Unlock the T-Mobile USA Sony Xperia Z1

The Sony Xperia Z1 was released on T-Mobile USA back in September 2013. This model was released in black, white and purple and was launched running Jelly Bean (currently upgradable to Lollipop). The Xperia Z1 has 16GB of internal memory and is externally expandable up to 64GB. It has a 5″ touch screen with Trilumnos Display and shatter-proof glass. The Xperia Z1 also had the best camera during the time it was released. With its 20.7MP camera and 1080p video recorder, the Z1 produced vivid and clear pictures and videos. The Z1 was comparable to all the high-end Android devices on the market at that time, with the quad-core processor, Adreno 330 and 2GB RAM – this model provided exceptional speed and functionality. Once unlocked, it can be used with compatible GSM networks only.

ASUS ZenFone 2

Since Asus decided to enter the world of mobile phones, we’ve been getting some interesting designs. Let’s take a moment to look at the ASUS ZenFone 2, which was just released to Canadian citizens on May 19th. It features top end internals coupled with lower end externals and is a cheap and readily available option to upgrade to Android 5 Lollipop. The phone can also accept 2 SIM cards.

Body & Design
The ZenFone looks great, but feels cheap in hand. It’s made of plastic with the look of brushed metal. It’s actually thicker than the HTC One M9 and the LG G4, and the power button is awkwardly placed, too. Fitted near the middle on top of the phone with next to no tactile feedback, it’s a bit of a hassle trying to turn off the screen. Granted, the volume rockers are located on the back of the phone by the camera with a very distinct click feeling, so not all the buttons are bad. The capacitive buttons (home, return, and recent apps) are not quite what you’d expect them to be. They’re not virtual buttons that are located on the actual display like the Nexus, phones, nor do they light up, like on the Samsung phones. This makes for an annoying time trying to use the keys. You’ll likely grow into them over time, but it’s just not the same having to fumble around with the keys without really being able to see what you’re pressing.

The phone has rear facing speakers like the Note 4, spread out in little dots over a larger surface area like the One M9. This does not make for a very good combination; the sound quality was not too bad, but it wasn’t exactly great, either. We will guess that talking to people on speakerphone will be your last choice of communication.

The battery door is removable, but the battery is not. The phone comes in Osmium Black, Sheer Gold, Glacier Grey, Glamor Red, and Ceramic White.

Display
Unfortunately, the average exterior of this phone is coupled with an average display. The ZenFone 2 has Gorilla Glass 3 shielding a 5.5 inch display that features 1920×1080 pixels.It uses an LED display which really pales in comparison with others that use Super AMOLED.
Although we’ve proven that you can have a bright and gorgeous screen even with a low level of pixels with, this phone does not meet that expectation. The display is neither bright nor vivid–especially when compared to other, more premium phones.

Battery & Storage
The ZenFone 2 comes with a 3000mAh non-removable battery. It has a feature that acts similarly to Qualcomm’s quick charge, allowing the phone to charge from 0 to 60 in less than an hour. But, keep in mind that this quick charging feature is available only in the higher spec version of the phone, which also provides 4GB of RAM and a better processor. We have no word yet on whether the phone will be compatible with wireless charging.

The phone will be available in two separate models: a higher grade version featuring the Intel Atom Z3580 and 4GB of RAM and a lower spec version with the Atom Z3560 and 2GB of RAM. Both versions will support expandable memory in the form of a microSD memory card and both will be able to handle high-resolution games and other forms of entertainment.

Camera
The phone sports a 13MP primary camera with dual-LED flash and a 5MP front camera. We usually aren’t the pickiest when it comes to cameras, but we really can’t say that we’re impressed with this one. It’s a Toshiba made camera that really does not belong in 2015. It requires a significantly large amount of light just for decent photos and does not produce very clear photos in lowly-lit environments. Normally, we would say that this camera would do the job for the casual photographer, but photographic bloggers beware! The photos of your meals, your dog, or basically anything captured indoors may not appear crisp or even clear. If you’re not keen on taking many photos or keeping up with a food-blog, then this camera may suffice.

