5 Different Methods To Stream Content To Your TV

You can use USB devices and gaming consoles. There are plenty of solutions available in 2019 and here we are going to look into some of the best ones that you should consider. Here are the best streaming devices that you can get in 2019.

1. Roku Streaming Stick+ (Best Overall)

Roku Stick is a great option to consider if you are interested in streaming content to your TV. With this option, you have access to over 7000 channels which is a lot of content. The price of the device is fairly inexpensive and it is small and compact as well. The device comes with a wireless amplifier which gives you an even stronger signal and you can control it with Alexa as well. To top it all off, there is a vast library of apps available for Roku Stick. You can check this list of top free movie apps for further information.

2. Google Chromecast (Best Value)

The Google Chromecast is an inexpensive device that lets you stream content to your TV. It is portable and takes up little space. The new model performs slightly better than the older versions. Google claims that the device is up to 15% faster than the older model.

You can take advantage of the Chromecast app that is very well designed. While this is a great device for streaming 1080p content, if you are interested in 4K content then you should check out the Google Chromecast Ultra instead of this version. I’ve tried streaming ShowBox APK, Netflix and Hulu through my partner’s Pixel 3, and it worked flawlessly. Chromecast is a bang for the buck.

3. Nvidia Shield (Best Android TV Player)

The Nvidia Shield is an impressive combination of Android TV player and console. You can stream content on the device and do some gaming as well. Not only can you play the high-end Android games but you can also stream games from your PC to the Nvidia Shield as well.

If you have a gaming PC and would like to stream games to your TV as well then this is an option that is worth looking into. The device supports 4K HDR  and you can play your own content using a USB. The Nvidia Shield is a very flexible device that can be used for different purposes and in different ways.

4. Apple TV 4K (Best For Apple Users)

The Apple TV 4K delivers everything that the previous model offered but now offers 4K support as well. Not only can you watch iTunes movies and TV shows but you can also stream content, play games and stream content from other Apple devices using AirPlay.

The Siri-enabled remote is impressive and so is the voice recognition software. If you already have Apple devices in your home then this is a great streaming device for you.

5. Xbox One S (Best Console For Streaming)

The Xbox One S is a great console for streaming. You can play games at 1080p but when it comes to streaming Netflix and other content you can go all the way up to 4K resolution. While the price is higher than other streaming devices on this list, keep in mind that the console allows you to play all the latest games as well. The console can also be used to play 4K Blu-ray movies. All things considered, the Xbox One S is one of the best streaming devices to consider in 2019.

How To Dim iPhone’s Brightness Darker Than The Lowest Brightness Setting

I am an iPhone user, and I use my iPhone especially at night to read blogs and books always. However, the iPhone’s lowest brightness setting isn’t enough. I want it to be even dimmer, can I? I am sure you can relate too. If you are looking out a solution, then the answer is yes. You can go even darker as Apple provides you the perfect nighttime settings. To know more stay tuned!

If you are like me who spend time on the phone before going to bed then you know if lights are off the brightness still feel too loud. To adjust the display brightness to the lowest so that it is soothing for eyes is what we look for.

Thankfully, the iPhone has a hidden way to get your phone super dim. I am sure you are waiting to know the trick. So, without much ado let’s jump to the main component.

Make your iPhone darker than lowest brighter settings

There are two techniques to make the iPhone screen darker. Either “Reduce White Point” to lower the intensity of colors or Adjust “Zoom” for further display darkens.

Turning on Reduce White Point:

  • Open the Settings App
  • Click General> Accessibility
  • Open Vision and tap Display Accommodations
  • Slide the Reduce White Point switch to the left.
  • A new slider will appear below Reduce White Point when it is green
  • Drag slider and adjust the White Point. The higher the percentage of the slider the darker your screen will be.

Making iPhone Screen Darker Using Zoom Tool:

Another way is to adjust faint light by using the Zoom function. For this follow the mentioned steps:

  • Go to the Settings App.
  • Now go to General> Accessibility > Zoom
  • For this toggle your finger three times on the configuration overlay. Choose a filter and then low light from the options. Finally, drag Zoom slider to the left.
  • You are one step away from the modal, adjust the Zoom Region to Full-Screen Zoom
  • Click on the Zoom Filter
  • Select the Low Light
  • Your screen will be dimmer instantly. From here you can go to the Control center for minor settings.

If you are thinking that by muting your screen battery will be saved then this feature is just a filter and has no relevance with power saving. For those looking for a power saving mode, this is disappointing though.

Setup a shortcut for Ultra Low Brightness:

Well, this was about how to get your iPhone screen darker. To help you further we have got a shortcut mode to save your time and energy (at least physically). This ultra-saving mode can anytime by cinch by enabling Apple’s Accessibility Shortcut.

  • Open the Settings Tool
  • Go to General> Accessibility> Accessibility Shortcut
  • Choose Zoom option (If not picked earlier). And you’re done

Now, whenever you wish to activate or deactivate the Zoom low Light Brightness setting. All you need to do is just press Home button thrice, and a Zoom button popup will show on your screen. That’s all folks!
