Eskute Polluno Pro Review: Mid

Pros

Mid-drive motor with torque sensor

Comfortable to ride

Decent display

Cons

Heavy

May be too large for shorter riders

No gear indicator

Not available in the US

Our Verdict

The Eskute Polluno Pro is a decent e-bike for commuting and with its torque sensor, comfortable, noiseless ride and step-through design it’s great for everyday use. It is heavy, though, and shorter riders may find it too big.

As cycle-to-work initiatives continue to grow in availability and popularity, there has been a corresponding rise in the number of e-bikes aimed solely at commuters. And if the hypothetical Joe/Jane Bloggs needs one to ride to the office, dressed to impress in the boardroom, there are a few important design considerations.

The bike must be comfortable, it must fit a variety of shapes and sizes, it should be safe and easy to manoeuvre in traffic and most importantly, it must look at least somewhat classy. This, of course, is a difficult set of priorities to balance at any budget, and so the likes of the Eskute Polluno Pro have their work cut out.

Targeted at those who want to ditch the car and get to work in style without breaking the bank, the Polluno Pro emphasises a ‘noiseless’ design, a torque sensor and a long range of up to 80 miles as its main selling points.

But with some serious competition at this price, does it do enough to earn our recommendation? Read on for our full review.

Features & design

Step-through design

Mid-drive Bafang motor

The first thing you see is the Polluno Pro’s step-through frame design, which makes it easier to mount than a ‘normal’ bike, and that’s something you’ll appreciate if you’re wearing your work clothes.

The recommended height range is 160-200cm, so shorter riders under about 5ft3 (162cm) could find it difficult or impossible to ride, and there is no option of a smaller frame. That’s the first compromise, them.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The second thing you notice is the large motor assembly between the pedals. That’s because this is mid-drive bike: the motor isn’t in the rear wheel hub as it is with most e-bikes.

Eskute has opted for the M200 system from Bafang, a well-respected manufacturer in the e-bike world.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The massive battery contributes to the high overall weight of the bike, which at 27.5kg is difficult to lug it up a flight of stairs. This could be an issue for those who live in a flat and can’t store the bike outdoors.

Fortunately, the battery can be removed and/or locked in place using the provided keys, and a full charge took around 5 hours on average.

We found in general use that the Polluno Pro was comfortable to ride. The saddle had enough padding to make even extended rides a breeze, while the front suspension did a good job of absorbing lumps and bumps on the road, working particularly well on cobbles.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The disc brakes, too, proved to be tight and responsive, even at higher speeds.

There’s a control panel mounted on the left handlebar, with a power button, buttons for power assist levels and an on/off button for the headlights. Though there isn’t any way to differentiate between the buttons by touch alone, the layout lent itself to quick, easy changes on the fly.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The display is separate, in the middle of the handlebars. It displays only trip distance, remaining power and the current speed. There’s no app or Bluetooth, which may be a good thing depending upon your preference.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The Polluno Pro has nine-speed gears, which were smooth in operation and welcome when tackling steep hills in particular. But we would have liked an indicator to show which gear you’re in.

Performance

While many electric bikes ‘whine’ when the motor is working hard, the Polluno Pro promises not to. And in general this proved to be true. Where you might not hear the whine of many rival bikes over traffic, you’ll be hard pressed to hear the Polluno Pro even when there are no cars at all.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The motor does emit a noise, but it is so minimal as to be totally insignificant.

Whether this is a real benefit in everyday use is really down to where you ride and how much you care about it. I certainly enjoyed the quiet.

More important is the use of a torque sensor in that mid-drive motor assembly. In many budget e-bikes a cadence sensor is used, but a torque sensor means that the motor will try to match the pressure used when pedalling to apply power, making for a much smoother ride in general.

The benefits of this setup are clear out on the road, in traffic in particular. Where cadence sensors can cause jerky movements, the Polluno Pro leaves the rider feeling completely in control, a big win for a bike intended to be used on the commute.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

Five power settings are offered, and thanks to the 65Nm of torque on offer – considerably more than you get with most e-bikes at this sort of price – there’s plenty of assistance for getting up hills.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

In general use, I found that range was around half, mixing in some hill riding and some more difficult terrain. If you commute to work every day, this is a bike which will need charged at least twice per week, depending heavily on the length of said commute.

However, this isn’t bad at all, and the Polluno Pro has better range than quite a lot of rivals.

