MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hands on

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are among the most important product launches for the company in quite some time. At a time of unprecedented levels of competition, the duo has the task to bring back the good times for the Korean giant. The past quarter has been difficult for Samsung's mobile division. Its market share and profits declined for the first time in years due to increased pressure from the likes of Apple, LG, HTC, Huawei, and Xiaomi among others. Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are Samsung's answer to the competitors and, at quick glance, the newcomers are ready for the challenge. Here is a look at their key features and specs. Read more here:

The Huawei MediaPad X2 is a 7" tablet with LTE connectivity and an octa-core processor, courtesy of the company's in-house chipset. The Huawei Watch is the first smartwatch with a sapphire screen, a perfectly round AMOLED screen. It's highly customizable with a selection of case colors and wristbands, plus 40 watch faces.

Alcatel announces new phones and tablets, all called PIXI 3

"Alcatel has definitely brought a lot of new devices to this year's MWC. Yesterday we reported on two new devices, bearing the name OneTouch IDOL 3 and it appear we only skimmed the surface. And if thought those two differently sized namesake phones were very confusing wait until you see the next badge. A total of three tablets and two phones will all share the model - PIXI 3. And the difference across the lineup isn't only in the screen size. First up there are the two new smartphones. Both are named PIXI 3 (5.5), which signifies their screen size. The most obvious difference is that one of them supports 4G LTE, while the other one doesen't. But the differences don't stop there. The lower-end model comes with a 540 x 960 pixel panel, while its bigger brother boats an HD resolution of 720p. Chipsets are also quite different - a MediaTek MT6580 in the low-end and a QCT 8909 in the other device. Both phones will have 1GB of RAM and will run Android L out of the box, but the differences are abundant. Below is a full list of the specs of each one." Read more here:

Motorola Moto E (2015) brings LTE, 64bit chipset

"Motorola just made the second generation of Moto E official – the screen size grew to 4.5", the chipset moved to a 64-bit one and also got 4G LTE connectivity. Oh, and the 5MP camera can now record 720p video and there's a VGA front-facing camera. There's no mention of a dual-SIM version yet though.The Moto E (2015) is slightly bigger, but practically the same thickness and weight as its predecessor. The screen is still at qHD (540 x 960px), which means it's not very sharp, at least it's an IPS LCD with Gorilla Glass 3 and a anti-smudge coating.The chipset is a Snapdragon 410 – a 64-bit quad-core Cortex-A53 at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 306 GPU. That's for the 4G LTE version though, the 3G version will arrive with an old-school Snapdragon 200, which goes back to 32-bit Cortex-A7 cores and the slower Adreno 302 GPU.The phone, of course, runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, which looks unmodified so it should get updates quickly, despite the change of ownership. There's 8GB of built-in storage (double what the 1st gen had) and a microSD card slot.The main camera is a 5MP shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and can record 720p video at 30fps. There are two microphones on the handset for stereo audio. There's a VGA camera on the front, not exactly a selfie dream but better than nothing (which is what the original model has).The Motorola Moto E (2015) has the same water resistance coating used on its bigger bros and a larger 2,390mAh battery (up from 1,980mAh). The phone costs $150 and is available in Black and White. You can also get a Motorola Band in Golden Yellow, Turquoise, Blue, Raspberry, Purple, Red if you want to add a touch of color. The 3G version will presumably cost less, though pricing isn’t available yet. There's nothing on a dual-SIM version either (perhaps that will be the 3G version?)." via gsmarena.com

Frutakia 2 review. Simple game but truly ultra addicting



Today we tested the latest game of Crazysoft ltd, called Frutakia 2. It’s the successor the old original game released back in 2003! Yes, 2003!! The update was a little late, it took
almost 12 years but better late than never. I was one of the many happy clients of the original game in 2003 running on my Palm OS devices. The game was fun and I had played it hundreds of times… The new game brings the old one into this age. Full HD graphics, colorful effects and the same fast frantic gameplay. (Read more inside..)

Xiaomi exploded with announcements today, and among the products the company showcased, the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phablets are unquestionably the hottest. Not only they look great and pack amazing, cutting edge-technology, they also come with a good selection of new features that are either exclusive to them, hard to find in the ocean of competing products, or represent a first for Xiaomi smartphones. Here they are:

Asus announces the Zenfone 2 and Zenfone Zoom at CES 2015

asus-zenfone-2.jpg

Asus must be on to something. They've been shipping 1.5 million Zenfones a month in Q4 last year, the company's CEO Jonney Shih shared on stage today at CES 2015. But that's not all he shared. He has also unveiled the latest smartphone in the lineup - the Asus Zenfone 2, as well as the Zenfone Zoom - a cameraphone with 3x optical zoom lens.
The Asus Zenfone 2 is boasting a 5.5" display with thin bezels, dual-SIM/dual-active connectivity with LTE and finally, a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 chipset with the world's first 4GB RAM in a mobile phone.The Zenfone 2 has a curved back with a brushed metal finish and it tapers towards the edges to form an outer edge of only 3.9mm.

