Podcast Transcript (Automated)

Hey, what’s up? It’s Jerad with state of tech and that is the primary episode of the State of Tech podcast where we take a bit bit deeper dive into some totally different subjects and stuff and simply have extra of a dialogue about our know-how. Uh, over on youtube we put up tech videos, critiques, ideas and tips, movies and stuff like that, making an attempt that will help you get probably the most out of your cellular know-how. Uh, but these movies are typically shorter. And, uh, regardless that I get slightly wordy typically, uh, you recognize, having a conversation about know-how as something that I undoubtedly take pleasure in once I hang around with associates of mine who’re equally as enthusiastic about know-how as I’m, it makes it plenty of enjoyable to only have a dialog and speak about stuff. You recognize, particularly when new units come out, just like the Samsung Galaxy s 10 collection phones that have been just launched yesterday, which we’re going to speak about on this inaugural episode or first ever episode or whatever you need to name it. So let’s leap proper in.

So Samsung launched their galaxy s 10 units, which in fact a lot of people have been excited about because you get to an enormous quantity, like 10 and also you simply anticipate a all the newest and biggest and the most important updates to return out. I know that once I was a, you already know, the S9 was announced, I used to be, you recognize, considering to myself, properly that’s a very good telephone. However yeah, they gotta be holding out on some stuff for the S10. And I feel with the s 10 they’ve brought a stupendous system with loads of updates and things to be excited about. So we’re going to talk about that in this episode and of course we’re going to do some comparisons and simply sort of speak about what else can also be obtainable out there available on the market. So most of us were not stunned when Samsung launched three totally different variations of the telephone.

I imply the iPhone has three totally different variations primarily that have been launched last yr. And so it only is sensible that Samsung would do the same thing. So we’ve got the S10, the S10+ and the S10E. I liken those to the iPhone x s the iPhone x s max or 10 x Max or whatever you need to name it. After which the 10 are, so the three totally different units are all a implausible units. Uh, they all take over a, uh, a serious part of a special worth class. The prices of those units have been going up these final couple of years. Yeah. You no less than these phones have been slowly going up through the years, however just in the last couple of years has actual telephone prices really jumped considerably. And naturally we will all the time thank apple for that. A, if an android platform gadget does a worth hike like that, individuals go crazy over it and get mad and annoyed.

Uh, however it it to be okay when apple leads the best way and then all the different manufacturers comply with go well with. It’s sort of just the best way it has been. So I received most excited in fact concerning the s10+. Uh, the S10 can also be an honest sized telephone with great specs. It’s principally the same telephone as the s10+, primarily simply with a bit bit smaller. I’m somewhat bit smaller type issue. Uh, and I, I consider there really isn’t an entire lot of a difference there. Uh, however what I’m tremendous excited about and the telephone that I truly preordered is that ceramic black telephone. That factor simply seems to be incredible. Yes, I know the worth is foolish on it and it starts out at 512 gigs, which who wants that whenever you also have expandable storage, however hey, it’s just the best way Samsung positioned it.

So I needed to talk somewhat bit about, you recognize, what telephone is true for who and then also sort of examine it towards the other telephones that I feel are the perfect telephones which are out available on the market right now. You understand, LG has been a teasing the launch of their new telephones and LG actually hasn’t had an excellent time within the area in the previous few years. They’ve really simply struggled to, uh, to type of get individuals to purchase in to these units, have theirs. Lg has all the time had great units. I imply, they constructed a number of of the nexus telephones back in the day. Their shows are on many various phones. They’ve obtained some implausible hardware. It’s just they haven’t gotten it together. I assume perhaps their advertising isn’t there. The units are nice. I mean, no complaints there. A Lg just really hasn’t been capable of maintain their very own towards Samsung, a iPhone and in addition with the Google Pixel.

So I’ve been rocking the Google Pixel three XL for a short while, uh, since its launch. And I actually just love that system. Google, since they released the pixel line of these phones simply hasn’t gone flawed. Because the phones have been unbelievable, the prices have been good with the Pixel three XL, I wish it had somewhat bit more ram, however nonetheless, it’s nonetheless an awesome telephone. But Samsung with their galaxy s 10 or their galaxy s line units have all the time packed plenty of horsepower and left you actually not wishing for anything more perhaps than just a little bit extra battery. So with the S10 line this yr, in fact they’ve the three totally different phones. And I needed to speak slightly bit about who that is perhaps good for after which we’ll examine it. Speak about evaluating it somewhat bit more to a special totally different units all together.

