Samsung Intercept Review

Samsung Intercept is a Sprint carrier with the Android OS. Sprint had released 3 other Android phones in the recent past – Samsung Moment, HTC Hero and HTC EVO 4G. These smartphones were premium devices. However, the Samsung Intercept is a mid-range phone. It feels good to hold this phone as it weighs only 139g and measures 113 x 56 x 15 mm. The TFT touchscreen display of the phone measures 3.2 inches and has a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and is capable of displaying 65k colors. It has also got accelerometer feature for automatically rotating the phone when you hold it horizontally or vertically.

Below the display of the Samsung Intercept are present four capactive keys. There is an optical joystick as well as send and end physical buttons. On the right side of the phone, you 3.5mm audio jack and the camera key whereas the on the left side you can find the volume controller and the microSD sot. The microUSB charging port is located at the top. The 3.2 megapixel camera is located at the rear. At the bottom, you can find the speaker.

When you slide the display of the phone in a horizontal manner, you will be able to make use of the four-row QWERTY keyboard.  The size of the keys is big enough and is very user-friendly. The phone runs on 800Mhz processor but we noticed lagged many times during the usage. The Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 is powered with Android 2.1 and its notification drawer gives you quick access to WLAN, Bluetooth, Silent and Vibrate mode. The phonebook allows you to integrate contacts with famous social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Other apps present on the phone include document viewer, YouTube, barcode scanner, Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, etc.

The phone supports playback of XviD files but failed to play DivX files. The music player is nothing special and the sound through the loudspeaker and earphone is okay. The 3.2 megapixel camera without flash fails to take good images in the low lighting conditions. However, when there is good light, the images are bright and clear. The Dolphin Browser HD present on Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 is a full-featured browser and is very easy to use.  You can connect to the web on 3G Rev.0 which gives a speed of 153.2kbps. The stand-by time of the standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery is up to 300 hours and it gives a talk time of over 5 hours.

HTC Aria Review

HTC Aria is an Android powered AT&T phone. The phone is available at a low price with a 2 year contract. Moreover, this smart phone has got plenty of features. If you are a fan of HTC phones, the moment you hold the HTC Aria you will realize that the phone looks quite similar to HTC HD mini. The HTC Aria measures 4.6 x 2.3 x 0.47 inches and weighs 107.7g. The HTC Aria has a display that measures 3.2inches and has got features like accelerometer sensor, proximity sensor, touch-sensitive buttons (Home, Menu, Back and Search) and Optical trackpad. It is a capacitive TFT touchscreen that is capable of displaying 256k colors at a display resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The display was found to be barely usable in direct sunlight.

On the left side of the Phone, you can find the volume controller and at the top there is power button through which the phone can be hibernated. Slightly on the left of the power button, you will find the 3.5mm stereo headset jack. At the bottom, you can find the mic and the USB connector. The phone has got an internal memory of 384MB and comes with a 2GB microSD. You can also expand the external memory up to 32GB. The Android OS v2.1 Éclair is powered with Qualcomm MSM 7227 600Mhz processor. We did not experience any lag whatsoever while using this phone.

The HTC Sense UI together with Android provides you with a choice of choosing 7 home screens on the HTC Aria. You can load your favorite apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders on the home screen. Android lets you access your Gmail account easily just by entering your email address and password. You can also set up Exchange ActiveSync and POP3/IMAP accounts. There is a document viewer that lets you view your office docs like Word and Excel. You can install your favorite apps by downloading them through the Android Market.

The sound output through the stereo headset was found to be okay. The Sense Music App has been developed well and has got features like album art and equalizer. It can play 3GP, MP4 and streamed content without any performance glitches. The 5 megapixel camera lacks flash which made the phone take nice looking snaps only when there were right lighting conditions. HTC Aria can record videos at 640 x 480 pixels at 28fps.

You can connect to the web at 3G speeds of 7.2Mbps HSDPA and also through Wi-Fi. The Flash enabled browser has plenty of features, hence it is considered to be the second best browser in the cell phone arena. With AT&T Navigator app ($9.99 per month) on the phone, you can make the full use of assisted GPS feature of HTC Aria. We recommend you to use Google Maps as it has got same features for free. Some other features of the phone include Bluetooth and stereo FM radio with RDS. The standard Li-ion 1200 mAh battery gives a stand-by time of 372 hours and talk time of 6 hours.

LG Ally Review – Android Phone with Cool Features

Powered by Verizon, LG Ally is the new Android phone that has got cool features and is often compared with other Android phones like HTC DROID ERIS and Motorola DEVOUR. Like Motorola DEVOUR, the LG Ally is a slider phone. The overall design of the LG Ally VS740 is not the best and it just looks any other large screen display phone. It has got rounded corners and it measures 4.56 x 2.22 x 0.62 inches. The phone is slightly on a bulky side as it weighs 158g. The phone’s body is made up of plastic and appears to be quite durable.

The capactive touchscreen of the LG Ally measures 3.2 inches. It is a WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and is capable of displaying 262k colors. The display of the HTC DROID ERIS and Motorola DEVOUR are of similar size but has less resolution. Images and text appear crisp and clear but becomes unclear when you view it under direct sunlight. Below the display screen, you can find two touch-sensitive buttons meant for back and search and also you can find four physical buttons meant for send, home, menu and end/screen lock/power. Above the display, there is a small notification light that displays different colors for notifying new message, call alerts, low battery, and charging.

