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 Mi Note and Mi Note Pro, all the new features

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

Android 5.0 Lollipop review

"If you've been using Android over the past few months, you may have noticed that several Google apps have been updated with a fresh design -- and they all look the same. This is no coincidence: Google's putting its three-year-old "Holo" design language out to pasture, moving instead toward a look known as "Material Design." This new aesthetic is featured prominently in Android 5.0 Lollipop, and soon the rest of Google's ecosystem -- desktops, autos, TV and wearables -- will be following suit." Read more here:

Apple 2014 iPad event round up: all you need to know about iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Apple's iPad Air 2 (on the left) and iPad mini 3 (on the right)

Apple has just given its iPad lineup a refresh with two new devices: the iPad Air 2, the world’s thinnest tablet, and the iPad mini 3, a tablet… hm, actually, a tablet that has seen almost no change.
What are the new tablets all about, and how do they differ from last year's iPad Aid and the iPad mini with Retina display? Read on to find out.

Google unveils Android 5.0 Lolipop as an official name

"Along with the announcement of the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 today, Google also announced that the next iteration of their mobile OS, which we so far knew under the codename Android L, will actually be called Android 5.0 Lolipop. Android Lolipop was one of the top picks of the rumor mill anyway, but another not so distant possibility was also Lion, which seemed quite reasonable, bearing in mind it will follow right after KitKat. Android 5.0 Lollipop will ship on the just announced Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, but it will also will also be available on Nexus 4, 5, 7, 10 and Google Play edition devices in the coming weeks. Here you can find out more about Android 5.0 Lollipop." via gsmarena.com

Google's Nexus 9 available early next month with Android 5.0

As expected, today Google announced its latest tablet - the HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet. The tablet runs on Android 5.0, which has just been confirmed to be called Lollipop and packs a 9" IPS LCD with the unusual for Android aspect ratio and a resolution of 2048 x 1440 pixels (that's 4:3 plus extra space for the virtual buttons).The 7.9mm thick Google Nexus 9 is powered by the Nvidia Tegra K1 chip with a 2.3GHz CPU, the very potent Kepler DX1 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The available storage is either 16 or 32GB, but there's no expansion slot.The HTC nature of the Google Nexus 9 shines through with the BoomSound stereo speakers. For your photography needs the tablet features an 8MP rear camera and a 1.6MP front-facing snapper.Google fit a 6,700 mAh battery inside the Nexus 9, although it hasn't provided any estimates on how long it will last on a charge.Power users will appreciate the optional keyboard that Google unveiled alongside the slate. It magnetically attaches to the back of the Nexus 9 and should provide a huge boost to productivity. More here:

Google reveals the $649 Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 has finally broken cover. Google unveiled the Nexus 6, its sixth generation in the Nexus smartphone series, today, and it would be the official launch vehicle for the company’s new Android L platform.
The official Nexus 6 announcement puts an end to leaks and rumors that initially claimed Google has killed the Nexus program entirely early this year, only to switch opinion later on and bring us official renders of the device just before its official unveiling. So did the rumors come true? Let’s take a look here:

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus issues

iphone.png

Shortly after the iPhone 6 Plus was released on September 19, reports of the device bending when placed in a pocket began to surface. One user, for example, reported slight bending after the iPhone was in a pocket for approximately 18 hours, and after that, several other reports trickled in.

Inspired by the reports of bending, a YouTuber created a video depicting him bending the iPhone 6 Plus with his hands, causing significant damage to the device. The video went viral, and began people worrying about bending the iPhone 6 Plus in their pockets.
