LG G5 First Look – Mix of Brilliance & Innovation, Impressive Design

LG G5 – Brilliance & Innovation

It’s tough competition out there for smartphone makers and LG has taken a bold step to shake things up with the G5. The phone is not just a new version of G4, it is different in a lot of ways. It has a bunch of new features and specs but, unlike nearly every other phone that’ll be released this year, it has something completely new, something 99.9% of people had no idea even existed until earlier today.

Let’s have a look at what’s new in LGs new G5

Design & Build

If we talk about the design and build of the G5, the phone looks completely fresh and unique. The design is subtle and premium. The phone’s corners are smooth with an excellent build material and there isn’t an antenna band in sight. The LG G5 is expected to come in four colors – Pink, Silver, Titan and Gold.

Hardware & Specifications  

The LG G5 features a 5.3 inch screen, though it’s smaller than its previous two models. Like Samsung, the G5 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. It’s a quad-core chip and has an Adreno 530 GPU all backed up by 4GB of RAM which looks like it will be the standard for Android flagships this year. The internal storage is 32GB and LG continues to offer expandable storage with the Micro-SD card slot which supports up to 200GB cards. Also, the smartphone features a removable battery of 2,800mAh.


It’s impossible to do a proper camera test during a “first Look” but the specs are notable. The smartphone has two cameras on the rear, one camera with a standard 78-degree lens and another with a 135-degree wide angle lens, one of the widest available in any smartphone. The 135-degree lens on the LG G5 offers a viewing angle that is approximately 1.7 times wider than those of existing smartphone cameras and 15 degrees wider than the human eye’s field of view. The wide angle lens makes it easier for users to capture more landscape, taller buildings or larger groups without having to position oneself further from the subject.

Software & Apps

As expected, the LG G5 comes pre-installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is the latest version of the mobile OS and also LG’s own UX 5.0 UI. So, you can say the device is powerful and will perform brilliantly. There’s not much else to say about software because most of the things are the same as they were before.

By introducing the new metal design, the LG G5 has done something quite different. The initial analyses depict the LG G5 is one of the most innovative smartphones of the season.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge- Excellent Camera, Seductive Design! Will This be the Best Smartphone of 2016?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a stunning curved screen and bigger battery. Yes, it is really something special. If you are looking to buy a new smartphone that has it all- camera, memory and battery, then Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the right choice.

What catapults this newly released Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to such heights? Is it the seductive design, the excellent camera, the beast of a battery, or the expandable storage? The design, those impressive curves, and larger memory, everything about the 5.5-inch S7 Edge excels from the inside out. The company has refined the navigation software that take advantage of the screen’s physical curves when used sensibly, giving it an appealing look as well as functionality. Here is our verdict on this newly launched S7 Edge-


Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge’s design is downright gorgeous. The smartphone features a metal and glass build, curved display, is IP68 water resistant, and is available in black and gold. Samsung has managed to cram a large screen into the body of a much smaller phone. Next to the iPhone 6S Plus, the S7 Edge is narrower, shorter and much lighter. You can even use it comfortably in one hand, stretching my thumb from one corner to the other without too much trouble.


 Newly launched Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge actually has fewer megapixels in comparison to its predecessor S6 – 12MP as opposed to 16MP. Though the actual amount of pixels in the sensor is less, there are a number of improvements. The major improvement is the low-light performance. Here, Samsung is employing a new-fangled technology called “Dual Pixels”, and it will help the auto-focus work brilliantly well. With this, each pixel in the sensor has two ‘photobodies’ and this means the camera can focus more effectively, accurately and much quicker.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Touchwiz and Software

With the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the TouchWiz has slowly gotten better, cleaner, and smoother, and the skin has finally reached the point where it’s no longer a serious negative against the phone. Though it’s not as sleek as vanilla Android Marshmallow, it’s starting to come mighty close. There are fewer useless bundled apps, fewer ‘bleeps’ and ‘blops’ and fewer childish icons.


