• 8 Great Android Features That iOS Fails to Offer

    Posted on June 27th, 2016 admin | No comments

    As a iPhone user, do you really think that your iOS device performs better than Andriod device? If yes, think again! There are at least eight Android features that your iOS device cannot provide, from automatic power-saving mode and installing apps from the web to smarter keypad shortcuts and the ability to clear storage-hogging app caches with a single tap.

    1. Gesture typing for the stock keypad

    Although iOS has allowed third-party keyboards with swipe-to-type capabilities for a few years, non-Apple keypads tend to grow sluggish, fail to appear, or even crash altogether on iPhone.

    gesture-typing-stock-keypad

    The stock Android keyboard, on the other hand, has long supported gesture typing (just tap Settings > Language & input > Virtual keyboard > Google Keyboard > Gesture typing), making it a compelling choice for any Android device. Why Apple won’t add gesture typing support to the stock iOS keypad is a head-scratcher, for sure.

    2. Number and symbol shortcuts visible on every key

    Speaking of the Android keypad, here’s another clever feature that, once you turn on, you’ll never turn off: the ability to display number and symbol “hints” on every key (Settings > Language & input > Virtual keyboard > Google Keyboard > Preferences > Long press for symbols).

    number-and-symbol-shortcuts-on-keys

    For example, you can opt to have the Android keypad show tiny numbers in the top corner of every letter key in the top row; just long-press one of those keys to type the number rather than the letter.

    Meanwhile, other keys on the keypad boast hints for symbols that are usually hidden until you tap the symbol key, such as the “@” sign in the corner of the “a” key and the dollar sign over the “d” key.

    Those number and symbol “hints” come in handy when you’re trying to tap out a quick message, and they’re sorely lacking on the stock iOS keypad.

    3. Auto battery-saver mode

    One of the smarter Android features in the past few years is its Battery saver setting (Settings > Battery > Battery saver), which turns off background app activity, automatic email fetching, and other battery-draining activities, perfect for conserving battery power when your device is about to run out of juice. Apple wisely followed suit with its own low-power mode, which made its debut with iOS 9.

    auto-battery-saver-mode

    Unfortunately, the iOS version of battery-saver mode is missing a crucial component of its Android counterpart: a setting that turns on low-power mode automatically once your battery meter falls below a certain level.

    On Android devices, you can set the battery saver feature to snap on the moment your remaining battery power falls below 15 percent or 5 percent. With iOS, on the other hand, lower-power mode must be turned on manually, although at least you’re prompted to turn it on once your iPhone’s battery level falls below 20 percent.

    4. Install apps from the web

    Apple’s App Store changed the game when it arrived on the scene back in the early days of the iPhone, but in many ways, it seems to be standing still. My biggest frustration with the App Store: It’s best browsed from an iOS device rather than the web.

    install-apps-from-web

    The Google Play app store, on the other hand, works quite nicely in a desktop web browser—and best of all, you can install apps remotely over the web.

    With iOS, the closest you can get is to click the Get button in the App Store on iTunes, which only adds the app to your iCloud app library. To install the app, you’ll still need to search your app library on your iOS device and download it manually.

    5. Turn on “Do not disturb” for just an hour

  • The Latest Android Rumor Roundup

    Posted on July 16th, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    More and more Android rumors and reports keep on pouring in recently, and there are some big announcements around the corner. Many much-anticipated phones have been hiding in the smoke of rumors for a long time. This post gathers the top rumors in the Android space which includes Droid series, Moto X, Refreshed HTC One and LG’s next smartphone.

    Motorola X Phone


    After months of rumors and wild speculation, the Moto X project could ultimately result in a smartphone with midrange specifications. Details leaked a device with a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, a 720p HD OLED display, 16GB internal storage, and a 10-megapixel rear camera. It is certainly underpowered when compared to today’s top Androids. This upcoming Motorola Moto X smartphone might be taking voice assistance to the next level by making it possible to control your device without ever touching it. The ballyhooed Moto X could arrive as soon as August 23.

    Motorola Droid Ultra, Droid MAXX, Droid Mini


    Motorola has definitely been working on a new range of smartphones, and lately there has been a lot of buzz regarding these handsets – Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini. It has been speculated that the Droid Mini will be a “refreshed” Motorola Droid RAZR M, with the MAXX and Ultra being updated versions of last year’s Motorola Droid RAZR HD MAXX and RAZR HD respectively. They are boasting Kevlar encasing, which helps not only durability but also keeping the weight in check. Motorola decided to ditch the on-screen software buttons over three Android-specific capacitive buttons placed blow the display.

