OppoNeo7

Oppo just unveiled a brand new Android smartphone from its Neo series (which also includes handsets like the Neo 5 and Neo 5s). Called Neo 7, the new device runs Oppo’s Color OS 2.1 (based on Android Lollipop), and has a mirror-like finish on the back. The Oppo Neo 7 sports a 5-inch display with a pretty low pixel resolution for today’s standards (540 x 960), while being powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. These details alone are already suggesting the fact that the handset will be affordable once it hits the market – though its official price hasn’t been unveiled. The new Oppo smartphone features LTE connectivity, dual SIM support, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support. Moreover, there’s an 8 MP camera with LED flash on the back, plus a 5 MP camera on the front (this can use the display as a flash for selfies). Weighing 141 grams and measuring 142.7 x 71.7 x 7.55 mm, the Oppo Neo 7 includes a 2420 mAh battery. On the official Neo 7 product page, Oppo mentions the fact that there’s a US version of the smartphone, alongside international and Indian models. The handset should be released starting the coming weeks. Via PhoneArena

Microsoft Lumia 535

I recently got a phone name Microsoft Lumia 535 because it looks promising to me. Anyway this device is sleek and it comes in different color. Price point for this device is pretty low granting it is an entry-level device; it is somehow appealing to the budget conscious people like me frankly. Anyway nothing much to say about the design it’s a typical smart phone with curvy edges, plastic feel on the back, very light like you know it’s cheap. Overall the phone has an acceptable design.

5″ IPS display of qHD (540 x 960 px) resolution, Gorilla Glass 3, 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, Adreno 302 GPU, Snapdragon 200 chipset, 1GB of RAM, Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim, 5MP autofocus camera with 480p video recording @30fps, 5MP front-facing camera, 8GB of inbuilt storage, microSD card slot, up to 128GB, Free worldwide voice-guided navigation with HERE Drive+, 15GB of free OneDrive storage, FM Radio, 1,905mAh Li-Ion battery.

I get to love the OS immediately because it feels simple its fast maybe because the device has a 1.2 GHZ quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU. Overall I love the device and I expect more in the coming update which is the Windows Mobile 10 I wish it will be the soonest.

iOS 9 release date and what to expect

Release date for IOS 9

Release date for the iOS 9 is coming and it will be on 16th September. That’s right, it will be two days form now; what to expect though with this update?  Well here are some to expect:

Better battery life – Apple promised a 2 hour battery life increase, and an additional Low Power mode to squeeze out that extra time needed to reach an outlet

Split-screen – finally, multitasking is reaching iOS. While true split-screen will be limited to devices with iPad Air 2-class hardware (minimum A8X processor, 2 GB of RAM), older iPhones and iPads will get a limited split-screen, allowing users to call in Notes, Messages, and some other apps with just a swipe, without closing whatever app they are currently working in.

Apple Maps Transit directions – Transit is a new feature, which will attempt to give users super-accurate information on transport routes and travel time – it even calculates the actual geographical size of the actual stations and airports you are departing from / arriving to in order to achieve this

Keyboard touchpad – marking text is about to get much easier with the virtual keyboard’s new touchpad functionality – tap and drag with two fingers over the keyboard and you will be able to fine-tune your cursor’s position anywhere on the text field

A better shift key – Ever since iOS 7’s visual update, complaints about how the virtual keyboard’s shift key’s state (on / off) is hard to read have been swarming the ‘net. Well, it will finally be much easier to read with a slight tweak in the design

Install size optimizations – iOS 9 will start distinguishing between app resources and will only download the ones you need. For example, when downloading a new app on a 64-bit capable iPad Air 2, the 32-bit assets of the app will not be downloaded, as they are technically just hogging storage space, without being of any use

Notes app update – Notes will get a much-needed rehash, bringing it up to speed on functions such as attaching images, links, creating checklists, and scribbling with a finger / stylus.

Search and Siri improvements – the Spotlight Search will be able to go deeper with its results, giving you game scores and videos straight from the results, while Siri will become contextually aware, allowing you to interact with it a bit more naturally (example: Who’s singing this song? How old is he?)

Performance improvements – of course, Apple promised some more performance tweaks.

Meizu now have PRO line up

Meizu now have PRO line up

Meizu is going PRO. On Friday, the company introduced its new brand of high-end handsets with Meizu VP Ni Lan blasting other smartphone manufacturers for producing phones that leave customers with a poor user experience. The Meizu executive added that the new PRO line is going to change that. On September 25th, the first Meizu PRO model will be unveiled. As previously rumored, it will be called the Meizu PRO 5.

The PRO 5 is a flagship device, and the latest rumors call for it to be available in two versions. One variant will be powered by the Exynos 7420 chipset, used in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The other model will have the MediaTek MT6797 SoC under the hood. That chip features a deca-core CPU.

The metallic uni-body Meizu PRO 5 is expected to be equipped with a 5.5-inch screen carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Meizu’s Founder Bai Yongxian has gone on record as saying that a QHD resolution screen is not logical on a smartphone, although Meizu’s next wave of high-end models will feature a 2K resolution display.