Price & Availability

Eskute is a direct-to-consumer company, so if you’re tempted by the Polluno Pro, head straight to its website where prices start at £1899. You get a two-year warranty as standard.

There’s also a Polluno – without the Pro – which is almost identical, but doesn’t have the mid-drive motor and uses a rear-wheel hub motor and cadence sensor instead. This is £1299, so is quite a bit cheaper and shows how much of a premium you pay for the Bafang M200.

Unfortunately, Eskute doesn’t yet sell electric bikes in the US.

Naturally, there are several alternatives you might want to consider. One is Eleglide’s T1 Step-Thru which offers the same frame design, but at a significantly lower price, albeit without the upmarket (and powerful) Bafang mid-drive motor.

At £1595 the MiRider One might appeal for a different kind of commute. Though it has a shorter range (45 miles) it is lighter and as a consequence will be easier to take on public transport if necessary, not least because it folds up.

For the same price – £1595 – the Raleigh Array offers more traditional looks, but also lacks the finesse of the mid-drive motor.

And Eskute has other models you might like, too, including the Netuno.

See more in our roundup of the best electric bikes.

Verdict

There’s no shortage of e-bikes designed for commuting. To be successful requires a certain blend of features and although the Eskute Polluno Pro might not have all of these, it does enough to deserve attention.

With a comfortable ride, a sophisticated torque sensor and mostly silent operation, it will be a reliable workhorse for anyone looking to get to the office and back without fuss.

But it is exceptionally heavy and the large frame doesn’t cater for shorter riders. If neither of these things bother you, and you can afford the price, the Polluno Pro is a great choice.

In this context, this will mean a bike that performs well and with no individual component that feels like a compromise.

Authentication with FACEIO App

Source: cottonbro studio

FACEIO is a facial authentication system that can be implemented on a website using a webcam through JavaScript (Just like Disqus or Google tag) to help the users easily authenticate with the help of face recognition, unlike other traditional ways of authentication that involve passwords, emails, etc.

Simply put, it is easy to add passwordless authentication to your device. It is a straightforward widget with a luxurious UI to provide a facial recognition experience to the users. This widget is powered by the chúng tôi JavaScript library, which shows the following characteristics: i.e., it can be integrated within five minutes and is flexible enough to support highly personalized configurations. Once you are familiar with this system and have successfully implemented it on your websites, it will help you to enroll in upcoming years, feel convenience in using your favorite browser, and, yes, a definite thanks to this technology of passwordless authentication opment.

History of Facial Recognition

Source: Thalesgroup

The technology behind face recognition is older than 50 years. The first semi-automatic approach for facial recognition characteristics in photos or pictures, like eyes, ears, nose, and mouth, was developed in the 1960s. Initially, the aim was to analyze if a computer could use a database of 10 images of different people to identify new photos of each person correctly. Goldstein and Harbor using 21 subjective characteristics, including hair, lips, cheeks, and color automation developed the recognition in the 1970s. Although this was a breakthrough in the tech world, the location was still calculated manually. The traditional linear algebraic techniques for face recognition were applied in 1980 by Kirby and Sirovich. Applications of facial recognition technology are growing exponentially, and the technology itself is evolving at a swift pace. When used correctly, facial recognition technology can dramatically improve the quality of our lives and our interactions with the world around us.

Working of FACEIO App

Source: Freepik

FACEIO requires a front camera or webcam for its verification process. For face recognition, it does not need IR blast sensors. Regardless of all the framesets, the websites exhibit 100% efficiency.

Face recognition requires two types of comparisons:

Verification:In this process, the user provides information to the system, and then the system verifies the user’s information before allowing the user access. If the user’s information is inaccurate, the system gives him three opportunities to prove his identity before sending an email to the actual user.

Identification:It’s a system that compares the user’s input to the data stored in its database; if a match is found, the user’s identification is complete; otherwise, the user is given three chances to try again before being locked out permanently or being notified through email that an unauthorized third party has tried to breach the user’s privacy.

Four Stages of Authentication Method

Four stages are involved in the recognition and identification process. They are as follows:

Capture:The system captures a person’s physical or behavioral characteristics while enrolling and the identifying process. These details are saved in the system’s database and can be used in further recognition techniques.

Extraction:The template is produced by extracting particular data like physiological or behavioral features, including eye distance, forehead-to-chin distance, nasopharyngeal distance, depth of eye sockets, and shape of cheekbones, lips, ears, and chin.

