Share-wear: Quicksilver QS-1 HD headphones let a friend plug in

Posted by Tom March - 12 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

“Duuuude, you gotta hear this.” Surf-wear company Quicksilver has debuted its first set of headphones – the QS-1 HD, which features a “sharing plug” that allows another person to plug in and enjoy the same music or podcast.
The headphones also come with interchangeable cushions that let wearers switch from on-ear to over-ear use and they pack in low distortion 40mm drivers.

Plugging into their surf roots, the headband is made from TR-90 nylon and the detachable coil cable with aluminum plugs and 24K gold contacts is modeled on a surfboard rip cord.

Two versions have been released: the iOS-compatible QS-1 HD costs £125 (US$207) and the lower-spec, non-iOS basic model that omits the interchangeable ear cushions and swanky cable costs £95 (US$157).

Is a double output set of headphones totally bodacious or will wipeout as an unused gimmick? Join the discussion on the MP4Nation forum.

China tablet ifive mini3 has HD screen to rival Apple’s retina display

Posted by Tom February - 28 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

With its 2048 x 1536 resolution screen, the forthcoming Chinese ifive mini3 tablet is taking on the retina display of Apple.
The 7.9-inch tablet has a slim, fill metal body and a 5 megapixel camera (that probably won’t make the most of the display).
Not much more has been revealed on the hardware side but there are plenty of picture of the tablet, sometimes in a still life scene, sometimes being enjoyed by, ahem, regular users… pics after the jump.

4K on Android – overkill or must have?

Posted by wicked October - 21 - 2013 - Monday Comments Off

4k-image-340586

“4K” may seem like another bad marketing buzzword. But, unlike the meaningless jargon manufacturers like to throw around at press conferences, 4K content isn’t useless. It’s the high-definition successor to 1080p, and promises to change the way we experience TV, movies, and content by delivering an unprecedented level of detail.

There’s no doubt about it, 4K video is the future. But what is it, exactly, and do the current costs outweigh the benefits? Before we jump into the technology behind 4K, it’s important to understand why companies are so keen on the standard in the first place. Really, it all comes down to market dynamics.

Setting the Stage

The Canon EOS-1D, the world's first 4K capable SLR priced at $12,000

The Canon EOS-1D, the world’s first 4K capable SLR priced at $12,000

Oh, how times have changed. The introduction of the iPhone and Android turned the mobile industry on its head. Touch screens, components like accelerometers and proximity sensors have become ubiquitous. The improved usability of smartphones spurred their adaptation as companies vied for consumers’ attention. Innovation became a central tenet of many company philosophies, motivated by the pervasive belief that unique features would win over potential buyers.

That dedication to “different” is now stronger than ever, evident in features like the HTC’s heavily promoted UltraPixel camera and industry leading BoomSound speakers; the Samsung Galaxy S4’s myriad sensors and amalgamation of apps; and the Nokia Lumia 1020′s 42-megapixel rear camera, and now, the Galaxy Note 3’s ability to capture incredible 4K video. Though some aspects are more useful than others, few would argue any are completely undesirable.

Resolution continues to receive a lot of attention, and for good reason. Displays have been getting sharper each year, and high-definition output (via HDMI or Miracast) is always a highlight. But HD isn’t as fresh and exciting as it once was. It’s familiar, and not a novel selling point for $700+ smartphones. That’s why mobile device companies, always looking to invest in future trends, have started supporting a new format that holds a lot of promise.

