Apple’s iPad Pro bridges the gap between tablet and laptop with the help of some nifty proprietary accessories. Though not totally unoriginal, the iPad Pro is undeniably a response to the Microsoft Surface, which has been out for years now. That’s totally normal though, as Apple and Microsoft have been biting off each other back and forth since their inception. Like the Surface, Apple doesn’t include the iPad Pro’s accessories with the device. We’d have liked to have seen the Smart Keyboard and Apple pencil included, but it’s not surprising.

Apple iPad Pro

Okay, so what exactly is the difference between the iPad and the iPad Pro? The iPad Pro can do anything a normal iPad can do, but its sheer size, more powerful A9X chip and inclusion of the Apple Pencil & Smart Keyboard set it apart. Though it can do everything a tablet can do and more, it can’t do everything a laptop can do, just some things. It doesn’t have a disk drive of course, USB port, memory card slot, HDMI output or a full sized keyboard.

It’s large 12.9” high definition screen is as vibrant as on any other Apple device. It’s incredibly thin at only 6.9mm. It features an 8mp rear camera and a 1.2mp front facing camera that captures 720p video, but let’s face it, the iPad Pro is too big to be holding up in the air and snapping pictures. The iPad Pro comes with 32-128GB of internal storage depending on which model you buy, and all models come with 4GB of RAM.

The graphics processing of the iPad Pro is far superior from the any of the iPads. Its proprietary A9X chip is basically a faster, updated version of what they’re using in the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. As it’s brand new, there are some formatting and support issues with various games and apps, but the vast majority will work fine on the iPad Pro. The iPad Pro’s biggest drawback is that it is completely unadjustable. If you don’t like the viewing angle that it sits at with the Smart Keyboard connected, tough luck. Microsoft’s Surface however is completely adjustable.

As expected, the iPad Pro includes a fingerprint sensor to keep your device secure. Its battery should last around 10 hours with intensive use. It comes in space gray, silver and gold. Retail prices are currently around $640 for just the iPad Pro at 32GB.

Apple Smart KeyboardJust like the Microsoft Surface, the battery-less Smart Keyboard connects magnetically and doubles as a cover for the iPad Pro. Typing is satisfactory as each key is rigid and has a ‘click’ response that you kind of need to feel like you’re actually typing something. It lacks some shortcut keys, a trackpad and palm rest. These things aren’t essential, but their absence takes some getting used to. It costs roughly an extra $140.

Apple Pencil

The approximately 90-dollar Apple Pencil is fantastic for drawing. You can’t really use it like a stylus, though it can do some things. You’ll still need to use your fingers pretty much constantly with the iPad Pro. The Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive, which allows you to shade and use it pretty much the same way you would if you were sketching with a real pencil. But why would you spend $1,000 to do something to can do for less than $1? Undoubtedly, the novelty of the Apple Pencil is attractive enough to draw some artists in, no pun intended. The Apple Pencil is just a neat accessory to have—another example of how fascinated we are by technology imitating real life.

Samsung is getting ready to release its enormous entertainment tablet, the Galaxy View. Its massive display and special home screen filled with streaming app shortcuts make it more of a smart TV than a tablet. It has all of the functions you would expect from one of its smaller Galaxy siblings except that it’s a wi-fi only device and there is no S pen functionality. The Galaxy View’s specs include an 18.4” full 1080p display, a 2.1 megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot, and a 5700 mAh battery to power it all. From a full charge, the View’s battery is supposed to last for eight hours of constant viewing. The View also packs a 1.6GHz octa-core CPU. It comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop and can run all the apps that a normal tablet can.

There’s no sense in lugging around a tablet this big. As it’s the largest Android device ever made, it’s meant to be kept in the home and only brought from room to room. The idea is that it would be like a portable TV. You could set it up in the kitchen while you’re cooking, or bring it to bed to watch an episode of your favorite series before sleeping.

At around $500, the Samsung Galaxy View isn’t cheap. It doesn’t have the state of the art specs to even back up a price tag like that. It doesn’t have the state of the art specs to even back up a price tag like that. But what it does have is immense size, and that’s what you’re paying for. At just 120ppi, it’s not exactly QHD, but from what we’ve seen so far, the screen is still pretty crisp.

The stand on the back of the Galaxy View, which also acts as a handle, is non-removable. That means it can never lay flat, but will instead be angled when you lay it down. Samsung is experimenting with this odd product. Could this be the first of a new wave of super-sized tablets to hit the market? After the Galaxy View’s Nov. 6th release date, we’ll see if consumers and competitors follow Samsung’s lead.

