LG G3 Review: QHD High Res Android Power
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LG is probably getting a little tired of scraping for brand recognition versus big names like Samsung, Apple and yes, even Google. However, the company is also likely taking solace in the fact that their smartphone sales figures are heading for an all-time high in 2014, with an estimated 60 million units projected to be sold this year. Part of that success probably comes from private label sales of devices like the LG-made Google Nexus 5, though the LG G2 certainly sold its fair share as well. So, at the end of the day, LG is sort of the "sleeper" of smartphone makers and as a major OEM display manufacturer, they've got the chops to compete with the best of breed in the race for superphone dominance.

Hands-On With Samsung's HOT Galaxy Tab
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung unveiled its latest flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S, at an event in New York City, and the new device is thin, lightweight, and sports a killer Super AMOLED display. Samsung boasts that the Tab S’s 2560x1600 display has a 73% better color reproduction rate than conventional LCD displays and can match colors up to 94% of “nature’s true palette” with deeper blacks and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio...

A Waterproof Smartphone For Folks
     Sat, Jul 26 2014 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Life is full of accidents and mishaps. Unfortunately, our favorite electronic devices often pay the price for our clumsiness. If you’ve ever jumped in the pool, forgetting your smartphone was in your pocket or accidentally dropped your phone in the toilet, you know all too well the feeling of frustration and disappointment that comes when you realize you’ve destroyed your coveted device. Other than monthly device insurance costs, an option is to consider a waterproof or resistant smartphone, like Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active or the Galaxy S 5, which is what we’re looking at today. Recently, Kyocera and Sprint teamed up to offer the new Hydro Vibe waterproof smartphone.

Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch Review
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wearables in general--and smartwatches in particular--are among the hottest tech trends of today. Despite a great deal of hullabaloo over these devices, though, many aren’t quite finding them as compelling as you might think. As a result, there’s a sense that no one has yet figured out the secret sauce that makes a wearable / smartwatch a "much have" device. Samsung is at the forefront of the smartwatch push, looking to develop that perfect swoon-worthy device. The company is already on the second generation of its smartwatch line with its Gear 2, the wearable that we’re looking at today...

Contract Free: Moto G And Republic Wireless Review
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we last checked in with Republic Wireless, we found that the service itself was as advertised (inexpensive and very good), but the asterisk was the handset--the Motorola Defy XT, a decidedly midrange smartphone that was the only handset you could use with the service. Worse, the price tag was a mite steep at $249. Subsequently, however, Republic Wireless added two handsets to the lineup that changed the game with the Motorola Moto X and Moto G. Although neither are considered particularly high-end smartphones, we found the Moto X to be a well-made device with substantial performance capabilities. The question we’re asking today is whether or not the Moto G’s performance can equal or exceed its value, particularly within Republic Wireless’ service, because a bargain is only a bargain if you’re getting something good out of it...

Battle of the Galaxy S5s: Exynos vs Snapdragon
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in May I had the chance to review the Samsung Galaxy S5, and as expected it performed fantastically. However, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 equipped model isn't the only S5 version available. The eight-core Exynos-powered model known as the G900H is typically sold in regions with no 4G LTE and comes as a slightly more affordable variant of Samsung's flagship smartphone. But how does it compare performance-wise? Let's find out.

HTC Desire 816 Review: A Large Screen For The Mid-Range
     Thu, Jul 10 2014 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The growing demand for devices with larger-than-normal displays has created an opportunity for alternatives with mid-range specs and affordable prices. This is where HTC's new product fits in. The Desire 816's main feature is the large 5.5-inch HD display, which comes paired with a Snapdragon 400 SoC, a 13MP camera, and design cues from HTC's recent high-end products. At just $325 it's squarely challenging the Nokia Lumia 1320 and Asus Zenfone 6.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 Review
     Mon, Jul 07 2014 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Samsung's goals with its latest Galaxy Tab 4 tablets was to create a family of products that offered good value and versatility to a wide range of potential consumers. The new Galaxy Tab 4 family is available in three sizes: 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inches and the tablets feature lightweight materials, thin bezels, and HD displays. In March, we took a look at Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. If the flagship Pro series is too much for you in terms of features or price, the Galaxy Tab 4 series may be a better option. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 which is available in black or white with an MSRP of $269.99. LTE versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 are also available through wireless carriers in the US...

Speck CandyShell AMPED Case for iPhone 5 Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Jul 07 2014 | 7:51A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review we will be looking at one of the latest iPhone 5/5S cases from Speck. The CandyShell series is one of their best selling lines and features several variants deriving from a general form factor and design. The Speck CandyShell AMPED has the appearance of a regular Candyshell case with a slight increase in bulk. This new model is devised for sound amplification by using the body of the case as a sound chamber. By using the case as a sound amplifier it doubles the volume of the iPhone without causing any extra battery usage. In addition the Speck CandyShell AMPED still meets or exceeds military standards for falls and drops."

HotHardware's Samsung Galaxy S5 Review
     Wed, Jun 25 2014 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Android smartphone wars are heating up here in Q2 with Samsung, HTC and soon LG releasing flagship devices targeted at luring in enthusiasts and mainstream consumers who might be looking to upgrade to the latest technologies and screen sizes. We just gave you a detailed evaluation of HTC's One (M8) for 2014 and today we're here to bring you our view of Samsung's new Galaxy S5 Android superphone. At Samsung's Unpacked event in February, we got some early hands-on time with the Galaxy S5 and what impressed us then is what impresses us now, now that we've had a few weeks to live and work with the device in house. The first thing that stands out is its beautiful 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display. Then you're treated to the snappy, fluid responsiveness of its beefy Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor. But, as we've come to find out with HTC's One (M8), there's a lot more to a smartphone than just a pretty screen and a screaming-fast mobile processor under the hood. It's a damn good start though... So does the Samsung Galaxy S5 live up to the build-up? Better still, is it merely just equal to the sum of its parts or are we talking true Android greatness here? Let's have a look...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
     Tue, Jun 24 2014 | 4:04A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the Apple iPad family continues to be the dominating force in the world of tablets, but the rest of us know that we have plenty of Android options to consider too. Among the most recent contenders in this touchtastic battle arena is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, the first ever tablet from Samsung that boasts the company’s signature Super AMOLED technology. It comes in both 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch variations; aside from the screen and battery size, the two models are otherwise identically-spec’d. Let’s have a closer look."

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 10 Review
     Mon, Jun 23 2014 | 4:40P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of the base games, both Draw a Stickman: EPIC and Galcon Legends are fun and enjoyable, and therefore worth picking up. The bonus Galcon Fusion game could still use some work on the Android version. Symphony has just failed to impress me and succeeded in frustrating me for about as long as I have owned it, and its presence in this bundle has not changed that."

ny Xperia Z1 Compact Review
     Mon, Jun 23 2014 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world smartphones there are typically two choices to go with: large-screened handsets with top-end specifications, and smaller devices with mid-range internals. Sony bucks the trend with the Xperia Z1 Compact, a no-compromise, ultra-portable handset for those that don’t want to carry around something with a 5-inch display. Nearly everything about this smartphone is the same as its large-screened brother, the Xperia Z1, including a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and 20.7-megapixel rear camera.

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.