A Primer

4K Gaming [click to enlarge]

4K Gaming [click to enlarge]

I distinctly remember my first HD TV. In so many ways, it was a bizarre thing. It seemed unusually lopsided, a peculiar orientation unsuited to television programming. And it was wispily, ungodly thin; the protrusion of electronics and inputs were, compared to my bulbous and tube-filled CRT set, utterly insignificant. In terms of picture, I didn’t know quite what to expect, and so powered it on with trepidation, fully prepared to return what I believed couldn’t possible best the quality of my tube TV from the ‘80/90’s. After a few minutes of watching, I practically threw my CRT out the window.

digital_video_resolutions_vcd_to_6k

That was 2003. Today, full HD 1080p is ubiquitous. Nearly 75 percent of Americans own HD televisions, and the most popular computer monitors are HD, according to a study by the Leichtman Research Group. From a technologist’s perspective, that’s an encouraging evolutionary trend. Manufacturers of displays see things differently, however. In their eyes, familiarity breeds yawns, which translates to lower sales. So, in an effort to once again awe the masses with technological magic, television and smartphones makers are rushing to mass-produce displays of unprecedented resolution. The most popular target by far is 4K, which has a minimum resolution of 3840 x 2160 . Nearly every major TV manufacturer has released a 4K model, and LG recently teased a 5.5-inch mobile display that, while not quite 4K, comes impressively close. (It has a resolution of 2560 x 1440.) Another display manufacturer out of Japan named Ortus Technology has demoed a 9.6 inch 4k display, too.

The 13.3" LCD display used in the Samsung ATIV S is an industry leading 3200x1800 pixels.

The 13.3″ LCD display used in the Samsung ATIV Q is an industry leading 3200×1800 pixels.

Why 4K? Well, 4K is effectively double 1080p, which certainly appeals to marketing sensibilities. More importantly, though, TV broadcasters are widely expected to adopt 4K as standard (some in Japan already have) and the popularity of 4K-capable digital cameras ensures plenty of movies will eventually become available for those with compatible displays.Quality Options YouTube 4k

While it delivers exceptional, highly manipulable content, there’s a dearth of affordable display hardware needed to actually see the difference 4K makes. In addition, it remains to be seen if mobile SoCs are powerful enough to produce quality, rather than blocky, 4K video. See the  sample video below for an idea of what I’m talking about. Also, remember to set the quality to original (requires powerful computer). If you’re running anything less than an Intel Core i3, it’s likely your computer will struggle.

The Benefits and Disadvantages of 4K

The main benefit of having the ability to capture 4K video is that you’ll be able to create stunningly detailed videos, that offer substantially better video quality. 4K video is video that is captured at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 vs 1080p’s 1920 x 1080. It’s over 8 million pixels with 4K vs 2 million with 1080p. Massive difference.

4K is a huge boon for those proficient in video editing, because of the nature of the resolution. It, if we recall, offers four times the resolution of 1080p. That means cropping without significant loss of resolution; conceivably, an edited video missing a significant amount of captured video could still qualify as HD.

Watch our Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review, here. 

The Note 3′s 13MP BSI camera, is capable of capturing true, honest to goodness 4K video. With a resolution of 3840×2160, it shoots  glorious 4K video at variable frame rate of 26-35fps. The video length is somewhat expectedly capped at five minutes, and produces a whopping 1.5GB file. The bit rate of the video itself is approximately 48-50mbps. And while each experience won’t necessitate employing the 4K detail the Note 3 is capable of, it’s nice to be able to grab such incredible video from your smartphone whenever an exciting moment beckons.

4K-HDTV-relative-sizes

4K content is insanely sharp. If you’ve ever witnessed it first hand on a 4K capable display , you’ll know that it’s an order of magnitude sharper than 1080p, so in a word: stunning. It also allows for zooming without apparent loss of quality. (Think Nokia’s 42-megapixel Lumia camera, but for video.) Of course, a PC (or powerful mobile device) and software powerful enough to handle 4K footage is a necessity, but given the downwardly trending price of virtually all consumer electronics, it’s likely an upgrade probably isn’t an outrageous proposition for those able to afford a 4K-capable Android phone.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 - the world's first 4K capable SoC

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 – the world’s first 4K capable SoC

