The annual mid-range Google Pixel phone is arguably one of the most anticipated budget smartphones on the market and this year's Pixel 7a comes really close to the vanilla Pixel 7 in terms of features. However, beneath the surface, the Pixel 7a is just as capable. The handset sports Tensor G2 SoC, just like the Pixel 7, offers an excellent camera experience, and offers the same battery capacity as its more expensive sibling, while being slightly more compact. In any case, the device packs a serious punch and can challenge significantly more expensive handsets in some aspects, so...

Black reflective fragments swarm and spiral in the opening scenes of strategy game Miasma Chronicles, luring you into a dim and grim post-apocalyptic Kentucky. The game confidently strides into its setting with this beautifully animated sequence which lays the foundation for much of what’s to come in the game - and more so, perhaps, than its developers, The Bearded Ladies, had bargained for.

Established in these early scenes of the game are its priorities; narrative and worldbuilding, character development, and aesthetics. Important characteristics, yes, though not necessarily mutually exclusive to producing a great strategy RPG (SRPG?)

You meet the protagonist, Elvis, and his robo-bro, Diggs, in this greyscale setting, and through clunky exposition and enthusiastic (if not slightly corny) line delivery, they are introduced as charming, quirky, and earnest characters in spite of gloomy surroundings.

We learn of Elvis’ primary goal - to find “Mama”, who disappeared many years ago, leaving him with nothing but Diggs to raise him, a strange glove that’s able to interact with the spiraling black Miasma shards plaguing the planet, and a classically nondescript sci-fi mission; to use the glove and find her. 

The scene fades to black, and so begins a game as beautiful as it is bland, as detailed as it is simple, and as grueling as it is rewarding.

Millionaires, Macguffins and mutants - oh my!

Dystopian Kentucky faces a challenge - the arrival and encroachment of mutant life forms that seem to be affected, and perhaps even controlled, by Miasma. 

Of course, there’s a big bad beyond the miasma and its monsters; capitalism. The First Family, a collective of enigmatic elite who rule the new America, presides over its citizens with back-breaking labor expectations and a corrupted system of morality and ethics. Sound familiar? Well, it should, if not to our own rapidly apocalyptic-feeling reality, then to the wider world of sci-fi tropes.

Such themes and predictable clichés form the backbone of much of the world-building in Miasma Chronicles. Elvis is your classic plucky sci-fi protagonist and hits many of the right notes as our hero. 

As well as the aforementioned Diggs, a host of colorfully detailed and quick-quipping survivors also inhabit Elvis’ greyscale hometown - and naturally, one disembodied head with robotic tentacle arms. Some clichés are less welcome than others, though; Diggs’ characterization as a robot speaking in dated African American stereotypes demonstrates somewhat of a “heard-but-not-seen” approach to diversifying the main cast.

RPG elements are limited, at times feeling like an afterthought to carry the player from combat to combat - this is especially true for dialogue trees. Still, the often-clumsy writing is delivered with a real zeal that speaks to the passion of the voice actors involved. 

Miasma Chronicles often toes the line between earnestness and cringe, but overall the characterization feels surprisingly 3D. Through in-jokes and many, many expositional conversations, you feel a real sense of history, connection, and dynamics between most of the cast. 

Gonna take my bot down the old town road

Miasma Chronicles

Miasma Chronicles launches you headfirst into its post-apocalyptic, greyscale Kentucky with few airs and graces. Every moment of your first few hours in the game feels intense.

To some degree, it’s perhaps intentional; the game is, after all, developed by The Bearded Ladies, a studio known for its previous turn-based tactical RPGs Corruption 2029 and Mutant Year Zero. It’s fair to assume this newer title would build on the studio’s learnings, but there’s still a distinctly amateur thread woven into the game.

In principle, the mechanics are simple. You navigate a tiled battlefield, using guns, projectiles, and abilities to damage your enemies. Your proximity to an enemy will affect the probability of you making your shot (assault rifles perform better up-close, snipers from afar), and some items have status effects or can be used as a distraction. 

Simple though this may sound, in practice, this combat is wobbly and uncertain, and you don’t always feel like you’re playing the game; you’re often playing in spite of it. In the early levels especially, winning feels more like finding a crumbling foothold on a sheer cliff face than it does a success worth celebrating. Glitches interrupt turns, essential mechanics go unexplained through tutorials and a total lack of balance makes for a sluggish experience, even on normal difficulty.

