DGM T-814DH Android tablet
Everytime I come across an interesting deal online I share it here as I think our readers can benefit from that and find a certain product at a good price. Today I am going to focus your attention at another cheap Android tablet which is not very popular among Android fans and communities - DGM T-814DH.

This is basically a slim 8-inch (7.85 inches to be precise) tablet with dual-core processor and 8 GB for storage. The process power is delivered by 1.5 GHz processor which looks more then fine for a cheap tablet but it is coupled of just 512 MB of DDR3 RAM which is qutie low by any standards. The screen resolution is also quite low but considered fine for a tablet of this size - 1024x768 pixels.The operating system is Android 4.2.

Lenovo A536 budget smartphone

Review of the very capable budget Android smartphone Lenovo A536

In todays smartphone review I am going to present you one of the latest smartphone released by Lenovo - the A536. This basically is a budget oriented devices which has almost all the features that one may need on the go.

After I made a little research it seems that the A536 is going to be offered mainly in Eastern Europe and some parts of Asia. Actually It surprised me a little that this phone is not very popular around as it offers great stuff for under $200 - WiFi, GPS, large 5-inch screen and others.
I am not going to talk about the performance of this device as I don't have much ecperiencce with the phone itself and I wouldn't like to give you any misleading information.

Here is a short  (well not very short) unboxing video which will give you much better idea what is the Lenovo A536 smartphone all about:

DELL XPS 13 vs Latitude E7240 ultrabook video comparison

Video comparison with two of the top ultrabooks on the market - DELL XPS 13 and Latitude E7240 Ultrabook

Latitude E7240 ultrabook
DELL XPS 13 vs Latitude E7240 ultrabooks

There are plenty of discussions in internet about the best ultrabooks offered on the market today and that's why I decided to bring to your attention at two of the best performers - the amazing  DELL XPS 13 and the business oriented Latitude E7240.

Both these machines look and performance awesome and even though they have so many things in common they are also different in many aspects. Probably the biggest difference between these two are the screens which for the XPS is a 13-inch touchscreen display while on the business oriented Latitude E7240 we have a regular TFT panel. On the other hand probably the biggest similarity between these computers is the price, which is quite high for each one of them.

My personal preference goes for the Latitude E7240 as this is my choice when I was choosing new computer for work related purposes. I can say that I am pretty much impressed, just few minor downfalls ruin the perfect score for this very capable and yet mobile.  DELL XPS 13 is probably for those looking for a better media experience and the glare touchsccreen does the job just fine. Here is the video where you can see the  DELL XPS 13 and  Latitude E7240 head to head in a battle for the crown in the expensive ultrabook segment:

 DELL XPS 13 vs Latitude E7240 ultrabook video comparison

Verdict
In my opinion both these laptops are very good ans super productive. I currently own a Latitude E7240 and I am very pleased with it (using it for more than 3 years now, exceptional ultrabook). If it was my money I would go with the Latitude even though I like the XPS a lot. But I guess when discussing such high-end mobile computing devices it is up to personal preferences and needs.

2018 Update: The Latitude E7240 one of the greatest business laptops ever :)
