Samsung Galaxy S3 Vs Motorola Droid Razr Vs Amazon Kindle: The Cream Of Android

Given the plethora of devices that draws sustenance from Android it is time we do a quick take on the devices that rank high our list in terms of popularity.

  • Samsung Galaxy S3- With the world feeding out of Samsung Galaxy S3’s hands, Android perhaps received the highest boost from the S3. No wonder it accounts for 14 per cent of the Android market in USA.
  •  failed to give us an amazing phone but lapped up fans enough to escalate Android to the top tier of the popularity charts. The Droid atleast gained spot on some list atleast, sigh!
  • Locking horns with smartphones is a tablet that has catapulted the popularity of Android to the top of charts. Amazon Kindle Fire helped Android grab slightly more than 3 percent of the share in the Android niche.

A flood of other devices pumped with Android account for the popularity of the operating system. With names such as Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and Lime Pie, the operating system evokes tasteful memories.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs. Nokia Lumia 920 vs. HTC One X+: Take Your Pick?

The present day consumer has a plethora of options before him, and naturally would be bound to get confused. If you’re window shopping for a brand new smartphone and are unsure of which one to get for yourself, here’s where you’ll find all the information you need to make the right decision. We take a look today at the flagship models of Samsung, Nokia and HTC on offer and break down the pros and cons of each of their features to make your life a little simpler.

The Software: All these phones are on top of their game, running the latest versions of their respective OS. While the Lumia 920 will run on the latest Windows Phone 8, the Galaxy Note 2 and One X+ run on the latest version of Android – the Jelly Bean.

The Hardware: Now this is where it gets really exciting to compare these 3 phones. The Lumia 920 is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, but the Galaxy Note 2 is almost twice as powerful, with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The HTC One X+ has also received a processor upgrade in comparison with its predecessor, the One X – this new phone comes with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It’s meant for heavy multitasking, we doubt if the Lumia 920 can match up to the other 2 phones.

In terms of memory, the HTC One X+ comes in 2 variants of 32GB and 64GB, while the Lumia 920 has 32GB of internal memory. Neither of these phones are equipped with SD card slots, so you’ll have to make do with the limited memory available internally. But if storage is a big concern for you, the Galaxy Note 2 is equipped with 64GB of internal memory and even has an SD card slot for additional storage requirements.

The Looks: The Lumia 920 sports a 4.5 inch LCD screen, while the HTC One X+ has a slightly bigger 4.7 inch S-LCD2 display. But if size really does matter, the Galaxy Note 2 is your answer, sporting a gorgeous 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display.

The Cameras: Both the HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have an 8MP auto-focus rear camera with an LED flash. The Nokia Lumia 920 has a slightly better 8.7MP camera with a dual-LED flash for taking clearer pictures even in low light conditions. In terms of the front-facing cameras, the Lumia 920 has a 1.3MP camera, while the One X+ has a 1.6MP front-facing camera. Taking it a notch higher is the Galaxy Note 2’s front facing camera with a resolution of 1.9MP.

The Batteries: When it comes to finding the right smartphone, it’s not just about the technical features, but also about its battery life. Fortunately, these ultra-powerful phones are equipped with high power batteries to keep them running for at least a full day on a single charge. The Lumia 920 has a 2000 mAh battery, the One X+ has a 2100mAh battery, and the jumbo sized Galaxy Note 2 has a corresponding 3100 mAh battery for letting it run for ample amount of time, no matter how many apps you run on it.… Read the rest

HTC One X+ vs HTC One X: Make Way For Evolution

 

HTC One X+ is the newbie on the block and we are luring after it.Why? Well, HTC One X+ is a near to perfect Android phone. The premium looking flagship  phone of HTC, One X+ is a lethal combination of LTE capabilities of One XL and quad-core processor of One X

What We Love About it:

In terms of look HTC One X+ is no different than its predecessor HTC One X. Now the question here is how it is different from One X. Well as compared to One X’s 1800mAh battery ,X+ has  the power of 2 100mAH batteries. Needless to say, the phone need a gigantic battery to support its LTE capabilities.

