Tech Review: The ZTE Axon M Dual Screen Foldable Phone @ZTEPress @ATT

 

In the ever changing Smartphone industry companies are looking for the next best feature to outdo the Apple and the Samsung’s of the tech world. Launched late last year The ZTE Axon M is a first of what ZTE promises to be a series of foldable phones to hit the market throughout 2018. The Dual Screen is the feature the phone is banking on.

zte-axon-m-1.jpg

The dual screen is the feature that sets this phone apart from the rest. That’s right an identical 5.2 inch 1080p display opens up with three modes available. ZTE offers to take advantage of the second screen. “Dual mode” is the most practical and will probably be the most widely used mode allowing to run apps side by side. Being able to send a text or watch a video while navigating google maps without leaving the screen is a convenient tool. The audio is only heard from the screen that is being actively used at the moment.

“Extended mode” lets you run a single app on both screens extending the phone to a tablet size. This feature makes watching videos and gaming more of a life-size TV like experience. “Mirror mode” mirrors the same content on both screens so when placed in a tent like position 2 people can watch the same thing or play the same game.

The pros of this phone include the dual screens, sturdy design, a very good battery 3.180mAh battery that remained charged all day even with heavy use, a 20 mega pixel camera that produced clear pics and a user friendly onscreen format.

The cons include a thick heavy design, 1 camera compared to multiple cameras in top tier phones, and an older Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB of RAM.

The ZTE is available exclusively in the US for $725 through ATT right now. This is only the beginning for foldable phones from ZTE with future phones planned that are not dual screened but with new and exciting features. We will follow their progress and report on new launches.

Urban Tech Gala 2017 Gustavinos NYC @UrbanTechCenter

 

Last week the 22nd annual Urban Tech Gala was held at Gustavinos in NYC. The Urban Tech Center is a non-profit organization started by Pat Bransford over two decades ago. It’s primary focus is to build social and life skills, improve academic skills, financial, and digital literacy skills for the underserved youth in urban areas in New York City. It has since expanded to other urban areas nationwide. The Youth Leadership Academy(YLA) courses develop students fundamental skills for life effectiveness. Urban Tech’s “Adopt A School” program focuses on Financial Network Program, Dignity for All, STEM, and Social Justice & Community Leadership.

The Gala was co-hosted by actor, director, and screenwriter Ted Lange and TV Host, reporter and humanitarian Alicia Quarles

This year’s honorees were Vicky Fuller, Chief Investment officer at New York’s State Common Retirement Fund, Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama’s Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs and Don Lowery, Senior Vice President Community Engagement at Nielsen.

The Gala also honored special guest Hannah Bronfman. Hannah is a DJ, health and wellness enthusiast and founder of HBFIT.com, a unique online community for people who are passionate about health, beauty, fitness, wellness, travel, music, and travel. Hannah is also a fashionista and an “It Girl”. The award was presented to her by her mother Sherry Bronfman, a long time supporter of The Urban Tech Center.

Wisewear: Fashion meets Tech according to Iris Apfel @Wisewear

 

 

010516-iris-apfel-lead

 

Wisewear was conceived out of the reality that the population is getting older, but is also more fashionable and tech savvy than previous generations. The company collaborated with 94 year fashion icon, designer and innovator Iris Apfel to design the Socialite collection, comprised of three uniquely designed smart bracelets that are equally functional and fashionable.

The primary features of these trackers are the norm and include text, email, calls, footsteps, and calorie counts, but what sets these bracelets apart is the distress signal feature that sends out a signal to ones contacts in case of a fall or other safety emergency.

Originally designed for an older consumer because of the distress feature and a higher price point ($295-$345) it has been discovered that younger women also had a need and a desire to own a trendy fashionable accessory that can go with any outfit and provide them with a piece of mind knowing help is easily accessible if they should need it. Now available for purchase at Saks Fifth Ave and other retailers abroad. #Sponsored

Alpessence Skincare: Luxury Tech-Infused Skincare from Switzerland @Alpessence #Beauty

The Skincare Industry is saturated with hundreds of brands from all over the world, each vying for a spot in the Uber competitive US Market. To be recognized in the luxury market, a brand has to have the newest technology, quality ingredients, and prove to be highly effective. Alpessence Skincare, a luxury brand from Switzerland, launched a collection with all these qualities in 14 countries, and earlier this year started delivering them stateside.

The collection includes eight products at the moment with a range of moisturizers, serums, cleansers, toners, and masks infused with diamonds, pearls, caviar, rose stem cells and other luxurious ingredients. Each product is designed to deliver unique anti-aging results and to regenerate and repair skin damaged by stress, toxins, and the environment. An important aspect in our review is that Alpessence does not test on animals and is cruelty free.

