The LG Nexus 4

This is the image of the new LG Nexus 4.

According to the EXIF data on the image, the picture was taken with an LG Optimus G last week. This may mean the image is coming from someone within LG, or it may not mean anything. It certainly looks like a white Nexus 4, and you can even see the reflective pattern on the bottom right that was a distinctive feature of the black Nexus 4.

The HTC One VX

What you should know: 
The HTC One VX certainly speaks the same design language as the company's other current handsets. In style you can think of it as a cross between the HTC One X+ and older HTC One S. The phone is sculpted from similar rounded curves, with a familiar flat, oval shape and minimalist aesthetic.
Unlike the One S, however, the One VX is crafted from lightweight plastic and not carved from a single block of aluminum. The One VX isn't molded from premium polycarbonate like the One X and One X+ are, either. That gives the phone a less expensive look and feel, though faux silver accents around the screen bezel and a clean white cover on the back lend the device some sophistication.
Measuring 5.3 inches tall by 2.7 inches wide and just 0.36 inch thick, the One VX is small enough to fit in the hand or slide into tight pockets. At 4.4 ounces, the phone won't weigh you down either, but has enough heft to feel substantial.

What it offers: 
It may not be a fire-breathing superphone, but the HTC One VX offers plenty of Android goodness for under $50.
The advantage: 
The affordable HTC One VX for AT&T serves up a modern Android OS, a dual-core processor, and a feature-rich camera. The phone also delivers rock-solid call quality and long battery life.
The unfavorable: 
The HTC One VX lacks quad-core processing and a removable battery.
The price:
$29.99 to $49.99

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.

Apple is getting ready for 'iPhone 6,' 'iOS 7'

Apple's iPhone is not the world's best-selling smartphone. It has been dethroned by Samsung's Galaxy S3. According to a recent study, Apple sold 16.2 million smartphones in the third quarter of 2012, while Samsung sold 18 million S3 handsets. Fox News states this is the first time in years the iPhone wasn't ranked first in global sales.
Samsung is still the top mobile OEM in the US, although Apple is very slowly trying to catch up. Rounding out the top five are LG, Motorola, and HTC, all of which continue to lose market share.
The story is similar in the platform space: Google is first courtesy of Android, Apple is second with iOS, but the roles are slightly reversed as Android has grown more than iOS recently. Again, rounding out the top five are RIM, Microsoft, and Symbian, which all continue to lose share.Apple's iPhone 5 bears the identifiers "iPhone 5.1" and "iPhone 5.2" and is powered by iOS 6 operating system.
Developer logs show that the app requests originate from an internet address on Apple's Cupertino campus, suggesting that Apple engineers are testing compatibility for some of the popular apps, the website said.
"Although OS and device data can be faked, the unique IP footprint leading back to Apple's Cupertino campus leads us to believe this is not one of those attempts," the website said.
Apple launched iPhone 5 in September and it has been reported that the new iPhone will be released in the middle of 2013.

It will be Aluminum Nokia Lumia

The next Lumia we could see land on shelves will be made not of the typical polycarbonate that's composed every Lumia since its inception, but of aluminum. The report comes from The Verge, citing "sources familiar with Nokia's plans."
Nokia is no stranger to aluminum design. Its gorgeous N8 from 2010 featured a stylish, contoured metal casing in a variety of colors, and the then-flagship Symbian phone also packed a 12-megapixel camera. Revisiting the N8's well-received design language would be a smart move for Nokia
Nokia has other Lumia smartphones planned to take on the Android and iPhone big guns, and phone design does have some sway. The Lumia 920 is a large, thick, and heavy device. Nokia's attention to design has long been a strong point, and an aluminum chassis would be a welcome departure from polycarbonate -- provided its finish doesn't scratch or chip.

The Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL

What you should know: 
The Quad XL's design elements, like its red accents and soft-touch back plate, its aesthetic is nothing new.
On the left is a Micro-USB port, up top are a 3.5mm headphone jack and power/sleep button, and on the right is a volume rocker. It measures 5.11 inches tall and 2.56 inches wide. Unfortunately, at 0.45 inch thick and 5.11 ounces heavy, the device is hefty. It feels dense and sturdy in the hand, and you definitely feel the weight if you pin it between your face and shoulder during a conversation. It won't fit entirely into small front jeans pockets, and when it's in, expect a bulky fit.
The back plate is textured with a small diamond pattern and its matte coating fends off oily fingerprints. In the middle is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash; on the bottom left is a small slit for the audio speaker. Using a small indent on the bottom left corner, you can pry the plate off to expose the 2,600mAh battery, microSD card slot, and SIM card slot.
On the front is a 4.5-inch HD IPS plus display, with a 1,280x720-pixel resolution and 330 ppi. Icons and text look crisp, and the touch screen is responsive.

