LG Smart ThinQ Hub Review

Posted on 06 January 2016

LG and Samsung have quite a rivalry going on. First Samsung introduced its Smart Things and now LG has its very own Smart ThinQ Hub. The metallic cylinder looks like small metallic cylinder and accompanies a pair of speakers so that you can listen to music while working around the house, to top it all off it also has a wide 3.5 inch LCD display that allows you to monitor notifications as you are on the go.

The Good
On the upside, the LG Smart ThinQ Hub allows you to connect various home appliances and pretty much acts like a personal assistant, monitoring and displaying reminders from your personal calendars all the while streaming music from its in build speakers, allowing you to listen to various tunes from iHeartRadio or other Bluetooth enabled devices.

The LG Smart ThinQ Hub makes your life easier by collecting information from all your home appliances such as your refrigerators, cleaners and dishwasher. This allows the user an added advantage to control home appliances via a single device instead of opting for a separate Smartphone app for each home appliance.

The Bad
The device has plenty of similarities to Amazon’s Echo and is pretty much a copy of the product including the similar cylindrical design and the inbuilt speakers.

Bottom Line
The LG Smart ThinQ Hub is available in gorgeous color schemes of Champagne Gold and Black and allows you to take control over all your home appliances. In addition, the LG Smart ThinQ Hub adds convenience to your life and will result in better savings.

The thoughtfully designed product is ideal for users who are always on the go and do not have time to check up on home much, however other users may find the device to be unnecessary and overpriced.

Huawei Mediapad M2 Review

Posted on 04 January 2016

Huawei’s is trying to penetrate the market for smart devices around the world. Huawei is a company that for years was focused more on price than on achieving the highest possible quality. It is the little things which makes it special and in that Huawei Mediapad has not disappointed.

That tablet has awesome speakers said no one ever until today. Huawei brings Mediapad M2, the latest 10 inch tablet, which features has Harman Kardon audio, with four speakers mounted on each corner; two on the top edge and two on the bottom. It is as loud as a Las Vegas Night Club, hear it to believe it. It has a surface pen with 2,048 pressure levels. A shinny slippery screen that looks, well really shiny.

Sadly, it has only two color choices, silver and the gold; on the other hand both versions are packed with 3G and 4G functionality.

A Look Inside

The Mediapad has an improved and enlarged display, stuffed with most recent specifications and features; which includes

    • 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution,
    • 16GB internal storage and 2GB of RAM (available in Silver model)
    • 64GB and 3GB of RAM (available in Gold model).
    • 4.0 Bluetooth connectivity
    • Wi-Fi 802.11
    • Non-removable Li-Po 4800 mAh
    • Android 5.1 Lollipop
    • Octa-core Kirin 930 processor
    • It certainly goes without saying that it is one powerful tablet.

Camera
Huawei took care of user demands for a more improved camera and so they decided to incorporate a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Bottom Line
The available performance will always be enough for routine use. Huawei’s Mediapad M2 belongs to the slimmer tablets of its class, which is comfortable to hold in one hand. This beautiful accessory has much to offer at an affordable price.

Overall, the Mediapad M2 8.0 makes a good impression and compels with its accurate build.
