OnePlus 6T

OnePlus 6T Full Review

For any brand or company, launching two flagship phones it is quite tough, and it may not work always. However, OnePlus has been launching two phones every year like a schedule since the launch of 3T in 2016, though it never committed that it would continue making the T series of devices as a regular thing. And, recently OnePlus came with the new OnePlus 6T again.

In a mobile, there’s very less new tech that needs and meaningful upgrade, and bringing a new device to market every six months can decrease the sale as customers tend to lose their interest in it.

The new upcoming OnePlus 6T feels like a genuine step up from the OnePlus 6, launched earlier this year with improved technology and also an improvement in the handset before the next generation.

The OnePlus 6T doesn’t have much eye-catching or must-have new features, but this can be taken as the hint for the on the way OnePlus 7.

OnePlus 6T: Release date and price

OnePlus 6T

The customers will be able to pre-order the OnePlus 6T very soon, and also the customers will be able to buy it from the OnePlus website from November 6. Moreover, for European countries, it has been confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will go on sale at 9 am UK time on Tuesday, November 6.

The OnePlus 6T will be made available in two color schemes i.e., Mirror Black and Midnight Black. The Mirror Black is glossy, while the Midnight Black model has a lower-key matte finish.

For the Mirror black, the price starts at $549 / £499 for the 6GB of RAM and 128GB and with 8GB of RAM, it will cost you $579 / £529.

Similarly, for Midnight Black the price starts at £529 / $579 8GB of RAM and 128GB and $629 / £579 for versions with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

With the up growing popularity of the brand, it can’t be guaranteed that paying a visit will enable you to buy the OnePlus 6T ahead of schedule because the supplies will be very limited.

OnePlus 6T: Carriers and retailers

In back days, OnePlus handsets were really difficult to buy but now OnePlus’ exclusivity arrangement with O2. With O2, Vodafone and EE will be also offering the OnePlus 6T and also, it will be available in Amazon UK, John Lewis, and Carphone Warehouse.

OnePlus 6T: Design and Features

OnePlus 6T

OnePlus has improved its design from the last couple of iterations of its flagship phone, and also, the previous released OnePlus 6 design felt like it had a lot of hard work involved as it didn’t skimp on some of the essentials like the older phones in the series.

The OnePlus 6T is quite similar to the OnePlus 6 with very few changes but still, the changes are worthwhile and well implemented. The body is made up of glass body on both the front and back side with choice of two colors: mirror black or midnight black to choose between.  And also it is expected that the brand will introduce different other colors with the time being like the red and white version of the previous generations of OnePlus devices.

The phone has dimensions of 157.5 x 74.8 x 8.2mm weighing 185gm. It’s not a large device so it is quite comfortable to hold, and it’s easy enough to grip and handle.
The rear part of the mobile seems clear, as the fingerprint scanner has moved below the display section. It now has just got the two-sensor camera and a small flash below it. Excluding the camera of the phone is empty, which ultimately gives a comfortable feel in the hand.

The right-hand edge of the phone has a power on button, which is one option that wakes up the device or else you can also double tap on the screen. And, one of the best features OnePlus series has is the slider that allows you to mute your phone with a quick flick. This is mainly found in Apple devices but not in many Android ones. This slider is very useful when we want to quickly mute our device.

Similarly, the left-hand edge has the volume rocker and the bottom of the phone has the USB-C port, surrounded by two speakers for stereo audio in its each side
One of the decisions of OnePlus that has upset the user is that it has no 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead, it includes a 3.5mm to USB-C adapter in the box to plug in your wired headphones or the alternative way is to use Bluetooth headphones as an alternative.

It’s is still not considered a good decision of the company even though it has been including the headphone jack on every device while rival companies have dropped it.

OnePlus 6T: Display and Specs

 

There is a lot of change in the display in the OnePlus 6T in comparison with the latest OnePlus 6 which lost most of its bezel and adopts a notch at the top of the display. The notch has been shrunk down in OnePlus 6T so it relatively takes a very little space so, there’s more screen at the top left and right of the device.

There’s a dual camera set up around the back, with16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors, and also optical image stabilization and a couple of new photography features i.e., the ‘Nightscape’ mode particularly designed to improve pictures taken in low light conditions, and Studio Lighting similar to the Portrait Mode on the Google Pixel 3 and iPhone XS. At the front is the 16-megapixel selfie camera which has electronic image stabilization.

The display measures about 6.41-inch with AMOLED screen, but since the body of the phone isn’t as large it doesn’t feel like a big-screen phone when holding it. It has1080 x 2340 screen resolution i.e.19:5:9 ratios, so it is considered to have a longer screen than on some other phones. With this resolution, it makes the picture quality is gorgeous and the AMOLED technology makes the colors pop.

The greatest upgrade is the unlocking system of the phone i.e., the fingerprint sensor which is now embedded at the front of the device. But you may have to face an issue as it won’t immediately register our fingerprint, and it is quite slow in comparison to Huawei Mate 20.

It also enables its Face Unlock at the same time, and when you’re using both technologies the response time is very near one feature allowing you to unlock your device quickly.

Autodesk Maya VS Blender

maya autodesk vs Blender

Autodesk Maya, developed by Alias Systems Corporation and now owned by an Auto desk, Inc is a 3D computer graphics application, which runs efficiently on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. It is widely used for creating 3D applications like video games, animation movies, TV series, visual effects etc.

