Debuting on the iPhone 13 Pro soon after launch is a feature that enables the device to capture video in Apple’s ProRes format. So what does this mean, and what are the benefits and drawbacks of filming in this format? What Is ProRes? ProRes is a video codec, like H.264 and H.265 that are used by the majority of smartphones and digital cameras.

These daily occurrences showcase both the wonderful openness of Android and its downfalls. Phones bogged down because an app is accessing more than it should is a problem on modern flagships as much as it is on underpowered … [Read more...] about Google has improved Android a lot in the last few years, but it’s still too easy to ruin a phone
Home / Opinions / Smartphones Blazing fast I think Samsung will have Android 12 ready to go by the time the next flagship series is released. Jerry Hildenbrand 7 May 2021 12 Source: Hayato Huseman / Android Central There are plenty of choices when it comes to buying a new Android phone, and every model has its own specific things that make it great. You'll also find a Samsung Galaxy phone at the top or near the top of any best phone list out there, and for good reason: they combine awesome hardware with meaningful features that draw in plenty of users. Small complaints aside (we all have those with every phone), I think Samsung killed it with the Galaxy S21 , and I'm not surprised when someone says it's up there with the best Android phones you can buy. You can't deny that the Galaxy S21 is one of the best Android phones you can buy right now. Google also makes some great phones like the Pixel 5 , and when it … [Read more...] about Project Treble’s success means Android 12 will come to Samsung phones faster than ever
