Nexus 7 2013 – Poetic Revolution – Is it worth it?

The Poetic Revolution is a very good case overall bu like all others it has flaws. At about $25 – $30 it gives almost the same protection as an Otterbox case. The water-resistant dust-resistant proector on the front is very thick affecting picture quality touch response and has a nasty rainbow affect to it. We have had this case for almost 5 months now and the experience is just OK. The stand broke about 4 months in after a light fall but i was able to fix it after some difficulty. The case itself protects my tablet well and and has prevented my Nexus 7 from turning into a $250 paper-weight. Other than the small flaws it nicely grips in the hand and looks very nice in the hand. It adds a little bulk to the device that is a small price to pay for some solid protection. The stands present great angles for typing and watching movies. the case overall has a nice touch to it. We prefer it to my Asus Travel Case any day which we will review soon.

Update : Though the repaired stand did not last very long Poetic were more than happy shipping me a replacement at no charge without taking the broken one back.


Moga Pocket – Bluetooth Game Controller

The Moga Pocket is a game controller for all android 2.3+ devices. It connects via blutooth so no hasle of wires. The controller is fun to use and a good accessory to turn your phone into a legit portable game device. It is useful and perfect for free time. On the other hand the button are very clicky and the game selection is not very large. The Moga Pivot app is not to user friendly and gives trouble when connecting to the controller. A good solution which allows the controller to control the interface and work with emulators/ non-Pivot apps is the Moga Universal Driver. The controller can be bought from Moga or Amazon. We would recommend upgrading to the more advance models for the addition D-Pad and Charge Capability(select models only).

"Can not connect to camera"

Have any of you suffered from this annoying error and just hate it. Well here is simple fix.
1. Go to Settings : Apps : All : Camera.
2. Force stop the app.
3. Clear all data
4. Restart your Nexus 7
….If this did not work try again. If you still have a problem try to boot to safe mode by holding tap and holding “power” on the power menu. You may also try a factory reset. If all else fails I think you should claim your Nexus 7 in warranty as it is probably a hardware fault!

Have you maintained your device lately(All-In-One Toolbox)?

Any smart phone or tablet from today’s time will need maintenance. This maintenance requires multiple steps. First you must clear the cache. Next, you must clean your SD card  removing thumbnails, etc. Lastly, clean history such as downloads, browser, and clipboard, Market, Gmail, etc. Doing all of this manually could be difficult hence we recommend an app called All-One-Toolbox  available on the play store for free. This will do all of these easily and give you a bunch of other useful features.

Wacom Bamboo Stylus

So, we finally received the Wacom Bamboo Stylus last week and is working great. The stylus is a great one and I just love it. This stylus is a great one and also has an awesome design. A stylish black body with a silver top and bottom! The best feature is that if you tear or wear out the tip you can simply change it. At the end of the day you got a great stylus with a smashing design!

A must have App – MX Player

So one thing about Android is that the default video player has a good interface but can not play HD videos such as mkv,etc. So if you are a of fan of movies in HD a must have app is the MX Player available on the Play Store for free. With a nice clean interface, useful settings, variety of formats and minimal ads it is the ideal app to watch movies. It is also a music player. If you are like us and find Play Music insufficient in terms of features, you may like this app. So download now for free from the Play Store.

Nexus 7 Review

The Nexus 7
So we finally got our nexus 7 last week and I have been using it quite heavily. The results have been good. It is super fast in terms of the UI. Now lets talk about the gaming performance. We have played some heavy games such as GTA 3, Nova 3, Real Racing 3, and Dead Trigger 1 and 2 and we can safely these games worked like a charm. In terms of the design, this portable tablet is light weight and super thin. We have had great fun using this tablet. It is a powerful tablet with a great price. The 16GB model at just $229 and 32GB at $269 is perfect for any who wants a great tablet at a great price.
Now lets talk about the display. The 1200×1980(323ppi) IPS display is just wonderful. Whether you are watching a movie,playing a game or just reading an eBook this screen will not disappoint you. Another thing we loved about this tablet is the form factor. It is great for watching a movie. Again this tablet has a competitive edge in terms of terms of the software. It has the buttery smooth stock android. The cameras are nothing too great, just your everyday tablet cameras. Battery life is quite average. We were down to 20% in just over 7 hours with a the display on for four hours(gaming) and WiFi and GPS on the entire time. So all in all this is a great tablet, amazing specs, and  a super low price tag to go along with it. I would recommend this for any gamer who wants a tablet or some one with work needs or just as a tablet for the family.

Top 3 Reasons Why Android is better than iOS

2. Variety
There a wide array of different android phones out there. Phones built to last, built to be cheap, built to be premium or built for emerging markets. In the world of android you can choose from different flagships or budget models, each with it’s own strong points.
3. Usefulness
Android allows a user to do many more tasks than iOS. It allows more video formats. It allows the integration of different apps into the operating system. A user choose an alternate as the default app to almost every stock app.

These are my 3 favorite advantages of Android over iOS

Asus Official Travel Cover Nexus 7 2013

This case is not at all what it was hyped to be. Though the colors are good but the case it self is not. It stains very easily and seems quite flimsy. For $20 it should at least have a magnet to hold the flap in place. The flap when turned back for usage tends to pull the case off. Yet the case seem durable and tends protect the tablet well. It is a good case but definitely not worth the price its sold at.
