Apple iPhone 6s vs OnePlus 2 vs Samsung GalaxyS6:Hot cake is.........................

Apple iPhone 6s                                                                                                                                           The iPhone 6s keeps the same design as the iPhone 6, but packs better cameras, a snappier processor and 3D Touch, a smart new way to get things done in fewer steps. Beyond that, the combination of iOS 9 and some well-built hardware help makes the 6s one of the best iPhones ever made... even if we wish it had some of the 6s Plus' niceties.Improved speed everywhere (new processor, faster wireless, quicker Touch ID sensor); a sturdier body; better front and rear cameras; a bold new 3D Touch pressure-sensitive display that could end up being a really useful tool in apps down the road, and which already offers new iOS shortcuts.    Performance
Providing the power behind the scenes on the iPhone 6 is a 1.39GHz dual-core A8 processor with 64-bit architecture and 1GB of RAM.
The iPhone 6 seemed to be the slicker of the two new iHandsets when it comes to chugging away under the finger, although when looking at the Geekbench 3 scores, we can see it's almost identical to the iPhone 6 Plus (average score of 2905 vs 2911 for the 6 Plus).
This puts it below 2015's crop of smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S6 andHTC One M9, but right with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and below the One M8 and One E8 - although HTC has admitted to slightly gaming those results with a special 'high power mode'.
In short, despite the dual-core processor, Apple seems to have eked out enough power to make the iPhone 6 a strong enough contender day to day.                                                                                            Battery Life
“Battery life could be a problem,” was my first thought when I started my iPhone 6S review, and with good reason. Wonderful though 3D Touch and the Taptic Engine are, Apple had to reduce the battery capacity from 1,810mAh to 1,715mAh to fit them in. It made the 6S slightly thicker and heavier, too, though not enough that anyone should care.
The iPhone 6 didn't have a stellar reputation for battery life, and while some of those complaints are overblown, they’re not without foundation. Certainly, the ‘Plus’ variant is the phone to go for if you suffer range “range anxiety”.
Through my week using the the iPhone 6S, I consistently managed 15 to 17 hours per day. Switching off Bluetooth and disabling the Facebook app’s background refresh made a big difference, though I always left Wi-Fi on.
For whatever reason, the Facebook app uses more background time than other app. Before the change Facebook was responsible for close to 25% of the phone’s battery drain, despite being on screen for just 20 minutes or so. iOS 9’s improved battery monitoring was a godsend here.                                                       Navigation puts a big strain on the battery, though, particularly in built-up areas. One 15-minute walk with directions drained 7% from the battery. Streaming video over Wi-Fi burns through around 12% of battery per hour, depending on the quality and how bright your screen is.
The new Low Power won’t extend your life indefinitely, but it’s useful and effective enough. iOS prompts you to turn it on when your battery hits 20% and it turns off all background activity, while also throttling down the CPU and GPU.
The iPhone is already frugal when idle, but Low Power extends that further still – I once got five hours of very light use after passing 20%, which is handy if you’re staying out late. And you can turn Low Power on earlier if you know you have a long day ahead – the iPhone 6S runs fine when it’s on.                   Ultimately, while some management is needed from time to time, I never felt like I would run out before I got home, and it would only concern me if I was on a “night out” and got home late. In those cases, a few simple precautions will avert problems.
Power users who stream video all day, use navigation lots or play games often should look at the 6S Plus, but the 6S’s battery life is fine for the majority of people.
But,Same battery life as the iPhone 6. The 6S Plus model remains the only way to get optical image stabilization for photos and video, plus better battery life. You'll need to pay extra to vault past the too-small storage of the entry-level 16GB version.
THE BOTTOM LINE The newest iPhones are top-to-bottom better phones with lots of enhancements; iPhone 6 owners don't need the upgrade, but everyone else should seriously consider it.
  Key Features: 4.7-inch, 326ppi LCD; 7.1mm thick; 143g; 1.8GHz Dual-Core; 2GB RAM; 16/64/128GB storage ; 12-megapixel iSight camera; 5-megapixel Facetime HD camera
Manufacturer: Apple                                                                                                                                VS
 OnePlus 2                                                                                                                                               One Plus two changes the old tradition and comes in removable metal frame. The magnesium alloy body and stainless steel buttons give premium look to the smartphone.The OnePlus 2 offers high-end performance at a low price, while not skimping on design. The rear camera delivers pretty good pictures as well. The OnePlus 2 has a couple of new features which were not there in OnePlus One. First one is a fingerprint sensor. Just like the other flagships like Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6, the fingerprint sensor is located in the home button.
Another new feature is USB Type-C, meaning the same slot acts as USB port and same is used to connect he charger.