There are certainly a lot of tactical options, but it’s not always clear exactly down which road the game wants you to travel. Some of the best strategy games are developed so that, in theory, any one of a plethora of strategies should be possible. Unfortunately, certain levels in Miasma Chronicles feel very prescriptive, requiring replay after replay to finally crack the very specific strategy it wanted you to use.

This could be forgiven if the game felt balanced, but far from it. For example, the tutorial shows you early on how to use guerilla warfare against your foes, picking them off with your sniper one by one to make for more manageable combat. What it doesn’t explicitly tell you is that this is just about the only way to make it through a vast majority of fights you can’t avoid in the game, with there often being a few too many enemies on the field.

Even once you’re over these early hurdles, it’s still a pretty unforgiving game

It’s not too much of a chore to creep around and pick off baddies in this way, but if you get caught or make a slight mistake, you’re either faced with reloading your save or fighting in a pretty uneven playing field. Your party has limited actions per turn, with hefty cooldowns on abilities and a limited range of movement to consider along with reloading and energy consumption - none of which are a problem for your endlessly attacking, fast-traveling enemies.

Even once you’re over these early hurdles, it’s still a pretty unforgiving game. Its skill tree is harshly weighted to only really impact gameplay much further into the game, and there’s little-to-no point in farming resources and experience - Miasma Chronicles is incredibly conservative when it comes to sharing. 

It does get better as the game progresses, but never fully finds its footing. I spent some time playing on its easy mode and found it a whole lot more enjoyable, personally - those who aren’t attempting a spartan playthrough to demonstrate gaming prowess may want to do the same. It’s worth noting that as of writing, the developers have responded to customer reviews on Steam promising updates to the game’s balance.

For as rocky and caveat-laden as my enjoyment of the world-building and gameplay were, Miasma Chronicles has an artistic lens through which it urges you to see texture and beauty in its dismal country roads.

The graphics in the game offer some truly stunning moments - though some in-combat animations can be a little stuttery and buggy. Cutscenes, however, are steeped in a thick inky vignette that draws your eyes to the scene in focus, and rich oranges and yellows burst from campfires and sunrises, contrasting a backdrop of swirling mists and the corrupted remains of places - and people - caught up in the apocalypse.

Even the inclusion of more textured, oil-painting-esque stills in the opening sequence speaks to Miasma Chronicles’ values; art and aesthetics mean something to this game. It implores you to find the beauty in its bleakness, acknowledging its contribution to the depressive narrative dystopia brings but offering levity with its imagining of how the world - and its inhabitants - choose to find and fight their battles.

Miasma Chronicles certainly has all of the components of a fantastic tactical game. From its gritty setting to its charming characters, it all lines up well... until it comes to gameplay. If you’re up for a challenge, you’ve got it - but it’s an uphill climb that’s not for everyone.  

Whether it’s the relatively barebones tutorial that skips some pretty important tactical abilities or its steep difficulty curve, it’s not for the faint-hearted. It’s not to say Miasma Chronicles lacks imagination, but it certainly lacks the tools, in places, to intelligently see through its ideas. 

However, push through (and I really do mean push) and you get to the delicious meat and bones of the game. By the time you’re 15 hours in, you’re starting to see better skill unlocks, you’ve figured out how to work around some of its quirks, and you can start to sit back and appreciate some of the better-delivered aspects of the game.

The Bill of Materials (BoM) for the base Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is just $469, according to Counterpoint’s latest research. This is for a unit with 8GB of RAM, 256GB storage and sub-6GHz 5G. The BoM for the 2022 model is unknown, but an S21 Ultra (Snapdragon 888, 128GB, mmWave) was $533 and before that the Galaxy Note20 Ultra (Snapdragon 865+, 128GB, mmWave) was $550. Qualcomm’s share of the BoM is at “an all-time high”, sitting at 34% – one percentage point higher than Samsung. A lot of that is the chipset, of course, plus the various components for wireless connectivity, but Qualcomm...

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro review: More of the same, but that’s no bad thing
3:40 pm |

Author: admin | Category: Computers Gadgets | Tags: | Comments: Off

This is a hands-on review to bring you our early impressions of the new Garmin Fenix &S Pro. Stay tuned, as we'll be expanding and updating this article with more info soon.

Garmin has unveiled its Garmin Fenix 7 Pro and Garmin Epix Pro watches. These updated versions of the Garmin Fenix 7 and Garmin Epix (Gen 2) retain everything that makes them some of the best Garmin watches, namely by changing only a few things and adding a handful of useful new features. 

