Specifications Verizon HTC Thunderbolt

2011-10-27T18:49:29.486-07:00

(image)

Since the launch of HTC Droid Incredible, there has been a long absence from the new HTC launches in the range of Verizon. Coming on the heels of Sprint's HTC EVO 4G is Verizon HTC Thunderbolt. The enormous HTC Thunderbolt comes with a 4.3 "capacitive touchscreen with WVGA (480 x 800), 1.3 megapixel camera and a video front leg.

If these features fail to ignite your senses, HTC has Thunderbolt other specifications that immaculate 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the latest version of Sense UI running on Android 2.2 Froyo, Bluetooth 2.1, 8 megapixels with auto-focus the camera with flash, front of the camera face video calling, recording 720p HD video and support for LTE 4G Verizon for high-speed Web browsing.

Running Android on HTC Sense 2.2, the platform of the experience is not very different from devices other meaning here. Navigation is fairly smooth and fluid, without slowing down or retardation. The Thunderbolt was built in video chat in Skype interface HTC Sense. Other features include 8GB of onboard storage with 768 RAM and a memory card preloaded with 32 GB microSD.

With the huge amount of storage, this multimedia powerhouse with Dolby surround sound is as good as a portable media player (you will not need to leave your iPod more). Verizon 4G LTE is super duper fast loading YouTube videos in seconds.

The 1 GHz processor Snapdragon offers stellar performance, but not as fast as phones like the LG dual core or 2x Optimus Droid Bionic. To summarize, the HTC Thunderbolt is the best arguebly HTC enjoying a 4.3 "display to date, but support for LTE will surely be the deciding factor to consider in buying this phone.

In a fast paced market that is still evolving and changing, HTC Thunderbolt is a total package that has the looks, class and performance.

2011-10-27T18:49:29.487-07:00

If there is a device that can appease the most hardcore monster of technology, it would iPad 2. Since iPad began shipping in April last year, he sent the fans into frenzy mode to see on the web, email and photos like never before. Among the factors contributing to its massive success is its affordable price from $ 499, weighs less than most laptops and netbooks, turns instantly and the ability to run 10 hours unplugged. In fact, everyone was talking about last year's game because the competition was almost nonexistent iPad. Just for your information, Apple sold 15 million iPads in less than a year!

Well, fast forward in the year 2011, we see a completely different story that manufacturers like Motorola, Samsung and HP have started to introduce their revolutionary tablet devices. That said, what the long-awaited successor to the popular IPAD, the two have in store iPad to repel his enemies? To begin, iPad 2 is rumored to be thinner and lighter than its predecessor ... and we all know that the iPad is already one of the lightest tablets there at only 0.68 kg.

iPad 2 would come with a dual core processor, better screen with "anti-glare" to provide a better experience in direct sunlight, more RAM and storage, most powerful graphics processor, probably a backup camera and a front face facing the camera to bring the video call feature FaceTime on the shelf. The tablet runs on GSM and CDMA networks. The new tablet IOS will support Verizon Wireless and AT & T network, but not Sprint and T-Mobile USA Networks. The display resolution iPad 2 should be unchanged, however, as a 3 IPAD is said to deliver an improvement in this aspect next year.

Then with the intention of capturing the tablets consumer and business markets, the mission of the new tablet is iOS to compete head-on with Motorola's highly touted Xoom, which has just passed on the sale and Galaxy Tab 10.1, a more Samsung's large original seven-inch tablets that will be shipped in some markets in June Both tablets run on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). Thus, your hands become itchy, can not wait for the last 2 iPad? Well, the good news is that it will be officially unveiled on March 2, just over a week from now (although shipping will probably be delayed to June)

Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.490-07:00

IntroductionMinis are supposed to be the cheaper, stripped down version of the bigger and superior gadgets. There’s a long list of bigger and superior siblings for the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 to choose from but it has its own two feet to stand on.So, the Galaxy Mini is the last shake of the bag. It will never get to rub shoulders with the big and scary smartphones. But it’s not all bad you know. Not bad at all actually for what basically is an entry level smartphone with complete connectivity, social networking, internet, Android apps and music. It’s the right kind of device for smartphone newbies. A good option if you just don’t want to spend a truck-load of money on a smartphone. Key Features·         Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support·         7.2 Mbps HSDPA·         3.14” 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen ·         ARMv6 600MHz processor, 384MB RAM ·         Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz v3.0 UI·         160MB internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot, 2GB card included·         3.15 MP fixed-focus camera with geotagging·         GPS receiver with A-GPS·         Stereo FM radio with RDS·         3.5mm audio jack·         Document editor·         Accelerometer and proximity sensor·         Swype text input ·         MicroUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth 2.1·         Social network integration·         Good build, youthful stylingMain disadvantages·         Low screen resolution limits choice of apps·         Fixed focus camera·         No secondary video-call camera·         No flash, no dedicated camera key·         Poor video recording QVGA @ 15fpsThe Galaxy Mini was not made to impress. It was made to serve and be simple to use. It’s a solid little smartphone that has all the important ingredients. It can do most of the things your Galaxy S can, just without the stuff that pushes the price up.With this one, Samsung look to encourage their loyal users to consider a smartphone. Versatility and friendliness make Android quite inviting. The Mini has the specs to back that up too.Budget-conscious users are having a range of competing phones to choose from and the Samsung Galaxy Mini will have to work harder to get noticed. But the right price tag will put it on the radar of the young, novice smartphone users. That gives the Mini something to start with[...]

USA - HTC smartphone 3D Evo Reviews Specification

Sony Ericsson Mini Xperia X8 With X10 Phone Android

2011-10-27T18:49:29.493-07:00

The spiritual successor to the Sony Ericsson Mini quart X10 size is the with white Xperia  X8, a touchscreen phone running Android of similar dimensions. But do good things really come in small packages? Read on to find out.The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is about the same size as the Mini X10, if a bit larger at the edges. It is light, pocket friendly, and despite its size, it is not so small that the size of the screen (3 inches) suffers.Again, like the Sony Ericsson Mini X10, you can customize the presentation of the Sony Xperia X8 adding shortcuts to the four corners of the screen, giving you quick access to the phone book, messages, camera, Facebook, or what you want. On top of that, you can assign a single widget (like Google Search) for each screen, of which there are three. You can add more if desired (we had 12 runs on our own), but obviously things you have to run things get slower.Due to web browsing, but with 3G and Wi-Fi chilly, can feel a little awkward. Having to use the zoom controls on the screen that does not always respond as you would have them and repeatedly clicking on the links can be annoying. The same applies when you scroll Facebook News Feeds, too.The simple 3.2 megapixel camera is not terrible, but the trigger on the steep side combined with the control does not respond to the screen means you get to take some blurry pictures. There's no flash either, which means no pictures at night or taking photos in dimly lit places.You do not have much in the way of camera settings, only some very basic lighting options. Of course you can always download applications such as Android and fxcamera RetroCamera but it's nice to have some fun effects built in too. Again, like the Mini X10 X8 Xperia runs on Android 1.6. This is all well and good for a phone midrange budget that Android 2.3 is supposed to be with us in a few weeks makes X8 feel a little old hat.Conclusion The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Android phone is blocked, like the X10 Mini is a cute little pocket friendly phone. Ideal if you have not used an Android phone before and it comes with some useful applications pre-installed and it has a fairly simple layout. The resistive touch screen can make things difficult, however, and if you are after a more powerful Android phone that offers a greater degree of customization, we suggest you check the normal size Xperia X10.[...]



Samsung Galaxy S2 4G

2011-10-27T18:49:29.493-07:00

src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/0MxaLGRMgVs" allowfullscreen="" width="440" frameborder="0" height="280">2011 is and will be the greatest year in the world of cell phones. Many of the manufacturers up to this month alone have already declared and/or released some of the super power, technology supreme handy phones.Some of the released or announced cool phones are HTC Inspire 4G, Samsung Infuse 4G, Motorola Atrix 4G which belong to AT&T network and the new and recently announced iPhone 5G and all of those phones are, for the lack of a better word, ridiculous in terms of technology. And somehow Samsung is set to launch another smart, highly tech phone and that phone is Samsung Galaxy i9100 or to be more simple, the S2.Samsung Galaxy S2 is the successor of the highly acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S. Samsung Galaxy S alone has acquired many awards and the title of the best Android based smart phones out there, but if you think the Galaxy S is awesome then wait until you get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S2. Not a lot on the information about this new, cool phone, but some leak info have been circling around the web.This phone is now and it’s been officially dubbed to be the world thinnest cell phone with 8.49mm thin. Isn’t that unbelievable? And it got really cool specs for you to play with, that specs are: * It runs on GSM, like any other cell phones that run on GSM of course. * It has a Super-AMOLED II Display Screen, which to my knowledge it may just run on a Super-AMOLED Plus not II. Screen size up to 4.37 inches with color of 16.777.216, touch screen of course with multi touch, proximity sensor and a light sensor. * It runs on an Android 2.3 a.k.a. Gingerbread, not like Samsung Infuse, HTC Inspire and Motorola Atrix which run on Android 2.2 also known as Froyo. Dual core processor with the speed up to 1000 MHz and the memory of a 1024 MB RAM. * It’s got a camera of 8 MP, read ‘em and weep, 8MP with a LED Flash with the awesome features of Auto Focus, Smile Detection and Panorama view. It also has the video capture capability up to 1920×1080 resolutions and it runs on 1080p HD viewing which means it runs on 30 frames per second. That’s very cool. It also has a front camera up to 2 MP which is very high, because some phones with a front facing camera only have 0.3 or 1.3 MP and so, with that front facing camera of 2 MP you can video chat with your… well, everyone you know that has a front camera too. * Standard apps in any smart phones, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. * It’s got A-GPS location system.While we’re still waiting for the official announcement of Samsung regarding the release date of the Samsung Galaxy S2 here in United States, a new rumor claims that the Android smartphone will hit stateside via three carriers, and will use different branding.Samsung Galaxy S2 will use the name Samsung Attain , while Verizon will use Samsung Function, and Sprint will sell the Galaxy S2 using the Samsung Within branding.Samsung Galaxy S2 is already available in United Kingdom and other parts of the world, sporting a tag price from $600 to $800 off contract.Expected to be [...]

