It should not be too long before the official announcement arrives on a new entry-level of the Korean giant: we are talking about Samsung Galaxy A01 Core of which we already know the model code ( SM-A013F ) and that could reserve a surprise that knows a lot about back to the origins.

The smartphone, in fact, will probably be characterized by the presence of a removable battery, a detail now more than rare in the smartphone market. This is not the only information leaked on the device, so many details of the data sheet already emerged.

Types of chargers for mobile phones, which one is better for you?

Nobody likes to run out of batteries in the middle of the day, especially if they are traveling or at an important event. Therefore, the charger is among those gifts that always accompany in the bag, next to the smart phone. Being therefore susceptible to loss or damage due to improper storage, it is not uncommon for a mobile phone charger to have at least one replacement charger throughout the life of a telephone. And this is where problems can come.

chargers for mobile phones

The average consumer is often tempted to get a fake charger when they see its low price. However, the differences are not only about this, but about quality. The originals are subject to strict quality standards with which it is intended to ensure the quality of the buyer.

In the case of the iPhone charger and other Apple items, 99% of those that are fake represent a health hazard. This was gathered by tests of the National level organization, which is responsible for ensuring the safety of consumers in the country.

Not only is the durability of the device working properly. Also the integrity of the user because, after all, we talk about something that is connected to the electric current.

Fast load or normal load?

There are faster chargers than others because this is determined by milliamps or mA. The 2A charger is faster than the 1A charger, and the difference in charging time can be more than half an hour .

Anyway, not everything is in the charger. The phone must be well adapted to this technology to take full advantage of the fast charge, so it does not make much sense to buy a 2A device if the phone is an older one.

In other cases, the solution to a slow load that is considered slow is neither in the charger nor in the mobile phone, but in the battery. Over time they wear out.

USB or current?

The USB charger is portable, in the broad sense of the word. It does not need to be connected to current to charge the mobile, as a more obvious advantage.

But, of course, also carries associated disadvantages. Charging is often slower and less efficient than a traditional charger, which means that the phone gets warmer and light damage can occur. Its use should therefore be timely.

Nokia 8 Strength Test: Scratch, BURN and Bend

Gorilla Glass 5 also does not offer much resistance to knocks or involuntary scratches

For a few days, we can already do with the Nokia 8, the flagship of the Finnish company, manufactured by HMD Global. This new terminal offers a very interesting value for money, so it is one of the best options we can find on the market today if we want to do with a terminal managed by the Snapdragon 835 accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. JerryRigEverything has subjected the new Nokia terminal to scratch resistance testing using different tools in addition to the almost mandatory resistance test if we try to bend it.

Taking into account that the body of this terminal is aluminum and of poor quality from what we see in the video, the Nokia 8 does not get along well with sharp tools, such as a cutter, with which we can even get to tear bits of the Case. The keys also do not get very well with the aluminum used, so we must take it into account when sharing pocket with them. That if, at the time of trying to double it, the Nokia 8 resists like the most.

But not only the aluminum used is of low quality, something we have to find that price so tight, but the glass with the protection Gorilla Glass 5 also does not offer much resistance to knocks or involuntary scratches, although in this test are all volunteers. After seeing these tests, we must take into account the use of a case if or for the back of the device but we want the first change to begin to show scratches.

Leaving aside the test of resistance, which happens in a very fair way, a determining factor when acquiring this terminal we find it will be the first terminals to receive the new versions of Android, thanks to the agreement reached with Google to be managed almost by the same version as the Google Pixel.

Nokia pays homage to the legendary 3310 at MWC

The Finnish company HMD, owner of the rights of the Nokia brand, sent an invitation to the press journalists for an event to be held on February 26: could unveil 3 new smartphones for the European market

The company during 2017 may have up to 7 Android smartphone, one of which, the Nokia 6, already on sale in China
The next 26 February Nokia 3310 pays homage to the legendary smartphone revealing some of the new line-up: the brand still want to impress people around the world with Nokia Nokia 3 and 5.

Nokia pays homage to the legendary 3310 presenting three smartphones at MWC

There was much talk of the return of Nokia in the smartphone market, and everyone expected a triumphal entry into the Android world, and so it was. With a line-up for 2017 with up to 7 devices equipped with the green of irons in the fire robot software for Nokia and HMD, the Finnish company that owns the rights to the brand , there is really great.

Presented recently, Nokia was the sixth highest grossing in China , with over a million pre-orders and stocks of shale flash disappeared in no time. HMD has now forwarded the invitation to the press to wait at a presentation event in which, in all probability, will present additional smartphones.

According to rumors it would be three terminals that may be presented: one speaks of two Android smartphones, Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, and a feature-phone inspired by the mythical Nokia 3310, the Nokia 150.

Nokia 5 could have a data sheet similar to the Nokia 6: processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM expandable (support dual-sim, Ed). But the display is resized, becoming 5.2″ HD resolution (1280 × 720 pixels), as well as the 12-megapixel camera.

Not much is known about Nokia 3 and its technical configuration, but being the offer according to the Android world we can assume a diagonal 5″ or less with HD resolution display and a Snapdragon processor 425 / Mediatek. Interestingly the price proposal for the whole line-up : in Europe the 3 Android configurations for the lower-middle end of the market should differ by only € 50 from each other. This would place the Nokia 6 to 249 €, the Nokia 5 to 199 € and the Nokia 3 to 149 €.

Even though most surprising of HMD / Nokia choosing to produce a feature-phone, a phone without advanced features but designed to be used mainly for what it is: a mobile device with which you can call and send messages. Nokia pays homage to the legendary 3310 with this new Nokia 150, a device that follows in the footsteps of his legendary predecessor, taking up the iconic features that have made it successful: extreme resistance, infinite battery and flawless reception. Very interesting is the price at which it is proposed, only 59 €: a device that could have a huge hit among nostalgic of the old glories of Nokia. Let’s just hope there’s Snake on board for fun in boring moments of the day.

The LG Quantum brings the best of both worlds

The LG Quantum is a multimedia phone that runs on the Windows Phone 7 operating system. It brings a full QWERTY keyboard, which added to its touch screen gives you possibilities in terms of interface that make them really comfortable to use for virtually any user type. The LG Quantum also comes bundled with a camera of 5 mega pixels that top it also comes paired with a flash that can take still pictures even when the indoor lighting is not the best for catches. All these specifications affect their physical form, causing that this model is slightly heavier than other smartphones on the market, although this is not presented as an inconvenience.

Technical specifications the LG Quantum brings the best of both worlds

For users who enjoy using a keyboard real instead of using the fingers on touch screens, this LG phone is a marvel. Of note the widespread phenomenon that has occurred in recent generations of smartphones: most are starting to let go of the QWERTY keyboard. The Quantum, however, decided to keep it, which undoubtedly will be grounds for debates and disputes among the critics. One of the “problems” that may entail the keyboard is that the phone thickness compared to winning the competition has chosen only by the touch screen, which as we have said also affects their weight.

This model comes with an internal memory of 16 GB, and while this amount is more than enough for most ordinary users, is a problem considering the fact this is no expandable memory, which can be a complication future. In short, this phone offers a touch screen to navigate, but also a keyboard to type: basically the best of both worlds.
