Mlais M7 Smartphone Review

Mobile/Smart Phones by stefan @ 2015-06-28 read/post comments()

The Mlais M7 smartphone has given us an overall pleasant experience thanks to its high-quality build and system performance. Speaking about the performance, the MT6752 SoC is able to deliver quite a bit especially when it is paired with HD displays so we were able to score over 47K in AnTuTu. The total of 3GB of RAM helps running multiple applications while the included 16GB of internal storage should be enough for most people to install their favorite applications without the need to install an extra microSDHC card, at least in the first stage. The fingerprint sensor works decent and we were not able to fool it by trying other fingerprints in order to unlock the device, which is impressive. read more

Matias Tactile Pro 4 Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2015-06-23 read/post comments()

The Keyboard Company has just started to bring in the Matias Tactile Pro and has lots of stock for potential enthusiast buyers. The newer v4 version is featuring re-engineered Matias Click switches compared to v3 and are meant to eliminate the ringing sound of the previous Fukka. Be warned that these are not designed to be silent and their sound is similar to a regular typewriter; however, the typing experience is unique and the product is recommended to people which write a lot of documents or get to work in accounting / do a lot of spreadsheet work. We would not recommend it for gaming purposes (the Quiet Pro is more suitable for that). read more

Blackview Zeta Smartphone Review

Mobile/Smart Phones by stefan @ 2015-06-19 read/post comments()

Blackview has taken a step ahead regarding their low-end smartphone line by releasing the Zeta which is available in multiple colors so the younger people with budget restrictions would be more attracted to it. We see it as a worthy successor of the Breeze, by sporting a friendlier look and the processor has been upgraded now to the octa-core MT6592 but at 1.4GHz in order to save battery life. Also, Zeta is equipped with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which features a single partition. The cameras though are not stellar and while the manufacturer displays on the packaging the interpolated values, we are really dealing with a 2MP sensor for selfies and one 5MP sensor for the… read more

Lexar JumpDrive M20 Mobile USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2015-06-15 read/post comments()

The last USB 3.0 OTG flash drives we have tested were sporting a smaller footprint and also needed extra protective covers for avoiding damages to their connectors. In this case, the chassis is indeed bigger but no extra accessories are needed, while we can switch from one interface to another just by working with the slider. read more

Razer Seiren Elite USB Digital Microphone Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2015-06-13 read/post comments()

Thanks to the three 14mm condenser capsules, Seiren can function in four different modes: cardioid, stereo, omnidirectional or bidirectional, in order to accommodate different recording environments. Even if you do not use it in a professional environment, it should bring a lot of benefit to people which record streams daily/weekly thanks to the added clarity but also to the ones which talk a lot on Skype or any other audio/video conference programs. Talking again about non-professional scene, the device is really easy to set up and should not need any extra skills given you read the supplied manual and install Synapse software in a matter of minutes. read more
