Huawei Nova Lite New Smartphone!

Huawei Nova Lite is a new cool smartphone from Huawei. This is a mid-range device that cost less than Samsung Galaxy A3 2017. It comes with a fingerprint sensor on rear side and glossy design on back.

Main specs: 5.2 inch Display, 1080p resolution, EMUI + Android 7.0 Nougat, Kirin 658 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4xA53 at 2.1GHz and 4xA53 at 1.7GHz, Mali T830 MP2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Plastic and Metal build, MicroSD card expand up to 128GB, 8MP Front camera and 12MP Main camera!

I like the high resolution front selfie camera. This phone gives you a solid 3000mAh battery. A little less mAh than what you get inside Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It has super low weight which surprised me only 146 grams. Very thin phone as well with 7.2mm thickness.

Nova Lite comes with Quick Charge 9V 2A and micro USB charging port. I’m surprised it’s not using the latest Type-C USB connector.

The specs on selfie camera is F/2.0 aperture and specs on rear camera is: BSI CMOS, 1.25um, F/2.0 aperture, 5 piece lens, Zoom mode up to 3.8X and PDAF support. As you can see the rear lens is more advanced than the front one.

This phone still comes with 3.5mm audio jack support. I hope that they don’t completely remove this feature in the future. As we have seen premium brands do on their high end gadgets.

Huawei is calling Nova Lite a romantic phone it comes with 2.5D arc glass and in Blue and Pink edition. A phone that has support for Dual SIM Card. 4G LTE fast data speeds on board. I like how fingerprint sensor has a square shape. It feels original compared to just a round one.

Gaming will be awesome with the powerful Mali GPU. Do you like this phone or you feel something is missing? It doesn’t have IP rating. If it would then it would be an instant sell!

Anica T7 New Mini Card Phone!

Anica T7 is a new mini card phone. Great for someone who wants a sleek tiny affordable phone. Anica has created a bunch of other variants too that you may wanna check out. Let’s go over the specs.

Main specs: 1.63 inch Display, OLDE type screen technology, 240×320 pixels screen, 2G Phone, Dual SIM card Dual Standby, Plastic + Metal Build, Unlocked mobile, TF card support up to 32GB, Smart anti-lost, Bluetooth dial-up, 500 contacts in phonebook and 480mAh battery!

The battery will last for 120 hours in standby mode and about 2 hours it will take to charge it. Very light phone just 85 grams. But in mini card category that’s pretty heavy. There are some available with just 50 grams weight.

But it’s very slim just 4.6mm thickness. In features you get basic things as FM Radio, Wechat, MP3 player and Bluetooth support! This is great when you wanna bring a tiny phone in your wallet. You can connect it to your smartphone.

On the front side in terms of protection you get 2.5D tempered glass mirror with a hardness of 9H. It’s also scratch-resistant and wear resistant. More than previous models from the same company.

My favourite thing is all the various colours that exist: Green, Red, Pink, White and Black! Most phones doesn’t exist in both Red and Green edition. One boring thing with mini card phones is how they don’t give you a camera. So it’s not like a low-end Android. This is more basic. Even some Android smartwatches brings you a camera!

The languages Anica T7 comes with are English, Russian, Arabic, Persian and French. Strange how there is no Spanish or Italian.

The distance of Bluetooth with this device is 10 meters. For example when you connect it to your larger main smartphone. Also comes with both speaker and receiver which is nice for the low price of the unit.

Alcatel 3C New Smartphone!

Alcatel 3C is a new phone that has been leaked in brand new press renders. The new 1, 3 and 5 series from Alcatel will be unveiled at MWC in 1 month. This 3C smartphone reminds me about the ASUS ZenFone 3 design with a glossy rear side.

Main specs: 6 inch HD+ Display, 14440×720 pixels screen, MediaTek MT8321 Chipset, 1GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, 8MP Rear camera, 5MP Front selfie camera, Android Nougat, 3000mAh Battery and price around 120 dollars!

This phone comes in at same price as entry Xiaomi Redmi 5 phone. The RAM is a bit low. The phone looks a bit rounded like LG G6. It comes with a rear located fingerprint sensor. This phone will come in Black and Gold colour. The rear camera sensor is located above the fingerprint sensor.

