BlackBerry Q10 – BlackBerry 10 OS

So far so relatively ordinary. What really sets the X10 apart from previous BlackBerrys though is the new BlackBerry 10 operating system. This centres around a number of key new features, many of which emphasise a focus on multitasking.

The main homescreen is split up into three sections with the BlackBerry Hub on the left, multitasking page in the centre and pages of apps off to the right. BlackBerry Hub is the central repository for all messages, updates and emails, just like the messages app of existing BlackBerrys – it’s a useful one-stop shop for all your phone’s goings on. As for the multi-tasking page, this is the central focus of the phone as whenever you swipe upwards to close an app it’s here that you land. It shows four large thumbnails to your apps that unlike iOS also show the contents of each app. Swipe upwards and you can scroll through the full list of running apps. And as mentioned, swiping to the left will bring up the pages of apps which simply expand to the right as you install more apps.

This multifaceted homepage style is a bit difficult to get your head around at first as it isn’t as simple as the pages of apps on iOS or the customisable homescreens and app menu of Android and Windows Phone 8. But, with time it’s something that may become very useful, which is something we’ll report on in our full review.

Another key feature, which we’ve already touched upon are the gestures. There are no buttons on this phone (aside from the keyboard) so it relies heavily on using gestures to move between screens, close apps and generally get stuff done. Again, it takes a little bit of getting used to but there’s a decent tutorial when you first start the phone up that guides you through the essentials.

There’s plenty more to the OS that sets it apart from the rest, which we’ll touch on more in our upcoming review. Our first impressions, though are that we can see quite a few users finding it all too fussy. Also, there aren’t enough visual cues as to how to move about the interface, plus we’re not fans of the rather cumbersome animation that accompanies the opening of apps – it slides across from the app pages to the multi-tasking page and only then opens the app. Still, as we say, it’s early days yet.

[Review] Videotron Canada HTC Windows Phone 8S

The HTC 8S — also known as the Windows Phone 8S by HTC — is a fun and funky looking handset that feels speedy to use despite its modest processor and has a good all-round line up of features for its price. If you’re looking for an affordable route into Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS, it’s a good option.

HTC Windows Phone 8S

Good

  • Refreshingly different design
  • Slick and modern Windows Phone 8 OS
  • Dual-core processor
  • MicroSD card

Bad

  • Lacks Nokia’s extra apps
  • Screen and camera are nothing special

The HTC 8S, or Windows Phone 8S by HTC to give it its ridiculous full title, sits several steps down from HTC’s flagship 8X Windows Phone. Whereas the 8X goes head to head with Nokia’s Lumia 920, the 8S doesn’t really match up with Nokia’s 820, as it’s a fair bit cheaper.

It slots into a space between low-end and mid-range smart phones. It’s certainly the most affordable route in if you want to taste Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating.

 

HTC has equipped the 8S with a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, and provides just 512MB of RAM. Now, performance is perfectly acceptable, but I did notice that things were not quite as slick as they are with the very best equipped Windows Phones. I didn’t experience juddering video or long waits for anything to happen, but there’s a definite lack of slickness to proceedings.

The screen is another area where things are acceptable rather than superb. At 4in the screen is just about large enough for watching video, and the Super LCD is bright and clear.

Conclusion

If you’re thinking of making the move to Windows Phone 8, then the 8S is certainly an affordable and stylish route into Microsoft’s OS. It feels very smooth to use and looks quite different to most other smart phones on the market.

The lack of NFC and a front facing camera may bother some, but it does have the advantage of a microSD card, which the Nokia 920 and HTC 8X lack, and overall I think it’s a good all round package for the money.

[Review] Wind LG Optimus L9 p769

Samsung T159

The good: The Samsung t159 has terrific call quality, large buttons, visual voice mail, and an affordable price.

The bad: Samsung’s t159 has a small display and weak resolution; it lacks a dedicated headset jack.

The bottom line: An example of excellent call quality at a dirt-cheap price, the Samsung t159 excels at the basics, but stumbles on style.

Wind Samsung T159 Instrucciones Liberar

Simple flip phones like T-Mobile’s Samsung t159 remain relevant for one primary purpose: placing and taking calls. Lacking the pomp of smartphones packed to the gills, they had better at least get call quality right. Thankfully, Samsung’s $20, stripped-down t159 passes the audio test with flying colors.

Design and OS
There are flip phones with more sheen and style than the Samsung t159; in fact, almost all of them offer some graceful line or polished accent. Not so in the case of this stock phone. Its all-black form looks boring and cheap, the only interesting part is a fine-grain diamond pattern on the back panel. At least the finishes fit the $19.99 price tag. On the plus side, the t159’s slim dimensions — 3.8 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick — fit it easily into pockets. At 2.9 ounces, it’s also pretty light; a hair too light for my tastes.

A standard clamshell design puts a 1-inch external display out front for checking the time, and for viewing signal strength and alerts, like awaiting messages or missed calls, at a glance. Above the screen is a 1.3-megapixel camera lens with camcorder capability. Inside, the 1.8-inch screen is too small; it could easily stretch to 2 inches. Flipping open the phone instills confidence in the thick joint. The rubber stopper protecting the top of the phone isn’t attractive, but it is effective.

Beneath the screen is a large navigation array that includes two soft keys, a Send and End/Power button, and a Clear button, all surrounding the four-directional toggle with central OK button.

 

The phone’s volume rocker is on the left spine, and on the right you’ll find the camera shutter button and the shared Micro-USB slot and headset jack. That means that you’ll unfortunately need an adapter if you’re planning to listen to music or messages from the t159 through a wired headset. There’s no microSD card slot on the t159, which isn’t necessarily a drawback for this type of entry-level device. Extra storage is always nice to have, but since the hardware design doesn’t place a premium on photos or music, it’s understandable why expandable memory didn’t make the cut.

A proprietary operating system runs the t159 and unfortunately, its oversimplicity isn’t easy on the eye. I know, I know, that sounds counterintuitive, but the default menu screen is plain white and the icons are a little simplistic. The 128×160-pixel QVGA resolution is poor, and it shows in larger lettering and in the icons. You can customize elements like the wallpaper, dialing display, and brightness and backlight times, but you can’t change other graphical elements, or the font size.

 

Features
Placing and receiving calls is the phone’s principle function, and despite the unpolished interface, the address book gives you the space you need to store contact information, including multiple phone numbers, an e-mail address, a birthdate, a note, and even extra fields. You can also add a group ID, set a photo ID, and select from one of 18 ringtones. In addition, you can set the phone to silent mode, with vibration only.

Conclusion
Sometimes you just need a good, solid device for making calls, and the Samsung t159 is it. The humble flip phone doesn’t offer much in the way of style, but it gets the calling basics right, and for the right price. (It also makes you wonder why every phone doesn’t sound this good.) Although extra features like T-Mobile’s visual voice mail and voice commands give the phone more verve, Samsung stopped short of some other helpful mainstays, like a separate headset jack, a larger, higher-resolution screen, and a more nuanced OS menu.
