Everything You Need to Know About 4G

Verizon, Sprint, and  T-Mobile are all providing their subscribers 4G internet connectivity. When we used 3G internet connection on out phone, we felt that it is the fastest internet connectivity that one can avail on their smartphone. However, the 4G network has turned out to be even faster. So let us try to understand more about 4G.

What is 4G?
4G stands for fourth generation wireless. This technology enables you to do VOIP, internet browsing, play games and stream HD videos. Before 4G, 2G and 3G wireless were known to the people. 2G is all about switching from analog to digital transmissions. This technology brought to the world facilities like sending and receiving SMS and email on their phone. 3G technology brought features like global roaming, video calling, sharing the same data network with others and high speed web connectivity. The average speed that you can avail through 3G can range from 600 kilobytes per second to 1.4Megabytes per second. When you compare 3G with 4G, you will be able to achieve the same but with more speed and bandwidth.

According to ITU (International Telecommunication Union), 4G is fast paced internet connection that offers speeds of 100Mbps whichever place you go. This is high mobility for 4G. When it comes to low mobility which means Wi-Fi range, you can get up to 1Gbps speed. However, most of the cellular network service provider’s 4G speeds do not come any close.

Here are some of the technologies that are available in United States. You should be aware of it because these technologies are made available as 4G:

1. WiMax
WiMax is nothing but an extension of Wi-Fi connection which means it offers high speed wireless web connection on a wide range of devices. Sprint is offering this service as 4G which offers 128Mbps HDSPA and 56Mbps HSUPA.

2. LTE (Long Term Evolution)
This is the 4G service offered by Verizon which offers 100Mbps HDSPA and 50Mbps HSUPA. The LTE service cannot be actually called 4G but exclusively refers to 3GPP LTE. LTE Advanced which is yet to launch may meet the 4G standards by offering HSDPA of 1Gbps.

3. HSPA+ (Evolved High Speed Packet Access)
HSPA+ is the 4G service offered by T-Mobile. Sprint and Verizon offers the same service as 3G data. Even though HSPA+ offers high speed connectivity, the speed is much less as compared to LTE and WiMax as it offers 56Mbps HSUPA and 22Mbps HSDPA.

T-Mobile Comet Review

T-Mobile Comet is a new Android phone that is manufactured by the Chinese company called Huawei. The exterior of the phone is made up of plastic together with a metal like material. The phone appears simple and it measures 104.1 x 55.9 x 12.7 mm and weighs 102.1g. The phone is priced lower than the LG Optimus T.

The display screen of the T-Mobile Comet measures 2.8 inches and has a display resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The response of the capacitive touchscreen is good and it supports 256k colors. The display does not appear clear when viewed from angles and also you will have to shield the display with your hand to view it clearly under direct sunlight.

As expected, you can find the capacitive Android buttons below the display. There is a d-pad too that is placed right in the middle of the soft keys. On the top edge of the T-Mobile Comet, you can find the 3.5mm audio headset jack. The right side has n buttons whereas on the left you can find the volume controller. The microUSB port is located at the bottom side of the phone. Turning the phone over will greet you with the 3.2 megapixel camera along with the speaker phone.

The T-Mobile Comet runs on 528 MHz processor and is powered with Android v2.2. You will experience choppiness if you activate the live wallpaper feature of Android. You can synchronize your contacts with the contacts of Facebook and Twitter. The onscreen keyboard is very easy to use and also lets you do Swype mode of typing. Google Talk is the only IM client available on the phone. Documents To Go lets you access your office files and lastly the Telenav GPS navigation lets you access location based navigation service.

The shots taken through 3.2 megapixel camera are not appealing and the images appear blurry and lack details. The video recording is of poor quality. The music player of Android has plenty of functions and the sound output is quite loud. You can play low quality videos smoothly on this phone. The phone comes preloaded with 2GB microSD and you can replace it with a maximum of 32 GB of microSD.

The T-Mobile Comet lets you do high speed internet browsing through 3G and WLAN. The Android browser lacks Flash support but the overall browsing experience is quite good. The phone runs of 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery that gives a standby time of up to 288 hours and talk time of up to 9 hours.

BlackBerry Bold 9780 Review

BlackBerry Bold 9780 is the successor to the  RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 that was released last year. We were disappointed to know that the phone looks very identical to the predecessor phone. The phone measures 109 x 60 x 14 mm and weighs 122g.

The size of the TFT display is 2.44 inches and has a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels and supports 65m colors. The display is quite decent and viewing angles are also good. Users will not find it difficult to view the contents of the display outdoors. The portrait style QWERTY keyboard works flawlessly, however people with large fingers can face some problems initially. Between the display and the keyboard you can find the optical trackpad along with the physical buttons like Send, End, Menu and Back.

