Introducing The Samsung Galaxy S4 – Your New Life Companion

Introducing The Samsung Galaxy S4 – Your New Life Companion

  After days of speculation and built up enthusiasm, Samsung finally managed to end our wait with the launch of its next flagship device of 2013, The Galaxy S4. The event which took place at Radio City Music Hall in Times Square, New York managed to attract a large number of anxious tech gurus along with a lot of gadgets personnel from all over the world. The event with respect to the place lived up to its theatrical expectations by the stage artists and performers who graced the event with their unique acts explaining each of the many new features of the Galaxy S4.   The mega event kicked off with Samsung’s President and Head of IT and Mobile Communications, Mr. JK Shin giving us a brief introduction of what the new device has to offer and exactly how each feature differs from those that are currently existent in other smartphones not only in Samsung devices but other smartphone’s as well. For the first time in the history of their launch events, the Korean tech giants managed to introduce us to the new and distinctive features of the device before actually unveiling it. Now its time for us to show you all the bells and whistles, the Galaxy S4 has to offer. Body and Design The Galaxy S4 which we like to call a hybrid version of its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 also borrows a few of its design traits from the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Grand. As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S4 even though looks quite similar to the S3 does manage to create its own lasting impression with its sleek and smart 5 inch body which is wrapped up in a fine plastic enclosure which gives a nice smooth finishing touch to the device. Just like the Galaxy S3, the plastic feeling of the Galaxy S4 won’t appeal to all. It feels very lightweight (weighing in at just 130 grams) in the hand, and while people have been conditioned against this feeling cheap, compare it to the HTC One and you’ll see that it’s a long way from premium feeling. However, it’s exactly the same sensation as we found on the Galaxy S3, and given the record numbers of sales that it had, Samsung is sticking with a winning formula, and on top of that, there’s a market that does seem to exist  for a phone that you’ll barely notice in your pocket most of the time. Right ? Besides the body and design, Samsung have unveiled two color variants for the Galaxy S4 which would be available in ‘White Frost’ and ‘Black Mist’; with both the colors giving a nice elegant touch to the new device....

Galaxy S2 getting taste of Jelly Bean 4.1.2 in January 2013

Galaxy S2 getting taste of Jelly Bean 4.1.2 in January 2013

The users of Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 have been waiting anxiously for their devices to taste the yummy goodness that is Jelly Bean. Thanks to our friends at XDA Developers, the official leak of the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware has been out since a while now and according to the reviews its quite stable but still not complete. Samsung had initially stated that the Galaxy S2 would receive the firmware update before the end of this year (2012), but seems that is out of the question now as Canadian carrier “Rogers” confirmed that their Samsung Galaxy S2 would be receiving the 4.1.2 JB update end of January. Not only the S2, but the picture from Rogers shows the Galaxy Note (N7000) will be receiving the JB update at the same time as the S2, so generally the carrier versions get the update before international versions, so we can expect the international Galaxy S2 (I9100) to get the update early January 2013. Galaxy S2 users usually get major updates to their phones, like from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, directly and now as promised hoping to get Jelly Bean 4.1.2, the owners have to just be patient a little while more and they could get a late Christmas present from the Samsung.  ...

Nexus 7 – The Kindle Fire Killer

Nexus 7 – The Kindle Fire Killer

Google I/O has showed us a number of surprises this year, one of which was the launch of the first ever Nexus Tablet. The tablet by Asus called Nexus 7, has an IPS (In-plane switching) screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The tablet as the name suggests is a 7 inch power house, running on a Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad core processor. The 8GB version of the tablet is for $199 and the 16GB costs $249. First Look This is the first ever tablet to come with Android’s latest OS “Jelly Bean”. The Android 4.1 boasts of improving the precision when typing on the soft keyboard. According to a number of reviews so far, the improvement has been clearly seen. Now lets go to the look of the device, the tablet measures 10.45mm thick, weighing around 0.7 pounds. The back embossed with both “Nexus” and “Asus” is made in such a way to give a firm grip on the device but feels very comfortable. The tablets main competitor is Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but is panning out to have surpassed it. The home screen is only locked on portrait mode, with a toolbar at the bottom consisting of Google’s very own Apps like the play Store, Google Music, Books etc. The 4.1 upgrade also updates the Play Store, so now you can purchase TV series and movie’s from the store,this update does make a lot of  sense considering Google are targeting the Kindle Fire.The device not only comes with Tegra 3 Quad-core processor, but also a 12 core GPU, so that makes 4 + 12 = 16 cores!! Wow that is impressive, for a little guy it sure packs a hell of a punch. Drawbacks The tablet only comes with a front facing camera for video conferencing, so that means no back camera which is a let off, but for the price it does makes sense not to give one.  Another draw back is that it has no slot for memory expansion, so you will have to do with 8 GB or 16 GB storage only. So this is supposed to be the “Kindle Fire Killer”, with its impressive specs and Android 4.1 OS  it is sure to do just that. Quick Specs: OS Android   4.1 Jelly Bean RAM 1 GB Processor Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad Core, 12 Core GPU Dimensions 10.45 mm Display type 7 inch IPS screen, 1280×800 pixels Weight 0.7 lbs Camera Front Facing 2 mega pixel Here is the official launching of the Nexus 7 Tablet. Enjoy!...

HTC Sensation gets an official taste of ICS in Pakistan

HTC Sensation gets an official taste of ICS in Pakistan

The long wait for the ICS update for HTC Sensation users in Pakistan is FINALLY over as the official update is now available. It can be directly downloaded from within the phones software update feature or through HTC’s PC suite better known as “HTC Sync”. The update not only brings a new dimension to the phone but also enhances the overall android experience. In this article we are going to give a hands on review of ICS on the HTC Sensation and what it has to offer.  The update comes packed with HTC Sense 3.6 giving it a whole new look from the previous 3.0 version. Major changes on the home screen include an options menu which was previously not available. With the new version of Sense, the menu has not really transformed much except for a few visual changes mainly the icons. Google had launched ICS a while back but got a few bugs along the way, and as a result the official launch got delayed. After successfully testing out the stability of version 4.0.3, the company gradually started rolling out the update for all major ICS supported devices. The drop down notification bar has also got a new face lift from the dull looking white/grey background to a new, sleek looking black one with new icons and multiple features. The settings menu have got a few useful tweaks. ICS brings multi-tasking to a whole new level with the task manager getting a major reboot through which programs can now be simultaneously and effectively managed. The default camera app gets a wicked upgrade with ICS, the major changes include the following:  The interface, where all options have been regrouped under “settings” and the effects option has been separated for quicker access. The camera can now snap pictures while recording a HD video which is quite handy for quick pictures.  The gallery has now been given a direct shortcut to the camera, while the the size of the thumbnails has reduced slightly. More importantly the transition between the pictures has improved drastically. ICS has also enabled a new unlocking feature in the device called “Face Lock”, which gives the front facing camera a whole new perspective. The default music player has also got a few changes including easier sharing along with more output options when connected to an external media device. The internet browser has also been modified with the new Roboto font and has received a few quick access options along with smoother transition between the opened tabs. Apps like Facebook get customized for ICS automatically during installation making them much faster and better looking. We have kept the best feature for last: “Google’s Voice Type” which...