We’ll dive into exactly what’s new about the Garmin Fenix 7 Pro below – and those hoping for a fully-fledged redesign a la the Garmin Forerunner 265 and 965 might come away disappointed. Those of you who already own a Fenix 7 are unlikely to feel strongly moved to buy another watch. 

But as a premium outdoors watch in its own right, the Garmin Fenix 7 Pro looks set to excel as a wonderful example of outdoor smart tech, and in our brief time with the wearable, I’ve found nothing to disprove that so far.  

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro: Price and availability

The Garmin Fenix 7 Pro comes in three sizes, like the original Garmin Fenix 7 range; a 42mm Garmin Fenix 7S Pro, in which the S denotes it being ‘small’; a 47mm Garmin Fenix 7 Pro with no size denomination,; and a 51mm 7X Pro. We tested the smaller 7S Pro. 

The Fenix 7 Pro range starts at $799.99 / £749.99 / AU$1,349.00 for the 42mm and the 47mm models, rising to $899.99 / £829.99 / AU$1,529.00 for the 51mm model. 

You’re effectively paying for more screen real estate and more impressive battery life as you go up the sizes. Whether these are worth the premium remains to be seen, and really depends on whether you’re going to get the most of the middling 47mm Fenix 7 Pro’s battery life or the Fenix 7X Pro’s enormous capacity during multi-day wilderness and trail excursions. However, if you’re the sort of person who doesn’t mind dropping a grand on an outdoors watch, you’re probably someone who’s looking to get the most out of what they buy. 

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro: Specs

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro: Design

Garmin Fenix 7S Pro

The Garmin Fenix 7 Pro looks very, very similar to the original Fenix 7, with no deviation from its classic five-button configuration. The 7S Pro that I tried was missing the visible screws attaching the bezel to the case from the regular Fenix 7 range on account of its smaller size, and comes in an attractive gold-white colorway rather than the more tactical-looking black or grey of larger watches. It looked good on my wrist, reminding me of my old Moto 360, and more elegant than a typical outdoor watch. 

However, it shares the same hardy titanium bezel and dull but economical memory-in-pixel touchscreen rather than the Epix’s gorgeous AMOLED one. For an additional fee, you can get a model with sapphire glass to ensure the screen is tough enough to withstand your outdoor adventures. Even the smaller 7S Pro now has an MIP screen equipped with Power Glass solar charging, a feature usually reserved for larger watches.  

That’s not the only hardware change. The older Fenix 7X’s LED flashlight feature has made its way onto the other sizes of the 7 Pro as well. The flashlight is operated by the top-left ‘light’ button, which is usually used to illuminate the screen, or you can access it by calling up the widget menu and using the touchscreen to select it. The light has six settings: a solid white light of four different intensities, a stroble function, or a night vision-saving red light that’s perfect for alerting passing drivers during runs, for example.

During my initial tests, I found the light perfectly satisfactory. I tested it in a dark room and, er, under my desk, eliciting a few weird looks from my colleagues. The light will clearly illuminate maybe five feet directly in front of you on its brightest setting, enough to look for a dropped phone by, and could serve as an adequate signalling tool in the dark. How much of a drain the light is on the battery is unclear.

New on the design front is also the “spacially diverse optical sensors” which now make up the Fenix 7 Pro range’s rear sensor array. Together with “sport-specific algorithms”, the watch is said to offer better tracking across different workouts, so all those different workout profiles become more meaningful, not just different labels for heart rate and calories burned. 

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro: Features

Both the Garmin Fenix 7 Pro and Epix Pro series offer two new Garmin training metrics: Endurance Score and Hill Score. Endurance Score is a numerical value calculated using consistent V02 max measurements, initially over a period of two weeks, which tells you how well your body responds to endurance training. The higher your Endurance Score, which measures how efficient you are at getting oxygen into your muscles, the longer you should be able to keep going at a particular activity. 

Hill Score is a little bit different. This is a numerical value representing your power output, or how effective your legs are at propelling you up hills. It's unclear at this stage whether this is purely for runners, or if cyclists can benefit from Hill Score too, or what existing metrics it's keyed onto. I've reached out to Garmin for more info, and I’ll update this section for my full review. Both features require data from two weeks of workouts in order to calculate your score, so having only spent an afternoon with both watches I was unable to test them. 

Elsewhere, topographical maps get a few great new upgrades, including weather services. You'll be able to tell exactly when the storm clouds are about to hit at a glance with Relief Shading, which highlights areas in different colors based on precipitation. Another cool new feature is Up Ahead, which offers trail runners and cyclists the location of Points of Interest nearby. The example Garmin gives is aid stations during a race, but we're yet to know if local landmarks can appear on this, which would make the feature useful for explorers as well as for competitors. 

