So which one is the best smartphone? List of smartphones for every need





A question that everybody deals with before purchasing a smartphone is “Which one is the best smartphone?” And you have to think twice, even three times before choosing the right device for you. If you are going to spend some money, well, spend them wisely.

However, buying a smartphone in 2015 is not that hard. In the past, choosing a proper phone could become a headache. Battery life, size, a proper camera, these were only a couple of things everybody would think about before buying a phone. Nowadays, every single smartphone that comes out checks everything on the list. Big screen, a camera that takes decent photos, a battery that lasts the entire day, browsing the Internet with fast LTE connectivity, browsing through apps with a high-speed processor and so on.

The problem is another one: all smartphones are the best. Some of them though, “pretend” to be the best. So we’ve made a list of a couple of smartphones that provide something people crave for. This is the bar we set.

The best overall: Nexus 6P


 Everybody says that this smartphone made by Google and Huawei is the best smartphone of 2015. Nexus 6P seems to be the real deal, the smartphone that has been built for everybody. The Nexus 6P fixes everything that was wrong with the last year’s older version, Nexus 6, mainly its gargantuan size. Although it costs $500 dollars, which is really expensive, people believe that this money are properly invested in a very good mobile device. The Nexus 6P includes new hardware like the Android Sensor Hub which turns a battery life into a guaranteed full days worth. The phone is incredibly fast and its design is awesome.

The best small phone: Apple iPhone 6s


Hey, big phones aren’t meant for everybody. Even though Google made its kind of small phone, its 5.2-inch Nexus 5x, the iPhone continues to be the best smartphone for those who are looking for a small device. With this year’s Apple iPhone 6s, you will definitely get the best smartphone Apple has ever created. With this new mobile device, you’ll get 4K video capability, 3D Touch, Live Photos, and a better processor wrapped in an aluminium frame.

The best big smartphone: Samsung Galaxy Note 5


Every person I asked which smartphone is the biggest one, most of them told me that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is very big. Google’s smartphone Nexus 6P is big too, but when it comes to Samsung, we talk about a whole different “big”. This is the fifth smartphone of the Note series, which tells us the fact that Samsung is aiming to build the best smartphone, the best OS that takes advantage of that big screen real estate and Note 5 seems to be the best so far. It has quite the same look as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and it includes new forward-thinking features. One of them is YouTube live stream which is already incorporated into the camera app. The camera does its job at its finest, taking great photos. If  you are not bothered by the size and by the S pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 would be a great pick for you.

The best for traditionalists: LG G4


This list of the best smartphones always changes in time with other mobile devices that come out on the market. But this one, the LG G4 always remains on the list. It is considered to be a fantastic smartphone from processor, screen to utility. This smartphone appeals to the power users with a removable battery and a microSD storage. It has a complex and awesome camera with an excellent manual mode. For those who like the old way of thinking, this is the proper smartphone for you. Why isn’t the best one though? The UI isn’t as good as the Android Marshmallow on Nexus 6P.

The best phone on a budget: OnePlus 2


If you are on a budget and you don’t want to spend too much money on a phone, than the One Plus 2 would be the best match for you. Since the One Plus 1, this new one has a better processor, a decent camera and even some small hardware improvements (dedicated button to silence the notifications). OnePlus 2 is the first smartphone that ditched Cyanogen for its own operating system called Oxygen. Even though it was built off of Android Lollipop, the OS has some similar features to the Marshmallow, such as customizing quick settings and lite app permissions management. If you are still a bit worried about this new operating system, OnePlus promised that in 2016 the Oxygen will be updated to the new Android OS.

3 Video Games About Women’s Health





Video games have transcended entertainment to become powerful tools for promoting health and wellness. One notable genre in this realm is fitness gaming, exemplified by titles like Hatsune Miku Fit Boxing, which motivates players to engage in physical activity to enhance their fitness levels. Building on this foundation, developers have ventured into women’s health with games designed to raise awareness and empower players to take control of their well-being. Here are 3 video games on women’s health that provide valuable health information and foster a sense of agency to uplift women around the world.

Tampon Run – Menstrual health

Created by Girls Who Code alumnae Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser in 2014, Tampon Run is an old-school 8-bit online game where the main character, Luna, lobs tampons to destroy enemies, who will confiscate the tampons if she lets them pass by. Interestingly, the concept of weaponized tampons is based on a real incident that occurred in 2013, where Texas state troopers confiscated tampons as potential projectiles, but not guns, from visitors observing a vote on abortion restrictions at the Texas State Capitol. The goal of Tampon Run is to destigmatize periods and menstrual products, which, up until recently, have not been properly studied to measure their absorbency, which underscores the need to address menstrual health so that women can get better care.

In between tossing tampons, Luna shares empowering messages about how periods are a natural part of women’s lives and should not be a source of shame or embarrassment. The game is available to play on the Tampon Run website and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store for iOS users.

PCOS Vitality – PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a complex hormonal condition and the leading cause of female infertility that affects approximately 5 to 6 million women in the US, according to the Endocrine Society. Common features of the condition include having irregular menstrual periods, hyperandrogenism, and polycystic ovaries. Additionally, some studies estimate that up to 88% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese. While there are weight loss programs helping women tackle PCOS, focusing on aspects like lifestyle, symptom management, diet, and other tips for how to lose weight with PCOS, the condition itself remains grossly under-researched. For some women, it may take years to confirm that they have PCOS, as there are other disorders that mimic PCOS signs and symptoms that must be excluded.

