Review: OnePlus Two

OnePlus Two

Early in 2014 a new startup smartphone manufacturer OnePlus created quite a unique buzz among the technology sector when they announced their first product, a super powerful high-end smartphone that would cost half or even ⅓ of the mainstream flagships (Samsungs, HTCs and Apples). It received immediately its famous nickname “The Flagship Killer” and the moniker was was later mimicked by many others. The One turned out to be quite a success both in sales figures and in reviews and now it is my pleasure to lay my hands on its successor, OnePlus Two.

Review: Landvo S6

Landvo S6

China has many smartphone manufacturers that the West has not even heard of and some of them specialize in making clones of famous big brand phones. The design of such phones is already proven and the manufacturers can mix in different components to achieve a specific (often luringly low) price point. Landvo S6 is a Samsung Galaxy S6 clone with a very affordable price tag but how does it fare in real use?

Review: SOOCOO S60 Action Camera

SOOCOO S60 Action Camera

GoPro cameras are the epitome of action cameras but they are still too expensive for many amateurs.

Review: Lenovo VIBE Z K910

Lenovo K910 VIBE Z

Lenovo is currently (early 2015) the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, after first-place Samsung and a runner-up Apple, and has a wide selection of models to target all consumer segments from low-range to high-range. Lenovo K910 VIBE Z sits at the upper part of mid-range with high-quality components from well-known companies such as Qualcomm and Sony. It is a very exciting Android smartphone with well-thought components and a decent price tag ($260/210 €) but how does it perform in real life?

Review: Cheap Basketballs From China

Cheap Basketballs From China

The official basketballs that are sold in the US and Europe are made in China so it could be possible to get such a ball without intermediate agents for a cheaper price, straight from the factories. So my quest for a good yet affordable basketball game ball shifted to China. I had earlier bought a Spalding NBA Zi/O and a Spalding Neverflat in the United States and a Wilson Solution in Europe. The Wilson Solution turned out to be far superior compared to the Spalding balls. The only problem with the Solution is the high price (60 €/$85) in Europe. Therefore I wanted to find out are the cheap basketballs sold in China any good? Continue reading
