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?

Octa-Core Snapdragon, Boomsound Impress
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Casually glancing at the One M9, you’d be forgiven for mistaking the handset for last year’s version. The 5-inch display size hasn’t changed, nor has HTC’s reliance on an all-aluminum and composite finish. The company’s design cues are now linked fairly tightly with the brand, much like Samsung has done with its Galaxy design and Apple with its iPhone - which in the One M9's case is a good thing. The real magic with the One M9 happens within the shell, however. This year’s model has Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit engine, the Snapdragon 810. That’s powering Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) and a new 20-megapixel rear camera, combined with 3GB of RAM and HTC’s Sense...

low-cost Moto E smartphone
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Bottom line, if you can live with the screen and camera the 2015 Moto E provides good performance and the latest version of Android at a price that makes it a compelling option for a budget smartphone. LTE and a quad-core SoC check the right boxes for a modern device, and to sweeten the deal Motorola's aggressive OTA updates have been keeping even budget models up to date with the latest versions of Android. Yes, the screen isn’t great and the camera is downright poor, but it's hard to argue against the value regardless of its shortcomings."

Blackview Breeze Smartphone Review
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This model was mainly built for people with lower budgets, which do not have enough cash to invest in higher-specced models and Blackview has picked one of the mainstream SoCs (MT6582) of 2013 to equip it, which now also has sources for building Android 5.0 distributions.

Moto 360 Review: Android Wear-Powered
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:53A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not long ago, the battle for consumer dollars occurred on a field littered with ultralight notebooks. A few years later, that transitioned to smartphones and tablets. Today, the next major tussle is occurring on one’s wrist, in the red-hot "wearables" market in general. Motorola’s Moto 360 made waves by being the first major smartwatch to actually look like a watch - a real timepiece, not just a gadget. Most of its primary rivals are more akin to something Dick Tracy would wear, but Moto zigged when everyone else zagged. Instead of selling a computer with a band, the 360 is a timepiece that just so happens to run Android Wear. Despite being on the market for a few months now, the Moto 360 is still more interesting and dynamic than ever. A variety of bands are now available for the fashion conscious, and Android Wear 5.0 has retooled the user interface...

Today we complete our look at the 2014 ZenFone range from ASUS. So far the other two handsets – 4 and 6-inch devices – have been very impressive and cost-effective. Will the 5-inch model, now available for under £190, continue this trend or will it disappoint?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review
     Wed, Mar 18 2015 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung deserves much of the credit for ushering in today’s trend of large-screened smartphones, often referred to as "phablets." Whether you’re a fan of big smartphones or not, there is a no denying that the original Samsung Galaxy Note set the stage for the battles currently being waged in the smartphone market. If larger-screened devices like the original Galaxy Note hadn’t taken hold, Apple most likely would not have produced the iPhone 6 Plus and devices like the Google Nexus 6, Nokia Lumia 1520, and HTC One Max (among others) would probably not exist.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - grasp it tightly and never let go
     Wed, Mar 18 2015 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my time with the new Galaxy Note 4 – my first extended-use experience with a phone of this magnitude – I have come to see the many positive traits that a larger phone can offer. There are some trade-offs of course, including the pocket/purse viability debate. One thing beyond question is that a large phone means a big screen. One that can display a large amount of data whether that be on a website or in a note-taking application. The extra screen real estate can instantly improve your productivity. To that end Samsung also provides a multi-tasking framework that lets you run multiple programs in a side-by-side view, similar to what the original version of Windows 8 did. It might seem unnecessary for an Android device, but as soon as you find the situation where you need it going back to a device without it can feel archaic.

Ulefone Be One Smartphone Review Update [Controversy] @ ModSynergy.com
     Sat, Mar 14 2015 | 12:46P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A new revelation has since emerged from when we last posted our Ulefone Be One review. This new information has made everything we thought and experienced with the Be One`s camera performance make complete sense now. We pointed out how the camera images on the OnePlus One (another popular Chinese Smartphone) looked significantly better than the photos being produced by the Ulefone Be One, which was sold and marketed as having the same Sony IMX214 camera sensor as the OnePlus One. Find out the real truth of what is behind all this."

Google Nexus 6 With Android Lollipop By Motorola Review
     Fri, Mar 13 2015 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Large screen smartphones, a.k.a. phablets, are expected to account for nearly 25% of all smartphone shipments this year. Given the popularity and prevalence of these large-screen devices which includes LG’s G3, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, and HTC’s One Max, it’s not surprising that Google is also going big with its latest flagship phone, the Nexus 6. Even before the Nexus 6 was announced, its codename of Shamu (named after the whale at SeaWorld) pretty much gave away the fact that this flagship smartphone was going to be a large-screen device. The Nexus 6 has the largest screen we’ve seen from Google yet at 5.96-inches. This screen is also larger than Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus by 0.4 inches and by 0.2 inches versus Samsung's Galaxy Note 4...

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.
