The new Honor 6A – My Review – A lot of phone for under £150


Welcome to my review of the Honor 6A. As smartphones creep up in price, it is refreshing to see a new phone being released for under £200. In fact the Honor 6A is currently available for £144.90 on Vmall UK , £139.99 on Pay as You Go with a £10 top up from Three UK or on contract and also from Amazon UK for under £140.

The Key Features / Specifications

– 5.0 inch HD (1280×720) IPS, 2.5D glass front
– Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-Core (4x 1.2 GHz + 4x 1.0 GHz)
– 2GB RAM, 16 GB ROM + microSD card up to 128 GB
– Android 7 (Nougat) + EMUI 5.1, July security update
– 13 MP main camera and 5 MP front camera
– 3.020 mAh battery
– Bluetooth 4.1
– LTE FDD:Cat4
– VoLTE
– Dual Nano SIM or Nano SIM + microSD
– FM Radio
– Headphone Jack

The Honor 6A also features a metal body, a 13mp rear camera that focuses in 0.5s using phase detection, selfie beauty options, eye comfort, a superb photo editor for enhancing your photos (more in my review on this) but it doesn’t have NFC or a fingerprint sensor. It also still uses a micro usb connection for charging and not the newer USB Type C. However, at this price most people will probably still be using Micro USB cables. EMUI 5.1 provides lots of extra options too, from themes, screen colour adjustments and more, all of which I have detailed below in my review.

Camera

The camera is one area where Honor shines. The auto mode is reliable and quick. All my dog action shots were in focus and the overall colour balance was impressive. Also the Honor camera app includes a superb front selfie mode with the ability to create your own custom beautify setting. Pro modes are available for photos and videos. In addition to the comprehensive camera app, Honor include a great photo editing app with more features than many paid photography apps. I have explained all the options in my video review below along with many other aspects of the Honor 6A. 

Camera Samples


George was running at high speed. Snapped in auto mode. 


George has a really long tongue. 


Fury, she’s looking happy. All 3 shots have captured the scenes really well, with accurate colour and contrast. 

Video Review including Detailed Camera Review & Showcase

Conclusion

With phones forever increasing in price, it is good to see an option available for under £150, that has a strong focus on photography with decent battery life. Recommended.   

Available from Vmall and Three UK and also on Amazon UK for under £140.

My Top 5 Smartphones of 2016 & a message from me 

Can you believe that 2016 is nearly at an end. And what a year 2016 has been. World events have been seismic and so has the technology. 

So what are my top 5 phones for 2016? 

5th Place – Asus Zenfone Zoom – What a phone and what a clever piece of hardware. With 3 x optical zoom, this was a fabulous phone and camera. As Apple has shown, having optical zoom is so useful. 

4th Place – LG G5 – the phone that has every technical specification. Replaceable batteries, micro sd card slot, dual lens system with a super wide lens (so cool), one of the best Bluetooth music using HD APT-X and so much more. Just let down by its build quality versus its competition. If the LG V20 had been sold in the U.K., this would have replaced the G5.

3rd Place – HTC 10 – the phone that everyone forgot about, yet is the phone that has the best audio quality with a headphone jack, solid premium build and super fast. I was going to put the Google Pixel phone in 3rd, but the HTC 10 is a lot less to buy.

2nd Place – Honor 8 – with its dual lens system, infra red blaster, gorgeous hardware and £300 price point, sometimes even less, this is a killer choice and a deserved second place. 

1st Place – Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Apple was helped towards this win due to Samsung suffering a PR disaster with their faulty Note 7. However, IMO there isn’t a single phone on sale at the moment that can offer everything that the iPhone 7 Plus provides. Great camera. Superb audio. iOS 10 and the Apple eco system. For me using the Apple Watch, with an iPad Air,  MacBook Pro and AirPods is a dream setup. HomeKit integrates tightly and Siri for me works very well. 

To catch up on my reviews on all the above phones, and all the other top phones of 2016, click here REVIEWS . Using that link, you can also get to all my Bluetooth headphone reviews and more.

Now in case anyone thinks I am an Apple fanboy or sheep, this is not the case. I just want the best of what’s available. Prior to the iPhone I was using Samsung S7 as my main phone with every Samsung accessory possible. However, after going through a horrific Samsung customer service experience with my Note 7, I have vowed never to use anything with a Samsung logo on it. Following my  Note 7 saga I also sold every Samsung piece of hardware I owned. 

