Samsung Galaxy Watch full review: Everything you need to know

Published

on

The wait is over. Samsung has finally Unpacked the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 flagship. Though all the eyes were on the latest Note, the company also unveiled its latest smartwatch dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Watch alongside.

Samsung Galaxy Watch: Full specifications

If you’ve seen or owned the previous generation Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, the latest Samsung Galaxy Watch will look more or less familiar to you. Samsung decided to stay with the tried and tested design language which is not a bad thing by any means.

Talking about the size of the watch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch comes in two size variants – 42mm and 46mm. There are three color variants available at present – Black, Silver and Rose Gold. The Rose Gold variant, however, is only available in the smaller 42mm size which is Samsung’s take on making the device feasible for the female audience out there.

The interface and the gestures are pretty familiar – we get a rotating bezel which can be used to access the watch menu and perform a lot of useful actions. On the right side (provided you wear the watch on your left hand), there are two buttons (more tactile than the previous generation watches by Samsung), one of which would take you back to the home screen while the other can be configured as per your needs – you can set it to open a specific app of your own choosing or you can set it to start a workout routine or start the GPS (yes, there is GPS) if you are going jogging or something.

Moving on to the display, the Samsung Galaxy Watch has a fully circular 1.3-inch AMOLED display (1.2-inch for the 42mm variant) giving out a resolution of 360×360 pixels and a pixel density of 390ppi.

By default, the stock watch straps are made of rubber, though you can change them as per your needs. Talking about the straps, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is water resistant meaning that you can take a shower while wearing it. For this, we’d recommend that you stick to the rubber strap as a leather strap probably won’t last that long.

As far as the battery life of the watch is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is made to last at least 4 days of usage (we get a 472 mAh battery) as per the company. The 42mm variant, however, has a much smaller battery and we cannot just expect it to last that long on a single charge.

Moving on to the storage, we get 4GB of internal storage and a whopping 1.5GB of RAM which is pretty significant. We get a Tizen-based wearable OS 4.0 and in case you are wondering as to whether or not you would get enough apps and watch faces, you can stay rest assured.

The watch supports LTE meaning that you won’t have to rely on a smartphone to operate it. This was stressed a lot during the launch event as well.

Final verdict

samsung galaxy watch hands onThe Samsung Galaxy Watch is a pretty potent choice of a smartwatch. We get the ever-friendly Samsung approach of cramping in as many features as possible. The presence of LTE makes it a standalone device and you can take it outdoors without having to bring your smartphone along. Definitely worth giving a try.

Check out the amazing (and exclusive) folding iPhone Z concept from Caviar

Published

on

caviar iPhone z foldable

Caviar has come up with an amazing looking concept of an iPhone which they call the iPhone Z. The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

Caviar doesn’t want to languish unaware until the autumn premiere of the new Apple product and offers the giants from Cupertino their own concept of the new iPhone to review.

Obviously, the time of great changes and serious updates has come – iPhone adepts are missing truly grandiose innovations and revolutionary ideas, this is why Caviar designers and engineers introduced an extraordinary concept that will exceed the expectations of the audience.

iPhone z foldable

The concept from Caviar is called iPhone Z, this is the sign of the new, young generation and the image of the silhouette that is “drawn” by the facets of the evolving smartphone at the same time.

Caviar’s version of a foldable phone can be used in various manners. There is a selfie mode, a tablet mode, a laptop mode, and a screen mode.
• Selfie mode: triple camera can be used combined with a part (1/3) of the flexible screen
• Tablet mode: the maximally opened screen: 3876 x 2758 pixels (215mm x 153mm)
• Laptop mode: it is convenient to use the keyboard matching the screen size (68,8mm x 153mm)
• Screen mode: allows the user to put the smartphone on the table and watch videos with comfort.

The iOS interface automatically responds to the position of the smartphone and its bent parts in space and switches to the desired mode. The foldable iPhone sports a bezel-less Super Retina HD (458 ppi) display. The aspect ratio in the folded and unfolded form (due to the three-part structure) is optimal for devices of such a form factor.

Folded, the screen is pulled like a modern smartphone (20:9 aspect ratio). In the unfolded form the screen has a typical aspect ratio for the iPad about 3:2. In contrast to the Samsung Galaxy Fold where the screen is square.

The concept by Caviar incorporates two cameras. A front-camera with Face ID dot projector. And the main camera system consisting of a 15-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 15-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 15-megapixel telephoto camera.

The foldable smartphone is equipped with an in-display Touch-ID (in addition to the possibility of Face-ID) because many iPhone XS users expressed their dissatisfaction with the absence of this option. In addition, Apple patented a new type of screen dactyloscopic sensor, that’s why Caviar engineers offer to use this technology in the new device.

The concept by Caviar is also equipped with a USB-C connector, this way, the revolutionary device will become even more comfortable for the users. The information about the possible switch of Apple to this standard also appears in the reports of analysts.
