• Battles of Mid-2013 Flagship Android Smartphones: LG G2 vs. Samsung Galaxy S 4 vs. HTC One vs. Moto X

    Posted on August 8th, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    The LG G2 is a high-end Android smartphone – an embodiment of cutting-edge hardware and precision-polished software, sprinkled with a handful of innovative goodies all over. It comes with top-of-the-line specifications, including a 5.2-inch, 1080p display made using IPS LCD technology, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip running at 2.3GHz, and 2GB of RAM. In terms of performance, the device should rank among the best handsets to date. Further down the list we have an advanced 13MP camera that stands out with cool features like optical image stabilization and 1080p video capturing at 60 frames per second. A notable multimedia feature is the support for 24-bit, 192kHz audio.

    LG G2 vs. Samsung Galaxy S 4 vs. HTC One vs. Moto X

    The design of the LG G2 is quite unusual for its volume and power buttons are placed on the back. Its thickness of 9 millimeters is acceptable considering that inside the phone you’ll find a 3000mAh removable battery. 32GB of on-board storage are present, expandable further through the use of a microSD card (in some markets).

    Until now, there have been quite several flagships of Android smartphones on the market. If you’re looking for a spec-to-spec throwdown among the G2, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, and Motorola Moto X, start with this chart right here.

    Keep in mind that we’ve had a limited amount of time with the G2, and that we won’t be able to draw any concrete conclusions until we compare our in-house review units face to face.

  • Google I/O gets no Nexus smartphone but Google Galaxy S 4, report said

    Posted on May 15th, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    About smartphones to appear on Google I/O 2013, there have been various reports and rumors. There’re reports that suggest a next Nexus 4, probably named Nexus 5, would appear on Google I/O 2013. But according to the latest reports from Geek.com, the 2013 Google I/O conference would get no Nexus smartphone to release. Don’t feel disappointed, as it has been reported on the other hand that Google would announce a Google version of Samsung Galaxy S 4, a Galaxy S 4 with the primitive Android OS.

    Google Galaxy S4

    Known to all, Samsung Galaxy S 4 adopted TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 UI customized on Android 4.2.2 OS. This operating OS included many new features that belong to Samsung. But there are a large number of people who prefer to the primitive Androi OS on Samsung Galaxy S 4, which means a big market for a new Google Galaxy S 4. The Android OS in Google Galaxy S 4 would update more frequently than that of other manufacturers.

    The report didn’t mention the Android OS version of Google Galaxy S 4, but it’s highly possible to be the recently exposed Android 4.3, or even the rumored Android 5.0, as rumored. It is reported that Google Galaxy S 4 would be available for shipment in June, currently on T-Mobile only. People may wonder that whether it is the strategy of Google to gradually abandon Nexus series. We need to see this on Google I/O conference.

  • 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.

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4 Rumored to Be Released in the Coming February with Brand-new Quad-core Cortex-A15 Processor

    Posted on December 25th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Smartphones with ultra-high popularity are always accompanied with a lot of rumors, such as the release date of Samsung Galaxy S 4. There’re already multiple versions. A few days ago, the online media Mobilenapps said that Samsung Galaxy S 4 would appear in the next February, equipped with 5 inches FHD touch screen, quad-core processor, 13 million pixels camera and Android 5.0 operating system.

    Samsung Galaxy S 4

    Samsung used to announce its new devices in March or April to follow its product round. However, with the fastening on main product renew from its rivals like Apple, Samsung seems to shorten its product renew period as well. It is quite reasonable to seen the Samsung Galaxy S 4 to be released in the coming February. Meanwhile, as the MWC2013 would happen in the same month, the rumor seems to be more reliable.

    Cortex-A15 Quad-core processor
    As for the specs, according to rumors, the Galaxy S4 would come with a 5-inch (4.99″ actually) FHD touchscreen. Like any other predecessors, it would be amazing for you to watch HD movies on Galaxy S 4. The new smartphone would run on a greatly improved processor, the Exynos 5450 quad-core processor, which adopts brand new Cortext-A15 framework and 28nm processing with up to 2.0GHz main frequency and Mali-658 graphic processing chipset. The overall performance of the processor would be improved by 3-5 times.

    Samsung Galaxy S 4

    13MP Camera
    As to camera, Samsung Galaxy S 4 is built in with a 13MP camera. No detailed information about the shooting effect has been revealed. This new camera is said to be configured on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, which finally adopted an 8MP camera due to the supply shortage.

    Android 5.0 OS
    Another advantage of Galaxy S 4 is that it is reported to configure the upcoming Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS. If this is true, it would mean that even if the release event is set to be February, the market availability of this phone would be not earlier than the next May. As Google is reported to possibly announce its new OS in May.

    Considering on various elements, the most reliable date of the official release might be the Q2 of 2013. What’s your opinion?

  • Samsung Project J: Galaxy S IV and New Galaxy Note 2 Hits in April 2013

    Posted on December 4th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Samsung has managed to climb at the top of the smartphone market with its Android-based Galaxy models, and it seems that new devices that will help the company remain there will land on shelves soon. Among them, there will be a new smartphone in the popular Galaxy S lineup, one that has already been rumored to hit shelves as Galaxy S IV.

    Samsung’s Galaxy S III is still flying off store shelves, but rumors surrounding the next iteration flagship, currently dubbed “Project J,” suggest the phone may launch as early as April 2013. Project J, as you might have guessed, is simply the codename for the Galaxy S IV – the successor to what most could argue was this year’s best Android phone.

    Samsung Galaxy S 4

    No official confirmation on the matter has emerged so far, nor did info on the hardware specs of the Galaxy S IV make it online.

    Details on the Galaxy S IV are sparse at this hour but most in the know expect it to carry a Samsung Exynos 5450 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A15 processor, 2GB of system RAM, a 13MP rear camera and a 5-inch 1080p screen. The same sources also point to a cheaper Galaxy Note II to launch in Europe and will have lower specs than the current Note II. It’s said that the device won’t come with a stylus and no AMOLED display technology either. Furthermore, a competitor to ASUS’ Transformer tablet series is also rumored to be on the way from Samsung. It’s said that the company wants to bring a 13.3-inch tablet to the market with QWERTY keyboard dock accessory. However, no other details were given about the possible tablet.

    The market name of this phone is unknown at the moment, and the same applies to its hardware specifications, it seems.

    The new device model is expected to be released in Europe, and might not feature the S-Pen functionality that made its predecessors so popular. No other details on the handset’s capabilities and specs have been provided as of yet, but keep an eye on this space for additional info on the matter.

    We’re interested to see where Samsung might go with this if the rumors turn out to be true.
