  1. Asus Zenfone 6. Thank God they included a headphone jack. I plan to use it at least for 1 more year. I mainly want to use these with a stationary setup. That's why I'm not much concerned about Bluetooth. I do own tws and wireless neckband earphones as well.
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to ask why this over the others mentioned. Also note: I am not an audiophile or prefer straight flat sound. I am used to Sennheiser sound signature and the issue with Samson sr950 was that reviews mentioned that it was harsh and needed EQ. (My perfect device would be Sennheiser bass level, Sony's punch and Audio Technica's clarity) I saw those but removed them from my choices because they don't seem too comfortable (on the ear) as I wear specs
  3. Hi im trying to choose between certain budget audio headphones. If you guys can have some input then it will be much appreciated! Models Amazon links :- Wired AKG k92 : AKG OneOdio pro50 : OneOdio Wireless Tribit XFree Go : Tribit I do not mind if they are wired. I plan to use them with my laptop and just sometimes with my phone. I also own the Sony xm3 for travel and to be honest I like their ANC but Im not a fan of their sound signature. Wireless is an added bonus but I need them to work well in wired mode because Sony xm3 s
  4. if you arent trolling well then you have a weird sense of the world or morality idk. never been hostile towards and frankly dont care enough to do so either. this conversation with you seems futile so unless you wanna logically counter my valid arguments and have a decent discussion im out.
  5. ok sure take my wording and criticize it. check the rate for epic store and every other store for devs. check the amount of free games consumers get. if the market becomes open for other players then the price drops. if epic starts becoming the monopoly then steam/apple etc have to drop their prices to compete and if they dont then well their loss but consumers gain. if epic increases its prices, we get options and the consumer/dev isnt in a worse position from where we are right now. it also allows future players to adopt a similar strategy to epic to compete. so whats the freaking issue here
  6. even if epic isn't doing it based on values, if it helps both the consumers and devs and sticks it to large corporations like apple which make deals with big players like twitch or amazon or themselves but straight no to small creators then whats the freaking problem? i dont get the argument here. why do people defend it in this way? yes capitalism is good for progress but lets be real here for a second. apple is a 2 trillion dollar company that puts it above most countries in the world! 30 percent for every transaction? really?
  7. currently on 1909 2004 available since i had paused updates. haven't gone to it yet. usually wait for some time for any bad news to come out first.
  8. as i said i want to buy a new system. i was waiting for a SKU to be available in my location but the new announcements are creating confusion for me. considering i would not use this laptop once i replace it, i dont see the point of spending on a small ssd that i wont use anytime later and migrating windows to it. its too much of a hassle. also i dont wanna spend unnecessarily until at least my job starts because well pandemic.
  9. somebody tell windows that. it bloody thinks its idle even when im gaming with 80 plus cpu and gpu utilization. will randomly start some diagnostic. it will crash because my pc is doing everything to run the game and then starts crash handler which in turn crashes my game. theres some difference in working of both for sure. i dont care about search that much in the first place. even i didnt think it would update all the time but articles/yt videos suggest that it gives a boost and i trust windows to fuck shit up.
  10. 1.help as in maybe increase in performance of the hdd in terms of snappiness or random read/writes. 4. search everything is a separate file indexing tool/software used on windows. i had it at my workplace and it performed way better on that system but theres a lot of hardware differences so im not sure. 5. see 4
  11. So im using an i5 - 6th gen u processor laptop with just a 1tb HDD inside. NO SSD Before going in the topic i know my system sucks (gonna buy a new one) until then cant buy an ssd because for some reason they're crazy expensive in India. side note: should i wait for zen 3 mobile cpus and nvidia 3000 series mobile chips for laptops? if yes any idea till when? So i recently saw somewhere that disabling the windows search indexing helps increase the performance of the disk here are my doubts. 1. Does it actually help in daily use? 2. Difference in indexin
  12. they dont ship to or provide warranty in india.
  13. my current laptop is 6 year old i5 - 6th gen I dont travel as much with my laptops so chances of physical damage is less. thats why i prefer laptops with better cooling since chnaces of anything dying is reduced.
  14. Im not a hardcore gamer but since i dont plan to upgrade for min 4 years i was thinking that 1660ti should be better long term
  15. im assuming zen 3 will be desktop chips. any idea when the new architecture will come to laptops?
  16. So youre saying 1650ti is good enough to handle 1080p medium gaming at 100hz or so ? because stupid manufacturers dont provide 1660ti models here.
  17. i want to buy a laptop which ill use to program but also game on the side since i dont have a desktop. My current laptop cant run shit and i only plan on upgrading after a minimum of 4 years. I need help deciding which specs should i aim for. I want performance, battery, good screen and medium 90 to 120 hz gaming. As far as i know according to my needs i should go for these specs: AMD Ryzen 5 4600h Nvidia GTX 1660Ti / Radeon 5600M 144hz laptop screen SSD/ SSD + HDD My budget is around 1000 - 1200 USD. Please correct me if im wrong in
  18. well thats obvious. america wants cheaper labour as always. Thats not the point of the post though. has facebook invested in other network operators? Where are they heading with this? isnt 5.7 billion is a lot to just integrate some apps ?
  19. Im not just talking about me. Is it always as it seems with fb? digital payment integration is just one thing. As i said jio already has live tv and music competitors they probably will integrate everything. content gets locked and you cant always choose not to use something. With the covid thing going on and government pushing digital payment as going cashless its the right time to make a move. this is the second time fb is trying something which could lead to privacy concerns. before this they tried to launch "free internet" which provided CERTAIN basic services for free which was
  20. source1 source2:video source3:whatsapp - source 1 So Facebook invested heavily in India which is really getting really scary now. For those of you who aren't from India let me clear the situation up. Jio (4g LTE cellular network) is owned by Reliance industries and the man at the top is Mukesh Ambani (guy in the video in source 2 )who's one of Asia's richest people. He started Jio publicly in September 2016 and in 4 years already is India largest network operator with 370 million plus subscribers (3rd largest in the world) He did
  21. most probably wont work in settings page ads or lockscreen ads as they must be baked in the os but still harvesting personal data is a concern.
  22. as i said its fine if i know what im getting into but this is a software update which introduces ads and the problem with them in the system ui is that you cant change its permissions like any app so and for a normal user it would be difficult to detect if they're harvesting personal data.
