Suggested December 2023 Poll: Neo N003 Vs Iocean X7 Vs Umi X2 Vs Jiayu G4

iOcean X7, JiaYu G4, UMI X2 and Neo N003, these are just some of the phones we have been waiting for and release dates are just a matter of weeks away for each phone. With this in mind, we go to think which of these great MTK phones would you buy?

UMi X2

Why you should buy the UMi X2?

Why you shouldn’t buy the UMi X2?

iOcean X7

If everything goes according to plan, the iOcean X7 Youth will be available for pre-order from tomorrow (6th March) and at 999 Yuan ($160) it’s a feature packed bargain phone!

Why you should buy the iOcean X7

Both versions of the iOcean X7 feature a stylish Oppo Find 5 inspired body, 5-inch 1920 x 1080 full HD display, 1.2Ghz MTK6589 quad-core processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The Youth version packs just 1GB RAM, an 8 mega-pixel rear camera and 2000mAh battery while the Premium model has 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 3000mAh battery.

Why you should buy the iOcean X7?

In our opinion the X7 is the best looking phone of the bunch, especially in white, but black looks stunning too. At 999 Yuan ($160) the Youth model should be enough phone for most people, and we the premium version should only cost a little extra.

Why you shouldn’t buy the iOcean X7?

We still don’t known how much the top of the range version of the X7 will cost, and the Youth model with 2000mAh battery, may not be able to last a full day on a single charge with that full HD display. iOcean is also one of the smaller lesser known brands even here in China, so quality and support could be an issue.

Neo N003

Neo have been quiet and keeping their cards much closer to their chest. We haven’t seen many leaked images of the N003, and hardware details have only just started to come to light.

Why you should buy the Neo N003?

Looking at what you get for the price, the Neo N003 is the cheapest phone here. It offers a 5-inch display, quad-core processor and 13 mega-pixel rear censor. The only differences between the youth model and premium version are the RAM and built-in storage. Both phones get a 3000mAh battery which should drive the 720HD display a great deal longer than the 1080HD panels on other phones.

Why you shouldn’t buy the Neo N003?

JiaYu G4

Not everyone is excited in the prospect of carrying around a 5-inch display, and not everyone feels 1080HD is appropriate for a mobile phone, this is where the JiaYu G4 comes in.

Why you should buy the JiaYu G4?

Great design, good specification, the option to upgrade the battery on the youth model to the 3000mAh unit from the premium, possibly the best battery life of all the phones here, great community and support, plus an English language site!

As for hardware the youth version of the G4 will get 1GB RAM, 8GB of built-in memory and 1850mAh battery, while the premium will have 2GB RAM, 32GB of memory and 3000mAh battery. Both phones have the same 4.7-inch 720HD display, 13 mega-pixel camera and Xiaomi Mi2 styling.

Which phone are you going to buy?

With such great specs and low pricing, it’s hard to know which phone to buy, but I have to say that we have moved away from lusting after the UMi X2, and are now beginning to eye up the Neo N003 and iOcean X7. Both phones are cheaper and have similar specs and if 1080HD isn’t a priority then the Neo N003 could be the best choice for you.

The G4 is still up there too, and will likely offer better battery life than the other phones due to the low-resolution and smaller screen, plus pricing is good too!

So what do you choose the full on hardware of the UMi X2, the combination of price, style and value of the iOcean X7, the lower resolution and lower cost of the N003, or the smaller form factor of the JiaYu G4?

Moto G4 Vs Moto G4 Plus Comparison Review

Our Verdict

It’s slightly unusual for a ‘plus’ model of a phone not to have a larger screen, and with the Moto G4 having largely the same specs as the G4 Plus, but an extra £30 for a fingerprint scanner and a better camera doesn’t seem bad at all. It’s a bit confusing but hopefully we’ve cleared things up for you so you can decide which Moto G4 is right for you.

Since 2013, Motorola has updated its Moto G phone annually at the least, and on 17 May it announced the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. The Moto G range represents Motorola’s mid-range Android smartphone offering, and they are pretty decent handsets for the price – under £200.

Check out our  review of the new Moto G4, and the G4 Plus, plus our review of last year’s Moto G 2023 which is now a bargain at £149.

There have been rumours of the new Moto G phones for a while, but now they are both announced, we take a look at how they compare. Will you go for the Moto G4 or the Moto G4 Plus?

Moto G vs Moto G4 Plus: Price

Firstly, there is a price difference. In the UK, the Moto G4 will retail at £159 from Tesco Mobile, Argos and Amazon. It’s £169 from Motorola including customisation.

The Moto G4 Plus will be available exclusively in the UK from Amazon for £199 –  for the base 16GB model with 2GB RAM. From the Moto Maker it starts at £229 for the 32GB model.

Here’s our buying guide and run down of the best budget smartphones of 2023.

