Sergi Roberto: “Since the victory it is easier to work”

first_imgSergi Roberto spoke as soon as the match ended at Movistar. -Have they endured more than Betis?-It was a very physical match. They have raised a daring match. It was almost a man to man. In the second part there were more spaces. Even more with expulsions. We have finished dead but at least we get all three points. How much did they need this win?We came from losing in Bilbao, but I think that was unfair. But we had to stay the same. It was important to meet again away from home and we leave happy because this course is costing us a lot.How did you see the arbitration?Well, there have been alternatives in the game, it has been nice for the spectator We leave happy with the three points.Are you beginning to understand Setién better?-Now we have more games, more weeks of training. At the beginning you need an adaptation time, but since the victory it is easier to work. This is the line to follow because they have hardly had opportunities in the second part.last_img read more

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A (2016) brings Note 7’s S Pen to tablets

first_imgSamsung has launched an all-new upgraded version of its recently launched Galaxy Tab A (2016) that brings the Note 7’s trademark S Pen stylus to tablets. To recall, the original Galaxy Tab A (2016) was launched in May earlier this year.The new Galaxy Tab A (2016) is simply the original with a stylus, which means the former also brings along key software elements that the S Pen brings (and supports) to the table, already on the Note 7. The tablet is however exclusive to South Korea for now.Speaking of specifications, the Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen comes with a 10.1-inch display with a 1920×1200 pixel resolution. It is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable via microSD card slot. The tablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and supports 4G LTE connectivity. The device is backed by a 7,300mAh battery which is claimed to offer up to 14 hours of battery life on single charge.The Tab A (2016) sports an 8-megapixel camera on the rear and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.The Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen has been priced at 489,000 won ($440) in South Korea which roughly translates to Rs 29,227.Samsung is among the select few top-tier companies to openly embrace tablets, even though their market keeps getting smaller and smaller each day. Samsung is aware of the fact. The company, while launching the Note 7 in India, had acknowledged it. It has postponed the launch of Galaxy TabPro S here to an indefinite period of time.advertisementThe Tab S2 has however done pretty well in India, according to Samsung, but still not well enough to call it a success story.
