How Fast Can You Type On The Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ come with a Book Cover with an integrated kickstand, S Pen compartment and keyboard.

While most tablets offer keyboard options, you will be surprised at just how fast you can actually type on the Galaxy Tab S7 keyboard! Take a look…

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard : What Is It?

The Samsung Book Cover Keyboard is an accessory for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ tablets.

It protects the tablet from damage, and comes with an integrated kickstand, S Pen compartment and keyboard.

Its two-piece design transforms your Galaxy Tab S7 or Tab S7+ tablet into a laptop, that quickly turns into a tablet whenever you want.

It is available for both Galaxy Tab S7 models. They only differ in their sizes (prices as of 14 December 2020):

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Keyboard : How Fast Can You Type On It?

To showcase how fast you can type on the Book Cover Keyboard, Samsung brought in expert stenographer Jongheon Im.

Stenographers are trained to type as fast as a person speaks, so they need to be very fast!

In this video, Im is asked to transcribe a minute of speech on two regular keyboards, and then on the Galaxy Tab S7+ with the Book Cover Keyboard.

While Im is most comfortable with the special stenography keyboard, she felt that it was more comfortable to type on the Book Cover Keyboard, than an actual laptop keyboard.

In the end, she managed to type at around 700 strokes per minute on the Book Cover Keyboard, compared to 670 strokes on a laptop keyboard.

Frankly, most of us would expect to type faster on a laptop keyboard than a tablet keyboard… but as our review pointed out – the Book Cover Keyboard is really nice to type on, especially with its 26% larger keycaps and 18.3 mm key pitch.

We highly recommend it for anyone who purchases the Galaxy Tab S7 or Galaxy Tab S7+ tablet.

Fact Check : Lazada Delivery Man Caught Licking Package?

Photos of a Lazada delivery man licking and spitting on a package is going viral, with warnings to sanitise packages you receive from Lazada and other delivery services.

Find out what happened, and decide for yourself if he really did lick that package!

 

Claim : Lazada Delivery Guy Caught Licking Package!

This Facebook post, and similar variants, are going viral on social media and WhatsApp, showing what appears to be a Lazada delivery man licking and spitting on a package.

Please sanitize your Lazada packages today! This is what we saw from our CCTV.

Let’s continue to be vigilant. This CCTV footage was taken at the house of our friend in AAV only today.

They often have Lazada and Shopee deliveries so they already setup a drop off / sanitation table in their garage.

The CCTV footage shows 2 Lazada delivery guys with masks on their chin and one of them rubbed his face on the package then spat on it.

PLEASE PLEASE be careful with your deliveries. Sanitize and sanitize again!

There are evil people!

 

Lazada Delivery Guy Caught Licking Package : The Facts

This Facebook post appears to be genuine, but is being disputed by the Lazada delivery man caught in the images above.

Here is what we know so far…

Fact #1 : The Incident Happened On 3 December 2020

In social media, the posts are often shared stating that “it happened today”, or “this just happened”, or left unsaid.

The original post appears to have been removed, but based on our investigations, the incident happened at around 5:30 PM on 3 December 2020.

Fact #2 : The Incident Happened In Manila

You may have seen people claiming that this happened “locally”, but that lacks context.

The incident did not happen in Singapore or Malaysia or even Thailand.

It happened outside a home in Ayala Alabang in Muntinlupa, Metro Manila in the Philippines.

Fact #3 : The Lazada Delivery Man Disputed The Claim

The Lazada delivery man, Justine Rainer Israel of Pasay City, publicly disputed the claim.

In a Facebook post (now removed), he accused the OP (Original Poster) of discrimination, saying that rich people like them look down on poor people like him.

Here is the rough English translation, please correct us if we are wrong :

I am the one in the picture. Yes, I stuck my face on it but I did not lick or spit on your item or parcel.

You are rich, we are poor like that. You will do it, you will see something wrong.

I waited for more than 20 to 30 minutes at your gate in Ayala Alabang in the middle of the heat.

I sat down because it was tiring to wait for you rich people to collect your item, but why are you so judgemental?

I AM NOT CRAZY TO DO THAT. YES, I WORK TO EARN A LIVING. SUFFERING IN THE HEAT EVEN WHEN HUNGRY, JUST TO DELIVER THE ITEM YOU NEED, RIGHT?

JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE NO MONEY. YOU ARE RICH. THAT”S WHAT YOU DO TO THOSE OF US WHO WORK FOR A LIVING.

I used your item to cover my face to protect from the heat because you took so long to come out. God bless to all of you wherever you are. I hope you will be happy forever!

Fact #4 : Netizens Dispute His Claim

While some netizens commiserated with the Lazada delivery man, other netizens pointed out that :

  • it was wrong to remove the face mask and place the package against his face and mouth
  • the Lazada delivery team was only there for less than 6 minutes
  • he was seen in the CCTV footage swinging the package and hitting it against his leg

 

Lazada Delivery Guy Licking Package : Should You Be Worried?

