal the show, some gambling losses are just as impressive. In environments where millions are made and spent in seconds, it’s amazing what kinds of cash people go through. The wild financial fluctuations witnessed in casinos highlight how quickly dreams can go up in smoke. From epic come ups to terrifying losses, no venues witness more extreme transitions than casinos. But even in an industry that has seen it all, some gambling losses manage to stand out.
To get an idea of how impressive the gambling industry is, there’s no need to look further than the biggest losses. The amount of money that certain punters throw away is absolutely staggering. What could be considered a fortune by some is spent on a whim by others. To highlight the massive disparity amongst punters, we compiled a list of the biggest gambling losses of all-time. It’s absolutely sickening to see what these punters spent, especially given the fact that theses losses could have been avoided. Learn how to know when to quit by examining this historic list of gambling losses!
Biggest Gambling Losses Ever Recorded
Gambling Loss #3: £650,000 EuroBet UK Scam – Instead of always being the player’s fault, some losses were perpetrated by shady online casinos to avoid paying massive jackpots. When Bruno Venturi won £650,000 online, he thought it was his lucky day. Through sheer luck, he had turned £17 into £650,000 while playing on Eurobet UK. During his two years playing at this online casino, this was the largest amount that he had ever won.
Unfortunately, Eurobet wasn’t about to let this 41 years old pet shop worker from Naples win that easily. Instead of paying him the money, they voided his winnings on random technicalities. Blaming a software bug that only charged him for one of six of his bets, Eurobet labelled his winning streak fraudulent. Even though Bruno didn’t receive any viable alternatives, there was no way to successfully claim his jackpot. This fateful brush with luck made the once avid punter quit gambling for good. That may be a positive thing, since it would be hard to ever outdo that £650,000 jackpot.
Gambling Loss #2: Terrance Watanabe’s $127 Million Year – When most people start losing, it’s only a matter of time before they are forced to quit. Unfortunately for Oriental Trading Company CEO Terrance Watanabe, money wasn’t a limiting factor. Faced with a nearly unlimited budget and a vicious gambling addiction, this infamous punter lost $127 million in a year. This staggering losing streak was only achieved by 24-hour gambling binges that routinely lost $5 million a day. To maximize Terrance’s playing capabilities, employees at Harrah’s Entertainment Inc let him bet 3 blackjack hands at once. They also showered him with cocktails and prescription pain killers.
This questionable business practice ended up leading to a massive court case. During a long legal showdown, Terrance tried to get out of paying $14.7 million in credit that the casino gave him. Even though the casino’s actions were devious, Terrance wound up in more trouble than them. In 2009, he was charged with four felony counts of intent to defraud and steal. On top of having to live with squandering a $127 million family fortune, Terrance also had to be incarcerated.
Gambling Loss #1: $1.5 Billion in 14 Months – When it comes to horrific casino losses, no punter can beat Harry Kakavas. This real estate mogul made his fortune on Australia’s Gold Coast. Unfortunately, thanks to his passion for gambling he is constantly fighting to recoup his losses. In just five hours of betting $300,000 per hand, he lost a record $164 million. The madness didn’t stop there, since Kakavas lost $20.5 million at one casino alone. Faced with almost daily multi-million dollar losses, Kakavas’ almost ruined his life to come up with funds. Aside from multiple court cases fighting casinos, he had to spend a small amount of time in jail for stealing $286,000. In total Kakavas gambled away $1.5 billion in 14 months, which proves the danger of an addict with no limits.
Even though it’s the last thing most people expect, there are plenty of apps for pets. Despite sounding silly, this genre of programs is exploding in popularity. There are 144 million dogs and cats in the US alone, so developers haven’t missed out on this market. Every year more people get pets, and a growing number of pet owners are turning to apps for advice. This fresh interest has created a massive demand for apps geared towards pets. From entertainment options to exercise schedules, there’s no shortage of apps to choose from.
Developers have been cranking out apps for pets for years, so the options are staggering. Now pet owners have a slew of apps to choose from to help them be the best owners possible. When faced with so many apps, picking the right one can be daunting. To help put the spotlight on the best ones, we compiled a list of the top apps for pets. They are a lot more useful than most people would assume, so don’t miss out on these programs!
