Samsung Galaxy edge note 5: without S pen, but with a keyboard cover

Standard

Like his predecessor last year also the Samsung Galaxy to regain note 5 an edge offshoot with curved display – but surprisingly not the typical touch stylus S pen bring. For Samsung to plan practical keyboard cover for both devices.

Samsung should have renamed the internal working title of the device from “Project Zen” to “Project Zero 2″, will have learned from his usually well informed sources SamMobile. The Phablet on behalf of at least would make edge, which ran alongside the regular Galaxy S6 under the name “Project Zero” rather a successor of Samsung Galaxy S6. Against this background it would be even less surprising, if Samsung would waive the S pen in his next edge Smartphone 鈥 after all, for the note number, must not necessarily be attributed to “Project Zero 2″ is typical.

Samsung Galaxy to come in the autumn note 5 and “Project Zero 2″

Regardless of the open question of whether such Samsung is now market as an offshoot of the Galaxy its next edge Smartphone touch 5 will or not, both devices will be presented in the autumn. As for his touch smartphones usual Samsung eyeing a revelation during the IFA according to the report, which will be held in Berlin from 4 to 9 September 2015. Rumors of an early release of the Galaxy note 5 to an edge over the iPhone 6 s and the direct competitors to reach iPhone 6s, plus denied Samsung recently.

Samsung should “Project Zero” as well as the Galaxy note 5 again a S buy view cover and the clear view case last somewhat into disrepute. According to the report, a so-called keyboard cover is newly added. This could it be a fold out keyboard, similar to how Microsoft it for the Surface Pro 3 offers. Despite expected display dimensions between 5.4 and 5.7 inches the keyboard for the Samsung Phablets would than of course significantly smaller at Microsoft’s tablets. There, a small caveat appears likely, also served in the BlackBerry-style with the thumb.

Good plan – Lumia 635 + 鈧25 of apps available for 鈧69.90 after ODR

Standard

As in recent weeks, Lumia 640 attempts to seduce the market with a strong enticing price/equipment ratio, its predecessor, Lumia 635 sees its price melt. Today, the combination of the Microsoft offers and a good starting price allows to offer the mobile and 鈧25 鈧69.90 applications passing through Cdiscount.

But let’s start by refreshing memories. Lumia 635 is now in the position of an entry-level 4G model. It has a 4.5 inch screen which does not shine by its definition of 800 x 480 px, but which is distinguished by very correct colors and contrast. Like many of Lumia, he embarked a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (4 core Cortex A7), here married to 512 MB memory RAM. This is more than enough for Windows Phone 8.1, but might be a bit tight for a transition to Windows 10. Its internal memory is 8 GB with expandability via microSD. Side photo, only a 5 Mpx camera is present, but it is rather convincing. All, finally, is powered by a 1 830 mAh battery that holds the day if the user is not constantly glued to its smartphone.

Long proposed around 鈧130, Lumia 635 appears today to 鈧99.90 at Cdiscount. However, this model is eligible for two offers from Microsoft. Until December 31, 2015, the firm offers a gift card Windows Store with a value of 鈧25 for the purchase of a 930 Lumia, Lumia 830, Lumia 735, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 640, Lumia 635 or Lumia 535. Until June 30, it reimburses also 鈧30 for the purchase of a 635 Lumia through a BFF classic.

It is therefore possible, currently, to afford a Lumia 635 and 鈧25 applications for 鈧69.90. This concerns both the black 635 Lumia as the white Lumia 635 and the declensions of yellow or orange.

Sony’s boring new infusion presents Xperia Z4

Standard

Haven’t we met? Surprisingly, Sony has unveiled the new Xperia Z4 – and that looks similar to the predecessors to the confusion. Whether the Group thus creates the turn, is doubtful. By Christoph Fr枚hlich

Surprisingly, only the announcement came: Sony in the night of Monday without much fuss via press release the Xperia Z4, presented a new model of its flagship smartphones. And that is similar to its predecessors at first glance with its straight side edges and rounded corners striking. However, Sony this time waived the glass back and will instead – such as Samsung and Apple – on metal. So radically change of course doesn’t look like when the South Koreans but, the great revolution failure at Sony.

Large display, somewhat slimmer
The display has a diagonal of 5.2 inches, thus the screen is the same size as in the Z3 of the Xperia. The resolution is also 1920 x 1080 pixels (full HD). Some competitors use now even sharper qHD display, charge the battery but significantly stronger and hardly any noteworthy advantages. The decision for a full-HD display is therefore understandable, is the battery with a capacity of 2930 milliamp hours only in the midfield – runtime miracles are therefore not to be expected.

The Xperia Z4 is 6.9 millimeters thick (Xperia Z3: 7.4 mm) and weighs 144 grams. It is slightly thicker and heavier than the Galaxy S6. Also in the facilities, Sony is no accents: a Snapdragon 810 used, which is in nearly every top Smartphone in this year comes as a high end processor. Three gigabytes of memory to the page are him.

