Modern smartphone market offers an extremely wide variety of devices of different shapes, sizes, colors and technical configurations. In addition, it became quite popular to equip some solutions by protection against dust and moisture. A striking example is the top models Sony Xperia Z2 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Despite this, modern gadgets remain vulnerable even to minor mechanical effects, which require prudent care. While in most everyday scenario, it is quite possible, that in case of active life, sport or work under hazardous conditions (manufacturing, construction, mining, etc.) - it becomes extremely difficult. Protected smartphones offering increased resistance to external negative factors were created for such purposes. Typically, these devices cannot boast the best performance, which further limits the range of potential users. What would happen if such a protected case will have a considerable screen and efficient hardware platform combined with modern communication capabilities and technologies?

Sigma mobile X-treme PQ33

This will be described on the example of the flagship protected smartphone Sigma mobile X-treme PQ33, which is the embodiment of long-term developments of Sigma mobile. It has a considerable experience in producing safe devices (phones, smartphones and even tablets), which provide good performance in daily life and in the field. We offer an overview of trend start with technical specifications:

ASUS RT-N18U router review and testing

ASUS Company has a pretty serious player in the market of networking equipment. It is enough to look at the variety of devices produced under this brand in the stores. Moreover, the manufacturer pays equally great attention both home and corporate segments. To first one includes the routers of class N150, N300 and N450, and the second - N600, N900, AC1200 and more. Of course, this division is rather relative, and it all depends on the complexity of the organization of the network under certain conditions. However, this classification is simplifies the choice for the average user.

We did such remark, since most wireless equipment is aimed at mainstream users and complies with standards N150, N300 and N450. However, it should be understood that in such a fast-growing digital world, the devices that are currently ranked as traditional business segment, tomorrow can begin actively used in home. Therefore we try to give attention to more productive solutions. In particular, this report will be devoted to wireless router ASUS RT-N18U, which corresponds to the class of N600, that is, its maximum speed of data exchange via Wi-Fi can be up to 600 Mb/s.
