Two of the most sought-after handsets, the Samsung Droid Charge and the iPhone 4S 16 GB, are making their way into people’s Christmas wish lists. Each phone carries its own trademark features, which make it very difficult to choose between two good products.
This comparison will help you get an overview of the two phones’ chief features and how they stack up against each other. Hopefully, at the end of the post, you can get a fair idea of which one to strike off your Christmas list (that is, if you only have to choose between the two).External Features

Verizon recently filed a trademark application for “Hologram,” which stirred rumors about a new handset device with 3D capabilities from the said company. No further information was provided, but rumors has it that Verizon might produce either an entirely new 3D phone or an upgrade of handsets we have seen before.
AT&T and Sprint were the first ones to launch the 3D phones in the U.S. without the need for glasses such as HTC Evo 3D and LG Thrill. It was disappointing, thoug,h that these phones didn’t live up to the expectations in terms of sales, but Verizon may have felt the need to catch up with the other providers in terms of technology. Hence, the [...]

The ASUS Transformer Prime comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display and a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 [...]
Just when you are still trying to catch your breath over the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Korean company seems to have started testing possible processors to put on the the Galaxy S II’s successor, aptly and fondly codenamed the Samsung Galaxy S III.
A likely candidate is Samsung’s own dual-core Exynos processor, which is already inside most of the Galaxy S II versions. However, a quad-core Exynos has been recently discovered by Korean blog Chocoberry: Paradise Lost.
While sorting through postings and logs on the Linux Kernel Archives, Chocoberry stumbled upon mentions of an Exynos 4412, a 32 nm ARM Cortex-A9 with four cores. The Exynos 4412 [...]
After Apple acquired the patent for the Slide to Unlock feature for all iPhone phones, Google has also been officially awarded last week the patent for the Android pattern unlock feature. Pattern Unlock sets Android apart from Apple’s iOS and is, perhaps, the chief reason why Google wanted a patent for such technology.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted Google the rights to patent number 20110283241 entitled “Touch Gesture Actions From A Device’s Lock Screen,” which, in a nutshell, is described as follows:
A lock screen view is displayed on the mobile device to prevent unauthorized and inadvertent access to the mobile [...]

It has become a tradition for Google engineers to put Easter eggs in every Android version that comes out of their kitchen, and Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) is no exemption. In the Gingerbread, Google placed a horde of zombies, while it was a buzzing bee, of course, for Honeycomb. This time, for Ice Cream Sandwich, they placed a flying Bugdroid, styled in a similar way to the Nyan Cat on YouTube that spread around virally a while back.
To view the ICS Easter egg, navigate to Settings > About phone and tap several times on the Android version. A small Bugdroid comes to life on your screen, but it doesn’t do anything at all. However, if you long-press on [...]

Bell Canada recently launched LG’s 720p HD smartphone, the LG Optimus LTE, said to one of the chief competitors of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The praises it received on the first day of launch brought intrigue and high hopes that the LG contender would be brought stateside, and since both AT&T and Bell Canada share the same frequency, it was very possible.
