SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8 WITH S-PEN AND QUAD-CORE 1.6 GHZ PROCESSOR: WELL ENOUGH TO COMPETE WITH IPAD MINI OR NOT ?






Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note 8  tablet with a stylus pen. Note 8 is 2.5 inches larger than the Note 2, which features a 5.5 inch screen and earned the title of "phablet".


SCREEN

Note 8 screen resolution is slightly higher than the iPad mini's, but lower than the resolution of Nexus 7. Within the eight-inch LCD panel, there  is a resolution of 1280x800 pixels, at a pixel density of 189 pixels-per-inch in comparison to iPad mini's 1024x768-pixel resolution and 163 pixels-per-inch ( Nexus 7 has 1280 x 800 resolution with 216 pixel per inch). The image quality and texts look sharper than Ipad Mini display but not as good as on Nexus 7.

HARDWARE
Inside the Galaxy Note 8, there is a Quad-Core Exynos 4412 Cortex A-9  processor running at 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM. Processor clock speed as well as ram seems to me better than Nexus 7 and Ipad Mini. This processor is also supported by  Mali-400MP GPU to help gamers in gaming.
DESIGN AND DIMENSIONS
Note 8 is nearly identical to the shape of Note 2, that means its entirely made up of plastic from the back and front. Note 8 measures 210 x 135.9 x 8mm and weighs 338 grams. These dimensions tell us the story that Note 8 is 2.5 mm thinner than Nexus 7 but it is .8mm thicker than Ipad Mini. In weight Note 8 is 26grams heavier than Ipad Mini which is a big difference for some users, but it is only 2grams lighter than Nexus 7 that doesn't matter.
INTERNAL STORAGE
Note 8 offers  32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with microSD cards up to 64GB in size, so here offcourse Note 2 again mitigates Ipad Mini and Nexus 7.
CAMERA
A five-megapixel camera sits on the rear of Note 8 , with a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front. These camera specs seems to me similar to Ipad Mini but it has an advantage over Nexus 7.
CONNECTIVITY
It features 3G with speeds up to 21Mbps, but unlike its main rival the Ipad Mini and Nexus 7, there is no 4G LTE configuration. A Wi-Fi-only version will also be available.

BATTERY

Note 8 is beefed with 4600 mAh battery which seems to me pretty fair in comparison to its rival Ipad Mini.


FINAL VERDICT
By looking at the specification of Note 8, one of the main benefits the screen will give its users is the Note's ability to multi-task, where two apps can be displayed on-screen at the same time like Note 2, with powerful processor clock speed of note 8. Micro Sd Card Slot makes Note 8 more attractive to users over Ipad Mini. There is no doubt that Note 8 will give a hard competition to Ipad Mini, but Apple is going to announce Ipad Mini 2 this year and let see how they reply to Sammy Note 8.
The Galaxy Note 8 will be released in the UK sometime around the spring,  there is no word about exact date and price. This crucial bit of information is missing for users. The new Galaxy Note has all the specs to make it an attractive alternative to the iPad mini, but without knowing cost one cannot make any judgments.

HTC ONE 4.7-inch 1080p Display, 1.7 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 600, Ultra Pixel Camera With Android 4.1.2 & Sense 5: Worth To Have It OR Go For Xperia Z Or Wait For S4 ?



SCREEN

Despite all the loss faced by HTC in 2012, HTC reinvent their phone in 2013 in the shape of HTC One. HTC One feature 4.7 inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display supporting 468 pixels per inch and protected by Gorilla Glass 2. There is no doubt HTC One is a best pixel per inch mobile you can have in the market leaving behind Sony Xperia Z and many more in race of smart phones screens.


HARDWARE

Htc One will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320. In comparison to Xperia Z which has the last-gen Snapdragon S4 Pro at 1.5 GHz, which is also quite powerful we are expecting that 600 chip in Htc One would be much better. HTC One is well-positioned by HTC to take a competitive advantage and try to be early mover in the market. The phone will launch with Android 4.1.2 and HTC Sense 5, but later on it will get Android 4.2.2 which is good sign of having this phone. We are skipping a software topic here because software will be judge better when we actually get our hands on phone in March.


DESIGN


HTC One is one of the finest phone designed by Htc in terms of looks and build quality. HTC has always paid attention to the appearance of its phones and HTC One is one of the fine example of this. The handset has two large speaker grills situated above and below the display, with contrasting colors between the metal unibody and the glass covering the screen. The handset is available in three colors: white, dark grey and red. The back side has been curved like other HTC devices, so it can be comfortably hold in one hand. By looking at the phone itself one can easily judge that this is a premium and high-quality build phone.


DIMENSIONS

HTC One measures 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3mm and it weighs 143 grams. Comparatively HTC One is longer than the height of Xperia Z that is quite surprising to me as Xperia Z has .3 inch bigger screen than HTC One (Xperia Z dimension are (131.6 x 69.3 x 9.8mm). On the other hand, One is .9 mm less wider than Xperia Z as well as it is .5mm thinner than Xperia Z. These dimensions tell us the story, if you build superior quality phones with bigger battery you end up with heavier and thickest phones.


INTERNAL STORAGE


In terms of internal memory HTC One offers 32 Giga Bytes and 64 Giga Bytes versions and unluckily like One X and One X+ there is no micro sd card slot to expand its memory that seems to me little bit frustrating factor for users and specially for those who want to carry lot of movies and songs into their mobiles. On the other hand, Xperia Z offers 16 Gigs on board storage plus we have an option to add micro sd card upto 32gb.


