With the ability to measure radio performance, speech quality, display fidelity, battery life and more connect's reviews are based on verifiable facts and instead of the guesswork often in technical journalism.
All measurements and review results are stored in a product database. This enables connect to conduct fact driven comparisons between competing smartphones, tablets, notebooks and more. Additionally connect and its partner P3 communications conduct a highly acclaimed annually mobile network test in Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and UK to distiguish the good operators from the rest and to document advances in mobile network performance.
