Huawei Mate 7 Review: Big is beautiful again

Published by on Apr 22nd, 2015, 11 Comments

d2 Huawei is making a big push in SA and we are happy to see it. They strive to bring top-notch devices at more affordable prices – something Chinese firms are very good at doing. Huawei, Lenovo and Xaomi are all top 5 smartphone manufacturers in the world and the competition is fierce. You might notice that Huawei has dropped the ‘Ascend’ name (previously this phone was called the Ascend Mate 7) – they are completely refining their branding and naming conventions.

Recently the Huawei Mate 7 has made its way into the South African market and we were lucky enough to review it for an extended period of time. I actually took it on a trip to Europe and exclusively used it as my daily driver for the two weeks, so it had a lot of work to do.

Before we get to the full review, here are some key features: (more…)

2015 is an interesting year for Microsoft. For the first time in years, the Redmond company seems to be establishing a vivid ecosystem, with results which look – so far – to be impressive. From the forthcoming release of Windows 10, to Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia, Microsoft now has the opportunity to regain the confidence of its consumer base – and that pursuit of critical appeal is where the firm’s newest budget smartphone, the Lumia 535, comes into play.

You can read the full written review here. But first, below is the video review by Bryan Smith. Please check it out and let us know what you think. (more…)

Forget the rumours surrounding the LG G4 for a second, there’s another phone to discuss now. A couple months back, we first heard of an LG phone flying under the codename LS770 being approved by the FCC in the United States; at the time, we weren’t quite sure what the phone was, although we did know of the existence of a 5.8-inch display and a respectably-sized 3,000 mAh battery.

Review: Acer Chromebook C720P – Laptop evolution?

Published by on Apr 15th, 2015, No Comments

Acer-C720P-Chromebook-600x339The Chromebook is a bit tricky to understand. It looks like an ordinary laptop but we’re somewhere between tablet and PC, phone-style speed computing and an older, more old-fashioned computer. Chrome OS, which is Google’s browser-based, all-cloud operating system, tries to bridge the gap between a laptop and tablet with an OS that’s really just a fully-featured super-browser with a keyboard, storage and Webcam attached.

Partnering with Acer (and various other companies) Google brings you the Chromebook. These low cost devices, stripped down to the bare necessities – low-power processors, low-resolution screens and a minimum amount of memory and storage is a very affordable alternative to the super expensive laptops out there.

We got our hands on the Acer Chromebook C720P to see what all the fuss is about. (more…)
