What Features Does The HTC HD 2 Have?

July 12, 2011 |

The most updated version of Internet Explorer Mobile is integrated for web browsing, which is sadly not the first and best option available. According to some users, the whole experience in IE is inferior to that from using other competitors, such as Opera. This particular program is not part of the pre-installed programs and it is advisable to download this program on your HD2.

The Opera browser manages to load pages smoothly, without any hang-ups as those occurring in IE Mobile. There is also a significant improvement in navigation and the pinch to zoom capability. And one more advantage to the Opera broswer is its ability to support multiple tabs with the same quality performance, something that the IE currently lacks.

One application which a lot of HD2 enjoy is the pre-installed Google Maps. Opening the maps and even zooming in specific areas is done quickly and smoothly. A-GPS … Read More

A Look Into The Sony Ericsson Xperia X8

June 9, 2011 |

The Sony Xperia X8 is considered as the Goldilocks of the Xperia range of smart phones.  The X10 is a little too big for some and the X10 Mini is a tad bit too small.  The X8, distributed exclusively by O2, hits just the right spot which is perfect for a lot of people.

The X8 is very similar to how the X10 Mini looks like. However one of its greatest advantages is the increasing size and resolution of the screen.  It was originally programmed to run on Android 1.6 but it was now upgraded to the 2.1 version.   This posed a little problem for some of its users as they feel that this is making the phone crash and freeze in the most unexpected moments.

The phone is saved by its excellent connectivity via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and 3.5mm audio jack.  You can watch videos and play music in its … Read More

A User Review of Smart Measure 1.0.7 for Android

December 26, 2010 |

Smart Measure is intended to help you get approximate measurements of the height and distance of an object. It triangulates measurements using your phone’s accelerometer and camera. It makes use of some standard geometric equations to come up with rough measurements of height and distance for whatever object you’re aiming at. The concept is very creative and innovative, and the creators certainly deserve much credit for that. It’s unfortuante that, even for an app intended to give only approximate measurements, the results tend to be pretty wildly inaccurate.

The first thing you need to do is to calibrate both your phone and the program, You can use the application settings of your phones’ accelerometer to to calibrate it, if you haven’t done so already. To properly calibrate the program, you’ll have to give a measurement of what height from the ground you’ll be holding it when taking measurements. You’ll need to be as accurate as … Read More

My iPhone Favorites Are Now My Current Favorites

December 13, 2010 |

Double tapping the Home button has been replaced with having to double tap the Home button to activate multi-tasking which are new features of the iOS 4. Previously, before this change was made and when the iOS3 was out you could use the double clicking the Home button to be customized to what you wanted attached to it. I used the Phone Favorites for mine. I know other people that used ones like iPod, Search or even the Camera page. But now with iOS 4 as your new addition, you won’t really have any say in the matter. It will bring up the Muti-tasking page whether you like it or not.  So your probably asking yourself since it IS a phone….. how can you access your Phone Favorites since you can’t do it from the Home button. First, you would launch the Phone application and then you would have to click on Favorites.  Even though … Read More

October 18, 2010 |

Image Credit: Gizmodo

Ease of use is the strength of the new Windows Mobile OS. With a screen filled with six square icons, you can go to the next block of six icons with a simple swipe. The initial screen has a black background with green and orange icons used to make a call, and an application area that integrates well with the Xbox, Zune media player, and Office.

The obvious weakness of touchscreen smartphones is, as usual, short battery life. Microsoft claims that it can run for two days with normal use. Although, it is not clarified yet, what is considered as “normal use”?

If with Android, you need to have a Gmail account to activate the phone, in Windows Phone 7 you can do the same with Hotmail. Compared with Symbian, Android or iPhone, the application management is very different. The integration is complete, but you won’t have the feeling of being … Read More
