Samsung "Mobile Unpacked" Event Reveals New Galaxy S III

clock May 4, 2012 01:12 by author Jeremy

The Galaxy line of phones from Samsung have been nothing short of spectacular. Each new iteration brings something new to the table, and the latest Galaxy S III doesn't disappoint. While it may share a few similarities with it's recent cousin, the Galaxy Nexus, the S III still has a lot of brand new software features to offer.

First off, the hardware. Samsung is showing off it's latest Exynos 4 quad-core processor, rated at 1.4GHz. Along with 1 GB of RAM to help processing speeds, this phone is more than capable of tackling the multitasking that its users will likely ask of it. The phone will come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models, with a microSD slot as well for the media-attuned. The camera isn't exactly out-of-this-world, but still shows off with its 8 megapixels, along with a front-camera boasting 1.9 megapixels. There's zero shutter lag and it takes less than a second to boot up. The camera also offers a burst feature, capturing 20 shots at a rate of 3.3 per second. Lastly, the replaceable battery measures at 2,100 mAh, which is a bit more powerful than other flagship phones (such as the HTC One X).

Samsung seems to have placed a lot of effort into the S III's software. While TouchWiz (Samsung's custom UI) is still around, it actually offers quite a bit on top of Android 4.0.

Smart Stay: The phone utilizes its camera and facial recognition features to watch you through the front camera. As long as you stick around, the phone won't "sleep" and the screen won't shut off.

Smart Alert: Once your phone wakes up (or when you wake up), the phone will inform you of any activity that's occured since sleeping.

S Voice: The phone will "wake up" when you chat to it. You can have up to 5 personalized commands.

S Beam: Similar to Android Beam, the S Beam is an intuitive way of sharing that makes use of WiFi and NFC. By pressing your Galaxy S III against another S III, you can wireless transfer files such as videos and music.

Besides interesting new software, the Galaxy S III has it's own array of gestures that control the phone, but we may have to wait for the official release to see all of them for ourselves.

Apple iPhone 4S Runs HTML 5 Faster Than Android Samsung Galaxy Nexus - PerfMarks Report

clock March 5, 2012 21:29 by author Ty

Which device runs HTML 5 faster? Apple iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

HTML 5 has been tested and proven to run faster on the Apple iPhone 4S running  iOS 5.0.1, when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This claim has been proven by a recent study at Spaceport.io with a benchmark called the PerfMarks Report. The PerfMarks test determines the number of moving images on a screen at a rate of 30 FPS (frames per second). Below are recent scores of the Apple iPhone 4S vs. the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

 Apple iPhone 4S vs. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

From Spaceport's data above, we see the Apple iPhone 4S is significantly better at handling HTML 5 than anything else out on the Android market. The iPhone 4S is able to run 252 images vs. the Samsung Galaxy Nexus at 147 images at 30 FPS.

If you want to see a full list of Spaceport's data that dates back to early 2009, check out the timeline below. You will find comparisons with the iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Motorola Droid 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Kindle Fire, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Apple iPhone VS Google Android

As you can see, year after year, Apple has beaten Android devices in both the smartphone and tablet markets with HTML 5 PerfMarks testing scores. However, the Android OS is closing the gap fast with new and faster releases such as ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich). The proposed and upcoming Google Android Jelly Bean and Key Lime Pie OS releases might give Apple a run for their money with speed.

On a side note, Google Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt stated February 28, 2012 at Mobile World Congress 2012 that people use Google Chrome because it is the most Secure, the Fastest, and it is Free! You can be rest assured that Google has their eyes set to be the fastest smartphone on the market. Here's the video of Eric Schmidt's quote about Chrome being the fastest! We skipped to 1:42 in the video to get straight to the point.