BATTERY


One of the things that you cannot forget to mention nowadays is the battery of the phones, and here i must have to say that HTC One comes up with fairly large 2300mAh battery when we take a size of this phone in to consideration. It is only 70 mAh lower than the power of Xperia Z but seems to me pretty fair when it compared to S3.


CAMERA


Now lot of people are little bit confused about the camera specification of this device as lot of people were expecting it to be featured with 13 megapixels camera instead of 4 mega pixels camera it actually offers. Now, this might seem like a low resolution to you, but you don’t have to worry to much about MP here. Why I am saying that you don’t have to worry about MP here because instead of increasing the megapixel count, HTC has decided to increase the megapixel size. Thanks to this, the camera sensor should be able to capture a lot more light, allowing you to take more detailed images, with less noise and better exposition. This helps Low-light photography should also be significantly better than what's possible with a conventional smartphone camera right now. HTC is introducing the term UltraPixel in HTC ONE. Basically, UltraPixel is a big pixel which captures up to 300% more light as compared to other leading smartphone cameras. It's in interesting fact that some of the best cameras currently, like those of the Iphone 5, S III and Lumia 920 have 1.4 micron pixels (the Xperia Z has 1.1 micron pixels). The HTC One, on the other hand, will sport 2 micron pixels, so basically they will be physically larger. It looks like the saying "less is more" is completely valid in this case. In addition, HTC has also introduced optical image stabilization (OIS) technology similar to the one in the Lumia 920. What OIS will do for you is to make all movement of the camera sensor smoother, resulting in a much more pleasant video recording. If you've compared video from the Lumia 920 with that of any other smartphone, you know what we're talking about. All in all, the camera of the HTC One looks really promising.


CONNECTIVITY


In terms of Connectivity  HTC One Offers: NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi with Wifi Hotspot, Consumer Infrared Remote Control, Hdmi cable Connectivity with special Hdmi lead and 3.5 mm Jack with Beats Audio Support.



FINAL VERDICT


HTC is trying to take a early mover competitive advantage by introducing HTC One in the market with brilliant mobile screen, powerful hardware and innovative design. However, to get sustainable competitive advantage, HTC must have to learn, how actually they can promote their product through advertising because they were always lazy in this sector and this could be one of the reason that led them to lower profits.  HTC One is their last hope to increase their market share in mobile industry and they should have to promote it heavily to get back in shape. In terms of Hardware, Screen and Build quality at some extent, HTC One can easily be recognised as a better phone in comparison to Xperia Z.  However, Xperia Z outclass HTC One in Durability, for example, it is Water Proof and Dust proof as well as it has micro sd card slot. These all things make Xperia Z a better phone than HTC One.  To conclude this review, i want to say that in the 1month or 2month of  time, Samsung is going to announce Samsung Galaxy S4 and there is no doubt and i hope they comeup with something really impressive to reply back HTC and Sony flasgships.

LG OPTIMUS G PRO 5.5 INCH 1080p DISPLAY, 1.7GHz QUAD- CORE PROCESSOR: WORTH TO BUY OR ITS WORTH TO WAIT FOR NOTE 3 ?





SCREEN

LG has now issued the full tech spec of its forthcoming Optimus G Pro, the latest 5.5″ True HD-IPS + LCD Android model will arrive with a 1920 x 1080 resolution 1080p display which supports 401 ppi (pixels per inch). This seems to us quite impressive as compared to its competitor Note 2. LG has made a smart effort in making the screen of this device edge to edge, so all the dimensions look proportioned.

HARDWARE

As well as that hefty screen the Optimus G Pro is quite well proportioned internally, running an impressive and powerful Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon clocked at 1.7GHz, alongside 2GB of RAM  and this all going to run on an Android 4.1.2 OS. Gpu is clocked at 320 with the help of Adreno and works perfectly fine for gaming. 

DIMENSIONS

This is a area where you may think that LG has made a wise step by giving LG Optimus Pro 5.5 edge to edge screen, LG has managed to decrease its dimension as well as its weight as compared to Note 2, but couldn’t able to manage the thickness of its phone. LG Optimus Pro G 5.5 measures 150 x 76 x 9.4mm and only weighs 160grams. Therefore, these measurements tell us that LG Optimus Pro G 5.5 is similar in the height, its width is 4.5mm squeezed and it is 20 grams lighter than Note 2.

INTERNAL STORAGE

Optimus Pro G has 32gb of internal memory in it with a micro sd card slot which will take upto 64gb of sd card (some areas might not get sd card slot).


BATTERY

LG Optimus Pro G has monster 3,140mAh removable / wireless charging capable battery which seems to me pretty impressive and similar to Note 2.

CAMERA

Optimus Pro G has 13mp Camera on the back with a LED Flash which is obviously up to the mark and on the front it has 2.1mp camera.

FINAL VERDICT

LG Optimus Pro seems to me a quite interesting phone but it lacks few of the things that Note has in it, for example there is no S- Pen capability in Optimus, it hasn’t got motion sensors that we have on Note 2. However, there is no doubt that it will give a serious competition to Note 2 because of its impressive hardware, camera and screen.
 Tell me in your comments what do you people think about Optimus G Pro 5.5, is it worth to have it or its better to wait for Note 3.
