The battle

According to the facts, last year was showcased by the drastic success of Samsung’s top-end Galaxy S3 smartphone, which stormed past the 40 million sales this year making it the best-selling Android smartphone of all time. Since that time, Samsung has attempted to repeat this success with its new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.

So talking about the design and build of these smart phones, both have the same slightly curved design, rear plates and metal outer edges and a home button. Although S4 suffers from some build quality issues.

Clearly enough, Samsung has worked hard to improve its screen technology over S3. Galaxy S4 comes preloaded with Android 4.2.2. Having said that, S4 does pack a host of new custom software services not featured on the S3. Though Air-gesture feature of S4 is fairly pointless because it works only when your hands are almost toughing the screen of your phone. Even the interface used on the S4 is markedly different to the one used on the S3.

It would be a bit of injustice to S4 if i wouldn’t mention the new features of S4, so here they are:

Larger display, with a higher resolution

More built-in features

Better camera result

High processing power

Newer version of MHL

High battery life

Slimmer and delicate design

Better accessory range

S4 has double RAM and also increased handset’s processing power. There’s a big spec bump when it comes to the sensor – 13MP on the S4 compared to 8MP on the S3. One could not deny that S4’s camera has better results. Actually, in my opinion, the improvements to the camera are one of the main reasons that you should consider the S4 over the S3.

So the war continues but needless to say that Samsung has added many features to the S4, some of which may seem amazing to the user. However, everything depends on what you want from the experience.





Samsung, the Korean multi-billion dollar firm is certainly batting a hundred in the technology market. Who would have ever thought that Samsung would beat Apple and their ties will seem to be so difficult to clarify. To add more competition in the market, Samsung has now started to preach the Android technology for its cameras, giving Nikon a slap in the face.
However, it is true that Samsung will have to introduce such powerful and staunch cameras which would also cast turmoil for Canon which is the profound love for photographers, though; the latter has no relationship with Android.
Galaxy Camera EK-GC100
Samsung introduced the Galaxy EK-GC100 in mid 2012 which undoubtedly poses as a threat to Nikon’s own Android featured camera, the Nikon S800C. The Galaxy EK-GC100 has a wide-angle 28mm lens, a 1/2.3″ 16 megapixel CMOS Sensor and a 21X Optical Zoom. The camera is capable of producing HD videos streaming on a 4.8 inched touch screen.
In contrast to Nikon S800C, the Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 may appear to be quite flamboyant in the technical area, of course. The latter runs on a spectacular and the latest Android technology, embedding the Android 4.1 JellyBean under its operative system. Also, the Galaxy Camera may peruse the access of Google playstore accompanied with a 1 GHz quad-core processor which is not so unique in terms of Android technology.
As this has been the first Android camera powered by Samsung, future has it that Samsung will acknowledge the technology background and may pursue to cast a halt on most of the unkempt android phones in the market.

The Kyocera Rise

HTC has just announced recently that it currently has no plans for to design devices with “real” keyboards. But the rumors about such a device from Google in this regard can make a little bit of hope.

Kyocera is quite unpopular in terms of manufacturing mobile phones, especially in U.S. markets. It is unlikely that the new device from Kyocera, which takes the name of Kyocera Rise will find its way to the markets. But, it is interesting enough to take a look at this Android phone.

The Kyocera Rise has a 1 GHz processor to 512 MB ​​of RAM available, and also has 2 GB of internal memory on board. Furthermore, the smartphone has a 3.5 IPS display of 480 x 320 pixels, a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash, plus a hardware camera button. As for the battery, it has a 1,500 mAh battery.


Android Malware Spreads Via Trapped Websites

A new malware attacks Android smartphones and tablets. The new malware is called “NotCompatible”, which spreads through trapped websites.

When visiting a website, it unwittingly triggers the download of an application (a technique called “drive-by download”). A message asks if the user wants to install a so-called security update. For this trap to work, it requires that the victim has set its smartphone to allow the installation of “unknown sources”, which limits the risk anyway.

Lookout solutions believes that through this Trojan could even be used to enter a corporate network via an infected Android smartphone. But for now, the number of websites infected with this malware is fairly limited.
