Sony Xperia Tablet Z review 2022

August 9, 2016 PTdrivers 0

The Xperia Tablet Z is Sony's attempt at making a comeback in the tablet segment after its previous attempts with Xperia Tablet S and Tablet P. The tablet is based on the company's recent flagship phone the Xperia Z in terms of design as well as software and is without doubt one of the sleekest devices available in the market. Is it the best tablet that money can buy at this point in time? We try to find out.
Build/ Design
At 6.9mm, Xperia Tablet Z is the thinnest tablet around – iPad fourth generation is 9.4mm thick, in case you are wondering. Sony engineers have done a commendable job, packing in all the power into such a sleek device. It weighs 495 grams and for a 10-inch tablet the weight to dimensions ratio of the device makes it easy to carry. The tablet follows the same OmniBalance design that we've seen in the Xperia Z and sports a rectangular shape with subtly rounded corners. The front of the tablet is dominated by its 10.1-inch TFT display surrounded by a Blac..

Review: Asus Transformer Prime [year] 3

Review: Asus Transformer Prime 2022

July 5, 2016 PTdrivers 0

When the Asus Transformer Prime hit our desk, it was like Christmas, Diwali, New Years and all our respective birthdays had arrived at the same time. If that doesn't tell you how eager we were to get our grubby mits on this tablet, we don't know what will. The Transformer Prime was launched earlier on in parts of the world, but India is finally catching up with the tablet. We got one in our hands and we put it through its paces and here are our observations.
Hardware
The Transformer Prime created waves across the 'tabletverse' when it was announced. Powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chip, the device is the only quad core tablet in the market. Another noteworthy addition to the hardware list is the new Super IPS display under a Gorilla Glass panel. The screen acts not only as a major fingerprint magnet, but is also highly reflective, meaning it has a major glare problem. This is where the Super IPS display comes in. Once enabled, the screen's brightness ch..

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 [year] 4

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 2022

November 16, 2017 PTdrivers 0

Over the last few years, Lenovo has experimented with a number of designs for tablets, laptops and hybrids. No other company has launched so many different models which twist, flip, bend or detach in different ways. The approach seems to have paid off, though, because Lenovo has decided to extend its ideas to other parts of its portfolio.
The Yoga Tablet is an 8-inch Android device which honestly doesn't require any of the acrobatic design we first saw in the Yoga ultrabooks. Android tablets generally don't come with keyboards, so there isn't anything to detach or hide away. The mechanism in question here is a kickstand that swivels around a thick cylindrical base, and allows the Yoga Tablet 8 to stand up, recline, or lie slightly raised.
There's another reason for the cylinder's existence: a massive 6,000mAh battery that would never have fit into such a slim body otherwise. Lenovo has made the main body of the Yoga Tablet just a few millimetres thin, but the b..

Zync Quad 10.1 [year] 5

Zync Quad 10.1 2022

October 10, 2016 PTdrivers 0

Zync Quad 10.1 tablet packs in 1.5GHz quad-core processor and is priced at Rs. 14,990. Is this tablet one of the right priced, right sized offerings? Let's find out in this review.

Hardware/ Design
The Zync Quad 10.1 looks identical to the previously launched Quad 9.7. Most of the front is taken by the display and there is a broad black bezel on all sides. There are no physical buttons on the front of tablet and that takes some time getting used to.
The sides are White in colour while the back panel is shiny Silver. Overall, the colour scheme of the Zync Quad 10.1 makes the tablet look cheap.
The front camera is placed at the middle towards the top (when the tablet is held in the landscape mode). On the top right are the charging slot and 3.5mm jack. While on the right panel are the power/ standby button, the volume increase and decrease button. The buttons are well placed and easy to use.
The microSD card slot, HDMI port and Micro-USB port are under a flap cover, which is place..

Le 1s [year] Review 6

Le 1s 2022 Review

February 8, 2016 PTdrivers 8

LeEco (the company formerly known as LeTV) is the latest to join the long, long list of Chinese smartphone manufacturers trying their luck in India. The company doesn't have any of the advantages of being an early mover, and no matter how shockingly low it can push prices, it won't be the first to be doing so. Still, there's a lot to like about the Le 1s, which is quite full of interesting features considering its budget price tag.
LeEco hasn't gone only for impressive specifications; it's clearly trying to achieve a level of desirability, as you can immediately see from the Le 1s's metal body. While the much more expensive Le Max (Review | Pictures) took on the might of mainstream flagships and came up looking just a little short, LeEco is hoping that the Le 1s will have much wider appeal.
Look and feel
There's only so far you can go with specifications, and so LeEco has decided to bring premium materials and build quality to the budget smartphone sp..

HTC Flyer [year] Review 7

HTC Flyer 2022 Review

March 16, 2016 PTdrivers 0

Introduction
Introduced at the Mobile World Congress in February HTC took a different approach towards tablet design. The Flyer was unique amongst its Android brethren from the moment of inception, featuring a 7-Inch display, Android Gingerbread instead of Honeycomb, and a stylus.
The question is, do these make the Flyer a better tablet device in comparison to the competition?
Packaging and Content
Device presentation has always been HTC's forte and with their flagship tablet HTC pulls all stops. Normally, tablets are pricey and don't come with a decent amount of usable accessories. But HTC provides a suave leather case for the device, lined with felt-like micro-fibers, headphones, the HTC Magic Pen, the USB cable, the charger and the Flyer itself.
Hardware and Styling
The Flyer features a uni-body design,which is immensely classy. If you happen to miss the large HTC logo on the rear, you could easily mistake it for an Apple product. The back is covered by a layer of aluminum..

WWE 2k16 [year] 8

WWE 2k16 2022

August 26, 2017 PTdrivers 0

The WWE has been in video games for decades now, back from when it used to be called the World Wrestling Federation. These games aren't always the best games, but the over the top presentation and the accessibility of play means that the WWE games are a great couch multiplayer experience that you can always enjoy with your friends. WWE 2k16 isn't breaking from this tradition either, but along the way, it suffers from a problem that's common to many sports games.
These games need to strike a balance between the presentation as we see it on television – to keep fans interested – but it also needs to be playable, and finding the balance between the presentation and playability is often a challenge. The series is working towards that balance and if you look at the WWE games from WWE 2k14 onwards, you'll see a steady grind that's polishing away rough surfaces and leaving behind a game that's fun for fans and newcomers.
WWE 2k14 was a fun brawler that was grea..
