Samsung Galaxy J5: A Strong Substitute of the Moto G4

With standard screen brightness and a SIM-free cost of £160, Samsung Galaxy J5 has proved itself the second longest lasting smartphone of 2016. With its cost-effective feature, this brand-new budget handset of Samsung is challenging other budget smartphones like Moto G 4th Gen easily.

Design:
The J5 compromises in many areas like performance and entire build quality for keeping the price low. For instance, its plastic frame isn’t waterproof and its glossy finish doesn’t look do good compared to the metal frames. However, most importantly, the J5 is well-made and its matt cover is nicer than the grooved finish on the Moto G4. The J5’s slim dimensions make it really easy-to-hold.samsung-galaxy-j5 Display:
The J5 is the cheapest Samsung phone that features 5-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display. Albeit, the Moto G4’s screen is pretty good but it can’t match the J5’s display’s vibrancy. With its 100% perfect black, SRGB colour gamut coverage and contrast ratio, the picture looks superb on the J5.

Performance:
The J5 is definitely not the fastest smartphone because it can’t compete with other budget smartphones with its Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor alongside 1.5GB of RAM. But in Geekbench 3, the J5 has put the Moto G4 behind in the single core and multicore test. Albeit Samsung’s Android 5.1.1 based TouchWiz interface is relatively responsive and smooth, but the Moto G also proved to be faster at loading games or web browsing.moto_g4
Camera:
Like many other budget smartphones, the J5 features a 13MP rear camera which is found quite temperamental relying on the lighting conditions. Surprisingly, there’s no HDR mode for which resulting pictures aren’t very satisfactory. However, colour is bright if the indoor photography is done.

Conclusion:
Albeit the J5 has many issues, it has enough speed to help you do your daily mobile tasks. A slight backlog is the Moto G4 users have already the benefit of having an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is not possible for the J5 users presently. So, except the battery life or screen, the Moto G4 beats the J5 everywhere. One backlog is that the Moto G4 is not water-resistant, albeit it features a 5.5-inch full HD display.

Finally, it’s up to you which smartphone you will choose. If you want a handy set with good battery life and screen quality, then the J5 is good for you. But if you want a budget phone with lots of good features, then you should definitely opt for the Moto G4.

Nexus 5X vs. Google Pixel: Comparing the Key Differences

Google has dumped the Nexus brand and replaced it with all-new Pixel phones. But will you upgrade your phone to the new Google Pixel or have the older Nexus 5X? Just have a look at the comparison of the key differences between the Nexus 5X and Google Pixel:

Price:
The lesser expensive and smaller Google Pixel is priced at £599 for the 32GB option and you can get the 128GB option at only £699. Besides, the Nexus 5X comes under £200 for the 16GB model. So, will it be worth pay more than double for the all-new Pixel?google-pixel

Design & Build:
The Pixel is 8.5mm and weighs 143g in comparison with 7.9mm Nexus 5X which weighs 136g. The weight difference causes due to the glass and metal design of the Pixel. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X features the plastic build. The new Pixel is only IP53 rated, i.e. splash resistant, whereas the Nexus 5X is not at all.

Specifications & Hardware:
In comparison with the Nexus 5X, the Pixel is smaller with its 5-inch screen. The resolution is full HD 1080×1920 pixels on both phones. The Pixel features AMOLED panel technology which offers punchier colours, although some like the 5X’s more natural look.
In terms of storage and processor, the Pixel wins. It has 4GB of RAM and the latest Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, which outdated the combination of 2GB of RAM and Snapdragon 808 processor of the Nexus 5X.
The Pixel offers a standard 32GB option and 128GB storage options, although the storage can’t be upped by a microSD card slot. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X provides just 16 or 32GB capabilities. Both smartphones offer the same connectivity options like NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 and dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi. However, the latest Pixel has Cat 9 LTE in comparison with Cat 6. Both smartphones have rear-mounted fingerprint scanners; however, the Pixel’s is really handy. Even, both have a USB-C connector; however, the Pixel is backed by a larger 2770mAh battery and also features fast wireless charging with v3.0.
Both smartphones have the same 12MP rear camera, dual-tone flash, 1.55µm pixels, 1/2.3 in sensor and f/2.0 aperture; although the Pixel also has a phase detection auto focus.
Although the Pixel ranks higher on DxO, the Nexus 5X also offers good quality photos and videos more than sufficient. In terms of the front-facing cam, the Pixel is a winner with its 8MP sensor, compared to the 5X’s 5MP sensor.5x-nexus

Software:
The Pixel comes with the latest Android 7.1 Nougat OS, alongside new navigation buttons, new-look home screen and Google tab and the built-in Google Assistant also. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X is up-gradable to Android 7.0 Nougat and it’s uncertain when it’ll receive a 7.1 upgrade.

Conclusion:
Thus, you can see that the Google Pixel outclasses the Nexus 5X in many areas. But both phones are worth buy. So, which one will you pick for you? Let us know in comments.

