Oppo N3

Plenty of teasers have been posted online prior to today but nevertheless, the moment of truth has finally arrived. Just moments ago, Oppo has officially taken the drape off from its new smartphone, the Oppo N3 and as a direct successor to Oppo N1, the N3 also features a rotating camera.

There’s a new twist though: N3’s camera is actually motorized. In another words, you don’t have to use your hand to rotate it.

Google Nexus 6 by Motorola

Over the past few months, most major smartphone manufacturers have been busy announcing and launching their flagship smartphones. We saw many smartphones being announced earlier this year in MWC 2014, and back in IFA 2014, a whole lot more were released. Shortly after that, Apple held an event to take the curtains off its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and just last week, Google revealed the brand new Nexus 6 that features top-of-the-line specs. So how do all these devices stack up against each other? We have a spec sheet for that.

Review: Sony Xperia Z3 – The Best Android Smartphone of 2014?

by Pang Tun Yau · 2 weeks ago · 5 Comments · 6.7k views

sony-xperia-z3-10

When Sony introduced the original Xperia Z smartphone to the world, it also introduced a manufacturing and philosophical shift in its flagship smartphone strategy: to have a six-month cycle for its Z series of flagship Android smartphones. As a result, since the Xperia Z debuted at CES 2013, we’ve now got four Z-series smartphones in under two years: the Z, Z1, Z2 and now the Xperia Z3.

The company’s faced some pretty harsh criticism over this move, as many consumers feel that they are being short-changed for buying a premium smartphone that’s only going to be a flagship for six months. But since using both the Xperia Z2 and the Z3 almost back-to-back, I’m beginning to see some semblance of logic in Sony’s apparent madness.
