Cell phones, tablets that reason mental health issues in kids

Cell phones, tablets that cause  psychological well-being problems in children as young as two years old.

Scientists warn that children as young as two are developing mental health problems due to smartphones and tablets.

Just one hour a day watching a screen may be enough to make children more likely to be anxious or depressed.

This could make them less curious, less able to finish tasks, less emotionally stable and reducing their self-control.

Although adolescents are at greater risk of harmful devices, children under 10 and the developing brains of young children are also affected.

But research shows that 'zombie' children spend almost five hours every day looking at electronic devices.

Researchers at San Diego State University and the University of Georgia say that time spent on smartphones is a serious but avoidable cause of mental health problems.

"Half of mental health problems develop in adolescence," said professors Jean Twenge and Keith Campbell. "It is necessary to identify the factors linked to mental health problems that [can be modified] in this population, since most are difficult or impossible to influence." The way children and adolescents spend their free time is [easier] to change".

Parents and teachers should reduce the amount of time children spend online or watching television while they study, socialize, eat or even play sports.

Professor Twenge said her study, one of the largest of its kind, supports the time limit set for the American Academy of Pediatrics screen: one hour per day for children two to five years old.

It also suggests that a similar limit, perhaps two hours, should apply to children and adolescents of school age, he added.

The researchers analyzed the data provided by the parents of more than 40,000 American children aged two to 17 years for a nationwide health survey in 2016. The questionnaire asked about the medical care of the youth, any emotional, developmental or developmental problems. behavior and your daily screen time.

Teenagers who spend more than seven hours a day on screens are twice as likely to have been diagnosed with anxiety or depression as those who spent an hour. The study found that the links between screen time and well-being are stronger among teens than among young children.

Professor Twenge said: "At first, I was surprised that partnerships were bigger for teenagers, but teenagers spend more time on their phones and social networks, and we know from other research that these activities are more linked to low well-being that to the observation ". Television and videos, which is most of the screen time of the youngest children. "

Even moderate four-hour use is also associated with less psychological well-being than an hour a day.

Preschoolers, or children under five, who are frequent users are twice as likely to lose control of time, and are 46 percent more likely to not be able to calm down when they are excited.

Among young people aged 14 to 17, more than four in ten (42.2%) of those who participated in the study and spent more than seven hours a day on screens did not finish the tasks.

Approximately one in eleven (9 percent) of children ages 11 to 13 who spent an hour with screens daily was not curious or interested in learning new things.

Writing in the journal Preventative Medicine Reports, the professors said they were particularly interested in the links between screen time and diagnoses of anxiety and depression in young people, which have not yet been studied in great detail.

They said: "Previous research on the associations between screen time and psychological well-being among children and adolescents have been conflicting, which has led some researchers to question the limits of screen time suggested by medical organizations."

The US National Institute of Health UU He estimates that children and adolescents usually spend an average of five to seven hours on screens during free time. The evidence is growing of the adverse effects that this has on health.

This year, the World Health Organization decided to include the gambling disorder in the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases.

The Vivo Nex works with a non-removable 4000 mAh battery. The phone comes with a 6.59-inch touch screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2316 pixels. The Vivo Nex works with an octa-core processor of 2.8 GHz and comes with 8 GB of RAM. The Vivo phone has 128 GB of internal storage. Regarding the cameras, the Vivo Nex includes a main camera of 12 megapixels (f /1.8) and a secondary camera of 5megapixels (f / 2.4) in the back and a front camera 8 megapixels for selfies.

The Vivo Nex is a Dual-SIM smartphone (GSM and GSM) that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. The connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, USB type C, 3G and 4G (with support for band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors in the phone include unique finger impression sensor, compass/magnetometer, closeness sensor, accelerometer, encompassing light sensor and spinner.

Vivo NEX brings the full screen design and fingerprint
scanning technology to a new level. It's going to be a game changer for Vivo, as it has a design almost completely without bevels and offers revolutionary new technologies with excellent sound quality for amazing selfies.

