Kindle for Android

The product: 
Kindle's in-book experience is as straightforward as it gets. To turn the page, simply swipe or tap somewhere in the margin. A tap to the center of the page brings up a status bar with location information and reader controls. There's also a menu at the top of your screen, in case you want to change text size, brightness, margins, line spacing, or background color. For now, the Kindle app offers only black, white, and sepia (my favorite) background options, but hopefully Amazon will add other textures and colors in the future.
The free Kindle app for Android is an excellent e-reader app that seamlessly ties to your Amazon account. It does a good job of presenting e-books, can easily reach into Amazon's enormous

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One

Samsung Galaxy S4

Perhaps the most striking thing about the GS4 is its massive 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display. It also features a sharp 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 441ppi (pixels per inch).

HTC gave the One a 4.7-inch LCD screen that's slightly smaller than the Galaxy S4's but boasts the same 1,920x1,080 resolution. As a result, the HTC One's display has a higher pixel density of 468ppi.

WeVideo for Android

The product: 
Perhaps the best thing about WeVideo for Android is the app's interface. It's as simple as it gets and should be easy to pick up even for those without any video editing experience at all. Conveniently, the app opens up to your Media Library, which shows off all of the videos, images, and audio files stored on your device, so there's no need to import anything into the app before editing. The bad thing here is that your Media Library will not show you any media that you have uploaded directly to your cloud account from a desktop, so in your mobile video projects, you'll

HTC First

The product: 
Look beyond Facebook Home, though, and you'll find an exceedingly basic stock Android handset with
none of HTC's characteristic attention to detail or well-crafted flair. Facebook and HTC -- and AT&T, for that matter -- have travel this road before, also with questionable results. While the First is by no means as quirky or as limited as the HTC Status -- in fact, it offers quite competent midtier features like an HD screen, dual-core processor, and passable 5-megapixel camera. Yet, the physical design also stops short of delivering a compelling experience as unique as Facebook's mobile aspirations.

At least the First is pretty comfortable to hold,

The Alcatel One Touch

For the roughly $130 US full retail price, the specs are fine: a large, 5-inch, 800x480-pixel screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera.

But the handset design is another matter. The Scribe Easy's wide profile fit awkwardly in my hands, and its grooved sides scooped in, so that it was painfully aware of the rim around the screen

The Tupsu for Android

The product: 
Tupsu has a unique look and feel. Its levels are mostly on the darker side, and its eerie music creates a Tim-Burton-in-outer-space sort of vibe. The animation is clean, the detailing on the background and objects is sharp, and the physics just feel right. Altogether, these elements create a visually attractive playing environment

The Samsung GALAXY Express

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, has launched the Samsung GALAXY Express, a feature-rich multimedia powerhouse that makes 4G LTE’s dazzlingly fast network accessible to everyone.
The GALAXY Express delivers outstanding performance on a large (4.5”), vivid and crystal clear Super AMOLED Plus screen that allows users to view videos, photos and webpages with a better clarity. Fitted with the Android Jelly Bean OS, the device is extra-responsive as well we transitions are fast and silky smooth. Its attractive, comfortably contoured, slim design with solid grip mean it's a pleasure to take the GALAXY Express with you anywhere you go.

The ZTE Avid 4G

What you should know: 
With its uninspiring, black-slab aesthetic, you won't turn any heads with the ZTE Avid 4G. Its sharply rounded top corners and curved, tapered bottom edge make it look like it's half the ZTE Score M and half the Anthem 4G. It measures 4.88 inches tall and 2.58 inches wide, and it has a trim, 0.47-inch profile. At 5.25 ounces, it is a bit on the heavy side, but it fits comfortably in front jean pockets, and you can maneuver it easily with just one hand.
On the left are a micro-USB port and a silver, easy-to-press volume rocker. Up top are a power/sleep button and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The back houses a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash. To the right of it are two small slits for the output speaker. In the lower right-hand corner is an indent you can use to pry off the backplate. Inside, you'll get ahold of the 1,730mAh battery and expandable microSD card slot. The plate is made out of a lightweight plastic coated in a matte finish that limits the visibility of fingerprint smudges.

What it offers: 
Though the Avid features Ice Cream Sandwich and operates on MetroPCS 4G network, the carrier has other LTE devices that are faster, smoother, and sometimes, even cheaper.

The advantage: 
The ZTE Avid 4G has LTE connectivity, runs on Android 4.0, and requires no contract.

The unfavorable: 
The Avid 4G's display can be unresponsive and it has a noticeably blue tint; call quality is mediocre; and the phone's processor is slow.

Five Upcoming Android Phones

As expected, that there were always upcoming changes. Now, let us see if who are the participants..

