Xiaomi Mi Note 3 Is a Sleek Phone!

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is a new cool smartphone from this popular chinese phone brand. It comes with the regular design that reminds us about an iPhone.

First it has: 5.5″ FHD IPS 1080p 403ppi display, facial-recognition (Major hit on iPhone X and Galaxy S8), 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, Snapdragon 660 Octa-core processor, Adreno 512 at 650MHz GPU, 4G, 3500mAh battery, Multi-functional NFC, 7 series aluminium alloy metal frame, 4-sided curved glass body, IR blaster, 16MP AI beautify camera, Stereo speakers and Reading mode display.

Probably the first thing you will notice with Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is how it has super narrow bezels. Dual camera solution just as iPhone X and Note 8. It’s also super slim.

The camera more in depth is: 12MP wide angle + 12MP telephoto, 2x Optical zoom, 4-axis OIS, optimized low-light photography, portrait mode and creamy DSLR-level bokeh effect.

Mi Note 3 is a large phone. Xiaomi Mi6 is 5.15″ in display size and Note 3 5.5″ so it’s bigger in display and also in form factor. But it looks still very identical in design to Mi6.

The glass back cover can become a problem. iPhone X glass back will probably need a case. Same for Note 8’s glass back because of it’s larger size the impact would be much heavier and may break the glass. This is something you need to consider when buying a glass back phone. It may break, or maybe better worded: There is a high chance it will break compared to plastic or aluminium back!

It doesn’t state but it’s probably running on Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes with MIUI 8 which is Xiaomi’s custom skin. You can also expand the storage with external TF card up to 128GB.

The front facing camera on Xiaomi Mi Note 3 has a high 16MP sensor but doesn’t state the deeper specs on it. 4K video recording on rear is in 30fps. But slow motion is available in 720p at 120fps. Latest bluetooth 5.0 is on-board!

Fingerprint sensor is on as well something that’s standard on most Android devices these days. USB Type C fast charge. 163 grams in weight so not too heavy. It doesn’t have a 3.5mm earphone jack but you get a Type-C to Audio cable with the phone. Never understood how it makes a phone better having to use adapters for basic things like sound.

Best Durable Phone 2017?!

JESY J9S is another super durable smartphone! Yesterday I check out the Blackview BV8000 which is as well a rugged phone. Today we are going to check out another phone which I find more cool in design. The JESY J9S.

Specs are: MT6755 Octa-core 64-bit ARM-A53 processor clocked at 2.0GHz, ARM Mali T860 MP2 GPU, 64GB Internal storage, 4GB LDDR3 RAM, TF card support up to 128GB, 5.5″ 1080p Full HD 401ppi Gorilla Glass 4 display, 6150mAh battery, IP68 Dust and Water Proof, 3.5mm earphone port, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera and Dual micro-SIM slot.

The weight on JESY J9S is… wait for it… 292 grams weight! Haha this is the heaviest phone in the universe! Feels like we are going back to the brick phones from the 80s! Quick charge is available with Type-C USB 2.0.

Even though it’s super heavy my favourite thing with this phone is the massive 6000+ mAh battery. Never heard about a phone with that much before. ASUS ZenFone Max and DOOGEE BL5000 has 5000mAh battery but 6000mAh is just craziness! Perfect for something who will be out in the woods for a long time.

It also comes with fingerprint ID, NFC, IR Remote, SOS and Wireless Charging! 4G is also available for the best connectivity while surfing and talking. It has a very cool design that looks rugged and stable. Latest Android 7.0 Nougat will provide you with the best Android bug fixes.

It doesn’t just come with water and dust proof but you can also drop the phone from 2 meters. The fingerprint is located at the back on the phone below the cool camera sensor. I like how the camera has a triangle shape.

I also like how the display should be able to work with wet fingers and gloves. It also comes with an interesting 3 satellite system to find you easier and more precise: GPS, Beidou and Glonass.

It also comes with built in sensors that are good for outdoors like Thermometer, Compass and Rescue Button.

JESY J9S comes in at a price range of Galaxy A3 2017. But with a bigger display and more durable and bigger battery. The problem with the latest Samsung phones is how they will break easily because of the glass back.

DOOGEE’s Latest Bezel-less Smartphone Late 2017!

DOOGEE have a new phone coming out soon that is a Lite version of their Mix variant! It’s called the DOOGEE Mix Lite! It comes with same cool bezel-less design. And in Black/Blue editions. I got BL5000 from DOOGEE sent to me which was a very quality phone! It’s nice to see that they have a new phone in the works. Let’s take a look at the specs you get inside this smartphone.

