Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge
     Mon, Mar 02 2015 | 12:29P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the wee hours of the morning of the 2nd of March, 2015, Samsung Malaysia invited us to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Unpacked event. Even though it was held at the Theatre Lounge Cafe, Plaza Damas 3 in Sri Hartamas from 12:30 am until 3 am, we arrived to a packed room, and they were expecting even more members of the media to arrive.

littleBits Smart Home Kit Review
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Retrofitting an existing home with so-called "Internet of Things" gadgets isn’t cheap, but with the right tools you can hack cloud functionality into your dumb appliances. littleBits is an ever-growing library of small electronic modules that easily connect together. Created by Ayah Bdeir, it started as a tool to help designers incorporate electronics into the prototyping process. Today, it’s much more than that. Think of them as Legos for the iPad generation.

Samsung Portable SSD T1 Review: Blazing Fast External Storage
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The bulk of high-capacity external storage devices still rely on mechanical drives with spinning platters and other delicate parts. That being the case, Samsung saw an opportunity to capitalize on a market segment that's seen very little action -- external SSDs. To be clear, there are external storage devices that use SSDs, but Samsung's new Portable SSD T1 is more akin to a thumb drive, only wider and typically much faster. Utilizing Samsung's proprietary 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology and a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, the Portable SSD T1 redlines at up to 450MB/s when reading or writing data sequentially, according to Samsung...

Samsung Galaxy A5 Review
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy Alpha, the first high-end smartphone in their range with a part-metal body. The handset was a good, yet flawed step forward for the company, failing to live up to its premium price tag from a hardware and battery life standpoint. Rather than completely dropping the Alpha design, Samsung reworked it for a new and much more compelling product for the mid-range market. The A5 is a $400 smartphone inside a $700 body.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G Smartphone Review
     Wed, Feb 25 2015 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Redmi Note 4G smartphone has impressed us positively because if offers a lot for its value; the incorporated Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 SoC from Qualcomm may not have a very powerful 3D component but it compensates with good CPU performance, quite decent power consumption and thanks to that we did not have the feeling that the smartphone discharges pretty fast right in front of our eyes as we have seen with some MTK6592 units which have reviewed in the past.

Roccat Kone Pure and Roccat Sense 2mm
     Wed, Feb 25 2015 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While gaming as a whole covers a broad spectrum of genres and styles, there is one common theme that exists throughout a large percentage of titles: that human beings love playing at war. Which is perhaps why Roccat went for this camouflage green colour scheme for its latest edition of the Roccat Kone Pure, combining a relatively modest 5,000 DPI optical sensor with its usual high-end background software for customising your mousing experience.

Patriot FUEL iON Kit Review
     Wed, Feb 18 2015 | 5:13P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you own any type of mobile device you know keeping it charged is a pain. You lose the charging cable that came with the device, that cable breaks, or you lose the wall adapter. It just happens and it is annoying. Well Patriot who we typically know for their memory and solid state drives has an easy way for you to charge your devices that makes it much more convenient. The product I am talking about is the FUEL iON kit which is comprised of a phone case and charging stand. The thing that makes this kit different from other charging devices is that it features a magnetic power transfer pad that not only will charge your device without a “real” connection, but will also hold your device securely in place. Want to know more? Keep on reading!"

Echo Connect EchoKey Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Wed, Feb 11 2015 | 3:39P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you?ve ever found yourself without a phone charger whether that?s for your iPhone or Android smartphone then you know the annoyance of knowing you?re going to run out of battery at any moment. The EchoKey from Echo Connect is a small flexible charge key that can be kept on your car keys or house keys and allows you to charge your device anywhere where you have access to a USB port without the need for a USB cable.?"

Qualcomm's familiar Snapdragon 805 system
     Sun, Feb 08 2015 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of the world gets a variant of Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 based on Qualcomm's familiar Snapdragon 805 system-on-a-chip (SoC). In Samsung's home country of Korea, though, the firm ships a different variant of the Note 4 based on Samsung LSI's Exynos 5433 SoC. With eight 64-bit CPU cores and a 64-bit Mali-T760 GPU, the Eyxnos 5433 could make this version the fastest and most capable Note 4--and it gives us some quality time with the Cortex-A53 and A57 CPU cores that will likely dominate the Android market in 2015.

Posted by: STAFF
You already know about smart watches or you wouldn't be here reading this. The latest in wearable technology allows you wrist access to many of the features you love on your smart phone without having to take it out and turn it on. A quick turn of your wrist and you can check a myriad of things limited only by the ever expanding available android wear applications.

I hope it will help you when making your decision for a smart watch.

Kolina K100 + V6 Smartphone Review
     Thu, Jan 29 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kolina K100 + V6 smartphone we have reviewed in this article shares the same SoC with the ThL 5000 and is a slightly overclocked version of the MTK6592, with the letter T at the end for Turbo. This SoC seems to provide decent performances for a mainstream product and is able to run most of the games available on Play Store. This specific terminal is quite an enthusiasts' dream since it has been picked by many ROM makers so we have widely known versions available for it like MIUI, ColorOS and so on. The K100 + V6 SoC is also paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory but does not feature a microSDHC card slot for expanding the storage even further.
