Huawei Mate S

Huawei’s Fingerprint Sense 2.0 is not your average fingerprint sensor. Although it can be used to do trivial things like unlock your phone or make mobile payments, it also allows you to control apps on the phone in new ways. For example, you can scroll through images or select particular notifications by moving your finger on the sensor. You can even trigger that perfect selfie shot with it. The new sensor resides at the back of the phone, which is the perfect spot for these types of control.

Then, there is Knuckle Sense 2.0, which enables your knuckles to crop photos or trace letters on the display for shortcuts to your favorite apps.

That stuff sounds cool, but probably the biggest news is that Force Touch will also be onboard in select versions of the phone. Apple is expected to debut this feature on the iPhone 6S, but Huawei beat Apple to it. With Force Touch, the Mate S will be able to sense how hard you are “touching” the display. Different types of force can be used for quicker zooms when looking at pictures, or to access app shortcuts. Huawei also claims it can weigh things such as oranges, though we’re not sure why you’d need that.

The Mate S has a premium feel with a metal body, and it should be comfortable to hold since it’s only 7.5mm thick and has a curved back. The Mate S sports a nano coating to protect it from small spills.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is an Android smartphone produced by Sony. As part of the Z Series, the Z3 Compact is a scaled-down version of the Sony Xperia Z3 and was unveiled during a press conference in IFA 2014 on 4 September 2014. Like the Z1 Compact, the Z3 Compact is water-proof with an IP rating of IP65 and IP68. The phone features a new display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, and has the ability to record 4K videos.

The Z3 Compact is designed with what Sony describes as "omni-balance", which is focused on balance and symmetry. Instead of a metal frame, the phone has curved edges and translucent plastic with tempered glass on the front and back. Measuring 8.6 mm thick, the device is thicker than the Z3, but is lighter, weighing at 129 g, due to its smaller size.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact features a 4.6 inch BRAVIA IPS Triluminos display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels (HD) with a pixel density of 319 ppi. With Live LED technology, it combines red and green phosphorus with blue LEDs to produce brighter and more uniform light without over-saturation, allowing the display to reproduce colors that are more vibrant and brighter.

It comes with a 20.7 megapixels camera, the same as the Z3, with an Exmor RS sensor and an ISO rating of 12800, designed to improve image quality in low light conditions. The camera features Sony G Lens, which is aimed at giving a wider frame for taking photos, and is also capable of filming in 4K.

On the inside, the Xperia Z3 Compact features a tweaked quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (known as Snapdragon 801) clocked at 2.5 GHz with a high capacity 2600 mAh battery, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, about 11 GB of which are available for the user and supporting a microSD card.

The Z3 Compact initially ran Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Sony's custom launcher and some additional applications, such as Sony's media applications (Walkman, Album and Movies). The Z3 Compact can play PlayStation 4 games via Remote Play.
Sony began an upgrade for both the Z3 Compact and the Z3 to Android 5.0 "Lollipop" and announced upgrades for other Xperia Z devices in March 2015. Starting in July 2015, Sony released an Android 5.1.1 update for the Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact, with the other Xperia Z devices to follow in August 2015.

The bootloader can be unlocked on both Z3 Compact and Z3 in order to install a custom ROM, but will void the warranty and delete the DRM keys, disabling the camera noise reduction feature and access to Sony Entertainment Media.

Critical reception
The Z3 Compact received generally positive reviews, with PC Advisor describing it as a great little smartphone offering everything available on the full-size Z3, with a design that is thinner and lighter with a larger display than the previous Z1 Compact. The Register praised the phone for its outstanding battery life. The Verge praised its small size while retaining the excellent battery life and performance specs of the flagship handset.

HTC One M9+

HTC’s One family is all about luxury and the continued pursuit of brilliance. The original design of the HTC One was grounded in a philosophy of “simple, crafted, and human,” driven further by our goal of creating the first beautiful, seamless, all-metal phone. This philosophy and our belief in the power of great design have been carried forward in the new HTC One M9 and M9+.

The HTC One M9+, available in China, carries on the legacy of the iconic all-metal body and includes such features as a 5.2” display, HTC BoomSound® with Dolby Audio™ surround sound, and HTC’s improved Duo Cameras.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these new features.

The HTC One M9+ comes with a 5.2” 2K display to give you a more immersive viewing experience without compromising comfort; you can still comfortably hold this phone in the palm of your hand. And the new MediaTek Helio X10 core processor ensures smoother movie playback and sharper photos.

HTC BoomSound™ with Dolby Audio
HTC’s dual front-facing speakers have been combined with 5.1 channel Dolby Audio surround sound simulation to deliver a high-definition, high-quality listening experience.

HTC Duo Cameras
The HTC One M9+ comes with a 20-megapixel Duo Camera to provide a level of detail that even the most avid phoneographers will appreciate. And the HTC UltraPixel™ front-facing camera features dynamic auto-exposure to deliver sharper, more balanced shots no matter the lighting conditions.

HTC Sense 7
Customizability is the name of the game with HTC’s Sense 7™ technology. Create personalized themes for your phone with HTC Themes and find those hidden Internet gems with an enhanced HTC BlinkFeed™. Sense 7™ also looks at the way you use your phone at home, work, or out and about, and personalizes your home screen to make sure you’re seeing the most relevant apps anytime, anywhere.

