Ekotek Ekonic Justice League Smartphone Unboxing

Published

on

Ekotek’s Ekonic Justice League Smartphone is a must-have for comic book fans!

It comes in this glorious-looking box featuring the team

Inside are more DC goodies like these stickers

Here’s the phone powered up. Superman’s the default wallpaper on this unit

The back features this gorgeous artwork featuring the Justice League along with villains

These are all the contents of the box. We’ll take a closer look

It comes with Flash-themed earphones

The USB cable looks like it came straight out of Themiscyra

The power adapter is Wonder Woman-themed

There are also three more back panels to choose from. You can use Batman, Superman, or The Flash

It has two SIM card slots and a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of extra storage

It’s a basic smartphone through and through with a quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of memory, and 16GB of storage — not as blazing fast as The Flash nor as powerful as Superman, but at least you get to see them on the phone every day.

The cameras are similar to what you’d find on budget phones: 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing shooters. What are a little underwhelming are the 2500mAh battery capacity and 720p screen resolution, which are lacking for a 5.5-inch phone.

If you’re a die-hard DC or Justice League fan, it’s hard to resist this phone with all of the Justice League goodness it comes with. It’s also limited edition, as only 5,000 units will be sold. Ekonic is launching the Justice League smartphone in partnership with Smart.

To get your hands on it, you’ll need to add PhP 400 for 30 months to any Smart postpaid plan. Just go to a selected Smart store and request for the Justice League Smartphone.

Lenovo Z5 Pro GT makes every other phone look sad

First to come with Snapdragon 855 and 12GB RAM

Published

on

There are phones that surprise us; there are others that simply want to watch the smartphone landscape burn.

Lenovo launched the Z5 Pro GT, and it definitely deserves that overly long moniker. Not only is it the first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC, but it’s also equipped with a whopping 12GB of memory and 512GB of storage.

It doesn’t stop there: The Z5 Pro GT makes use of a slider mechanism similar to what Xiaomi implemented on the Mi Mix 3. This houses the 16- and 8-megapixel selfie camera setup under the slider, as well as the 16- and 24-megapixel shooters on the rear.

Coupled with a 6.39-inch 1080p AMOLED display with an under-display fingerprint scanner, the Z5 Pro GT demolishes most handsets launched in 2018. Even more impressive? The pricing!

Believe it or not, the max memory and storage configuration mentioned earlier retails for only CNY 4,398 or approximately US$ 640. This can lower itself to CNY 3,398 (US$ 495) for the 8GB+256GB variant, CNY 2,998 (US$ 435) for the 8GB+128GB model, or CNY 2,698 (US$ 390) for 6GB+128GB.

There are only a few downsides to this product. One, it doesn’t offer 5G connectivity despite having a compatible chipset; it may be because of the phone’s early release happening in January. Two, its battery capacity is only at 3350mAh, which is below-average for something that packs so much power.

All this info may not even matter to most consumers. Unless you reside in China or have access to reliable online retailers, chances are slim that you’ll see this outside of its homeland.

Dual-display ZTE Nubia X survives durability tests

Both the front and back displays are tested

Published

on

Before the NEX Dual Display from Vivo, ZTE already launched their own dual display smartphone last October. The Nubia X is pretty neat and it’s one of the better-looking phones in the market. Two reasons: It doesn’t have an unsightly notch and it has an extra display on its back which can either be useful or for showing off.

One of the initial questions we have when we see a new design approach is: How good is its build quality? Thankfully, Zack of the JerryRigEverything channel on YouTube can answer the question for us.

If you haven’t seen any of Zack’s videos before, you’ll either have a satisfying or stressful feeling..

As always, the scratch test was done first. Like with other flagship phones with tempered glass, the Nubia X’s body (both front and back) scratched at a level 6 on the Mohs hardness scale.

The flame test came next and it got interesting in this part. The main display of the Nubia X is an LCD panel, so after it was exposed to an open flame, the pixels were able to recover slowly. The rear AMOLED panel, on the other hand, exhibited a different behavior. The rear display’s pixels went white and never recovered.

Finally, the bend test was painful to watch as always. Spoiler alert: the Nubia X survived.

Here’s the full video for your pleasure:
