OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

Posted by wicked April - 1 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn’t a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores “next month”.

In a pleasantly surprising move, the company has delivered on its promises in a very timely fashion. The OnePlus Dr-1 is indeed available for purchase.

Part of its April Fool’s prank, OnePlus put together an elaborate show with quite some preparation. The drone is real, albeit available in limited quantities as a special edition product.


The DR-1 is a tiny quadcopter with a wingspan of just 70mm. In fact, the controller is actually in size comparison to the drone, which is roughly half the size of the OnePlus One.text-comparison


Additional product details are listed below:

Weight 12.5g ± 2.5g
Frame Size 70mm x 28mm (Blade diameter 30mm)
Main Motor Type ø6X12 (4pcs)
Battery 3.7V 100mAh Li-Po
Charge Time ~20 minutes
Flight Time 5-8 minutes
In the Box DR-1 Drone, USB cable, additional blades (4x), user manual, controller


Stock is available in limited quantities, with shipping expected within 3-15 days. There is also a 1-year warranty to cover all manufacturer defects, but does not include accidental or user damage, so it is advisable to handle this small gadget toy with care.


The OnePlus DR-1 is available for purchase for $19.99 from here.


As with all things OnePlus, expectations would be sky-high on this product. We hope it does indeed rise up to them.

Record both ends of your conversation with Bluewire device

Posted by wicked April - 1 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

There are times when you would legitimately need to record your conversations, whether it’s for business purposes or to transcribe an over-the-phone interview. There are very few devices that have this capability, and a Bluetooth headset that is on Kickstarter wants to be your device of choice. Bluewire is a smartphone and VOIP call recorder that can be compatible with any standard Bluetooth device and can easily store and transfer the recorded files onto your smartphone.

Bluewire allows you to record up to 33 feet from your phone, just in case you need to take your call on your Bluetooth device and away from your smartphone. All of the calls you make will be automatically recorded on the device and you’ll easily access it through the Bluewire App which you can download from the Google Play Store. After your conversation, all you need to do is tap the device to your paired smartphone and that last call will then be saved on to your mobile device, and just to make sure nothing is lost, it will also be sent to your email inbox.

If you already have a Bluetooth device you’re used to, you can still use Bluewire because it is compatible with most of those Bluetooth-enabled headsets. It uses the Qi standard for wireless charging and can also be used as a mini flashlight.

It also comes with a ring to attach to your keyring. This means you can also use it to locate your missing keys with the Find Bluewire button on the app. And if it’s the smartphone that you can’t locate, you just have to shake your Bluewire and then your phone will ring. Let’s just hope you didn’t put it on silent mode or else you obviously won’t be able to hear it (unless the vibrate mode is loud enough for you to feel/hear it).

The project has already reached its target goal of $10,000. There are still 68 hours to go so if you want to be one of the first to own Bluewire, you can pledge as low as $149 to be able to get this device onto your smartphone and start recording your conversations, legitimately of course.

FrontBack Camera ideal for taking photos from both sides

Posted by wicked April - 1 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

There are thousands of camera and photography apps available for Android devices but I don’t know any that works for both the back camera and front camera. The FrontBack camera works like a twin camera app, taking pictures of two views and placing them in one photo. This is perfect for those who like to take selfies and photos of friends and family all the time.

Your FrontBack photos can be used to tell a story. Stitch two different photos together quickly and more conveniently with this app. You can also share them via your favorite social network from Facebook to Whatsapp, email, or Twitter. Utilize the two phone cameras, apply the appropriate filter to the photo (blur, sepia, vintage, etc.), adjust brightness, crop photos, and add black and white.

Could this be the best camera app ever? Probably if you are into taking selfies endlessly and want others to think that you are also taking their photos.

Don’t think this just like any other camera app. With the FrontBack app, you can make the most of your smartphone’s two cameras at the same time. With front-facing cameras being improved and megapixels getting higher every time in different models, you can finally take your ultimate selfie.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 giveaway ends this Wednesday [DEALS]

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

While a lot of attention now has been lavished on Samsung‘s twin smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, one must not forget that that Korean manufacturer also creates tablets, though not as numerous as smartphones.

And now you can get one for free if Lady Luck smiles on you on this Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Giveaway.

Huawei P8 details semi-confirmed as specs and pics come to TENAA

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

You know what they say about TENAA once you come out in the Chinese certification website, all the details included are almost good as confirmed. This will probably be the case with Huawei’s new flagship, the P8 as the official unveiling is just a few days away. But the pictures and specs leaked from the website, more or less confirms what has been bandied about and we can expect that the “final product” will more or less have these features and specifications.

While Huawei has not officially announced that the new flagship is going to be the P8, but we can probably trust the details that have been revealed in the TENAA site. There will be six different versions, with three of them carrier-specific. The images show a device that will be a mixture of plastic and metal (as rumored earlier) and that it will have super thin bezels. The earlier reports that it will be just 6mm thick may be probable based on the pictures, but there is no indication as to its exact thinness. The metal part would be the frame and the back finish, and some areas seem to be made of plastic, like the strip around the camera.


Interestingly enough, the left side of the device is completely clean, since all the buttons (power, volume, microSD slot, SIM card are all located in the right side. Regarding the inside, it will reportedly run on Hisilicon Kirin range, the 64-bit octa-core Kirin 930 and it will have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Display is expected to be at full HD with 10802p resolution. Another rumor that has been floating around is that it will come with dual SIM, which the TENAA site shows it will.

