Tablet that you can draw on: The best tablets with a stylus pen for drawing and writing

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra review

Our Verdict

Incredibly slim, sleek design, a brilliant, punchy screen that’s expansive – perfect for watching, photo editing, or sketching on, and plenty of power help Samsung’s novel, niche, attention-grabbingly big Tab S8 Ultra stand out – if you can fit it into your workflow. The iPad supports more creative apps and has a brighter display, but can’t compete when it comes to size and versatility.

For
  • Stunning, bold, vibrant display
  • Incredibly slim design
  • S Pen included with tablet
  • Powerful software
Against
  • Fewer creative apps than iPad
  • Large size can be unwieldy

Why you can trust Creative Bloq
Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

TODAY’S BEST DEALS

Samsung’s Tab S8 Ultra is the biggest tablet we’ve ever seen. The largest iPad Pro screen is 12.9 inches; Samsung’s Tab S8 Ultra is 14.6 inches. Samsung’s clearly pushing the bar when it comes to tablet size, but bigger isn’t always better.

No tablet has truly been able to beat the iPad Pro for creatives. That isn’t down to the iPad being larger, having a better screen or a more premium design – it’s down to apps. Apple’s AppStore features more high-quality creative apps than Android’s Google Play Store – it’s that simple.

Samsung isn’t taking defeat lying down though. For starters, by making the Tab S8 Ultra so big, Samsung’s putting Apple on the back foot – the iPad line simply can’t compete when it comes to size. Next, the developers behind Lumafusion have announced (but not yet delivered) a version of its app for the Tab S8 series.

With Samsung’s AMOLED screen technology, which is incredibly deep, vibrant, and rich, as well as an S Pen in the box and loads of software smarts, can Samsung’s latest slate finally topple the iPad Pro’s creative reign? (We go into more depth in our Apple vs Samsung feature. )

(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (128GB) at Amazon for £1,199

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra may be a massive tablet with a huge footprint, but it is also ridiculously slim. At just 5.5mm thin, it feels like a sliver of tech. Despite its waif-like profile, thanks to its Armor Aluminum body, it’s robust, and weighing 728g, feels solid in the hand.

The front of the tab really is all-screen, with two selfie cameras nuzzled in a notch that cuts into the screen ever so slightly. Unlike the iPad line, the front cameras are on the long side of the Tab S8 Ultra, which makes the tab much better for video calls in landscape orientation. The fingerprint scanner lives under the display on the right side of the tab.

Around the sides of the Tab S8 Ultra are a USB-C port for data and charging, speaker holes micro-drilled into the metal frame, and a volume and power button. As for the back, it’s all matte metal, a camera bump, and a glass strip where the S Pen magnetically clings onto the slate, wirelessly charging in the process.  

With only one colour option available – Graphite – style flourishes can be added with a third-party case. An official Tab S8 Ultra keyboard folio case is available at $349.99, and you can also pick up a folio case, however, these are all available in black. 

(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)

We neither love nor hate the Tab S8 Ultra’s utilitarian aesthetic. Its matte metal looks premium out of the box, but clings onto fingerprints, albeit more subtly than glossy glass. The Tab doesn’t look quite as good as an iPad from the back, but it does feel incredibly special given how slim and solid it is. From the front, it’s also a sight to behold thanks to that brilliant AMOLED screen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: screen

When we fired up a 4K video of Tokyo city on the Tab S8 Ultra and showed it to some friends in a dimly-lit room, they were convinced it was a 3D screen. That’s how striking the Ultra’s display is. 

Unlike iPads, which use LCD screens, the Tab S8 Ultra features the largest AMOLED screen to grace any tablet to date. That means its blacks are deeper and inkier, its colours richer and more eye-grabbing, and its contrast-levels superior. If you want a tablet for movies and watching content on, this is it. 

Another boon for movie watchers is the Tab S8 Ultra’s aspect ratio. While iPads are a bit more square, with a 4:3 aspect ratio (the same as a traditional photograph), the Tab S8 Ultra’s screen is 16:10 – just a little wider than Full HD. That means whether you’re watching a Netflix series in Full HD, or a feature film in 21:9, the iPad will always display massive black bars on either side of the picture. The Tab S8 series, on the other hand, will not. 

(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)

Just like the iPad Pro (not the iPad Air), the Tab S8 Ultra’s screen is a silky smooth 120Hz refresh rate. This means menus and feeds scroll smoothly, adding a real sense of speed to the whole user interface.

There’s one area Samsung’s flagship tab falls behind the iPad, and that’s brightness. While the iPad Pro climbs to 1000 nits and higher, the Tab S8 Ultra caps out at around 420 nits. This is more than bright enough for easy watching, notetaking and working indoors and in overcast outdoor spaces, but if you tend to use your tablet outdoors in bright environments, viewability might be an issue. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: S Pen and creative apps

Unlike iPads, the whole Tab S8 series ships with a pen in the box – specifically, an S Pen. This Samsung stylus is a touch shorter than the Apple Pencil, and it feels more natural on first use given the softer, more pen-like tip. It also uses Wacom tech and supports up to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity with tilt recognition – and it works great.

Image 1 of 4

(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)

Every S Pen has a button near the tip-side. This either activates an eraser in the notes app, a shutter release in the camera app, or Air Commands across various apps – so you can control apps with a hand wave, pen in toe. This makes the S Pen more versatile and intuitive than Apple’s pencil, but with moving parts and a more fragile nib, it’s also less premium.  

Pre-installed software that helps you get the most out of the S Pen includes Samsung Notes – a capable notetaking and sketching app that can turn your handwritten notes into text, ClipStudio – a sketching tool with layer support and loads of brush options, and there’s a handwriting keyboard too. 

Third-party S Pen apps are also available – Autodesk Sketchbook, Concepts, and Wacom Bamboo Paper to name a few. However, these aren’t a patch on some of the finest iPad apps like Good Notes and ProCreate, which ultimately offer a higher quality experience. While you can get core Adobe apps like Lightroom for the Tab S8 Ultra, unfortunately, the full suite of iPad apps – including Adobe Fresco, isn’t available for Android just yet. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: performance and camera

Top-tier power and ridiculously smart software mean the Tab S8 Ultra is a beast when it comes to productivity and performance. 

DeX is Samsung’s desktop interface for Android phones and tablets. It fires up on the Tab S8 Ultra’s mammoth display, or when you connect the S8 Ultra to an external display. Connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and you can work across multiple windows with ease, making the oversized tablet feel like a traditional Windows or MacOS-style device.

You can also use the Tab S8 series as an extended monitor for your Windows 11 computer too, and with its ample display, it’s a perfect companion for a 15-inch laptop, giving you a portable, dual-display setup when out and about. 

The Tab S8 Ultra’s camera mix beats out most tablets, even if it falls behind today’s flagship smartphones. Both the front and the back feature two cameras, wide and ultra-wide modules. The rear cameras are the superior shooters given the fact they pack autofocus, making them more versatile. That said, Samsung adds a cool feature to the selfie cameras – auto-framing. Like Apple’s Centre Stage, this automatically frames the video with you in the center, even if you move around a bit.  

The tablet’s large, 11,200mAh battery keeps the tablet alive for around nine hours of video playback, and a comfortable couple of days with moderate use. It charges at 45W with a  compatible charger, but you’ll have to pick one up separately given the fact Samsung’s latest phones and tablets don’t ship with power bricks.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: verdict

Thanks to its stunning screen quality and 16:10 aspect ratio, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the best tablet for watching content on. Its design is also mind-bogglingly slim given the power inside, and the fact it ships with a pen is great. 

The Tab S8 Ultra costs $1,099/£1,149, making it a much better buy in the US than in the UK. That said, it’s roughly the same price as an iPad Pro 12.9, so it’s a direct competitor. 

(Image credit: Basil Kronfli)

For anyone after a creative tablet first and foremost, the iPad Pro is the better option thanks to its far superior app support. This is especially true if you’re a Mac user who can take advantage of Apple’s cross-device integration.

However, if you have a Windows 11 laptop and an Android phone, and want the biggest, best companion device money can buy, the oversized Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a marvel of modern technology. It pushes boundaries, and gives you more screen (and in turn, canvas) than anything else on the market – so if you can fit it into your workflow, you won’t find anything else that can offer what it can.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

Incredibly slim, sleek design, a brilliant, punchy screen that’s expansive – perfect for watching, photo editing, or sketching on, and plenty of power help Samsung’s novel, niche, attention-grabbingly big Tab S8 Ultra stand out – if you can fit it into your workflow. The iPad supports more creative apps and has a brighter display, but can’t compete when it comes to size and versatility.

Huawei Matepad 11 review | Creative Bloq

Our Verdict

The Huawei MatePad 11 has some eye-catching tech and a good overall level of sophistication many tablets miss at this entry-level price point. The screen is incredibly vibrant and at 120Hz betters its Apple rival and proves an excellent tablet for sketching on the go. So what’s the downside? Huawei has overcome its Google ban admirably with a APK direct download solution, but it’s still lacking many mainstream apps, particularly for art working. Huawei’s own suite of workplace apps are excellent, however, and you can pair the Huawei Matepad 11 to a laptop and use it as a pen display – another creative workaround. If you’re on a budget, or a student looking for a good tablet for drawing, the Huawei MatePad 11 is a very good option.

For
  • Brilliant screen
  • Excellent stylus
  • Can be paired to a laptop
  • Good value for money
Against
  • Still no Google connectivity
  • You’re tied to Huawei’s apps

TODAY’S BEST DEALS

The Huawei MatePad 11 is an impressive and fairly inexpensive tablet that has a lot going for it. It’s held back by one thing: global politics. Back in 2019 Huawei found itself caught up in Donald Trump’s grandstanding with China, meaning the tech company has been banned by Google from using its apps and services. Kind of a problem when you’re launching tablets and phones.

In recent years there has been some cooling and many companies are back working with Huawei, if only on a short term and limited basis, and Google has yet to reopen its services. That’s the background bit, so what about the tablet?

Much of the joy of the Matepad 11 comes from the high-end tech and Huawei’s neat workarounds

The Huawei Matepad 11 is actually a top piece of tech, with a bright 120Hz Huawei FullView display – making it ideal for art and gaming. Audio comes from quad speakers and a 7,250mAh battery that lasts a good 12 hours. The Snapdragon 865 CPU may not be the most powerful around but it does the trick for most apps, and Huawei has a neat workaround – you can use Huawei Share to pair with your laptop or desktop to use a second screen or pen display.

Much of the joy of the Huawei Matepad 11 comes from the high-end tech and Huawei’s neat workarounds to ensure this tablet is fully usable. If you want to see what the rivals are up to, take a look at our guide to the best Apple iPad for drawing, and our list of the best tablets for drawing.

For this review I spent two weeks with the Huawei MatePad 11, testing its basic uses, app connectivity, and how it measures up as a tablet for drawing. I used Autodesk Sketchbook and Infinite Painter to test the tablet and stylus performance.

Huawei Matepad 11 review: the setup

Setting up the Huawei Matepad 11 is very easy but you’ll need to get used to its approach to installing Android apps (Image credit: Future)

The Huawei Matepad 11 comes bundled with the M-Pencil stylus and keyboard. My review model only came with the M-Pencil. The setup is easy and approachable, as you would expect from a device of this kind. You’re onboarded easily through a list of sign-up forms and training screens – I particularly like how the Huawei Matepad 11 takes me through its various gesture controls, hidden panels and option menus both when using your fingers or the M-Pencil.

The tablet will continue to gently nudge you to do things the right way too, such as how to store the M-Pencil for better charging. Everything is seamless and easy to understand, it’s the kind of UX approach lower-priced devices overlook.

The workaround is to search for apps in Huawei’s Petal Search browser instead of the app store, once found you can download the APK file

Searching for, and downloading, apps to the Huawei Matepad 11 requires a little more understanding – but not too much. Huawei’s own AppGallery has some big name games, such as Call of Duty: Mobile and PUBG Mobile, but many of the apps you’ll want are missing, or there are Huawei-fied versions. I did find and download Autodesk Sketchbook and Infinite Painter – both excellent – but you’ll miss Procreate, Photoshop and broader apps.

The workaround is to search for apps in Huawei’s Petal Search browser instead of the app store, once found you can download the APK file and open; this is great for free apps but paid software can’t be installed in this way.

Despite the Google ban, you can still run and login to your Google Chrome account as a browser but not from an installed Chrome app. It’s a weird halfway house that means some Google features are accessible but not the Google Play Store or your app library.

The Huawei Matepad 11 is slim and light. The tablet’s screen dimensions make it ideal for sketching and watching movies (Image credit: Future)

The Huawei Matepad 11 is slim and neat, with narrow bezels and a slender general look and feel. It’s light in the hand too, likely due to its plastic case, but it ensures you can hold it and sketch without feeling too cumbersome. The Huawei Matepad 11 is closer in feel and design to an iPad or iPad Pro, especially compared to other low-cost Android tablets.

The Apple comparisons are slightly off, however, as the 253.8 x 165.3 x 7.3mm dimension offers a thin tablet that is slightly higher than it is wide; it’s not as ‘square’ as an iPad. Again, this makes it nice to hold and draw, and perfect for landscapes. It’s also a perfect size ratio for media streaming; handily Netflix, Disney Plus and Amazon Prime video apps are all on Huawei AppGallery. Oddly BBC Sounds is but iPlayer isn’t.

The Huawei Matepad 11 is slim and slender, making it ideal for packing into a college bag or holiday hand luggage (Image credit: Future)

There are some design choices that are made, such as the front facing camera that’s on the longer horizontal bezel, so when it’s attached to the keyboard-stand it sits in the correct place. While there is a USB-C port there’s no headphone jack. 

This is not the end of the world, and actually if you’re using a tablet in one hand and drawing or using the touchscreen the last thing you need is a cable cluttering the screen – bluetooth wireless headphones work perfectly with the Huawei Matepad 11.

Overall the Huawei Matepad 11 feels premium and even after two weeks of regular use never scratched. The plastic case may be a little low-budget compared to Apple devices, but it’s a hit I’d take for the light-weight feel and ability to soak up a bump or two.

Huawei Matepad 11 review: performance

While you can’t install premium art and video editing apps, there is a workaround for some Android apps (Image credit: Future)

Technically Huawei Matepad 11 doesn’t run on Android, but rather on Huawei’s own HarmonyOS. This has been born out of necessity as Huawei aims to get its hardware back into US hands – UK tech-lovers have always been able to buy Huawei products. HarmonyOS is a neat solution, it looks like Android, behaves like Android, and is compatible with most Android apps – those as mentioned earlier not all are available on the AppGallery but downloads from the browser (it’s hidden inside AppGallery so you don’t notice).

The US ban is actually forcing a ‘third way’ for tablets. Huawei holds second place of market share, behind Apple and ahead of Samsung, and Huawei Matepad 11 is proving there’s room for this new branch. HarmonyOS is actually developed from open source code, meaning it’s technically an Android fork and not a brand new OS. What does this all mean for users? It means Huawei Matepad 11 runs fast, smoothly and will run most of the apps you’ll have on a tablet.

Huawei has its own set of pre-installed apps to aid you in most tasks, for example the core WPS app contains word and PDF editors, and tools for creating and editing spreadsheets and presentations. Other apps include those for fitness, video and music. A free 5GB of cloud storage with the device. Let me just say Huawei has learned a lot from Google.

The M-Pencil comes packaged with the Huawei Matepad 11, and it’s an excellent stylus for sketching and digital art (Image credit: Future)

Using the Huawei Matepad 11 is tactile and speedy. You can whizz through previous screens with swipes, access control panels similarly. Page icons are easily visible but it takes some time to get used to the specifics of HarmonyOS and it’s naming conventions. Everything reads like a made-up app you’d find in a movie from 2002, for example FaceTime becomes MeeTime.

For this review I tested Autodesk Sketchbook and Infinity Painter on the Huawei Matepad 11 and both run exceptionally well; there’s no crashing, freezing or lag. Of course, these are fairly lightweight apps but it works smoothly none-the-less. 

When sketching and painting on the Huawei Matepad 11 the experience is excellent. The M-Pencil glides across the screen wonderfully and while some may miss the ‘tooth’ of a proper pen display it feels good.

The M-Pencil itself is very good; its 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity are comparable to the best stylus on the market, including Apple Pencil 2, and it apes the pen’s double-tap for tool swapping. I love using the M-Pencil and find it very accurate and couldn’t see any discernible lag. 

The only grip I have is the super-smooth finish, while looks great, can slip and slide the hand. While the M-Pencil has a hexagonal design the edges are smoothed, resulting it a slightly slippery feel.

Huawei Matepad 11 review: display

The 120Hz display may not be OLED but that refresh rate makes it a class leader at this price (Image credit: Future)

A special mention goes to the Huawei Matepad 11’s display – it’s wonderful. At 11 inches diagonally and featuring a 2560 x 1600 resolution this screen also has a refresh rate of 120Hz – this is exceptional. It outclasses other tablets in its price range, and even gives some of its higher-priced rivals, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, a run for their money.

To be clear, you won’t get another 120Hz display for this price anywhere else. Gamers and artists should pay attention, particularly as Huawei can run the Xbox app for streaming and connect to a laptop via Huawei Share.

It’s worth noting the Huawei Matepad 11 has an LCD panel and not an OLED screen, which is great for everyday use as it’s easier to see in daylight conditions and direct sunlight, but will miss the deeper colour definition and solid darks of an OLED screen.

Huawei Matepad 11 review: price

The Huawei Matepad 11 comes complete with a keyboard and stylus, and at this price point is excellent value  (Image credit: Future)

At £449 the Huawei Matepad 11 is a nicely priced tablet, particularly considering the quality of the screen, speakers and general speed you get for most apps. Connectivity to a laptop gives it an extra dimension for anyone wishing to use this as a pen display. The price also includes the M-Pencil and Huawei Smart keyboard, and the stylus on its own will cost £99.99.