The upper and side bevels around the screen are very small and measure only 1.8 mm. It is considered to be the finest bevels that have been found on a smartphone. However, the lower bezel is 4.3 mm, which is a little thick compared to other bevels.

The front of the smartphone is a 6.59-inch OLED screen with FHD + resolution. The OLED platform is the secret behind this incredible screen design, since it allows the microchips to be mounted directly on the flexible circuit board, which saves crucial space and makes the profile of the phone as small as possible.

Fingerprint technology is the highlight feature of this device. Vivo NEX has a fingerprint scanner under the screen with the most advanced technology of the time. The company has increased the size of the scanner and now the lower half of the screen can recognize the fingerprints. No need to touch a specific and dedicated point, in fact, the bottom of the screen recognizes your fingerprint anywhere you touch. Vivo has decided to call this new technology "Scanning fingerprints on screen in half screen".

There is another very interesting feature of NEX that is your selfie camera. The selfie camera can not be seen anywhere under normal conditions, but when the selfie mode is activated, an 8-megapixel camera appears at the top of the screen. Although it takes only 0.8 seconds, it seems fascinating and creative.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus up the ante for the design of mid-range phones and budget. The delicacy in the design and the reassuring construction quality make the phone look more expensive than it really is.
 Nokia 6.1 Plus Review 
There is a glass in the back with an aluminum housing along the edges sandwiched between the glass screen in the front and the glass back. It looks rad, especially the black I used. Of course, a glass backing attracts fingerprints and smudges, so keep that in mind. The metal frame around the edges peeks around the screen at the front, adding small bevels and a small chin at the bottom. The dual cameras stacked vertically in the back protrude a little so that the phone does not rest on the surfaces. Both the camera module and the fingerprint sensor below have a chrome plating around them, which looks quite attractive. The power button and volume control have a functional design, although I would have preferred a little more of a click feeling, and both have the same chrome border.

Display
The Nokia 6.1 Plus has a full HD + 5.8-inch LCD panel with an aspect ratio of 19: 9, made possible by embracing the notch (first for Nokia phones). The screen is also covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection against scratches. It is a lovely screen, and one of the best in this price range. The colors are striking and the contrast is great. The viewing angles are also decent enough. Actually only the brightness could have been better, exacerbated by the dubious execution of the adaptive brightness. The screen of the Nokia 6.1 Plus is sharp with excellent color reproduction. In my opinion, the high screen is also almost the perfect size for most people.

Performance
Unlike the Nokia phones of the past, the Nokia 6.1 Plus packages on a competent spec sheet. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with custom Kryo 260 cores, such as the Qualcomm 8xx processors. The same chip set feeds other solid budget horsepower like the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. Internal storage is the Nokia 6.1 Plus comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB expanded with a microSD card. The device stays well in daily use. There is no wobble of any kind, and it sounds good for most of the usual tasks, although you will notice a bit of stuttering if you take it to an extreme. Honestly, the performance delta with devices like the new Mi A2 or the Redmi Note 5 Pro would not be too meaningful for most users, unless their priority is the hardcore game.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

Expected Price in Pakistan Rs. 85,500 & in USD $634 
This smartphone feels great in the hand since it has a width of 74.7 mm for a thickness of roughly (0.33 inches, 8.5 mm). ). For reference, this is based on a medium-sized hand (US M gloves), and you can try to extrapolate from here. The weight of 218 grams (7.69 oz) makes it a heavy smartphone, although shockingly it doesn't feel * that * it is substantial, maybe due to its shape and surface region. The measure of battery limit the client gets is useful for a telephone of this size. The screen-body proportion of 85.0% is additionally superb when all is said in done.