Windows Phone 7 OS disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.494-07:00

IntroductionA modern smartphone OS needs to be balanced - drawing on excellent cloud services and standing on the cutting edge of software. The Windows Phone 7 OS is nothing like Windows Mobile. It's got a trendy, almost magazine-like new look, and it is incredibly simple to use despite its different approach to just about everything.Microsoft received a loud collective boo when it revealed that Windows Phone 7 will not support multitasking. But the company is trying to break the mold here. Instead of making a playground for apps, it made WP7 the “killer app”. Anything extra that you install just integrates in and extends the relevant features.They must’ve sat down to think. A complete makeover or start from scratch. In an odd way, it looks like they never actually made up their mind. That doesn’t matter though. The important thing is Windows Phone 7 is breaking loose from its “Windows Mobile” heritage and changes everything about itself – from the homescreen to the very nature of apps.Key features:·                 Premium mobile OS (high minimum hardware requirements) ·                 Clean, uncluttered interface with distinctive design language ·                 Easy and thumbable user interface ·                 Smooth operation with cool animations and transition effects ·                 A fresh start with no legacy support needed ·                 Backed up and developed by one of the largest software companies in the world ·                 Excellent MS Office mobile implementation ·                 Top-notch social integration ·                 Excellent cloud services integration (SkyDrive, Windows Live, Xbox Live) ·                 Wireless syncing of multimedia content ·                 Internal memory expandable via microSD card slot (where available)Main disadvantages:·                 No system-wide file manager ·                 No [...]



Sony Ericsson Yendo disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.494-07:00

IntroductionIt looks like the XPERIA X10 mini but acts like what it is – a full-touch feature phone. This is obviously nothing really to shout about as there are hundreds of them around now. It’s a first for Sony Ericsson but that’s not what makes it special either.The Sony Ericsson Yendo will not stand being treated like just another touchscreen dumbphone. That Walkman badge commands a different level of respect. Now, does it really or is it what the Yendo likes to think?There isn’t much this little fella can actually promise you.

Sony Ericsson Yari disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.494-07:00

IntroductionMake way Nintendo Wii and Project Natal – the Sony Ericsson Yari can play both motion-based games and camera-tracked gesture controlled games. A 5MP camera and GPS in an attractive package and of course great audio quality – we might have a winner on our hands.What’s all this gesture gaming we’re going on about? Simple, well, sort of – Yari uses its secondary camera to track motion so that you can use your body to control the game, like the impressive Project Natal demos you might have seen (and if you haven’t, do – you’ll know joysticks are a thing of the past). The accelerometer also comes into play – the Bowling game puts a Wii in your pocket.But the Sony Ericsson Yari is not just about games. Even though Sony Ericsson are done using the Cybershot and Walkman labels, Yari’s seems to have both types of genes. It packs a 5MP camera with auto-focus and the audio quality is great. Keep in mind this is a reasonably priced phone we’re talking about here. Key features:Quad-band GSM supportTri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 1.8 Mbps support 2.4” 16M-color display (240 x 320 pixels)5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flashVGA video recording at 30fpsGesture-based gamingAccelerometer for automatic UI rotation and motion-based gaming, gaming keysBuilt-in GPS receiver with optional WisePilot navigationFM radio with RDS and TrackIDBluetooth with A2DP and USB (Fast Port connector) Great audio qualityStereo speakersSupport for microSD cards up to 16GB, hot-swap, 1GB card in the boxRetail package comes with a desk standMain disadvantages:Signal reception issues (could be unit-specific)Uncomfortable soft keys and keypadCamera produces bland, low-contrast photosNo standard USB and audio portsPreinstalled gesture-based games not very impressiveSo-called "gaming keys" don't have any actual use in games Slow image gallery No office document viewerWisePilot software is a 30-day trial, downloads map data over the airGames, music, navigation – the Sony Ericsson Yari is a Swiss army knife of a phone.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.494-07:00

IntroductionSony Ericsson have been working on the X10 for quite a long time, taking the utmost care to make sure its software offers the best user experience possible. They wanted their first droid to be perfect and perfection requires time. That’s right – the XPERIA X10 is the first Android to roll off the Sony Ericsson assembly line, hard as it might be to believe. But it certainly is not the kind of the phone to quietly disappear in the crowd of first-generation droids.Androids just keep coming and a look at our front page will tell you any newcomer will need big ideas to make a splash. The popularity of Google’s mobile OS is reaching unprecedented levels and the handsets adopting Android grow in number every day. And while Microsoft will try to unify their Windows Phone 7 and limit customization, Google favor the opposite approach.Sony Ericsson immediately took on board the possibilities offered by customization and really ran with it. Their blue-themed interpretation breathes new life into the familiar Android OS and tries to give the user a whole new experience. But they didn’t stop there. The unique Timescape and Mediascape interfaces are supposed to give the XPERIA X10 a much-needed edge in the high-end class. Trying to compete with the HTC Sense is a tough job, but Sony Ericsson have managed to offer something completely different – giving media and communications a central place in their UI.XPERIA X10 comes with top-notch hardware to meet its software demands. Here is the impressive specs sheet along with some potential drawbacks.Key featuresQuad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support4" capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 854 pixel) resolution and scratch-resistant surface16M-color ready (65K effective colors under Android OS v1.6)Android OS v1.6 with complete Sony Ericsson UI customizationTimescape and Mediascape UIExcellent social networking integrationExcellent build qualityQualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon 1 GHz CPU, OpenGL ES 2.0 support; 384 MB of RAM8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, touch focus, image stabilization, geotagging, face and smile detectionWVGA (800 x 480 pixels) video recording @ 30fpsWi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS1GB storage, microSD slot, bundled with an 8GB cardAccelerometer and proximity sensorStandard 3.5 mm audio jackmicroUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth v2.1Document viewerLi-Po 1500 mAh (BST-41) batteryGreat audio qualityMain disadvantagesNo DivX and XviD video playbackNo smart dialingLimited storage available to the user on the system partition (you are left with only 512 MB for installing apps) No secondary video-call camera (or videocalling whatsoever)No free GPS navigation solutionNo Flash support for the web browserNo FM radioAn extra [...]



Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.495-07:00

IntroductionIt took a while before mobile phones became portable not only in name. At one point, small size alone made a phone something special. Calling and texting were all there was and twelve buttons were nonnegotiable.Those times seem prehistoric now that a contemporary smartphone is expected to do all but the dishes. There we are – 3.7” touch screens are now the norm. It sounds like pushing the limits of portability but most people won’t mind as long as there’re virtually no limits on functionality. With nearly desktop-like browsing, video and TV – displays are only supposed to get better, crisper… and bigger. Who would want it the other way? Small touchscreen doesn’t make sense.Now, everyone’s entitled to an opinion. And Sony Ericsson are keen to disagree. Small touchscreen may be against the simple logic, but just don’t rush to judgment yet. Not till you’ve seen the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini. It has more smartphone powers than most users will ever need. It’s a little sweetie, and it’s cool and gadgety too. Just don’t let the size fool you.Key featuresQuad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support 3G with HSPA Customized Android OS v1.6 with Timescape UIUltra compact body2.55" capacitive touchscreen of QVGA resolution Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz CPU5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and VGA video recording Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g Built-in GPS receiver and digital compassAccelerometer sensor for auto-rotate and turn-to-mute Standard miniUSB port for charging and data Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) microSD card slot with support for up to 8GB cards (2GB card included) 3.5mm-compatible audio jack Direct access to the official Android repository Main disadvantagesQVGA resolution doesn’t do Android graphics justice and limits the number of compatible appsBattery not user replaceableLimited Android homescreen functionality No smart dialing Typing long messages is very hard on the small screenNo Bluetooth file transfers from the galleryNo Flash support for the web browser Very basic camera interfaceSo, long story short, crowds probably won’t be flocking to the shops to replace their full-sized XPERIA X10 units for the mini version. The X10 mini doesn’t have it all and isn’t the ultimate smartphone, but all is not what everyone needs.The X10 mini is easy on your pocket – and we don’t just mean size. The phone uses less expensive hardware – low-res screen, a midrange CPU. But if you think of it, it’s not just blatant cost-cutting.It looks like they made the right choices and in the end you don’t have to pay for something you cannot use anyway. Anything higher than QVGA wouldn’t have made much difference on a 2.55” screen (which is the most you can fit in a phone this small really). Anything faster than [...]



Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.495-07:00

IntroductionIt was back in February 2008 that the XPERIA lineup was born and it took Sony Ericsson almost two years to bring about the XPERIA X1 successor. The long waiting is over now and the XPERIA X2 is keen to prove to us all it was worth it.Both devices obviously have lots of features in common (it's the same amount of memory - both RAM and ROM, and the same CPU) but there are - possibly - enough improvements to make the XPERIA X2 a strong successor and a valuable upgrade. And by telling you that, we don't only mean the more recent version of WinMo. 6.5 was never officially compatible with the original.Anyway, the upgraded imaging is the greatest asset of the XPERIA X2 hardware and we're about to see how much it works in its favor. Before we kick off though, a bit of family tree stuff. The XPERIA X2 is only the second PocketPC in the series after the X1. The X10 runs Android and so does the rumored Robyn, while the Pureness isn't even a smartphone. The XPERIA lineup comes in different shapes and sizes but it all started with Windows Mobile. The X2 is perfectly aware of that and comes to offer some all-round PocketPC skills and the aggressive styling of its forerunner.Key features: Quad-band GSM support Tri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps Four-row slide-and-tilt QWERTY keyboard Landscape and portrait virtual QWERTY keyboards Handwriting recognition 3.2" 65K-color TFT LCD resistive touchscreen (480 x 800 pixels) Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional XPERIA panels user interface Accelerometer sensor Qualcomm MSM 7200 528 MHz CPU, 256 MB of RAM memory 8.1 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash WVGA video recording at 30fps Support for DivX/XviD files out of the box Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, DLNA Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support Bluetooth and USB (standard microUSB connector) v2.0 3.5mm standard audio jack Stereo speakers Flash video support TV out port, TV out cable supplied in the retail box Main disadvantages:Outdated hardware Sluggish interface Display still on the small side, inadequate touch sensitivity and sunlight legibility Almost no screen auto-rotation throughout the UI Disappointing video recording Basic music player No FM radio (should be enabled with upcoming firmware update) No video calling (should be enabled with upcoming firmware update) As we said in the preview a few months back, there aren't many groundbreaking features to see, but the XPERIA X2 is definitely worth a look to check what it can actually do.Well, if you're looking for Snapdragon speed, you won't find it here. There's no capacitive touchscreen either. And the X2 also skips an FM radio and its camera has no Xenon flash. But you get all the business benefits you would expect in a[...]



Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.495-07:00

IntroductionLuxury phones are having a tough time being unique nowadays. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness is having a hard time being… luxurious. But that’s no way to start a proper review now, is it?There we go again then. Rare metals and precious stones are commonplace, but a transparent screen? Now, that’s a first. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness keeps only the essential phone functions and that explains the Pureness moniker. And just like a proper luxury phone, it comes with a concierge service.You can access the concierge service 24/7 via a phone call or email and have them book you a hotel room, buy tickets for a game or ask for advice. But it’s not just a simple booking service – going through the concierge service has some perks, like free room upgrades in some hotels, discounts (well, well), complementary champagne and so on.You see, the luxury of owning a Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness doesn’t just come from what’s in the phone itself. But since we’re not going to be using the concierge service anytime soon, let’s focus on what the phone has to offer: Key features:Quad-band GSM support3G with HSDPA and HSUPA supportOne-of-a-kind transparent greyscale display (1.8", 240 x 320 pixels), scratch-resistant surfaceVery lightweight, only 70 gramsFM radio with RDS and TrackIDBluetooth with A2DP and USB (Fast Port connector) 2 GB internal memorySmart dialingExcellent audio qualityMain disadvantages:Small screen is poor on legibility Looks cheap and poorly builtFast Port instead of 3.5 mm audio jack means limited use as a music playerFast 3G connectivity with HSDPA/HSUPA is only usable for tetheringNo cameraNon-removable battery Internal memory not expandableA phone with a transparent screen is nothing short of unique. But the display certainly is a liability in terms of actually using the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness. It limits the physical space available inside the phone, leaving Sony Ericsson engineers with very little room to work with.Plus, the low-resolution greyscale display makes a camera (even just a video call camera) and proper web browsing pointless. This leaves tethering as the only reasonable use for the fast 3G data.The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness impresses with its transparent displayBut the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness is not a gadget. Rather it takes the concept of pureness and runs with it – by leaving out all the distracting features. Only the essence of a phone remains and the transparent screen acts as the perfect metaphor for this.On the next page, we look through the hardware. Literally.[...]



Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.495-07:00

IntroductionWith video gaming a sport in its own right, smartphones have no other choice but raise their game too. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has strong ties to Sony’s gaming rigs, both portable and not, and Sony’s a big name in gaming.So, what does all this pedigree bring? Games from the original PlayStation for one, with PlayStation 2 titles coming in the near future. The PlayStation Pocket game store comes with 50 games at launch optimized for the Play. You’ll certainly also appreciate the familiar feeling and design of the gaming buttons. .So, let’s have a look at the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play. They stitched thumbs to the robot: meaning a DualShock controller stitched to a 4” touchscreen in a side-slider form factor. A smartphone version of the PSP Go but with more processing power isn’t far off the truth either. Especially now that the PSP Go is officially discontinued.Here’s a quick summary of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play:Key features·                 Side-slider with dedicated gaming controls·                 Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support·                 3G with HSDPA and HSUPA·                 4.0" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels)·                 Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ·                 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset·                 512 MB RAM ·                 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging; WVGA video recording @ 30fps·                 Secondary front-facing camera·                 Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA·                 GPS with A-GPS·                 microSD slot up to 32GB (8GB card included)·                 Accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensors· [...]

IntroductionIt’s a sequel. Same cast and the same story but with a new lead and a new director. Shot in HD. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo is to settle some unfinished business at the box office. A year stands between the Vivaz and the Neo and Android does make all the difference.The XPERIA Neo is part of Sony Ericsson’s new droid lineup and takes advantage of all the new features – the LED-backlit Reality display with Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine, an 8 megapixel Exmor R camera sensor, 720p video with continuous autofocus and the latest Android – 2.3 Gingerbread.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support·                 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA·                 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) on Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine·                 Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread·                 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset·                 512 MB RAM·                 8 MP autofocus camera, LED flash, geotagging·                 720p video @ 30fps, continuous autofocus·                 Front facing VGA camera, video calls·                 Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA·                 GPS with A-GPS·                 microSD slot (32GB supported, 8GB card included)·                 Accelerometer and proximity sensor·                 Standard 3.5 mm audio jack·                 Stereo FM radio with RDS·                 microUSB port (charging) and[...]



Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.496-07:00

IntroductionThe Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is back for a second round and this time it will stay a while longer. The company’s new flagship did great in our preview and we’d gladly have more of it.The statement just couldn’t have been stronger and clearer. The new BRAVIA screen and the impressively slim and fit body are exactly the way to treat a flagship. Android Gingerbread too is as good as it gets in the smartphone world these days.Just months ago that combination would’ve equaled a license to kill – which the Arc would’ve used without second thoughts. But the competition is insanely intense today and no one is given a second to think.It takes more than a few outstanding features these days, and they’d better be backed by solid performance across the board. Omissions are not easily forgiven so the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc better stay focused.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support·                 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA·                 4.2" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine·                 Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ·                 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset·                 512 MB RAM ·                 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging·                 720p video recording @ 30fps with continuous autofocus·                 Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA·                 GPS with A-GPS·                 microSD slot up to 32GB (8GB card included)·                 Accelerometer and proximity sensor·                 Standard 3.5 mm audio jack·    &nb[...]



Sony Ericsson X8 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.496-07:00

IntroductionThe Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 is likely to outsell the rest of the XPERIA droids. It’s neither the best phone in the line-up, nor it’s a phone to excite and inspire but it’s the common denominator. It is right in the middle. It’s an XPERIA for everyone – both size-wise and price-wise.The X8 bridges the gap between two extremes. And it manages to find itself a niche in the process - a niche where it can breathe freely. It’s a place with healthy competition but no big egos around. The X8 is selling for as low as 175 euro and that makes it one of the least expensive Android smartphones on the market.For a reasonable price, the phone offers the feature pack most of its rivals would give you. It has diverse connectivity options, a good music player, neat user interface, a built-in camera and access to social networks and the Android Market.Average size and realistic price, the X8 fits snugly in the Android midrange and sets itself apart from its XPERIA siblings. That’s more than evident without digging too deep into the spec sheet.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM/EDGE, HSDPA 900/2100 / HSDPA 850/1900/2100·                 3.0" capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution, 16M colors·                 Scratch-resistant screen coating·                 Android OS v1.6 Donut with custom Sony Ericsson UI, featuring Timescape·                 Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz processor ·                 128 MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB), 2GB card included·                 3 megapixel fixed-focus camera with geotagging, VGA video @ 30fps·                 Wi-Fi connectivity·                 Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP·                 Built-in GPS receiver, digital compass·                 microUSB port, charging enabled·         &nb[...]



Sony Ericsson Vivaz disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.496-07:00

IntroductionSony Ericsson is an alliance of two tech giants and with phones like the Vivaz it shows. It’s a gadget all the way, one that will galvanize geeks and charm the regular user.A whole bunch of point-and-shoot cameras today boast 720p video recording, but are they not an endangered species feeling enormous pressure on both sides? For one, there are compact video recording DSLRs pushing down with competitive price tags, and then cameraphones are eating into compact camera territory with comparable still image resolution and video capture.Eight megapixel still images and 720p video with continuous auto focus make the Sony Ericsson Vivaz a predator of point-and-shoot cameras. The Vivaz is not just a cameraphone though, it’s a smartphone as well – a tricked out Symbian running on a 720MHz CPU with a 3.2” nHD display to show it all off. That’s all in a package more compact than any combination of a stand-alone camera and a phone you can think of.High-end smartphones have a long history of trading compact size for cramming in one feature more than the competition. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz strikes a perfect balance between being compact and feature-full – great news for anyone who doesn’t appreciate the recent craze of smartphones the size of a table… umm… tablet.Key features3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, geotagging and touch focus HD 720p video recording @ 24fps with continuous auto focusSymbian OS 9.4 S60 5th, topped with a custom-brewed homescreen and media menu 720 MHz CPU, PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics acceleratorQuad-band GSM support 3G with HSDPA 10.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps support Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS microSD card slot (up to 16GB, 8GB card in the box) Built-in accelerometer Turn-to-mute TV out Stereo FM Radio microUSB and stereo Bluetooth v2.0 Web browser has full Flash support Preinstalled Wisepilot navigation software Office document viewer Decent audio qualityMain disadvantagesNo camera lens protection No auto mode for the flash/video lightLED flash not powerful enoughThe S60 5th edition UI isn't to the best in class standards No proximity sensor sensor to lock the screen during a callNo DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box No smart or voice dialing No office document editing (without a paid upgrade) No stereo speakers No digital compass (magnetometer) Videocalling uses only the main camera (no secondary one)The feature list leaves very little to complain about, so is it t[...]



Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.496-07:00

IntroductionModern always-on web-connected generation need so much equipment to get through the day it’s a small wonder they don’t have to lug tool bags around – the small wonder in this case is the Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro. It’s a full-featured smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard for great messaging and 720p video recording, all in an impressively compact body.The term “cameraphone” emerged soon after pictures taken with a mobile phone began to look less like impressionist paintings and more like actual photos. Today we’re at a point when 5MP are nothing to write home about.So, this here pro is the lesser cameraphone of the Vivaz pair. And “camcorderphone” does sound clumsy. But if competing phones are any indication, 5MP stills and 720p video is quite an exciting combo.Less attention grabbing, but no less useful is the hardware QWERTY keyboard. Sure, there are plenty of phones around with a full keyboard, but how many of them can match the Sony Ericsson Vivaz feature set?To answer that, we need to know what those features are of course, so here’s the traditional list of pros and cons.Key features3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, geotagging and touch focus HD 720p video recording @ 24fps with continuous auto focusSymbian OS 9.4 S60 5th, topped with a custom-brewed homescreen and media menu 720 MHz CPU, PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics acceleratorQuad-band GSM support 3G with HSDPA 10.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps support Wi-Fi b/g; DLNAGPS with A-GPS supportmicroSD card slot (up to 16GB, 8GB card in the box) Built-in accelerometer; Turn-to-mute TV out Wisepilot navigation software preinstalled (30 day trial)Four-row QWERTY keyboardOffice document viewer Stereo FM Radio with RDS; TrackIDmicroUSB and stereo Bluetooth v2.0 Web browser with full Flash support Decent audio qualityMain disadvantagesCamera downgraded from 8MP on the regular VivazNo camera lens protection The S60 5th edition UI isn't the best in usabilityNo auto locking of the screen during a callNo DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box No smart or voice dialing No secondary videocalling cameraThe scales are swinging both ways. A point in favor of the Vivaz pro is the mature Symbian platform. It cannot hide its age and is struggling to catch up with the best in business. But it’s been around since the dawn of time (the time of smartphones that is), which makes it well supported and very reliable.The QWERTY keyboard, the documen[...]