Fingerprint Authentication
A new fingerprint sensor, located on the front of the phone for easy access, helps keep your HTC One M9+ secure. Multi-directional sensors make it easy: just place your finger on the sensor in any direction to unlock your phone.

HTC One M9+ specs
The most interesting update to the HTC One M9+ specs is the chipset, which is not a Snapdragon 810, or a Snapdragon at all for that matter. Perhaps resulting from complaints of overheating, HTC has jumped ship over to MediaTek, and will use an MT6795T octa-core chipset clocked to 2.2 GHz. There will be also be 3 GB RAM onboard, and 32 GB internal storage capacity (as well as a microSD slot). Check out the full HTC One M9+ spec sheet below:

Nokia Lumia 930

The Nokia Lumia 930 is a smartphone developed by Nokia that runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. It was announced on April 2, 2014 at Microsoft Build 2014 and is scheduled to be released in June 2014.The device is aimed to be a successor to the Lumia 900 series of flagship handsets. It is succeeded by the Lumia 950 and its XL equivalent.

The Nokia Lumia Icon, which is exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the United States, is essentially a derivative of the Lumia 930. The two versions share a common design and specifications; the only differences are that the 930 is pre-loaded with the newer Windows Phone 8.1 rather than the previous-generation Windows Phone 8 Update 3 on the Icon. The 930 is also equipped with GSM radios and available as both carrier-locked and unlocked versions, as opposed to the CDMA technology used in the Icon, which is also locked to Verizon's network.

Neither it nor the Icon has the Glance feature because the AMOLED display lacks "display memory".

It comes with an aluminium shell and overall high-end specs. In the camera department the new model features a 12.3MP Sony sensor and an F2.0 aperture. The lack of optical image stabilization should be made up for by large pixels with a size of 1.55 microns, while more phase detection sensors and a laser "time of flight" sensor allow for faster and more precise focusing. 

The Nexus 6P was released alongside the Nexus 5X (created by LG), being the first phones to run on the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The 6P device has better specs than its sibling, but they have in common the new fingerprint scanner, which is placed below the rear camera. Only that the Nexus 5X has a simple plastic body and has smaller dimensions, while the Nexus 6P is made of metal and has a black bar running across the upper part of the back, which contains the camera (in the right side). There’s another phone with the same design, ZTE’s Grand S, and this company accused Huawei of stealing the idea from them. Coincidence or not? If you’ll look at both phones, you’ll see that they’re similar and we’re starting to believe that ZTE is right.The 5.7-inch display looks shiny and colorful, and is extremely responsive under touch. The QHD resolution means everything is exceptionally sharp on screen, while the AMOLED technology makes colors bright and vibrant.6P comes in three variants of colors: Aluminum, Graphite and Frost, its physical dimensions are 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and its weight is 178grams. The screen is AMOLED, so it should produce vibrant images. Its size is 5.7-inch and it’s capable of supporting a QHD resolution of 1440×2560 pixels at 518ppi, so the images are pretty sharp and the brightness is much better than on the previous Nexus 6, which reached only 260 nits.

Ellen Pao CEO of Reddit Leaves Office

The executive Ellen Pao, CEO of Reddit online forum, stepped down on Friday (10 july 2015). The negative impact on how the company dealt with the dismissal of an employee would have motivated the output Pao. Steve Huffman, co-founder of Reddit, will assume the position of president.

On Monday (6 july 2015), Ellen Pao apologized on the way which the company dealt with the dismissal of Victoria Taylor Communications Director, responsible for "Ask me anything" Reddit.

"We blew it. Not only on July 2 july 2015, but in recent years," said Pao in post on Reddit, lamenting not communicate well enough with site users about important changes, such as layoffs and broken promises .

Taylor's resignation on Thursday (2 july 2015) has drawn criticism and even an online petition calling for the removal of Ellen Pao. The wrath of users can be summed up by 160,000 signatures to a petition calling, in addition to a protest by the Reddit moderators down approximately 300 panel discussions, known as subreddits.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Reddit was released in 2005 and became one of the most visited sites on the Internet with over 160 million unique monthly users.

Reddit is one of the most popular Internet forums, a classic that has survived several crises to remain a worldwide reference, the famous place to meet their supporters to discuss issues of all kinds on the web the President of the United States was presented with the typical "ask whatever they want" ... the truth is that the Internet would not be the same without Reddit, but that does not mean all are flowers for the famous forum.

Things are quite moved and strained in the last two weeks, tension began with the dismissal of Victoria Taylor, a key member of the platform and precisely coordinator of the category "ask anything." The response from the community and famous forum members themselves were swift, moderators of large communities went to private forums so as a protest against the decision, a way of claiming quite painful, but the complaints did not stop and each day seemed more tense than the last.

The case has been growing with each passing day as a snowball and yesterday its CEO, Ellen Pao, apparently could not stand the pressure and stepped down as CEO in the hands of Steve Huffman, founder and CEO of Original the company, but did not disappear completely from Reddit, will continue as an advisor and directors this year.

Now comes the difficult task for Huffman, it should give reassurance to the community of followers and members that feed and moderate their content, because without them, Reddit will be no more than "a forum filled with spam without grace" would be re- square one and losing so many years of work managed to win.