Price & Availability
Canadians will rejoice as places such as NCIX and Memory Express, the ZenFone 2 will now carry the phone. The lower and higher end versions sell for $249 CAD and $379 CAD, respectively. This is a very important selling point for the phone. It may have great internals, but the affordable price-tag will be very attractive for those in the market for a smartphone that can do everything a flagship can.

Overall, the phone is an average phone. The best thing that it has going for it is the on-par processor and the nearly-ridiculously-cheap price. Anyone who wants to venture into the world of Android, wants a smartphone that will do the job, or just a cheap, usable phone will find that the ZenFone 2 will perfectly suit your needs. Will you be purchasing the ZenFone 2, or have you already purchased one? Places are quickly selling out of the cheaply made, heavy hitting Taiwanese phone. Let us know in the comments below!

iPhone 6

Design & Body

Amongst the top ten phones of 2015, the Apple iPhone 6 still holds its own against other flagships that have recently been released. You can depend on Apple to make a phone that always looks and feels great. The latest iteration of the iPhone is encased in aluminum and glass, bearing two stripes along the top and bottom are now almost iconic to the iPhone. Not only are these stripes for transmitting radio waves, but they add a touch of colour and texture to the design—regardless of colour.

The sleep/sleep button is now located on the right hand side of the iPhone. A good move made by Apple, considering the amount of people who complained about the top-residing button on the already elongated iPhones 5 and 5S. The buttons are all metallic and have a nice click and tactile feel. They are also raised from the body, meaning there’s never a problem finding or hitting them. You will find the typical microphone, speaker, headphone jack, and Lightning charging port on the bottom of the phone. Despite wishes for a front facing speaker, bottom speakers are still much better than rear speakers, such as those found on other flagships.

It will be available in Space Grey, Silver, and Champagne Gold.

Display

The iPhone’s display has oleophobic coating, meaning it is extra resistant to finger prints and smudges. It also has improved resistance to dirt and oils, so go ahead and moisturize without fear! The screen also has shatter proof glass so in the unfortunate case that you drop your phone and the screen cracks, it wont go flying everywhere.

The phone’s display has an upgraded screen with 1334×750 pixels with 326 ppi pixel density. We were a little wary about the less-than-4k resolution, but as soon all doubts were laid to rest as soon as we saw this baby. Nevermind the numbers; the display is gorgeous. If ever there was an example demonstrating that numbers don’t mean everything, this is it. The iPhone has its usual soft tones and pastel colours, but the display actually looks so close to the glass that it almost looks unreal. Entertainment and high resolution games on this phone will be glorious.

Storage & Battery

Unfortunately, as usual, the iPhone comes only with 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB of internal memory, offering no means of adding external memory. Apple tries to compensate for this through the use of iCloud and cloud storage, but nothing really replaces a good ol’ fashioned microSD memory card.

Camera

Unfortunately, the camera protrudes from the phone’s body, meaning it is the first to receive shock and damage if the phone falls on its back. This also means that Apple’s very flat phone does not quite lie perfectly flat, either. This means that it’s a good thing Apple shielded the lens with sapphire glass, adding to its strength and durability. Regardless, the camera is one of the iPhone’s best features. When you think of iPhones, you’ll find that people in general tend to associate it with a great camera.

Oddly enough, Apple chose to stick with 8MP for its main snapper. Of course, we’ve seen time and time again from iPhones that numbers do not mean everything—but when faced with the decision of purchasing a thousand dollar phone, you might as well get one with at least 16MP, right? Although you’ll get lower pixels with the iPhone 6, the quality is still there. Apparently, we’re looking at something called Focus Pixels, which helps the camera check the direction that light is coming from, resulting in a very quick shutter. Whether you notice it is another story.

The camera has a decent amount of features for your everyday basic and casual photography needs. You’ll get HDR, panorama, and time-lapse—nothing too fancy and nothing you can’t get from other camera apps.