Huawei currently has some good deals on the Huawei Matepad 11, for example buyers can get the Huawei FreeBuds for £169.99 £59.99 and Huawei Bluetooth Mouse £49.99 £9.99.

Currently you still can’t buy Huawei in the US, though Amazon does offer some Huawei phones for US customers so perhaps eventually it may happen and the Huawei Matepad 11 will be available. It should be, as consumers demand choice and the quality of Huawei Matepad 11, at this price, offers a distinct ‘third way’ for tablets.

Huawei Matepad 11 review: should I buy one?

The Huawei Matepad 11 is technically an excellent tablet but it still lacks Google connectivity, which can restrict its apps (Image credit: Future)

At this price, outside of the US, the Huawei Matepad 11 is recommended. If you’re a student or at school and need a good tablet for less than an Apple or Samsung equivalent the this is for you. If you’re a pro artist, the option to connect the Huawei Matepad 11 to a PC or laptop and use it as a pen display is encouraging (though I couldn’t connect to Mac for this review).

The downside to the current situation Huawei is in, is the lack of Google and proper Android compatibility means this tablet can feel constrained at times. The HarmonyOS workaround of downloading APKs is good, but again not every app can be used this way – you will miss Adobe and Corel, for example, ensuring some premium apps for artwork and video editing are missing. In which case you may want to pay extra $200 / £200 and opt for an Apple iPad Air (5th Gen).

If you’re unsure then take a look into our guide for the best tablets with a pen and stylus, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a better tablet at this price. The only question is, can you live without Google?

for drawing is critical so that you can bring your artistic
ideas to life. Whether it’s painting, retouching and image editing
or animation, there are many solutions available to you.

In years past, the best drawing tablets were limited to
only graphics tablets, which required wires and external screens, and
the artist was tied to a single workplace. Artists are currently

Both pen tablets and the vast majority of interactive tablets need to be connected to a PC or laptop, so if you need a more portable device for working outside the workplace, we would recommend one of the best tablets from Apple, Microsoft and Samsung, they promise to be the best option. Some of these tablets are listed below, and while they have fewer drawing features, they are highly portable and have the day-to-day functions of a full-fledged computer.

Check out our ranking of the best laptops and tablets for drawing.

1. Wacom Cintiq 22


The ultimate drawing tablet – big, bright and beautiful.

Active drawing area: 49.5 x 29.2 cm | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (FHD) | Battery powered: No | Stylus pressure sensitivity: 8192 levels | Connection: HDMI, USB 2.0.

Pros :

  • Great drawing experience;
  • Quality stylus;
  • Robust yet elegant design;

Cons :

  • No shortcut buttons;

Wacom is a big name in digital art and this
reputation is well deserved. Thanks to its excellent pressure sensitivity, the available
artist-oriented prices and features only in recent years
competing companies managed to compete with Wacom. Wacom Cintiq-
it’s a graphics tablet with a screen, and also Wacom’s answer to
competing general purpose tablets such as the iPad. You get a thoughtful tablet
for drawing with a large area for creativity, and we believe that this is the best
in its versatility, an option with a wonderful price, design and set
functions.

Considering tablet size, performance and resolution,
its price remains competitive and while other tablets and laptops
able to offer a bit more in terms of graphic work, a large
panel provides detailed operation on a smoother user interface.
interface. The 22-inch panel provides artists with enough room to
work; but even the smaller 15.6-inch panel is oversized and
the quality of most other tablets on this list. It is equipped with folding
legs that feel solid and reliable to use, they are neatly
attached to the back of the device, and you can also attach to
third-party tablet stand.

Cintiq is perfect for all artists – from hobbyists to
professionals – and, despite the fairly affordable price, offers
really impressive drawing possibilities. The tablet has incredible
high resolution 5080 LPI,
and in combination with the wonderful Wacom Pro Pen 2 stylus, which understands 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and
Considered to be the best stylus available, the tablet is only as good as
is it even possible. The only downside is the lack of buttons.
quick access, but you can always purchase the Wacom ExpressKey Remote
separately.

2. XP pen
Artist Pro 16


The best drawing tablet – professional quality at an attractive price.

Active drawing area: 34 x 19.3 cm | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (FHD) | Battery powered: No | Stylus pressure sensitivity: 8192 levels | Connection: USB-C.

Pros :

  • Excellent stylus;
  • Supplied with accessories;
  • Very affordable price;

Cons :

  • The stand is separate and feels cheap;

XP Pen –
one of Wacom’s main competitors,
offering tablets cheaper while still maintaining high performance
and design quality. The XP-Pen Artist Pro interactive display is lightweight and customizable with eight
programmable buttons that allow you to display the most frequently
functions used. There is also a dual control dial used for
panning, scrolling, zooming, or resizing the brush.

This tablet features a bright, fully laminated 1920 FHD panel
x 1080, and is also available in a variety of sizes – from miniature
11.6-inch to massive 21.5-inch screen. XP-Pen is also planning a 23.8-inch model soon.
Maybe big screens are too heavy and small ones don’t have enough space, but
artist
Pro 16 especially
good for mobile artists.

XP-Pen Artist Pro 16 comes with an XP-Pen stylus that, thanks to the modern
intelligent chip X3
provides high performance – 8192 levels of sensitivity to
pressure and angle evaluation up to 60 degrees. However, it falls short of the Wacom Pro Pen 2 when it comes to responsiveness.
on tilt and the feel of drawing. It also comes with a separate stand for
a tablet (a little flimsy), a drawing glove and a comfortable, sturdy holder
for styluses.

For your money, the entire series of Artist Pro graphics tablets offers
excellent value for money, but you can get even more value with
regular discounts and sales that you will meet throughout the year. AND
while Artist Pro offers the best quality and features available in this
price point, the tablet feels a bit cheap and offers not the best
stylus/drawing feel, so the Cintiq easily outcompetes the competition.

3. iPad Pro
12.9 M1 (2021)


The best all-around tablet for both drawing and everyday use.

Active drawing area: 26.2 x 19.7 cm | Resolution: 2732 x 2048 (XDR) | Battery powered: Yes | Stylus pressure sensitivity: unverified (requires Apple Pencil, optional) | Connectivity: Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi.

Pros:

  • Incredibly powerful tool for content creators;
  • Portable tablet;
  • Beautiful OLED display;

Cons :

  • More expensive than graphics tablets;
  • No stand and accessories included;

Without a shadow of a doubt, the iPad Pro is the best general purpose tablet
for drawing, and his latest 12. 9-inch model with M1 is a real gift for artists,
offering plenty of power, a great display, and a decent canvas size.
In addition, it is extremely portable, which cannot be said about competitors; How
mentioned earlier, all graphics tablets and tablets with interactive
screens must be connected to external devices.

And while iPad Air
(fifth place in our ranking of the best drawing tablets) lighter and
More affordable, the iPad Pro stands out with its bright 12.9-inch mini-LED (Liquid Retina XDR) panel. Of course, you can choose the 11-inch iPad Pro, which will be slightly
smaller and cheaper, but it has a simple screen that’s not that impressive.

The image is updated twice as fast as on
most other tablets, thanks to the iPad Pro’s 120Hz refresh rate, which means that
you have an extremely fast and responsive drawing canvas at your fingertips.
Add to that the impressive pressure sensitivity of the Apple Pencil 2, which will have to
buy separately, but the iPad Pro becomes a serious contender. The only thing not
missing is the tactile finish of the screen for a real pen-feel
paper, but you can fix this shortcoming by purchasing a protective film with
paper texture.

iPad Pro,
equipped with M1 chip,
is the most powerful tablet for drawing and image editing.
Plus, iPadOS is compatible with a range of creative apps so you don’t have to.
so much limited than on other tablets.

While the new 2022 iPad Pro model offers certain benefits, it should be noted that
that for artists there are not many changes regarding the 2021 tablet, therefore
we recommend keeping an eye out for discounts on the iPad Pro M1 (2021).

4. Xencelabs
Pen Tablet Medium Bundle


The best graphics tablet: no display, no problem.

Active drawing area: 26.1 x 14.7 cm | Battery powered: Yes | Stylus pressure sensitivity: 8192 levels | Connection: USB-C to USB-A.

Plus :

  • Fully customizable keys;
  • Very tactile key response;

Cons :

  • The bundled double cable is not flexible enough;

Although Xencelabs is not widely known
manufacturer, the company has undoubtedly made an impact on the industry since 2021,
when Xencelabs Pen Tablet came out. Unlike our top three offerings,
that offer integrated panels, the Xencelabs Pen Tablet is a regular
graphics tablet that requires an external monitor, which makes the tablet
the best choice for those users who are more concerned about the fragile stylus,
than panels, as well as for users who are trying to meet the limited
budget. When it comes to expectations from a graphics tablet, it meets all
requirements, combining elegant and reliable design, portability and
performance at a reasonable price.

The tablet is ergonomically designed with a comfortable curved
front panel, which cannot be said about competing drawing tablets,
resistance is like real paper, easy to draw. In addition to the
tablet comes with two styluses without batteries that can be
program individually, along with 8192 levels of sensitivity to
pressure and a pencil case for them.

Also available with adjustable remote control
with shortcut keys, which in itself is a unique feature,
that differentiates the Xencelabs Pen Tablet from competing offerings. AND
while the tablet is quite light and easy to transport, individual elements
mean that you have to take into account two additional components; but this
a small price for a comprehensive and high-quality setup.

5. iPad Air
(2022, 5 Gen)


The best drawing tablet for hobbyists – powerful, portable.

Active drawing area: 24.6 x 17.8 mm | Resolution: 2350 x 1640 | Battery powered: Yes | Stylus pressure sensitivity: unverified (requires Apple Pencil, optional) | Connectivity: USB-C, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.

Pros:

  • M1 chip provides performance;
  • Excellent display;
  • Portable tablet;

Cons :

  • No Thunderbolt 4;
  • The working canvas is not particularly large;

This is not an iPad Pro,
but the iPad Air is an extremely respectable choice for digital artists.
and given the substantially lower price tag, it’s a great option for hobbyists.
It still works on the M1 chip,
very powerful and smooth in creative applications, meanwhile the LCD panel with
2360 x 1640 resolution provides decent brightness and smoothness.

Like Pro,
it is portable and offers more flexibility than traditional graphic
tablets. You can use it for work and play, and then for
creativity, so we have here an excellent choice for emerging artists and
lovers.

The drawing experience on the iPad Air remains excellent in many ways
thanks to its compatibility with Apple Pencil
2, which is sold separately. As we mentioned above when discussing Pro, iPadOS is compatible
with a huge number of creative applications, which means that the choice is yours
spoils, nothing like traditional graphics tablets offer.

Read the full iPad Air (2022) review .

6. Wacom Intuos Pro


The best drawing tablet for professional artists – the industry leader.

Active drawing area: 22.4 x 14.8 mm | Battery powered: Yes | Stylus pressure sensitivity: 8192 levels | Connection: USB, Bluetooth.

Pros:

  • Natural drawing experience;
  • Sensitive stylus tracking without delay;
  • Works with both wireless and cable;

Cons:

  • Bluetooth can slow down;

Wacom Intuos Pro is the ideal device for most professional
illustrators thanks to fantastic stylus tracking with virtually no
latency, tilt and pressure sensitivity (8192 levels) with excellent
drawing surface. In addition, Wacom sells a variety of sheets with
textures if you want smoother or rougher resistance.

Intuos Pro is thin yet durable, making it easy to carry around and also
It has a variety of ports for easy connection. User
tidy workplaces will be pleased to know that Intuos Pro also supports
wireless Bluetooth connection;

How do we test drawing tablets?

In order to select the best drawing tablets, we reviewed
devices from major and smaller manufacturers, from Wacom and XP-Pen to Xencelabs and
general purpose manufacturers such as Apple and Microsoft. First of all
we used Adobe Creative Cloud software, the core ecosystem of most
professionals, but we also pay attention to free popular
programs such as Kitra and GIMP,
with different budgets.

Then we draw, write and experiment with
tablet to see how natural it is, identify any glitches to
make sure it is suitable for use in long sessions.

How to choose the best drawing tablet?

The most important thing when choosing a drawing tablet is to consider
art process needs: how, where and when do you like to draw?

If you like to draw on the go, no limits,
any cables, screens and computer, we would recommend using
a general purpose tablet like the iPad Pro or Surface Pro 8, which provide greater portability and
compatibility, while maintaining a quality drawing experience and a reasonable price.

If you care about price but don’t mind some
difficulties in learning, the best option would be a graphics tablet, which,
is generally more reliable. More delicate feather pads may lose
points in the portability department, but they offer the best drawing experience,
offering artists the feeling of drawing with pen on paper while supporting
artistic approach with its design and functions.

Which is better: graphics tablet, interactive or regular
tablet?

There is no definite answer to this question, which tablet for
drawing better depends on the artist to the artist and his needs. That’s why
it is important to understand the difference between each type of tablet.

Graphic tablets are the most affordable option,
because they require much less hardware. As a rule, they
react with great precision – if, of course, you can get used to looking
on the screen while drawing. Since they do not come with an integrated
screen, they are also more reliable. Thus, graphics tablets are
ideal choice for users who travel frequently, if you have
access to an external monitor or laptop that you can connect to
tablet.

Pen (interactive) tablets are significantly more expensive and
much more fragile, but it is much easier to master them in use, you do not have to
rely on custom buttons and labels for canvas navigation. Some
high-end interactive screens come with integrated
operating systems, which means you don’t have to plug them into
computer or laptop; but this entails significant costs.

General purpose tablets – much more traditional
multi-purpose tablets from manufacturers such as Apple, Microsoft and Samsung, which can also be
use as drawing tablets. Some devices such
like Apple iPad Pro,
more clearly meet the needs of artists through the design of the stylus,
screen quality and performance. However, if you need more
professional experience, they fall short of Wacom’s experience.

Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium Bundle

Best tablet with great accessories

Active drawing area: 262 x 147 mm
Pen pressure sensitivity: 8 192
Connections: USB-C to USB-A

Pros

  • Fantastic quality assembly
  • Great drawing experience
  • Accessories included

Cons

  • External display required

For the price, the best drawing tablet you can buy can buy right now is Xencelabs Pen Tablet Medium. Xencelabs is a relative newcomer to the market, and while the name sounds like another cheap Chinese knockoff, its designers have gained experience at Wacom and the results speak for themselves. This is an outstanding drawing tablet with a beautiful design and a perfect value for money.

The texture of the drawing area is perfect, with the perfect “bite” level of the stylus, making it very comfortable to use. The tablet also comes with two styluses in the box, a regular and a slim version, and allows you to customize them quite a lot. This is a convenient way to set up two styluses for different purposes, such as one optimized for line drawing and the other for shading. Pressure and tilt sensitivity are excellent.

While we think this tablet is a good value if it’s out of your budget, Xencelabs also offers a cheaper, smaller tablet version that provides a similar premium drawing experience.

Apple iPad Air (2022)

One of the most powerful drawing tablets you can buy

Active drawing area: 247 x 178 mm
Resolution: 9000 6 2350 x 1640
Sensitivity pen to pressure: unspecified (optional Apple Pencil required)
Connections: USB-C, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
OS: iPadOS 15. 4

Pros

  • Chip power M1
  • Exceptional screen quality

Cons

  • Screen at 60Hz
  • No Thunderbolt 4

Apple proprietary chips M1 has completely changed the game over the past couple of years. They’ve upgraded Apple laptops and desktops, reimagined the iPad Pro, and can now be found in the iPad Air for a super-smooth experience. Along with compatibility with the Apple Pencil 2, this means the latest iPad Air is one of the best drawing tablets available right now, as well as a great all-around tablet.

Its screen is absolutely stunning: a 2360×1640 resolution IPS panel that delivers 264 ppi for incredible clarity, full color support and even backlighting, with a maximum brightness of 500 nits. Admittedly, the iPad Pro has an excellent screen with 600 nits of brightness on the 11-inch version, or a whopping 1,000 nits on the flagship 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Pro also delivers a much smoother 120Hz refresh rate rather than 60Hz (more on all of that below), but it’s also a significantly more expensive device.

Place two tablets next to an Apple Pencil 2 and different refresh rates will mean you’ll notice a difference in terms of latency. But let’s not get carried away here: as a practical matter, 60Hz is more than enough, and the iPad Air 2022 is still one of the smoothest ways to draw you can get right now – plus, you can watch YouTube and more on it. the other is when you’ve finished drawing, which you can’t do with Wacom.

iPad Pro 12.9 (M1, 2021)

Amazing drawing tablet with lots of features

Active drawing area: 262 x 197 mm
Resolution: 2732 x 204 8
Pen pressure sensitivity: n/a (requires optional Apple Pencil)
Connections: Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
OS: iPadOS 15.4

Pros

  • Ultimate Computing power
  • New heavy duty screen

Cons

  • More than many people need

The iPad Pro has the best of both worlds. If the best drawing tablet just isn’t enough for you and you want the best tablet in every way, there really is only one choice: the 12.9-inch iPad Pro M1.

Not only is iPad Pro equipped with Apple’s blazing-fast M1 chip for amazing performance, it also features a Mini-LED XDR display with amazing brightness and local dimming for amazing contrast. Pair them together (and add the amazingly sleek and intuitive Apple Pencil 2) and you have an almost unrivaled all-in-one system for creating digital art, as well as displaying it to its best effect.

