iPhone 5Apple’s new iPhone 5.

(Credit: James Martin/CNET)

The Apple iPhone 5 is finally real. While its specs are premium, the iPhone isn’t the only worthwhile smartphone on the block. We compare it, spec to spec, to the top Android and Windows phones: the Samsung Galaxy S3, and Nokia Lumia 920.

Keep in mind that since the Lumia 920 and iPhone 5 aren’t yet available, we’re limited to educated speculation, rather than to the side-by-side, in-the-flesh evaluation. We’ll have to save that for later, when we have all three devices in-house. Until then, we offer up our winners so far for each major category. You don’t have to agree with us, and we certainly reserve our right to change our minds when we see the phones in full, but going on the specs, here’s how we feel.

Design and build
Apple’s aluminum-and-glass iPhone 5 retains its super-industrial aesthetic, metal buttons and all. Its new, all-metal backing could look slightly less luxe than the iPhone 4S‘, but it will survive far more drops.

Then you have the Nokia Lumia 920, whose yellow, red, white, black, or gray polycarbonate body and rounded edges produce a punch of pop sensibility in an otherwise staid design world. It’s a good look for the phone, and a smart one that really helps Nokia stand out; however, distinctiveness and the nevertheless plastic body aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.

We find the GS3’s design appealing, but shiny, glossy plastic doesn’t scream “quality.” That isn’t to say that the GS3 is more prone to breaking or shattering than the other two; in fact, plastic has the benefit of scuffing rather than shattering. However, we do really love the GS3’s in-hand feel, which is comfortable despite its much larger size.

Our winner so far: Based on looks alone, we’re digging the iPhone 5’s familiarly crisp lines most, but we also love the Lumia 920’s colorful unibody statement.

Screen size and clarity
The iPhone 5’s 1,136×640 pixels on its 4-inch screen still yields 326 pixels per inch and gives the phone a 16:9 aspect ratio, wider than the iPhone 4S. However, Apple boasts that its sRGB display delivers 44 percent more color saturation and cuts down on glare.

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has the largest screen of the three, an 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED, which yields a 1,280×720-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 306 pixels per inch. Its size offers the most expansive real estate for watching videos, reading, and composing messages, but there are three minor drawbacks: the lowest pixel density of the trio, high reflection, and a dimmer maximum brightness than the iPhone 4S and the HTC One X.

Nokia’s Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch Nokia PureMotion HD+ display, which is a fancy name to describe its AMOLED screen technology. Its WXGA resolution (1,280×768 pixels) is a little higher than the standard HD (1,280×720 pixels). Combined with the screen size and the 332 pixels per inch, resolution could be tighter than on the GS3 and iPhone 5.

Nokia has also brought its ClearBlack Display filter to the Lumia 920; it definitely cut down glare on the Lumia 900, and Nokia claims that this version is even better.

Our winner so far: The GS3 offer the largest screen, but in terms of clarity, the Nokia Lumia 920 theoretically takes this round for its high pixel density and antiglare properties, followed by the iPhone 5.

Camera prowess
This is a tough call since all three phones bring their A-game here. The iPhone has set the benchmark in terms of camera phone performance for quite a while and the improvements to the iPhone 5’s imaging system will no doubt cement its lead. These include improved low-light performance and a new panorama shooting mode that catches up to Android.

Of course Android devices in many cases surpass the iPhone. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has a sensor that offers the same 8-megapixel resolution as the iPhone 5, plus it features tons of fancy shooting modes like panorama and multishot burst mode.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is the real dark horse in the smartphone camera phone arms race. On paper, its 8.7-megapixel camera and PureView technology promise better performance than both the iPhone and Galaxy S3. It also will be able to run special apps within the camera application itself, allowing you to upgrade its functionality greatly over time — at least that’s the theory.

Our winner so far: Though we haven’t seen the iPhone 5’s camera in action, chances are high that it’ll trump the Galaxy S3 since the iPhone 4S matches the GS3 now. Because Nokia’s Lumia 920 is still unproven and the Lumia 900’s camera wasn’t awe-inspiring, we’re tempering our hopes with doubts.

LTE and network promise
A this point, LTE on the iPhone 5 was an inevitability, and a feature that’s been in the hopper for some time. Verizon has already sworn that all its new smartphones will have LTE, and AT&T and Sprint are expanding their respective networks.

