Samsung Galaxy mini : Review

Hands on with the Samsung Galaxy Mini
The world is always looking for ways to save money thanks to the blasted recession, and increasingly users are turning to cheaper handsets as a way to offset cost.
That's the theory behind the Samsung Galaxy Mini – a complete Android experience contained with a smaller footprint with some cost savings keeping the monthly fee down.
The little unit is certainly on the dinky side; you feel you could accidentally swallow it if you were inclined to put it in your mouth (or you got caught in a really dangerous bet).
Samsung galaxy mini review
The plastic-covered unit might look and feel a little budget, but that's mostly to do with the light feel of the Galaxy Mini – at only 105g it could hide in a pocket all day without being found.
The yellow plastic of the model we had on test was nicely metallic, although the overall feel of the chassis felt like it had more in common with the likes of the Samsung Genio range.
Samsung galaxy mini review
The front keys were sparse, with the main home button being the primary eye draw – this is well placed and easy to hit no matter what size of hands you're rocking.
The outer chassis shell feels a little fragile in our opinion, and the coverings for the micro-USB and microSD slots could be open to a bit of damage from time to time.
Samsung galaxy mini review

The 3.14-inch screen also suffers from the weight deficiency too, with taps and swipes, while being accurate and useful, sometimes feeling a little hollow.
However it should be firmly noted that all the above is in keeping with the budget model tag, and is perfectly acceptable for a phone that might cost as little as £15 per month.

Samsung Galaxy Ace : Review

The definitive Samsung Galaxy Ace GT- S5830 review
The latest edition to the Galaxy family is the Samsung Galaxy Ace GT- S5830, which packs quite a punch considering its middle-of-the-road specification and £199.99 prepay/£25 contract price point.
The Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system helps this smartphone stand tall next to other mid-range touchscreen devices, such as HTC's Wildfire, which comes with a noticeably slower processor and older version of Android, 2.1 (Eclair).
The Samsung Galaxy Ace is the little brother to the powerful Samsung Galaxy S in many ways.
Aesthetically, you'll be forced to play spot the difference if you put it up against the iPhone 4, and will come to the conclusion that the Samsung is generally smaller, lighter and nicer in the hand than the iPhone.
Samsung galaxy ace gt- s5830
However, in terms of sex appeal, the iPhone 4 wins hands down for its sleek look and feel, since the Samsung Galaxy Ace is a bit too plasticky. Interestingly, although the Galaxy Ace is smaller, the screen size is exactly the same as the iPhone 4, at 3.5 inches.
The screen quality is a low-end TFT, and is poor compared to the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung Galaxy S, which allows for crystal clear video playback.
Samsung galaxy ace gt- s5830
There's no HD video recording, but the five-megapixel camera works well as a happy snapper – it has several shot and scene modes, which can be fun to play around with.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Review

