The rumor mills seem to be working overtime in keeping the buzz surrounding Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5S alive. The latest we’ve come across is some leaked pics claiming to be of this new iPhone, although, let’s be honest, we have our doubts. The images, which show a supposed curved screen, somehow resemble a Nokia Lumia 920, except with an Apple logo on the back. One of the biggest reasons to doubt the authenticity of these images is the change in design. Knowing Apple, it wouldn’t change the form factor in an S version. Take the iPhone 4S for instance – it looked the same as the iPhone 4, except with a few additional features. And then, the lack of the home button is also unconvincing, going by the same logic. The image does feature a pretty good looking phone, but we doubt if Apple would change the shape of its [+more]
Some of us thought that Nokia was all set to go on a long vacation but the Lumia 920 infused life back into the dormant company. Personally, I went wow on the Windows 8 phone from the Lumia lineup. It held its crown on head even when the iPhone 5 was round the corner. However, now I wonder if Nokia Lumia 920 would remain secure without slipping onto quicksand. Moreover, could we even call its competition that stares Lumia 920 in its face—HTC One, Blackberry Z10 and Samsung Galaxy S4. Give me a break. While industry analysts still believe that Nokia must not be so loyal to Microsoft and Windows 8. Does that mean Microsoft feeds Nokia in terms of innovation and development? Bleeding way to maintain a relationship! Stephen Elop, CEO, Nokia says, “There are moments where you fall short of expectations, you issue a profit warning, which causes [+more]
LG recently unveiled its flagship smartphone, the Optimus G Pro boasting of really fine specifications.

With the launch of its lineup of Windows Phone 8 based phones, Nokia was just about starting to taste some success in the highly competitive smartphone market. But, even though its flagship Lumia 920 was quite well received, would the recent launches of Android smartphones like LG’s Optimus G Pro and HTC’s One put a spoke in its ride to the top? HTC One: The most recently launched among the 3, HTC’s latest flagship sure does sound spectacular. Even though it has a relatively smaller 4.7-inch screen, its resolution of 468 ppi is the higher so far in the market. Add to that its powerful quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM which help the phone run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC’s improved Sense 5.0 UI, and you get even more impressed. And this is after you click on the phone – even its first glimpse is [+more]
When my wallet gets lighter with a new smartphone buy, I do weigh the camera story the buy comes with. However, this time I had to weigh HTC One, Google Nexus, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S III, Apple iPhone 5 and the Sony Xperia Z—yes, heave a sigh-the list is over! Weigh them? Actually, I needed to weigh the camera story for each. For starters, in an age that promises 13-MP cameras on smartphone users, HTC One has bucked the trend to house a mere 4.3-MP shutter. The quality is just fair but the high point is that smaller pictures could be wonderful with the One. Pegged against the giants that come with awesome shutter pixels, this might not go far. Check out the rest for clicks with each of these smarties. The settings were automatic on all phones and night mode for shoots for non-light conditions.HTC loses out [+more]

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. Now if you wonder what the difference between a smart phone with camera or a smart digital camera is, then hear this–Have you ever tried low-light photography with your smart phone? May be that was a sad experience for you because most smart phones are not smart enough to [+more]
If it is the Xperia Z for Sony and the Lumia 920 for Nokia, it probably will be the M7 for HTC. We’re talking about how the latest flagship models could help revive the former leaders and bring them up in the very competitive smartphone market. While the One X launched last year did have remarkable specs, it didn’t exactly help HTC earn too much of profits. Even though HTC was the first company to produce an Android smartphone, somewhere along the way, it lost out to players like Samsung. With every passing quarter, as new entrants arrive in the market with their Android smartphones, it’s only going to get tougher for this Taiwanese company to rise above the many competitors. But, we’re hoping that the M7 could be the perfect way to propel it forward. With spectacular features like a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, [+more]
So Nokia Lumia 920 hits the Indian market today for Rs 38,889, and it’s sure to become Nokia’s recent bestseller. But, if you’re still undecided on whether you want to jump in and pick one up for yourself, or wait for Sony’s Xperia Z to arrive, this is a must-read article for you. We’re pitting the Lumia 920 against Sony’s latest phablet, the Xperia Z, to see if it can match up to yet another Android device or will it sink in sales when the latter comes out. The OS: First off, let’s just say that Microsoft managed to do a pretty good job with the Windows Phone 8. It works quite smooth and is a far better interface than the previous Windows Phone 7. But then, Android 4.1 is also a huge improvement over the Android 4.0. Android is anyway the world’s most popular smartphone OS in the world, [+more]
