AL­CA­TEL ONE TOUCH SCRIBE HD

CLEO (Malaysia) - - TECH GIRL -

LOOK­ING FOR A SMART­PHONE WITH A DIF­FER­ENCE? CHECK OUT THE LAT­EST IN THE MAR­KET – AL­CA­TEL’S ONE TOUCH SCRIBE HD. WE RECKON IT’LL GIVE COM­PETI­TORS A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY.

THE GOOD STUFF: This 5-inch HD screen phone runs on An­droid Jelly Bean 4.2 and comes pre-in­stalled with a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions. It’s got a user-friendly in­ter­face and starts up within an im­pres­sive 10 sec­onds. Want a sep­a­rate num­ber for work but don’t want to tote two phones around? The One Touch Scribe HD is just right with its du­al­sim­card fea­ture. What we like most about this phone? That for all its fea­tures, which is on par with other smart­phones, it is priced rea­son­ably. THE DOWN­SIDE: The charg­ing port is on the left side of the screen. So if you have a flip-phone cover that opens from right to left, it would be an in­con­ve­nience. With an 8-megapixel cam­era, the One Touch Scribe HD doesn’t quite de­liver clear-cut im­ages. It’s got a short bat­tery life­span too. Lock and un­lock any­thing with just one beat – your heart­beat. Nymi, the über-cool de­vice by Bionym, de­tects your heart­beat via elec­tro­car­dio­gram to val­i­date your iden­tity through an em­bed­ded sen­sor that is then sent to all your synced de­vices via Blue­tooth Low En­ergy. Thanks to its mo­tion sens­ing and prox­im­ity de­tec­tion fea­ture, all you have to do is walk over to your car and use a ges­ture-spe­cific com­mand to open the doors. Now, how amaz­ing is that? The next time you see your guy get­ting sucked into the vir­tual world of gam­ing, join in on the fun! That’s be­cause be­lieve it or not, be­ing com­pletely en­grossed in the game can ac­tu­ally en­hance some im­por­tant skills. Give th­ese ones a go.