On the left side of the BlackBerry Bold 9780, you can find the left convenience button along with the microUSB slot and 3.5 mm audio headset jack. On the right, you can find the right convenience button and volume controller can be found. On the top, there is a mute button and display lock button. As compared to the 3.2 megapixel camera on Bold 9700, the Bold 9780 sports a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash.

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is the third RIM phone to run on the RIM plaform OS 6. The internal memory of the phone is 256MB and 512MB RAM. The phone runs on 624Mhz processor. The Social Feeds app lets you access social networking sites like Twitter, MySpace and Facebook. There are plenty of third party apps on the phone such as BlackBerry Maps for GPS navigation, YouTube, Sudoku, Blackberry Messenger and other chatting messengers like AIM, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, and Google Talk.

The 5 megapixel autofocus camera is capable of taking high quality images outdoors, however you will not be impressed with the images taken by the Bold 9780 indoors even though the flash tries its best to illuminate the scene. It can also record high definition videos at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels at 3 fps. The music player is visually impressive and has many items such as album cover, onscreen controls, song info, etc.

The WebKit browser lacks Flash but it renders pages quickly and the web pages appear the same way as they on a desktop. You can enjoy surfing the web at 3G speeds and also through Wi-Fi. The standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery gives a standby time of over 400 hours on 3G and talk time of up to 6 hours on 3G.

LG Sentio Review

LG Sentio is a cool candybar phone from T-Mobile that comes with large touchscreen, 3.0 megapixel camera, social networking apps and 3G internet connectivity.  LG has always been known for designing good looking phones and even LG Sentio is one such phone that has got futuristic design and sleek appearance. The phone measures 107 x 53 x 13mm and weighs only 94g. The resistive touchscreen measures 3.0 inches and is capable of displaying 262k colors at a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. While using the handset outdoors, you will have to shield the display from the sun so that you can view it clearly.

Below the display, there are three circular shaped buttons which includes the Call, Back and End keys.  On the left side of the phone, you can find the volume controller, Task Menu button and the charger port which can be also used for connecting headset.  On the right side of LG Sentio, you can find the camera button and display lock/unlock button. There is no microSD slot on this phone. To access the memory card, you will have to uncover the battery cover. There is no 3.5mm audio headset jack.

LG Sentio’s interface is the same old one that is found on other LG phones such as Prada and Viewty. It allows you to add widgets to the home screen. The landscape onscreen QWERTY keyboard is very user-friendly. You can setup email accounts and access your inbox various accounts easily. You can also get in touch with your buddies on AIM, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger. The TeleNav GPS Navigator does well in providing voice guided navigation.

The 3 megapixel camera takes amazing photos with accurate details but the color saturation is not perfect. You can record videos at QVGA resolution. The music player present on LG Sentio is nothing special and is capable of playing audio formats. The sound output through the loudspeaker is not very loud even when songs are played at the loudest volume. The video player can play videos without any performance glitches. The internal memory of the phone is 80MB and the external memory can detect up to 16GB of microSD.

You can connect to the internet through 3G and WLAN.  The web browser loads web pages exactly the same way you would see on a computer. The standard Li-Ion 900 mAh battery gives a talk time of 6 hours and standby time of over 350 hours.

Samsung Vibrant Review

Recently, T-Mobile introduced the new Android phone from Samsung named Samsung Vibrant T959. If you look at this phone carefully, you will come to realize that the design is exactly same as the one found on Galaxy S 19000. The phone measures 122.4 x 64.5 x 9.9m and weighs only 117.9g.  The phone is very comfortable to hold and construction-wise it appears to be very durable.  It has got a 4 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display and is capable of displaying 16m colors at a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The display is quite bright and you will be able to understand what’s on the screen when you view it under direct sunlight.

There are four touch sensitive buttons below the display. The Samsung Vibrant has got few physical buttons. The volume controller and power button are present on the sides of the phone. On the top side of the phone, you can find 3.5 mm audio headset and microUSB port. At the rear, there is a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera and speakers. Uncovering the back cover will give you access to the battery, SIM card slot and memory card slot.

Samsung Vibrant is powered with 1Ghz Hummingbird processor which boosts the performance of the phone. The internal memory of the phone is 16GB with 512MB RAM and the external memory can detect up to 32GB. The phone comes with 2GB microSD card. You can find the TouchWiz 3.0 overlaid on top of Android 2.1 which allows you to choose from seven homescreens that can be filled with Android widgets. There are plenty of apps on the phone namely Layar, MobiTV, Amazon’s Kindle, YouTube, Google Talk and social networking apps.