Sony Ericsson Satio disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionSony Ericsson have long ago shown that they are not afraid of any challenge, producing handsets that have claimed a top spot on the market. There are still plenty of fans from those good old days that would love to see another market-leading device thrown their way.A look at what's between the XPERIA X1 and the Satio is enough to tell you what Sony Ericsson have been up to for the past year. A top-dog Cybershot (C905) and an all-round Walkman (W995) were both compelling enough but none would be trusted to top the portfolio of a company that used to call the shots at the forefront of mobile technology.So, Sony Ericsson might have been busy cutting costs, fueling the hype behind their new wave gadgets (Satio, Aino and Rachael) or experimenting with Symbian and Android. But there's little doubt about their full-time job. The Satio is a lot more than its mouthwatering features, full touchscreen debuting Symbian S60 or its 12 megapixel camera. It may be too much to say that all the company's hopes lie with the Satio but the burden on its shoulders is disproportionate compared to any other flagship device we can think of.This review, by the way, is coming after a massive spoiler. But the good thing is we know the Satio is all geared and ready to face some serious challenges. An industry leading cameraphone, or top-of-the-line smartphone, the Satio has a clear view of its goal. But you can be certain that its path forward will not be covered in rose petals. Sony Ericsson are in dire need of fresh devices (and cash) and the Satio should not be anything but a bestseller. When you're trying to turn your fortunes around, you have very little room for error.Key features3.5" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution 12 megapixel state-of-the-art autofocus camera LED and xenon flash, active lens cover VGA@30fps video recording Symbian OS 9.4 with S60 5th edition UI, spiced up with a home-brewed homescreen and media menu ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz CPU, PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics accelerator and 256 MB of RAM Quad-band GSM support 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 3.6 Mbps support Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS microSD card slot (up to 32GB) Built-in accelerometer TV out Stereo FM Radio USB and stereo Bluetooth v2.0 Web browser has full Flash support Preinstalled Wisepilot navigation software Office document viewer Main disadvantagesXenon flash is not adequately powerful The S60 5th edition UI isn't to the best in class standards No 3.5mm audio jack or a standard USB port No DivX [...]



Sony Ericsson Hazel disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionLong-time Sony Ericsson users may find the Hazel the perfect cure for nostalgia. Monster gadgets like the Vivaz and the XPERIA X10 are trusted to get the brand back on track. But for all we know, it takes a good old-fashioned slider to rekindle the romance.The Hazel falls in the company’s GreenHeart line of phones. The echo-friendly vibe is perhaps supposed to make up for the missing Cybershot and Walkman magic. The green credentials are all there anyway. The phone is made of recycled plastics and uses waterborne paint. There’s a power-efficient charger in the tiny, shipping-optimized retail box and no user guide (it’s on the phone’s memory instead of being printed on paper).GreenHeart is Sony Ericsson’s way of saying they care. We all do – but a phone is as likely to save the planet as it is to give you a direct line to Elvis. Either way, it’s not the phone’s fault. So, the Sony Ericsson Hazel will be considered for what it is and what it does. Not for the color of its heart.The Sony Ericsson Hazel isn’t just another feature phone. It can’t afford it on a market like today’s where cheap smartphones and touchscreen lurk behind every corner. GreenHeart implies some sacrifices but users won’t have to give up on phone features. The Hazel is a high-performance handset with an ample 2.6” mineral glass covered scratch-resistant display solid imaging and all sorts of connectivity options.

Sony Ericsson Elm disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionIt’s not like good old-fashioned phones with buttons are going extinct – they are still the money makers. But for handsets such as the Sony Ericsson Elm sneaking into the spotlight is harder than ever – Androids, Symbians, iPhones, smart and not so smart touchscreens are all over the place. Well, one thing’s for sure – a break is welcome once in a while.Cybershot and Walkman are out of the Sony Ericsson mix, and the doubters are perhaps busy telling you GreenHeart will never be able to rise to the same heights. It’s a completely different market and matching iconic, game-changing phones like the K750 and the W800 is out of the question really. But we’re not here to look back at what used to be. It’s a market were rules are set by touch-screen phones and handsets like the Sony Ericsson Elm do deserve credit for trying to find their own spot under the sun.The Sony Ericsson Elm and its slider sibling Hazel are flying the green flag to lead the company’s evolving feature phone lineup. We caught a glimpse of both already but let’s now invite Sony Ericsson Elm over again and take a closer look.It has all the premium features you may get these days – 3G connectivity with light-speed data, Wi-Fi with DLNA support, GPS receiver and microSD memory expansion. Just like its GreenHeart forerunner – the C901 – the Elm is easily one of the top 5-megapixel cameraphones out there. The upgrade to VGA video @ 30 fps shows even more hidden power.Here is the full spec sheet with all deal breakers we’ve managed to spot.Key features2.2" 256K-color TFT screen, 240 x 320 pixelsQuad-band GSM supportDual-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash; geotagging, face detection; VGA@30fps video recordingBuilt-in GPS receiver with A-GPS; Trial version of Wisepilot navigation softwareWi-Fi with DLNAFM radio with RDSStereo Bluetooth 2.1microSD card slot, 280 MB internal memoryEco-friendly package and materialsSocial networking integration, widget enhanced interfaceNetFront v3.5 web browser with full Flash supportSplash-resistant bodyNoise cancellationExcellent audio qualityMain disadvantagesNo standard USB portNo bundled data cable or memory cardNo 3.5mm audio jackKinda short Wi-Fi receiver rangeNo DivX/XviD video supportNo document viewerNo xenon flashNo camera lens coverFeeble loudspeakerExpensive navigation after the trial period expiresThe shortcomings are too specific an[...]



Sony Ericsson C901 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionAt first, you might think that the Sony Ericsson C901 is just another 5-megapixel cameraphone. Well, that’s not terribly exciting in the current market bustling with 8-megapixel snappers, and probing the boundaries at 12. But you’d be wrong. Be it for the simple reason that the C901 is one of the few handsets out there sporting a Xenon flash. And the one on the C901 is special enough to help it stand above the crowd of cameraphones.Another thing to note is the eco-friendly GreenHeart version  which - interestingly enough - is the only C901 flavor currently available on the Sony Ericsson website.The C901 GreenHeart is trendy for being partially made of recycled materials (though, technically both devices are identical). You can find out more about it here.Even after reading those lines many would say there is nothing so special about the C901, particularly as it’s not even selling worldwide! Well, we‘ve been inundated with requests that we review it and there’s nothing we like doing more than pleasing our loyal readers.Key featuresXenon and LED flash equipped 5-megapixel cameraphone, videocalling Lots of dedicated camera controls Active camera cover Quad-band GSM support 3G with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps 2.2" 256K-color display of QVGA resolution Accelerometer for screen auto-rotation 110 MB of internal memory, M2 expansion (up to 8GB) Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP Stereo FM radio with RDS Motion-based games Multi-tasking and task manager Smart dialing Main disadvantagesVideo recording maxes out at QVGA@30fps No document viewer Memory card slot under the battery cover Disappointing retail package contents The Sony Ericsson C901 is a great value in terms of image quality. Looking at the pictures we took with it makes us nostalgic for the time when Sony Ericsson camerphones set the pace and the others just followed.Aside from the remarkable imaging though, the C901 is just an ordinary feature phone. And that isn’t a bad thing, since it does its job just fine. Very little to complain about, but at the same time not a huge list of features to get excited about either.Anyhow, it’s about time we opened the box and started the review, don’t you think? Head for the next page to see what we found in the box and what we thought of the Sony Ericsson C901 design and construction.[...]



Sony Ericsson Aino disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionSony Ericsson are on the move recently and the Aino is very much part of the agenda. But living in the shadow of the Satio and X10 is not much fun we guess. So, the Sony Ericsson Aino is keen to live a double life. At first glance, it's a touchscreen PMP, but on a second look it's a regular slider phone with an extra big screen. It's not the ultimate PlayStation phone but it does have Remote Play, to wirelessly pair with Sony's PlayStation 3.As far as feature phones go, the Aino has pretty much everything - excellent connectivity, full-featured navigation, a great camera, plenty of internal storage and a simple-but-snappy touch media menu. By the way, don't let anyone tell you touchscreen functionality is limited to the proprietary Sony Ericsson multimedia menu. We were pleasantly surprised with Opera Mini, which seemed to quite agree with the Aino touch system. Touchscreen navigation is all there and it performed very smoothly. This means touch controlled Java games might work as well.All right, this was just a single little secret revealed. Let's take a closer look at what else the Aino may be hiding there.Key features3" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen, 240 x 432 pixels Quad-band GSM support Tri-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash; geotagging, touch-focus, face detection, image stabilization; VGA video recording @ 30fps Some degree of touchscreen functionality - touch-enabled media and camera interface Touch works in Java apps as well, e.g. Opera Mini Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS; Trial version of Wisepilot navigation software Wi-Fi with DLNA FM radio with RDS Stereo Bluetooth 2.1 microSD card slot Wireless Bluetooth headset with 3.5 mm audio jack and nice headphones, desktop docking station and 8GB microSD card in box Remote play for Playstation 3 Main disadvantagesNo standard USB port No 3.5mm audio jack (but there's one on the Bluetooth headset) Touch control is limited to camera, gallery, multimedia players and some Java apps Media library updates very slowly in the touch media menu No DivX/XviD support No xenon flash No camera lens cover The box contents are a sweat deal too - the matching desk stand and wireless headset would fetch a pretty high price as a separate purchase, but with Aino they are part of the experience. And the 8GB microSD card in the box should be enough for most people.Uncomfortable qu[...]



Samsung S8530 Wave II disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.497-07:00

IntroductionThey shall come in wave upon wave. Or so it seemed in the beginning. Samsung certainly wanted a strong start for their own Bada OS and they had it. It is usual for sequels to be questioned and belittled. That’s one thing the Wave II doesn’t have to worry about. It’s bigger and heavier than the original.When the second gen phone has a familiar sounding model name with an actual ordinal number in it – that doesn’t mean a complete lack of imagination. It’s a way to promote continuity. The Wave II has this base covered too – it’s nearly the same phone as the first Wave but presumably upgraded to reach to a more high-end market segment. Here’s a quick recap of its specs: Key features·                 3.7" 16M-color Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen, WVGA (480 x 800 pixels), multi-touch input, scratch-resistant glass surface·                 Slim and solid metal body·                 Bada OS 1.2 with Samsung Apps·                 ARM Cortex A8 based 1GHz CPU·                 Quad-band GSM support with dual-band HSPA·                 Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n connectivity with WPS support, Wi-Fi tethering ·                 Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, digital compass, Samsung LBS powered by ROUTE 66·                 5 MP autofocus camera with touch focus and LED flash, geotagging, face, smile and blink detection ·                 720p video recording at 30fps·                 2GB internal storage, microSDHC card slot·                 Standard microUSB port and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP ·         &n[...]