So why isn’t this our first choice? Well, it depends on what you need. The 12.9″ iPad Pro (M1, 2021) is so powerful and priced to match that if you’re only looking for a drawing tablet and don’t need its many other features, it’s probably not worth it, but a dedicated tool like the ones above will offer the best value for money. However, let’s not lose sight of the fact that this is one of the best tablets on the market right now, and without a doubt one of the best for drawing.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8

New flagship brings much-needed upgrade to Microsoft range

Active drawing area: 286 x 191 mm
Resolution: 3000 x 2 000
Pen pressure sensitivity: 4096 levels ( with Surface Pen)
Connections: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, USB-C
OS: Windows 11

Pros

  • Powered by Windows 11
  • Excellent, responsive screen

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Stylus must be purchased separately

Microsoft’s Surface tablets have never been as popular as Apple’s iPad line, but the latest Surface Pro 8 is bigger looks like a challenge to Apple’s dominance. It costs about the same as the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and Microsoft has clearly done a great job of making this tablet look like a viable alternative in terms of looks and performance.

Even the base model has plenty of power with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD, and if that’s not enough for you, even more powerful configurations are available, but be aware that the price is even higher.

Its display is excellent, with a resolution of 2880 x 1920 and the ability to increase the refresh rate to 120Hz. This makes it very responsive when used with the Surface Pen stylus, although be aware that you will need to purchase it separately.

Having Windows 11 is also a big plus for this tablet as it means you can use the full desktop version of programs like Photoshop instead of fiddling around with tablet apps. If you’re already in the Windows ecosystem, then buying this tablet definitely makes sense.

5

Wacom Cintiq 22

This is a fantastic drawing tablet

Active drawing area: 476 x 268 mm
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Pen pressure sensitivity: 8192 levels
Connections: HDMI, USB 2.0

Pros

  • Excellent pressure sensitivity
  • Professional grade device

Cons

  • Low screen resolution for the size
  • No built-in ExpressKeys

However, despite increased competition, the Wacom name is still something to be reckoned with, and as far as we know, the Wacom Cintiq 22 is definitely one of the best drawing tablets you can get.

With a 22-inch display, this is a serious tablet with plenty of room to work. It has a Full HD resolution – not as many pixels as some of the newer and brighter tablets, but more than enough for most people. You can get sharper screens on other Wacom tablets, but they tend to cost more, and this model aims to deliver Wacom quality at an affordable price. And let’s not forget that many tablets, including Xencelabs, don’t have a screen at all.

What really makes the Cintiq 22 such a pleasure to use is the Wacom Pro Pen 2 with 8192 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity. Wacom has been in this area for a long time, and it’s hard to imagine an artist complaining about the Pro Pen 2. It works very, very well.

The advantage of Wacom tablets for students and those who want to do digital art professionally is that it is pretty much the industry standard, so learning how to use it is a very good step. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider other tablets, just something to keep in mind.

Wacom Intuos Pro Large

Active drawing area: 311 x 216 mm
Pen pressure sensitivity: 90 006 8192 levels
Connections: USB, Bluetooth
OS: Windows or macOS

Pros

  • Excellent pen sensitivity
  • Wired or wireless

Cons

  • Drawing area could be larger

While its drawing area isn’t the largest you can get, it gives you plenty of room, and 8192 levels of pen sensitivity make it as close as possible to using a real pen. All supported by Wacom’s broad ecosystem of alternative pens and texture sheets to give your drawing surface that special touch.

The Intuos Pro is also available in other sizes, so if the price is a little high and you’re willing to work with a smaller screen, consider the Intuos Pro Medium or Intuos Pro Small. Both of these tablets have the functionality of the largest version, only with smaller working areas.

Pen pressure sensitivity: 4096 levels
Connections: USB
OS: Windows or macOS

Pros

  • Great starter tablet
  • Very affordable

Cons

    9004 7 Drawing area will be small for some

Huion is a name that offers drawing tablets with impressive features at great prices. If you’re just starting out and aren’t quite sure if it’s worth spending a lot of money on a tablet, the Huion h530P is the perfect way to “test the ford” by providing enough features without spending too much.

Yes, the drawing area is small, but the pen is sensitive enough to give you a true sense of the creative benefits that drawing tablets can bring. You may soon outgrow this tablet, but it’s a very affordable way to get started.

Be aware, however, that this is a graphics tablet, not a pen display, so you will need to connect it to some kind of external display to be able to see what you are drawing. A monitor is ideal, although in a pinch a smartphone or other tablet can handle this task.

  • Minimum parallax

Cons

  • No stand included
  • Screen could be brighter

The new XP-Pen Artist Pro 16 comes with an intelligent chip that XP-Pen says gives you ten times more touch sensitivity than previous offerings. It provides a real light touch when it comes to applying fine lines, requiring only 3g of pressure to leave a mark. The presence of two dials and eight customizable shortcut buttons makes the Artist Pro 16 a pleasant tactile experience, as is the all-metal body that surrounds it.

The lack of an included stand is a little disappointing, and some monitor setups may require a bit of cable tangle, which can be annoying for those who prefer a clean desktop. But other than that, it’s an impressive, enticing tablet.

    The best drawing tablets: what are the types?

    Generally speaking, there are three main types of drawing tablets. Each of them approaches the main task in their own way – to help you draw on a Windows PC or Mac in the same way as if you were drawing on paper.

    When it comes to drawing tablets, there’s everything from high-resolution professional graphics tablets to portable tablets that are inexpensive and fit in a small backpack. There is also a growing market for drawing tablets for the little ones, if that’s what you’re looking for.

    Drawing Tablets

    If you’ve been working with computers for a long time, this is what you probably instinctively think of when you think of a drawing tablet: a flat surface on which you draw with a stylus and the work is displayed on a separate computer monitor.

    Drawing tablets remain the most affordable category of drawing tablets. Their main drawback is the feeling of a “tear off” between the drawing surface and the screen, although most people quickly get used to this.

    Pen displays

    Pen displays consist of a flat screen monitor and a pressure-sensitive surface on which you draw with a stylus. They don’t have the lag feeling you can get with graphics tablets and are more portable; however, they cost more. Plus, you get a lot of cables between the display and the computer, and the screen surfaces don’t offer the “bite” that graphics tablets do.

    Tablets

    Android and iOS devices such as the Surface Pro and iPad Pro compete with other drawing tablets in two ways.

    Hisense H8F Price and Availability

    The Hisense H8F comes in three sizes, a 50-inch model, a 55-inch set and the 65-inch screen size seen in our review. Available through Amazon and Best Buy, they range in price from $399.99 to $699.99.

    Hisense 50H8F 50-inch Android TV $399
    Hisense 55H8F 55-inch Android TV $499
    Hisense 65H8F 65-inch Android TV $699

    All three sizes offer a similar collection of features and specs, from full-array local dimming and Dolby Vision support to the rich Android TV smart platform. Smaller sizes will have fewer dimming zones due to the smaller screen sizes. The 55-inch model features 56 zones, while the 50-inch model has only 32 zones. The built-in speakers will also differ slightly, with both the 55-inch and 50-inch models outfitted with 10-watt speakers, a step down from the 65-inch model’s 15-watt speakers.

    Aside from these key differences, the features and overall performance we’ve seen on the 65-inch model will likely carry over to other models in the H8F series. However, the only H8F model we have tested thus far is the 65-inch version.

    Design

    The overall design of the Hisense H8F is basic but clean and aesthetically pleasing. The display is surrounded with relatively thin bezels on the top and sides, with a slightly thicker bezel along the bottom that includes a protruding IR sensor. While more-premium TVs might go out of their way to hide this a bit more, it’s not egregious.

    Looking at the back of the set, it’s still not a showpiece, but the matte-black finish looks fine and Hisense is betting that you’ll set this up with its back to a wall. You can also hang the H8F on the wall, thanks to holes for a 200-millimeter x 400-millimeter VESA mount.

    One of the most interesting aspects of the TV design is the integrated stand. Like most TVs, it comes with a pair of feet that attach with simple screws. However, Hisense has set up the TV with two locations to install the feet. You can opt for a wider footprint, with the Y-shaped metal feet attached toward the right and left edges of the TV, or further in. This gives you the option of putting the TV on a smaller surface or just freeing up some space for other home theater gear, like a Blue-ray player.

    The best part of this two-position stand design is that the sturdy metal feet provide plenty of stability in either position, and there’s no need to worry about the sure footing of the H8F if you opt for the narrower position.

    Ports

    The H8F is outfitted with a single collection of ports, set in several inches from the left-hand edge of the TV. All of these ports face the side, making it easy to reach them and plug new devices into them.

    There, you’ll find four HDMI ports, one featuring audio return channel (ARC) support, along with two USB ports, a composite video input and an optical port for digital surround sound. An RF connector lets you attach an HDTV antenna to the TV’s built-in tuner, and a headphone jack is available for earphones or speakers.

    For network connectivity, the TV has both a wired LAN port and dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It also offers Bluetooth 5.0 for connecting headphones and other devices wirelessly.

    Performance

    The H8F’s 65-inch screen offers great performance for a 4K set in this price range. Strong contrast and vibrant color help the TV deliver solid picture quality, but the full-array backlight didn’t have the precision we expected.

    When I watched the opening scenes from Blade Runner 2049, the 4K detail came through with impressive clarity. Fine details such as specs of dirt on gloves and strands of hair on Ryan Gosling’s head were as crisp and sharp as I’ve seen on much more expensive models. But that crisp detail highlighted one issue with the display, as fast action produced some smearing, surrounding quick-moving objects and people with a bit of a haze that was easy to see in fight scenes.

    Color quality is great, whether the scene was in a lush green forest or a holographic Vegas stage show. I saw the same thing in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where a red-and-white fire engine looked bright and clean, with lifelike color. Less reality-based scenes, such as a glowing purple, laser-blasting weapon, also looked quite vibrant. More-subtle colors such as skin tones came across very well, with close-ups on faces and hands looking extremely natural.

    The vibrant color quality is largely due to the display’s excellent color reproduction; the Hisense TV registered 99.87% of the Rec. 709 color space in our testing. That’s only a fraction of a percentage point behind the results from the Vizio M-Series Quantum (99.92%) and TCL 6-Series Roku TV (99.96%) and significantly better than the Samsung NU6900’s mark (96. 25%).

    Instrumental testing did show that the H8F tended to oversaturate reds and blues a bit. But the only really noticeable problem I saw when viewing content was occasional banding in subtle color changes, such as a fog bank or a cloud.

    Color accuracy is also very good, with the set earning a Delta-E rating of 1.4 (closer to zero is better). That outdoes results from both the Vizio M-Series Quantum (3.6) and Samsung NU6900 (3.08) and is nearly as good as the TCL 6-Series’ mark (1.1).

    The H8F’s 65-inch screen offers great performance for a 4K set in this price range.

    Color quality aside, we did see one significant issue with the H8F, and that was the backlighting. A count of dimming zones confirms that Hisense has backed the LCD panel with 60 dimmable backlights, which in turn let the H8F display high-dynamic range (HDR) content, with support for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats. When the HDR worked well, it looked excellent, with deep, rich black levels; clear midrange detail; and bright spots that popped.

    But other scenes were marred by significant haloing, and as the backlighting shifted to match objects moving on screen, entire sections of the display would switch from dark to light, either blowing out the dark details with unwanted haloing or plunging midrange detail into a muddled darkness. This is in addition to other, more pedestrian backlighting issues, like shadows in the corner of the screen or vertical bands of inconsistent brightness when viewing solid-color screens or shots of the sky.

    It’s a shame, because when the elements come together just right, the H8F’s excellent color quality is really highlighted with great brightness and contrast.

    Gaming Performance

    Plugging in our Xbox One X to test 4K gaming capability, we saw that the Hisense H8F readily supports 4K gaming at 60 frames per second. Support for other frame rates varies. This set does support 4K content with 10-bit color at 24 frames per second, ideal for movie watching, along with HDR 10 and Dolby Vision for movies and streaming content, but it doesn’t support either HDR format in games.

    Once you hit 70% volume, you’ll clearly hear the limits of the low-end sound, with a rattly distortion creeping into any bass.

    The H8F does not support 50-Hz or 60-Hz content playback with 10-bit color but will do it in 8 bit. Combine all this with a tested lag time of 14.1 milliseconds, and the Hisense H8F Android TV should be a decent option for 4K gaming, provided you’re not picky about color depth or HDR. See our best 4K TVs for gaming for other options.

    Audio

    The H8F is equipped with two 15-watt speakers, which delivered strong, room-filling volume and reasonably healthy bass levels. Listening to Radiohead’s “Exit Music (for a Film),” I was able to make out Thom Yorke’s vocals clearly, whether they were sung at a near whisper or belted out. Instrumentation was equally clear, from the lightly strummed acoustic guitar to the moderately thrumming bass. The drums, however, seemed a little less pronounced than they should be.

    The TV produced decent audio quality at most volumes, but anything below 25% had little to no bass, and at around the 50% mark, I heard minor distortion. Once you hit 70% volume, you’ll clearly hear the limits of the low-end sound, with a rattly distortion creeping into any bass.

    Smart TV Features

    In the past, Hisense has largely relied upon Roku and its own proprietary smart TV platforms, but the H8F instead uses Android TV. While Roku remains one of our favorite smart TV operating systems, Android presents a significant improvement over alternatives Hisense has used in years past.

    The introduction of Android opens up a significant app ecosystem, thanks to the Google Play store, and the functionality is enhanced further with built-in Chromecast capability. This makes it easy not only to share content from your phone to the big screen, but also to share apps to the TV, even apps that may not have a smart TV version available in the play store.

    The H8F has Google Assistant built in, giving you all of the capabilities of a Google Home speaker through the mic-enabled remote control.

    The organization of Android TV 8.0 (also known as Android TV Oreo) is easy to navigate, with multiple rows of content, highlighting key apps such as Netflix and YouTube. And you can easily customize this to highlight the apps of your choice.

    MORE: Who Makes the Smartest Smart TV? Here Are the Results

    As an Android TV, the H8F also has Google Assistant built in, giving you all of the capabilities you’d get from a Google Home speaker through the mic-enabled remote control. Not only is it handy for TV-related tasks, like searching for content or controlling TV functions, but you can also use it to search the web for information and control connected devices around your home.

    If yours is an Amazon household, you can also pair the TV with any Amazon Alexa-enabled smart speaker. Additionally, while Amazon Prime Video isn’t currently offered on Android TVs, it is slated to arrive this summer, including to the H8F Android TV.

    Remote Control

    The included Hisense remote control presents a good balance between the minimalist designs seen on the small, but sparsely featured Roku remotes and a traditional TV remote. That’s thanks to channel and number buttons that give you traditional TV navigation, paired with a four-way directional pad and functional buttons for navigating all of your smart TV menus.

    The remote also has a built-in microphone for voice interaction, which is triggered by pressing and holding the Google Assistant button, marked by the bubbly, colorful Google Assistant logo.

    On the lower end of the remote are four dedicated app buttons, similar to those seen on many other remotes. The model we reviewed had dedicated buttons for Netflix, YouTube, Google Play and Vudu. While these buttons generally function as paid promotion, featuring apps that have an agreement in place with the manufacturer, this selection happens to be a little more useful than most.

    Bottom Line

    The Hisense H8F is a generally well-made midrange TV, but alongside the great color quality and excellent smart functionality are some real downers, like distractingly inconsistent backlighting and audio that begs for a soundbar. However, in this price range, it’s hard to strike the right balance between affordability and flawless performance, and most people will give up picture and sound quality in the name of a slightly lower price.

    Overall, we prefer the TCL 6-Series Roku TV in this price range, as it offers a better picture and sound quality. But the Hisense H8F is definitely worth a look if you’re searching for a good TV for under $700.

    Pros

    • Easy mobile and touchscreen controls
    • Sturdy design that saves space compare to larger laser printers
    • Works with Alexa
    • All-in-one model with scanning and faxing

    Cons

    • May be too expensive for some home offices

    Why you should buy this: It’s the best color laser printer you can buy.

    Who’s it for: Small business owners and those with a home office.

    Why we picked the HP Laserjet Pro MFP M283cdw:

    Just because you want a powerful, feature-rich color printer at home, that doesn’t mean it needs to be bulky. The HP Laserjet Pro MFP M283cdw has a simple, modern design, including a helpful 2.7-inch color touchscreen for controls. But it still has enough power (along with scanning, copying, and faxing capabilities) to handle jobs for a small business or home office without breaking a sweat.

    At 22 pages per minute, it’s not quite as fast as some larger printers, and it’s compatible with any way you prefer to print or scan, including plenty of mobile and wireless options. There’s even Alexa compatibility for tying it to routines or giving voice commands. If you’re looking for a reliable office laser printer that’s ready for serious work, we suggest starting here.

You’ll benefit from the automatic document feeder, high-yield toner options, and the ability to print from and scan to popular cloud apps and services.

    Canon Color imageClass MF644Cdw

    Best color laser printer for photo printing

    Pros

    • Solid photo and text printing quality
    • Large touchscreen control panel
    • Excellent UI and navigation

    Cons

    • Expensive cost-per-page for color
    • No expandable paper input capabilities for larger offices

    Why you should buy this: Great color print quality in a multifunction printer.

    Who it’s for: Anyone who needs to print or copy photos and graphics quickly.

    Why we picked the Canon Color imageClass MF644Cdw:

    Laser printers are not photo printers, per se, but models like the Canon Color imageClass MF644Cdw go a long way to blurring the lines between them, which makes sense coming from a company like Canon, known for its cameras. While we wouldn’t recommend it for photographers, the MF644Cdw is hard to beat for an office that needs to make or reproduce documents that contain graphics and photos.

    While the 22 ppm print speed of the Canon Color imageClass MF644Cdw doesn’t match the HP M281fdw, it does offer duplex printing, copying, and scanning from its 50-sheet document feeder. With a monthly duty cycle of 2,500 pages, it can also hold up to the standard printing demands of small to medium-sized offices.

    In addition to USB, print jobs can be sent wirelessly via Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Mopria, Wi-Fi direct, and Canon’s Print Business app.

    This speedy but compact number has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low-Energy, and mobile printing is supported across a number of devices and platforms.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Color laser printers versus inkjet printers: what’s best?