Best Apps for Pets
App #3: ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center – One of the most challenging parts of being a pet owner is taking charge when something goes wrong. Every year, thousands of pets die from poisoning. Most of these fatalities can be avoided with a combination of prevention and education. This app helps pet owners tackle both issues by providing a sneak peak to the ASPCA’s database. They take the guesswork out of diagnosing poisoning with a treasure-trove of helpful information. The app highlights substances that can be poisonous for cats, dogs, birds and horses.
This covers every kind of pet and a staggering amount of potentially life threatening ingestions. From common household items to plants that can be toxic, there’s no shortage of things your pets should avoid. If your pet does consume one of these substances, everything danger is ordered by a color coded risk assessment. This includes what symptoms to expect and what actions the pet owner should take. For serious symptoms, the app provides a one touch dial to the ASPCA’s poison control hotline.
App #2: BarkHappy – This social media app revolves around people who love dogs. By utilizing certain filters, they match up pets that are compatible with your dog. This is similar to Tinder, but more plutonic. Once pets are matched, they can meet up for a play date or long walk. To give users ideas of what to do, the app provides lists of dog friendly venues. These range from parks to hotels, so there’s no excuse not to get out. Another benefit of the app is it connects dog owners, so the potential for cultivating human relationships is a plus.
App #1: Pet Coach – When purchasing a pet, it doesn’t come with a manual. This leaves new owners on their own to figure out to how to raise this new addition to their lives.

They provide valueable insight on nutrition, training and keeping your pet healthy. Every pet deserves an educated owner, so rise up to the challenge with this informative app!

Out of all the contenders in 2018, none are more promising than the Huawei P20 Pro. While the P10 turned heads in 2017, the P20 Pro is preparing to take the industry by storm. Armed with a massive battery and a 40 MP camera, this daring flagship aims to outdo both Apple and Samsung. On top of making users question their favorite brands, the P20 Pro is putting Huawei in the international spotlight. Despite failing to break into the American market, the future looks bright for Huawei.
Even though the Chinese brand has long been viewed as an iPhone knock off, this year they have reinvented themselves. The P20 Pro boasts a slew of features that make them stand out amongst fierce competition. This is good news, since it’s retailing at €899. To showcase how far this company has come, we tested the P20 Pro for days. We realized that this phone may be the best smartphone release in 2018. Discover the reasoning behind these bold claims by diving into our in-depth review. Huawei is changing the game, so don’t miss out on this revolution!
Exploring the Huawei P20 Pro’s Capabilities
When examining the Huawei P20 Pro, it’s impossible not to be reminded of the iPhone X. Like Apple’s most expensive release, it boasts a gorgeous 6.1-inch OLED screen that stretches across the phone. The P20 Pro also has a glass back that sports a slew of interesting colors. All three of the back cameras create a small bump, which makes it hard to balance the phone on a flat surface. This complaint is minor, since the rest of the features are stunning.
While some may complain about the P20 Pro’s notches, they are responsible for great features. These key areas are home to a front facing fingerprint sensor and a 24MP camera. Both offer innovative ways to keep your information secure, since the front camera enables a Face Unlock option. While the finger print sensor is extremely sensitive, the Face Unlock option can analyze your face with the 24MP camera. This depth allows users to unlock their phones by glancing at it in any lighting condition. Even with dim lighting, the Face Unlock feature worked flawlessly for us.
Out of all the features on the P20 Pro, the cameras steals the show. Their 24MP selfie camera is backed up by three rear cameras. These comprise of a 40MP camera with a f/1.8 lens, 20MP f/1.6 monochrome camera and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera. In total that’s 92MP that are combined into a 10MP final shot. This impressive array of cameras outdoes what’s available on the Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. All this power is regulated by Master AI, which switches through filters according to what’s being shot.
On top of having an epic camera system, the battery on the P20 Pro is larger than life. While the competition has to conform with a 3,000 to 3,500mAh battery, the P20 Pro boasts a 4,000mAh battery. This allows users to go two days without charging on moderate usage. For solid on-screen time streaming video, the P20 Pro still lasts a whopping 18 hours. This is a blessing, since the P20 Pro doesn’t have wireless charging.
