• Top smartphones duel – Samsung Galaxy S III vs Nokia Lumia 900

    Posted on June 27th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Nokia Lumia 900 has successfully established its fame in the last couple of months for the combination of its stellar design and killer $100 on-contract price. Just as anticipated, Nokia Lumia 900 has been considered as the best among all Windows Phone smartphones. But in the nowadays’ telecommunication industry, there never lacks of new challenges and competitors. And in the smartphone market, the new released and yet long anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, which comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE/HSPA+ 42 capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera, is undoubtedly a strong challenger to Nokia Lumia 900. Even though these two handsets are running on completely different platforms, we could make a comparison between them in various aspects to see which one is performing in all categories to come out on the top, including: appearance design, screen display, processor, memory, camera, multimedia, battery, connectivity, etc.

    Samsung Galaxy S III vs. Nokia Lumia 900

    Appearance design: We all know that the first impression makes a ton of differences. That’s the appearance design. Compared with Samsung Galaxy S III, which is technically lighter and thinner, Nokia Lumia 900 is original and fresh. Besides that, the unibody polycarbonate construction design of Lumia 900 feels considerably sturdier than Samsung Galaxy S III. In common, the two handsets feature capacitive buttons below their displays, though the Galaxy S III incorporates a physical home button. Other features Samsung Galaxy S III over Nokia Lumia 900 include: the physical buttons clinging around the sides, video-out functionality with the aid of a special MHL adapter, removable battery, and expandable memory via its microSD card slot.

    Screen display: This may become very easy for us to make comparison. The Samsung Galaxy S III has a quite noticable 4.8” HD (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED display, though, the Lumia 900’s 4.3” WVGA (480 x 800) ClearBlack AMOLED display is still nice and pretty. Obviously, you can enjoy better experience to watch videos on Samsung Galaxy S III or play games on Samsung Galaxy S III than that of Nokia Lumia 900.

    Processor: The Galaxy S III features a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with a whopping 2GB of RAM, while the Lumia 900 has single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with 512MB of RAM. This should indicate the former one should perform better. However, when it comes down to it, they perform very similar to one another, as every operation is accompanied with fluid movements and instantaneous actions.

    Memory: The Nokia Lumia 900 has the higher free storage capacity at 13.61GB, while Samsung Galaxy S III only gets 12.05GB. But the fact is that the latter offers expandable storage via its microSD card slot.

    Camera: Both smartphones feature an 8-megapixel camera, which provides quite similar still image quality for two devices. But in real test, the Galaxy S III is more capable at shooting in macro and low lighting. When coming to the HD video recording, Galaxy S III is obvious the winner with its 1080P video recording, distinct details, moderate exposure, clear audio recording, and neutral color reproduction.

    Multimedia: The Zune experience on the Lumia 900 manages to stand out more than the static presentation of the TouchWiz music player on Samsung Galaxy S III. But with a larger screen display, Samsung Galaxy S III produces more adorable experience for you to watch HD videos. This doesn’t mean it could not provide good experience for you to watch videos or enjoy DVD movies on Nokia Lumia 900. Everyone would become hard to refuse a sizable device for wonderful video experience.

    Connectivity: Both smartphones support 4G network connectivity. But when put into real testing, the Samsung Galaxy S III performs better to have perfect browsing experience that nearly reaches desktop experience. These two GSM devices are compatible with a wide array of GSM networks internationally. And they feature the typical set of connectivity features, but Galaxy S III trumps the Lumia 900 with Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, and 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.

    Battery: Nokia Lumia 900 defeats Samsung Galaxy S III in the battery life department. Specifically, Nokia Lumia 900 supports up to 1 ½ days normal use, while the Galaxy S III is only able to a solid one day of normal usage.

  • A full-scale and specific comparison of smartphones between Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan ll

    Posted on April 18th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Yesterday, I wrote a post about HTC One S vs. Apple iPhone 4S, which made a comparison between HTC One S and Apple iPhone 4S in several aspects, including camera, display, interface, multimedia, internet connectivity, price, etc. And today, the comparison between Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan ll will focus on the following aspects: display, camera, processor, OS, storage, internet connectivity, multimedia, and price. Both Windows phones come with fast mobile data support (4G network connectivity supported), big screen display (4.3 inches for Nokia Lumia 900 while 4.7 inches for HTC Titan ll), fast processor (1400MHz in Lumia 900 and 1500MHz in HTC Titan ll), and high-resolution cameras for image and video shooting (8MP and 16MP respectively for Lumia 900 and Titan ll). These features seem to make the HTC Titan ll looks a little greater than Nokia Lumia 900. Is it really so? Still too early to decide which one is better. And what’s more, if you want to get one from these two smartphones, you need to choose the one that suit you more, rather than the one looks like better, right? Well, let’s just start the comparison to see which one might be your choice.

