Samsung S Health App Now Works With Non Samsung Devices.

Sony has barely put a foot wrong with the Xperia Z4 tablet, the same as with its previous waterproof tablet, the Z3, the compact version of which remains one of our favourite tablets of all time.Dubbed Project Valley, the foldable smartphone is said to be currently under testing with two hardware configurations that include the use of Snapdragon 620 processor or Snapdragon 820.The Samsung S Health app will now work with non Samsung devices that are running Android 4.4 and above, you can see more information on what else is included in the update below. – Tablets and some mobile devices may not be supported.

For example: a smaller footprint (the update requires only 1.3GB, about a third of the 4.58GB space needed for iOS 8), better battery life (up to an additional hour and even more with Low Power Mode), faster performance (e.g., smoother scrolling, animations), and boosted security with the option for 6-digit passcode instead of just 4. A concept video of the rumoured device hints at the pocketbook like foldable smartphone which would come with 3 GB of RAM, a micorSD card slot, and a non-removable battery.

And Apple has added 3D Touch, a feature it talked a lot about when announcing the 6s earlier this month: depending on how you press the screen, you can trigger actions like getting a peek at the contents of an email or getting a look at a website before you go there. With the Z4, Sony has solved that quibble, by coming up with a micro USB port you can leave exposed to the elements, even when you have the tablet with you in the shower. As Samsung Galaxy has long rumoured to be testing the Snapdragon 820 chipset, the purported foldable smartphone could as well serve as the test bed for the new processor, reports Samsung Mobile.

With a history of manufacturing the world’s first Super Amoled display in 2010 and the world’s first dual-edge curved display, with the Galaxy S6 Edge this year, a foldable smartphone, if launched, the move would yet again place the South Korean giant ahead of its competitors. Siri, for example, now offers suggestions of what app you’ll want to use next, a feature Android has perfected with Google Now (and some would say is still ahead of Apple). iOS 9 also features a “Back to” strip at the top left of the screen – for switching between apps – a capability Android has had for years. I reviewed the 10.1-inch Xperia Z4 at the same time as Samsung’s new 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 and, while they’re very similar machines – they both run Android 5.02 (hopefully, with upgrades to Android 5.1 in future), both are as thin and light as an iPad Air 2, if not more so – it’s interesting how their subtle differences make them suitable for quite different applications. Now the good news is that if you wanted to see what all the fuss was about with regards to S Health, you’re in luck because it appears that Samsung has decided to release it to the masses. That being said, S Health is just one of many health apps available on Android, but if you haven’t found one that suits your needs in terms of features or design, then perhaps S Health might be a worthy alternative.

After four or five days of carrying both around, I have to admit I reached for the Samsung more often, just because of that aspect ratio and despite that Sony has a sharper screen. (An incredible screen, in fact.) It turns out that Apple knows a thing or two about usability, and the 4:3 ratio feels a little more comfortable, especially when you’re using the tablet for applications such as reading magazines or books, or for the word processing or productivity apps that were the focus of my review. Bottom line: Because it’s such a critical component, both Apple and Samsung have become very adept at making fast, cutting-edge silicon. iPhone and Galaxy owners aren’t going to notice any glaring differences in most cases. The Samsung has bottom-facing speakers, like an iPad, which can leave the sound a little muffled, especially if you’re trying to watch a video in bed. Samsung isn’t enjoying the dominant position it once did and its numbers are sliding down the slippery slope, owing to several Chinese vendors that offer superior specs at affordable prices.

Also the Xperia played videos better than the Tab S2, which tended to stumble over high-bit-rate videos in a way that made us wonder whether there might have been something wrong with our device. Looks like, these new innovations are aimed at building an out of the box device that could help the company bounce back as a leader in the mobile space.

It has stepped up to a 12-megapixel camera (after sticking with 8-megapixels for the last several years) and introduced more advanced individual pixel technology too. And of course there’s the waterproofing, which probably won’t make so much difference to the way you shower – I only ever take phones and tablets into the shower with me three or four times a year, when a new Xperia comes out basically – but could make a difference to the way you cook, read in the bath or by the pool or at the beach. While some reviews have questioned the practicality of the edge screen (e.g., “tricky to hold”) it’s nevertheless a big departure from the standard flat screen.

Samsung also offers larger displays with better resolution: the S6 has a 5.1-inch display versus the iPhone 6s’ 4.7-incher and Samsung squeezes in the larger display without making the S6 appreciably bigger than the iPhone 6s.