Design
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 smartphone was created to go to a full screen phone, and since then a lot of ground has been covered. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is still the best step towards this final game. Like other Mi Mix before, this phone has an aluminum rim on the side and a ceramic back. The front is tempered glass, of course, to protect it from scratches. In addition to looking very clean, the highlight of the design is the sliding mechanism that makes the screen go down a little less than 1 cm, revealing the system of selfies with double camera, with LED flash, a very rare feature that selfies can appreciate more than the layman. Fortunately, Xiaomi managed to build a sliding chassis that has the same thickness as the Galaxy S9 + (~ 0.85 mm) and, therefore, is free of compromises in terms of size. For people who do not use the front camera often, nothing will be lost, and for those who do, the sliding action will start the selfie camera automatically, making it faster than conventional phones. In general, the Xiaomi Mi Mix chassis is an excellent piece of engineering, and the special edition of Forbidden City is absolutely beautiful, in addition to having 10 GB of RAM.

Display
As the star of the series, the beautiful My Mix 3 screen had to be OLED, but interestingly, the image quality was not the main factor behind this decision. The OLED screens are also thinner, and according to the CEO of Xiaomi, that was the key to making the chassis of the phone as thin as the Galaxy S9 +. It is true that the resolution of 2340 × 1080 (403 PPI) is not as high as the 2960 × 1440 pixels seen in Galaxy phones (~ 515 PPI). However, this is a classic trade off for phones that are designed to compete on price. There are excellent reasons to want a higher PPI screen, such as seeing more details in HD photos and better defined text. However, this is not something that people complain about often, or they would be willing to pay hundreds of dollars more to get them. At a glance, the Mi Mix 3 screen is very good and easily surpasses LCD-based competitors. However, on the phone line we saw, 6 out of 8 phones use OLED screens, so you can see where this is going.

The Mi Mix 3 screen has a Samsung AMOLED panel. OLED is a completely different screen technology (than LCD) that has been widely present in smartphones. The fundamental difference between OLED and LCD screens is how light is emitted. With the LCD screen, there is a small number of white light emitters (1-2 for telephones, 2-100 for televisions) and black pixels are created by "blocking" white light with a filter. Unfortunately, the use of a filter produces a "light bleeding" and a "black color", in fact, is dark gray. With OLED, each pixel emits its own light.  As a result, the color black is really black, and other colors are easier to control without using complex filters and color control technologies like Quantum Dots and Nano Dots. You can read our full LCD vs. article OLED that delves into the details. The resolution of 2340 × 1080 would be considered high in absolute terms and, compared to the competition, it would be simple, since a pixel density of ~ 400 PPI is really common for this market .

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Camera
The Mi Mix 3 camera system is using state-of-the-art components (more on this later), and this is shown in the photo samples we have taken so far. In daylight conditions, Mi Mix 3 has no problem competing with the best camera phones, such as the Galaxy S9 +. Our casual comparison of photos side by side shows this, without a clear winner. I would have to look very closely at the small details that can be explained by small variations in measurement or white balance. In any case, the S9 + has a slight tendency to overexpose to make the photo brighter, even in daylight, while the Mi Mix 3 will be a bit more conservative and avoid overexposure. The difference is small, but if you had to find one, it would be that.

Low light photography
In low light conditions, the Mi Mix 3 also works very well, competing very well with the Galaxy S9 +. Here again, there are differences in the philosophy that Samsung prefers the elimination of noise at the expense of sharpness, while Xiaomi is prioritizing sharpness, even if that means having a slightly louder image. In this round, I would give the Galaxy S9 + a small gain, since it keeps the colors better (if you know how the scene really looks), which is one of the most difficult things to do in low light conditions. The Sony XPERIA XZ2 and the Pixel 3 are other phones that do it well. In general, the Mi Mix 3 performs almost as well as the S9 + in low light conditions, despite a huge difference in price. Night mode: if you do not care more about image processing, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a dedicated Night mode, or an ultra-long exposure mode, during which it will take several dozen photos with different exposures, and merge them into a single image

The result is a reinforced HDR style photo that can be seen supernaturally bright (as at night it becomes day). Some people simply love it; Others do not, it's up to you. Because it is on the verge of being a filter, we do not review in the same way as traditional low-light photography, but you must take it into account. This night mode competes directly with Huawei's P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro night mode, which introduced this to the world in March. Eventually, we believe that other OEMs will include a similar night mode, since it is a very convincing feature.