The Samsung Galaxy S2 brings the Power of Love
Samsung's history in the smartphone game has been pretty quiet – a few budget offerings, some false starts with Windows Mobile and the popular Galaxy S is pretty much it.
With the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Korean firm has taken another step forward by putting all the best technology it can into a ridiculously thin mobile.
The Galaxy S2's main talking point is the Super AMOLED+ screen, featuring a whole host of new tech to make it far superior to even its predecessor.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The raised contrast ratio, better colour gamut and apparent 80 per cent reduction in power over the first version of the screen, all in a 2.1mm footprint, offer the best images we've seen on a mobile.
The design is nice, too – the thickness has been kept to less than 9mm, which means the Galaxy S2 sits really nicely in the hand.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The design aesthetic is very similar to that of the first Galaxy, with the main physical Home button flanked by the two touch-sensitive options for Menu and Back – and both are easy to hit, and respond to a feather-light touch.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The 4.3-inch screen doesn't actually feel as big as you'd think it might given the dimensions, but thanks to the reduced thickness Samsung has beefed up the screen size without a massive penalty.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The Galaxy S2 has also been spruced up with TouchWiz 4.0, a new version of Samsung's overlay for its smartphones.
It doesn't seem to be that different from the outset, but the notifications bar has been overhauled slightly to offer more pertinent functions and widgets are easier to manage from the Home screen.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
Samsung also promised that you could use the gyroscope to enhance the live wallpapers, with them moving around as you held the phone, but we couldn't seem to make that work – we'll have a better play with the settings in our full Samsung Galaxy S2 review.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The rear of the phone shares a design ethic with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, with the mottled metallic shell underpinning the 8MP camera with single LED flash. We were hoping it would be a little bit better than that for a company with Samsung's imaging heritage, but it's fairly feasible that single LED unit could be brighter than the sun anyway.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The bottom of the phone is the place where a lot of the internals that make this a tech-heavy phone live – in order to keep it thinner, it seems Samsung has had to add a lip to the bottom to fit it all in.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
As you can see, the 3.5mm headphone jack can barely fit in the width of the device – the sub 9mm thickness is really exemplified here.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The Samsung Galaxy S2 has been confirmed as having the 'latest generation of Android on it', with the current iteration rocking Android 2.3.1. Whether or not this will be moving to Android 2.4 in the future, Samsung wouldn't confirm.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The range of applications on this TouchWiz 4.0-enabled device is quite standard from Samsung's point of view – some new toys such as Photo Editor make use of the dual core processing power, but it will be interesting to see what actually lands with the final version of the Galaxy S2.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The Social Hub is the same it's always been on the Samsung experience, but it's a little easier to open and send a message from the integrated inbox. It's no BlackBerry experience when it comes to seeing all your pertinent communication in one place, and we think the Hub should be in the messaging inbox, but this is a pretty well-designed system nonetheless.
The Music Player (which contained some great hits) feels very similar to previous iterations – we're fans of the Samsung Android music player, so this is no bad thing, but with the glut of improvements we were hoping for some visual tweaks and tricks to make use of the dual-core power.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
Pumping a spot of pop balladery out of the speaker wasn't the best way to assess audio quality, but it was loud and embarrassingly clear as music on a mobile goes.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
But screw the music – at least, that's how you'll feel when you see the Samsung Galaxy S2 video quality.
It's simply sensational. We have a lot of fun wowing (and then subsequently boring) people with the video quality of Super AMOLED, and we're thinking of having a specific party just to show off the prowess of the Galaxy S2 when it comes to movies.
Samsung galaxy s2 review

Samsung galaxy s2 review
The response time of the device is what got us the most excited, as the smoothness and flow of the screen was exquisite. If it sounds like we're going a little over the top, it's because that's the sensation we got when using it, and in today's crowded smartphone market it's nice to see something that's still wow-worthy.
We're hoping the range of video codecs on offer is the same as it was with the first Galaxy, because this would make it into the best mobile media player bar none.
The messaging on the Samsung Galaxy S2 was a little different than before, with a lot more made of the 4.3-inch expansive screen. Swype is once again pre-installed on the device, but both the normal Samsung keyboard and the swiping option are well rendered and work nicely.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The camera, which we've mentioned earlier is an 8MP effort with a single LED flash, seemed to perform well in our test shots – the press area was too bright for any proper snapping with the flash, but the rest seemed clear and very quick to snap.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
The larger camera shutter button – while in no way a substitute for a physical key, which most manufacturers seems to not want any more in the quest for the thinner phone – is easier to hit than on most handsets, meaning you can pretty much just guess at its location without needing to look.
The gaming side of the Samsung Galaxy S2 is something that excites us as well, and we were impressed with the combination of the GPU and Super AMOLED+ screen. Compared to the iPhone version, NOVA looked phenomenal on the display, and the gyroscope was so accurate it gives us great hope for the future of gaming on Android now.
Samsung galaxy s2 review
Overall we're impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S2 – it's going to be a dual-core smartphone force, and it's certainly going to give the LG Optimus 2X a run for its money with that screen.
We want to give this a thoroughly good test in the near future because it's very much a phone that needs to be pushed to the limits, so keep an eye out for our Samsung Galaxy S2 review as soon as we an steal/get sent a review unit.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi Only Up for Preorder on Amazon UK (To Ship March 31)

When Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 (3G) back in October 2010, the overpriced Froyo tab got some attention as the iPad was the only other known tablet in the market. Since then, Motorola Xoom and the iPad 2 have arrived with many more to follow. Now, Samsung hopes to revive sales with a Wi-Fi only version – Samsung Galaxy Tab P1010 – but it may be a little late to expect any ripples.
Amazon UK has the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1010 up for preorder for £299 ($477) with a release date of March 31. The price of the sans cellular radio version is £100 lesser than the unlocked SIM-free original. The release date of the Android 2.2 tab is rumored to be around April 4 in the US with a price tag of $399 but there’s no confirmation from Samsung yet. Nothing up on Amazon US pages either. However, the dates are close and an April 4 release is highly probable.