Toshiba’s New Dynabook Prototype Could Give the iPad Pro a Run for its Money http://reviewtech.info/toshibas-new-dynabook-prototype-could-give-the-ipad-pro-a-run-for-its-money/ http://reviewtech.info/toshibas-new-dynabook-prototype-could-give-the-ipad-pro-a-run-for-its-money/#respond Tue, 15 Sep 2015 01:49:28 +0000 http://reviewtech.info/?p=1960 At the IFA 2015, Toshiba gave us a peek at a beautiful new prototype in the works which has yet to have an official name.

At the IFA 2015, Toshiba gave us a peek at a beautiful new prototype in the works which has yet to have an official name. The prototype, simply referred to as “the Dynabook,” is incredibly thin and sleek. It comes in two forms, a hybrid with a detachable keyboard, or a tablet. It’ll run Windows 10 and include TruNote, TruRecorder and TruCapture. The prototype is meant to be the digital form of a pen and paper for “quickly and effectively capturing information,” says Toshiba. Nifty indeed.

Toshiba Dynabook StylusThough details are still sketchy, here’s what else has been confirmed so far. The Dynabook will harbor an Intel Atom processor (most likely either the x5-Z8500 or the 8700), and feature a 12-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. It will utilize a digitizing stylus, which attaches to the side of the tablet, and will also include a touchpad. The Dynabook also comes with front and rear cameras, an audio connector, a micro SD card slot, and a mini-HDMI one port.

The Dynabook looks somewhat similar to some products already on the market, such as 2012 Archos 101 XS or one of Microsoft’s Surface models, but there is at least one notable difference between them and the Dynabook. The Dynabook’s detachable keyboard attaches to the tablet magnetically. That prevents the user from turning the tablet vertically and still using the keyboard—a strange move considering that the positioning of the cameras and Toshiba logo suggest that the tablet is meant to be operated vertically in the first place. Let’s keep in mind though that the new Dynabook is still just a prototype, and there may be some kinks for Toshiba to work out before it hits the streets.

Apple’s iPad Pro could have some hefty competition when Toshiba drops their attractive new Dynabook. The price and release date are still unknown, but this ultra thin machine could be out in time for the holiday season.

A tablet for gaming – nVidia shield http://reviewtech.info/a-tablet-for-gaming-nvidia-shield/ http://reviewtech.info/a-tablet-for-gaming-nvidia-shield/#respond Sat, 09 May 2015 14:04:25 +0000 http://reviewtech.info/?p=764 A short review about the tablet created for gaming - the nVidia shield.

The post A tablet for gaming – nVidia shield appeared first on Review Tech.

]]>
Though released and announce long time ago, I decided to make a short review of this extraordinary device, made from nVidia especially for gaming. But what makes it so special? Super GPU? Continue reading and you will find out.

Now we all know that when it comes to graphic performance and video cards, nVidia is a winner. So they decided to make a gaming tablet, which gives the best gaming experience for the tablet users, but did they succeed in this? In fact they did, but the real question I would rather ask is “are tablets capable of giving good gaming experience?”. This is the question we should think more about, because in the last quarters, the tablet as a device has lost big percentages in the market. Hybrid devices, ultrabooks and super phablets seem to be overtaking, but that’s none of my business. Let’s take a closer look at the nVidia shield:

Design

nVidia TabletAs you can see in the picture on the left (click on it), you will see that nVidia really tried to give their best in this device. A stylus, thermal shields and some serious glass protection. Overall I would say that the device has really good design, though it is a bit small to me with it’s 8” display.

Display

As just mentioned, the display is an 8” one, having the resolution of 1920x1200px (a bit better than full hd). No idea if the display is IPS or not, but I think this is not a big issue.

Performance

When talking to performance, this tablet has a lot to say. The nVidia shield has NVIDIA® Tegra® K1 192 core Kepler GPU which is shortly more than enough to run everything on your tablet when it comes to graphics.

The CPU is 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A15, which in combination of 2GB RAM will give you really smooth performance and experience.

Extras

The standard extras like microSD card, 4G capability and latest version of Bluetooth are here. There are though two extras I would really like to mention here – the camera and the stylus. I take the camera as an extra, because if you are playing games, it is the last thing you will need (except if streaming). The cameras on this tablet (both back and front) are 5mpx, put by nVidia especially for streaming games (as well the microphone support from the jack).

Conclusion

I am really waiting for a new version of this device, as it is a little bit old for me, because I think that there is really something new that nVidia could bring into the mobile gaming market. Still I must admit that this is one of the best gaming portable touchscreen devices available at the moment. With its ability to play 4K videos, this is also one of the most powerful tablets for its price at the moment.