    Laser printers are better for text documents, as they produce crisp lines even at very small font sizes. Over time, they are also cheaper to run, as you can get more prints per dollar spent on toner than you can with inkjet ink. Laser printers also offer faster printing speeds and can save some serious time on large print jobs. {versus}

    However, laser printers and the toner they use carry higher upfront costs. If you don’t print very often, you can buy a cheap inkjet printer — some are as low as $30 or so — and it may take a long time before its higher operational costs catch up to the higher initial cost of a laser printer. For smaller print jobs, the faster pages-per-minute rate of a laser printer also won’t be much of an advantage. If you’re looking to save money in the long term and need a compelling alternative to laser printers, consider inkjet solutions that rely on tanks for ink rather than cartridges, like Epson’s EcoTank series. Not only will tanks be better for the environment through less waste, but they will save you money for larger print jobs.

    Color laser printers may also be a little slower compared to comparable monochrome versions because of how the colored toner process works. To create color, most color laser printers use a combination of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. They make one pass for each toner color (methods here can vary, but many use multiple rollers), which naturally takes longer.

    While color laser printers have gotten much better at handling photographs, if you’re looking to make detailed, color-accurate photographic prints to hang on your wall, display in a gallery, or sell to customers, a high-end inkjet photo printers is still the way to go (or simply outsource the work to a photo lab). Beyond print quality, inkjet photo printers can also handle a wider variety of paper types and sizes compared to laser printers. A color laser printer will handle inline photos and graphics in documents just fine. Most modern color laser printers, especially those made for small offices, will be able to handle different types of print jobs, from standard documents to labels and card stock.

    Do color laser printers come with Wi-Fi or AirPrint support?

    Yes. As with inkjet printers, wireless connectivity has become very common on color laser printers. However, not every model will support every brand of wireless printing tech. The Brother HL-3170CDW supports both Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, for example, while the Dell C1760NW does not, though it offers mobile printing through its own proprietary app.

    How can I print from my iPad, iPhone, or Android device?

    This will depend on the wireless features of your printer. Many printers today support Apple AirPrint, which makes it easy to print from an iPad or iPhone to a printer on your Wi-Fi network. Not all apps support AirPrint, but many do — including non-Apple apps.

    On Android, Google Cloud Print will allow you to print any document stored in your Google Drive or directly from Google apps like Docs and Sheets. As with AirPrint, a printer that supports Cloud Print is required.

    If your printer does not support Cloud Print or AirPrint but does feature Wi-Fi, your printer manufacturer may offer its own iOS and Android app for printing from your mobile device. Some models even feature USB ports so you can print directly off of a USB drive without having to connect a mobile device or PC.

    How often will I have to buy toner?

    This depends on how much you print. Toner cartridges often have yields of 2,000 pages or more (check the specifications of your printer for your model’s specific yield). For light home use, that means many people could easily go a year or more without replacing toner. For office use, the replacement interval will be shorter, but toner could still last a few months.

    How can I save money on toner?

    The first step is to print efficiently; that is, double-check your page layout settings and make sure everything is correct before you hit that print button.

    When it is time to reorder, you can save money by buying third-party toner cartridges. However, buying third-party toner likely isn’t recommended by your printer’s manufacturer, but so long as you make sure it’s compatible with your printer, it should work just fine. However, some printers, like the HP model above, look for a toner that uses a special chip identifying it as original equipment. HP warns that while some other cartridges may work today, they may not in the future.

    Can I buy a color laser printer with built-in fax?

    Yes. Many all-in-one laser printers can scan, copy, and fax documents. If you’re doing a lot of faxing, copying, or scanning, be sure to choose a printer with an automatic document feeder (ADF), and if you want to do double-sided scans and double-sided prints, a model that has a duplex ADF and duplex printing will be best. Double-sided prints can also help save money if cost is a concern. Note that not all all-in-ones — also called multifunction printers — have fax modems, so be sure to check the specs before you buy. If you need a multifunction printer, be sure to check out our best picks for all-in-one printers.

    How do you test color printers?

    To find the best color laser printers, we factor in criteria such as speed, price, maintenance costs, and any unique features that help them one-up the competition.

    Our selections are based on our long- and short-term testing; experience with earlier models; familiarity with the company’s technologies; consultation with industry experts, fellow journalists, and users; online forums; lab results; and other third-party reviews. We look across the board — not just at our own experiences — to find consensus on what we think are the best-performing printers you can currently buy. We also look at list pricing to determine if a product is worth the cost. We will even recommend printers that aren’t new, provided the features are still best-in-class.

    The printer market evolves constantly, with manufacturers either introducing better models with new features or basic upgrades. So, you can expect our picks to change as well. But don’t worry — the models you see here will be with you for some time, and if we anticipate better models on the horizon, we will state that upfront to help you decide whether you should buy now or wait.

    If you find our top picks just aren’t the right fit for your specific needs, though, there are other color laser printers worth checking out. If you’d like an all-in-one that can handle scanning, copying, and faxing documents, or you simply just need a more affordable model, be sure to take a look at the other printers we’ve placed on this list.

    5 Best Laser Printers of 2023

    Written by Alex Kane, Lela Gwenn, and Ceara Perez-Murphy

    Updated May 8, 2023

    Most of the work we do from home—be it for an employer, to keep our personal finances in order, or for school—can be completed and submitted digitally. Once in a while, however, you might need to print and sign a legal contract, scan receipts for your accountant, or free a photo that’s been trapped on your smartphone to hang on your wall. Situations like these are what make owning a reliable multifunction home printer so attractive.

    If you’re someone who needs to print a lot of black-text documents, as opposed to lots of graphics and photos, you may find that the speed and precision of a laser printer suits your needs far better than an inkjet one. Having tested a number of great models, these are our recommendations for the best laser printers you can buy online right now.

    Editor’s Note:

    The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

    HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw

    The HP Color LaserJet Pro m479dw is much larger than other printers we’ve tested. It screams “I belong in a fancy office.” However, we were happy to set it up at home: connecting it to PC, Mac, and phone apps was almost effortless, and using the USB stick to print was a breeze. I’m pleased to say that the quality of the scanned capture was very crisp and color true. Documents printed on plain or heavyweight paper came out very good. Photo printing was clear, and there wasn’t a single streak. The advantage of the laser copier shows here—streaking simply isn’t a problem.

    I did have some hiccups between paper changes; I had to tell it what kind of paper I was changing to sometimes more than once. When printing photos, the Color LaserJet Pro added a border much larger than those left by the other printers I tested.

    Lexmark MB2236adw

    In order to use the Lexmark MB2236, you’ll need to download two apps: the Lexmark Mobile Assistant app, which allows you to set up the printer, and the Lexmark Mobile Printing app, which lets you put it to work. The Mobile Assistant app made setting up the printer a breeze. Printing using Lexmark’s Mobile Printing app? Not so much. Print jobs created in the Mobile Printing app would queue but refused to print, with no way to clear the queue.

    I experienced similar issues while attempting to print from my Windows and Apple laptops. After requesting that a document be printed, a small box would pop up in the corner of my computer’s display to tell me that the print job was queued; however, nothing would print. More frustrating than this, there was no way to clear the print queue. I turned to Lexmark’s troubleshooting suggestions to resolve these issues, but was unsuccessful in finding a solution. Be ready to connect to the MB2236 using a USB cable.

    Brother DCP-L2550DW

    We haven’t tested this precise model, but it has nearly 5,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. Brother’s monochrome laser printer is a bulky, office-style laser model that can handle heavy-duty black-and-white print jobs—contracts and other legal documents, novel manuscripts, and so on. The automatic document feeder can handle about up to 50 sheets at a time, and though it has both copy and scan modes, it can only do double-sided printing; you’d have to scan each side of a document separately.

    Xerox C230/DNI

    This color laser printer from Xerox claims to offer office-friendly performance, though we haven’t tested this exact model out ourselves. As advertised, it should hold up to 250 sheets of paper at once, as well as handling print speeds up to 24 pages per minute. It can print on various kinds of cardstock, and you can adjust the darkness level to conserve ink—letting you save money and be environmentally conscious. Reviewers love the print quality.

    Pros
    • Prints up to 24 pages per minute

    • Holds up to 250 sheets of paper

    • Can print on cardstock

    Brother MFCL2710DW

    With print speeds of up to 32 pages per minute and a 250-sheet paper capacity, the Brother Monochrome Laser Printer scores high among Amazon reviews. Along with less paper refills you can also expect convenience from this printer’s up to 50-sheet document feeder to help save time with multi-page copy, scan and fax. This printer works with Alexa and can print wirelessly from your desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet, making printing less of a chore.

    If your computer doesn’t have a disc drive you’ll definitely have some trouble with the installation process and you’ll want to set aside plenty of time in order to complete the process. Reviews mention that despite the challenging installation process, the printer itself is efficient and that the print quality is fantastic. For basic printing and scanning tasks, this printer is worth looking into.

    Cons
    • Hard to set up

      Laser printer without cartridges: how does it work and how profitable is it?

    Pantum M6500

    • Printing: black and white laser
    • Print resolution: up to 1200×1200 dpi
    • Scanner resolution: up to 1200×1200 dpi

    Another issue is that the print and scan resolution of the HP LaserJet M141w is noticeably lower, but if you are dealing with text documents, this is not so important. In addition, the development of HP can only work with branded cartridges of the company and blocks their reuse, which can increase the cost of operating the MFP. And this is definitely worth considering when buying it.

    • Printing: color laser
    • Print resolution: up to 600×600 dpi
    • Scanner resolution: up to 600×600 dpi

When shopping for chairs, the height of the seat should be adjustable so that the user’s feet can sit flat on the floor with their knees at right angles.

    Show seasonal allergies who’s boss

Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.

    No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.

Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.

    Start with the basics

    An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.

    The nitty gritty

    Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:

    • Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.

    Important factors when choosing a memory card are speed, capacity, and the type of device in which it is used. The ideal option is to purchase a memory card with the maximum capacity at an affordable price, but it is equally important to have a memory card with a high enough write speed to avoid shooting errors. When choosing the right card format, you should consider your needs and the purposes for which it will be used.

    Megabits and megabytes: what’s the difference?

    The first aspect that can cause confusion is the difference between megabits and megabytes. MB/s stands for “megabyte per second” and Mb/s stands for “megabits per second”. Sometimes they are also referred to as “MB per sec. ” and “MB per second”, as if the previous designations weren’t confusing enough.

    In other words, you need to remove the prefix “mega” and focus on bits and bytes. 1 byte consists of 8 bits. Therefore, 1 MB/s = 8 MB/s. This is important because some camera manufacturers list the camera’s video bit rate in megabits rather than megabytes.

    For example, the Sony a7S III mirrorless camera has a 4K video rate of 600 megabits per second (Mbps). If you’re looking for an SD card to use with the a7S III, you might think that all you need is a memory card with a sustained write speed of 600 megabytes per second (MB/s), when in fact the transfer rate is The video signal refers to the bit rate, not the byte.

    Determining the video bit rate in megabytes requires simple math to convert bits to bytes. Since 1 byte is made up of 8 bits, just take the number of bits and divide it by 8. If 600 is divided by 8, you get 75, which means that 600MB/s is actually 75MB/s, hence the write speed is much lower than you originally thought. By and large, you will need an SD card with a minimum sustained write speed of 90 MB/s.

    Photos

    When taking photos, some users prefer several smaller cards to one large card to minimize the risk of losing all photos if the card is damaged. If you’re shooting in RAW format with files of 50MB or more, you’ll benefit from U1 or U3 speeds.

    Many DSLRs and mirrorless cameras can shoot in continuous shooting mode, which means you can take a series of photos by holding down the shutter button. All received frames will first be placed in the fast intermediate internal memory of the camera, called the buffer. Then the data from the photos stored in the camera’s buffer will be written to the memory card. The camera must transfer this data quickly and efficiently, especially when using continuous shooting mode, so a fast memory card is essential for optimal performance. The card must have a high write speed so that the buffer does not overflow and interfere with data transfer.

    Be sure to check the specifications of your camera for the recommended speed class.

    4K video

    The SD Card Association recommends using cards with UHS Speed ​​Class 3 (U3) or higher for 4K video recording, but V30 or higher is the best choice for video recording. higher, since modern cameras record in 4K resolution at 120 frames per second. If you are using a high-speed camera that captures more frames per second to record video, it is better to have a faster memory card.

    Cards with a higher speed class support high bit rates and allow you to record higher quality video, but there is one important thing to keep in mind: your camera must be able to handle the speed of the card. There is no point in buying a card with a higher speed rating if your camera does not support the card’s write speed. In most cases, you will be able to insert a high speed card into a slower camera and it will still work, however you will not be able to take full advantage of the card that is available at the highest write speed.

    Check your camera’s specifications for the recommended speed class and decide based on the resolution and fps you’re using when shooting video, whether you need to exceed the required settings. Learn more about choosing a drive for shooting 4K video.

    Drones

    Drones typically use microSD cards to store all footage. You will need to purchase multiple high capacity microSD cards that can provide high transfer speeds for resolution formats such as 4K video.

    Check with the device manufacturer for the recommended capacity and speed class for your drone. Each drone has different requirements depending on the manufacturer and brand. For example, the DJI Mavic Air 2 has a maximum capacity of 256GB and can record in 4K resolution at up to 120MB/s or 15MB/s. You will need a 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB, or 256 GB card with U3 or V30 speed class.

    We recommend having multiple microSD cards for your drone to reduce the chance of losing footage as memory cards wear out over time. You never know what might happen while you’re working, and storing all your footage on one card runs the risk of losing all your data at once. Learn more about choosing storage for drones.

    GoPro

    See the GoPro website for a list of recommended microSD cards. The company’s website states that all GoPro cameras require a microSD card of at least class 10, but it’s best to go for U1 or U3 speed class cards as they have better speed characteristics to maximize GoPro’s potential. List of cards that support GoPro cameras

    • HERO (2014) supports cards up to 32 GB
    • HERO3 Black, HERO3+, HERO+, and HERO+ LCD models support cards up to 64 GB
    • HERO4, HERO Session, HERO Fusion, HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black, HERO (2018), HERO7 Silver & White models support cards up to 128 GB.
    • HERO7 Black, HERO MAX, and HERO8 Black support cards up to 256 GB.

    If you’re shooting 4K video with your GoPro, you should choose a microSD card with a high speed rating. Recording 4K video at 60fps and 12MB/s with a GoPro requires a high-speed microSD card with a Speed ​​Class U3 or V30 or higher. This is a very complex task requiring high write speed and large memory. Even shooting at 1080p at 240fps requires a fast enough memory card with plenty of capacity.

    Check your GoPro specifications to see which microSD card is compatible with it and whether you need to go beyond the minimum requirements in terms of speed and capacity. Learn more about choosing a drive for your GoPro.

    Nintendo Switch and 3DS

    Nintendo Switch accepts microSDXC cards up to 2TB, great for downloading games. We recommend purchasing a large capacity memory card for your Switch console as games take up a lot of space. If you are downloading games such as “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” which is up to 13.4 GB, you will need a large capacity memory card to expand the existing 32 GB memory of the Nintendo Switch system.

    At the same time, microSDXC cards are not available for Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS owners. Nintendo 3DS/2DS only supports SDHC cards with a capacity of 32 GB or less. If you plan on downloading a lot of games, you’ll just need to purchase some 32GB microSD cards. Learn more about choosing a drive for Nintendo Switch.

    Android™ Phones

    If you plan to shoot 4K video with your phone, you need a U3 microSDXC card with at least 64 GB of storage. In other cases, for most smartphone users, a 16 GB or 32 GB microSDHC card is enough to store photos, videos and mobile games. A 32GB microSDHC card should last for a while before running out of storage space. Many smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S20 and LG G8, support microSDXC cards up to 1TB. Learn more about choosing storage for Android phones.

    DVRs

    When recording driving footage on a DVR, the most important factors to consider are the recording time and the environment in which the vehicle will be located. This requires a memory card with increased reliability. Durable microSD memory cards withstand both repeated write and rewrite cycles and the extreme temperatures you may encounter while driving or parking. Ideally, the memory card you choose should be protected from extreme temperatures, shock, and water. Learn more about choosing a drive for DVRs.

    Surveillance cameras

    When choosing a memory card for use in surveillance cameras, consider whether the camera is recording low or high resolution video. The size difference between 720p and 1080p video files is significant, and between 1080p and 4K video files it’s even bigger. Will the camera record around the clock or only after the motion sensor is triggered? In this case, write speed is very important. Slow write speeds can result in stuttering or garbled frames due to the storage format’s inability to “keep up” with the recording. Memory cards must be durable, resistant to weather conditions and temperature changes, especially when it comes to outdoor video surveillance cameras.

    Repka Pi and getting started.

    Tests of different MicroSDs, SD card cloning, creating SD card images with working firmware / Sudo Null IT News

    This article will talk about MicroSD cards because for the operation of any single-board device, an SD card with an operating system flashed on it is required, and because the quality and speed of reading and writing to the SD card determines how comfortable it will be to work with a single-plane device and whether this work is not overshadowed by “unexpected” failures of SD cards and damage to files on them. Those. SD cards and the images of operating systems flashed on them are what work with any single-board device begins with and what determines the duration and comfort of this work.

    Many novice users of minicomputers like Raspberry Pi , Orange Pi or like our today’s test participant Repka Pi are wondering “Which memory card to choose?” . And this question is important, because the reliability and performance of the system as a whole depends on the chosen MicroSD, since cards from different manufacturers can differ significantly in their characteristics.

    Also within the framework of this article, we will consider a few more important issues when working with cards: how to make a clone of a MicroSD card to another card, how to make an img image of a card and compress its size, and how to write this image to MicroSD. When working with mini computers, you must always take into account the factor that the card may fail or you need to propagate an already configured OS to other mini computers.

    And we will do all this using Repka Pi and Raspberry Pi single boards.