  The phone comes with a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels which is covered up under a defensive Corning Gorilla Glass 4, likely the best sort as far as Corning gorilla glass, the most delightful and most tough. The OnePlus 2 is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor  which is compacted enough that it can undoubtedly gives most extreme joy amid operation in a mixed bag of modes and pleasant looking realistic graphic engine and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the OnePlus 2 packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. what most attractive aspect of the device is a dual LED flash light that makes it more decisive product. Video making would be opted for you to achieve ever best 2160p@30fps, 2160p(DCI)@24fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps results along with HDR and stereo sound recording also.  The OnePlus 2 runs OxygenOS 2.0 and is powered by a 3300mAh non removable battery. It measures 151.80 x 74.90 x 9.85 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 175.00 grams. The OnePlus 2 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts two Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks). Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope. Oneplus 2 is a handset specifically for those who enjoy playing ultimate 3D games and watching Blue ray videos, besides you may find under the hood remarkable two versions of internal storage (16GB and 64GB respectively) and what trash we find is the non availability of expendable card slot. The battery power in One Plus Two is also increased and the handset has non-removable 3300mAh battery which provides 30:29 hours talk-time, 8:05 hours web browsing and 8:28 hours on video playback. The battery consumes 150 minutes to charge completely.
But,There are a number of frustrating software issues with the OnePlus 2, including a sketchy fingerprint scanner and home button, slow dialer and confused messaging streams which take the shine off what is another strong contender from the Chinese firm.The phone lacks both fast and wireless charging and the USB Type-C port doesn't offer any performance benefits. Some software bugs hamper the user experience.
THE BOTTOM LINE The inclusion of a fingerprint scanner is a nice touch, adding to the premium persona the OnePlus 2 is trying to exude, while the beefed-up camera has a few neat tricks. The OnePlus 2 offers powerful hardware and beautiful design at a comparatively low price, but availability through the OnePlus invite system makes it hard to acquire.                                                                                                          Price:$390
                                                                                                                                                                    VS                                                                                                                                                     Samsung GalaxyS6's                                                                                                                                     The new super-skinny build does mean that this Samsung gets very warm in use, however. Actually, not warm, it gets plain hot. Finger-burning hot. This is something that's becoming more and more common with today's increasingly thin smartphones, particularly those that have metal bodies. But I'm pleased to report that even when it's got a fever on performance doesn't appear to be affected.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     The upscale Samsung Galaxy S6's smooth glass-and-matte-metal body, improved fingerprint reader, and convenient new camera shortcut key make the phone a stunner. Samsung's decluttered take on Android 5.0 brings the beauty inside, too.
But,Longtime fans will bristle at the Galaxy S6's nonremovable battery and absent expandable storage. The phone has an intensely reflective backing and looks embarrassingly like the iPhone 6. Battery life, while good, falls short of last year's Galaxy.
THE BOTTOM LINE Worldly looks and top-notch specs make the impressive, metal Samsung Galaxy S6 the Android phone to beat for 2015.
 Performance
Octa-core Exynos 7420 big.LITTLE Processor; Mali T760 GPU; 3GB RAM
The Galaxy S6 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop integrated with a newly streamlined version of TouchWiz and it’s incredibly snappy to use. One of the best features is the multi-window functionality – I used it frequently.
 Multi-window lets you open and use two apps simultaneously by holding down the option button or dragging from the top left corner of the screen. It’s great for writing an email while checking details online, or sharing posts from social media while talking about them with a friend on WhatsApp, for example.
Overall, the streamlined look and feel of the TouchWiz is a winner. We did experience a couple of instances where downloaded and native applications would randomly stop working, but we imagine this will be smoothed out fairly easily with updates.
TouchWiz gets a huge helping hand by the fact this is the most powerful smartphone on the market right now. Only the HTC One M9, with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, gets close to matching its performance.
 The credit goes to the 64-bit Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor and 3GB RAM – it’s the first time Samsung has used this chip in a phone. It seems that switching away from Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon processor in its flagship phone has paid off handsomely.
The Exynos 7420 processor has an advantage over the powerful Snapdragon 810 processor used by the HTC One M9 because the chip is smaller and more energy efficient. You can read the software and performance sections of our Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge review for a more detailed breakdown of how it compares to the competition, but needless to say the S6 impresses.
One of the best demonstrations of the Galaxy S6’s power is how smoothly it handles graphically intensive games like Real Racing 3 or Asphalt 8. There are no dropped frames whatsoever and the games are rendered better than we’ve seen on any other phone.                                                                         Battery life
 Battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Now we get to the real issue of this phone. It's not good enough, and that's hugely frustrating.
Let me put this into context: it's as good as the HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 in terms of being able to last just about through the day. Given that last year we were seeing phones that could easily make it to bed time without running out of juice, it's maddening that Samsung, like others, has gone backwards here.
The reason is simple: the battery pack in the new S6 is smaller than last year, 2550mAh compared to 2800mAh. The reduction is there solely so Samsung could make a slimmer phone, focusing on design over functionality. And unlike previous years, the battery can no longer be removed, taking away one of the big things fans loved about the phones.                                                                                                             Key Features: 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen; Octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset; Wireless Charging; 3GB RAM; 2,550mAh non-removable battery; Android 5.0 L with TouchWiz; Samsung Pay; IR Blaster