Front camera
In Asia, selfies can be a big business, so you often find self-powered cameras more powerful than the flagship phones in the US. UU., Including recent Galaxy S and iPhone phonesIn any case, Google Pixel is endeavoring to change that a bit. We found that the selfie camera is very good and we will compare it with the main phones when the final unit is available. The 24 megapixel Selfie camera is powered by the Sony IMX576 Exmor RS sensor, which is capable of grouping pixels to quadruple the pixel surface of the sensor during night shots, going from 0.9μm / 24MP to 1.8μm / 6MP). Grouping pixels is a way to reduce noise in a low light situation and at the same time have higher details in bright light conditions. The camera includes a selfie LED flash, an accessory that is often sacrificed because there is very little space in a normal phone.On account of the sliding instrument, Mi Mix 3 can offer this alternative to its clients.

In the Mi Mix 3, the opening of the main rear camera of f / 1.8 is good, and the sensor size of almost 24 mm2 would be considered large (for a smartphone). The 12 megapixel resolution of Sony's IMX363 sensor could be a useful metric for detail and sharpness on a sunny day. Photographs of landscapes with a higher megapixel count could lead to finer details. The differences between 12 MP, 16 MP and 21 MP in small details can be quite remarkable, if they are printed or seen on a large screen and / or high PPI. In situations of dark scenes, the high megapixel count (> 12) has little influence. In addition, the physical size of each pixel of the sensor is critical. The 1.4μm pixel size of this sensor is very good, and is often seen on high-end phones, but there are even larger pixels!

Xiaomi has included a video recording capacity of 960 FPS in the Mi Mix 3. It works quite well, but after watching the videos, I detected the interpolation of frames. After checking, Xiaomi has confirmed that the 960 FPS is obtained from the interpolation of frames, a technique used by Huawei in his P20 Pro phone as well. Frame interpolation will not look as good as a real 960 FPS capture because 75% of the frames are generated with a linear motion. Subtleties can likewise be lost or obscured on the off chance that they are little enough. Be that as it may, as a rule, the outcome is better than average and worth sharing. This video demonstrates the contrast between obvious 960FPS and inserted 960FPS: HDTVs use the same type of techniques to go from 60 to 240 HZ, so it is a proven technology. In this case, you are probably converting a 240/480 FPS video into 960FPS (interpolated). As for hardware, the Sony IMX363 of the main camera does not have the ability to record at 960 FPS to begin with, so everything makes sense.

The Mi Mix 3 from Xiaomi has a secondary camera module with 2X optical zoom that also serves as a camera depth sensor for Bokeh. The 2X zoom helps a bit with the quality of the image, and there is support for electronic image stabilization (EIS) when videos are recorded in this mode. The Huawei P20 Pro and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro have cameras with an even higher zoom with 3X optical zoom. They usually work better during the day, since they use relatively small sensors. At night, the main camera (without zoom) can be an alternative.

