Do we have a good one for you today – a special comparison of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Google Pixel XL, the LG G6, and the new HTC U11. With the official announcement of the HTC U11, we wanted to see just how the new HTC flagship held up to its current mainstream competition. The Google Pixel XL model came out in October 2016 and is the oldest of the group, but it is Google’s current flagship until a new model arrives on the scene this fall.
The HTC U11 is finally official and HTC Canada is setting the price at $899 CAD ($660 USD) on their website with estimated availability sometime in June. The HTC U11 will be sold unlocked directly through HTC’s website and support Rogers, Bell, Videotron, MTS, SaskTel, and Eastlink. It looks like the HTC U11 will not be sold directly through wireless carriers in the country, though that has yet to be confirmed.
Do we have a good one for you today – the new Samsung Galaxy S8 goes up against the Honor Note 8. We do realize that the Galaxy S8 is a high-end flagship device going up against a larger, very phablet-sized device, but the Honor Note 8 does have a QHD display and a high-end Kirin processor. Samsung completely redesigned the Galaxy S8 series – they still kept its all-glass body, but added an 18:9 aspect ratio, added an Infinity Display, and finished it off with thin bezels top and bottom.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
