I will focus on different areas (mainly software related) not covered in the previous 2 reviews after using it as my work phone for almost a week.
I will not be touching on the OS aspect as it is still based on Symbian^3 which is exactly the same as Nokia N8. This short review is mostly a comparison with Nokia N8.
Received the Mobile Phone Tripod Holder from Mobile Fun last month for review. The mobile phone tripod holder is useful when you want to take self-shot photos (there are timers in some phones) or even videos using your mobile phone.
When I first opened the package, I thought the quality of the tripod might be terrible and it is flimsy. Despite most of the parts being made in plastic, it is still pretty firm.
SingTel send me the Motorola BackFlip for a review last month but because of my busy schedule I can only review it till recently. I apologize for the delay. I will be only covering the physical aspect of the phone because in terms of OS and software it is very similar to the Motorola Dext which I reviewed 5 months ago.
If you notice the battery cover comes separately in the package instead of being pre-fixed to the back of the phone.
The Desk Genie Non-Slip Charging Desk Stand as the name suggest, is a non-slip charging stand that holds your mobile phone while it charges. In addition to that, it acts as a 8-in-1 memory card reader as well as a 2 port USB hub.
When I first receive the LG Monitor W2486L with the box, the first impression it give me was it was very slim and light. The whole package including the box weights 6.6kg. When I unboxed the package and weight the monitor with its base, it weights only 4.6kg. I think my Dell 2408WFP weights twice of that and look at the size of the box compared to the W2486L’s box.
The attributes of it being slim and light is greatly due to the LED Technology that lights up the screen which gives it an excellent 2,000,000:1 Dynamic Digital Fine Contrast Ratio. Speaking of the screen display, the auto brightness control will automatic adjusting your screen brightness to match your surrounding room’s lightings.
Received my Apple iPhone 3GS / 3G USB Desktop Sync & Charge Cradle from MobileFun yesterday. It is a good alternative to the Apple iPhone 3G Dock (£22) and Apple Universal Dock (£36) because it cost only £9.99 and it works exactly the same.
It comes with the cradle, the MiniUSB to USB cable and the charger head.
Motorola DEXT with MOTOBLUR
The Motorola DEXT is the “social” phone from Motorola and another SingTel exclusive phone, similar to what INQ is doing with it’s Mini 3G and Chat 3G. Motorola took a new approach and created its own service called MOTOBLUR. Just imagine Apple’s MobileMe and MOTOBLUR is the Motorola’s version. Similar to MobileMe where it can track your phone and remotely wipes its data, you can do that using MOTOBLUR as well. You can do so by logging into MyMOTOBLUR and from there you can “Locate Your Phone”, “Delete Data” and even perform an OTA “Import Contacts” to your Motorola DEXT from a CSV file. Pretty impressive and best of all, this service is 100% FREE. I tried the “Locate Your Phone” feature and it works perfectly, I am pretty amazed!
Even though is my first time reviewing/playing with an Android mobile phone, I will not be touching any of the default Android stuff aka Google stuff. I shall be focusing on the enhancement Motorola did with Android. I would like to apologize first if some of the stuff I mention are part of Android instead of an enhancement by Motorola.
Shortly after receiving my Razer Abyssus, I received another Razer mouse, this time it is called the Razer Imperator. It was announced 16 days after the Razer Abyssus was announced, on the 26th November 2009. The Razer Imperator recommended retail price (RRP) is S$139.
The Razer Abyssus was announced two months ago on the 10th November 2009 and it is available in Singapore market since last December. The Razer Abyssus recommended retail price (RRP) is S$79.00.
