Huawei Honor 7i renamed as ShotX in Europe, up for pre-order in Germany

Huawei ShotX d

We're thankful to Huawei for all the "Honor" its been giving the mobile industry but sometimes, and just like any other OEMs today, the almost similar names can be a lot confusing. If Samsung has the Galaxy line, Huawei is known for the Honor lineup. Well sure, Huawei also has the Ascend series but the Honor sells more for being an affordable series.

A few months ago, we mentioned the Huawei Honor 7 would be coming to Europe very soon. It actually turned out to be the Honor 7i complete with a flip out camera module. The smartphone is indeed coming to Europe but under a different name. Phone will now be called as the Huawei ShotX.

No formal announcement has been made by the Chinese tech company yet but some German retailers are already taking orders for the new model. To review, the phone comes equipped with a 5.2-inch display screen, 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution, Snapdragon 616 SoC, octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, Adreno 405 GPU, 16GB built-in storage, microSD cart slot for expansion, 2GB RAM, and a 3100mAh battery.

The Huawei ShotX also boasts of 4G/LTE connectivity and a fingerprint scanner. These two are rapidly becoming standard features in smartphones so expect them on the new Huawei phone. Out of the box, the phone will run Huawei's EMUI 3.1 and Android 5.1.1 already. Those who live in Germany can choose from among these three color variants: Polar White, Isle Blue, and Coastal Gold.

Huawei ShotX is already up for pre-order. Price tag reads $397 (349 euros) which makes it a mid to upper class range smartphone. Shipping will start in about a couple of weeks.

The Week in Mac Apps: Annotate everything with Ink2Go

Time’s running out on those iPhone 6s introductory offers

When they first came out last month, the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus were discounted by most major carriers in a price war to lure in new customers. But that price war seems to be coming to an end.

Over the weekend, T-Mobile ended its introductory offer that allowed customers to get a new iPhone for about $125 cheaper. Though T-Mobile’s Jump on Demand 18-month installment plan, leasing a 16GB iPhone 6s was $20 a month, while the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus went for $24 a month, without either a down payment or a smartphone trade-in. But that offer has now gone bye-bye.

IDG Contributor Network: Review: 2016 Ford Escape with Sync 3 a major leap forward

I always take note of new advancements with car companies. In some ways, the strict safety standards and semi-annual refresh schedule for new cars makes it difficult to add something totally new. 

Recently, I was able to test the new 2016 Ford Escape with Sync 3, a much improved touchscreen, voice control, and driver interaction system. It’s a big leap forward and a good reason to consider this small, compact SUV that’s a blast to drive.

One of the biggest changes has to do with the responsive, capacitive touchscreen. I tend to overtest in cars, and I put this one through the ringer. I swiped through my contacts list (synced to my iPhone 6 over USB) and the screen never paused or jerked. I drove to an urban area and tried out the nav screen, which now supports pinch to zoom. I flicked around trying to find a specific intersection and found my destination easily enough. In many ways, this one advancement -- making the screen more responsive -- is a smart safety feature. When the screen doesn't quite work, it becomes distracting and even dangerous. All of the climate controls, radio settings, and even the options for configuring the text messaging feature worked flawlessly. (The car can read your incoming texts, which is another way to minimize distractions).

Android Wear-powered ELE Watch sighted on Chinese online store

ele watch 3

Elephone is venturing into the smartwatch arena. Less than a month ago, some images of the ELE Watch were leaked. Not much information were presented to us but the wearable looks stylish and could very well rival the round smartwatches recently introduced in the market.

No official launch or announcement has been made yet but a product page was recently published by GearBest. The Chinese online retailer has listed a new smartwatch with an 'Arrival Notice' note. It's one attention-grabber because of the $115 price tag which is the lowest we know so far among the round wearables we've featured. We all know how smartwatches can be pricey today so a model that affordable has a potential to become a bestseller.

A list of specs was even provided on the page. There’s a mention of ELEPHONE as the brand. Specs include a built-in MTK2601 chip from Mediatek, 4GB built-in storage, 512MB RAM, 1.5-inch TFT screen with 320 x 320 pixel resolution, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and a 400 mAh battery. Case and watch band are made of metal.

Smartwatch is compatible with Android Wear OS. Just like most watches today, the ELE Watch is dust- and waterproof as indicated by its IP67 rating. Wearable device can last up to 80 hours on a single charge which is about up to three full days.