Our winner so far: Samsung phones have long been LTE-capable and the Nokia Lumia 920 will be Espoo’s second LTE phone. Apple is just now catching up.

Battery life
Nokia plans to equip its Lumia 920 with a 2,000 mAh battery, which should provide a good amount of run time, especially considering that Windows Phone has traditionally been a very economical operating system. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a slightly larger 2,100 mAh battery that lasted for well over 9 hours playing video. Apple is coy on the iPhone 5’s capacity, but promises that its will offer 10 hours of video playback and 8 hours of Web surfing over LTE.

Of course, if you’re constantly using battery-draining features like S-Voice on the Galaxy S3, or streaming video, no phone will last as long as you’d like.

Our winner so far: It’s hard to say since we haven’t put the Lumia 920 or iPhone 5 to the test, but the Galaxy S3 is a sure bet for most, plus it offers a removable battery.

NFC
Apple’s iPhone 5 needed a few features to shore up some weak spots: a larger screen, LTE, and, to a lesser extent, NFC. It got the first two, but Apple didn’t mention anything about NFC for the iPhone 5.

NFC, which makes it possible to share content across phones and pay for purchases, might not be a big deal to you, but it is an entire category of software capability that’s closed on the iPhone 5.

Our winner so far: Samsung, which was the first to market with file-sharing over NFC, and has been aggressively marketing its S Beam feature.

Voice assistant
Siri in the iPhone 4S and Google’s Voice Actions are evenly matched, but Samsung is standing behind its own S Voice assistant, which falls far behind.

Nokia phones stick with Microsoft’s integrated, much more subtle voice command software, TellMe, but in Windows Phone 8, Microsoft will let third-party app-makers work in their own commands, so you can bark at individual apps like Audible, to read aloud, pause, or stop.

Our winner so far: Among these three phones, Siri takes the voice command cake.

Final verdict
If we had to recommend just one handset of the three based on these specs right now, we would (narrowly) choose the iPhone 5.

Here’s why: Out of these three phones, the iPhone 5 isn’t the most innovative, but it is a reliable, intuitive package that earns top points for software and hardware reliability. Solid, strong design, LTE speed, and a proven camera that just gets better and better meets iTunes and app store robustness and the new iOS with turn-by-turn voice navigation.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a ton of really neat, innovative new features, but it also has far more trip-ups, which make for a less smooth experience overall. We still love the GS3, but the rich, highly customizable Android 4.0 interface is too much for some users, and many of Samsung’s innovations, especially in content-sharing, are more complicated to use and not very universal.

We’re also very excited to review the Lumia 920, which offers NFC, wireless charging, and promises of a gorgeous display. However, we’re less enamored of Nokia maps, getting multimedia still isn’t as robust as iOS or Android, and there’s a question hanging over the camera, a major selling point for us. We’d also like to see how well wireless charging works; a stumble here would be a major stumble indeed.

The original Lumia 900 camera fell short of expectations, so until we see the Lumia 920’s 8.7-megapixel PureView lens in action, we’re much less certain about its real-life performance. Nokia’s recent camera kerfuffle certainly doesn’t instill unquestioning confidence.

This isn’t by any means a blow-away verdict, and the results will be very much up for debate as the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 come into our offices for scrutiny. One thing is clear, the iPhone faces its stiffest competition yet which makes blindly choosing Apple without examining the facts first a hasty choice — so if you’re at all on the fence about the iPhone 5, we recommend you wait for the full review.

LG’s new top-end Android phone, the Optimus G, has been the subject of a new leak, with specs and images of the forthcoming handset revealed on a Spanish Android fan site.

 

The top-end smartphone rocks a massive 4.7-inch screen with a 1280×720 resolution. Under the hood there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 1.5 GHz quad-core beast which should make this handset run at lightning speed.

There’s set to be a 13 megapixel snapper round the back, with Android Ice Cream Sandwich running out of the box. A Jelly Bean upgrade is expected once the phone has been released, first in Korea, next month.

Apple iPhone 5 picture concept
As Apple iPhone 5 rumours continue to flow, new reports have once again suggest the Cupertino company is planning to ditch its customary 30-pin dock connector in favour of a new iPhone 5 bound 19-pin offering.

The latest proprietary iPhone connection port is expected to be officially unveiled later this year alongside the long awaited Apple iPhone 5 release date with the compact 19-pin connector making enough space available for the handset’s 3.5mm headphone jack to move to the base of the device.

