The New Asus Zenfone 5 Versus the Nuu Mobile G3 When Buying For Your College Student

Hopefully you have seen my previous post/videos on what to get your first year college student. We covered the basics of smartphones and the really good, but not overpriced laptops/notebooks. They were each covered in the posts below.

Tonight I am doing a quick post with 2 videos and covering the Nuu Mobile G3 versus the Asus Zenfone 5. The Zenfone 5 is more on the order of a low end mid-range, but what were are really looking at here is bang for the buck. Absolutely one of the best budget smartphones versus one that costs a good chunk of change more.

There are great things about each phone and one overriding factor to consider, which we will get to in the video.

On paper, the Asus is the clear winner, bigger battery, a bit better processor and a larger screen. But there are some downsides such as the fact that you will need to consider ordering it now, to get it in time before college begins! It also has a few issues with display and the huge factor, that I will cover in the video below. Well on second thought, the big factor is price! $199 on the G3, versus the current price of $385 on the Asus!

Other than the basic display differences, these are fairly similar phones. The G3 does not have a headphone connector and that isn’t great, but it does have the adapter. The Asus also includes headphones and an OTG cable, a big plus. Big negative for me, the Asus has a notch!

So let us get to those 2 videos, one by myself and then just one of 5 videos I watched today, this one from Chris over at Techtablets. The first one is from our YouTube Channel.

Remember the Nuu Mobile G3? : Someone is giving one away! (video)

Giveaway? Yeah!

The other day I mentioned my interest in the Guu Mobile smartphone and tonight while watching a few more videos I ran across a giveaway!

So I did a video, and nit-picked the reviewer a tiny bit, but the bottom line is that if you watch the video you will find out how to get in on the giveaway.

Overall, from what I am reading/watching so far this is a decent device at a great price, that just happens to also look good. Check my previous post for more details.

So without further introduction here is the video…

Of course Please Like the video and subscribe to the new channel here!

That is all I have for now,

Tim

I Have Been Looking Hard At New Smart Phones: The NUU Mobile G3 Is Looking Great!

A few weeks ago I ran across my first video review of the NUU Mobile G3. It actually caught my attention! Sure, I love my ancient BLU Studio Energy 2 with it’s huge 5000 mAh battery, but it is getting near time to move on.

So for folks who follow me on Twitter ( @tl1000rzx2), you will see that I have been watching a ton of reviews on this device. 99% are pure positive and the rest simply have some nit-picks.

The bottom line is that this is a solid, 5.7 inch, 18:9, 720p IPS display phone that is equipped with some decent cameras. The processor is a Helio P25 along with additional features such as 4 GB Ram, 64 GB on-board storage, Android 7.1, microSD expansion capability up to 128 GB microSD , NFC and it actually looks pretty darn nice.

The price at $199 is also appealing and who knows, maybe I can talk someone out there into sending me one for a super long term test!

The company’s website for NUU is a bit confusing as they claim it is glass and ceramic back with a metal frame but some reviewers swear it is plastic, (although I do not care). Also the company website also mentions only WiFi b/g/n speeds, but at least 2 reviewers are claiming it has WiFi ac ( 5 GHz) .

I won’t be posting videos, just check my twitter account and you will find all the like videos I have watched so far. As usual, I tend to take a long, long time to pull the trigger, so who knows, in 2 weeks I might have a new favorite.

Okay, changed my mind, below I am posting text links to all those reviews and unboxing I have watched. As usual, they will open in a new tab or window, depending on your browser. Here be the short list:

Okay, I am cutting the list off at 7. Suffice to say they are quite a few folks looking at this phone.

That is all I have at this time, except please click the Paypal Donate button and help me make up my mind, or send me one of these for a great long term test!

Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: I Need This Phone! NUU G3 5.7 Inch Review!

All too often we are captivated by the looks and pricing of so called “flagship” phones and we fail to realize there are a lot of less expensive, high quality, phones out there on the market!

The NUU G3 is one of those phones and the video below comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech. This is a top notch performer and the price comes in at under $200! No, it is not a replacement for the techno-idiots who must have “more horsepower”, but it will get the job done and at the price you simply can’t beat the specs!

Perhaps I will one day get one of these, so I can do a giveaway on my BLU Studio Energy 2  phone, which is smaller, has an AMOLED display and a HUGE 5000 mAh battery, but it does need updating.

So let us move on to the video from Andrew and make sure to check out his channel which is ro say the least fantastic!

That is all I have at this moment, except to remind folks about the new YouTube channel we have and to ask folks to donate or send products to test!