Should you be worried if your local Lazada delivery guy, or any other delivery guy for the matter, licks your packages, or spits on them?

Other than the fact that it is highly unsanitary, the risk of catching COVID-19 from packages is practically nil, although it has been considered a possible mode of transmission.

So far, there has been no record of anyone getting infected by COVID-19 through fomites – contaminated objects like that package.

That said, it is a good idea to wipe down any parcel or package you receive. But more importantly, you should always maintain good hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap, or using a hand sanitiser.

The Samsung Galaxy M20 Up Close!

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) is designed around a large 6.3-inch Infinity-V display, and a large 5,000 mAh battery.

This display has a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, with more than 90% screen-to-body ratio!

Let’s take an up close look at the Samsung Galaxy M20, and its key features!

The SIM tray is located on the left side, with the Power and Volume control buttons on the right. The 3.5 mm audio port is located at the bottom, next to the USB Type C port.

 

Samsung Exynos 7904

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) runs on the new Samsung Exynos 7904 mobile SoC.

With a 2+6 architecture, the Exynos 7904 has two fast Cortex-A73 cores running at 1.8 GHz, and six low-power Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.6 GHz.

It also has a dual-core ARM Mali-G71 GPU to accelerate graphics and games.

 

Memory + Storage

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) has two variants – a base model with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and a higher-end model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

There is considerable bloat though. Out of the 4 GB memory capacity, 1.9 GB or just under half is available for use. We definitely recommend going with 4 GB of RAM.

The operating system and built-in apps take up just under 13 GB, which leaves you about 51 GB of free space. In the base model which has 32 GB of storage, you will only have about 19 GB of free space to use.

 

Triple Card Tray

Don’t worry about running out of storage space though. The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) comes with a triple card tray.

This allows you to use two nano SIM cards, and a microSD of up to 512 GB in capacity.

 

Fingerprint Sensor

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) comes with a rear fingerprint sensor, aligned centrally.

 

V-Notch

Covering most of the front is a large 6.3-inch IPS display, which Samsung calls an Infinity-V display because of its V-shaped notch.

The smaller V-notch allows for a larger display area, specifically space for more notifications. Barring the complete removal of the notch, this is about as good as it gets!

Samsung Galaxy M20 Cameras

Concealed within the teardrop notch of the Samsung Galaxy M20’s Infinity-V display is an 8 MP selfie camera with f/2.0 lens.

The front camera does not have a dedicated LED flash, but is supported by screen flash instead.

In the back, it has a 13 MP main camera with f/1.9 lens, and a secondary 5 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 lens.

The ultra-wide angle camera is really useful for certain shots. Let’s show you what the difference between the main camera (with a 76° angle) and the ultra-wide angle camera (120°)

 

Battery Life

We tested the Samsung Galaxy M20’s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) took 2 hours and 3.5 minutes (123.5 minutes) to recharge its battery from 20% to 100%.

This gives it a good battery life : recharging ratio of 6.2 : 1. A rule of thumb – for one hour of battery life, you will need to charge it for 9.5 minutes.

Samsung Galaxy M20 Photo Samples

Here are eight full-sized unedited photo samples taken using the Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US).

At the full 13 MP resolution, the photos are 4128 x 3096 pixels in size, with file sizes between 3 MB and 4 MB.

Click on them to expand – you can also download them to “peek” at the pixels!

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) produced very good pictures, particularly when you consider its price point. However, you need to be aware of two issues.

Its wide aperture is great for low-light photography, but introduces a narrow depth-of-field. That means you may need to “help” it focus on your subject, or it will turn out blur – out of focus.

The other thing is that it requires some distance to focus properly. So macro shots will be a challenge.

 

Samsung Galaxy M20 Video Samples

Despite sporting a 13 MP camera, the Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) only supports 1080p video recording. Here are two video samples :

Video Sample #1 : Live Performance

The image quality was excellent, but it was painfully obvious that it was not even electronically-stabilised.

There were also some exposure issues – sometimes it was overly dark, and when we tapped on the subject to correct – the background got overblown.

But on the bright side, the audio quality was very good. It was richer, with a markedly widerly range, than most smartphones at the same price range.

Video Sample #2 : Auto Show

This walk around of a small auto show demonstrates just how important stabilisation is when you record a video.

We can understand the lack of optical image stabilisation, but why didn’t Samsung throw in electronic image stabilisation?

This is a real shame, because the image quality was good, even though there were some exposure issues.

Samsung Exynos processors have never been particularly strong at work performance, and the Samsung Exynos 7904 is no exception. It was 13% slower than the Redmi Note 7 which uses the 2-year old Qualcomm Snapdragon 660.

 

Gaming Performance – 3DMark

We then tested the Samsung Galaxy M20’s gaming performance using 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.

The Samsung Exynos 7904 was not fast at games either, with its dual-core ARM Mali-G71 GPU.

It was actually half as fast as the Redmi Note 7 which uses the 2-year old Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. It was closest in performance to the OPPO R17 Pro, which uses the MediaTek Helio P60.