The lack of research has extended to a lack of awareness among the general population and is what clinicians from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland are trying to address with the 2023 game PCOS Vitality. Essentially a learning tool, the game takes users through a simple obstacle course. As you click toward the finish line, you are asked simple trivia questions about PCOS. The game is free to play on Focus Games’ website.

Bound by Blood – Period poverty

Period poverty refers to the lack of regular access to period products, painkillers, or underwear during a menstrual cycle. In the US, where 16.9 million menstruating women live in poverty, two-thirds cannot afford basic menstrual products. Period poverty has also been associated with mental health issues and urinary tract infections.

Available to play on the website, Bound by Blood was created by Jessica Gates in 2017 and aims to educate players about the reality of period poverty. Users take the character of Beth, a homeless woman who wakes up in her car and realizes that she’s started her period. Players then make a series of choices to try to stay as hygienic as possible in spite of lacking resources such as menstrual products and clean restrooms. There isn’t really a way to “win” the game, and it is instead a peek into the reality of life where period products are inaccessible and how this affects women’s quality of life.

Through these games, players not only gain valuable insights into various aspects of women’s health but also find themselves actively engaged in their own well-being. As developers continue to explore this emerging field, the potential for video games to serve as educational tools and catalysts for change in healthcare remains promising

PS5, PS4 Game Death Stranding Coming Natively to iPhone 15 Pro





PS5 and PS4 console game Death Stranding Director’s Cut is coming natively to the iPhone 15 Pro, demonstrating its power. The entirety of Kojima Productions’ seminal hiking sim, Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Village, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will be available on your phone. Bonkers!

Tech giant: “Continuing Apple’s leadership in smartphone silicon, A17 Pro improves the entire chip, including Apple’s biggest GPU redesign. The new CPU is 10% faster with microarchitectural and design improvements, and the Neural Engine is 2x faster, powering iOS 17 features like autocorrect and Personal Voice.

According to the company, the pro-class GPU is 20% faster and unlocks new experiences with a 6-core design that boosts peak performance and energy efficiency. Hardware-accelerated ray tracing, 4x faster than software-based, gives iPhone 15 Pro smoother graphics and more immersive AR and gaming experiences. The iPhone 15 Pro brings console games to smartphones for the first time.

As with all cutting-edge Apple products, participation is expensive. The iPhone 15 Pro will cost £999/$999 at launch, and the Max model will cost £1,199/$1,199 for a 6.7″ screen. The most basic option only gives you 128GB, so you’ll need more if you want to play Death Stranding on the go.

However, the blurring of standalone consoles and mobile games is fascinating. The success of Genshin Impact, a full-fledged open world, has shown there’s a market for console-like mobile games. It will be interesting to see how Death Stranding performs on this latest iPhone generation.

Launched Redmi Note 12 series: 200MP camera, 210W charging for less than $400





The three phones have similar screens and processors, but they vary in a number of ways.

The Redmi Note series from Xiaomi has historically been the brand’s most well-liked smartphone line, providing excellent value in the entry-level market. The Redmi Note 12 series has now been unveiled by the firm in China.

The Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus are the three phones we truly have this time. A flat 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, a Mediatek Dimensity 1080 5G processor, and a 16MP selfie camera are features shared by all three devices.

They both have a 3.5mm connector, NFC, IR blaster, and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility, among other things. In contrast, there are a few significant variances.

Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition


The Note 12 Discovery Edition of the Redmi Note 12 has a 200MP HPX primary camera (f/1.65, OIS), making it possibly the most striking model. This camera can capture photographs with a resolution of 200MP, 50MP pixels (using four-in-one binning), or 12.5MP (using 16-in-one binning). Additionally, the phone offers a 2MP macro lens and an 8MP ultrawide camera.

The phone is notably different from its stablemates in that it supports 210W wired charging; according to Xiaomi, a full charge can be achieved in just nine minutes. Although you only get a 4,300mAh battery here, this high wattage comes at the expense of battery capacity.

Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus


Thought a 200MP smartphone with a larger battery would be cool? With the Pro Plus model, you get precisely that. The triple back camera system will have the same 200MP+8MP+2MP resolution as the Discovery Edition.

The Pro Plus variant, on the other hand, chooses a 5,000mAh battery and still blazing-fast 120W cable charging. Xiaomi claims that a full charge should be achieved in about 19 minutes.

Redmi Note 12 Pro


Have no interest in megapixels? The Redmi Note 12 Pro, which adds a 50MP IMX766 primary camera (f/1.88, OIS) in addition to the 8MP+2MP duo, fills this need. The Oppo Find X5 Pro and the Asus Zenfone 9 both feature flagship devices with 50MP sensors similar to this one. We therefore have high hopes that it will also produce acceptable image quality on the Note 12 Pro.

The Pro version additionally includes a 5,000mAh battery with 67W wired speeds. A 100% charge should be expected in a still quick 46 minutes.

Pricing and availability for the Redmi Note 12 series
The base 8GB/256GB variant of the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition costs 2,399 yuan (about $332), while the base 6GB/128GB model of the Redmi Note 12 Pro costs 1,699 yuan (about $235). Do you want Pro Plus? The 8GB/256GB variant thus has a starting price of 2,099 yuan (about $290).

Although Xiaomi acknowledged that these phones are currently limited to China, it advised us to “keep tuned” for international announcements. To be fair, the Chinese Redmi Note 11 series was very different from the international variants that debuted a few months later.
