Nokia X+ – Mobile World Congress 2014

Nokia-X-2

Nokia X+, Nokia X  Both Same Spec Smartphones Running Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Nokia Android UI (tiled look) Bothe Devices Dual Sim,(Not sure about the performance Eg: In Samsung s Dous Dual SIM phone in case if  we trying with 2 Sims phone get stuck) Weight 130g Both same. 480 x 800 PX 4.0 inches display with multi-touch. (2 fingers) internal 4GB Memory and Micro Sd supported up to 32GB, 4Gb Installed Default.  Ram Card the one and only difference between Nokia X and Nokia X+.  WiFi, Gprs Bluetooth included. Camera 3.15 MP 20148×1536 with Panorama, Video 480 @ 30 groups.  No Secondary Camera in both devices.  Cost Qualcomm MSM8225  Snapdragon S4 Play, Dual core 1 GHz Cortex A5 processor, Available in Bright green, bright red, cyan, yellow, black, white. Nokia Launched 3 New Smartphones in World Mobile Congress 2014. In that Nokia X and Nokia X+ both almost same specs. But prices wise Nokia X+ in a bit more.  My opinion is instead of launching  3 Smartphones  Launch One Hight end Smartphone and one mid range phone. But Nokia trying 3 mid range Smartphones at once.  Let’s wait till new Quarter and see how the Mid range phones reaching the market.

Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 – CES 2014

galaxy-camera-2-handson-1

Samsung Galaxy Camera good for bloggers, first of all we’ll  check about the spec of this device Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.8 inches, Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Display Seems awesome and the color also cools. Internal 8GB Memory but 2.8GB Only usable memory card supports up to 64GB and with 2GB Ram card.  Supported with wifi so we can easily sync our image to our PC or can upload it to the web. Now about Camera Quality 16.3 MP, 4608×3456 pixels, autofocus, 21x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, pop-up Xenon flash, AF light, Video Recording 1080p@30fps, 512p@120fps, Running OS, Android Jelly Bean 4.3, Quad core 1.6 GHz, Accelerometer, Gyro, Compass Sensors available. The main thing is this Device got a major size display.

Overall, this device looks cool only issues with internal memory and the 16.3 MP Lens, Because now Sony Z1 Compact (Prev Post) Smartphones got 20.7 MP Camera Lens so here we gets only 16.3 MP lens mean not much enough. Other than that, this smart cam is awesome overall made with plastics (some parts seem like metal, but all the body parts made with plastic).
