Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium New Smartphone!

Sony has a new high-end phone that is now being released. It is being called Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. Let’s go deep into the specs and have a look at what you get!

Main specs: 5.8″ Display with 3840×2160 pixel resolution screen, Android 8.0 Oreo, Snapdragon 845 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4×2.7GHz Kryo 385 Gold and 4×1.7GHz Kryo 385 Silver, Adreno 630 GPU, microSD card up to 400GB, 64GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, Primary 19MP + 12MP camera, Secondary 13MP camera with F2.0, USB 3.1 Connector with Type-C 1.0 and 3540mAh battery!

The first thing that I love with this phone is the cool design. The dual rear camera looks awesome on the back side! It’s closer to the center. Usually other companies doesn’t do that kind of design. Below camera you can find a rear fingerprint sensor for easy unlock. They still included a nice distance between the camera and fingerprint sensor so you won’t confuse the two as you will on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S8.

Something that is a bit sad is that this phone still packs massive bezels on the front side which will be a negative for many people. The design is a bit cute because it comes with a rounded design that almost looks like an iPhone 3GS from 2009. That design is a bit nostalgic! But can also look a bit immature for 2018.

Another downside is that this phone is super thick with 11.9mm thickness! This is very fat for majority of people. And it doesn’t even pack 4500mAh battery. This is an IP65/IP68 water and dust resistant smartphone. Sadly it’s also missing a 3.5mm earphone jack. But it does pack latest Bluetooth 5.0.

The two colours you could get it in are either Chrome Black or Chrome Silver. I wish there was a Red, Green and Blue edition. Brown would also work pretty great. Some people think this phone looks like a panda. It seems like Sony is struggling when it comes to trying to make a very compact smartphone. The weight is massive 236 grams. I have no clue what is making it be so heavy!

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro Specs Comparison!

Today I want to compare Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Huawei P20 Pro. Both these two phone brands are my favourites. The first thing that is different in terms of design perspective is that the P20 Pro comes with an iPhone X notch at the top. Something many people dislike. This is a notch that many Android phone companies have started to copy and we may see an LG phone and OnePlus phone also come with a notch.

An interesting difference here is how the S9 comes with new Bluetooth 5.0 while the P20 Pro only has 4.2. This may be important to know if you listen to wireless sound with Bluetooth earphones since 5.0 has some nice improvements in technology.

Another major difference is P20 Pro comes with 4000mAh battery and S9 with only 3000mAh! This is something Samsung has been struggling with as of late. After the Note 7 fiasco with battery issues it feels like they are going the safe path by giving you less mAh just to be on the safe side. But people want a lot of mAh so their phone last a very long time.

A nice thing with the Galaxy S9 is how it gives you microSD card option to expand memory all the way up to 400GB. The Huawei phone has no option to expand memory.

A big difference between these two phones is how the Huawei phone comes with a triple camera on rear side. This is something that we have never seen in the past. 2017 was the big year for dual rear cameras. Perhaps 2018 will be the year of triple real cameras.

The secondary camera on Huawei P20 Pro comes with 24MP sensor while the S9 only has 8MP secondary camera. A bad thing with P20 is how it has no 3.5mm audio jack. The S9 comes with an earphone jack! Great for people that listen to stuff with wired earphones.

It seems like the Galaxy S9 gives you some extra screen protection with Gorilla Glass 5. My Huawei Mate 9 it’s screen broke very easy when I accidentally dropped it. So it seems like Huawei phones got lots of stuff to work on to make them stronger in the future.

In terms of display size it’s a bit bigger on the P20 Pro with 6.1” display the Galaxy S9 comes with 5.8” display. And S9 is then also a little bit lighter to hold in the hand. But many people would prefer a little bit heavier phone to get that premium phone feel experience. Both these phones have water resistance. But the Huawei phones is a bit slimmer which is a big deal for many.

Another problem with the Samsung phone is that the fingerprint sensor is still located too close to the rear camera. This has been a big problem on the Galaxy S8. It also has a design that isn’t rounded so it feels too small. Both the phones run latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. And they both have Octa-core processor and very similar GPUs so gaming performance should be very identical.

To summarise: It mostly comes down to what brand you are most comfortable with using. And what design you prefer the most since the specs is very high end on both devices. Many Apple users will probably think you are an iPhone X fanboy if you buy the Huawei P20 Pro.

I wish both of these phones came with a built in stylus like Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has also a very useful Always-on-display that is super useful. Not sure if the Huawei phone comes with that. Could also be good to know that the P20 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and Galaxy S9 only with 4GB.

It also seems like the P20 Pro phone has a home button at the bottom. It seems to be a real hardware button. Something that many people enjoy to have on front. Especially in these days when more companies are removing that feature.

