The new LEAGOO Alfa 1 smartphone has certainly caught my attention. When I checked out the range of smartphones offered by LEAGOO they offer a diverse range of sizes and specifications. With the Alfa 1 you get a really svelte looking device, you will love the classic looks and be even more impressed with the performance.
It offers a 5.5-inch IPD HD display which is wrapped with either a black, white or rose gold finish to the rear. On the inside you will find a 1.3GHz quad core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. The rear facing camera captures 13 megapixel photos and uses a Sony sensor to good effect. To keep things running, it also houses a powerful 3,000mAh battery. All this is achieved in a smartphone that is just 7.9mm thick. Pricing is very reasonable too, you can see more of the LEAGOO Alfa 1 and pick one up for yourself on the links below.
LEAGOO make some great smartphones, including their recently launched Elite 5. Available in a range of colours, it sports a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280x720. The processor is a quad core 1.0GHz offering which should keep things ticking over at a nice speed.
We all like to take a lot of photos and videos nowadays, so it is nice to see an 8 megapixel front facing camera and an impressive 13 megapixel camera on that back, which uses a Sony sensor and is also capable of capturing Full HD video at 30fps. Most impressive is the 4,000mAh battery which should give all-day battery life, potentially lasting well into the second day.
You can find out more on about the Elite 5 here.
The LEAGOO Elite 5 is available in a range of colours and can be purchased here.

