At first one might think it yet another bad phone seeing its price. But I had a good experience using this phone.
Input- The presence of qwerty keypad in this phone helps easy typing. The buttons are well laid-out and there is a trackball kind of thing in the middle.
Design- I cant say anything negative about its design. its metal finish and fluid display are something which add to its beauty. The phone looks like a very high end phone fro back and even front.
Camera- The camera allows to capture great quality images even though there is no flash. There is no secondary camera hence we cannot do video chat.
Internet browsing- The inbuilt browser helps easy and smooth browsing, better than Opera and others. But the device even lacks 3G and Wi fi which are key essential features of any phone. But still 2G surfing is also fast.
Response- Since there are no known bugs with my phone, it works smoothly. The response is very good. The sound quality is also awesome. The inbuilt player supports many audio and video formats.
Price- As I said, the device is mainly good because of its price factor. It costs extremely low, even though it belongs to the brand Samsung.
The phone is good for gifting to younger brother or son, if you don't want to spend on a smartphone.
I bought this phone on the recommendation of a Dooyoo member. I used it before it was completely worn out. It is a rough and tough phone, you would not damage the phone even if you drop it. I mean it is very hard.
Internet- I used Internet on a 2G network and also through wifi. While the wi-fi experience is as usual, I would honestly say that Internet browsing is very fast even though it is not a smartphone. The default browser is good for browsing and downloading. Also helps to check mails through an app. (pre installed)
Camera - Camera is pretty good when talking about clearity and quality. But the images are not of very high resolution. Since it is only 2 MP, it does not allow much zoom.
Speed- The performance of the phone is quite good. There is hardly any lag and there are no manufacterer bugs. I had never taken it to the service centre. Apps open on the go.
The device allows us to install external apps, besides many apps installed already. All of them are quite useful. Supports many games, all the java ones atleast.
The qwerty keypad allows easy and ast typing. Hence the interface is quite good. Besides having a good sized touchscreen and a qwerty keyboard, the device is not so heavy, it is very comfortable to hold, somewhere between 100 to 120 grams.
Overall the phone is a good choice for basic functions, using internet and checking mails but it has not got much to offer.
I got this smartphone just 2 days ago from Amazon after reading its review on Dooyoo and other sites. And now I will review it myself personally. It is a very good phone and I SHALL NEVER REGRET of choosing it. I have used many Android phones and this one is not so different, but gALAXY SMARTPHONES ARE A WONDER always.
Now if we talk about its category, then it belongs to middle end phone which is priced for even middle class people.
Camera- Camera is pretty good. The flash is impressive. I captured very high quality videos. But the autofocus does not work perfectly. The front VGA camera can be considered for video chatting but is not useful for other purpose.
Design- There is no 2 view about its look. It looks fantastic, especially because of its round ends which makes grip good and fits to the hand perfectly. Good sized.
Processor- I am shocked about the amazingly fast processor. A such middle end phone can have so fast processor, that is unbelievable. I played Temple Run, Road Rash, GTA 3 and all worked perfectly.
Connectivity- It has a super fast internet connectivity. The inbuilt browser works so smoothly. Infact I prefer using it rather than Opera, Firefox or Chrome.
The biggest disadvantage of this phone is its sound quality. It lags badly and in noway seems to be from a brand like Samsung. Still it is good for normal function, but not the best for playing audio clips.
Another thing is its poor front camera as I mentioned earlier.
But the phone has many reasons to purchase it. There are very few disadvantages. I highly recommend to get it as a budget phone.
The Nokia Lumia800 was the first Windows phone by NOKIA. It is highly hyped. People think it a very good smartphone. But as per my personal experience, it is not worth really those compliments.
The interface is quite good. That is what I like about this phone, it is much like the Windows 7 OS. (I mean Mango of-course.) The looks of the device are not quite impressive. It is much similar to Nokia N9. The furnishing is not well, and colour options are not good.e is pretty well. I had no touch issues when using this phone.
There are not much supported apps in the Windows store, as we already know, it is very back of Android market. But still the phone's interface makes it a considerable smartphone of high end.
Camera- The phone has a very good camera, as always the NOKIA phones had had. You can easily capture good quality images and even auto-focus. I loved snapping through its camera. But sometimes the camera does not give us real feel when capturing videos.
Processor- Though the processor is of 1.4 Ghz, it ishould have been very fast, but dont know why sometimes it lags while running very high end games. It is suitable for other purpose.
Design- The design of the phone is much similar to N9, It is not very stylish but looks good in the hand and fits perfectly.
Big issue is its battery problem. As with all smartphones, NOKIA is not working to improve the battery. It drains out using few hours of internet.
But if you are a smartphone lover, you should give it a try.
As I mentioned in the title there is "it" in the phone which makes it stand out from the crowd. Curious about it? Let me tell you, that is its amazingly low price tag. I purchased the phone from Amazon a week ago, I got it only due to its amazingly low price.
When talking about the specifications, they are quite high. i mean a Qualcomm processor is a rare one to find. There is also good amount of RAM and the device supports the latest Android 4.2. The internal storage of 16 GB is perfect for storing good number of apps and games. But it could have been even better.
Camera- Camera is undoubtedly good but it should have been better. Such a high end phone should have atleast 10 MP camera though it has only 8.
Design- The design is fantastic, an elegant look with royal furnishing. It makes grip better.
Interface- Interface is just like other Android phones, Jelly Bean does not make much difference. Touch response is awesome.
