Nucharger PB13 13000mAh Power Bank Review @ Technogog
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 9:54P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got another portable charger or USB battery pack from a company called NuVending, the product is called the NuCharger and it’s different than other batteries I’ve reviewed before as this one has a built-in Bluetooth headset, it’s a combo product that I find rather useful. The battery is 13000mAh in capacity and has two 3amp USB ports for fast charging and the Bluetooth headset even comes with an extra earbud to connect to it so you can have stereo sound on the go.

Google Nexus 5X Review: A Model Of Efficiency
     Sat, Dec 26 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The original Google Nexus 5 shipped right around this time two full years ago. Much has evolved in the smartphone space in the 24 months since then, but little has changed in terms of branding with this latest LG-built Nexus device. The 5.2-inch Nexus 5X we will be showing you here is positioned as the mainstream Nexus phone in the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) lineup, with an unlocked base price of only $379, though street prices are actually lower. Put simply, the Nexus 5X is designed for mainstream smartphone users, looking for a strong value. Google thinks this phone hits a sweet spot in the lineup, and we'd probably agree with that assessment. Though it doesn't pack the latest and greatest innards, the overall package is stout, and it's capable of powering through most tasks quite well...

Apple iPhone 6S Review - iPhone 6S Versus iPhone 5
     Sat, Dec 26 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Christmas is just one week away and if you are one of those last minute shoppers you might still be looking for a gift. The Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus has been out for a few months now and there are a number of holiday promotions available right now to help entice people to purchase one of the new models. AT&T is even doing a buy one get one (BOGO) offer on the iPhone 6S series that might make it a great gift item that will allow you to gift yourself one as well. There have been a literally thousands of iPhone 6s reviews posted since the smartphone debuted in September 2015, so we are going to try to do our phone review a little different and compare it to the aging iPhone 5 that came out in September 2012.

ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE550KL) Smartphone Review
     Tue, Dec 22 2015 | 2:44P | 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.

5.96-inch Nexus 6
     Thu, Dec 10 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're taking a look at Google's latest Nexus-branded phablet, the Nexus 6P. Arriving just under a year after the Motorola-built, 5.96-inch Nexus 6, the Nexus 6P is actually a hair smaller, thinner and indeed, slightly more manageable. The 6P also marks Huawei's first foray into Google's Nexus family of products, which may allow the company to make a larger impact on the U.S. market -- a market which has been hesitant to embrace the brand on its own to this point. In terms of its specifications, the Nexus 6P is a significant upgrade over the Moto-built Nexus 6 from 2014. It's also far more attainable. Rather than a $699 starting point as with the Nexus 6, the Nexus 6P starts at $499 for the 32GB model, and even the top-end 128GB model costs but $649. To put that in perspective, the top-end 128GB iPhone 6s Plus demands $949. So, how does Google's latest Android purity-powered Nexus stack up?

Google Nexus 5X Review
     Tue, Dec 08 2015 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nexus 5X is Google’s new mid-range contender, designed alongside the Nexus 6P to be the company’s poster boy for Android 6.0 ‘Marshmallow’. A true successor to the Nexus 5, the 5X includes a modest yet decent array of hardware starting at $379 for the 16 GB model, including a 5.2-inch display, Snapdragon 808 SoC, 2GB of RAM and a large-pixel 12.3MP Sony camera sensor.

Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ Tablet Review
     Sun, Dec 06 2015 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Key Ingredient Recipe Reader Tablet that we reviewed last year was a bit of a disappointment as the tablet itself wasn't that great. The new Key Ingredient Recipe Reader HD+ is powered by an 8-core MediaTek MT8752 64-bit SoC that can run up to 2.1 GHz, so performance shouldn’t be that bad as you certainly don’t need that many cores to run the recipe reader app! Other notable internal hardware features include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage space, 802.11n Wi-Fi,Bluetooth 4.0 and FM Radio. Read on to see how it performs!

