Samsung’s Mesh Wi-Fi Solution Connect Home Smart has now launched with a Price of $169, July 2

Samsung’s Mesh Wi-Fi Solution Connect Home Smart has now launched with a Price of $169, July 2

samsung-connect-home-router-2x2-3

Samsung’s own mesh Wi-Fi offering is the “Connect Home” system. This was announced alongside the S8 and S8+ but barely anyone looked at it because of the hype that is the S8 and S8+. A few months later we are given a launch date and pricing details for the Smart Home mesh Wi-Fi solution. Connect Home will be exclusively launched through Best Buy and pre orders have begun on June 4. The launch date is July 2 at Best Buy followed by a nationwide retail launch starting July 14.

Mesh Wi-Fi solutions are versatile due to the fact that you can buy one, two, or even up to five of these Wi-Fi routers. Each unit is sold for $169 or $379.99 for a three pack. A “Pro” version is available for users who need their routers to handle high bandwidths which costs $249 each but it offers a 4×4 MIMO connectivity feature and a fast processor included.

One of these units will be able to cover up to 1500 sq ft while the three pack can cover up to 4500 sq ft of space. Five units can cover up to 7500 sq ft of coverage in your home or office.

The pricing of Samsung’s mesh Wi-Fi is higher than that of Google’s own Wi-Fi offerings while it performance wise it is not high end like the Eero systems. However, Samsung is betting on a “smart home” experience on top of the standard Wi-Fi functionality provided. Connect Home has been given an upgrade with “SmartThings hub” which connects to your smart home. If you own any SmartThings enabled devices connecting that device to your home network or office network is a snap.

User’s who need a fast setup for their SmartThings devices may find this feature super useful as it eliminates the need for additional hubs, connectors, or expensively fancy mesh Wi-Fi systems

 

Have you seen the Essential Phone yet?

Have you seen the Essential Phone yet?

ph-1-front-ui_copy_b77d8622-7200-4435-9f01-5e2509e50faa_1000x1000

Introducing the Essential Phone. This new creation was built by the same man who co founded Android itself. Now the Essential Phone which is powered by Android is quite ambitious as a project. It utilizes a strange display (that seems to have taken a page out of LG’s book) and a new modular system.

This phone will retail for $699 and it packs all of the high-end specs and phone features. Just take a look at the images in this post and you can immediately see whats up. The display is pretty edge-to-edge but it also goes all the way to the top of the phone (even the S8 does not do that). The bezel at the bottom of the phone is still there. The front-facing camera, however, awkwardly stands out randomly on this otherwise flush display.

The Essential launches in the US first and it supports all the major carrier radio bands. The device runs on Qualcomm’s 835 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The phone does not even have its logo or branding anywhere on the device!

ph_1_color_ocean_depths_bg_white

 

The Essential is a well made device built of a ceramic back and a titanium base body. These materials stand up pretty well against drops and bumps. The Essential Phone ships with the new standard USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and also LTE support for all major US Carriers. The fingerprint sensor is found on the back of the device.

ph-1-color-black-moon_copy_1000x1000

An important note to make is that the Essential Phone does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack built in. The company has mentioned that there will be a headphone dongle included in the box. We aren’t really sure how people will take the news.

An 8 MP front facing camera is found at the front and top but invades the display panel a bit and it has two 13 MP camera’s at the back beside a magnetic mod connection port. The phone runs on a 3,040 mAh battery that supports fast charge.

ph-1-back_copy_1000x1000

The magnetic connection part of the back of the phone supports various accessories such as a $199 mini 360-degree camera (that features dual 12 MP fisheye lenses that does 4K). This modular system is different from all the other offerings we have seen in the past as the phone uses 60GHz WiGig to wirelessly transfer data from the camera and also the pins themselves transfer power to the accessory.

Essential Phone will come in Black Moon, PureWhite, Stellar Grey and Ocean Depths color options. Ocean depths is a teal-ish color that will come at a later date.

The Galaxy Note 8 Rumors Round Up!