Cons- There is no facility to attach an external microSD card , hence the memory is restricted to 16 GB.
camera could have been much better.
There is no 4G support
If you are new to the world of mobile phones then this is for you. i had this phone weeks ago and then I gifted it to my brother. It is a good one, but there is not so much to do. Since, it has a low price it can be a good choice.
Many people keep 2 phones together, one a smartphone and other a feature phone that atleast has a good battery backup. This phone is suitable to run internet at a good speed. Allows us to check mails and automatically notifies, good for professionals who often check email.
The build is nice and durable. The keyboard is very user friendly, allows typing without a mess. As I said earlier, it is a phone with an extremely good battery backup and is suitable for messaging and chatting. there is a complete integration of facebook and twitter, keeps us online on the go.
Camera is of good quality but so much better, it lacks essential flash.
But atleast we can put microSD card in it. Supports pdf files and many apps.
It is a shame that it even lacks wifi and there is no 3G support. Screen resolution is very low.
But still it is more than what we accept from such price.
It is the time to accept that the industry has got a new king, the smartest phone Xperia Z. Sony calims it to be the best of it in a smartphone and it seems true. It has really got all that makes the final phone. It is perhaps better than S4 but is it a iphone killer? The question still prevails.
The device runs on the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is expected to get a 4.2 upgrade soon. If you really love smartphone, you cannot miss it. The phone is dust resistant, completely water resistant and I have personally tested it. It is very durable and Sony invested much in its make.
Xperia Z is one of the very few phones than run on Qualcomm processor. Processing in this smartphone is quite smooth and faster. It allows to run multiple apps without any lags. Even the apps that require a high end tablet to run effectively run on this magical smartphone smoothly.
This smartphone uses the Bravia HD technology that is the key feature of Sony Xperia Smartphones and its display is very much similar to the retina eye display of the Apple. The interface is very promising and looks are really convincing. It is rated above 90% score in all the sites.
The another best thing is its high internal storage of 16 GB that can be even expanded through a micro SD card. It is something which is offered by its competitor.
Processor of 1.5 Ghz is sufficient for multi tasking and running multiple windows.
And when talking about the RAM, it is more than sufficient which is of 2 GB . This is yet another specification in which its competitors like S3, iphone lag. There is a 13 MP camera which is no doubt the best in the category. Supports HD 1080 pixel recording. Even after using continuous camera and video player, the battery does not easily drains out. It is a key feature of it that there is a good battery life and backup.
The look is very premium and also royal. Manufactured by piano black, it has both front and back high gloss glass. It is a rectangular piece of block but Sony made it look awesome.
It rocks in terms of size. The screen size is pretty good (5 inches) and phone dimensions are like others or slightly greater. Amazingly, besides its size, the deivce is very light, just 146 g which is far more lighter than others.
There is a SIM slot towards the right side which makes easy swapping of the SIM, no need to open the panel, take out battery and do other crap. The same is with micro SD slot.
Infact now it has no other competitor to deal with. No doubt it is better than Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X. Only the iPhone 5 is of its competition.
The interface is like other Sony Xperia high phones, their is a slight difference.
I found only one drawback that you cannot take out the battery from the phone unless really required. There are minor bugs which will fixed by updates.
After NOKIA lost its rule in the mobile world, Android phones and ios iphones have dominated the smartphone. It is a pleasure to see NOKIA releasing the Lumia Series and specially Lumia 820, much cheaper than Nokia Lumia 920. Nokia has got a lot of hopes with this that would divert Android market to Windows.
The hardware specs are just fabulous. A very fast processor, and nothing to say about the camera. It is among the very few phones in its range that support microSD card. This is lacked in high end phones. The RAM is quite high. Everything is fine except that it lacks a high internal storage. Users who install frequent apps and games may have to clear space from internal memory. Also the battery life is a worry, as usual it is not too good. The camera is crystal clear and captures sharp quality images but drains out battery.
The best thing is its look and trust of NOKIA, the back panel is great.
Xperia S is another great release from the revolutionary Xperia series. uNDOUBTEDLY, THE SPECS OF THIS PHONE ARE VERY HIGH END AND ARE THE MOST one can get out of such a considerable price.
I love its look, it has NFC compatibility which is one the rare specifications.
The camera is of extremely high quality, it is the most one can expect out of a smartphone. 12 mp camera with LED flash.
The best thing about Xperia S is its premium build and fabulous look. There is dedicated button for camera and its design is very royal indeed. Another feature which impresses me is its huge internal storage, allowing us to store unlimited number of apps and games. It has latest Android 4.0 and even Sony is working out for a JellyBean update,
There are also some disadvantages that cannot be ignored. The battery life is slightly poor and would not last more than a day on consistent use. The biggest disadvantage is that it does not support external micro SD card. Also it is a little heavier.
Samsung Galaxy S2 is a definitely high end phone in the market. I have been using this smartphone for over a month and I had the best experience with it. Its looks are awesome, slim and a big screen adds to its beauty. It has a very fast touch response and due to high processor, no apps ever lag. The screen is very crisp and clear and it never strains our eyes. When talking about audio quality and camera, it has no match, it is simply the best. The camera allows full HD 1080p recording giving a great user experience. It is a tough competitor to iphone 4s. The rate is quite reasonable.
Besides numerous advantages, there are some disadvantages too. The back cover is not too handy, does not provide a perfect grip. Also battery is good but not great. The layout of inbuilt keyboard is crapy.
But even though there are some minor disadvantages, they can be neglected.
