iPhone 6s to double LTE speeds and be more power efficient

Apple has used the “s” after an iPhone’s product name as a representation of additional speed, ever since the old iPhone 3GS. As such we’ve seen the company retain the same design as the existing model, but with added performance benefits. We’re expecting this to be the exact same case with the iPhone 6s, and today we get a major tip of where this will be focused on.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will reportedly use Qualcomm’s new MDM9635M chip, also known as the ‘9X35′ Gobi modem platform. The major benefit with this change when compared to the current “9X25″ chip we see on the iPhone 6, is LTE download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, and placing the iPhone 6s as an LTE Category 6 compatible device. This chip made its debut on the a Korean exclusive variant of the Galaxy S5 last year, which you might remember as the “Prime” variant from our review. Other benefits with this new chip is that it’s built with the 20nm process, which is not only more power efficient, but also allowing for a smaller footprint, and giving Apple some extra space for a larger battery. Combine this with all of the new power-saving features of iOS 9, and this could be the first “s” iPhone lineup that doesn’t suffer from terrible battery over increased performance.

Apple is slated to launch this iPhone refresh later this year. We should learn about more of the changes that Apple plans to bring later, and especially after the recent leaks show us that the hardware design won’t change.

Lumsing Mini 3,000mAh Power Bank review

Lumsing 1

A few qualities that we look for in a power bank are design, functionality, and price. As far as we’re concerned, Lumsing’s quality is top-notch in all three categories compared to the competition. The Lumsing Mini 3,000mAh Power Bank is compact, sleek, and powerful… so let’s see if this one holds up Lumsing collageto the high expectations.

Design

The first thing you’ll notice about this power bank is that it’s very small and sleek. At only 3.77x.86x.86in. and 2.68oz, this thing is tiny. You can very comfortably fit this into a pocket without it being a bother. Also included in the box is a MicroUSB cord that measures about 16in. long, which is a pretty good size considering the size of the device.

We’re not at all saying that this is solely “for women”, by any means, but the power bank does look a little like a tube of lipstick. It is, however, a great piece of hardware that anybody would happy to carry around. The battery pack comes in 5 colors: black, white, pink, orange, and blue. And overall, the design of this power bank is awesome.

Functionality

As for functionality, the device works great. It holds its charge well, charges quickly, and offers accurate battery percentage with the three LED’s on top. What’s more, is that it has a built-in flashlight to offer extra functionality in a pinch.

Should I buy?

Lumsing 5

Lumsing has been known to make some pretty great looking cell phone accessories, and this power bank is no exception. It’s small, sleek, and functional… what more could you ask for? This power bank is perfect for anyone who is looking for a small way to keep their mobile devices charged.

The Lumsing Mini 3,000mAh Power Bank is available on Amazon for $ 13.99 in five colors. Head here to pick one up for yourself!

QiStone+ Wireless Power Bank review

Qi 4

The QiStone+ Wireless Power Bank by Fone Salesmanaims to fix a problem you never knew you had. By eliminating cords (well, sort of), you can now charge your devices wirelessly when you’re out-and-about. With this 4,000mAh external battery pack, you can charge up to two devices at once.

We think the device is just great. But will the price to purchase one change our minds? Find out in our full review below!

Design

The QiStone+ measures 105x72x20mm, which makes it the perfect size to throw in your pocketQi 1. It also weighs 135g, making it light enough to be unnoticed.

The outside is made of a rubber-like plastic that gives the charger a premium feel. it’s not often a product comes around and looks this nice. it’s smooth, grippy, and doesn’t feel like you’re going to drop it when it’s in your hands. There’s a bright blue light on the front left of the device to indicate when a device is charging. The front center portion houses four little green lights to indicate how much charge is remaining. Around back is the MicroUSB port to charge the device, and the USB 2.0 port to charge other devices. There are also four rubber feet on the bottom to ensure that your device doesn’t slip away.

The device has a 4,000mAh battery capacity, which isn’t the most we’ve ever seen in a portable charger. It’s not a small battery, but it will get most phones charged up once or twice.

Functionality

Qi 3The QiStone+ works exactly the way it should. it charges quickly (as long as you have it plugged in), and charges other devices quickly as well. It gives a satisfying high-pitched beep to verify that the device is sitting on the charger properly… something we wish all Qi chargers had.

One thing to think about, though. With a normal power bank (one with a cord), you can still use it when it’s plugged in. With the QiStone+, you’ll likely need to carry around the cord to use it while it’s charging, which is why you would buy this in the first place.

One of the other cool features of the QiStone+ is that if a device is charging wirelessly on it, you can still plug in another device and charge two at once with one of the two included MicroUSB cords. And now on to what I think the is coolest part of the device.

Charge it wirelessly with the KoolPad Qi Wireless Charger

both chargers 1The QiStone+ is Qi compatible as well! If you have an extra Qi charger lying around (we’d recommend the nice KoolPad Wireless Charger), set the device on it, and there you have it. A wireless charger that can charge wirelessly… huh!


What we liked
  • Premium build quality
  • Has the ability to charge wirelessly
  • Small enough to fit in a pocket
What could be improved
  •  The price is a tad high for the battery capacity

Should you buy?

Well, that depends. Do you find yourself annoyed by the fact that you have to carry around a power bank and a cord to connect it to your device? Then yes, you should buy this. But at $ 79.99, it makes it tough to justify buying this over a battery pack with more than double the capacity and a fraction of the price.