Blender, developed by Blender Foundation, is an open source and 3D computer graphics software toolset which is made available in Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. It is widely used for creating animated visual effects in the movies, 3D models and video games.

Maya provides a variety suite of tools of 3D creation work ranging between modeling; animation etc which can be used by the developers to edit and create 3D models in various formats and animate them.

Blender is a non-profit group which has a wide variety of tools which can be used to create animated feature films, games, and interactive application. It is suitable for almost any kind of media projects.

Maya provides software interface which is customizable, helping skilled developers to take their productivity to a greater level. It extends their functionality with Maya where developers can customize the interface, by writing down scripts and macros.

Blender is a cross-platform application having a small set of memory and hard drive requirements compare to other 3D creation tools. Blender’s interface uses OpenGL to provide a consistent experience across all supportive hardware platforms.

There is true that Maya is the standard version for 3D applications there as it is a very powerful program which allows a user to animate, stimulate and render.  Blender whereas, is under the shadow of Maya making it consider as an underdog in the 3D industry. But that does not make Blender is a worse software tool.

Both tools have their own much unique functionality in Blender that to help to speed up the workflow or simply a task easier though, Maya provides certain features which are way superior to Blender.

Differences between Autodesk Maya and 3d Max

The both Autodesk 3DS Max and Maya, owned and developed by the same company, Autodesk, Inc are both 3D computer graphics programs used by developers for making 3D animations, models, and images in TV commercial studios, and architectural visualization studios to create video games, animated film, TV series, and visual effects.

It is mostly used by people who are not interested in becoming professional animators as they are most commonly used in the film and video game industries. If you’re new to either of the programs, here’s a tutorial for 3DS Max for beginners and an introduction to the animation workflow in Maya.

Different industries have their own preferences for 3DS Max or Maya. Many artists prefer to use Maya for the advanced animation and some use 3DS Max, most often used for architects and engineers to easily interact with AutoCad and other Autodesk design tools. Hence, both programs are used equally within the gaming industry, although developers have their own opinions favoring each other:

  1. Ease of Use

While 3DS Max and Maya have their own features in which 3DS Max is favored than Maya, making it the more user-friendly of the two. 3DS Max’s basic functions can be learned in under two months whereas Maya, presents a very steep learning curve.

Many companies hire workers able to master Maya because it is considered the harder of the two programs to learn and you a capable of adapting to a new modeling program.

  1. Functionality and User Interface

The Maya and 3DS Max, are two similar applications with very different features and functions. The 3DS Max interacts with objects where you can learn to name them, move them, rotate them, extrude them, and work with them in your models and has detailed visual effects features that allow for the creation of hair, water and other complex particle systems.

Maya, on the other hand includes a customizable interface that provides a quick and easy way to create and animate characters by using a skeleton rigging feature.

  1. Compatibility

Since 3D artists and animators work with a wide variety of tools and programs, they have to be adaptable with either Maya or 3DS Maya and have the basic knowledge about the way in which these applications work together. 3DS Max is compatible with motion capture software used in video game development whereas Maya is compatible with various effects used in creating realistic environments and advanced lightning rigs. Toda, both Maya and 3DS Max are compatible with current video game development kits, but 3DS Max is considered to have more features and options.

Conclusion:

Ignoring the negative reviews you can determine which program will work best for you by trying out the both. If you’re a student with a valid ID or a parent, you will be able to get a full version of Maya and 3DS Max for free with a 13 month from any University bookstore.

Mosquito Xet

Mosquito XET Turbine Helicopter Full Review

If you ever dreamt of solar-powered helicopters then the good news for you is that you can now buy your own personal solar-powered helicopter for $40,000! The new Mosquito XET Turbine is a powered version of XE series. The Mosquito XET is designed by Dwight Junkin at Composite FX which uses custom gearboxes to handle the 71kw (95HP) Solar turbine with 16 x 5 x 7 dimensions.

By purchasing your very own Mosquito XET is made out of a unibody fiberglass construction which minimizes the weight of XET and maximizing structural efficiency. It is fundamentally safer as a personal aircraft with speed reach of up to 100mph with custom-built 71kw (95HP) solar turbine.

  1. Airframe

The Mosquito XET airframe is similar to the XE airframe with a unibody construction made of high-quality fiberglass in a vinyl ester matrix. The body and structure are the same to which minimizes weight and maximizes the structural efficiency.

  1. The Engine

It uses a solar turbine with 71kw (95HP) and custom gearbox.

  1. Power Train

A centrifugal clutch on the engine crankshaft starts engine without the load of the rotor and power is transmitted from the clutch to the driven pulley through an HTD cog belt. HTD cog belt is one of the highest powers to weight ratio power transmission in different methods available.

  1. The Control Systems

The control system of Mosquito is unique. The main rotor control is achieved from the floor mounted joystick and in the mast; it is collected through a control mixer in the base then, through push tubes to the base of the swash plate. The swash plate is supported by a push tube located in the rotor shaft. The Control rods present on either side of the push tube transmit inputs through the rotor shaft to the control lever and then down to the blade pitch horns through pitch links.

  1. The Rotor System

The Mosquito XET has the main rotor as a semi-rigid configuration. The main rotor blades consist of an aluminum spar bonded to a wrapped aluminum sheet skin. The tail rotor is also has a semi-rigid configuration with aluminum skin wrapped around a tube and foam plugs at either end. To maintain tail rotor alignment, a 45 degree drag hinge is utilized.