Gears of War 3: Trailer

iPad 2 vs. Android: And the winner is...

Well, folks, the wait is over: We finally have a fair fight. Since the launch of the Motorola Xoom and Google's Android Honeycomb OS, everyone's been champing at the bit to make iPad vs. Android tablet comparisons. Until now, though, the comparison had been putting a brand new device up against a year-old product -- Apple's original iPad -- and consequently didn't hold much weight.
With the revelation of Apple's new iPad 2 this week, that's all changed. So grab a front-row seat, battle fans, and let's get ready to rumble.
Apple's iPad 2 vs. Android Honeycomb Tablets: The Basics
Apple iPad 2
We'll start by looking at the most significant changes in Apple's new iPad 2, as outlined by Steve Jobs himself at Wednesday's magical special event. Cutting through the standard flowery-adjective-filled descriptions, the highlights are:
  • The new iPad 2 is thinner and lighter than its predecessor; it's 0.34 inches thick and 1.3 pounds, compared to the previous iPad's 0.53-inch and 1.5-pound profile.
  • The iPad 2 is faster than the first, boasting a dual-core 1GHz processor compared to the original's single-core 1GHz chip.
  • Apple's latest iPad includes two cameras: a front-facing camera for video chat and a rear-facing camera for photo and 720p video capturing. It can also output HD video via an optional HDMI connector.
  • The iPad 2 has a gyroscope.
In terms of software, the iPad 2 doesn't bring about any significant changes with its launch. An accompanying iOS update will add a new feature called iTunes Home Sharing that lets you access iTunes songs on your desktop computer, and the integrated Safari Web browser is said to have some performance improvements as well.
To boil it down to the basics, then, the new iPad is thinner, lighter, and faster than the old one, and it has cameras. That's pretty much it.
Pitted up against the Motorola Xoom -- the first and thus far only Android Honeycomb tablet on the market -- Apple's new iPad 2 comes out ahead in terms of thickness and weight: The Xoom is 0.16 of an inch thicker than the new iPad, and 0.25 of a pound heavier.
The iPad 2 is either equal to or somewhat behind the Xoom when it comes to raw processing power: Both the iPad 2 and the Xoom (as well as most of the other upcoming high-end Honeycomb tablets) have dual-core 1GHz processors. The Xoom has 1GB of RAM; rumors and recent reports suggest the iPad 2 has 512MB. Since Apple has not officially divulged that detail for the device, it's hard to say anything definitively.
Apple's iPad 2 vs. Android Honeycomb Tablets: The Smackdown
iPad vs. Xoom
Okay -- so Apple's new tablet wins in size and weight and more or less catches up in speed and cameras. The Xoom, however, has the higher resolution display (10.1 inches at 1280-by-800 vs. 9.7 inches at 1024-by-768); support for expanded storage via MicroSD cards; and support for USB connections. It will also be upgradeable to 4G in the near future, while the iPad 2 is 3G forever.
Android's strongest advantages, though, come via the innovations found in the Honeycomb operating system -- innovations that will be present in all Android 3.0 tablets, not just the Xoom. Among the most noteworthy:
  • Widgets. Instead of being limited to simple rows of static icons filling up your tablet's home screens, as you are on an iPad, Honeycomb's widgets allow you to do things like view and actively scroll through your inbox, thumb through your upcoming calendar appointments, and flip through the latest news stories -- all without ever opening anything. To borrow a word from Apple's dictionary, this revolutionizes the tablet experience.
  • Notifications. When you get an e-mail, an Android Honeycomb tablet briefly flashes the info at the bottom of your screen and then leaves an interactive icon for whenever you want to deal with it. You can customize notifications by service to control what you see and what you don't. It's intuitive and noninvasive, which certainly can't be said for the notification system on iOS and the iPad.
  • Voice commands and translations. Thanks to Google's voice-to-text technology, Honeycomb tablets have fully integrated support for voice-based input. Anywhere you can type text, you can speak it. You can also use Google's Voice Actions system -- accessible via an icon on the home screen -- to perform advanced functions like conducting searches and making notes.
  • Multitasking. While Apple has technically offered multitasking since iOS 4.0, it's multitasking with a major asterisk. Apple's form of multitasking is basically just task-switching and a limited amount of background processing. Android Honeycomb tablets, on the other hand, have full-fledged multitasking support. And using it is as easy as tapping an icon in the lower-left corner of the screen; that brings up a box with your most recently used programs, any of which can be opened from anywhere in the system.
  • Desktop-like browsing. Honeycomb's browser is as close to the desktop experience as you can get on a tablet. The browser allows you to have multiple tabs, to open pages in "incognito" mode, and to automatically stay synced with your computer's Chrome installation. That means your bookmarks are always available and always up-to-date, wherever you go -- no PC connections or service subscriptions required.