A bevy of new workout profiles are also included, such as whitewater rafting, motocross, overlanding and, Garmin says, dozens more. Again, these should gain new relevance beyond labels thanks to the improved sensors and new sports-specific algorithms, but I don't know any specifics just yet – I’m looking forward to digging into some of the workout profiles to see exactly what sports-specific metrics are on offer. The standard workout screen and widget layout looks and acts the same as before: anyone who’s used a Fenix before, or any Garmin watch for that matter, will feel at home here. 

Garmin Fenix 7 Pro: Early verdict

 The Garmin Fenix 7 is already one of the best running watches and overall best smartwatches you can buy, and based on our early examinations, the Fenix 7 Pro range only improves on it.  We’ll be spending more time testing the 7S Pro in depth for our full review – time will tell if the new features are enough to merit another elusive five-star score.

The Apple AR/VR headset, reportedly named Reality Pro, will be announced on June 5. According to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the headset will have two 1.41” micro OLEDs, bringing a 4,400 ppi resolution and over 5,000 nits of brightness. In a follow-up tweet, the analyst said the resolution should be “4K per eye”. Simple math reveals that with a 1.41” diagonal and a circular/square display, the side is 1”, and the resolution is 4,000 x 4,000 pixels per display. These numbers are impressive because the Meta Quest Pro's resolution is 1,800 x 1,920 per eye,...

Realme C53 launches with 6.74″ display and 5,000mAh battery

Realme just launched the C53 in Malaysia – a large, affordable handset for the entry-level segment. It’s already available through Lazada at MYR 550 with 6/128GB configuration. For comparison, the slightly more capable C55 sells for MYR 700 with the same memory configuration. We’ll let you in on a little secret – the Realme C53 is essentially identical to the Realme Narzo N53 that launched in India a couple of weeks ago. That one had a 4/64GB base model, but the 6/128GB one is priced at INR 11,000, which converts to $133. The price of the C53 is slightly lower in US dollars, $120. Here’s...

Netgear Nighthawk M6 Pro Wi-Fi Router Review
1:09 pm |

Author: admin | Category: Computers Gadgets | Comments: Off

Two-minute review

Netgear’s Orbi range of mesh Wi-Fi router systems already includes a model that can use 5G mobile broadband as a fail-safe option if you ever lose your standard broadband connection. However, the company also makes several dedicated mobile routers as part of its high-performance Nighthawk brand, which can provide a quick and easy Wi-Fi network when traveling or working outdoors or just in case of a sudden broadband outage at home or in the office.

The latest addition to the Nighthawk range is the Nighthawk M6 Pro. It’s a top-of-the-range option – with a top-of-the-range price to match – but it supports both 5G mobile broadband and the latest Wi-Fi 6E technology. This allows it to create its own Wi-Fi network using the new 6.0GHz frequency band and the standard 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands used by Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 routers. It also provides high-speed wired connections too, via both Ethernet and USB-C. The built-in rechargeable battery should last for around 13 hours, so you can easily get a full day’s work from the M6 Pro when you’re traveling, and a mains adaptor is also included for indoor use.

The compact M6 Pro is undoubtedly well suited to life on the road. The square black casing measures just 105mm on either side and 21.5mm thick and only weighs 256g, so you can easily slip it into a bag alongside your laptop while traveling. It feels pretty sturdy, so it should be tough enough to cope with a few bumps. The back of the router can be removed to install the rechargeable battery and your 5G SIM, and the battery charges via a USB-C connector on the bottom edge of the router.

The front panel includes a 2.8-inch LCD with touch-screen controls that provide quick access to the router’s various settings, and the main Home screen can display a QR code that lets you quickly connect a smartphone or tablet to the M6 Pro’s Wi-Fi network.


5G Mobile Broadband: 8Gbps (US); 4Gbps (UK) 

Wi-Fi: dual-band Wi-Fi 6E @ 3.6Gbps

Connectivity: 1x 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, 1x USB-C

Processor: Qualcomm SDX65

Display: 2.7-inch LCD, touch-sensitive

Battery: up to 13 hours, 5040mAh Li-ion

Dimensions: 105 x 105 x 21.5mm, 0.256kg

There are several other mobile routers in the Nighthawk range, so the defining feature of the M6 Pro is its support for Wi-Fi 6E, which adds the new 6.0GHz frequency band to the standard 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands supported by older routers. But, unlike a conventional Wi-Fi 6E router, the mobile M6 Pro cannot transmit ‘tri-band’ Wi-Fi on all three rounds simultaneously. 

