Apple iPad 2: It is considered as one of the best in the category in the present scenario as a result of its sheer amount of power in a compact frame.

Apple iPad Mini 2 Vs Apple iPad Mini: Apple’s Brave New World Is Getting Smaller And Smarter

Apple’s 8-inch tablet did make quite an impact when it was launched last year, and Apple’s already gotten busy designing its successor. If you’re among those waiting eagerly to know what’s next in store in the world of iPad Minis, well, here’s a roundup of all the rumors we’ve heard about this little tablet so far.

In terms of screen size, we doubt if much is going to change – the iPad Mini 2 could also have a 7.9-inch screen. But yes, Apple might put in its famous Retina Display technology into it, giving it a higher resolution of up to 324 ppi. As with all successors, we’re hoping to see a more powerful iPad Mini 2, possibly with an Apple A5X processor or maybe even an A6 processor. There could even be a brand new processor in the new tablet, maybe an A7 dual-core one.

The iPad Mini 2 could have a camera with an iSight feature, which means it could be more than the current version’s 5 MP offering. With this, the iPad Mini 2 could possibly record videos at 1080p resolution. The battery life is also expected to improve, with some sources expecting at least 10 hours on a single charge.

But the biggest rumor surrounds the iOS. Given that it hasn’t really changed significantly ever since it first came out, we’re expecting Apple to redesign the OS and give it a new look and feel. With it, expect a new iTunes too. And when it comes to storage, we wonder if it will go up to 128 GB in the iPad Mini 2.

There was a lot of speculation that Apple was planning to launch the iPad Mini 2 sometime this month. But maybe because it’s busy trying to launch the iPhone 5S sooner, we’ll have to wait just a little longer for the next iPad Mini. Possibly by October 2013, we can expect the iPad Mini 2 to be launched by Apple.

One of the biggest peeves we had with Apple was the rather high pricing of the iPad Mini, especially when its competitors were priced nearly half as less. But with Retina Display, the iPad Mini 2 can only get pricier, so be prepared to shell out more.… Read the rest

Nokia Lumia 720 Vs Sony Xperia Neo L: Would You Rather Go For An Affordable Windows Phone Masterpiece?

Nokia unveiled two new affordable Windows Phone based smartphones at the MWC 2013, and both were quite well received. Given that price has been one of the biggest advantages of Android so far, having taken it to become the most popular smartphone OS, can Nokia turn things around in the favor of Windows Phone 8 with these reasonably priced smartphones? We’re pitting the Nokia Lumia 720 against the Sony Xperia neo L to see how well it can fare against an Android-based smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 720: The Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 800X480 pixels. Powered by a dual-core 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, it runs on Windows Phone 8. The phone is fitted with a 6.7 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. We also love that it comes with 8 GB of internal storage space which you can expand up to 64 GB using the microSD card slot. The Lumia 720 comes with a 2,000 mAh battery which gives it over 13 hours of talktime.

Sony Xperia neo L: First off, this is a smaller phone than the Lumia 720. It has just a 4-inch screen. In terms of power too, it’s lesser than Nokia’s offering – the Xperia neo L is powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. Another major downside of the phone is its mere 1 GB of internal storage space, which can be expanded using a microSD card to up to 32 GB. The Xperia neo L doesn’t have much camera power in comparison either – just a 5 MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP camera in the front. The battery too is smaller in the Xperia neo L – just 1,500 mAh that gives the phone a talktime of over 7 hours.

We still don’t know how much the Lumia 720 will be priced at. It has amazing specs, but we’re just hoping that Nokia prices it in a similar range as the Xperia neo L to make the phone a real bestseller.

Immense Anti Apple iPhone 5 Appeal:A Leak That Makes Us Go Starry Eyed At The Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV

A little over a week to go until we see the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Nevertheless, hold on, how could leaks not surfacing with such a great event lined up?  This time we got a snippet of the Galaxy avatar from the very bankable source @evleaks.

From this rendition, we gather that this latest baby from Samsung bids goodbye to the home button and all capacitive buttons at that! Moreover, the shape has gone rectangular. Now we wonder why leaked cases for the device matched this shape.

