SAMSUNG S3 for Rs. 38000 …My Latest Crush…

I hate losing an argument, specially to my husband. Though he is a sensible man who is capable of exercising budgetary restraint (and vehemently preaches the same specially when I go jewellery shopping with his credit card), however when it comes to gadgets there are times when he is downright irrational!! Our most recent pother was during evening tea when he started hinting about buying yet another smartphone.  After a half an hour’s parley he convinced me that our smart phones were not smart enough. A smartphone should be much more than just a 5 megapixel camera coupled to the plethora of applications which we seldom use, it should be coherent to our lifestyles and an extension of our personality.  And if you are wondering what phones we use, it wouldn’t be fair to divulge any details, especially the name because all said and done, they’ve served us well and we did love them at some point of time!

But they say that change is inevitable, we decided to hunt for a phone that would make our frenzied lives easier, a phone which was faster, smarter, capable of replacing our laptops and most importantly ergonomic.

After much looking around we stumbled upon a phone which seemed custom made for our requirements and my husband instantly named it – the King of Kings, the phone was Samsung Galaxy S3. There are no two ways about it that the latest offering from Samsung absolutely blew my mind too. So, without further ado let’s take a look at one of the best offering from Samsung’s arsenal this season:

Samsung Galaxy S3 is unbelievably smooth thanks to its 1.4GHz Exyno 4, quad-core which lets you slide through its interface seamlessly. The mighty quad core processor makes multi tasking a breeze so much so that you can play a video while messaging or editing a document simultaneously. The trump card of S3 is its 8 megapixel camera cum video recorder, so the  next time you come back from that exotic vacation, not only do you have HD photos but also the full length 1080p HD videos to re- live the experience.

Samsung understands that smart phone users are looking for a comfort level that goes beyond the features and applications which is exactly why the S3 comes with a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen (1,280×720 pixels) imparting sheer brilliance to the display and touch and feel of the phone an absolute delight.

The S3 will be launched in two colors -marble white and pebble blue. For me, both the colors work really well as they are neutral yet luxurious. The white version is shiny plastic with  silver enunciations adding  a premium touch to it on the other hand the “pebble blue” color is a clear winner owing to its gray overtones and brushed finish.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 also has a 1.9 megapixel front- facing camera which by the way is the best in its class till date and enhances the video chatting experience like never before.

Like any other Andriod, the S3 comes stuffed with applications but the app which absolutely floored me was the S Voice, Samsung’s answer to Siri. It works as promised, doing things like fetching the maps, weather forecasts, making calls, controls volume and so on…

So basically the Samsung Galaxy S3 is smart phones which actually got SMARTER and I for one am sold . But it still doesn’t change the fact that I hate losing arguments to my husband.

Why Nokia Lumia 920 Scores Over Apple iPhone 5?

Nokia Lumia 920 vs. Apple iPhone 5I love writing. And the best part about my job is getting hands on to the latest devices, even before they hit the market shelves. Getting my hands on both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5 was like receiving two pies from the sky, in my favorite flavor. Both the phones felt great, and I was happily wondering about the discriminating choices we got- all with latest technology, updated apps, and innovative features.

Both the inventive devices gave me the flexibility of either using iOS 6 platform or Windows Phone 8 operating system. Both of them support 4G LTE. To make options clear for you, I am penning down the pros and cons of both the smartphones’ specifications. Going by my personal choice, I feel the Nokia Lumia 920 scores high over the Apple’s iPhone 5. Read on to know why.

Since the introduction of Lumia smartphones, Nokia has not been leaving a single opportunity to show people that their device is way better than Apple’s iPhone 5 and considering some of its reasoning, I do agree.

To start, let’s consider the screen size

Apple hugely publicized its iPhone 5 to have a 4-inch screen, bigger than any of its predecessors. But then obviously, there’s Samsung S3 in the market with a bigger screen size of 4.8-inch. However, back to Lumia 920, the device has a 4.5-inch screen with PureMotion HD and a WXGA IPS LCD and a ClearBack display. Thumbs up for Lumia? Also getting down to pixels, the Lumia boasts of 1280×768 pixels resolution with 326 ppi and iPhone 5 has resolution of 1136×640 pixels with 332 ppi. I am leaving the calculations to you.

