How to free up storage space on Android Phone or Tablet

We will teach you all possible ways to free space in Android in an effective way. Take full advantage of your phone even though it has a reduced storage.

Mobile phones with less than 16GB internal storage capacity are disappearing, but you may still find some that have 8GB capacity. We do not recommend any of them: if you are looking for a new smartphone, try not to notice any that has less than 32GB of storage. This should be the minimum required to have a good experience, even though it will not be a certain guarantee. A gift, a bad decision… We will now teach you how to effectively free space in Android.

Do not install applications that free RAM or save Battery.

They are not worth it. Adding to the fact that the majority adds even more consumption, almost all of these apps take more permissions than needed and have advertisement. Eliminating RAM that is not being used, Cache Memory… The system will continuously renovate resources when needed, which is why you won’t do much with these apps.

ASUS surprises Lenovo with a 14-inch notebook lighter than its ThinkPad Carbon

As simple and elegant in its design as silent in its presentation, this ASUS laptop encloses many more interesting things than others that have made a lot more noise at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. Many of us like Laptops like this, discreet and light, without forgetting the minimum power to be able to perform everyday activities without problems.

Best Home Wireless Router 2017

As of today, it is still likely to find users who, despite of having high-speed internet contracts, keep complaining about not having a good experience with their internet connection, a fact that, for the majority of the cases, points directly to an evident and plain culprit, we are referring to the cheap router device that the internet operators use to give for free, every time a new user signs a contract.

The router plays a fundamental part every time we attempt to have a good internet connection experience, unfortunately, yet the majority of families and enterprises settle for these basic models that the internet providers give them for free, this may be due to lack of information, or not wanting to invest in a better option, which for the majority of the cases who chose to change the device resulted in a very good and profitable decision. Not too much of a useful help finally, sometimes it pays to change, they say.

What are we trying to say with regards to all this? It is very simple, you should know that it will be completely worthless having a 100 Mbps if you are using the very basic router that your internet provider has given to you, because not only will you not be able to enjoy an optimal experience, but you will also be paying for a service you are not getting, it’s the truth.

We Show You the New Architecture of the Upcoming AMD Radeon Vega

Even though the graphics cards market has been moving quite a lot in the recent year 2016, especially since September until now, with the launch of the new Polaris 10 and 11 graphic cores by AMD Radeon, and the Pascal cores by NVIDIA, the market continues to exploit basically a similar architecture. This is something Radeon Group plans to change with the upcoming Vega graphics cards, which will implement new components within the core that will make them the most powerful and efficient models that AMD has manufactured to date.

The first thing I want to say is that in this article I am only going to talk about the new architecture, given that the graphics cards themselves are scheduled to launch in the first HALF of 2017, So do not expect photos of the graphics cards, given that there are still 3 to 5 months left for these kinds of photos to be released. Anyway, while Polaris 10 and 11 were the last efforts by the AMD to regain ground in the mid-range, I assure you that Vega is 100% designed to be a high-end graphics card.

Best SSD 2017 (SATA, mSATA, M.2)

In the world of hardware, if you want to improve your computer performance, everything goes through choosing a good solid state drive, characterized by a high speed data transfer (up to 10x more than mechanical drives) and minimum information accessing times.

What is an SSD?

SSD stands for Solid State Drive. These are devices that use memories such as flash drives or USB drives, but of a higher quality. They can come in different formats, from typical portable hard drives to small cards that plug into special ports (mSATA or PCIe).

The difference between a hard drive and an SSD is the time it takes to access information and data transfer. On hard drives, the discs are turning all the time and only read information when the head passes through the point where the information is. With SSD memories, it directly accesses the information at any time it wants. The transfer speed of the hard drive depends on the speed of the disc, but is something that can’t be increased lightly, especially in the case of hard drives destined for home users.

Best Monitor for Photo Editing and Photography Comparison (January 2017)

If you want to capture images with the highest possible quality then each and every one of the elements, which become part of the photographer’s digital lab, has to be in top notch form or at least, of the highest quality we could afford. The monitor is one of the devices that we should examine most closely.

When we buy a computer to use it to edit pictures, we should always be looking for the best processor with RAM overflow and all kinds of ports. With some luck, if it comes with a free monitor, we often thank the seller for the unbelievable fortune that we have just come upon. It may also come with lots of inches…

Well, I dare to say that we were wrong. We should not settle for any monitor! It’s no use to have the best camera in the world if your monitor can’t rise to the occasion. Monitor is equally as important as the optical camera. I always say, it’s better to spend less on a camera while investing more on the best lens and monitor we could afford.