Although far from confirmed, Reuters has cited “two sources familiar with the matter” in suggesting Apple is to introduce the new docking option with the 19-pin options set to become the company’s new standard, being introduced to the iPod and iPad lines at the next refresh. The unnamed sources are reported to have confirmed that the changes is being introduced in part “to make room for the earphone moving to the bottom”

Whilst any change in docking standard would be sure to anger many Apple fans who have splashed out considerable amounts of money on compatible accessories, Canalys analyst Pete Cunningham has suggested the move “represents an opportunity for accessory vendors.”

He added: “The iPhone connector has been a standard for a long time now and I would expect the same to be true for a new connector, should Apple change it as expected.”

Apple iPhone 5 Rumours

Long the thing of rumour and speculation, the Apple iPhone 5 has been said to be readying for a raft of updates in recent weeks with everything from a new style dock connector to a completely re-imagined form factor reportedly lined up for inclusion.

Seemingly set to land running the WWDC unveiled iOS 6 mobile operating system, a late September unveiled has long been on the cards for the iPhone 4S replacement with an iPhone 5 release date apparently set to occur in the weeks that follow.

Elsewhere, the usual improved camera optics and speedier, Samsung Galaxy S3 rivalling quad-core processor have been repeatedly rumoured with a larger, 4-inch display and a completely overhauled design also on the works to turn the sixth-gen smartphone line up as Apple’s slimmest device to date.

What would you like to see from Apple’s next-generation iPhone device? Would a change in dock standard annoy or appease you? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.

XOLO X900

XOLO X900

The first Intel smart phone is here Xolo X900, with its own atom chips and not able to secure the support of HTC and Samsung they decided to band it on by themselves. Intel went ahead with Chinese tech giant Lenovo and Indian manufacturer Lava to launch their initial smart phones. The price is around $399 in US and Rs.22,000 in India. Let’s find out what Intel has for us in its first smart phone.

Hardware

The XOLO 900 looks polished and feels nice in ones hand, the overall design isn’t a eye catcher but it looks good. It has a rectangular shape similar to iPhone 4/4S. It comes with a 4.03 inch screen and gives a 1024 x 600p resolution along with capacitive Android buttons. Furthermore 1.3 mega pixel front camera and has a small silver ear piece on the front. On the right side there is a micro-SIM card slot with a dedicated camera button, volume rocker and a speaker. The matching second speaker is on the left along with a HDMI out-port. At the top there is a power button and the 3.5 mm head jack. On the rubberized back there is the 8 mega pixel camera, LED flash and the XOLO, Intel logo.

Display

Display is something that every new smart phone is enhancing day by day, XOLO came up with the 1024 x 600p resolution the same as Kindlefire has. It is not the 720p but it’s not that disappointing. The display offers nice colors and viewing angles. The display has 295 pixels per inch hence consumers would hardly notice any individual pixels. The touch is great and have no problems at all.

Camera

It has the 8 megapixel camera on the back and 1.3 megapixel camera on the front and is clubbed with the most comprehensive camera app we have ever seen. I t has the function of Burst Shot, the same in HTC One X, which takes 10 pictures in less than a second on one click. But its shots when burst mode off lacks behind the cameras of to the smart phones in color and quality. The video recording allows you to record a video up to 1080p which is pretty much a standard in high smart phones. The recording output is decent and looks good.

Software

It comes with the gingerbread as it was released early, there are no additional apps installed in XOLO X900 except the XOLO care app and the inclusion of Swype. The compatibility of apps with the XOLO X900 is the main thing to worry as games like temple run, Shadowgun, deer hunter etc are not supported.

Performance

It comes up with the Intel’s Atom Z2460 32nm SoC with processor clocked at up to 1.6 GHz. There is no sluggishness or any lag while going through menus and apps. The processer works great and is fast and competes with other smart phones quite well. XOLE X900 comes with a 1460mAh battery which passes up to one day. The gaming experience is good and works quite well.

XOLO X900 works quite well and is Value for money but the branding might hurt the phone.

The release of Samsung Galaxy S3 has been making headlines nowadays. It is said that it is the most powerful smartphone currently in the world, even iPhone 5 will not be able to compete with the power of Galaxy S3. Samsung is claiming that over 10 million pre orders have been received before even the release of their flagship mobile phone. Galaxy S3’s price (which will be discussed later in the article) is not the price which looks like the price of a high end smartphone. But still it’s not very cheap, so we will find out if this phone deserves to be bought by spending so much hard earned money. In this article we will discuss Samsung Galaxy S3 from all the angles so that you will have a clear image of the potential of this mobilephone.

