Stylistically, Nokia designed the Lumia 928 to be super sleek and ultra-thin with sharp corners and flat sides - a wise improvement to its cousin the Lumia 920, which was a bit clunky and thick. And clearly Nokia also heard those naysayers who complained that the 920 was too heavy, because the 928 is ultra-lightweight. Under the hood, the Lumia 928 is quite similar to the 920. Both run on Windows Phone 8 OS with a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor for seamless multitasking and fast performance. They also both have a 4.5-inch 720p HD screen. However while the 920 features an LCD display, the 928 opted for AMOLED technology, which should make colors more vibrant and vivid.
Just like the Nokia Lumia 920, the 928 also boasts an 8.7-megapixel camera with image stabilization... read more
The first thought that will come to your mind when you picked up the Glacial Silver or Stealth Black HTC One for the first time is that the all-aluminum design is sleek and stylish and the metal case has a quality feel about it. Once you are done drooling over the look of the phone and take a minute to power it on, you will instantly be impressed with the 1080p high-definition display showing the Android operating system layered with the visually engaging BlinkFeed. BlinkFeed collects news and current events about topics you are interested in and combines them with your social media networks like Facebook and Twitter... read more
Over the last few years, smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, LG, and Motorola have made improvements to the cameras in their latest smartphones by increasing the Megapixel count. HTC's latest smartphone, the HTC One, deviated from this trend. Instead, they introduced us to: "ultrapixel". The HTC One's camera allows 300% more light to enter the UltraPixel sensor that is 4x's larger than a Megapixel sensor. On paper, the larger sensor should give the HTC One a distinct advantage over the... read more
I have been using DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola since November 2012 and just love it. In the spirit of full disclosure I am a DROID fan – I have owned an original DROID, a DROID X and most recently a DROID Bionic. The RAZR MAXX HD is the best by far with its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Why? Battery Life, Look & Feel, and Widgets.
Battery Life - The RAZR MAXX packs a whopping 3,300ma battery into its slim elegant case. It is over double the capacity of an iPhone 5 battery. It is 20% bigger than the Droid Bionic's extra cost extended battery which required an extra thick back to be added to the phone and made it hard to fit in your pocket. You can run it... read more
The Samsung Galaxy S III is an ingenious, highly advanced Android-powered smartphone that is equally intuitive as it is easy to navigate that even my mother can use it. This impressive device, which is available on Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint and Metro PCS, has a huge screen. It's big enough to read her email without her bifocals! At the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S III is so slim it could fit easily in her pocket (though I know she will put it in her large "duffle bag-sized" purse where she could store a lifetime supply of anything). The 8-megapixel camera takes amazing pictures. She can easily use it on family vacations instead of her point & shoot camera. The Android OS is so intuitive, that she won't need any assistance with set up. Instead, she can immediately... read more
A creative mind does not have the luxury off turning on and off 9-5 Monday through Friday. Inspirational ideas can hit you anytime and anywhere. This is why I keep my Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone with me wherever I go. My phone is my sketchbook, camera, laptop and planner all in one. Before my Samsung Galaxy Note II, I was sketching on paper and napkins where ever I was. I then would have to take the sketches home and scan them into my computer for safe keeping. With the Note 2, I just pull out my stylist and use my “Sketchbook Mobile” app by AUTODESK INC. to draw whatever is on my mind right then and there.
Not only is the Note II great for coming up with ideas on-the-go, it also has made my meetings easier. I no longer have to sit behind a laptop to take notes, read... read more
