Meizu MX2 goes official - quad- core, HD screen and Jelly Bean

The Meizu MX2 has become official today, just as previously expected. The device comes with a new MX5S chipset with four 32nm Cortex-A9 CPU cores, 2 GB worth of RAM, a 4.4" screen of WXGA resolution (1280 x 800 pixels) with the impressive ~347 ppi density. There's also a faster GPU and Flyme 2.0 on top of Android Jelly Bean on board.
The Meizu MX2 will hit the shelves in China in the middle of December in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB versions. They will cost $400, $480 or $640 respectively or ¥2,499/¥2,999/¥3,999. It remains unclear if the MX2 will launch globally and when.

The Meizu MX2 has borrowed many design cues from its predecessor's, but instead of a physical home button there is a capacitive one this time. The display on the Meizu MX2 has really thin bezels around it (3.15 mm), giving the smartphone an even more impressive look.

The camera on the back is still an 8 MP one - it's has a backside illuminated sensor abd an F/2.4 lens. The MX2 can do 9 frames per second in drive mode and comes with the Wide Dynamic Range mode we know from previous MXes and four-direction Panorama, among others.

The Meizu MX2 is powered by Jelly Bean, topped with Meizu's Flyme 2.0 UI. Aside from the backup to the cloud option Flyme offers, the smartphone will also offer video and lossless music cloud streaming, but we'll need to wait and see how good that actually is.

My personal opinion, This thing looks FREAKING AWSOME, although it does steel a design off of the iPhone, and stands a good chance to be mistake to go up against apple, but the hardware and UI is really, really awsome.

LG Optimus One Series Best Roms List

CM10 JB Stable 4.1.2
-All LG Optimus One phones

CM7 (looks like ics) CyanMobileX
-LG Optimus One (Can be substituted with proper bb fix or kernel)

Oxygen 3.0 ICS
-LG Optimus One ONLY (cannot be substituted with kernels and stuff to work on others, so new bb)

Oxygen 2.3.2 GB
-LG Optimus One new bb (can use bb fix and/or kernels to fix for old bb)

This is the list of the best LG Optimus One series roms so far. Most of these are stable and work well. ICS and JB can always have bugs because they are ICS and JB. But if it says it can be substituted, then use the stock .35 kernel from the LG Phoenix and everything should work. Enjoy!

CyanMobile X Rom

I was looking around for other roms that people are now making for our beloved lg optimus one, which is a piece of crap in many ways, but it is alot easier to flash roms, root and more.

I found a couple of roms out their and this one really caught my eye, it looks like ics, works like jelly bean, and is customizable like miui and cyanogenmod and aokp combined! Surprising right?!

I have not flashed it yet as im in school right now and cannot download it and transfer it to my phone, but i will do it at home to day and write a full review on it. Their are no videos on it so i guess you have to do it your self.

Best android phone pictures (not phones) updated

LG Nexus 4 E960Nexus
Close windowMeizu MX2

ZTE is coming back and LG is getting better

Ok, ZTE is a small android smartphone manufacturer, i personaly have a ZTE and its ok but not such a high quality build and most of the ZTE phones are low end 600 800 megahertz phones. But now ZTE wants to show what it is made of.

Rumored for a next year release comes the ZTE Apache. It will reportedly run on an 8 (that's right, eight) core processor made by MediaTek. It will be made using the TSMC 28 nm process with Cortex-A15 CPU inside.
The ZTE Apache is expected to arrive by May next year and sport a 13 MP camera, 1080p display, 3G and 4G LTE. There's nothing else we know about the smartphone at this stage, but ZTE already has our attention.
The first dual-core smartphone come to the market in early 2011 and the first quad-cores were unveiled at the MWC in February this year. This means that seeing eight-cores in 2013 is possible.
All I have to say is...WHAT THE FLIP!!!

Now LG is now becomeing like HTC, pump out phones as fast as possible (afap).