Moto G vs Moto G4 Plus: Key specifications and features What’s the same?


You might expect the G4 Plus to have a larger screen, but it doesn’t. The ‘Plus’ model is in fact a beefed up version of the standard G4; both phones have a reasonably large 5.5-inch full HD display.

Processing power and battery

Both the G4 and the G4 Plus ship with the same processor, a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor. They similarly both have an Adreno 405 GPU, a 3,000mAh battery with TurboPower fast-charging, as well as a 5Mp front-facing camera. However, only the G4 Plus will ship with a TurboPower charger.

Read on for the differences between the handsets.

What’s different?


The differences between the Moto G4 and the G4 Plus lie deeper. While the G4 has a 13Mp camera, the G4 Plus boosts up to a 16Mp snapper.

RAM and storage

The Moto G4 will be available with 16- or 32GB storage and 2GB RAM. Meanwhile, the G4 Plus comes with either 32- or 64GB of internal storage (or 16GB if you buy from retailers like Amazon) with the larger capacity coming with double the amount of memory, 4GB of RAM.

All G4 and G4 Plus models also have a Micro-SD card slot for expandable memory up to 128GB.

Fingerprint scanner

Out of the two, it’s only the Moto G4 Plus that has a fingerprint scanner which sits below the screen in similar fashion to devices like the Galaxy S7. So if you want that extra security and convenience, you won’t want to go for the Moto G4.

Intel Vs. Apple: Strategic Vs. Tactical

Intel and Apple are very different companies, yet both produced some recent news that suggests a possible comparison. Last week Intel had their industry analyst meeting, and this week Tim Cook announced what amounts to the second and third major change from Steve Jobs’ policy.

Contrasting the two companies isn’t to showcase competitive strengths or weaknesses against each other. The firms are simply too different from one another (and Apple is an Intel customer). Instead, the point is to showcase policies that on Intel’s side are strategic and Apple’s tactical.

Intel’s event showcased as it as a firm thinking about where they will be in 5 or more years while Apple appears increasingly focused on stock value in real time. It is the strategic vs. the tactical. And since I think far too many companies focus far too much on the tactical, I’d like to explore this topic this week.

Of the companies that exist in the technology space, IBM is by far the most strategic. They have been around for over a century and the firm was designed by two generations of Watsons to be eternal.

The company’s historic near failure was the result of a string of executives that increasingly focused on quarterly results in exchange for strategic positions. It first give up the firm’s successful, and prophetic, model of computing as a service (they initially had software free on hardware they leased). And eventually it lost the desktop, largely as a result of validating Microsoft and then crippling the PC Jr. in order to protect the margins of their higher end products.

Currently IBM’s major initiatives involve the concept of Smarter Planet and they encompass the world with no apparent end date. The planet can never be smart enough, and this is the epitome of strategic.

The Intel Industry Analyst meetings are confidential so I can share only my impressions, not the content. However, more than I can remember since Andy Grove ran the company, last week Intel delivered a strategic message.

They also showcased a string of strategic investments in areas like security. This is likely where the future wars for processors will be fought. And the company once again emphasized strategic purchases like MacAfee, which are designed to assure that future.

Intel recognized that it is weak in tablets and smartphones and have shifted substantial resources to address these shortcomings. But over all of there was a growing sense of “better together,” where having Intel at all parts of a solution – from desktops and handhelds to networking and servers and services – that ensures that the future for Intel will be bright.

Finally, while they didn’t speak of this, surrounding the event were moves in the background by Intel’s media group. An organization focused on bringing Intel into the living room to create a new media service that could provide a bandwidth-optimized rich HD/3D home experience currently unmatched.

In short, at Intel, it was all about the long-term future and ensuring Intel’s would be bright. Paul Otellini is earning his salary and has emerged from the shadow of legendary CEO Andy Grove by doing what IBM’s Sam Palmisano did, and making sure he will leaving Intel far better than he found it.

This week Tim Cook announced two more changes from Steve Jobs’s policy. Apple will institute a stock buyback program and pay dividends. His prior change was to reinstitute Apple’s charitable giving program, something that Steve Jobs had killed when he came back. Jobs felt that if investors wanted to be philanthropic they would do so with their own money. They didn’t invest in firms like Apple to do that for them. Given Apple’s success it is hard to argue that Steve wasn’t right.

Cook historically did the jobs that Steve didn’t want to do, so while he was the best of those inside the firm he wasn’t really groomed to replace Steve. And if Apple has a grooming program to replace Cook it isn’t being disclosed.

As a result Apple is increasingly looking tactical, largely living off Jobs’s legacy. But changes are tied to improving the firm’s image with things like philanthropy or increasing the perceived value of its stock -– not in investing in the company’s future.

In the end that may make the new Apple seem much more like the old Apple.