So all the s 10 units include that snapdragon eight 55 processor from Qualcomm. A that’s a really highly effective processor. It’s the newest and biggest. Um, all the units include a base storage of 128 gigs. So you realize, whether or not or not you need to put an SD card in it or not likely doesn’t matter today because of that base storage. After which in fact these, most of these phones are expandable all the best way as much as a terabyte of inner storage, which is simply foolish. I imply, I have tried, try to actually onerous to use up a number of area on my telephone and until you’re downloading tons of like four okay films, which are a better decision than your telephone might play again, uh, you realize, nicely anyhow, uh, you’re simply not going to refill that gadget. And I’ve even tried using my android system as a storage system, like an external arduous drive and it’s actually been challenging to even come near getting to use up all that storage.

Nevertheless, I’ve heard some speak that Samsung is making an attempt to get Adobe to do a version of premiere rush cc, I assume they’re not cc, that’s the downloadable version for the PC. However premier rush, they’re making an attempt to get a version of premiere rush for Android, which solely exists on iOS proper now. Now premier rush is a, a an honest little video editor. I mean you may put together some pretty good little videos. Uh, all, I’ll link to only a fast one which I put collectively just to check it out, down within the uh, uh, with the show notes. After which in fact, anything that I mentioned here on the podcast will probably be out there when you go over to state of tech.internet/podcast/one for episode one, uh, you’ll get the newest notes with all the hyperlinks. But premiere rush, I mean in case you’re going to be video modifying on your telephone, that’s if you may begin to use a bit of bit more space for storing.

But a terabyte, I imply my goodness, my laptop computer has a terabyte and I don’t even have it full uh, of of stuff. So nonetheless, a, a terabyte is plenty of area and some of you may want that. So expandable micro SD storage in fact a expandable storage up to 512 gigs. So you possibly can throw 512 gigs in that gadget, which suggests in the event you go together with the base storage of 128 gigs after which go and get a 512 gigabyte a micro SD card, you’re going to have a ton of storage and it’s going to be so much cheaper to go that route as nicely. Nevertheless, my experiences have been that inner storage on the telephone is a lot better than placing a micro SD card in there. There are lots of apps that you could’t transfer over to the micro SD cards. So a number of download, loads of massive video games and lots of films and all that stuff.

A variety of downloadable stuff like films and music and whatnot can simply be saved on that micro SD, however some apps truly don’t permit themselves to be moved over to that micro SD storage. So that you’ll have to think about your utilization and whatnot. If I really feel like in case you are a person who who makes use of bigger APPS, you’re in all probability already aware of this and conscious of the restrictions there. Um, so the dynamic AMOLED, uh, with the scale back blue mild and this factor they’re calling HDR 10 plus vast colour gamut is accessible on all the units. Clearly Samsung is nice at making panels for phones, for laptops, for pretty much something. Samsung really has screens, uh, nailed and their units are all the time lovely. So I can solely think about what these are going to appear to be with that Hdr 10 plus in there in fact suitable with the new quicker Wifi model six, which isn’t necessarily out there on all of our typical Wifi units yet.

Um, identical to, uh, some telephones are going to start out saying that they are suitable with, um, uh, lt and that’s not LTE. It’s like 5E or one thing. I had at&t’s calling it a 5GE or no matter speeds and, and whatever. All these things mean there’s some units which are going to return out with that sort of help. Wifi six is the newest and biggest, you recognize, numerous our computer systems and routers and stuff like that, we’ll say that they help, um, 802.11 a c or in or B or n, are these totally different letters and primarily, um, I feel what they’re doing is they’re simply going with a strong number simply to make it less confusing as a result of the lettering system has all the time been a bit of complicated. And so with Wifi six, um, it’s, it’s going to be a lot quicker.

The bandwidth over a goes to be a lot quicker. For those of you that recreation, you understand, that a whole lot of occasions it’s easier and higher simply to be related by way of an Ethernet cable to your Internet to get better. Uh, just to get better switch charges and all that stuff. A wifi six are imagined to type of repair some of these things and give us better rates so we don’t essentially need to be cabled in, um, in fact that doesn’t essentially matter on a telephone, but in case you’re enjoying some of these more intense games that require quicker connections, um, and, uh, and also you’re, you’re clearly having to play that over wifi as a result of it’s a smartphone and you may’t plug an Ethernet into most smartphones. That wifi six when it turns into obtainable is going to provide you a better experience. In fact, the wireless, uh, you realize, powershare, they’re calling it, you might charge other units by resting them on the S10’s back.

