We have another Google Pixel 2 XL matchup as it takes on the Sony Xperia XZ1. Here we have two smartphones that have a loyal following – many will buy no other brand – and that can be a good thing or simply a stubborn misconception. The two devices could not be further apart in the looks department – the Pixel 2 XL is more modern with its slim bezels and 18:9 display ratio, while the Xperia XZ1 looks like a device from 2015 with its rectangle design and large bezels.
Do we have an interesting comparison for you today – the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6. Here we have two flagship devices with the Galaxy Note 8 with S-Pen – arguably the best smartphone on the market – and the LG G6, which is certainly not on par with the Note 8, but cheap enough, and feature laden enough for most users. Is the Note 8 worth the extra money? Does the LG G6 have enough power to satisfy the average user?
We have a great matchup for you today – the OnePlus 5 takes on the Moto Z2 Force. Both devices are very 2015-looking with their large bezels, front-facing fingerprint sensors, and their 16:9 aspect ratios. Both are niche devices with strong followings for both the OnePlus and Moto brands. The OnePlus 5 came out in June and the Moto Z2 Force arrived in August – both running Android 7.1.1 Nougat and still waiting for their Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