The price is around the same for these two phones. Huawei is the new Apple I feel since they are very hungry and making gains fast in the phone world. And they produce quality phones compare to boring HTC, Sony and LG!

Blackview P10000 Pro New Smartphone!

Blackview P10000 Pro is a new smartphone that comes with a massive internal battery. One of the biggest I have ever seen. The screen is also very large!

Main specs: 5.99 Inch Display, 1080×2160 pixel screen, IPS type, 18:9 aspect ratio, Android 7.1 Nougat, MT6763 Chipset Helio P32, octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, ARM Mali G71 MP2 GPU clocked at 700MHz, 4GB of RAM LPDDR3 type, 64GB Internal storage, SD/TF card up to 128GB and 4G connectivity.

The first cool aspect about P10000 Pro is the extremely nice design. The battery on the inside has 11,000mAh! Which is like three Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphones! The weight is huge with 293 grams! The thickness of this phone is 14.65mm! I wish the Bluetooth edition was 5.0 but it’s only 4.1. So wireless audio might not be perfect.

The camera sensors you get here is first a 13.0MP + 0.3MP dual front camera. The rear camera has a 16.0MP + 0.3MP setup. And comes with F2.2 aperture. In terms of colours these variants exist: Grey, Leather Gray and Silver. Would love to see a Blue, Red or a Green edition. This phone also comes with support for dual SIM.

P10000 Pro is a bit glossy on the back side. Something we have seen more phones are starting to adopt. The build materials are Australian Calf real leather and high definition glass. The quick charge speed it comes with is 5V/5A! The display more in detail is a In-cell FULL HD+ kind.

Another super cool thing is how it supports Face Recognition technology to fast unlock your phone with face. Same as the Galaxy S9 and iPhone X supports! Samsung is making the memory for this phone and Sony the camera hardware! I really hope it will get an upgrade to Android 8.1 Oreo that is the latest version of Android for the current moment.

Nokia 1 New Smartphone!

Nokia 1 is a new low cost Android smartphone. It’s great for people that want a phone with a smaller display. Most Android phones these days comes with at least a 5 inch display. But many want something smaller. Just as in Galaxy S2 days. This phone can be a good option for old timers.

Main specs: 4.5 inch IPS LCD type Display, 480×854 pixel resolution screen, Android 8.0 Oreo, Mediatek MT6737M Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.1GHz Cortex-A53 type, Mali-T720 GPU, microSD card up to 128GB, 8GB Internal storage, 1GB of RAM, 5MP Primary camera and 2MP secondary camera!

Clearly the camera area is not this phone’s strength side! The battery it comes with has 2150mAh! Another thing that is good to know is that this is a non 4G phone. So no fast internet surf speeds. This is like a more premium Nokia 3310 2017 edition.

The two colours you could get it in are Warm Red and Dark Blue. Wish they had a full Black edition as well. It’s nice how the battery is removable. It also features a 3.5mm audio jack. Bluetooth edition is 4.2. It’s using the old microUSB 2.0 connector instead of Type C.

Another good thing is that this is a plastic phone just as the small Galaxy S2 was. Many new Android phones only comes in metal or glass build. This phone also has support for Dual SIM so perfect for people traveling the world. It’s pretty thick with 9.5mm thickness.

It doesn’t come with a home button but it features 3 on screen keys at the bottom of the display to navigate around in Android. The video recording you can do with this phone is 480p video quality. The Mali GPU will be able to play some nice graphics games.

Huawei P20 Pro New Smartphone!

Huawei has a pro edition of their P20 out. This one comes with a massive display. It also comes with same notch as iPhone X has in design.

Main specs: 6.1 inch AMOLED Display, 1080×2244 pixels screen, EMUI 8.1, Android 8.1 Oreo, Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 4x 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, No card slot, 128GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, Triple camera with 40MP + 20MP + 8MP, Secondary 24MP camera and No 3.5mm jack!

Sad again that we are seeing more companies removing the 3.5mm earphone jack. I still have wired earphones so I need that function. And I don’t want to get a USB Type C adapter just for music listening! The battery has 4000mAh on the other hand which is very impressive.

But just because this phone has a triple rear camera this cause the price to be insanely high. Just as high as the Apple iPhone X! The fingerprint sensor is front mounted. It also comes with fast battery charging. The colours it comes in are Twilight, Black, Midnight Blue and Pink Gold!

Another nice thing that it has is IP67 certification and up to 1m and 30mins! This is both dust and water resistant! It has a pretty heavy weight with 180 grams. Very close to 200 grams. A good thing with it is the slim body with just 7.8mm thickness. This phone also comes with a slimmed down front home button. It seems to be same size as the home button on Samsung Galaxy S4!

The camera on the back side has a traffic light design just as iPhone X. Wish this phone had some special feature. Because the display is so large that I would like to see Huawei create a stylus and implement it into the body. So they can compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup!
