We've all seen the battle of budget phones. With the start of the entire trend of "high-end specs with budget price" type of phones earlier this year. Since then, we've seen quite a number of phones which are direct competitors in this said trending market.
There comes a time where people were very happy with cases on their phones. I admit that I was one of them too, until sometime during December of 2012, when I was using my Galaxy Nexus without any cases at all. Partly this is due to the fact that there aren't much cases to choose from and also the phone is nicely shaped with the curve, which I really appreciate its design.
Before we begin getting down into the review, here's a little breakdown on what's the excitement about the new HTC One. The previous One was a trendsetter with its metal body build, and was a very strong contender of the 'social media-centric' device with the UltraPixel camera.
Here's what's up with Samsung these days. They released two smartwatches that didn't run on Android - the previously-reviewed Gear Fit runs on Real Time OS, and the Gear 2 runs on Tizen. Happened a few days ago, the original Samsung Galaxy Gear got an update and changed it to run on Tizen too, which technically renamed the Samsung Galaxy Gear to just the Samsung Gear.
The first time when I saw the Gear Fit during Samsung's Galaxy S5 launch in Malaysia nearly two months ago, it came to mine that hey - the curved screen is definitely something special! Touch screen with a Super AMOLED display, a heart rate sensor, and also able to vibrate when notifications come in? On paper, that makes the Gear Fit sounds like a jack-of-all-trades.
Today, consumers are constantly facing a dilemma – do I need a tablet, or my smartphone is enough? I personally am facing this dilemma, where I think that something like a 7-inch tablet would be a nice complement to my Nexus 4. Asus however, took the merging step and made the PadFone. After few iterations, we get to take a look at how far Asus had come with their PadFone line of devices.
