Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro Specs Comparison!

Today I want to compare Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro. Both these two phone brands are my favourites. The first thing that is different in terms of design perspective is that the P20 Pro comes with an iPhone X notch at the top. Something many people dislike. This is a notch that many Android phone companies have started to copy and we may see an LG phone and OnePlus phone also come with a notch.

An interesting difference here is how the S9 comes with new Bluetooth 5.0 while the P20 Pro only has 4.2. This may be important to know if you listen to wireless sound with Bluetooth earphones since 5.0 has some nice improvements in technology.

Another major difference is P20 Pro comes with 4000mAh battery and S9 with only 3000mAh! This is something Samsung has been struggling with as of late. After the Note 7 fiasco with battery issues it feels like they are going the safe path by giving you less mAh just to be on the safe side. But people want a lot of mAh so their phone last a very long time.

A nice thing with the Galaxy S9 is how it gives you microSD card option to expand memory all the way up to 400GB. The Huawei phone has no option to expand memory.

A big difference between these two phones is how the Huawei phone comes with a triple camera on rear side. This is something that we have never seen in the past. 2017 was the big year for dual rear cameras. Perhaps 2018 will be the year of triple real cameras.

The secondary camera on Huawei P20 Pro comes with 24MP sensor while the S9 only has 8MP secondary camera. A bad thing with P20 is how it has no 3.5mm audio jack. The S9 comes with an earphone jack! Great for people that listen to stuff with wired earphones.

It seems like the Galaxy S9 gives you some extra screen protection with Gorilla Glass 5. My Huawei Mate 9 it’s screen broke very easy when I accidentally dropped it. So it seems like Huawei phones got lots of stuff to work on to make them stronger in the future.

In terms of display size it’s a bit bigger on the P20 Pro with 6.1” display the Galaxy S9 comes with 5.8” display. And S9 is then also a little bit lighter to hold in the hand. But many people would prefer a little bit heavier phone to get that premium phone feel experience. Both these phones have water resistance. But the Huawei phones is a bit slimmer which is a big deal for many.

Another problem with the Samsung phone is that the fingerprint sensor is still located too close to the rear camera. This has been a big problem on the Galaxy S8. It also has a design that isn’t rounded so it feels too small. Both the phones run latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. And they both have Octa-core processor and very similar GPUs so gaming performance should be very identical.

To summarise: It mostly comes down to what brand you are most comfortable with using. And what design you prefer the most since the specs is very high end on both devices. Many Apple users will probably think you are an iPhone X fanboy if you buy the Huawei P20 Pro.

I wish both of these phones came with a built in stylus like Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has also a very useful Always-on-display that is super useful. Not sure if the Huawei phone comes with that. Could also be good to know that the P20 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and Galaxy S9 only with 4GB.

It also seems like the P20 Pro phone has a home button at the bottom. It seems to be a real hardware button. Something that many people enjoy to have on front. Especially in these days when more companies are removing that feature.

The price is around the same for these two phones. Huawei is the new Apple I feel since they are very hungry and making gains fast in the phone world. And they produce quality phones compare to boring HTC, Sony and LG!

Will AI Become Smarter Than Humans Soon?

There is a new documentary you can watch online which is being called “Do You Trust This Computer”. It talks about the dangers of future super intelligence. As you probably already know we are moving into an Age where computers and our smartphones are constantly becoming more powerful. And we will soon probably create AI or in it’s long form Artificial Intelligence. This intelligence may become smarter than humans.

The risk with this is that we may lose control over planet Earth. Elon Musk said some interesting things in the documentary. For example this quote about AI: “an immortal dictator from which we could never escape.”. Remember that this is coming from a very smart guy that has created three different billion dollar companies! So he knows what he is talking about. Me personally thinks that he knows how serious it is and now he tries to take us to Mars before it’s too late. But only rich people will be able to afford it for now.

I recommend you to watch the documentary but be aware that they add some politics in the movie which I feel is wrong. They should have kept it neutral! But the whole idea is that we should probably democratize AI so everyone can get their hands on it. So not just a small elite gets it. Because they can then do scary things with it and dominate planet Earth. Another scary thing Musk said was: “At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die. But for an AI, there will be no death – it would live forever. And then you would have an immortal dictator from which we could never escape.”.

I think to be honest that perhaps Elon has watched a bit too many science fiction movies. It all sounds romantic with robots take over this planet but will it really happen? Can’t we just power off the electricity and start over? We have done well a very long time without it so we could turn it off again. The only problem is that now most are addicted to their gadgets. We would have to teach people survival skills again.

To be honest I don’t think AI will see humans as a threat. We are not that super smart! I think that AI will work side by side with man to create a better safer world. Also I think that eventually we will be able to upgrade our brains so we could become super humans.

We are already seeing this starting to happen with humans how they are replacing arms and legs with real robotic parts. It looks like a fantasy story or like the movie Avatar. What is human and what is machine will be a very interesting question in the future. Since stuff will get a bit confusing. We can look at Japan to see a bit into the future since they are developing lots of interesting tech before everyone else.

Currently I read a very interesting book about the topic of speed. How everything have started to speed up more and more in terms of innovation the last couple of years. The book is called The Great Acceleration and I think you should read it. It’s very well researched and a great writer called Robert Colvile. If you want to watch the documentary that inspired me to write this blog post then you can do so here. Do you think Elon Musk is right or is he dreaming?