The Galaxy Note 8 Rumors Round Up!

note-8-render-2

Samsung’s Galaxy Note series created the phablet category several years ago. Manufacturers all initially scoffed at Samsung for pushing their first Note but a few years later they all started to copy Samsung because of their success in the category. Many began to realize just how useful it is to own a big screen with a slim body for a smartphone as media consumption becomes efficient and integral in our societies. The Note series always heralded the best of the best from the manufacturer: the best display, the most efficient size (while keeping a large display), the best specs and it always went toe to toe against Samsung’s biggest rival: Apple inc. All was well for the company for a long time until the Note 7 happened. It was a beast of a smartphone with a sexy new design and many raved about how awesome it was, that is, until it was recalled twice due to a battery based fire hazard. It has been several months since and the company created from scratch a new 8 point Battery Safety check program which includes a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to that promise. We believe that Samsung dealt with the fatal mistake in a wise manner and turns out there are still a multitude of consumers who are looking forward to Samsung’s next best Note smartphone.

Enter 2017 and we are slowly approaching the months where the next Note phone is typically unveiled (August). We are quite excited with the current set of rumors floating on the internet about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Lets dive in.

When can we expect it to be released?

Of course, no one really knows when the Note 8 will be released this year. This is in part especially due to the problems of the Note 7. Samsung may be working extra hard to ensure that the Note 8 not only provides a wow factor to people but also relay a sense of trust in their products again. Below we posted all of the previous Galaxy Note release date’s:

 

  • Samsung Galaxy Note – Announced Oct 27, 2011 | Released Oct 29, 2011
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – Announced Aug 29, 2012 | Released Sep 26, 2012
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Announced Sep 4, 2013 | Released Sep 25, 2013
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Announced Sep 3, 2014 | Released Oct 17, 2014
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – Announced Aug 13, 2015 | Released Aug 21, 2015
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – Announced Aug 2, 2016 | Released Aug 19, 2016

Normally, Samsung unveiled their Note’s at the Berlin IFA tradeshow during September, but the last two Note announcements were made in August. Most likely it will be either August or September when we will see the first glimpses of the Note 8. However, there are also rumors floating around which suggest that there is an unknown Galaxy X device that is in the works and is most likely launched prior to the launch of the next Note phone. Potentially, due to the “Galaxy X” the Note 8’s launch may be delayed by a few months.=

Design Rumors

note-8-render-3

The Galaxy Note series always introduced exciting changes as if they were breaking new frontiers. The S8 already provided some exciting changes to the whole Samsung design language. This includes a new “Infinity Display” that pretty much eliminates a lot of the bezel’s, and also the removal of the classic Samsung home button in favor of a pressure sensitive home button on screen. It is possible that the Note 8 will fix a lot of what is wrong with the S8 such as the misplaced finger print sensor (which is found at the top of the phone beside the rear camera).

In terms of the display, the Note 8 is most likely receiving a larger display panel compared to the S8+ but at a small increase. We’re also expecting an upgrade to 4K displays to assist in an improved VR experience. Thanks to the infinite display creating a 6.2 inch + display on a slim and small body is a possibility. If not, then it can retain the already awesome QHD+ resolution found on the S8 and S8+.

Other than the obvious transfer of existing technology (bixby, iris scanner, fingerprint, Knox, etc.) the Note 8 will also adopt the all screen, no bezel design.

The Korean Herald news company has been reporting that the company (Samsung) is actually developing a finger print sensor that would work under the display itself. This may show up for the Note 8.

The Galaxy S8 incorporates Samsung’s new battery which sees a lot less decay in battery life at about 5% compared to 20% decay after one year on the S7 Edge. The Note 8 is expected to receive the same treatment or better to help alleviate any fears of battery problems. This is also provided on top of Samsung’s new 8 Point Battery Safety check program to ensure priority in public safety.

The IP68 water and dust resistance rating will most likely also make its way to the Note 8. This means that the phone can with stand water leakage while submerged at a maximum depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.

The S Pen will make a glorious return with either the same high pressure sensitivity found on the Note 7 or better.

