Beyond the edge of the usual - this is exactly the slogan of the company, which describes the whole essence of the new flagship ZenFone 6. The device combines the innovative developments of Asus, offers top performance, an unusual and sophisticated appearance, and literally goes beyond the usual. The smartphone has received a frameless screen, which the brand proudly calls the NanoEdge, as well as a 48 MP rotating main camera and an incredible 5000 mAh battery. Actually, what else should offer a modern flagship, if not the best combination of features and prices.
Asus ZenFone 6 - the first flagship that just wowed us!
A frameless screen today does not surprise anyone, even in the mainstream segment, but Asus managed to create something more. The company calls smartphone’s display NanoEdge, since the display really goes from edge to edge and has a nano-frame. The ZenFone 6 display offers a wide color coverage of up to 100% DCI-P3, a high brightness of about 600 nits and, in fact, a large usable area - up to 92%. The screen is covered with a new tempered high-strength glass Gorilla Glass 6, and its size is 6.4 inches diagonally.
The phone has the top-end processor Snapdragon 855. This is the fastest and most advanced chipset ever produced by Qualcomm. It is not surprising that this processor comes in most of the flagships of 2019. Snapdragon 855 is so powerful that it is simply impossible to force it to slow down, both when performing normal tasks and in games. Any games on ultra-graphics settings feel great with this processor. If we talk about memory, then in ZenFone 6 64/256 GB is available on the internal drive and from 6 to 8 GB of RAM.
4000 mAh battery capacity for the modern flagship - something ordinary. However, Asus decided that this was not enough and installed a Zenfone 6 battery for as much as 5000 mAh. The manufacturer promises up to 2 days of autonomy with active use, up to a month of work in the standby mode on the 4G network, up to 33 hours of talk time on the 3G network and at least 21 hours of screen activity during surfing the Internet. Moreover, such a large battery can be charged with high current values, since the device supports Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology.
Like all modern flagships, ZenFone 6 has a high-quality assembled case, made of premium materials, namely, tempered glass Gorilla Glass 6 on both sides and a metal frame. The frame is made of high-strength alloy - amorphous metal. It is lighter than classic alloys by 20% and 4 times stronger. But the design of the smartphone is unique due to rotating camera, which acts both as a front and as the main one. The camera mechanism has a durable, high-precision stepper engine. It rotates the camera from one side to the other in just 0.5 seconds. It is also worth to mention that camera has a system of protection against damage - with the help of an accelerometer, a possible threat is determined (when the device falls) and the camera is brought to a safe position.
The very same photo module of the smartphone consists of two cameras for 48 MP Sony IMX586 and 13 MP cameras with a viewing angle of up to 125 degrees. Asus has so strongly asked the question of improving the photo capabilities of Zenfone 6, that everything cannot be described in detail. Therefore, we will provide all the information on the cameras in a short list.
Fourth Bayer filter with a pixel size of up to 1.6 microns with a matrix size of 2 inches;
High-aperture optics with an aperture value of f / 1.79;
Ultrafast phase autofocus 2X1 OCL + laser autofocus;
Elimination of distortion when shooting on a wide-angle lens with an overview of up to 125 degrees. Image correction occurs in real time;
Shooting in HDR + Echanced mode. Analogue of HDR + from Google, necessary to create colorful and bright photos with excellent detail in any shooting conditions;
Super Night mode. Used to create high-quality photos that are as close to reality as possible in low-light conditions;
Shooting at any angle. Thanks to the mechanism of the rotating camera, the smartphone allows you to take pictures at any angle from 0 to 180 degrees;
Incredible front camera. Due to the fact that the main camera acts as a front, then all of the above is true for a selfie camera.

Sony remained in the shadows for a long time, while competitors continued to attack the market with incredibly powerful flagships with advanced cameras. However, in 2019 and the Japanese manufacturer decided to buckle down and catch up. Company managed to get out of the current unfavourable situation, and at the same time change the naming of their own smartphones. Instead of the expected Xperia XZ4, the world saw the new Xperia 1 - so the company decided to show that it starts from scratch. And after all the truth, the novelty has received not only a new name but also one of the first among the flagships was able to show off the triple camera, as well as a display with a ratio of 21: 9, which is present only in Xperia 1!
Sony Xperia 1 - a new design, a new approach to smartphones creation.
