Best Android Phones

We assess five of the very best Android phones on the market these days, which includes the HTC Thunderbolt 4G, Motorola Atrix 4G, and HTC Inspire 4G.

The world of Android is rapid and furious (it's possible as well fast and far too furious). We manufactured a Best Android handsets listing six months in the past, but it is already woefully outdated. Our late 2010 picks ended up the Motorola Droid X, HTC EVO 4G, HTC Droid Extraordinary, T-Mobile G2, and Samsung Captivate. Whilst these are all however great Android units, time marches on, and so do our picks. Down below are 5 of our favourite Android handsets presently on the marketplace.

Also examine out our picks for The Ideal Android Applications and the Best Android Video games.


HTC Inspire 4GHTC Inspire 4G
($a hundred on AT&T with two-12 months deal)

The Inspire might not have the fancy dual-core processor that some of the latest Android phones have, but it’s a wonderful machine at a wonderful price. We’re large fans of HTC’s Sense person interface (UI), which may well be the very best Android user interface on the market place, specially for new people. If this is your very first smartphone and you’re on AT&T, the four.three-inch phone is a great selection. For those wanting to know, the Inspire 4G has 4GB of internal storage, an 800MHz TI OMAP 3610 processor, 4G HSPA+ support, and a 480 x 800 pixel display. It has a couple of shortcomings, even so. It lacks a entrance-going through digital camera and the battery cover is oddly positioned and challenging to get rid of. We are also even now waiting for an upgrade to Android 2.three, which HTC states will arrive quickly.

Examine out our full HTC Inspire 4G overview.


Motorola Atrix 4GMotorola Atrix 4G
($200 on AT&T with two-year contract)

Motorola produced a large splash with its sequence of Droid phones on Verizon, but its flagship AT&T phone has had a tough time catching on with customers, probable mainly because of its far-way too-high priced laptop computer dock attachment. We’re honestly not certain what Motorola was contemplating when it introduced the $500 peripheral with the Atrix 4G. Clear away the dock from the equation though, and the Atrix 4G is a single of the finest phones on the market today with a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra two processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 540 x 960 qHD 4.-inch screen, 4G HSPA+ assistance, and a created-in biometric fingerprint reader. The only downside to the handset is that it works by using the MotoBlur UI, which just does not maintain up properly when compared to the modified UI by HTC and other makers.

Test out our total Motorola Atrix 4G assessment.


T-Cell G2xT-Mobile G2x
($200 on T-Mobile with two-12 months agreement)

The T-Cell G2x is really an LG Optimus mobile phone, and exhibits that LG is beginning to lead the pack with its high-end Android units. We do not have a total critique out yet, but we got the chance to shell out some time with this phone at CTIA in late March and walked absent extremely impressed. Nevertheless it has a 1GHz dual-core processor, its specs don’t quite match up to the Atrix, but hey, it’s most likely the best mobile phone on T-Cell right now, and quick sufficient to fulfill the most demanding of consumers. We also like that LG tends to leave Android on your own, for the most component. In contrast to Motorola, which appears to be to tamper just for the sake of tampering, the Android UI changes in LG’s newer phones are minimally invasive and appear to make feeling. We cannot complain about the HDMI mirroring both. This is a system well worth switching carriers for, if T-Cell protection is very good in your place. The carrier also has some of the greatest data premiums.

Study our palms-on impressions.


HTC ThunderBolt 4GHTC ThunderBolt 4G
($250 on Verizon with two-12 months deal)

If you’re prepared to reside on the reducing edge, the Verizon HTC ThunderBolt is a great decision for you. This is the first cell phone that can tap into the carrier’s next-era 4G LTE network, which is up and jogging in several metropolitan areas across the United States. Clearly, you’ll want to check your regional protection, but give it a spin if it is offered. There are downsides to residing on the bleeding edge, on the other hand. Verizon’s 4G network has had a couple of hiccups and ThunderBolt people have complained of shorter-than-average battery lifestyle for the handset. However, it could be worse, and Verizon’s network is poised to have the greatest actual 4G protection for some time to come, as AT&T’s LTE network is nevertheless in early testing.

