LG V30 – specs and features

Source: LG USA Mobile

Among the smartphones launched at the beginning of 2017, the LG G6 was one of my favorites, and now, the company is back again with yet another great device. The LG V30 has just been announced two days ago and this device is an absolute beauty, inside and out. The least to say is that this phone has a headphone jack! The company is probably planning to steal some spotlight with this device, which is most probably going to be difficult to do, due to the Note 8, iPhone 8, Mate 10, and Pixel 2. Q4 of 2017 is just filled with highly anticipated smartphones. Now, let’s have a look at what the phone has to offer.

Galaxy Note 8 – specs and features

It’s safe to say that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 was one of the most, if not the most, anticipated Android phones of 2017 – 2018. We didn’t really have to wait till its unpacked event to know its design and most of its features, as almost everything was leaked over the past month. The unpacked event kicked off yesterday and as usual, Samsung really knows how to put on a good show. But it isn’t about the spectacular show and presentation, it is about the phone. Before I get into it, I must say that I was pretty much looking forward to the Note 8’s release, especially that it’s the new iteration of last years phone, which was a great phone while it lasted. So, let’s have a look at the phone’s specifications and features, and then let’s discuss it all.

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?

Huawei Lebanon fails in their marketing

Huawei Lebanon has been strongly pushing the P10 and P10 plus smartphones since their release. Their social media campaigns focused on promoting both devices through the use of a certain Lebanese professional photographer.

It’s all been good until they released their latest promotional video. The ad is basically the same professional photographer, taking photos, speaking about a certain feature, and then showing the photos. Now that seems great, doesn’t it? Well, it would have been, if they were discussing the camera, sure… but the ad was about the phones supercharge feature. Come on Huawei… seriously?

HTC U11 – Much better this time

My overall impression of the HTC U Ultra wasn’t that great and seeing the device first hand didn’t really change my opinion. HTC has just launched the HTC U11, which is greatly making up for the damages the U Ultra has caused. Continue reading “HTC U11 – Much better this time”

Smart Contact Lenses

You can’t really be surprised by the number of new devices being launched in the upcoming couple of years, especially with everything going “smart” recently. We have seen smart rings, belts, and most recently lenses. There are some companies who have already patented different types of smart contact lenses, all having different uses. With the developments we have witnessed over the past couple of years our smartphones became more computer like replacing many activities you usually need a laptop for, your watches can now track your activities and even make calls. This makes the development of more “smart” devices less surprising, but we welcome all. So, what kind of smart contact lenses are being made, and by who?