Sony's devices have always tried to stand out from the rest, offering an angular design, symmetry, no teardrops or notch. However, this time the company tried even harder and released not just the updated last year’s flagship, but created the device from scratch. If competitors can offer displays with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, 19: 9 or 19.5: 9, then Sony went further and decided to use the filmmaking standard - an aspect ratio of 21: 9. This led to the fact that the smartphone turned out to be very elongated and narrow. Naturally, such a solution is full of advantages, since more information is placed in the timeline, it is more convenient to work with two applications at the same time, it is incredibly cool to watch movies on such a display. There are also disadvantages - unadopted content with such aspect ratio leaves large black bars on the sides of the screen. Also, the display has a resolution of 4K at a diagonal of 6.5 inches, and its OLED matrix supports HDR mode.
Despite the fact that Sony is the number one camera sensor manufacturer, year after year the brand was scolded due to the fact that Sony’s smartphones could not boast of high-quality shooting. This was due to the software, which for Xperia 1 and all subsequent devices of the company, it was decided to rewrite. Moreover, the brand first used a triple photo module in its own device, although Sony is still a conservative. All three cameras offer a resolution of 12 MP, but the purpose of all of them is different. The first 12 MP sensor works in tandem with a conventional 26 mm lens, which also has an optical image stabilizer. The second 12 MP module already offers a 56 mm lens, which provides a double optical zoom and also optical stabilization. Finally, the third 12 MP module is responsible for wide-angle photos, because the focal length of its lens is only 16 mm. In addition, Sony Xperia 1 can do fast-shooting with a frequency of up to 10 frames per second and autofocus, as well as automatic exposure. Another flagship can take high-quality photos taken in low light conditions and create cinematic clips with an aspect ratio of 21: 9 at 24 fps.
Not without improvements the video capabilities of the device. So, Xperia 1 supports recording video in 4K resolution with support for many features, including the new Cinema Pro mode. It includes the functions of professional shooting, as well as editing videos using special pre-installed software on your smartphone. The matrix of the main camera has an 8-bit color space (10-bit with FRC), supports ITU-R BT.2020, DCI-P3 color space and work with standard Illuminant D65 light sources.
Xperia 1 is a music flagship. The device offers stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos and Dynamic Vibration System (sound is complemented by pleasant vibration), Hi-Res Audio, LDAC, DSEE HX technology and stereo sound recording. The company did not forget about the technology Side Sence, which allows you to control the gadget with the help of sips and tapes on the side faces of Xperia 1. As for artificial intelligence, he is responsible for setting up the device for the specific needs of each user in a smartphone.
The last thing to say is about the presence of the Xperia 1 flagship Snapdragon chip 855. This information, as well as data on the memory of 6/128 GB, we decided to announce last, because each flagship has this, but all those functions what we have described above is unlikely to be found in the majority of top devices. Therefore, the price tag of just over $ 900 for the Xperia 1 is 100% justified!Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified with our promotions and new launches.
More recently, the company Redmi, which is a subbrand of Xiaomi, presented their two new flagships called Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. While everybody writes very positive reviews among bloggers, video bloggers and journalists about the products, we can’t agree more. Redmi managed to realize a kind of OnePlus 7 Pro, but with half of the price tag. However, there is one thing to note - these devices may not be launched outside China, at least it will not be with the same model name (as Xiaomi always does) . Everything is always well thought out by the company – and new items will be launched under the names of Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro. These are completely identical Redmi K20 and K20 Pro devices, only with a different branding on the case. And most importantly - you can buy them now!
Xiaomi Mi 9T - a review of an incredible smartphone with a very low price.
Today we will get acquainted with the younger version, namely the Mi 9T model, which differs from the Pro version by the processor and a couple of minor points.
The smartphone meets just incredible body, completely made of tempered glass. The most unusual thing in the design of the device is its color solutions since the smartphone itself has a gradient fill on the back cover with an interesting pattern that has never been found before. Xiaomi Mi 9T exists only in three colors: red and blue (the same picture), and also black (under Kevlar). Equally important is the fact that the device offers a frameless display with minimal frames, while even the bottom indent is only 3.8 mm, and for Android devices, this is a really good indicator.
The screen almost the entire front panel - still, as much as 92% of usable area. The display in the device is smart and fully corresponds to the status of the flagship: 6.39 inches, Super AMOLED, 2340x1080, 19.5: 9 format, Always-On-Display, brightness 600 nits, HDR10, contrast 60000: 1, 103.8% NTSC. On this screen, it is a pleasure to watch videos on YouTube, TV shows, flipping social network tapes, and play. You really can't do without games, since the Xiaomi Mi 9T offers a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor with powerful Kryo 470 cores and a clock frequency of up to 2.2 GHz. Directly for gaming performance, the graphics accelerator Adreno 618 is responsible, which copes with all the games, even without straining. A feature of the Snapdragon 730 processor is its energy-efficient process technology, amounting to 8 nanometers. It is really powerful, but at the same time it is the coolest chip, which consumes battery power as carefully as possible.
