The LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will most likely be pitted against each other quite often throughout the remainder of 2017 and for good reason. Aside from being released within the same time frame, they’re both big, powerful productivity and multimedia powerhouses, and if you’re considering purchasing an LG V30, odds are the Note 8 isn’t too far off your radar. But what is it about the LG V30 that would make you prefer it over Samsung’s ever so popular Galaxy Note. What are the benefits?
Sony may have released the Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium earlier this year, but that’s not stopping the company from churning out even more high-end devices. Today at IFA 2017, Sony announced two new flagship devices, the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. As the names may suggest, we’ve got the same flagship in two sizes this time around. Can they challenge the rest and become the best? Or is it a case of the same-old from Sony, as it aims to continue its resurgence from its previous struggles?
Samsung just unveiled its latest 2017 flagship, and one of the first things people want to know about is how it compares to its predecessor. Things are unfortunately not as simple in the case of the Galaxy Note 8, as its true predecessor, the Galaxy Note 7, was recalled last year after only a short time on the market. The good thing is that we do have an identical point of reference with the recently released Galaxy Note Fan Edition, which is essentially a Note 7 redux with a smaller battery.
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".
