Archos Diamond Plus Showing off a Bigger Screen

diamondAfter a series of exciting announcements regarding its ARCHOS Diamond line, ARCHOS is thrilled to cap off the releases with the news of a second Diamond smartphone: the ARCHOS Diamond Plus!

“There’s no reason customers should have only one model option in our quest to offer 4G/LTE smartphones to a greater public. Offering a larger-screened product with a slightly different design gives ARCHOS customers more diversity and choice,” says Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.

A Multi-Faceted Diamond

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus offers all the hallmark traits of the prestigious Diamond line — an Octa-Core processor, 4G/LTE connectivity, great cameras, and more — in a new silver design featuring a gorgeous 5.5” inch FHD IPS screen with full lamination. Sleek, thin, with a slightly curved silver back-casing, the ARCHOS Diamond Plus is immediately eye-catching, especially with its bright screen illuminated.

The Octa-Core Cortex A53 1.5GHz processor in the ARCHOS Diamond Plus smartphone is among the highest quality hardware available in smartphones today. With industry-leading power, this processor seamlessly powers apps, games, and web browsing. All of this content can be stored in the roomy 16GB of storage in the device, which is easily expandable up to 32GB with a MicroSD card. It also has fast charging capability to be fully ready as soon as possible.

Its two cameras clock in at 16MP for the back camera and 8MP for the front camera. A five-element lens of the back camera prevents distortion, and the very wide angle of the front camera is perfect for selfies. You’ll look great in photos (and look great taking them)!

All of this great functionality of the ARCHOS Diamond Plus runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android’s newest operating system, which offers improvements to previous versions of impressive Android software.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be unveiled for the first time at IFA in Berlin beginning September 4, 2015. To see more new ARCHOS products at IFA, the group can be found in Hall 4.2/121.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be available in November 2015 for £179.99.

IMG_0583Honor surprised the crowd at last Thursday’s launch of the European version of the honor 7 smartphone, with a new honor wearable device for the wrist.

Complete with a 1.06-inch circular full-screen display and an industry-leading G-sensor powered by advanced algorithms, the wearable device is the ultimate fashion gadget. It will provide users with the ability to easily and accurately monitor their performance when engaged in exercise or sporting activities. The wearable also offers sleep quality monitoring and calling reminding. It is 10 meter water resistant and dust proof with IP68 certification. It has a long lasting battery for 3 days.

Honor announced a competition to name the product, where the person who submits the winning name will receive all Honor products for the next five years on sale in his/her country, until 2020.

How to Recover Files after Format?

Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 07.38.35Mention the word ‘free’ and you may think that there’s no free lunch in this world. But in the world of software, you should know that there’s one recovery software free download that has been making the waves all over the world.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.0 is one of the best file recovery software for all of your photo recovery needs to recover deleted, formatted or lost data from PC, laptop or removable device easily and quickly. It even supports a lot of languages, so you can use it natively according to your preference.

 

There’s actually a solid reason as to why the recovery software free download is so popular. It is so easy to get started with using the file recovery software – download, install and launch. No questions asked and no unnecessary email that you have to give-away.

Say for example if you want to perform a photo recovery of your digital camera, this recovery software free download comes with two progressive scanning modes:

  1. Quick Scan – helps you to find deleted files
  2. Deep Scan – helps you to find formatted, inaccessible or lost files

It will be able to help you recover anything from pictures, videos, audio, emails, documents and everything else in between. You can even pause at any time during the scan and continue later, but it is advisable to complete the scan as soon as possible to maximize the chances of photo recovery.

Another cool feature of this file recovery software is that you can specify the exact file type and location before you even start the scanning process. So if you want to perform a photo recovery from your digital camera, just select Graphics and your Digital Camera. This will ensure that the recovery software free download application saves you precious time and gives you the exact files that you want. Once it finds all the recoverable files, you can then filter your search by file name, type and date. Since it is an image file, you can even view the thumbnail of that image, so you can be sure of which files that you want to proceed with the recovery process.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.0 is a top file recovery software that can be used for all of your photo recovery needs. Who say a free application can’t be this good? The recovery software free download certainly is more valuable than some of the paid applications that are out there in the market.