Comparison:After this, a new sample is compared with a template, and using the comparison’s findings, the system automatically runs machine learning to strengthen the authentication mechanism.

Match / No match:When the system receives samples, it checks them against the information in its database to see if the characteristics match or do not match the sample provided. When the results are in, the next steps are taken accordingly.

Implementation of FACEIO App

The implementation of FACEIO involves five main stages. They are discussed as under:

Image Acquisition: Any static camera that provides a good quality image and resolution may capture the faces using face scan technology. The quality of the enrolled datasets defines the facial characteristics employed in the recognition process. Identification of enrolled pictures is crucial for the verification process.

Image Processing: The photographs are converted to black and white so that the grayscale properties may be analyzed. The resulting image is a round representation of the face. Once the face has been identified, it is localized using a normalization approach and compared to the sample from the template.

Distinctive Characteristic Location: All existing face recognition systems attempt to mimic human recognition by comparing and matching external facial characteristics. Facial-scan systems often focus on the areas close to the eyes, the corners of the mouth, the profile of the nose, and the relative positions of the eyes, nose, and mouth. Changes in a person’s outward look, including a new hairstyle, makeup, or glasses, can mislead facial-scanning algorithms and make accurate identification difficult or impossible.

Template Creation: Enrollment templates are commonly created using various processed facial photographs. Some manufacturers can even provide templates that are fewer than 100 bytes in size, while others may produce templates that are over 3K in size. In physiological biometrics, the 3K template is the most comprehensive option. Usually, bigger templates are linked to behavioral biometrics.

Template Matching:A comparison is made between Match and Enrollment templates. To provide a user with 10–20 match attempts in 1–2 seconds while performing 1:1 verification in a facial-scan system, many photographs are taken and scored against the database. The results of facial-scan identification include several probable matches since a facial scan is less successful than a finger or iris-scan at identifying a single person from a big database.

For most of the users, chúng tôi i is a breeze.

Step 01

Importing chúng tôi to your site

Use the following code snippet in your body tag to connect to the FACEIO CDN:

const faceio = new faceIO(“app-public-id”);

Step 02

Instantiating a new FACEIO object

Use the following snippet to instantiate a new face object on your website and replace the parameter “app-public-id” with your public ID found in the FACEIO console.

/* Simply provide the Public ID for your application when launching chúng tôi */ const faceio = new faceIO(“app-public-id”);

Step 03

Invoking the FACEIO widget

You can use the enroll() method to enroll unpracticed users on your website, and the authenticate() method can authenticate existing users through facial recognition.

Authenticate User

const faceio = new faceIO(“app-public-id”); function enrollNewUser(){ } function authenticateUser(){ } function handleError(errCode){ }

Enroll New User

Now Implement the enroll()from Client-Side JavaScript

const faceio = new faceIO(“app-public-id”); function enrollNewUser(){ faceio.enroll({ “locale”: “auto”, “payload”: { “whoami”: 123456, “email”: “[email protected]” } alert( `User Successfully Enrolled! Details: Distinct Facial ID: ${userInfo.facialId} Enrollment Date: ${userInfo.timestamp} Gender: ${userInfo.details.gender} Age Approximation: ${userInfo.details.age}` ); console.log(userInfo); handleError(errCode); }) Basic Steps for Application

Step 01

You’ll first need to register on the FACEIO dashboard. Select the NEW FACEIO APP after logging in, see Figure #1 below.

Step 02

Complete the steps of the FACIO Application Wizard and provide the necessary information. However, we may deselect this option if we don’t want the user to re-enter the PIN after successful recognition.

Figure #2 shows that the user may choose from various solutions depending on their specific needs.

Step 03

Get a public ID in the format shown in Figure 3. Nevertheless, this is arguably the most important part of the application.

Step 04

To begin using chúng tôi for face authentication on your site, you must first import the library, provide it with your application’s Public ID, and then run your first authentication operation.

If you haven’t already done so, walking the freedom trail is a must. It’s a great way to connect with the history of the city, and on a nice day, it’s a refreshing tour through the best parts of Boston. 

5. Explore the North End

Ever been to the North End? Take the opportunity this Monday to check it out. It has historic sites, cobbled streets, and amazing food. Not to mention some amazing local businesses would love the support during the pandemic.  