Viber for Android review

Viber is a popular VoIP and free messaging service on the iOS platform. In fact it has been downloaded over 12 million times on Apple’s app store. The Android version recently graduated from beta and is now available to the Android Market.

Read on to see what I thought about it.

Viber is different from many other VoIP services in that instead of requiring you to create a new login, it uses your phone number as an identifier, not at all dissimilar to WhatsApp. This would mean having to give out your number to people.

Once activated (a process that took me a couple of seconds), the app scanned my phone book and found 12 of my contacts that was also on Viber. The neat thing about Viber is the app also a universal phone dialler, allowing you to dial other none Viber users on a traditional phone line.

Viber features a tabbed based UI suspiciously similar to the iPhone phone app. In fact the dialler is a straight copy off the one on the iPhone with a different colour scheme. You get to see all recent and missed calls (including those made via Viber and normal phone calls).

The contacts tab shows you contacts that are on Viber as well as everyone else who isn’t. You can pin contacts into a favourite sub menu. Finally, as Viber also supports free data messages, there is a separate tab for it. Unfortunately it only supports basic texts. For a more complete free text messaging system, I suggest getting WhatsApp. You can enable pop up notification for new texts.

Viber calls are free because phone calls are routed through WiFi or packet data (GPRS, HSPA etc.). Well, not strictly free as you do need to pay for a data plan. This is called VoIP and works not differently from other VoIP services like Skype. As Viber is built from the ground up to work on mobile data networks, the engineers had to make sure that it doesn’t use more data than it has to.

Based on testing, I found that a typical 4 minute Viber calls only uses about 600KB of downloaded data. This isn’t set in stone, as it really depends on how talkative you are and network condition. I found voice quality to be comparable to a normal GSM phone call, even on a 3G network and better than Skype. The app helpfully lets you know how the network quality is and what to expect.

Viber also integrates wells with the Android phone book, allowing you to dial anyone via Viber. If someone isn’t on Viber, a pop up notification will inform you that the user isn’t on Viber and gives you an option to make a regular call through your carrier.

I have not extensively tested how much Viber has impacted the battery life on my Galaxy S2, but so far I have not see any dramatic decrease in battery life. Suffice to say I believe it to be negligible and the cost saving associated with using Viber offsets any concern with power usage.

If there is one nitpick I find with Viber is unfortunately I have not seen a way to block calls from other Viber users who happens to have your number. I guess I can’t complain much as this is whole regular phone calls are – you can’t block anyone from calling you if he or she already have your number.

Viber doesn’t bring anything new to the table but it does what it does very well. Once installed the app starts automatically and works in the background. The one thing that still gives Skype a slight edge is video calling and ability to make VOIP to regular phone calls via SkypeOut. If Viber can integrate similar features and release on more mobile platforms, Microsoft’s purchase of Skype will start to look like a bad mistake.

As for me I am already a convert. The people who I want to call most are already on Viber and I keep finding more on my phone book registering on Viber every day. It wins on simplicity, ease of use and deep integration, and for those alone, I can’t stop recommending this.

Panasonic Android eReader Now Official

We first heard about Panasonic’s plans for an Android e-book reader a few weeks ago. The information was pretty vague and Panasonic was being pretty cagey withe the details. They didn’t even tell us the name of the device!




Well, that’s changed. Panasonic has finally made the details of their upcoming product available. Named the “Raboo”, the company also shared with us details about the product’s price and availability.



Let’s start with what the company says the Raboo will be packing.



First of all, it will run Android 2.2 – which is a bit dated but still serviceable. However, the Raboo will have no access to the Android Market, although it will come with 16 apps pre-installed. It will pack a 7-inch LCD screen with 1024×600 resolution – which is pretty nice but not e-ink. Unfortunately, it will only handle XMDF files and have 8 gigabytes of internal storage. It will also boast microSDHC/SDHC card slots and USB port for additional input. It will also be capable of using IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Surprisingly, it has a 1.3MP web cam – which is strange for an e-reader. It’s also got a couple of 500mW×2ch speakers and a DIGA/VIERA link. Battery life should run up to six hours – which is pretty poor for an e-reader.



