You might be able to refer to this past week as the “calm before the storm.” Mobile World Congress 2016 is already happening next month. As our team is working hard to get things ready for Barcelona, we’ve also managed to bring you a handful of reviews and hands-on videos that you should check out.
We’re trying something a little bit different in 2016 in regards to our review format. For specific flagship devices, we’ll be bringing you a video review, of course, but also a written review done by someone else who has had an equal amount of time with the device. We’re doing this with the aim of bringing you two different peoples’ opinions on that smartphone. The first review that we’re doing with the new format is the Huawei Mate 8 review, Huawei’s latest flagship handset. That’s not all, though. We’ve also managed to bring you a full review of the super cheap Raspberry Pi Zero, and brought you our first impressions of the OPPO F1.
Without any further ado, here are the Android-related videos you don’t want to miss this week.
Huawei Mate 8 review
Huawei’s new Mate 8 is one heck of a flagship smartphone. It has a big display, awesome fingerprint reader, exceptional build quality and solid performance, but does this phone have any downsides? For a complete look, check out Josh’s video review above, and Nirave’s full written review attached below.
Raspberry Pi Zero review
The Raspberry Pi Zero is the latest compact computer from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. What makes it so special? The standout feature is that it only costs $5. Yes, it’s really that cheap. It might be hard to complain about its faults when keeping the price point in mind, though there are a few weaknesses you should know about before you pick a few of these up for your next project. For everything you need to know about the Raspberry Pi Zero, be sure to check out Gary’s full review.
A quick look at the latest from OPPO
Earlier this month Oppo unveiled a new smartphone aimed at today’s selfie generation, but is it any better than other selfie-centric smartphones? Learn more about OPPO’s new F1 smartphone in Nirave’s full hands-on and first impressions.
