Samsung DROID Charge vs Apple iPhone 4S 16GB

by: Rann May SmithNovember 30, 2011

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).

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus hands-on and review

by: RandyNovember 29, 2011

Samsung has definitely been striking gold recently. Not only did they create the Galaxy S2, one of the best-selling Android phones in history; they are also threading new grounds with the Samsung Galaxy Note. In Malaysia, the Galaxy Note has received such a high demand. Despite restocking efforts by Samsung, the Note is practically sold out at this point of time.

There must be something Samsung is doing right.

Here comes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It’s a decent (and more affordable) tablet option that performs extremely well. We took the HoneyComb tablet for a review and below are the results:

The 7.0 Plus feels solid in [...]

ICQ App for Android Review

by: Brandon SobottaNovember 25, 2011

The ICQ app strives to merge many of your social networking features, and text messaging into one package.  It seems like a tough goal to meet, and can it live up to its efforts? While it does manage to achieve some of its goals, some of the rest may just be out of reach. Let’s take a look at what it succeeds in, and where it fails.


The Good – Consolidation

I really enjoyed this app for what it was, an app to chat with people and follow feeds. I could talk to people from Google+/talk, Facebook, ICQ, and more. I really like the lay out and the functionality of chatting, and how it combined [...]

Will Google Music Become Bigger and Better than iTunes?

by: Matthew SabatiniNovember 23, 2011

After releasing Google Music Beta a while back, people started to become suspicious. It would only be fair that Android users have access to buying music and listening to it like their iOS counterparts. The Music beta started off by allowing users to upload their whole iTunes library to Google’s “cloud”. After doing so, users would be able to listen to their music on smart phones and computers anywhere there they had internet access, be it through 3G, 4G, or WiFi. Additionally, the music files could be saved locally for offline listening.

So the ultimate question is, will Google Music be able to stand up to iTunes?

As of right now, there is no [...]

How “Wireless” Really Are iOS Software Updates?

by: Matthew SabatiniNovember 23, 2011

Earlier last week, iOS users began to update to version 5.0.1. The newer version of iOS 5 is supposed to give increased battery life to the iPhone family. However, for some users, that was clearly not the case. Some of the issues were:

Cannot Update Without Wi-Fi

Cannot Check for Update

Cannot Install Update

Clearly, there are a few flaws in the iOS over-the-air updating system. However, these problems didn’t happen to everyone, but a good deal of people were experiencing some updating errors.

In addition to these errors, some also observed that [...]

How to Capture Time-lapse Videos with Your Android Camera

by: JoseNovember 22, 2011

Life just became more exciting when Android came around. Mobile computing became a fad. And, let’s face it–with those awesome and cool apps around, Android just rocks. These apps made people’s lives easier, more productive, and even more creative.

Creative will be a word we can closely associate with a cool app called Lapse It. Basically, it’s a video capturing app, though it’s specifically built to capture time-lapse videos. The fun of capturing time-lapse videos can now be done on an Android device.

Time-lapse Videos

Time-lapse is actually a video capturing technique where frames are captured at a very low frequency. The average frame rate of a typical [...]

NOOK Tablet vs Galaxy Note: Tablet versus Phoneblet

by: Paul NuñalNovember 18, 2011

One of the hottest devices out there, the Galaxy Note and the NOOK Tablet (formerly codenamed NOOK Color 2) are two exceptional devices heading their way to store shelves for the holiday season. Samsung’s flagship phoneblet (phone-tablet), the Galaxy Note, promises to be a showstopper, considering the device is both a phone and tablet rolled into one device. On the other hand, Barnes & Noble has surprised many consumers with its latest announcement of the NOOK Tablet.

As we pit the Galaxy Note and NOOK Tablet, let’s catch a glimpse of how these two great gadgets stack up against each other. It’s a contest between a powerful phone-tablet hybrid [...]

HTC Rhyme vs Motorola DROID 3: Which Is the Better Phone for $200 on Verizon?

by: Conan HughesNovember 17, 2011

Newer, in terms of release date, does not always mean better. Countless times, a particular phone becomes so exceptional that competing companies can’t match it with their own products until some months later.

Let’s take two smartphones, for instance: the Motorola DROID 3 and the HTC Rhyme.  The DROID 3 has been with us since July, 2011, whereas the Rhyme recently arrived this October. Now, to prove my point, we proceed to the comparison.
