Lenovo's new TAB 2 Android tablets are both under $200

22

Lenovo has introduced the TAB 2 A10-70 and TAB 2 A8 Android tablets for the budget crowd.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off two new tablets at Mobile World Congress that aim to offer great value for your money. The TAB 2 A10, starting at $199, is Lenovo's 10-inch model with a full HD display, a soundbar built into the back using some new Dolby Atmos speaker technology, and ten hours of battery life. The A10 is powered by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and has 2 GB of RAM. It's 8.9 mm thin and 509 grams, which is pretty good, but unfortunately runs Android 4.4 (for now). There's an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and it will be available in blue or white color schemes when it launches in April.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hands-on preview

550

The Galaxy S5 was hardly a flop. Tens of millions have sold since its introduction last year and you’d be hard-pressed not to see one in use on the street in any populous city around the world. But despite its success relative to other devices in the market, the prevailing feeling about the GS5 is that it didn’t live up to the expectations of a flagship smartphone in 2014. Those shoes were instead filled by the Note 4 launched later in the year, with its superior materials, more refined design and improved camera performance.

Samsung, naturally, is hoping to put the Galaxy S series back on people’s radar as a top device, and it’s doing so by starting afresh with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Though it numerically follows the GS5, the Galaxy S6 bears little resemblance to the previous model, and marks a pretty significant change in the way Samsung designs phones. At the same time, the S6 edge picks up the fun parts of the Galaxy Note Edge and leaves behind the poor software experience.

There’s a brand new design philosophy in play with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, starting with the radical hardware change and flowing into a more considered software experience. These are the phones that Samsung’s hoping will change the perception of its devices in 2015 — let us show you what they’re all about.