Samsung S8500 Wave disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.498-07:00

IntroductionSmartphone for the masses or feature phone of the future? Samsung would gladly have it either way. The question rather is, will the Bada OS keep up the pace of its debut device. We’ve been following the new smart platform since its first public appearance. It’s not a particularly hard one to follow anyway, with a single phone announced so far and potential successors of the Samsung S8500 Wave only a whisper of a rumor.It will certainly take more – and equally convincing – devices for Bada to do as well as Samsung want it to. Proper developer support and a fast growing app store will be a must too. So, it’ll take hard work but there’s something to be optimistic about – the firstborn is promising. OK, cautiously optimistic is more like it with Android, Windows Phone 7 or Symbian ^3 predators lurking around.We’re about to see what the Samsung S8500 Wave is really capable of. We’re getting ready to enjoy it. The S8500 Wave did well in our preview and - fingers crossed - unpleasant surprises are not on today’s menu. The OS is trying to combine feature-phone ease of use with the versatility of smartphones. The Super AMOLED touchscreen is the envy of the industry, with image quality that no other phone display could match.Being the first of a kind has its implications. Some may be willing to forgive a few flaws but a brand new OS needs a flagship capable of facing up to the competition. The S8500 Wave fits the bill. Trademark Samsung exterior and premium build are inviting enough to encourage exploring a wealth of features.Key features3.3" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, WVGA (480 x 800 pixels), multi-touch input support, scratch-resistant glass surfaceSolid 10.9mm-thin metal body Bada OS with Samsung AppsARM Cortex A8 based 1GHz CPUQuad-band GSM support with dual-band 3.6Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n connectivity with WPS support, Wi-Fi tethering appBuilt-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, digital compass, Samsung Mobile Navigator5 MP autofocus camera with touch focus, geo-tagging, face, smile and blink detection and LED flash720p video recording at 30fps 390MB user available memory, 1GB Bada apps storage and 550MB messaging storage microSDHC card slotStandard microUSB port and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP Standard 3.5mm audio jack, TV outStereo FM radio with RDS, FM recordingWebkit-based Samsung Dolphin Bro[...]



Samsung S8300 UltraTOUCH disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.498-07:00

IntroductionSamsung S8300 UltraTOUCH, otherwise dubbed as the Tocco Ultra edition, joins in on the bandwagon of full touch handsets that seem to be occupying the upper range of the market quite successfully. Nothing can compare to the ease of use of a touchscreen phone - given the user interface is done right. And Samsung have put a lot of effort in their proprietary TouchWiz interface.The Samsung S8300 UltraTOUCH is definitely among the most exciting devices that saw daylight during this year's MWC. We took a closer look at its beta-version and were impressed but the final one is even more impressive. No-one's claiming it's perfect, but it certainly has plenty to show off about.The handset is known under different names across the world. You may hear people calling it UltraTOUCH, Tocco Ultra Edition (or Tocco Ultra) or just the S8300. But regardless of the name it's hiding behind, there's still the same classy touchscreen slider with an alphanumeric keypad. Key features:Classy touchscreen slider with an alphanumeric keypad Commendable build quality Quad-band GSM and 3G with HSDPA support 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, image stabilization, wide dynamic range and D1 video@30 fps 2.8" 16M color AMOLED touchscreen display with 400 x 240 pixel resolution Anti-scratch screen surface Accelerometer for screen auto rotate Proximity sensor for auto screen turn-off MicroSD card slot (up to 16 GB), 1 GB included Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, Google Maps Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) DivX/XviD video support Stereo FM radio with RDS, FM recording Document viewer Photo Contact Smart dialing Main disadvantagesUser interface sometimes lags Slow initializing of large microSD cards Limited options for third-party GPS navigation software No virtual on-screen QWERTY keyboard Memory card isn't hot swappable No Wi-Fi connectivity Battery cover gets scratched easily It's been a year since the announcement of the first device of this kind, the LG KF700. The Samsung S8300 takes over where the KF700 left off and attempts a huge leap forward. Just like the LG phone, the S8300 UltraTOUCH is a slick touchscreen slider with an alphanumeric keypad allowing users to experience the joy of having a touchscreen-equipped device without [...]



Samsung S8000 Jet disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.498-07:00

IntroductionIt's that time of the year and the living is easy: pool parties, blockbuster movies and new gadgets. The Samsung S8000 Jet sure knows good timing and gallantly promises a bit of everything - style, entertainment and impressively light and lively handling. It's a thing to show off to your friends and help you enjoy and capture the hot moments of the season.The S8000 Jet is not exactly jet set stuff but claims a big piece of the touchscreen action. And it knows who it needs to kill to get it. The Jet is the direct and brave answer to the LG KM900 Arena and boy isn't it a tough call between these two. The S8000 Jet has the fancy 3D interface upgrade, 5MP camera with D1 recording, Wi-Fi, GPS and all the stuff to put this touchscreen phone in the desirable category. We have a thriller of a local derby and the high-end contenders need to do everything and do it well.We were impressed in our preview with the new visual upgrades of the TouchWiz interface, which combine the best part of the 3D LG cube and page-organized iPhone menus. But now it's time for the final and deciding round with the Samsung S800 Jet.Here is the full ammo of the S8000 Jet, along with what might be the deal breakers.Key features3.1" 16M-color resistive AMOLED touchscreen of 800 x 480 pixel resolution 800 MHz processor 5 megapixel auto focus camera with dual-LED Geotagging, image stabilization, face detection, Smile Shot, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Latest TouchWiz 2.0 UI with Motion UI, Media Gate 3D, Smart Unlock Quad-band GSM support and 3G with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps and HSUPA support Wi-Fi GPS receiver 2 / 8 GB onboard storage microSD card slot with microSDHC support Built-in accelerometer for screen auto rotate and turn-to-mute Proximity sensor for display auto turn-off TV out 3.5 mm audio jack Stereo FM Radio with RDS microUSB port and stereo Bluetooth v2.0 Web browser has full Flash and Java support DivX/XviD video support DNSe and SRS sound effect Smart dialing Speaker Call Main disadvantagesmicroSD slot is under the back cover No preinstalled GPS navigation software As the specs suggest, the Samsung S8000 Jet is nothing short of a multimedia monster.

Samsung S7550 Blue Earth disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.498-07:00

IntroductionA blue earth it is. We mean there's no need to tell you our home planet is not quite in the pink. So, before you go on reading, you might want to turn off the lights and the telly, and go pick up a wind turbine and a bunch of solar panels at the local DIY. Forget where you put the car keys? Good, get the bike. Samsung says thanks.OK, now seriously. Maybe it's good to know you're not the only one using recycled paper, composting your garbage and flushing the toilet responsibly. Samsung are perhaps really trying to encourage the effort. The S7550 Blue Earth is a gadget that gives much credence to the likely growth of eco-friendly products and technology.The Samsung Blue Earth is a solar powered, eco-friendly phone that promotes green thinking. It's made of recycled water bottles, has an ultra low standby power DC charger and comes in a reusable box made of recycled paper. The first solar-powered touchscreen has a special "eco mode" to use the display in an energy efficient manner. The accelerometer-based step counter has a new spin to it too. It calculates how much CO2 would have been released if you drove instead of walked.Another quite appropriate feature is the Eco Day list in the calendar, which gives you all the environment-related dates celebrated around the world. Without the Samsung Blue Earth we'd still be ignorant enough not to know what day is today. OK, not in that sense, but we honestly had no idea that September 16th is the World Ozone Day. So, take a deep breath, congratulate us on our timing and get ready for the Samsung S7550 Blue Earth.Key featuresSolar panel for battery chargingGSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 3.6MbpsCommendable build quality3" capacitive TFT touchscreen, WQVGA resolution (240 x 400 pixels)180MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB)Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS support3.15 megapixel fixed focus camera with smile detection and QVGA @ 30fps video recordingBluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, USB v.2.0Document viewerExchange ActiveSync supportSmart unlockAccelerometer sensorFM radio with RDSMusic recognition service1080 mAh batteryMain disadvantagesCould've been slightly thinnerThe screen is poorly visible in the sun3 MP fixed focus camera is outdatedGrip and handling compromised by the solar pa[...]



Samsung S7350 Ultra s disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.499-07:00

IntroductionThe Samsung S7350 Ultra s may as well be your next phone. Oh well, maybe no one will know but if you can live with that, you'll get to enjoy a solid and attractive slider with a nice screen, premium data speeds and high-end media. Following in the wake of the standard-setting Soul, the Samsung S7350 Ultra s adds a larger and more vivid screen, improved video recording and GPS to sweeten the deal. Or more likely - to be in step with its time.The tremendous Soul footprint in the Samsung portfolio is not the point here. We're watching the new midrange take shape. Less prominent but more capable than yesterday's high-end seems to be the way it's going. Is it a fair trade - we guess we're about to see.Key featuresQuad-band GSM and dual-band (900/2100 MHz) UMTS with HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) support Large 2.6" 16M-color TFT display of WQVGA(400x240) resolution 12.6mm thick 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, Wide Dynamic Range and geotagging D1 video at 30 fps and slow-motion video recording Built-in GPS with A-GPS support Stereo FM radio with RDS Hot-swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB) Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP microUSB v2.0, charging through USB Accelerometer sensor DivX and XviD support Basic Java multitasking Office document viewer Smart dialing Main disadvantagesNo full-featured voice-guided navigation software Inadequate flash performance Video recording quality isn't up to scratch (although the framerate is pretty good) Initial memory card initialization is quite slow Back in February when we first previewed the Samsung S7350 Ultra s, the future looked bright for this stylish slider. We're now about to embark on a full review to see how it all worked out. Since the early stages of its development, the Ultra s (also known as UltraSlide) has seen a number of changes. We guess we need to draw the line and look at the finished piece.All right, the journey ahead of us may not hold a whole lot of promise for discovery but we hope we get some mileage out of it for fun and action. We're back right after this jump and we'll slide it up, spin it off and watch it do its thing. Let's see how friendly, reliable and skilled this Ultra slider is.[...]



