Phone case for HTC Desire 650

Cell Phones & Accessories
Along with the HTC Desire that I have already reviewed, I had also ordered a phone case for it. Again, from Amazon. The delivery was right on time, same day with the phone, it fits perfectly, keeping the phone safe from any possible damage. It also has small compartments, for bank cards and money, which makes it useful also as a wallet. The material used imitates leather very well, and can keep the phone safe from water or rain. The case also has a hard material that keeps the phone safe from any ‘meetings’ with the floor. The case is flexible, so it can be set as a support for the phone and also a closing system based on a magnet. I chose the black color not only for being my favourite, but also because its a color that can endure dust, which is very common at work. I'm re

Around Easter time, I always spoil myself with some presents. This time I have chosen a new phone and my pick was the HTC Desire 650, ordered on Amazon.com. I'm very pleased with the balance between price and quality. The phone has 2 gb Ram memory, CPU Snapdragon processor, which allows the apps to be fast and easy to use, also the updates don't take too much space. Besides the technical specs, the phone has an elegant slim design, a large screen (5.5 inches), IPS LCD screen, 16 mil. color. The camera surprised me the most, 13MP, with auto focus, the photos are really high quality and very clear. The front camera has 5MP, also taking really nice shots. It uses Android 6.6.0 which can be upgraded, and the battery life is very satisfying, I've been testing it to find out how long it las

I bought this radio about a year ago, I needed it for my office desk (by the way, the color fits perfectly) and I can say I am quite excited about it so far. What convinced me to buy it: fair price, good reviews, its design (great retro look, simple and small, no frills, compact brand radio). The device is really awesome. Because I like always a background noise while working or cooking, this portable (it can be used with batteries as well) little thing comes in handy. So the two main criteria: Clear, stong reception (working even without a fully extended antenna) on almost all stations despite strong walls. Great sound. It can be changed by a simple Equlizer knob. Even though it’s a mono device, suprisingly it has a clear, solid sound which is well shielded against mobile rad

AGPTEK R2S Clip MP3 Player, Lightweight Lossless Sports Music Player with FM Shuffle (No Internal Memory, Support Up to 64GB), Blue I bought this FANTASTIC clip mp3 player 1 week ago on Amazon for only $17.99 The package was very small and it included: - AGPTEK R2S mp3 player; - 1 micro USB cable; - User manual. What was make me say WOW is the lightweight of this mp3 player, plus it has a wearable clip to could attach to my t-shirt/pants while I go in the morning to run... just I love it!! The quality sound is very high and it supports many audio format (mp3, wma, wav and many others). NOTE: the mp3 doesn't have an internal memory (so you will need to have a micro-SD card and it supports up to 64GB capability) and it doesn't come with earphones. Useless to say... after 1 hour t...

I bought my Echo Dot a few months ago and love it!  It is true to say that I have never tried the Google assist so cannot compare between the two but I have used the Google assist on my mobile and find the Echo Dot beats that hands down.  Set up is easy but as far as i am aware needs to be done via a mobile phone, tablet or kindle device.  Apart from general everyday tasks like weather forecast, news updates i use mine as a timer and for any quick general knowledge questions that you would usually have to pick up a mobile device and 'Google'. There is a vast array of tasks that can be activated via the app,  i have only tried a few and fail to keep using as you have to access the specific task via a certain voice commands which i find hard to remember for each specific task.  Recently,

This is my review of the Essential Phone that was released last fall.  I was looking for a new phone & did not want to pay the price of a normal flagship phone.  It is from a startup company that was founded by an old Google employee who worked on the Android system.  With it being a startup & this is their only product for far to date, besides the 360 camera that you can buy as an accessory to it, it makes it difficult to decide to buy this.  But given the hardware specifications that they had on this & the basically pure Android system & no added bloatware on it, it seemed like a good idea to give this a try. Here is some of the specs: -128GB of storage standard (which is much better than other phones in this price range as they come with either 32 or 64GB) -4GB of RAM

I have had this chromebook for a few months now. Chromebooks take a little getting used to as it is basically just a chrome browser & cannot do everything that a Windows laptop can do. So, basically, you have no chances for gaming or other high end things. I have owned a chromebook since around 2012 so know they are basically good for general web browsing. This particular chromebook is on the high end of the price spectrum & the hardware & screen do show the extra price compared to the basic chromebook. The Samsung Chromebook Pro is also a touchscreen & it folds 360 so you can basically use it like a tablet or also use tent mode so watching videos is very easy. It also comes with a stylus that conveniently stores in the side so you do not have to worry about misplacing it ...

A huge smartphone/phablet  Some months ago I was looking for a smartphone I could change for my old one, and my eyes went to this huge smartphone, and in September I decided to buy it.This smartphone is an Android dual sim (micro-sim and nano-sim) or in base. As you need, you can use a micro-sim  or an external memory (SD card). I recharge it every 2-3 days, depending on use, and the battery never become too hot, even with several hours of use.In the beginning I was scared about the fact that this brand is less known in Europe, but when it arrived, I discovered that this smartphone is not a swindle phone that come from China because:- It is built with quality materials in a full metal body - In the back there is fingerprint recognition for locking/unlocking the smartphone; - It

A little/big radio I bought it in November with a great discount and free shipping. Is it possible with a small radio to have many ways to listen to good music? Yes. This radio is just 14cm tall and 22cm wide, I found all the instruments that I would need to listen to any kind of music with any device. The unit is very compact and with an elegant design, I placed it in my living room without discussing it with my wife. The package contained: – The radio unit; – 1 power supply, to connect the radio to an electrical outlet; – 1 remote control (I really love to change radio stations with it while I stay laid down on the sofa); – Instruction manual in German and English, and well written.   The radio receives all worldwide radio stations through
