Are Tablets a Dying Breed?

Are Tablets a Dying Breed?




We would be hard pressed to give an exact answer on this common question but we do see that many major manufacturers are “giving up” on this category. More specifically, we are seeing a decline in profitability due to declining interest in the tablet market. The R&D speed has slackened and manufacturers are discontinuing well known tablet models such as the Venue slates when Dell decided to put an end to tablet line ups.

The reason for declining tablet sales compared to smart phones is because people tend to hold onto their tablets a lot longer than they do with smart phones. The tablet market was young and full of questions for manufacturers. They were unsure how often consumers would “upgrade” to the newest model. The demographic behavior in this field seems to be more visible now. For many manufacturers, tablet development and efforts are actually quite underwhelming because of little returns.

Another reason why tablet’s are on their way out is because of over-saturation. Consumers are demanding less and less as there are already a ton of choices and there is only so much a tablet can actually do. This was the main reason Dell decided to end the Venue tablet’s life.

The Dell Venue 8 7000 was one of the best high end Android tablet of the time. It still is today. IT features OLED displays, and a RealSense camera. In all honesty, despite usage of tablets in multimedia senses and for other personal usages, no one really needs a tablet when phablets are in the market that can do so much more on top.

Tablets are also trailing behind iPad’s and will never catch up to the iOS ecosystem in one important aspect. App support. Both Android and Apple stores have vast numbers of apps but Android still pales compared to App optimized support and sheer number in the iOS ecosystem.

The differentiating factor is too little between a big powerful phablet phone one would shell out thousands for over time compared to a 700$ tablet device.

At this time, we see that Android Tablets are actually becoming something else now. Enter Chromebooks. Google has updated Chrome OS to support Android Apps which would allow Chromebooks with touch screen devices to become a much more functional hybrid tablet. We would eventually see 2 in 1 detachable Chromebooks coming out soon.

The Tablet market is dying over time, but this does not mean that everyone thinks they are pointless. Many have found good usage for their beloved tablets purchased recently or years ago. All in all, they have their own place but in the eyes of manufacturers there is simply not enough demand.

Galaxy S8 to Have 6.2 Inch Bezel-less Display

Galaxy S8 to Have 6.2 Inch Bezel-less Display


Samsung is reportedly set to launch the GALAXY S8 “PLUS” variant in 2017. This ‘plus’ model features 6.2 inches of bezel-less displays.

Most information out there are all speculati
on based on various leaks and insider look at associated manufacturers. We are also still a few months away from any official statements Samsung has made for its S8. We have heard of a beefy AI coming and the home button disappearing along with the head phone jack.

Recently an online publication site known as “The Investor” suggested that Samsung will be releasing two versions of the S8 while the latter is an attempt to appeal to consumers who prefer the Note series.

According to sources the S8 is set to launch a 5.7 inch display model and a 6.2 inch display, both bezel-less.

Despite the screen increase, Samsung is known for ultra thin profile devices jam packed with features. Consumers should feel comforted that such a trend should continue. This means that despite the screen size increasing the dimensions of the phone should remain largely the same as the already ultra thin S7 series.

Lastly, it seems plausible that Samsung is stopping any “flat” screen variants of the GALAXY line up in 2017. As curved AMOLED display technology and bezel-less displays are becoming the trend it would be interesting to see what Samsung decides to extravagantly change and keep. We see a lot of this happening with Apple.

<h1>All That You Wanted To Know About Unlocking Your Samsung Phone</h1>

While it is now legal to unlock your Samsung phone, we all know that doing it through your carrier is an excruciatingly long process. And that is probably why so many people choose to remain with their current service provider even if they end up having to pay through their nose, or dealing with rude customer service staff. If you own a SIM locked phone and looking to switch providers, here’s everything you wanted to know about the process:

  • Network carriers make it difficult for you to unlock your phone:

Don’t call the carrier to unlock your Samsung phone. For one, it takes forever for someone to respond when you call in to switch providers. This is intended to put you off the process.

  • AT&T will unlock your phone for users within the contract period, but:

You will have to fulfill several conditions. Besides, they will do it only five times every year. Also, you should not owe them any amount on their accounts. And you must have been a customer for over 60days. And…. the list is endless.

  • Sprint unlocks your phone, but:

You should have been their customer for a minimum of three months.  There are several other conditions that you have to meet. In short, most carriers offer to unlock your phone for a limited time period, but, you will have to prove that you are traveling outside the country.

  • There’s no respite for people who’re not happy with the service provider:

If you are not happy with the carrier’s customer service, there’s nothing you can do. You are also not allowed to switch plans.

  • Unlocking phones is easier and stress-free: offers to unlock your Samsung phone at just half the costs charged by your service provider. We’ll do it within 24 hours time and give permanent unlock codes. The phones are factory unlocked, i.e. they’re not affected by updates.