Samsung S7230E Wave 723 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.499-07:00

IntroductionIt’s been smooth sailing for Samsung’s Bada OS and the Samsung S7230E Wave 723 is one of the first of the lineup aimed at the mass market. But beware, this smartphone may change the way you perceive feature phones forever.While amazing, the S8500 Wave costs a pretty penny. It did a great job of attracting attention to the new platform (selling a million units in four weeks), but Samsung designed Bada to be the “smartphone OS for the masses”, so the relatively high priced S8500 wouldn’t be enough on its own.Enter the Samsung S7230E Wave 723. It’s one of the first mid-range models and while it preserves some of the features from the S8500, it drops others and its lower price will help further the adoption of Bada.Here’s the report on what’s in and what’s out of the Samsung S7230E Wave 723 spec sheet.Key features·                 3.2" 256K-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, WQVGA (240 x 400 pixels), multi-touch input support·                 Solid 11.8mm-thin metal body with detachable protective flap with leather texture·                 Bada OS with Samsung Apps·                 Quad-band GSM support with dual-band 7.2Mbps HSDPA ·                 Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n connectivity with WPS support, Wi-Fi tethering app·                 Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, digital compass, Samsung Mobile Navigator·                 5 MP autofocus camera with touch focus, geo-tagging, smile detection and LED flash·                 QVGA@15fps video recording·                 90MB user available memory; microSDHC card slot·      &[...]



Samsung S7220 Ultra b disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.499-07:00

IntroductionSharp looks and decent kit, Samsung S7220 Ultra b is one of those handsets that would rather do the job than do the talk. Not so long ago, the S7220 Ultra b could've been basking in the Soul kind of hype. Instead, today it quietly sits in the middle of Samsung's portfolio, ready to cash in without fanfare. Samsung S7220 Ultra b knows to keep a low profile - and that's a compliment for a phone with a stunning screen and distinct styling. But it sure knows to keep up with the pace of the evolving midrange and takes a prominent face so you don't get lost in the crowd. In a busy corner of the market, it takes a few aces up the sleeve to keep the competition at a safe distance. The first impressions when we previewed the Samsung S7220 Ultra b back in February were very encouraging but let's see how it stands the test of a full review.Key featuresQuad-band GSM and dual-band (900/2100 MHz) UMTS with HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) support 2.2" 256K-color AMOLED display of QVGA resolution 11.8mm thickness 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, Smile detection, Wide dynamic range and geotagging Built-in GPS with A-GPS support Stereo FM radio with RDS Hot-swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB) Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP microUSB v2.0, charging through USB Accelerometer sensor Basic Java multitasking Office document viewer Smart dialing Main disadvantagesSmallish display Small and fiddly soft keys No camera lens protection No full-featured voice-guided navigation software Inadequate flash performance QVGA video recording only The most prominent feature of the Samsung S7220 Ultra b is its AMOLED display that sets it apart from the majority of market rivals. The excellent screen quality is topped by a pretty capable 5-megapixel autofocus camera. The nice metallic finish and the distinctive styling do give the Samsung S7220 Ultra b a bit of an edge against its competitors. The decent feature set and the solid looks make it a credible contender in the midrange. Hit the jump to start exploring the Samsung S7220 Ultra b. Bear in mind that while in different parts of the world the handset is known under various names, such as UltraCLASSIC, Lucido and Eltz, we [...]



Samsung S5620 Monte disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.499-07:00

IntroductionAffordable touch phones are all over the place so the Samsung S5620 Monte will have to win the old fashioned way – by giving more and better features. Done deal: with full-suit connectivity, the Monte aims to deliver great touch experience and social networking features plus some distinguishable styling.The Samsung S5620 Monte has both 3G with HSDPA and Wi-Fi for browsing and data, and a built-in GPS receiver for location services. The Monte has a capable web browser (with Flash support) and a decently sized 3” screen. The GPS can also transform the Monte into a proper SatNav unit thanks to the free NaviExpert app. However, the free license is available for phones sold in the Czech Republic.For the impatient readers, here’s a rundown of the Samsung S5620 specs – the good and bad of it.Key featuresQuad-band GSM/EDGE, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 3.6 Mbps 3" capacitive TFT touchscreen of WQVGA resolution, 256K colors TouchWiz 2.0 Plus user interface with multitasking support200 MB onboard storage, hot-swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB) 3 megapixel camera with smile detection, QVGA video @ 15fps Secondary video-call camera Wi-Fi connectivity (b/g)GPS receiver with A-GPS; Free GPS navigation with NAVTEQ mapsBluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, USB v.2.0 microUSB slot (with charging support)Standard 3.5 mm audio jack DNSe sound enhancementsFind Music recognition service FM radio with RDS Office document viewer Smart unlock Social networking integration with direct file uploads Accelerometer for auto screen rotate, turn to muteMain disadvantagesFree GPS navigation is for Czech Montes onlyNo on-screen QWERTY keyboard Flash in browser eats too much RAM, can’t play YouTube videosNo games preinstalledTask manager cannot be used for switching between appsIf you’ve read our preview you’d know the S5620 Monte was orange-on-grey back then. Samsung have obviously changed their mind since and put a tux on the Monte – it’s now grey on black – a bit more conservative.The preview was written before the Samsung Bada OS came about but now that we’ve played with it too, we can do a better comparison. The Monte is a feature phone and Bada is [...]



Samsung S5260 Star II disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.499-07:00

IntroductionYou must remember this one – maybe not by face but certainly by name. The Samsung S5260 Star II has some big shoes to fill: over 10 million units sold propelled the predecessor to Stardom. The original Samsung Star was one of the most popular handsets in the early days of affordable touch phones. For the sequel, the count-up to 10 million has begun but this time around customers are harder to please.Maybe this is part of the reason why it took Samsung over two years to release the Star II. An upgrade is certainly in order and it’d better be worth it. Here’s what the Star II is bringing to the table in short: Key features·                 GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12 ·                 Dimensions: 107.5 x 54 x 12.4 mm, 94 g ·                 3" capacitive TFT touchscreen, WQVGA resolution (240 x 400 pixels) ·                 TouchWiz 3.0 UI·                 30MB onboard storage·                 Hot-swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB) ·                 3.5mm audio jack·                 3 megapixel fixed focus camera with smile detection ·                 Wi-Fi·                 Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP·                 microUSB v2.0 ·                 Document viewer ·     &n[...]



Samsung S5230 Star disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.500-07:00

IntroductionSamsung are going to great lengths to pile pressure on the LG Cookie. While the Samsung S5600 Preston aims to outdo it, the 5230 Star is set for a head-on collision course. This starlet's middle name is Tocco Lite and that's plenty to live up to.The name itself is no shortcut to stardom but the Tocco pedigree certainly brings with it certain expectations of quality. So will this little Star still be going strong a year from launch? The S5230 certainly has all the ingredients, now all we need to do is see if Samsung has got the mix right.Add a dash of touchscreen and nifty unlock, a pinch of smart looks and document viewer, DNSe and smile shutter to taste. Samsung's widget-wielding TouchWiz makes reading the recipe a cinch.It's a dish that's already proving popular - the Star is already shifting over a million units per month and Samsung expect to total 10 million sold by the end of the year. Certainly an ambitious plan, but they just might pull it off - the Star is set to become one of Samsung's bestsellers. Samsung S5230 main features:GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12 Dimensions: 104.0 x 53.0 x 11.9 mm, 93.5 g 3" resistive TFT touchscreen, WQVGA resolution (240 x 400 pixels) 50MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB) 3 megapixel fixed focus camera with smile detection Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, USB v.2.0 Document viewer Smart unlock Accelerometer sensor FM radio with RDS DNSe Find Music recognition service 1000 mAh battery, up to 800 h of standby Main disadvantagesNo 3G Proprietary connectivity port Slightly more expensive than the LG KP500 Cookie No way to directly switch between running apps The camera is quite basic - uninspiring picture quality, no autofocus or flash Non-hot-swappable microSD slot The Star offers a basic touchscreen package with little to no access to top-of-the-line technology. It still knows a trick or two though and is keen to treat the masses to Smart Unlock. It was initially dubbed Gesture lock but in the end Samsung went for Smart instead. This feature lets users unlock the S5230 Star and even launch [...]

Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.500-07:00

IntroductionNot so long ago the tablet was a futureless species, stuck in an evolutionary dead-end. The technology and the the operating systems didn't offer the right balance of portability and usability to suit its needs. But just look at it now... It was the Apple iPad that made the first splash and many other tablets are on their way on following its steps. We guess Samsung’s had an easier job than Apple bringing it to market. They already had the Samsung Galaxy S in the works and just had to make it bigger. Plus, they didn’t need to go to great lengths explaining what a tablet is and what it does.If nothing else, the Galaxy Tab makes the S in Galaxy S meaningful. But the Tab itself is not size XL. In a nutshell, the new Samsung tablet is a Galaxy S with 3 inches added to the screen and 2 megapixels taken away from the camera. The Tab is equipped with the same 1GHz Hummingbird processor and PowerVR SGX540 graphics accelerator, 512MB RAM, a complete connectivity set and 16GB internal storage.

Samsung M5650 Lindy disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.501-07:00

IntroductionYou just couldn't have missed the Samsung Corby. Dirty cheap phone with replaceable rear covers and more clones than features. That's the one. Newsflash: the outbreak of cheap as chips touchscreen handsets continues now that we have the Lindy - fresh off Corby's rib. Here's the deal. Samsung want to put a touchscreen in every pocket but the Lindy is also trying to give fast data and WLAN to the masses. It's all Corby on the surface - to the extent that you will want to put some of Corby's fashion jackets on the Lindy. They won't fit but that's not the point. The point is the Lindy is a plain and friendly touchscreen that puts a bargain price on all-round functionality.Someone at Samsung must be in love with the Corby concept since the family is getting bigger by the day. The number of Corby sequels is beyond belief: the QWERTY packing CorbyPRO and CorbyTXT were followed by the Wi-Fi enabled, but still rumored S3650W and - finally - out came the M5650 Lindy. Not to mention the several handsets that don't exactly follow the same design outline but have the same naming in certain regions - Samsung B3313 Corby Mate, Samsung CorbyPlus B3410 and Samsung C3510 Corby Pop.The Samsung Lindy however inherits all the traditions of the original - neat and friendly plasticky design, rich social integration, modern interface with the optional cartoonish graphics on top and the most important thing - a capacitive touchscreen with an affordable price. But like all the other new members of the family, the Lindy tries to break out of the clone syndrome by offering its own special powers. Wi-Fi connectivity, 3.5 mm audio jack and dedicated music keys put it well above the basic Corby.Key featuresQuad-band GSM/EDGE, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps 2.8" capacitive TFT touchscreen of QVGA resolution, 256K colors 50 MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 8GB) 3 megapixel camera with smile detection, QVGA video @ 15fps Secondary video-call camera Dedicated music controls on the front panel Wi-Fi connectivity Bluet[...]



