ZTE Grand X 4 Smartphone Evaluation

We have just posted our review of the ZTE Grand X 4 Smartphone. This is an Android 6.0.1 device that packs in a very large battery into a device with mainstream specifications. While it's not going to break any benchmark records, it's a solid device that is worth a look if you want a lot of features on a decent device that won't break the bank - or be required to be tethered to a charger all day. Take a look at our review for all the little details.

The ZTE Grand X 4 is a 5.5-inch device that packs an "HD" 720p display, a rear 13MP camera, 5MP front camera, 1080p video recording and a very solid 3,140mAh battery. Under the hood is a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor that is fed by 2GB of RAM and has an internal storage capacity of 16GB. The specifications won’t melt you mind, but with the enormous battery and 720p screen, the battery life should be impressive.

Moto G5

Motorola (Lenovo) has released their new G5 phone which offers high end features for less the $300 with no contract. There are more and more great options for smartphones that don't cost an arm and a leg but the new G5 is taking things to a new level. The Verge takes a closer look at the G5 and explains why it's a tough value to beat.

The lesson of Lenovo’s new Moto G5 Plus is simple: cheap smartphones have no business feeling cheap anymore. The "below this price, you get a lackluster device" line that once existed has officially evaporated when you can buy a phone for as little as $229 with a metal build, phenomenal display, great performance, and satisfactory battery life. And best of all, it’s a phone that you can take to any major carrier, and it’ll just work. Very few other bargain phones can offer the same convenience.

Twitter looking at paid memberships

In an attempt to bring in some extra revenue, Twitter has been exploring a paid subscription model to offer more features to users for a monthly fee. Right now the details on what you'd get for a monthly fee are pretty vague as Twitter is polling users but it sounds like at this point free users won't be losing any features. As more and more users make the move from Twitter to other social media platforms rolling out a paid service is going to be a tricky task for Twitter. BBC has the full story.

The micro-blogging service, which has struggled to grow its user base in recent years, is carrying out surveys to “assess interest” in the idea.

Paying members would get access to an enhanced version of Tweetdeck, Twitter’s souped-up interface that offers more functionality than Twitter.com.

The company has not made any indication it is considering charging regular users of the service.

Apple's new products

Apple announced some new products to the world on Tuesday, none of which got people as excited as they once were, but now users have a few new options. Biggest highlight of course was an updated iPad, as well as a couple new iPhone models (new colors). Other than that the other announcements were pretty minor and didn't really get anyone too exited. Gizmodo has a list of all the new Apple announcements.

It’s been an exceedingly busy morning for Apple. As anticipated, the company earlier today released a range of new devices and accessories; and while the rumored 10.5-inch iPad didn’t make an appearance, there’s still a whole a lot to like about everything Apple introduced just a few short hours ago.

To help you make sense out of everything, we’ve put together a short but sweet list which highlights every new item that hit Apple’s online store earlier this morning. Whether you’re curious about the company’s new iPad models or the company’s new video editing app, we’ve got you covered.

What happened to tablet sales?

Tablet sales have been dropping for the past couple years and even though companies refresh their offerings the tablet market keeps getting softer. There are a few ideas as to why this is happening and the lack of usage (which prolongs life of the devices) is one them. Regardless of the reasons, the announcements of new tablets haven't been getting the fanfare they once did. TechCrunch has the full story.

In the past month, both Apple and Samsung have refreshed their flagship tablets for the first time since 2014. A lot has changed in the space in the intervening years — mostly for the worse, as overall sales have continued to slip. In Q4 of last year, IDC reported that shipments had dropped 20 percent, year over year, while Strategic Analytics has the number at half that.

There’s room for debate as far as precisely how down the overall market is (not to mention what precisely qualifies a device as a tablet), but there seems to at least be a consensus that early predictions of the tablet space eclipsing PCs missed the mark. The space has suffered for a variety of reasons. Among them, the fact that users simply aren’t refreshing tablets at a rate many manufacturers no doubt predicted.

I Could Actually Be Good at Darts Now

I'm not all that good at darts. I'm pretty solid - meaning I can usually hit the board, but other than that, it's pretty rough. Now there is a custom dart board that can track a dart through the air and perfectly position itself for a bulls-eye everytime. 

ARM Steps up their Performance Game

There's been a lot of talk lately about the AMD Ryzen CPU, but ARM doesn't want to be discounted out of the fight just yet. They are working hard to step up their performance game to keep up with Intel and AMD - but at the same time they are committed to excellent battery life and excellent efficiency. ARM has come a long, long way and once they enter the desktop CPU market, things are going to get really interesting.

The improvements increase the possibility of Apple switching over to ARM architecture on its Macs. That hasn’t happened yet as Intel’s mainstream Core chips are significantly faster than current ARM processors. Like other chipmakers, Apple licenses ARM architecture, which it already uses in iPhones, iPads, and other devices.

New iPad is Thick and Heavy

In a world of whiney consumers, some days you just can't win. Apple has just announced their latest iPad - which costs a mere $329. Sounds like a winner right? Not if you like ultra-thin and light devices. This new iPad is thicker and heavier than the iPad Air 2, but let's get real. It's 1.5mm thicker and a mere 30 grams heavier. That's not much considering you get a very nice iPad out of the deal.

In relative terms, this is a pretty substantial change. The new iPad is more than 20% thicker than the iPad Air 2 although in absolute terms, it’s important to note we are still talking about millimetre differences here. An increase of 1.5mm is small but it will definitely be noticeable in the hand if you have handled both tablets before. At 9.7 inches, the weight increase of 0.07lbs or about 30 grams is probably not discernible in practice.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Overclocking x2

The AMD Ryzen is now available in stores and there are some good things coming from AMD this time around. While it's not an absolute overclocking beast, it still offers some solid performance gains - on air, as well as liquid. Take a look below and see how they are pushing this CPU and yet it remains stable.


Super Mario Run Coming to Android This Week

Super Mario Run has been a big hit on iOS and it is coming to Android on March 23 - this week. If you've been waiting to get your hands on this $9.99 game, the time is coming closer.