    The new Droid Maxx should come with a battery that has even greater capacity. There are sources saying that the Motorola Droid Ultra will also have great battery stamina. Reports indicate that the flagship terminal of the Droid line-up will be able to stay awake for about 48 hours. As a release date of August 8 is shown for the Droid Ultra, it’s also likely that other Droids in the lineup will be launched at the same time, as happened last year.

    LG Optimus G2


    For LG enthusiast who are looking to buy a 2013 flagship phone from the manufacturer. The Optimus G2 is a very good choice. LG has confirmed that the upcoming ‘G’ series smartphone will employ Qualcomm’s blazing-fast Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, 2GB RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a full HD display of 5 inches or larger. LG Optimus G2 is rumored to arrive on August 7.

    Refreshed HTC One


    The HTC One packs in powerful features and is undoubtedly one of the most popular Android smartphones around, but a recent report suggests that HTC may further bump up the specifications with the launch of an updated version. A refreshed version of the HTC One may arrive later in 2013. Details could include a faster and more powerful Snapdragon 800 processor as opposed to today’s Snapdragon 600. It also is rumored to pack in the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead of the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean found on the HTC One.

  • Top 5 Best New Dual SIM Android Smartphones

    Posted on May 31st, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    Phones that can maintain two carrier network connections at once have been around for a while, but haven’t seen mass adoption anywhere but emerging markets, where those are very, very popular. So popular that there are local brands you’ve never heard of that make boatloads of them.

    The reasons they haven’t been very popular in developed markets are the usual lengthy contracts carriers here shackle you with, and the fact that they’ve mainly been feature phones so far. As everything else in the mobile world, the recent onslaught of dual SIM phones with Android is about to change the perception about those humble work horses that let you balance two network connections simultaneously.

    If you want to take advantage of two good carrier plans at once, use one number for family and friends and another for work, or simply can’t resist that great new data plan, but your contract still has mileage left in it, a decent dual SIM phone might come to the rescue, and, with Android, you don’t have to sacrifice on apps and features anymore, too.

    That’s why we’ve rounded up a few freshly announced brand-name dual SIM Android handsets in the slideshow below to help with your choice when one Subscriber Identity Module just won’t cut it. All of these with maybe the exception of the HTC Desire 600, should be hovering in the sub-$300 price range without a contract, making them very affordable, too.

    Acer Liquid E2

    Acer-Liquid-E2

    We found the dual SIM quad-core Liquid E2 to be fast, with a good 8 MP camera capable of 1080p video and almost stock Android 4.2, in addition to its other virtues like a 4.5″ qHD display and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. These make it the best spec’d dual SIM phone out there. Chassis design could be slimmer, but for less than $300 without a contract we’ll let it slide.

    Samsung Galaxy Win

    Samsung-Galaxy-Win

    Looking as just another Galaxy phone from Samsung, the Win can house two SIM cards in dual active mode. Samsung Galaxy Win has a 4.7″ 480 x 800 Super AMOLED display, which sets it a wonderful media player to watch HD movies, a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 5 MP rear camera, VGA up front, 8 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, and a decent 2000 mAh battery. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean rounds up the pretty offering.

    LG Optimus L7 II

    LG-Optimus-L7-II

    The LG Optimus L7 II is a mid-ranger meant for developing markets where the dual SIM feature is hugely appreciated. It arrives for a relatively affordable price of $280 off contract (280 euro in Europe), right at the start of the mid-range segment. It is easy to like for its just-right-size 4.3-inch screen, great dual-SIM implementation and huge battery, as well as for its nice and functional Optimus skin.

    HTC Desire 600

    htc-desire-600

    The Desire 600 offers that little something to stand out in the otherwise mundane world of dual SIM Android phones. It features dual front stereo speakers with BoomSound, like the flagship HTC One, a 4.5-inch Super LCD2 display with 960 x 540 resolution, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor, and 8 MP rear camera recording 720p video. HTC’s BlinkFeed news and social aggregator will also be present.

    Samsung Galaxy Core

    Samsung-Galaxy-Core

    The Samsung Galaxy Core is a lower mid-range model with a 4.3″ WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It will come in a Dual SIM variant, where the two SIM card slots will be able to remain active simultaneously. The Galaxy Core will come with the TouchWiz Nature UX and all of its useful features like Smart Stay, S Voice and Smart Alert, with the last one alerting you to missed calls and messages once you pick the phone up.

