Only a few days ago, Google announced its latest flagship Android smartphone, the Nexus 6, and it’s a beauty. The main features of the Nexus 6 are the new bigger six-inch Quad HD screen, huge 3220 mAh lithium ion battery, 13 megapixel camera with OIS, dual front speakers and of course Android Lollipop. I love the curved back design and the big bold camera placement on the back.
This weekend I finally had a chance to play around with Instagram‘s new Hyperlapse App and had a lot of fun! In the past it took a little bit of fiddling around with your video or digital SLR to capture a proper time lapse, but now with Hyperlapse it’s child’s play! Simply download the app to your iPhone, hold it still (recommend that you use a stand), press record and voila!
Only a few hours ago, LG Electronics unveiled it’s latest flagship device, the LG G3. LG hasn’t held back any punches, letting loose a flurry of improvements that will place the LG G3 amongst the top Android contenders of 2014 (Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Sony Xperia Z2 being the others). Some features that caught my attention were: super high 5.5 ” screen resolution (Quad HD 538ppi), speedy Qualcomm Quad-Core 2.5Ghz chip, 13MP camera with laser auto focus, huge 3,000mAh battery and polished rear back cover which gives it more of a premium feel.
Every time I see a new LG phone, I can’t help but compare it to the first LG Android phone, the GW620 which I owned and reviewed way back in 2010.
Looking forward to getting my hands on the new LG G3 and reviewing it. The LG G3 should be available in select countries at the end of June. Follow @LGUSMobile for more news.
With a huge capacity 2800mAh lithium ion battery powering the new Samsung Galaxy S5 (S4 had a 2600mAh battery), it’s easy to get a full day’s use out-of-the-box without doing any device settings tweaks at all. This is superb. Google’s KitKat OS update also plays major role in the S5’s increased endurance. As most of you know, I use a lot of social media on a day-to-day basis which means a lot of background data updates via mobile data and wireless – most smartphones are dead in a few hours. With the Galaxy S5 I’ve been able to get a day and a half consistently. Huge difference compared to the S4 where I was only able to get 8-9 hours max. I’ve written this post to help you get even more hours out of the S5 battery by doing some minor tweaks.
I’ve had the Samsung Galaxy S5 now for around 2 weeks – enough time to put it through its paces and see if it can keep up and hopefully improve my productivity. Yes, it’s an upgrade from the S4, but not a huge one. There are three things I really love about the S5 : performance boost due to hefty new 2.5GHz quadcore processor, IP67 which means that rain or pools or toilets won’t kill it and the improved battery life.
For all leather case lovers and new Samsung Galaxy S5 owners out there, I’d like to introduce you to my latest case design, the Aranez Flip Samsung Galaxy S5 Leather Case!
It was only late last week that Google announced its flagship Android device for 2013, the Google Nexus 5. This is the first Android device officially running Google’s latest version of its mobile OS, Android 4.4 aka KitKat. What’s so special about this Nexus? From the looks of the first Nexus 5 advertisement posted up on Youtube, it looks like it’s all about the camera function.
If you’re in the market for a new phablet this year, especially an Android flavoured one, you’re in for a treat. There are so many great devices to choose from it’s not funny. Just last week, Sony unleashed the Sony Xperia Z Ultra 6.4″ smartphone which features the world’s first Full HD display. For movie watchers, this is going to be a sweet treat. To power this new display and everything else within, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra boasts the fastest processor in a smartphone device yet, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPUs!
