Preview: Nokia Lumia 625

Fans of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system have less choice in smartphones than their Android counterparts, so it’s always news when a new device arrives in Canada. Nokia’s Lumia line of smartphones set the standard for the Windows Phone experience and the Lumia 625 is set to raise the bar for value-priced Windows mobile devices. Improving on 2012’s Lumia 620, the 625 gains a faster Snapdragon CPU, bigger display, LTE compatibility and a leap in battery life. There are some compromises compared to the 620 (for example, NFC support has been dropped) but the Lumia 625 provides much of the experience of more expensive smartphones in a budget-friendly device. Expect to see it soon at Best Buy.

The Last of Us: Remastered for PS4!

It may arguably have been the best game to come out on the PlayStation 3, getting praise like it being the “Citizen Kane” of video games. It’s high praise, but the Last of Us was a very different and very special game at a time where we were craving something new, and something unique. Few games have made me think and react on the immediate consequences of my actions like this one did.  On July 29th, you’ll get the chance to re-live those memories on the PlayStation 4, when the Last of Us: Remastered debuts in glorious 1080p.  Come check out more and leave us some of your memories of this amazing game.

Samsung launches incredible summer bonus with select SUHD 4K TVs

 Summer is a glorious time to celebrate the beauty of Canada from coast to coast; for many of us that means indulging in the twin traditions of backyard barbecues and baseball. While going to the game is a luxury some of us can swing, it can be a tough drive from Montreal or Vancouver if you want to go see the Jays play. Samsung is coming to the plate with a new line-up of 4K TVs for summer…and they have something a little extra planned for grill fans as well.
