Allview Impera i – dual SIM Windows Phone 8.1

From the first moment I heard about the new Impera line from Allview I was intrigued… “Allview with Windows Phone? Interesting!” But what really got my attention were the hardware specs.

More important, however, is the fact [...]

I must tell you that even I got confused when I found out that you can have a M.2 SSD based on a SATA controller. I knew that M.2 was the next generation high performance port allowing PCI-Express storage, so you can understand why this information was [...]

One Plus One Review – The 2014 flagship killer

One Plus One   Here at LAB501 we always reserved a very special place for “that kind of phones”, no matter under which category they fell under. Sometimes we discuss products that would go unseen if somebody wouldn’t test them thoroughly (Acer CloudMobile S500 for instance) other times we test smartphones that get everybody’s attention (Xiaomi Mi3 for example). Sometimes we review products that are [...]

After all we have been using the old chap for more then a year to test graphic cards and stuff [...]
