Advantages and Disadvantages of Wireless Earbuds

Published

on

Gone are the days of the struggle with untangling wired earphones in your pockets. The brand new phase of devices that enable anyone to listen to music in their own privacy is here, the Wireless Earbuds. But are they any good? Should you buy an earbud when quality wired earphones are available in plenty? Would you lose it easily? Here we explain in detail the pros and cons of owning the wireless earbuds. These advantages and disadvantages Of Wireless Earbuds will help you to make your choice of purchase easy and wise.

Advantages of Wireless earbuds

Wireless Earbuds are comfortable

In terms of comfortability, earbuds are second to none. They are so small and comfy that you might forget that they are placed in your ears until some music starts playing. The lack of wires also makes it easy to use. You don’t have to worry about hooking them onto anything either. As far as fitting the earbuds in your ear is concerned, they all come in a standard size that should fit everyone. But it definitely is not going to fit everyone. So before buying, check if it fits comfortably in your ear. Some companies do provide multiple sized ear tips along with the box. One of them should fit you comfortably.

They are Long lasting

Durability is a factor that should be looked into while buying a headset whether they are wired or not. And compared to the wired earphones, the earbuds definitely are more durable. The simple reason being that the wire can easily wear out. The connection point between the wire and the jack is always a problematic area for wired earphones. They are only going to last so long. Twisting and turning eventually will meet its toll. Compared to this, the small earbuds are tough, rugged and durable. Normal wear and tear should not affect them as they just lie on your ears all the time. As long as you take care of your electronics when they are away from your body, they should be fine for a long time.

The audio quality of wireless earbuds is top notch

One of the common doubts among the users is would the audio quality in a wireless headset be any good? Won’t there be distortions, as is the case with most things wireless? The answer would have been negative had this been 2015. But in 2019, wireless technologies have advanced to a point to rival the wired technologies.

As you would know, a wireless headset uses Bluetooth technology to transmit data between devices. In the past, Bluetooth technology did have its downsides. But not today, with the latest aptX HD technology, Bluetooth is now capable of transmitting High Definition (HD) audio from your smartphones to your wireless headsets without loss of transmission or distortions.

There is no compression of data occurring here, as was the case with the older versions of Bluetooth. The quality of audio would be the same as that in any wired headsets. So primarily, while considering buying the wireless earbuds, you do not have to worry about audio quality. They are guaranteed to provide top-notch quality.

Disadvantages of wireless earbuds

The high risk of losing an Earbud.

Let’s be honest here.Yes.There is a risk that you may lose one or both the earbuds especially if you are a carefree person. The earbuds do come in cases to protect them whenever they are not in use. But they definitely lose points in terms of portability as carrying the case around is not exactly comfortable. You may misplace them or lose them altogether if you carry them around without the case

High price: Not affordable for many, but justified with the features.
The price of wireless earbuds is comparable to some of the high-end Bluetooth speakers. Why do they cost so much compared to your average wired earphones? While the wired earphones normally have two speakers,a connection wire,a 3.5 mm jack,the wireless earbuds like the Apple Airpods have an design that accommodates a battery,a microphone in each earbud,water protection reinforcements,tiny processors engineered to decode standard Bluetooth codes,a design that at the same time ensures its small size but also enables it to include amazing features like fast charging. The list can go on. These tiny earbuds are not so tiny when you understand the processes happening inside them. Are they affordable for everyone? Certainly not. But with such magnificent features embodied in such small devices, the hike in the price is justified

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy S21, the next flagship series from the South Korean tech major, is expected to launch in January next year, and the phones could go on sale by the end of the month. In the latest leak, tipster Jon Prosser has revealed the launch, sale, and pre-order dates of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 phones on Twitter. The Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra launch will take place on January 14, 2021 and pre-orders will start on the same day. The tipster also claims that the devices will go on sale on January 29.

Samsung’s flagship lineup sees the S series launch in the first half of the year, while the Note series comes in the second half. While some reports are claiming the brand will launch the phones with Samsung Galaxy S30 name label, others are saying Galaxy S21 will be the official name.

Prosser in his tweet also revealed the colour variants of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. These are black, white, grey, silver, violet, and pink. While the features of the devices are yet to be revealed, several leaks have already suggested what could be the possible specifications of the new phones. Here’s everything we know so far.

