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....

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Scratch, Burn and Bend Test – [Video]

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Scratch, Burn and Bend Test – [Video]

    We’ve seen a lot of nasty videos where your favorite smartphone either has to go through some of the most rigorous methods of testing so that you can prevent the same damage happening to your own device. Well its now time to put the Sony Xperia 5 Premium Sony’s flagship device of 2015 under the ultimate scratch, burn and bend test and see how this beautiful device fairs towards the end. Some of the scenes in the video are a bit hard to watch for sensitive viewers so do watch it at your own risk. Well take a look at the video below and see for yourself 😀     Key Extracts from the Video The camera lens seems easily scratchable, likely due to it being a plastic lens. This is an unfortunate trait for a device being marketed premium, and is especially troubling from a company who prides itself on great camera performance. The glass panels on the front and rear hold up to keys and knives just fine, though. The metal sides of the device will suffer light wear and tear from keys and coins. The phone can bend, and bad. But as long as it’s not in your back pocket when you go to sit down it should be fine.   So for those of you who are planning to get their hands on Sony’s elegant device, you better keep these few things in mind. Cheers...

The ultimate Samsung GALAXY S5 Drop Test. How do you think it fared? – [Video]

The ultimate Samsung GALAXY S5 Drop Test. How do you think it fared? – [Video]

By now we all know that no matter how expensive, good looking or relatively new they actually are, smartphones these days HAVE to go through some sort of rigorous testing even after they have been released. With that said, even though the Samsung GALAXY S5 hasn’t seen the light of day as yet, (the device is officially rolling out on April 11th) the guys at Tech Smartt have already put the device to the ultimate test. Let’s see how Samsung’s flagship device of 2014 fares against a series of drop tests and also after being rolled over by an Audi Q7. For all you faint hearted people out there let this be a prior warning before you look since you may or may not exactly like what you’ll see so do watch this video at your own risk. GOOD LUCK !! 😀       After going through all the drop tests as well as being run over by an SUV, we must say that the GALAXY S5 is most certainly one of the most physically durable devices out there and even though some of you might still wonder how on earth is this even possible with it’s plastic body and all but after going through all this, it is safe to say that the device is most certainly one of the toughest nuts to crack. If you’re planning of buying a new device which not only looks elegant but at the same time is durable as well, then the S5 should be your numero uno choice. The studies also prove that the S5’s body and the screen are both much more sturdier than its predecessor the GALAXY S4 so that should be another plus point as well. So what did guys make of the rigorous pain that the device had to go through? Was it helpful in changing your (mis)perception about the plastic body? We would like to hear your thoughts as well so do share a word or two in the comments section below. Cheers...

AllCast App – Streaming Content was never this easy

AllCast App – Streaming Content was never this easy

Streaming content seamlessly on a bigger screen has been the wish of alot of people but sadly, a few hiccups were found on the way. They were more or less gone when Google introduced to the world to Chromecast.  A device that could enable even a non smart TV to stream content on it. Google later put a lock on third party apps for the device, which was sad to see. Due to this a lot of developers were left hanging. Then Google did something miraculous, they released the official API, giving developers a rope to hold on too. One such developer Koushik Dutta used this to develop his very own version of the All Share app. The app lets you stream content to Xbox, Roku Box, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV’s or in other words any DLNA – capable device. the best part is that you DO NOT need to ROOT your device. The app is still under beta mode but it works really well, the current beta version is 7 Koushik though has joked about the beta app to “self destruct” on December 1st. So either the app will be taken down from the server or we might see a final version, either way if you want to try this app, then head over to the link provided below. Download Link: ...

Cyanogen Inc. to bag out three HUGE surprises – AirPlay Mirroring, CM11, New OEM Partner

Cyanogen Inc. has started the day with some amazing news, three of them actually on their Google+ account. A  new apk, news for their upcoming Custom ROM and a teaser that has made everybody start guessing. Get the whole low down below: Cyanogen Inc. Joins Hands with a Mystery Partner: According to sources Cyanogen has confirmed that they have a new hardware partner. Meaning a OEM running a CM ROM out of the box. This is great news for the developer community as we have all, known and loved the customization possibilities the CM ROMs provide. They were not willing to give any more hints as to who the new partner is, but according to rumors there is a high chance it could be Oppo, as they already have a device that comes with CM ROM out of the box, the Oppo N1. CyanogenMod (CM) 11 in Final Stages:   Cyanogen Inc. has confirmed that their new CM 11 ROM is under final stages and will be available as a nightly very soon. The post on Google+ was: We are in the final preparation stages for CM 11 nightlies as well – you crackflashers will have something to play with soon. For those who do not know CM 11 is based on the all new Android 4.4 KitKat OS. If you want to have a feel of it there is an unofficial CM11 build that you can try out. Be warned though it is a bit buggy. AirPlay Mirroring and Screen Recording Test apk:   The developers at Cyanogen Inc. have been busy building ROMs and apks. Recently they have come out with a test version of a screen recording app and AirPlay Mirroring which is similar to Miracast found on most high end devices. This basically helps you display whatever you are seeing on your device on a bigger screen, when connected on the same wireless network. Even though the apk is still in beta testing stage, you can have a crack at it from the download link below. The screen recording function will be good for people who like to make tutorial videos or How to’s for people who need the occasional help. Their official post stated: To use screen recording, it is very similar to screenshots. Instead of volume down + power (screenshot), press volume up + power. A notification will pop up that notifies you that your screen is being recorded. You can enable showing touches, and also stop the recordings. Recordings are saved to /sdcard/MirrorRecordings. To use airplay mirroring, go into Settings, displays, Wireless Displays. It will scan for airplay devices. Pick one, and it will mirror your screen....
