LAS VEGAS -- At CES 2016, we kept a close eye on new tech trends and devices as they make their way into the spotlight. Home automation, connected cars, and wearable healthcare technology were core themes of show -- an indication that auto innovation and smart appliances will be key for the consumer space in the coming year.

But while these trends certainly had a major presence on the show floor, we would be remiss to ignore the PCs, tablets, hybrids, and smartphones that consumers continue to use daily as the technologies of the future take shape. There was certainly a bounty of mobile devices on display at the show.

RMB 3,500 for a Letv Max Pro
I watched a video and I read about the specs of the Letv Max Pro. It's a very beautiful and powerful phone. Being the first with the 820, it's certainly a phone to consider. But I also read that it will cost around $500 in China. Probably more in the US. So, I think I'll pass.