Cheero Power Plus 3 13400mAh Portable Charger Review
     Fri, Dec 04 2015 | 4:34P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We can never have too much power, with many people using their mobile device as their main computing device and people using multiple devices (smartphone & tablet) products like portable chargers have become extremely popular. Almost everyone I know has at least one charger their their mobile device, and half of them I wouldn’t even “tech” people. Cheero has been making mobile power banks and similar devices since 2011. Their latest is the Power Plus 3 which is a 13400 mAh portable charger that fits in your pocket! It makes use of high grade Japanese-made batteries and has dual USB power outputs. Let’s see if the Power Plus performs as good as it looks."

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Dec 04 2015 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to the smart phone market, I think we can say that the Samsung Galaxy line launching a new phone makes waves similar to the new iPhone launches. They have a large portion of the Android market. I’ve been lucky enough to have the chance to test and review a good portion of their product line over the years with the most recent being S6. Well about 4 months after the S6 launched Samsung brought out their larger Note 5 and I have been testing it. Today I can finally sit down and talk a little about my experience as well as dig into the phones features and benchmark performance as well. So sit down, relax and let’s take a look at the Galaxy Note 5.

Sony Xperia Z5 Review
     Mon, Nov 30 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony Xperia Z5 has, on paper, everything you’d want from a high-end smartphone. There’s a 23-megapixel camera on the back with “Hybrid Autofocus”, a 5.2-inch 1080p display powered by a Snapdragon 810 SoC, microSD support, fingerprint reader and two days of battery life in a 7.3mm thin water resistant body. Unfortunately, there’s no USB Type-C or Android 6.0, so it’s lagging behind the latest Nexus phones in that regard.

Microsoft Demonstrates The Surface Pro 4's Artistic Flair
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 3:47P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

THL 2015A Smartphone Review
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newly released THL 2015A smartphone is a lower-specced version of their previous 2015 model which now features a MTK MT6735 SoC at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a HD screen and a battery of 2700mAh. The camera sensor on the back is a Sony IMX135 Exmor RS 13MP and while it can shoot good quality photos during day time, the night shots are quite disappointing because of the excessive LED flash bleeding inside the frame.

HTC One A9 Review: Unlocked With Android Marshmallow
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:07P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC has been accused of copying Apple’s iPhone 6/6s design with its latest smartphone, the One A9. That’s not exactly a fair accusation however, since the iPhone 6 has many of the same design aesthetics as some of HTC’s previous One flagship phones, particularly the One M7 which launched in 2013. Regardless of where the design inspiration for the One A9 originated, one thing is certain: the One A9 is a good-looking smartphone with an all-metal unibody design and four attractive colors, which include Deep Garnet, Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, and Topaz Gold.

Android Wear smartwatches
     Fri, Nov 13 2015 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the sharpest, classiest, most alluring Android Wear smartwatches yet has arrived, and it's manufactured by a company that many American consumers may not be familiar with. The Huawei Watch is just about as good as it gets for a smartwatch currently. The reason? It's a watch first, and a smartwatch second. For those clamoring for a timepiece that looks like a tried-and-true premium wristwatch, look no further. Huawei has made phones, tablets, and other gizmos for years, though it has had more success in Asia than in the U.S. Standing out in the U.S. marketplace is difficult. A company typically won't get very far without wide distribution and a massive marketing budget. The Huawei Watch is the type of device that can be the foundation of a widespread marketing push to advance the brand in this market -- it is a beautiful device...

Tech Armor ActivePower 12000 Mobile Power Bank Review
     Wed, Nov 11 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Tech Armor is a very interesting story. Their goal when they started was to create a very high-quality product at a minimal cost and also offer a great warranty and customer service. Their screen protectors, mobile device cases, and cables have been #1 best sellers on Amazon and many of their products have lifetime warranties, which is something you don’t typically see. Being in the mobile space they are now offering mobile power banks, which have become extremely popular over the past few years. Today we will be taking a look at their ActivePower 12000 which is a 12000 mAh power bank that is about the size of a hockey puck, which means it can fit in your pocket! Let’s check it out!"