Triple main camera is the pride of Xiaomi Mi 9T. Naturally, in modern realities, it is impossible to surprise anyone with a triple photo module, but at its price, Mi 9T looks more attractive than its competitors. The main sensor of the camera in the smartphone is the Sony IMX582 at 48 MP with an aperture of f / 1.75. The sensor completely repeats the well-known Sony IMX586, it just does not know how to shoot video in 4K at 60 fps (only 30 fps). In addition to it, there is an 8 MP sensor with a double optical zoom and a 13 MP ultra-wide camera (overview up to 125 degrees). And this front-facing camera, which goes straight out of the Xiaomi Mi 9T, is exactly what is found in devices that are not cheaper than $ 600, and we are dealing with a smartphone that costs less than $ 400.
Type-C, NFC module, 3.5 mm jack, fast charging for 18 W, and a fingerprint scanner directly below the display, while also having an increased scan area of 15%. Everything is there, and the company has not forgotten about the battery for a long time - the device is equipped with 4000 mAh.
What we can say is even if not perfect smartphone but very close to it Insanely beautiful, powerful, modern, and even at a very attractive price - you can order it from us from 370 dollars! It's worth it, definitely!Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified with our promotions and new launches.
There are so many good smartphones on the market that we cant even count, cause each manufacturer tries to surprise by giving to the user the most interesting combination of features for reasonable money. We are used to the fact that brands such as Xiaomi, Meizu, Honor, and recently Samsung are the leaders in the matter of price/quality ratio. Today's article will be devoted to another cool gadget just from one of these manufacturers - it will be about Honor 20i. This is an interesting subflagman with a powerful processor, a triple camera, a truly frameless display that will not leave anyone indifferent, especially considering its low cost.
Honor 20i - the smartphone we deserve
Reducing the frame around the display is a good thing, although such a solution has one drawback. For someone its a drawback but for someone, it is not, but the fact remains that gadgets from different manufacturers have become similar to each other. SO honestly speaking Honor 20i is also easily confused with Huawei, Xiaomi, Meizu, Samsung and other devices, but at the same time Honor 20i offers almost the thinnest framework among all the competitors. The device is almost completely deprived of the edging around the display on three sides, leaving only a small indent from the bottom. The drop-like cut-out in the smartphone also looks neat. The back cover of the device attracts attention with its modulations, as well as the passing color from one to another. All in all, Honor 20i has three color options: blue-violet, red-purple, black. We can say with confidence that the device looks gorgeous in any color design, but if you want to enjoy the look straight, then you should consider the black version last.
Although due to the thin frames, modern smartphones are somewhat lost in uniqueness, yet the frameless design gives an incredible feeling from the screens of gadgets. Honor 20i has a large 6.21-inch display with a resolution of Full HD +, 19.5: 9 aspect ratio and a high-quality IPS matrix. The useful area of the screen is so large that it creates the feeling that you hold only the display itself in your hands. A bright, juicy, detailed picture on Honor 20i is guaranteed.
A large and high-quality display is not only content enjoyment but also an important thing for gaming. Honor 20i offers a sub-flagship chipset Huawei Kirin 710 with powerful cores and frequencies up to 2.2 GHz. Productive cores allow you to not slow down the Android system itself, in games the high FPS performance is ensured by the Mali-G51 video accelerator, while the 12-nanometer process technology perfectly saves battery power, spending it very carefully. To play at the highest level, as well as you can download a lot of interesting content on the device, Honor 20i provides from 4 GB to 6 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB of permanent memory with support for micro SD cards.
And the memory is really needed since the Honor 20i has a triple main camera, as well as a frontal one with a very high resolution. The main photo module consists of 24 MP + 2 MP (depth sensor) + 8 MP (wide). That is, you can take both regular high-resolution photos and portrait photos or wide-angle on your smartphone’s camera. A wide angle allows not only to capture as many objects as possible (the best solution for urban/natural landscapes), but also to make macro photos. The front camera also has a resolution of 32 MP - such sensors are rare even in flagships. Simply put, Honor 20i provides great photos and videos and provides unlimited photo opportunities for mobile shooting lovers.
Finally, I would like to mention the 3400 mAh battery, which provides the smartphone with long hours of operation. Economical processor, as well as the smart power consumption of Android OS 9 consume battery so that on average it lasts for least 1-1.5 days.
Currently, the Honor 20i smartphone can be pre-ordered on our website.