Price

iPhones have always been pricey and likely always will be. The iPhone 6 starts at a whopping $839 CAD for just the 16GB model, going up as high as $1099 CAD for the 128GB. In the states, you’ll have the option of purchasing it financed from AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. Unlocked, you get to choose from T-Mobile or without a SIM card. Prices start at $649 and jump to $849 USD.

Keep in mind that for the premium you pay, you will not be getting the option of expanding storage like with many other phones. You will get the newly improved keyboard and the streamlined fingerprint sensor, though. The phone will also work with the newest in smart wear technology, the Apple Watch. So depending on what features you need and want, the premium price may be worth it for you! Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on the iPhone 6 and what you think Apple has in store for the next iPhone!

Huawei Emotion UI

Welcome back! Today, we take a look a closer look at Huawei’s own Emotion UI. As we all know, Android is an open-platform that allows companies (as well as individuals) to work their own features onto each iteration of the operating system. Huawei preloads their Emotion UI onto Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is preloaded onto their latest intended competition for flagship phones: the P8.

Emotion UI was designed for simplicity’s sake. Having completely disregarded Android’s application drawer, all apps reside on the home screen, giving it an iPhone-like feel. The icons are all bright squares with rounded corners—even the applications you download from the Play Store. However, Huawei seems to understand that this theme may seem childish to many, so a Themes app was included to change skins. If the pre-installed 6 themes don’t please you, there’s always the ability to download other launchers such as Nova and Go to express your individuality.

Included in the things you can tweak are the home screen, navigation bar, navigation buttons’ style. An advantage Huawei users have over iOS users is the ability to add widgets on your home screen. It’s good to see that despite the heavy overlay placed over Android, Huawei kept the core concept of widgets native to the Emotion UI.

The P8 comes with an anti-virus called NQ Anti-virus. Unfortunately, it seems to be built into the OS and is not removable. We are not a fan of the fact that we can’t change this. The best that we could do was disable the application—out of sight, out of mind, right? For a UI that prided itself for customizability, the inability to remove the anti-virus software seemed counterintuitive.

Huawei evidently fixed some of Android’s inconsistencies, including changing background colours. Another improvement that we particularly liked was the timeline that Huawei incorporated into Emotion. This made everything neater and easier to check at a glance.

Another feature that Huawei added to their UI is a voice recording capability. You can record personal phrases in your own voice to wake up or command your P8. It’s a little finicky, but it’s a step in a good direction. With a little tweaking, we’re sure that Huawei can get this right. Another clever feature is something called voice wake up. Intended to help you find your phone, it will respond to you asking where it is, as well as play music so that you can find it—as long as your phone is lost within range.

Overall, the Emotion UI by Huawei is a pretty heavily modified version of Android. When immersed in the P8, you could almost forget that you’re using an Android device at all. Not only does the Huawei P8’s body and design evoke iPhone’s look, but their UI is reminiscent of iOS as well. Without the app drawer, the widgets are the only thing that really keeps the P8’s home screens distinctive from iPhones’. Easily modifiable and customizable, Emotion UI also fixes some of the minor inconsistencies that are found on Android. Personally, we can’t say that we’re fans of Emotion UI—but that’s likely because we are more partial to interfaces that are closer to stock Android. Emotion UI may appeal more to those who like the simplicity of iPhones but the customization of Androids. Let us know in the comments below what you think about the Huawei P8 and its usability!

Huawei P8 vs. Samsung Galaxy S6

Huawei’s latest and greatest in phone technology is the P8. This phone was released in April and is competing against other bigwig flagships such as Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Apple’s iPhone 6. The phone comes with a 5.2 inch display and loaded with Huawei’s own Emotion UI. This post will compare the P8 with the S6, hopefully helping you decide on the phone that’s best for your needs and wants.

Let’s start off with the body and design.