The sheer performance of this phone is hard to match. The 4GB RAM allows you to try everything from multi-tasking to gaming and ultra-high definition video. It is among the coolest flagships you have seen till now. Samsung has added in a futuristic sounding ‘water-cooling element’ inside the S7 Edge to try and halt any accusations of overheating.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has taken a leap ahead of all the other flagship handsets this year. When it comes to the purchase decision, it is a gorgeous phone that is worth buying if you do not mind spending a bit extra.

Samsung Galaxy S7! Refined & Polished – A Smartphone Worth Buying?

Refined & Polished Samsung Galaxy S7

The long awaited, hotly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S7 was finally released and got a noteworthy response from all who got a chance to play with it. Though the phone is not a huge upgrade over the S6, it is better. It is a refined, polished smartphone that is a recommended buy.

And what’s even more exciting is the phone’s sexy curves, which are really impressive. When you hold the Galaxy S7, it feels like a different phone – thanks to its subtle curve on the back. However, realize that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is an expensive phone. As you look into technical specifications and features of the Samsung Galaxy S7, the smartphone has a lot to offer. Here is our verdict on this newly released S7.


At first glance, the Galaxy S7 certainly looks very similar to its predecessor the S6, but Samsung has managed to sneak in a few improvements to the handset. First, the camera bump has been prominently reduced so it barely bulges from the rear. Secondly, the Galaxy S7 is noticeably thicker and heavier than its antecedent. Samsung Galaxy S7 is certainly a striking smartphone and the tweaks in design make it even nicer to use and hold.


When it comes to displays, Samsung has shown over the years that its Super AMOLED displays provide the finest viewing experience and with this newly launched smartphone, Samsung has shown it once again. S7 continues the trend and the Super AMOLED display in the Samsung Galaxy S7, with display size of 5.1 inches, is offering vibrant and profoundly saturated colors that makes the screen legible in even the brightest conditions.


The smartphone features a 12MP rear and 5MP front camera. The Samsung Galaxy S7 camera featuring a F1.7 lens evidently makes it particularly well-suited to low-light photography. The new added feature, the auto focus function, allows the lens to instantly focus on moving objects, letting you capture blur-free photos. The pictures taken with the S7 are sure to appear more vibrant, with more true-to-life colors.


With Galaxy S7, Samsung has stepped up its game in terms of battery life. While its antecedent S6 had a 2500 mAh battery, the new S7 has a 3000 mAh battery, which is a significant improvement. Moreover, the S7 comes with a fast charger that allows you to charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 10 minutes.

There’s no denying that the Samsung S7 is an applauded upgrade in the right key areas. However, with the cheaper S6 on the shelves next to it, we can say there will be many who are now facing a no-so-obvious choice.

Thinner waistline

iPhone 5SE – Apple’s Next-Generation 4-inch iPhone Rumored to Launch in March

For those who believe a cell phone should actually look like a cell phone and not want a giant screen device pressed to their ear, the iPhone 5se is the answer. Apple is all ready to launch its 4-inch iPhone in rose gold as well as traditional colors in March, based on the latest reports.

iPhone 5se
Apple’s Next-Generation 4-inch iPhone

This new device is reportedly modeled after the iPhone 5C and is particularly meant for those who are looking for both affordability and small size. Sources suggest that the iPhone 5se will be similar to the iPhone 5C and the two phones will be able to share cases and accessories. The major features of the device include 4-inch display, A9 processor and an 8 megapixel camera.


If we talk about design, the iPhone 5se is said to be much like its successor, the 5C, but with a plastic case rather than metal. While this isn’t a worry at all, as it means that Apple can make a device in various funky colors and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Apple will give us high-quality plastic and fairly it will not give the look of an average plastic handset. As for color, sources suggest the same space gray color and silver shades will be offered, but there have been rumors pointing to a bright pink shade.