To buy today an advanced smartphone for little money - a trifling matter nowadays. While last year purchase of balanced gadget in terms of price and performance was an acquisition of a device made exclusively in China, these are different time now. A-class makers have become more loyal to customers and their fans, especially Samsung. The brand has already had quite a few cool smartphones with such price tags that sometimes it’s hard to believe that these are South Korean gadgets. Today we will discuss another such balanced device, the Galaxy A60 smartphone. The triple main camera, Snapdragon 675 and Infinity-O display - all in the best traditions of 2019!
Samsung Galaxy A60 - the best investment of own funds
The manufacturer began to attack the smartphone market with affordable gadgets from the beginning of 2019 and continues to do so to this day. At the end of April, Samsung presented a brand-new frameless device with a hole in the screen, a powerful sub flagman chip, a great design and an advanced camera. The novelty was named Galaxy A60 and it confidently took the position of one of the best smartphones for its money.
First of all, the device meets the user with a 6.3-inch PLS (analogue of IPS from Samsung) with a screen resolution of 2340x1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. The display is interesting in that it does not have either a norch or a drop-shaped cut, and the opening for the front camera in the upper left corner is neatly flaunted - it is almost imperceptible. Thanks to this solution, such a huge display could be placed in fairly compact case dimensions, which are 152.2 x73.9 x7.9 mm. The very same design of the device is typical for 2019 and offers several colour options: orange with a gradient that turns into peach, and also black, with overflows from dark blue to dark green. In general, the appearance of the device is great!
The device does not disappoint with stuffing too, since for performance responsible powerful, fresh Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 subflagman chip. It consists of Kryo 460 custom cores up to 2 GHz (8 pieces), as well as the Adreno 612 graphics accelerator. The processor supports all the latest technologies. The high-speed LTE protocol up to 600 Mbps, has an energy-efficient process technology of 11 nanometers, and is also great for heavy games. The memory of the Galaxy A60 is very decent: 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB constant, plus there is a slot for memory cards.
No less important advantage of the device is its triple camera. The Galaxy A60 has a 32 megapixel main sensor with a f / 1.7 lens aperture behind the backrest, an 8 megapixel wide-angle photo module (viewing angle of 123 degrees) and a 5 megapixel module used to measure the image depth. Naturally, there is a fast Dual Pixel autofocus, bokeh mode and shooting videos in 4K resolution. The front camera, mounted in the opening of the display, offers a resolution of 16 MP with an aperture of f / 2.0.
Although the Galaxy A60 does not offer a fingerprint scanner in the display, its fingerprint scanner on the back cover is more accurate and fast. Another device boasts a Type-C connector, Bluetooth 5th version, the presence of an NFC-module and a capacious 3500 mAh battery. And all this, Samsung estimates very cheaply, since it is worth paying about 350 dollars for a given set of characteristics. This is almost equal to the cost of some Xiaomi with approximately equal parameters, and this is an excellent indicator of a balanced price/performance combination.Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and be the first to get notified with availability of this gadget.You can also order at your website and become the first owner of this novelty!
Samsung continues to delight users with brand-new smartphones with excellent parameters and at an affordable price. Previously, Samsung did not practice this and evaluated its devices very expensive, but the increased competition in the market forced the brand to reconsider its pricing views. The new smartphone Galaxy A70 is another confirmation of the fact that now you can buy Korean devices today without thinking. Cute, advanced, inexpensive - now all these advantages are not only Chinese smartphones, but also Korean ones.
Galaxy A70 - review and features of one of the best subfragments
The appearance of the smartphone is typical for 2019, because the device offers a stylish glass case and a completely frameless screen with a small teardrop-shaped cutout. The device is interesting in that it can be purchased in several interesting colors: coral, white, black with a gradient, and also blue.
The screen at the device is just a flagship level. A large diagonal of 6.7 inches, a resolution of 2400x0180 pixels, an aspect ratio of 20: 9 and an amazing AMOLED matrix. The display has a very accurate color reproduction with high brightness, saturation and contrast of the image. The Galaxy A70 processor is no less interesting since it is a sub-flagship solution with sufficiently high power. The performance of the Snapdragon 675 chipset is enough for all tasks, including demanding games of the latest generations. And in order for the processor to cope with all the tasks, it has as much as 6 GB of RAM. The device offers a constant memory of 128 GB, which can be expanded with memory cards.
