Samsung and Sony chose the same night to introduce their new flagship smartphones to the highly competitive market.After so many years of development , smartphone market has become quite mature and frankly speaking,it’s very hard to see sparks from the new stuff. Let’s check out the appearance first.
5-inch 1080p Sharp / JDI OGS full lamination display
13MP rear and 8MP front Sony stacked CMOS camera
3080 mAh Lithium-ion polymer battery
Is it surprising you? Well, I know most people are not because we have seen the similar specs on several smartphones already, such as OnePlus One,Samsung Galaxy S5 and some other popular flagship products. In fact some manufactures have released the upgraded version of products which use Snapdragon 805 instead. Thus, this time Mi4 can’t entitle the name of “top performance Android phone” in the world though it still highlights the words in the official website.
However,as the price tag is still placed at RMB1999(16GB)/RMB2499(64GB),it’d be very competitive compared to those with similar performances from Samsung/HTC/LG.
Xiaomi,one of the fastest growing “mobile Internet company”,finally landed in Malaysia few months ago after having business in Singapore . Today they officially hold an event to introduce Mi3,the latest flagship smartphone from Xiaomi to Malaysians.
Mi3 has several top specifications in the current market: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8274AB(Quad core 2.3Ghz) CPU with Adreno 330 GPU,2GB RAM with 16GB flash memory,13Mpixel F2.2 28mm back camera & 2Mpixel front camera(both support 1080P video recording),5 inch IPS Retina display with 441PPI.About the network,it works with 2G & 3G(DC-HSPA+ up to 42Mbps) and 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz WiFi.The current OS is MIUI V5( customized on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean),but it’s developing on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat recently and should be available in a very short period.
Mi3 will start to sell at RM889 on the official website from 12PM 20 May 2014 and it will initiate only 4,000 units for the first batch.
So if you wanna get one , you’d better to prepare everything that Xiaomi recommends you to do first before it starts .Here’s the tips:
Motorola,a Google company now,just released Moto G – an Android phone to attack the entry smartphone market worldwide.
The phone is running with Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.2 Ghz CPU.The display is 4.5 inches 1280*720 HD at 329ppi. It has two cameras:the rear one is 5MP,supporting slow motion video and burst mode whilst the front one is 1.3MP. No Android 4.4 Kitkat at this moment,but I think it’s still okay with Android 4.3 . Bluetooth 4.0 is working on this phone;however,no 4G supported,only HSPA+ up to 21Mbps. The standard version has 8GB storage and 16GB version will be available too.
The 2070mah battery is bigger than the average and Motorola promises that Moto G could get “all day battery”,thanks to the software tweaks. Well,as an ex-Android users(I used to have Nexus One,Razr Maxx and GS3),none of them could last for more than 24 hours and so I might pay some doubt here.
Consumers always care about the price and I believe this is one of the biggest weapons of Moto G.The 8GB model only sells at US$179 and if adding another US$20,you could get 16GB model.
Of course,Moto knows that everybody wants to get a phone to fit one’s own lifestyle. 7 colors of shells can be chosen and you could have a better flip shell too. Continue reading Moto G
Chinese well-known ICT solution company HUAWEI released a new flagship smartphone in the fashion P series called “HUAWEI Asdend P6” in London yesterday.
In fact,it’s not so ‘fresh’ to many digital lovers because before the launch,a lot of leaked information were shown on different media.However,when the real phone showed at the launch,it still brought some attractions by its “elegance with edge” design-the 6.18mm thin metal body makes it to be the world’s slimmest smartphone up to date.
Huawei Asend P6 embeds a quad-core 1.5 Ghz K3V2E processor with 2GB RAM/8GB ROM,4.7 inch in-cell display,working on latest Android 4.2.2.
One of the biggest point of this smartphone is its front and rear cameras.The front camera is capable of 5MP with facial enhancement feature which is great for those selfies.The rear camera has a mainstream 8MP F/2.0 lens with IMAGESmart technology,enabling to Auto Scene Recognition and also 4cm Macro shooting.