LG is going to release a successor to the Optimus G successor – that rumor is hardly going to raise any eyebrows. However we also got to learn the some of the purported specs of the device and that's where things get exciting.
The LG Optimus G2 (or perhaps G II) is reportedly going to pack a quad-core 2.0 or 2.5 GHz Krait processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM (at least). This sounds a lot like the Qualcomm's MSM8974 chipset, which is a part of the chip maker's upcoming Prime lineup.
At the front there's going to be a newly developed LG display, which will have 1080p resolution. We already heard that LG is working on a 1080p screen for smartphones and it's only logical that the Optimus G successor will be the first to employ it.
As for the camera, 13MP or more will be present for sure, since the current generation Optimus G is already offering 13MP snapper on its back.
Finally, the rumor has it that the Android version powering the next LG flagship will be 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
The Optimus G2 will hit the market next year and while LG is (supposedly) aiming at a Q3 release, which makes sense, given that the Qualcomm chipset is only going to become available in Q2 of next year.

Epic News About CyanogenMod

CyanogenMod Hit by Rogue Team Member

CyanogenMod Hit by Rogue Team Member
Recently, the more astute among you may have noticed that the CyanogenMod project has begun to use the domain rather than their previous .com version—a seemingly incongruous change, unfortunately driven by a malicious team member (turned rogue).
SatanR1, to use his username, bought the .com domain name for CyanogenMod via his company, Metserve Enterprises, when they started their own site to host builds and infrastructure such as their build system and distribution network. At some point in the past few months, the owner of the domain decided to fraudulently impersonate Steve Kondik (Cyanogen) towards companies, in order to seek donations and financial contributions. These were claimed to be going to the CyanogenMod project, but were in fact going directly to the impersonator himself.
To make matters worse, this user had (and has) full control of the .com domain name (which CyanogenMod are currently attempting to regain via the ICANN dispute procedure). The impersonator tried to extort $10,000 from the team to have the domain name returned (which they naturally cannot and will not pay). As of today, the domain name has been directed away from the project’s site, presumably in an attempt to try to gain some further money from the team.
To echo the request from the CyanogenMod Team,
If you are a company out there that believes they have also entered into agreements with “CM” by this person impersonating Steve, please contact We’d like to get a handle on how widespread this was before we file charges.
The Android community is fairly tightly knit, and to see such a flagrant abuse of trust is frankly shocking. To see someone attempt to extort vast sums of money from an open source project (after already having obtained large sums of money by purporting to represent them to other companies) is likely very distracting for the team, yet they have pressed ahead with the release of CyangenMod 10 nonetheless.
I hope you will agree that this kind of behavior is totally unacceptable, and that such unethical business practices, especially by someone operating under the guise of their business, should be condemned by the community as a whole.

Samsung Galaxy SIII Review

************************ Samsung Galaxy S3 Review  ************************

hello viewers, posting my first review is exciting. i would like to say being the owner of a Galaxy s3 verizon, i love the phone. No lag at all is all i can say. Software is latest ice cream sandwich 4.0.4. The 4G LTE is blazing fast internet ranging from 15-20mb per second. The camera is just outstanding both in low light and bright light pictures. What i like best about the phone is the speed and the size of the screen. A 1.5 Gig processor is plenty for any task. With 2gig of ram. i only use about half of that multitasking on just about every app i have. Although the screen is big, its sometimes difficult pressing something toward the top right because of the size of the screen. i have also opened and disassembled just about every piece on the phone. so say something broke, all it takes is 10 screws and you're in. unlike the iphone cough* (i love the iphone) cough* (not) you cant take the back out and do as needed. The phone is thin and light. And if you happen to be in a war of some sort, you could use it as a shield. ;)

the only fraud i see in this phone is the plastic makeup. i had it for only 3 days and the power button is loose which again is plastic and if it were metallic then there would be no problem. Also, if mulitasking and using it for about an hour while on charge, the battery will get hot but thats not a major issue.

my overall rating for the phone:  8.5

the plastic makeup makes it light i understand but easy to break. so consider that when buying this phone.

other than that, i would say its the second best aside with the Droid DNA.

