|The Best Upcoming Smartphones of 2016|
With E5, Xiaomi has a very impressive smartphone, capable of boxer with the most high-end machines, Galaxy S7 head, all at reduced prices. His only real fault remains its limited distribution, it will be difficult to buy a Xiaomi Mi ... Mi 5 of 5 Xiaomi is lightning fast. Want to take a photo? Tap the icon and is immediately ready for action. With 3 GB of RAM, it switches between applications without delay and he will answer without hesitation to gamers. In short, we have a high-end smartphone with high-end performance. On the software side, the Xiaomi runs Android 6.0 MIUI topped the home interface. The latter receives very regular updates to fix bugs and security flaws. As with iOS, MIUI collects all the applications on the home screen instead of a drawer as Android. There are a few hidden options like being able to turn on the flashlight by holding your finger on the home button or to move an application by holding a finger while another is scrolled the screen to the desired page.
Unlike the Galaxy S7 or G5 LG, the Mi 5 is not equipped with a permanent display. But that did not miss it because it just press the home button or the power to turn on instantly. At independence, the smartphone easily takes a whole day and the fast charge system Quick Charge 3.0 Qualcomm regenerates 3,000 mAh battery to 90% in just one hour. In our video playback test loop (airplane mode enabled), the Mi 5 held 14 hours three different tests. This is absolutely correct but still short of the 16 hours of the Galaxy S7. What you should know: This smartphone is now available in China and soon will be in India. -Xiaomi Has no plans to market its phones in the West currently. A launch in the US is planned for late 2017.Cependant, it is possible to control the Mi 5 via third party vendors for an additional charge on the original price. It is located at around 400 euros (with delivery included) for the 32 GB version. But keep in mind that the interface will not be French. Similarly, it is not "fully" 4G, on bands 800 MHz and 2600 MHz used by French operators, it only supports the latter.
We really enjoyed this smartphone is more than up to the competition from Apple, LG and Samsung but much cheaper. If you live in one of two countries where the Mi 5 is sold (China and soon India), you can buy eyes closed. For others, it will go through a third party vendor and accept an English menu. At the destructive violence of DAESH, British archaeologists oppose creation. The Institute of Digital Archeology has resurrect the Arch of Palmyra, an arc of triumph Syrian older than 2000 years and destroyed by the Islamic State last year. In London's Trafalgar Square now stands a scale replica of the Ark 2/3, made of Egyptian marble with 3D modeling. In May 2015, DAESH gets hold of Palmyra, one of the largest archaeological sites in the country. They destroy the Ark and Temple Baalshamin dynamite, and a little later, the temple of Bel. These wonders of antiquity, listed in Unesco heritage, disappear forever, almost.
The Institute of Archeology distributes Digital 3D cameras for volunteers so they take pictures of monuments. Upon learning the news of the destruction of Palmyra, Roger Michel, director of the Institute, dig in the million photos of its database to find pictures of the ark. With these images, the Institute was able to create a highly accurate 3D model of the monument. Then a robotic arm carved a new Ark 5.5 meters in Egyptian marble. It will travel in several countries before finally settling in Palmyra next year, as the site is no longer controlled by DAESH.
Total cost of reproduction: 145,000 dollars. But defying the Islamic State, it's priceless, "behind this database, there is indeed a message for those who think they can erase our common heritage by acts of destruction (...) Our desire live together, to work for the good of humanity, is a positive force that can rebuild all that you destroy. Ultimately, we are stronger because we are building, "wrote Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, a Qatari minister, on the site of the Institute. NASA gives us 5 minutes of sweetness and poetry. The US space agency has recently posted a fascinating video aurora captured 400 kilometers above our beloved Earth from the International Space Station.
This video is all the more spectacular it is filmed in 4K (the lucky people who have a compatible configuration can take full peepers) and directed by Time-lapse, a process of slow speed shooting to accelerate the move to the final rendering. You can even notice the second 33th the international station flies over France and Europe with many clearly visible cities. The version "boosted" the PS4 is still accurate through the US website Giant Bomb. According to sources the "PS4.5" would name NEO and more interesting code, they would have also seized on the technical characteristics of the machine. The performance leap, without being gigantic would still not trivial. Jaguar processor eight-core increase from 1.6 to 2.1 GHz, 8 GB of GDDR5 would have a bandwidth of 218 GB / s (against 176 today) and, last but not least, the graphics chip would 36 processing units, twice more than at present, and would also be quicker to 911 MHz against 800 at present. Enough to give a good facelift to the PS4 and especially make better sized to virtual reality. According to the calculation of Digital Foundry, the GPU will be capable of Developer 2.3 times more FLOPs, probably the arrival of the Polaris architecture that will be incorporated in future AMD cards.
Fear not, however. Sony plans (currently) no exclusive games to PS4 NEO. The firm wants all games are compatible with its consoles. So we would be in a closer location of the PC or the graphics differ depending on the machine configuration. Sony is very clear about this, developers cannot offer "exclusive" features to the future console. The opposite would in any case caused an uproar, even bigger than it already is, with players who have invested in the current console. It remains to define what Sony means exclusive to the extent that better graphics, better definition or resolution (including support for 4K) are exclusive features. Giant Bomb has no information on output or price, but the site ensures that new information will come soon. According to Digital Foundry, prototype development kits are being delivered to some developers, in a console whose design is not final. A second version is expected to arrive in June, always with a provisional design. A briefing on the "Neo" is expected at DevCon developers conference in May Sony and developers can submit code to Sony in August. Clearly, we must not wait for the new console before November at the earliest.