The internal space is 32 gigabytes. He can via microSD card up to 128 gigabytes – increase a feature that is unfortunately deleted when more and more top smartphones. , How the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S6 offer him around, looking for a fingerprint scanner in vain. As the operating system, the current Android 5.0 is installed lollipop.

Little new on the camera
Even with the camera not a lot has happened: the rear-view camera take photos with 20.7 mega pixels, the front camera has a wide angle lens with 5.1 megapixel resolution. There are improvements in the software. Which is a shame, because after all the Xperia Z3 had one of the best smartphone cameras of last year. But the competition hasn’t slept in: Samsung’s Galaxy S6 has Knipse the probably currently best smartphone, LG will introduce a new model with premium camera at the end of the month and also Apple is forking out end of year 6 successor, iPhone still a shovel. If the Xperia Z4 can keep then?

The Xperia Z4 comes in four colors: black, white, copper and Aqua-green. So far announced it but only for the Japanese market, where it will appear in the summer. There is no information about the international launch but still. The decision is not surprising, after all, Sony is in the Japanese home of one of the big players – and, for example, significantly more important than Samsung.

Still, Whether the Xperia Z4 international Sony keeps the great turning, is doubtful. Most recently the Smartphone business as a problem case emerged in the group. World market leader Samsung and emerging Chinese manufacturers such as Huawei undermine continuously Sony.

Huawei P8 Lite in the German unboxing & Hands-On video

Standard

The Huawei P8 Lite should come mid-May in Germany at a price of 鈧249 in the market. First smaller dealers have the Smartphone already in stock, at major retailers, it will take probably still one or two weeks until a good availability is guaranteed. That’s why are prices currently also something about the EIA. The scarce availability will be exploited as usual profitably. Who is waiting for something, can save the extra charge. Now also a first comprehensive German unboxing and Hands-On has surfaced video, which gives you a good view of it, what really awaits us with the 5-inch Smartphone. After the slightly delayed launch was to see not far from your Smartphone.

The Huawei P8 Lite should be presented with the Huawei P8 actually, but in the short term was replaced by a Huawei P8max. A few days later the 5-inch smartphone was unveiled then via press release. Unfortunately, there was then no way to look at it more on an event. Now, a first German unboxing and Hands-On emerging video which closer introduces the Smartphone, and deliverables on us. At a price of 鈧249, it makes a very good impression in any case and can shine apparently even with a good performance. Unfortunately the frame around the display Act but also quite broad. Therefore, the construction is not as compact as you would hope.

Technically, the Huawei P8 Lite in any case can convince. It offers a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The presentation seems to be pretty good, and the low resolution should benefit the battery life. Inside, a Kirin is 620 8-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory available are. Last you can extend if necessary via microSD card. The performance is apparently very well in combination with Android 5.0 lollipop. It is still the EMUI 3.1 to use something optimized. Otherwise, there is a 13-MP main camera, a 2200 mAh battery and LTE. If necessary, the unit can be used to the microSD slot with a second Nano-SIM card equipped and the dual-SIM-so used. It will be interesting in any case to see how to beat the Huawei P8 Lite in everyday life and whether it can convince in initial tests.

Siswoo Longbow C55 and European service center in the making

Standard

Did I mention it so recently, that Siswoo currently strongly impressed me, and also like to again repeat that. Siswoo Yes more or less showed up out of nowhere, but on the way to conquer the Chinaphone world by storm, as it is the case most once per year as a newcomer. But the Siswoo story no one-hit wonder seems to be, but of life.

After you threw now some very good devices on the market and has demonstrated that it is able to successfully cover all price classes, it now focuses in addition to the development of another and still more interesting devices increasingly on the expansion. Siswoo tends now quite a while in Europe and has also been a few partnerships. This one is serious, want it now with an announcement says, that customers in Europe will definitely enjoy Siswoo: Service Center will be opened. Here, defective equipment from Europe to be repaired without more or less cumbersome shipping is necessary after China. More details are not available unfortunately still us, it could be but that this service center be combined with further advantages for Europeans. Key words that come to mind here are local availability, warranty and return policy – just all what uniform will be awarded to us as a buyer in the EU legislators.

But that’s not the only news from Siswoo that there is today. Those who are generally more interested in cheaper smartphones, which is across may already be the Siswoo Longbow C50. The cheap 5-incher the currently for about 129 US dollars over the counter goes, offers a MT6735 SoC, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB memory and an 8 / 5 megapixel camera combo. Sounds like average food, but Siswoo is trying also not to convince, but rather a very good processing and optics with glass on both sides, as well as a generous battery capacity of 3, 000mAh (and they’re even real). Android 5.0 lollipop then completes the total package and have now quite successfully made the handset. Nevertheless, Siswoo wants to add the again and offer an alternative for those who would like to “something more”. The Smartphone will listen to the name Siswoo Longbow C55. The hardware will be probably quite similar, but there are more memory with 2 GB RAM and grows again at whopping 4 200mAh battery. Android let 5.1 lollipop and a frame made of real metal for a more noble look then again more interesting the Longbow C55.

