People compare Huawei Mate7 vs Note4 vs iPhone6+

Posted by Charbax – June 11, 2015

Last year, I asked normal people which of the top-3 high-end phablets of last year they thought was the better one among Huawei Mate 7, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the flagship phablets of end 2014 and first half of 2015, from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. I think the Mate7 is the best among those, let's see how Huawei Mate 8 will compare with Note5 and iPhone6S+.

nevo watch, Swiss Smartwatch with LEDs, vibrate, BT, 5 months battery life

Posted by Charbax – June 9, 2015

nevo watch is a beautiful classical style minimalist connected smartwatch on a Swiss Timekeeping movement from Swatch Group for showing the time, French design, integrates activity tracking, phone notifications as beautiful LED lights, 11 white lights that light up behind each hour indicator, 6 of them programmable in 6 different beautiful colors, nevo also vibrates awesomely on notifications and the alarm. nevo comes with an Android and iOS app to pair with a smartphone over Bluetooth 4.1 LE. Amazingly the battery lilfe is 3-5 years for the time and 3-5 months for the connected Smartwatch with LED and vibrate feature. Changing the standard cell battery is easy. I am hoping they can support vibrate and color combinations customized by contact in each app, for example I should feel when a specific person is contacting through a specific app.

Right now they sell nevo watch at $329 for basic and $449 for perpetual solar charging version on, consider this is a Swiss watch movement inside, not cheap stuff. Though I do think if they could price it at $99 basic and $149 solar charger version, or perhaps $149 and $199, that would make it easier to sell many. And if they sell many, it's more worthwhile for them to upgrade the app functionality with patterns in vibrate and color LEDs for specific in-app notification behavior, for example I'd like it to light and vibrate differently for my mom, girlfriend, boss or other contacting me in each app. And also sync pattern of LED and vibrate with Android alarms and Google calendar. Check back for my review of the nevo watch!