Vaio Z Flip vs Microsoft Surface Book:(Comparison)

Vaio Z Flip                                                                                                                                             The new Vaio Z Flip, an ultrathin 13-inch laptop. It's a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that's easy to read at most any angle, and doubles as a responsive touchscreen. Pictures, websites and games look great since the screen can display 100 percent of the SRGB color spectrum, delivering pure and vibrant color.The Vaio Z Flip has exceptional performance for a thin and light laptop, a crisp high-resolution screen and an attractive, functional design. This 2.95 lb. 2-in-1 laptop is a real powerhouse with 6th generation Intel dual core 28 watt CPUs and Intel Iris 550 graphics that are significantly more powerful than standard 15 watt/ Intel HD 520 graphics Ultrabook fare. it comes with an N-Trig digitizer and pen for notes and art. It has a strong aluminum and carbon fiber casing and a brilliant hinge design. The WQHD 2560 x 1440 is color accurate and easy on the eyes. The only catch? It's expensive.  The VAIO Z comes with Intel's 6th-generation 28W Skylake processor and a miniaturized motherboard. The extra room allows for fans and a larger battery: VAIO promises up to 11.5 hours of use on the flip model, Vaio said the model without a touchscreen, because it still features a Z-engine configuration and doesn’t need expend additional processing power for touchscreen, should last for up to a record-shattering 15.5 hours. While convertible viewing options and a touchscreen theoretically make the Z a more versatile, one-man-army of a device, an equally powerful laptop with super-charged battery life might make the less expensive model the better choice for power users.
but,Display is high-powered, but did not instantly impress.
Battery life in this expensive system is just adequate, not great. Loud fans and an overly glossy screen detract from the experience too.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Vaio Z seems poised to excel as a luxury object, regardless of whether or not it’s the best laptop on the market, but its price tag will certainly demand a high standard.For those willing to pay top dollar for a stylish, functional, highly portable PC, the Vaio Z Flip is impressive -- but you might do better with a Lenovo Yoga 900, MacBook Pro or Microsoft Surface Book.                                        Price:$1799
VS                                                                                                                                                         Microsoft Surface Book                                                                                                                             The Microsoft Surface Book packs high-end components, including new Intel processors and optional Nvidia graphics, into a smart, slim body. Some components and most of the battery are hidden in the base, so the tablet half is lighter. The high-res screen looks great, and the included stylus pen is excellent.               The Surface Book has 13.5-inch display offers 3,000 x 2,000 resolution for 267ppi. Microsoft also uses its new PixelSense technology which essentially means a very thin, closely bonded, glass screen for super responsive touch and stylus controls. The Surface Book, also all metal, offers a detachable screen that doubles as a tablet. But this has meant a slight increase in thickness to nearly 23mm when closed. The Surface Book display offers sixth-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 chip 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. While the tablet part of the Surface Book is limited to the Intel HD Graphic 520, there is a separate GPU in the keyboard section. This is an Nvidia GeForce processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The Surface Book offers plenty of connectivity options that vary and may appeal to different people's needs. The Surface Book offers two USB 3.0 ports and full microSD. The MacBook features an HDMI port where the Surface Book is limited to a Mini Display Port and using a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.                         The Surface Book is no ordinary Surface, sporting a sleek, all-silver, magnesium design with a unique, flexible hinge designed to keep the laptop's removable display from getting too wobbly. But while Microsoft mostly knocks it out of the park with its first laptop, the device is still a bit top-heavy, and opening the lid is more difficult than we'd like.  Microsoft’s Surface Book offers SSD storage options of 128 GB/256 GB/512 GB/1 TB. It also comes with a microSD slot. The new Microsoft tablet cum laptop hybrid bears an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP primary camera and will run on latest Windows 10.                                                 Microsoft is downplaying the Surface Book as a tablet by calling it "clipboard mode," but you can remove the Surface Book's screen to use as a humongous slate. This should be a big upgrade over the Surface Pro 3, as both the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 have big glass trackpads – a lot like Apple's MacBooks.      Battery life
Battery life on the Surface Book is both pretty good and surprisingly disappointing. While Microsoft has promised 12 hours of continual usage and other outlets report getting even more juice out of the machine, our best time for the device was 7 hours and 39 minutes. As for the Clipboard on its own, the tablet can last for 4 hours.
While these are more than respectable numbers considering all the hardware inside the Surface Book, I honestly expected a much longer run time. The good news is this notebook recharges quickly, going from zero to 100% charge in under two hours.
But,Configurations with the optional Nvidia GPU and more storage get very expensive. There are some first-generation quirks, including an awkward gap between the screen and base when closed.
THE BOTTOM LINE While it's not nearly as refined as the new fourth-gen Surface Pro, Microsoft's Surface Book is a powerful, feature-filled premium hybrid that doesn't forget it's a laptop first.                       Price:$1499.00

Samsung Series 7 Slate vs Asus Eee Slate EP121 vs Microsoft Surface Pro:Who is the boss?

