Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 60 Second Review

Here’s a Samsung tablet for those of you working outdoors or in an environment a little more open to drops and the wet stuff.

The anti-shock covering can withstand a 1.2-meter. The IP67 certification adds piece of mind that water or dust won’t cause any issues.

It’s still a Samsung tablet running Android so you get all he great extras Google Play offers along with Samsung Knox offers defence-grade mobile security and the C-Pen so if you’re wearing gloves you can still work your way around the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active and get things done.

Honor 6 Unboxing

huawei-honor-6-frontWe’ve had an influx of new handsets over the past couple of months and the Honor 6 is the newest of the new. The Honor brand comes with backing from Huawei who are massive players in the world of mobile hardware and mobile communication infrastructure.

The Honor 6 does come packing some very impressive specifications, one of which is the screen and from the above picture you get an idea of what to expect. The 5 inch screen has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (445 ppi) and this will see pictures and other media really stand out. Put this up against the iPhone 6 Plus, Z3 and the Galaxy S5 and the results will be similar.

You’ll find a Sony 13 MP camera with the Honor 6 so stand by for some very good looking pictures. A huge front facing 5 megapixel camera takes care of video calls and selfies.

Power comes from the 1.7 GHz & 1.3 GHz (2x quad core) processor and keeping everything running smoothly is 3GB of RAM.

As Jon says in the video, the Honor 6 is aiming at those who want the high specs but without the high price tag. At just under £250 you get a lot of phone for your money.

Take a look at the unboxing video above and let us know your thoughts.

Honor 3C Unboxing

honor-3c-white-front-croppedThe Honor 3C comes in at great value for money when you look at the specifications. You would be right in expecting a great deal more than the £109.99 asking price considering the technology included, not far off double would be a fair bet.

The Honor 3C comes with  Android 4.2 Jelly Bean installed, but with the Honor Emotion UI overlay that makes the icons bolder and colourful. You can even change the theme to give the Honor 3C your own look and feel. With access to Google Play you get more apps than you can wave a stick at.

Powering the device is a 1.3 GHz quad -core processor with 2 GB RAM to give you a seamless experience when moving around the Honor 3C. Keeping all that going is a juicy 2,300 mAh battery that also has patented SmartPower2.0 technology, this is a power saving feature that helps push your battery for longer.

Be snap-happy with the rear 8 megapixel main camera, also to the front we have a huge 5MP lens for a selfie or video calls on the 5 inch HD screen.

In the unboxing video Jon gives you his take on the Honor 3C and I reckon we’ll be seeing a great deal more from them and making a name for themselves. If you’re intrigued and would like to get your hands on one then hit the blue button below, you can have one in White or Black.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 Unboxing

For those working in environments that are that little more challenging, Samsung would like to introduce you to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0. It has been designed specifically for the enterprise market and comes with features their consumer-focused devices are pretty much unlikely to see.

The stand out features here include an IP67 Certification; the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 can be submersed in 1 metre of water for up to 30 minutes and you won’t have to worry about dust getting in.

Add the ability to withstand a drop from 4 feet on to concrete, a POGO pin charging connection and the ability to make calls over a mobile network, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 8.0 at £450 certainly makes the right device for the above-average working day.

Kazam Tornado 348 Unboxing

There are a lot of numbers to get your head around with the Kazam Tornado 348. Not only is it the world’s thinnest phone at 5.15 mm but it also has an 8-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera to the back and a 5MP on the front.

Chuck in a single-use free screen replacement and a 36 month warranty (when registered) and Kazam have ticked quite a few boxes here.

These and the other key specs include:

  • 5.15mm thin – Guinness World Records slimmest smartphone
  • 4.8″ AMOLED 1280 x 720 HD screen
  • 1.7GHz octa-core MT6592 processor

What really sticks out here for me are the free screen replacement, 36 month warranty plus free case. If Kazam can do all this why can’t everyone else?

Sony BSP10 Bluetooth Speaker

Sony_BSP10_Bluetooth_Speake

Whether you are going away on holiday, at a friends or relaxing in the garden, there are times when a portable speaker can be of real use to us.

Enjoy better quality audio from the larger, more powerful speaker and do not worry about it draining your smartphone battery, because lets face it, most of us carry our music on our phones today.

Of course the Bluetooth connection means no wires so it is nice and simple, helped even more by the one touch NFC pairing process.

The BSP10 is the latest speaker from Sony that packs punch thanks to a 5 Watt speaker.  This portable device is capable of producing sounds in excess of 100 decibels and also can be used as a handsfree speaker for your phone calls.

What is also unique about this speaker is not the fact that it comes with a nice little carry case in the box, but the fact that it can be charged with a Qi wireless charging pad.  Of course the traditional microUSB connection is present, but if you want the neatest and most modern of solutions, sit this on a Sony WCH10 charging pad from Sony (or others) to keep it charged or remove it when it is recharged.

In the following video we unbox it and show it in action.
