Nokia X6 Review – High End XpressMusic Phone with 32GB Built-in Memory

nokia-x6-2Nokia X6 is the advanced Xseries phones from Nokia. So far, Nokia has been manufacturing music phones in the midrange line of phones. However, Nokia X6 is also the first XpressMusic phone that has high-end features. The phone has 3.2 inches capactive touchscreen display with a resolution of 360 x 480 pixels and supports 16 million colors. The clarity of the display is quite amazing and can viewed clearly under direct sunlight.

Above the display, you can find the secondary video call camera and below the display there are touch-sensitive buttons which includes a button each for menu, send and end. You can access the SIM card from the left side of the phone. However, if you want to remove the SIM card, you will have to open the back panel and take out the battery and then remove the SIM card from the side. On the other side of the phone, there is a camera shutter, a switch for locking the screen and volume controller.

At the top of the phone, you will find the 3.5mm audio jack, charger port, microUSB port and a power button. The smartphone, Nokia X6 comes with Symbian 9.4 S60 5th edition operating system and is quite similar to the one found on Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. The phone comes with a phone memory of 128MB. The onscreen QWERTY is very user-friendly and can be easily used for writing text messages and emails. Setting up an email is not a tough job on Nokia X6 as it has got an automated email setup feature.

The Nokia X6 does not support multitouch because of which you will have to make use of one finger to navigate on the web browser. Thenokia x6 lastbrowser allows you to zoom when you tap twice on the screen. You can also watch online videos on the phone has the browser is Flash enabled. The phone comes with a Facebook application that can used for meeting your social networking needs.

The 5-megapixel camera of Nokia X6 is equipped with Carls Zeiss Tessar optics and has dual LED flash. The image quality was not found to be that impressive; however the images contained enough details. IT can play a wide range of video files such as WMV, RV, 3GP and MP4 You can record videos at 30fps. You can even connect the phone to your television through the TV out cable.

The audio player allows you to download tons on to your phone. It is equipped with equalizer and can play files like MP3, WMA, WAV, RA, AAC, and M4A. You can listen to the stereo FM radio by connecting the headset, however what we did not understand is that why did Nokia manufacture the cheaper Nokia X3 with a radio that can be listened without connecting a headset. The audio quality is quite amazing and loudspeakers are also good.

The other features of the phone include proximity sensor, accelerometer, 32GB built-in memory, assisted GPS, Ovi Maps, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, Wi-Fi, 3G at 3.6Mbps HSDPA and last but not the least a powerful battery life of 420 hours (3G) on stand-by and 6 hours (3G) on talk time.

HTC Desire Review

htc-desire_1HTC Desire is one of the most desirable phones of HTC. However, it has an uncanny resemblance to Google Nexus One. HTC Desire is by far the most powerful Android phones HTC has manufactured till date. HTC Desire has metal framing around the display and the back is made up of plastic. Hence, it does not appear to be a sturdy phone. The memory card and SIM card are placed beneath the battery; hence, you are required to take out the battery in order to access the microSD and SIM card.

The phone weighs 135g and appears to be bulky as it has got a 3.7 inch display screen that makes use of AMOLED technology. The display of the phone was not clearly visible under direct sunlight. The capactive touchscreen display measure 3.7 inches and has a display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It also supports multi-touch. Below the display, you can find the standard Android buttons such as home screen, menu, back and search. Instead of the trackball, you can find an optical pad.

You can charge the HTC Desire through the standard microUSB port which is situated at the top side of the phone along with 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone comes with 4GB microSD card and you can expand the memory up to 32GB. The operating system present on the phone is Android 2.1 and runs the popular Sense interface. The phone performance is quite fast as it is powered with 1Ghz processor and 576MB RAM. It has a Li-Ion, 1400 mAh battery that offers 6.66 hours of talk time and 340 hours of stand-by time.

The 5 megapixel camera of the phone has many features like flash, LED, autofocus, smile detection, and geo tagging. The snaps are very clear and all the details can be clearly seen. You can record videos at 800 x 400 pixels at 26fps. You can also play a wide range of video files such as MPEG4, WMV, 3GP, 3G2 and audio files such as MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV, M4A (Apple lossless), AMR, OGG, and MIDI. However, it does not supports DivX and XviD video playback. You can also listen to stereo FM radio on the HTC Desire.htc-desire_2

HTC Desire has a Flash powered internet browser that loads pages quickly and you will be able to watch online videos and listen to audio files without any qualms. You can connect to the web via 3G at HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 2 Mbps and also through Wi-Fi.

Google Phone Debut – Google Nexus One

google-nexus-oneGoogle is all set to start the new year with a bang with its first smart phone release – Nexus One.

A full touch screen smartphone based on the Android OS, this phone is touted to be the iPhone killer (really? there has been too many ‘iPhone killers’, but none has lived up to expectations, so far).

No hardware specifications are available as yet, but it has been confirmed to be manufactured by HTC.