Samsung Series 7 Slate                                                                                                                                 One of the Series 7 Slate's distinguishing features is its dual-input pen and touch digitizer. Samsung uses Wacom's technology, which in my experience provides the most fluid and accurate inking experience available.Samsung's Series 7 Slate is a powerful touch-screen Windows 7 PC, with a very Windows-8-like optional interface.The Series 7 tablet is sold worldwide, with different configurations offered in each region. In the US, at least, there are four pre-built models ranging in price from $1,099 to $1,349.
Across the board, it comes with that same Core i5-2467M processor and 4GB of RAM, and are rated for up to seven hours of battery life.The Samsung Series 7 Slate is the most attractive Windows 7 tablet going. It’s also the most powerful, and the one with the best accessories thanks to its included Wacom stylus, media dock and wireless keyboard. Other details, such as the 802.11 b/g/n radio, Intel HD 3000 graphics card and 1366 x 768 resolution are also non-negotiable.
But it suffers from some build-quality issues; Onscreen typing is finicky and headache-inducing. The sold-separately dock and keyboard are practically required.
The bottom line: Samsung’s Slate is pretty much the best Windows 7 tablet. The Samsung Series 7 Slate 700T is the fastest Windows 7 tablet we've tested, and paired with its optional accessories, it provides a very laptop-like experience, but one marred by the typical awkward onscreen Windows typing experience.

The 1,280x800 display resolution looks sharp and is large enough to watch native 720p video or browse the web with minimal horizontal scrolling. High Definition playback was impressively smooth thanks to Intel’s integrated graphics, which can also output to an external display using the mini-HDMI port.  With a sharp design and a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU, theAsus Eee Slate EP121 is a Windows tablet that doesn't feel like a toy.
but,The battery life is terrible. While we accept that this is due to the high-performance CPU and large screen, it doesn't make it a particularly easy pill to swallow. Starting at about $1,000, this is a lot more expensive than some other popular tablets, and no matter how good the hardware, Window 7 just isn't made for fingertip input.
THE BOTTOM LINE Asus has a fresh take on the oft-maligned Windows tablet in the fast-running Eee Slate EP121, a touch-screen slate coupled with its own Bluetooth keyboard.                                                 Key Features: 12.1in 1,280 x 800 IPS display, Gorilla Glass ; Intel Core i5-470UM, 4GB RAM, 64GB SSD ; Capacitive screen, Wacom digitizer with stylus; USB 2.0 and mini-HDMI, Bluetooth; Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

As a hybrid PC it's an undeniable compromise - but that's no bad thing.The Microsoft Surface Pro fits a full ultrabook experience in a compact 10-inch tablet. Thanks to the ingenious Type and Touch covers, it offers a comfortable interface and typing experience. The clean, crisp design and sharp 1080p screen rise above the competition.
But, The battery life is disappointing, and more ports would be nice. The 64GB model barely has any free storage. It costs as much as a regular laptop, especially because the cool keyboard cover isn't included by default.
The bottom line: The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.

Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 vs Acer Switch 10 E :What's your choice?

Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70                                                                                                                             The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 is an affordable tablet with a full HD screen. The Tab 2's 10-inch, 1920 x 1200 IPS display provides sharp, colorful images. The brightness of the Tab 2's screen at 380 nits, which is higher than the category average (354), the Iconia Tab 10 (369) and the ZenPad S 8.0 (299). Despite modest specs, Lenovo's budget slate provides solid performance and really strong battery life while running a clean version of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The pre-loaded Dolby app significantly improves audio quality. It has a microSD card slot to increase its base storage capacity. The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 is powered by 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8165 processor and it comes with 2GB of RAM. That’s a combination that should give this tablet decent performance.  The tablet packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 packs a 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. Both cameras take clear, detailed pictures, even in low light, and the front-facing camera is great for video calls. The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 runs Android 4.4 and is powered by a 7000mAh non removable battery. which Lenovo says will last for up to 10 hours on a single charge. It measures 171.00 x 247.00 x 8.90 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 509.00 grams. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Sensors on the tablet include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer.
but, The slate offers a bright IPS display panel with Full-HD resolution, a decent quad-core SoC and an above-average sound system.Large games take a undesirably long time to load. Its performance is uninspiring. The tablet feels uncomfortable after holding it for a long time. .
THE BOTTOM LINE The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 has a great display for the price, but lags behind higher-end Android tablets in terms of performance.The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 offers one of the sharpest HD screens for the price, making it an attractively affordable option for heavy video-watchers.                             Price:$199

It comes in at 9.6 x 6.6 x 0.3 inches, and 1.1 lbs., which means it’s thin and light enough to use comfortably for hours.
But,Performance just adequate,Minimal internal storage capacity,Fairly low resolution display,
 The screen's low resolution looks pixelated on the 9.7-inch screen. Given its average specs, its $299 price feels too expensive.
THE BOTTOM LINE The 9.7-inch model is the larger, and it has a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 16 GB of built-in storage, The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is satisfyingly simple tablet, but its lackluster screen and relatively high price make it forgettable.                                                                                                Price:$299

More than 13 hours of battery life. Bright In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen with wide viewing angles. Included keyboard also adds hard drive storage. Solid connectivity. Dual-band Wi-Fi.this 2-in-1 is a lightweight solution for students or mobile pros who work from 9 to 5, and leaves a little left over in the tank for overtime.
but,with the low resolution of the screen coupled with high glare, weak speakers, limited ports and long recharge time. The 10.1-inch screen looks even smaller surrounded by a thick black bezel. The system is so top heavy it easily tips over, and the touchscreen is not always as responsive as it should be.
THE BOTTOM LINE There are a lot of 2-in-1 system out there, many with better performance and features for almost the same price as the Switch 10 E.Despite extra storage space and a pleasing design, the Acer Switch 10 E suffers from a low-budget feel.                                                                                            Specs:                                                                                                                                                       Display size/resolution: 10.1-inch 1,280x800 touchscreen                          PC CPU: 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735                     PC Memory: 2048MB DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz   Graphics: 32MB (dedicated) Intel HD Graphics     Storage: 32GB Flash Memory + 500GB HDD   Networking: 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0     Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (32-bit)                                                                Price:$349

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact vs Nexus 9 :Most favorite is....................

