Alpha-3

Update: Thanks to all you wonderful people who entered. The winners have been announced and contacted. It was highly successful and because of this we will be launching another competition very soon!

Alcatel has been dabbling in the cell phone market for many a year and up till now they were more known for lower-end yet indisputably reliable phones. The Idol Alpha thrusts Alcatel into the already heated battle of the smartphone war (read our full review here).

We think it is a great find, especially for its price. Following the success of our previous competition, we’ve decided to give away two of the Alcatel flagships to our readers (see the rules below), in partnership with Alcatel SA. (more…)

Samsung introduces new ‘Level’ headphones – and it looks familiar

Samsung Level

Yesterday, Samsung announced that their new line of headphones, called Level, are now available in the US. And while we’re sure they’re pretty fancy and will grab the attention of many, we can’t help but feel like we’ve seen this before – in the form of Apple’s Beats.

From the short, 30-second advert the company released on YouTube, one can easily see that Samsung is targeting the same demographic as Beats.

Young, hip and fashion forward people are the group Samsung is going for – especially if the ridiculously good looking models in the ad is anything to go by.

But the comparison to Beats goes further than simply the look. Samsung has come up with an alternative to almost every Beats product in their line.  (more…)