Battery 
The capacity of Mi Mix 3's battery is 3200 mAh, which is very good in general, but rather standard in its own category. It can be charged with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ (18W) standard, but the included charger is Quick Charge 3.0 (18W). Battery life is one of features of a smartphone. A key indicator is, of course, the capacity of the battery, especially within the same ecosystem (Android, iOS or other). The battery life can be affected by many factors, but the main ones are the processor, SoC, the screen and the wireless radios (LTE broadband, WiFi, the location of cell towers and more). It is impossible to determine with precision through synthetic tests how much energy drains SUS induced their unique needs. However, two things are certainly always good:

In general, it is not possible to predict the actual duration of the battery by running synthetic tests. Things like the brightness of the screen, the use of the radio (LTE / WiFi) and the distance to the access points will change too much. In addition, the number of applications on board and their use can not be estimated. The capacity of the battery is the most important indicator of useful life for YOUR use. Wireless charging can be very nice, and Mi Mix 3 comes with an integrated wireless charging option (wireless charger in the box). Since this product has a very large screen, keep in mind that larger screens tend to require more energy due to the most important surface area to illuminate. It depends on the brightness, but there is the possibility of more energy, so a higher capacity of the battery is preferable. This phone has a relatively common screen resolution. Although this may be enough from the point of view of the quality of the screen, having fewer pixels to manage is a little better for the life of the battery.

System performance
This central phone processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (8 Cores, 2.8 GHz) that has access to 6, 8 or 10 GB of memory (RAM) depending on the model you choose. Note that the 10 GB RAM is just accessible in the extraordinary release . If you have been buying, you will notice that virtually all high-end Android phones, except those of Huawei, use that particular chip set. The amount of RAM is essential for heavy users, or to have many applications / services on the device. When the memory is tight, the phone may be less responsive if the system has to read / write from slower Flash storage. This has been one of the differentiates between low and high phone levels, but this line is now blurry. We are still waiting for the retail unit to run the final benchmarks, but almost all Snapdragon 845 phones land in a well-defined performance area, and we expect it to perform similarly. That is precisely what our current numbers show. Benchmarks alone should NOT make a purchase decision on the smartphone. For more information, read our Are benchmarks important? Article.

Wireless broadband performance
The Mi Mix 3 has an LTE CAT12 modem (600 Mbps). This level of performance is quite good in absolute terms, but timid of what the other Snapdragon 845 phones can do: CAT18 / 1200 Mbps. Huawei has a 1400 Mbps modem that has quite recently been acquainted with the market. That said, do not panic, operators have not always implemented full support for the latest speeds. Maybe check with your operator to see if this is a big problem for you, or not. Xiaomi has talked about a 5G version of this phone, but it will not be shown before 2019, so we will have to update this article when we know more about the type of 5G technologies that Xiaomi intends to integrate. The performance of wireless networks (3G / 4G) is often considered a maximum download / upload speed, but what counts is the average speed. Nowadays, 4G/LTE is the fundamental system of intrigue, however 5G is comingThe higher the theoretical performance of LTE and the better the average real experience. In addition, wireless providers have better and more efficient LTE networks to lower their own costs.

It is impossible to check a Xiaomi phone without measuring the value proposition it brings. That's the whole concept of Xiaomi: provide high quality hardware at unbeatable prices and then make money on web services. We have already established that for traditional photography with bright light and low light, the Mi Mix 3 performs there along with the best mobile cameras, for about half the cost of the well-known high-end phones. When it comes to processor performance, something similar is happening, and it can be clearly seen that Xiaomi brings great value by observing almost every aspect of the product. The Mi Mix 3 has a value 75% better than that of the best-known high-end phones, and even manages to surpass OnePlus, which is itself an optimized value brand. For customers interested in performance, Xiaomi has even introduced the Pocofone brand, and the new Pocofone F1 crushes everyone in this value-for-processor contest. We are working on that revision at this time.

Conclusion
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is distinguished by its full-screen design, which targets a particular market of users who love to have all the screen they can get today. Because the design decisions behind this product are bold and, therefore, risky, the phone itself could be polarized. Some people will love it, while others may laugh at the idea of ​​the slider. In the end, it only matters how many people love him, and so far, the answer is apparently excellent. Perhaps the last thing to think about is the MIUI user interface, which is Xiaomi's layer on Android. Like any other interface, it may take a few days to get used to it and, depending on your habits, you may like it (or not), but we recommend that you watch a video or two to get a better idea.