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2
The Mi Pad 2 is designed as an Android tablet, Xiaomi also announced a Windows 10 version.The new Mi Pad 2 has an all-metal construction that's much more similar to the iPad mini. Xiaomi says the Mi Pad 2 is lighter and thinner than the first-generation Mi Pad, and comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 64GB of internal storage, and a 7.9-inch, 2048 x 1536 resolution screen. The company has also swapped out the Mi Pad's original Nvidia Tegra K1 chip that powered the first Mi Pad for Intel's 64-bit Atom X5-Z8500 processor, which allows it to run Microsoft's new operating system. Xiaomi did not, however, announce any accessories, such as a keyboard or stylus for use with the Windows 10 version of the tablet, and given the tablet a reversible USB Type-C port, making it one of the few available devices to sport the new connector. This may actually be a slight inconvenience, since you won't be able to charge the tablet with the more widely used micro-USB cables. and it comes with 2GB of RAM.It packs 16GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 packs a 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 runs Android and is powered by a 6190mAh non removable battery. The Mi Pad 2 is a bit thicker, It measures 200.40 x 132.60 x 6.95 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 322.00 grams. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is a single SIM () smartphone. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.                                                                                                       THE BOTTOM LINE:  The body is made from metal but is thinner and lighter than the MiPad. It’s 322 grams and 6.95mm thick, which for comparison is slightly thicker and heavier than the 298 gram, 6.1mm thick Apple iPad Mini 4 — the device which Xiaomi is likely targeting with the MiPad 2. The price is a very reasonable $155 respectively.                                                                                                                       Price: $155                                                                                                                                                 VS                                                                                                                                                           Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact                                                                                                                It's a stunningly thin and light, premium Android tablet that gets almost everything right. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact stuffs a heap of power and a good display into an extremely slim, waterproof body. There's no doubt the Z3 Tablet Compact looks great. It's amazingly slim at just 6.4mm and weighs just 270g, While its ability to act as a screen for a PlayStation 4 can be shaky at times, it's a novel feature not found on other Android tablets. The tablet comes with a 8.00-inch display with a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1200 pixels. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is powered by 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and it comes with 3GB of RAM. The tablet packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact packs a 8.1-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 2.2-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact runs Android 4.4 and is powered by a 4500mAh non removable battery. It measures 123.00 x 213.00 x 6.40 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 280.00 grams. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC. Touch to connect your Xperia Android™ device with your NFC-enabled SmartWear. Get notifications, control your music and more directly from your SmartWear, while life logging everywhere you go. Battery life when playing video at normal brightness levels is fantastic, making it perfect for making any long-haul flights more bearable.
THE BAD Value isn't top-notch when the second-teir iPad mini is so much cheaper, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 offers extra features at the same price. Sony has filled the interface up with so much pre-loaded software that it looks cluttered before you've even downloaded your first app. Opting for a higher resolution display would help it compete against many of its rivals.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is an attractive and powerful Android tablet which comes with some neat exclusive features The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact's wealth of power, its skinny, waterproof body and decent screen make it a good option to consider if you're after a portable tablet. Although its screen resolution doesn't put it over its competitors, its ability to play games from your PS4 -- although not perfect yet -- gives it a unique selling point.                                                             Price:$499
VS                                                                                                                                                         Nexus 9                                                                                                                                                   The Nexus 9 is a bit of a weird one - it's both the replacement for the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10, without really being a sequel to either thanks to the all-new 8.9-inch screen.
For the eagle eyed among you, you may notice it's jumped up a place in our rankings. That's because it can now be picked up for around £210, making it super affordable. It'll likely be replaced in the next month when Google launches a new slate - but for now it's a steal.
It's mimicking the iPad range by going for a 4:3 screen ratio (which means wider viewing for web browsing, but annoying black bars above and below when watching movies) so you've got a wider device that's not quite able to be gripped in one hand.
But that doesn't mean it's not a great tablet, helped by the fact it's made by HTC. The brand has brought over its Boomsound speakers for greater front facing audio, and the screen is certainly high resolution too.     Weight: 425g | Dimensions: 228.2 x 153.7 x 8mm | OS: Android 5.0 | Screen size: 8.9-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Dual-core 2.3 GHz | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16/32GB | Battery: 6700 mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.6MP  

Acer Iconia W510 vs Apple iPad Air vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1:Best performer is.........................