At the end of the day, Huawei went the extra mile with the P20 Pro. With 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, it easily competes against Apple’s and Samsung’s best offerings. After examining its superior camera system and massive battery, it’s clear that Huawei is an industry titan. This release will sweep all the major markets except America, so it will be exciting to see how the industry reacts.
5G is the fifth generation of wireless broadband technology and as described by tech giant Huawei, (one of the world’s leaders in 5G innovation) it is 1000 times faster than 4G. It would not be long that you all will experience 5G by the year 2020. You will have faster technology in your hands and more powerful and effective speed to download your favourite movie or games. According to various news sources Huawei, which builds network equipment and smartphones, has more than 1000 engineers and scientists working on 5G projects where people will have better experiences when using their cellular and broadband devices like at smart cities, connected cars, 5G cloud robotics and virtual reality.
How will 5G be used?
This year at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai Huawei demonstrated the world’s first remote driving field test for a smart consumer car on a 5G network, a test it carried with China Mobile. The driver sat 30 kilometres away from his car. High definition video cameras inside the car sent him real time HD video feeds over 5G providing him with a 240 degree view of the vehicle’s surroundings.
Signals for the steering wheel, accelerator and brakes were also transmitted over the network, which provided the ultra-low latency (the technical term for turning around data quickly) needed to support instant response to different road side conditions. At 30 km/h, the distance between braking and actual deceleration was only eight centimetres.
Also 5G be used for smart manufacturing. Imagine 5G enabled, wireless collaborative robots, ushering in another industrial revolution. Factories could operate as autonomous entities, with machines exchanging information in real time.
Pokies and games are not far behind when we speak of 5G for gaming. As VR experiences are usually either tethered to a computer by cable or rely on a smartphone to deliver the experience. According to media reports right now at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen zombies using 5G wireless technology that delivered not only 360% streaming visuals to a headset, but also tracked motion in real time are tested and researched.
5G Mobile Phones
Many of the telecom companies including Intel, Qualcomm, Nokia, and Samsung have already launched their devices that will support future technology. The upcoming 5G Mobile Network Technology will be significantly faster than 4G. It will be able to distribute the theoretical download speed of up to 10,000 Mbps. Additionally, the technology comes with a greater bandwidth, that turns its download speed more faster and has the ability to run more complex mobile Internet apps.
As per the estimation on the basis of top researchers, the 5G Mobile Technology will cost more. Now, the integration of the 5G technology have started to implement and the other handsets could be out of date. The addition to the 5G to the wireless spectrum could put us at risk of overcrowding the frequency range.
With successful use of 4G technology, telecommunication companies are looking forward to 5G Technology as a new step in the communication network. The major achievement of this technology is to have fast downloaded with small use data. It can hope that 5G Mobile Wireless Technologies will be completely achieved in 2020.
The 5G latest mobile wireless standard is based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard of broadband technology. To meet the 5G, the connection should meet the following requirements: have up to 10Gbps connections to endpoints in the field, 1000x bandwidth per unit area, 10 to 100 number of connected devices, 100% coverage and up to 10-year battery life for low-power.

In Australia and New Zealand, it’s likely to become commercially available in the early 2020 and companies like Huawei and other carriers are working hard to make it happen. First you will get 4.5 (LTE-Advanced Pro). Spark has already rolled it out in Queenstown and more places are likely to follow. Huawei will also open an “Innovation Lab” at Victoria University which will focus on maximising the potential of the Internet of Things through future technology, most notably 5G.
Like other generations 5G isn’t also without challenges like the possibility of 5G frequencies being blocked by buildings and losing their intensity over longer distances which could undermine wider coverage. But certainly 5G mobile network technology will bring more new features along with the speed. The upcoming 5G mobile wireless technology is expected to be on the road map by late 2018. Companies are trying their best from the researching of 5G mobile network. Although it’s an initial stage and users need to wait up till 2020 for getting the complete setup. Stay tuned here for more such updates on mobile technology.