this is mark konopadchenko signing off


Apple Patents Are Retarded

Patent System Fail: All your Rectangle with Rounded Corners are Belong to Apple

In a move for which no level of facepalm can suffice, the USPTO granted Apple a patent for a rectangle with rounded corners last week. Regardless of how ridiculous it may sound, sadly it’s true. According to patent no. D670,286, design rights for a “portable display device” with an external shape that is a rectangle with rounded corners are now owned by Apple.
See for yourself:
Apple Rounded Rectangle Patent D670286
Note that only the solid line is part of the patented design; the dotted lines serve as mere reference, or more likely influence, to make it look more like a patentable product, but who exactly are they fooling here? The USPTO, apparently.
What makes it even more inexplicable is the fact that design patents are almost always quite specific, to the extent that anyone else would really need to replicate that particular design in order to infringe upon it. In this case however, nothing else but the rounded cornered rectangular shape is patented—no buttons, no back shape, no screen shape, not even the radius of the rounded corner. This in itself raises questions about the practical validity of this patent, and whether those in charge of putting a stamp on this patent application were under the influence or in the reality distortion field.
As most of you may know, this isn’t the first time Apple has resorted to something like this. The company has had a history of getting overly broad and non-essential patents, trying tolicense them to its competitors, and taking to court those who fail to comply. Such broad patents awarded to Apple in the past were at times deemed as invalid by the USPTO after further investigations but the damage was done by that time, in form of import bans on competitors for the products initially declared as infringing. In the end, it’s the consumers who suffer from all of this.
So what should be the course of action from here? As discussed recently by egzthunder1 inThe Weekly Apple Fail Update, both the USPTO and the US justice system should take cues from the UK, extract their heads from their rears, and take a closer look at what is being examined before awarding a patent or a ruling. Untill that happens, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that Apple doesn’t start taking all tablet and smartphone manufacturers to court for infringing upon this one.

HTC Droid DNA Best Android Ever Made

I recently found out this from gsm arena, and realy its the best android made, ever!

read on...

HTC is having a hard time competing at the highest level of the smartphone market lately, but its latest smartphone might be what was needed to turn the tables. The all-caps name of the HTC DROID DNA is, for once, well deserved as this is certainly one of the most exciting smartphones we have seen lately.

On paper the DROID DNA is the strongest candidate for the smartphone of the season title.

The defining feature of the DROID DNA is the 1080p resolution of the display - that's over double the pixels of an HD screen. This pushes the pixel density to the insane 440ppi, leaving the 326ppi Retina display in the dust.

The 5" screen of the HTC DROID DNA uses Super LCD 3 tech - the One X used the previous generation of this tech, so we expect nothing but the best. We'll be taking a closer look at it soon enough as we're at HTC and Verizon's New York event.

The rest of the phone is nothing to frown at either - it's powered by the same Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset as the Google Nexus 4, which has four Krait cores, 2GB RAM and Adreno 320 on board. It has wireless charging too.

Two crucial differences between the DNA and the Nexus (aside from the screen, of course) are the LTE connectivity, supported by the Verizon 4G network.

HTC didn't stop there - they added some of their signature features to the phone. Sure, the latest Sense UI is present, on top of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but there's also the 8MP camera with F/2.0 aperture and ImageChip (which handles the advanced camera features) and Beats Audio with their 2.55v amplifier.

The only worry is that all of this is running off a 2,020mAh battery, which is smaller than what the HTC One X+ got.

There will be a lot to test when the HTC DROID DNA gets in our lab, but we'll start with an on-site hands-on. Stay tuned - the live photos garnished with our first impressions should appear on the following pages shortly.

LG and the Nexus 4 fail to meet expectations!

About a week and a half ago i posted that the LG Nexus 4 is the best phone their is, but to be the nexus means to be the best. Well LG has completely disapointed me and many others.

Quoted from XDA Developers:

Nexus 4 Battery Shot Reveals Potential Quality Issues

Nexus 4 Battery Shot Reveals Potential Quality Issues
Several pictures of the LG-built Google Nexus 4 have been showing up across the Internet. The featured image in this article really caught my eye because it shows the internals of the device relatively well. While this device has not yet been released, a lot can be said (and judged) about a device’s hardware, even without full board shots. Overall, it appears to show that LG’s build quality is considerably lower than that of the Samsung Nexus devices in the past. In this article, I intend to write about the design pros and cons of the highly anticipated Nexus 4.

Design Pluses

Large external speaker - One of the biggest complaints with Samsung’s designs is the low powered/small sized speaker. While it delivers a trade-off in battery life versus sound quality/quantity,  the Nexus 4′s larger speaker should suffice to produce adequate sound.
Good speaker placement - The speaker placement on the Nexus 4 places the speaker at the corner of the device rather than the center, where your palm blocks it in portrait mode. While the Galaxy Nexus forces you to hold the device in an odd position to bounce sound from your palm to your ear while in portrait mode, the Nexus 4 will not have this problem. The corner orientation places the speaker in a optimal position for both landscape and horizontal palm redirection while watching movies.   This same orientation can be seen on the Meizu MX.

