Ulefone S8 Pro Is a Beautiful Smartphone!

There is a new cool phone out from a brand called Ulefone. It’s a well designed smartphone. It’s called the S8 Pro.

The specs are: 5.3″ 1280×720 resolution IPS 2.5D corning glass 277ppi display, Dual SIM, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, Quad-core 1.3GHz MT6737 processor from MTK, 13MP rear camera, Video recording in 720p, 0.5mm bezel, 3000mAh battery and Detachable battery!

You can see on the design on S8 Pro it has a fingerprint sensor on the back below the camera. Also that it is curved on back side. It also comes with 3.5mm headphone jack. The camera on the back is dual rear something we have been seeing on most flagship smartphones 2017.

The front facing camera comes with a front facing LED light for brighter selfies. The phone doesn’t come with plastic frame but with a metal premium frame.

The big 3000mAh battery will last 13 hours in call mode, 9 hours of movie watching or 26 hours of music. It also comes packed with latest Android 7.0 Nougat. Which gives you the best of android optimisations.

You can also expand the storage inside S8 Pro with a 128GB micro SD card. TPU bumper cases are also available if you feel like an accident may be close! The front facing camera is a bit boring only 2MP but again you can’t get everything in a affordable smartphone.

The prices on Android smartphones are constantly being pushed down. You used to have to pay at least 450 euro for something decent. Then it got pushed down to 200 euro. And then 150 euro. And now you can even get cool phones for around 100 euro! It’s truly is amazing to see phones getting more affordable. Of course the big brands like Apple and Samsung can still push high prices.

IPRO WAVE 4.0 II Is A Cheap Android Phone!

Ever wanted to have a cool Android phone but think that most are too expensive? It’s true that most Android phones cost a least 150 euro to get something decent. With this phone you can get quad-core for one third of that price! The phone is called IPRO WAVE 4.0 II.

It’s specs include: 2MP rear camera, Quad-core 1.2GHZ processor, 480p video recording, 800×480 resolution display, Dual SIM card support, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, Colour display, Black/White/Rose Red/Blue/Gray Colours available, Android 5.1, 2MP Front camera, Micro SD card support up to 32GB, Detachable 1450mAh Battery and CPU from MTK!

Of course you don’t get flagship specs with IPRO WAVE 4.0 II because this is a low-end entry android device. But it’s still cheaper than new 2017 Nokia 3310. And it comes with a full Google Play store.

For me this phone looks a bit like an Xperia X Compact with capacitive touch buttons below the display. It seems to be running a stock version of Android. Other things you get when buying this phone is a charger, USB cable, manual and a silicone case and pre-installed protective film on phone.

This is also an unlocked phone that you can use all over the world. This is probably a good spare phone to buy. IPRO also got some more expensive phones like the IPRO MORE 5.0.

WAVE 4.0 II has gotten very good reviews people seem very satisfied with their purchase. Probably because of the low price. Very few companies even offer an Android device at this price-range.

It’s a phone designed to look modern by mixing two colours one on the front and another on the back. So it looks quite fashionable. But don’t expect amazing photos with just 2MP camera.

One good thing here is how it comes with a 4″ display. This was something we saw back with iPhone 5 and 5S. Very nice compact size something new companies have abandoned. Now everyone wants to create a phone at least 5 inch in display size. Which can be hard to use with one hand.

Xiaomi Have Type-C Earphones!

These days more and more tech are moving to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack. This becomes a problem for users with old headphones! Thankfully more companies are starting to release Type-C earphones. Xiaomi got a new model called Active Noise Cancelling Hybrid Earphones!

The main features you get here is: USB Type-C connector, ANC with frequency range 50-2000Hz, In-line control, Built-in microphone, ergonomically design for comfort, Stretchable matte wiring, TPE material, dirt-resistant, tangle-resistant and durable.

The main phones Xiaomi ANC earphones is best compatible with are: Xiaomi Mi6, MIX, Note 2, Mi5s, Mi5s Plus and Mi5. You can see that they are designed with a black colour and with nice curved design in mind.

Of course you won’t be able to charge your device at the same time you are using these in-ear earphones. That’s the bad thing with modern smartphones. Well you can charge if it’s over wireless but that’s slower!

They also may be dirt-resistant but they aren’t water resistant. Something I am still waiting for earphones to become. Line length is 1.25 meter. I also wished they had more colours available. Now only black.

Xiaomi ANC is perfect to use with the new Xiaomi Mi6 which has a 5.15 inch display, MIUI 8 based on Android 7.1 Nougat, Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, Adreno 540 GPU, 6GB of RAM + 64GB internal storage.

The nice thing with the Mi6 is how it only cost half the price of a brand new iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8. But still comes with high-end specs and design.

The black edition of Mi6 and black Xiaomi earphones really looks beautiful together. But I would prefer to see a full white earphone variant. Then it would look like Apple quality! Do you like these headphones? We know that Xiaomi always deliver in quality hardware!

DJI Mavic Pro is The Quadcopter That You Want!

The latest trend these days is flying around with various devices like drones, quadcopters, helicopters and more. This is a cool foldable quadcopter called DJI Mavic Pro!

The coolest features it comes with are: Folding technology folds down to bottle of water size, 4K stabilized camera, OcuSync transmission technology up to 7km of range, 24 high-performance computing cores, 5 vision sensors, ActiveTrack + TapFly easier creating professional videos, Obstacle Avoidance, GPS + GLONASS, Up to 64kmh speed, Up to 27 minutes fly time and easy to control with phone.

You can also see that with DJI Mavic Pro the remote controller comes with a large display to see video footage from the quadcopter! It’s weight is 734 grams coming with a 3830mAh battery, maybe a bit on the low side on battery side. Would want at least 6000mAh. But then it also would be heavier to carry around.

The camera being used is a 12.35MP-12.71MP camera. Highest resolution you could record in is 4096×2160 at 24p. 4K you can record in 30p. Full HD up to 96P and 720p up to 120. The max video bitrate is 60 mbps. You can insert a 64GB micro SD card.

The coolest thing with this drone is the ability to track a person then it will handle it like a pro for you for quality video footage. Three different modes you could use: Trace (Follow behind or Front or circle around subject), Profile (Fly alongside subject) and Spotlight (Fly almost anywhere and keep camera on subject).

This is also great if you want to take a selfie at home but doesn’t have a friend to hold the camera. Now you have a robotic flying friend to do that! The tripod mode indoors will make it fly slower and more precise.

Mavic Pro can also stay level headed if you are moving up or down terrain. If you want more battery life then you could use buy an extra spare battery! You can also tap to quickly go to a place making drone flying more fun and giving you a feel of being more in control.
