HTC 10 Cases! [Spigen]

Spigen sent us a bunch of their latest cases for the HTC 10, here’s our quick round-up overview.

(Click on photos below to enlarge!)

Spigen Crystal Shell Case for HTC 10 – My favorite of them all, this is a single layer case that has a rock-hard shell with extra protection in the corners.  This case is not too thick, transparent to show off the natural colors of your HTC 10, and also protects your phone very well with its hardened TPU.

HTC 10 Unboxing & Close-Up Photos!

We have finally unboxed HTC’s latest flagship Android smartphone, the HTC 10.  One of the biggest changes/updates from previous HTC flagships is that the HTC 10 comes with a 1440P screen, USB Type C w/ Quick Charge 3.0 support, and OIS for both front/back cameras.

This is probably the most exciting HTC smartphone we have yet seen so far.  We should have a full review of this bad boy but in the meanwhile, please enjoy our unboxing video and close-up photos below:

Galaxy S7 Edge EXTREME Benchmark Test with ICE!

In this EXTREME benchmark test, we put the Galaxy S7 Edge under water with LOTS of ICE to lower its CPU temperature and maximize performance.

Please DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

What we found was very interesting, the international S7 Edge with Exynos 8890 didn’t see as much improvement with Antutu scores of 134,327 while the U.S. S7 Edge with Qualcomm 820 scored 138,520 on Antutu.

LG G5 vs. Galaxy S7 vs. S7 Edge EXTREME Benchmark Test!

In this EXTREME benchmark test, we take up the Samsung Galaxy S7(Exynos) vs. LG G5 vs. S7 Edge(Qualcomm) running the Antutu benchmark multiple times to see which one can outperform in extreme stress/heat to the phone.

What we found was very interesting.  While the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge outperformed the LG G5 in the first few benchmark tests with lower temperatures, the LG G5 came back and ran the benchmarks more stable and solid with lower temps nearing the end of the test.

Galaxy S7 Edge vs. LG G5 Camera Comparison! [Part 1 – Photos]

In this camera comparison, we take up the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge against the LG G5 comparing photos in various different situations including low-light and macro.

Through this test, I learned that the Galaxy S7 Edge fairs a bit better in low-light situations and also picking up more details in shadows.  But what I also learned is that LG G5 is no slouch either, doing fairly well in keeping up with the S7 Edge in most situations.  In fact, the LG G5 also offers a second wide-angle camera, which can come in handy for giving you some excellent landscape photos.