Acer Iconia W510                                                                                                                                     The Iconia W510 is a fairly attractive little machine. It’s constructed entirely of plastic with a nice combination of a predominantly plain silver faux-metal finish and matt white highlights.The Acer Iconia W510 is less expensive than some other Atom-based hybrids, and its detachable tablet screen is light and portable.10.1-inch IPS screen, 1366 x 768; Dual-core 1.8GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB SSD; 295 degree twist hinge turns keyboard into stand; Up to 18hrs battery life; Windows 8 convertible with keyboard dockThe Iconia W510 is so very portable. At 10.1-inches and weighing less than two pounds, it fits easily in a bag or large purse, and you'll likely forget you're even carrying it. Battery life is excellent.
But, There also aren't enough ports on the thing. One full size USB port is tough to swallow, especially since you'll like use it up with a wireless mouse to compensate for the W510 miserable touchpad.In laptop mode, the system is awkwardly top-heavy, and the puny keyboard and touch pad are not designed for serious use.
The bottom line:  Touchscreen laptops are common, as are ultrabooks that want to be tablets, and now we've even got portable all-in-ones like the Acer W700. Full Windows 8 or not, the Acer W510 is a tablet, though it wishes it were a convertible ultrabook.Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

Apple iPad Air                                                                                                                                             The Air is a tangible upgrade over the previous, fourth-generation iPad, no longer in production and so banished to the annals of history. The new iPad slots right in where its predecessor left off, priced at $499 for a lowly 16GB, $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64GB, and $799 for the maximum 128GB configuration. The iPad Air delivers more performance and comparable battery life in an attractive and impossibly thin-and-light package. An improved front-facing camera makes FaceTiming look better, and the Retina Display still looks great.
The iPad Air shares the same processor with Apple’s flagship phone, albeit with a slight bump in clock speed. While the 5S runs at 1.3GHz the Air runs at 1.39GHz. It can achieve this because of the increased space and improved heat dissipation of the Air compared to the much smaller iPhone 5S.
Indeed, before we go into the detail about performance it’s worth noting that the iPad Air manages to keep its cool with consummate ease. Even when running intensive 3D games and apps for hours it barely breaks a sweat and, therefore, neither do your hands.
In practice, the iPad Air is blisteringly fast. Apps open instantly and games like Infinity Blade 3 look sumptuous and run smoothly. The benefits of having a SoC means that the GPU can be used to tackle compute tasks, which makes video editing and compute intensive apps, like AutoCAD, show no hint of slowdown.
The iPad Air performs 59% faster than the iPad 4 in the 3D Mark Ice Storm Unlimited CPU and GPU test and 91% faster in Geekbench 3 tests. The Peacekeeper browser test, which assesses web browsing performance, shows that the Air trounces its predecessor by being more than twice as fast. It's also faster than the stonking Snapdragon 800 processor on the likes of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Google Nexus 5. We're talking matter of degrees here, but the difference is there all the same.
Battery life:                                                                                                                                                   Battery life on the iPad Air is quoted at "Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music". We would say that's actually not a bad estimate, although the drain was closer to 2% every 10 minutes in general use, which equates to around nine hours' use.
Standby time is much, much better though. We found that we could stick the iPad Air in a bag, taking it out for the commute and messing about with on the sofa at home, for at least three days before it began to get low on battery.
In fact, the only real task that killed it was connecting to our amplifier via Wi-Fi while simultaneously streaming music to the same device through Bluetooth. It's doing things like this that make you realise that this is the kind of thing that we envisaged at the turn of the century, a tablet that has the brains and connectivity to do all the tasks we could want.In terms of connectivity, we've already mentioned the excellent Wi-Fi performance (in terms of distance from router, rather than improved speed) through the Multiple In, Multiple Out (MIMO) technology.
4G bands are now covered throughout the globe, and low power Bluetooth is also on board as well, making it an incredibly well-connected device.                                                                                                     But, The Touch ID fingerprint scanner, introduced on the iPhone 5S, is sadly absent here, meaning you’ll still have to type in a passcode with every unlock and a password with every purchase. Starting at $499 for 16GB, it’s still expensive compared with the competition. 
The bottom line: Functionally, the iPad Air is nearly identical to last year’s model, offering only faster performance and better video chatting. But factor in design and aesthetics, and the iPad Air is on another planet. It’s the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.                                                                          Specifications

Samsung's S Pen stylus feels perfectly at home with this stunning screen, turning the tablet into a sketchpad, a notebook, a virtual scrapbook, and much more beside.The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 sports a proven, sensible design, a bevy of useful features, and fast performance. The S Pen Stylus is a unique addition.The 2014 Note 10.1 has a non-removable 8,220mAh battery. That's significantly larger than the 7,000mAh battery of the last model, but it's needed because of the higher-resolution screen.
To give the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 more of a chance against its competitors, we turned off most of the Samsung extras, such as the eye-monitoring Smart Stay before setting the tablet to play a looped SD-quality video. It lasts for a fairly impressive 12 hours of video playback.
But, Only a limited number of apps make full use of the S Pen and some of the ones that do can be buggy and confusing. Some S Pen features aren't enabled by default and others don't work properly.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is the best Samsung tablet yet. If you can get over its somewhat high price, it's a sound Android tablet investment.                                                                         Specifications

Asus Vivo Tab RT vs Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 vs Apple iPad 4 :Best performer is.....................

