The Best Smartphone
     Sat, Nov 07 2015 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve reviewed plenty of smartphones over 2015 and got hands on time with many others. The good news is that, despite the sheer number of options out there, smartphones have become so good that it’s getting harder to pick something you’d regret. But at the same time there are so many good options that picking the right one for you can be challenging. We're here to help.

Reach Cables 10 Foot Droid Charging microUSB Cable Review
     Thu, Nov 05 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got a simple product but one that’s very useful, it’s a microUSB cable but it’s 10 feet long, the longest USB cable I’ve ever seen that’s for sure. The cable is from a company called Reach Cables and it’s braided for durability and it looks nice as well. Read on to learn more… "

Samsung Galaxy Note5 Phablet Review.
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 4:10P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phablets used to be large, unsexy slabs of glass backed by cheap plastic. Samsung managed to make phablets sexy again with the Samsung Galaxy Note5. They combined the sexy curved sides and back of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge with the flat front of the Galaxy S6.

Meet Samsung's Ultra-Slim Android Tablet
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At 5.6mm thin for both the 9.7- and 8.0-inch models, Samsung is touting the Galaxy Tab S2 as the thinnest tablet on the market. The high-end hardware you’ll find in this device, including the Exynos 7 Octa SoC and 2,048 x 1536 Super AMOLED display, make it a serious competitor to the iPad Air 2 and latest iPad Mini. Samsung's software may be it's weakest point but this is the first tablet I’ve seen this year that made me want to try out Android on tablets once again.

These days, there are so many mobile GPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different configurations.

Currently covering 543 mobile GPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 24 different specifications for each and every GPU. We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates.

LUXA2 Cigar Clip Universal Car Charger
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:12P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphone car mounts are great unless your phone is dying, then you end up trying to either stretch a wire across your dashboard, or forget the mount and just charge your phone. LUXA2 realized this is a common problem and invented Cigar Clip - a mount and charger in a simple form factor. Featuring the same awesome mount as LUXA2’s Smart Clip, plus a built-in 2A charger, Cigar Clip is positioned to be a useful device."

ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE550KL) Smartphone Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 1:34P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is not a more affordable derivative of the ASUS ZenFone 2. It is a unique divergent model based on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, instead of the quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor. As its name suggests, the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser's key feature is its laser auto-focusing system. It's designed to complement the 13 MP main camera's contrast detection system. Its laser beams do a better and faster job of focusing on objects, especially close up. Later in the review, we will show you how effective the laser focusing system is.

Apple A9 is unique in its design
     Tue, Oct 27 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Apple A9 is unique in its design, a custom built processor from Apple that utilizes the same ARM 64-bit architecture as the Snapdragon 810, but only integrates 2 cores. These aren't off the shelf parts from ARM but rather fully custom design processors from engineers at Apple. The SD 810 is an 8-core processor while the SD 808 is a 6-core design. As a result you would expect Apple to have better single threaded performance with the A9 but fall a bit behind in the multi-threaded specific tests that can take better advantage of the additional cores. That is KIND OF what we see, but the Apple A9 is just a fantastic SoC either way – it dominates in the single threaded results but is capable of keeping pace with even the Snapdragon 810 in floating point and overall scores."

Scosche goBAT 6000 Portable Charger
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Portable chargers have become somewhat of a necessity these days. With so many people using their mobile devices as their main computing device and mobile gaming really picking up those small batteries in our devices do not last that long. This has pretty much caused an market to completely spring up for portable chargers. Almost everyone I know has one, and they are not even tech people! While there are literally thousands of choices when it comes to portable chargers the one we are taking a look at today is different than most. It is the Scosche goBAT 6000, let’s take a look and see what it can do!"

Cubot H1 Smartphone Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 12:48P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cubot H1 belongs to the mainstream segment since it houses at its heart the MT6735 MTK SoC at 1GHz (and a total of four cores are available), is paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and the manufacturer has also included a 5MP frontal camera for selfies along with an 8MP sensor on the back which seems to produce good quality shots. The 5.5’’ HD display is covered by a 2.5D Arc Corning Gorilla Glass solution and we also get a handy notification LED along with an IR sensor for controlling different devices via ZaZa Remote Android application. However, none of these features are the main point of attraction for this model: H1 packs a massive 5200mAh battery which would allow the product to last up to four days in normal usage conditions.

Totoro Portable Power Bank External Charger Review @ Technogog
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 12:48P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve always loved anime and all things that go along with it and there’s plenty of anime themed products on the market. My Neighbor Totoro is a very popular anime and today I have a Totoro portable power bank or external USB charger for your phone or tablet. Totoro is kind of big really, but it’s cute and it has many LEDs on it that will light up while charging or not as you can just press the button to light them up when not charging. Totoro is well made and works great and it looks great too. Read on to learn more… "

aLLreLi 24W 4.8A Dual USB Travel Charger Kit
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Do you travel? or do you just need a really nice USB charger for your devices? Then you need to check out what I have for review today, the Allreli Dual USB charger that features adapters so you can use it in UK, EU, US and AU and there’s an LCD display on it that displays the voltage and amperage of the USB ports while in use.

Nexus" branded Android Wear device
     Thu, Oct 15 2015 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technology moves quickly, but when it comes to smartwatches, things seem to be moving more rapidly than usual. We published our Moto 360 review early last year and here we are merely half a year later testing the second generation of that device. In many ways, the original Moto 360 felt like the hero device for Android Wear.

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Review
     Tue, Oct 13 2015 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2013, Asus manufactured the critically acclaimed Google Nexus 7. After a quiet period on the tablet front, Asus are back with a new range of ZenPads – and today we look at the ZenPad S 8.0. The 8.0 obviously refers to an 8-inch display, so this tablet is only slightly larger than the iPad Mini.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 Review: Multitasking On Android
     Mon, Oct 12 2015 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you want to sell a tablet to the masses -- an increasingly difficult thing to do with tablet shipments now on the decline, according to International Data Corporation -- the go-to strategy is to pitch a vibrant display and boast about its thin and light design. Everything else is secondary for most consumers, including hardware specs and benchmark performance, which are of interest mostly to geeks and savvy tech enthusiasts like ourselves.

Motorola Moto X Style/Pure Review
     Mon, Oct 12 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Moto X Style packs a 5.7-inch 1440p display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 SoC, alongside 3 GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery. Familiar features like Moto Display and always-on voice commands are present, and this time around the Moto X Style finally has a much better camera than last year's model with a 21-megapixel sensor and f/2.0 lens.
