Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice EditionSamsung does it again! They recently released a batman themed edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  This release was timed perfectly together with the recent successful launch of the Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice film.  Such a superb marketing move by the Korean company will surely garner more support for avid fans of the Batman franchise.  The said company can be recalled to have released a similar product last year which was an Iron Man themed unit of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which was a limited edition and was only distributed in Hong Kong, China and Korea.

This product was created in cooperation with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment set to celebrate the third year of the Android game application Injustice: Gods Among Us.  The said game was a worldwide hit which allows players to handle featured characters such as superman, wonder woman, the joker and other famous personalities of the DC Universe. This particular set was designed to completely engage users in the game especially with its add on virtual reality devices and features that we shall discuss shortly.

Phone Features

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: Injustice edition comes in a deep black box that is marked with a bat symbol and the logo of Samsung on the top part.  Upon opening and seeing the unit, one can see that the phone itself is set on a black and gold color scheme, just like batman’s suit.  On its back is a bat sign printed in golden hue and the back camera are also line with gold edgings as well.

The set comes with a phone casing that resembles the bat suit in the movie padded and bulky which gives the uses a feel of the protection it affords Bruce Wayne when he dons the mask of his alter ego.  A golden throwing batarang comes also into boot that somehow encourages the users that they too can fight crime, the batman way by playing with the game, appealing more to those with collector mindsets in the market and will surely give them a run for their cash.

In view of improving the entertainment experience of the users, the set includes a Game VR that further immerses the user to the game environment of Injustice: Gods Among Us. Together with the Game VR comes game credits as well as Occulus VR credits that are all designed to make users jump in anticipation of this action packed Android application.

Compared to the Iron Man themed edition, Samsung hinted that this limited edition is not as limited as the company has plans to release them in more markets later on after its initial distribution in regions such as China, Singapore, Korea and Latin America.  According to Samsung, they look to offering the phone set in other geographical regions such as the United States, Australia and Europe but that is still a pending plan following its release on June 13, 2016.  Unit prices are still not fixed but with the gears included in the box, it would probably a little bit higher than your standard issue Samsung Galaxy S7 commonly found in the market.

Samsung’s Executive Vice President of Global Marketing for IT and Mobile, Younghee Lee stated that this release was a testament to Samsung’s commitment to the Injustice: Gods Among Us users and an effort to provide a superb and highly satisfying mobile gaming experience to their consumers.  With that, this edition will surely cause some people to lose some sleeping hours in the process.

iPad Speakers
Do you have an annoying roommate you don’t want to listen to? Well if putting your earphones in while your roommate is trying to talk to you didn’t send the message loud and clear (like the audio of the speakers below), some iPad speakers will fix that. iPad speakers are also great if you like music.

These speakers produce very high quality sound and are very loud for speakers that are portable. They are a very affordable price and get the job done. If you have an iPad it is most likely because you like the portability of it, so having a pair of speakers which aren’t portable doesn’t make sense. Especially when you can get such great speakers like this that are portable. To get the speakers click here.

Tips for Choosing a Tablet

After Apple introduced the iPad early in 2010, there is no denying that the tablet computer has come a long way. The increase in popularity of both the iPad and iPad2 over the years has seen a tremendous growth in the tablet computer market- with scores of different tablet models from different manufacturers crowding the market.

Tablet Selection

While the fast-growing tablet market has benefited consumers by offering more options at significantly lower prices, it has also made the selection of the right tablet a bit more difficult- the choices are overwhelming with each model offering improved features.

Now that you need a tablet, you will obviously require one that fits your needs and your budget. But how do you find the right one? Read on to find out the top tips for choosing a tablet.

Think About How You Intend To Use It

Before you select just any model out there, you need to ask yourself a few questions.

How do you plan to use it? Do you want it to replace your PC or simply want a device to browse the web, check e-mail, watch movies, or stream content? Do you intend to use it primarily for work, personal use or school? Will it replace your laptop?

Your answer to these questions will help you determine every single feature you want in a tablet- features that will suit your specific needs.

Be Sure To Compare Apps and Operating Systems

The most popular Operating Systems are Windows, Android, and the Apple IOS.

This again goes to how you plan to use the tablet. For example, if you intend to use it for creating or manipulating documents, a Windows tablet may be an excellent choice. Tablets powered by iOS and Android will only use apps to help perform the same tasks (creation of Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, and Excel spreadsheets).

In regards to the apps, choose a tablet with apps that fit your needs.

The Features Matter

Of course, the features of a tablet matters when it comes to selecting one. With the right OS in mind, you will want to compare the feature of tablets from different manufacturers so as to see how each one performs.

Compare various specs such as storage capacity, Wi-Fi access or 3G & 4G, battery life, processor speed, display, camera, and other accessories.

Size and Design

Most manufacturers are offering their models in different sizes; from 10inches, 7inches, all the way to the latest and most popular size, 8inches.

Do you want a tablet that you can easily slip in your purse or backpack or want one that is big in size?

How about the design? Does it feel great and comfortable in your hands? Do you want one that is thick on the edges or one that is thin and light? Are the edges sharp or rugged (of course you don’t want to choose one with sharp corners as they will dig into your palms)? Is it light and compact enough for your kids to handle it without fear of them dropping it?

Size and design matter when choosing a tablet, which is why you should shop around before settling for one.

Screen Size and Resolution

Considering that the screen of a tablet functions both as a display and a user-interface, selecting the right screen size is crucial.

Large screens make it much easier to view the displayed content while small-sized screens are great for portability.

As for the resolution, more pixels mean a sharper image with better quality.

The Price Matters

Different tablet models come with different prices. If you’ve set a budget, be sure to compare the prices offered- keeping in mind the features and performance levels of each model.

Besides the actual cost of the tablet, you might want to consider the price of additional accessories or components that you might require to use with the device.

Considering that choosing the right tablet is not an easy task, be sure to incorporate these tips to purchase your dream model.
