Galaxy Tab S3 review: Much better than I expected!

I ordered the Galaxy Tab S3 the moment it became available back in May but couldn’t really get around to writing this review, up until now. Before purchasing the tablet I knew exactly what I was buying, I didn’t really expect much out of this device. It comes with a stunning screen, so it was perfect for my media consumption, and an S-Pen, which really got me excited as I was looking for a stylus for note taking. After using the device for the past 2 months, it is safe to say that the Tab S3 has exceeded my expectations.

World’s first cinema LED display

Samsung has been the market leader in the TV manufacturing industry for more than 10 years now, having the highest market share at 21.6% (via Statista). The company is also the largest manufacturer of LCD panels and they practically dominate the AMOLED display market (Source: ColdFusion).  Well, now it is all about cinema displays! Last month, the company announced installing its first commercial cinema LED screen in Korea, at Lotte Cinema World Tower. The display is an HDR (high dynamic range) LED theater display, that offers “true-to-life” audio thanks to the recent acquisition of Harman.  Continue reading “World’s first cinema LED display”

Terminator: rise of the machines – real world Facebook edition!

The machines have made their own language! Well… no, they weren’t actual machines, but rather chatbots. The news has been all over the internet, Facebook AI developing their own language to better communicate with each other. Seems scary doesn’t it? Not really… they are just chatbots (for now), so I guess the most they could do is talk us into extinction.

OnePlus 5: Specifications and features

It’s been a while since I wanted to post this short review, but unfortunately, I couldn’t anytime sooner. OnePlus certainly had me excited about the OnePlus 5 prior to its release, and I was determined to getting the smartphone so it could be my daily driver. OnePlus has got us used to its cheap “flagship killer” with the high specs. And guess what… The company reaffirms its standing position in the market; that its newest smartphone is indeed a “flagship killer” (specs wise), but is it really? Or are there some disappointments?

Why is database marketing so difficult in Lebanon?

The question is why is database marketing so hard for companies in Lebanon? I had a rant recently on social media, on my personal account, on how most companies in Lebanon fail to take advantage of Email Marketing. My posts focused on how most companies fail to even send out an email to highlight their upcoming events/promotions, a problem that Samsungctc doesn’t seem to face. That is great, right? Well, not entirely… I have received a few emails since the release of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, marketing the new flagship and its features. The failure in their email marketing campaign happened last week when I received an email marketing the new Galaxy S8 accessories. Shouldn’t you go ahead and get me to buy the smartphone first before you try to sell me it’s accessories? Come on… your customer database is there for a reason. Identifying your customers, the products they have purchased, and possible upcoming interests, are key for a successful email marketing campaign.

A tablet to replace your Laptop?

Back in 2013, Microsoft attempted to replace our laptops with tablets. This was done with the launch of the Surface Pro lineup, a device that is great for students, or even those who are continuously working on the go. They provided tablets with attachable keyboard covers, a stylus, and enough power to do the job. Soon many companies such as Lenovo, Huawei, Acer, Samsung, HP, Apple (iPad Pro), and many more followed down this path. Here is a list of some of those devices with the most interesting of all being the Eve V.

Many of us are looking for that elegant and dependable smartphone, and HTC has been known to manufacture such phones. This year, HTC has launched a new smartphone lineup, the U series, which contains the U-Play (midrange) and U-Ultra (high-end flagship). The company has also decided to join the competition and adopt the metal and glass design. Their new 5.7-inch flagship looks as much as elegant, as it seems capable on the specs sheet, but is that the case?
