Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Unboxing Pictures & Review
The 4.2-inch LCD screen is a LED-backlit TFT one. Unlike the over-bright AMOLED display, this is able to display more subdued and accurate colours, with more contrast and less noise which makes the screen a pleasure to watch. Located under the superwide screen there's 3 physical front keys which are both decent-looking and easy to hit.
Further adding to the aesthetic, the waistline is slimmed down to 8.7mm at the thinnest point. Due to the innovative concave design, the device is made smaller and thinner. The superlight and slender body owns a sensual bodyline which is appealing to see and comfortable to touch.
The 8.1-megapixel camera is definitely another highlight of the device. Photo quality is guaranteed by the Exmor R CMOS sensor, a really fresh technology which is just recently found in new compact cameras. It can also take HD videos even in low-light environment. However, location of the camera is too close to the edge, making it extremely easy to be covered by fingers.
On top of the handset you can find a relatively small (yet slightly eleavated) power key and the micro HDMI port which enables HDMI output from the phone to TV screens.
All in all, the beautiful design and powerful specs makes Xperia Arc a truly awesome handset. With a truly classy wafer-thin body, the handset manages to offer exciting new technologies like the Exmor R sensor, the Mobile Bravia Engine. These all contributes to the birth of a top tier smartphone.
LG Optmius 2X Unboxing Pictures & Review
What covers the entire front of Optmius 2X is the uninterrupted piece of Gorilla Glass which is beautiful yet tough enough to resist damanges. Under the 4-inch LCD screen harbours 4 capacitive touch buttons. It is noteworthy that the touch response is indeed excellent with a smooth navigating and browsing experience supported by the Tegra 2 processor.
The bronzy brown back has a slightly plastic and rubberized texture. Yet the “with Google” metal strip may appears a bit odd on it.
The 8-megapixel camera proves to be impressive with a really bright integrated LED flash. The device also offers 1080p HD video playback and recording with HDMI mirroring (which makes content on external display in full HD quality as well)
On top of the device you can find the power key, the 3.5mm audio jack (unprotected unfortunately), as well as the micro HDMI port. Thanks to the HDMI mirroring, Optmius 2X can easily stream 1080p video footage to both external and internal monitors All in all, the fact that LG Optimus 2X is a dual-core smartphone has immediately makes itself a groundbreaking one. The powerful Tegra 2 technology, as expected, would only grow in significance in the near future. The LG Optmius 2X is thus a nice attempt to explore the unknown field.

Canon IXUS 220 HS Digital Camera Unboxing Pictures & Review
The stainless steel body makes Cannon 220 HS immediately a decent spokeperson of the line of premium, ultra-slim IXUS models. A more advanced than ever specification is made compatible with the stylish appearance.
The 2.7-inch LCD screen is proved to be satisfactory for framing playback and menu navigation. The 230-dot resolution guarantees high levels of on-screen detail, together with a tempered glass outer layer provides a wider viewing angle with brilliant colour reproduction and high contrast.
You can find that only the most necessary like the power button and zooming wheel are packedly located on the top to keep the device a truly compact and handy one.
Buttons for setting changing are neatly arranged near the screen for sake of convenience. Yet, it’s natural for users to pick on the absence of a delete button as well as a self-timer button.
All in all, reasonable priced with satisfactory performance, the device manages to rise as a rival with other higher-end, higher-priced compacts. It is indeed a value for money!
Olympus XZ-1 Unboxing Pictures & Review
The built-in Olympus Zuiko lens is certainly a big selling point of XZ-1. Indeed, the high-end optics company is famous for manufacturing sophisticated lens that used to appear only on SLRs. XZ-1 is thus the very first compact camera installed with a ZUIKO lens.
The neat tiny pop-up flash sitting on the top left corner of the camera’s back plate is definitely a delicate treat by Olympus. It can be raised manually to control remotely and fire compatible flashguns.
The rear panel is dominated by the high-resolution, 3.0" 621k (VGA equivalent) OLED display. The gorgeous screen is able to offers superb brightness and contrast with better viewing angles and better battery life than usual LCD displays do.
The rear control dial around the four-way pad allows the users to set shutter speed in manually, exposure compensation in different modes and also to navigate menus. Together with another control dial around the lens and other keys, settings-changing is now made convenient and easy.
On top of the camera, you can find the power button, the shutter release, zoom rocker and mode dial. The iAuto mode has always appeared on any E-PL cameras. XZ-1, more than that, also features other most-used control like the P,A,S, M modes, the Art Filters and the Low Light modes.
The AP-1 accessory port can therefore be used to connect the brilliant VF-2 external viewfinder, SEMA-1 external microphone or MAL-1 LED macro lights yet not the recently-announced PENPal Bluetooth add-on.
All in all, XZ-1 is surely worthy of being called as a class-leading compact.