It was quite disappointing to know that the Samsung Vibrant could snap mediocre quality snaps. Since the camera lacks flash, snaps taken indoors lacked details. You can capture videos at resolution of 720p @30fps. It has got one of the best music player apps. The app has got tabs which will help in sorting songs by artist, album, playlist and all. It allows you to share songs through email and Bluetooth. It also displays album art and visualizations. The 5.1 channel surround effect enabled earphones gives a very good sound output.

You can perform data transfer on Samsung Vibrant through v3.0 with A2DP Bluetooth and v2.0 microUSB. You can connect to the web through 3G through HSDPA and HSUPA and also through WLAN. The default browser is Flash enabled and has got many features like multi-touch support, precision zooming, window management, bookmarking and many more. Some other features of the phone include stereo FM with RDS digital compass and assisted GPS. The standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery gives a stand-by time of 432hours and talk time of over 6 hours.

Samsung Gravity 3 Review

T-Mobile brings the refreshingly new Samsung Gravity 3 to the cell phone arena. It measures 116.8 x 53.6 x 15.2 mm and weighs 123g. The phone looks very cute and the body appears to be very durable. The build quality is good and it feels very comfortable to hold this phone.

Samsung Gravity 3 has got a QVGA display which is capable of displaying 262k colors at a display resolution of 240 x 300 pixels. On the right side of the phone, you can find the microUSB port and a camera launcher button. On the left side of the phone, you can find the volume rocker. In order to access the microSD slot, you will have to uncover the battery cover. The 2 megapixel camera is located at the rear with a single speaker.

Sliding the display of the Samsung Gravity 3 reveals the QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is the same that is found on the Gravity T. The keys are well spaced but only after you make use of the QWERTY many times you will be able to type without making any error. The internal memory of the phone is 70MB and the external memory can be expanded up to 16GB. The phone functions very smoothly thanks to its 184 MHz processor. Data transfer can be performed with v2.1 Bluetooth and microUSB.

The good old TouchWiz UI of Samsung also functions flawlessly. You can also access your mails on this phone as it includes Exchange support. The T-Mobile Social Buzz application lets you access social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. The Samsung Gravity 3 does not have a music player and you will have to browse to your memory card folder where music tracks are present to listen to music. Sadly, there is no headphone jack present on the phone. From this we can understand that this phone is definitely not a music device.

The 2 megapixel camera snaps decent images. Since there is no flash present for camera on this phone, the images taken in low lighting conditions are of poor quality. You can only perform QCIF recording on this phone. Browsing can be done at 3G speed. However, the browser is very simple and is good enough to view mobile pages. The assisted GPS feature can be used with Google Maps application. The standard Li-Ion 1000 mAh battery gives a stand-by time of up to 400 hours and a talk time of up to 6 hours.

Sony Ericsson Equinox Review

PiczoomSony Ericsson Equinox TM717 is a stylish flip phone with basic features and is available with T-Mobile’s 3G network. The phone looks very appealing and if you are someone who loves flip phone, you should go through the features of this phone.

The display of the phone measures 2.2 inches with a display resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The display is very clear and everything on the screen appears to be bright and sharp. However, you may not find the same clarity when viewed under direct sunlight. The phone’s spring mechanism is perfect and you can easily open the phone when you get a call.

The phone has a very light weight of 3.5 ounces. The internal memory of the phone is 100MB and you can expand the external memory up to 16GB. The keypad has been kept simple and you will not find any problems in typing message or dialing the contact numbers.
T-Mobile-Sony-Ericsson-Equinox-Clamshell-PhoneWhen you close the phone, the outer part of the phone will show you the time, battery life status, and network coverage info. When you get any call or message, the contact’s name and number will flash on the small monochrome display on the outer shell of the phone. It comes with 3.5mm audio port, a charger port, and a USB connection port. At the rear of the phone you can find the 3.2 megapixel camera with digital zoom and geo tagging. The photos taken through the camera is quite good. However, when it comes to recording videos, the quality is not good because it does not have a high mic and hence, it does not record sound well. You can upload the recorded videos on YouTube, sent through email, or transferred to computers.

There is no special music software on Sony Ericsson Equinox and has a very simple music player with limited features. The clarity of the audio output is impressive. You can easily connect the phone to your computer via USB cord and you will be able to transfer songs in MP3,WMA, M4A, AAC format to your phone. The phone also comes with a stereo FM radio with RDS.

Sony Ericsson Equinox supports 3G at 3.6HSPDPA. Other than using USB, you can also make use of Bluetooth for data transfer. The Li-Polymer, 920mAh battery of the phone gives a talk time of 10 hours and stand-by time of 384 hours.