Design Minuses

Bolted in battery - The defining line between “Operator Replaceable” and “Qualified Service Technician” is the use of tools. The Nexus 4 not only requires a screw driver, but the plastic tabs on the edges will break if removed improperly. Once those tabs are broken, signal quality will be lost from the connection with the Spring Antenna Connections.
Spring Antenna Connections - The problem with Spring Antenna Connections or simply Spring Connections in general is: When tension is lost, signal is lost. Loss of tension between the back plate and the board can occur when a tab breaks or the back plate is warped. Warping of back plates can occur easily, and is quite frequent as devices age from stress, dropping, impact, or even a day in a hot car. You may notice some old devices such as remote controls or phones will squeak and creek when you press on them. This noise is generally attributed to warping or breakage of tabs, which would be critical for the WiFi/NFC/data/GPS/Bluetooth connections on the Nexus 4.
Lack of impact zones - Many current devices including Samsung’s entire lineup include impact areas around the bolts and the edge of the device.  This allows the device to sustain impact without altering the physical structure of the board, causing components to come lose.  The absence of impact areas causes a device to be more fragile and less resistant to impacts.  This also increases a device’s warpage risk, which can alter device dimensions and cause the Spring Connections to fail.
Tape used instead of structure and shielding - A well designed device will use its own structure to hold components in place. Tape is a disposable part. Disposable parts have no place inside of a properly designed device. The disadvantage here is tape can take components off the board when removed. Tape is also messy, and leaves residue on a board and other components. There is never a situation when using tape instead of physical structure is required, and the use of tape is often a harbinger for other build quality problems.

Recommendations for next revision

Make the speaker grill bigger - A speaker grill is designed to keep the operator’s fingers out, not to keep water out.  The small size of the speaker grill on the Nexus 4 will impede speaker sound and motion, and thus the overall dB level. This physical obsturction means the speaker wastes power on compression of air rather than audible sound creation.
Replace the battery tape - Instead of using tape for the battery, a slight overhang at the bottom of the metalized battery section will suffice to keep the battery from moving around inside the device.  Another way is to place glue or double-sided tape on the bottom of the battery.
Replace the communications tape - Instead of metalized tape on the communications section of the board, use a physical shield cap, which makes it serviceable and more tidy.
Use impact zones - Impact zones prolong device life.
Use a physical connector and a film substrate for the back cover - The back cover of the device consists of several separate connections spread across the entire device.  This means warpage anywhere in that area can cause the device to lose connectivity.   The primary focus of a mobile device is connectivity, and that should not be trusted to spring connections. The spring connections should be replaced with a physical connector of some sort. A physical connector would also save space.
Do not bolt down batteries - Batteries should be easily removable in the event of a problem.  Getting the rear cover off is enough work.  The compression method has been trusted across the spring connectors on the board, which are held in place solely by pressure. A proper connector holds itself in place. A slight bit of foam-rubber would do the same job as a spring, save space, save tools and remove the need for “tools” when replacing the battery.
Do not put the IMEI on the back cover – There will surely be aftermarket accessories for the device or people who want to replace the back cover, or add an extended battery.  The IMEI should be on the board, or at least bolted to the device.
At first glance, the Nexus 4′s hardware appears to be a quality downgrade from the Galaxy nexus which we reviewed previously.  After release we hope to be able to give a much better analysis.

Android Phone Wars Episode 5

Ok, for now, their were not many phones to compare but now....(drum roll)...their is!

Today we will be taking a look at the HTC One X+, The LG Optimus G, The new Google Nexus 4, and the current winner, The Samsung Galaxy SIII.

So lets get a round up on the Samsung galaxy s 3. The phone is crazily thin and when i got to hold it, i was afraid i would break it right their in my hand. It is now updatable to android 4.1 and maybe 4.2. It has a 4.8 inch full HD super AMOLED display. It has a 4 core 1.4 ghz proccesor. It has 16, 32, and 64 gb of storage. It has a 2100 mAh battery. It has a load of sensorsAccelerometer, Proximity sensor, Gyro sensor, and even a barometer. It has a digital compass and RGB Light sensor.