    And while the software is still a few weeks out, Honeycomb tablets will soon support browsing of Flash-based content. Mobile Flash loading is done on an on-demand basis, meaning you load material only when you want it (so no, you don't get bombarded with annoying ads). Love it or hate it, Flash is part of the Web -- and having a device that can't access it means you're left with blank holes while browsing.
  • Full access to your files. You can plug an Android Honeycomb tablet into your computer and browse it as if it were a hard drive. You can drag and drop files from your PC at will -- no limitations, no proprietary software required. You can browse the file system directly from the device, too, making it easy to manage files, share materials, and do what you need to do. The iPad, in contrast, offers an extremely limited method of app-specific file transferring that can be done only through iTunes; you can't directly access or manage the tablet's file system in any way.
    Think no iTunes is a negative? Think again. Instead of being forced to rely on a bloated program to manage your music, you can manage it any way you want with an Android tablet. Want to just drag and drop MP3 files without the hassle? No problem. Prefer a graphical interface? There's no shortage of options available. It's up to you; no company is forcing you to use some locked-down program just because they own it.
  • The freedom to use your device the way you want. Beyond the aforementioned items, Android Honeycomb tablets are free from the Apple-enforced restrictions on how you can customize your device and what you can do with it. While Apple lets you install only programs it has approved -- and we all know how silly and arbitrary the company's app evaluation process can be -- Android devices let you install anything you want. Aside from Apple-banned things like porn and political satire, this includes numerous applications that let you customize your tablet in ways Apple would never allow. You can pick a replacement browser with extra features, for example, or change the way icons are displayed on your home screens. It's your tablet, and it's your choice.
    As for those horrifying tales about the big, bad viruses just waiting to attack your vulnerable Android device? Let me ask you this: How many people do you know who have actually been infected? As I've said before, in any open environment, people are occasionally going to try some nasty stuff. That doesn't mean we lock down the Web and require every page and program to be preapproved. That means we take it upon ourselves to use some common sense and be careful about what we do online.
(For more on that topic, see "The truth about those 'data-mining' Android apps.")
Apple's iPad 2 vs. Android Honeycomb Tablets: Apps and Other Considerations
Android Honeycomb
All this application talk brings us to the current weak point of the Honeycomb tablet ecosystem: the number of tablet-optimized applications available for Android. That number, as Jobs pointed out during his presentation this week, is still small. It's no surprise: The tablet programming kit for Android app developers has been out for only roughly a week now. (You can run most regular Android apps on a Honeycomb tablet, by the way; what we're talking about here are programs created specifically to take advantage of the tablet's larger screen.)
So yes, the iPad does currently hold the advantage in selection of tablet-optimized apps -- but it won't be long before the field begins to level out. Remember, app numbers were a big argument by the Apple camp back when Android phones started gaining momentum in 2009. The growth in the Android Market since then has been staggering, and it continues to climb more with every passing month. Today, Android app development is flourishing. We've seen this story play out before.
There's also the issue of price: At $800 (unsubsidized), the Motorola Xoom is more expensive than Apple's lower-end iPad offerings. It's quite competitively priced, however, with the higher-end (and thus more comparable) iPad models. More important, while Motorola opted to offer only one model of the Xoom at launch, numerous Honeycomb tablet models will soon be available from multiple manufacturers. In addition to creating a far wider spectrum of prices, that'll present a far larger choice in size and form factor -- something Apple's single iPad can't offer.
Finally, let me say this: This comparison is looking at functionality and features; we're talking about what the products have to offer from a user perspective. No one's questioning the fact that Apple's iPad 2 will be a commercial success; hell, after having owned practically the entire tablet market for a full year, it'd be ridiculous if it weren't. Brand name recognition and interface familiarity go a long way, and Apple has mastered the art of making its products almost painfully simple to use. For some people, the iPad's utter simplicity and controlled uniformity are appealing qualities -- and that's fine.
Android Power TwitterFor users who want more robust features, choices, and customization potential, though, the Android Honeycomb tablets are light years ahead. And as Android's tablet-optimized app ecosystem continues to mature, that gap will only grow greater.

