Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Gets First Unboxing Clip Posted Officially (Video)

By Radu Iorga

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-4-unboxing (1)

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 was sold out on Korean preorders a few days ago and today it’s available in South Korean stores. As people are getting more and more excited about the phablet, here’s an unboxing video or two to detail what’s inside the package.

You can watch here a 2 minute Korean unboxing video done by SamsungTomorrow, a PR arm of the company. The phablet comes inside a 100% recyclable box, that contains the usual USB cable, charger, headphones, headphone plugs, the battery, spare S Pen tips and manuals. Of course, packaging may vary depending on the region, but basically this is what you should be getting with the phone.

 

Notice how the theme of the box has changed now and it’s no longer a wooden imitation. The Note 4 looks a bit thicker than I imagined and keeps the general design lines of its last two predecessors. It’s a Quad HD device with a Super AMOLED panel, 3 GB of RAM and an Exynos 5433 chip in the Korean version, while other parts of the world will get a Snapdragon 805. Last I heard, the worldwide rollout of the product happens in mid October and Europeans will get it with a price tag of around 800 euros.

Folks in USA will spend about $299 on it with a 2 year contract.

Cube iWork8 2 GB RAM Tablet With Windows 8.1 Registers Price Drop to $114

By Radu Iorga

2gb

The Cube iWork8 is a slate that we’ve heard about for a while, but not very long, to be honest. This model is in the news again, this time through a price drop, reaching as little as $114. The Cube device has 2 GB of RAM and it shouldn’t be confused with the 1 GB RAM version.

The product was launched in July and it’s an 8 inch Windows 8.1 slate with 32 GB of flash storage. Originally, it was priced at $130, but it lost about $15 now. The screen offers a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution on an IPS panel and inside the slate there’s a quad core Intel Bay Trail T Z3735D CPU. Its battery is said to last over 8 hours on average and the standby time should be around 21 days.

WiFi, HDMI and OTG are also included in the mix. From what I’ve dug up from the web, the iWork8 has a separate charging port, so it frees up the USB port for devices and you won’t have to wait before connecting something. Finally, you should know that this unit has a plastic case, but reports say it’s solid.

Colorful Unveils New 8 Core 3G Tablet: Colorfly G808 3G

By Radu Iorga

G808-3G

Colorful has unveiled a new tablet, a model dubbed Colorfly G808 3G, that features an 8 core CPU and 3G connectivity. It appears that 3G is a big deal among the features that people want on Asian tablets, that’s why Chinese makers are banking on it.

The G808 relies on an octa core MediaTek processor and it also has 3G capabilities, as well as an 8 inch screen. It appears that MediaTek has offered its solutions on 20 million tablet PC units during the first half of the year, so they’re quite popular in that area. It appears all we get is the image above and a few specs, so we have to speculate on the rest.

From what I see we get two small columns of speakers, 8 GB of storage, as printed on the device and what seems to be a metallic case with a plastic edge (or the other way around). Since this is a 3G model, phone calling is not excluded, as well as the presence of a SIM card slot right next to a microSD one. Android KitKat is pretty much a given here, as well as 1 or 2 GB of RAM.

Reports suggest the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may bend in your pocket

By Andrew Cunningham

An iPhone 6 Plus displaying a subtle bend after a weekend of use.

Early buyers have now had a few days with their new iPhones, but some of them are running into a problem: in some cases the thin, flat phones are bending or warping slightly in users’ pockets.

The earliest reports came from MacRumors, where forum posters reported bending in the iPhone 6 Plus after a weekend of use. Later, Geek.com writer Russell Holly posted photos of the smaller iPhone 6 exhibiting some of the same behavior. When placed on its (normally flat) front face, Holly’s iPhone 6 rocks back and forth slightly on its face, a behavior we haven’t noticed in any of our iPhone 6es or iPhone 6 Pluses. Based on the reports that we’ve read so far, it appears that some combination of body heat and pressure from the carrier’s pocket is responsible for the warping.

We’ve reached out to Apple for a comment on the situation and will update this article if the company responds. It’s worth noting that many phones, including the older iPhone 5 and 5S, have been known to bend occasionally—Cult of Mac has a nice roundup with plenty of examples. The question at this point is whether these reports of bending and warping iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units are isolated incidents or if, like the iPhone 4’s antenna problems, the issue is endemic to the new design. We’ll keep an eye on this one as more people begin receiving the phones and as we spend more time with them ourselves.

Digma Plane 10.5 3G is a 10 Inch Tablet With 3G Connectivity and Phone-Like Design

By James A.

Plane10_53G

The Digma Plane 10.5 3G is a 10 inch tablet, that stands out through the inclusion of 3G connectivity among the specs and a design format that feels more like a phone than a tablet. The creators of the device claim that it’s supposed to offer productivity features, like e-mail reading, document interaction and working with spreadsheets.

The tablet has a stylish case and if my eyes don’t mistake me, I think there’s even a camera flash in the mix, a rare occurence for tablets. Upfront we’ve got a 10.1 inch IPS display with an A grade panel. There’s a SIM card slot also included, with Internet access and coverage for all networks. Finally, the product offers a light sensor and a 6200 mAh battery, that should be enough for 8 hours of functioning on a single charge.

Digma Plane 10.5 3G will also feature a MediaTek quad core 1.2 GHz MT8382 processor, as well as Android 4.2 as the OS and 1 GB of RAM. It has 8 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, a 2 MP back camera and a front 0.3 MP shooter. The product measures 9.5 mm in thickness.
