Whenever there’s a “plus” model of a smartphone, a non-plus variant has to exist. For Vivo, the regular the V7 launched only now, long after the V7+ came out. The wait, however, seems to have been worth it.
It may be late to the market, but the ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is finally starting to trickle out, with Asia being the next stop for the Taiwanese manufacturer’s most premium — and most expensive — smartphone yet.
Nintendo’s palm-sized throwback consoles are incredibly hard to come by right now, but thanks to some crafty digging — and lots of impatience — both are in our hands for a full unboxing video with gameplay footage.
As soon as you read the name, you’d automatically think the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is one those sleek Android tablets you’ve seen in the news. That’s only half right, because this Galaxy is a full-fledged Windows 10 convertible through and through.
We have it. Both of “it,” actually. Just like last year, the Apple iPhone 7 comes in two sizes, with the standard version coming in at 4.7 inches and the bigger and more expensive Plus model sporting a 5.5-inch display.
This is it: the final entry in our supersized smartphone series. After covering large handsets that specialize in selfies, look like a premium flagship, and load up on the specs sheet, we’re now looking at a phone prioritizing an ultra size above all else. Indeed, the 6.8-inch ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra will astound you with its absurd proportions and premium packaging.
When Xiaomi decided to go big with their next smartphone, they weren’t kidding. The Mi Max overshadows most handsets in terms of size, pushing 6.44 inches of display on a full-metal body. It’s by far the China-based manufacturer’s largest phone since starting out, and it has GadgetMatch’s full attention right now.
Last week, we spent a generous amount of time on the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro. It got our unboxing and hands-on treatment as seen above, plus an in-depth look into how well the phone works as a daily driver. With all the exposure we’ve given this phablet, why would we feature it again here? The answer is quite simple, and it involves more of its kind.
How big is too big, really? After seeing phablets as large as 6.8 inches in screen size, anything around 5.5 inches is beginning to feel normal. We’re now taking a look at the Xperia XA Ultra, which is Sony’s largest midranger this year, sitting in what we feel is a comfortable 6 inches.
As of this month, it’s reportedly already available in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Next up are Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines in August. A ZenFone 3 launch event is expected to take place in India sometime in September. Shipments could be headed to Europe, Japan, and the United States later in the year.
