THL 2015A Smartphone Review
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newly released THL 2015A smartphone is a lower-specced version of their previous 2015 model which now features a MTK MT6735 SoC at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a HD screen and a battery of 2700mAh. The camera sensor on the back is a Sony IMX135 Exmor RS 13MP and while it can shoot good quality photos during day time, the night shots are quite disappointing because of the excessive LED flash bleeding inside the frame.

HTC One A9 Review: Unlocked With Android Marshmallow
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:07P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC has been accused of copying Apple’s iPhone 6/6s design with its latest smartphone, the One A9. That’s not exactly a fair accusation however, since the iPhone 6 has many of the same design aesthetics as some of HTC’s previous One flagship phones, particularly the One M7 which launched in 2013. Regardless of where the design inspiration for the One A9 originated, one thing is certain: the One A9 is a good-looking smartphone with an all-metal unibody design and four attractive colors, which include Deep Garnet, Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, and Topaz Gold.

Android Wear smartwatches
     Fri, Nov 13 2015 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the sharpest, classiest, most alluring Android Wear smartwatches yet has arrived, and it's manufactured by a company that many American consumers may not be familiar with. The Huawei Watch is just about as good as it gets for a smartwatch currently. The reason? It's a watch first, and a smartwatch second. For those clamoring for a timepiece that looks like a tried-and-true premium wristwatch, look no further. Huawei has made phones, tablets, and other gizmos for years, though it has had more success in Asia than in the U.S. Standing out in the U.S. marketplace is difficult. A company typically won't get very far without wide distribution and a massive marketing budget. The Huawei Watch is the type of device that can be the foundation of a widespread marketing push to advance the brand in this market -- it is a beautiful device...

Posted by: STAFF
"Tech Armor is a very interesting story. Their goal when they started was to create a very high-quality product at a minimal cost and also offer a great warranty and customer service. Their screen protectors, mobile device cases, and cables have been #1 best sellers on Amazon and many of their products have lifetime warranties, which is something you don’t typically see. Being in the mobile space they are now offering mobile power banks, which have become extremely popular over the past few years. Today we will be taking a look at their ActivePower 12000 which is a 12000 mAh power bank that is about the size of a hockey puck, which means it can fit in your pocket! Let’s check it out!"

Posted by: STAFF
"Maha Energy has created a compact USB Power Bank that utilizes four rechargeable NiMH batteries instead of typical Lithium ones you usually see in this application. The great thing Maha Energy have done is to make it interchangeable, meaning you can use any AA or AAA size NiMH batteries on the market in this USB Power Bank! That is really creative and open minded on their part, not having a closed system. Without further ado, let's get onto the Maha Energy MH-C204U Compact USB AA/AAA Charger Power Bank Review."

Samsung Galaxy Note5 Phablet Review.
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 4:10P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phablets used to be large, unsexy slabs of glass backed by cheap plastic. Samsung managed to make phablets sexy again with the Samsung Galaxy Note5. They combined the sexy curved sides and back of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge with the flat front of the Galaxy S6.

Meet Samsung's Ultra-Slim Android Tablet
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At 5.6mm thin for both the 9.7- and 8.0-inch models, Samsung is touting the Galaxy Tab S2 as the thinnest tablet on the market. The high-end hardware you’ll find in this device, including the Exynos 7 Octa SoC and 2,048 x 1536 Super AMOLED display, make it a serious competitor to the iPad Air 2 and latest iPad Mini. Samsung's software may be it's weakest point but this is the first tablet I’ve seen this year that made me want to try out Android on tablets once again.

Featuring the same awesome mount as LUXA2’s Smart Clip, plus a built-in 2A charger, Cigar Clip is positioned to be a useful device."

ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE550KL) Smartphone Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 1:34P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is not a more affordable derivative of the ASUS ZenFone 2. It is a unique divergent model based on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, instead of the quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor. As its name suggests, the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser's key feature is its laser auto-focusing system. It's designed to complement the 13 MP main camera's contrast detection system. Its laser beams do a better and faster job of focusing on objects, especially close up. Later in the review, we will show you how effective the laser focusing system is.

Apple A9 is unique in its design
     Tue, Oct 27 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Apple A9 is unique in its design, a custom built processor from Apple that utilizes the same ARM 64-bit architecture as the Snapdragon 810, but only integrates 2 cores. These aren't off the shelf parts from ARM but rather fully custom design processors from engineers at Apple. The SD 810 is an 8-core processor while the SD 808 is a 6-core design. As a result you would expect Apple to have better single threaded performance with the A9 but fall a bit behind in the multi-threaded specific tests that can take better advantage of the additional cores. That is KIND OF what we see, but the Apple A9 is just a fantastic SoC either way – it dominates in the single threaded results but is capable of keeping pace with even the Snapdragon 810 in floating point and overall scores."
