Google is said to break the barriers of spotty signal with its wireless service, ASUS will bring you 7-day battery life and Saygus is ready launch its impressive phone.
Rumors of Google’s wireless services are all the hype right now. We don’t know all the news quite yet, but one of the most concrete details is that the service will be backed by both Sprint and T-Mobile networks.
How will this work? Will you be able to choose which carrier you want? Can you swap over to the other one when you want? These are some of the most asked questions regarding the matter, and now we may have an answer.
A new rumor coming from The Wall Street Journal claims Google is developing a technology that will allow the phone to automatically switch between carriers. This would be based on which carrier has the best signal at any given place or time.
Opinion: If this is true, this would likely be a game-changer in the industry. We know of other prepaid wireless service providers that work with multiple carriers, but none of them switch to and from carriers. This is a whole other level of making sure you have signal wherever you go.
ASUS has high hopes to break through the smartphone market with the affordable ZenFone 2, but they are not only focusing on their phone market share. ASUS is aiming very high in terms of wearables.
ASUS’ very own Jonney Shih said that the company is aiming to bring 7-day battery life to the next-generation smart watch. This would be accomplished by using a simplified chip and tinkering with the software.
“The ZenWatch is defined by us as a companion to a smartphone, and we think it still has a lot of room for improvement. As a companion device, its central processing unit and operating system should be more simplified than the current version, so that I can use it for up to seven days on one charge, rather than for just two days.” -Jonney Shih
Opinion: 7 days of battery life is simply unheard of, but I believe it could be done with enough tinkering. I also believe it would be much easier if manufacturers stopped being so obsessed with LCD displays on a smart watch.
The Saygus V2 was one of the most exciting smartphones at CES 2015. Yes, the brand may be unknown, but the phone really has everything any smartphone geek can dream of. Ever wanted a spec in a device? The Saygus V2 has it. You can learn all about it in our Saygus V2 hands-on post.
Today we are focusing on something else – the device’s launch. Saygus has just sent us a note telling us the device will go on sale this week! Here’s how it will work: you have to register to pre-order before Thursday at 12:00 PM. You must register to pre-order!
If you already did, simply wait until after Thursday at 12 PM. Saygus will announce the actual purchase times and details via Twitter. It will cost you “under $600”, so at least you know what you are signing up for.
Opinion: The price is not set very affordable, but do remember this phone literally has it all. It is one hell of a beast!