Corporations are designed to be eternal but few actually work to ensure this immortality. There are a handful of firms that were around when IBM reached its 50-year anniversary that were around at IBM’s birth. And 50 years later that handful has dropped to a few fingers.

That’s thousands of avoidable failures of companies and millions of jobs lost because executives couldn’t see beyond the tactical and build for the future. Intel is the only company in technology that has a top cultural anthropologist, Genevieve Bell, running a lab analyzing the future to ensure Intel can anticipate it.

They showcase that a younger firm can learn from an older one in order to survive. Apple’s star is burning brighter but at greater risk of burning out because it hasn’t learned this lesson yet. And the technology graveyard is full of Digitals, Compaqs, Osbornes, Commodores, Netscapes, Suns, Palms and other firms that simply couldn’t figure out that if you don’t make sure you are planning for tomorrow, you’ll likely not be around when tomorrow comes.

Google Keep Vs. Evernote Vs. Bear: Which Note

There’s no doubt apps like Google Keep, Evernote, and Bear are each terrific at offering some unique traits. Yet, even though each app has its strengths, they also have their drawbacks depending on a person’s unique needs and goals with a note-taking app. Let’s go through what each app offers and why Keep, Evernote, or Bear could be ideal for you.

For Quick Notes: Keep

If you want to take quick notes on the fly that are super-easy to access everywhere else, then Google Keep is for you. On your mobile, you can set up a widget so a Keep note – such as a checklist – is always open and easy to add to. The fact Keep plays nice with the rest of the Google ecosystem, like Gmail, is also a major plus.

Although the app is speedy and fluid in adding a basic note, the offerings for organizing notes – essentially only possible via labels, color-coding notes and pinning them to the top of your note list – are far more minimal in comparison to the robust offerings of Evernote and Bear.

On this basis, Keep is ideal for someone who needs to take a lot of quick notes and do so rapidly but does not need to sort through them or hold onto them for a long time.

For Seamless Organizing: Evernote

For many people, Evernote will be the first app that comes to mind when thinking about note-taking. There’s a good reason for it, too. By many measures, Evernote’s app pioneered the contemporary note-taking system we see today in Keep and Bear. Although the app is not as quick as Keep, it remains easy just the same to take a new note, create a smartphone widget, and set up checklists.

Where Evernote goes above and beyond is the ease in which seamless storage of notes can occur. Creating new notebooks to collate and store notes is a breeze. The key drawback to Evernote is the cost: beyond the basic freemium version, a subscription starts at $9.99 a month – and there’s a big gap between that sum, Bear’s cost of $1.49 monthly (after a free one-week trial), and Keep being totally free.

Accordingly, Evernote is ideal for those wanting more depth than Keep but who aren’t quite ready to jump in the deep end with Bear.

For an In-Depth Offering: Bear

For first-time users, Bear can seem intimidating, especially for those unfamiliar with the markdown language. But beyond the learning curve, it can be a joy to use, making it easy to take new notes, categorize them, and link them together using Bear’s hashtag system. This system makes it a breeze to not only search for old notes but link them together. Over time these links help create your own “personal Wikipedia” in Bear, allowing you to easy navigate through all your notes and immediately see how they relate to one another via the hashtag links.

One drawback of Bear is its (current) Apple-exclusive identity. It is known the team is working on a web app, but it appears from the app’s FAQ that they shall retain a focus on Apple-only devices going forward and that this web app will sync with iCloud. So even if non-Apple users can access some basic functionality of Bear on PC via the web app, it’s unlikely to offer a comparable experience just as iCloud on Apple devices is far and away better than the (limited) experience of iCloud that can be had on PC via the iCloud web app.

For anyone with Apple devices who desires a powerful and comprehensive note-taking app, Bear is A+.

Taking Note of the Possibilities and Pitfalls

It’s necessary to note it’s possible to use multiple note-taking apps in your day to day. At the same time, it’s important to remember doing so can quickly complicate the process substantially. This is because – as distinct from other sets of apps like productivity ones that you can utilize together but use separately for different purposes – it can become more of a challenge to take notes that’ll be easy to keep track of and retrieve later when using multiple apps at once.

Note-taking apps are at their best when they help streamline and simplify the process of taking notes. So proceed cautiously before setting up a system that could become counterproductive if it makes it harder to keep track of all your files.

Into Vs. In To

Into and in to are pronounced the same, but they have different grammatical functions.

In to is a combination of two separate words: the prepositions “in” and “to.” The words should remain separate when the sense is separate. For example, in the phrase “call in to see you,” the phrasal verb “call in” is separate from the infinitive verb phrase “to see you.”

Examples: Into in a sentence Examples: In to in a sentence

Una turned her hobby into a business. She turned the report in to her boss.

The principal stormed into the classroom.

Amanda is really into stamp collecting.

Everyone chipped in to pay for gas.

