Tecno F7 Phantom A1

O dear, I never saw it coming that one day i would be writing about a techno smartphone. Because to be honest i ain’t no fan of tecno, a strong member of “say no to Chinco” …lol, But all thanks to Android, tecno is gathering a strong momentum in the  world of smartphones, especially within Africa and Asia. Nigeria , correct me If i’m wrong will be their biggest market because tecno is everywhere, it’s an affordable android smartphone.

Today It’s about the Tecno F7 Phantom A1 Tecno’s very best, I know the name sounds all kind of funny and tecnoish. Guess they wanted to use the name catch more attention more like hey, the latest smartphone Roll Royce is in town and it’s the phantom A1. But let’s put that aside you need to see the smartphone for yourself it’s off the hook from the design, camera, processor and the rest it’s amazing. Tecno isn’t smiling one bit.

PS4 vs Xbox One

xbox-one-vs-ps4-product-shots

 

The arrival of  Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One shows the continual rivalry still existing between the two, a battle to claim “I’m the supreme one, so surrender and bow before me” which i must say hasn’t quite worked for any of them. Though I must say it took sony a while before unveiling the console which i found annoying and made me get more anxious which i didn’t find funny.

Today it’s all about PS4 vs Xbox One review we will look at the price, specs, controllers, features and games. Finally we have  got the full details about the the two rivalry consoles, which is kind of fierce though.

PS4 vs Xbox One: Specs

The two consoles are similar in terms of their  hardware specifications, especially when it comes to the CPU and GPU which we’re going to take a look at.

Desktop2

Processor and graphics

AMD is the chip maker of choice for the PS4 and Xbox One. Each uses a SoC (System on a chip) which combines the CPU and GPU. The processor is an x86 64-bit chip with 8 ‘Jaguar’ cores and an estimated clock speed of 1.6GHz. 

On the surface, it looks as if the PS4 and Xbox One have the same AMD Radeon GPU. However, the PS4’s is more powerful with 1152 cores compared to the Xbox One’s 768 – 50 percent more, according to Anandtech.

Whether you are going  to be able to spot  the difference when the console is hooked up to your TV in your lounge is another question, but on paper and ongoing E3 2013 conference the PS4 is the more impressive.

The Birth of Nokia Lumia 520 and 720

Nokia MWC 2013 - 8 - Lumia 520 720 china mobile (1)

Finally, after much of  the screaming , hard and  tensed pushing  in the Nokia labor room,  mother Nokia Lumia gave birth to Nokia Lumia 520 and 720. Though the doctors failed to tell whether it was a male and female, well guess that’s left for us to find out….lol. And their arrival just expanded the Nokia Lumia family further. Let’s first start with the first born Nokia Lumia 520 though i’m sure 720 will object to that and claim to be the first born.

NOKIA LUMIA 520

Nokia-Lumia-520

Nokia Lumia 520 posing in different styles, got some class. The Nokia Lumia 520 is the baby of Nokia’s Lumia family, replacing the Lumia 510, i’m  sure Lumia 510 will be plotting it’s down fall…lol.

Design

One of the thumbs up of the Nokia Lumia 520 is the design. That’s a hallmark of Nokia’s Windows Phones: the appearance is interesting to look at, nice to hold and isn’t afraid to use any kind of  colour. Hence it Lumia 520 was born yellow and we have to say it’s a refreshing change from the sea of black, white or silver phones you find elsewhere, which is really becoming tiring .

Naturally the Lumia 520 isn’t that sophisticated in design as the other models higher up the range. No beautiful or spectacular edge design, but even at this budget end of the Lumia line, it looks nice to hold and of good build quality.

520-2

The soft curves of the back of the handset means it snuggles down securely into your hand. It measures 119.9 x 64 x 9.9mm and weighs 124g. Although not the slimmest phone around, there’s something cute about its dinky dimensions .

Hardware and Display

It comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at 1GHz, along with 512MB of RAM powering it. It isn’t the most powerful Windows Phone 8 device out there, but affordable and fits into a reasonable budget, it performs well enough. The Lumia 520 impresses with 8GB, as well as the option to expand by microSD, with cards up to 64GB supported. This is in addition to the 7GB of cloud storage you get from SkyDrive.

The End of 3D TV?

I’m a big fan of  the 3D TV, a brilliant innovation i must say and when watching the 3D TV with your 3D glasses it’s like it brings everything you’re seeing to life which is so breathtaking. Recently I and my Friend and his chic went window shopping at a mall and got to have an experince of the  84 inches LG 3D TV and i must say the experience was awesome, there was a time my friend’s chic had to like lean back a like while watching the 3D TV because it was like everything shown was too real, had to laugh at her that moment.

N0w there’s a gradual fading away of  the 3D TV as other great TV innovations are beginning to flood into the market.  Now the emphasis has shifted to high-resolution 4K displays, OLED, image quality, and “smart” functionality. In fact, Sony, Samsung, LG, Toshiba, and Panasonic have now decided to focus on actually improving their television technology. After three years of pushing and peddling 3D TVs that are virtually devoid of any actual technological innovation, this is rather refreshing.

THE 4K TV

3D TV has always come across as a fad fabricated by TV makers and movie makers to sell more TVs and Blu-ray discs. With box office takings and DVD sales flagging, and LCD HDTVs losing it hold in the market, TV makers and movie makers (understandably) decided that something had to change. And 3D was the perfect answer: It’s incredibly low-tech, but also a very strong difference. It took almost no effort on behalf of TV makers and production companies to make the jump to 3D, and yet consumers were forced to buy expensive, brand new TVs to enjoy the new content — or, if you couldn’t afford a 3D TV, you finally had a reason to go to the cinema which now run must of it’s movies on 3D.

With Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and LG all trying to ditch 3D for the new Hot TV innovations, i t would seem that the 3D fad is finally over. This isn’t to say that 3D TV won’t continue to rise and fall  for a little longer  – but it’s certainly lost its place as the the next big thing. following the footsteps of it’s predecessor, HDTV,  who took the world by storm, 3D simply failed to gain that much attention. It will now be replaced by 4K, 8K, OLED, and other technologies that actually push the envelope of content creation and consumption.

The Android smartphone industry is showing no signs of slowing down but instead are moving at a very fast pace causing a great concern for other smartphone manufacturers.

Still, there are a few phones that remain super noteworthy, and three of them are brand new devices. Here are our Avengers of  Android smartphones on the market right now and are in no particular order, but with taking various sizes, prices and unique features into account.

Hey! what’s happening people? how’s your day going? I’m sorry have been away for  a while just had some pressing issues to attend to and thank God that they’ve have been resolved. Today it’s all about the Blackberry Q5, which was unveiled last week in the just concluded Blackberry Live 2013. It was about time too as the Canadian firm launches its first affordable BlackBerry 10 device. Because I’m sure not everyone can afford the either the Z10 or Q10 and they will probably wanting to have a feel or experience of the Blackberry 10 operating system.

There’s no confirmation yet on which countries will be treated to the Q5, but BlackBerry is presenting it as an entry-level to mid-tier device aimed at emerging markets, which of course is their real target. What we do know is that it will be available in selected markets in  Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America, with expected availability beginning in July. so be expecting the cheapest Blackberry 10 to be hitting the market soon.