Samsung Galaxy S4
The Galaxy S III has been a huge hit. Samsung stopped making carrier-specific versions of its flagship phone in 2012, so you can expect the same with the Galaxy S4.
Rumored specs are all over the map, but a 1080p AMOLED screen is probably a lock for this generation. Other OEMs are moving in that direction, and Samsung has always prided itself on display technology. If it chooses to again use PenTile sub-pixels in its 1080p panel, the blemishes some more observant users complain about might no longer be evident.
A faster Exynos ARM chip is likely in the cards as well. The Exynos 5250 (or Exynos 5 Dual) is a dual-core chip that powers the Nexus 10, and it could make an appearance in the Galaxy S4 too. It is the first ARM Cortex-A15 based processor, and it packs some serious power. Perhaps a quad-core variant will be announced for this phone, but two 1.7GHz A15 cores should be sufficient.

Motorola X phone
When the Google-Motorola acquisition was done, there were still pre-Google devices in the Motorola pipeline. We were warned at the time that the true Google collaboration did not include the newRAZR phones, but big things were coming. A recent report from the Wall Street Journal claims to have the inside line on what the next big thing is. It’s allegedly called the Motorola X Phone.
The official Android device, the Nexus 4, lacks 4G LTE, which puts it at a disadvantage when it comes to visibility. Whereas the Nexus devices are about making a statement, the X Phone could be about making the most appealing product. One with LTE, tons of storage, and carrier subsidies. Other features mentioned for the X Phone include a flexible display and ceramic casing.

The M7 is rumored to be an updated Droid DNA in a One X form factor. There will reportedly be a 4.7-inch 1080p screen, 32GB of internal storage, and a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 ARM chip. A unibody aluminum casing had been put forward in some leaks, but other sources claim it is closer in construction to the DNA. On-screen buttons may also be on the table.
As for the software, the M7 will launch running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a 4.2 update in the works. It will also run a new, cleaner version of HTC Sense that loses many of the confusing elements present in current devices.
Sony Xperia Z “Yuga”
The Yuga looks to be Sony’s take on the ongoing giant phone trend. Just like the HTC Droid DNA, the Yuga is expected to sport a 5-inch 1080p screen. In some leaked renders, the Yuga (and similar Odin) looks very slim with almost no bezel alongside the screen.

Other rumored specs include a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064, 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera. The Yuga is also said to have a water and dust-resistant chassis.
The next Nexus
Google always ties a new version of Android to the Nexus. If you wait on next year’s Nexus, you’ll get the latest and greatest software with no carrier or OEM interference. This is the same experience you get with the current Nexus 4, but the hardware will be a year newer.

The HTC Droid DNA

What you should know: 
Measuring 5.6 inches tall by 2.7 inches wide, the device is large, yet thin. At 0.38 inch thick, and a mere 0.16 inch thick at its thinnest point, its profile makes its edges thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S3. Picking up both handsets and placing them side by side, however, they seem to be of equal thickness, or shall I say thinness. This phone is razor-sharp, there's no doubt about that, and its metal buttons and trim give it a much more premium feel than the Galaxy S3's plastic parts.
The screen is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera capable of shooting video in 1080p HD.
The HTC Droid DNA connects to popular Google services, too, such as Gmail, Google Plus, Maps, and Navigation. HTC has placed some of its own software on the DNA. A Music app combines the Amazon MP3 player and music storefront, Slacker Internet radio app, and phone-based tracks in one location.

What it offers: 
Quad-core power, 4G LTE, a lovely 5-inch screen, and a stunning design, the $199.99 HTC Droid DNA is currently Verizon's best Android deal.

The advantage: 
Beautifully designed HTC Droid DNA features a quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 4G LTE, a sharp 5-inch screen, an excellent camera, and long battery life.

The unfavorable: 
The Droid DNA's large size makes it tricky to fit in tight pockets, and it lacks both an SD card slot and a removable battery.

The Samsung Rugby Pro

What you should know.. 
Rugby Pro works underwater as it was advertised, and with its thick seams and ridged sides, it certainly looks like it can take a pounding. At least at first. There's a hard, ridged material that rings the phone. 

What it offers.. 
The Super AMOLED material and 800x480-pixel (WVGA) resolution keep text and lines looking sharp, colorful, and smooth. Blacks look deep and rich, and in typical Samsung fashion, the default settings overload certain colors, like green. This help gives images depth and richness, but it can look a little overdone on your own photos, when the overabundance of color becomes obvious.

The benefits. 
A whole lot of pre-loaded apps come on the Rugby Pro, as they do on every smartphone with a major carrier. In addition, Qik Lite is installed for you to start in on voice chats. Standard apps include the calendar, clock, calculator, and music player. The Google Play store is your go-to for downloading free and premium apps and other content like TV shows, movies, and music.