6. Visit Newbury Street

As the weather gets warmer, Newbury Street gets nicer. This street is filled with great food and fancy shops. But, you don’t need to buy anything to have a good time. With Copley Square and the Prudential Center a stone’s throw away, there’s always something to do in the area. 

7. Get takeout with friends

If you want to spend the holiday with your friends, then grab some takeout from your favorite restaurant in the area. Restaurants always appreciate the support. Plus you and your friends can relax, have fun and chow down on the day off. 

8. Attend a Virtual Event

While most in-person events have been canceled this Patriots’ Day, there are still virtual activities you can do to get in the spirit of the holiday. The Old North Church will live stream its annual lantern lighting on April 18th. Some museums like the Concord Museum have digital exhibitions celebrating those who fought in the revolution.  

9. Take a Bike Ride Around the City

With the weather getting nicer, a bike ride around the city could help clear the mind. Take a ride around your favorite spots in Boston. You can maybe even visit a park or the esplanade to really reconnect with nature. Either way, it’s a fun way to get out of the house. 

10. Visit the Seaport District

There’s something soothing about looking out across the harbor. If you’re looking for a spot to relax for a bit, this is the place. Plus, there’s some amazing seafood to try while you’re there! 

Enjoy your day off, Terriers! Happy Patriots’ Day!

How To Digitise Old Paper Photos With Google’S New Photoscan App.

First came Google Photos, which allows you store all the photos from your phone or tablet safely on the cloud. Gaving you access anywhere, any time, regardless of your device. Now comes Photoscan an app specifically designed to bring photos from the past, back to life and into the digital world.

How to Shoot Camera .RAW on Android Smartphones and Tablets.

There are countless options available for digitizing your old photos, some services require you to bring your old paper copies or negatives to a business and have them turned into digital files there. The quality of a service like this is usually very good, however, it can be quite expensive. You can also purchase dedicated, flatbed photo scanners, which will scan your images and convert them into digital files. Now, however, Google is offering its new Photoscan app to make the conversion from paper to digital easy and completely free.

Using Google Photoscan to Digitize Old Paper Photo Collections.

The first thing you have to do is download the new app from either the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store.

After you have finished chasing the circles, the app will load for a moment before merging the final image together. When the image is finished, you can access it via the circle in the bottom right-hand corner. Here you can also save the files from the app to your phone’s internal memory or ship them off to Google Photos cloud storage.  

If you are not happy with the image it has captured, before saving you can make some small adjustments. You have the option to Rotate and Crop the image, any other adjustments you will need to make from another app, such as Google Photos or using software on your computer.

With All the Greatest Intentions Sometimes Things Just Don’t Work as Well as They Should.

The resulting quality is really very variable using this app, some pictures come out fantastic and some you just have to discard. The biggest issue is the quality of your camera, its ability to focus and environmental factors such as glare, lighting, and shadows. Sometimes you will also get weird distortions, doubled up body parts and stitching errors. Similar to the ones you would find when creating a panorama with similar apps (Double check Kevin doesn’t have two noses before you upload the picture)

Until this app has a little more fine-tuning, it’s just as good to simply take a photo of the photo in question and crop it to size. For now though the app is more of a party trick than for archiving valuable photographs, given time though Google will undoubtedly turn it into the product it should be. Below is a comparison between Taking a photo of a photo and using Googles Photoscan app. (Taken on an older HTC_One_M8)

Vivo Z1 Pro Review: The Best Looking Mid

About this review: I wrote the vivo Z1 Pro review after spending over a week with it as my primary phone. The review unit was supplied by vivo India and was running Android Pie with Funtouch OS onboard. The software version at the time of testing was PD1911F_EX_A_1.5.3

vivo Z1 Pro: The big picture

The vivo Z1 Pro comes in at a price point that has no dearth of alternatives. While features like an innovative design should help it stand out, the online-first strategy caters to a more informed buyer. As such, the heavy-handed approach towards software on the vivo Z1 Pro could end up being a speed bump on the road to success.

USB cable

TPU Case

Earphones

Quick start manual

Warranty Card

The vivo Z1 Pro delivers a well-rounded retail package. Inside, you will find everything you need to get started off with the phone. The TPU case is a nice addition to keep the phone free of grubby fingerprints. While the quick start manual and warranty papers are standard fare, it is nice to see a pair of earphones thrown in the box.