So why the name Raboo? Raboo is short for Rakuten Books, a subsidiary of Rakuten, and will be offering over 10,000 e-books on their catalog from the start. This is the same reason why the Raboo is limited to XMDF, which is Rakuten book’s own proprietary file syste. It’s got an August 10 release and will sell for $445 – though don’t expect to see it outside Japan with it’s connection to Rakuten.

HTC Desire Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be rolling out this month

via:http://www.unwiredview.com/

The saga of HTC’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the original Desire is about to reach its conclusion, and it will surely be a happy ending for the millions of HTC Desire owners out there. Or at least for those in the UK.

HTC initially said it couldn’t make Gingerbread available for the Desire, then said it changed its mind, and then started posting regular updates about the update. In one such tidbit, HTC said it’s begun testing the update – which implied it was finished, or at least ‘feature complete’ as they say.

Today HTC took to Facebook yet again to bring us further good news. Apparently, the testing went well (that we assume to mean that there weren’t any major bugs, and the minor ones are in the process of being fixed), and so the update will start rolling out before the end of this month.

HTC EVO 3D & HTC Sensation 4G Battery Life Saving Tips

We learned yesterday that some HTC EVO 3D owners were experiencing issues with their smartphones heating, and forum members also reported short battery life on the HTC EVO 3D. When we were recently at the HTC booth at a trade show, the HTC reps were continually recharging the batteries for the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G.

Both HTC smartphones have a super powerful dual-core processor that drains the battery. That's not all that drains batteries. Recording and playing 3D movies puts a major drain on the battery for the HTC EVO 3D. Viewing videos drains the battery from showing the video and also by connecting to the network to download the movies on both the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G.

Features that drain the battery life of the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G are:

Multiple radios to power (3G, 4G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS).
Larger screens than most other smartphones.
Management of multiple email accounts and synching, as well as social media functions.
Use as Wi-Fi hotspot with Wi-Fi router functions.
GPS and access to third-party apps..

If you want to know what's draining your battery, you can check in Settings > About Phone > Battery > Battery use.

Here are some ways to save battery life on the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G:

Turn off your Bluetooth, GPS, 4G, Wi-Fi, and hotspots when you are not using them.
Manage wallpaper, screen brightness, and the time you keep the screen on.
Change your email settings to download email more or less frequently.
Slow down your weather and Peep (Twitter) settings.
Sign out out Google Talk IM - When you sign up for the Google Market or Gmail with your Gmail account information, you are also signed into the Google Talk instant messaging. The Talk application tracks the presence of your Google Talk contacts in order to let you know who is available to instant message. Each presence change uses power, even if you do not have the Talk application open.
Exit TeleNav GPS Navigator, or it keeps running in the background.
Turn off 4G when you don't need it.
Close apps when you're done by tapping Menu key inside the app.

For the HTC ThunderBolt, in which battery drain is a real pain in the processor, users bought higher-capacity batteries and switched them out.

Both the 3 and HTC Sensation 4G have 1700mAh batteries, which is a lot of power. If you had more mAh, you'd get more battery life.

We were only able to find higher-capacity batteries that fit in a smartphone without a new back cover for up to 1850mAh, which would not add a lot of usage time. A spare, charged battery in your pocket would double your battery life time. Seido is expected to make a 3200mAh battery that will require a special back cover.

One of our most popular tips and tricks articles is "Top Ten Best Ways to Save Android an' Droid Battery Life." The first step is to add the power control widget and then to shut down the functions you don't use or don't want activated.

Because the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation 4G have been very popular, our HTC Sense 3.0 Top Ten Tips & Tricks for the EVO and Sensation have also been v-e-r-y popular.