Clarity should be the primary benefit of 4K – more pixels is good in theory – but comes at a price. Recording 4K videos will consume substantial battery life and the files themselves will be massive. Qualcomm, the first company to produce an SoC (the Snapdragon 800) capable of capturing 4K footage, hasn’t been forthcoming about the compression and bitrate used. It isn’t unreasonable to assume, though, that the quality won’t be on par with what cameras like the RED Epic can produce. Just like smartphones won’t replace DSLRs for video any time soon, don’t expect to see Hollywood blockbusters filmed on the Note 3. Further research shows however, that the 4K footage grabbed by the Galaxy Note 3 is around 50mbps resulting in significantly larger file sizes than the 1080p video most smartphones are capable of capturing, today.

The Bottom Line

1080p vs 4K

There’s no doubt that 4K is the future. Ultra HD / 4K recording and content have the capability to redefine our media experience – though mainstream adoption is still a few years off. With current 4K displays starting to trickle onto the market with premium pricing attached, it’s likely that mass adoption will have to wait until pricing hits consumers’ sweet spots. Over the next several quarters, we’ll see more reasonably priced 4K cameras and smartphones with this feature hit the market. It’s only a matter of time before 4K, in all the glorious detail that it brings, is mainstream.

And how about you? Are you planning on getting a 4K television? Do you think 4K video is overkill? The consumer electronics industry is gearing up for it in a big way, and even has plans for 8K and beyond. Let us know what you think down below!

Netflix rolls out Super HD to all members

Posted by wicked September - 27 - 2013 - Friday Comments Off

netflix_banner

Netflix announced yesterday that they are rolling out their highest quality video streams, dubbed Super HD, to all users. When initially released, Super HD was only available to customers using an Internet service provider (ISP) that had a direct connection with Netflix. With this new change, Netflix members on a Netflix connected ISP will still get preferential treatment, but if users on other ISPs have the necessary hardware and sufficient bandwidth, they can enjoy Super HD as well. The Netflix Super HD stream is provided at a higher bit rate stream and less compression than the normal 1080p HD stream.

In announcing this change, Netflix director of corporate communications Joris Evers also took the opportunity to plug the Netflix Open Connect delivery network. Open Connect is a system Netflix has developed to deploy TV shows and movies to servers that are closer to the end users in order to improve the viewing experience. You can check out the Netflix video below that explains more about how Open Connect works.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 with FHD AMOLED display coming soon

Posted by wicked March - 28 - 2013 - Thursday Comments Off

Samsung’s line of Galaxy Tabs are pretty nice, but only one rocks their impressive Super AMOLED technology. That being the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that has been available for some time. However, multiple reports have surfaced over the past few weeks suggesting Samsung is preparing to offer those same beautiful displays in full 1080p HD on an array of tablet sizes.

P1080916-540x405

All their tablets but the one mentioned above have been LCD displays, but that will soon be changing. Last week we reported on a possible 11.6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED tablet in the works from Samsung with blazing high retina resolution like the Nexus 10, and now it looks like those same panels will be coming to smaller slates.

According to SamMobile Samsung is getting ready to start manufacturing full 1920 x 1200 full HD Super AMOLED panels for use in multiple upcoming tablets. In particular they mention the Galaxy Tab 8 (not a note) that will take on the next generation iPad mini, as well as Google’s rumored second-gen Nexus 7.

They go as far as to state this will be unveiled at IFA in late August at the Samsung Unpacked event, which will be Unpacked Episode II of the year. First being the GALAXY S 4 event. This means Unpacked could have Samsung pretty busy with the rumored Galaxy Note III, the Galaxy Tab 3 (10-inch) as well as this 8-inch slate mentioned today. It’s about time Samsung refreshes their tablet lineup, as they’ve been focusing all their attention on the Note devices as of late.

If they can deliver a Galaxy Tab 8 with a full HD AMOLED panel, Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor, front facing speakers like current tablets and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie all for a good price – I’ll take two. Stay tuned, it will be a busy summer for Samsung.