    Nokia Lumia 900 vs. HTC Titan llDisplay: Both smartphones own good performance in display for mobile phone visual entertainment with their large screen display and high screen resolution. The Nokia Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch Clear Black AMOLED vivid screen display with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution and is backed by strong, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. While the HTC Titan ll comes with an even larger 4.7-inch Super LCD display with 480 x 800 pixels screen resolution. If you want to watch HD movies on smartphones, both of them could fulfill your needs with excellent visual effect.

    Camera: The Nokia Lumia 900 completes its 8MP camera with a Carl Zeiss lens at 3264 x 2448 pixels of resolution including features like autofocus, geo-tagging, dual LED flash and 720p video capture. While on the other hand, the HTC Titan ll provides an impressively 16-megapixel primary camera with a wide-angle lens, backside-illuminated sensor at 4640 x 3480 pixels of resolution. If only from the camera pixels, the 16MP camera on HTC Titan ll seems to be better than the 8MP camera on Nokia Lumia 900. But in a surprising twist, the Nokia Lumia 900’s 720p video recording is found to be a bit more pleasing to the eye than its rival.

    Processor: Both phones are featured with Qualcomm Scorpion processor and run at 512M RAM. The difference lies in that Nokia Lumia 900 runs a 1.4GHz processor while the HTC Titan ll features a 1.5GHz one. They both use the MSM8255T Snapdragon chipset, along with the same Adreno 205 graphics processing unit (GPU).

    OS: As for the operating system, there’s little difference between these two phones, both of which run the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.

    Storage: Both smartphones comes with a 16GB internal memory storage with no microSD card support for external memory expansion.

    Internet connectivity: Both the smartphones sport an 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connection and have 2.1+A2DP Bluetooth, the Focus S has 3.0+A2DP, EDR Bluetooth.

    Multimedia: Aside from the size disparity, there’s nothing different with the video watching experience. More than able to play the same videos, it’s really a tossup as to which one is the more pleasing to use for watching videos. The spaciousness of the HTC Titan II is highly appreciated, but the Nokia Lumia 900 has the iridescent color production to capture our attention.

    Battery: Battery life plays an important role in deciding which one to choose. The HTC Titan II has a standard Li-lon 1730 mAh battery. Compared to this, the Nokia Lumia N900 has a standard Li-lon 1800 mAh battery with up to 300 hours of stand-by, 7 hours of talk time and 60 hours of music play.

    Price:Price sometimes helps us to make our decisions. The Nokia Lumia 900 starts with the $99.99 on-contract price while the HTC Titan II is priced at $199.99 on-contract.

  • Nokia released Lumia 900 in New York on the Times Square Event as 2012 Easter Sunday gift

    Posted on April 9th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    On Easter Sunday, Nokia has finally brought out the long anticipated new samrthone Lumia 900 on the Times Square Event in New York. Just before the release event of Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia promised that it would bring “a live performance with special guest”. No, we all know the special guest is the musical super star Nicki Minaj, who delivered an amazing audio visual experience in Times Square that brought New York City to a standstill. The Nokia Lumia 900 is really an amazing smartphone, which is available in three colors: black, cyan and glossary white, at only $99.99 from AT&T with a new two-year contract (Amazon cuts down that price to $20 or $50 depending on where you are with AT&T). It represents a number of firsts: it is the first high-end Windows Phone from Nokia to arrive in the U.S., it is the first 4G LTE smartphone from Nokia, and it is one of the first 4G LTE Windows Phones on the market.

    With the release event, let’s take a look at the Nokia Lumia 900 performance. Just like its precede Nokia Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 comes with stunning industrial design, great build quality, and a fantastic ClearBlack AMOLED display, great network performance, solid battery life, and a fast and fluid user interface due to Windows Phone 7.5. But of course, there are also some shortcomings of this new smartphone, like its weak performance in camera and shortage of apps to compete with its counterparts.

    Nokia Lumia 900The 4.3 inch Lumia 900 sports a ClearBlack AMOLED display with WVGA (480×800 pixels) screen resolution that features tremendous viewing angles, inky deep blacks, and punchy colors. The screen resolution may make it less wonderful to watch HD videos on Lumia 900, compared to its counterpart devices like 720P Android smartphones and Retina display smartphones. But with its large screen display, it still provides excellent experience for HD movie lovers for unlimited movie enjoyment on the go.

    The Lumia 900 is powered by the 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM, just as the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 smartphones. The processor has no trouble pushing around the Windows Phone 7.5 Metro interface. Still, the fast and fluid interface is a joy to navigate and provides a very different experience than other smartphone platforms. Windows Phone 7.5 introduced a few new features to make it easier to navigate a long list of apps, but I feel that the app list could benefit from some sort of folder organization system, especially when there are a lot of apps installed on the phone.

