Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S3 vs Note 2 vs iPhone 5 vs HTC One in a short comparison


Friday 15th of March 2013 / android.gs
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has just been released and everyone is crazy about it, even thought I don’t find it so impressive. And now people will be curious if it’s worth the upgrade or the jump from iOS. So let’s see how it compares to the Galaxy S3, Note 2, HTC One and the iPhone 5.The processor is an Exynos 5 Octa ( dual quad-core ) for Europe and Korea, while it will feature a 1.9Ghz Snapdragon CPU in the US. We didn’t manage to test the new processor, but from the benchmarks we’ve seen it’s definitely superior to the ones featured in the Galaxy S3, Note 2, HTC One or iPhone 5.The Galaxy S4 comes with an improved camera, which seems to do a really good job, while the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and iPhone 5 have 8MP cameras. The Galaxy S4 features a 13MP camera able to do really good photos and the features added to it can really help: Sound & Shot, Drama Shot, Dual Camera, and Eraser. The 5-inch 1080p display is amazing for sure and it’s much better than the one Galaxy S3 or Note 2 features, even surpassing the iPhone 5′s pixels-per-inch rati

HTC Brings in $660 Million worth in Revenue for Month of April; Is This Down to the One?


Monday 06th of May 2013 / androidheadlines.com
It seems there is more interest in HTC’s earnings than anyone else’s right now, after all they are company that while not in dire straits, they aren’t doing as well as they have been. With HTC banking so much on the One, it’s natural for the press to see how they’re faring with their new flagship having finally launched. After posting their worst quarterly results in history, it’s about time some good news came out of the company, and it looks like the One might be taking effect. The company has just published unaudited results for April, and they’ve taken in $660 Million in revenue.This is surely a sign that the One is starting to take effect, especially when it comes to the company’s financials. We should note, however that this is still miles behind the $1.2 Billion revenue it posted last April. This is more than likely due to the fact that the US has yet to see the One on shelves for much of April, as the device was delayed due a shortage of components. HTC are obviously hoping that the One keeps on building steam to help them me

HTC offering up to $300 if you ‘trade up’ to one of their phones


Tuesday 18th of September 2012 / phandroid.com
HTC has a few new phone’s on the horizon, and they are hoping to provide an incentive for smartphone shoppers to consider one (or any of their current handsets on the market) as their next purchase. The Taiwanese manufacturer is offering up to $300 in “trade up” value for customers purchasing a new HTC smartphone.The catch is that, unlike other trade-in programs, you can only claim the value of your phone after purchasing an HTC device. You won’t be able to use the money directly towards the purchase of that phone. Still, HTC has provided a nice online source for getting a quote for your current phone, which should make it easier to bite the bullet up front before sending off your old handset. For instance, HTC is offering $150 dollars for a fully-functional Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX from Verizon.It may be an avenue worth exploring if you are considering a new smartphone purchase. Head over to HTC’s site to see how much your current device is worth.[via DroidLife]

Samsung's Galaxy S II Blasts Over 20 Million in Just 10 Months


Thursday 23rd of February 2012 / android.net
While there is starting to be a trickle of talk regarding the next Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S III, Samsung just released figures indicating how amazingly well their previous gen model is doing. In just 10 months the SGS2 has soared to over 20 Million units sold, which is almost as much as the original Galaxy S device did in over two years (22 Million). Furthermore, if you look at past numbers, by just October, the SGS2 had already sold 10 Million of that 20 Million figure, which shows how quickly it is selling, doubling its sales in just under 6 months. It's worth taking note that Samsung's total global sales of all of their smartphones was 95 Million last year. This means that the SGS2 is over 20% of Samsung's total global commitment to mobile. It's also worth noting that the higher-end devices for Samsung like the SGS2 and the Galaxy Note are also better margin for them, so they will profit more from this as well. Motorola, HTC & LG should take note and follow Samsung's lead. One of the reasons that Samsung has done quite a bit better is because they aren't constantly spamm

Flashed Android Revolution 10 last night


Sunday 02nd of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have to say, it's pretty awesome. I have had zero crashes, slow downs, or issues. For those that don't know, most (MOST) HTC One's can flash any ROM (sorry Sprint users, you're on your own) so we have quite a vibrant dev community behind us. Android Revolution is a port of the recently released update by HTC to the Android 4.2.2, but is still Sense 5. So what do you get when you combine Sense 5 with 4.2.2? Expandable notifications. So much nicer with Play Music and Google+. The quick settings in the notification shade. Don't need to explain this. It was much needed, and requested, and now we have it. I forgot how much I used them on my Nexus 4. HTC added a few more tracks to the Highlight feature in the camera app. One is called Gotham. Yep, exactly like it sounds. This alone is worth flashing a ROM based on the latest update. Here's the for the ROM. I'll keep looking around and will update this post if I notice anything else. I'm sure there's more, but I'm not one to go around and search for changes.

How much will the upgrade cost be for phones like the LG G3 and the HTC One 2 when they release?


Monday 10th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey guys, I have a Galaxy S3 that is giving my lots of problems (camera/flash doesn't work, very short battery life, my microphone quality is apparently terrible) so I think it's time for an upgrade soon, and thankfully I have an upgrade on my line. I was looking at getting the LG G2 for $100 at Verizon. But with the new big name smartphones around the corner, I wanted to get an idea if it's worth the wait. Does anyone know usually what price Verizon charges for the upgrade cost of their newest top of the line smart phones? I think $100 is a good deal for the G2, especially if they will charge $250 or $300 for the newer phones. Unless the phones are substantially better than their previous models. Thanks!