The Holidays 

As we are approaching the holiday period,  news and reviews will be slower. This will allow me to look at the website design and try and improve it in a few places. I will also spend more time with family and friends. So whatever you are doing at this time of year, enjoy the next few days if you can and I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

Amazon’s First Drone Delivery – Incredible but at what cost to the economy? – Editorial

Amazon Prime Air Private Trial Flying-HIGH RES

Amazon revealed they have made successful deliveries by using a drone to two customers in under 30 mins from placing of the order. See video below.

Impressive for sure. This is a private beta test involving two people but this will expand to more and more people over time.

In terms of how the drones work and deliver the packages, this is a great use of technology. But at what cost does the technology come. Amazon made online shopping a thing. In the process high street shops couldn’t compete and started to close down. This trend is sadly continuing and ruining the communities and high streets. However, the flip side of the online boom are jobs in the warehouses and more delivery drivers being employed. (if you can call these types of jobs equal to the lost jobs)

If drones became more mainstream. delivery drivers will not be required. If Amazon replaces people in their warehouses with robots, the human being will no longer be required. So what will people do for work?

Slowly but surely, technology is replacing the workforce but there will come a point in time when people will not be able to find new jobs due to smart new technology. Then what do we do?

Apple HomeKit vs Amazon Echo Dot – My Experience – Alexa vs Siri vs Google

Black Friday arrived. And so did a price reduction on the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. I quickly setup the Echo Dot.

Echo Dot

Now in terms of potential options that can connect to the Echo Dot, the list is fairly vast. But what you have to do is add a skill into the Alexa app. I connected my Belkin Wemo Smart Lights to the Echo Dot via a third party skill using an app to link everything. The app was called Yonomi. Alexa needed me to speak voice commands pretty precisely otherwise it failed to deliver the result I required. In fact, after getting my lights setup, it just stopped working with the lights. I also had issues with voice recognition. Several times, it decided I wanted to enquire about the price of goods and asked if I wanted to buy it.

To stop unwanted purchases, I strongly recommend adding a pin code which you will need to be spoken to confirm any expenditure.

Other things, like playing music and other miscellaneous items worked. A bonus is playing podcast. Just say Alexa, play Tech Addicts Podcast and it will play the latest episode. This is accomplished by Tunein Radio.

All these skills and services make the Echo quite compelling and gives it an advantage over any other option with the following proviso being its security.

The only part that worried me about the Amazon Echo setup is the security aspect, or lack of. Skills were added via a third party. Amazon had no 2 factor authentication. And what about these third party services and apps needed to add skills? Again, the security aspect is not controlled centrally by Amazon or with 2 factor authentication.

Apple HomeKit.

HomeKit

I have seen the HomeKit app on my iPhone 7 Plus for ages and it did nothing. So after being totally frustrated with the Belkin Wemo Smart Lights, I invested in the Philips Hue lights, which work on both the Echo and Apple HomeKit.

I decided to setup the Philips Hue in my living room first. It was so simple to install and setup. Then to link into the Apple HomeKit and Siri was quick and easy as well. Remote access is controlled by my Apple TV v4. You cannot activate remote access unless you have 2 factor authentication on your iCloud account. So unlike Amazon’s setup, the Apple solution feels and is far more secure. No third parties controlling the internet devices.

Now saying, Hey Siri turn on the lights, or change colour to red, blue, green or activate a scene, or dim or turn off is simply a breeze. You don’t need to speak an exact phrase, you can converse fairly naturally. Now obviously, my wife needs to be able to control the lights. So from HomeKit settings, I sent her an invite.

My wife appears, having accepted my invite, with HomeKit now setup on her iPhone and Apple Watch with all the scenes and lights that I had on my setup. So now she could just ask Siri to operate the lights. My wife hates technology. This is probably the first time I have seen her enjoying the experience of adjusting the lights and colour of the lights just by her voice. As the expression goes, it did just work.

I also know that the Apple solution is the better option, since my wife asked if I could install a few more around the house. Also, using your Apple Watch to control your lights is cool IMO.

The problem with HomeKit is lack of devices and services that connect to it, although it does have decent security.

Alexa vs Siri vs Google.

So now we get down to the different platforms and voice control. All three are different and all three work in different ways. Google is better at finding information from the web. Google now has its own Google Home system. Whilst it is early days for Google, it does show some great promise. Alexa needs to be spoken to in a precise manner and links well with Amazon services and a range of third party apps. I am concerned about the lack of security currently with Amazon’s setup. Alexa struggles to recognise my voice quite a bit. Siri is more like a virtual personal assistant that in my world works really well. And now Siri controls my home lightning in a natural way.

As to which system suits you best will depend on what you need it to do and what hardware you own! To have the sleekest home setup you may more than one system.

One thing is certain, and that is the future is going to be fascinating!