Iphone 5 :Chinese Clone

iPhone 5 Clone 20101217 220033 iPhone 5 Chinese Clone hits market!

iPhone 5 won’t be release by Apple, not at least by June.
But iPhone 5 Chinese Clone is already out in the market, and it looks really like iPhone.
The body of the Clone, looks like iPhone, it even have a microphone beside its headphone jack which is newly added in iPhone 4. The OS that it is running seems to be like Android as it has slight lag, and don’t really look like native iOS. But what is interesting is that the Apps it is running seems like iPhone Apps.

IPad 2 vs Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Galaxy Tab 8.9

The tablet wars have just heated up immensely and we might be on the verge of an explosion right now, as Samsung has just revealed its two new weapons – the refreshed Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9. We already told you what they are all about and now comes the time for the big question – how do they compare to the new tablet blockbuster – the iPad 2?
gsmarena 003 Apple iPad 2 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
A couple of weeks ago, Samsung’s CEO said that he feels the Galaxy Tab 10.1 felt “inadequate” to the newly released iPad 2 and that some changes needed to take place, one of which was the pricing. I can only say bravo to Samsung for making such radical of a changes in such a short period of time. They actually managed to make the new Tabs even thinner than the iPad 2, measuring at just 8.6mm thickness.
And here comes a head-to-head comparison of the two new Samsung slates and the Apple iPad 2 on some of their most important features.

Unlock IPhone 5 : Impossible?

A recent report shades some light on the future of the next-gen iPhone, maybe even the upcoming iPhone 5. Apple is now getting ready to include in future smartphones its own custom SIM that means Cupertino is thinking about avoiding any carrier hassles when it comes to iPhone sales, but it also can deal with future iPhone unlocking problems.
3g iphone sim card

Apple is said to work closely with Gemalto to make the special SIM card that would be pre-loaded on future handsets. That would make the future iPhone purchase a lot easier than before as iPhone customers will basically get a working handset right out of the box without having to worry about activating it immediately with a carrier. Apple would include an “app for that” and the iPhone owner would be able to select the carrier he or she wants to use from within the app.
That would render carriers almost useless when it comes to selling the device as customers would be able to go directly to Apple and order the device. But since the carrier is not as involved anymore, does that mean we won’t have subsidized iPhone offers in the future? Will Apple sell the device at full-price, which is an expensive alternative for most iPhone fans? The whole custom SIM card story is just a rumor for now and we’re waiting for either Apple or Gemalto to confirm any of this.
This unconfirmed plan seems to have been put in motion specifically for Europe, a region where there are lots of iPhone carriers already selling various iPhone models and where most exclusivity deals have already expired. Such an iPhone selling method would definitely be in Apple’s advantage, but I don’t think carriers will give up on making cash off Apple’s iPhone and some sort of subsidized deals will still be in order.
But since it’s likely carriers will find a way to offer iPhone deals and special 2-year contracts, does that mean the smartphone will not be as easily unlocked as it currently is? Sure changing carriers seems to be a lot easier to do through an Apple and Gemalto SIM management application, but if you happen to be locked in a contract with carrier X, then could you use the device on any other local network before your contract expires?
Would the custom SIM card use be mandatory? Would it be user-replaceable with usual micro SIM cards? Will we see this design and functionality changes adopted by the iPhone 5 or is this a plan for the distant future of the iPhone? It’s too early to answer all these questions but we’ll keep tabs on this particular Apple magical endeavor and come back with more news for you.