Samsung rumored to be prepping 11.6-inch Tab with full HD AMOLED

Posted by wicked March - 21 - 2013 - Thursday Comments Off

We’ve been hearing all sorts of rumors out of the Samsung camp lately, but this is a juicy one we had to share. Most likely they have an array of tablets coming soon to compete with the Xperia Z and other high-end Android tablets, but imagine one with a Super HD AMOLED panel. Samsung’s best display that isn’t offered on their tablets. Well that’s where this rumor is headed.

IMG_6266

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 was Samsung’s first tablet with their Super HD AMOLED technology used on their smartphones, and apparently Sammy is preparing to offer that same stunning display in full HD for a 10.1 or 11.6-inch Android tablet. Rumors and insider information provided to SamMobile appears to back this up.

According to their sources Samsung is preparing a 10 or 11.6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED tablet that will have all the bells and whistles. Their latest Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 is nice, but certainly doesn’t have a fast Exynos 5 quad or Octa-core processor or an AMOLED panel. Their Samsung Nexus 10 has a retina blasting resolution, but it isn’t AMOLED. It’s a TFT LCD display.

The insider claims Samsung’s latest Exynos processors will power these slates, and hopefully Android 4.2 or 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be under the hood. Then of course they also claim a Galaxy Tab 3 Plus and the Galaxy Note III are all on the way and should be unveiled at IFA in Berlin, or at a Samsung Unpacked event. We’re guessing right around the end of August or early September. We’ll be live in Berlin for IFA so stay tuned.

MyMultitouch 84-inch 4K touch-display shows Android on the big screen

Posted by wicked March - 5 - 2013 - Tuesday Comments Off

Android is great on screens of all shapes and sizes, but how about enjoying some Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Angry Birds on a 84-inch 4K (Ultra HD) touch display? That’s exactly what we have for you below. At this years CeBit show MyMultitouch is showing off their new tablet – if you can call it that – and this 3,840 x 2,160 Ultra HD resolution screen called the Alvaro GIANT is capable of running Android, Windows, or almost anything else.

20130305_022111-cebit-13-random-580x326

Now we’ve seen massive screens before, and multitouch displays of this size were widely on display at CES 2013 this year in Vegas too. However this thing runs nearly any OS, works wonderfully, and is the first commercially available model with an actual price tag. You won’t want to see how big that price is, but it sure is neat. MyMultitouch is stating the price will be reasonable coming in roughly at $43,000 for retail. Of course this is something for ESPN or news outlets and not the average consumer, but I sure want one.

If you thought the upcoming 6.3-inch Galaxy Note III was big – check that thing out. Running Windows 8 with ease as well as our personal favorite, Android, this is quite the display. The pictures don’t do it justice and that 4K resolution is impressive – even though Android doesn’t support it. With support for over 30 touch inputs at a time, yet lets us play Angry Birds Space. How about that?

Running off a simple thumb drive with Android the display worked with ease, but had to scale down the resolution a little. You can see from the video above some gameplay and all. Obviously the Alvaro GIANT is aimed at retail and industrial markets, it’s still fun to check out. MyMultitouch tells us the display is protected by hardened glass, has a coating to help with fingerprints, can tell if you’re using a finger or a fist, and even works with gloves.

Hey, it’s only $43,000. That’s not too bad right?

A brief history of Android smartphone display resolutions

Posted by wicked January - 29 - 2013 - Tuesday Comments Off

If you’ve been following Android news over the last few years then you’ve undoubtedly noticed the advances in hardware. Indeed, processors are getting faster and phones are getting lighter, but there’s another component that has evolved over time. We’re talking, of course, about the display sizes and resolutions.

AT&T Pantech Discover Review

Posted by wicked January - 26 - 2013 - Saturday Comments Off

Today we have a new phone from the folks at Pantech to share with everyone. They’re usually known for their low priced cheapo phones but the new and improved Pantech Discover looks to shake them of that reputation. This device comes with a 4.8-inch HD screen and more than enough power under the hood to get the job done. All of that is just $49 from AT&T too. Read on for our full rundown on why this could be one of the best budget handsets on the market.

