IntroductionThe Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has been out for a couple of months now – though, in select markets only – and while we did take the device through the usual steps of extensively testing and evaluating it, just as we do with every flagship, there is still a lot that cannot be covered with a general, short-term review of the smartphone. Namely – all the little nuances, benefits, and small, irritating drawbacks that a pocketable computer-class device can only show once it has been used as a daily driver for a while.So, as you've seen PhoneArena do before in the “Living with...” series, I will be taking the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge on a 4-week journey as my handset, judging its form and function, looking for the nitpicky details, and generally draw a more detailed outline of the phone's positive and negative sides.Of course, seeing as this will be a long-term review, one in which I will inevitably have to express a subjective opinion on how some of … [Read more...] about Living with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, week 1: Look at those curves!

They could have made the S6 edge+ the mainstream thin and light one with the note staying with the battery/SD card bonuses, but no... That would make too much sense. posted on 24 Aug 2015, 10:58 2 2. Clars123 (Posts: 1002; Member since: 16 Mar 2015) the lack of expandable storage wasn't a design choice but a result of a technological bottleneck with UFS 2.0 memory....agree with the battery though they should have at least kept it the same 3220mAh battery or made it larger all the same if they were going to embed it posted on 24 Aug 2015, 11:20 13 5. Finalflash (Posts: 3712; Member since: 23 Jul 2013) The memory excuse is just a BS excuse. It's the same thing as Sony saying the vibration motor messed with the SIXAXIS controller back during the PS3 release and then releasing a vibrating … [Read more...] about Comments for : Samsung Galaxy Note5 “inboxing / unboxing” video lets us take a look at what’s inside the phone

You are the reason that Apple has such a bad name and the reason why Apple has stopped innovating. You just whine whine whine whine whine and whine some more and get no outcome out of it. How silly is that? You are just a silly person who needs to adjust your priorities. 14.

Let's look at the new vivo xplay 6. This phone has a slim 5.2 mm body, 4000 mAh battery and still had enough space to put a dual cameras and a head phone jack. PA please stop defending the supposedly courage it took Apple and just call it a business decision in order to sell high priced blue tooth head phones. posted on 03 Jan 2017, 21:40 9 2.

With the hot, new G5, LG introduced a pretty interesting feature for its IPS LCD displays – the always on screen. Much like we've seen on the LG V10's secondary screen, the G5's display can keep a backlight on for about 30% of its normal brightness and have a small area of the screen display a few items, such as time, a personal message, and pending chat notifications.The always on feature consumes up to 0.8% of battery per hour, according to LG. It is smart enough to adjust its brightness depending on environment luminance, so the number could be lower than that in specific scenarios. Still, this sounds bad to some in theory, as simple maths translate it as an 8% drain just from the display in 10 hour of standby. But the idea is that since users don't need to fully light up their screen to check for the time or notifications, the feature would actually save up on battery in the grand scheme of things. Of course, it remains to be seen how the G5 performs in the battery life … [Read more...] about A closer look at the LG G5’s always on display feature
