Here are the videos you don’t want to miss this week – February 6, 2016
It hasn’t been all too busy in the Android world this week, but our video team has been hard at work to bring you some wonderful Android-related coverage.
This was a very comparison-heavy week. Josh just published his big Huawei Mate 8 vs Nexus 6P comparison, Lanh compared the honor 5X, OnePlus X and Nexus 5X, and Gary did a great job at comparing all of the fast charging standards out there. That’s not all though – Bailey got a chance to review the new BLU Vivo XL, Gary took an in-depth look at what’s inside the Kirin 950 processor, and Joe rounded up the best Android apps of the week.
Alright, I’m done talking your ear off. Without any more delay, here are the videos you don’t want to miss this week.
Huawei Mate 8 vs Nexus 6P
The Huawei Mate 8 and the Nexus 6P are two of the manufacturer’s best smartphones to date. But how do they compare against one another? Be sure to check out Josh’s full comparison of the Mate 8 and Nexus 6P.
honor 5X vs Nexus 5X vs OnePlus X
The new honor 5X and OnePlus X are both available for under $250, but how do they compare with this year’s inexpensive Nexus device? Join Lanh as he compares the honor 5X, OnePlus X and the Nexus 5X.
Fast charging standards compared
With so many fast charging standards out there (Qualcomm Quick Charge, OPPO VOOC, MediaTek PumpExpress+, Motorola TurboPower), how can you tell which one is the best? Gary compares all of these standards and tries to figure out which fast charging method is the best out there.
BLU Vivo XL review
We don’t normally see AMOLED displays, full 4G LTE coverage and full day battery life on sub-$150 smartphones, but that’s not the case for the BLU Vivo XL. Of course, a smartphone that’s this inexpensive doesn’t come without its flaws, but is the low price point enough to make it a good value? Check out Bailey’s full review of the BLU Vivo XL.
An in-depth look at the Cortex-A72 and Mali T880
One of the key CPU core designs for 2016 is the Cortex-A72, which can be found in the Kirin 950. The question is, how well does it perform? Gary explains everything you need to know in his informative video attached above and written portion below.
