Google's Nexus 5: Check out these photos

Sponsored Links

Google has unveiled its latest android smartphone Nexus 5 and if the images are anything it looks pretty dainty. Just a small piece of advice though: If you are into brands, buy the Nexus 5 (developed with LG). If you are into brains go for Samsung S3 - or keep your Nexus 4, or your trusty iPhone 4 (see price list of Nexus 5: US, UK and India prices below).

Also, you have good odds on your old inbuilt RAMs than the SD cards (Shock! Yes, SD cards - those things from the Jurassic park!) Google's android devices love to have. Nonetheless, the smartphone looks quite pretty and sleek. Check out the Nexus 5's looks.

The Nexus 5 looks pretty but I think I'll stick with the Nexus 4. The camera is still 8 MP. The new smartphone comes in black and white and costs $349 for a 16GB unlocked version or $399 for 32GB. One consolation though, is that the Nexus 5 is way cheaper than Apple's new iPhones. For example, the iPhone 5c, the cheaper of the two new iPhones, costs $549 for a 16GB version that comes without a wireless contract. 

US Price: $ 349

UK Price: £ 218

India price: approximately Rs. 25, 429

Samsung Galaxy S4: Introducing another iPhone competitor

Sponsored Links

Samsung Electronics is ready to take on the iPhones of the world. The features-rich Samsung Galaxy S4 was unveiled in New York’s Radio City Music Hall earlier and, naturally, one of the most anticipated smartphone devices ever iPhone 5 is  ready to hit the mobile market.

My sources say that the android device is run on Exynos 5 Octa Processor - that's one bit almost faster than the iPhone 5 - and if the system is anything to consider its potential in the market, Asia is already mighty agog. The device would be released probably simultaneously in the UK and India in April as well, according to reports.

So what is all the ado about this newcomer from the Samsung Galaxy stable? In the first place the S4 comes with a display of 4.99” 16M-color Super AMOLED HD capacitive touchscreen. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels (441ppi). That's slightly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy SIII but with a bigger and brighter screen. Here it is, isn't it good looking?

The operating system in the S4 is Android 4.2.2 Jellybean while the processor is 1.6 GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 and 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 / 1.9GHz Krait 300. The RAM looks okay with 2GB Memory (internal storage of 16/32GB/64GB with a microSD card slot.)

Camera: What about the camera - obviously the biggest feature we all would love to know right? Well, it big - 13 MegaPixel auto-focus; 2 MP front-facing. Happy now? The S4 also has a face-detection, touch focus and image stabilization, Dual Shot functionality and of course "Cinema" photo facilities.

Video: Full HD (1080p) at 30fps Dimensions: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9mm, 130 gm Battery: 2600 mAh

Connectivity: Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, standard microUSB, GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS, NFC, Infrared port.
