Moviru Fri, 10 Jan 2020 16:39:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Iphone XS Max vs Samsung S9 Plus Guide To Help you Tue, 25 Dec 2018 18:25:35 +0000
In the phone technology space, there are two kinds of people; iOS and android users. Each group
swears by their choice. Where do you lie? We put the Iphone XS Max against the Samsung S9 Plus head to head to help you decide which one to get. Comparison criteria is exclusively on the screen, camera and performance.

The Display

The Iphone XS Max comes in a 6.5″ amoled display with a resolution of 2688 x 1242 with 458 PPI
whereas the Samsung S9 Plus has a 6.2″ super amoled display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 and 529 PPI. Both have the same water resistant rating of IP68. They’re HDR enabled meaning you’ll be able to capture great detail.
While the Iphone XS Max has a larger screen, it also has a notch which can bite into the video while you’re watching something. While both are stunning, it should also be noted that Apple contracted Samsung to make displays for them and judging by these specifications, it is clear who got the short end of the stick!


There is few and far between when it comes to their cameras. Both have a dual camera system on the rear of 12 MP for both the primary wide-angle and telephoto secondary cameras. The only
differential is that the S9 Plus has a dual aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4 while the Iphone XS Max has a single aperture of f/1.7.
The images in the Samsung S9 Plus are sharper and more saturated but the Iphone XS Max counters this with better color accuracy. The secondary telephoto cameras support 2X optical zoom and are essential for portrait photos as they keep your face in sharp focus. Finally, they both can record 1080p and 4k video at 30/60 fps but the S9 Plus has a super slow motion feature where it can record at 960 fps as opposed to Iphone’s 240 fps.


The Iphone has a powerful A12 bionic processor with 4GB RAM and can be acquired with 64GB of storage for the base model. There are also 256 and 512GB model options. The S9 Plus sports a Snapdragon 845 CPU with 6GB RAM and has 64GB of internal storage for the base model as well.
Other model options come in 128 and 256GB. The differential is that the S9 Plus has a micro sd slot where you can expand your memory by 512GB. In the benchmarking department, the Iphone XS Max knocks it out of the park. Its A12 chip produces unrivaled power. It trounces the S9 Plus in the single core and multi core scores.
The Iphone XS Max would therefore be the preferred device for heavy-duty apps and highly graphic intensive games as they run with zero stutter.
While the Iphone XS Max has a 3174mAh as opposed to S9’s 3500mAh, the former can last 30-60 minutes in a controlled environment. The only setback is that you will have to fork out some additional cash for wired fast charging in contrast to the Samsung which comes out of the box.
Both offer wireless charging using the same standard. When it comes to choosing a phone, it really boils down to preferences. If you’re looking for a device that can handle graphic intensive games, you should opt for the Iphone XS Max. If on the other hand you want a customizable device that’s relatively cheaper you should go for the Samsung S9 Pl

Apple to tutor women in tech for the aim of industry diversification Mon, 17 Dec 2018 10:29:47 +0000 In order to solve the issue of less number of women executives in the tech industries, Apple is going to launch a new program. The women entrepreneurs and programmers are going to attend a two-week training program at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.


These lessons will be conducted once every three months starting in January. For each session, Apple has planned to accept twenty app makers developed by women. The app creator is expected to be one female programmer in the categories to get selected.



Apple itself will take care of all the expenses incurred during the travel for the three persons belonging to each of the companies. In doing this Apple like the other tech companies are reducing its number of men workers in programming jobs with the high payment. Previously, in apple, only 3 per cent of the women were doing the technology jobs. That was only a little development from 20 per cent in the year 2014.

Therefore the aim behind this new idea is to help the interested women keep themselves immersed in the field they are working. This was shared by Esther Hare the senior director of world marketing developer.

According to Lorrain Hariton CEO of the catalyst this camp for tutoring women is a ‘Great step forward’. She belongs to the group who struggle for the equal rights for women. She says that there are a lot of talented women who can do well in the field of technology. She is hopeful that this will ‘change the tone for the entire industry’.

The new idea to increase women workforce

It is unclear how effective this new idea will be. Google has also provided the needed coaching for the girls aiming for the jobs in technology, however, that program has not improved the diversification of the workforce. Women were offered 25 per cent of Google’s technology works in the year 2017.

Apple and other tech giants say that one of the reasons for not having many women in their companies is because women are traditionally not trained in the areas of mathematics and science which are important for the programs.


To handle the jobs in these tech giants one needs to be proficient in all the areas then only they will be able to benefit the company they are working for. But the critics of the industries have questioned the company’s motives of being partial to men and discriminating against the women.

The industries are mostly dominated by men and this has been the case for many decades, therefore, this initiative of Apple is expected to increase the women employees in the same payroll jobs as men.

This will result to diversify the industry. This initiative of Apple is going to be started next year and the training sessions will begin immediately.

Apple has not revealed about the expenses it is going to spend on this project. Though including the travel expenses the company is said to get the help of its employees to manage the sessions.

Google’s Call Screen Feature to be seen in the pixel smartphones Sat, 15 Dec 2018 11:16:34 +0000 The Google call screen is the most impressive extra feature added to the version of pixel 3 and it is going to become the best release this year with the new rollout feature. The call screen that is built in the app of the pixel 3 utilises the Google assistant to take the calls.

It can be triggered by just a tap on the option ‘screen call’ which will be visible whenever a person is calling. The call screen is made active and the Google assistant reports to the caller the purpose of the call.

The users can see the live transcription of what the caller says during the phone call. The quality of the transcription may change from call to call and will depend on it. This will give the users a clear idea about the nature of the call whether it can be answered or not. If it is an important call they will take and if it is a fake call they will know it beforehand. They will be able to block the calls that are spam through this feature.

Another better aspect of this feature is that Google has decided to roll out a brand new option for the call screen for transcription. The transcripts will vanish from the screen once the call is over but with the help of this new feature the call receivers can save and store it and use them in the future for references.

To get hold of these saved transcripts in the phone the users must go to the file called as the ‘Recent’. The call details will be listed there and they can choose the one they want to see. It will be present in the option the ‘call details’. In this location, the users will be able to see the option called as the transcripts.

The rollout of the feature

The call transcripts are not an unexpected addition as the document that supports it has some details about it. The company Google has already mentioned that the transcripts of call screen will be made known before the ending of the year and it is known that the owners of the pixel are getting the needed access to release this on time.

It is not very clear how the pixel call screen transcripts will be realised widely, however, the owners of the pixel will surely check for the feature. They will check through the ‘screen call options’ where the transcripts can be retrieved.

The major purpose behind the call screen transcripts is to put an end to the users from the calls that waste time. The storing of the transcripts will prove beneficial and will make it simple for the users to refer and be aware in the future for such calls.