According to the latest leaks, the iPhone 5se will have performance somewhere between the 6 and 6S. The rumors about the processor have said to be split between the A8 found in the iPhone 6, and the A9 in iPhone 6S. However, the latest reports are emphasizing A9. As you all know, the A9 is a huge step over the A8 which already has an impressive chip, as far as performance and efficiency is concerned. The processor is 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and about 90 percent efficient at GPU tasks as compared to the A8 used in the iPhone 6.


The iPhone 5se is said to continue with the 8 megapixel camera instead of the 12 megapixel device found in the iPhone 6, although sources also reveal the camera is the same as in the iPhone 6. And, if the device has the same camera as is in the iPhone 6, it will support high-resolution pictures, enhanced picture quality and improved image stabilization.

iPhone 5se
Apple’s Next-Generation 4-inch iPhone

Storage Capacity

To differentiate it from Apple’s flagship iPhone 6S, the device is expected to come in 16 and 64GB capacities, which is much like the iPhone 6. Also, this new device will be a step above the iPhone 5S which is available in 16 and 32GB capacities.

Release Date

The iPhone 5se is expected to launch in March 2016. The latest rumors have also said the final launch date is March 15, but we’ll have to wait and see when Apple officially announces the release.

So, if you want a device with an elegant look and smaller in size and within budget, you might want to wait for the iPhone 5se launch.

Sony Xperia Z5: This One has it All

Sony has remained a small player in the smartphone market when compared to giants like Samsung and Apple. The recent Xperia phone, the Sony Xperia Z5, is the culmination of 18 months of incremental improvement for Sony’s series of Xperia devices. The phablet is likely to be released on February 7th all over the US. However, as the Z2, Z3 and Z3+ are barely any different from one another, the Xperia Z5 represents a significant step forward.

Sony Xperia Z5: This One has it All
Sony Xperia Z5: This One has it All

Sony’s Xperia Z5 flagship is stuffed with plenty of top tech features that is expected from a high-end smartphone. It incorporates a full HD display, tons of power and a great 23 MP camera. Mix in the list that it sports a waterproof design and you will get yourself the phone of the year. Really?

Well no. Though the smartphone landscape has changed drastically in the past few years with Samsung really shaking up the market with its Galaxy series, especially the Galaxy S6 Edge. In contrast, Sony is doing little to wow consumers in its flagship refreshes. The Xperia Z5 is the successor of Xperia Z3 which has an identical display and similar design. This doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the new Sony phone. It looks perfectly fine as it has got a solid lineup of specifications.


Even a passing glance is enough to notice the phone is from the same family as the Z3 and Z2. It keeps the glass front and back with a metal edge. It displays minor changes like the rear panel is frosted. The metal edge is flat giving the phone a blocky look and feel. At 7.3mm thick, the touch is chubbier than some of its rivals. The 5.2-inch screen has the same full HD resolution giving it a similar pixel density as that of the Z3. The display looks perfectly crisp.

Software and Processor

The smartphone comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board. The only reason why Sony takes so long to update its Android phones is that it heavily customizes the Android interface. There are a number of pre-loaded apps that clutter things up, but you can easily uninstall most of them. The Z5 engine is a Qualcomm 810 octa-core chip with 3GB of RAM backing it up.


Sony Xperia Z5: This One has it All
Sony Xperia Z5: This One has it All

Sony has provided Z5’s camera with a load of tweaks to improve it over the Z3. The front camera delivers a whopping 23MP for crystal clear shots. The resulting photographs are huge, clocking in at 5,520×4,140 pixels. The extra resolution delivers flexibility to digital zooming into a scene without losing too much detail. You can also take advantage of a variety of various shots like panorama and others with the augmented reality feature.


Sony Xperia Z5 is an amazing phone with great performance. Its camera takes some perfect clicks. Though a decent phone, it still lacks the real wow factor. As it stands, the Xperia Z5 is a solid all around device that arrives too close to the last generation of flagships to be worth buying.