It is impossible not to agree with the fact that in modern devices the camera is very important. And both the main and the front are important. Galaxy A70 offers a 32 megapixel + 5 megapixel + 8-megapixel main triple photo module. The main sensor has a high-aperture lens with f / 1.7, and the other two lenses with f / 2.2. The main sensor is designed to create photos with high resolution and detail in virtually any shooting conditions. A 5-megapixel sensor is needed to create portrait photos with a blurred background (bokeh), and an 8-megapixel sensor paired with a wide-angle lens provides frames with a viewing angle of about 120 degrees. The front camera is no less good since its resolution is 32 MP.
The undoubted advantage of the gadget is its huge 4500 mAh battery with support for fast charging. Also, the Galaxy A70 has an NFC, USB Type-C, 3.5 mm jack module, Bluetooth 5.0 and a fingerprint scanner directly below the display. Fingerprint under the display is a new trend in the world of mobile technologies and the Galaxy A70 corresponds to the latest trends in technological fashion. Most importantly, you can buy all this just at $400, which for A-brand is definitely not an exorbitant value.Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and be the first to get notified with availability of this gadget.You can also order at your website and become the first owner of this novelty!
The other day the world of mobile gadgets has received two more powerful flagships - OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. For the first time, the brand decided to show two top devices at once within the same event, cause previously company produced 2 devices per year with a difference of 4-5 months. In today's article, we would like to tell you about the cameras of OnePlus 7 Pro, since this particular model must compete with such monsters of photography as the Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus. The device received a triple main camera, as well as a front-facing periscope camera. In the DXOMARK rating, OnePlus 7 Pro is in third place with 111 points, while only one point was missing from first place.
OnePlus 7 Pro - a detailed overview of the flagship cameras
Characteristics of the main camera:
Main photo module: 48Mp Sony IMX586 (output photo size 12 MP), focal length 26 mm, aperture, f / 1.6 aperture and OIS
Wide-angle photo module: 16 megapixel sensor, lens with f / 2.2 aperture;
Telephoto lens: 8 megapixel sensor, focal length 78 mm, lens with f / 2.4 aperture and OIS;
Laser / PDAF autofocus;
Dual LED flash;
4K / 60fps video (4K / 30fps at default settings).
As the main sensor in the smartphone uses 48 megapixel sensor from Sony, which since the beginning of 2019 managed to make a lot of noise on the Internet. The main feature of the sensor is that in the 48-megapixel mode, it can only be photographed with manual settings, because in automatic mode such a large number of megapixels are used to achieve other results. Firstly, the Quad-Bayer technology combining 4 pixels to 1, which reduces the resolution to 12 megapixels, but at the expense of this increases the dynamic range, noise is reduced, color rendering and detailing are improved. Secondly, the combined 4-in-1 pixel allows you to shoot at night in the maximum wax quality. Experts from DXOMARK are mentioning that the OnePlus 7 Pro really shoot with a wide dynamic range, keeping the details in both highlights and shadows. Excellent exposure, good contrast in almost any shooting conditions - all these are the advantages of a new flagship.
No less good apparatus and in the matter of portrait shooting with blurring the background. The smartphone pleasantly blurs the background, while correctly separating the object from the background. The device is not losing to the two leaders Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus. Also, OnePlus 7 Pro has a 3x optical zoom without loss of quality. A telephoto lens shows good detail, color reproduction and noise level, although in all these parameters the telephoto lens is slightly inferior to that of the main photo module. The ability to shoot with an optical zoom without blurring the photo provides a 4-axis optical stabilizer. Finally, for shooting landscapes, both urban and natural, there is a 16 megapixel wide-angle camera with a viewing angle of around 120 degrees.
Front camera specifications:
Periscope-type front camera;
1/3-inch Sony IMX471 sensor with a resolution of 16 megapixels and 1 micron pixels;
25 mm equivalent focal length;
f / 2 diaphragm;
If the quality of photos and videos OnePlus 7 Pro is in the top three, losing only 1 point Huawei and Samsung, then the front camera cant really compete with the leaders. This is due to the fact that in the selfie-camera of the gadget there is no autofocus - it is fixed. As for the other parameters, such as exposure, detailing and color rendition, then everything is fine with the device. Also, the selfie-camera produces a photo with a normal noise level, although in low light this artifact begins to appear stronger.
