ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe Smartphone Review
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS launched an array of products a few weeks back at its Zenvolution event in New York City. Among them was the gorgeous ZenBook 3 Ultrabook, the convertible Transformer 3, and an assortment of Android-based smartphones that carried ZenFone 3 branding. The four ZenFone 3 models that launched included the entry-level ZenFone 3 Laser, a 5.5” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, a 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and a flagship 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition, which packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC. The specifications, build materials, and pricing for the various ZenFone 3 phones that launched are all different. The ZenFone 3 Laser is a $199 phone, which the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition commands a loft $799. The 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe that we’ll be showing you here, however, hits somewhat of a sweet spot in our opinion. As you’ll see in the spec table below, the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe is packing some serious heat, which competes favorably with some of today’s best smartphones. But its price is far more palatable...

Huawei Honor 8 Review: A Stylish, Affordable Android
     Wed, Nov 30 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Priced at $350 currently on Amazon, the Honor 8 looks and feels like a more expensive phone. It's also fairly well equipped with a Hisilicon Kirin 950 SoC boasting an octa-core processing engine with an i5 co-processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage that you can expand with a microSD card. That right there is a potent foundation...

iPhone 7 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 30 2016 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So over the past few years I have reviewed 23 different mobile devices and on top of that I have tested and used at least another 23. In that time I have used every variation of Android available, Windows phones, multiple Blackberrys, and even a few Palm devices before they went away. What has been missing though has been a proper test of an iOS device. I’ve toyed with iPads and iPhone and even owned a few different iPods but its never been enough to really get a feel for it. Part of that is because I’ve never bought an iPhone for myself but it also comes down to review sampling for iPhone never being available through the channels we have worked through. Well with the launch of the iPhone 7 that changed, Verizon had a phone for me to check out and I have been using the iPhone7 for about a month and a half. In that time I have put aside any bias and learned how iOS works and tested the new iPhone 7 to see what it is all about. I’m certainly not the first person to cover the phone, but come with me to check out a first time iPhone users experience.

Motorola Moto G4 Play Review
     Sun, Nov 27 2016 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For budget smartphone buyers, the phone series I continually recommend is the Motorola Moto G. Now in its fourth iteration, the Moto G has delivered excellent entry-level value since its inception, despite increasingly stronger competition from Chinese vendors. The recently-released Moto G4 Play is no exception.

Motorola Moto Z Force Droid @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Nov 10 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not too long ago the idea of a premium phone was really just a big screen, a fast CPU, and maybe a decent camera. Over the past few years, the premium phone market has really grown and with that we have seen a wide variety of different features help set these phones apart. With the new Moto Z line of phones, they have a few different phone options including the Force model that I’m going to check out today. Features like high battery life, a shatterproof screen, and a fingerprint reader will be useful to everyone, but it’s the Moto Mods that I think everyone will remember the Moto Z Force for. The phone has a back panel that lets you swap out different back plates and a few premium features like an additional battery, a speaker, or even a projector. Verizon sent along the Moto-Mods speaker along with the phone for my testing so I do get to get a feel for the hot swappable features.

Google Pixel XL Review
     Thu, Nov 10 2016 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nexus is dead, and Pixel is here to replace it. It's the biggest shift in Google's homegrown smartphone strategy since the first Nexus launch in 2010. Pixel is the first true "Google phone" and they believe this is the right hardware and software to compete with the iPhones and Galaxies of the world.

Moto Z Play Review: 8-Cores And Insane Battery Life
     Sat, Nov 05 2016 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Moto introduced the Moto Z family back in July with the launch of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. Packed with flagship worthy hardware like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, both phones made a serious statement (click for full review) thanks to their modular capabilities, by way of Moto Mods. Moto Mods tune the already premium smartphones to a whole new level when attached. We were impressed by the Moto Mods we played with, including JBL's SoundBoost and the Moto Insta-Share Projector. Unfortunately, these phones were tied to Verizon at the time of our review, but unlocked variants are now trickling onto store shelves. Today, however, we take a close look at the newest sibling in the Moto Z family - the Moto Z Play. The Moto Z Play is pitched as a more affordable alternative to the Moto Z and Moto Z Force...

PowerVR GPUs from Imagination
     Wed, Nov 02 2016 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previously, Apple’s iPhones and iPads used PowerVR GPUs from Imagination Technologies for graphics. Based on our analysis, Apple has created a custom GPU that powers the A8, A9, and 10 processors, shipping in the iPhone 6 and later models, and some iPads. Using public documents, we demonstrate that the programmable shader cores inside Apple’s GPU are different from Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR and offer superior 16-bit floating-point performance and data conversion functions. We further believe that Apple has also developed a custom shader compiler and graphics driver. The proprietary design enables Apple to deliver best-in-class performance for graphics, and other tasks that use the GPU, such as image processing and machine learning.

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.
