LG G4 Review: A Competent, Capable Android Alternative:
     Tue, May 19 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG G4 is being marketed as a high-end, flagship device and you may wonder why there's a six-core Snapdragon 808 within rather than an octa-core Snapdragon 810. Recently, a Qualcomm spokesperson answered this very question: "The difference between the chips is that the 810 is scaled for end-to-end 4K and it’s our flagship. The 808 scales for end-to-end 2k and it still captures 4k video but it’s not built to display 4k natively on a screen."

6 Things The Samsung Galaxy S6 Does Better
     Mon, May 18 2015 | 9:25P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's official. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones are a smashing success for Samsung. Unlike the lacklustre reception to the Galaxy S5, the launch of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge saw people prebooking and even queuing up in droves to be the first to own one!

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Review
     Wed, May 13 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a year ago, we were in a similar spot. We had the latest Galaxy smartphone in hand, rand were comparing it to rivals from LG, Motorola, Apple, and Sony (just to name a few). Twelve months have passed, and as fate would have it, we've got yet another pair of Galaxy phones in the labs. This time, however, Samsung's got something that clearly stands out for previous generations. After years of success, Samsung's profits began to lag right around the launch of the Galaxy S5. The press largely criticized it for being too plasticky, not innovative enough, and not fast enough to set it apart or justify its price tag. Many wondered if the company's next flagship Galaxy would get Samsung back on track, and after handling the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, we're certain that the new power duo has indeed put the company back on the path...

VKWorld VK2015 Smartphone Review
     Wed, May 06 2015 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the older MT6582 quad-core SoC from MediaTek, the VK2015 low-cost smartphone is snappy enough for being used with the latest social applications like Facebook, Skype but also for playing simple games as Angry Birds. The chassis has rounded edges and a rubberized plastic back cover, it is easy to hold and be used with a single hand because of the smaller footprint and does not creak when pressed in certain areas. Thanks to the dual-SIM feature, we are offered more flexibility if we use two different service providers.

Xiaomi Mi Band Fitness Tracker
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Xiaomi is not a brand that most people in North America know, but that could be changing in the next few years. The Chinese company has really made a name for itself in its home market, becoming one of the top manufacturers of Android smartphones and tablets. The Mi Pad is a great tablet, even if it's a pretty blatant copy of the iPad. And then we've got the remarkably affordable Xiaomi Mi Band, a $20 fitness tracker that's arguably just as good as devices five times its price. Is it really all it's cracked up to be?"

OPPO R5 Smartphone Review
     Sun, Apr 26 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OPPO R5 was, until very recently, the slimmest smartphone in the world. Measuring just 4.85mm thick – it makes the iPhone 6 look chunky by comparison. That said, does the R5 sacrifice performance and usability for its sleek style? Today we see if the smartphone – priced at under £315 – is worth a look.

Oppo R5 Review
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphone manufacturers are obsessed with thinness. Being the 'best at' this or 'most' that gives you bragging rights and that's what Chinese OEM Oppo appears to be after with the R5. At just 4.85mm thick, it's a pretty impressive form factor, though you'll have to compromise with a smaller battery, a pretty standard 1080p display, average camera and a mid-range SoC. Can the R5 still deliver a better experience over a thicker device with, potentially, better hardware?

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
