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.

Android 4.1 JELLY BEAN!! Its finally here!!

Well, jelly bean is not the massive overhaul of android os we thought it was gona be. Its key features is increasing performance, and not the features.

The main thing that is new is SPEED. Most of the animations have been sped up and enhanced to make it more elegant but yet simple and fast. Also Google has incorporated "Project Butter", which obviously means to make it smooth as butter. Its all under the hood of the os and is not noticible in the UI. But it does speed things up.

The UI is changed not to much, the Notification drawer is improved. It doesnt just NOTIFY you anymore, it lets you know more than just the general thing, it gives you details.

And last but not least, Voice to Text, and Text to Voice, and Info to Voice. So its like google's version of siri, except its not called by a retarded name "siri" haha.

Yes, Finaly its here, and the LG Optimus One Group has started on making a port rom of it already and its only been out for a week or so. The project is named JB-One, in other words, jelly bean optimus one rom.


PS: dont try the beta of the rom i stated above, it bricks your phone a bit, just a semi brick with big consequences.
