Ockel Sirius A review and comparison with Viotek Pipo 7 inch mini PC

Ockel Sirius A review

I have one of those Chinese devices (7" VIOTEK, AKA PIPO), and it is poorly made, though I really like the device, and I even use it to run Android plus Windows 10, at the same time, using AMIDuOS having it really makes clear that the app gap is really a non-issue for Windows phones in the future, since AMIDuOS even runs 3D games without much performance loss.

What did Nokia did and Microsoft did not

They didn’t do something of value. And worse is they didn’t even try. I understand that Nadella wasn’t happy about the acquisition, but still after a 7 billion dollar deal and another couple billion in integration costs they could have at least tried to do something with it.

Galaxy Note 7 will flop

Galaxy Note 7 will flop

Samsung really blew it with the Galaxy Note 7 that is currently its flagship. Things I have experience with my Note 7’s (Yes plural):

Consistent Keyboard Lag
Dropped frame-rates across the UI
App opening delays
Scrolling lag….Very bad scrolling lag, especially with Hangouts
Browsing lag and stutter
UI Jumpiness, so bad to the point I’m clicking on an app on a home screen I didn’t even change to yet (if that makes sense). Not a specific measure, but my Nexus 6P rarely ever has any of the problems listed above and overall performance obliterates the Note 7.

I hate Galaxy Note 7: Reasons not to buy Samsung Note 7

Here are the reasons why I am not going to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 7. I’m feeling really underwhelmed with this one. That battery is irritatingly small, though, and of course, you can’t just replace or upgrade it. One of the perks of a removable battery is that you can slap some 10,000mAh+ monstrosity in there, if you don’t mind the added thickness – it’s your decision to make.

Windows 10 Mobile with x86 CPU can beat iPhone and Android

The HP Elite X3’s greatest innovation is HP Workspace, but that is simply a work around for the x86 app issue, and from reports is somewhat laggy and bandwidth dependent. Having a native x86 processor would make it a much more acceptable device. It’s time for Microsoft to kill Windows Mobile and give me a device that runs Windows 10. They can limit the ability to run win32 applications when not connected to a larger screen and they can use the Windows Mobile Interface when in phone mode. No need to call it a phone, time to go futuristic, should call it the Surface Communicator and pay the makers or Star Trek a boat load of money to introduce it in the next Star Trek film. To deal with battery life they can keep the screen res to 1920×1080 and instead of giving me a keyboard cover attachment, give me a battery cover attachment. This way if i want more battery life I can get the attachment that doubles as a cover.

Reasons for Microsoft not reaching 1 billion devices by 2018

1. They have to blame themselves. The decision to stop selling Lumias in Brazil was theirs. If I am not wrong, Brazil was the second or third country that sold more Lumias. They did the same with other countries, and released Lumia 550, Lumia 650 and the Lumia 950, but they left a hole in the middle of this family without a mid end like Lumia 830 or a little better than this. They wanted to help their partners, but their partners are not present in every country affected by their decision.

HP Elite X3 Lapdock vs Lumia Continuum setup

I am very interested in this HP Elite X3 Lapdock setup. Running a Lumia 950 daily and a 950XL on insider. The UWP Continuum landscape just keeps getting better. I am a little put of by the weight of the lapdock if it is indeed a kilo (2.2lbs). That’s a bit heavier than I’d like, but I need to consider it is also my external battery for my phone, along with all that sign in convenience you reference. Are they really ‘advertising’ IP67? That second number, 7, indicates Liquid ingress protection: Immersion, up to 1 m depth, Test duration: 30 minutes. That would certainly imply surviving dropping in the toilet. For an $800 phone, you bet I’m reaching in if I think it will survive.