Polycarbonate build

6 x 1.7GHz Kryo 360 Silver

Adreno 616

4/6GB RAM

64/128GB ROM

microSD expansion

The vivo Z1 Pro is the first phone in India to sport the Snapdragon 712 chipset. A small upgrade over the Snapdragon 710, it claims a slight boost in performance through a higher peak clock speed. Packing the same GPU as the Snapdragon 710, you shouldn’t expect much of an upgrade in performance here. Of course, this is still a reasonably power-packed chipset that can run almost anything you throw at it.

Battery

5,000mAh

18W Fast charging

Packing a gigantic 5,000mAh battery and a fairly frugal mid-range processor, battery life is plenty good. I was a bit surprised to observe that activities like web browsing took a bigger toll than I’d have thought. In our battery testing, the phone didn’t fare much better than the Redmi Note 7S, a phone with a significantly smaller battery.

Regardless, the phone will handily last a full day of use and then some. With mixed use, I observed between six to seven hours of screen-on-time. When it is time to charge up the phone, the vivo Z1 Pro supports fast charging. Charging the battery from scratch took just about 138 minutes, a fairly respectable time. 

Android Pie

Funtouch OS

Significant bloatware

Software on the vivo Z1 Pro is where things start getting complicated. Yes, the phone runs Android 9 Pie, but has the extremely heavy-handed Funtouch OS skin on top. Simply put, the entire user experience is completely different from how stock Android approaches it. If you are coming from a different smartphone launcher, you might face a significant learning curve here.

Starting off from the home screen, there is no app drawer to speak of. All icons are tossed on the homescreen itself, along with a limited few options to customise the experience. The option to switch the icon layout to a denser grid is hidden deep under settings. Over on the left-most pane, you will notice a widgets pane for quick shortcuts and vivo’s Jovi smart assistant.

Amongst all the bloat, you can find some smart hidden additions.

On the other hand, there are a few smart additions too. Case in point being the “Motorbike Mode” that can reject all incoming calls or automatically reply with a message. Similarly, you will find a one-handed mode hidden away in the settings. As the name suggests, it lets you scale down the viewable size to one that makes it easy to use with one hand.

Camera

Rear camera:

16MP f/1.8 aperture

8MP, f/2.2 16mm ultrawide

2MP depth sensor

32MP, f/2.0 front camera

4K 60FPS Video

No EIS

The 8MP wide-angle camera adds a lot of versatility to the set up and definitely comes in handy when trying to capture large buildings, landscapes, or just a big group of people.

Even with the beauty mode turned all the way down, it appears there is some smoothening going on when shooting with the front facing camera. Images have a mild saturation boost and look ready to go up on social media, which might be of interest to you if you’re big on shooting selfies. Similarly for 4K videos, the footage was fairly unremarkable with noticeable over-sharpening. The lack of electronic stabilisation means you will have to work extra-hard to reduce camera shake.

Audio

Equipped with a headphone jack, the vivo Z1 Pro is a rather good option if you listen to a lot of music. We tested the output over wired headphones and found the music reproduction to have a neutral sound signature. 

The downward-firing speaker gets quite loud but can crackle just a bit at high volumes. Don’t expect much in terms of sound quality but if you take a lot of phone calls on the loudspeaker, the vivo Z1 Pro will serve in a pinch. 

vivo Z1 Pro: 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM — 14,990 rupees (~$215)

vivo Z1 Pro: 6GB RAM, 64GB ROM — 16,990 rupees (~$245)

vivo Z1 Pro: 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM — 17,990 rupees (~$257)

There’s no doubting the value here. The hardware is for the most part, as good as it gets. The vivo Z1 Pro packs enough oomph to satisfy all gamers on a budget. The camera leaves a bit to be desired and that is one area where the Redmi Note 7 Pro pulls ahead by leaps and bounds. However, if you want something a bit more versatile, the wide-angle camera on the Z1 Pro proves to be the better option. 

vivo Z1 Pro review: Verdict

The vivo Z1 Pro is a very good effort by the brand to appeal to the online-only audience. Between the good-looking design, versatile camera, and a larger battery, there is enough here to recommend the phone as a competent mid-ranger. 

I wasn’t too convinced by the software skin, Micro-USB charging port, and the quality of the display, but once you look past it, this is a smartphone that can handily hold its own against the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the realme 3 Pro. The vivo Z1 Pro is definitely worth a second look if you are in the market for a new mid-range smartphone.