Summing up, it is worth saying that the OnePlus 7 Pro has got really advanced cameras. This is noted by both bloggers and specialists who have already managed to conduct large-scale testing of the device. The device closes the top three on photo and video capabilities and it says a lot.Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and be the first to get notified with availability of this gadget.You can also place pre-order at your website and become the first owner of this novelty!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2019) and Galaxy Tab S5e (2019) - Review and features of new attractive tablets at affordable prices
If you thought that the tablet market has been rather quiet, then this is not at all the case at all with the new tablet launch from Samsung a direct confirmation of this. Tablet PCs, as well as smartphones, are constantly evolving, and current tablets also boast modern design, high-performance hardware, cool displays, etc. In today's review, we will look at two models from Samsung, one belonging to the budget class, and the second to the mid-range. The devices are really interesting, so let's take a closer look at their characteristics and cost.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) - review and features
Screen: 10.1-inch diagonal, IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, 16:10;
Processor: Exynos 7904, 14-nm process technology, 2 Cortex-A73 cores + 6 Cortex-A53 cores;
Memory: 2/32 GB + memory cards;
Camera: 8 MP main with autofocus and f / 2.0 + 5 MP front (fixed) with f/2.2;
Battery: 6150 mAh;
Dimensions and weight: 245 x 149 x 7.5 mm, 460 g.
Although the tablet market is gradually declining, it will not completely disappear. However, all these negative factors do not affect Samsung’s policy and they continue their work on tablets. The company spends a lot of effort on the appearance of its own tablets, which you cannot miss. The Galaxy Tab A 2019 is housed in an aluminium back cover with a thin plastic insert for antenna output. The IPS display is not of the highest quality, however, with the affordable price, such a decision not to put in higher quality display can be forgiven.
We also have no special complaints about the processor, because Exynos 7904 is similar to Snapdragon 450, which in turn is not inferior to Snapdragon 625 - yes, not a performance monster. The only thing that depresses it is the small 2 GB RAM, although in 2019 you need at least 3 GB. Nevertheless, you can play on a device in modern mid-level apps without any problems, and two stereo speakers can provide high-quality sound. Moreover, due to the Dolby Atmos technology, deep and surround sound is achieved.
A good autonomy for the device is attached to a 6150 mAh rechargeable battery, and its attractiveness lies in a fairly affordable price tag.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e (2019) - review and features
Screen: 10.5-inch diagonal, Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels, 16:10;
Processor: Snapdragon 670, 10-nm process technology, 2 Kryo 360 cores up to 2.0 GHz + 6 Kryo 360 cores up to 1.6 GHz;
Memory: 6/128 GB + memory cards;
Camera: 13 MP main with autofocus and f / 2.0 + 5 MP front (fixed) with f / 2.0;
Battery: 7040 mAh;
Dimensions and weight: 245 x 160 x 5.5 mm, 400 g
Galaxy Tab S5e turned out to be very attractive, if you compare the latest pro tablets from Apple. Looking at the device, the beauty immediately becomes clear – sitting in front of you is not a casual looking device, but a very solid combination of design and hardware. I like the fact that the frame is very thin, but not too much, and they are also from all sides of the same size. Therefore, in general terms, everything looks very good and obviously more expensive than its value.
The beauty of the device not only with its appearance, but built with powerful, yet energy efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 670. The feature of the chipset is that it is really inexpensive and belongs to the segment slightly above average, but it also allows play heavy toys in high graphics settings. Considering that the Galaxy Tab S5e has a solid amount of memory, this is both a gaming and multimedia device at the same time.
Very good, as for a tablet, a camera, a capacious battery, a stunning display, high-quality stereo sound indicate one thing - the purchase of this device is exactly justified!
For the first 4 months of 2019 Huawei has released a lot of gadgets, including low-end, mid-priced and flagship solutions.

Huawei P30 Lite
True to good old tradition, in 2019 Huawei has introduced three flagships, or rather one sub-flagship and two top solutions. Huawei P30 Lite is very different from its two older brothers, so it also has the Lite prefix. Having more modest characteristics, the device is not just some cheap device, having attracted a lot of attention. Outwardly it does look lot like Huawei P30 and this is its undoubted advantage as visual component determines almost 50% of the success of the device. Hardware in the device is productive, the Kirin 710 is placed somewhere between Snapdragon 660 and 710, and the device also offers at least 4/128 GB of memory. For gamers, GPU Turbo 2.0 technology is provided, which accelerates the video core and makes the gaming process more comfortable.
The device is equipped with a convenient 6.15-inch IPS-screen, matrix of which has NTSC color space coverage up to 96%, high brightness and contrast. The display occupies about 85% of the usable area, has 2.5D roundings at the protective glass and a high quality oleophobic coating. Huawei didn’t cut down on P30 Lite’s on photo capabilities, equipping it with a triple main camera. The main Sony IMX576 sensor has a resolution of 24 MP, high-aperture optics f / 1.8, and in addition to it, there is an 8 MP ultra-wide camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. The front of the smartphone is equipped with a 32 megapixel front camera with support for face recognition technology. Battery of the device is at 3340 mAh, with support for fast charging, 3.5 mm headphone jack, Type-C port and a fingerprint scanner, located on the rear panel.
