Galaxy S8 Review : The Redesigned Samsung smartphone

08:17:00
Galaxy S8 Review
Samsung is back !!

With their new and redesigned Galaxy Smartphone S8 and S8+,

Yes! you've heard me right! Now Samsung Decided to call their smartphone s8 plus instead of edge


After teasing it for a couple of months Samsung has finally Announced their new smartphone after the tragedy of their previous launch of The Note 7 ...

In this Article, I'm going to talk about the New Features of this new smartphone and some special features that might interest you!

// Stick around till the end because I'll be comparing the features of The Galaxy s8 with The iPhone 7  //

Before we begin here is a screenshot of the specification of the Galaxy s8 from GSMArena.

Galaxy S8 Spec

Finished watching it? Cool !

Let us begin ...

// The images are Taken from Marques Brownlee's youtube video //

1) Galaxy s8 Display & Design:


Galaxy S8 Review : display
First of All, Let us talk about the Design of the New Galaxy s8. As I mentioned before, Samsung Launched their new flagship phone with a touch of New Design! Samsung decided to loose all the bezels of the phone and increase the Display because bezels are so last year!

The Samsung Galaxy s8 is rocking a 5.8inch 2960 x 1440  OLED display and the s8+  is rocking a  6.2 inch OLED Display with the same resolution as the s8. That means a really sharp display. Both the Samsung s8 and s8+ has a curved display at the side which they are now calling the Infinity Display.

The Aspect ratio is 18:9 

 Oh yes, I almost forgot!

Samsung also decided to lose the home button as they have increased the Display size. Don't worry, The home button is embedded inside the screen now.

2) Security:

Galaxy S8 Review : Secrity

 As the Home button is gone, the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back beside the camera! It looks easy to access but for the s8+ users, it might be a little tough to get your finger there while holding your phone straight. And it is possible that you'll get your fingerprint on the camera

 

If you don't wish to unlock your phone using fingers can, you can try two new features which are the iris and the face Scanning. 
Galaxy S8 Review : Secrity


The incredible thing is that the  Face scanning feature is really fast. For example, if you look at your front camera and with a blink of an eye your phone unlocks itself!






2) Hardware:

Galaxy S8 Review : Hardware 
The Samsung Galaxy 8 and 8+ are running on Android 7.0 Nougat with 4GB Ram and 64GB of space with a memory slot expandable up to 256GB
The Navigation bar at the bottom is customizable and got a fresh new look to it.
 The galaxy s8 has 3000MAh battery power and the s8 + has 500more ...

3) Bixby:

Galaxy S8 Review : Bixby
Meet Bixby!

Samsung's New Personal Assistant which they gave a cool name, unlike Google's Assistant! It was high time Samsung got their own personal assistant because it kinda became mandatory to have one in order to push a phone to the top of the market!
They introduced Bixby with this Moto "whatever you can do with touch, you can do with voice." 

You can launch Bixby by a trigger word or By pressing the trigger button located at the left of the phone. Or pressing it will launch the Bixby Home screen with your agenda showing latest events, reminders and so on.

To have a chat with Bixby simply just hold the action/trigger button. Bixby can do a lot of things like adjusting brightness, taking selfies and even scan a photo to find information about it!



4) Camera:


Galaxy S8 Review : Camera

There's actually nothing special about the s8's camera. The rear camera is 12mp and the front camera is 8mp just like the s7. If you wish to see the camera's power here's a photo captured by the s8 by GSMARENA.

 

beside the Size and Battery, there aren't that much difference between the Galaxy s8 and s8+

 

There are some new Accessories That came with this new phone, and I'm going to write about it later on ...

 

// Features That the Samsung Galaxy s8 has but the iPhone7 Doesn't ~  

Galaxy S8 Review

 

  • The s8 has a Quad HD Supported Display whereas, the iPhone still has the 1080p supported display.

  • Samsung has introduced new ways to unlock your phone which are Irish Scanning, Facial Scanning whereas the iPhone is still stuck with the Finger scanning feature..

  • The Samsung s8 comes with USB type c fast charging feature whereas the iPhone has the lightning cable feature .

  • The Samsung smartphone has 64GB memory but can be expanded to 256GB storage .

  • You can change the default browser of  Samsung's smartphone whereas your stuck with safari with iPhone.










Price Range:

The Samsung s8 will be charged at $720 and the s8+ will start at $840 ...

Samsung doesn't like to waste any time so the s8 will be available in the market from the month of April 

Not sure about you, but I am super excited for Samsung's bew device because it has been tested to avoid unfortunate incidents like before.

How to break the ice and give an awesome presentation

10:06:00






Tell me, 

What makes a presentation rememberable

Telling Funny jokes? Telling interesting stories and so on right?

Well these are known as Icebreakers
Breaking the ice or mostly known as Icebreakers are one of the most effective ways you can kick off a meeting or presentation.
If you can plan and execute it well, you can have a presentation that your audience will remember for a long time. If you already applied this on your presentation you know how effective it is!
And if you haven’t used it already … No Problem because today I’m going to show you some icebreakers that you can apply to your next presentation so that you can avoid "death by powerpoint".

death by powerpoint



But before we get into the boring part of the post here’s an infographic I made for this blog post that describes everything I’m about to tell you in pictures

Icebreakers infographic

For Large / Small audience

1) Make a joke on yourself
Try to avoid making really lame and generalized jokes that don’t have to do with you. Definitely, avoid jokes that might offend someone as well!
You don’t want to make a joke at the outflow of anyone in the audience or a joke at the outflow of the company but the joke at the outflow of yourself tends to work really well because you’re pointing at yourself so people can just laugh along with that.
For example …
“Before coming here tonight I was discussing my Friend bout this presentation and he told me that Be yourself, Don’t be boring and please don’t throw up in fear.’”
Don’t expect full blown laughter with any of these jokes, but it’s just kind of a teaser, just kind of warms it up.