Samsung Infuse 4G disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.501-07:00

IntroductionIn America, it is widely believed that bigger is better. Or so Samsung must have thought when they decided to launch the phone with the biggest and brightest screen first in the United States, and with the biggest network – AT&T. The Samsung Infuse 4G is definitely meant to stand out – its 4.5” Super AMOLED Plus screen is nearly unmatched on the market, and a beauty to look at. It makes 4-inchers look petty and irrelevant.Despite its humongous screen, the Samsung Infuse 4G has an impressively thin body. At 8.99 mm, it is only a tad thicker than a Galaxy S2. It does have an excuse though – it’s packing a larger screen than the current Samsung flagship. That’s the spirit.Key Features·                 Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support·                 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support·                 4.5" 16M-color Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution·                 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 512 MB of RAM·                 8 MP wide-angle lens auto focus camera with LED flash, face, smile and blink detection·                 720p video recording at 30fps·                 Dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g and n support·                 GPS with A-GPS connectivity; Digital compass·                 16GB internal storage,[...]

A phone that makes you love the smell of Android in the morning.The likes of Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II make it easy to get carried away. But wait a minute. There’s nothing quite like the Galaxy II. The brightest stars on the smartphone scene have graced our homepage, but this one is trying to eclipse them all. The Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II is in no mood to share – the spoils or the spotlight.With a spec sheet like that, it’s a beast of a droid.

Samsung I9010 Galaxy S Giorgio Armani disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.501-07:00

IntroductionIt’s not the suit that makes a man and it’s certainly not a big fat logo that makes a phone. To be honest, the last thing Android needs to boost its credit with users is a big designer name. But for a change, this is one of the rare examples when a smartphone is not being eclipsed by a fashion phone.What we have here is a limited edition fashion item – there’s no doubt about that. But it’s got a better purpose than blind you with bling. The phone has it all: impressive hardware, commanding looks and excellent build. The important thing though is you don’t care if it’s the Galaxy S or Armani taking credit.Super specs combined with beautiful finish, a dazzling Super AMOLED display in an impressively thin package – a combination like that simply cannot go wrong. The Galaxy S line has long been committed to delivering high performance. With the Armani touch, looks and build quality are catching up. You can have anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. The Samsung I9010 Galaxy S Giorgio Armani is anything but cheap.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support·                 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support·                 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution·                 Android OS v2.2 with TouchWiz launcher·                 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird platform; 512 MB of RAM·                 5 MP autofocus camera with face, smile and blink detection[...]

IntroductionSuccess breeds imitation and we have the next Galaxy S remake to bear witness. But make no mistake about it – the Samsung I9003 Galaxy SL is not just another clone. This time changes aren’t just skin deep.We are talking a new screen, a new CPU and a different battery here. Although it’s actually hard to notice a difference on the outside, save for a slightly thicker body. Basically most of the internals have been replaced, which may have or may have not resulted in a significant change in the user experience.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ·                 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ·                 4" 16M-color Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ·                 Slim 10.9mm profile·                 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU, TI OMAP 3630 chipset; 478MB of RAM available to the user·                 5 MP autofocus camera with face, smile and blink detection ·                 720p HD video recording at 30fps ·                 Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g and n support ·                 GPS with A-GPS connectivity; Digital compass ·      &nbs[...]

IntroductionOur homepage is the natural home of the deadliest smartphone carnivores. We normally don’t mind but this time is different. Are we about to start feeling a wee bit nervous or what. It’s a beast that tops the food chain, instilling fear and terror into the hearts of its prey. Our test lab is Jurassic Park, and the next predator we are about to meet is the T-Rex. Luckily we have a team of skilled keepers, capable of taming it.The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S has so much muscle that trying to impose your will with brute force is pointless.

Samsung i8910 Omnia HD disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.502-07:00

IntroductionThere never seems a shortage of heroes in this industry but every now and then a new breed emerges to change the rules of engagement. Ranks and titles are hard earned and we've seen enough contenders that barely deserve a hero's death. Now, here comes a gadget that knows the best shot at glory is the high-definition one. Will the Samsung Omnia HD be strong enough to bear its name with honor or will it crumble under the weight of expectations? As all-in-one multimedia touchscreens are battling for dominance, the HD category is now making its way to cellphones. HD is a magical marketing word that has seen as many abuses as it has had just uses. In the Omnia HD case, it's an insignia of its truly superior rank. It's not the first time a handset has claimed this tempting acronym, but the Omnia HD hits it where it matters - video recording and playback.Samsung were the first to announce and release an HD-video-enabled handset. In the not so short time since then, none of their major rivals managed to introduce a competitor. So, all heads are anxiously turned to Samsung to see if they can deliver.By the way, the Omnia HD comes equipped with everything that Samsung can put on the table. HD video recording and playback is definitely top-notch stuff but these are just the fancy extras on a full battle suit. There's also a huge AMOLED screen, powerful 600 MHz processor and dedicated graphics chip. The all-in-one count continues with an 8 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, generous 8/16 GB internal storage and DivX/XviD HD playback with subtitle support. Finally, the whole thing runs the latest Symbian S60 5th edition skinned with the new TouchWiz 3D interface.Take the time to check out this genuine all-rounder. Key features:3.7-inch 16M-color capacitive AMOLED touchscreen, 640 x 360 pixels Symbian S60 5th edition with TouchWiz 3D UI ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz process[...]



Samsung I8700 Omnia 7 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.502-07:00

IntroductionThough it might seem like a chicken-and-egg situation, the question in our case never was which one came first: Windows Phone 7 or the Samsung I8700 Omnia 7. We know you’re all adding two and two together. Our Windows Phone 7 review was based on this Samsung Omnia 7 here. You can’t blame the OS for taking unfair advantage but you can’t deny the fact either that a Super AMOLED screen can make anything look good.Not that we’re saying that Windows Phone 7 is just anything. And of course, it just can’t and won’t be anything you want it to be. But that’s not the whole story. Let’s just say Microsoft are in charge of the numerology and leaving it to manufacturers to do the math.And it’s simple but expensive math. WVGA screens, 1 GHz processors and dedicated GPUs are the minimum requirements for any set to run the brand new OS. Let’s just repeat that – those are the MINIMUM requirements.No wonder then, the Samsung I8700 Omnia 7 has no choice but to be the Galaxy S of the new Windows phones. It has the same 4 inches of a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon powerplant and it captures 5 megapixel photos and records HD videos. If there was one thing to hold against the I9000 Galaxy S it had to be the plastic finish. But Samsung listened to their customers and gave the Omnia 7 the same get-up as the first Bada phone.So, the Omnia 7 seems to have it all to make a grand entrance – premium build, powerful hardware and a brand new OS are all thrown into the mix. We can hardly think of any weak spots on the chassis.Key features·                 Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support·                 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support·   &nb[...]



Samsung I8000 Omnia II disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.502-07:00

IntroductionSamsung's top tier of Omnia devices is populated by some seriously heavy-hitters - first the 720p video recording Omnia HD and now the Omnia II - with its best-in-the-business display, WM 6.5, zippy prout the features of the Omnia II but here they are in a bullet list, which should be easier to readcessor and preloaded software galore, it will certainly win the hearts and minds of Windows Mobile fans. It's no secret that the Samsung Omnia II has the HTC Touch Diamond2 in its sights. The Omnia II has several advantages, not the least of which is the amazing 3.7" AMOLED WVGA display. For the acronym-allergic - WVGA means 480 x 800 pixels resolution, which several years ago might have been considered acceptable for a computer monitor. That resolution is not so uncommon today, the exciting part here is "AMOLED" - active matrix organic LED. Or in plain English - brilliant picture quality. It doesn't end there - the 800MHz CPU is one of the speediest around and the available capacities of up to 16GB built-in memory and up to 32GB external storage via microSD card offer more than enough memory expansion. There's Wi-Fi and GPS, the autofocus camera shoots 5MP stills and D1 video at 30fps and has dual-LED flash, there's DivX playback out of the box and HSDPA and HSUPA push the phone to great wireless speeds. We can spend a lot of time talking abo. Key features:3.7-inch 65K-color resistive AMOLED touchscreen, 480 x 800 pixels Windows Mobile 6.5 with TouchWiz UI 2.0 and Media Gate 3D Samsung S3C6410 800MHz processor; HW Graphic Accelerator 256MB RAM 5 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash, geotagging, face detection, smile shot, image stabilizer, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Records video in D1@30fps, QVGA slow-mo video recording Tri-ba[...]



Samsung I7500 Galaxy disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.503-07:00

IntroductionAndroid is set on grabbing the number two spot in the smartphone market by 2012 and the Samsung I7500 Galaxy might be the type of phone to get it there. Perhaps less for the Galaxy at this point, and more for the Samsung, but we'll see about that. The I7500 Galaxy is a "Google experience" phone, and has the intrinsic advantage of having the search giant's infrastructure behind its back. For one, YouTube and Picasa integration sure add value to the 5-megapixel camera.And as to people who spend their time digging around the Internet for oft hard to find information, we really appreciate the improved search widget. And that thingy is about to get better - Android is a bit like Google's other projects, a perpetual work in progress that keeps getting new features and polishes the occasional rough edges.The I7500 Galaxy is the company's first take on Android but if we put the OS aside, it should be a solid Samsung touchscreen with all the gadgetry we've got used to in smartphones. Of course, the Android platform still has a few issues to address and get some annoying limitations out of the way. Let's see what this here Android by Samsung can do for you and where it might fail. Key featuresQuad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76Mbps Android OS v1.5 (codenamed Cupcake) without customizations 3.2" capacitive AMOLED touchscreen of HVGA resolution Qualcomm MSM72000A 528MHz CPU, 128MB RAM 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, geo-tagging, YouTube and Picasa integration Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and GPS receiver Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate and turn-to-mute Digital compass for automatic navigation of maps Standard microUSB port for charging and data microSD card slot with microSDHC support 8GB [...]



Samsung I5700 Galaxy Spica disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.503-07:00

IntroductionSamsung had a slow start in Android but they are making up for it with some impressive high-tech devices. But the All-star team is certainly not leaving anyone behind and the Galaxy Spica just got its update to the latest Android 2.1. Now it's as ready as ever to hit the competition. And it hits hard. Devices like the I9000 Galaxy S and the I8520 Beam certainly have the lead but it's down to the foot soldiers to clean up the mess when super AMOLEDs, Snapdragon and WVGA projectors leave the scene.Speaking of those - you'll know that when it's Samsung and a Galaxy, the middle name is Android. It holds true for the I5700 Galaxy Spica much as it did for the first-born Samsung droid – the I7500 Galaxy.The Spica goes by the name of Galaxy Lite in some markets, but this has nothing to do with processing power.