What’s New?

samsung_galaxy_note_8_rumours_release_date_specs_leak

A dual camera module is expected to make it’s way into the Note 8. Samsung kept the same camera module found on the s7 Edge into their S8 line up but that was because there was no need to upgrade an already awesome camera that excels in low light photography. The dual camera can feature either two different focal lengths (one wide, one tele) with two different apertures (f1.7 + f2.8) or it could be one camera unit with a wide aperture that functions as one unit to produce fantastic images.

Specs

The Note 8 is expected to come with a display a bit bigger than 6.2 inches which is understandable thanks to the next generation “Infinity Display”. The display may come in 4K resolutions or possibly the same QHD+ display as the S8+ has. The chipset inside will be either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 PRO or a Samsung custom-built Exynos 8995 chip if you live outside of the West. Both chips are fabricated on the highly efficient 10nm FINFETT process, this means more power efficiency while using the same or less power.

Samsung usually has the tendency to include extra specs in their Note phones (such as the new IRIS scanner last year). We know for certain that the iris scanner will be made available, as well with the finger print scanner. We believe Samsung may be able to integrate an “under the display” finger print sensor instead of having it way up high beside the back camera.

The Note 8 will also come with an S-Pen stylus which they are known for that supports precise tracking and writing.

6 GB of RAM is expected alongside a 128 GB internal storage option on top of a 64 GB storage.

Cost

The cost of Samsung flagship phones have been on the rise lately and they are not cheap. We expect costs of above 1017$ CAD for the Note 8 or about 800$ USD in the USA. However, high costs shouldn’t come as a surprise by now for Samsung powered flagship phones.

 

 

Android TV Receives a Huge UI Overhaul

Android TV Receives a Huge UI Overhaul

atv-framed

Announced during Google’s 2017 I/O they are bringing a big over haul to the UI for the Android TV experience. This was a highly anticipated interface makeover. Android TV is based in the living room as an entertainment platform that streams all sorts of multimedia including Youtube, Netflix, NBC, and various others.

Google is essentially updating the UI to become a lot more familiar to original TV viewers. An Android TV application is able to publish multiple channels which can be represented as rows of programs on the screen. Content is organized by relevance and users can fine tune what content suggestions show up on the home screen. To engage the viewers, a video preview can be shown when highlighting your selection. Therefore, themes and shows are arranged in a way that keeps things relevant for the viewers.

There is a quick launch bar at the top of the home screen interface which includes things like favorite apps and the “Watch Next channel”. Beneath all the programs are showcased based on viewing patterns and options set. Overtime the programs should be a lot more fine tuned towards you than anyone else.

A new inclusion to the Android  TV ecosystem is Google Assistant. Just like you can with your Android smartphone, viewers will be able to command Google Assistant to run shows, launch apps, and control your Android TV experience.

 

Instagram is Betting on becoming Your next Messaging App

Instagram is beefing up their Direct messages function in their apps. They’ve added the ability to add landscape and portrait photos in addition to link sharing. Instagram has come a long way since their growth began 5 years ago. On the surface adding these updates to Direct messages is not all the exciting but this is an interesting move to enhance Instagram Direct. User’s may find using the Portrait and Landscape photo’s in Direct to be rather useful and is expected to be used more often. The Link functionality itself is pretty diverse in its reach. It supports phone numbers, direct links, and links that lead you to other social apps such as Twitter.

Instagram has made it possible to stay within Instagram Direct and still view and share all information and sites when users click on links (which opens up an internal browser within Instagram).

Instagram is staying ahead by offering functional updates that users want and it is truly evolving. iPhones will receive the updates first then Android at a later date even though Links are already available in the latest Android app updates.

OnePlus 3T Being Discontinued for the OnePlus 5!

OnePlus 3T Being Discontinued for the OnePlus 5!

maxresdefault

As time quickly passes by we know that the OnePlus 3T is slowly being phased out in preparation for the OnePlus 5. The company has announced that the OnePlus 3T has reached the end of its production life and will be on sale until out of stock.