The advantage:
Samsung's Rugby Pro possesses stellar call quality, has push-to-talk support, NFC, a speedy processor, and a decent 5-megapixel camera.The unfavorable: 
Does not look or feel all that durable, and the back panel popped open when the handset is thrown.The offer:
Samsung's Rugby Pro is a good and affordable choice for people who liked rugged smartphone.
The price:
It is only $99.99


The LG Nexus 4

This phone will absolutely give you another experience that the previous won't.
The expansive 4.7-inch display has a 1,280x760-pixel resolution and it's all driven by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor. LTE is a big miss, and the 8-megapixel camera is not as robust as I'd like, but the handset's sizable 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage show that LG has finally found its flagship phone
While the Galaxy Nexus showed plenty of curves, the Nexus 4 is all angles and straight lines. Based on the design of the LG Optimus G, it is the very definition of a slab phone.
Like the original Nexus One, the LG Nexus 4 delivers the latest version of Google's Android software -- in this case, 4.2 Jelly Bean -- without any manufacturer or carrier skins. Some notable improvements to the operating system include what Google calls the Photo Sphere plus Gesture Typing. Photo Sphere is a feature that lets you stitch multiple images from various directions into a 360-degree super panorama. Gesture Typing, as its name implies, is a text input method that allows users to string letters together by dragging fingers through them on the keyboard similar to Swype.

LG Nexus 4


The LG Optimus L9

Here are some of the things that you should know about LG Optimus L9 if you wish to have it.
The LG Optimus L9 runs Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. With ICS, the handset gets the usual slew of Google's services, like Chrome, Gmail, Plus, Latitude, Maps with Navigation, Messenger, Search, Talk, and YouTube. The Google Play stores for Books, Magazines, Movies & TV, and Music are included as well.

The advantage: The LG Optimus L9 from T-Mobile has a snappy dual-core CPU, 4G, Android 4.0, and a 1080p HD camera.
The unfavorable: The Optimus L9's battery drains quickly, it has a poor audio speaker, and it comes preloaded with too much bloatware.

The offer: The reasonable $80 price tag, dual-core processor, and Android 4.0, make the LG Optimus L9 a reliable midlevel handset for T-Mobile users.

The Samsung Mini Galaxy S3

If you wish for a small size Samsung Galaxy S3, here it is, smaller but same in features.
Samsung Electronics Co. has unveiled a smaller and cheaper version of the Galaxy S III smartphone with the same screen size as the iPhone 5.
Samsung says the Galaxy S III mini features a screen measuring 4 inches diagonally, smaller than the Galaxy S III's 4.8 inch display but the same as Apple's iPhone 5, which was Apple's first upgrade of the iPhone screen size.
Samsung said the mini will be launched in Europe later this month but kept mum on schedules for other countries.
Samsung's German mobile shop lists the mini's price at 399 euros ($516) versus 550 euros ($711) for the cheapest S III.

The LG Optimus G

Another impressing idea from LG, which is pack with different features is their Optimus G.
The LG Optimus G, which comes in black and white, has a familiar square slate design. The corners round ever so slightly, but the edges of the phone face drop in steep cliffs that create a noticeable edge.
Standing 5.01 inches tall by 2.8 inches wide by 0.37 inch thick, the Optimus G comes in slightly wider and thinner than LG's international quad-core phone, the Optimus 4X HD (which measures 5.19 inches by 2.69 inches by 0.38 inch). Its 5.44-ounce heft makes it solid, but also on the heavy side.
LG calls its 4.7-inch Optimus G's peeper a True HD IPS+ display; that translates to a 1,280x768-pixel resolution (WXGA). The Optimus G's 15:9 aspect ratio is a little off the 16:9 standard, but that hasn't bothered us so far. Pixel density comes in at 320ppi. For reference, the Nokia Lumia 920 has 332ppi, the iPhone 5 has 326ppi, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 306 pixel-per-inch density.

The Samsung Galaxy Reverb

Samsung’s $249.99 Galaxy Reverb is hard proof that smartphone options on prepaid carriers are getting better every day. The compact handset features a good-size 4-inch screen, a nimble camera that snaps pleasing pictures.
Measuring 4.8 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide by 0.45 inch thick, the Galaxy Reverb is small in stature and cut from the same mold as Samsung’s myriad other phones. It’s crafted from lightweight plastic that helps the Reverb tip the scales at a mere 4.5 ounces but lacks the premium polish of metal.
The Samsung Galaxy Reverb’s 4-inch LCD screen (800x480 pixels) won’t bowl you over especially compared with the massive and much sharper HD (1,280x720 pixels) 4.7-inch (and larger) displays you find gracing cutting-edge Androids.

Android Phones are Risk To Wipeout Attack

Cellphones using Google's Android operating system are at risk of being disabled or wiped clean of their data, including contacts, music and photos, because of a security flaw that was discovered several months ago but went unnoticed until now.
Opening a link to a website or a mobile application embedded with malicious code can trigger an attack capable of destroying the memory card in Android-equipped handsets made by Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Sony Ericsson, rendering the devices useless, computer security researcher Ravi Borgaonkar wrote in a blog post Friday. Another code that can erase a user's data by performing a factory reset of the device appears to target only the newly released and top selling Galaxy S III and other Samsung phones, he wrote.