 

Our Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) is an interesting mid-range contender. It comes with a large 6.3-inch Full HD+ display and a large 5,000 mAh battery to keep it going for hours and hours…

It also comes with a nice complement of cameras. Its 8 MP front camera boasts a fast, bright f/2.0 lens. In the back, it has an excellent 13 MP main camera, with a very useful secondary ultra-wide angle 5 MP camera.

However, its muted colour makes its chassis look like a budget device, a far cry from the premium look of the cheaper Realme 3!

We also wish Samsung added electronic image stabilisation to their camera. It would have made the Galaxy M20 (MY | US) a more compelling device. After all, the Redmi Note 7 offers electronically-stabilised video recording at the same price point!

The Samsung Galaxy M20 (MY | US) is a good effort by Samsung to defend its lower mid-range market share. However, it will find strong headwinds from Chinese smartphones like the Redmi Note 7 and the Realme 3.

The Black Shark 2 Tech Briefing, Price + Deals Revealed!

Coming just two weeks after its global launch in Beijing, the Black Shark 2 is here to take down the ROG Phone and the Razer Phone 2!

Here is everything you need to know about Black Shark 2 – the official tech briefing, as well as its price and deals!

 

The Black Shark 2 Gaming Smartphone

Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) is a gaming-optimised smartphone, very similar to the ROG Phone and the Razer Phone 2. It was designed to take both its competitors down in five key aspects of mobile gaming – gaming performance, gaming control, vision, hearing and vibration.

Flagship Class

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) runs on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, and comes with either 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage, or 12 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage.

Direct Touch Liquid Cooling System 3.0

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) features a direct touch liquid cooling system that keeps the entire device cool, as opposed to just cooling the CPU and GPU.

Ludicrous Mode

To guarantee maximum gaming performance with no dropped frames, the Ludicrous Mode locks the CPU into its maximum clock speed.

5-Hour Gaming Battery Life

Despite its size, the Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) only comes with a 4,000 mAh battery.  However, they assure us that it will let you game for up to 5 hours before it needs a recharge.

Fast Charging While Gaming

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) supports 27 watt fast charging, which gives you 30 minutes playing time with a quick 5-minute charge, and one full hour of gaming with just 10 minutes of charging.

You don’t even have to stop playing. Even if, for example, you are playing PUBG, it will recharge to 15% in just 30 minutes.

X+2 Antenna

To ensure maximum wireless connectivity, the Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) features an enhanced X+2 antenna design. The two additional side antennas help the X-type smart antenna transfer data wirelessly no matter how you grip the phone.

Low Latency Touch Screen

It claims to have the “world’s lowest latency touch screen“, with a response time of only 43.5 ms, slightly less than the iPhone XS at 45 ms and the Galaxy S10 at 60 ms.

AMOLED Display With DC Dimming

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) has a large 6.38-inch AMOLED display with DC dimming to reduce strain on the eyes.

It also boasts an integrated DSP with MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation) capabilities to eliminate unwanted judder and blur.

Gaming Audio

[adrotate group=”2″]

Its audio system is designed specifically for gamers, with dual front-facing speakers. They are also 25% larger than speakers of a standard smartphone.

It also comes with three gaming microphones – two of them noise-cancelling microphones in the front to  ensure clear in-game voice chats.

4D Gaming Experience

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) can recognise different environments, weapons, movements and actions (e.g. hits), and can automatically vibrate itself to create a 4D gaming experience.

Host Mode

If you want to play on a larger display, you can connect it to a TV or monitor using a HDMI cable. Play your games like a console with the optional GamePad 3.0 accessory.

 

Black Shark 2 Price + Deals Revealed!

The Black Shark 2 (8GB | 12GB) is available in two variants, and two colour options :

  • 8 GB + 128 GB (Only Shadow Black) : RM 2,499 / ~US$ 612.50 / ~£ 467
  • 12 GB + 256 GB (Shadow Black or Frosted Silver) : RM 2,999 / ~US$ 735 / ~£ 560

The 8 GB model is available for purchase with immediate effect. The 12 GB model is available for pre-order from 1 April to 5 April, 2019.

Honor 10 Price & Availability

The Honor 10 launched in London with an official price of £399 for the 128 GB model. This works out to be around RM 2,139 as of 18 May 2018. However, we have good news!

The Honor 10 will be available for sale in Malaysia for a low, low price of RM 1,699 / £318! But if that’s not enough, Honor Malaysia is giving a RM 100 cash back, which means the Honor 10 will cost only RM 1,599 / £299!!!

The Honor 10 goes on sale on 24 May 2018, and the special RM 1,599 price ostensibly lasts from 24 May to 31 May. On 1 June 2018, it would be priced at RM 1,599. This basically removes the 6% GST tax concern from everyone’s mind.

The Honor 10’s price of RM 1,599 / £299 / US$ 403 is the lowest price globally. It’s a whopping 14% cheaper than the Chinese launch price of RMB 2,999 / RM 1,869 / £336 / US$ 471!

The Honor 10 will be available in three colour options – Phantom Blue, Glacier Grey and Midnight Black.