The best deal that we could find for the HTC EVO 3D (read review) is from online retailer Amazon Wireless, with the HTC EVO 3D discounted to $149.99. You can also buy the new HTC EVO 3D at Wirefly and with a low-price guarantee and free shipping.

The reviews of the HTC Sensation 4G have all been sensational. Amazon Wireless is selling it for $179.99 with a new contract. Wirefly has a similar special price, and you can get a free SD card with a coupon. source:http://www.wirelessandmobilenews.com/2011/07/htc-tips-htc-evo-3d-htc-sensation-4g-battery-saving-tips-help.html

VZW leak teases HTC Thunderbolt update: Skype Video, Android 2.3.4 coming June 30th?
By Joseph Volpe posted Jun 20th 2011 4:43PM
It's taken Verizon Wireless a painfully long time to get here, but it looks like the HTC Thunderbolt -- the carrier's once flagship 4G LTE device -- might finally be getting the much talked about, but not-quite-officially delivered Skype with Video. We first brought you news of a leaked build back in April, but if this rumored June 30th release pans out, you'll get to experience mobile video chat with your honeybun first-hand, as well as some Android 2.3.4 loving. As is the case with most carrier updates, Big Red appears to be loading this one up with some goodies -- not just bloatware. Sure, the requisite VZW apps are on-board, but how's about some Gtalk Video, a pre-loaded Amazon Appstore, and a handy fix for those irritating reboots? Keep in mind, we're still firmly planted in rumor territory, but it does seem like Thunderbolt owners are getting closer to the initial dream.

Refurbished Iphone 4

Should I get a refurbished Iphone 4 32gb or a New Iphone 4 16GB from the official AT&T site?

They are both the same price, 199$ with 2 year contract. Is it worth getting the 32GB risking any scratches, anybody know how AT&T refurb phones’ conditions are?

You should get the new Iphone 16gb, because it’s worth getting a brand new phone than having an old, fixed one. Refurbished items are usually exactly the same and you can’t tell the difference, except you never know what the quality of it actually is. I suggest you stick to the brand new one. I have a 16GB iphone 4, and I think it’s big enough

HTC Sensation, Wildfire S: Now what's the fuss here, really


It was one of those uneventful weeks that passed, but before the month ended, I got a little piece of fervidness as I got a glimpse of HTC’s two latest products, the HTC Sensation and HTC Wildfire S. The truth is, I was really looking forward to seeing these two as my love for Android started with HTC. It was way back when the “original” Wildfire was introduced and needless to say, I had good memories of it.

The HTC Wildfire totally had a fresh make-over. Physically, from its youthful spunk last year came a totally revamped more serious look; hence the Wildfire S. It is smaller, slimmer and lighter and just like its precursor, Wildfire S still posses a 3.2 inch display.

I wasn’t able to see much difference in its resolution although it should have had improved to 320 x 480. Oh well, it did however came with a handful of upgrades like its processor now at 600 Hz Qualcomm MSM 7227 and Android 2.4 Gingerbread for its software. I guess the only feature that made quite a difference and truly worth mentioning would be the capacity of its 5 MP camera to capture hi-def 720p video.

nokia sea ray


Introduced by no other than the company CEO, Stephen Elop in what he thought was a camera-free environment. Despite his confidentiality plea someone couldn't resist the temptation and shared a few photos and a quick video with us.

We don't know if Stephen Elop is really so naive as to believe that no one will take a shot of one of the most hotly anticipated devices of the year or this is just a clever way to gain some publicity, but it doesn't matter really. What matter is that we got to see first Nokia WP7 handset a few months ahead of its official announcement.

And here it comes - Nokia's first WP7 device codenamed Sea Ray (possibly the W8-00):

As you can see the device is very similar to the recently announced Nokia N9, but has a dedicated hardware camera key, different LED placement and, of course, it is running on Windows Phone 7 with the Mango update.

So, there you have it - Nokia has at least one sweet-looking Windows Phone 7 smartphone in the pipeline. We'll have to wait more for the official announcement and see if there will be another device to join it.
