Review of the Jet Black iPhone 7 – Looks and Design focussed

Jet black iPhone 7: User Experience

In September 2016, Apple announced the launch of another amazing phone- the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Soon after this announcement, people waited in anticipation and just couldn’t hold their breath to grab the glossy iPhone model. However, iPhone manufacturers indicated issues in producing mass quantities of handsets. Reports by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo threw light on serious production problems along with delays in shipping facilities. Inside sources from Apple blamed the unfavourable weather and mechanical issues for the shipping inconveniences.
Amidst such circumstances, about 60% to 70% of iPhone 7 handsets had successfully passed the Apple’s quality and standard test. Although the model had been available since its launch, yet the glossy and beautiful jet black colour sold out the handsets, much before it was released in markets. According to Apple sources, they had to sell the phones to meet the pre-order period demand. Thus, those looking for the iPhone soon after its release in September, were asked to wait for three to five weeks to get the phone. And then citing shipping and production issues, Apple officially postponed its shipping to November. Until then, the model was available only in limited numbers in stores.
Jet Black was a buzz among the iPhone fans and other Smartphone users for its fine glossy mirror finish, which gave a bezel effect on the phone. For the first time, iPhone had a no-border device. This however meant a complicated manufacturing process, which took beyond the stipulated time.
After all the hassles, when the phone was finally available in sufficient quantities in the market, users were relieved. They greeted the iPhone with great enthusiasm and were more than happy to show-off their new Apple device. And while using the phone, people gradually realised that the best feature of the model had the worst outcome. They were definitely not happy with the scratches on the glossy finishing of their phone.

Apple knew about this and the brand came up with a clear disclaimer stating that the glossy finishing has been achieved through a 9-step anodization and polishing process, which made it prone to scratches. Although the phone’s surface was as hard as the other anodized Apple models; its shinny finishing had high chances of developing micro-abrasions, with use. It warned its users of the potential threat and suggested protecting the phone with a case.
In spite of a fair and clear warning, the iPhone Jet Black users bought the model, ignored the statement and went ahead flaunting with their new phone and boasting its unique features. Gradually, after using it for a month or two; people started facing problems with the look and design- features that they had been proud off, earlier. The phone developed scratches on the Jet Black finish; however, it was not that noticeable in normal light conditions. The scratches were only visible at certain light angles, in the presence of bright light. Besides the glossy finishing, the phone looks great, and with all other features; serves excellent usability.

Review of Huawei Honor 8 Singapore

huawei honor 8 price

The Honor series of Huawei had some pretty interesting offerings but the one that amazed the people most was 2015’s Honor 7. That mobile phone was very good in performance only except in the department of the battery where the performance was seriously very poor. Now literally after one year in October 2016, Huawei came up with their latest addition in the Honor series, Huawei Honor 8.

This successor of Honor 7 has been priced high $500 range in Singapore thus it is placed in the upper tier of the mid budget smartphone range. Due to the price range in which it falls, the phone is directly in the line of cross fires between OnePlus 3 and Asus Zen Fone 3, both of which has proven to be excellent choices for people.

There is no denying that Huawei Honor 8 Singapore has some excellent features and specifications. But can it be helmed as a giant killer in the market? Well, there is only one way to find out. Let’s review this newly launched model from Huawei and find out.

huawei honor 8 price in singapore

Design and Build up:

In Honor 8, the usual design  that we have seen  for the other Huawei phones have been completely overhauled and new interesting features have been added which do not only provide the smartphone with a striking look but also increases its aesthetic value. There are few elements that have been conceived from Samsung A-series of 2016 like the metal frame sandwiched in between two sheets of glass. Though these gives a wonderful look to the phone but it also makes the phone very slippery which you will start to feel within few days of buying the phone. There is another problem, finger imprints all over the phone which is caused due to the slippery surface of the mobile phone and it does actually make Honor 8 look dull.

The Honor 8 has a 5.2inch 1080p full HD display along with a pixel density of 423 pixels per inch. The text in Honor 8 is razor sharp, the colours are very vibrant, the angles for viewing are highly commendable and you will also customise your display by going to the display settings panel. The phone also has tiny borders in either side of its screen which makes the Honor 8 highly convenient for one hand use. This newly launched smartphone is also very light in weight at 153g thus you will never have to feel the burden.

Specifications and features:

The phone has a ton of most amazing features and there is no denying in it. Honor 8 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core KIRIN 950 SoC processor with the aid from 4GB RAM. Though the number of the KIRIN 950 SoC processor is still not on par with the Snapdragon 820 processor but if you are comparing on the real world usage then it will be hard to tell the difference between these two chipsets.

Honor 8 also has an internal memory of 32GB and it can be expanded to 128GB by using a micro SD card. The smartphone runs on a 3000mAh non-removable battery and the battery department surely has improved a lot than that of its predecessor.

As far as camera is concerned, the Honor 8 comes with a 12MP rear camera and a front camera of 8MP.The phone captures truly amazing picture and it can also be customised to only focus on the objects within 2 metres of the photographer by blurring the background. The phone also supports 4k media playback and also accepts 3G/4G nano SIM.

The Honor 8 is no doubt one of the best phones in the market and is on par with its competitors OnePlus 3 and Asus Zen Fone 3. Though the slippery body needs to be improved but overall this smartphone is a real winner.