With a 5-inch screen, we might just get another Super AMOLED and complete HD tag attached to it. If the leaked specs could be true, the 13 MP shutter would surely woo.

Add to that 2GB RAM, varied storage in 34, 32 and 16 GB; the Android 4.2 pumped phone would be a sexy thing to own.… Read the rest

Apple i phone 5S vs Samsung Galaxy S4: Would The Upcoming iPhone 5S Give The Shakes To The Samsung Galaxy S3 Successor

Apple faced a lot of flak from even its most loyal customers when it unveiled the iPhone 5 last year with the same 4-inch screen. Many analysts say that this was one of the main reasons why the iPhone 5 didn’t do as well as its predecessors, helping its archrival Samsung’s Galaxy S3 gain more and more popularity.

However, according to the latest rumors, a Japanese report has stated that Apple will launch the iPhone 5S in 2014, this time with a bigger 4.5-inch screen. This new phone will also come with a polycarbonate casing, which could make the phone thicker but more durable than the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S will also have dual-LED, but it will be placed one on top of the other to the right of the lens.

This is just the latest in a long list of rumors we’ve been hearing about what Apple has in store for us next. Previously, we had heard about Apple making a 4.8-inch iPhone Math, and another one about an iPhone in the works with a 12 MP camera. But across many of these rumors, there is consistency regarding the processor – many are saying that the iPhone 5S will be powered by the A7 processor. We’ve also heard that the iPhone 5S could come with a price tag of just $330.

If there is any truth in these rumors, we wonder if Apple will manage to impact Samsung Galaxy S4 sales. Samsung is all set to launch its latest flagship smartphone in less than a couple of weeks, and like the Galaxy S3, it is sure to have terrific specs and features. The Galaxy S4 is expected to have a 5-inch display, which is surely larger than the rumored iPhone 5S. Also, given that the iPhone 5S is expected to launch only next year, the Galaxy S4 will have ample time on its hands to make an impact and possibly go on to become the most popular smartphone of 2013.… Read the rest

Few years back, when we looked at the digital cameras we saw them all jabbed up and heavy. With time, cameras have metamorphosed onto sleek seductive gadgets like smartphones.

With Samsung in the game,  digital cameras come with  ‘smart’ technology’ that laces capture their users to shutter up precious moments and share them with friends instantly.

Samsung has recently launched the 3G Galaxy camera with all the ‘smart’ features like click’n share pictures. Although like other digital cameras, the Samsung Galaxy is a simple point and shoot device, its excellent performance and wonderful image-quality makes it an outstanding gadget to flaunt.

We wonder that any of the phones including Samsung Galaxy S3, Nokia Lumia 920 or the red hot BlackBerry Z10 would ever be upgraded to point to shoot camera?

Smart phones also lack in optical zoom feature that is a highlighting attribute in smart phone cameras. So, would it not be astounding to carry a smart camera along to make your ‘most important’ occasions the ‘most preserved’ events?… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Vs Sony Xperia Togari: Sony’s Whopping 6.44 inch Panel Has A Splendid Sartorial Taste

Sony has earned popularity as a leader with CES and consumers this season. However, it is still not in a mood to take chances and has been (supposedly) planning a large-screened Togari that comes with a whooping 6.44-inch panel.

This is part of an old leak legacy and we had been promised a pahblet/smartphone with a bezel that was almost not-visible, back then! Power-packed with 3,500 mAh battery and Snapdragon 800, Sony’s Togario could come with a stylus on lines of what Samsung offers on its Note installments.

We could get the Togari with IR blaster that would double as a remote control for electronic accessories from the giant. We trust Sony to deliver all their leaked promises- more than Samsung or Apple. The phablet could come with 2.3 GHz processor and be fed with sports Adreno 330 graphics. Video encoding could come at 30fps.

With so much on cards, the Samsung  Galaxy Note II could be stiff competition for Sony now.6.3 Super AMOLED FHD display packed in with processor of Exynos 5 Octa variant. Only Samsung comes laced with a RAM of lower capacity. Also we have heard rumors that Sony could offer an expandable SD-slot along with the waterproof tag.

Seems like the two S’s—Samsung and Sony could be in line for a fresh face-off!… Read the rest
