Oppo F1 Smartphone Review
     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 10 Hands-On Preview
     Wed, Apr 20 2016 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC unveiled its latest flagship smartphone to world early this morning, the HTC 10. Fortunately, we were able to spend some time with HTC at an event in New York City and got some hands-on time with the new phone. 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...

It features four headphone openings for universal smartphone compatibility. While other running belts hide the phone out of the sight, Griffin provides a clear window for visualizing the display and easy interaction. "

The Galaxy S7's always-on display consumes very little battery
     Fri, Apr 01 2016 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's great new features is the always-on display, which shows you the time, date, and select notifications even when the screen is 'off'. Being able to see the time at a glance is very handy, but many people have a misconception that enabling this feature consumes a lot of precious battery.

Samsung Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge Review: Hot Android Hardware
     Mon, Mar 28 2016 | 6:49P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to technology, especially the fast-paced advancement of mobile technology, design cycles are often based on either innovation or iteration. Sometimes it's a blend of both, but often times, like Intel's tick-tock silicon design process, it makes perfect sense to innovate one design cycle and then iterate and perfect on the next. It's a common practice that Samsung's chief smartphone rival, Apple is well known for as well. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones are definitely iterative product designs, but my how iteration has served Samsung so very well on these two new flagship devices...

X-Doria Revel Case for iPhone 6s/6 Review

"The majority of iPhone cases can be divided into one of two categories – protection versus fashion.
