iPad AIR 5th generation: A leaner, meaner model

IMG_9919_zps2ce3d9ae

The new iPad AIR 5th generation, is something Apple can be proud of.

Here’s the basic dirt on the new iPad:

It’s leaner and meaner: shedding a dress size or two, (7.5 millimeters thin) the iPad Air has a 43% smaller bezel, and a thinner case, coming in at just 1 pound!

Well then, does the battery work less efficiently? Continue reading…

Hands-On Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy S II Review

Well what do we have here? Is this monstrosity the Samsung Galaxy S II? Why yes, it is…

uSell.com recently got its hands on an unlocked Galaxy S II, and boy is it big and fast. And apparently it was a contestant on the Biggest Loser too because this thing lost a ton of weight compared to its predecessor: it’s super thin and light as a feather. The iPhone 4 looks and feels fat and chunky next to the Galaxy S II.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we….

Nuts and Bolts

Processor

It’s loaded with a super-fast 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor and it feels faster than the EVO 3-D-clad Snapdragon running at the same speed. 1.2 GHz and 1 GHz dual-core processors are run of the mill these days, but the Exynos processor paired with 1 GB of RAM make this phone fly. Applications load instantly, and the transitions are flawlessly smooth. I instantly noticed the speedy load times. My Droid 2 Global with its 1.2 GHz single core processor takes twice as long, if not longer, to load apps.

Screen

Just like the original Galaxy, the screen has super vibrant colors. The colors simply pop out, but is it too much? The colors look highly saturated next to the iPhone 4’s Retina Display and the EVO 3-D’s qHD screen. Perhaps the phone’s Achilles heel is the low pixel resolution. Coming in at 800 x 480, it’s lower than the HTC EVO 3D’s qHD Display (960x 540) and iPhone 4’s Retina Display (960 x 640). For some (like me), the colors are so vibrant that images look unrealistic. I prefer the more muted colors of a qHD or Retina display.

Camera

The camera is simply fantastic. The rear 8MP camera is excellent, but the 2 MP is the difference maker. It simply blows away the iPhone 4’s crappy VGA camera. You can take pretty decent pictures of whom else? Yourself! Video recording is also exceptional and lag-free. Images are clear and sharp.

Highlights

• 4.3″ WVGA SUPER AMOLED Plus

• 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 Exynos processor

• Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0

• 8MP AF with LED Flash + 2MP Front

• 1080p Full HD Recording

• 16GB/32GB Hard drive

• 0.33 inches thick

• NFC

Looks

Regardless of how fast the Samsung S II is, you’re going to buy this phone on looks alone. It’s ridiculously thin and has a huge 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. The phone is also drop dead gorgeous (even with its Quasimodo hump). There is a reason why Apple is suing Samsung- this thing looks like a blown up iPhone on steroids. It really is an engineering marvel when you think of housing such a huge screen in such a slim profile.

Wrap-up

The Samsung Galaxy S II isn’t just the best Android phone, (gasp) it’s the best smart phone on the planet (Samsung would love for you to think it’s the best in the Galaxy, but we aren’t sure). For now that is. I was definitely impressed with the phone. It has amazing specs, it’s super thin and has a beautiful design. For those looking to upgrade their phones this fall, definitely consider picking one of these up. Many phones have been tagged as iPhone killers in the past, but this one is legit, it IS THE iPhone killer. The S2 has really set the bar high for the next crop of super phones, but I can’t help but think about what Apple is going to do next.

Pros

Super thin
Blazingly fast
NFC
Excellent Cameras
Huge 4.3” Screen

Cons

Highly saturated and unrealistic colors
TouchWiz
Plastic Body

A Smart and Elegant Phone Mount: The NanoTek Stand:

The NanoTek Stand Product Review

A year ago, I had an unfortunate incident in which my bottle of water burst open in my bookbag, and drenched my Apple laptop. It was the worst Christmas Eve possible, and I was heartbroken. My laptop was a bit slow after 6 years of use, but it worked well otherwise and was now kaput. Out of business. Talk about crocodile tears!

So now when it comes to my gadgets, (phone, laptop, bluetooth, iPod) I’m paranoid of technical mass destruction. And then I came across the NanoTek by Bracketron.

Sure, it’s not advertised as a “tech-saving gadget,” but for me, I instantly saw how the NanoTek could protect my phone in the hazardous world of the office. Continue reading…

Would you convert from Apple to Nexus 5?: The Lowdown on Google’s new phone

With a full HD 1920x 1080 display,  and a 4.95 inch screen, the Nexus is something to talk about. And thin is in in technology: the new Nexus phone is svelter: weighing in at 130g.

The display is great–colorful and easy to see. It’s made of Gorilla Glass3, which is durable, yet thin. Continue reading…

Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Phab-ulous Phablet

Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Phab-ulous Phablet

Samsung_galaxy_note_3_zps092b6323

For those of you Phablet fans, it looks like Samsung has a lot to offer with the Galaxy Note 3.

Here’s the skinny:

It’s got a slightly larger display than the Note 2 at 5.7 inches, but it’s lost some weight: its width is thinner by 1.3 mm. But make no mistake, this Phablet requires two hands.  For someone like me with tiny kid-like hands, this makes the Note more of a tablet than a phone, but that’s just my two cents.

On the flip side, if you’re watching videos or reading books on the Note 3, Continue reading…
