Hearing aid apps for Android

Tonight I encountered an unexpected question: my dad asked me if I had any experience with hearing aid apps for phones. I had to tell him that I didn’t even know such things existed! After a bit of thought and research it became quite obvious that such apps would be quite useful. Unfortunately, most Android app suffer from a plethora of issues that prevent them from actually being very useful for the hearing impaired 🙁 However, there are a few

LG G Pad 8.3 GPE vs. iPad Mini Retina vs. Google Nexus 7 FHD

Santa Claus brought an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition tablet early this years. To me the display is perhaps the most important aspect of a tablet, so here is a how it stacks up versus some competitors: Tablet Model Release Date Diagonal Screen Size Total Screen Area (Dimensions) Resolution Aspect Ratio Pixels Per Inch (PPI)  LG G Pad 8.3 2013 8.3″ 30.96 square inches (7″x4.4″) 1920×1200 16:10 (8:5) 272.79 Apple iPad Mini (2nd Generation) 2013 7.9″ 29.96 square inches

Nexus 7 FHD (2013) vs GPad 8.3 vs iPad Mini

LG is preparing to release their new G Pad 8.3 Android tablet with a nice 1920×1200 resolution, of course Google’s new 1920×1080 Nexus 7 has been out for a while now and Apple’s iPad Mini is looking absolutely outdated. Both resolutions on the Android tablets are are very nice, but how about screen area and actual PPI: Manufacturer and model name Year introduced Screen size Screen area Resolution Ratio PPI Google Nexus 7 (2013) 2013 7″ 20.94 square inches (6.1″x3.4″)

New Google Nexus 7 Hands On (2013 edition)

Yesterday while stopping into Best Buy I was surprised to see a new Nexus 7 in the tablet section. After playing with the device for a while I came away unimpressed. It is a solid device 🙂 but the screen was not as overwhelmingly good as I expected 🙁 Perhaps the biggest problem for me was that my Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s display actually seemed brighter and it was also not that much smaller than the Nexus7: Google Nexus 7 (2013) 2013
