The adamant league is 3000+ trophies and it resets weekly, making people have the tendency to drop from adamant league. There are many types of game modes such as team strike and team fight.

August Smart Lock(2017)

Image result for August Smart Lock (2017)

(Picture of the model of the August Smart Lock(2017))

Comes with a door-sense sensor and works with apps like Google Home for $129. It doesn’t work with some other apps like Apple and is a bit noisy at times though. The lock can be installed in several minutes and uses DoorSense to give the user information constantly whether the door is closed or opened, when the user is not at home.

This August as compared to the August Pro, has a more traditional design. It is around thrice as large and wider than the August Pro. It uses more technology and lesser equipment with a latch that can be turned to unlock it. But the design looks a bit less plain than the August Pro. But when using apps to control the lock, it tends to get noisier.

(How the August Smart Lock(2017) looks when it is manually locked)

I still want to reiterate about the DoorSense. It is a very good function to inform the user whether the door is locked so that important valuables does not get lost. When tested, it gave clear condition of the door. But the bad thing is that this August product is not compatible with some apps like Apple anymore. If you are an iPhone user and you wish to use a lock like this, you can consider using other products of August like the August Pro. Voice commands can be used to command the app through the phone.

You can make the lock connect to WiFi also by topping an additional $79 to allow the lock to have this function. So the total cost will be $199.

I think that this lock is a very good lock with good features like DoorSense that makes it appealing to buyers. So I think people that wants a safe lock that will keep your valuables in place, this will be the right choice for you.

iPhone X

The iPhone X, which was released a month ago, is a better version of iPhone 8.  It has a dual camera and it now has face ID function like Samsung S8.  And the picture quality of iPhone X is very good. When you see your own selfie, you feel like you are much younger. And iPhone 8’s battery have been tested on 22 December 2017. Like Samsung S8, iPhone X’s face ID function is making customers having quite a hard time unlocking the phone. There is also an improvement in adjusting the apps and swiping the phone. Also, iPhone X also has wireless charging.

(How it looks like when it is being wirelessly charged.)

Instead of swiping down the functions like torchlight from the bottom, now iPhone X functions are swiped down from the top. This product changed people’s impression of apple as this was the only phone that does not have the home button anymore in apple products. But as always, iPhone is expensive. Converted into Singapore dollars, it is $999 for one. Although iPhone X looks big, but the black sides of the phone are actually not the part of the display screen of the phone. It is the front camera and sensors. iPhone X’s resolution is better than all the other apple phones. The color of the iPhone X is amazing that it can even blend in the dark. iPhone X’s battery life is around 11.45 hours. Portrait mode is a mode that allows you to take a very clear picture of yourself but in exchange for your background not being as clear. Normally, face ID requires your eyes to unlock it, but you can deactivate it by going to settings. That is very special, which other phones are unlikely to be able to do it. All this features makes this phone that expensive.

You will have to buy a case to protect the iPhone as it is fragile and just one drop is enough to break it. I think this phone is something who wants to buy a phone that can last very long. Repairs for iPhone are very expensive so I think buying a case would be safe.

Rules of Survival

Rules of Survival is a battle royale type of game in which you are sent into a world with other players. You all are driven by an aeroplane and the player must decide where to alight anywhere on the map. Once you eject the plane, you freefall down then until halfway you parachute down. When you eject down there is a joystick for you to control the speed of how fast you want to drop to the ground. Once you reach the ground, you are without weapons, you have to go houses and other places to find guns and equipments. (i.e. Ak-47, 2x Scopes, med kit, helmet, backpack etc.)

And there will be a restricted zone where you can go only. Once you exceed the safe zone, the screen will turn green , signalling that you have exceeded the zone and chipping away at your life points constantly.As more and more people gets killed, the safe zone will also shrink, eventually forcing the remaining survivors to meet each other and kill each other.The last man standing wins the match. As you win a match, you earn points and your rank goes up.

You can play with your friends as there are different kind of game modes. You can play with your friends by inviting him. To prevent your account from being lost and to allow your account to be transferred to another phone, I suggest you bind your account via Facebook, google play accounts or game center. Those who wants to get accessories to mod your character, you can do so by choosing what you want and pay via app store or google play. You can also earn credits to buy accessories by playing matches.

Overall, I think Rules of Survival is a pretty interesting game that tests your skills and luck. I think people who love survival games should try this game.