Huawei P8: aluminum unibody, external SIM card trays, external memory card slot

Galaxy S6: aluminum and glass unibody, external SIM card tray

Huawei took a page out of Apple’s book and dressed the P8 in a metal unibody with a line across the top and the bottom. It is also only 6.4mm thick, meaning it’s thinner than the Galaxy S6. It looks and feels premium, but because of how thin it is, it’s sometimes a little uncomfortable in hand. The volume rocker and power button are both on the right hand side of the phone, situated about half way down for easier reach. Some variants of the phone can also accept two nano SIM cards—both located just under the power button and accessible with a pin. One tray will hold your nano SIM card, and the other can hold either a second SIM or a microSD card. Keep in mind that not all models support dual SIM cards, though.

Samsung took a huge leap with the release of their S6, completely revamping the look of the Galaxy line and removing the expandable memory. It has a premium feel, given the glass and metal around the phone. It features an aluminum band sandwiched between a glass touch screen and a glass battery door that’s not removable. With its rounded corners, we feel like Samsung is also treading lightly on Apple’s waters. It’s also important to note that with the premium design, Samsung also stripped the phone of its removable battery and external memory. Having heard the many cries of outrage—and the phone being thicker than the P8—it may not have been worth the sleek design.

It’s a close tie, but we are going to have to go with the P8 on this one. Feel and body wise, they’re quite evenly matched—it’s up to whether you like the feel of glass or metal over the other. However, even though Samsung has stepped up their game in the design area, the ability to add external memory is what really gives the P8 its edge over the S6.

Next up, battery.

Huawei P8: 2680mAh

Galaxy S6: 2550mAh

With medium to light usage, you’ll find that the P8 will be wavering on the precipice of “just enough” for anything more than an eight hour day. The 2680mAh battery is non-removable so you wont be able to carry a spare, but Huawei offers an app that allows you monitor and control your battery usage. With a little work, you can make it last a little bit longer.

The Galaxy S6 has a smaller non-removable battery, but an arguably better processor. Even with less capacity, we’re almost guaranteed a longer life. It handled heavy usage a lot better than the P8 did, making it a better phone for lasting a full day. However, Samsung doesn’t provide such an extensive application for fine tuning battery usage, which means that if the phone isn’t enough to last you a day, you’ll end up carrying a charger around.

We’ll have to call this one a tie. We found that the Galaxy S6 was an easier “all-day” phone, but the ability to tweak and tune the battery usage on the P8 is not negligible.

Display.

Huawei P8: 5.2 inch with 441 ppi pixel density

Galaxy S6: 5.1 inch with 577 ppi pixel density

No one can say that the P8’s display is subpar—but then again, no one will be praising it above all others, either. Sitting at 5.2 inches, it’s just a smidgen bigger than the S6, but with fewer pixels to boast about. In the pixel competition, the P8 loses out. However, how many of us will be able to tell the difference between the two when they’re not placed side to side? Unless you’re gunning for the champion of pixels per inch, we think the Huawei will be perfectly fine for daily entertainment and casual use.

But then again, why say no to a sharper screen? The S6 features a 5.1 inch display with 577 pixels per inch. No matter what you do, the screen will look gorgeous. It just barely loses out to the P8 in size, but in sharpness, the S6 wins on paper. Of course, it’s all relative when you compare the two phones side by side. To the general eye, there’s not much difference unless you look for it.

Even though there’s only so much that that the human eye can discern, we’ll have to give it to the Galaxy S6. It may be 0.1 inches smaller, but the pixels are far more packed, making for a clearer display overall. Keep in mind that even though the S6 is technically better in specifications, you may not be mind the difference, so take a look at both phones in real life before you decide on which phone to buy.

How much do each of these phones cost?

Huawei P8: starts at around $530

Galaxy S6: starts at $750

This means that the S6 is sold at a significantly higher price while lacking the ability to expand on memory. The lower price of the P8 will certainly attract many more customers, but those customers will also have to use Huawei’s own Emotion UI, which is a hit or miss.

We’re going to end the post here, but please check back next week for a full review of the Huawei P8. Hopefully, this gave you an idea on which phone you’ll prefer when making your purchase. Remember that the S6 uses a TouchWiz version of Android Lollipop while Huawei ships their phones with their own version of Android, called Emotion UI. Tune in later this week for more information about how Emotion UI compares to other Android variants!