Samsung Google Nexus S disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.503-07:00

IntroductionAnother year, another heir to the Droid throne – and Google are trying to be democratic about it. Which is a roundabout way of saying they’re not monogamous. For the Nexus One, Google teamed up with HTC. This time around, they trusted Samsung to do the job, using the Galaxy S as a base.It’s only their second try and users are given a second chance to like the Royal Droid. A tall task it is – the very concept is fundamentally incompatible with the free and open source Android system. Royal blood is not a benefit in a free democracy. Google did learn it the hard way with the Nexus One.Google’s second smartphone child has more than just an image problem to tackle. The Samsung Google Nexus S has to keep pace with the evolution of the platform. The “S” in the name may stand for many things – from second to superior. But with Android 2.3 Gingerbread inside, speed is not far from the truth either. Here’s what else the Nexus S has to offer in a nutshell.Key features:·                 Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support·                 HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps·                 4.0" WVGA (480x800) Super AMOLED Contour Display with curved glass screen ·                 Android OS, v2.3 Gingerbread·                 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 (Hummingbird) processor·         [...]

2011-10-27T18:49:29.503-07:00

IntroductionSamsung’s QWERTY messengers have not exactly been setting the world on fire. They have done well though to set the scene for this one.

Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.503-07:00

IntroductionMinis are supposed to be the cheaper, stripped down version of the bigger and superior gadgets. There’s a long list of bigger and superior siblings for the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 to choose from but it has its own two feet to stand on.So, the Galaxy Mini is the last shake of the bag. It will never get to rub shoulders with the big and scary smartphones. But it’s not all bad you know. Not bad at all actually for what basically is an entry level smartphone with complete connectivity, social networking, internet, Android apps and music. It’s the right kind of device for smartphone newbies. A good option if you just don’t want to spend a truck-load of money on a smartphone.Key Features·                 Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support·                 7.2 Mbps HSDPA·                 3.14” 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen ·                 ARMv6 600MHz processor, 384MB RAM ·                 Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz v3.0 UI·                 160MB internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot, 2GB card included·                 3.15 MP fixed-focus camera with geotagging·   &nb[...]

Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.505-07:00

IntroductionIt’s devices like the Samsung Galaxy Gio that helped Android gain so much ground in so little time. They are a better bargain than the uber-smartphone and find their way into people’s pockets a lot easier. With that goal in mind, the Galaxy Gio must be an all-round pleaser of a phone.They may soon be running out of names for the Galaxy lot. But it will be when number plates start to fall short that they’ll know they’re in trouble. Back to the point though. Boy number S5660 is called Gio. He’s a teenager – mischievous and fun, too young for a suit and tie.It’s a decent offer for the midrange: with a good enough version of Android (2.2.1 Froyo), good enough screen, a powerful 800MHz processor and a great connectivity set, ranging from 3G to GPS. There’s little to complain about, save for the imaging skills perhaps.Here’s the rest of what the Galaxy Gio has to offer.Key features·    Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ·    7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ·    3.2" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution, multi-touch ·    800MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset; 278MB of RAM available to the user·    Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI ·    Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n with Mobile Hotspot functionality·    GPS with A-GPS connectivity; Digital compass ·    3.2 MP autofocus camera with geo-tagging and face-detection·    QVGA@15fps video·&[...]



Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.505-07:00

IntroductionThe Samsung Galaxy Ace can get far with a name like this but it isn’t going any further than its comfortable midrange spot. You know, if you want the best seat in the house you need to move the cat. The Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is a feline droid – the black cat in Samsung’s Android portfolio. And it spells bad luck for the competition – mid-range droids are a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone world.With the kind of specs, the Galaxy Ace could have passed for a high-end phone a while back. So, if your processing power and screen estate needs haven’t risen sharply during the past year or so, the Ace will serve you well.In fact, with Froyo on an 800MHz processor, good connectivity and screen size and resolution that were good enough for the first three iPhones, the Samsung Galaxy Ace is looking good.The only downside to the package is the QVGA video @ 15fps. That may be acceptable on a low-end dumbphone but certainly disappointing on a mid-range Android.Here’s what else is going on the Ace’s spec sheet.Key features·    Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ·    7.2 Mbps HSDPA support ·    3.5" 16M-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen of HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution ·    800MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset; 278MB of RAM available to the user·    Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz 3.0 UI customization·    Swype text input·    5 MP autofocus camera wit[...]

IntroductionThe Samsung Galaxy 551 is something that should have happened a long time ago. This is not to say that the form factor was out of favor with Samsung. But it took a slew of CDMA messengers to finally see a QWERTY side-slider to land in Europe.Android debuted on a full QWERTY phone, but messengers were never meant to be the dominant species. The Galaxy 551 is pragmatic enough to accept the fact and live with it. Samsung itself knows better than expect the market to embrace more QWERTY messengers the skill and size of the Motorola Milestone or the HTC Desire Z.The Galaxy 551 does not look forward to making a big splash, It’s part of a broader effort of giving the Galaxy lineup some depth in the midrange. With Froyo and all-round connectivity the Samsung Galaxy 551 makes perfect sense in the segment of affordable smart messengers. Key features·    Slide-out full QWERTY keyboard·    Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support·    3.2" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of WQVGA (240 x 400 pixel) resolution·    Great QWERTY keyboard·    Android OS v2.2 with TouchWiz launcher·    667MHz processor·    3.15 MP autofocus camera, QVGA video recording at 15fps·    Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n·    GPS with A-GPS connectivity·    160 MB internal storage, microSD slot·    Accelerometer and proximity sensor·  &nb[...]



Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.505-07:00

IntroductionNow that we have the B7610 OmniaPRO running on the much-awaited Windows Mobile 6.5, we're finally up to speed. Omnia smartphones have a pretty wide reach already and they are known for their WinMo customizations and feature-rich specs sheets. The B7610 OmniaPRO however was the first family member to sport a full hardware keyboard and by the looks of it, Samsung have done a great job. Side-sliding or not, the B7610 OmniaPRO is definitely a capable device in both hardware and software equipment. The QWERTY keyboard however is a convenience tool usually reserved for the competition's high-end offerings, so you can bet the OmniaPRO will have to tackle some really capable contenders. But you can easily tell, it a tough nut to crack as well. Key features:.    Quad-band GSM support and 3G with HSDPA ·    3.5" 16M-color (65K effective) AMOLED display of 800 x 480 pixel resolution ·    Work & Life mode switch key ·    Full side sliding QWERTY keyboard ·    800 MHz processor with dedicated graphics accelerator ·    5 megapixel auto-focus camera with dual-LED flash and D1 video recording at 30 fps·    Windows Mobile 6.5 fully skinned with TouchWiz UI ·    Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, standard microUSB port ·    Standard 3.5mm audio jack ·    2GB built-in storage, 256 MB RAM, microSD (up to 32GB), 8GB card included ·&n[...]



Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.505-07:00

IntroductionIt's business as usual on the WinMo front and all the action seems to be around the upper end of the pricing scale. Impressive as those top PocketPCs may be, they are hardly the stuff that makes the sales meters tick and bring the profits that fuel the R&D machine.Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE is one of the very few that dare to try and bring Windows Mobile to the masses. Budget PocketPCs are not unheard of but what makes OmniaLITE different is WinMo 6.5. The compact full-touch handset has the essentials perfectly covered, and sprinkled with a few nice extras too. But most importantly, the price tag won't make you wince.Key features·    3" 65K-color resistive touchscreen of WQVGA resolution ·    Quad-band GSM support ·    3G with 3.6 Mbps HSDPA ·    Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS with TouchWiz UI.    Samsung ARM 1176 667MHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM ·    3 megapixel autofocus camera with smile detection and VGA@15fps video ·    Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS ·    Wi-Fi with DLNA ·    FM radio with RDS ·    DivX and XviD video support right out of the box ·    Stereo Bluetooth 2.1, standard microUSB port ·    Office document viewer and editor ·    Excellent response and performance ·    Above average audio quality M[...]

Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.506-07:00

IntroductionThe S3650 Corby was just the beginning of a lineup that appears to have no visible end. There is a Corby for the touchscreen addicts, a Corby for the music buffs, Corby for the heavy texters, Corby for the young, and one for their parents. That’s pretty much everyone, don’t you think? We guess there should even be a Corby for the bored-with-the-Corby.The founding member of the Corby wasn’t announced so long ago, but so much has been changed. Well, if you put the S3650 Corby and the recently announced B5310 CorbyPRO side by side you'll notice one thing that hasn't changed at all: design. But on the inside they are very different, indeed.The Samsung CorbyPRO is meant for a different range of users altogether. It combines great texting and the intuitive touchscreen control tops that up with a nice connectivity package (such as HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.5mm audio jack) and all that is delivered at a bargain price. Key featuresQuad-band GSM/EDGE Dual-band UMTS support with HSDPA 2.8" resistive TFT touchscreen of QVGA resolution Four-row side-slide QWERTY keyboard 150 MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB) 3.15 megapixel fixed-focus camera with smile detection, QVGA video @ 15fps FM radio with RDS Find Music recognition service TouchWiz and Cartoon UI Social networking integration with direct file uploads GPS with[...]



Palm Pre disadvantages

2011-10-27T18:49:29.506-07:00

IntroductionIt's not like we didn't tell you. And hey, it's not like we're on time either. But we guess better late than sorry goes both ways. Once a popular (mostly stateside) PDA and smartphone maker, Palm were going full blast from safe to sorry. So, did they try to put the brakes? Negative. They hit the U turn. Many must've doubted Palm ever getting out of the twilight of their dwindling smartphone line. But we're not gonna give you all that crap about second chances. It won't be fair to the Palm Pre. It couldn't have been bleaker for the company but the Palm Pre is not the kind to walk around a with "Will work for food" sign on its neck. No sir. It's looking to elbow its way through a crowd of apples, androids and PocketPCs. Are we talking the mother of all comebacks here? We honestly don't know. But it looks like a debut of the same magnitude as the iPhone OS, Android and Maemo. The Palm Pre seems to have all the things that made the iPhone so special: multi-touch display, an Application Store, fluid and creative UI and a good web browser. But Palm didn't stop there - the webOS is all about multitasking - to an extent that gives quite a point to those who wouldn't call the iPhone a proper smartphone.The webOS and all the touchscreen gadgetry will sure keep us busy enough. It's the interface and the handling that will earn the Palm Pre its deserved share of ad[...]