    The main thing that was used:

    1. Repka Pi 3.

    2. MicroSD card reader.

    3. MicroSD cards Transcend 16GB, Transcend 8GB, SanDisk 16GB and SanDisk 8GB.

    4. Power supply, HDMI cable, network cable, keyboard and mouse.

    The whole article will be based on working with 9 commands0154 dd , parted , PiShrink utility and other related commands.

    You can read more about the dd command on the site losst.pro , and in the article I will give only a small part on which we will rely in the article.

    Command syntax

    $ dd if=copy-source of=destination parameters

    Additional parameters:
    • bs 9011 1 – indicates how many bytes to read and write at a time;

    • cbs – how many bytes should be written at a time;

    • count – copy the specified number of blocks, the size of one block is specified in the bs parameter;

    • conv – apply filters to the data stream;

    • ibs – read the specified number of bytes at a time;

    • obs – write the specified number of bytes at a time;

    • seek – skip the specified number of bytes at the beginning of the read device;

    • skip – skip the specified number of bytes at the beginning of the output device;

    • status – indicates how detailed the output should be;

    • iflag, oflag – allows you to set additional operation flags for the input and output device, the main ones are: nocache, nofollow.

    Before starting work, we log in under root with the command sudo su (at the time of this writing, the version of Repka OS 1.0.9 is dated 03.05.23) and by default log in under root

    Burning an image to MicroSD

    Let’s look at the methods and programs for writing an image to MicroSD. Now we will record the official image Repka OS onto a MicroSD card, and in the future it will be possible to burn the copy of the configured card we created using the same methods.

    1. Download the image of the current firmware from the site repka-pi.ru

    2. take a MicroSD->SD adapter, well, if you already have a MicroSD slot in your card reader or laptop, then you are lucky and you don’t need to look for adapters around the city! I will use MicroSD-> USB adapter which is in the photo below

    Method 1. Write an image using the dd command on our Repka Pi

    This method is more suitable for writing a copy of the image to the sections of this article “ Creating a MicroSD Image” and “ Reducing the Image Size for Repka Pi. PiShrink utility

    1. We insert the USB flash drive with the image into the USB port and insert the microSD card reader into another USB.

    2. Determine the device name with the fdisk command (more about fdisk )

      Run the command: fdisk -l

      Determine the name of our MicroSD to which we will deploy the image, for me it is / dev / sdc and determine the name of the flash drive on which the deployed image is stored, in my case it is 9011 0 /dev/sdb

    3. Mount the flash drive /dev/sdb1 on which the image is stored

      Create a folder:

      mkdir /mnt/usb

      More about mkdir

      Mount the flash drive:

      mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

      More about mount .

    4. Deploy the image with the command dd

    dd if=/mnt/usb/RepkaOS.img of=/dev/sdc bs=1M status=progress iflag=direct oflag=direct

    where :

    if=/mnt/usb/RepkaOS. img – the path to our image on the flash card

    of=/dev/sdc – the name of the device where we will deploy

    We are waiting for completion … The process is not fast.

    Image deployed successfully!

    We insert our newly created card into the Repka Pi and start the system!

    Method 2. Writing an image using ROSA ImageWriter

    Official page of the program: http://wiki.rosalab.ru/ru/index.php/ROSA_ImageWriter

    1. We insert our microSD card reader into the computer.

    2. Select our MicroSD in the “USB-disk” field:

    1. Select the image on the disk:

    1. Now you can click “Burn” in the message window that opens, click “YES” and wait for completion:

    1. The image was written to the card successfully!

    Method 3. Recording an image using Rufus

    Official website of the program: https://rufus. ie/ru/

    1. We insert our microSD card reader into the computer.

    2. Select our MicroSD in the “Device” field.

    3. Choose our image on disk or flash card:

    1. Everything is ready! Now you can press “Start”

      We are waiting for the completion of the recording. After a successful write, we can insert our created map into the Repka Pi .

    Method 4. Burning an image using Win32 Disk Imager

    Official website of the program: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

    1. We insert our microSD card reader into the computer.

    2. Select our MicroSD in the “Device” field as shown below

    1. Select the image

    1. When asked to confirm the entry, click “Yes”

    Everything is ready! We are waiting for the completion of the recording process! 🙂

    Method 5.

    Capturing an image with balenaEtcher

    Official website of the program: https://www.balena.io/etcher

    1. We insert our microSD card reader into the computer.

    2. Select the image by clicking on “Flash from file”.

    1. We select our MicroSD with the “Select target” button.

    In the window that opens, select our MicroSD card.

    1. To start recording, click on “Flash”.

    After recording is complete, you can insert the SD card into the Repka Pi .


    MicroSD test for Repka Pi 3

    35 class 10 microSD cards and Repka Pi 3 based on Allwinner H5 will participate in the test. Allwinner H5 has an SD 3.0 interface with a speed of 100MB / s, but this does not mean that if you have a flash drive with a speed of 130MB / s, then the speed will be the same, a lot of factors affect the speed of work, and one of these factors is that the OS itself also works with the file system.

    And so let’s start testing and consider the following commands.

    Sequential write and read

    Write test:

    dd if=/dev/zero of=~/test.tmp bs=1M count=1024

    where:

    if=/dev/zero – read from zero bytes file (more about /dev/zero )
    of=~/test.tmp – write to test.tmp file of home directory
    bs=1M – write in 1 pass 1MB to file
    count=1024 – write 1024 blocks of size bs

    The output is a 1GB file.

    Clear the file system cache:

    echo 3 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

    Read the file with the command:

    time dd if=~/test.tmp of=/dev/null bs=1M count=1024 90 003

    where :

    if=~/test.tmp – read from a previously created file test. tmp
    of=/dev/null – write to an empty device (more about /dev/null )
    bs=1M – for 1 pass we will read 1MB from the file test.tmp
    count=1024 – we read 1024 blocks of size bs

    Deleting a temporary file, created when executing the previous commands:

    rm ~/test.tmp

    An example of executing commands

    During testing, we will write / read files of 1 MB and 500 MB. We will change only bs :

    • 1K – 1 MB

    • 500K – 500 MB

    11. The write or read speed is slow. The division of the cards was made based on the best readings and the readings of the cards recommended by Raspberry Pi , Orange Pi and other analogs Repka Pi .

    PS. For reasons unknown to me, but the Kingston Canvas Select Plus 64 GB card falls into the list of NOT eligible cards. A defective card may have come across, but according to the write speed test, it falls into this list.

    Table of MicroSD cards that DO NOT recommend for use with Repka Pi 3:

    Table of MicroSD cards that are suitable for use with Repka Pi 3:

    Also, 6 cards were purchased for the test from AliExpress. , bought based only on the description of the goods and its declared speed. 3 cards passed the tests and showed a very good result, these are 9 cards0110 KOOTION Pro, Fireurus Ultro Plus and ALUNX Ultra , and the worst card was OEIN system boot time was very long, write speed was between 3.3-10.7 MB/s , extremely unstable, also the KODAK card performed poorly.

    Conclusions: We recommend using proven cards from SanDisk , Kingston , Transcend , Samsung . But as tests of some cards from AliExpress have shown, the results of which are either the same as popular brands or even better, and the price may be several times lower and you plan to use them in your large-scale projects, it may make sense to run these cards through resource tests and see them lifetime.


    EMMC flash test via adapter on Repka Pi 3

    It was also decided to test EMMC from ODROID , NanoPi , Rock Pi via adapter.

    If you decide to use EMMC in Repka Pi or in other single board computers without regular emmc , for example in the same Raspberry Pi , then the most convenient options are from NanoPi and Rock Pi 9 0111 :


    Raspberry Pi 9 Card Test0025

    In this test there will be 11 cards that have shown the best results when tested on Repka Pi 3 . The test will be carried out only on a 500 MB file.

    Cards tested using Raspberry Pi OS (64-bit) Desktop .

    According to the results of testing, the speed of the cards is similar to the speed of the Repka Pi 3 models Raspberry Pi 3B and 3B + , of course there are minor differences both for better and for worse.

    Also, when testing on the Raspberry Pi 4B , the cards with the best result were selected, and the cards of the budget segment GoodRam got into this list.


    MicroSD card cloning

    To clone MicroSD we need a MicroSD card reader in USB 2.0.

    And the second MicroSD, I will copy from 8GB to 16GB. The volume of the card to be cloned must be the same or greater!

    Proceed to card cloning, all operations as mentioned at the beginning of the article are performed under root :

    1. Insert the card reader with the card into the USB port

    2. Determine the device name with the fdisk command (more about fdisk )

    Run the command:

    fdisk -l

    /dev/mmcblk0 is our MicroSD on which the system is running and which we are going to copy
    /dev/sda is the flash drive we are going to clone to

    Remember these devices!

    Attention: before starting cloning, I recommend removing all third-party flash drives from USB and leaving only the one to which you are going to copy

    1. We clone the MicroSD card

    To clone, run the command: 90 111

    dd if=/ dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sda bs=1M status=progress iflag=direct oflag=direct

    Let’s take a closer look at this command:
    if=/dev/mmcblk0 and of=/dev/sda you need to replace with your devices from the previous command!!!!
    bs=1M – we will copy in 1MB blocks
    status=progress – we will show the cloning process

    Run command for execution:

    Cloning speed will be low because Repka Pi USB 2. 0 .

    Waiting for completion… The larger the source map, the longer the cloning will take!

    And so the cloning was completed:

    No errors.

    Turn off the Repka Pi and insert the newly created map into our Repka Pi for testing.

    All is well!

    Now let’s repeat the cloning to MicroSD of the same size but different manufacturers. I took the cards that are in the photo below.

    Do fdisk -l

    As you can see, the actual size of the cards is different.

    Let’s try to start cloning:

    dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sda bs=1M status=progress iflag=direct oflag=direct

    Waiting for completion… 🙂

    now we returned the error “There is no free space left on the device”.

    It is important to remember that the volume of the card to which we clone must be either the same or more! How to copy the system to a card of any size, but not less than the size of the occupied space on the card, consider below.


    Creating a MicroSD image

    For backup storage and when we need to propagate an already configured system to other devices, it is better to create an image file.

    Let’s start creating the image file of our Repka OS , we will execute all commands in the same way under root :

    1. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port

    2. Determine the device name with command 9 0154 fdisk (more about fdisk )

    Run the command:

    fdisk -l

    We see that the name of our flash drive is /dev/sdb1 (you may have a different device name!) NTFS file system, and we also see that the main flash drive with which we will make the image has one partition /dev/mmcblk0p1 , and the card itself is called /dev/mmcblk0 . Let’s remember these two devices.

    1. Mount flash drive /dev/sdb1 on which we will make an image

    2 More about mkdir

    Mount the flash drive:

    mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

    More about mount

    1. Create an image with the command dd

    9 0002 dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/mnt/usb/RepkaOS.img bs=1M status=progress iflag=direct oflag=direct

    Waiting for completion… The process is not fast

    Image creation completed successfully!

    1. Checking for an image on the flash drive

    ls -lh /mnt/usb

    More about ls 9 0003

    As you can see Our image file has been created and has a size of 7.6G. The file size is equal to the file system size of the copied card. You can read how to write the created image to the card in the section “Writing an image to MicroSD”.


    File system extension. The parted and resize2fs utility

    After cloning the MicroSD card or writing the created image from the card to a larger MicroSD, you need to perform file system extensions

    1. Booting from the recorded MicroSD

    In our experiment, we copied from 8GB to 16GB

    And we see that the card has 14.86 GB, and the partition on it is 7.5G

    Now we need to expand the file system /dev/mmcblk0p1 to the entire available capacity of the card. The MicroSD name will be /dev/mmcblk0

    1. Expanding the partition size using the utility parted

      You can read more about parted on the website which we need:

      Repka OS utility parted already installed

      Started extending a partition.

      Entering the utility parted passing our device /dev/mmcblk0

    parted /dev/mmcblk0

    9 0002 After executing the command, we get to the command interface of the utility

    Now let’s display the partition table by typing command print

    (parted) print

    And here we also see that our disk is 15. 9 GB, and partition 1 8068 MB in GB will be approximately 7.8.

    Now we need to expand the file system to the entire MicroSD volume, for this we will execute the command resizepart specifying the partition number 1 and as the volume to which we need to expand 100%, which will mean all the free space

    ( parted) resizepart 1 100%

    the command has no output, now we can re-run the command print to make sure our command was executed and section 1 expanded

    (parted) print

    As we can see that our partition has become equal to the full size of the flash drive

    (parted) quit

    1. system using resize2fs

    After increasing the partition, you need to increase the file system on it

    Run the following command

    resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p1

    Where /dev/mmcblk0p1 is our partition on the disk

    Now let’s reboot the system and check.

    After the reboot, execute fdisk -l

    Done, the partition has been enlarged after cloning from a smaller flash drive!


    Image size reduction for Repka Pi. PiShrink utility

    As we have encountered an insufficient space error when cloning a flash drive, this error may occur when writing an image. Let’s make sure of this and try to write our created image to the same SanDisk 8GB card

    Burning the image as described in Burning an image to MicroSD using the utility dd

    When writing the image to a USB flash drive, an error also occurred, since the size of the cards differs by about 100MB

    Now let’s look at how to write this image to this card. To do this, we need to compress it and remove the empty reserved space from the image. And the utility will help us with this PiShrink

    pishrink.sh [-options] source_image_file [new_image_file]

    to [ ] optional parameter

    if you specify parameter source_image_file , then the utility copies source_image_file to a new file before starting work.

    More information about the PiShrink utility can be found on GitHub or gitflic.ru

    Installing PiShrink

    Downloading the latest version of the utility

    900 02 wget -O pishrink.sh https://gitflic.ru/project/ screator/pi-shrink-en/blob/raw?file=pishrink.sh

    Make bootable the executable pishrink.sh

    chmod +x pishrink.sh

    Now move the script

    901 69

    mv pishrink.sh /usr/local/bin/

    Installation utility completed!

    We mount the flash drive with the image

    Now let’s insert the flash drive with the image that we made in the chapter Creating a MicroSD Image.

    Determine the device name with the command fdisk -l

    We see that the name of our flash drive is /dev/sda1 NTFS file system.

    We mount our flash drive on which the image lies.

    Create a folder

    I have already created this folder from the previous section of the article.

    mkdir /mnt/usb

    More about mkdir

    Mounting the flash drive

    900 02 mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

    More about mount

    Let’s go to our flash drive folder 003

    I have only one image on my flash drives

    Let’s see the size of our file with the command du

    You can read more about du at losst.pro

    du -h RepkaOS.img

    Image size 7.6 GB 9 0111

    The flash drive was mounted and made sure that it has an image to be compressed.

    Compressing an image with the PiShrink utility

    To compress an image, just execute the following command:

    pishrinkru. sh RepkaOS.img RepkaOS_new.img

    We will compress into a new file. The compression process will take quite a long time.

    Image compression completed. It shrunk to 200 Mb .

    Now write the resulting image to the same card SanDisk 8 GB .

    Now, as we can see, our image was registered successfully! You can insert the card into Repka Pi and check it out.

    Let’s execute the command fdisk -l

    The recorded card started up successfully and now you can expand the file system as you did in the section “File system expansion. Parted and resize2fs utility”

    Conclusions: Using the PiShrink utility, you can shrink the image to its actual size and remove empty sectors of the map image. And store an already compressed optimized image.

    Make a DIY phone case with glitter and Mod Podge in four easy steps! Make several glitter phone cases – one for yourself and some for your friends. They’re great for gifts!

    Skills Required: Beginner. There are just a few steps to this project and no previous crafting skill set is required.

    Hi there! Holly here from Club Crafted, and I’ve found the perfect DIY for keeping my phone looking fresh and colorful.

    This easy-to-make glittery DIY phone case is worthy of a unicorn, and it’s durable so I won’t track glitter with me everywhere I go (not that that’s a bad thing).

    It’s a great craft for teens and perfect for back to school if your kid wants to refresh the look of their device. But of course adults can do it too.

    It’s easy to find simple clear cases for just about every phone on the market, and they’re the perfect base for fun projects like these. Here’s how to give your phone case a glittery makeover with classic Mod Podge!

    (check out glitter crafts made with Mod Podge!)

    Gather These Supplies

    • Clear phone case (you can get these at the dollar store)
    • Mod Podge Gloss
    • Glitter
    • Paint brush

    I recommend cleaning the case with rubbing alcohol and cotton balls to remove all finger oils before beginning. If your case is really slick, consider using a fine grit sandpaper to rough up the surface so the Mod Podge adheres better.

    Note, I brushed around the buttons on my case. This is optional, but due to high use, the glitter will probably not stick well to buttons that are part of the case.

    The last layer of Mod Podge helps seal the glitter in place so that it will last longer and (hopefully) shed less.

    Tip: if you are pretty hard on your cell phone cases, I recommend using an additional brush on or spray on clear acrylic sealer over the top – something like Minwax polycrylic (which is a brush on). This will give you even more durability.

    You CAN also use a spray sealer on top of the glitter if you want less shedding. A lot of glitter dulls when you spray seal it. SO my personal favorite is the Krylon Glitter Clear Coat. It works REALLY well from personal experience!

    You’re sure to make a statement with this colorful, sparkly phone case, and I bet no one will believe that it’s a DIY.

    Materials

    • Clear phone case (you can get these at the dollar store)
    • Mod Podge Gloss
    • Glitter

    Tools

    • Paint brush

    Instructions

    1. Cover your work surface with newspaper or similar. Using a paint brush, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the outside portion of the phone case (including the sides).
    2. Immediately pour glitter over the glued area and set down for 2 minutes. Then tip over the case and allow excess glitter to fall back onto the parchment.
    3. Repeat! Add glue, then glitter, then allow to sit for 2 minutes. This ensures the glitter entirely covers the case.
    4. Tap off excess glitter and check for bald areas. Repeat the process of adding Mod Podge and glitter; just make sure to add a thin layer of Mod Podge to fill in the bald areas so that you don’t cause clumping or unevenness.
    5. Once you’re satisfied with the case’s appearance and the previous layers of glue have dried, brush one last layer of Mod Podge over the glitter and set aside to dry completely.