What it offers: 
While its processor may sound impressive, the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL is a mediocre phone in a sea of excellent quad-core alternatives.

The advantage: 
The Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL's camera is packed with editing features, and its user interface has several customization options.

The unfavorable: 
The Ascend D1 Quad XL's screen is dim, its photo quality is poor, and it has a hefty build.


The Nokia Lumia 920

Get to know Nokia Lumia 920 before acquiring or having other options..

The Nokia Lumia 920 is the first phone from the Finnish firm to run on the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system,Windows Phone 8, with its charming, colourful live tiles and a host of nifty new features.
Nokia has added to this with its own apps for in-car satellite navigation, music streaming, local information and photography. With a great screen and attractive design, is this the best Windows Phone 8 device around?
It's available this month on EE for 4G connectivity or Orange and T-Mobile for 3G. It's available SIM-free for around £445, so expect it to be free on contracts above £35 per month. 

The Lumia 920 has been kitted out with the ability to charge inductively. This means it's able to receive power by touching a charging pad, rather than being directly connected to a plug. We've already seen this idea before with PowerMat, but the technology is built right into the phone, rather than needing to add an extra case onto it.
Nokia Lumia 920 colours
The Lumia 920 is running on a 1.5GHz dual core processor, backed up by 1GB of RAM. By top-end smart phone standards, that's not a lot. By comparison, the newly announced Google Nexus 4 boasts a 1.5GHz quad-core chip and a mighty 2GB of RAM. Given that Windows Phone 8 software finally allows for multi-core processing (up to a ridiculous 64 cores), it's a shame not to see the first quad-core Windows Phone 8 handset.

The Lumia 920 is the first of Nokia's phones to sport the latest Windows Phone 8 software, rather than the older Windows Phone 7 you'll find on the Lumia 800. Instead of the multiple homescreens of Android or grids of apps of iOS, Windows Phone brings large, colourful tiles to a scrolling homescreen, each showing live information.

On the back of the 920 you'll spy an 8-megapixel camera. It apparently uses the PureView technology seen in the ridiculous Nokia 808, but it doesn't offer the same whopping megapixel count.
Nokia Lumia 920 back
The 920 is the first phone from Nokia to ride on Britain's new super-fast 4G network. Only EE currently offers the service and it's not cheap -- and only in 11 cities at launch -- but if data speed is everything to you, it's worth checking out.

The Windows Phone 8 experience on the 920 is the same as it is on the HTC 8X. It's fun and easy to use, but the terrible lack of apps in the store make it hard to recommend over similarly priced high-end Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3.

  • Stunning screen
  • Attractive design
  • Enjoyable Windows Phone 8 software
  • Great Nokia apps
  • Inductive charging pad

  • Desperate lack of apps in the Windows Phone 8 store
  • Unimpressive battery life
  • Heavy

The Launching of Nokia 109

Internet for mobile phone made cheaper and easy through Nokia 109.

Today is announced the Nokia 109, the latest step forward in our strategy to connect the next billion and beyond to the Internet.
It’s designed for people who want an easy-to-use and affordable Internet-capable phone with the familiarity of a traditional keyboard.
Happily, armed with the Nokia Xpress Browser, they’ll find it easy-going. This cloud-accelerated browser reduces the data consumption of web pages by up to 90 per cent to deliver an easy and inexpensive web experience.
Made socialFacebook and Twitter access right from the home screen will serve social networking needs, while the eBuddy instant messaging client is available for download from Nokia Store to make it easy to keep up-to-date with your closest contacts. Plenty more apps and hundreds of free games, including ten premium titles from EA, are available in the Nokia Store.
The phone includes a media player, as well as an FM radio, with radio recording in some markets. The built-in speaker packs a punch for whole room entertainment, reaching a volume of up to 103phons (phon is the unit of apparent loudness). Owners can expand the external memory using an SD card for up to 32GB of storage.
The battery life on this phone is extremely enviable, with up to 33 days standby time specified, or 7.5 hours talk-time.
System SpecsSystem: GSM 900/1800 GSM 850/1900
User Interface: Series 40
Dimensions: 110 x 46 x 14.8mm
Weight: 77g (including battery)
Display: 1.8-inch TFT; 128 x 160 pixels
Memory card: up to 32GB microSD
Connectivity: GPRS/EDGE, 2.0mm Charger Connector, 3.5mm AV connector
The Nokia 109 will be available in black and cyan from this quarter in China, the Asia Pacific region and Europe. Before any local taxes or operator subsidies, it will cost around $42 (USD) or Php1,730.00