03-1491203065-oneplus5imaginedwithall-glassdesignandip68rating-18-1489836523

The OnePlus 3T was launched last year in the month of November which was well received by critics and users alike. It was the cheaper alternative to high end flagship phone’s that still boasted the same high end specs as well. OnePlus has promised to continue to provide software updates and support to the OnePlus 3 and 3T for some time.

People who are looking to purchase the OnePlus 3T will be looking at a last call basis of ordering before stock runs out.

OnePlus is not as large as Samsung or Apple, thus as a small company it simply want’s to focus all of it’s available resources in manufacturing the OnePlus 5.

The OnePlus 5 is coming in June.

Samsung DeX Review (In Depth!)

Samsung DeX Review (In Depth!)

apps_dex_feature01_pc

We all know that computing processes are getting smaller and smaller. Chipsets either retain or improve in performance yet become physically smaller so it it shouldn’t be a big surprise that we are now approaching a new future where our desktop experiences come from our own smartphones. The Samsung DeX offer’s an alternative way of experiencing your S8 or S8+. It doesn’t feel like a gimmick.

Is DeX useful?

screenshot_20170524-133028

After a few weeks of usage we finally have a better idea of this accessory for your S8+. DeX is more of an expanded function available on your smartphone than it is a replacement for a full windows desktop workstation.

The DeX costs about 150$ and is a simple dock where you drop in your S8 or S8+ into. You will need an external monitor that hooks up to the HDMI out port along with a mouse and keyboard that can connect to the two full-size USB ports. There is also an ethernet jack. The USB port is high quality and works instantaneously with mice and keyboard so no worries there. To connect bluetooth headsets and peripheral’s just connect to the S8+ directly for the best experience.

The USB port is not compatible with everything though. For example, the DeX dock does not work with various webcams that we tried and USB microphone’s did not register with DeX either. Card readers and flash drives are supported and you will have no issues there.

Remember to pack your power cable

screenshot_20170524-133054

DeX need’s it’s own dedicated charging cable while on the move. It is possible to use the TV’s available in hotel rooms with your DeX platform but if it does not have a TV, well, you’re out of luck. Remember to always pack the necessary accessories if you travel with DeX.

Samsung DeX does not have an apparent way to let you use the headphone jack. The s8+’s head phone jack is found at the bottom of the phone which is blocked by the dock itself. The only option would be to utilize bluetooth enabled speakers.

DeX Introduces a New Desktop Interface

screenshot_20170524-133102

The interface consists of something that many could expect, menu systems, an app drawer, a task bar (equivalent to the status bar found on Android), and the app windows opened can be moved around just like you can on Windows PC’s. The only time’s we could not move the window’s is when the application is designed to work for mobile environment’s only. A marker is shown sometimes which signals you to know whether or not a landscape mode is available.

The operating system integrated into DeX is quite impressive. There aren’t as many issues when using DeX as one would encounter on the still growing Chromebook market. The Chrome browser works beautifully enabling us to connect to our wordpress sites and write up documentations. RAW photo edits were done easily via Samsung Gallery’s photo app. It is important to remember that all of this is still running on your S8+. In all these respects, we absolutely love the UI experience.

Not everything is perfect

There are limitations found on the DeX desktop experience. For example, touch heavy games will not work well with your set up and web apps such as Spotify cannot even function. Also, opening up too many tabs in your browsers and apps will bring up a low memory warning on screen. It is not wise to open two Chrome browsers at the same time.

Drag and drop functionality is non existent yet between folder’s. Certain apps also do not register mouse pointers at all. It will require constant usage for user’s to find a proper way of utilizing DeX.

Whats Supported?

screenshot_20170524-122359

Currently, there are only 16 applications which support Samsung DeX. Adobe products are supported, and so are Microsoft suites. Skype will work great as well as with remote desktop controlling apps and VPN clients. Apps that aren’t optimized for the DeX UI will immediately realize that these app’s don’t understand the whole DeX environment and will not play nice.

Is Samsung DeX worth it?

