It’s very rare that we see something different from the smartphone space these days. Now, don’t get me wrong. Smartphones are awesome right now.
But when it comes to design, you can put some of these sides by side and you can’t even tell the difference. I don’t know about you but sometimes miss innovations.
I miss the factor. When you first see something. So today I partnered with ZTE to show you one of the most unique Android phones that I’ve seen in a long time.
This is the Axon M, a smartphone with not just one, but two displays. First, let me show you what inside the box.
And by the way, stick around until the end of the article.
There’s a little surprise for you. I want you to try this out for yourself. It’s pretty awesome. First, you get the phone itself.
Then you get some paperwork and some warranty stuff. You get some headphones, which is nice to see included in the box. A power break, a USB type C cord, and a SIM removal tool. And a micro USP to USGBC adapter. Let me show you what makes this phone so unique.
The axon end is foldable. So it looks like a regular smartphone. But when you open it, there are two displays. So when you fold it out. Now the two 5.2 inch, 10 ATP displays turn into one large 6.75-inch display. So now you can use extended mode and have more of a tablet experience.
There is a midsection in the way, though, but it’s caught nonetheless can do this with your smartphone.
There are some different dual-screen modes that you can access right from the navigation bar. I like to split-screen mode. I can see my desktop and my apps at the same time.
And what I like is that I can run two separate apps side by side. This is awesome. So if I want to be on Twitter and Facebook at the same time, I can do that. I can go crazy if I want to or more practical for me.
I can check my email, respond to comments, all kinds of stuff. This is awesome. One of the most that I didn’t think was going to be useful is the MIRA mode. And if you’ve ever wanted to share the article with and you to share the same screen, you have to get a little closer.
It gets a little uncomfortable, but with the X on M, There is a dedicated button on the side that has two functions. If you double-tap it, click, opens the camera or if you long-press it, it brings up the TV mode.
You can choose what app is launched in the TV mode menu, including direct TV now or YouTube. But I have mine set to Netflix since I asked my media app of choice. The sound on this thing is legit. It’s got, dual speakers.
There’s one on the bottom and one on the earpiece. There’s Dolby Atmos support and there’s a dedicated audio chipset with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.
So if you want to know what it sounds like this is Danny. Phones are just getting better and better and you can get free.
Sounds pretty good. This is perfect for my kids. They can watch the same thing while sitting across from each other and not fight. They can be cool.
So this phone already wins on that side. Parents. You know what I’m talking about. Gaming could be a possibility on this phone. Let’s say that you’re playing something like a battlefield or you’re playing a multiplayer game that shares the same screen.
You could probably hook up a Bluetooth controller to this.
The possibilities are pretty crazy. And there is something kind of cool about playing a game in this extended mode.
Even with this split in the middle, the gameplay is smooth, by the way, with some rates. The bill quality on this is very nice. It’s Gorilla Glass five on the front and back with a frame. The hinge is very satisfying.
It’s nice to know that no matter where you go, you always have a built-in kickstand for your phone.
And, if you buy this phone, you’ll end up getting into the passport program where you’re going to get a warranty for two years, where phones you only get one year.
Let’s take a closer look at the X on M. This is being powered by the Snapdragon 820 one chipset with four gigabytes of RAM 64 gigs of internal storage with a micro SD card slot.
There’s a 301080 power battery and there’s a fingerprint scanner on the power button on the side. It’s a little recess, though, which is kind of weird, but its works. No problems there.
And you can see there’s only one camera on this phone, but that’s OK because you’re going to get the same quality from your cell fees that you would get in the main sensor.
So taking 20-megapixel selfies is kind of crazy. And here’s an example.
If you’re wondering how this works and if you want to take pictures, that’s not a selfie. The screen just flips to the other side. Here are a few camera samples that I took this week. Let me know what you think.
The Exon M can shoot for a video and has a manual mode to dial in that perfect shot.
If you’ve ever used an Android phone before, the software is very familiar. It’s running a version of Android 7.1 at this time.
ZTE stated that they are dedicated to the updates, including an update to Android Auriel. There are a few concerns that I have about this device. And even though it’s really nicely built and has Gorilla Glass on the front and back, it is glass on both sides.
So we have to see what durability is going to be like there.
There are a few software quirks and there is that bezzle down the middle and some people not like that. But what I’m excited about is the potential of the axon end.
And one other form factors in devices that may come after this. I can’t wait to see if the factor is going to succeed and it’s received.
I think it’s always hard for a company to take risks and come out there with something unconventional in this market, in this space. So even though I don’t think this is for everyone, I do commend ZTE for bringing out a product like this.