The specs goes: MT6737 4x Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.45GHz, Mali-T720 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, External Micro SD/TF card support up to 128GB, 5.2″ HD IPS 1280×720 resolution with 1100:1 contrast, 13.0MP + 13.0MP rear camera (Samsung ISOCELL sensor, LED Flash, 88 degree wide angle, blur mode) and Front facing camera is 8.0MP (f/2.2, 90 degree wide angle, auto beauty mode).

I also like how Mix Lite comes with a fingerprint sensor. Something that seems to be standard on most phones these days. Even the lower end phones. They call it the DTouch front fingerprint, it has 0.1s unlock time and 360 degree identification.

A big thing I enjoy is the large battery 3080mAh almost as much as Galaxy Note 8’s 3200mAh. But I expect more from Note 8 because it’s 9x more expensive! The weight on Mix Lite is 160 grams and have bluetooth 4.0.

The dual rear camera looks very beautiful. It has the traffic light design same as iPhone X. But located at the center so it creates more symmetry.

The big DOOGEE MIX is slighty larger in display size 5.5″ instead of 5.2″. It won’t be that of a big difference. But perfect for people who prefer smaller form factor phones.


Mix Lite also comes with DOOGEE UI which I have tested and that is very beautifully designed and comes with useful interesting features. Reminds me a little bit about Huawei Mate 9’s user interface.

I think this phone will be a major seller because it has latest Android 7.0 Nougat which everyone knows performs well. And people really like that bezel-less design so good we are seeing cheaper alternatives.

Anica T8 Is a New Mini Card Phone! Looks like a mini iPhone X!

Anica has produced some super cool mini card phones in the past! I unboxed their Anica A9+. Now they have created a new version which almost looks like a mini iPhone X. This is my favourite version from Anica so far. It’s called the Anica T8!

The specs are: MTK6261M at 104MHz, External Micro SD/TF card up to 32GB, 1.54″ OLDE 240×320 pixel display, FM support, 5pin earphone port, Micro USB data transfer port, Bluetooth, 400mAh battery, 120 hours standby, charge time 2 hours and 85 grams weight.

Something worth saying about Anica T8 is that the charge time is very long for a small battery in this card phone. I wish it had USB Type-C.

It comes in 5 colours: Blue, Gold, Red, Black and Green. Very shiny classy premium design. Very compact in size. 4.6mm thin, 113mm tall and 48mm wide. You can use the card phone as a remote control to other gadgets.

It has built in functions as Bluetooth dial-up, smart anti-lost, QQ, WeChat, Music, Radio, Message App, Dialer, File Explorer Settings, Music App and more. The edge is 2.5D curved with 9H hardness.

This is the third generation of a very popular mini card phone so they have learned and made improvemets. Just as when Apple releases a new smartphone every year. You have a nice golden ring around the only button in the bottom front.

It would be a nice feature to see games be available in these tiny phones but for the moment it’s not available. I like how you get both screen protector and earphones when you buy this tiny phone.

You have 5 default languages in Anica T8 : English, Italian, Spanish, Persian and Hindi available. This is definitely a gadget that will impress your friends when they see how tiny and useful it can be. It also comes in at a very can’t complain price. Maybe I will buy this model to see if they have made any major differences since the A9+.

Blackview’s Long-lasting BV8000 Pro Smartphone!

Blackview has a new durable phone out it’s called BV8000 Pro. It’s even below the Galaxy A3 2017 in terms of price! But still comes with some interesting specs.

The specs goes: Octa-core MT6757V processor, 5.0 Inch Screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, IP68, 64GB internal storage, 6GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, NFC, 4180mAh battery with 9V2A fast charge, Max 256GB expandable storage, LTE 4G+ with upload speed 50Mbps and 300Mbps download.

You also can charge other phones with the OTG Function on BV8000 Pro. Or connect an external mouse, external USB flash drive/external gamepad. The GPU is ARM Mali-880-MP2 900M. Which will perform well in both Gameloft and Rockstar games. Actually most games on Android is highly optimised for this kind of processor.

You get a 3.5mm earphone port. Fingerprint scanner. Tri-Proof protection. The crazy part here is the weight. 233 grams! I have never heard about a phone that heavy. It will surely make the phone feel more premium. The USB connector is new Type-C. It’s also very thick phone which can be a negative 13.2mm.

The front facing camera is 8MP so you will be able to take good selfies maybe even under water! There is also support for Dual SIM cards. With nano sim card type. It seems like it comes with a stock version of Android which might be a little bit boring. Probably with just stock Google apps.

A cool thing with BV8000 Pro is the unique “Alienware” design. Which will make all your friends jealous and curious at the same time. Also nice how it feels solid and rugged. And you get a great loud speaker with NXP Smart Pa. The protection on the display is gorilla glass 3. Not the latest Gorilla Glass 5 but still cool on a cheaper phone.

My favourite things with this device is the large 4000mAh battery, IP68 waterproof, the loud speaker and the rugged solid premium alienware build.