The unlocked Nexus One is said to be available straight from Google via http://www.google.com/phone (not live at time of posting, but keep a look out) at the price of US$530, and it is also available in US with a T-mobile plan.

Do you think this Google phone will live up to the hype? Do share your thoughts on it!

In the meanwhile, here are more pictures of the Google Nexus One…

BlackBerry Bold Review

blackberry-boldBlackBerry Bold has been a breakthrough product offering from BlackBerry being the first of its models to feature the 3G HSDPA. It has also been dubbed as the ‘faster’ cousin of all the other models in the BlackBerry family and much of this is due to the 624 MHz CPU processing that it offers. As a result, it combines faster operations along with having a tough built and the presence of some innovative features, making it the best-packaged smartphone on offer.

First Look: the phone has been given a stylish appearance but in a very subtle manner, something that most BlackBerrys promise but it is the smartest one among other models, having very well-defined outlines with a splendid aluminum lining and a leather-covered backside that seem to complement each other. The keyboard defines the approach that has been used to design this phone – big, simple and very functional. The keypads appear literally sculpted with the absence of any unwanted edginess or spacing between them. The display is bound to make an impression featuring a widescreen that has 480 x 320 pixels to offer, delivering unmatched text/image clarity and definition. The convenience factor has been augmented with the Quick Launcher that will make the on-screen launcher pop-up that this can be used for either playing the media player or for sending/typing messages along with the option of hopping over to the Home Screen or the Web Browser. Further, the Launcher remains functional across all kinds of phone applications and thus choosing and conducting another task, simultaneously becomes easier.

Delving further into other features on offer: BlackBerry Bold is among the rare market offerings in this segment that combine WiFi with GPS and this feature alone gives it a unique advantage. However, in both the options, the call quality is not compromised and the volume level for GSM connectivity is particularly appreciable. The standard BlackBerry feature of ‘push’ to email is offered but the mailing capacity has been extended and now ten email accounts can be simultaneously maintained. E-mailed attachments are now more convenient to download and view with the Data Viz Documents that is an indigenous BlackBerry technology. The camera offers just 2 Megapixels and this is something that could be improved but given the reasonable pricing, no real grudges can be held. The image capturing in low-lit conditions has been made easier with the LED flash settings that are very practical to operate. The installed ROM is an impressive 128 MB along with 1 GB of installed flash memory.

Conclusion: as the name suggests, the BlackBerry Bold tries to make things simple for the users, presenting everything in a slightly bigger, yet attractive manner and is loaded with some very useful features. It is not meant for the minimalists, but everyone else is sure to be impressed by its designing and the way in which every practical smartphone feature has neatly been packed-in.

Nokia N96 Review

nokia-n96Nokia N96 belongs to the premium and extremely coveted set of the Nokia N series.

The Nokia N96 is a wonderfully designed smart phone compatible with 3G networks. The most outstanding feature of the Nokia N96 has to go to its 16GB internal memory space for storage. With such storage capacity and options on your phone, you will almost never run of space (disclaimer: for an average user) to store your music and video.  However, if you ever run out of space, the microSD expansion slot supports up to an additional 8GB worth of data storage.

Features

Nokia N96’s 5 mega-pixel camera is replete with umpteen number of setting usually found in any digital camera, like the lens is auto focus and has auto exposure features coupled to it, dual LED flash provided brightens up the pictures in dark places. Nokia N96 has Bluetooth and assisted GPS for navigation and integrated Wi-Fi connectivity as well for internet addicts. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack for listening with standard headphones.

Nokia N96 is a smart phone based on the Symbian OS with 128 MB RAM installed. Nokia N96 has an external look like a candy bar and a dual slide arrangement analogous to its previous design, the Nokia N95 with added rounded edges and a smooth face. This smart 3G phone is 4.1 inches in length, 2.2 inches in width and bears a height of 0.7 inches. It weighs a comfortable 4.4 ounces, but it can get tad bit clumsy while accommodating it in pants due to its shape. Nokia N96 has a non-touch sensitive screen which has a very good resolution of 240×320, producing images off a mixture of 16 million colors .The screen has a dimension of 2.8 inches and auto adjusts itself to ambient conditions which makes it more readable and watchable than any other phone. Moreover the default themes and screens provided can be customized by the user that suits him or her.

nokia-n96-media-keysNavigation

Below the display Nokia N96 are the various navigation keys and few shortcuts like menu and clear button. More so there is a special multimedia key, where one touch will instantly take you to your music, video, and game files. However some users opine these buttons should have been slightly fanned out over the surface. The alphanumeric keypad provided can be accessed by pushing the screen upwards. The phone when used sidewise with its set of media keys changes the view to a much better landscape mode which increases the view area and size for various media files played.

Package & Conclusion

The package of a new Nokia N96 includes along with the phone has a travel charger, separate car charger, handset, software CD, reference user guide and video out cable. Although it cannot be considered a substantial upgrade over its parent model Nokia N95, the Nokia N96 remains a wonderful smart phone in its own right.
