Today we’re looking at a trio of protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. These cases come courtesy of Tudia, an accessories firm founded in Minnesota in 2013. We have two different models to show you — the Tamm in black (right in the picture above) and the Merge in metallic grey and mint (centre and left, respectively). Let’s get right into it!
We’ll be accompanied on this brief review with our new favourite friend, a mysterious craft used by a Doctor of some renown.
You can see that each case possesses a two-tone design; the Tamm has a carbon fibre effect on the top and bottom while the Merge has a simpler black [...]
In many ways, my wife and I are opposites. I love the smell of coffee, but my wife prefers flowers. I use a Samsung phone, but she uses an iPhone. However, we still find ways to come together, and this week it’s been testing weird smartphone cases — specifically, a Samsung case made from coffee and an iPhone case made from flowers. How cool is that?
Both cases are part of MMORE’s Organika collection, which includes Samsung and iPhone cases made from real organic materials. Right now, MMORE have five options: alpine hay, jasmine, skeleton leaves (spooky), coffee and roses.
Each polyurethane case has a rear cover that’s [...]
SSDs are awesome, and so is USB-C. What could be better than a combination of the two? That’s the idea behind the Samsung T3, a portable SSD that operates over the USB 3.1 standard for extremely file transfers and access times. We liked the formula with the initial Samsung T1, so let’s see what new features the T3 brings to the table!
M.2 solid state drives are normally used in laptops, but they’re also small enough that you can also use them as really incredibly fast and spacious USB drives. Most USB drives use slower eMMC memory, so moving to a proper SSD provides a big step up in terms of transfer and access speeds. Startech.com have produced a M.2 enclosure, letting you take an M.2 SSD on the go. Let’s see how well it works!
Today we’re looking at the Samsung T1, a business-class SSD designed for portability. The T1 brings SSD speeds to a form factor somewhere between a USB flash drive and a full-size SSD, with USB 3.0 allowing that speed advantage to actually be realised. Let’s take a look at how it performs.
I recently bought a Samsung 840 EVO on Amazon – a great deal at £90 for a 250GB solid state drive, or so I thought. A few days later, I was offered the chance to review the 850 EVO, and of course I couldn’t pass that up – especially as I now had the perfect means to see exactly what’s changed in the new generation.
The 850 Evo promises improved speeds and aggressive pricing thanks to its vertically stacked (3D) NAND. Today, we’ll find out if it’s a true improvement over the 840 series, or just marketing hype. Let’s go.
