Here are the videos you don’t want to miss this week – April 23, 2016
Sometimes there are slow weeks in the Android world, but those don’t come around too often. This was definitely not one of those weeks.
Our video team has been incredibly busy this past week bringing you hands-on videos, reviews, and much, much more. Gary and Bailey were able to review the HUAWEI P9, Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 4S this week, and Josh just recently published his review of the HTC10 Ice View Case and Hi-Res Earphones. Additionally, John V. and Lanh got the chance to go hands-on with the latest from Acer and LeEco, the company formerly known as Letv. There are plenty of other great videos you should check out as well, so let’s not delay any further. Here are the Android-related videos you don’t want to miss this week.
HUAWEI P9 review
The HUAWEI P9 definitely ticks a lot of the right boxes. It has a decent sized battery, it’s incredibly thin, and it’s a pretty nice improvement over its predecessor. With that said, does the HUAWEI P9 sacrifice too much for the money? Check out Gary’s full review to learn more.
Xiaomi Mi 5 review
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is one of the first smartphones on the market to run a Snapdragon 820 processor. It’s also one of the better looking device to launch so far in 2016, which is quite the feat considering the competition. Is the new Mi 5 worth your money? Bailey’s full review will point you in the right direction.
Xiaomi Mi 4S review
Xiaomi’s Mi 4S might be a good smartphone for the price, but how does it fit in with other devices in Xiaomi’s lineup? Check out Bailey’s full Xiaomi Mi 4S review to learn more.
HTC 10 Ice View Case and Hi-Res Earphones review
Alongside the 10, HTCreleased two new accessories that you’ll definitely want to check out. Be sure to watch Josh’s full review of the HTC10 Ice View Case and Hi-Res Earphones.