Lenovo announces the Vibe X2 Pro & P90 smartphones, a smartband, and a selfie flash accessory

Lenovo announces the Vibe X2 Pro & P90 smartphones, a smart-band, and a selfie flash accessory
"To say Chinese computing high-roller Lenovo has been hard at work the past year would be an understatement! At CES 2015, the company announced two new smartphones with flagship capabilities, a trendy smart band, and a selfie flash accessory that mounts to your phone's 3.5mm jack! Sadly, and we mean it, none of the products below will be sold in the good ol' USA. We can only speculate, but we're pretty sure there are complicated reasons behind this puzzling decision.
Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro
Here's to Lenovo bringing the premium to its smartphones once again! The gorgeous, fully metal Vibe X2 Pro combines the stark beauty of Sony's Xperia smartphones with the punk attitude of its three-color layered design. Other highlights include a 5.3-inch 1080p wide-view display, 13MP auto-focus front and rear cameras, dual nano-SIM slots & 4G LTE, a Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, and Android 4.4 KitKat topped off with Vibe UI 2.0. It is powered by a 2410mAh battery. The smartphone measures 5.76 x 2.79 x 0.27 in (146.3 X 71.0 X 6.95mm) and weights 0.308lbs (140g). " Read more here:

Alcatel OneTouch announces its own smartwatch, "affordable" beauty

Alcatel OneTouch announces its own smartwatch – "affordable" beauty


Alcatel OneTouch will have its own booth at the Consumer Electronics Show, which starts on January the 6th, where it's going to show, among other things, their entry into the smartwatch scene.And a beautiful entry it's going to be, it seems, as the marketing image shows us a circular device (and – yes, a complete circle), with 4 different straps, which all look pretty stylish. Alcatel OneTouch says its aim was for a traditional look and feel, while the software inside the classy looking shell is packed with many watchfaces and "apps that allow users to monitor daily activity" (let's assume pedometer and heartbeat sensor).Named just Watch (the Alcatel OneTouch Watch), the device seems to offer as much as other wearables do – remote music playback control, photo taking, notification checking, etc., but Alcatel OneTouch also promises a “smart price”, so we could possibly be looking at the first rather affordable circular smartwatch. Unfortunately, we have no word on how low of a value a "smart price" is.Aside from the price tag being still under wraps, we also have no idea about the hardware that's humming inside the Alcatel OneTouch Watch, and no word on what OS it's running on (early reports say Alcatel homebrew). Stay tuned for more details as they become available. via phonearena.com

BlackBerry Classic Review!

BlackBerry Classic Display

"Although it's no comparison to the whopping 1440 x 1440 display on the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry Classic holds its ground in the display arena. The 720 x 720 LCD panel offers up 3.5-Inches of space, which is easily enough to get things done plus colors are bright and sharp. Additionally, BlackBerry 10.3.1 allows you to tweak up the display settings and white balance on the BlackBerry Classic a bit. If you want your device to have a 'cooler' white or 'warmer' white, it's as easy as jumping into the settings and making the adjustments." Read more here:

Dual screen YotaPhone 2 to launch on December 3

Yota Devices, the maker of the YotaPhone 2, announced earlier today its plan for a December 3 event. It will take place in London and the YotaPhone 2 will be presented and possibly officially released to market. The phone manufacturer stated its plans for the phone's release earlier at the MWC 2014, but more specific time frame than Q4 2014 wasn't available at the time.

Now though, the YotaPhone 2 looks to be ready for prime time. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2.3GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory. Photo and video capture is handled by an 8MP main camera, aided by a 2MP front-facing unit. It measures 144 x 69.5 x 8.9 mm, while its weight tips the scale at 140 grams. The smartphone is powered by a 2,550mAh battery.

The YotaPhone 2 should debut in Russia and EMEA first followed by Asia and North America. In the latter two, the phone will make it in early 2015, we assume. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.

The original YotaPhone retailed for about $295 (RUB 13990) and we hope the new one wouldn't be far from this price point. via gsmarena.com
