Pixels c: from Chrome OS “Touch” to Android Marshmallows for Yet Another “Test” Public

The new Google device Pixels C, is for sale in some markets, including the us and some EU countries (Italy, for the moment, is excluded). As we have already mentioned a few days ago, the first reviews of the device are online and highlight all of them, some more, some less, some incongruity between software and hardware. In short, the tablet is designed for productivity, thanks to the physical keyboard of excellent quality and at a generous size, but the software (Android Marshmallow) don’t take duty-missing multiwindow, to make one of the most obvious (although apparently will come in the future).

In short, it is easy to ascribe the device to the (too) large category of “beautiful mess” to Google, with products that look very interesting on paper but then for one reason or another are proving disappointing. Ars Technica has put together an interesting Research that does shed some light on the history of its development, which seems to have been very eventful.

Hardware, Materials and ergonomics:

Unlike his mid to high end models, Huawei has chosen for this ShotX a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5 GHz (MSM8939) 616 octa-core with a GPU Adreno 405 and 2 GB of RAMthat allow the system to be getting fairly fast and responsive even if the applications aren’t always fast in the opening. Even after using it for a pretty intense, overheating is not excessive. The integrated memory, expandable via microSD, is 16 GB of which just over 10 GB available to the user.

Xiaomi Mi 5, New (Presumed) Real Photos Confirm the Physical Button Office |Updated

The mysterious Xiaomi Mi 5 is enriched with two new render from the usual Chinese, confirming the presence of social physical central button again along with other small details. From these last photos we can better observe the front panel of the device with its corners rounded and rather quite linear and very thin profile with regard to the display.

It seems that the Pandora’s box has been opened up for the next flagship of Xiaomi, Mi 5.Just last week we showed his first real photo depicting a part of the display, together with a curious render of the entire front end that highlighted the adoption of a Central physical button -style Samsung Galaxy or Meizu, to understand this-probably to make room for the fingerprint scanner. Today we have two new real photos (the alleged is a must, of course), then check out a few hours on the usual social Chinese, which seem to confirm this new stylistic solution.

Available for the time being only in China and author of several sold-out, Huawei Mate 8 is already a great success even in our country in anticipation of the global launch which will be starting in January with the opening of the doors of the CES 2016. Today we want to give you an interesting image gallery and our first impressions, thanks to a test that we could do on the field of its Chinese Variant.

In hand offers a solid feel unique, very similar to the little brother Mate S with which it shares much of the building, design and material (but not the slight curve on the back), absolutely top quality. Despite the 6-inch diagonal, optimization of frames is the best you can find to date on a smartphone, making it appear less “frying pan” than you might think.

Xiaomi Redmi 3 Notes

A few months after the presentation of the Redmin Note 2 Xiaomi churns out this Redmi Note 3 scoring another hit that confirms the reputation of the company. A device that knows a little provocation to other brands and the race who shoots the highest price and represents a good compromise between quality construction and good performance.

Hardware, Materials and ergonomics:

With Redmi Note 3 Xiaomi has definitely saved in terms of materials and build quality metal unibody, weight that remains quite low considering the huge, generous size but which do not affect the General ergonomics and a general good feeling are the strengths of this product as soon as we start to use. 5.5 inches may seem too many for someone. But if you are looking for a terminal with a large screen but held in your pocket, the Redmi could do for you thanks to a good optimization of frames. However the similarity with the competitor Meizu MX5 does not give us the idea of dealing with an innovative design Continue reading