Galaxy S8 Rumored to get Interesting AI

Galaxy S8 Rumored to Get Interesting AI


Many rumors have been circulating based on certain facts that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will feature Samsungs very own AI. This is based off the acquisition Samsung has made over Viv Labs who are the pioneering designers behind Siri. It seems like Samsung has been working on a voice recognition based AI to integrate into not just the upcoming Galaxy phone but to their other product lines such as an advanced refrigerator.

To further the rumors a Wall Street Journal reported that a dedicated button may be added to the S8 just for the AI. A prototype of the device is said to have an extra button on one of its sides that gives instant access to the apparently powerful AI assistant.

Samsung has made hints that their AI will be significantly different from their rivals such as Siri and Google Assistant. Samsung revealed a bit of how the service would work:

“Developers can attach and upload services to our agent,” reported Rhee Injong, vice president executive of Samsung. “Even if Samsung doesn’t do anything on its own, the more services that get attached the smarter this agent will get, learn more new services, and provide them to end-users with ease.”

Unfortunately, due to the Note 7 fiasco it may seem that the traditional release date cycle Samsung has become known for may be shifted. Normally Samsung would unveil their next S series flag ship phone at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February. However, WSJ made hints that the S8 unveiling may come as late as April. We guess that Samsung is leaving nothing to chance and making sure their flagship products will never face the troubles of its short lived elder brother. Better safe than sorry.



LG V20 Available in Canada

LG V20 Available in Canada


2 months ago LG announced their new flagship device; the LG V20. This is the first V series device that will hit Canada for the first time. The LG V20 will be sold by Canadian carriers Videotron and Wind Mobile. Consumers who purchase these devices early will be able to receive a bonus gift which are the Beoplay H3 headphones by Bang & Olufsen. However, there will be limited quantities so first come first serve!

The LG V20 provides users with a powerful suite of multimedia tools deployed at their finger tips. With the inclusion of the quad DAC (32 bit digital to analog converter) for super high-quality audio experiences and a high performance mic for excellent phone recording users would have a lot of fun being creative. The dual camera and steady shot 2.0 is also included to provide seemless video recording and picture taking. The dual rear facing camera is a combination of a 16 MP f/1.8 aperture module and a 8 MP f/2.4 module. There is also included a “wide angle” lens which shows a field of view of 135 degrees. The 5 MP front facing camera views at 120 degrees so you can selfie a lot of friends. The unique design of the LG V20 is the secondary screen which displays notifications and frequently used apps.

In terms of other specifications the LG V20 features the 5.7 inch QHD IPS display and carriers a 3,200 mAh battery. With 64 GB of expandable storage (via microSD) and 4 GB of RAM storage and performance will not be an issue. Speaking of performance the LG V20 utilizes the Snapdragon 820 chipset which is a high end SoC found in other high end flagship phones of 2016. A notable mention is that the LG V20 is the first non Google android to arrive with Android 7.0 Nougat. The LG V20 is Band 66 compatible which allows the phone to work with Wind’s unique AWS-3 LTE network.

At this point only Videotron and Wind carriers this flagship model in Canada, we have yet to recieve any further word from other major Canadian carriers.


Wind is currently selling the V20 for as low as 349$ on the Wind Tab and 999$ outright. Videotron is selling the LG V20 for 249.95$ on a 2 year contract and 1020.95$ outright.



LG V20 “ShatterGate”: What is going on?

LG V20 “ShatterGate”: What is going on?


2016 seems to be a circus for smart phone makers starting with the discontinuation of the Note 7 device for being fire prone. A growing controversy is starting to grasp a new flag ship device that was just released, known as the LG V20.

The LG V20 is a fantastic device manufactured by LG which replaces the LG V10 device. The device features a secondary ticker screen, dual camera system on the back, metallic body, fast snapdragon 820 SoC, replaceable batteries, and a big screen.

Unfortunately, several reports show that the LG V20’s camera glass shatter’s upon small drops, scratches, and possibly from simply putting the phone down.

A Reddit Thread which was created by xAmorphous began gathering all relevant cases which includes youtube user JerryRigEverything’s stress test video which showed the camera unit cracking after a simple scratch test.

A user on Android Central also reported that the camera glass shattered after dropping the phone 2.5 feet on carpet. The troubling fact was that the phone was encased in a strong Otterbox case.

The Reddit thread contains various other cases of similar shattergate situations. The LG V20 is supposed to feature the MIL-STD-810 standard (shock – resistant certification) so the camera glass should not be shattering. As the news is still rather fresh we are assuming that it is a handful of LG V20 units that are affected. We hope to see how LG will react and rectify the situations for those select few, if not them all.