Tablets are useful in many cases – while doing business, watching movies on a lightweight device, playing games and so on. I personally have had 2 tablets, but have used much more and am sure tablets are yet irreplaceable, because of their size and mobility. I decided to give my top choices for tablets, when choosing them on a low budget. Don’t get confused, there are also cheap and fast tablets, of course they are not perfect, but you will find something that suits your budget and needs for sure.

The main factor here to consider is the OS of the tablet, meaning that it would be somehow impossible to buy a “cheap iPad”. Apple devices are not cheap, may be you can find a good one 2nd hand, but never 1st. That’s why the tablets I will suggest will be only Android ones. Let’s start:

The old Nexus 7 (2012)

Nexus 7 (2012)

The old and famous Google Nexus 7, a tablet which you can find for a really low price now. Google stopped maintaining it, as well manufacturing it, so shops who haven’t sold it out will lower the prices.

The tablet itself is not that bad, maybe the screen will be too small for you (I personally prefer 10 inches displays), but for the performance and its price, I would say this tablet is totally fine.

Acer Iconia Series

Acer Iconia Models

Acer has been known as a fairly cheap pc manufacturer (as well notebooks), so the same is valid for their tablets. The series of Acer Iconia models are quite good tablets offering good performance for a really low price. Unfortunately, here the screen is not much bigger, mainly it is 7-8”, but on a low budget, you cannot have big screen and good performance (for example 1440p display and octa-core cpu).

Lg G Pad 8

Lg G Pad 8

Surprisingly LG tries to join the tablet market, whether this action is successful or not I cannot tell for now, but what I can tell you is that the G Pad 8.0 from LG is carrying a fast quad-core CPU and is waiting for an Android 5.0 update soon. For the price this tablet comes, I think the reasons to buy this tablet are already there. Oh and the display is IPS as well.

Asus Transformer Pad

Asus Transformer Pad

Maybe this is the tablet you are looking for – dual-core Intel Atom CPU, 10” IPS Display and attached keyboard support. Just a little bit more expensive than the others mentioned above, but obviously worth it. This tablet is also famous for it’s battery life for over 9 hours, but also having the keyboard dock makes the experience better.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

With a quad-core CPU and 1,5GB RAM, there is also a product for all Samsung fans – the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 that comes in a price around 150-200 euros. Nothing except the low price makes this tablet more special when compared with the one mentioned above, but it is still Samsung and has TouchWiz, which for some people may be advantage (or disadvantage).

I decided to make a small collection of some really innovative and beautiful hybrid devices, which maybe most of us have never seen, but still they could be really useful to a lot of people.

The Acer Aspire R7

Acer Aspire R7Though maybe a bit strange, the Acer Aspire R7 introduces a new way of using the hybrid tablets and ultrabooks. With some really good technical specifications and a beautiful design, this hybrid is maybe worth more than it seems to be. Why? With extras like an HDMI port, card read, super fast Intel Core i5/i7 CPU and SSD, this device is obviously worth it!

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro

Lenovo Yoga 3 ProDo you think I would miss a hybrid ultrabook, that is even thinner than the new MacBook? Of course, no! This device is obviously worth it and in this review about the Yoga 3 Pro, Tony is explaining us why this device is really awesome. I personally think that this device is one of the best for its kind and comparable to devices like the Surface Pro tablets, but still is in a much different category.

Toshiba U920T

Toshiba U920TThough maybe not one of the most successful players in this market, I must admit that Toshiba has brought some innovation here. I really like it when people bring new stuff on the market and do not repeat their technology, because wanting more money for the same thing but with more marketing, does not make any sense, I just hate it. Toshiba has deserved it’s place here and I would like to say that the technical specifications of this hybrid ultrabook are not bad at all.

 

Dell XPS Duo

Dell XPS DuoA regular laptop with the size and possibilities of a tablet, this is the Dell XPS Duo. The design is handsome and in some cases really useful, the size of a 12″ puts it in the category of big tablets, rather than the small ultrabooks, but still the technical specifications of this device can make it compete with some other ultrabooks as well. The only disadvantage here is the weight, well that’s understandable, making new stuff, we cannot have everything we want.

Samsung has release a lot of tablets and now opens a new Galaxy Tab S-line. This is the thinnest and lightest tablet that Samsung has ever produced. Let’s take a closer look.