Given the cost of the Huawei P30 Lite, which is in range of $ 300, it is really affordable smartphone with excellent features. He has a wide range of photo opportunities, there is a game potential, etc. Conclusion: we have a device with an optimal price / quality ratio.
Although the P30 is a flagship model, it’s still a simplified version of the P30 Pro. However, the difference will not be noticeable if you are not an ardent fan of mobile photography and you do not need a crazy zoom or a huge number of camera sensors. The smartphone looks expensive and prestigious, and it has a lot of various interesting colors. The device is powered by top end processor Kirin 980 with 6/8 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB of built in memory. Although the device supports GPU Turbo 2.0 technology, at this stage it may not be needed for gaming – since all hardware is already at the maximum graphics settings.
The company decided not to equip the smartphone with an inconvenient overall display and relied on a 6.1-inch high-quality OLED. HDR, DCI-P3 modes, as well as brightness up to 650 nits are all available in the smartphone. Also, due to the use of the OLED, it was possible to place the fingerprint scanner directly under the display. The photo capabilities of the device are more striking, since the main camera of Huawei P30 consists of three photo modules. The combination of the SOny IMX600 40 MP + 16 MP ultra-wide module + 8 MP telephoto module gives unlimited field for creativity. The main 40 MP sensor is unique in that it has not a standard RGGB matrix, but a new RYYB, which allows you to capture even more light. The 16 megapixel module allows you to shoot with a viewing angle of 120 degrees, and the 8 megapixel module provides a 3xd optical zoom. Super slow motion video can be shot with the main camera a frame rate of up to 960 fps in 720p resolution. The front camera has a resolution of 32 MP and it is great for creating high-quality selfies. Stereo sound with support for Dolby Atmos technology, dual GPS, NFC module, Type-C version 3.1, as well as a 3650 mAh battery that supports fast charging up to 22.5 watts. Considering that Huawei is far from a cheap brand, the P30 sells from $ 700 on average, which is very reasonable for its specs and appearance.
Huawei P30 Pro
And this is a real monster both in cameras, and in performance, and in autonomy. Cardinally, the version with the Pro prefix does not differ in appearance from the P30, but it is delivered by a powerful camera unit and almost no frames around the display. Above and below they are so minimal that the smartphone had to be equipped with a display that also served as a conversational speaker. The processor in the smartphone is the same Kirin 980 with 8 GB of RAM, but the constant memory can be 128/256 or as much as 512 GB. OLED screen with a diagonal of 6.47-inch, its useful area is almost 90%, there is support for HDR and DCI-P3. A fingerprint scanner is also located under the display.
The camera is what sold the device, as no one has yet had such a combination of software and hardware. The main Sony IMX650 RYYB-sensor at 40 MP is supplemented with a 20 MP ultra-wide camera, 8 MP telephoto camera and ToF depth sensors. The smartphone is unique in that it offers 5x optical, 10x hybrid zoom without loss of quality, as well as 50x digital zoom. The qualitative approximation is due to the optical stabilization of the sensor. The Huawei P30 Pro photo is doing great, because the Time of Flight module is responsible for determining the depth of field. Slow-mo recording and front camera resolution are similar to those of the Huawei P30.
Huawei P30 Pro has a two-position high-speed GPS-module, Type-C 3.1, NFC. The smartphone offers a huge 4200 mAh battery with support for fast charging at 40 W, as well as the presence of wireless charging at 15 W with a reverse charging function. Incredible camera, top-end hardware, gorgeous screen and appearance - they ask for all this stuff from $ 1,000. The only “imperfection” you can find is that it has no stereo and no 3.5 mm headphone jack
Huawei Mate X - folding smartphone tablet
You have probably noticed that lately, manufacturers have firmly taken up the idea of bending devices, which in one movement, turns a smartphone into a tablet and vice versa. But the idea is far from new, but only in 2019 technology allowed to implement something this interesting. Folding device Huawei Mate X is a combination of all the most advanced developments of the brand in one place. Its uniqueness is that in a fully unfolded form, its display has a diagonal of 8 inches with an aspect ratio of 8: 7.1 (almost square). Folding the device in half, the tablet turns into a smartphone with two screens: the first has a diagonal of 6.6 inches with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, and the second is 6.38 inches with a ratio of 25: 9. Considering the fact that Huawei Mate X offers the flagship a solid Kirin 980 with 8/512 GB of memory, a triple camera 40 MP + 8 MP + 16 MP, a 4500 mAh battery, it becomes clear that there is nothing better in the market. Of course, there is a certain similarity of the Galaxy Fold, but there is a different concept, due to which Huawei Mate X looks more impressive. The only drawback of the device is its price of 2600 dollars.
