CyanogenMod out of the box – Introducing the OnePlus One

It’s pretty clear: this is the most surprising Android phone of the year! After an intense teasing campaign we finally had the chance to see what former Oppo VP, Pete Lau, and his team were working at for the last few months. Mr. Lau is well-known for bringing the CyanogenMod ROM to Oppo’s N1, so after leaving the Chinese manufacturer, he though at making his own smartphone, with Cyanogen and awesome specs. Did he made it? He did it already. Big time. After teaming up with a start-up called OnePlus, only four months were needed to introduce their first smartphone: … Continue reading

Almost perfect – Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

Could this be the best Android tablet of the moment? Considering all their latest products and rumors about upcoming ones, I really feel the need to say that Sony should receive even more attention that it does currently. I mean, just take a look at their latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z2, which is currently one of the top 3 phones of the moment, alongside the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. Also, think about the rumors regarding the upcoming Xperia Z3, which is going to be an amazing device too. Catch my drift? And what if I told … Continue reading

Good news from Sony – Xperia Z3, already in the works?

In the end, how much should you wait until you release a new flagship? Sony was pretty active this year, as they introduced their new flagship and a mini version – Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z1 compact – at MWC 2014, two devices that already received a lot of positive feedback. And the ones leaving it have all the reasons to do so. The Japanese company was always famous for making only quality stuff, and the two smartphones are no exceptions. Maybe they should invest a bit more in promotion, but that’s another story. Let’s get back to the smartphones … Continue reading

Check out these! – Top 3 best smartphones you’ve never heard of

Because being made by a big manufacturer is not really necessary… You’ve probably been through this before. When it comes to buying something, you first think at picking a product made by a big, well-known manufacturer, because…well, it’s definitely quality what you’re getting. In most cases, it’s true, yo do get what you’re paying for. Still, there are exceptions. For example, when getting a new smartphone. Let’s face it, we’re all going for iPhones, Samsungs, HTCs, LGs and so on. But what if I told you there are phones which cost less and offer the same quality built and even … Continue reading

It’s happening! Google’s Project Ara, coming in 2015

How would you like to build your own phone? Remember the ambitious project Phonebloks? A Dutch designer, Dave Hakkens, most likely inspired by a set of LEGOs, had the idea of building a modular phone, which can be upgraded when it’s getting outdated, just like a PC. And what happens with great ideas? They’re bought or claimed by big companies in most cases, apparently. At least that’s what happened with this one, as Motorola, still owned by Google at that time, said that they were already working on a similar device… Called Project Ara, it was basically the same thing … Continue reading

The wait is over: Google Glass, available for everyone!

Anyone can sign up to get Google’s smartglasses, starting from today. Last year we were talking about an incredible product, developed by Google. Something which took us by surprise, after we saw a short presentation video. Something which we thought we won’t see in the near future. But everything was real. Google Glass shortly became one of the most desired…uhm, things, for every tech enthusiast around the world. After all the fuzz was created, the search-engine giant made them available in a limited series, called Explorer Edition. Basically, everybody who was willing to pay $1500 for a pair was receiving … Continue reading

Microsoft to release a 8″ tablet? Surface Mini news and rumors

Could this be the ‘best note-taking tablet’? It’s been a while since we last talked about a Microsoft tablet, because there wasn’t much about them lately, not even a concrete rumor. Still, there is a device, stuck around for over a year, whose trail is about to get hot again. We’re talking about the so-called Surface Mini, a tablet sporting a screen size between 7 and 8 inches.

HTC One M8 Google Play Edition – Is it better?

Stock Android vs. Sense 6 UI. What’s your pick? I’ve said it before in a few previous articles: I love stock Android. It’s not like the custom user interfaces used by some of the biggest manufacturers from the smartphone market are not good, but sometimes, they come with a lot of bloatware, which is basically useless. That’s right, there are a lot of preinstalled apps which will end up somewhere in your phone, never being used. And the worst part is that they require a lot of the device’s internal storage. So what’s the solution in this case? There are … Continue reading
