Chromecast Audio Unboxing & Review!

Google has revolutionized how many people stream videos and movies to TVs by selling over 20 million units of the original Chromecast, which cost less than $40.

Well, this year Google has announced a new product called “Chromecast Audio” that does pretty much the same thing but for audio.  You can use Chromecast Audio to make any of your speakers wireless using your home WiFi network.

New Chromecast 2nd Gen Unboxing! [2015]

Google has released Chromecast 2nd generation yesterday and I was able to receive it today.  The new Chromecast 2nd gen features a completely new look with Chrome logo on a circle shape with a short HDMI cable that’s also magnetic.

The biggest change with this year’s Chromecast is support for dual-band 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz with 802.11AC.  For those of you with a 5Ghz router with 802.11AC, now you will be able to stream many times faster.  There’s also new feature like “Fast Play” that will reduce loading times up to 80%.

Nexus 6P vs. iPhone 6S Plus!

Today, we will take a quick comparison between the Nexus 6P and Apple’s new iPhone 6S Plus.

Nexus 6P and iPhone 6S Plus both feature metal unibody design, I would say design is both great on its own right but the Nexus 6P is a bit lighter with a larger screen size.

Nexus 6P comes with a 5.7-inch 1440P AMOLED screen with 518 PPI while the iPhone 6S Plus comes with 5.5-inch 1080P IPS LCD screen with 401 PPI. The Nexus 6P kills iPhone 6S Plus in screen resolution and for viewing latest 4K videos on YouTube or playing back 4K videos, the Nexus 6P will come real handy as it can replay both YouTube and 4K videos in full 1440P. If you tend to watch a lot of videos, Nexus 6P is definitely the winner here.

Nexus 6P vs. Nexus 5X!

Can’t decide between the Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X?  We pretty know everything about the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X already so let’s go ahead and do a quick comparison of the two latest Google flagship smartphones.

First, the Nexus 6P ships with a 5.7-inch 1440P screen while the Nexus 5X comes with a 5.2-inch 1080P screen. The Nexus 6P is definitely a phablet, a large smartphone while the Nexus 5X is somewhat smaller, regular sized smartphone. Depending on your preferred size, you may want the Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X.

Nexus 6P vs. Moto X Pure!

Today, we will look at the specs and price of Nexus 6P versus the Moto X Pure!

First, both Nexus 6P and Moto X Pure have 1440P 2560×1440 resolution screens. The Nexus 6P will use AMOLED technology similar to the Note 5 while the Moto X Pure has an IPS TFT LCD screen. In terms of viewing angles, the AMOLED screens are much better and have brighter screens. Also, AMOLED screens are much more energy efficient so the Nexus 6P should have a much better screen. In real life usage, it’s probably not a huge deal but Nexus 6P wins in display category.

Nexus 6P First Thoughts!

The Nexus 6P presentation slides were leaked this morning and here’s my thoughts on the new device.

Nexus 6P will feature a 5.7-inch AMOLED 1440P (2560×1440 resolution) screen, which I think is a great idea as that puts it in the same class as the Note 5 and Moto X Pure (both which also have 1440P screen). 1440P has really become an industry standard for smartphones these days and especially on a larger phablet devices like the Nexus 6P, I think it’s absolutely essential.

Moto X Pure Review!

Moto X Pure is a new phablet device from Motorola with the same size class as the Galaxy Note 5.  It’s certainly not for those of you who want a small phone but for those of you who want to enjoy a large 5.7-inch screen for easier viewing and typing.  So bear that in mind before deciding to get the Moto X Pure (or the international version Moto X Style which is identical in hardware specs).

Moto X Pure 4K Cinematic Video Camera Test!

Here’s 4K cinematic video camera test with my new Moto X Pure (same as Moto X Style). It has no manual focus for video recording. The auto focus is not bad but fluctuates and gets confused, something that could have been eliminated with manual focus. But the video stability is EXCELLENT over phones with OIS as it does not have wavering effect like the Note 5, G4, OnePlus Two. If Motorola can add manual focus, this could be the best 4K video camera on the market.

How to Activate Moto X Pure on Sprint!

For those of you who haven’t heard, the latest Motorola Moto X Pure Android smartphone is an “all-carrier” phone that has GSM and CDMA radios to support all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks.  Not only that, the Moto X Pure also has 4G LTE bands for all carriers, meaning you will be able to use it on any U.S. carrier.