Design

The Galaxy Tab S features a 10.5 inch display. On the back we see a plastic rubberized back, which is identical to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Another feature which you can only see in this tablet is the gold trim, no matter of the color you get gold will be the trim around the bezel and the fingerprint home button. The build quality is the same that Samsung uses in all other devices – plastic ! This tablet creeks in the hand and feels much less substantial in the hand compared to tablets like the Nexus 10 and the Apple iPad Air.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Review

Specifications

According to specs, they do have a lot to say. You’ll find a 1.9 GHz octa-core configuration, on the wi-fi models only you’ll find 1.3 GHz quad-core chip, packed with 3 GB of RAM, the Adreno 330 GPU. It has a decent 8 MP and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera.

Galaxy Tab S

Software

It runs Android KitKat which is fantastic but it runs TouchWiz which at points concerns over 1 GB of RAM. I think that is unnecessary.

Galaxy Tab S Software

Display

Samsung Galaxy Tab S features 10.5 inch display as I said. The display is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. This technology allows engineers to makes this tablet 6.6 mm thin and also allows them to pack this beautiful display, with 288 ppi. One huge benefit having this type of displays are the colors – blacks are truly black, whites are really white and bright, and all the reds and greens and blues look fine.

Galaxy Tab S Front

Battery life

To be honest the Galaxy Tab S has a decent battery life just like the iPad Air. It has about 6 to 8 hours on screen time of about 80 % brightness.

Galaxy Tab S Battery Life

Conclusion

So although it’s good but has some serious software limitations and I wish this thing runs stock Android because it will be lighting fast with this specs. So for me if you want an Android tablet, buy the Nexus 10.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Design

BUY Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Along with the iPad Air 2 it was released the iPad Mini 3. There is not really much to say about the iPad Mini 3 if you read our iPad Air 2 review you already know everything about the iPad Mini 3 and what can do. The iPad Mini 3 is essentially the same thing but simply smaller. And it has aonly 2 changes according to the previous generation iPad Mini 2.

Design

The iPad Mini 3 is 7.5 mm thin and weights 331 g. (341 g. for the 3G/LTE version). The size of the screen is 7.9 inches Retina Display with a resolution of 1536 x 2048. Here is the first change – you get the touch ID sensor. It comes in Space Gray, Silver, Gold – and here is the second change. The iPad Mini 2 comes in Space Gray and Silver, and now you can get the Gold version.

iPad Mini 3 Design

Hardware

The new Mini 3 features Apple A7 Dual-core CPU, 1 GB of RAM and PowerVR G6430 quad-core graphics. It comes in 16, 64, 128 GB of storage. The camera is 5 MP, shoots photos in 2592×1944 resolution and videos in 1080p 30fps. The front-facing camera is 1.2 MP, shooting videos at 720p 30 fps. The battery is 6471 mAh and lasts you all day. The hardware specs are the same as the iPad Mini 2.

iPad Mini 3 Hardware

Software

It comes with iOS 8.1 upgradable to the latest version for now. The iOS runs really smooth and we haven’t met any glitches or lags in using for a period of time.

Conclusion

The iPad Mini 3 is not bad but Apple didn’t made a big upgrade according to the previous generation. I think it’s not worth it to spend nearly $100 more for a Gold iPad Mini with Touch ID. This is our review, this is our view so you decide if it’s worth it.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 – A Business Hybrid http://reviewtech.info/microsoft-surface-pro-3-a-business-hybrid/ http://reviewtech.info/microsoft-surface-pro-3-a-business-hybrid/#respond Sun, 22 Mar 2015 06:48:19 +0000 http://reviewtech.info/?p=267 Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the #1 business tablet released. Learn how this tablet could really enhance your daily business productivity

The post Microsoft Surface Pro 3 – A Business Hybrid appeared first on Review Tech.

]]>
The Microsoft Surface tablets are the most successful tablet devices from Microsoft. The Pro version has always been better than the normal Windows RT one. I would like to take a look at the awesome hybrid Microsoft Surface Pro 3, one of the most productive tablets having technical specifications of a laptop, but looking like a pure business tablet.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 TabletMicrosoft is improving the Pro version and with this latest models, the tablet is really thinner and with a bigger display. Though the device is created as a laptop replacement, in my personal opinion it is just a tablet with increased performance and productivity. Running desktop software like Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and others is what makes this tablet special for me, I cannot do this on any android device, that’s why the Surface Pro 3 takes the first place when it comes to a business tablet. Let’s have a look at the technical specifications of the tablet, they are literally comparable to the one of a modern laptop.

CPU

A dual-core Intel i5 4th generation is what makes this tablet to think so fast. With up to 2.9Ghz turbo boost, the CPU is capable of running all applications you would use on a tablet. In combination with the 8GB LPDDR3 RAM, running multiple application should not be a problem for the Microsoft tablet.

