Poll results from our recent survey "Do you like the all new iPhone 6"

It seems like the marketing blurb called iPhone will continue for some more time. Most people would say that they are not interested in the extremely expensive iPhone but they would still buy it.

LG G2 mini - first impressions

A quick look and overview of the affordable smartphone LG G2 mini

LG G2 mini review
LG G2 mini


Today I will share my first impressions with the budget friendly smartphone LG G2 mini and we are going to take a quick look at the phone design and interface. And when I say budget I don't mean cheap, it is just much more affordable that the bigger LG G2 and almost twice as cheaper compared to the recently released but similarly equipped LG G3 S.

Some of you that are familiar with LG's smartphone model line have probably noticed that there is the G2 mini has very similar specs and price tag compared to the LG L90. The only significant difference is the position of the hardware buttons that on G2 mini are located on the back of the phone while on the L90 they have more traditional location on the two sides. LG L90 also has 3 sensor buttons under the screen while on the G2 mini these controls are all integrated in the Android interface and take some useful space from the display itself.

After the initial opinion that I previously shared with you about my new smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo now it is time for the full consumer review, including the unboxing video I made and some detailed information about this premium 5.5-inch phablet. 
So, it has been couple of weeks since I am using the Note 3 Neo and I am left with mixed feelings about this smartphone. Of course there is plenty to be liked about it but there also some gaps that make really bad impression when using the Note 3 Neo. That is why I decided to divide the pros and cons so it is more clear on what is worth it in this phone and what is not particularly good.

TouchWiz lag on powerful Samsung smartphones and phablets

TouchWiz interface lags even on Samsung smartphones and phablets with very powerful hardware

TouchWiz interface lag
TouchWiz interface lag
I always knew that the TouchWiz interface takes plenty of the hardware resources of Smasung's smartphones and that is why I've been avoiding them and using pure Android on devices like those from the Nexus series. The strange thing is that Samsung smartphones got better and better with very high hardware resources but still the same problem appears - they lag in most operations in the menu and that is something that I find quite annoying.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone - quick overview

Quick overview of the amazing smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo

Galaxy Note 3 Neo
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is one big phone... a good one

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is the our latest tool that will help us in the work process and a very capable successor of the Galaxy Nexus that I used until this week. 
To begin with I am still not sure how to categorize this device as many tecch experts put it in the phablet segment but after just couple of use I can say that the Note 3 Neo has nothing to do with tablets and it is basically an awesome smartphone with one very big screen. And though the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is just a little smaller than the regular Note 3 it is much more comfortable when using it on different occasions throughout the day.