Amazon Echo Dot – The Highs & Lows of Amazon’s Little Connected Miracle

Echo Dot<

Amazon had their Echo Dot on a Bank Holiday offer which took £10 off the price, making it £39.99. The offer is still valid today on Cyber Monday, so if you want one, click the link below in the useful links section at the end of the article.

There is not much to the Amazon Echo Dot. In the box is the Echo Dot itself, a micro USB cable that plugs into the UK adapter. A few mini booklets are provided. All you have to do is download the Amazon Alexa app, plug the Echo Dot in to the power socket, sign in via the app and it takes your wifi credentials and sets itself up.

You can now say things like, Alexa will it rain tomorrow. Or will it rain on Wednesday, and stuff like that. If you want the Echo Dot powered by a voice spoken assistant called Alexa, you can add more features, called skills. The USA has over 3,000 skills. The UK is somewhat behind that number, but it has only recently been launched in the UK.

So what can the Echo Dot do now –

– Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms and more
– Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify and TuneIn
– Controls lights, switches, thermostats and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Nest, tado° and others
– Hears you from across the room with 7 microphones for far-field hands-free voice control, even in noisy environments or while playing music
– Includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled device
– Always getting smarter – Alexa updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new features and skills

So in no particular order these are the lows and highs, starting with the lows first –

– sometimes it did not understand my voice/accent.
– you have to remember to start every sentence with Alexa. It is not aware of context and any commands have to be spoken precisely as it has been programmed
– my Belkin Wemo Smart Lights did not work with the Echo Dot without adding a skill (or service) from Konomi. Once added I could say things like “Alexa, lights on”. This was all working perfectly, and then none of the voice commands worked. I got this working again, only for it to fail again
– Be careful with compatibility. I though Wemo products were supported by the Echo Dot. Turns out it is only certain WeMo products and not my smart lights. (in hindsight it would have made more sense 2 years ago to spend the extra and buy Philips Hue lights)

And now for the highs –

– setup was a breeze
– I really like the small size of the Echo Dot. It is small enough to not disturb the look of any room. The microphones work really well.
– despite the issues with Belkin WeMo Smart light bulbs, this is the only product that has been able to connect to these and allow operation by voice
– Amazon’s Echo and Echo Dot has vastly more connectivity services than Apple’s HomeKit.
– The speaker on the Echo Dot is much louder than I expected and sat on a solid wooden shelf delivers a lot of punch for its size
– With Prime Music (the free option) I can play music from most genres
– If the sound is not loud enough, connecting to a bigger speaker is easy.
– Its early days but the amount of stuff and services the Echo can connect to is vast

The big plus is it doesn’t need voice training. That means my wife can turn the lights on, off or dim them using her voice. Early days but so far, its great fun and impressive little piece of kit.

The Deal of the Month – £99 for a Chromebook – It’s Awesome – Updated Again!

N22

A few days ago, I decided to take a gamble and buy the Lenovo N22 Chromebook that was on sale at £99. It is still on sale today, Saturday at £99.

The Lenovo N22 has 2gb ram, 32gb storage, 2 x USB 3, HDMI, headphone socket, stereo speakers, bluetooth, wifi, a 11.6 inch HD anti glare screen and more. It is a semi rugged design with stronger framing, a thicker cover, reinforced hinges and ports too. The screen hinge opens out to 180 degrees. Due to all these factors, the N22 is drop resistant from a height of 70cm. It is also fanless and has a non slip material.

It has an intel celeron N3060 processor that enables massive battery life of 14 hours. On top of all of this the integrated web cam rotates 180 degrees. The battery is user serviceable/replaceable.

The Lenovo N22 chromebook arrived yesterday morning and I used it all day yesterday. The battery is at 70% still!. Not only that it has an integrated carry handle and is a semi rugged design with a water resistant keyboard. The touchpad is sealed too.

N22 shortcuts

It has more too. The help guide also had a page of keyboard shortcuts. So cool. I will add a photo of these shortly too along with a video, but I just wanted to make sure you all new about this deal before it disappears. There are also shortcut keys.

Being a chromebook, all I had to do is sign into my Google account and all my music, videos, photos, email and documents were available. It is such a good experience. Not only that I am trialling wevideo to allow video editing using the cloud to process all the heavy lifting.

Last night I was streaming my music to my bluetooth headphones and also casting from the Chrome web browser to my TV. All from a £99 machine that actually has replaced my now defunct and wounded 6 year old macbook pro.

One more thing. There are 2 offers. First is 100gb Google Drive storage for 2 years. And if you havent had a Google Play Music trial before, you can redeem a 3 month trial.

The N22 is also ready for android apps. Don’t miss out on this great bargain.
