This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: Unboxing The P20 Knockoff Phone! Initial Impressions

By Tim

As promised a few days back…okay perhaps a week, tonight we have the unboxing of the “Mystery Phone”. This device was sent to me by subscriber Mike Reed whose channel link will be in the links below. So technically speaking this is a secondary unboxing.

Bottom line here is that this smartphone will get thoroughly tested and I will tell you if these P20 knockoff’s are worth your time. Make sure to visit my web site for more thoughts and details.

All links mentioned in the video are listed  below:
Mike Reed’s Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr8q0k8jNqI9NqllOYOPUPA
Where to buy: https://www.wish.com/search/p20%20smartphone

What I found so far, the short list:

  • The phone only reports about having maybe 16 GB Storage
  • The Display is very good but a mere  480 x 960
  • The battery charges faster than I thought it would
  • The CPU is only a Quad-Core
  • Have yet to verify this is Android 8.1
  • The Ram is reported as 1 GB

So far I have done all my checking using AIDA64 and CPU-Z.  Any other Apps out there to seriously probe a device? Leave a comment on our YouTube channel!

HP Launches 3 New Laptops for the Education Market, Part of the Stream, ProBook Lines

By Radu Iorga

HP debuted 3 new laptops this week, ones meant for the education market. They’re entry level and midrange models, part of the ProBook and Stream series, including a convertible model or two. Let’s check them out.

HP Stream 11 Pro G5 is an entry level laptop with a 180 degree hinge and its chassis is more resilient than average, being almost rugged. It’ll be available from December in classrooms and it comes with an 11.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The touch part is optional. The CPU choices are Celeron N4000, N4100 and Pentium Silver N5000.

Up to 8 GB of RAM are available, 64 GB or 128 GB of storage and USB Type-A ports of the 3.1 and 2.0 variety, as well as HDMI 1.4. We’ve also got an audio jack here, a power jack and a 37.69 Whr battery. It all weighs 2.8 pounds.

 

The other models are HP ProBook x360 11 G3 Education Edition and HP ProBook x360 11 G4 EE. These are compact convertibles also meant for the classroom. It’s odd to see HP launching a third gen and fourth gen model at the same time, but hey, who are we to judge? The third gen unit has an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel display, with a 360 degree hinge and touchscreen, plus the choice of Celeron N4000 and N4100, or a Pentium Silver N5000.

Up to 8 GB o RAM are here, plus a 48 Wh battery and a spill resistant keyboard.

The HP ProBook x360 11 G4 EE goes to a Core m3 or even Core i5 CPU, but those are coming in Spring 2019. Storage goes up to 256 GB of SSD. Prices should be affordable, since these are products for students.

iBall Slide Elan 3×32 Tablet is a 10.1 incher With 7000 mAh Battery, Priced at Just $234

By Radu Iorga

Today we found a new iBall slate which may interest our public in India (we have a lot of readers from there). It’s the iBall Slide Elan 3×32 tablet model, a 10.1 incher with a 7000 mAh battery, priced at just $234.

It was launched recently and feels like something Lenovo would launch. It’s available on online and offline retailers in India and it comes in a single color hue, black. There’s a 10.1 inch IPS display here, with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Inside we find a quad core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, plus 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot.

Camera-wise, we get a 5 megapixel rear shooter with LED flash and autofocus, plus a 2 MP front shooter with its own LED flash. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, has a 7000 mAh battery as the selling point, which on paper should deliver up to 20 days of standby time. It can also offer 6 hours of video playback and 23 hours of audio playback. On the connectivity front there’s 4G LTE, VoLTE, USB OTG and WiFi, Bluetooth, as well as GPS and FM Radio with FM recording.

iBall Slide Elan 3×32 has a few apps preloaded, pretty useful most of them, like Word, Excel and Powerpoint, plus various chat/support apps to connect to the people from iBall. From what I can see it runs a pretty clean Android, without excessive customization.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Openshot Handbrake h264 Versus h265

By Tim

This video is a sort of follow up to my previous video where I was playing around shooting in 1080p and then compressing a rather huge file down to a much more manageable size. This one covers Openshot and Handbrake as I compare a very short video clip encoded with first h.264 and then h.265. I apologize for the overlapping audio when I was comparing the 2 versions near the end.

This video after editing was 442 MB in size. That makes for a long upload, so I used Handbrake and reduced it to a mere 34.2 MB with no loss of quality at all!

Handbrake is a free Open Source encoder that can reduce video files by as much as 10 times smaller! It is available for  Mac, Windows and Linux.

So let us get right to that video and make sure to visit the channel and like, share and subscribe!

Another Video Worth Sharing: 2018 Apple MacBook Air Unboxing & First Look Review

By Tim

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers his initial unboxing and First Look Review of the new 2018 MacBook Air.

This is a refresh of the MacBook Air and folks have been eagerly awaiting it and it isn’t a bad notebook. However it has the usual Apple formula, take away ports, remove some feature and then kick the price upstairs!

This one is powered by a dual-core i5 processor and runs fairly cool It isn’t upgradeable so make sure to order the version that will get you through the next few years.

As usual this is a super well produced video so make sure to visit Andrew’s channel on Youtube and subscribe if you like this type of content.

Now let us proceed at once to the video!
