Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jul 11 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While there seems to be an endless number of Android phones on the market, for those of you shopping for one this summer are most likely only going to be looking at just a few. The perennially popular Galaxy S lineup being at or near the top of that list. This year Samsung introduced the S6 with two models (and just recently announced a third), you can pick from the regular Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. On top of wanting to see what the new Samsung phones had to offer, I also really wanted to take a closer look at the difference between the two phones. I spent a little time with the original S6 and then spent a bunch of time with the Edge to see what sets it apart and also to see what justifies its higher price point. So today I’m going to talk a little about my experience.

Asus ZenFone 2 Review: Excellent Android Value
     Wed, Jul 08 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS ZenFone 2 is one of the more interesting devices to hit the HotHardware reviews desk in some time. We spent a bit of time previewing it earlier this month, and now we've assembled a full review after using it more regularly as our daily dialer. The higher-end model, which is what we're testing here, is available widely for just $299 unlocked.

Acer Liquid Jade S Smartphone Review
     Wed, Jul 08 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little while ago we had a look at the Acer Liquid Jade – the first device in Acer’s Liquid Jade smartphone range. Today we are looking at the Liquid Jade S, the successor to the original Liquid Jade. With a new octa-core processor, and higher RRP to match, is it worth the additional investment?

Microsoft Surface 3 Review
     Tue, Jul 07 2015 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The full metal body of the Surface 3 makes it one of the best designed, most attractive Windows tablets on the market. Throw in great features like the three-position kickstand, the hidden microSD card slot, the full-sized USB port, the 3:2 display, and Microsoft has nailed the design of this tablet.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925) Smartphone Review.
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since we received the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, we have been testing them out extensively in the field and even demoing it to everyone we meet.

Rollei CarDVR-120 GPS 1296p Car Camera Review
     Sat, Jun 27 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Driver error is a phrase I’ve heard many times from people who tried with very little luck to convince police officers and insurance companies that they weren't responsible for car accidents. Unfortunately although technology has made it possible for everyone to have a tiny camcorder on the dashboard of their cars to avoid such issues not many decide to do so where i live but judging by the sheer number of people who are currently using such devices in large countries like the USA, Taiwan and Russia i suspect that it will not be long before this changes. Not too long ago the very first next generation 1296p (2304x1296/30fps) SuperHD/XHD Dashcam models were revealed and we had the chance to test the Marcus 3 by Vicovation which was quite good although we did feel that there was room for improvement. Today we will be taking a look at the SuperHD proposal by Rollei the CarDVR-120 GPS Car Camera.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review
     Sat, Jun 20 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Galaxy Alpha accompanies the Galaxy S5 at the top of Samsung’s line-up. The 4.7-inch device is a smaller alternative to their popular flagship, designed for people who place form at the top of their priority list. Samsung seems to be realizing that cheap plastic just doesn’t cut it anymore for its flagship smartphones, but the choice to focus on design has also left the Alpha with slightly downgraded specs compared to the S5.

     Sat, Jun 13 2015 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newest reincarnation of the COOKOO watch features numerous improvements and now the watches are split in two different categories, the Sporty Chic Collection but also the Urban Explorer Collection. Thanks to the simplified notification system and Bluetooth LE, the internal battery can last up to one full year and it can be replaced by simply removing the back cover with a familiar CR2032 model.

UMI C1 Smartphone Review
     Sat, Jun 13 2015 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
UMI has prepared another affordable but large-diagonal smartphone with 1280x720 resolution; we could also mention the 1.3GHz MTK6582 quad-core SoC which is paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM, support for microSDHC cards in order to expand storage space and also one 8MP Sony camera which is also found with the Nexus 5.

SISWOO C50 Longbow Smartphone Review
     Sat, Jun 13 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We really enjoyed looking upon one of the latest smartphones which feature the 64-bit CPUs from MTK, the SISWOO C50 Longbow, which is a 5’’ HD terminal, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage capacity. Its memory can be always enhanced via a microSDHC card and for taking photos we have one frontal 5MP selfie camera, while in the back there is one 8MP OmniVision sensor which seems to take very nice quality shots. This is not all: SISWOO saw fit to equip this model with a 3000mAh battery so we would get more standby and screen times.

Patriot FUEL iON iPhone 6 Magnetic Charging
     Mon, Jun 08 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

QUOTE:"We've used and enjoyed the FUEL iON Galaxy S4 case, will the iPhone 6 edition stand up to the same praise? Read on to find out."

Vodafone Smart Tab 4G Tablet Review
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent years, more and more mobile network operators have started releasing their own mobile devices. EE have released the Kestrel phone and the Eagle tablet, for instance. Today we look at a tablet from Vodafone, the Smart Tab 4G. Competitively priced at £125, it is aimed at consumers looking to avoid the biggest price tags but still get a decent – if not phenomenal – device.

The LG G4
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG G4 is being marketed as a high-end, flagship device and you may wonder why there's a six-core Snapdragon 808 within rather than an octa-core Snapdragon 810. Recently, a Qualcomm spokesperson answered this very question: "The difference between the chips is that the 810 is scaled for end-to-end 4K and it’s our flagship. The 808 scales for end-to-end 2k and it still captures 4k video but it’s not built to display 4k natively on a screen."

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review
     Fri, Jun 05 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Microsoft acquired Nokia’s smartphone division, the company has focused its efforts on mid-range and entry-level handsets, with the Lumia 640 we are reviewing today being their latest. It's got a decent hardware package for the price and runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, with a promised upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile later this year.

Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Review
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The launch of the Galaxy S6 is one of the most important for Samsung in a long time, and this time around there’s not just one flagship, but two: the company has released a curved-display Edge variant. Both come with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a top-end 1440p resolution, a brand new Exynos 7 Octa 7420 SoC, and a 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera. Unlike with the past three generations of Galaxy flagships, there’s no Qualcomm model in sight.

ASUS Zenfone 2 Review
     Wed, May 27 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week ASUS launched the Zenfone 2 and we were able to get our hands on this brand new smartphone that costs less than $300 outright. Yes, we are talking $299.00 unlocked smartphone here that doesn't require a contract that will work on the AT&T and T-Mobile carrier networks here in the United States (Sprint and Verizon are not supported). While the price tag on this device might be less than half of the price of a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Apple iPhone 6 Plus, the specifications of Zenfone 2 look pretty damn good! Read on to find out more about the phone and to see how it performs!