Rumour: Ending of OnePlus 3 & Incoming of OnePlus 3 Plus

According to a new report, OnePlus is going to discontinue the production of the OnePlus 3, and at the same time create an upgraded sequel which could be named as the OnePlus 3 Plus or OnePlus 3S. That is in accordance with the GizmoChina, which indicates an unnamed supply chain source in a new report published on 12th October 2016.

It seems that OnePlus is struggling continuously for getting its hands on ample quantities of AMOLED displays, and presently is considering dismissing the OnePlus 3 for a completely new model which utilises the LCD panels.
In addition, the all-new handset is reportedly decided to feature a totally newer processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip which is 10% faster than its predecessor. In fact, the new Daydream Virtual Reality Platform of Google is also supported by this chip and now appeared inside the new Google Pixel devices.
It is really unfortunate that we cannot verify the data incorporated in this new report, and thus you need to consider this most recent leak with the due alert. If we find anything new from the side of OnePlus, we will definitely inform you by our article post.

oneplus3

The OnePlus 3 is the 4th smartphone of the company and was unveiled on 14th June 2016. The phone boasts a Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM, as well as some additional features such as quick-charging, NFC, neither of which were incorporated with the OnePlus 2.

The OnePlus 3 was important to be the first ever OnePlus smartphone which was not the part of an invitation-only buying scheme, a system which was utilised for earlier phones for regulating the supply and demand.

The OnePlus 3 has already been given a 4.5/5-star score in the review, appreciating its good-quality design, superb value, excellent heat handling and a strong camera. So, now we need to wait to get a confirmation of what all the rumours are saying.

Additionally, Samsung proclaims for having lessened the power consumption of different elements of the Note 7’s Super AMOLED screen like DDI (Display Driver IC), which consumes a huge amount of the processor, other sensors, and power.
To reduce power consumption, Samsung has utilised a technology which allows users for turning on or off the Always on Display. The Note 7’s accelerometer, RGB light sensors, and proximity decides if the Always on Display requires being turned on or off. For example, if the Note 7 senses that the device is in the pocket, the feature will get disabled.

New Samsung Galaxy Note 6/7: Release Date Rumoured to be in August First Week

Good news for Samsung smartphone lovers! The company is planning for launching its next flagship, i.e. a new Note smartphone with its Galaxy Note 5 now almost 1 year old. Reasonably, this forthcoming mobile phone must be called Galaxy Note 6, though rumours have it that the smartphone giant Samsung even call it Galaxy Note 7 – apparently in order to guarantee customers that the latest Note smartphone is from the similar Samsung phones’ generation as the Galaxy S7 family unveiled prior this year, and is not connected to the series of Galaxy S6 from the year 2015.

It was heard last month that the upcoming generation of Galaxy Note 6 (or Note 7) could be launched in the starting week of August. At present the report of Evan Blass, i.e. @evleaks says that the release event of the handset is almost just 2 months away. This implies that we must expect Samsung to declare the new Note smartphone officially in the very first week of the month August. Generally, it is already known by Evan Blass what he is speaking about, so people are enough confident regarding this.

Samsung Note 6 Rumour Image

It is also mentioned by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) that there will be just one new Galaxy Note smartphone being released in August, so it can be guessed that people won’t see a variant with a regular display and another one with a curved screen any more. If we go with the latest leaked descriptions, the upcoming Galaxy Note will come with curved edges on the front and back; therefore probably will be similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge handset to some extent.

Possibly, Galaxy Note 6/7 will come with a dual rear camera which is another interesting rumour. This camera will be similar to exactly the Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, depending on the market, the next-gen Note could provide an Exynos 8890 or a Snapdragon 823 processor, up to 6 GB of RAM and a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen. So, people must be excited for its launch which is going to happen on August first week.

World’s first smartphone with 6GB RAM is now official

Android was the first one to claim outrageously pixel dense displays, super high megapixel camera, enormous screen real estates and deca core processors. When it comes to the performance, Android game is one of the numbers. This is not surprising with so many rivals lurking around the corner for better hardware.

Vivo announced its first ever 6GB phone, XPlay 5 in Beijing last night only. This smartphone has more memory than the one available with most of the laptops in use currently. Vivo XPlay 5 has a 5.43 inch Quad HD display, is an AMOLED make and curves to both the sides just like the Galaxy S7 Edge, which has specially crafted software allowing for edge functionality.

Vivo-XPlay-5-6GB-RAM

This smartphone is made up using the aluminum magnesium alloy, and is provided with ergonomic curves at the back sides to make it easy to grab it on your palm. It is powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset with extremely fast, UFS 2.0 storage. The Chinese giant claims that this handset is using a custom liquid cooling system to keep the chipset cool and giving its best performance ever. This handset promises that this time the performance of this smartphone will not affected by overheating.

Vivo has packed this phone with a 16MP rear camera on the back for clicking better quality images. This camera is Sony’s IMX298 main camera with a dual tone LED flash for better quality images in low light conditions. It is provided with the phase detection auto focus and electronic image stabilization. The Xplay 5 phone is currently available on pre-order though only the 4/128GB options are available for the time being.