That’s type of neat. Um, in fact the s10 additionally has wireless charging itself. So say for example, my iPhone or my pixel XL, I can put it up towards the back of my S10 and share energy right there. Pretty cool. It’s also all of these are IP 68 water-proof, which suggests they’re decently submerged underwater. Um, this varies. You already know, and I’ll, I’ll speak about this for a quick second, that the Ip 68 water resistance doesn’t imply it’s waterproof. It does imply that it’s splashproof. It signifies that some water can hit these ports and that you simply’ll be okay. And actually it’s up to the manufacturer to offer you what that score means. And meaning like how far can it’s submerged and for a way long these two issues truly aren’t a part of the Ip 68 resistance score. So if one thing says just IP 68 certified, that doesn’t imply that you would be able to truly submerge it underneath water.

The iPhone was IP 68 water-proof and I had a type of flood out on me. And so it, it’s a must to take a look at what the precise producer says. And then on prime of that, you with the ability to show that that’s what happened. These producers will take no duty. So for those who do plan on utilizing your telephone in the in or around water, I extremely advocate getting a alternative plan, uh, on those like, uh, with Samsung they’ve a alternative plan, I feel it’s like $12 or something like that for the system. And uh, and, and that, you already know, is your insurance fast wireless charging wireless charging 2.zero is what these phones are going to have. Wireless charging 2.0 has been out for a long time and wi-fi charging 3.zero has been out for a very long time also. And it’s sort of bizarre that that hasn’t been supported.

three.zero is far quicker. Samsung hasn’t jumped on board with three.0 but that’s okay. I imply wi-fi charging continues to be pretty fast even at version 2.zero so, all the galaxy s10 models also share at the very least two of the same cameras that main, a twin aperture digital camera on the back, which is that f 1.5 or f 2.four 12 megapixel. And then additionally the extremely broad 123 diploma subject of view 16 megapixel digital camera. So, uh, they share that digital camera, however then in fact there’s variations there with the cameras in relation to the front cameras on the, um, the S10 and S10+. After which additionally the truth that there’s three cameras on a few of those. So fascinating. They’re, so with that stated, like what is the difference? Like which telephone do you have to really get a, in terms of the s10 s10+ or s10e.

So I feel that the s10 goes to be actually good for these people who need a flagship telephone, uh, but don’t need to pay over a thousand dollars for it. That s10 is an okay worth. It’s still slightly expensive for my part, but in fact these are unbelievable telephones. It’s the pricing that we’re going to be coping with for some time. So if you would like a telephone that, that isn’t really like large because the s10 plus really is type of an enormous telephone. Uh, bear in mind the s10, um, a 6.1 inch a show that’s that’s pretty good measurement as it’s the s10 plus as the 6.four, so a 6.1 inch displays fairly massive. So, uh, it, that may be sufficient. That’s a quad hd plus a curved OLED display with a 3,800mAh battery, which I feel is certainly greater than sufficient to get you thru the day.

It’s a large enough panel for most of us out there. Nevertheless you’ll need to decide the S10 plus if you would like that greater display and larger battery, that 6.4 inch quad HD plus curved OLED and that four,100 mil amp battery. In order that in fact is the larger one. And then, and then the s10 plus additionally has a couple of those choices for that 12 gigabytes of Ram. That’s something I didn’t mention or speak about but is the truth that these units are coming with either eight or 12 gigabytes of Ram. Now eight gigabytes of Ram is a whole lot of Ram for a smartphone. I imply my Google Pixel, three XL I consider solely has 4 gigabytes and it does okay. And my s nine plus that I had last yr as well as the word nine that I had a I consider had six and eight gigabytes of Ram and that’s simply more than sufficient, 12 gigabytes And here’s why. They might put 12 gigabytes in these bigger storage units. The precise storage being used, being utilized and being out there in your gadget goes to take up extra ram. And that sounds somewhat bizarre and I don’t really need to go into depth on explaining that, but larger storage units like that five 12 gigabyte and that one terabyte are gonna require more ram. If they didn’t put extra ram in those units, you’d primarily be getting much less ram than you must have gotten because just the straightforward reality of getting that a lot storage is utilizing it extra. Properly, that leaves us with the S10e, which is a 5.8 inch full HD plus Oled display notice the shortage of the quad HD. So it’s a little lower decision. Uh, type of like the iPhone 10R, which is what my wife has And I’ll inform you the reality on that. The iPhone 10R is a wonderful telephone and a incredible telephone and a well-priced telephone compared to the others. So don’t assume that you must go full S10 or s 10 plus here. Uh, you’re additionally gonna get a 3,100 milliamp battery together with your s10e, which is smaller. It’s a smaller battery. Uh, take into account that still has that snapdragon eight 55, um, it has less ram. It has six gigabytes of Ram. Um, and uh, you realize, with that system, you also get a base of 128 gigabytes. So at that worth level, which I consider is $749, uh, the s10 is $899, and the S10 plus begins out at $999. So for $750, you’re, you’re getting an amazing telephone. You’re still getting that oled, a full HD, which the complete HD, they’re calling it on the iPhone 10R is nice, regardless that it’s not like a quad HD, like on the bigger phones, um, you recognize, it’s, it’s nonetheless an ideal telephone. So think about it like that. Sort of the same approach with iPhone how they’ve the three totally different units. Samsung has their three totally different units as properly. So really it comes right down to will those things make a distinction for you? And you realize, to be trustworthy, a few of them gained’t make a difference for me. Uh, I’m really simply going with the plus because once I do my evaluations and once I’m, uh, you recognize, speaking about these units, I need to ensure that I’ve the gadget that has all the choices. So it has all of the cameras, it has all the totally different features, just like the s 10 plus has the three cameras on the back that do various things.