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 9.39.22 AM

Hardware
The Pantech Discover is actually extremely well rounded and certainly more than adequate to get most jobs done. While the design may be a bit odd to say the least, it helps the device seem sleek and low profile. Now what will you be working with for just $49.99 and a new 2-year contract? A pretty decent phone. The Pantech Discover comes equipped with a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720p HD display. And while it’s crisp, bright, and vivid, the touch sensitivity gave me an issue once or twice but nothing one can’t overcome.

Made of a durable lightweight aluminum and hard plastic the build quality is by far one of Pantech’s best yet. They’ve added stereo speakers and one of the better cameras I’ve seen in anything under $200. This enjoys a 12.6 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front for video chat and self portraits. 1080p video was actually rather decent (as was the sound) and you can see more on that below. Under the hood we have a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1GB of RAM to keep things smooth, 16GB of internal storage and micro-SD for added options, then one of the only downsides is the 2,100 mAh battery could be a bit bigger.

P1120361

With on-screen navigation buttons, a thin bezel, and a sleek and thin profile this phone actually feels smaller than a 4.8-inch handset like the Galaxy S III. Phones will smaller screens like the 4.5-inch RAZR HD are actually larger in size, so Pantech gets added points for that. To take you around the hardware we have micro-USB on bottom, the volume up/down rocker to the left and a stereo speaker grill. Up top is the 3.5mm headphone jack and a nicely placed power button. Then the right edge is graced with the second quality sounding stereo speaker. It looks odd from the side but this handset is actually really clean and sharp looking. I’m diggin in.

Overall the hardware is extremely well built for Pantech, especially for a $50 device, and had no issues or creaks from our limited time with the phone. In general Pantech’s certainly stepped up their game and we hope more like it are coming soon.

Software
We really are enjoying the camera and hardware of this device, but the one area it really is lacking is the software. Sadly Pantech managed to only toss this onto the market with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. No Jelly Bean here sadly, but hopefully it’s coming soon. The other negative with software is their awful user interface over the top of Android. If this was stock Jelly Bean I’d love it, but sadly that isn’t the case.

P1120354

Pantech’s added some great value and nice UI improvements to enhance usage, but their skin could use some work. I might have been a bit harsh above. It’s certainly manageable and decent to work with but we’ve seen better. Their colors were odd with different shades of Grey (no 50 shades of Grey jokes please) Orange, some occasional teal greens and more. It doesn’t feel very uniform would be a good way to describe it. That aside, they have pup-up play features for dual-screen video watching, or note taking. They’ve added multiple shortcuts for extra icons on the app drawer, and the same shortcut icons are on the bottom of the web browser. Here’s the pop-up feature we mentioned:

popnplay

You can move it wherever you’d like but sadly we can’t re-size it. If they enable resizing with the Jelly Bean update, we’d really be happy. We have the usual AT&T bloatware everywhere, and they even have their own folder full of bloatware apps right on the home screen. Delete that right away. Here’s some screenshots of the UI for a better idea of what to expect.

Another unique and nice idea is the notification bar. We have the usual quick toggles, but an advanced screen can be opened for more settings and options. Sadly the button to open that or clear notifications are too close together and I found myself hitting the wrong one. Same thing can be said about the settings button. It’s oddly shaped and crammed up top and hard to hit at times. I don’t want to focus so much to do simple tasks. Is that too much to ask?

In the end the software is quick, stable, fluid, and runs surprisingly well being Ice Cream Sandwich riddled with an overlay on top. The video below will give you a better idea of hardware, software, and everything else so take a peek.

