    We are extremely excited to bring you this exclusive world 1st review for the Ugoos UM3. We hope you enjoy reading this Ugoos UM3 Review as much as we enjoyed making it. You can buy the Ugoos UM3 from this authorised Ugoos UM3 reseller here. We have received this Ugoo UM3 Mini PC this morning and have unboxed the unit, the box we have received for this preview model of the Ugoos UM3, contains the unit itself, a power supply and an HDMi cable. But the final retail production model box contents may differ.

    Starting off the Ugoos UM3 boots quickly, and it's a good sign of a well made unit. The RK3288 system board obviously aiding in this fast boot up with it's new chipset features and its shear CPU power. First we wanted to test out the video playback quality for the UM3. After all one of the main aspects of the RK3288 and the Ugoos UM3 is it's support for 2K and 4K video and above. First off we tested 1080p on our Sony HD TV here at apadtv. Stunning perfect performance on all files we tested using the built in video player.

    However, as we don't have a 4K HD TV to test on here at apadtv, it's off to our local TV store where we purchased our Sony, to see if they will let us hook up the Ugoos UM3 to one of their Sharp 4K TV sets. We went armed with a handful of 4K test video files copied to our 32GB TF-card inserted in to the Ugoos UM3.

    The results of the 4K video test where pleasing and vithout any doubt a success. When you sit and watch this miniature device being able to output 4K video is when you realise what a special excellent little device the Ugoos UM3 actually is.

    Back at apadtv we have tested some 3D games, including Asphalt 8 Air and a few other titles from the Google Playstore. All ran ultra smooth and the performance of the Ugoos UM3 was stunning in comparison with any other units we have operated these games on previously. This makes the UM3 the new standard for expected performance and system features. The RK3288 is looking to be a very successful system board for Mini PCs, and the Ugoos UM3 is looking like it will be an extremely popular unit.

    The Ugoos UM3 gets apadtv's official seal of approval and is highly recommended by all of us at apadtv. If you want to order a Ugoos UM3 right now, head over to the Ugoos official supplier which can be found here.

    We hope you enjoy this Zopo ZP980+ Review. The Zopo ZP980+ Android phone preview model was kindly sent to us by the nice folks here. Who also are offering the best deal on the Zopo ZP980+ phone here.




    The ZP980 plus is a new mid-to high spec Android smartphone from Zopo. The plus is an updated version of the ZP980. The plus offers a 1.7 GHz OctaCore CPU with a 14 MP camera. The plus also has OTA, OTG, Corning Gorilla Glass, 1GB RAM, and 16GB ROM. One of the first things you notice when you hold the ZP980+ in your hand is what a beautiful slick feeling the phone casing has. So does the phone itself operate with such a slick feel? It does and it's a pleasant surprise it isn't over loaded with any hardly any pre-installed bloatware.

    The Zopo ZP980+ firmware has been polished and we didn't find any bugs as we spent a whole weekend using this handset. As you touch the menus you notice that the device is operating very smoothly. So we put it to the test fully and had podcast streamers, HD video playing, and transferred some files by WiFi, meanwhile we where listening through a Bluetooth earpiece and there was no slowdown whatsoever. Then a final test of power was the Antutu Benchmark we ran. Which got over 27,000 points!

    The 8-core CPU on the Zopo ZP980+ is a MTK6592. The screen on the ZP980+ is the other significant feature, with a FHD 5" display. Full HD 1080P is the screen's forte and it looks stunning. The TF-card slot accepts 64GB memory cards which is another feature we liked. OK, so it's a beast of high performance, and it looks and operates like a dream. The killer questions is, is it reasonably priced and how long does the battery last? The good news is its available right now from here for a very low price. And we managed full days of use on each charge, with plenty of high power consumption tasks throughout the day such as 3G, HD video playback, gaming, full screen brightness and intensive WiFi file copying.

    In a nutshell the new Zopo ZP980+ is a great new smartphone with a competitive price and nice specifications. If you want an ultra powerful pocket rocket that you don't mind having to charge each night then the Zopo ZP980+ is your perfect Android smartphone.

    The CS918S is a new Android TV Box featuring a Quad-Core AllWinner A31 CPU board and boasting all of the latest features. We got our preview model from the nice team here.



    The built-in 5MP camera is great for an Android TV box, but also one of the best features of the CS918S is the internal USB 3G card bay, which can also be used for USB flash drives. A panel opens and this allows you to place a device inside the main casing. This design leads to a tidy well planned out solution for your Android TV Box set up.