And I’m going to speak more about that once I get my system and I begin to assessment it. I’m going to do a, a, a first shot collection, uh, over on ditch auto, which is one other youtube channel that I run, which is extra images based mostly. And I need to speak there about going out and capturing with those cameras, doing various things with them, time lapsing, all of the fun issues that you are able to do with those cameras. Uh, so should you’re keen on that, you’ll need to ensure to go on over to Ditch Auto’s youtube channel, and subscribe. I’ll put a link in the show notes as nicely. Okay, so let’s start to examine this s10 plus towards the flag ships, the highest degree flagships which might be out there, uh, from these different producers. So I have an iPhone 10s Max. That’s type of my day by day driver because I’m utilizing a apple watch right now as nicely.

After which in fact, I have the Google Pixel three XL. Now the 6.4 inch SMOLED with the 3040 by 1440 pixels that we’ve got a on that s 10 plus is intently matched by the iPhone tennis Max, which is a 6.5 inch tremendous retina OLED. So not AMOLED, however OLED panel with 2,688 by 1242 pixels. So there’s differences there. The telephone itself. The display itself that you simply’re getting on the iPhone 10s Max is going to be a bit of bit greater. Um, despite the fact that the size of the particular system are so, so, so shut, and I’ll go over those in a second, however then we’ve got the pixel three XL with it’s super notch on the top. It does have an enormous notch. Uh, but that’s because of those massive cameras that it has on the entrance dealing with cameras, which I’m going to be really to see if the Samsung Galaxy s 10 plus with its dual entrance cameras can compete with the, uh, the pixel three XL.

Nothing competes with the Pixel. Three XL entrance dealing with cameras, they’re unbelievable. Uh, but that 6.three inch, a pixel three XL has what they’re calling flexible OLED, a 2,960 by 1440. A lot, a lot nearer to the dimensions of the show of the, uh, the precise s 10 plus. So the pixels per inch can also be fascinating. The PPI of a, which is the pixel density of, of the screens themselves, the S10 plus and the pixel three has the identical. The iPhone 10s Max is actually lower at 458 and so the other two have 522 so you’re getting those pixels are simply much closer collectively, um, and will produce a better expertise general in picture high quality. So the dimensions of those units are all actually, really shut. The precise dimension in inches for all of those units, uh, is 6.2 inches in peak. So 6.2 inches in peak are the identical for all of those units no matter whether you’re getting a 6.four inch s 10 plus a 6.5 inch XS or 10s Max or a 6.three inch pixel three XL.

Um, where there’s slightly little bit of differentiation is the width of the gadget. The uh, s 10 plus as 2.92 inches. The iPhone is um, three.zero inches in width. After which the same goes for the, um, the pixel three. The thickness can also be barely totally different. The zero.3 inches across the board except the S10 plus is zero.31 inches. So these units are all tremendous near the identical in measurement. Um, it just seems just like the iPhone is supplying you with only a smidge greater of a display because they are, have mounted those audio system differently and type of supplying you with less of a Bezel on the top and the underside of the gadget. Um, the load of the units, the, uh, the Samsung s 10 is coming in at 6.17 ounces, which is greater than a full ounce, less than the iPhone 10s Max and a, and in addition less than the pixel three XL.

The Pixel three XL feels mild. So I’m excited to get an s 10 plus in my arms to really feel just how mild that feels compared to the others. In fact, uh, the working techniques, android 9.0 so that you’re getting the newest android on the s 10 plus. Be mindful though with the Samsung telephones that it takes them fairly a while to roll out new variations, uh, of, of android to their units. The s 9 is just now starting to get, uh, that, those, these forms of updates. Um, and that’s, you recognize, virtually a yr since that telephone came out. So you need to understand that it’s going to be some time earlier than you’re going to see android 10. Uh, in fact the pixel three XL, we’ll get that in all probability this fall, perhaps early fall. It really just relies upon. So the thing that basically stands proud to me is the fact that they put three cameras on the back of the s10.

