LG V10 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, May 07 2016 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With LG’s main phone line being their G series it wouldn’t be a big surprise if you hadn’t heard of their V10. I have been testing the V10 for a while and every time someone asked what phone I had they had no idea what the V10 was. You might remember the LG commercials for it though with their focus being on the camera. That’s because the V10 added manual video controls as well as a vine like ability to stitch together short clips. Add to that there are two front facing cameras it’s clear that the V10 wanted to improve on the camera experience. Well after spending time with the phone I think there is a lot more to the V10 and I wanted to go over my experience with LGs premium smartphone. Read on to find out how things went.

Lexar 633x microSDXC Card Review (200GB) – Smartphone Storage
     Tue, May 03 2016 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ability to upgrade storage in today’s smartphones seems to have become key once again. It is the dividing point between Samsung and Apple. A Samsung S7 smart phone allows the user to add up to 200GB of storage space whereas the Apple iPhone 6S tops out at 128GB, that storage increasing the iPhone price by several hundred dollars. This is leverage for Samsung and this latest smartphone trend may play directly into Apple’s financial downfall as of late, with stock losing $40 billion in market cap after earnings. This is where the Lexar 633x 200GB microSDXC Card comes in; it has ample storage, reputation, quality, warranty and value. The Lexar 633x is is a high performance UHS-1 microSDXC card that is intended for camcorders, tablets and smartphones, and it is capable of storing and playing back 1080p HD, 3D and 4K video.

Posted by: STAFF

HTC 10 Performance Review: A Snapdragon 820
     Mon, Apr 25 2016 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC launched its latest flagship smartphone on Tuesday, the aptly named HTC 10. The HTC 10 is the follow-up to devices the HTC M9 and M10 (sans the letter designation), and as such, it has similar design language and high-end feature set. The HTC 10, however, packs some of the latest mobile hardware currently available, including Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon SoC, HTC's highest-resolution Ultrapixel camera sensor to date, and 24-bit Hi-Res sound, all wrapped up in a rigid, durable metal unibody. HTC has also done some interesting things with the software on the HTC 10. In addition to including the newest version of Google’s Android right out of the box (v6.0.1, Marshmallow), the HTC 10 offers the latest version of HTC Themes with the device, along with something called the HTC Freestyle layout. Together, these HTC proprietary software tools allow users to customized many aspects of the UX on the HTC 10...

ASUS ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML) Smartphone
     Fri, Apr 22 2016 | 1:11P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS ZenFone Zoom is a remarkable combination of innovation and art. With its ox leather back, it looks like an ultra-premium version of the ASUS ZenFone 2 smartphones that came out in the past year or so. Its killer feature is, no doubt, its 13 MP main camera with its unique and innovative periscopic lens design. This allows the ZenFone Zoom to deliver 3X optical zoom without a protruding or telescopic lens.

     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Oppo F1 is loaded with a collection of very respectable hardware for its $200 price tag. Inside is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC to power a 5.0-inch 720p display, all in a slim metal body. The cameras are billed as the stars of the show, particularly the 8-megapixel shooter on the front, alongside the 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 that protects the display.

SISWOO A5 Chocolate Smartphone Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A5 Chocolate, the current low-end to mainstream smartphone from SISWOO has left us with a good impression after the tests have been completed; despite the fact that it only sports 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, the benchmark scores almost match the Cubot H1; while the rear camera sensor in the back is only a 5MP component, the resulted shots are acceptable and well-focused when we have decent light conditions. Because of the screen dimensions, A5 Chocolate is easier to hold inside the pocket versus its 5.5’’ competitors and while the battery is rated at 2200mAh, the tests are showing us optimal battery life which also means that the Android 5.1 distribution it uses is well optimized."

HTC has asked that we hold any benchmarks, technical data, or impressions of the 10’s camera performance until the full review goes live (which should be in a couple of days), but if you want a quick tour of the phone, we’ve got the goods for you here.

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2016 | 4:43P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It looks like Microsoft’s grit is paying off. After years of shepherding its Surface tablets, Microsoft seems to have convinced its partners that there is a market for premium, Windows-based ultra portables. HP’s Spectre x2 caught our attention late last year and Dell’s XPS 12 and Lenovo’s Yoga (technically a convertible) impressed us more recently. Now Samsung, a major Android tablet maker, has taken the wraps off its own Surface alternative, the Galaxy TabPro S. The tablet runs Windows 10 Home and features many of Samsung's key mobile innovations, like a gorgeous AMOLED display. All of the tablets we just mentioned mimic the Surface’s 2-in-1 design by including a keyboard. You trade away the ultra-thin profile of the tablet with a 2-in-1, but the keyboard’s few extra millimeters buy you productivity by turning the tablet into a laptop equivalent...