Samsung appear to have done it again with their new Galaxy S7, continuing to cut the gap between themselves and Apple's iPhone as the most popular mobile phone on the market when their latest smartphone hits the shelves on March 11. When it comes to Android phones, nobody quite does it like Samsung, and the Galaxy S7 has already been a hit for a host of reasons, from its camera to its memory slot. Both the S7 and the S7 Edge, the slimmer version of the phone, are being tipped to challenge the iPhone 6 at the top of the best selling charts over the next few months, and it's hard to find any real fault in this new release from Samsung.
People want a lot more from their phones than ever before. Whether it's creating high-quality videos for YouTube, checking the latest football scores with ESPN, booking a flight with Skyscanner or any number of modern uses for smartphones, people need their phones to capable of more functions than ever before.
Having placed a lot of emphasis on gamers, with some exciting developments in the pipeline for virtual reality, the S7 is a lot more than just a phone. And for those gaming fans who have an interest in online casinos, whether it’s playing pokies with 32Red or competing in poker tournaments, this smartphone is more than capable of juggling everything a gamer could need to stay on top of all the action.
But as well as offering users all the latest apps and features, the public want to know the more traditionally important functions of a phone are as important as those new innovations. So, what are the main things we need to know about Samsung's latest product.
Camera: The most obvious improvement with the S7 has to be its camera. With a clear focus on low-light settings, Samsung have reduced the camera from 16 to 12 megapixels, albeit it using bigger pixels that allow 56 percent more light - something that has clearly worked.Boasting a f/1.7 aperture with a rearranged sensor layout for quicker focus speeds, the Galaxy S7 camera could well be one of the most complete on the market. From its colour capture, to its lightning quick shutter speed, if you're only going to get hyped about one aspect of Samsung's latest design, it has to be its camera.
Water Resistant: While there was a lot to like about the Galaxy S6, the fact it wasn't water resistant didn't go down well with those that had become used to it. With an impressive IP68 rating, the S7 can survive a drop in five foot of water for up to time scale of up half an hour. It might not be advised to take the new Galaxy with you on your next scuba diving session, but the fact the S7 is water resistant does make bath-time a little less nervous.
24-Hour Display: One long-standing problem when it comes to smartphones has been the quest to provide 24-hour information on a lock-screen display without milking the battery. Samsung appear to have solved this with their energy-efficient AMOLED display and Snapdragon 820 processor, which means the 'Always On' feature can show the time, calendar and notifications on the screen around-the-clock. It might not be the biggest task to check the time without having to unlock your phone, but this is yet another welcome little touch from Samsung that make this phone so impressive.
Gaming: As well as being able to download your favourite sports and betting apps, such as 32Red or UNIBET, Samsung have placed particular focus on both gaming and virtual reality. When it comes to gaming, Samsung have created TouchWiz, a customised version of Android that comes complete with its own hub. This brilliant feature allows the user to shoot video or voice calls and text into small icons, meaning you don't have to lose your place in whatever game you're playing just to send a call from your Gran to voicemail.
The Edge won’t frustrate you....as much: The launch of the Edge on the S6 certainly caught the attention of a lot of people, but then it definitely failed to maintain that attention due to a number of reasons. But rather than cut their losses on the feature - allowing users to swipe to favourite apps from the side of your phone, Samsung have upped it a level, adding more panels and even allowing third-party developers to get involved. So, if you're regularly emailing the same person, you can customise your Edge so that a shortcut will automatically open the email with the recipient’s details already included.
Aside from these nice and very welcome features, the real strength from the Galaxy S7 comes from the fact that it isn't a million miles away from the S6 - which was such a hit when it came out last year.
Since most brands are now making the move to mobile and nearly everyone out there has an app these days, it's difficult to be surprised by what you can do with a simple app. Are we losing our sense of wonder when it comes to technology, or are we simply running out of ideas? The answer is a resounding no on both counts. We're simply drowning under the proliferation of new apps. So much so, that it's almost difficult for news of the truly innovative ones to get through. Don't worry though - independent tech blogs like this one and doing their best to get news of the best new apps to you, the general public, despite the tide of mediocre ones. Here are some examples of surprising and inspiring things you can do with apps, to help restore your tech lust.
Look at the stars
Great astronomy apps have been around for a while, but Night Sky Lite is one that comes with a whole community of astronomy enthusiasts itching to tell you about the best places to view the stars. Make use of the detailed stargazing conditions maps and a World Traveller mode which lets you view the night's sky from anywhere in the world. Or, just use the app for its main function: point it at the night's sky and get an amazing overlay of all the constellations, stars and even satellites you encounter. Real astronomy geeks should supplement Night Sky with Nasa's free app, which keeps you in the loop about space missions, news and countdowns to launches as well as their Space Images app which lets you view the latest images of black holes, solar flares and stars being born.
Win money, with retro games
Bingo is just one example of a pastime that's enjoying something of a renaissance due to the wonders of tech. It wasn't always cool - your gran would have shuffled down to the local bingo hall not so long ago to meet up with her friends and enjoy this simple pleasure. But things have changed. Bingo has been taken away from the dusty old games halls and it's enjoying a renewed popularity thanks to its new home: the mobile. With some impressive cash prizes on offer and a new platform to do it on, Bingo is now soaring back to popularity amongst hipsters, housewives and businessmen alike. This hugely accessible game can be found on apps like the one made by 32Red Bingo, which are available widely on Android and iOS.
Control your desktop remotely
Mobile apps are increasingly being used for managing other business operations remotely. And that means the ability to control your desktop PC remotely. This opens up a host of new possibilities for those who manage their businesses on the go. There are a few different apps out there that can do the job, but until they've stayed largely hidden from the mainstream. However, the burgeoning trend towards working remotely has put them in the spotlight recently. Chrome Remote Desktop is one such app that, in combination with the companion app for your desktop, makes it possible for you to whizz around your desktop from the comfort of your local cafe or even your bed. Just make sure you don't tell your boss you have it, or sick days are going to be filled with a lot more than playing 32Red games!
Invest on the stock market
Investing on the stock market is something a lot of people dream of doing and it can be a fantastic way to increase your net worth. The problem is, few people have the time or the resources to get started. That's all about to change with the arrival of stock market apps like Stash, which allows you to set yourself up with the touch of a button. Choose your investment type from a range of simple options: "I believe"(based on the causes the stocks support), "I want" (based on what you want to achieve), "I like"(those you've experienced). You can choose to invest as little as $5 at a time and there are lots of useful guides and glossaries that beginners can make use of.
What are your favourite things to do with an app? And what apps have you encountered recently that have revived your tech lust? Leave a comment below.
Whilst we are all aware of the amazing possibilities offered by our smartphones, most people don't take full advantage of the great range of apps that are currently out there.
But with over 700 apps being developed each day, it can present an overwhelming choice to the modern gadget fan. So here's a quick run-down of some of the must-have apps that you might have missed out on.
Whilst we may all be aware of headline-dominating social media apps such as Facebook and Twitter, there are many other communication apps that can offer some eye-opening possibilities.
If you're looking to share some personal thoughts amongst friends anonymously, then the Whisper app is great fun. Rather than traditional social media sites that invariably result in people aiming to fit in with their peers, this app can provide some surprising yet entertaining discussions between you and your friends.
The digital revolution has completely transformed the way in which we keep ourselves entertained. Now you can watch entire films on your phone thanks to streaming sites such as Netflix, or even listen to radio stations from across the globe in real-time thanks to apps like Simple Radio.
Gaming has also been completely transformed through smartphone technology. There's even been a boom in online casino sites such as LadyLucks who offer some lucrative slots games via their user-friendly app which can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
There has also be a revolution in online shopping experiences with major retailers such as Amazon providing their own apps which allow for a much easier way in which to browse and purchase products. And new apps such as Wanelo allow its eleven million users to share and rate their shopping experiences in a social way that adds a much greater sense of fun and discovery in browsing the huge range of products available in the new online domain.
Whilst we can all enjoy the powers offered by our smartphones' apps, most of these apps are reliant upon a decent Wi-Fi signal to work properly. Thankfully the We-Fi app provides the world's most comprehensive list of internet hotspots, so that even if you're out and about, you can still take full advantage of the amazing possibilities presented from the power of your mobile device. And once you've found a hotspot, the Hotspotio app even allows you to simply share the Wi-Fi connection amongst your friends.

For those reading assignments, download Stanza. If you are required to read some of the classics this app has more than 30,000 to choose from, all free. It’s a great app for required reading or just catching up on a good book.
Your professors talk quickly and you don’t write quite that fast so it’s hard to keep up. Evernote is an app that lets you type and synchronise notes, voice memos, photos from your iPhone directly to the web. You don’t have to worry about missing something, forgetting your notebook or losing your notes, it can all be accessed from the app or the Evernote website.

With this app you can create free flashcards or download already-made cards to study with. Share them between groups and with syncing, you can always pick up where you left off no matter which device you use.
One of the worst parts about writing term papers and essays is the bibliography. You’ve spent a lot of time on gruelling research and the worst part is writing out your references. With EasyBib you simply scan the barcode of the book you’ve used and watch as the app creates bibliography magic.
Going back to school doesn’t have to be expensive or stressful. The iPhone has a way of simplifying lives and tasks and even assignments. These school apps are guaranteed to take some of the load off while keeping you up to date and on top of upcoming assignments.