It has Alcatel text on the back. The thing that is great with this phone is how you get a 6 inch Display for a low price. Usually budget Android phones comes with only 5 inch displays. So this is good for something that is looking to get something very large in size.

We will also see Alcatel 5, 1X, 3, 3V and 3X be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona. The 5 will be the most expensive Alcatel phone. I hope these phones comes with Face ID unlock option. We are quickly getting used to quality Android entry phones for low price of 100 euro.

Meanwhile on premium side of phones people are getting used to 1000 euro phones like Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X and LG V30. But do the so called premium phones really give you anything exclusive? These days with hardware being updated so quickly it’s probably best to go with cheaper smartphones and stick with them. I hope the dual camera trend ends in 2018.

Samsung Galaxy A8 New Smartphone!

Samsung Galaxy A8 is a new phone that finally is official. It looks like a budget Samsung Galaxy S8.

Main specs: 5.6 inch Display, 1080×2220 pixel screen, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, Exynos 7885 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 2×2.2GHz Cortex-A73 and 6×1.6GHz Cortex A-53, Mali-G71 GPU, microSD card up to 256GB, 32GB/64GB Internal Storage, 4GB of RAM, 16MP Primary camera, Dual 16MP + 8MP Front facing camera, Bluetooth 5.0 and 3000mAh Battery!

This phone comes with a fingerprint sensor located at the rear below the camera. Samsung finally learned. You also get the latest USB Type-C connector. You get an always-on display something that Samsung is famous for.

The camera specs on rear are F/1.7 aperture, phase detection, autofocus and LED Flash. Pretty standard from Sammy. What’s interesting is how companies are starting to have dual front facing camera. Companies are starting to detect many use selfie camera more than rear camera.

Bluetooth 5.0 will allow you amazing wireless audio. The phone even comes with a 3.5mm audio jack. FM radio can be found as well. But you may have to use earphones for that. Some phones allows you to use radio without earphones.

A bit sad one more time how this is a phone with a battery you cannot remove. One of the main features is that it comes with IP68 certification. Something we been seeing on most new Samsung from above 300 euro price-range.

In terms of build you get front and back glass and aluminium frame. I would prefer Galaxy J5 2017 aluminium unibody instead. Glass usually breaks eventually. And then the phone needs a more expensive replacement. Eventually in the future I hope phones will be easy in terms of replacing broken parts.

In dimensions this phone has 8.4mm thickness and 172 grams. Which is pretty light for a large display phone. Of course it also comes with LTE fast speeds.

Energizer Power Max P600S New Smartphone!

Energizer Power Max P600S is a new smartphone. It comes with a large battery. Let’s have a look at the features.

Main specs: 5.9 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 1080×2160 pixels screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, Mediatek MT6757CD Helio P25 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz with Cortex-A53, Mali-T880 MP2 GPU, microSD card expand up to 256GB, 32GB/64GB Internal storage, 3GB/6GB of RAM, Dual 13MP + 5MP Primary camera, 8MP Secondary camera and 4500mAh Battery!

You can see that there are two options of this phone. One comes with more RAM and Internal storage. This is a phone that comes with a very heavy weight 190 grams and the thickness makes it very fat too, it’s 9.8mm in thickness.

The materials being used are front glass, aluminium frame and plastic back! This mobile also has support for Dual SIM with Nano SIM type. The USB connector being used is Type-C which is a reversible connector.

You can use wireless earphones because this phone has Bluetooth 4.1. But it also has 3.5mm audio jack. On the rear side you can find a centered fingerprint sensor. This is a feature most phones 2017 comes with. I really enjoy the unique textured look the back side has. Reminds me a little about a Nubia smartphone.

The battery will last for 400 hours on standby over 3G and 12 hours of 3G talk time. The browser is using HTML5 which is good news because now we are even starting to see HTML5 video players go more mainstream. YouTube is starting to get competition from services like Steemit.

With this phone you can even record videos at 2160p video quality resolution at 30 fps. The primary camera comes with basic specs like: Phase detection, autofocus, dual-LED dual-tone flash.

I hope that they will update it to Android 8.0 Oreo because it’s a mid range smartphone you want at least 1 large Android update. This may be a good Galaxy A5 2017 competitor phone.
