ZTE has officially launched the ZTE V5 Max which is part of its line of V5 series, budget-oriented smartphones. Although not a top-tier phone, we can see how the whole market is rising by taking a look at some of the specs for this new device. The ZTE V5 Max comes with a 5.5-inch display running at 1280 x 720 pixels being run by a Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor.
I'm thinking the update will be minor, with a few CPU speed bumps and storage updates (incl. Fusion and SSD options for the base model), but will include 8 GB RAM base. Also 802.11ac and maybe Thunderbolt 2.
The Core i7-3960X is a six-core processor that can handle 12 simultaneous processor threads; it does that via Intels Hyper-Threading Technology, which enables each core of the processor to work on two threads at once. The chip's base clock speed is 3.3GHz, 100MHz slower than its Core i7-990X predecessor.
Despite this model being a "budget minded" tablet, I've found so many wonderful uses for it that I couldn't possibly list them all. It's a rather feature packed and expandable device that not only serves well as a browsing tablet and PIM device but this low end version also does alright on some games that surprised me.
Sprint’s prepaid wireless service, Boost Mobile, announced today that you can pick up the ZTE Speed for $100 off contract. The ZTE Speed doesn’t offer much in terms of specs, but getting Android 4.4 KitKat on a budget phone definitely isn’t something to scoff at.
The ZTE Speed offers a 4.5-inch LCD screen and sports a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor.
HTC announced a budget-minded Android 2.1 phone for European and Asian markets. Available in the third quarter, the HTC Wildfire will offer a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen, a five-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD card slot, and a new app-sharing feature, says the company....
My wife has a samsung ACE 2 from 2 years ago, and Samsung just confirmed that its getting a Kit Kat update along with other models over a year old !
I wonder if Asus will follow suite with their relatively new Memo pad HD7. apparently Kit Kat needs only 512Mb of RAM and it has speed advantages compared to previous releases...
I'm testing a dated but high-end processor with an ASUS budget motherboard: Z77-A.
The BIOS lacks the additional "fine tuning" feature of "Extra Voltage for Turbo." So manual voltage adjustments are limited to vOffset in "offset mode." There is no way to decrease PLL Voltage: it's either going to be 1.8V with "Auto" or 1.8 + 10%.
