The Galaxy S3 kept under a knife – LITERALLY

The Galaxy S3 kept under a knife – LITERALLY

Since its launch in May, the Samsung Galaxy S III has taken the world by storm. While we have already heard about the jazz and hype surrounding Samsung’s next flagship phone, the one thing which hasn’t been talked about much is the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S3 actually features a fortified glass, better known as Gorilla Glass 2 . The sequel to last year’s Gorilla Glass which graced its presence on a number of smartphones , GG2 is actually just as tough as the original, while reducing thickness of the glass by 20%. The following video shows a guy playing Fruit Ninja with an actual dinner knife without laying a single scratch on the phone’s screen. I wouldn’t brag much about it though, would rather leave it for you guys to decide once you have seen this video....

Xbox 360 likely to be out muscled by Nvidia’s Tegra by 2014

Xbox 360 likely to be out muscled by Nvidia’s Tegra by 2014

Now here’s a news which is going to leave everyone shell shocked specially all the console gamer’s out there. Qualcomm have recently announced that it expects to offer console level GPU performance in the not too distant future, generally hinting that its Adreno 3xx GPUs would get us there. NVIDIA shared this graph today that gives its take on where PC, console and mobile GPU performance will land over the coming years. There’s nothing too revolutionary here but it does provide an interesting visual for much of what the GPU vendors have been talking about for the past couple of years. The solid lines are estimated performance, while the dotted lines are trends. According to NVIDIA, somewhere in the 2013 – 2014 timeframe is when we’ll get Xbox 360-class GPU performance out of mobile SoCs. The console line only has two points (Xbox and Xbox 360), while the mobile line starts with the original iPhone, moves up to Tegra 2 followed by the Tegra 3. It would be a remarkable achievement in the mobile realm, and it would be exciting to see what developers do with such power. Tegra 3 likely has the ability to get close to that quality, but the sad truth is that most games are developed for the common folk, and most of them don’t have hugely-power GPUs inside their phones. It’s just like getting a multi-platform game on console: the PS3 might be able to handle more than the Xbox 360 can (given the right developer). However the mobile world is different and developers definitely are willing to make versions of their games optimized just for Tegra. Hopefully, if the SoC line does eventually get to that point, we’ll be seeing some great games taking advantage of all that console-like juice    ...

HTC One X Drop test – Not for the faint of heart

HTC One X Drop test – Not for the faint of heart

The HTC One X has been creating alot of buzz since its launch a few weeks ago. By now we all know what this beast of a phone is capable of doing; from its Quad-core processor to its lightning fast camera, this device has it all. Now the big question which comes to everyone’s mind is how DURABLE this phone actually is. Whenever buying a new device, there’s often one question that sits in the back of everyone’s mind. One that not too many people are brave enough (or have pockets deep enough) to find out the answer to. How well can this device the HTC One X in this case survive a drop? It’s almost too painful to even think about it. Well, the boys at HTCPedia were brave/crazy enough to find out the answer to this question by subjecting their HTC One X to a variety of common drop scenarios, first one at hip height, then the more unlikely shoulder height drop, and finally, the worst scenario that could ever befall a device, that 1 in 6 chance a phone actually lands flat on its screen. How well did the HTC One X perform? As painful as it might be to watch, I still dare you guys to check the video out.   So after watching the video what’s your take on it ? Do let us know your comments    ...
