April Gadget Reviews Roundup 2014

April Gadget Reviews Roundup 2014

We’re done with another month folks and that means we have a new round of gadgets that have been reviewed and tested. This includes the Samsung Galaxy S5, Oppo N1, and the Sony PlayStation 4. Have a look at our gadget reviews for the month of April.

Gionee Elife E7


The Gionee Elife E7 takes what already is a great smartphone and makes it better in terms of hardware, software improvements, feel, camera features and more. However, that comes in with a higher price to pay at Php24,500, and whether that is justifiable is up to you and your needs.



The OPPO N1 has a lot of good things to it. Good design and build quality, one-of-a-kind camera, a feature rich custom Android-based OS all packed in a nice, large full HD display. If LTE connectivity weren’t an issue, the OPPO N1 is a phablet to consider.

Samsung Galaxy S5


The Galaxy S5 is definitely bigger, faster and meaner than any of its predecessors. Samsung has refined its custom UI to make look remotely different from Android and they’ve done it pretty well. The loads of features and functions are a mixed bag of both gimmicky and practical use.

Moga Pro Power Controller



Just like what was advertised, the Moga Pro Power did indeed transform our Android devices into “mobile gaming systems with its precision controls and console-style comfort.” The controller certainly makes gaming on your Android device more addictive than usual. In fact, what used to be minutes of casual gaming turned into a couple of hours of daily hardcore play.

Sony PlayStation 4

Sony PlayStation 4 review YugaTech Philippines

The Sony PlayStation 4 improves from its predecessor with its slim build, powerful hardware, detailed graphics, and responsive UI. It’s not without flaws though as it heats up easily, couldn’t play media files, and PSN is currently not supported in the country. But if the PlayStation has always been your console-of-choice, the 4 is definitely the best one to get.

ASUS Zenbook UX302LA

ASUS Zenbook UX302LA 1

The ASUS Zenbook UX302LA has definitely got the looks. Using it is like riding a beautiful car with people couldn’t help but take quick glances at it. Performance is also satisfactory, although we would recommend it for casual use and nothing too heavy (sorry gamers and video editors). Yes, the glossy display panel was bad news but we could easily let that go if we’ll talk about the Ultrabook as a whole. Touchscreen is responsive, but we didn’t need it as much in order for us to efficiently navigate through.

JBL Pulse


The JBL Pulse is definitely one of the best portable speakers out there. It packs a great build, portable body, long battery life, good set of wireless functions, visually enticing customizable light themes, and very good sound quality. On the downside, it is expensive at Php8,995.