Benchmarks
Enjoying a 4.8-inch HD display and the same 1.5 GHz dual-core processor as the US Galaxy S III, we were hoping for similar performance. While Quadrant offered a strong showing, AnTuTu put this phone to its knees for some reason. Daily usage, apps, multi-tasking, and gaming had absolutely zero issues though. As usual here’s a few benchmarks just for good measure.

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 10.46.55 AM

Performance was swift and speedy, and an update to Android 4.1 (or hopefully 4.2) Jelly Bean should improve the overall usage, but we had no complaints from day to day.

AT&T 4G LTE Speedtest
Rocking AT&T 4G LTE under the hood we had to give Speedtest a try to see just how things were holding up. And as expected, this thing was quick. AT&T’s LTE rollout hasn’t been as fast as Verizon but it’s catching up and doing just fine. Here in Vegas I averaged speeds topping 20 MB/s and nearly the same for uploads. These quick speeds seemed more stable than Verizon’s LTE around town too. I didn’t think I’d be saying that this early into 2013.

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 10.46.10 AM

Camera
The Pantech Discover comes with a 12.6 megapixel rear camera which adds a slight hump to an otherwise sleek handset, but the camera was solid. Sadly the zoom and autofocus has an obnoxious old zoom sound which I could do without, but the results were enough to overlook that. Photos were decent and nothing groundbreaking, but their 1080p video recording was better than expected. Another bright side of the recording was audio quality. The 1080p sample below is a good idea of what to expect and what we mean.

We snapped a few photos throughout the house and outside with this overcast weather and rain in Vegas, but images turned out crisp and not too grainy. Low light could use some help, but otherwise this will handle daily pictures and your average quick shot with ease.

Phone & Speakers
A big part of the design is the speakers on both sides. Rather than a tiny tin-can sounding rear speaker that gets muffled with almost any circumstance, the Discover rocks stereo speakers that are loud and crisp. I was extremely impressed with audio quality and no matter how you hold the phone the sound will still be loud and easy to hear. I really wish all smartphones and tablets used a better speaker and placement, and Pantech nailed it with this one.

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 10.38.58 AM

Using the actual phone function – yes like for phone calls – the Pantech Discover was pretty stellar. The earpiece was loud and crisp, almost too loud, and of course speakerphone was top notch. AT&T call quality is always good so we had no complaints. For $49.99 this is as well rounded as it gets.

Battery life
As far as daily usage and battery life the Discover was a mixed bag of potatoes for us. Having a huge display and only a 2,100 mAh battery had us concerned, but overall it handled its own quite well. With light usage the phone should last well over 24 hours and make it through a days work. However if you’re like us and constantly enjoying a YouTube video, getting multiple emails and Twitter notifications, and play a game or two you’ll be reaching for a charger before days end. On a heavy heavy day I got just 7 hours and 12 minutes from a full charge, but that wasn’t the usual usage scenario. It’s safe to say the average to moderate user should have no concerns.

Screenshot_2013-01-26-11-30-02

Wrap-Up
In closing, we’re a little torn on what direction to take with this smartphone. On one hand this is by far one of the absolute best budget handsets on the market, and easily will make almost any user happy. For $49.99 the Pantech Discover delivers HD visuals, dual-core speed, impressive camera capabilities and 4G LTE. On the flip side the screen is a little washed out, touch sensitivity could use a little improvement, and the UI needs some work and uniformity. Then again, this is only $49.99 and made me happy for a week – so we expect most will love it.

AT&T does have the HTC One X which offers a similar package, better display, and a UI that certainly has a little extra polish around the edges with Sense UI. Or you could spend the extra $100 and grab the Samsung Galaxy S III. To end we’d have to say you’ll need to hit a store and see for yourself. If you’re on a budget and want one of the best phones for the price, the Pantech Discover is it. If you can manage a little extra surely go with another option, but for $49.99 this can’t be beat. We’ll say it again. For $49.99 the Pantech Discover is as well rounded as it gets! Enjoy the rest of the pictures below.
