Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: We Actually Gained about 6 Subscribers!

By Tim

If you have been reading this web site for the last few months you would know that we actually are now in synch with our new video channel! Sure we post a lot of other videos but we always try to get our latest videos posted here also!

Today I was pleasantly surprised to see a few new subscribers to our channel! Of course I also had a bit of news on the priorities here shifting just a bit due to a slight issue with my BLU Studio Energy 2 phone.

I will leave all the details to that for the video to explain. Suffice to say a replacement phone is in order soon, although mostly due to my own paranoia about older tech with almost zero problems. Crazy? Yep! But that is just me so, check out the video below and make sure to like/share/subscribe!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

JBL Link View Smart Display With Google Assistant Now Available for Preorder

By James A.

One more device from the Smart Display series has been made available, after the Lenovo Smart Display one. This time it’s the JBL Link View, focused on Google Assistant and also packing a screen and front camera.

It’s hard to believe that Google Assistant was released in 2016, since it has become so omnipresent nowadays. It’s clearly superior to Siri, Amazon Alexa and Cortana, when it comes to both smartphone and smart speaker integration. Earlier this year Google unveiled the Smart Display platform, with partners like LG, Lenovo, JBL and Sony even. JBL’s product is now up for preorder, after a long waiting period.

LG also has the WK9, while Lenovo has 8 inch and 10 inch versions of its own Smart Display. JBL Link View’s official preorder page mentions US deliveries meant for September 3rd, which is still a month away. The price is $249.95, which is $20 more than the Echo Show. The device shows YouTube videos, photos, weather info, recipes and news. It can take videocalls via a 5 MP front facing camera.

JBL has something extra from its rivals: audio quality of its very appreciated speakers and audio systems. Their deep bass has always been praised on this very competitive market. I expect LG and Sony’s products now.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 Launched: Midrange Slate With S450 CPU, Dolby Audio

By James A.

Aside from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 high end tablet, Samsung also announced a midrange slate today, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 model. It packs a Snapdragon 450 CPU and midrange specs, all detailed below.

The Tab A is meant for the general public, has no stylus and it’s meant more for video and music. The 10.5 inch screen offers a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and it’s based on an IPS LCD Panel. Aside from the Snapdragon 450 processor we also get 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.

A main 8 MP camera is integrated here, plus a 5 MP front shooter. This device has 4 Dolby Atmos capable speakers and a generous 7300 mAh battery, like the Tab S4. It also brings an USB Type-C port, WiFi 802.11 a/b/n/ac, WiFi Direct and Bluetooth 4.2, as well as LTE. It weighs 529 grams and measures 8 mm in thickness.

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and it also has a special Kids Mode with 8 special apps for the little ones. There’s also something called Always On Daily Board, which is a sort of aggregator for daily info, including a watch, calendar, a digital library of pictures and more. SmartThings has also been included, used to control smart home items.

No price has been mentioned, but I expect something in the range of $300.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Tablet Now Official, With 4 Speakers, Snapdragon 835 Processor

By James A.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 finally became official today, after a series of leaks, that culminated in hands on shots and even a video. Well, today everything is clear and all the specs we knew were confirmed. Let’s check them out.

Samsung chose the first day of August to debut its latest high end tablet. This device measures just 7.1 mm in thickness, weighs a mere 482 grams and packs a 10.5 inch Super AMOLED screen with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. It also has a 16:10 aspect and packs a last year flagship CPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. We’ve also got a metal unibody case, with a back covered with glass.

The device’ also brings 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 256 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot. As expected, there’s no Home button here and no fingerprint scanner, replaced by an irisc scanner. There’s also DeX support, so you can hook the device up to a secondary screen via HDMI and get an UI similar to the desktop one. On the multimedia front, we’ve got 4 speakers on board with AKG and Dolby Atmos technology.

The battery is a generous 7300 mAh unit, that will be charged fast, via a bundled 15W charger. The good news is that we also get a new generation S-Pen, the same kind of stylus expected to come with the Galaxy Note 9. Also on board we have WiFi connectivity, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB Type-C port. A LTE version will also be available later on. The OS of choice is Android 8.1 Oreo and sadly no price details were revealed.

The above mentioned battery is said to offer up to 16 hours of video. Samsung Knows is also here, plus features like Samsung notes, Screen-Off Memory and Samsung Live Message.

Huawei Honor Note 10 Debuts With 7 inch Screen, Kirin 970 CPU, Liquid Cooling

By James A.

Huawei Honor Note 10 is supposed to be the latest smartphone on the market, but it feels more like a tablet. It’s got a 7 inch screen, it’s focused on gaming and has a flagship CPU inside, the Kirin 970. And the price is not half bad.

Just unveiled officially, the device packs a solid AMOLED 6.95 inch screen panel with Full HD+ resolution, HDR10 support and somehow without a notch. It also has a 115% NTSC color support and comes with an octa core HiSilicon Kirin 970 CPU. Also on board are 6 or 8 GB of RAM, plus 64 or 128 GB of storage. A liquid cooling sollution is included here, as part of a 9 layer system used for heat dissipation.

Of course, the device has GPU Turbo, but also a new feature called CPU Turbo. They both work in tandem forming the Double Turbo mode, activated via a dedicated hardware button. That button can also serve as the shutter key for the camera. Speaking of which, the Honor Note 10 offers a dual back shooter with 24 MP + 16 MP combo, while upfront sits a 13 MP camera. It’s got the usual AI setup for scene recognition and other AI features.

 

Android 8.1 Oreo also makes the cut, with EMUI 8.2 on top and a 5000 mAh battery is in the mxi as well. Super Charge is supported and the price sounds pretty nice to me. I’m talking about a $409 starting sum, for the 6 GB RAM, 64 GB storage model. The 6 GB RAM, 128 GB model goes for $468 and the 8 GB RAM, 128 GB storage unit goes for $527. It’ll be available in Midnight Black and Phantom Blue from August 1st.
