Nokia Lumia 1020 41 Megapixel Camera Phone Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 10:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn?t seem that long ago that having a cell phone with a camera was only for those who had an excess of money laying around. It was more of a status symbol for those who wanted ?1-up? their friends and family. A few short years later, a camera phone was pretty much a standard. They?ve slowly replaced stand alone digital cameras at family gatherings, and events across the board. The traditional cell phone camera doesn?t really compare to a quality digital camera, but Nokia is looking to close the gap with their latest Smart phone. The Nokia Lumia 1020 smart phone sets itself apart from the competition with a 41 Megapixel camera!"

ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 8:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com This is the R9-270X and our version is the ASUS DirectCU 2 TOP 2GB, an overclocked version of the card which we will be comparing to the closest NVIDIA model (pricing wise) in the form of the GTX 760. Well also throw in the ASUS 280X as well to show what that extra 90 or so gets us. We are testing on the latest i7-4960X CPU, Windows 8.1 and games such as Battlefield 4, F1 2013 and Total War: Rome 2 and by the end of the article it should give you an idea of which mainstream card is best for you or whether you should go higher up the product family.

iOS 7: Six Things Apple Got Right And Six That Are Still Missing
     Tue, Oct 15 2013 | 12:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite how much people claim to like change, at the core we are creatures of habit. Described as the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone, iOS 7 has been available to the general public for roughly two weeks at this point. That’s given everyone plenty of time to get accustomed to all of the changes and vent about them, but for us, it’s served as an evaluation period. Looking beyond the flat UI and the animated background, has that much really changed in Apple’s mobile OS? What did Cupertino get right with the update and what areas or features are still missing? Here's our take.

HTC One Mini Review: Downsizing the best Android phone
     Tue, Oct 15 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On paper, the naming of the HTC One mini makes perfect sense. The mini is a mid-to-high-end aluminum-clad smartphone with a 4.3-inch display, designed for those who want a premium device without the massive size that’s often associated with its bigger and faster brother, as well as other Android 'superphones'. But will HTC’s tradeoffs have too much of an effect on the overall product, keeping it from being a great 4.3-inch device? Or will the price be just right for what you’re getting out of the box?