    Notes

    I find that fine glitter works best for this project.

    If your phone case is tacky after drying, use a high gloss clear acrylic spray to further seal the case and remove the tackiness.

    Internet mobile for laptops: Portable WiFi Devices for Travel Internet – Rolling Stone

    Portable WiFi Devices for Travel Internet – Rolling Stone

    If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, Rolling Stone may receive an affiliate commission.

    With working remotely becoming increasingly common, staying connected is more important than ever. A mobile hotspot is a portable device that creates WiFi from a cellular data plan, allowing you to connect your phone, tablet, laptop, or most any other device to Internet service when you need to be online.

    This isn’t just for people on the road or encountering dead-zones when you need reception (though it’s great for that too). A hotspot can work well if your home WiFi goes down, is unreliable, or even if you don’t have it and don’t want to rely solely on cellular data (or smartphone “hotspot”) to connect.

    What Are the Best Mobile Hotspots?

    Here are a few things to consider when shopping for the best portable WiFi device (a.k.a. a mobile hotspot) online.

    Plans: Once you purchase your portable hotspot, you’ll still need to sign up for a data plan to pair it with. Unfortunately, “unlimited” doesn’t always mean unlimited. Always read the fine print on a plan to know what your boundaries are. Some plans include enough data — around 100GB — that you’ll probably never use it up anyway, but it’s always better to have it in excess than be constantly worried if you’re going over the limit.

    Buy Verizon Mobile Hotspot Plans $20+

    Other plans really do have unlimited data, but cap the speed at around 5mbps. It’s enough to get the basics done, like office-type tasks, emailing and streaming music, but for anything faster, it can quickly become lagging and frustrating. Wireless companies also give priority to their direct customers when it comes to download speeds, which means yours may be slowed down at peak times. Also: if you’ll be traveling all over the globe, go for one that can auto-connect to local networks in each country, bypassing the hassle of local SIM cards.

    Buy AT&T Mobile Hotspot Plans $2.78/month+

    Devices: How many devices will you need set up and connected all at once? If it’s just one, a standard plan and less powerful hotspot might be fine. But if it’s multiple devices, or an entire family will need to use it, make sure your desired hotspot can handle the bandwidth. The best mobile hotspots can usually handle up to and around 20 devices, enough to keep your squad connected on a long trip.

    Editor’s picks

    Battery: When you’re away from a power source for long stretches, you’ll need a built-in battery that can last awhile. A typical Lithium-ion battery around 3000mAh should give you enough fuel for a full day, around 11 hours or so of continuous usage, while a 6000mAh nets about 18 hours, and even more in standby mode. With a powerful enough battery inside, you can also sometimes use your portable WiFi device as a battery itself, to charge up other devices when they’re running low.

    Security: Having your own hotspot means you won’t need to connect to the networks around you while traveling, which can often be unsecured. A pre-encrypted hotspot with SSID and password protection takes security a step further, protecting your devices and personal data.

    Ports: A mobile hotspot with ports, such as microSD or USB, means that you can stream media from an external flash or hard drive right to all the connected devices on the network. Having an Ethernet port lets you plug in to a trusted hardwired network, and of course a spot for a wall plug is vital to keep it fully charged.

    Size: If you’ll be keeping this mostly stationary and set up in an office, having a large and bulky unit won’t matter as much. But for taking it traveling with you, small is best, and there’s plenty of size-wise options that won’t weigh you down. Some are even compact enough to fit in a pocket, making it ideal for staying online on the move.

    1. Netgear Nighthawk M1 Mobile Hotspot

    A 2.4-inch LED screen built right into this portable WiFi device shows real-time data usage and signal strength, and the 5040mAh battery can usually last a whole day, even under heavy strain.

    A USB port is included and ideal for things like sharing data from a flash drive or external hard drive, along with an Ethernet and USB-C ports as well. And at only 0.53 pounds, this won’t weigh down your backpack or suitcase.

    Buy Netgear Nighthawk M1 Mobile Hotspot $379.99

    2. TP-Link N300 Portable Travel Router

    This little device keeps you connected on the go, and is tiny enough to fit into any laptop bag, purse, or even a pocket. You’ll be able to create your own privately routed WiFi network, keeping your devices safe and separate from publicly accessed networks such as hotels and parks.

    Integrating with third-party products like Chromecast and Amazon Fire Stick is easy for streaming anywhere at up to 300mbps, and all your devices automatically connect to it after the first time, every time.

    It can also be used as a WiFi bridge, range extender, and there’s an Ethernet port for wired connection too.

     

    Buy TP-Link N300 Portable Travel Router $29.99

    3. Inseego M2000 ON The GO Ultimate Hotspot

    With a 2.4-inch touchscreen color display, this 5G hotspot is easy for any user, with a familiar interface that lets you see things like who’s connected and how much data is being downloaded.

    This supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, automatically selecting which works best for the activity you’re doing. It’s also secure too, with WPA3, VPN passthrough, and individualized encryption.

    Not only does this have a massive 5050mAh battery, it is a battery as well – you can use this as a power bank to fuel up a device that’s running low. And if your 5G connection drops out, you’ll still have fast Internet, as the hotspot defaults to 4G speeds.

    Buy Inseego M2000 ON The GO Ultimate Hotspot $106. 95

    4. ZTE MAX Connect Mobile WiFi Hotspot

    Stay connected all over the world with this hotspot that works with a plethora of plan options. The unlocked ZTE Max supports dual-band WiFi connection (2.4 GHz and 5GHz), and can hit download speeds of 150mbps.

    Four LED indicators easily show you how much battery is left, along with signal strength, and can handle up to ten devices at once. The 2000mAh battery can last up to 10 hours continuously, or remain in standby mode for up to a week – perfect for long trips when it’s packed away.

    Buy ZTE MAX Connect Mobile WiFi Hotspot $49.99

    How to Get Internet on Your Laptop Everywhere? [Comparison of Options]

     

    In today’s digitized world, laptops have become the ultimate workstations. Still, despite being portable by design, they lack one important feature – out-of-the-box Internet access. The majority of models in the market require an access point or an external device to go online. In our age of Internet-enabled toothbrushes and kettles, this feels frustrating, leaving many people wondering how to get Internet anywhere on a laptop.

    In this article, we’ll summarize the four main ways of doing it to help you get a seamless experience the way you want it.

    Short FAQ

    Even a question as specific as “How to get Internet access anywhere on a laptop” can mean different things for different people, which is why the answers to it are all over the place. To make sure we are on the same page, let’s begin with a crash course on connectivity and deal with a couple of misconceptions in the process.

    Can I Access My Internet without a Router and Modem?

    This depends on what you mean by router and modem, but yes, you can. The word “router” has become synonymous with Internet access, yet strictly speaking, routers are not necessary for connectivity per se. Their purpose is to share the connection with several devices, which means you can get online without them – by plugging the cable into your laptop directly, for instance.

    Now, the modem is a different story. Technically, this piece of hardware is what enables your laptop’s connection in the first place. Today, they come in many shapes and sizes, from a large and expensive satellite modem to a portable USB modem. However, the modulation and demodulation usually happens outside your laptop anyway, so, unless you are looking for a specific piece of hardware like the USB wireless modem for travel, you won’t need one.

    What Is the Best Internet Device for a Laptop?

    Depending on what you want to use it for, this will be either a 4G USB modem, a mobile hotspot, a satellite modem, a public WiFi device for laptop, or even nothing at all. Each option has its strengths and weaknesses and will only work well for some tasks, so don’t jump in right away before knowing what you are looking for.

    Is Only a USB Modem Enough to connect to the Internet?

    It is – as long as your modem has everything it needs for an Internet connection. No-contract, unlimited wireless Internet is not something you get out of thin air – you need a SIM card or a device with eSIM technology on board. Then, all you need is a suitable data plan and you are all set.

    How I Will Check If My Laptop is Connected With 4G or 3G?

    The details may vary from system to system, but in broad strokes, the process will look like this:

    1. Check which connection is offered by your data plan
    2. Check whether the SIM card supports 4G
    3. Check whether your device supports the desired mode

    Alternatively, you can choose from a plethora of software solutions that give detailed information about the connection, although their reliability varies depending on the setup you are using.

    Can I set a Wireless Connection with My USB Modem Without Laptop?

    With most of the current devices you can, although the modem may need to be configured beforehand. A modern portable Internet modem is an autonomous device and will work entirely on its own as long it has a power source – either a battery or a cable plugged into a USB port. Simpler models that have little to no settings may be able to work out of the box, while more sophisticated ones would need a one-time setup, but after that, you’re good to go.

     

    How to Connect My Laptop to the Internet Anywhere?

    Now that we’re through with the introduction, let’s look at the ways to get online from your laptop from anywhere. A word of warning, though: the word “anywhere” is interpreted differently by different people – some understand it as “away from home” while others seek a way to go off the grid entirely. We’ve tried to cover all the bases, which is why some of the listed options may seem an overkill while others won’t cut it for you at all.

    1. Mobile Tethering

    The most readily available way to connect to the Internet on a laptop anywhere is making a hotspot for the laptop from your phone. Availability is also its greatest advantage – most people that might need a connection away from home probably have a suitable phone with them anyway. The feature is also supported natively on both Android and iOS and can be set up relatively easily. As a cherry on top, such a connection is fully wireless, which is very convenient for trips – you can literally carry around a hotspot in your pocket.

    However, this method also has its trade-offs. For starters, you are still sharing your mobile Internet with a laptop, which means you have the same traffic and bandwidth restrictions. This will not be an issue for modest tasks like attending a business meeting or fetching a document. However, streaming a couple of documentaries on Netflix may easily burn through your entire monthly allowance and leave you stranded offline. Not only that, mobile tethering is resource-heavy and will drain your phone’s battery in no time. This can, of course, be addressed by plugging your phone into the laptop’s USB port, which kind of defeats the purpose of a wireless network.

    The verdict: A fallback plan that requires no additional hardware and might save you in some circumstances but hardly a sustainable solution for daily use.

    2. 4G Mobile USB Modem

    Another way to get internet on a laptop anywhere is to use a separate device. These come in many shapes and sizes and go by different names:

    • Mobile hotspot
    • 4G laptop stick
    • MiFi
    • Portable modem

    These gadgets range in complexity from simple adapters for SIM cards to fully-featured modems that effortlessly handle an entire network of devices. The basic premise is the same, though – the 4G modem connects to the mobile network like a phone, then shares the connection with a laptop or shares it like a router. However, as a device designed specifically for connectivity, it handles the task much more efficiently and reliably than a phone.

    One downside of this approach is the need to have separate data plans for laptop modem and phone, so it’s not a “wireless Internet for laptops no contract” case. Recognizing this, laptop modem manufacturers add the possibility to choose from several ISPs and partner with mobile carriers to offer attractive deals. Another apparent limitation is that even the best 4G LTE USB modem will not work outside the service provider’s coverage, so technically, it’s more of “almost anywhere.”

    The verdict: A versatile and reliable solution that will cover most Internet users’ needs.

    3. Satellite Internet

    This is the closest to the “Internet anywhere” concept, although it is also the least convenient one. Unlike the options above, all of which rely on mobile network coverage, in this case, the signal is transmitted from satellites, so you will get connected as long as you have clear skies above. You will still need to buy a data plan, of course, but otherwise, it does not restrict you in any way, making it a perfect option literally anywhere on the planet.

    Unfortunately, freedom comes at a cost. First, the technology is not yet widespread, so the range of offers on the market is modest. Besides, establishing a connection to the satellite internet requires a modem and an antenna, both of which are quite bulky – not exactly a fit for the digital nomad lifestyle. In other words, “anywhere” actually means “in any one spot and that spot only.”

    The verdict: Indispensable in some extreme cases but neither portable nor practical for daily use compared to alternatives.

    4. Public WiFi

    This is more of an honorable mention than an actual entry, yet it deserves a place on our list. Public WiFis are firmly embedded in the modern Internet landscape thanks to the efforts of coffee shops, restaurants, and airports offering free WiFi zones. Nowadays, a new variety has emerged, known as metropolitan WiFi or municipal wireless network. The idea is to establish a citywide network so that you won’t have to search a WiFi hotspot for a laptop in a nearby Starbucks.

    The biggest downside of public WiFi is its availability. Aside from rare cases of well-managed municipal networks, you are essentially at the mercy of local businesses and amenities. This may be fine if you enjoy the thrill of adventure, but calling it an answer to “How to get Internet on my laptop anywhere” would be a stretch. And then there’s the issue of security – public WiFis are notoriously risky, and while you can deal with some of them by using VPN, in the end, the entire endeavor is hardly worth it.

    The verdict: Can be a lifesaver sometimes, but hardly qualifies as an “Internet anywhere.”

    Wrapping Up

    As you can see, there is no one-fits-all answer to the question “How to get Internet access anywhere on a laptop?” Some people will seek a way to get online without buying any new gadgets, others will try to repurpose the ones they already own, still others would not stop until they have a fully autonomous, off-the-grid setup. In any case, some properties will have to be sacrificed for each specific use.

    A modern portable modem for laptop is probably a sweet spot in terms of mobility, convenience, and security, with public WiFi and satellite Internet representing the extremes of availability and autonomy. So, unless you are planning to set camp in the wild or enjoy the thrill of connecting to an unprotected access point, a wireless modem for laptop is all you’ll ever need.

     

    overview of a profitable tariff plan with unlimited internet for a laptop – Moscow and the region

    We talk about the “Internet for devices” tariff and useful additional services.

    December 18, 2020

    6 minutes to read

    One way to connect a laptop to the network is a router that distributes Wi-Fi to several devices at once. For the SIM card installed in the router, you will need to select the appropriate tariff.

    In Tele2, this is “Internet for devices”: it is suitable for connecting a laptop to a network and allows you to use the Internet at high speed.

    “Internet for Devices” tariff features

    “Internet for Devices” is suitable for both homebodies and travelers: unlimited Internet is available throughout Russia for a fixed monthly fee.

    The default tariff plan includes the paid service “Access for modems and routers”. Thanks to it you can:

    • get unlimited access to the Internet;
    • distribute traffic via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth or via a USB connection.

    To manage the “Access for modems and routers” service, log in to your personal account on the website or in the “My Tele2” mobile application. There you can check the status of the service, disable or enable it again, these actions are also available using USSD commands:

    • connect – *116*881*1#
    • disable – *116*881*0#
    • check status – *116*881#

    To use the tariff in a router or modem, the service “Access for modems and routers” is required. Without it, the tariff is available only for tablets.

    The “Internet for Devices” tariff also provides the ability to make calls and exchange SMS, but such communication is paid separately.

    Maximum speed

    For those who use a laptop to watch movies and series, participate in web conferences and spend a lot of time playing online games, a high-speed connection is required. To do this, the “Internet for devices” tariff includes a paid service “40 GB at maximum speed”.

    When using this service, the connection speed is set to the maximum possible level and remains at this level until you use up 40 GB of traffic. After that, the speed returns to the previous level – up to 4 Mbps.

    If you have not exhausted the 40 GB traffic package in a month, the unused balance is not transferred to the next month.

    If you think that speeds up to 4 Mbps are enough to solve your tasks, you can disable the service in your personal account on the website, in the My Tele2 mobile application, or using USSD commands:

    • connect – * 116*882*1#
    • disable – *116*882*0#
    • check status – *116*882#

    How to connect Internet for Devices

    We offer several ways to switch to this tariff:

    • in your personal account on the website or in the My Tele2 mobile application;
    • when ordering a Tele2 SIM card in our online store;
    • when concluding an agreement with Tele2 – in any of our offices.

    When choosing the “Internet for devices” tariff when connecting to Tele2, you pay only 50% of the cost of the tariff and services “40 GB at maximum speed” and “Access for modems and routers”. The new billing period will start in 2 weeks. From that moment on, the subscription fee will be charged in full.

    If you need help connecting or disconnecting services, our support team is always ready to help. Contact the operators in a way convenient for you:

    • in your personal account on the website or the My Tele2 mobile application;
    • in the online chat on the site.

    HP Notebook Batteries

    Here you can choose a new battery for yourself

    How to replace the battery on an HP laptop is a question that every user of technology asks sooner or later. Even the most modern and reliable models become unusable due to careless handling or natural wear and tear. It’s unavoidable. The process of energy synthesis is based on a chemical reaction. When the cells inside the battery cease to interact with their former efficiency, the capacity is first lost, then the battery stops charging at all. As a rule, the life of the cell is 300-500 charge cycles. That is, 1.5-2 years. If you work more often on the network than offline, this time period can increase up to 3 years.

    Laptop battery HP Pavilion 17-bs009cy 11. 1V Original quality

    It’s pointless to repair – it’s a waste of time and money with no guaranteed effect. But you can and should put in a new power source. Make it easy.

    When it’s time to change

    The most common symptom of a cell failure is a system message that it is not charging. A cross appears next to the battery icon at the bottom right, Windows sends notifications about the recommendation to contact the service or install a new part.

    Do not rush to get upset! First you need to reboot the system and reset the BIOS settings. It might help if the message was the result of an electronics failure. If not, check the battery with a special utility like Battery Optimizer. The program will show the current wear. If it is more than 50%, you cannot do without installing a new drive.

    You should also think about upgrading in the following cases:

    • The laptop functions without being connected to the power supply much less than before – for example, 30-40 minutes instead of 2-2. 5 hours, although you do not run games, do not watch videos, and just surf the internet.
    • The battery is swollen, the contacts are oxidized.
    • The equipment does not turn on when it is disconnected from the network.

    How to replace the battery on an HP notebook if it is removable

    In older models, the battery can be removed without dismantling the case. It is fast, convenient, saves time and does not require special skills. But first you still have to prepare:

    • turn off the laptop, disconnect the Internet cable and power cable;
    • close the lid;
    • turn the gadget upside down on the table.