Now the twin digital camera factor, I perceive that and you understand, I used to be, uh, in fact the pixel three XL doesn’t even have dual cameras that simply has one digital camera on the again that does numerous things rather well. Personally, I used to be actually hoping that Samsung would do some, uh, some, some know-how developments on the subject of the again digital camera. Uh, but they determined to go together with three cameras as a result of why the heck not? It’s sad. It appears simpler I feel to only really put three totally different cameras with three totally different lenses on the back of the telephone and primarily you’ve got type of like an entire lens package in your pocket a whereas there are corporations that promote lens adapters in your phones and whatnot and, and you may swap out those lenses. Samsung saying we’re simply going to throw a bunch of them on the back of your telephone and name it good.

From what I understand, it sounds very easy to modify between those cameras. Um, and so I’ll have an interest to examine that out. But we have now that 16 megapixel extremely extensive angle digital camera, which is a, quite a bit greater than the dimensions the megapixel that comes out of the opposite, the other cameras. Now, the factor about that extremely extensive from what I perceive is the extremely broad does not have auto focus the ultra large and it doesn’t necessarily need auto focus because uh, an extremely extensive picture is going to have such a deep depth of subject that likelihood is the whole lot’s going to be in focus there. Uh, but I, I don’t like the thought of not having auto concentrate on that or any method to truly focus that shot even manually. The Digital camera Lens, uh, that specific one simply has no focusing capability at all. However then we do also have those other 12 megapixel shooters, that vast angle.

After which the Telephoto, uh, cameras on there. Those are extra 12 megapixel like the opposite telephones and just like the earlier version of the digital camera’s on these, uh, s units and, uh, they’re imagined to be re revised and revamped cameras and it’s presupposed to be all good. Uh, so I’m, I’m to examine that out. The place I am really is within the twin entrance cameras on this, a Samsung telephone. In fact, the dual front dealing with cameras on the, uh, on the pixel three have been implausible for doing a portrait mode and simply making nice pictures. Uh, also the low mild performance on the Pixel. Three XL is unbelievable. So I’m really to see what Samsung’s been capable of do there. Uh, so just shifting down, I don’t, I don’t need to go too deep into many more of this stuff. In fact. Um, the battery is large on this telephone.

four,100mAh the place the pixel three has a pixel, three XL has a three,430mAh battery. Um, so, you already know, battery life must be actually great and Samsung’s phones have gotten actually good at managing their, uh, their battery utilization as properly. Um, and not simply consuming up batteries like android use to, to actually do, especially on Samsung phones. Um, and fascinating thing is going to be that in display fingerprint sensor. You understand, I really fell in love with fingerprint sensors on the again of the telephone as a result of they’re straightforward to seek out. Um, not a lot on the Samsung phones, but on the pixel three XL, it’s really easy to seek out that fingerprint scanner and as you’re pulling your telephone out of your pocket, you place your finger proper in that fingerprint scanner. And by the time the telephone is in front of your face and ready to use, all the things is unlocked and able to go.

Uh, whereas with an iPhone you need to anticipate face id to do its entire factor. And with a variety of different telephones that have that fingerprint scanner, like simply down within the very backside of the telephone, you need to maintain the telephone type of weird and get your thumb just there in an effort to unlock it. So the top display, fingerprint sensor, I’m, I’m fascinated by that for positive. Um, hey, they stored the headphone Jack. Most people have been considering Samsung was going to ditch a headphone Jack, however it is there and I’m a somewhat completely happy about that. I don’t actually care so much anymore, however in the truck that I presently drive, I don’t have Bluetooth audio. I’ve a Bluetooth audio gadget and I’ve, I’ve made a video about that gadget that I exploit a in order that it’s straightforward for me to only Bluetooth music straight into my automotive without having to have any further cables plugged into my telephone.

Um, so ensure that to check out that link within the present notes. Um, however the headphone Jack undoubtedly is good, especially when you bounce in a pal’s automotive they usually don’t need to undergo the method of Bluetooth pairing your telephone to their automotive. So it’s nice to have that headphone Jack just as a fail protected. So, you already know, the S10 plus is here, the S10, the S10E, they’re greater priced than previous fashions. Uh, they’re greater spec than earlier fashions. And so I’m to listen to what all of you need to say with regard to this gadget. There are several methods that you would be able to speak with me and we will share our thoughts. In fact there’s the state of tech Twitter, there’s the state of tech, Instagram and there’s the state of tech, Fb.
