The Galaxy Tab S3 was announced back in February, during MWC, and it’s been a while since Samsung updated their Tab S line. The Tab S3 took its time to make its way to Lebanon, but it’s finally available. I bought the tablet immediately upon arrival about 3 weeks back, but due to many circumstances, it has taken me all this time till I was able to publish this unboxing.

A friend recently contacted me with an issue he was facing at work. He needed help coming up with an idea that might help special needs children have fun and perhaps learn at the same time. Some people, myself included, recommended the use of Virtual Reality. Some might wonder about the benefits of using VR to entertain and teach special needs children. Well it’s quite simple, VR is already being used in Healthcare, clinical therapies, and anxiety disorder treatments. Nevertheless, each case is different, and we should be careful when using VR with children (I’ll leave that to specialized personnel/therapists). But when considering virtual reality and all the options out there, one is left pondering and confused in front of all the possibilities out there. The article is not only meant for my friend, but for anyone looking to try out Virtual Reality. The question to ask is a simple one with many possible answers. Which VR headset should you buy?
Let me start by saying that I’m absolutely in love with this little thing. I ordered the Yi 2 4K action camera a while back through AliExpress, and at last just received it. The Yi 2 is a second generation action camera by Xiaomi, that was released in 2016. Continue reading “Xiaomi Yi 2 4k Camera”
On the 10th of May, Samsung in Lebanon held a launch event for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus at OCEIL Dbayeh. At the event, Samsung showcased the two new flagships, along with their accessories, and the new 2017 Gear 360. Now with the being available, here’s what I think about it. As a first look, the 2017 Gear 360 looks really nice and really seems like it would fun to use. Continue reading “Samsung’s new Gear 360 – 2017”
Samsung has recently removed UFS 2.1 from the Galaxy S8 spec sheet. This has happened right after Huawei’s memory substitution scandal on the P10 and P10 Plus. To those that don’t know, Huawei installed different memory chips in the two variants, which resulted in users getting very different read speeds. Seems like Samsung has done the same thing.
Two of the most interesting Android phones, the LG G6 and Galaxy S8 have just recently become available in the markets. Two devices that offer great features, and that many users will surely enjoy. One thing that might spoil this experience is a phone that suddenly starts “acting weird”. All electronic devices will probably face some problems eventually, from low-end devices to high-end flagship ones. In this post, I will be focusing on simple solutions you can try when your phone starts to lag, slow down, or seem to use more battery. Of course, the below solutions are NOT restricted to the two brands mentioned earlier.
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.
Looking back at 2016, the S7 Edge was hands down one of the best smartphones, with one of the best designs, which it still is to this date. Things have greatly changed with the launch of the S8 and S8 Plus now. With the introduction of the two new devices, Samsung officially came back swinging after their Note 7 demise, with what might be the best design for 2017. So is this new phone good enough to have users upgrade from 2016’s S7 or S7Edge? Here, I will list some features that give the “edge” to the new devices, as well as other features and specifications that might keep away from ever considering upgrading to the new flagship.
The Galaxy S8 is already available for pre-order in the US less than one day after the unveiling of the device. The pre-order deal is kind of similar to that of the S7, where the customer would get a free Gear VR. The difference is that they have added the new Gear VR Controller for free. For an additional $99, the pre-order deal will also include premium wireless headphones from AKG and a 256 GB SD card. That’s a pretty sweet deal. One question is, will Samsung in the MENA region, and Lebanon specifically, still have pre-order deals? Especially after all the hassle that happened with the Note 7? Well, they should… To do so, would really reflect confidence and that is exactly what the company needs.
If you’re really into smartphones, then you were probably on the edge of your seat waiting for the Galaxy S8 unpacked event. Samsung today unveiled their newest Galaxy S8 flagships with them “marking the new era” for smartphone design. This statement might indicate that they are “showing off”, but it is spot on. Samsung’s newest approach to smartphone design is, to say the least, stunning.