Temple Run

Temple run is a endless running game.First released in 2011, this game was very popular and attracted many people to download it. Updated versions of this game appeared several years later.They were temple run 2 and temple run 3. There are several characters which you will have to unlock which have special abilities. When you start the game, there will be a few creatures chasing you.If you run without hitting any obstacles in front of you, you will be able to shake them away. There are different obstacles which you will have to jump, slide under, turn left or right to avoid them. As you run , you collect coins. There are 3 kinds of coins. Red, gold, blue. Red coins are worth 2 gold coins while gold coins are worth 1 coin and blue coins are worth 3 gold coins.

Coins can be accumulated to buy power ups or unlock new characters. Swiping up allows you to jump, swiping down allows you to slide under ,swiping left and right allows you to turn to your left and right respectively. Coins can be earned faster through in-app purchases using real money. This game was first released to iOS. then followed by Android, then Windows Phone 8.

I think this game is generally fun. But to make this game easier , the game should have a limit and not be endless.This game should be introduced in more platforms such as computer. But, this game must be updated frequently so that it will not be outdated and get replaced by new games.

DJI Spark

The five colours of the DJI Spark:                                                                      Blue,Green,Red,White,Yellow.

The drone that I will be doing today is the DJI Spark. Its advantage is that it is light, has a very good camera, can sense obstacles and dodge it and has gesture controls. It is suitable for taking good pictures.But the gesture mode can only take pictures and it flies for a very short time.

The app is not very efficient , especially on phones with small screens and frustrates the user. In general, it a good camera in a small flying package.

With a affordable price of $468.49, like a efficient camera , you can get many good functions of this portable camera.At first, DJI Mavic Pro($999) with its features like the compact folding design, it went to the top ranking amongst the drones.But after the appearance of the Spark in may, everyone forgot the rest of the drones and only remembered this one.It has many features like the Mavic such as dual-band GPS and a visual positioning system to let it “float” 30 feet above the ground without falling.

For the Spark, there is a bundle for you to get a set of prop guards, extra props, batteries for only $699. You save $154, so why not get this bundle right?It comes in five colours- blue, green, red ,white ,yellow.

How do you operate it?Simple.

Just power on the blades of the Drone, put it in your hands and your face. facing the camera, tap twice of the power button.The camera scans your face.Simple as that.

I personally think this Drone is great for people who love flying objects, love to take pictures and people who likes cool and trending stuff. Basically, it has a great camera quality in a small package but it cannot hover in the air for long.

Acer Predator XB272

 

 

The Acer Predator XB272 sends a fast 240Hz reload rate and offers a great selection of hardware controls. The 27 inch monitor has quite low resolution and the input connectors are not up to date. This is a great choice of a high-rate frame game. However it is not very ideal for the money spent on this typical kind of monitor.

Acer being competitive, increased the length of the monitor from 25 inch to 27 inch. At $680, it is not the cheapest monitor around, but it is one of the monitors that can refresh very fast. The thing that attracts buyers is of its resolution as if you can put a lorry in the pixels. But other than playing games, its resolution is not very high. You can set the resolution higher when playing games.

Specs:

Turns vertically

Depth of bit: 8

Normal Brightness:400

Pixel Pitch: 0.31mm

Gray Response time: 1 milisec

Black/white respond time: nil

Date of release: April 2017

The display of the monitor is normal, with the controls . The buttons are flat and hard to feel, but it has a joystick that makes it more easy to control the monitor. It serves as up and down keys. It has various options such as options that sets the brightness, reload rate.

Plus the 240Hz reload rate is way better than normal monitors that has reload rate of 144Hz and lousy monitors that has reload rate of 30 Hz.

There are 4 USB ports and 2 installed speakers. But there is only 1 HDMI . So, if you are spending too much money on this , you might consider using this monitor for several years.

There is 1 display port and a Headphone Jack.

So I personally think that the Predator XB272 has a great 240Hz reload rate if you are a gamer and love gaming. Plus you can set the resolution of the computer to make up for the monitor having only 1 HDMI , and of the input connectors.

Geometry Dash

Geometry Dash is a game that requires your hands to be quick and agile. It costs $2.69 for iOS and Android. It ranges in different levels from the easiest to the hardest. It is about a character in a square-like shape that you can change its colour and face as you complete levels.Levels are downloaded and there is a name of the creator to tell you who created the level. The popular levels are always at the top with many comments.Some levels require to switch to different transportation such as spaceships, through portals as shown above in the picture.

People who cannot handle the levels and try a demo of the level through a button named “Practice” before trying the actual level. But the level will not be considered complete through Practice.