    XBMC, MiraCast, DLNA, and support for Netflix is available right out of the box. The Android Jelly Bean firmware has been very polished and the feature set is very solid on the CS918S. Check out more pictures of the CS918S over on the pictures thread. Check out the ports and observe the well designed casing. Full specs can be found in the CS918S specs thread here.

    For video conferencing the CS918S is ideal, it has Bluetooth, a built-in Mic, and supports all of the most popular apps for video conferencing, including Skype. The CS918S is a perfect video conferencing solution.

    So apart from the features on the CS918S, I hear you ask “how is it for media playback, such as Audio and High Definition video?” and my answer is that it goes beyond expectations by offering full support for HD video, including encoding and playback of 4K video as well as 720p and 1080p. The CS918S can also downscale to lower resolutions if required. The CS918S can also decode and encode 3D video (that's playback and record!).

    Two models are being released, the 8GB internal storage model ROM and a 16GB ROM edition. Both have 2GB of DDR3 memory. Also some specs can be found on this Buy CS918s page. To buy this excellent new Android TV box, visit this apad.tv approved CS918S buy link here. More pictures can also be found in the CS918S Review pictures thread here.

    I had a chance to spend a few hours today checking out the new Quad-Core Newman K2 Phone. The new Newman (oohh I won't say that again!) smartphone comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has a 3G WCDMA built-in modem. The K2 has GPS and inside the heart of this pretty beast is a MT6589T (turbo!) 1.5GHz CPU board.

    One of the main aspects of the Newman K2 is the stunningly beautiful screen, which is 5.5" and operates at a slick 1920x1080 pixel resolution. The main camera on the K2 is 13.0MP. So plenty of clarity for all your snaps while you're out and about.



    "How is the screen on this hi-resolution screened phone" I hear you say, "is it clear and well defined??" The screen is FHD and is currently the best type of screen you can find on a smartphone. With 16 million colors and ultra crisp tones and perfect definition the screen is my favorite aspect of this new phone.

    When looking at the pictures of the Newman K2 you can see it's quite a plush handset with nice curves and the specs do provide the cherry on the cake when summarizing this new smartphone. So in summery the Newman K2 looks to be a very popular new Android phone with some excellent late 2013 level specifications. Oh and "what is the price?" I hear you say, check out DealsPrime.com as they are offering the Newman K2 at a special price right now.

    I was surprised today when a new Ugoos TV stick Mini PC showed up on my desk. Just sent direct from Ugoos. The reason I was surprised is the UM1 I just reviewed was exceptionally well rounded and polished and I did not expect to see an even better version arrive so soon.

    The Ugoos UM2 offers a number of noteworthy specifications, including the highly polished Ugoos build of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with hardware XMBC support. A Quad Core 1.5Ghz RK3188 CPU board, 2GB DDR3 RAM and a set of dual USB 2.0 Ports. 2 USB ports for a small HDMi dongle is a first as far as I'm aware. The USB ports are located 1 on each side of the dongle. It's quite an impressive compact design and a lot better than the recent offerings I've seen from other brands.



    Connectivity is complemented by the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 adapter. As well as WiFi B/G/N support. There are also options within the WiFi menu to allow Hotspot creation, VPN Proxy support, and PPOE for DSL connections.

    I decided to call DealsPrime to see when they will be getting the Ugoos UM2 in stock and they have just confirmed to me that it's just arrived and is available to ship out right now. Here is the direct link to the Ugoos UM2 product page.

    The launcher for the UM2 is a well put together array of useful category areas and favorite apps with built-in support for Netflix and Google Playstore. The 3 built in video players offer you all the flexibility you will need and then there is the XMBC app that is pre-installed. So no need to hunt around on forums trying to get your XMBC working, it's working right out of the box with the Ugoos UM2!

    From initial testing the Ugoos UM2 plays 1080p video files perfectly, with full support for all the most popular Audio and video file types, including support for Xvid, .MKV .FLAC and OGG. Streaming online video is also very well supported with YouTube operating natively along with every other Flash based video website I tried. Adobe Flash 11 is pre-installed.



    Web browsing and gaming are well supported and I was able to run everything I threw at the UM2. I suspect this is because the UM2 has 2GB of DDR3 RAM and a quad-core Mali400 GPU and a well crafted stock firmware.

    In summary the Ugoos UM2 is a really exceptional head turning Mini PC that currently leaves all other Mini PCs in it's wake. Running Utorrent the UM2 was able to quickly download and display content in a matter of seconds. Also downloading content at the same time as watching different content was a smooth experience, which is noteworthy for a Mini PC. A well rounded viewing experience and all from the comfort of your sofa or chair. For further information check out the officially endorsed Ugoos UM2 support forum that can be found here.