Samsung Galaxy S21 price (expected)

The Samsung Galaxy S21 price is expected to start from $999, which is around Rs 74,640 in India. The Galaxy S21 Plus could cost $1,199 (around Rs 89,580), whereas the Galaxy S21 Ultra $1,399 (approximately Rs 104,529).

Samsung Galaxy S21 series: Specifications

As per the leaks, the Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30 phones will sport a punch-hole display design. The cutout will be placed on the upper right side of the display. The handsets will also have slim bezels. The design of the phones will be almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

The leaked renders showed that the volume rockers and power button will be located on the right edge. The standard version is expected to come with a compact 6.2-inch flat display. The screen of the Galaxy S21 Ultra could measure between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. It is expected to come with a slightly curved display and could include support for the S Pen, which would be a first in the S series. However, the device might lack any slot for the brand’s signature stylus.

The phones will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor in some markets. Samsung is expected to announce its own Exynos 1080 processor on November 12. This chip is based on the 5nm process. But this is not going to power the S21 series, according to a report on Sam Mobile. The devices will run the Exynos 2100 chipset, depending on the region.

The most premium version in the series is rumoured to pack a 108-megapixel primary camera and a 40-megapixel snapper for selfies. The Galaxy S21 series could also see the introduction of a new under-display selfie camera. Again, Samsung could limit this new technology to the most premium flagship in the series, which would be the S21 Ultra.

On the software side, the Galaxy S21 will ship with One UI 3.0, which will be based on Android 11. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series was recently spotted on 3C certification. The site hinted that the standard version will offer a 4,000mAh battery, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S21+ is tipped to feature a 4,660mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will reportedly have a 5,000mAh battery. All three phones are expected to ship with a 25W fast charger.

Run by Facebook one of the four Big Tech companies, its features complement those of its sister platforms like Instagram and Facebook. So if any feature exists on one of these platforms, expect it to show up on all eventually. For instance Stories. By imitating the Snapchat model of quick short-lived stories, Instagram mastered it, further emulating it on Facebook and WhatsApp.

In a big to keep the app updated and fresh, new features are introduced every once in awhile. Take a look at what to expect!

WhatsApp regularly updates the app with new features. It also tests unreleased features on its beta app for Android and iPhone. Recently, WhatsApp has been focusing on privacy and control of spam on the platform. It has rolled out features to help curb these issues on WhatsApp.

In terms of UI change, the app will soon roll our dark mode on Android and iPhone. WhatsApp dark mode is expected to arrive with iOS 13 and Android Q update. While we wait for that, there are other features available now on WhatsApp. If you’re a frequent WhatsApp user, these are some features you can use right now. WhatsApp has confirmed its new exciting disappearing messages feature which, once enabled, will make new messages sent in individual or group chats disappear after seven days.

As per the information provided on the support page, enabling the settings will not affect the messages previously sent or received in chat. While the users can themselves turn disappearing messages on and off for individual chats, in a group chat, only the admins will get to use the feature. With this, if a user does not open WhatsApp in the seven-day period, the message will disappear, but its preview might still be displayed in notifications until the App is opened. The feature, as per the App, will not work if the disappearing message is forwarded, and in case the user creates a backup, however, when the user restores from a backup.

As per the settings for media download, if auto-download is turned on the receiving phone the images, videos will be automatically saved on the device. There, however, is no option of customizing the time frame after which the messages will be deleted.

WhatsApp is hard at work making its hugely-popular app even better. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the launch of disappearing messages which, as the name suggests, makes text messages self-destruct after a week, coupled with the introduction of a new storage setting designed to allow users to quickly find and remove content filling up their precious memory.

And now, it seems WhatsApp is working on two more updates – one aimed at Android users, and another designed for those with an iPhone.

The first change that’s coming to Android looks set to allow users of this Google-powered operating system to access more exciting wallpapers than what’s currently available.

As spotted by the team at WABetainfo it appears that there will be a total of 32 bright wallpapers and another 29 designed for dark mode. It seems you’ll even be able to set unique background patterns for different chats and adjust exactly how they look to suit your tastes.

This upgrade is currently in the beta phase of testing but a launch could come soon.