Gadgets to Look Out for in 2017

With 2016 behind us, it is time to look ahead and see what is on the horizon for gadgets. There is already huge anticipation for all sorts of new and emerging technology, such as virtual reality tech, new smartphones and new smart wear. This post is going to showcase some of the most innovative and hotly anticipated pieces of technology that will be hitting the markets this year. This is far from an exhaustive list, but the gadgets discussed here are some of the most likely to hit stores this year, as well as the most exciting.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung’s eighth iteration of their flagship smartphone, the Galaxy, is expected to launch in springtime this year. Although the company has remained relatively tight-lipped about new features, you can expect notable updates and upgrades in both software and hardware. Something we do know, though, is that Samsung will integrate a new digital assistant into the S8 – Viv. This new artificial intelligence has been created by the same team that were involved with Siri, so it should be a solid addition to the Galaxy S8.

iPhone 8

It’s hard to think of a world before the iPhone, thanks to its flawless integration into everyday living. With that said, this has made it difficult for Apple to break the mould with the iPhone. Their latest model, the iPhone 8, looks to bring in a little innovation to their smartphone. With an all-glass design, organic LED displays and removal of the home button, the iPhone is growing into an entirely new beast. Moreover, 2017 is the ten-year anniversary of the iPhone, so expect some big things to come from Apple in the coming months.

Google’s Smartwatch

Tech giant Google has been trying to integrate their own smartwatch into the market over the past year or so. As of yet, they have seen little uptake for their Android Wear watches, but that is all expected to change in 2017. Google intends to beef up current software for their own smartwatch, which could launch any time this year.

Windows 10 Virtual Reality

Windows’ current operating system is expected to receive a substantial update early this year, geared towards virtual reality headset compatibility. This update opens new doors for VR headset usage – at the moment your only realistic choice is the Oculus rift, which costs $600. With this update, headsets from companies like Dell and Lenovo will be available on the market for as little as $300.

Nokia 6: First Android Smartphone from the Nokia Brand

Age old Nokia brand is going to launch its first Android Smartphone in early 2017. The brand’s present legal owner, HMD Global, confirmed its availability only in Chinese markets. HMD sources also stated that Nokia is soon to launch its Smartphone series in other global markets including India. The Chinese-exclusive Nokia model will be available in JD.com.
With 5.5 inches display, 4GB RAM and 16MP camera, Nokia’s first Android model will give a tough competition to the already established Smartphone brands like Samsung, Sony, Lenovo and other industry players. According to industry sources, its unique design and display features are some of the stand-out factors. However, soon after launch the brand is expecting a shortfall in sales, due to certain not-so-good specifications.
The news about Nokia 6 launch came through a press release on 8th January, 2017 on the website of HMD Global. It crossed-out the rumours of MWC debut by few more months. However, Nokia fans need to hold their patience for physically getting the phone, as it’s more specific to the Chinese marketplace.

Its 5.5 inches display provides 70.7% screen-to-body ratio to the users. The Nokia phone is 154×75.8×8.4mm in dimension. Light in weight (169g), the phone easily fits into the pockets. It is easy to carry and handle. Also, it has provision for dual SIM (Nano SIM and dual stand-by).

Nokia 6 has a unibody design, which comes from using 6000 aluminium series. The home button features a fingerprint scanner. The phone also boasts of high resolution of 1080×1920 pixels and has 403ppi pixel density. It facilitates multi-touch and is additionally protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Camera is another noteworthy quality of the Nokia phone. The 16MP, f/2.0 primary camera has dual tone or dual-LED flash and enables phase detection autofocus. Some other camera features include touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, and HDR. Using the camera, users can capture videos worth 1080p@30fps. The phone’s secondary camera is 8MP and gives a picture quality of 1080p. Its dual amplifiers and Dolby Atmos technology accounts for louder sound.
The phone is also equipped with other extraordinary features. It has fingerprint, gyro, proximity and compass sensors. The phone allows multiple messaging formats from SMS and MMS to Push Mail, Email and IM. It runs on HTML5 browser and comes with in-built tools like document viewer, photo and video editor.
Nokia 6 is based on Android 7.0 Nougat software, which delivers a user-friendly experience. Besides the basic software modules like in other Smartphones, HMD Global has indicated in offering a different experience, with an entirely new set of software tools and dynamic applications.
With the above features and some new technology, Nokia’s Android debut is a mid-range phone, costing yet to finalise.

As of now, HMV has no plans of expanding the launch and availability of the new Nokia Smartphone in other markets. However, the phone will be easily accessible to the world through JD.com

An amazing phone with exclusive design, attractive features and excellent functionality, Galaxy S7 Edge is truly wonderful. Among other features, its unibody design, low-light performance camera, quick tools and customised apps make it a must-have phone, especially for the smartphone crazy people.

Look and Feel
With a slightly curved and melted 3D glass, Samsung has introduced an entirely new look, feel and design in its S7 series. The 5.5 inches phone comes in a sleek design along with narrow metal edges and features quad-HD display. Its dual curved edges make it handy and easy-to-manage. The uniqueness of the design lies in auto-reflections by the curved glass. The remarkable screen enhances the visual appeal of texts, films, images and games. Swiping through the gallery, its pixels are just invisible to the naked eye. While Apple iPhone 7 had to develop a “9-step anodization and polishing process” to achieve its glossy Jet Black finish, Samsung’s design is simplistic: Gorilla Glass 4 on top of a glossy piano black finish.

With such software features, S7 Edge is flexible and innovative.

Real-time selfie, animated GIF and dual-camera altogether sums into an overwhelming experience of the new Samsung S7 model.