The P8 will be officially announced and unveiled during Huawei’s big event on April 15. Of course we’ll be updating you more about the smartphone as the date comes closer and even during the date itself, including if it will really be priced at around $480.

MediaTek launches Helio, new SoC brand for premium phones

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

MediaTek impressed the market earlier this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona by launching the MT6753 chipset with ‘WorldMode’ LTE. We also heard a rumor that the company is in talks with Samsung. We have no idea about what the two could be working on but this week, MediaTek proudly introduced its newest SoC brand–the Helio.

The Helio X10 will be used for higher and premium range smartphones. It’s officially known as the branded MT6795 but the name SoC Helio X10 is much easier to remember. No need to memorize the MTxxxx reference because MediaTek is simply calling the product Helio X (any number).

This particular product promises excellent and reliable multimedia performance all the time. In other words, it offers extreme performance. The name Helios itself even gives us an idea that it’s gonna be powerful just like the Greek Sun god Helios.

The Helio X10 runs on a 2.2GHz 64-bit LTE octa-core chip. It can also bring 120Hz technology into mobile. The new SoC chip brings a smarter image enhancement technology courtesy of the SmartScreen feature. This will also make photos and the phone display brighter even under the sunlight. Chip can also support H.265 encode up to 4K2K 30fps, Super Slow Motion technology, and Instant focus.

Power Clean helps free up memory and storage on your Android device

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

If your Android smartphone or tablet is not that big when it comes to memory or internal storage, chances are you always run out on either or even both. The cleaner apps that you install sometimes only adds to the problem. A new Android app called Power Clean claims that it will only cost you 1 or 2 megabytes but will help free up memory and storage and improve your smartphone or tablet’s performance all in all.

You cannot manually sift through all the files and programs on your phone, but the app will do it for you and clean up your junk files, cache, residual files, download folder, and other things that help bring down your memory. You can also choose to clean your browser history and clipboard content (not because you’re hiding something but for memory purposes) and also to remove malicious apps that you may have unwittingly installed. It will also clean the redundant background tasks that may have been slowing your device down.

Power Clean can also serve as an app manager. You can quickly batch uninstall apps that you haven’t been using and also remove the pre-installed and system apps that came with your device but you’re not really using. If you’re really running out of space, it will help you move installed apps from the internal storage to an SD card, which should solve part of your problem. The app will also tell you the reasons why your phone is overheating, which apps are eating up your battery, and other information you need to know about your device.

Power Clean’s developer says that it is a 100% Green cleaner and that there are no annoying ads to interrupt you. You can download it for free from the Google Play Store.


Nextbook Ares 11: A 2-in-1 tablet/netbook for under $200

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

If we asked you what was the 5th largest tablet supplier in the US, would any of you answer E FUN? Probably not, but apparently it is. And now they’re making their foray into the hybrid market with their first Android 2-in-1 laptop tablet, the Nextbook Ares 11. While it may not be the high-powered gadget that you’ve always dreamed of, at least it strives to bring you value for money with its features and functions.

The Nextbook Ares 11 is somewhere in between: it’s bigger than a tablet, but smaller than a laptop, with its 11.6-inch tablet with a detachable keyboard. It runs on a Quad-Core Intel® AtomTM Z3735F Processor (X86, 1.8GHz) and it already comes with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop (which is better than a lot of more high-end devices that have yet to receive that update). The detachable keyboard is backlit and comes with two standard USB ports while the touch screen is 1366 x 768 IPS capacitive.

It has just 1GB memory and 64GB internal storage, with the microSD slot capable of supporting up to another 64GB. So this is not something that you can use to install heavy programs or lots of games and multi-media. But it would be perfect for students looking for a simple machine to use for school or casual users that just need word processing or web surfing basic features. You can also watch movies or TV shows through streaming services like VUDU or Flixster, or reading ebooks (the Nook app is preloaded already).

Of course the best part about is that it is just $197 (with some high-end smartphones costing higher than that). You will be able to buy the Nextbook Ares 11 at Walmart stores and online at



Water test shows Galaxy S6 edge is water-resistant, not waterproof

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

After seeing that brutal harsh test yesterday, we’re pretty convinced that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is really tough. Another test even showed us that it’s faster than the iPhone 6.  The smartphone is not mainly a rugged phone because the South Korean giant has the Galaxy S6 Active coming soon all rugged and waterproof. Unlike the Galaxy S5 model, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are not officially waterproof/water-resistant but this water test proves otherwise, sort of.

A certain Youtuber named Keaton aka TechSmartt recently did a water test for the S6 edge. He knew that the smartphone didn’t have any IP certification but he went ahead to place it underwater. He first thought that phone would die in the first minute but it held up–not even any air bubbles. All things good until the 22nd minute when the phone suddenly died. We’re not sure if battery was already low but the tester tried charging the phone after getting all the water out and drying it off.

Some water seeped inside but phone is still working. While charging, the Galaxy S6 edge has been turning on and off for some time and has been acting up. Water definitely hit that other parts. The front camera has water inside so you can’t take clear photos now.

Phone is screwed. It took Keaton some time to turn the unit on. Battery window showed up and phone was making a lot of noises. Obviously, a lot of components have been affected. You can still use other features but phone has been “spazzing out” according to Keaton.

TechSmartt’s recommendation? Don’t put the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge under water that long. It’s okay to drop the phone and splash some water “accidentally” because it’s a bit water-resistant but definitely not waterproof.