By default, the router transmits Wi-Fi on just the 5.0GHz band to save power and provide compatibility with a wide range of computers and mobile devices. If you’re lucky enough to have a shiny new laptop or smartphone with Wi-Fi 6E, switch the router to the 6.0GHz band instead. The router also supports the older 2.4GHz band used by older computers and some smart-home devices, such as bright lights and speakers that are limited to 2.4GHz (yes, Sonos, we’re looking at you…). The M6 Pro can switch into dual-band mode here, transmitting on both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands or 2.4GHz and 6.0GHz, although using dual-band Wi-Fi like this may drain the battery more quickly.


The M56 Pro isn’t limited to 5G connectivity and provides beneficial wired networking options. It has a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port allows you to connect it to high-speed broadband connections at home or in an office. Alternatively, you can use the M6 Pro more like a range extender, connecting it to your broadband router via Wi-Fi and then moving the portable M6 Pro into another room or office that might have weak Wi-Fi. In that situation, you can use the Ethernet port to provide a fast, wired network connection for a laptop or desktop PC. On the other hand, if your computer doesn’t include an Ethernet port, you can also get a wired connection by using the USB-C port on the M6 Pro. This ensures the router provides a wide range of wired and wireless networking options for indoor and outdoor use.

Netgear Nighthawk M6 Pro

The M6 Pro also can switch between networking modes automatically. When traveling, you can set it to rely purely on 5G mobile broadband, but when you’re indoors, you can put it to use either ‘Ethernet+Cellular’ or ‘Wi-Fi+Cellular.’ This tells the router to use your standard broadband connection when available – saving you money on your mobile broadband plan – and then switch to 5G if that’s not available. 

These features and settings are all straightforward to use via the router’s touch-screen controls, and we also like the fact that there’s a web browser interface with additional features available for IT managers or more experienced home users. 

Our only complaint is that Netgear’s documentation isn’t beneficial for less experienced users. The Quickstart guide included with the M6 Pro assumes that you’ve installed the battery and SIM card and successfully connected the router to your 5G mobile network. However, we had problems with the EE mobile network as the router’s Settings menu told us we first needed to select an ‘APN’ – access point name – for our network. Several preset APNs were already available in the Settings menu, but none were labeled ‘EE.’ Netgear informed us that an existing APN labeled ‘everywhere’ was the correct choice for using our EE SIM, but that wasn’t made clear in the Quickstart guide. Hence, Netgear needs to make the initial set-up process more transparent for people who may not have used a mobile router before.

Performance and Battery Life

Thankfully, it worked smoothly and performed well once we connected the M6 Pro to our 5G mobile network. Oddly, the M6 Pro model sold in the UK has a top speed of 4.0Gbps when connecting to mobile broadband, while the US version steps up to 8.0Gbps. However, US and UK models transmit their Wi-Fi signal with the same maximum speed of 3.6Gbps. US customers don’t necessarily have that much of an advantage – especially given the variation in 5G speed and coverage in different locations.

The EE mobile network in the UK indicated a typical speed of 58.5Mbps for our location in a heavily built-up part of London, and we nudged slightly past that with the rate provided by the M6 Pro settling at a consistent 60Mbps as we wandered around with it during the day. That’s not quite as fast as our regular office broadband, but it’s more than adequate for web browsing, email, and even the occasional video call at work.

As mentioned, the rechargeable battery provided with the M6 Pro should last for around 13 hours when using the default 5.0GHz band. However, you can also use the touch-screen controls to adjust the router settings to provide either maximum Wi-Fi speed or longer battery life. There are preset options for balancing performance, range, and battery life, and you can also adjust other settings, such as Standby time for turning off the LCD screen or putting the M6 Pro to sleep if there are no devices currently using its Wi-Fi network. 

Price and Availability

  • How much does it cost? Unlocked - £899.99 / $999.99
  • When is it available? Available now
  • Where can you get it? US, UK, EU

With so many advanced broadband and mobile connectivity features, it’s no surprise that the M6 Pro comes with a pretty hefty price tag. An unlocked router version suitable for most mobile networks costs £899.99 in the UK or $999.99 in the US. Customers in the US may also be able to buy the router from their existing mobile provider at a lower price – although, of course, this will be locked and only suitable for use with that provider. This Wi-Fi 6E model isn’t currently available in Australia, though.

  • Value: 3.5/5