On the right side of the LG Ally VS740, you can find the camera shutter and microSD slot whereas on the left you can access the volume controller and microUSB slot. The 3.5mm audio jack can be found on the top. At the rear is located the 3.2MP camera with LED flash. Slide the display horizontally and you will be able to see the 4-row QWERTY keyboard which is very easy to use for writing text messages and emails.

Even the navigational d-pad located at the right side of the keyboard responds well. Since LG Ally runs on Android 2.1, the phone’s performance is quite good and it provides the user to choose from 5 home screens. The Live Wallpapers feature automatically changes the wallpaper depending on the time of the day, the songs that you are listening and by touching the display. The voice command app gives accurate result when you make search by saying a search query. The usual Verizon apps can also be found on the LG Ally VS740.

The 3.2 megapixel camera with Flash has got plenty of features like autofocus, scene mode, geo location, etc. The images appear rich but are not the best. It allows you to record videos at 25fps with a resolution of 640 x 800 pixels. The 3D overhaul automatically sorts image and video files according to location and date. The video player can play DivX and Xvid video formats. The music player has features like cover art, displays song info but lacks equalizer. The sound output through the earphone and loud speaker is average.

For aGPS, you can make use of Google Maps. You can surf on the web at 3G speed and Wi-Fi. The Webkit web browser is very user-friendly; however, it lacks Flash. You can access your Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files through ThinkFree Office application. The internal memory of the LG Ally VS740 is 256MB and can read up to 32GB of microSD. The Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery gives a talk time of over 7.5 hours and stand-by time of nearly 500 hours.

Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Review – 4 inch Display and Plays HD Videos

Samsung Galaxy S i9000 is very attractive phone with the largest Super AMOLED display across any cell phone brand. The phone is quite slim and has fully loaded with features. The body of this beautiful phone is made up of plastic just like all the Samsung Omnia phones. The only problem with the plastic is that it attracts fingerprints easily.

The most powerful feature of the phone is the 4 inch Super AMOLED display. The display is so brilliant that you will not find any problems in viewing it under direct sunlight. The display resolution of the huge capactive touchscreen display is 480 x 800 pixels and supports multi-touch input and swype text input. Apart from that the display also has features like touch-sensitive controls, accelerometer and proximity sensor.Below the display of the Android v2.1 powered phone, you can find the three touch-sensitive buttons for accessing menu, back, and call receive button. When you press the menu button for long time, it will launch the search application. The power button and the screen lock button are placed on the top right side corner. On the left side of the phone, you can find the volume controller. Even though the phone has a 5 megapixel camera, it does not have dedicated button to launch it. At the bottom, there is a mouthpiece and on the top, you can find microUSB port and 3.5mm audio headset jack.

At the rear, you can find the 5 megapixel camera that comes without a flash but has features like autofocus, touch focus, smile detection, geotagging and is capable of recording HD videos. The images that were taken outside were found to be very impressive; however the lack of flash resulted in low-quality images when snaps were taken inside the room. The loudspeaker is located near the camera.

The Android 2.1 operating system functions quite well even though it is combined with TouchWiz UI of Samsung. You will simply love watching 720p videos on Samsung Galaxy S i900. It supports XVID and DIV video formats apart from other famous video formats. The Swype mode of typing lets you type by sweeping your stylus or finger across the on-screen QWERTY keyboard. The sound through the loudspeaker is feeble, however it sounds superb through the earphones.

You can get connected to the web at speeds of 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 5.76Mbps HSUPA on 3G as well as on WLAN. The Samsung Galaxy S i900 also brings to you v3.0 Bluetooth with A2DP. You can listen to stereo FM radio with RDS. The only issue we have with this phone is that even though it has an impressive display, it lacks a very important feature – GPS (Correct: It has GPS, along with A-GPS support. Thanks Android Enthu!). As far as battery life is concerned, the 1500mAh battery gives 576 hours of stand-by time on 3G and over 6b hours of talk time on 3G.

HTC Droid Incredible Review – Incredible Desire

The HTC Droid Incredible is an Android phone that has been made available through Verizon Wireless. The long awaited Droid Incredible was expected to look good, however we came to realize that there is nothing remarkable about the looks of the phone. We expected the phone to have some sort of futuristic appeal; however the phone looks quite mundane. When you hold the phone in your hand, you will realize that the quality of construction is nothing special. The phone weighs only 130 grams and measures 4.63 x 2.30 x 0.47 inches.

Many people who have made use of this phone feel that the phone is very similar to HTC Desire. The AMOLED capactive touchscreen display is able to display 16M colors at 480 x 800 pixels.

The power button is located at the top and on the right you can find the volume controller. At the top, you will find a 3.5mm audio headset jack. The microUSB is located on the left side of the phone. At the rear, you can find the 8 megapixel camera provided with LED dual flash.

The best part about HTC Droid Incredible is that it comes with the latest version of the Sense user interface which runs on top of the Android 2.1 OS. Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz processor, the phone functions incredibly quickly. The internal memory of the phone is 8GB and is provided with an external memory that can detect up to 16GB of microSD.