  • 5 Best Android Smartphones to Get for 2013 Spring

    Posted on May 3rd, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    With the approaching of hot summer season, we have to say goodbye to spring. You may want to get a new smartphone to replace your old fashioned smartphone to welcome the new season. If so, this is the right place you should go. Some of the biggest phone manufacturers have just released their brand new 2013 flagship devices, just like Sony and Samsung, who recently released their widely welcomed smartphones, and it just so happens that all of them run on Android. As a tradition, Apple’s iPhone gets a refresh much later in the year, not in spring, and the same goes for Windows Phone. So, the only choice seems to be Android smartphones.

    Now, the question goes to what kind of Android smartphones you should choose. Without comparison, it is really hard to pick out the answer, as so many Android smartphones are on the market for your option. To make it easy for you to pick up your device, we have listed our top five picks for new Android devices that are already available or coming in just a couple of days. Take a look at them below to decide which one you need.

    Your No. 1 choice – Samsung Galaxy S 4

    Samsung Galaxy S 4

    Samsung didn’t exactly catch us by surprise with the Galaxy S4. However, it’s the flawless implementation of all the features that makes the Galaxy S4 the superb smartphone that it is. Design-wise, the latest Samsung flagship is nothing special. It looks OK and is comfortable to hold. We’re more than happy to see that Samsung has managed to make the smartphone even smaller than the GS III, which is a remarkable achievement, considering the bigger screen.

    No. 2 – HTC One

    HTC One

    HTC wanted a comeback and it brought its best with the HTC One. It is a brilliant device in virtually every aspect. Coming with a beautiful aluminum body that fits almost organically in the hand, it has a great and vivid, extremely sharp 4.7-inch screen. The stereo front speaker bring a small revolution in smartphone sound that you’ll appreciate instantly when you hear it. Performance is flawless on the new Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip.

    No. 3 – Sony Xperia Z

    Sony Xperia Z

    The Sony Xperia Z was the first 2013 flagship. It was the first of many more with a 5-inch 1080p display, but while we were disappointed with the quality of that screen, the device had one more ace up its sleeve – it was water and dust resistant. With the thought of summer, beaches and swimming, and the possibility to take the Xperia Z with you wherever you go (you can also shoot videos and images underwater), we are very tempted to get it. The handset also has a decent 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera that performs well in low light.

    No. 4 – Nexus 4

    Nexus 4

    The Nexus 4 might have launched a few months ago but it only recently started shipping in volume on the Google Play store. Most importantly, though, it has remained extremely competitive in price. It’s a compact and practical decision. It has a 4.7-inch 720p screen and realistically looking it is almost impossible to justify a 1080p display on a phone, so that’s definitely not a flaw. What’s more the Nexus 4 is the first to get the latest Android updates, and the most affordable of all devices in this list.

    No. 5 – LG Optimus G Pro

    LG Optimus G Pro

    The LG Optimus G Pro is a brilliantly timed device. Coming nearly half a year after the Note II, it manages to take advantage and stuff in an extremely crisp 1080p 5.5-inch screen that is very vivid and impressive. The G Pro is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy the big screens it would offer a flawless performance and a great camera. Phablet lovers, this should be your choice this spring.

  • Three Giants Focus on NFC: Apple iPhone, Google Android Phones and MicroSoft Smart Phones

    Posted on March 30th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    NFCNFC, the Near Field Communication technology, has been a hot topic for all smart mobile phones users recently. Near Field Communication, or NFC, is a new type of electronic payment system that allows users to wave an NFC device over an NFC reader to purchase items. An NFC equipped smart phone would use this new technology as a safe and secure method of buying things at stores that were equipped with the reader. Smart phone users have long been anticipating this technology on smart phones for convenient and safe payment.

    The earliest rumors about NFC on smart mobile phone were about iPhone 5, which was greatly rumored to support NFC. However, now, another two giants in smart mobile phones are rumored to own this payment technology: Google Android phones and Microsoft smart phones, the WP 7.

    Along with the rumors that iPhone 5 would not adopt NFC due to the absence of NFC standard currently in the circle announced by Apple; users may have been unsure and may feel disappointed and long for a smart mobile phone to solve this problem. Google Android phones and Microsoft Windows smart phones in such conditions are rumored to own NFC-enabled smart mobile phones to compete with Apple iPhone. The negotiation between Google and Mastercard and Citigroup is still on the way for the NFC support, while Microsoft NFC-enabled WP7 only shows a hint for public.

     Although NFC-enabled WP7 devices could arrive as early as this year, Microsoft will likely continue to play catch up with Apple and Google, as both industry heavyweights are reportedly planning to debut NFC smart phones in the very near future. So, let’s just wait to see the latest news about this.