It has a 8 megapixel camera with no shutter lag at all. The front camera is 1.9 mega pixels. The video recording is 30 fps and full HD.

It comes in around 6 colors (i think) and available at $199 on contract from At&t and T-Mobile.

I think it stacks up well against the rest of the phones.

The LG Optimus G came out a couple of days ago and it is a shocking device from LG. It has a 1.5 ghz 4 core proccesor. It has 16 gb storage capability, 2100 mAh battery, 4.7 inch screen which is able to be used as a dual screen. You can play a game and check your email at the same time. The camera is 8 mp, and front camra is 1.3 mp. The video recording is HD resolution.

This is intense from LG. Usualy LG makes small phones like the Optimus one.

So the specs are crazy for an LG.

The HTC One X came out not to long ago, and for some reason, being the most powerful phone is just not enough. It seems like they hacked their own phone and over clocked it to 1.7 GIGA HERTZ, 
What the Heck! This is the all new ONE X +

So it has a 1.7 GHz quad core processor, an 8 mp camera on the back, A 4.7 inch screen, It has all the same sensor as the Samsung except that it does not have a barometer and RGB light sensor. It has Beats audio built in enhancements. It has HD video recording and 1.6 mp camera in the front. It also has the same battery as the Samsung.

Now, The GOOGLE NEXUS 4, the new Google nexus. It has a 4 inch screen which i personally thing is perfect. It is running android 4.2 jelly bean 2. it has same Processor and everything as the LG because it is made by LG. The thing is it is unlocked to any GSM network, and comes with 2 different storage capacity. It seems like google is selling it as an ipod instead of phone.

I have no freaking idea what is up with the back of the phone though.

To sum it up:

Samsung gets a total of 8 points
LG gets 6 points
HTC gets 6 points
Nexus gets 8 too!

So our best will go to the new Nexus, because it is a nexus, it is stock. My friend recently bough an S3, even i was confused.

So here is the list of our phones so far.

Google Nexus 4 (removed because of quality issues)
HTC One X+
LG Optimus G
Samsung Galaxy s3
Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Google)
Motorola Droid Razr Maxx

HTC Evo 4G
HTC Rezound

iPhone 5
Motorola Atrix 2
iPhone 4s

Quick Root, CWM recovery, and flashing guide.

This is a shortened version of all the stupid rooting and flashing guides. Don't worry, if you back up everything you need, then no problems will ever occur, this is the easiest and safest process ever in the world.
do all this on full battery

-download z4root app to your phone, hit root, if that does not work, don't worry, download super one click, from shortfuse webiste. turn on usb debugging and then plug it to your pc, hit root once the program is up.

2. Recovery
download rom manager from app store, once it is open, click flash recovery, pick your phone, and wait. to test it, turn off your phone, hold home, volume up, and power at the same time, as soon as you see the unsusual boot image, let go. volume buttons are up and down, back is back, and menu is ok.

3. download rom from internet, and or kernel if needed.
go onto recovery, (power down etc.) navigate to backup and restore, click backup, and then wait. then go to wipe data, click yes, wipe cache too. Go to advanced, click wipe dalvik cache, and wipe battery stats.

4. go to install zip from sd, go to choose zip from sd, then find your rom, flash it, wait, reboot, wait at least 5 minutes, if the phone is not booting properly, then go to recovery, click backup and restore, hit restore, and wait. if the rom is ok, and you need to flash gapps or kernel, go into recovery and flash gapps, reboot, then kernel.

if anything every goes wrong, just restore your backup. need to back up apps? then get android assistant, go to tools, and backup your apps.

note : rebot after each flash (installation of rom and kernel).


need help, just ask, find me on xda at russian392

LG has finally made something good!

I recently discovered that the LG Optimus G has been released. Its a heck of a phone really,
specs. The phone will be used as the base for the next google nexus. It is almost perfect, great everything.

You have to take a look at this

When did they come up with this. first its lg optimus one, then optimus black, then the new, best phone in the world. AWSOME. The problem is, it is CDMA which means sprint! sprint gets the best phone ever yet.