Coming down to design

Apple’s iPhone 5 looks great with a sleek body made of aluminum and glass. Added to this device is an additional row of icons on the homepage to fiddle with. On the opposite side, the Nokia Lumia 920 is more colorful with choices of yellow, red, white, black or grey body, so the look is more customized here. I got a red one and it does stand out in looks.

Next in line, camera

A flashy camera completes the picture and for these two phones, it is a tough call. The Nokia Lumia 920 boasts of an 8.7 megapixel rear PureView camera with 1.2 pixels at the front. On the other side, the iPhone 5 has an 8 megapixel camera, which also lets me take pics while I shoot videos. So on camera front, both the devices are in A-front.

Now, wireless charging

The Nokia Lumia 920 comes packed with a special charging pod, making charging a completely tangle free process. Apple’s lightning connector is also the latest and can be inserted upside down. But Nokia’s charging pod is the catch here.

The User Interface

Both the smartphones are easy-to-use and have simple sensitive interface. But in this case too, Nokia takes the lead. The Nokia PureView is great. It has everything including fingertips, fingernails, gloves, and everything else. Surely, Nokia has the technology, whereas Apple doesn’t.

Considering all features, even though Apple has managed to sell over 2 million iPhone 5 devices so far, there’s no doubt that the competition out there is tough. Nokia has all its hopes set to win the smartphone market with its Lumia series and considering all the pros, the phone surely leans me towards it more.

So which one do you prefer? Share your comments with us.… Read the rest

Hands On iPhone5: It Was Almost Like Bumping Into My Superhero From The Big Screen

Writing about iPhone 5 last few weeks was fun and laying hands on the actual device was even better. It was almost like bumping into my superhero from the big screen. Standing in the long queue was totally worth it!

To start, not only could I relate my writings with the device, but it also sounded a lot more familiar.

Also I was smiling and was happy about joining the league of proud owners of an iPhone 5 with the latest iOS 6.

So, for those who stayed unsuccessful in grabbing the device the day-one, I could help solve the mystery by listing down some of the answers to your questions.

The world’s long-awaited iPhone 5 is surely a lot thinner, lighter, and brighter. Apple gave birth to A6 chip in its latest offering. The firm heavily marketed claiming iPhone 5 to be faster than the iPhone 4S. I kept both the phones on the same wavelength and tapped on to download the same data on the same Wi-Fi. And my latest iPhone 5 did download the webpage few seconds faster than the 4S. So the iPhone 5 surely stays ahead of 4S in terms of speed boost.

The only shortcome this phone got is in its new mapping app, which replaces the Google Maps. But that is okay for me as I don’t really rely much on maps apps.

Watching videos on iPhone 5 is also a lot clearer and smoother. Swapping in between apps is also quick and instant in it. The glass at the front looks strong, though the device is light. Apple claims it to be scratch resistant and I am hoping it will be durable as many users out there have already taken the drop test. I didn’t really try the drop test. Well, to be honest- couldn’t!

The phone has aluminum encasing, which does look prone to scratches as it makes the phone too light. So, I suggest it’s better to get a stylish cover that goes well with the device.

The 4-inch screen looks slightly bigger than the 4S’s 3.5-inch display. The display till the edges does give it a bigger look. But that doesn’t compromise on the comfort level. The phone has a good grip and is easy to balance.

Features such as enhanced camera and better handling of apps do make iPhone 5 a better choice. And about the new lighting connector that came along, it is definitely smaller, but doesn’t really charge the device any faster. Both the 4S and iPhone 5 took the same time to fully charge. The only thing that I liked about this charger was that it could be used upside-down.

One another notable difference, which I am sure all users will notice, is the quality or clarity of voice while making calls. The iPhone 5 got a very good speaker clarity, which is detectable while making calls, watching videos or listening to music.

This phone is surely a sleeker and smarter choice than its predecessor- the 4S.