My grandmother tunes in to the news at 6 p.m. every day.

How to use “into”

Into is a preposition used to indicate that something is moving inside of (or colliding with) something else. It’s also used to refer to mathematical division.

Examples: How to use intoThe protagonist snuck into the castle to warn the prince.

How to use “in to”

In and to are two separate words. They can end up beside each other when “in” is part of a phrasal verb and “to” is part of an infinitive verb phrase. In these instances, it’s wrong to use “into.”

Examples: How to use in to

Amir dropped into borrow a book.


dropped in

to borrow a book


The thief broke into steal the gems.

Jpg Vs. Png Vs. Gif: The Differences Between Image File Formats

A rose by any other name may smell as sweet, as Shakespeare says in Romeo and Juliet, but if you take a picture of that rose and save it as a JPEG with high compression, you may experience a decline in image quality. It’s no problem, though, since you also have the option to use PNG, TIFF, GIF, SVG, or even a new format like HEIC or WebP. Some of those formats would look great on the Capulet family newsletter, while others would fit in better on Romeo’s blog, so decoding these file types can be pretty useful.

Lossy vs. Lossless

Every image format can be categorized as either “lossy” or “lossless,” and these terms mostly explain themselves. Lossy compression cuts down on file sizes by permanently deleting information about a file, making it smaller but also degrading the quality. Lossless compression just rearranges the data in such a way that it takes up less space but can be packed and unpacked (or unzipped!) without any damage to the file.

Raster vs. Vector

When you think “image format,” you’re probably thinking of a raster. It. has nothing to do with Bob Marley – it just means that the file is essentially a grid of colored pixels that make a picture. JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, and most other photo files are rasters. The only information they have is what color the pixels are, so enlarging or stretching them will generally just result in a more pixelated image.

Vectors, though, are designed to be scaled forever. SWF, EPS, and PDF files store images not as pixels, but as math equations that can be rendered as points and lines. The image can get as big or as small as you need without taking a quality hit, but these extensions are not as common around the Web since vectors are not as readily compatible as raster images.

Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) – Lossy Raster

JPEG-2000 is the updated version that has some improvements over the original, but it’s never really taken off, so you’re unlikely to see this format many places.

Great for: putting photos on the Web, saving and sending small image sizes, general use, printing out pictures.

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) – Lossless Raster

This format has become the go-to for high-quality web graphics, especially if you need a transparent background. PNG was originally designed as a GIF alternative, but it supports way more colors and is more flexible about transparency settings. The file size is generally bigger than either GIF or JPEG, but PNG preserves quality better and is more flexible,

You may also run across PNG-8 and PNG-24 in some programs. These will still export as normal PNGs, but PNG-8 only supports 256 colors and doesn’t allow partial transparency, netting you a smaller file size than the more full-featured PNG-24.

Great for: web graphics, high-quality photos where size isn’t an issue, transparency.

Graphical Interchange Format (GIF) – Lossless Raster

The predecessor to PNG, the GIF format is now most famous for enabling the short video loops that you can’t stop watching on social media. The debate over whether to pronounce it as “gif” or “jif” is fairly heated, but if you want to make both sides angry, try pronouncing it as “jeff.”

GIFs only support 256 colors, which makes them a poor choice for high-quality photos, but their compression is excellent, so it can downsize simple images without a huge quality hit. Pixels can also be made transparent, but must be either on or off, not in-between.

Great for: simple graphics, animations, icons.

Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) – Lossless Raster

You may not have run into a TIFF personally, but if you’re into photography or work much with print media, you may recognize them as the large, but high-quality, format often favored by publishers.  Also, no one argues about the pronunciation.

Great for: printing high-quality photos, scanning high-quality images, anything where size isn’t an issue.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) – Vector

If you’ve ever tried to save an image off the Internet and instead gotten the “save as a webpage” option, you may have seen an SVG. These are possibly the most widely-supported vector graphics out there, and their ability to maintain good quality and scalability at low file sizes makes them popular for logos, site graphics, and anywhere else that a vector would come in handy.

Great for: business graphics, scalable graphics, logos.

New Formats High Efficiency Image Format

HEIF is essentially JPEG but with higher quality and smaller file sizes. This is now the default picture format on iOS 11 and later.


WebP is Google’s format, and it does pretty much everything: better compression than JPEG, better animations than GIF, and transparency on par with PNG. It’s supported by several browsers and is currently being used by YouTube, Facebook, and a few other sites if you visit them using a supported browser.

Why So Many Formats?

It’s unlikely that there will ever be one format to rule them all, since different fields have different image needs. General internet browsers don’t really need to think beyond JPEG and PNG (and maybe WebP and HEIC in the future), but for business and publishing applications, having options like TIFF and SVG makes life easier.

And, if you haven’t already, you should think about choosing a side in the GIF debate before the format disappears. Be part of history.