It has a 1.5 gHz quad core processor, a 4.7 inch HD display, 10+ hours of talk time because of the 2,100 mAh battery which provides 13.5 days of standby time. It will be running android 4.0 ice cream sandwich. It will come with the new Google Chrome for mobile devices. It is 4G LTE capable. It also has a 13 Mega Pixel camera.

It has so much more I would like to talk about, but i can't, its TOO MUCH. So head over to their website link up there. Thank You!

Is it worth waiting for an update? ROM List

Most people can only be convinced of rooting their android because their phone will probably never, ever, EVER, get an official update. That was why i rooted my lg thrive and now it has turned into a more functional phone than a non rooted samsung galaxy s3 will ever be. I am running cyanogen mod 10. But i have used the following
CyanogenMod 7-7.2
CyanogenMod 9 (multiple ones, luphirp, aosp, aokp etc.)
CyanogenMod 10
Oxygen Rom android 2.3.7
And alot more weird crazy roms.

These were all roms that had issues and probelms, but even with thoughs problems, it was better than with crapy android 2.2.1.

If your update will come in a month, then wait, but if you have to wait a year, dont wait. Phones like HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy SIII, and Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7, will always updates, no mater how old, but others, just have to deal with the fact that they are not going to get updates after 1 year.

Stock Jelly bean, ICS, or gingerbread, is always better than Motoblur, HTC Sense, Samsung Touchwiz UI's. the phones have been screwed up by the customizations.


Here are some links to great Roms to check out if you are new.
Look up: "Phone Name Here" Roms

HTC ONE X+ is out!

So the new HTC one x +.
It has .2 GHz faster processor, so HTC is on top with 1.7 GHz quad core.
Its now black and gorgeous. It has a lot of other minor hardware tweaks. The camera has had major improvements and now double the storage and 50 percent more battery life. Sin e it comes with Android jellybean, it has sense 4+ ui instead of just sense 4. It now looks and feels more like stock jellybean.
Huh, I don't think the iPhone can beat that...ever...ever. that's good they can't, the faster they leave the world the better.
Go android and go HTC.
Check me out on google+

Lg thrive jellybean 4.1.1

Just some screen shots of a jb ROM on my lg thrive.

Fail of iOS 6

I read a lot about iOS 6 and found it to be not the usually brilliant update but a disaster. I'm here in English 101 and nothing to do. Maps do t work, update doesn't gives siri to iPhone 4 and lower, takes up 2gb. My jellybean ROM is only like 110 mb. Wow, my friend had an 8gb iPhone, what now. No maps, no siri...Hm...he was thinking about jail breaking it, I wish he did and he too.
-1 for iPhone.
Then the phone, simply stretched up, no thought, its not proportional.
-1 again.

Android "Phone Wars" Episode 4, (iphone5 included)

OK, i have not posted any phone wars lately, and I see if the iPhone 5 will get back on top of the game....or not?!

Tum, tum, tum!The

Anyway, today we have the iPhone 5, our current winner; Samsung Galaxy SIII, and The HTC Evo 4G.

Lets start with the iPhone.
Battery: Li-ON, but no info on how many mAh, but it does have 8 hours of talk time and 9.4 DAYS of standby time. Dang
It now has a total of 6 rows of icons, with the stretched up screen.
It has a 1.5 Ghz A6 processor which is assumed to be quad core.
It has the retina display, which is nothing new to the smartphone world, and the screen is made out of Gorilla glass. nice
It only has 3 sensors, accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensor.
So not THAT big of a change.

Now, lets leave the best for last, and talk about the HTC
The HTC is basically the basis for the iphone 5, it has just about the same specs other than you can have an sd card and get extra space. But the only problem is it has a basic tft captive screen.

And the samsung galaxy s 3
the only difference between the s3 and the iphone is the sensor and screen size.

iphone: battery, +1, proccesor +1, screen size +1
total: 3

HTC Evo 4G: Battery +, processor +1,
total: 2

Samsung S3: Screen: +2, Battery +1, Processor +1,
Total: 4

Well the samsung gets to stay up to on # 1.
here is the list

1. Samsung Galaxy s3
2. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
3. HTC One X
4. Motorola Droid Razr Maxx

5. HTC Evo 4G

Apple panicking while android waiting.

