To Buy or Not To Buy a 4K / UHD TV

If you are considering buying a new television soon, then you are in good company. Thousands of millions of TV purchases are made every year, yet shopping for a new set can be cumbersome, indeed.

Lenovo Vibe Z K910 Review

[Update in March 2015] After using the Lenovo Vibe Z for over a year now, I want to update the readers on what happened after this full year of usage. Battery wise, now it takes longer to charge the battery to 100%, 4+ hours and increasing. The phone used to last more than 2 days on full charge, now it can’t complete a day and a half of normal use. The screen is not as responsive as it used to be. The overall speed is less now, because of the updates that came out after its release. Still, this phone has served me well.

The Lenovo Vibe Z K910 is a smartphone (or cell phone for our American readers) from Chinese electronics giant Lenovo. The phone was released in late 2013 and at the time of writing those lines it lists for around $549.99 (or 1600 AED in Dubai, United Arab Emirates). It weighs 145.2 grams, or about 5 ounces, and is 149.1 mm (5.87 inches) in length, 77 mm (3.03 inches) in width, and 7.9 mm (0.31 inches) in height. Although it’s considered a BIG size phone, it uses 2 micro SIM cards.
