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.

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?

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”

Samsung removes UFS 2.1 from the Galaxy S8 spec sheet

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.

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.

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus vs. S7 and S7 Edge – is it worth the upgrade?

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 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?