Best Android/iOS Online Shopping App 2018!

AliExpress is a very cool shopping app that you can get to your phone. The cool thing with this company behind the app is that it truly has everything!

Some of the main categories that exist are clothes for men and women, beauty and health products, cellphones, computers, consumer electronics, furniture, home appliances, toys, shoes and watches! As you can see this app is a little bit like the Amazon app! They truly cover most of the key areas that people find the most exciting.

Another very nice thing is that they offer coins and coupons to get amazing deals. First you have a daily coin feature that reward you for every check in. Then you have the options of being able to win coins by playing fun games. These coins can then later be traded to products or coupons.

There is also a freebies section where you can get free product to then be able to review. Although at the moment it looks a bit silly since there is thousands of requests per item and only a few units being sent out so you will probably not win but at least it’s nice they give you the opportunity to win.

There is also a zone in AliExpress  app which is being called the Fan Zone where you can see influencers and their favourite products! This is great if you are a blogger and want to get on-board to get free review samples! They have a section called star bloggers where you can end up in if you do a great job!

Another amazing thing that you can do is image search. So you can take a photo of something and it will search the store for that product. I tried with my cup and it worked! This is amazing since it makes shopping so much more fun and easy!

Another thing that I find very cool with this AliExpress shopping app is the share feature. After you made a first order then you can use share feature which allows you to share other items and get over 10% commission! This is way higher than many other websites will give you! And you can see the click and order stats right in the app!

When you open up the app there is also a section that is called Flash Deals. This let’s you quickly see great products where the price has been cut down!

There is also an inspiration section in these categories: Tech, Fashion, Kids, Beauty, Home and Hair. Great if you are bored but want to buy something but needs to be inspired first.

The key feature that I like with this app is that they are creating a community aspect around shopping so they are making it more engaging and social. You can clearly see how they have put work into this app. You can see that they care about making a great experience.

Another thing that is nice is how it keeps loading up new products if you keep scrolling down. Just as YouTube does! So no need for any complicated search. Eventually with Machine Learning and AI it will probably just keep getting more intelligent to find out what you may want for the moment. You also have a built in message feature and you can leave app suggestions!

Another feature is wish list. Just as Amazon have. If there is a cool product that you want to save for later just use this! What do you think about the AliExpress shopping app? It’s my new favourite shopping app!

The Difference Between a Man and a Boy

Today I want to talk about the core difference between a man and a boy in life. So the core thing that I have found is the difference is Slow and Steady = Man, Fast and Unsteady = Boy. The word teenager was a word that didn’t exist before the 1950s. I think it’s real important for males to know the difference so they can grow up.

Responsibility is very important for a man. To learn how to make decisions that will be great for the long term. Building a great stable foundation is key. Since if it’s boy unstable then if you build anything on top of it, it will just fall down and crash eventually. But if you create a real man steady ground then you can build anything on top and it will not crash down.

And the irony with doing things so called slower is that you do not avoid work you know you should be doing. Because every step forward is super easy when you do things 3x slower. This means you pay so much more attention and the irony with it that in the long term you get 10x more things done than when you was in boy mode running around like a maniac.

This world relies on solid man to get their stuff together. That is the future of this world. Men make stuff happen. That is how it always has been and will keep be in the future. We are warriors and it’s our natural role to take care of things. This means we need to be solid stuff that works amazing. Building amazing businesses. Be fearless and so on. So much skills and beauty that goes in to becoming a true man.

But starting off by just slowing down and do proper work is a great step to be a man. So much boy mentality in our society that cause lots of weakness in our modern culture. Someone needs to do something about it. Men need to keep up moral standards and responsibility or society will fall apart very fast. It’s important that males starts to become rich and successful since our society is desperate for more high-level men that gets stuff done and do amazing stuff.

Brave Browser For Android/iOS/Windows/Mac is Amazing!

Today I want to talk about my favourite new browser on my Galaxy S8 smartphone and on my MacBook Pro computer. It’s called Brave browser.

The last couple of years I have mainly been using the Google Chrome browser and before that the Firefox browser. Lately I got bored of the engineer UI of the Chrome browser. I tried Firefox for a while and then I realized it was a pretty unstable browser. Eventually I found the Brave browser!

What is different with this browser? First of all it’s fast and it already comes with adblock pre-installed so no annoying ads being shown on websites! A more clean experience. The next thing that is amazing is how it comes with support for blocking trackers that secretly starts to run in the background of your device with other browsers.

But the core thing about the Brave browser is that it has support for the BAT token. This means you can support your favourite YouTube/Twitch or Website creators by rewarding them with BAT tokens on a monthly basis. You can see the amount of time you spent on each website and have control over how much you want to give to each service. This is great because it will encourage your favourite creators to create more of the content that you love to consume.

Brave browser will also come with support for most of the Chrome extensions because it’s built using the Chromium setup. I also think it has a very nice logo and just a fresh feel. It also has something called HTTPS upgrades that can speed up things even more! It can even block 3rd party cookies that tries to follow you around the web.

Also very easy to disable the shield for your favourite creators if you want to support them by running ads. I like how the tab system works. Feels like it’s more smooth and nicer experience than other browsers. What do you think about the Brave browser? Is there a specific feature you would like to see?