Honor 10i and Honor 20i - flagship of Huawei sub-brand.
Honor 10i and 20i are not top devices and they belong to the future flagship Honor 20 as well as the Huawei P30 Lite to the P30. Moreover, the Honor 10i and 20i are unwritten copies of the Huawei P30 Lite, and all devices are similar both in appearance and performance. Based on this, we only note those moments in which the Honor 10i / 20i differ from the P30 Lite:
The battery has grown to 3400 mAh;
Display size increased to 6.21 inches;
There are new colors of the case.
You probably have a question, how much, Honor has released two identical devices under different names? The answer is simple: Honor 10i is designed for the Russian market, and Honor 20i is more focused on Chinese consumers. At the same time at the price of gadgets do not differ, costing about $ 300, which equates to the cost and the original Huawei P30 Lite.
Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro - rumors about autumn flagships of the brand
By the end, we will tell you about what is known today about the future flagships of Huawei, which it will present in the autumn of 2019. Smartphones will differ from each other, but what exactly, we cannot yet say. Therefore, talking about rumors with regards to the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, we will not divide them into two different gadgets but will highlight the situation as a whole.
Two main leaks with regards to gadgets reveal some details about the batteries and the new system of optical image stabilization in cameras. So, it is reported that the line of Huawei Mate 30 will receive a new layout of internal elements called Subtract Like PCB. In practice, this will allow devices to have more capacious batteries and it is possible that with the same dimensions (as in the Mate 20), the capacity of the battery will increase up to 5000 mAh. The technology of placing the SLP components is already being put into practice by such mega-corporations as Samsung and Apple in their latest devices. Huawei has long been at the same level with these leading players in the mobile market, so it is not surprising that status obliges the Chinese brand to follow the latest achievements of progress.
The second leak concerns the new fluid optics for the flagship Mate 30 Mate 30 Pro. The technology itself is not new, and the combination of two types of liquids in the lens cavities was already demonstrated by Philips in 2004. The technology is very specific because only 14 years later, manufacturers decided to resume work in this direction. Huawei is an innovator in the smartphone market and not only, so the appearance of the new liquid stabilization system in the Mate 30 and 30 Pro is guaranteed.
The essence of the technology lies in the fact that the design of a liquid lens includes the lens itself, inside of which there are two liquids with different densities, because of which they are immiscible (most often it is water and oil). By changing the electrical potential, the camera device can focus and stabilize the picture. The advantage of the new optics over the classical one is that it changes the focal length over a wider range, focuses faster on the object and does not have any mechanical elements. That is, the new optics is more versatile (only one camera can replace the wide-angle, the usual module and the camera), a rapid and reliable. Perhaps the success of Huawei in this field will lead to the fact that the multicam in smartphones will disappear and we will again be able to admire devices with one, maximum of two camera eyes.Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and be the first to get notified with availability of this gadget.You can also place pre-order at your website and become the first owner of this novelty!

The only thing that the new Pocophone Redmi will borrow is the low price that will have to attract millions of customers.
Most importantly, Redmi brand has everything necessary for releasing advanced device that both Xiaomi’s fans and fans of “value for money” will want to buy. And Redmi is famous for releasing of decent devices and the brand is recognizable all over the world. Let's quickly go through the main characteristics of Redmi X, which will offer us:

The first thing that attracts in the device is the large and high-quality screen that will be at the level of the displays installed in the Xiaomi Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE. We don’t have to say anything about the processor, everything is clear, but the presence of a triple camera indicates that the company is preparing a real camera phone. So far, it is not known what kind of zoom will be in the smartphone, two or five times, but one thing is certain: the device will be able to make high-quality photos in standard, tele- and wide-angle modes. The presence in the smartphone of the NFC module also makes it clear that Redmi wants to attract as much attention as possible to the new product, and that the sales of the device will not be limited to the Chinese region.
Very little is known about the appearance of the smartphone, but the official video with the device opens the curtain of mystery. From the obvious - the body of the smartphone will receive a combination of metal and tempered glass, and color solutions will include black, red, a few more gradient solutions. Redmi X will also appear in the Marvel comics colouring. On the back of the device will be a triple main camera and nothing more, as the fingerprint scanner moves under the display. The entire front of the smartphone will consist only of the screen, since the front camera will receive a pop-up mechanism.