    Small things left: move the battery locks to the “open” position, partially remove the part, and then lift the front edge and remove the energy store completely. Set it aside. Then take a new spare part, remove the protective packaging from it, insert the bottom edge into the compartment and fix it. You should hear a click – this means that the battery is in place.

    The manufacturer recommends that the replacement be carried out very carefully, using an antistatic wrist strap or rubber gloves. And also be careful with the body parts – some of them are sharp, be careful not to get caught.

    After completing the work, return the device to its original position, connect it to the power supply and check the functionality of the battery using special applications.

    How to change the battery on an HP laptop if it is not removable

    Manufacturers make modern gadgets as thin and light as possible – this increases demand, because the main quality of a laptop is mobility. True, maintainability suffers: to get to the battery pack, now it is not enough to unfasten the clips. The body needs to be disassembled. We tell you how to do it.

    Step 1 – preparation

    Unplug the appliance, turn off the gadget and disconnect all cables, chargers, mouse and other peripherals. Prepare your workspace – you will need a flat hard surface (it is best to do all the steps on the table), a screwdriver and alcohol wipes. They are needed in case you come into contact with contacts on the motherboard or other parts: alcohol will help remove fingerprints.

    Step 2 – take apart the laptop

    Place the gadget upside down and remove all the screws holding the case together. There may be 10-12, the exact number depends on the model. It is better to use a special screwdriver and unscrew it manually, and not using an electronic device – this way you will definitely not damage the thread.

    Once the screws are removed and put away in a safe place, grab a guitar pick, a flat plastic spatula, or an unused discount card. Place it in the gap between the parts of the case and carefully wring out the clips around the perimeter.

    Remove the cover carefully so as not to uproot the cables.

    Step 3 – remove the old battery

    The battery is located in the upper right corner, above the motherboard. She has already been photographed. There is nothing complicated in detaching: unscrew the fastening screws, disconnect the cable that goes to the board, pick up one end of the battery pack and remove the part.

    Everything is ready, you can install a new one! Although if you haven’t checked the thermal paste for a long time and haven’t cleaned the cooling system, it’s time to do it – the laptop is still disassembled.

    Step 4 – install a new battery

    We insert the spare part in place of the old one. Pay attention to the location of the cable – it must be very carefully “tucked” under the case so that the contacts remain outside.

    It remains to fix the block with the screws that we unscrewed earlier. Screw them in carefully: too much pressure on the screwdriver can damage the case, fasteners, or even the motherboard.

    Step 5 – assemble the laptop

    When all the parts are in place, fixed, the battery is connected to the connector on the board, you can return the cover to its place, screw it on. That’s all! It remains only to connect the network cable and check how the device works.

    Be sure to charge the battery to 100% before going offline.

    How to choose a new battery and extend its life

    Replacing the battery on an HP laptop allows you to fully return the functionality of your laptop. However, for this, it is important to choose the right components. The easiest way is to find an analogue according to the model – to do this, enter the name in the search box (in its entirety, along with all the letters and numbers, and not just the series!) And see what options the site offers.

    You can also find instructions or documents if you bought the device relatively recently. Or visit the manufacturer’s website – there should be the necessary information. If you have already disassembled the case, searching by the part number of the battery pack is also suitable.

    Be sure to compare the power, voltage, capacity of the energy storage device. These settings must match. The voltage is especially critical – it can differ by a maximum of 0.4V, otherwise sensitive electronics will burn out when connected to a power outlet.

    After reinstalling the battery, handle the gadget carefully:

    • Keep away from sunlight and heating radiators, convectors. Observe operating temperature. It’s in every manual.
    • Purchase an uninterruptible power supply or surge protector with a good level of protection so that the battery does not have to “accept” the voltage fluctuations that are inevitable for household networks.
    • Tune your power and performance settings – it’s better to choose a power saving mode or a balanced one, so all systems will be optimized.
    • Do not overload the device when you work on it offline.

    Brought my phone in for a battery replacement. The specialist changed it for me quite quickly and inexpensively. I have been using the phone for about two weeks now and I have no complaints. While the charge is holding well.

    Alexander Polyakov

    I come for the second time with a screen replacement. I bought a module on Ali, but I didn’t manage it myself, due to the lack of experience and a normal tool (a set of tools from Ali came disgusting). The master delivered in 5 minutes (+/-). Everything is clear and fast. Well, the price is more than reasonable.

    Dmitry Styrov

    Master Anton performed diagnostics as soon as possible and identified a problem with 7 IPhone! Within 2 hours, all damaged/faulty parts were replaced! The phone is functioning and the repair warranty is 90 days insure! The possibility of paying by card was a pleasant surprise! Reception / repair point within walking distance from Babushkinskaya metro station! I recommend!

    Ivanenkov Roman

    I can not call this service good …. This is too pale a word. Service on Domodedovo – SUPER DELICIOUS!!! Master Igor is simply a magician and wizard! Clearly, literally in a minute made an assumption about the malfunction. Focused on price. I did not have time to get home, after putting the phone in for repair, as I received a message about the successful completion of the repair. The cause of the malfunction and the cost of the repair were fully consistent with those declared at the time of delivery for repair. I am not a young enthusiastic girl, moreover, I myself am a serviceman in another area, I can objectively assess the quality of services. I am delighted. Separate respect and respect to Igor. The man knows his business.

    Alina Satyukova

    The first thing I want to say is – thank you for the prompt resolution of my issue and for the desire of the guys to help as much as possible. Repaired my favorite Samsung. I was walking from a nearby bar in the morning and broke my phone. She raised her head in tears and saw a Pedant.ru sign across the road. In the afternoon I was already there and the next day I took my phone as new. There were different options for the price / quality of the display, but the guys advised exactly the original – that is, exactly the same as what I had. It also seems to me that the manager liked me and he made me some kind of display protection as a gift – it is practically invisible, but after that, my daughter dropped the phone, I picked it up with bated breath and the display turned out to be alive. \

    VM

    The speaker on the phone began to work poorly, I can hear someone well during a conversation, some are simply disgusting. I thought about changing my phone, but I went to your center on Novoslobodskaya. In 2 minutes they cleaned the speaker and everything was fine. Was very pleasantly surprised. Thank you! Keep it up!

    Olga

    The phone was fixed quickly at a low cost. Very satisfied, thank you very much.

    Viktor Petrovich

    I express my deep gratitude to the Service! And, personally, master Alexei! Worked great and solved my problem! Thank you! Repaired two Samsung smartphones.

    Nicholas

    I liked the interior of the office. The employees are literate. They solve all issues on the gadget. They made repairs within an hour. I liked the guarantee: I have 3 months. So I recommend it. The price, by the way, is sane.

    Ilya

    Many thanks to the service at Novoslobodskaya metro station! Applied on 04/24/2022. Everything is made for you! Honest, fast, high quality with a guarantee!

    Olga

    Thank you very much for excellent service. Satisfied with the repair. Everything is prompt and friendly.

    Anastasia

    Thank you very much service center. Convenient work schedule. You can sign up through social networks. They give a guarantee, which is the most important thing when repairing a phone. The phone broke down, the master arrived at the appointed time and place. He assessed the damage and took all measures to eliminate the cause of the failure. The owner is polite and apparently knowledgeable. The time of his work took no more than 20 minutes.

    Irek

    I turned today with a banal problem for a specialist, which I am not) The reaction to the appeal is instant, so to speak, “giving up everything.”
    Received my smartphone back serviceable in just 5 minutes.
    Master in one word! Thank you.
    I recommend, credit!

    Evgenia

    Good afternoon I recommend the service on Mayakovskaya. Professional, responsive and caring employees who are ready to help the “blonde with a smartphone”. They set up, updated and explained in detail what’s what, for which they deserve a big human thanks!

    Alexander

    Great service, courteous and efficient staff. No complaints, everything is great.

    Artem

    After the fall, the phone started to turn off constantly, I came to this service, the specialist quickly found the problem, did everything quickly and efficiently, for which I am very grateful to him. They made a big discount))) in general, I recommend the service, we can’t find better specialists in the city!!!

    Alice

    I want to express my gratitude to the employee Timofey for the high-quality and fast work. Good customers to you!

    Timur

    Good afternoon Thank you very much for the fast and high-quality work on replacing the display on the iphone and the protective glass as a gift, it’s very nice, now my phone is like new.

    Igor

    Many thanks to Rostislav for the quickly completed work, for honesty and quality. We did not expect that everything would be done so quickly and they would not even take the money.

    Larisa

    The service is really good, help is timely, good service, everything was explained and told, a small minus that they do not fit into the declared 90 minutes, but still they did everything at the highest level. I will definitely use again and recommend to everyone. The prices justify themselves and the efforts of the staff. Everything is quite popular and accessible.

    Svetlana

    in just a few minutes again came to life in my phone!!!!
    thank you, young man! You are very attentive and sensible in your business!!!
    I recommend in the Arena shopping center !!!!

    Alexey

    Good day everyone! Back in winter, I turned to this service with a serious problem of my then new Xiaomi Redmi-8 (six months from the date of purchase). The screen was buggy in my mobile, and in such a way that some operations were performed on their own and could not be controlled. There were even cases when, having entered the Sberbank Online application, a transfer could be automatically made. Typing any text in SMS became impossible: it turned out some kind of ABRACADABRA … In short, the phone began to create problems for me in everything. And I had to turn to specialists. I found the address on the internet. From a detailed conversation with the master, I immediately realized that nothing would be imposed on me here, so I trusted him. I was offered several options for solving the problem with a detailed description of the costs (the prices were the same as on the website). I chose to replace the screen… And I didn’t regret it! The very next day when everything was done. my problems disappeared as if they never existed… RESPECT and RESPECT!!! I recommend!

    Maxim

    Fortunately, I rarely use smartphone repair services, but . … everything happens for the first time. And the first positive experience in this business is very important. The first time I came with the fact that the phone was not charging from charging. In 2 minutes!!! the master cleaned the connector on the phone and did not charge a penny for it. shock. On the radio market, they would probably say that you got a guy – there is a lot of work with the replacement of a half-phone. Therefore, the choice of the center for the second time (drowned an iPhone in the pool) was obvious, although driving from Odintsovo to the center of Moscow is still a pleasure. And everything is great again. And it’s not just the cost of an old iPhone, but the fact that I really don’t like the process of transferring data to a new one. In general, quickly, efficiently and at a reasonable price. And many thanks to Lydia Konovalova for constantly keeping me informed about the stages of the repair. It’s so nice when such nice people help you solve your temporary life troubles.
    So far everything is fine with the phone. I hope for a long time. Thanks guys.

    Andrew

    Good afternoon Once again I turned to your service center and was once again satisfied. Parts are always in stock, repairs take a minimum of time, you will not have time to drink coffee before everything is ready. Great artists, thank you! I advise everyone!

    Lali

    Competent and polite staff, quality repairs! The best place in town, I recommend it to everyone!

    Nikolai Yurievich Polyansky

    Ekaterina Romanova

    Lily

    Very polite staff, everything is fast and efficient, I was satisfied with the services provided

    Karim

    I really liked the quality of service in this service center. In a couple of minutes they fixed the problem with charging the phone, free of charge, politely and efficiently. I recommend this center.

    Anastasia

    Came in to replace the charging port. The young man looked and just cleaned it. It took less than 5 minutes. They didn’t take the money. Highly recommended

    Kira

    I broke my phone badly, before going to the salon I consulted on the phone about prices and opening hours, I really liked the chat, politeness and quick response to any questions. The repair itself took less than the promised time. On the website and in the salon it is written that as a gift a free protective glass, unfortunately, the glass was not delivered to me, because it was not available, but they made cleaning the phone a bonus. Most of all, I was surprised by the papers that I signed, in the previous salon, in which I had already repaired another phone, there were no guarantees and contracts, I really liked the responsibility of the salon!
    The prices are average but the quality of the work is amazing!
    I can safely recommend this salon0003
    Ivan

    I addressed a problem on the iPhone 7, the phone did not charge, everything was explained and told on the spot, a very competent employee Alexander, answered all questions, offered alternative options, did his job efficiently and quickly, I will definitely contact you again

    Wrap around the ear headphones: Best True Wireless Sports Earbuds With Ear Hooks for 2023

    How Do Hook/Loop Earbuds Work? – Rolling Stone

    If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, Rolling Stone may receive an affiliate commission.

    The latest and greatest wireless earbuds often come with upgrades that can make anyone’s head spin. But even though these new buds are sleeker, smarter and sound better than before, for some people, it’s still unfortunately way too easy to lose them. Enter the best earbuds with ear hooks.

    From the treadmill to the train, these wireless earbuds are designed with security and functionality at top of mind. We searched for the best, most secure earbuds you can buy right now, and selected five top-rated pairs of hook earbuds that are a little easier to keep track of, wherever you wear them to.

    How Do Earbuds With Ear Hooks Work?

    Not every pair of earbuds will offer the same set of features. Here’s what to look for when shopping for the best earbuds with ear hooks (a. k.a. “hook earbuds”) online.

    Trending

    Over-Ear vs. On-Ear Hooks: You’ll find a range of earbuds with hooks these days. Some models come with hooks that wrap around or over the top of your ears, while other picks feature on-ear tips, or sometimes called “wings,” that fasten to the inner part of your ear for a secure fit. We like both styles, but the design really comes down to your preference.

    Comfort: If you’re used to wearing traditional in-ear buds, wearing a pair with ear hooks will take a bit of getting used to. The best hook earbuds should wrap around your ears without weighing them down (similar to how a good face mask should loop around your ears gently, without “flapping” them down). A good pair of hook earbuds should also stay put even while you’re on the move. If you feel them tugging or pulling at your ears, you should adjust them and move them closer to the temples, rather than hanging off the flap of your ears.

    Bluetooth Connectivity: While you can find earbuds that come with a cable, we chose ones that are completely wireless for this guide. No need to find where you put that headphone jack adapter — you can simply pair them with your phone or Bluetooth device.

    Charging Time and Battery Life: Because the below picks are wireless, you’ll need to consider their battery life. The picks in this guide offer enough runtime for an entire day of use at the office, rangig from six to 24 hours of battery life. Note: They all have charging cases that can provide a power boost when they run out of juice.

    Editor’s picks

    Water Resistance: Most of the best earbuds with ear hooks are ideal for workouts. So if you’re a runner shopping for earbuds, look for an IPX rating that will tell you if they’re sweat- or water-resistant to a certain level before purchasing them.

    What Are the Best Earbuds With Ear Hooks?

    If you’re going to invest in great earbuds, why not go with the best pairs that are harder to lose? Here are our favorite hooked earbuds, made by brands like Bose, JBL and Beats.

    1. Bose Sport Open Earbuds

    WORKOUT-APPROVED

    You might initially think that a pair of earbuds that don’t even go inside your ears will likely slip around on you. But that’s not the case with these Bose Open Sport buds, thanks to their ear hooks designed to wrap over and curve around the natural shape of your ear. With their sweat-resistant IPX4 rating, get them for your workouts, and keep them for their eight-hour battery life.

    2. Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds

    ADJUSTABLE EAR HOOKS

    These had us at “adjustable.” While these Powerbeats Pro earbuds come with over-ear hooks, you can actually tweak how tight you want them against the back of your ears. The sweat-resistant earbuds also include a few different pairs of ear tips, so that you can more easily find the most comfortable fit inside your ears. Comfort and fit aside, you’ll be able to listen to music for up to nine hours on a charge, as well as wear them for phone calls thanks to the built-in microphones.

    3. Bose QuietComfort Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

    BEST SOUND

    No, these buds don’t have hooks that go over your ears, but their tiny little ear hooks have consistently frozen them in place in our ears during testing. That perk barely scratches the surface of why they’re worth buying though. We constantly wear them around the house and outdoors because of their noise-cancelling sound, plus their easy touch controls make it a cinch to adjust settings. They also come with a wide range of settings you can control via the Bose Music app on your Bluetooth device.

    4. Jaybird Vista 2 True Wireless Earbuds

    MOST DURABLE

    Not only do these earbuds’ minimal hooks help keep them locked in place, they’re seriously rugged and durable. They’re so rugged that Jaybird calls the Vista 2s “earthproof,” meaning that they can get wet and dusty and still function like normal. The buds are also impact-resistant, and come with 6mm drivers, active noise-cancelling sound and a full day’s worth of battery life using the case. Pro tip: Buy them while they’re on sale right now.

    5. JBL Endurance Peak True Wireless Sport Earbuds

    LONG-LASTING

    Another pair of earbuds that wrap over and around your ears, these JBL’s won’t budge no matter what you’re doing. They’re some of the longest-lasting, budget-friendly earbuds we’ve found. They can run for around 30 hours when used with their included charging case, with six hours of use per charge. They might not have noise-cancelling tech like other buds we’ve featured above, but they’re ideal for trail runs and outdoor use with their IPX7 waterproof rating.

    The Best Wireless Earbuds with Ear Hooks

    If you can’t find wireless earbuds that fit securely in your ears and stay there when you’re moving and shaking, well, don’t fret. Instead of constantly shoving them back into your ears, you should consider buying a pair with ear hooks.

    An ear hook, in case it wasn’t apparent, is an actual physical arm that wraps around your ear and prevents the earbud from falling out — it’s kind of like a safety net for your earbuds. Wireless earbuds with ear hooks are particularly popular among the workout crowd. If you’re a runner, cyclist or somebody who does CrossFit, the ear hooks help prevent your wireless earbuds from falling out when you’re moving around.

    Of course, these types of wireless earbuds aren’t for everybody. The ear hooks aren’t exactly discreet (or fashionable). And you might find the ear hooks to be a little awkward or uncomfortable while wearing them.

    Ear Hooks or Ear Wings?

    There are two main physical features that workout-focused wireless earbuds can have that specifically helps them stay in your ears — they can have ear hooks or ear wings.