Most of you have heard about all these court cases of apple vs. samsung and htc. a year ago apple did not care but as you can see, they are starting to fight for survival.
Apple is pahicking and although on the stock market its doing just fine, it can feel the massive pressure not just from Google, but from the whole OHA (open handset alliance).
Googles android and the phones it runs on (offifially or not) continue to flood the global market and they are affordable and easy to get anywhere on the globe.
Apple has started to release its iPhone for all carriers ajd that kept it afloat. If it stuck with AT&T then it would not exist any more.
So as you can see, apple is panicking, sue everyone for anything. But we all forgot about windows phones. They just sit back relax, and watch the to giants kill eafh other then come in and save the world.

How to play tiny tower OFF LINE, no hacks or cheats.

Ok, a while ago, I posted a post about Mobage spying on android users through the internet only game Tiny Tower. Well now i figured out how to play this awsome game offline.

Don't worry, this is not illegal, and their are no hacks, or cheats or download necessary.

First, make sure you have the latest version of tiny tower.
You will have to do this process after each update.
Two: let the game load with internet connection. play the game, and go to menu>settings> make sure everything is checked off.
Three: press the home button (do this step really quickly), turn off your WiFi using the power widget, that is the fastest way to do so, and then turn the game back on.

**Make sure you don't exit the game, only press home to exit.

you are done!

Android "Phone Wars" episode 3

Well, I think all iphone 4s users are just waiting for me to post "Iphone 4s, best smartphone in the world", uh no, not yet. Maybe in 25 years, and I will tell you why.

Lets start with the Iphone. Many thought it was to come with a 1 GHz processor. But no, it was lowered down to .8 GHz, or 800 MHz. Why is that, well because the iphone's does not need so much speed because it is less functional than all androids and windows phone, which are starting to use 4 core 1.5 GHz processors. Then the screen, it is small. The shape, is terrible and uncomfortable. The battery life is the only advantage it has, and even that came at a cost, of lowering speed and voltage. The camera is fairly well. And you can get multiple storage sizes. Also the iPhone releases alot of radiation.

Then the Current winner, the Samsung galaxy nexus. 1.2 GHz Dual core processor. 5.0 MP camera, 4.65 inch screen super amoled display. 16-32 gigabytes of storage. A whole bunch of sensors that i will not list all over again now, read other posts. Upgradable to android 4.1

Now, the true competitor. The Samsung Galaxy SIII (3). 1.4 GHz 4 core processor. 8 mp, camera. 4.8 inch super AMOLED screen. You can get 16, 23, or 64 gb of storage in the phone built in. Has a way better battery, and all the same sensors. and it is built in with android 4.0.4

Well Lets ad up the points
Iphone 4s
1 point for camera, 1 point for storage, 1 point for battery.
Total: 3
Galaxy Nexus, 1 point for screen, 1 point for sensors, 1 point for speed, 1 point for storage, 1 point for android 4.1.
Total: 5
Galaxy S3
2 points for screen, 2 points for storage, 2 points for speed, 1 point for camera
Total: 7

Our new winner is the Samsung Galaxy S3

here is the list of phones on the ranking list

1. Samsung Galaxy s3
2. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
3. HTC One X
4. Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
5. HTC Rezound
6. Motorola Atrix 2
7. iPhone 4s

Android "Phone Wars" episode 2

Last time we talked about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Atrix 2 and the HTC Rezound. And today i will be talking about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Droid razr maxx, and the HTC One X.

Right off the back of your head you will say, MOTOROLA, well yes, the Motorola Droid razr maxx has a lightning fast dual core processor with a speed of 1.2 GHz, which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But it only comes with android 2.3 and is now update-able to android 4.0. Its biggest hit is battery life, it has a 3300 mAh Li-Ion batter that can last you 15.5 days on standby and 20+ hours of talk time. But it gives off the most radiation, compared to most phones. It gives off 1.45 W/kg of radiation, which will basically give you cancer really quick. it has a Super AMOLED screen and is equipped with the following sensors: (Accelerometer (motion sensor) / Proximity Sensor / Ambient Light Sensor). It has a 8.1 mega pixel camera that take hd video and pictures and has a 1.3 mega pixel camera on the front for video chat.

