Galaxy Tab S5e and Tab S4 LTE are finally getting Android 10

Published

on

The talk is true. It seems that Samsung has really turned over a new leaf, at least as far as updates go. It may still not be as fast as its eternal rival Apple, it is no small improvement considering Samsung’s old practices. The company has just started rolling out Android 10 and its own One UI 2.1 to both the 2019 Galaxy Tab S5e and the 2018 Galaxy Tab S4 LTE variant where an older Samsung probably wouldn’t have even bothered updating one or both at all.

Of course, the tablets come with two years of software support, explicitly written in footnotes or otherwise. That has always been the case with phones and tablets for years but the old Samsung would be content pushing out minor security updates at best. Sometimes even just one year after the device launched.

It has been striving to do better, even if Android 10 is almost a year old by now. Then again, its other phones are also only now getting this very same update so we’re not really going to complain that much.

The Galaxy Tab S4 launched with Android 8.0 Oreo while the Galaxy Tab S5e ran with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. While Android 10 brings full dark mode support and full-screen navigation gestures, One UI 2.1 adds Samsung’s own take on squircles and rounded rectangles for its user interface. It also added new Quick Share features, Samsung’s own Digital Wellbeing equivalent, and the June 2020 security patch.

The UK seems to be the first recipients of the Galaxy Tab S5e Android 10 update while the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S4 in France is getting dibs on the same. It might only be a matter of time, perhaps a few weeks for the update to trickled down to everyone.

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