 Asus Vivo Tab RT                                                                                                                                 The Asus Vivo Tab RT offers a super Windows 8 experience in a lightweight package. Asus' Vivo Tab RT features the Windows RT's elegant and refreshing user interface, has a bright and rich screen, and is equipped with a keyboard dock for maximizing productivity. The VivoTab RT has a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor (1.4GHz in single-core use) and has 2GB of system memory, as with all Tegra 3-based Windows RT tablets (including Microsoft's Surface). Nvidia says that the Tegra 3 supports Microsoft's Connected Standby mode under Windows RT, so you can read email, view calendar entries, and check news headlines, with minimal impact on battery life up to 15hr battery life.  The Vivo Tab RT's 10.1-inch Super IPS+ panel 1366 x 768 is a set of numbers you should get familiar with. It's probably the resolution of your laptop, and it's probably going to be the resolution of your Windows 8 device if you buy into this fall's lineup. offering superb brightness of 600 Nits and excellent clarity. Pixel density isn't anywhere near as high as an Apple iPad 3 or a top-spec Android tablet, but it’s not bad. It’s covered with Corning Fit Glass, a toughened surface similar to Gorilla Glass.
But, Sluggish SSD; Netbook-size keyboard; Touchpad doesn't yet support Windows 8 gestures; Limited app selection The Vivo Tab RT's keyboard is cramped, its operating system takes some time to get used to, and both its app store and Desktop interface are severely limited.
The bottom line: The ASUS Vivo Tab RT offers a bright display, thin and light design and long-lasting docking station with its own battery, but the Windows Store needs more apps. With its vivid screen, sturdy build, and sleek user interface, the Asus Vivo Tab RT is an excellent tablet in its own right -- but it can't beat the innovative Microsoft Surface RT.                                                                                               Specifications

All-day battery life makes it great for travel.                                            Performance and Battery Life:                                                                                                                     Put a full version of Windows 8 on a tablet you're in for a bit of a juggle, just ask the Microsoft Surface Pro. You've got two balls to keep in the air: processing power and battery longevity. While the ThinkPad Tablet 2 often fumbles with the former, it flourishes with the latter.
Unlike the Surface Pro or the Surface RT, which are powered by an Intel i5 and an ARM processor respectively, this tablet has an Intel Atom chip. You may remember this processor from the netbook era of a few years ago, before tablets came along and cleaned their clocks. Now the Atom is back to power Windows 8 slates, like this and the Acer Iconia W510.The ThinkPad Tablet 2 handled web browsing well enough, with Internet Explorer at least. Sites load at an acceptable speed, and we were able to begin scrolling down the page almost instantly, before images and video embeds finished loading. Google Chrome, as well as the Google app, performed poorly though. There's an obvious need for a patch or two here.
The system had just enough grunt for some light multitasking. Using Window 8's neat split-screen feature, we could watch run a YouTube video while browsing news headlines in the Bing Daily news app. We also enjoyed listening to music via the Music app while playing some Angry Birds or Cut the Rope.
That's the limit of the ThinkPad Tablet 2's gaming and multitasking abilities. The low-wattage Atom processor is meant for battery life, not blazing speeds. Lenovo estimates the battery life at 10 hours. We generally came in around 8 hours, after taxing it with heavy web use and streaming video. That's not bad at all, enough to get you through the average work day, or to watch several movies on a long flight.While we enjoyed the battery life the Atom provided, it had us wondering why it was paired up with Windows 8. What's the point of making a device with wide compatibility if it doesn't have the horsepower to run the most important legacy apps? Food for thought, especially if you're between this and the more powerful but not as long lasting Microsoft Surface Pro, or just a regular old laptop.
But, The Tablet 2 is expensive, especially considering the small 64GB SSD, lack of USB 3.0, and generally slow Atom performance.
The bottom line: This Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo scores with great industrial design and battery life, but adding practically required accessories makes the ThinkPad Tablet 2 very expensive for what you get.

Improved worldwide cellular compatibility makes the LTE model a more appealing proposition. And the iOS App Store remains best in class, with the widest selection.The iPad range remains among the best in class for battery life considering their size and weight, providing a genuine 10hrs use between charges and lasting for weeks in standby.Gaming tends to cause the biggest drain on battery life but you’ll still get 6-7 hours solid play from even the most demanding 3D titles.
But, The fourth-gen iPad is otherwise identical to its recent predecessor -- same size, weight, and Retina screen. It's heavy to hold in one hand, and most older accessories won't work without investing in a pricey Lightning adapter.
The bottom line: The latest iPad adds several tweaks and improvements to secure its position at the top of the tablet heap. It's better all around, but third-gen owners need not apply.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Specifications

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus vs Acer Aspire S7 vs Apple MacBook Air :Winner is.........................