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 Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Find out the difference between S3 and Note 2, then speak out the experience.
If you've seen the Samsung Galaxy S3, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 holds few surprises. Start with the Galaxy S3's round corners, high-gloss surfaces, scant bezels, and bubbled-out screen, then blow it up a size and add a stylus slot. Samsung unabashedly carries on its plastic tradition in the face of rivals that have much more premium-looking, and possibly heartier, build materials. Though attractive, the Note 2 wins no awards for construction, and the highly reflective surfaces sometimes bounce back light in distracting ways.
This is a large phone: 5.9 inches tall by 3.2 inches wide by 0.37 inch thick and weighing 6.4 ounces. That's a handful to be sure, but the weight feels proportional to the phone's dimensions, and any lighter could mean a smaller battery, which is one trade-off I don't want. Like the Galaxy S3, the Note 2 manages to look relatively sleek and slim despite its girth. Side by side, the Note 2 isn't a whole lot larger than the original Samsung Galaxy Note, and is much more palmable than a 7-inch tablet.

The advantage The Samsung Galaxy Note 2's massive screen is terrific for videos, games, and reading; and its improved stylus aids productivity. A blazing quad-core processor, a great camera, and strong battery life round out the advantages of this Android 4.1 phone.
The unfavorable:Its extra-large size makes the Galaxy Note 2 unwieldy to carry around, there's no dedicated HDMI-out port, and hiccups in the S Pen stylus and apps can slow you down. The Note 2 isn't a suitable tablet replacement across all categories.
The offer: Think of Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 as a big phone rather than as a tablet wannabe, and you'll come closer to appreciating its top-flight smartphone specs. However, continued problems with the S Pen and the handset's oversize dimensions won't make it a universal choice for all Android-seekers, blazing quad-core processor or no.

Comparing MyPhone A878 Duo and Lenovo P700i

If you are looking for lower price but quality phone, you can check out different brands that are available in the market today. But if you are choosing between MyPhone A878 Duo and Lenovo P700i, here are some details that you should know when the two phone was compared.
The MyPhone A878 Duo and the Lenovo P700i, both are among the budget-friendly dual-SIM Android smartphones in the market today that features a 1GHz dual-core processor. The Lenovo P700i is the updated version of highly popular Lenovo P700 that brings the power of the P700's 2500mAh battery with the speed of a dual-core processor. While the MyPhone A878 Duowhich was officially unveiled at MyPhone's "Fans Day Madness" event last month, is now one of the most talked smartphone online because of its specs (Its MyPhone's most powerful Android smartphone to date) and its missing 3G capability.

Comparing iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920

If you want to know if which is better between iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920.
Here it is,


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.

The Windows Phone 8

Microsoft will be launching Windows Phone 8 on October 29, 2012, that is Monday. So stay in tune for more details for those who are interested about this.

The Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G

The advantage: 
The Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G has a pleasing 4-inch screen, a comfortable slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and access to 4G LTE speeds.
The unfavorable: 
The Metrix 4G runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a slow processor, and trips up during calls. The camera likes turning whites blue.
The offer: A slower processor, older Android OS, and uneven camera keep the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G and its very good slide-out keyboard from reaching their highest potential.

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.

The SAMSUNG Galaxy Note® II

It is optimized for the fastest 4G LTE* and HSPA+ 42 networks, the Galaxy Note II combines some of the best capabilities of the Galaxy S® III with an enhanced S Pen and new S Pen apps, the processing power to multitask like a PC, with a larger screen yet in a thinner, lighter form factor. The Galaxy Note II enables consumers that want a larger format device to create, collaborate and now share original content faster and easier than before.

“The original Galaxy Note® created a new category of smartphones by combining the best of a smartphone with the best of a tablet. In less than a year, Samsung sold more than 10 million globally demonstrating the category is taking hold,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. “The new Galaxy Note II is a significant leap forward for the category.” 

Sony Xperia™ tipo Smartphone

It is made to make life easy

The entertainment. Xperia tipo is so easy to use. The latest apps and music are just a click away from your home screen. Running on the latest Android platform, the Xperia tipo makes web browsing quicker and easier too.

It is made to control your costs

The Xperia tipo Android smartphone lets you enjoy shock horror on-screen – not on your phone bill. With the data usage app, you can set the limits you want to use data to surf, chat or game online. It lets you manage your costs, so you never spend more than you want to.
