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. If you want to search and download any application for your HTC Desire, you can quickly connect to the Android Market. Google Maps comes pre-loaded on the phone and it can be used for GPS. You can make use of Bluetooth v2.1 A2DP for data transfer.

All in all, the HTC Desire has got loads of features and hence we consider to be one of the impressive Android phones  in the market.

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…

LG Venus Review

lg-venusThe Venus from LG is another touch screen phone offering. However, this one has a dual touch sensitive screen (similar to the Samsung Soul) for maximum ease of use and of course, to help impress your friends!

The main screen is an ordinary TFT screen with a nice 262k colors and a resolution of 320×240. This is accompanied by what LG have name their ‘InteractPadTM‘ which is a contextual touch screen interface with a resolution of 240×176. The InteractPad is the main means of navigating the phone and, as it is contextual, the options change depending on what you’re trying to do. For example, if you’re listening to music then Play, Pause, Fast Forward et cetera keys will display, and if you’re navigating menus you’ll simply get Up, Down and OK.

lg-venus-slideThe LG Venus, whilst having everything you need in its touch screen and TFT section, also has a slide our numerical keypad. This is because LG found that people enjoy touch screens, but found it hard to text on them, so they are offering a bit of both worlds.

Perhaps because it has a quite unique dual screen, the operating system offered has to be unique to the phone. As such, you don’t get the ability to extended functionality in comparison to a phone running a Symbian  Windows Mobile operating system, but it does support Java so you should be able to find a nice range of applications to do the work you need. Bundled with the phone are built in hands free software, video and photo albums, and voice memo ability – not bad, but perhaps not the most feature-rich phone on the market either.

The LG Venus supports 3G, but doesn’t have Wi-Fi connectivity. Battery shouldn’t be a concern as the phone boasts a very respectable 20 days of standby time, but can only manage 4 hours of talk time.

lg-venus-backUnfortunately, the camera is pretty featureless – 2.0MP, with no autofocus, flash, and no zoom (either optical or digital), but can record videos. Photos are taken at a 1600×1200 resolution.

The audio player on the phone supports the formats you’d expect it to; AAC, eAAC, and MP3 – not hugely diverse but there’s enough options to choose from. Videos can be played back in the popular MPEG4 format. Whatever memory format you choose, the 64Mb will only fit a few songs – luckily this can be expanded by the use of a MicroSD card up to a size of 2GB.

All in all, this phone seems to be one that focuses on style and ease of use rather than good hardware, and there are plenty of phones out there with much more to offer. But, for its price, it seems that you can’t go too far wrong with an LG Venus.

LG Versa Review

lg-versa

Catering to various needs, the LG Versa probably got it’s name from the word, versatile.  It can be configured as a standard phone not unlike the LG Dare, or as a horizontal flip phone messaging device with the main selling point, the add on keyboard, which also doubles as a case to protect the phone and it’s screen.

LG Versa is long and narrow, measuring 4 1/8″ by 2″and 0.5″ thick.  The LCD display is a three inch touch screen with a 480 by 240 resolution and 18-bit color depth. As with most phones, it is hard to see in direct sunlight, but this baby does a pretty good job. The touch screen seems to be more effective than previous phone models, and responds quite easily without applying pressure.

One of the most powerful cell phone messaging devices, LG Versa can be transformed with the detachable add on QWERTY hardware keyboard, this is great for business users as it is one of the few devices where you can have a lightweight but feature rich cell phone, and convert it at any moment to a full fledged messaging phone. With a total of fifty keys and easy navigation, you should have no trouble getting used to this phone and doing everything you could possibly need to do. There are many improvements with the LG Versa, the menus have been streamlined, the finger scrolling has been improved, bluetooth is included. Keep in mind this is a cell phone, not a business smart phone, however it seems to be that they are starting to bridge that gap a little bit.

The Versa boasts a full HTML browser with Flash Lite support, EV-DO, GPS, a 2.0-megapixel camera, and a music player. With 290 minutes of talk time, and 430 hours of standby time, this phone should keep you going all day long without any issues.

Tips for Your HTC Tilt

htc-tilt-1This snappy little phone has a screen that slides and adjusts to access the QWERTY keyboard and is the better built model for this category of phone.  However most technophiles do not want to stick with the traditional configured phone, it is just like our desktops and laptops.  We want customization.  Here are some tips and tricks to make the HTC Tilt be the phone that you want and need.  Let it be said that some or modification will void your warranty, so beware!

The first thing most of us want to do is get rid of the annoying trialware that came with the phone.  Most users are experienced phone and PC users and know what they want and do not want give up precious memory for applications that they will never use.  A hard reset, followed by a soft rest, should get rid of vendor specific garbage that you do not want.  To do the hard reset (Start > Settings > Systems > Clear Storage). Then using the stylus to push the small reset button, that is located between the microSD slot and USB port for 3 seconds, will allow the HTC Tilt to do a soft reset and you are done.

You can download skins and different styles of ‘Today screens’ for the HTC Tilt which may or may not cost a few extra dollars.  However; hard-core technophiles will want to look way under the hood and tweak until they are satisfied.  Like the traditional PC, the place to go for these customizations is the registry.  For some this can be scary and for those that are not familiar with a registry messing with these settings can lead not only frustration but a useless, yet expensive electronic.  The KaiserTweak is a downloadable application that makes this task a little less daunting.

For those that like the look and are more comfortable with a Windows XP experience, a great downloaded application called WisBar Advance 3 will get you what you are looking for.  It is a Windows product but does it include Internet Sharing? The answer is yes, you just have to dig for it.  If you removed the preloaded software, just go to Start > Programs.  If you choose to keep the factory as-is appearance, then go to Start > Programs > Tools > File Explorer > Windows folder and just tap the icon and move it to your desired location.

In addition, if you are uncomfortable with the default browser, we would recommend Opera Mini and Bolt Browser. Moreover, browsers like Bolt have been tested to perform much faster than competing browsers.

The HTC Tilt will allow you to listen to music, watch videos, YouTube and is a true entertainment device on its own. So do not forget to get a Mini USB to 3.5 Audio Jack adapter to enhance the enjoyment with your favourite earphones!
