Vodafone switches on 5G network in seven cities
Vodafone customers who have purchased a 5G contract can now experience speeds up to 100x faster than 4G in seven UK cities: London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Cardiff and Glasgow.
Twelve additional towns and cities will benefit from Vodafone 5G later this year: Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newport, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton.
Vodafone 5G customers can even enjoy 5G roaming in parts of Germany, Italy and Spain.
This makes Vodafone the second mobile network to launch 5G, after rivals EE switched on the UK’s first 5G network in May. O2 plans to launch its own 5G service later in the year.
Google wants to make Night Sight a default feature
Google is marketing its new Pixel 3 phone heavily based on the Night Sight feature, which automatically colour-corrects shots taken at night to enhance ambient colours.
But some users have found the feature frustrating, with the Night Sight option buried in a list of other camera settings.
According to a leaked Android Q beta build, Google looks set to respond by making Night Sight a default setting in the Camera app. Users can now swipe from the camera screen to access Night Sight, similar to how the Portrait and Video modes are accessed.
Google also seems to be experimenting with making Panorama, Photo Sphere and other features easier to access. Keep your eyes peeled!
