Review Google Moto X


Review Google Moto X

I happen to read about this and I was super excited. For all those who think that Android from Samsung is best option but is too common while other tier 1 android phone sellers are not so exciting - here is your pick.
Yeah, surely, nothing wrong in HTC and Sony. Personally, I love the look of Sony Xperia Z while HTC One is super cool. Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy tab 2 are market leaders for pretty good reasons too.
But Moto X just seems like something else altogether.

Let me start with the specifications as per the internet

Screen is 4.7-inch with 316 pixels per inch, and offers 720p video,

1.7Ghz snapdragon processor (whoa... whats new in this... WAIT FOR IT).

It also has Adreno 320 GPU, a natural language processor and a contextual computing processor.
While the first two are standard features in all smartphones, the remaining two are exclusive to Motorola and help create a better user experience by processing information better.

Strong points:
Highly customizable design with endless options built for maximum comfort.
Google allows personal signature on back panel along with colour combination choice and camera ring & back panel color choice from a big range of colors.

Speedy camera - faster than others as claimed by Google. 10MP camera with ClearPixel technology.
This new technology allows 75% more light to enter, thus producing better low light pictures. Quick Capture feature, which gets activated when you jerk your wrist twice while holding the phone.
This opens the camera app and then you can take an image by touching anywhere on the screen, instead of being restricted to the Capture button.

Futuristic voice command capabilities with Google Now. It is supposed to initiate when you say "Okay, Google Now".
I am so eager to use this for something or the either. Its the Touchless control.
Well-merged design that hits the sweet spot between screen size and comfort.
The phone has great battery life too.

Weak points: Storage is the phone's biggest weakness - there's no expandable storage. Just 16GB in the $199 model (the 32GB Moto costs $50 more)
Also, with the kind of smartphones coming up - this piece will look like the one with the smaller screen and its not an iphone to have reasons for smaller screen size.

Review: Blackberry Q10 and Blackberry Q5


Review: Blackberry Q10 and Blackberry Q5

Lets have a look at the specifications for the last of BlackBerry phones
Specification Q10:

1.5 GHz dual core processor
2 GB RAM
8 MP primary camera with full HD
2 MP secondary camera
3.1-inch super amoled display
16 GB internal memory
BB10 OS
Price: INR 38000 + (depending on source) Official 44,990

BB Q10

At a time when every smartphone maker seems to be ditching the QWERTY for a touchscreen, it could have been surprising for any maker to chose to persist with the keyboard in their latest product, but not for me with BlackBerry (BB) Q10.

Since QWERTY keypad has always been a standout for BB, this was always on the cards.
The model also has a lot in common features and software entities with the Z10  which was launched a few months ago.
The phone is smooth in operation. Gestures like swipe and pinching make it easy for users to multi-task (just like any other smartphone except Gestures) and explore the many features of the phone simultaneously. One of the things that we’ve always loved about the BB was that we could access emails and texts in one tab. This has been further expanded with the BB Hub, which now also syncs Twitter, Foursquare and WhatsApp etc, with your phone.
The Internet Explorer 10 works smoothly and makes browsing a pleasant experience. Internet explorer for me was never a BB advantage as compared to phones and androids, but this time is is good. The physical keypad is smooth, as always with BB.
The phone’s camera isn’t the best in the market. When you spend Rs. 40,000, you expect it to have a decent camera that gives print-worthy images. Also, attempts to play games resulted in the no response status from the phone as it hung. Needed restarts too. And offcourse, the apps on the BB World need work and improvement if they have to match with the leaders in Smartphone - iOS and Andorid.

Specification Q5:

1.2 GHz dual core processor
2 GB RAM
5 MP primary camera with full HD
2 MP secondary camera
3.1-inch 720x720 LCD display
16 GB internal memory
BB10 OS
Price: INR 38000 + (depending on source) Official 44,990

BB Q5

The Q5 is a much cheaper Q10. At just over half the price, it gives you near about a Q10-like experience: the same software, in a cheaper package. Where the Q10 felt premium and heavy, with aluminium touches,  Q5 is all-plastic and lighter, but feels sturdy.
The phone’s camera again is a big miss in Q5. Speed is even more sluggish than Q10. And offcourse, again, the apps on the BB World need work and improvement if they have to match with the leaders in Smartphone - iOS and Andorid.
AN advantage for both especially for BB loyalist (if there still any) is that BB 10 no longer requires you to pay for BlackBerry service. You just need a 3G plan and you are good to BBM.
