As a member of Xiaomi’s more affordable Redmi series, the Note 4 does not have a curved screen, a ceramic body, or the latest flagship hardware like Xiaomi’s more expensive models, but it does pack a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 13MP camera with PDAF into a solid-feeling aluminum chassis.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to have 4K display and Bixby AI assistant

Samsung is reportedly working on its own voice-activated AI system, as we heard before. But to differentiate from Alexa, Cortana and Siri it will have a male voice and will be named Bixby. We are expecting to hear from him (pun intended) in March when the Galaxy S8 is revealed but according to our source it will also be a crucial part of Galaxy Note 8. The phone, we now hear, is also going to have a UHD 4K resolution display which

Xiaomi understandably turned more than a few heads with the announcement of the Mi Mote 2, also topping things off quickly with the Mi Mix. The latter is yet to officially go on sale, but the wait shouldn’t be long now, if the suggested November 4 date is met. Meanwhile, the Mi Note 2 already had its first sale today and it went incredibly well. In fact, the Mi Note 2 officially broke the Mi 5 record, with its first

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a phone that’s designed for a very specific user base: those who want a larger screen but are craving a stylus too. That’s not to say others might not get some benefit from it, but it’s mostly centred around the functionality of the S Pen. The S Pen is, indeed, back again, and comes with more features and tricks to justify its existence. I’m still not sold on the point of it, but there

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has outed a new teaser on Weibo (China’s Twitter). The image in question just says 2>5 with a caption that translates roughly as “Love it, no one lose.” Although it’s a bit difficult to pin point exactly which product the company is teasing, the Mi Note 2 seems a likely candidate as it is currently keeping the rumor mill afloat, as well as has the number ‘2’ in its

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Introduction and design Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is nearly a year old, and its replacement is said to be Samsung Galaxy Note 7, not a Galaxy Note 6. Here’s what we think of the current S-Pen-equipped Android phone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a phone that’s either a game changer or deal breaker for longtime fans of the Android phablet, now that it has a premium look and feel. Its 5.7-inch display,

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will have USB Type-C connector, rumor says

At this point Samsung is just a few months away from unveiling the Galaxy Note 6, so understandably the number of rumors regarding it is starting to rise. The latest mumbling says in no uncertain terms that the successor to the Note5 will have a USB Type-C port, which will thus make its first ever appearance in the Korean company’s portfolio. It will replace the ever-prevalent microUSB connector. What isn’t as clear is which standard

Meizu m3 note: Launch

With every year, we tend to see quite a few launches happen in the first two quarters as the cycles in supply chains align for mass production to start around this time. We’ve already seen a number of new products from Huawei, LG, Samsung, and Xiaomi. Meizu is the latest company to join this list with its announcement of the m3 note.

Lenovo K3 Note: Getting More for Less

When manufacturers get into price wars with each other, it’s customers who win the most. Lenovo has fired the latest salvo, bringing full-HD 1080p screens to the sub-Rs. 10,000 market. The Lenovo K3 Note is a 5.5-inch smartphone with specifications that would have been pretty much top tier not more than two years ago. The company is breaking new ground in terms of value for money, but not so much in terms of strategy.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: The Smartphone With an Extra Dimension

Who would have thought a phone would come along that could make even the mighty Samsung Galaxy Note 4 seem boring? For all its top-notch features, the Note 4 lacks the one big thing that its new sibling brings to the market – a curved screen. It’s instantly iconic: the gentle glass that seems to flow right off the edge of what should be the front of this phone. The seamless continuation of pixels is truly remarkable,

Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Improving the Formula

Samsung pioneered the big-screen phone movement and though the original Galaxy Note was met with quite a bit of doubt and even some ridicule, it’s clear that the Korean giant had a huge role to play in shaping the current state of the industry. Over the years, mainstream phones have also grown in terms of screen size, so there isn’t much separating the current crop of phablets from their siblings – except, of course in
