Galaxy S6 Edge :: Positive Erfahrungen
Mon, Apr 20th 2015 4:38a   Volker Weber
Seit ein paar Tagen nutze ich ausschließlich das neue Galaxy S6 Edge und ich bin sehr zufrieden damit. So wie es aktuell ausschaut, bleibt das auch so, da mich Apple noch nicht mit einer Uhr bedroht. ;-) Die Kamera macht einfach erstaunlich gute Bilder.

289 € kostet der neue BlackBerry Leap, der in den nächsten Wochen geliefert wird. Für knapp 40 € weniger bekommt man nun einen Z30. Das ist ein höherwertiges Gerät mit den gleichen Specs wie der Leap. Etwas schnellere CPU, ALOLED statt LCD, höherwertiges Gehäuse.

Please help me out here. My understanding is that Verse will cost the same as SmartCloud Notes. But even there pricing isn't entirely clear to me. Can you enlighten me?... - truncated for aggregators like Planet Lotus

BlackBerry PR is AWOL

BlackBerry had a good agency, which was scrapped the day after the Classic launched. No other agency has come forward to introduce itself. I... - truncated for aggregators like Planet Lotus

Jan-Keno Janssen hingegen kann sich für die Apple Watch nicht erwärmen: Für ihn gibt es keine bessere Smartwatch als die minimalistische Pebble. Ich mag sie auch. Aber ob sie wirklich besser ist, das will ich erst beurteilen, wenn ich die... - truncated for aggregators like Planet Lotus