Display

The display of the Microsoft Pro 3 is a really impressive one, a 12” screen with the resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. I must admit that the display is obviously better than the most tablet displays out there, though 1440p is a new tendency in all android devices.

Storage

The Surface Pro 3 comes with up 256GB SSD, which is a feature we even barely see in some notebooks. Microsoft wanted to be sure there will be a fast storage for a better performance, so they put an SSD inside. I also think that the 256GB are more than enough for every powerful tablet user out there. In case you want to increase this store, the tablet has a USB 3.0 port and even a micro SDXC card reader (up to 128GB).

Graphics

Unfortunately there is no nVidia GeForce GPU inside, maybe because the tablet is really thin and lightweight. The Microsoft Pro 3 has the Intel HD 4400 as a GPU installed, which is of course not that bad, it is actually perfect for a tablet, being able to even play light Windows 8 3D games.

Extras

I already mentioned the card reader and the usb port, the tablet has also two cameras, 5MP each being able to capture 1080p video (just perfect for Skype). Bluetooth 4.0 is also installed on this device.

The tablet has also a really lightweight keyboard, which I find really beautiful, but not that comfortable to write with, but still it is a big advantage for this device, as most of the tablet have actually no keyboard.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

Conclusion

The Surface Pro 3 is an undisputed winner for the business class tablets. With the right software like Microsoft Office and some Adobe tools, you could easily increase your productivity by using this hybrid tablet. The price of this device is varying, depends on the internal memory you need. There are also versions with Intel i7 installed, but this is for people who have money and want the most of it. In Europe you could buy the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 for a less than 900 eur and in USA for a price around $1,000.

I do recommend this device for people who need a device to increase their productivity and business, but I would not recommend it for people who want to play games and do various of stuff with their tablet. If you have chosen the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, you need to know that this is a tablet from the business class, not for the Apple or Android fanboys who are using their devices for multimedia and games.

The iPad Air 2 is the thinnest tablet Apple has ever made. There’s an incredibly crowded tablet market and I think the iPad Air 2 is the best one out there.

Design

The iPad Air 2 is thinner and lighter than the first iPad Air 0.43 grams and 6.1 mm thin, thinner than any other tablet out there. It is completely made of metal and has rounded side. It kind of feels that the display is attached to almost nothing at this point. The fact that is also lighter means it’s just as easy as any other tablet to hold in the hand and it’s much easier to hold with one hand and type and poke with the other hand. The side bezels are thinned out a little but there’s still plenty of room to rest your thumb so. The disadvantage with the new thinner and lighter iPad is that the mute switch that has been on the side of every single iPad and iPhone since the beginning is now gone. It’s been replaced with their software toggle it in the quick settings of iOS 8. I don’t think the tablet is too thin for this I think is a decide decision by Apple.

Battery

The other downside of going so thin and light is this space and size are a little bit smaller and that means you have a smaller battery. It’s still a great battery life for a tablet. I didn’t even notice any difference in the battery life. The tablet lasts you all day. But it has this 15% smaller battery. You should be mad at Apple for sacrificing battery just to make it thinner !

Display

One of the biggest and best improvements on the iPad Air 2. It’s still a Retina display and it still has the same 4:3 aspect ratio and 2048 by 1536 resolution, great colors and color reproduction, brightness levels and etc. Now this display is fully-laminated display which actually ironically means less air between the glass and the panel. So this and the new anti-reflecting coating is supposed to give the new screen a much more glare free look  at the images closer to the surface of the glass and actually thought it pretty much seem I was touching the pixels, like the image was floating right on top of the iPad as I touched. The Retina display looks great

Performance

The Air 2 Is rocking Apple’s new A8 X chip, powered by the motion M8 chip, which is their best mobile chip yet, and without getting too technical it’s essentially a triple core, three core processor and you also now finally for the first time in Apple tablet history get 2 GB of RAM. The A8X chip – it’s incredible, it’s super powerful, it’s really thermally efficient this tablet basically never heats up on me and it powers iOS 8 as smoothly as you’d expect. They upgraded the camera to an even better 8 MP, essentially the exact same optics as the iPhone 5S. You also get Touch ID now, the fingerprint sensor over the home button which you use it to unlock your tablet. The speaker on the iPad which is very very very loud so it’s actually so loud that it vibrates the entire tablet. It’s not the best quality in the world but the loudness is impressive.

Conclusion

So overall you got to admit that the iPad Air 2 is pretty sweet. I made this review so you can think if it’s worth upgrading from Air to Air 2. I personally would say, for some people it’s good, but again it’s up to you.
