SO the tech world is growing with an enormous speed. Many gadgets are released everyday and believe me some of them are really good (like the SGS3) and some of them really bad which are made good with good advertisements. So the biggest question today is which smart phone to buy? I mean there are hundreds of smartphones available in the market and its very very confusing which one to buy? So i will be explaining you in this guide which smart phone should you buy in the specified category for people living in india.
So the guide will have three parts, first the phones for the geeks, then according to the price and according to the ease of use.
For the geeks:
So for those who don’t know the meaning of “geek”, well they are the kind of person who are in love with tech (ya me too).They like to own every new gadget (duh!) and need everything perfect when it comes to tech.
So here is the list for the smartphones for the geeks:
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- Samsung Galaxy Note
- iPhone 4S
- HTC ONE X
So the next-gen smartphone of the galaxy series has been recently launched by Samsung in their unpacked event in london. Samsung has somewhat humanized this phone and they so they add a small tag saying “Designed for Humans”. Samsung has indeed included many smart features which make the phone really really appealing and impressive.
It rocked the market as there were 9 MILLION pre orders for the smart phone and it was really tough to find it ind the market as it was most of the time out of stock.
So i will be skipping the specs and just showing you the summary of the specs. (cmon you guys are geeks.)
Samsung Galaxy Note:
So the Samsung galaxy note is another great smart phone released by Samsung last year. This smart phone created a new category, a category between a tablet and a smartphone. It is a great innovation and great leap by Samsung and the introduction of the s-pen with more features rocked the market. Many hated it and many loved it.
SO here are the specs:
So the new player in the apple’s great iPhone series is the iPhone 4S. It was identical in look to the iPhone 4 (well almost) but apple did many upgrades to the hardware. Many apple fans were disappointed by not seeing the iPhone 5 coming out but still they were happy with the iPhone 4. Siri a great killer feature in the iPhone 4S was also a great innovation, but the high price made it a blunder in India.
So here are the specs in comparison to the iPhone 4:
HTC One X:
So HTC was a bit aggressive this year releasing many smartphones to its One series and HTC ONE X was one of them. It was the first smart phone to have a quad-core NVIDIA tegra 3 processor and was loved by most of the people (except apple fanboys of course).
It had a couple of disadvantages like no micro sd card support and inaccessible battery but still it gave a good competition to the other smart phones.
With the amazing HTC’s sense UI it is still a very good smart phone.
So the iPhone 4S and the Galaxy note get kicked out due to lack of strong hardware and other specs but they are great innovations. So the competition is now between the Galaxy S3 and the htc one x.
Both the smartphones are really great but the lack of micro sd card support, no 4G and inaccessible battery the htc one x stays behind. The htc one x has a great ui which beats Samsung’s Touch wiz ui but still due to the smart features included in the galaxy s3, the s3 maintains a big margin with the htc one x .
So the galaxy s3 wins the smart phone battle and beats all the other phones. So for the geeks it’s definitely a very good choice but still if you have one of the other phones don’t be sad cuz they are too great innovations.
Phones with ease of use and Compactness:
So for those, SPECIALLY those who don’t want to carry around the bulky somewhat geeky smartphones i have made a list of the top compact easy to use smartphones which are good for starters.
So here is the list:
- Nokia Lumia 800
- Sony Xperia U
- Samsung Wave 3
Nokia Lumia 800:
So a great leap by nokia to save their sinking ship was indeed pretty successful. The new smartphone was indeed and is still loved by people.
So why should you buy this smartphone. Firstly its loaded with the microsoft windows 7.5 mango OS which is a pleasure to use. The beautiful user interface and the ease of use should impress every person that holds this smartphone(i was one of them). Available in glossy pink, blue and black colors it is a good smartphone for both boys and girls.
It does not have a big screen size like the big end smartphones and hence it easily fits into your pocket. It has a bit of disadvantages like the inaccessible battery and NO SD-CARD slot. But still is a good smartphone for starters.
Talking about the other features, it has 1 ghz processor, 512 mb of ram and a amoled screen.
Here is the summary of the features:
Sony Xperia U:
So new to the “sony” smartphone series without the long sony ericson xperia bla bla! this series of smartphones was indeed a smart move by sony. It will not be wrong to say that these were one of the most sexiest smartphones available in the market.
Concentrating on both, smartphones for both boys and girls sony made available some cool, funky accessories too.
So why should you buy this phone? So firstly and fore mostly the phone is highly compact. THe smartphone is great look wise. It has a dual core processor(which is pretty good!) 512 mb of ram and NO-SD CARD slot so you have to stick with 8 gb of storage as long as you own the phone. The sony bravia engine makes the screen look beautiful and the great audio quality is also joy to listen.
Still with a few disadvantages this phone is still recommended for starters.
Here’s the summary of the features.
