Samsung Galaxy Alpha SM-G850F Smartphone Review

89% Samsung Galaxy Alpha SM-G850F Smartphone Review

Alpha leader. Samsung only used plastic even for its premium line in the past. This is now different, and it launches its Galaxy Alpha smartphone with an aluminum bezel. The phone places a claim on the smartphone crown with its strong components, but that still belongs to its company brother - Galaxy S5.

Apple challenger.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review

84% Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review

Stability issues. Finally, a big iPhone! Many people might have thought that, since the iPhone 6 Plus surpasses the 5s by 1.5 inches. In addition, there is a very slim aluminum body, but it cannot meet the high expectations. The term Bendgate combines the mocking of the competition and frustration of the owners about the unintentionally flexible iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Tablet Review

89% Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Tablet Review

Stunning screen. Samsung also relies on a high-resolution, Super AMOLED screen in its Galaxy Tab S 8.4. It is the tablet's absolute highlight. The in-house processor is good, but cannot compete with current high-end SoCs. Otherwise, the equipment is state-of-the-art and even includes LTE. Only better speakers and NFC would be appreciated.

Acer Liquid E700 Trio Smartphone Review

A tasty mix in a restrained casing that will not only be interesting for corporate customers.

Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 Tablet Review

86% Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 Tablet Review

Nexus rival. The Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 is designed to vie with the Google Nexus 7, and with its in-house processor and high-resolution LTPS display, it seems to be an interesting competitor in the 7-inch segment. The LTE tablet leaves a good impression in many respects; however, it shows some flaws in terms of software.

Huawei MediaPad M1 8.0 Tablet Review

83% Huawei MediaPad M1 8.0 Tablet Review

Couch potato. The MediaPad M1 8.0 ships with a fast Kirin 910 CPU, a decent display and great battery runtimes - but while its stamina may be great, both its slightly outdated version of Android and some outdoor usability issues are disappointing. However, for less than 200 Euros (~$263), it is still a good offer.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Tablet Review

88% Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Tablet Review

Brilliant star. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 relies on an in-house South Korean processor, which is why it slightly lags behind the Note 10.1 in terms of performance. Battery life shows some flaws, which are however still in a very good range. The star of the Tab S is clearly the display, which can entirely convince.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Smartphone Review

87% Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Smartphone Review

Big is now "Mini". One year ago, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini would have easily been a standard-sized smartphone. But it is smaller than the Galaxy S5 and does not offer all the features, either, so it is called "Mini". Where did the manufacturer save some money? And how does the Galaxy S5 Mini perform compared to other "Mini" devices?

Archos 50c Oxygen Smartphone Review

82% Archos 50c Oxygen Smartphone Review

The power of eight cores. Care for a five-inch HD screen alongside an octa-core SoC for 200 Euros (~$268)? Archos delivers on specs that are anything but common for this price range. Thus, we remain curious as to whether the manufacturer manages to fuse the components to a rounded total package. In that case, it would be a small deal breaker.

80% Huawei Ascend G6 Smartphone Review

Selfie machine. This is pretty much how Huawei advertises the Ascend G6 because its star is for once the front-facing camera with an exceptionally high resolution of 5 megapixels. The other equipment is more from the mid-range, but that keeps the price low. Huawei demands 249 Euros (~$338) for its newest smartphone offshoot.

82% Asus Transformer Pad TF103C-1B072A Tablet Review

Transformer - The Return. An Android tablet with a keyboard dock is a handy thing. Asus' Transformer pads were always good representatives of this category until now. Why this remains to be true for the Transformer Pad TF103C-1B072A although some compromises have to be made can be read in this test.