Tell me: what do you think of Siswoo and their smartphones, as well as the one here has embarked on the path? Is the company on the right track or judging things bit too fast?

Samsung Galaxy S6: more than 10 million devices sold in a month

Standard

Some hate it, love the most 鈥 at least 10 million people, who now are bought the Galaxy S6 or the edge of the Galaxy S6 belong to the latter group. The Agency reported that Yonhap News, citing a high-level official at Samsung.

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 wants the world market leader again on the road to success come back, because the sales figures for Samsung smartphones went back last. However, although now a top Samsung aide to the news agency unofficially told Yonhap news that Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge now over 10 million devices sold, the Galaxy S6 just behind the sales of Galaxy S5 and S4 Galaxy seems to be – at least if we start a month as a period for the 10-million mark. Because the Galaxy S5 (11 million after 30 days) and the S4 27 days needed for this brand about 25 days.

That may surprise, eventually the Galaxy S5 was welcomed although mostly by the press, but in forums, success was often denied the Smartphone. So much better than often PrivatBank sold the Galaxy S5 or S6 of the Galaxy can not build on despite all praise the success of its predecessor. Ultimately, this is whining at a high level. Analysts assume that the demand will continue after Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge and over 50 million devices could be sold until the end of the year?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 offers a 5.1-inch super-AMOLED display with QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. It is powered by the OCTA-core processor of Exynos 7420. The chip consists of two quad-core processors with each 2.1 GHz cortex-A57 based and four cortex-A53 cores with the 1.5 GHz. The chip is 64-bit capable and together with 3 GB memory belongs currently to the strongest mobile chips at all. The internal memory of 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB cannot be expanded via microSD card, also the water resistance of the predecessor was not adopted. For the design and the material have been greatly improved with glass and metal. The current flagship of the South Koreans anyway, has to convince us.

Apple: iPad plus new display panel to get

Standard

The extra large iPad from Apple to get a new display panel, which not only better to touch responding and lends itself particularly well to force touch, but also is cheaper in production. The potential iPad plus but no longer appear in this year.

Plus iPad or iPad Pro may be equipped with a new display technology, as the Taiwanese economy magazine of ETNews reports. According to a recent report the touch panel of the next major iPad not like other panels should be based on a film of indium tin oxide, but on a special Nano wiring from Silver (AgNW), which should be flexible and improve at the same time touch sensitivity and accuracy of the screen. Apple have already requested according to business at LG display, Samsung display, display of Japan and other manufacturers appropriate test displays.

The new technology would benefit not only handwriting and drawings on the iPad. Also a special stylus and more pressure as he is Pro, for example, when the surface 3 used, would then superfluous, because pressures could theoretically be detected on each pin. Also the usage may the new Panel technology are considered another indication for, that Apple XXL-iPad will pay for a force-touch display which at varying touches are implemented in different actions. According to information by ETNews, the manufacture of panels AgNW-based one at that would be less expensive, because no rare and thus very costly materials such as Indium are used.

Great iPad to appear until 2016
We should not expect experience but therefore still long a cheap device from Apple since the manufacturer could theoretically still set a particularly resistant coating made of Sapphire Crystal. According to previous information iPad plus with a 12.9-inch to display be equipped, host an NFC chip, as well as an Apple A9 as well as offer a USB-C connector. According to the report by ETNews, the Tablet is no longer intended for a launch this, but only in the coming year.

LG G4 in the drop test

Standard

The LG G4 was officially launched a few weeks ago and will come on the market at the end of the month in Germany. The sale one day after the presentation has started in the country and thus one could be already a first impression of the Smartphone in some test reports, battery tests and camera comparisons. Now, also a drop test added in the Smartphone must survive a surcharge on an edge and directly on the display from a height of 150 cm. Basically, the Smartphone it truncates quite well. The slightly rounded display has also its drawbacks.

The LG G4 comes with a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display, which offers a resolution of 2560 x 1440 resolution and significantly improved the appearance and brightness when compared to its predecessor. In addition, the display is slightly curved, causing the reflections on the shiny surface should be reduced. Overall, representing outdoors seems to be very good. The display is very bright and well read. How is the Smartphone but fails in the drop test, is of course another question.

The tester had conducted a drop test with the LG G3 and suffered a total loss with a fall directly on the display. The new LG G4 performs something better. A fall from a height of about 150 cm on an edge ensures only minor damage to the frame. This is made of plastic and can seemingly well absorb the energy. Not fragmented in the display. It is something worse then when the direct fall on the display. Due to the rounded surface all four edges bounce in the first on the ground, making the glass shatters completely. Instead of just a breaking point it has three edges, for which cracks do basically. Also the back off and the battery falls out during the fall. But, on a damage to the glass, there seems to be no other restrictions. The Smartphone can normally turn on and operate.

The following video shows of course no scientific test, but just a simple drop test, which can vary depending on the situation, height, angle and soil.