    The back of the 900 features an 8 megapixel camera and LED flashlight. The eight megapixel camera, plus with wide-angle 28mm, f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, looks fantastic, but in practice it doesn’t live up to the hype. The Lumia 900 supports to record 720p video, which is better though with continuous autofocus while filming, sharp and good framerate, while compared to other phones on the market that are shooting 1080p clips. Also, it includes a 1MP front camera, which could be used for video chatting. But the image effect is really not that good.

    As to the apps available for Lumia 900, Nokia includes its ESPN and App Highlights apps into Lumia 900. You can also get a lot of AT&T services as well. Users could choose to install or uninstall apps available from the Windows Phone Marketplace, which has grown tremendously to over 70,000 apps by now. Of course, there are still a lot of apps missing in Lumia 900.

    The battery life also is an important element for a smartphone. The 1830mAh Nokia Lumia 900’s internal battery is not replaceable by users, but easily cruises through a full day of hard usage even on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Nokia says the Lumia 900 is rated for 7 hours of talk time, but is really an “all-day” battery.

  • HTC Titan 2 the Giant Windows Phone Comes on March 18 with 4G and Super Camera

    Posted on March 14th, 2012 Dupont | No comments

    The successor of one of the biggest hit Windows Phone models released last year-HTC Titan, HTC is going to release an equally epic in 4.7-inch size HTC Titan 2. The Titan 2 will be one of the first smartphones running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango to include support for 4G LTE. It is expected to be released by AT&T on March 18, 2012.

    Quick Specs
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)
    Processor: 1.5 GHz
    Memory: 16 GB of Built-in Storage
    Screen Resolution: 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA)
    Screen Size: 4.7-inch
    Keyboard Type: On-screen
    Communications: Bluetooth, GPRS, GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi, LTE
    GPS: Yes
    Release Date: 3/18/2012

    HTC Titan 2

    Design-wise, the HTC Titan 2 looks a lot like the original Titan but it slightly thicker (0.01 inches to be exact) due to the LTE chip.

    HTC stepped up its game in the camera department first with HTC myTouch 4G Slide. Like the Amaze and myTouch 4G Slide, the Titan 2 has a slew of shooting modes and advanced features with its super-high 16MP pixels F2.6 aperture camera, which is able to take up to 4640 x 3480 pixels photos and 720p HD video @30fps. A 1.3MP front-facing camera for video call is also available.

    Battery life is always on the top concern list when talking about a Smartphone, and HTC does increase size of the battery from the original 1600 mAh to 1730 mAh.

    All the specs seems great except the single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S2 Snapdragon processor with Adreno 205 GPU, especially when you look around and see other Smartphones or tablets with dual-core or even quad-core processors like Samsung Galaxy S2, the new iPad, Asus Transformer Prime, etc.

    About the price, it said that HTC Titan 2 will be sold at $199 on-contact price, which is $100 more compare to the $99 on-contact price of Nokia Lumia 900, which has almost the same specifications.

  • Nokia Lumia 910 leaked online shows off a main 12MP camera for HD video shooting

    Posted on January 31st, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Not long ago, the Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900, released on CES 2012 has attracted people’s eyes and made a heat for Nokia. The flagship Windows Phone would be hitting store shelves nationwide via AT&T. And barely a few days after that, a new device known as Nokia Lumia 910 has been leaked online to media. Dutch online cell phone retailer Typhone.nl has posted a listing for this smartphone it says will become available in the coming months. Using an image of AT&T’s flagship Lumia model, the company lists the Nokia Lumia 910 as featuring the same solid specs as its North American counterpart with the addition of an improved 12-megapixel camera.

    Nokia Lumia 910 leakedFrom the picture above, we could see that the Typhone.nl used an image of AT&T’s flagship Lumia model and leaked something about this new device, the most shinning point of which should be the 12 Megapixels camera resolution.

    For those who aren’t familiar with the Nokia Lumia 910 rumors, the device is rumored to be exactly the same in specifications as the Lumia 910, with the exception of a larger 12MP camera sensor. The new smartphone would come featured with the same 4.3 inch screen display as Nokia Lumia 900 owns, thus you can own a large screen display to watch DVD videos on Lumia 910 just like 900 does. Other main features of Nokia Lumia 910 would include: 1.4GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, front-facing camera and Windows Phone 7.5 on board.

    Whether the rumors are true or not are still to be seen in the near future. But we may greatly believe that the MWC 2012 would provide an ending to rumors and tell us the truth. I would continue to provide more information about this new smartphone. So stay tuned for more.