The newest wave in skincare technology is based on infusion and product absorption. Alpessence scientists discovered that efficacy rates of a product greatly increased when the product was absorbed deep into the outer layers of the epidermis instead of remaining on the surface. The team came up with a group of active ingredients that when combined, provide deep absorption and therefore maximum results. The collection focuses on aiding with dark spots, dull skin, lifting & firming skin, pores, wrinkles, dry skin and anti- oxidant protection. The Hero product and our favorite is the Caviar Serum that boost’s the skin’s ability to absorb the product and any product applied after.

Tech: HTC 10 Has Moved into the top of the line Smartphone Category

wp-1461755489746.jpg

HTC has finally moved into the same category as The Samsung G7, Samsung Galaxy Edge 7 and the LG5 with the arrival of the HTC 10 Flagship Smartphone. Struggling for years to come out with models that can compete with the other top of the line smartphones, the HTC 10 offers features that rise above the competition with extended battery life, a great camera, and user friendly features.

The all aluminum design and composition that is curved for easier handling and maneuverability feels thinner than it actually is and the glass front along with a fingerprint scanner on the home button, comparable with the S7 Edge, makes the HTC 10 look sleek and stylish. Equipped with a selfie camera , 5.2 inch HD LCD Screen, a 12 mega pixel, ultra pixel camera, and 32GB of memory along with room for a 200gb microSD card this smartphone has qualities that rival the leaders.

The HTC 10 uses Qualcomm’s newest processor, The Snapdragon 820, which makes gaming, multi faceted app use, and video streaming simple to use. The battery on the HTC is expected to last 2 days with standard use and includes a 3.0 enabled Rapid charger that will charge the device up to  50 percent in 30 minutes. 

The HTC 10 will come factory unlocked and available for Tmobile and AT&T and will be priced at $699

Fascia Yoga with Ashley Black, “The Cellulite Myth (It’s not Fat its Fascia)”.

Ashley Black is considered the pre-eminent authority on the topic of Fascia. Like beauty and wellness trends before this, ala cupping and cryotherapy, Fascia blasting is the newest trend with celebs and regular folk alike.

What is Fascia? Ashley says “Fascia is the connective tissue in our body and it’s job is to support and protect muscles and organs. When our bodies experience any kind of injury the fascia contracts and distorts to offer support which can be painful and can also cause the appearance of cellulite”.

Fascia Yoga is a different way to stretch your entire body beyond creating flexibility in the muscles and joints. This method stretches the long lines of Fascia that runs along our entire bodies. Ashley designed a line of yoga equipment and products so that individuals can practice this at home without the expense of a doctor or a physical therapist. The FasciaYoga Ball ($25) is different than a regular stability ball because the grip of the material on the person’s skin or clothing simulates the manual stretching technique of a physical therapist.

Ashley designed a line of products designed to massage the fascia to lessen the appearance of cellulite, reduce pain, improve blood flow and increase flexibility. FasciaBlaster Tools include the Fasciablaster ($89), Mini 1 & 2 ($65), Faceblaster ($65), Masterblaster ($124.99), Party Blaster ($89), Blaster Oil & After Cream ($30).

Ashley’s #1 best selling book “The Cellulite Myth, It’s not fat it’s Fascia” is available here Fasciablaster.com

To use these devices for maximum benefit warm up by :

  • Do light cardio for a few minutes and take a hot shower, bath, or sauna,
  • Apply blaster oil on bare clean skin.
  • Choose device to use for the session and start rolling the device over the area using up and down and side to side motions
  • Time to Recover: Bruises, Soreness, and Swelling are normal.

Rodan + Fields Go Naked Campaign in Honor of National Selfie Day June 21st #RFGoNaked

sku-aaaps01-redefine-amp-md-system-lg.png

National Selfie Day is June 21 so that means makeup free selfies to help support The Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change Foundation. The 2018 goal is 1 million selfies ( 1 million dollars) with $1 dollar donated for each by Rodan + Fields tagged #RFGoNaked. The foundation serves youth with life changing empowerment programs in their communities. The goal is to boost confidence, especially in young adults and promote feeling comfortable in one’s own skin.

To prep our skin and get it ready to go make free we tested out the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE AMP MD System. The AMP- MD Derma Roller offers the highest technology to micro- exfoliate the skin. When used with the intensive renewing serum containing powerful peptides with exclusive R+F retinol MD technology, skin is plumper and firmer looking and the appearance of wrinkles and lines is greatly reduced. Use in the evening least three times week on face and neck for optimal results.#AD