Until now there are still a lot of people playing it even it was released long ago. For those who cannot spend money on games, they can try the other two versions of the game such as ‘Geometry Dash World’ and ‘Geometry Dash Meltdown'(shown above in the pictures) for free for a glimpse of the game even on iOS.

The other two versions has almost the same features as the original version of the game , ‘Geometry Dash’ except ‘Geometry Dash Meltdown’ cannot download levels and only has trial levels which are very few. ‘Geometry Dash World’ has almost the same features as ‘Geometry Dash’ except it has lesser levels.

And all the levels in the 3 versions even the trial levels , has its own unique background music to enhance the level and attract music lovers to play.

This game was released by Robtop Games and was produced by Robert Topala. The character reacts by jumping and dropping by tapping and not tapping respectively.

This game contains achievements that are completed through finishing difficult levels , collecting stars etc.

Sometimes , after you complete a level , you can get a secret silver colour key that can unlock a secret vault that contains many attractive treasures as you collect more keys to unlock them.

This game is suitable for people who loves music or gaming , even both.

I think this game is in general very demanding and requires quick reaction.  For people with not that fast reaction, i would recommend them to start from the easiest level. This game is compatible with iOS 8.0 or later, with iPhone, iPad and iPhone touch, requires Android 4.0 and up.

The Origin Evo15-S

 

 

Design Specs and Features:

 

  • Optional 15.6-inch 4K UHD or FHD
  • Intel Core i7-7700HQ Processor
  • Up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060/1070
  • Up to 1x2TB m.2 PCIe and 1×2.5 inch 4TB HDD/SSD
  • Up to 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 RAM
  • Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
  • Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming 360
  • 2xUSB Type-C 3.1, 3xUSB 3.0, 1xUSB 2.0, and a six-in-one push-push card reader
  • Backlit multicolour keyboard and optional custom paint.

Gaming laptops used to be big and bulky, rotund. Then there was when this laptop came in. By referring to Apple’s Macbook Pro Playbook, it made a similar design but not as thick. Now with its “Max-Q initiative”, graphics chipmaker Nvidia has considered such thin laptops should be normal and today’s Origin Pc Evo 15-s is one of the examples.

At just 0.73 inches thick, weighing  4.3 pounds, this  aluminium laptop is almost as narrow and as light as Razer’s latest Blade . Here, you have a choice of a notable more impactful Nvidia GeForce  GTX 1070 graphics chip.

And unlike other Max-Q laptops we showed you- the $2700 Asus Zephyrus. Disclaimer: we spent a short while with this laptop so we do not know its performance or the final quality will be any near close to the rivalry. And, Nvidia’s Max-Q 1070 may not be as strong as the 1070 in a thicker laptop.

The keyboard in this laptop does not really meet my expectation, though, and it’s neat to see an integrated fingerprint sensor in the touchpad. Origin PC says the new Evo15-S is coming ,and should start at around US $1,800 for the GTX 1070 version, or US $1,600 for a GTX 1060.

Plantronics Voyager Legend

Plantronics Voyager Legend

Advantage: Smaller and lighter then other typical headsets. Very clear sounds can be heard from the headset and its design is very innovative and ingenious. It is very smooth so people feels good when they wear it.

Disadvantage: Its large boom mic arm is. Its tip do not form a secure audio zip.

Generally: The microphone is not for people who likes to keep up with the trend but is for people who love talking for its clear music quality and its comfortability.

 

Let’s kick off by talking about its design and its origin. Plantronics has been in the market since the arrival of the Jet Age and popular days of the Apollo space program. This event displays the company’s latest Bluetooth Headset, the $99.99 Voyage headset. It is definitely a famous name but created as a product after the Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus, and the Legend does the unexpected. Improved, it has a better quality, it is smaller, it is easier to wear and its battery life lasts longer. It is still incomparable to minute headsets but if clear sound quality is the main thing you want, then this will be the best headset for you .

This contraption is one of the best headsets created these days. Its well-respected design makes it more bulky than its rivals such as Motorola Elite Silver, Jawbrone Era, or even Plantronic’s own M55. It is beautiful compared to Jedra Supreme. Compared to the Supreme, it has a great feel made from plastic. Although its ear loop is wide , but it provides maneuver in easy touch. The ear loop’s bottom poses a robust power.

I feel that generally this product is very worthwhile the deal and a very good option for buying. It costs only $99.99  so the more you should buy it.
