Galaxy Fold is one of the most ambitious smartphones in this decade. Considering Samsung is just releasing the first generation of a folding device, everyone knew there would be small hiccups on the way. But for the past few days, Twitter and other blogs have been blasted with complaints regarding the screen issues of the Galaxy Fold. Some people have stripped the protective layer covering the screen thinking it was just a normal screen protector, thus ruining the display.  While in some cases, dust or clay entered the tiny space between the hinge and the screen, thereby affecting the device. Now Samsung has released a press release saying that they will be delaying the Galaxy Fold Launch until further notice.

We recently unveiled a completely new mobile category: a smartphone using multiple new technologies and materials to create a display that is flexible enough to fold. We are encouraged by the excitement around the Galaxy Fold.

 

While many reviewers shared with us the vast potential they see, some also showed us how the device needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience.

 

To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold. We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks.

 

Initial findings from the inspection of reported issues on the display showed that they could be associated with impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge. There was also an instance where substances found inside the device affected the display performance.

 

We will take measures to strengthen the display protection. We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer so that our customers get the most out of their Galaxy Fold.

 

We value the trust our customers place in us and they are always our top priority. Samsung is committed to working closely with customers and partners to move the industry forward. We want to thank them for their patience and understanding.

Reader Mode is a general feature available in most of the popular browsers. It basically declutters a webpage by removing unnecessary contents such as advertisement. Safari first included the Reader Mode back in 2010, followed by Microsoft in 2015 and recently Firefox in 2017.

All of them allows users to change the background colour, font size and font type to provide a comfortable reading environment.  Now the same feature has been spotted in Chrome’s experimental Canary release. We can expect the feature to be ported into the stable version soon. If you are already using Canary then you can toggle the feature on “chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode”. After that, all you need to do to enter Reader Mode is to click on the settings button on the top right and choosing the “Distill Page” option.

Vertical Gaming Mouse: Pros and Cons Before Buying https://www.onetechstop.net/2019/04/17/vertical-gaming-mouse-pros-and-cons-before-buying/ https://www.onetechstop.net/2019/04/17/vertical-gaming-mouse-pros-and-cons-before-buying/#respond Thu, 18 Apr 2019 02:24:48 +0000 https://www.onetechstop.net/?p=35566

If you are a gamer, you know how important it is to have the whole package: you can’t just have a gaming computer without completing the rest of the accessories. Buying your full set is like completing pieces of a puzzle, where each piece has its own advantage that leads up to excellent gaming skills. One of the small but essential accessories that you might look into buying is a vertical gaming mouse. Before you do so, however, read on to learn about the pros and cons of one.

The Pros

 

  1. Vertical mice are easier and more comfortable to use.

 

If you work the whole day in the office, you would understand how much of a strain it might be later on to your wrists. This constant strain often leads to physical problems, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The same holds true with gaming, especially since you are going to be putting so much strength and effort on your wrists.

 

With a vertical mouse, this strain is alleviated. This type of positioning was created, such that there is support and comfort provided on your wrists. It mimics a more comfortable resting position of your wrists so that gaming for more extended periods is a more pleasant experience.

 

Adding up to this factor of comfort, most vertical mice also come along with a wrist rest so that you can also rest your wrist with ease.

 

  1. Vertical mice boast of a cool look.

 

If you play live, you would know how much of a boost it is to your self-esteem and confidence if your overall gaming equipment and accessories are sleek and top of the line. A vertical mouse boasts of this cool look, which can make you popular with your co-players as well. If you are a seasoned gamer, for sure you are aware of how much it can help boost your performance and winning statistics. Many online and offline games now require a mouse and a keyboard, hence you have to keep yourself updated with the trend as well.

 

  1. Vertical mice are more portable than others.

 

A lot of vertical mice are also created to be relatively lightweight compared to their other mouse counterparts. Also adding to this fact is how there are no wires connected to it, making it easier to bring around. These advantages all lead to one benefit: its portability. If you ever have to travel somewhere for a gaming tournament, or to your friends’ house, you will have one less weight to worry about, as your mouse is built to be very light and portable.

 

The Cons

 

  1. Most vertical mice are battery operated.

 

As vertical mice were created to provide a more pleasant gaming experience, a part of this experience is the lesser obstruction of wires, that is common with ordinary computer sets. Most vertical mice are designed to be more sleek and modern, such that because there are no wires to connect the same to the computer, it is through batteries that they function properly.

 

Battery-operated mice are excellent for office or desk use. However, with gaming, this type can be a nuisance. If your mouse is battery-operated, imagine if it suddenly loses its power in the middle of a game: you get interrupted. Your performance gets affected, or you lose the game. For gamers, professional or not, this can be very unpleasant.

 

  1. Vertical mice are generally more expensive.

 

Because vertical mice are more up-to-date, they are also generally more expensive than that of a regular mouse. Hence, if you are a gamer on a budget, you may have to save up more, and a little bit longer to purchase this gaming mouse. However expensive, though, with the features that it boasts of, every dollar you save on the same will always come out as worth it.

 

  1. Vertical mice will take a lot of getting used to.

 

Switching from one ordinary mouse to another isn’t really a very difficult transition, being that almost every computer user is already accustomed to using the traditional mouse. If you are a first-timer switching to a vertical mouse, it is expected that your first few games with your new mouse will be very difficult. It will take a lot of getting used to before using a vertical mouse already becomes effortless for you.

 

It would, therefore, be more beneficial for you to change to a vertical mouse at a season with no gaming tournaments. If you are to join a gaming tournament, be sure that if you are planning to switch to a vertical mouse, you will do so months before the tournament so that you can give yourself room to get used to your new mouse.

 

Conclusion

 

Switching to a vertical mouse isn’t going to bring you easy success and wins right away, as it will take a lot of getting used to. However, expert gamers have noted that whatever change and adjustment you will have to make is always worth all the extra effort you have to put in to get used to the same. Your vertical gaming mouse will undoubtedly change your gaming experience for the better.

Unlike the previous devices, Samsung Galaxy S10 and its variants did not come with the notification LED. Creative developers and users then figured out an alternative. They used the area around the camera cutout to imitate a notification LED. While popular apps like ARC Lighting and Holey Light already made it possible, Samsung has now updated its Good Lock app with the same functionality.

Official Good Lock app’s EdgeLighting+ plugin previously let users have the effect on the edge of the display but now they added an option “Eclipse”  to put the effect around the camera cutout. You can also choose a different colour or multicolours. You can also decide on how long the animation will be played. While the feature works for all apps when the display is turned on, it works only for incoming calls and some preloaded apps when the display is locked. You can install or update the app from the Galaxy App Store.
