Many have been asking me about the Galaxy S4’s price so here you go Galaxy fanboys check the prices down below. I must mention that the prices below are for the 3G model NOT the LTE plus no matter where you buy it from I would highly recommend getting Albabtain warranty cause I had a horrible experience with Wahran’s unprofessional workshop staff.
Continuing my Best Of series, here is my best mobile’s list for 2012. My phone’s list will go through best screen, best battery,best phone for hacks, best camera, best highend smart phone with a friendly budget and best luxury phone but before I start just a simple reminder that all the phones mentioned are my personal choice and not based on any other list made from any tech sites, all the mobile phones are available in Kuwait and Ive tried them personally.
Best Phone’s Display
Its really easy to determine which phone has the best display in 2012 , it hosts the same specs as the famous Samsung Galaxy S3 but unfortunately havent had the huge media spotlight or mania as Samsung had. The phone Im talking about is the htc One X beautiful android with a solid build, if compare its 4.7″ display to the Galaxy S3 or the iPhone 5 its like comparing a 2 year old displays to a true HD display its truly AMAZING.
No matter what smart phone you have in your hand and how pleased you are with it at the end of the day it comes to how much battery you still have to make those urgent calls or check those important emails. I actually didnt buy this phone but I’ve used it during my business trip to Istanbul, I accidentally forgot my Blackberry back home and I was planning to use it with a Turkish sim so a friend of mine offered me his motorola Razr Maxx to use it during my trip. He is also an iPhone user and when I asked him why he is not using the Motorola he simply replied its my travel phone, and I came to realize what he meant when I kept using it excessively. Im always connected to the internet checking my work emails, twitter, whatsapp, Google+ you name it plus phone calls of course and at the end of the day I return to my hotel with a 40 % charge. All day long heavy usage and a 40% remaining now thats a BEAST. It also felt so durable in the hands with its kevlar back. The camera is not that great but the battery in this beast is phenomenal a 3300 mAh.
Some may argue that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a 3100 mAh battery plus great specs and awesome display but in my opinion the motorola may claim this category because its much smaller in general, cheaper 90 KD and The Note 2 is a Phablet not a smart phone.
Best Luxury Phone
Hands down it is the BlackBerry Porsche Design P9981, check out my review on the P9981 Here. The design is extraordinary as if it came out of a sci-fi movie.
Best Phone for Hacks
Its so obvious its gonna be the Nexus 4, a pure android experience and a device loved by developers. Usually Nexus phones has a massive number of ROMs that can be installed on it but since its not available in Kuwait yet and the Galaxy Nexus is pretty old now Im gonna choose the htc One X again coz I know its loved by developers and I’ve tried so many ROMs on it.
Although i didnt use it but its the only phablet available in Kuwait till now of course it the Galaxy Note 2.
Best Camera Phone
It cant be a phone list without having the iPhone 5 in it, some may claim it to be the best phone of the year but actually I wont specify a certain best overall phone especially coz we had some great phone in 2012. Back to the iPhone 5, although its just an 8 MP camera but we all know its not always about the number of pixels the camera optics and software play a huge role in picture quality.
Best High End SmartPhone & Budget Friendly
The Samsung Galaxy S3, its the best selling smart phone for 2012 and a great overall phone. Quad core, 4.8″ display, 8 MP camera and it retails for only 160 KD. It hosts almost the same specs as the htc One X & performance wise its a beast. For only 160 KD & 6 colors compared to the iPhone’s starting price of 200 KD or htc’s 190 KD Samsung wins this category. Its not a cheap phone but a high end smart phone with a reasonable price.
A year a go when samsung first introduced 7″ tab shocked the world with their more pocketable & usable tab while challenging the dominating 10″ tabs in the market (iPad). Now Samsung is following up with its successor another 7 ” tablet hosting a honey comb Android software and 1.2 GHz Dual Core . I have to admit that the best form factor & size of all tablets is the 7″ whether its the BlackBerry PlayBook or the Galaxy 7″ Plus.
From my previous posts HERE & HERE u already know that i perviously owned the first Galaxy Tab and absolutely fell in love with it but had to shift to the iPad 2 coz i needed some apps that is not available or actually preforms better on the iPad & incase u r wondering those apps r blogging apps that helps me a lot in making posts coz im always on the go.
Don’t get me wrong but im an Android fan and i believe it has a lot of potentials & it will grow more and more stronger unless Apple & RIM fights it hard. What really bothers me about Samsung latest 7 inch plus tab is its processor which is the same processor used in the Samsung Galaxy S II , Galaxy Nexus & Galaxy Note. am i missing something or shouldn’t they have installed a more powerful processor into it ? basically the selling point for the Galaxy S II that its a mobile phone with ginger bread & for the Nexus is its display, new design & Ice Cream Sandwich ( latest Android version ) as for the Galaxy Note its a hybrid between a tab & a mobile.
Now the big question is why would i buy a tab from Samsung that hosts the same processor as the previously mentioned !!!!
The answer is simple, screen size but not so convinced with this answer so does anyone out there have a better answer than Samsung’s team had.
So i wanna take 5 seconds of ur time just to know which device u might buy or even consider buying between all of those Galaxies
Im so fed up of the top 25 apps in the app store coz most of those apps r either useless or just stupid games (Games for kids mostly)
which really brings me to a conclusion that most of the iPad users & some of the iphones r not even teens they r kids. If u open the app store now trying to discover a good app u wont find any, unless u search it by Name of category coz the top downloaded apps r useless. So i came up with the idea of gathering some screen shots of the most used apps by Bloggers & some of our reader & i would like to thank each one who participated & sent me a screen shot. It is also a good chance to get to know what apps most of blogger use. so lets start 🙂 Not only iphone screen shots were gathered some r Android & BlackBerry so there is something for every body looking for an app that yet they havent discovered.
