Where you keeping away from the internet world this weekend? It was Mother’s Day, after all. You probably want to catch up on the hottest techie news!
Huawei has released a couple of new devices in India. They may not be the phones of your dreams, but come with a price tag that will have many Indian tech geeks considering as a low-end alternative to other expensive gadgets. They are the Huawei Honor 4C and Honor Bee.
The Honor 4C is the better of the two, carrying a 5-inch 720p display, a Kirin 620 1.2 GHz octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 13/5 MP cameras, a 2550 mAh battery and dual SIM compatibility. All for just Rs. 8999, which equals to about $141 USD.
Meanwhile, the Honor Bee serves the low-end market with an even more affordable handset. It packs a 4.5-inch 854x480p display, a quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, 8/2 MP cameras and a 1730 mAh battery. All for just Rs. 4999, which equals to a mere $78 USD.
Opinion: Both devices are available exclusively through Flipkart, so you should look into getting one of these if you need a phone for a casual user. It would really be a great gift for mom, or the kids.
Were you impressed by the 3.98 mm thin Vivo X5 at CES? Fasten your seat belts, because the same manufacturer is ready to take things to the next level. The company’s Weibo account recently revealed they will be announcing the Vivo X5 Pro on Wednesday, May 13th.
The good news doesn’t end there, though. We have caught a glimpse at a leak that reveals the device’s specs and the phone is looking like quite the winner. Specs are said to include a 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor (possibly the Snapdragon 615), 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 13/5 MP cameras and a massive 4150 mAh battery.
Opinion: Remember these specs are still rumors, so be sure to stay tuned for Wednesday, when we can tell you the official details on this phone. That battery life, though!
Those of you who have been experiencing touch screen issues on your OnePlus One will be glad to learn the manufacturer is all over this case. The Chinese startup has announced they are investigating the issue and working very closely with Synaptics to release a firmware fix.
They also stress that you can always contact their support team if you would rather not wait. They may replace it for you, or simply have you send it in to be fixed. Thank the geek gods for warranties!
Opinion: I am actually very impatient with issues like these, which is one of the main reasons why I am still not using a OnePlus One. The phone is amazing, but I would rather not have to deal with small issues liek these, which end up making a huge impact on your experience.
Sega is a long time game developer. Just like it has owned the industry, it has also gone through its low times. The company has decided it’s about time to make some changes and they have decided to keep their standards high in order to bring gamers the best of experiences.
The popular game developer has announced they will be removing some of their Android and iOS games from all app stores soon, as they no longer meet their quality standards. Some may return updated, some may not. Regardless, those who have purchased the games already can keep on playing them and even re-download them after being taken down.
Opinion: There is no question some of these games don’t work that well on mobile. Some of them weren’t even developed to work on smartphones! Though there are some Sega games we would certainly miss, we do believe this is the best move for a forward-moving company. Let’s just hope Sonic sticks around!