    An ear hook is a physical hook that grips the outside of your ear, while an ear wing is a silicone attachment that grips the inside of your ear. There are quite a few popular wireless earbuds that come with ear wings, including the Jaybird Vista II ($150), Bose Sport Earbuds ($129) and the Klipsch T5 II Sport ($199).

    Ear hooks are usually made of more solid material, like plastic, while ear wings are usually made of a more flexible material like silicone. And while ear hooks are a part of the wireless earbuds, ear wings are generally swappable. Much like the silicone eartips that come with basically every pair of wireless earbuds these days, ear wings typically come in three different sizes, which allows swapping between different sizes to give the best possible fit.

    How We Tested

    Tucker Bowe

    We test a lot of different wireless earbuds, because, well, there are a lot of them out there. We test each pair of wireless earbuds for fit, sound quality, durability and other special features. The thing to note is that the most important thing is fit, especially with running and working out — because if they don’t fit in your ears, you’re not going to wear them. Ear hooks are specifically designed to help with that.

    Our Picks for Best Wireless Earbuds with Ear Hooks

    Beats Powerbeats Pro

    Beats

    • Water resistance: IPX4
    • Battery life:
    9 hours (per earbud)
    • Charging: Lightning

    The Powerbeats Pro are probably the best known and most popular wireless earbuds with ear hooks. They’re essentially sport-focused AirPods, as they’re integrated with Apple’s special h2 chip that allows them to quickly pair with an iPhone. There are a few caveats with the Powerbeats Pro, however. They’re not the best option for Android owners (as they work best with iPhone) and, because they’ve been around for several years, the Beats are due for an update.

    (Note: The Powerbeats Pro are frequently on sale and, during holidays and promotions, you can snag them for as low as $130.)

    JBL Endurance Peak 3

    Amazon

    • Water resistance: IP68
    • Battery life:
    10 hours (per earbud)
    • Charging: USB-C

    Released in early 2023, the JBL Endurance Peak 3 are one of the best all-around wireless earbuds with an ear hook design that you can buy. They have a tight, snug fit, plus they boast an IP68-rating, meaning they’re as rugged as wireless earbuds come — so they’re great for running and working out. Their companion app allows you to tweak settings, adjust the EQ and even customize an ambient sound (a.k.a. transparency) mode. And, they have a really good battery life. The kicker? They’re less than $100.

    Anker Soundcore Sport X10

    Amazon

    • Water resistance: IPX7
    • Battery life:
    8 hours (per earbud)
    • Charging:
    USB-C

    The Anker Soundcore Sport X10 are unique on this list because they’re the only wireless earbuds with have active noise-cancellation — and while it’s not nearly as effective as the noise-cancellation on higher-end wireless earbuds, it’s still pretty impressive for earbuds that are well under $100.

    Their earhooks have a similar tight-fitting design as the JBL Endurance Peak 3, which makes them pretty comfortable to work out with. The difference is that earhooks twist up and down, which helps the earbuds be more compact when in their charging case; however, it also makes placing them back in the charging case a little more of a process.

    Skullcandy Push Active

    Amazon

    • Water resistance: IP55
    • Battery life:
    8 hours (per earbud)
    • Charging:
    USB-C

    Skullcandy’s Push Active are budget-friendly wireless earbuds with flexible ear hooks — they’re made of a kind of tough silicone, which actually makes them really easy to fit around your ears. One of the coolest things about these wireless earbuds is they support Spotify Tap, so Spotify premium users can quickly start a playlist with a quick tap or a voice command (via “Hey Skullcandy”). They also have a built-in Tile integration, which could come in handy if you misplace them. The Push Active don’t have active noise-cancellation, but they do fit fairly deep in your ears, which helps with blocking out ambient noises.

    Headphones fall out of the ears what to do?

    Music is an important part of our life. It cheers us up, keeps us in good shape, grants enchanting moments during which we forget about everything in the world, enjoying the motives of our favorite tunes. Often we listen to music with headphones – in-ear, in-ear and vacuum alternatives that are small and comfortable to wear. Whether doing our regular workouts, jogging, or just taking leisurely walks in familiar places, we can find our earbuds falling out of our ears on a regular basis. What to do in such a situation, and how to get rid of annoying fallout? We will tell in our material.

    Contents

    • Headphones regularly fall out of the ears – why does this happen?
    • Wear your headphones correctly
    • Tighten your earlobe to make it harder for your headphones to fall out
    • Use a cord clip
    • Convert your headphones to ear tips
    • Use additional ear tips
    • Stop cleaning your with cotton swabs
    • Wear an ear patch
    • Choose how you wear your headphones behind your neck
    • Purchase a special silicone cap (for Apple Earpods and Airpods)
    • Use headphones with hooks
    • Wear on-ear headphones instead of in-ear headphones
    • Choose special headphones for small ears
    • Conclusion

    Headphones regularly fall out of the ears – why so happening?

    The causes of earphones falling out of the ears usually come down to the following:

    • Features of the structure of the human ear. Human ears vary in shape and size, and some ears simply don’t fit snugly. In this case, the headphones will be quite loose inside the ears and fall out regularly;
    • Headphone design and size. Headphones are made by various manufacturers who use their own headphone designs and sizes. And if some of them can fully correspond to the structure of your ears, then others will not suit you at all;
    • The distance from the ears to the jaw of a person. On the sides of the human skull are the temporomandibular joints, which act like hinges and allow you to speak, swallow, and chew. Your ears are located right behind these joints, so moving your jaw can temporarily change the shape of your ear canal. This directly depends on how far the ears are from your jaw. In some cases, jaw movements can push the headphones outward;
    • Ear cartilage deficiency syndrome. Some people lack the ear cartilage that is supposed to surround the earphones and prevent them from falling out. This is what is often referred to as ear cartilage deficiency syndrome. Lack of ear cartilage is the reason why your headphones can fall out of your ears;
    • Wax inside the ear canal. Some people have a lot of wax inside their ear canal, which is due to the use of cotton swabs to clean their ears. Often this will push excess wax towards the eardrum, increasing the oiliness of the ear canal, which will cause the earbuds to fall out frequently.

    The reasons listed above are the factors due to which the headphones regularly fall out of the ears. However, there are various ways to prevent this. Let’s see how to do it.

    Good to know: how to properly put on and insert the headphones.

    Wear your headphones correctly

    Most people wear their headphones in the normal way, with the headphones plugged right into their ears. In most cases, they do not sit very tightly there, especially if the headphones are with a cord, and the cord is connected to a phone, MP3 player and other multimedia device. Because of this, the cord puts pressure on the headphones, and sooner or later they fall out of the ears.

    An effective solution is to wrap the headphone cord around your ear and then insert the headphones inside your ears. In this case, you will have a firmly fixed headphone, and your ears will take the load of tension on the headphone cable.

    Tighten your earlobe to make it harder for the headphones to fall out

    This trick can solve the problem of the headphones falling out. Especially if your headphones have foam, rubber or silicone tips (ear pads) that should be inserted into the ear canal.

    To do this, gently pull on the earlobe with one hand to open the ear canal. Insert the earpiece and then release the earlobe so that the ear cavity is shaped and forms a tight seal around the earpiece.

    Use cord clip

    Another easy method to try if your headphones have cord clip is to attach the clip to your shirt or t-shirt.

    Using the clip on the cord to attach it to your shirt reduces the pressure of the cord on the headphones, which won’t twitch with every tug while you run.

    Convert your headphones to eartips

    If your earbuds don’t fit snugly into your ears when you wear them, there is one very easy way to fix this problem. It consists of using a pair of caps (strings) wrapped around the base of each earmold and twisted with the other part around the ear.

    This is a short term solution, but it will really help you keep jogging.

    Attach the earphones with the ties

    Use the optional eartips

    Also try the extra silicone or rubber ear tips that come with your headphones (if any). Try different sizes of eartips that best suit the size and shape of your ears.

    It’s also important to note that the foam eartips are much more secure than silicone eartips and stay in your ears better.

    Stop cleaning your ears with cotton swabs

    If you have recently experienced earphones falling out of your ears, it is likely that a lot of earwax has accumulated in your ear canal, causing them to fall out easily.

    The use of cotton swabs to remove earwax is not a recommended method. The wax will press against the eardrum, inadvertently causing a blockage inside the ear canal.

    If you think that this is the problem, it would be better to consult a doctor to clean the sulfur in a safe way.

    Wear an ear patch

    Using a warm ear patch is a practical solution that works effectively. The bandage prevents the headphones from falling out, so it is very convenient to use it, especially in winter.

    Choose your neck style

    This is probably the best solution if you’re looking to buy new headphones for everyday jogging. There are many types and styles of headphones that have been designed for running and sports, such as the style of wearing the headphones behind the neck. Some of them are designed to look like a headband that is placed on the back of the neck and the earphones are in the ears.

    Others have a special base ring worn around the neck and connected with a cable to your headphones.

    Purchase a special silicone earpiece (for Apple Earpods and Airpods)

    If you have Apple Earpods or Apple Airpods, your earphones fall out of your ears while jogging and you are wondering what to do, use the special silicone earpiece for Apple earphones . Such a nozzle costs from 10 to 15 dollars.

    These silicone tips attach to your Earpods or Airpods and hold them comfortably in your ears.

    Use headphones with hooks

    If you’re planning on buying a new pair of headphones just for playing sports or jogging, you should definitely look for those designed specifically for this purpose, namely sports headphones.

    These sports headphones come with built-in ear hooks to fit comfortably over your ears. Their hooks are wrapped around the back of the ears, and hold the device firmly while performing various exercises.

    Wear on-ear headphones instead of in-ear headphones

    If you still can’t use your running headphones, it’s time to consider using regular headphones instead of earbuds. Of course regular earbuds are heavier, but if you search the internet for them, you will see that many of them are very light. For example, you can recall the classic Walkman models.

    Using these regular running headphones is an effective solution as they are more stable and we don’t have to worry about the problems of the headphones falling out anymore.

    Choose special earmuffs for small ears

    If your earbuds continue to fall out while running, it may be due to the small ear canal in your ears. Therefore, it will be optimal to buy a pair of headphones designed for small ears.

    As a rule, women have smaller ears, so if this is your case, you should look for headphones designed for women. Or at least buy the ones that come with small ear tips.

    Conclusion

    In our material, we have analyzed the reasons why headphones regularly fall out of your ears, and what to do to solve the problem. Headphones falling out of the ears can be caused by the reasons we have listed, from a mismatch in the size of the headphones to the structure of the ears, to physiological problems in the structure of the auricle. Depending on the immediate cause, choose a method that fixes the problem of falling headphones and enjoy the great sound of your favorite earbuds.

    droplets, vacuum, applied? How to wear?

    There are several varieties of headphones that are considered the most common among users. These are plug-in or “inserts”, intra-channel or “vacuum”, overhead. They differ not only in their shape and volume of sound, but in the way they are worn, which you can learn about below.

    How do I put the earmuffs in my ears?

    When inserting earmuffs into your ears, it is important to follow certain rules that will help you achieve the best possible sound quality without damaging your hearing aid. So, insert vacuum headphones as follows:

    1. Bring the earpiece to the entrance of the ear canal and gently push it with your finger to lock it in place.
    2. With your other hand, pull back on your earlobe and push the device in until it no longer fits easily into your ear.
    3. Release the earlobe and the earphone locks into place in your ear thanks to the natural downforce that comes with restoring your ear to its normal position.

    Don’t push the earpiece too hard into your ear, or you could damage your eardrum while listening to music.

    How do I put on the ear tips?

    Choose the right rubber pad that fits over the plastic housing of the earpiece. The shrinkage strength of the device in the passage depends on it. As a rule, headphone manufacturers provide 3 different overlays with them, which differ in size. But there are times when none of them is suitable, what to do then?

    Many users recommend cutting off the overlay that fits best so that a kind of fungus forms.

    In the figure, the red dotted line indicates the reference cutting line. If you do everything right, then the pad, like an anchor, will cling to the ear and be firmly fixed in it.

    Which headphones are better to choose: with nozzles (vacuum) or without (earbuds), or maybe overhead?! The following article will help you make a choice: https://sovetexpert.ru/naushniki-vidy-obzor-luchshix-modelej.html.

    How to put a spring on the headphones?

    The weakest point of the headphones is located next to the plug itself. Even with the most careful use, the inside of the cord frays, and the headphones fail. This is due to the fact that it is near the plug that the most mobile section is located. How can you protect your device? There is one very effective and proven way – to fix the site with a spring from an automatic pen.

    To do this, proceed as follows:

    1. Take the automatic handle and remove the spring from it.
    2. Stretch the removed spring until its tail is in the free position. This must be done on both sides.
    3. Bring the end of the spring to the base of the headphones and rotate it onto the wire.

    In some cases, the headphone plug itself is thin enough that the spring can be put on the wire without additional manipulation. In this case, it can be further strengthened with electrical tape. This will allow you to get enough thickness to fix the spring.

    You can clearly see how this life hack works in the following video:

    When using headphones with a spring, you must periodically ensure that the tail does not dig into the cable winding. If this happens, you should bend the tip to the other side or wrap it with electrical tape.

    How to use Iphone headphones?

    Many owners of Iphone headphones, which are called Earpods, most often wonder why they fall out of their ears. The answer is quite obvious: unlike in-ear or vacuum headphones, the device on the iPhone is designed in such a way that each earbud must be inserted into the specified ear. On their body, the letters indicate the correct order:

    • R – earpiece for the right ear.
    • L – earmuff for the left ear.

    Therefore, if you put the earpiece for the right ear into the left ear or vice versa, it will fall out. To prevent this, you need to put the “R” earpiece in the right ear, and “L” in the left ear.

    In addition, headphones of this type differ in their functionality. The control panel, which has long come into use, which is mounted on a wire, was usually designed to accommodate a microphone and a call acceptance key. In Apple devices, it takes on a wider functionality:

    • One press of the center key – answer a call, pause or turn on the music.
    • Pressing the right or left key twice in a row – go to the next or previous track, respectively.
    • Two clicks in a row, and then holding the right or left button – turn on fast forward or rewind, respectively.

    This functionality allows you to significantly simplify the use of the player, freeing the user’s hands.

    For a complete overview of the capabilities of Apple headphones, see the following video:

    How to wear headphones outdoors?

    Consider how to wear headphones depending on their form factor. Let’s single out two large groups of devices: large (studio, overhead) and small (vacuum, in-ear) in order to determine the rules for each of them separately.

    Small headphones

    Small headphones, which include in-ears and vacuum models, fit in the ear without problems and do not take up much space, so often problems when wearing them arise only with the wire – it constantly clings to clothes, foreign objects, etc. e. How to solve this problem? Consider several ways:

    • A long cord is always inconvenient for the user, so it should be shortened. To do this, you do not need to cut anything, but simply wrap one earpiece around your neck and only then insert it into your ear. Thus, it will be possible to quickly and easily solve the problem.
    • This method is only suitable for cold seasons when you wear a jacket or other outerwear. The ever-interfering cord can be easily hidden under clothing, and then it will not cling to surrounding objects.
    • If the model of vacuum headphones allows, it is recommended to insert them into the ear canal, and throw the wire behind the ear shell. This technique will prevent the earpiece from falling out of the ear if the wire is accidentally touched or pulled.
    • Manufacturers are also concerned about users, so most headphones have special clothespins that allow you to attach the wire to clothing items.

    Long cable problem solved, but what if you have big headphones?

    Large headphones

    Many people choose over-ear or studio headphones, justifying this by saying that they transmit sound better and do not affect hearing so much. In turn, wearing such an accessory also creates a small problem for the user. Let’s sort them out.

    • Large earmuffs are especially uncomfortable when worn with a hat. But this also has a solution. For example, if the headpiece sticks up, the headphone bar can be lowered to the back of the neck. The sound will not lose volume. The headphones themselves can be easily worn over the hat.
    • If you feel uncomfortable wearing headphones with a hat, you can use the device without a hat. It will warm your ears, but the rest of your head may get cold.

    General recommendations for wearing headphones

    Having considered the features of the correct wearing of different types of headphones, we highlight the main recommendations that are relevant for any accessories: . If you do this too harshly, you can damage the device itself, as well as the ear canal.

  • For hygiene reasons, it is not recommended to share your headphones with other people. If this cannot be avoided, use replaceable gaskets and elastic bands.
  • Experts recommend picking up headphones where there are special holes on the back of the case for normal listening to the environment. Naturally, you won’t be able to completely immerse yourself in music or an audiobook, but it will provide you with a certain level of safety on the street.
  • If you still experience discomfort after listening to music through headphones, you should change the device.
  • It is recommended to change the rubber pads on the vacuum earphones periodically, because dirt and dust accumulate on them, which can adversely affect health.
    And if the model is not collapsible or dirt has accumulated in the head nozzle, then you should thoroughly clean the headphones from sulfur and dirt. How to do it right – read here.
  • The selection of headphones is a purely individual procedure. You should not rely too much on other people’s opinions, but it is better to put in different options when buying and purchase the one that turned out to be the most convenient.

    Why is the misuse of headphones dangerous?

    Having considered the rules for wearing and using headphones, it is necessary to understand what is dangerous about wearing them incorrectly, because few users ask this question:

    • Hearing loss . The human ear begins to recognize sounds already at the level of 85-90 decibels. The maximum headphone volume is 110-130 decibels. Accordingly, listening to music at maximum volume for a long time can lead to a shift in the lower limit of ear susceptibility. Thus, the person begins to hear worse.

    Do not forget about the danger that a person exposes himself to when listening to music with headphones at full volume. Particularly noteworthy are accidents that occur due to the fact that the pedestrian did not hear a warning signal or a car horn.

    • Migraines and fatigue . The localized impact of sound waves when listening to music through headphones greatly enhances internal stereo effects, which can lead to headaches, as well as increased fatigue during the day.