The ELE Watch also allows Bluetooth calling so you can accept incoming calls right from your wrist. It features a heart rate monitor and remote control for music playback. So far, it looks like and functions like any other smartwatch we’ve seen and tried. The metal band can be swapped with other wrist band materials but we don’t know the exact band size yet.

The 512MB RAM and 4GB built-in storage is standard in current smartwatches. Languages available include English, German, Thai, Malay, Italian, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Arabic, Spanish, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Portuguese, and Turkish.

The ELE Watch may not have the more advanced specs and features but for its price, this Android watch is good enough for those who just want the basic smartwatch functions like notifications, Bluetooth calling, and heart rate tracking. This reminds us of the newest Asus ZenWatch that is priced at $150—another smartwatch that can become a bestseller and ready to rival the more expensive models like Moto 360, LG Watch Urbane, and Huawei Watch.

We’ll wait for ELEPHONE to make the official announcement. We have our eyes on this one.

Apple boosts iMac screen resolution, lowers price of top-end 27-in. machine by 8%

Apple today refreshed its iMac desktop family, adding a higher-resolution display option to its entry-level 21.5-in. all-in-one and making the so-called "Retina 5K" screens standard on all its larger 27-in. models.

The last time Apple modified the screens of its iMac line was a year ago when it introduced the Retina 5K iMac, which then started at $2,499. In May 2015, Apple debuted a lower-priced Retina 5K iMac at $1,999.

Today, Apple debuted a 21.5-in. iMac with a Retina display of 4096-x-2304-pixel resolution, priced at $1,499. The model replaced the same-priced desktop that featured 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Sony releases AOSP Marshmallow binaries for open devices, adds Xperia Z5


If you’ve been following us for a while now – or if you own an unlocked Sony Xperia device – you will know that Sony approaches the issue of AOSP-based (Android Open Source Project) custom ROMs on their devices differently. Where others would be in lock-down mode, Sony gives users the ability (and responsibility) to unlock their bootloaders and flash AOSP ROMs on their devices. You will be happy to know that Sony has made available the Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based AOSP binaries for almost all Xperia devices, including the brand spanking new Xperia Z5.

The Sony Xperia Z5 is very much unlike its more recent predecessor – the Xperia Z3+/Z4 – which was hounded by overheating issues. This new flagship is suave and brings Sony back into the conversation for most beautiful Android flagship phone around. Sony is now opening the smartphone up to the tweakers and after-market dudes – if you have an Xperia Z5 whose bootloader can be unlocked, then you can start flashing Marshmallow AOSP into the phone.


What is more surprising is that almost all Xperia devices are getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow AOSP binaries. As far as we can tell, the list includes the Xperia T3, the T2 Ultra, Xperia M2, Xperia E3, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, the Z Ultra, the Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2, the Z2 Tablet, the Xperia Z2 Compact, the Xperia Z3, the Z3 Tablet, the Xperia Z3 Compact, the Xperia Z4, the Xperia Z3+, the Xperia Z4 Tablet, and finally, the Xperia Z5 Compact and the aforementioned Xperia Z5.


This is a testament to the robustness of the hardware of Xperia devices, that smartphones and tablets almost 4 or 5 generations down will still be able to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Granted that they might not be all as snappy and smooth, but they will run the software. That is just amazing. Check out the source link for the download locations for these binaries.

Facebook’s new video features for iOS edge into YouTube’s territory

Facebook has been gunning for YouTube’s share of video views for some time now, but it didn’t seem clear how the social network would pull that off. Sure, people post videos that show up in your News Feed, but YouTube is designed to easily find the videos that people post. Facebook is not. Until now.

The network said Tuesday that it is testing a dedicated tab in the Facebook app for iOS and on the web that would feature nothing but videos. This separate video feed would be home to videos that you save to watch later with a new save button that Facebook is also testing, as well as videos from your friends, pages you follow, and clips that Facebook suggests to you.

Return to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty with ‘Alf’s Escape’ for Xbox One

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is the full re-mastering of the critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, originally released on the PS1.

Abe's Oddysee was fairly notorious for its difficulty, and while New 'n' Tasty offered new settings to ease the challenge, it was still quite a hard slog.

The meatiest puzzles in New 'n' Tasty were found in its hidden areas, as they combined the game's mechanics in extreme and diabolical ways. If you imagine an entirely new level comprised of those more complex challenges, you'll have a good idea about what the Alf's Escape DLC represents.
