Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G Review

Ever since I first started using a developer port of Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 on my HTC One M7, I’ve found myself wanting to give Xiaomi’s devices a try. I ordered a Xiaomi Mi4 in black, which should be arriving by the end of this week, if not next week. My review on that will be up within the coming weeks. The seller generously sent along with it the Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G, the first iteration of the RedMi Note series, to review. This is the first time I have used a phone with a screen size over 4.7″. The RedMi Note features a 5.5″ 720p display, a Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, a 13MP shooter on the back and a 5MP front facing camera. It also supports MicroSD expansion up to 64GB. It was nice to throw in my old 8GB MicroSD card from my HTC Desire Z days to get the added storage. ¬†The battery is 3,100 mAh, and I’ll get to that a little bit later in the review. I’m currently using the latest global MIUI 7.3 stable build. For a budget phone, with an unbelievable price point now that it’s been out for a little while, I am highly impressed. Read More

Nokia Lumia 520 Review

Windows Phone is something that not too many people have even heard of, unless you’re keeping up with technology news often and see the name splashed in a headline here and there, or if you know someone that has a Windows Phone device. I have now seen three of them in the “wild”, per se, but it’s nothing compared to how many Samsung devices and iPhones I see out and about. I decided to go ahead and buy the Lumia 520 because I’m someone who as much as I like the latest and greatest devices, I try and buy cheaper phones, or used phones in good condition. Read More

T-Mobile G2/HTC Desire Z Review

My latest phone I purchased was the T-Mobile G2, also known internationally as the HTC Desire Z, or the HTC Vision. I know the phone is going on 3 years old but it still appealed to me, and as much as I loved my iPhone 2G, the lack of Apps even with third party modifications like Whited00r and 3Store was the only downfall of it. The crazy thing is a while back, at least a year ago, I posted about how I wanted to buy this phone. Read More

A Month with Android OS

I used to be a hardcore iPhone and iOS user, my addiction came from when I got my first Apple product, the first generation iPod Touch, which I still have and is functioning perfectly, and I have a dual boot with Android Froyo, I’m positive. I messed around on Android whenever Openiboot was released for first gen iOS devices, but it ran horrendously slow and really didn’t appeal to me much. I did always follow the Android scene¬†though, just so I could be up to date on technology. Read More
