An LG Nexus tablet pops up in an import manifest

by 22 comments

According to manifest documents from Indian imports tracker Zauba, somebody has brought a prototype LG Nexus tablet into the country. It sounds pretty reasonable to guess that this may as well be the Nexus 8 we saw mentioned earlier this month in a similar manifest.

Of course, it may as well be a 10-inch slate as it’s been a while since Google released theirs. Interestingly, the last two compact Nexus tablets were made by Asus and both received stellar reviews so it would be surprising to see Google move production to LG. Read more »

Samsung Galaxy K zoom battery test

by 3 comments

The Samsung Galaxy K zoom packs a 2,430mAh battery, less that you would imagine looking at its bulk. Still, Samsung has had a few iterations to optimize its Exynos chipset for great power efficiency and the Galaxy Note 3 Neo got great results with the same chipset (but bigger battery).

LG G3 QuickCircle, Slim Guard, Slim Hard, wireless charger and USB stick review

by 10 comments

The LG G3 is one of the phones to shape the industry landscape in the short 12 month tenure before the next iteration comes out and so far it’s shaping up quite good.

LG did well to tone down the K Pop look of the Optimus UI in its latest release and the redecoration continued with the set of accessories. We’re about to check out the LG QuickCircle flip cover, the Slim Guard back panel, the wireless charging dock and the USB stick.

You all know, flagship smartphones aren’t just expensive silicon nowadays and all the bells and whistles of this or that platform. No, style is very much involved – these phones cost a pretty penny and are made to impress. They come duly accessorized as manufacturers try to maximize their appeal and, in most cases, that goes well beyond the fashion statement.

Accessorizing them has become the next fad but it’s a trend we don’t object. Just on the opposite, we enjoy it. So let’s look at the LG G3 trinkets that came in the mail this week. Read more »

Oppo Find 7 battery life test

by 24 comments

The Oppo Find 7 is only the second QHD screen-toting device currently on the market, and also brings some serious horsepower with it – enough to rival other mainstream flagships from Sony and Samsung in the performance department.

The Find 7 also has the added benefit of having a 1080p twin in the Find 7a, so we can see just how much extra battery life is required to power a 2560 x 1440px display. Read more »

by 63 comments

We threw the new Samsung Galaxy S5 mini into the pit of ravenous Android minis and they were not kind to it. The previous mini battle saw the HTC One mini 2 win a decisive victory over the Galaxy S4 mini and while Samsung’s latest flagship mini put up more of a fight it just wasn’t enough.