Design: Sleek, Stylish and You will Love the Colors!

Let us start with the design. The design of Samsung galaxy S3 is playing an important role in its sale. According to Samsung it is a nature inspired smartphone. When you first hold S3, the nature theme is there which allows you to choose between different backgrounds including “Marble White” and “Pebble Blue”.

The dimensions of the smartphone are 136.6 x 78.6 x 8.6mm. It is a large device with a Super AMOLED HD screen of 4.8 inches. 4.8 inches is reasonable screen size for a powerful device like Galaxy S3. If we look at the back cover then as always its plastic but keep in mind that it is not ordinary plastic which gives cheap feeling on holding like of some other Galaxy Devices. It is made up of polycarbonate which is far better than the ordinary plastic. When the back cover is removed to look at the interior, it is found to well adjusted and packed. I would like to add before concluding the design section that you will feel the same sensation which you felt after using the Samsung Galaxy S2 for the first time.

Interface: Android 4.0 is Fast and Beautiful!

All of the Galaxy fans will know that Galaxy S3 is running on the latest Android 4.0 named as ice cream sandwich. The interface is basically the same but with changes and improvements. The main improvement is the speed. The lag with which android users were used to is not there even if multiple apps are running at the same time. Here I would like to mention that this smartphone wakes up from sleep in absolutely no time which shows the improvement in speed.

Secondly the lock screen method and design has been changed. When you touch the screen you will notice a little water drop under your finger on the screen and when unlocking the screen you will hear the sound of a drop falling in water. The whole process is simply very pleasing but with time it gets irritating and turning off the sound will not be a bad option. Applications can also be accessed from the lock screen of your phone by drawing gestures.

Camera: More than Enough But not Pro!

The camera fitted in the device is 8 mega pixels. If we look at the smartphone market then it seems like 8mp is a bit less than required but if you look at the situation like this that why will anyone need a camera more than this in their phone? I am not saying that 12mp is not that good, 12 mp is quiet good and in my opinion there is no need to fit a camera more than required like the one fitted in Nokia Lumia 900 (41mp camera). However, if you think you can use it for professional purposes, think again! Buddy photo share, Burst Mode and Face zoom are some of the main features.

Features: Powerful Processor with Adequate Memory!

Camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi are the essential features of any smartphone, which we already know are present in the Galaxy S III. It has a powerful processor of 1.4GHz working under the hood which makes the processing of functions very speedy and lag free. It is available in 16/32 and 64 GB built in memories which can be extended by adding an extra 64 GB with the help of external SD card. Internet is also quiet fast due the EDGE capability. Other features include FM Radio as well.

Final Verdict and Price: Less than Expected!

Sometimes, along with other metrics, the overall sale of any product or service can give strong hints about the quality and usability of that particular product. The South Korean vendor has flaunted their 79% boost in sales, which has fetched them $5.9 billion in terms of profit in a short period of 3 months, not just that, but they also suggested they expect to see further increase in sales and are looking forward to sell 19 million unites by September, their all time high.

The graph and statistics above draw a picture, which proves that S3 is a popular choice as of now, and it’s not merely based on hyper marketing, but the gadget is actually very sleek, however, the only the only segment where it lacks is its size, well to me at least!

As far price is concerned, Samsung had held a launching event in Lahore earlier in June and put a price tag of Rs. 62,000/-

Even though the country’s economy is weak and affordability is iffy, but if you want to shell out some pretty without waiting for the launch of iPhone 5, then S3 is probably one of your best bet as of now.


Despite both not being eligable for Windows Phone 8 Nokia has seen fit to bless both with a new update bringing with it the much-requested Wi-Fi Hotspot

Nokia have today released a Windows Phone 7.5 update for the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 enabling Wi-Fi Hotspot and bringing with it the new Camera Extras image editing app.

Letting you act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five other devices, the update brings some other features including flip-to-silence letting you turn your Nokia Lumia face down to silence incoming calls.

Elsewhere there’s Camera Extras a new app which brings with it some powerful image editing functions including Smart Group Shot which takes five quick images of a group of people and then lets you choose each person facial expression from the selection.

Self-timer is now included along with Panorama which uses advanced software to let you easily stitch together a full panorama shot. Finally there’s Contact Share which lets you send and receive business cards over SMS.