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus                                                                                                                           High-resolution display boasts 3,200-by-1,800 resolution and 10-finger touch. Slim lightweight design. Premium materials. Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB solid-state drive keep things speedy. Long battery life. Dual-band Wi-Fi. Hinge stands up to touch but still opens wide. The Ativ Book 9 Plus laptop has a sturdy, slim design, ultra-high-res touch screen, and really good battery life.  The ATIV Book 9 Plus delivers bright images with deep, saturated colors and wide viewing angles. Everything has a sort of knife-edge sharpness that makes you not want to look away. The ATIV Book 9 Plus lasted 7 hours and 54 minutes on a charge.
But, A bit heavier than other ultraportables; Some bloatware .Costs several hundred more than we’d prefer; shrunken HDMI port; doesn’t convert to a tablet form -- strictly a laptop.
The bottom line: Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Plus is a gorgeous, aluminum-clad ultraportable with a vibrant quad-HD touch screen and fairly strong battery life. If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.                                                              Specifications

From its sleek build to its super sharp touchscreen and glowing keyboard, this laptop looks and feels futuristic. The Acer Aspire S7 is a premium-looking ultrabook, with great performance, strong battery life, and a high-res touch screen. Acer's leading laptop measures 12.72 x 8.78 x 0.51 inches (W x D x H) and weighs 2.87 pounds, making it one of the lightest 13.3-inch laptops We really liked the inclusion of the Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 13.3-inch Multi-touch FHD Acer CineCrystal LCD, and 256GB of storage. The battery life with this device is great and the fact that it's only 2.9lbs means that we'll be rocking this baby for a while.
But, That super HD display is a bit of a double-edged sword overall. For one, only the fastest, most expensive wireless internet connections can handily stream media at 1440p. The expensive S7 is priced well beyond most other touch-screen Windows 8 laptops. The touch pad is not as responsive as it should be.
The bottom line:  The Aspire S7 for its cutting edge build, fine typing experience and premium specs.  One of the few standout products from the first wave of Windows 8 laptops, the Acer Aspire S7 proves that Apple does not have a monopoly on great design.                                                                                                 Specifications

The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.                                       The new Haswell processors use very little power, giving the 2013 13-inch MacBook Air and absolutely stunning battery life. In our test, in which we streamed the live BBC News channel feed on iPlayer over a wireless network, the laptop lasted for nine hours. That's significantly better than the 11-inch MacBook Air's 7 hours 15 minutes, and a substantial improvement over the 2012 MacBook Air's 5.5 hours.
Since switching to solid state storage off the shelf with the late 2010 update, the MacBook Air has been known for its good battery life. But with the Haswell processors in place, it's absolutely stunning. At last, you can use your notebook all day long on a single charge.
But, Newer features such as touch screens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.
The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Specifications

Razer Edge Pro vs Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro:Who is the King of performance?

Razer Edge Pro                                                                                                                                      The Razer Edge Pro comes with an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce graphics, which can handle even demanding games like BioShock Infinite. Razor Edge Pro is a stylish design tablet with excellent power of graphic with innovative peripheral game pad. It has a glossy display of 10.1 inch with build of solid quality. It is very expensive as it runs heavy 3D games with full resolution of 1366*768. CPU model is Core i7 with speed of 1.9GHz Intel Ivory Bridge. Razor Edge Pro has a RAM size of 8GB with internal storage size of 128 or 256GB and external storage is none in this tablet. You can connect internet through Wi-Fi only. Different sensors are used in this window tablet which are Accelerometer, Proximity, Magnetometer/compass, Ambient light and Gyroscope. The battery type is Lithium Polymer with a size of 5600 mAh. Gaming-optimized Windows 8 tablet with onboard Nvidia graphics; offers plenty of ways to play games via extra accessories; relatively easy setup.
But, The Gamepad also makes it quite heavy. You'll be most comfortable playing it in bed, at a desk or on the couch, not on the bus. And you'll probably look pretty odd pulling it out in public. Gaming performance trails that of comparably priced gaming laptops; lacks 1080p screen; design is thicker and heavier than other Windows 8 tablets; lacks Ethernet and SD slot; battery life runs short when gaming; price skews high when accessories are factored in.
The bottom line: The Razer Edge is an awesome toy that's a bit ahead of its time. The Razer Edge is one of the most inventive PC gaming devices in years, but you'll pay a premium for portability and proprietary add-ons.                                                                                                                                                       Specifications

It's equipped with one full-size USB 3.0 port, a headset jack, a microSD card slot, and micro HDMI port.The inclusion of an S-Pen and keyboard dock help make the Core i5-powered Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T a formidable multitasking tablet.The Samsung's 4 cell Lithium Ion polymer battery puts in a relatively good showing here and we averaged 5.5 to 6 hours of actual use time on a charge with WiFi on and brightness set to 50% with auto-brightness turned on. That's about an hour better than Surface Pro but an hour short of the Acer W700.
But, Battery life isn’t great for a tablet; it lacks laptop-style features like Ethernet and a standard SD card slot; plus, it’s even more expensive than the Surface Pro.
The bottom line: The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T walks the line between ultrabook-level laptop and tablet, but doesn’t truly excel at either.                                                                                                       Specifications

As a hybrid PC it's an undeniable compromise - but that's no bad thing.The Microsoft Surface Pro fits a full ultrabook experience in a compact 10-inch tablet. Thanks to the ingenious Type and Touch covers, it offers a comfortable interface and typing experience. The clean, crisp design and sharp 1080p screen rise above the competition.
But, The battery life is disappointing, and more ports would be nice. The 64GB model barely has any free storage. It costs as much as a regular laptop, especially because the cool keyboard cover isn't included by default.
The bottom line: The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
