Ask people to list off wireless speaker systems they can control with their phone, and you’re probably going to get a single answer: Sonos. A new challenger has approached, by way of the Phorus Play-Fi, and they’re looking to take on the established name in the franchise by putting out quality wireless speakers of their own. Their big selling point? Total support for Android devices via their Play-Fi app, and even going so far as to brand their products Android ready (instead of the fruity alternative) to elicit support. It’s a bold move, for certain, but does it work? Can the Play-Fi contend [...]
The first Nexus device was the HTC Nexus One which ran on Android 2.1 Eclair and then was upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo. The Samsung Nexus S then followed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The third Nexus came in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which introduced the merged Android OS for phones and tablets, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. And, to represent the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Google worked with LG to create the latest Nexus device known as the LG Nexus 4 E960.
But, it is not the only Jelly Bean phone around. In fact, Samsung has one — a phone-tablet or phablet, to be precise. The successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000, Samsung’s [...]
One thing is for certain: Sony isn’t going to let trends in the Android world dictate how it designs its phones. Both the Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at) and the Xperia TX LT29i are gorgeously designed, standing out from the competition — thanks to their curved backs, 13 MP shooters, and gorgeous displays.
Both of these phones, however, also stand out for another reason. While a lot of competitors are producing quad-core beasts, these two Sony devices are equipped with dual-core processors. Does this mean that these phones have been left behind? The Xperia T is best known as the Bond phone, complete with a cameo appearance in Bond’s latest movie [...]
The Sony Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at on AT&T in the U.S.) is a gorgeous device bearing Sony’s unique design, but Sony isn’t the only smartphone manufacturer out there that knows how to design a phone. The LG Optimus G was LG’s latest offering to the market, and it certainly did not disappoint either. Not only was it a powerful phone, it was quite attractive, as well, especially with its glittering backpanel.
With Google and LG’s collaboration to produce the Nexus 4 E960, you can now find a similarly beautiful glittering backpanel on the latest phone in the Nexus series. The Nexus 4 is a truly attractive phone, enough to match the Xperia [...]
It isn’t uncommon for Android devices to have reputations. The Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 is considered by many to be the King of Android phones, and with good reason. According to Samsung, it sold 30 million Galaxy S3 units during the first 150 days after the phone was released in May.
The Sony Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at on AT&T in the U.S.), on the other hand, did not quite gain a reputation. Rather, Sony has attached James Bond’s name to the device. That’s right — Agent 007, man of charisma, charm, and exquisitely tailored suits, has his name attached to the Xperia T and even uses it for a few seconds in the latest Bond movie, [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 is one of the hottest smartphones on the market. Samsung claims that it sold 30 million units within the first 150 days after the Galaxy S3’s initial release. This phone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and introduces the natured-inspired TouchWiz Nature UX by Samsung.
Google’s Nexus devices are also known for the pure Google experience that they offer to their users. The newest addition to the Nexus line comes in the form of the Google Nexus 4 E960 by LG. This phone carries the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and some new goodies, such as Photo Sphere and a revamped Camera app.
Does the Nexus 4 have what it takes to match the [...]