The Samsung is similar yet different to the Motorola droid razr maxx. it has a 5 mega pixel camera, 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery. but it wins out against the Motorola because it has 32 gb of storage rather than 12, and comes with android 4.0 and is upgradable to 4.1, has a 1.2 GHz processor. it gives off half the radiation and it has a gyroscopic sensor (stability sensor, it can tell in what position the phone is in) and a compass.

The HTC One X, the flagship phone for HTC. has a quad (4) core 1.5 ghz proccesor, comes with android 4.0, has a 8 mp camera, has 16 gb of storage capacity. it has the same sensors as the motorola. But you can not put in a micro SD card for extra space like the rest.

So, lets count the points

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
1 point for speed, 2 points for battery life, 1 point for Supper AMOLED screen, 1 point for camera. -1 for radiation
Total: 4

Samsung Galaxy Nexus
1 point for speed, 1 point for android 4.0, 1 point for sensors, 1 point for storage. 1 point for android 4.1

2 points for speed, 1 point for camera, 1 point for storage, 1 point for android 4., 1 point for battery life.

The HTC vs. The Samsung, which will it be. well the Samsung has more space, more sensors, better android version. Android 4.1 project butter compensates for the speed loss so the Samsung Galaxy nexus is not so slow. The Samsung wins this one gys.

So the List

1. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
2. HTC One X
3. Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
4. HTC Rezound
5. Motorola Atrix 2

( want to tell me something, have a phone to suggest to put on the list, disagree with something, post a comment here, you don't need to log in, it can just be anonymous.)

Episode 3 will include the new Samsung galaxy S3 vs the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the iPhone 4s. will the popular iPhone beat its biggest rival yet. Read in the next episode of Phone Wars.

Android "Phone Wars" episode 1

Well on this blog i decided to spice some things up a bit.

And i present to you, ta, ta-ta-taaa, Phone Wars!

Today's competitors are:
1. Motorola Atrix 2
2. HTC Rezound
3.Samsung Galaxy Nexus aka Google Nexus S

Well lets start by naming some of the key features of these phones, all of them have made outstanding progress in technology and i love all three of them, no really, for me it was really hard to announce the winner.

The Motorola Atrix 2 (successor to the Motorola Atrix 4g) comes with android 2.3 gingerbread on board and is just as fast as its father, the atrix 4g. it has a dual core 1ghz processor. it takes hd vidoe and pictures. it has a 4 inch screen and fits well in the persons hand, so it does not feel to big. and it has 8 gigabytes of storage, and is expandable by an sd card to what ever the largest sd card is. It is now upgradable to android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The HTC Rezound (ooooh, the name sends chills down my spine) is not the most well looking phone in the world but it does its job of being smart. it ahs a dual core 1.5 ghz processor! WoW! and it has a large screen, takes great pictures and video. It has a long lasting battery, and has lots of storage capacity, of about 16 gigabytes! It is now upgradable to android 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich.

The Google Nexus S (successor to the Google Nexus by HTC) is the flagship android phone that was the first to come with android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is upgradable to android 4.1 jellybean. It has a 1.2 ghz processor which is fast enough for anyone. it has a large screen of more than 4 inches. it has alot of storage capacity, and takes great pictures and videos.

All these phones seem to be the same, that is why i picked them.

The atrix gets 1 point for HD, and 1 point for storage.
total: 1 point

The Rezound gets 2 points for speed, 1 point for HD, and 1 point for storage.
Total: 4 Points

The Nexus S gets 1 point for speed, 1 point for HD, 1 point for storage, and 1 point for android jellybean.
Total:4 points

The Atrix is instantly out of the game. The rezound and nexus s have some competing to do. Well, the nexus does not have to be as fast because android jelly bean has project butter on board and their for compensates for the speed loss and jelly bean comes with lots of new changes too. Yes i know, the rezound is upgradable to 4.0, but its to late, 4.1 is out.their for, the Nexus S is our winner of todays episode of Phone Wars.

(If you don't agree, post a comment) (If you have a phone in mind to put on our list of competitors, post a comment i will gladly include any phone in the competition).

So here is the list so far of best phones:

1st place: Nexus S
2nd Place: HTC Rezound
3rd Place: Motorola Atrix 2

Spoiler, episode 2
Will the HTC One x put htc on top of the list. Will the droid razr maxx uphold its popularity and get on top. and will the Nexus S, stay as number one on the list.
