Pixel 3a is our 2019 smartphone

2019 is not a big year for smartphones. In many ways, our cellphones are more similar than before, and the things that distinguish them are less important than before. But that doesn’t mean that there are no new and important phones for the Android Police editorial team.

That does not mean that we all agree on which phone. In a poll among seven Android Police editors (plus Artem), the race was very close. The winning cellphone received four votes from three runners-up, and a strong argument was made for both. Most teams agree: Both phones have clear advantages, and both can be considered winners. But we have given the voice and voice clear: Pixel 3a is a smartphone in 2019 by Android Police.

Before we discuss the question of why we chose Pixel 3a, we must give you a glimpse of our criteria. This year’s Android Police Smartphone isn’t just the best phone of the year. This will make it impossible to recognize the fundamental aspects of consumer products; that is what it costs. If we choose a phone-based solely on speed, performance, and features, we will ignore the entire class of major smartphones that seek to innovate at a far higher limit for many people than the latest technology: value. Since many automotive magazines will not only select only the smallest and fastest “best cars” since their performance and quality far exceed those of other vehicles, even if we have higher prices, we do not want to choose our phones only this year limited to luxury smartphones.

Why we chose Pixel 3a and 3a XL

As strong as we’ve been on the latest Google phones, Pixel 4 and 4 XL, none of us can blame Pixel 3a and 3a XL in a meaningful way. We can cite a lack of IP ratings for water and dust resistance or wireless charging, but both are so rare on cellphones at this price that we can’t seriously consider them.

Of course, phones with better chipsets, more RAM, and cameras can be bought at a lower price (although this generally doesn’t happen in the US). This phone is faster, plays games that cannot be Pixel 3a has a bigger screen, is better, and lasts longer with additional costs. All of these things are worth considering, and that means that Pixel 3a might not be a very tempting phone for everyone.

However, when we see what we highly recommend to friends, relatives, and acquaintances who only want a decent smartphone, Pixel 3a is almost always the answer. And you have noticed that there are no other affordable Android phones that we have thoroughly recommended in recent years – such phones practically still have severe limitations. To articulate why Pixel 3a is so easy to choose is not a challenge: Google has put all the best of “premium” pixels – software, updates, and cameras – into cheaper (far) mobile phones.

It’s tempting to get involved in discussions about the Biggest, Worst, and Best at the age of $ 1,000. This is a narrative that encourages debate about technology, and often consumer goods in general. And despite all the new and exciting features used by companies like Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, and even Google itself, it might be easy to overemphasize the true meaning of these things and their impact on people. And honestly, it’s hard to imagine the effect increasing to $ 600.

As soon as the first pixels appeared on the market in 2016, there was a consistent and ongoing demand for cheaper and less ambitious mobile versions. It took until 2019 for Google to send, but I am sure that Google has sent it.

Westworld season three returns on March 15

In summary: HBO launched its latest advance on YouTube over the weekend. While the clip doesn’t show any live action like previous offers did, it does provide what could be a possible plot pattern … or maybe it’s just an “announcement” made for Westworld and that’s just one of many scenarios including guests can choose. With Westworld, it’s difficult to say it anyway.
The third season of HBO Westworld will premiere on March 15, 2020, revealing a new twist.

Westworld’s first season was presented in late 2016 with excellent reviews. The long-awaited second season, however, has lost its mark and has been criticized for being … well, a disjointed disaster.

There is great hope for season 3, as it appears to represent life outside the park and attracts some strong hitters, including Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.

Unlike Netflix, HBO has mainly adhered to the old guard’s way of launching new episodes of a show: going out on television, pretty much. This means that every new episode will be released every week at a set time and you will have to tune in or record it on the DVR instead of being able to spend the whole season at once.

However, if the third season manages to recover some of the magic provided by the first, it will be worth it.

GameCube Joy-Cons Now Exist Thanks to Modder

Building a better mouse trap: one thing I don’t like about Nintendo Switch is JoyCons. I find them extremely uncomfortable to use connected to the console. They are better off using disconnected, but still a little difficult to manage. If someone invented a more comfortable set of JoyCons …

A modder who takes over from Shank has created a set of JoyCons for Nintendo Switch that look and feel like a GameCube controller.

He used the internal circuits of a true JoyCons set, so his mod has all the functionality of the Nintendo Switch controllers, except the IR sensor. Other than that, they work as expected. They also have small buttons on the connector side for sideways use in two player games.

Shank also created a central section to join them. This connector essentially makes it a GameCube WaveBird controller that works with the Nintendo Switch.

The chassis was created with a first WaveBird gamepad, which is Nintendo’s GameCube wireless controller. It may be obvious that Frankensteining with the two controllers was not as simple as emptying WaveBird, cutting it in half, hitting the JoyCon plates and gluing the connector parts.

Shank had to modify the interior of the controller with 3D printed parts in order to assemble the JoyCon components. There were also many other obstacles he had to overcome, including the conversion of the analog WaveBird buttons to digital ones. The entire project took several months to complete.

Shank has no plans to sell his mod because it was very difficult to do.

“These JoyCons are not for sale,” he said. “It was difficult to do them and I won’t do another set.”

However, he said he would eventually release the CAD files for those who wanted to create their own set, but he advised: “This is not a beginner’s project.” Shank is an expert modder and there have been many frustrating hours. assembly, testing, disassembly, desoldering, welding and repetition.

Of course, since you’ve already pioneered and stumbled across all obstacles, it should be easier to repeat the process. If you are smart in this way, it may be worth the effort. Shank says that WaveBird controllers are much more comfortable to use than standard JoyCon and look similar. Above all, they do not suffer from JoyCon’s drift.
