Infinix Note 2 – Hands on Review

Infinix Note 2 – Hands on Review

Infinix has made a name for itself by coming up with good quality smartphones for a budget friendly audience. After a very successful Hot Note launch last year, the Chinese OEM has stepped up its game with this year’s device the Infinix Note 2 4G. The Note 2 4G comes with a 6 inch 720p HD IPS Display (245 ppi) which is big and bright, perfect for people who like to game or watch videos and movies on their phone. The big display also helps with surfing the web, without straining your eyes. Under the hood lies a MediaTek MT6753 64 bit Octa Core 1.3 GHz processor which is quite strong enough to play the most power hungry games such as Gods of Rome and Mortal Kombat X. The processor is supported with 2GB of RAM which helps a lot if you are a multi-tasker. The body is plastic through and through, but the device is built ergonomically very well (Thanks to the curved back), so it does not feel that it will slip from your hand at any point in time On the storage front the Note 2 comes with 16GB of internal memory with microSD card support up to 32GB. The highlight of the device is its massive 4040 mAh battery which easily lasts you 2 days of light usage and 1.5 days of moderate to heavy use. This is perfect for people who are away from a charging socket for long periods of time. Talking about charging as the device has Quick Charge support, so half and hour of charging will easily give you a day and the full charge takes just under 90 minutes, which is impressive considering the capacity of the battery. The device also has Ultra Power Saving Mode for those tricky times when you have to keep your phone running when the battery is just about to die. The Note 2 comes with a 13MP shooter at the back, which is an upgrade from the 8MP camera found in its predecessor. The camera to our surprise does take pretty good pictures, and with the help of HDR the colors pop up really well. On the front lies a 2MP shooter which comes in handy for selfie lovers. Check out the sample pictures below:     Finally lets talk about the software, the Infinix Note 2 4G runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and is upgrade-able to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. On the top of it is Infinix’s very own XUI skin, which brings with it a couple of really cool features, such as OTG support, Double Tap to Wake up display, Hand Gesture Commands and...

One Plus 3 vs Galaxy S7 Edge – Speed and Performance test comparison [Video]

One Plus 3 vs Galaxy S7 Edge – Speed and Performance test comparison [Video]

  The One Plus 3 seems to be the talk of the town these days mainly because of two things: its sleek simplistic design and the massive 6GB RAM. Question is will it be enough to stand toe-to-toe with the Samsung S7 Edge? We’ll let you be the judge after watching the video.   Our friends at C4ETech have done a comparison with the Samsung GALAXY Edge 7 and the results look really impressive. One thing to be noted here is that the One Plus 3 by default comes with a battery optimization feature that restricts the number of apps running in the background. Due to this, the device wasn’t able to fully utilize all the power that it actually possesses. In order to fix this, XDA had come up with a small fix that enables you to fully utilize the phone’s large memory. Even though XDA have claimed that this might compromise the phone’s battery, but from what we have seen so far, that doesn’t seem to be the case. For those of you who are lucky enough to get your hands on this beast, we would like to hear what you guys think about the One Plus 3 with and without the RAM fix. Do share your thoughts with us in the comments below....

The all new Moto Z, Moto Z Force and Moto Mods

The all new Moto Z, Moto Z Force and Moto Mods

Modular devices seem to be the talk of the town these days. We have already talked about the LG G5 and the much anticipated Project Ara along with the recently announced BLOCKS which also happens to be the world’s first modular smartwatch. Not the ones to be left behind, Lenovo have also announced their new range of modular devices – The Moto Z and the Moto Z Force at the recently concluded Lenovo Tech World event in San Francisco. The company also announced a vast collection of Moto Mods that get attached to the back of devices using powerful electronic magnets. Let us now take a closer look at both the devices along with the Mods: Moto Z The Moto Z sports a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 display and is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB and 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Motorola Moto Z packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The device runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box and is powered by a 2600mAh non removable battery. It measures 153.30 x 75.30 x 5.20 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 136.00 grams. The Motorola Moto Z is a single SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope. The one thing missing from both these devices is your traditional 3.5mm headphone jacks that have been replaced by a standalone USB type C to 3.5mm connector which comes with the phones. The removal of the 3.5mm headphone jacks makes the Moto Z one of the thinnest looking Android devices ever made. Moto Z Force The company also announced a slightly more rugged variant of the Moto Z called the Moto Z force which comes with Motorola’s Moto ShatterShield technology for its display, which the company says will not crack or shatter. It is nearly identical otherwise, except for the the larger 3500mAh battery, which is rated to provide up to 40 hours of battery life. With TurboPower charging, it is said to provide 15 hours of battery life in just a 15-minute charge. It also bears a 21-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and laser auto focus along with a 5MP front shooter.