2) Start with a question
Start your presentation with a question. It can be Raise your Hand type question or any type of question. Starting with a Funny / Interesting question is really good way to get your audience’s attention. The question can be like:
Can anyone here tell me the Current Population of the world? Or how many of you use facebook? Or is there anyone here that doesn’t eat junk food?
You can adjust your presentation slide with this question too
Can anyone tell me the current population Of Dhaka city?


Icebreakers Start with a question


Did you know the biggest fear of all human is Public speaking?

3) Start or End with quote
You can start or end with a good quote from any author or any famous person.  Good quote can catch the attention of the audience and they’ll be more interested in what you want to tell them 


http://www.slideshare.net/imtiazx1/difference-between-mass-personal-communication-66871219

Icebreakers Start or End with quote


4) Make or ask the audience to do something
Make or ask your audience to do a simple task. It can be asking them to stand up / Do some exercise or Doing something fun.  This will keep your audience more engaged. Remember to give an applause to the audience for doing it.
Watch this video to get a better idea on what I’m talking about 



5) Tell a Story

In the middle of your presentation tell your audience short and simple story that relates to your presentation topic. Start story but don’t finish it … It will keep your audience more engaged and will make them eager to know what happened next?
Please don’t tell a Boring story
Most of the people are moved by Stories
Watch this video to get a better idea of what I’m talking about 




6) Introduce yourself:
Introducing yourself is important but don’t just introduce yourself, introduce yourself in such way that they will remember you …
For example: “Hello Everyone / Good morning everyone, my name is Kyle. I’m a student from the BBA faculty. Today our topic is …..”
Please don’t start like this! Instead, try this:
“Hi/Hello Everyone! My name is Kyle, So today I’m going to talk about how we can improve our Presentation in 5 Different ways “

 
Icebreakers Introduce yourself:

 

7) Break a news

While speaking about your topic tell your audience news or Information that they might not know! This will keep your audience thinking and it keeps them engaged


Icebreakers Break a news

8) Start with Fun Slide
If you’re going to give a presentation you might also need to use PowerPoint or Prezi to display slides. Make funny and interesting slides that will get the attention of your audience


Icebreakers Start with Fun Slide


http://www.slideshare.net/imtiazx1/money-monster-movie-analysis-what-we-learned-from-this-movie

9) Practice Practice & Practice!

The most important step of all! You can still fail after following everything I just said if you do not practice … 1 week before your presentation practice at least 10minutes every day for a perfect speech! Even popular public speakers needed practice before their huge speech.
Did you know: Steve Jobs rehearsed for 2 days before his apple presentation!

10 ) Watch Ted Talks

 If you wish to be a great public speaker but if you don’t know about TED, then my friend start watching. TED is a nonprofit Organization created in order to spread ideas, usually in the form of short and powerful talks by Public speakers from around the world!  They have over 2300+ talks that you can watch while sitting in your home relaxing. You can visit the Official Website to listen to their talks Free in cost.

Icebreakers Watch Ted Talks

 

Few tip’s to follow:

  • When you are presenting if you need to put a black screen on the screen just press b on your keyboard 
  •   If you wish to jump to a particular page, instead of minimizing your slide just type the number of the slide you wish to view and press enter

If you follow this Icebreaker Steps Hopefully you will have a Good Presentation that your audience and your teacher will love and you’ll be able to ace the Presentation.


Thanks for reading …

Google Photoscan : Protect your Memory(photo's) with just 1 click

04:52:00
Google Photoscan - learn with imtiaz
=

How did we save photo's when we were just a little boy ?
Our parent captured it using a polaroid camera or a Normal camera right ? and how did they save it ? By Printing it and saving it inside a Photo Album ! Most of the time the photo's still get lost and it's sad when a dearest memory from the childhood gets lost like that !

There was no Google Drive or any fancy Online Cloud storage back then to save this photo's / But now we have them ! But how will we save our photos in the cloud storages ?

By Capturing the photos wth our camera or Smartphone ?

Hell no ! That's a bad idea . So how will we solve this problem ?

Well, google thought about that , and  came up with a brilliant app that lets you store your photos  by scanning it and saving it to Google Photos !

The Brilliant app is Known as "PhotoScan"

Love Android ? You will Love this : Google Pixel Review

It Lets you scan your photo with your Back Camera and Saves it as a full Photograph !

Wait Didn't You just said Capturing an old photograph Print using a Smartphone is a Bad idea !

Most of the time when you capture a photograph Print using your smartphone you are most likely to capture the surroundings of the paper also !

But with PhotoScan that's not going to happen !

Photoscan only captures your Photo and  It cuts of the surroundings 

After you Capture a Photograph Print using Photoscan it will tell you to scan 4 circles in the photo ...

After scanning all the 4 circles it will combine all 4 sides of the photo to 1

here's a Photo I Scanned and Saved Using PhotoScan
