Tweakers & Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre-launch Event

Onlangs konden gebruikers van Tweakers zich, door middel van een poll, opgeven om bij een evenement van Samsung aanwezig te zijn. Daar kon men als eerste de nieuwe Samsung Galaxy S8 en S8+ in levende lijven bewonderen. Voor drie gebruikers was er zelfs de mogelijkheid om een gloednieuwe S8 te winnen.

Ik weet dat dit soort polls veel publiek trekken, maar ik waagde uiteraard mijn kans als smartphone fan. Op vrijdag 7 februari kregen ongeveer 60 gebruikers het goede nieuws in hun mailbox. Helaas zat ik niet bij die random selectie. Wonderbaarlijk genoeg kreeg ik een dag voor het event te lezen dat ik alsnog was geselecteerd om aanwezig te zijn!

Nada en Stephan (ook wel bekend onder Foritain), hebben de hulp ingeschakeld van Pim (pclinde), Herman (Kiswum) en Wesley (Frozen). Deze reviewers zijn voor velen geen onbekenden en door hun krachten te bundelen hopen ze nog meer verschillende reviews van een hoger niveau uit te kunnen brengen. Elke persoon heeft zijn eigen expertise en manier om producten te tonen. Door de verscheidenheid te benadrukken, zullen de productfoto's op dezelfde manier worden getoond, hieraan wordt niets veranderd. De individuele websites zullen op de den duur worden aangepast. Hierdoor zullen de sites van Pim (http://dehardwarerecensent.nl), Wesley (De officiŽle blog van Frozen) en Herman (http://www.kiswum.com), binnenkort worden omgevormd tot een eigen blog of nieuwssite.

Here is a small unboxing/review post about the brand new Xiaomi Redmi 2.

I have been wondering which phone would perform better, the Redmi 1s or the Redmi 2. Although the Snapdragon 410 has a 64bit cpu and is much newer, the Snapdragon 400 is running on a higher frequency.
I'm not able able to purchase a Xiaomi phone directly via their webshop, so I ordered one at ibuygou.com. I have purchased many other products at them and I know that they sell genuine Xiaomi products.

Here are the main differences of the Redmi, Redmi 1s and Redmi 2

UMi has released it's first smartphone in the summer of 2012. After the X1, they released a lot of different models. Here is the list of devices: X1, S1, X1s, X2, Cross C1 (Big Red Bull), X2s, X1Pro, X3, C1 mini and the Zero is released in Q4 2014. All phones are low-end to mid-range models (except for the UMi Zero).
The goal of UMi: We choose the best solution for a smart phone at affordable price so everyone is able to use our device. Our goal is making sure every customer enjoys our devices and its high value for the money..
You don't need to expect UMi to compete directly with the high end phones of Xiaomi, Samsung or Sony. They want to create phones with the best price in their range and software that is built for the customer. They aim to bring their phone worldwide and they have close connections with a lot of different webshops.

This review is based on the UMi C1 mini, UMi prefers to call this phone: 2014 QUAD CORE KILLER