I get it. It’s a new idea, and a dang good one. To eliminate the number of cords in my bag is a great thing, but it’s just not worth it to me. Nonetheless, it’s a great piece of hardware that does something really cool and unique, and perhaps it could make your life easier.

Omniphone to help power Neil Young’s PonoMusic

& 4G could well make Pono a viable music service

http://www.lemonrock.com

maclaren – 4G could really aid PonoMusic

It seems that a British specialist music firm, Omnifone, is going to provide a helping hand to a new service being fronted by veteran rock star, Neil Young. Young has recently become the CEO of an outfit calling itself PonoMusic. You’d have thought that the market for digital music was already saturated but – No, the company has just managed to raise a truly impressive $ 6.2 million (£3.6 million) via the crowdfunding web site, Kickstarter. Let’s hope that PonoMusic fares a bit better than another service that Omnifone helped operate – BBM Music. BlackBerry stopped operating BBM Music back in June 2013. The best bit is that PonoMusic agrees with GoMo News’ resident music guru, Mac Maclaren, who’s previously declared that FLAC really is the best digital music format there is.

So, why would Young need any help from a bunch of Brits? Simple, the company has agreements with all the major players in the music industry such as Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI.

And its technology helps stop music tracks being ripped off. Which is essential since Pono (which means righteous in Hawaiian) intends to operate an online service in addition to its iPod rival – the PonoPlayer.

The whole point about Pono is that it aims to let people listen to music in the highest possible audio quality. And as such has picked FLAC [Free Lossless Audio Codec].

GoMo News is proud of the fact that one of this site’s most popular posts is ‘The best audio file format for your smartphone‘ which names FLAC as the bestdigital music format.

We also interviewed MacLaren, head honcho @ Lemonrock for ‘4G could aid musicians using the new Pono music format‘. As he says – 4G could well make Pono a success.

Pono was, of course, supposed to launch in 2013. Now October 2014 is touted as the launch date for the PonoPlayer.

Review: Lumsing 10400mAh Portable Power Bank

Score:
87%

The concept of a portable power bank/emergency charger isn’t new, of course, especially in these days of smartphones with sealed batteries, for which the only emergency option is usually to plug something in via microUSB. The Lumsing 10400mAh option is new and reviewed here – build quality is excellent and – I contend – the value for money utterly unrivalled.

Buy Link | Download / Information Link

Lumsing Portable Power Bank

The unit reviewed is this black one, on Amazon UK, currently retailing at £17.99, though there’s also a white option as well. Build quality is tremendous, though the brushed aluminium effect for the fascia is actually just that, an effect, with the whole unit being plastic. It’s very solid though, with no creaks or worries, and the visual contrast of the gloss body and the mock-aluminium is striking.

Lumsing Portable Power Bank

On the left is a standard microUSB port for charging the Lumsing unit, a process which is best done overnight, since there’s 10400mAh of cells inside to charge up, which will take a while on a typical smartphone wall charger – best not to do this on a laptop USB connection, since it will take around a day!

There’s no wall charger supplied with the Lumsing, which seems fair enough, given the price point, but it does mean that actual recharging times will vary hugely depending on your cable and charger.

Lumsing Portable Power Bank

Supplied with the power bank is a white USB to microUSB cable, which can be used for the aforementioned recharging, or to dispense charge via either of the two outputs (labelled 1A and 2.1A, the latter nominally for a tablet). Interestingly, it seems as if you can both recharge and charge at the same time, i.e. you can have the Lumsing 10400 mAh bank plugged into the wall, being topped up, while simultaneously charging two phones via two other cables. Then, when you want to head out, you grab just the Lumsing and one cable, etc.

Lumsing Portable Power Bank

I only had one issue when testing – one of my Nokias (a Lumia 630) complained at one point that a non-original charger was being used and that charging might be ‘slower’. I doubt that, since it was hooked into the 2.1A output at the time, but you know how manufacturers can be about insisting on original equipment… In every other case, my test devices loved the power bank.

A (now) standard set of LEDs are used to indicate approximate charge, in increments of 25%, plus these animate when recharging – the only button is used to activate the LEDs and to start charging if none is already happening.

Lumsing Portable Power Bank

The usual capacity/efficiency caveats apply, of course. As with any emergency charger, you won’t actually get 10400mAh – you’ll get around 75% of this in terms of actual transferred charge to another device – with the difference mainly being heat lost along the way, in the cable and (mainly) in the two batteries (source and destination).

Still, the capabilty to add 7500mAh to various devices means that this accessory can fully recharge (from empty) a Galaxy Note 3 and a Nokia Lumia 1520 and probably enough over to recharge a Nokia 808 fully as well. Or, in a less geeky scenario, to fully recharge your smartphone (say, a Nokia Lumia 920) around three or four times.

The unique selling point here, other than the slightly unconventional ‘USB hub’ look, is the value for money, being higher capacity and at lower price than anything else I’ve seen on the market. The worry is that corners have been cut in terms of quality, though the high standard of materials used tend to assuage that fear. Of course, it will take months of useage before any long term verdict can be arrived at, but it looks good so far.

The black unit is here, the white one is here. Both are supplied in a ‘recycled cardboard’ box, with a drawstring velvet bag and the aforementioned white charge cable.
