The world moves on... Video capture, 950 XL vs P30 pro

Added: 21.05.2019 7:37 | 0 views | 0 comments

Although I regularly pitch the PureView over-sampled Lumia 950 XL stills up against the best of 2018 and 2019, video capture is a whole other area. The Snapdragon 810 chipset in my 950 XL just can't compete in terms of real time noise reduction and software stabilisation with the Snapdragon 855 (and Kirin 950 here), which - at 1080p here, at least - have oodles of headroom in the processing department - and it shows when testing modern Android flagships. Even more so the Lumia 1020-inspired Huawei P30 Pro, which also throws a genuine 5x 'periscope' telephoto into the mix.

Mini-review: 3-in-one 'Bear' Data/charge adapter

We've all been there. Windows 10 Mobile or Android users but our partner or offspring have gone over to the Dark Side, i.e they're using iPhones. And, out and about, one of these normobs runs their phone dangerously low on power and it's only you (of course) who has brought along a k. Typically, they'd then be out of luck because I'll bet that neither they nor you have a spare Lightning cable in your pocket. Except that with this trivially cheap accessory they (and you) are in luck.

Why is this relevant? Because it brings the ability to use the full screen, turning the Gemini into a more convincing micro-laptop. Or, if you will, a present day Communicator.


Digital Foundry Finds Mortal Kombat 11 Also Using Switch's 'Boost Mode'

You win.
It seems that NetherRealm is one of the first third-party studios to have taken advantage of Switch's 'boost mode', according to our friends over at . The behind-the-scenes mode, which released with the console's latest firmware update, enables developers to take advantage of increased clock speeds to improve game performance in several ways.
At launch Nintendo limited the console's docked CPU speed to 1020MHz and the GPU to 768MHz. These figures were both substantially below the performance found in Nvidia Shield Android TV, which uses the same Tegra X1 processor as the Switch. In handheld mode, however, the GPU was further slashed to 40-50% of that figure (between 307.2 and 384MHz). While this conservative clock speed helps prevent your Switch from cooking itself into a mess of melted plastic and electronics, it presents developers with some very stringent limitations.
