Activate The Samsung Galaxy Gear
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung intentionally coupled their Gear S smartwatch so tightly with their Galaxy smartphones that they officially require you to use a Samsung Galaxy smartphone to activate the Gear S smartwatch before you can use it. Not just any Android smartphone, or even any Samsung smartphone. It must be a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or phablet. Fortunately, we have a solution, which would allow you to activate the Samsung Galaxy Gear S with any smartphone or phablet you want, even if it's the Apple iPhone. In fact, you can even activate the Gear S smartwatch to use independently of any smartphone. Best of all, the steps are very simple and does not involve the rooting of the Gear S.

Griffin Survivor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Reviewed
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today on the examining table is the Survivor Samsung Galaxy S5 case by Griffin. It seems these days a lot of companies are make tough and rugged cases. Is it us as a society that is getting more clumsy without technology or is our technology able to take less of a beating than it used it. Food for through, but that is a discussion for another forum. This survivor case is an all-inclusive case that protects all sides of the phone, including a special screen protector for the screen, if you happen to be one of those clumsy people who is looking for extra protection. However if you find that I just insulted you by calling you clumsy and you are not, I would still read on and disregard my comment as this case is even for those of you who are not clumsy, but are looking for extra protection. The survivor case is living up to its name in overall protection for your S5. Take a look below…"

UleFone Be One Smartphone Review
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 1:51A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Be One model from UleFone sports a newer Android version than Kolina K100+ V6, 4.4.2 and we have promises Android 5.0 will be also available for this model. Speaking of the device performances, we are dealing with the quite familiar octa-core MTK6592, which was released after the quad-core MTK6589, none of them sporting stellar performances regarding the GPS. The MTK6592 can be found in three different versions: 1.7GHz which was the first one and we have seen it at the iOCEAN X7S and X8, the later 2.0GHz Turbo version which we have seen with the ThL 5000 and Kolina K100+ V6, but also 1.4GHz which is the lowest clocked and also has only 600MHz 3D clock. Be One comes with the later but also features a lower-resolution screen and this is the explanation of the higher 3D scores in our benchmarks.

Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ Android Tablet Review
     Fri, Jan 09 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last fall Benchmark Reviews examined the predecessor to the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ tablet, and found that it represented an excellent value for the money. This time around, Lenovo ups the ante with a dramatically improved screen, faster quad-core Snapdragon processor, and double the memory of the earlier model. Add its unique design and construction and the Lenovo Yoga tablet becomes on of the more intriguing Android devices available

Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport Review
     Sat, Jan 03 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago, Samsung released its most-recent flagship phone, the Galaxy S5. In our hands-on review of the Galaxy S5, we were so impressed with the phone that we gave it our Editor’s Choice award. The Galaxy S5 was designed with an active lifestyle in mind as is evidenced by various features including the built-in heart rate monitor and protective shell which is IP67 rated for dust and liquid resistance. For active users who want even more health-related options than the Galaxy S5 offers, Sprint is now offering the Galaxy S5 Sport. Exclusive to Sprint, the Galaxy S5 Sport was developed as a collaboration between Samsung, Sprint, Under Armour, and MapMyFitness. The Galaxy S5 Sport will serve as the launch pad for Sprint Fit Live, a health and fitness package...

Rikomagic MK902 Network Media Player Review
     Fri, Jan 02 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time when i was really into TV screens (LCD & Plasma) so not a day went by without me looking at the specifications of all the new models getting released and since i also happened to supervise an electronics store back then i had the chance to take a look at most of them from up close. Of course back then LCD and Plasma screens didn't come ready with 3D and smart capabilities nor did they feature build-in media players so unlike today people were very interested in those brand new devices just making their debut. Even today however not all TV screens come with build-in media players and amongst the ones that do just a few have really powerful ones capable of reproducing very heavy bitrate files so although demand is obviously not the same as back then there's still interest for standalone media players. Today we'll be testing one of the latest models to hit the market, the MK902 Network Media Player by Rikomagic.

Pivos XIOS XS Media Player Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 11:18P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A little over a year ago we took a look at Pivos’s XIOS DS Media Player. This was Pivos’s first media player and while it was a great machine, it was more of a DIY system as its more or less an Android box that you had to customize yourself. The newer Pivos XIOS XS has its own TOFU Media Center GUI, which is a Pivos-customized version of XBMC that runs on Android 4.2.2. This makes the XIOS XS more user-friendly as you can pretty much boot it up and be ready to go, much like the other major media / streaming players out there. Let’s take a look…"

Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (2014) Tablet Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 12:18A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We're willing to concede that size matters, but too often in tech manufacturers take advantage of that notion by offering multiple size options of the same product, without upping the ante in any other way. Without shaming specific manufacturers, let's just say that we've seen both knock-off and name-brand laptop and tablet makers offer bigger versions of the same product without even bumping up the screen resolution, let alone upgrading the hardware inside. That's not a concern with Amazon's refreshed Fire HDX 8.9 tablet. It's not simply a bigger version of the Fire HD 7, and is instead a much better product in almost every way. Not only is it physically bigger with an 8.9-inch IPS display, but it boasts a much higher resolution at 2560x1600 (339 ppi), faster hardware, and more features...

Motorola Moto E Smartphone Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 7:18P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having just three phones on the market has allowed Motorola to give each the time and polish needed for success. The Moto X's innovative contextual processing features made it a compelling flagship option, while the Moto G is arguably the best sub-$200 device you can buy. Motorola's budget model, the Moto E, aims to be the best option for $130, unlocked and off-contract. Better yet, you get stock Android, which means no bloatware and timely updates.
