Extend Your Android Device Battery Life By Removing Facebook App
     Tue, Jul 16 2013 | 11:55A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Facebook`s application for Android could drain your device`s battery faster by up to 20 percent. The app by Facebook, the most popular social networking service, runs in the background constantly and consumes a lot of CPU time and RAM - even if you`re not using it, or have it in a logged out state."

Sony Xperia Z Ultra 6.4 inch
     Mon, Jul 15 2013 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday Sony provided Hardware.Info with a hands-on session with its latest high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z Ultra. It's literally the bigger sibling of the current flagship Sony phone, the Xperia Z. The new Ultra is equipped with an extremely fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, but the most eye-catching feature is the size of the new phone. The Xperia Z Ultra has a 6.4-inch Full HD display, which puts it in that grey area between smartphone and tablet. We had the opportunity to play around with the new phone for about half an hour. It will be available in the third quarter of this year, for a recommended price of 719 euros.

Magellan SmartGPS RM5295T-LMB Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jul 12 2013 | 8:30A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Magellan SmartGPS is the first true `smart` GPS as it utilizes Wi-Fi or your smart phone`s data connection to interact with Magellan`s Cloud service to get Yelp and Foursquare content, live traffic and other alerts. It also has a premium design and a new interface that is extremely interactive."

Luxa2 H1 Premium Mobile Holder @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphones have become a way of life in this day and age and with them, a mountain of accessories to choose from. The market for cell phone stands, however, has always been quite bare in the way of quality offerings with only a few of the more popular phones getting stands specifically designed for them. Thermaltake aims to change that with a single stand capable of supporting any device you may have now or in the future. Today I take a look at the Luxa2 H1 Premium Mobile Holder to see if the quality Thermaltake is known for in their coolers and cases has transferred over into the mobile market."

Humble Bundle with Android 6 Review
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Humble Bundle with Android 6 is not the strongest bundle we have seen, but certainly has its strengths. It is hard to see why you would not want to get at least the base games, while the two BTA titles may only be worth the few dollars more to a smaller group of you. No matter how you look at it though, the bundle is a great deal and even if it had only one strong title, it would be a great deal. If additional BTA titles are added at the halfway point, as typically happens, the bundle will only get better."

BlackBerry Q10 (AT&T) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There`s nothing like the BlackBerry Q10. It`s a messaging monster. If you`re one of those keyboard people, the Q10 is the answer to your prayers: a well-built, modern smartphone with the best physical keyboard you can get your thumbs on."

BlackBerry Z10 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Blackberry has a special place in my heart; my first smartphone was the original BlackBerry Storm. The Storm was their first full touch screen phone and frankly it was also a very hard phone to love. Being my first smartphone I really wanted to love it, but dealing with lockups, limitations, battery pulls, and bad battery life was just life with the Storm. After experiencing Android I never went back to BlackBerry, until they introduced their Z10. For the first time it seemed like BlackBerry had listed, so I made sure to get one in and today finally I will tell you how it went."

Thermaltake Luxa2 H1-Touch Premium Holder Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Luxa2 Premium Holder is a nifty little creation that will allow an active mobile phone to be interactive without physically holding on to the device. Imagine lying in bed at a hotel wanting to watch a good flick but don’t really want to pay the cost of watching pay-per-view movies in the hotel? Well, log into your Hulu account, select your show or movie and prop the phone up on the H1-Touch and enjoy!

Seidio Active Case Combo for HTC One Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Jun 14 2013 | 8:21A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HTC One is a remarkable phone, its a nicely made device, just gorgeous really, but its thin and I think its rather fragile. I know I wouldnt want to drop it from any height at all without fear of damage. Such a nice looking device as the HTC One needs to be protected, the phone just looks very nice and it would be a shame for anything to damage those great looks so this is certainly one phone that needs a rugged and durable case to protect it to keep it looking so good. One such case is what I have for review today from Seidio, the case is the Active and what I have is actually the combination set which actually includes the case and a handy holster so it will always be handy right on your hip. The case itself is two parts, an inner soft rubber layer and an outer hard plastic layer which together provide excellent protection for the phone inside. The case also has a built-in metal kickstand so you can set the phone up and view it easily and comfortably. The second part of the set is the holster which is made from hard plastic, it features a spring lock to hold the phone in place no matter what youre doing. The case does have one small flaw though, read on to learn more. "

Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Thu, Jun 06 2013 | 8:21A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what of the S4, is it enough of an upgrade from the S3 to entice current users? Can it compete with the impressive build quality offered by the HTC One? Today we take a look at the new model to see how it fairs in the current market."

Android App Pick - Lapse It - BCCHardware
     Wed, Jun 05 2013 | 2:09P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The key difference this time around, however, is the selection of MLC NAND. As the name indicates, the Vertex 3.20 uses 20nm MLC NAND compared to the larger 25nm / 34nm variants found on the original Vertex 3. It`s part of a market-wide push for smaller flash across the board. That aside, everything else under the hood remains virtually the same although LSI now owns SandForce.?"

A year later: Transformer Prime @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 2:09P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im going to come clean to you guys/girls. I have had tablets for the past 2-3 years and for the first few years, I really never put them to use. I found them to be cumbersome, slow, and there just wasn`t enough reason to use them. Frankly I could do it all on my phone just as well, with a smaller screen of course. About a year ago I had a Transformer Prime come in. With Nvidias Tegra 3 quad core CPU I was intrigued and the optional keyboard was icing on the cake. I decided to REALLY give it a try and see what I thought. A year later I want to talk a little about my experience."

Pivos XIOS DS Media Play Android Media Player Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, May 20 2013 | 4:23A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

im Watch: A Smartwatch Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 4:27P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The smartwatch is still a relatively new concept, and I only say that because their availability, functionality, and technology arent quite there yet for them to appear on the must have list of many consumers. However, we are seeing more and more companies throw their hat into the smartwatch ring (Apple, Microsoft, etc), and this could lead to yet another phenomenon. So, when we got word that we had a smartwatch coming in for review, I was pretty excited to get my hands on it and see what it could do. Today we will be taking a look at the im Watch by an Italian based company called im SpA."

Luxa2 P1 7000mAh Portable Battery and Charger Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, May 15 2013 | 9:25A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of these devices that we think would make life easier for the masses especially if you are a mobile electronic geek is the new Luxa2 P1 7000mAh portable battery and charger. Luxa2 by that way is a Thermaltake company which is respectable manufacturer of all sorts of stuff. The P1 is designed to give you a way to keep all their portable devices like cell phones, tablet and MP3 players longer life even after the internal battery dies. The Luxa2 P1 7000mAh portable battery and charger will allow you to power up your weak or power drained device in a jiffy anytime and anywhere."