As with anything, it is always suggested to weigh the pros and cons for your given circumstances. Why do you need this? What does it offer that you can utilize efficiently and make it worth the cost and effort? As stated in this article there is only as tiny amount of apps that really take advantage of DeX. If you are looking for a full fledged desktop experience like that of Mac OSX or Windows, we suggest you just save the headache and buy a laptop. However, if you are part of the crowd who would simply like one for the experience because it is an interesting accessory that is available for your expensive smart phone, by all means get it as it could give you a fun toy to play with for a little bit.

After a while it could be a pain to constantly set up your TV, monitor, mouse, keyboard, and phone if you travel a lot. A laptop would win in these cases most of the time. However, we view the DeX as a fun set up in the living room where you can just plop your s8 in and watch some fun things on the big screen with your family. For everything else, we feel that the laptop, desktop and already existing technology has us covered with a maturity that is unrivaled.

 

 

 

Here’s Why You Should Unlock Your iPhone

Here’s Why You Should Unlock Your iPhone

 

You can’t be an iPhone fan and not love the iPhone 7! With a 64 bit quad-core chipset and the updated retina display, this phone is sure not to disappoint. And at $649, it’s cheaper than some other phones. Of course, you could buy a SIM-locked phone for way less, but that is not without its restrictions. Here’s why we think you should unlock your iPhone7:

  • Freedom from customer service woes

People with unlocked phones do not have to put up with horrible customer service. Sad for you if your contract is tied to one service provider. Bill disputes, dropped calls and rude customer service staff are all incredibly common. Unfortunately, there’s little you can do besides complain over and over again, and pray the problems are resolved. With an unlocked phone, you can switch network carriers when you want and choose providers that offer a better deals and service.

  • Freedom from roaming charges

If you’re going on vacation outside the country, don’t forget to unlock your iPhone7. With a SIM-locked phone, you can’t just pop a new SIM card in and start using your phone. Some service providers offer to temporarily unlock the phone, if you’re travelling abroad, but there are several restrictions. A good idea is to unlock your phone using our codes and to replace your SIM card with a local SIM card bought in the country you’re traveling to.

  • Freedom to pick your own plan

With an unlock code, you don’t have to restrict yourself, period. You get to pick and choose service providers who’re willing to offer good deals.

iPhone 7 VS Other 2016 Phones

iPhone 7 VS Other 2016 Phones

 

Surprisingly, the iPhone 7 wasn’t the best selling phone last year; that crown belonged to its predecessor, the iPhone 6. Slow sales could probably be blamed on the fact that a lot of features Apple introduced weren’t earth shaking. Read on to find out how the iPhone 7 compares to other phones launched that year?

iPhone 7 Vs. Samsung Galaxy 7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a Series 7000 aluminum chassis, making itdust and water resistant. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a slightly higher waterproof rating of IP68, against iPhone 7’s IP67. The iPhone 7 has a 4.7 inch width but valuable screen real estate is lost thanks to the large top and bottom bezels. This isn’t the case with the 5.1 inch Galaxy 7 screen that’s compact. And when it comes to battery life, the Samsung wins there, too.

iPhone 7 Vs. Huawei Nexus 6P

The Huawei Nexus 6P was released in 2015 but shares some features with the iPhone 7. Although the Nexus 6P comes with Android 6 Marshmallow, Huawei has instant access to Android 7 Nougat – a super-powerful operating system that offers multi-window support and bundled notification. The Huawei Nexus 6P also has 3GB RAM, while the iPhone 7 only has 2GB RAM capability.

iPhone 7 Vs. LG G5

The LG G5 has the Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM that runs on Android Marshmallow. The LG G5 has a superior display, a MicroSD port, dual rear-facing cameras – all of these features at a much cheaper price than the iPhone 7. They also guarantee a free screen replacement.

But if you’re a fan of the iPhone, nothing can compare to the excitement of owning an iPhone 7! Thanks to us, buying a SIM-locked phone needn’t restrict your iPhone experience. Contact us to unlock your iPhone 7 so you can switch service providers and choose plans that are just right for you!