HTC One X came loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich where as HTC One X+ runs on Jelly bean (Andriod 4.1). When you see most of the Andriod phones around you running on Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean brings a fresh whiff of air.

Now you must be wondering what about One X+ sensing capabilities, well it comes with incredible HTC sense 4 and dubbed Sense 4+. The deal breaker here is the ‘ Self Portrait’ mode of the front camera and the ‘Sightseeing mode of the rear 8-megapixel camera which makes for a great photography experience.

One X+ gives you loads of space to keep your movies , music and data. Thanks to its 64 GB onboard storage.

What we don’t love about it:

We wanted more in terms of looks, more than what One X was giving us. It could have been made into a bigger and slimmer Smartphone specially when you have competitors like Samsung S3 and iPhone5 which are literally ruling the smartphone market.

Wan’t to access the ‘ “thousands of movies” on your X+  with your HTC Watch 2.0 when  in Asia, chances are you have would not be able to enjoy the movie time as HTC is still struggling to bring movie content to HTC fans in Asia.… Read the rest

Move over Ice Cream Sandwich – the Jelly Bean, is Here!

The world got a sneak peek into the latest Android 4.1 or the Jelly Bean at Google’s I/O developer conference held June 27 and 29, 2012. And boy, have we already begun lusting after it. Set to be the fastest, smoothest Android OS yet, you can expect to find the Jelly Bean in the upcoming Nexus series and the Motorola Xoom, which is expected to be launched mid-July. Some may say that Android’s latest offering comes a tad too soon as most of the handsets haven’t even moved on to the Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich update. At that, Google is quick to remark that this is just an incremental update to the ICS version.

Google Now: Google Now is probably the most exciting upgrade you get to see in the Jelly Bean. It combines information about your location, your e-mail history, your search history and your calendar to intuitively identify what you may be looking for and when you would need it. For instance, Google Now can tell you how long it will take for you to reach your destination based on traffic and weather conditions. Unfortunately, you will need to wait a little longer until it is perfected, for it doesn’t always work flawlessly.

Type better: Jelly Bean’s design incorporates a little extra something that Google has codenamed Project Butter. With the intention to improve Android’s performance, the aptly named experiment really helps make Android’s working so much more fluid, smooth, and faster. To start with, it features a more enhanced version of the predictive keyboard that the ICS had, only this one throws out more relevant word suggestions on the screen as you type. The updated keyboard will even familiarize itself with your typing style and adapt to automatically correct your common typos by suggesting the right words for you. The keyboard experience is going to be a lot similar to the Swiftkey one, except that for now you may no longer need the Switfkey with the Jelly Bean’s stock keyboard.

Talk to the phone: Like the Siri, Jelly Bean too comes with voice searching capabilities. It searches through Google’s knowledge search and produces far more detailed answers than Siri manages. With the Jelly Bean, you can even perform voice typing without connecting to the internet. The offline voice typing feature lets you talk to the phone and have it convert your words into text for better typing. Highly accurate, for now it only works in English, but Google has promised us additional languages soon.

Do more: Android Beam also gets updated in the Jelly Bean version, letting you share pictures and videos between phones using NFC technology. The previous version of the Android Beam in the ICS only lets you share apps, web pages, contacts and directions. Another really cool feature of the Jelly Bean is that it lets you resize your widgets to suit your needs. You’ll no longer be frustrated about a widget hogging too much of your screen space, not leaving enough space for anything else. Notifications are more intuitive in the Jelly Bean, allowing you to expand or collapse each notification directly from the notifications tray and directly providing you with a list of actions you can take. For example, a message or call back on the number you get a missed call from.

With a host of great features to make your smart phone or tablet function more friendly, Android 4.1 is just what was needed to keep Google at the top of the list. However, for now, Android 4.1 is only available on those phones that were shipped with Android 4.0. Will most of the Android phones running Gingerbread benefit? Only time shall tell.