Your opinion is different than mine. So I want to give chance to try out the accent in me. And ZTE partnered up to give one of these away.
So what I want to do for this giveaway is something a little bit different.
Take it to Twitter. So the tweet that’s going to make this article live is going to be in the description section below. Find that tweet retweeted and favorite it and then comment on that. And let me know what gets you excited about the X on M.
And what is your favorite feature and how are you going to use it in your daily life?
And we’re going to pick a winner from that thread. So it’s really easy to enter. Make sure you do that now. And thank you for the support and thank you for watching guys.
Samsung Galaxy A72 Full Review/Cover By Arsal
You should know that Samsung is committed to delivering 3 major OS updates and 4 years of security patches, so the phone should have good longevity at the moment. The A. 72 sports Andrew Levin with.
When you Y. 3.one on top though there aren’t many differences between when you Y. 3.now in 2.5. The default lock screen shortcuts are now monochrome, and the lock screen has a wellbeing widget so you can see how much time you spend on your phone. I’m wary of seeing that information constantly, I digress.
The Y. also has more simplified always-on display settings in comparison to before it though there is no shortage of actual options.
When you pull down the notification, it now covers the entire screen underneath. From there, you can add a quick toggle directly by the plus button instead of hunting 3 options on the menu. There are more refined multimedia controls to found right below the quick toggles.
And want to see what it’s about. Thanks to android 11, you’ll have a better permissions endpoint.
You’ll find bubbles as an extension of the conversion feature. The settings menu has had a design change. Researchers are shown bubbles instead of a list, and you can now search for settings by using hashtags which saves you from hunting endlessly through the menu.
Other than that, you’ll find Simpson classic edge panels Bixby and the game launcher. Sadly, there’s no Sam’s index for the mid-range, you can get some functionality from building to windows feature.
The galaxy A. 72 has a quad camera. It has a 64-megapixel camera with yes an 8-megapixel telephoto camera yes. I need a 3 time soon, a 12-megapixel ultra camera, and a 5 megapixel Nikon camera during the day shots are dependable.
But not spectacular. and we like the lively colors. If you zoom in on the token right. There’s a little noise, and plenty of detail colors are often more relaxed than on the primary camera.
You can zoom in further, and if you zoom in 10 times, you still have usable shots. There are some over-sharpening artifacts though you’ll see more of them the further in your zoom. The authority mark captures stills for the class. The photos are nice colors here were relaxed than on the primary camera.
And we’re closer to what the token code shared. Software distortion correction works. and whole, it’s worth using unless you’re after that barrel distortion looking particular.
Low photos are above average for the class. Perhaps the camera scene optimizer would trigger an auto night mode on the 3 cameras.
So we got perfect low light photos are the prominent campus noise is kept at bay better than on the A. 52 in the colors are pretty good.
But another Granger’s whiter than most, and the highlight rendition was good turning on the dedicated night mode doesn’t improve anything on the contrary. It takes a longer time to take a photo, and the images are cropped 12 megapixels.
So the field of view is not wide, the highlights are clipped compared to the automotive overall. We would recommend you stick to the auto mode for low-light shots.
Zoom camera holds up in the late 2. It was a lot better than cropping in. You’ll see good detail and sharpness there. A night mode helps a lot here. 0 No further, and the quality nose dives especially.
If you shoot anything beyond 10 times, zoom, but that’s understandable. Finally, the old red produced a decent shot for its class, thanks to the auto night mode. We captured some lovely low-light images with these details, saturated colors, and a dynamic range.
Portraits are okay but far from perfect the subject’s abrasion and background blur or done, but we had issues with focus. Hardly the faces came out and focused, nonhuman subjects tack sharp. Marker shots are impressive for the class. The focus plane is wide and forgiving, and photos came out detailed.
So if these are taking with a 32-megapixel camera and the control, they have quality and have plenty of detail and not too much choice though there’s no autofocus, the camera had a forgiving.
The A. 72 can shoot footage up to 4 K. at 30 FPS on all of its cameras besides the macro one, of course, but its taking with the primary camera was balanced and had mature processing there’s plenty of detail and the broad enough dynamic range.
We didn’t see much noise, and everything looks sharp. They try to head a bit narrower dynamic range but still look quite good again. The short had colors than the meat snapper.
It’s had great detail at 4 K. the number Grange was good, so is the level of detail overall performance for a mid-range telephoto.
Stabilization works in all 3 cameras at full HD though the primary camera has, yes, so it has some stabilization already still.
The super study mode is a bit of a step up there. You have to decide if it’s worth the crop in the field of view. The A. 72 is a unique phone in the pack mid-range.
