Which among them the most qualified when invited to play games? This is trying to look for the answer by GameBench benchmarking software maker.

In a report IB Times, GameBench run 10 popular mobile game titles are voracious resource in a fourth mobile phone, including GTA: San Andreas, Monument Valley, and Marvel: Contest of Champions.

Performance is measured on the value of mobile phones frames per second (FPS) and the median age of a variety of games that run. FPS stability is also included in the assessment. As a result, Apple’s iPhone 6 appearing at the top.

“IPhone 6 on average produce higher value by 10 percent while running tenth tested high end games,” said GameBench in its report.

“Galaxy S6 performed in second place, with more performance bottleneck that causes the framerate dropped to 30 FPS,” said the company. As for the third and fourth positions respectively occupied by HTC Nexus One M9 and 6.

Although the iPhone 6 had won the first prize, GameBench add a note that some games are more optimized for one platform than the other (eg iOS, rather than Android).

iPhone 6 also run the game with a smaller resolution than the Android phones (720p, 1080p versus on Android) so that the processing load is smaller. Screen resolution of the device in question is lower than most high-end Android smartphones today.

Differences that are under GameBench contribute to the high value of the iPhone 6. Going forward, GameBench intend to run tests on an iPhone 6 Plus which has a display resolution standard closer to Android.

Samsung NX3000 is a mirrorless camera, So Cool!

Samsung Samsung NX3000 is a mirrorless camera aimed at beginners and the general public need a better camera quality than compact cameras.

samsung cameras

The image sensor in this camera that is equivalent to the sensor used in DSLR cameras. Because the system includes a camera, the user can also change the lens as needed and the images are to be obtained.


Design Samsung NX3000 retro rangefinder camera or the film era, the top of the camera is made of a thin casing, there is a hotshoe for flash / accessories and wheel mode dial, there is the on / off and the mobile (for WiFI and others).

Materials to the top of the camera is very nice and made ​​of metal. For the lower part, the material of plastics textured. There are several colors, one brown that looks much like that of the skin.

The camera is relatively small and lightweight because only 230 grams. And the camera is one of the most comfortable to grip.

Although this camera is included for beginners, many buttons are available for quick access, so no need to change settings often go into the menu.

The buttons include: Fn (a kind of quick menu), AF mode, drive mode, displays, custom menu (can be programmed), playback (for reviewing images).

Moreover, in the existing lens i-Fn button, which allows us to change settings such as aperture, ISO, white balance and exposure compensation by turning the focus ring on the lens.

Not usually the entry level cameras provide a lot of buttons and wheel to change settings such as the NX3000. Therefore, experienced photographers will also be happy to use it. Because the buttons are all located to the right of the camera, then change the settings can be used with one hand.

Accommodate enthusiasts selfie (self-portrait), NX3000 LCD screen can be rotated up to 180 degrees. Its LCD screen is 3 inches big enough and clear, but the resolution is not the best current standards.

Its resolution 460,000 dots LCD. While in the intermediate and advanced cameras typically use an LCD screen 900,000 or 1 million points.

The screen is not touchscreen so can not change the settings or focus area by touching the LCD screen directly. Interestingly, if the screen is folded up, the camera will automatically turn on without having to press a button on.

Were somewhat unique to me is that the battery Samsung uses such as mobile phones to flat shape, its capacity is 2330 mAh large enough so that enough for a full day sightseeing. This type of battery is bigger than the Samsung NX300 that capacity is only 1130 mah.

Full battery capacity can be used to snap pictures of 370 times. For a photographic tour that takes pictures of the sunrise until sunset, you should prepare a backup battery 1-2. Memory cards are used is also unique, which is a micro SD.

Unfortunately, this camera can not accept SD memory cards. So that already have a lot of SD cards can not be installed on this camera. To charge the battery, Samsung provides a charge directly through the camera cable. Unfortunately not supplied external charger.

For image quality, roughly equivalent to the DSLR camera sensor APS-C. Quite a bit of noise up to ISO 1,600 from ISO 200-400, the noise is hardly noticeable, except the zoom 100% in the dark.

As mirrorless camera / DSLR, NX3000 can also record images in RAW format for experienced photographers who want to process the photos you want and the style of each.

There are also some photo processing mode called Picture Wizard. Some of these modes are: standard, portrait, vivid, landscape, forest, retro, cool, calm, classic and three custom modes.

Also there is the function of the filter include: Miniature vinyeting, sketch, and fisheye. When shooting in contrasting light conditions such as when sunset and sunrise, no dynamic range expansion function and HDR mode.

In the system, including the Samsung NX is still new and currently has 15 lenses are compatible with Samsung NX3000. One of them is the lens S (Superior) for professional photographers. There are many lenses that need to be made by Samsung, especially the lenses are of high quality / pro.

Some lenses that I recommend for NX3000 besides 16-50mm f / 2.8 include: Samsung 60mm f / 2.8 Macro OIS SSA for close-up / macro, Samsung 50-200mm OIS f / 4-5.6 for the photo subject is much like sports , wildlife, candid, Samsung 12-24mm f / 4-5.6, a wide lens for scenery, and the 85mm f / 1.4 for portrait photos.

Compared to the Samsung NX300 camera, which was launched last year, the NX3000 is slightly smaller and lighter, more affordable, its LCD screen can be folded upwards.

While the NX300 has an advantage in a sharper LCD screen and touchscreen. Image quality between the two similar-similar.
