Smart Phone Novelties at Cyberport

New Androids on the Move: Danger for the Samsung Galaxy S3?
All are fearing the sales start of the Samsung Galaxy S3 end of May. Samsung has learned from Apple a little and presented this hanger from a smart phone in early May 2012 in a big show. But also the other manufacturers were not idle in recent months and have diligently worked on new products. The trend is to ever slimmer smart phones with larger and higher-resolution touchscreens and quad-core processors. Can the new releases reach the Galaxy S3 the water or floats the Samsung smart phone in its own Galaxy? Let’s look at the candidatesLG Optimus 4X HD , Motorola RAZR Maxx , HTC One XL and Huawei Ascend P1.

Conclusion and outlook

In the next time, we will certainly in the CyberBloc one or other of the smart phones presented here undergo a thorough test. Whether the candidates are brave or perhaps do not quite meet the high expectation, you will soon be with us.

In the equipment, there are hardly any big differences in the presented smart phones. The HTC One XL scores against the Galaxy S3 with the LTE standard. The Huawei Ascend P1 is even thinner than the Galaxy, but-just like the Motorola RAZR Maxx-has a lower display resolution. If you’re just thinking about adding a new smart phone, then you should not justlook at the Samsung Galaxy S3 , but also the competitors. In June, you are definitely spoiled for choice. If you still want to feel the smart phone before you buy it and try it out yourself, you should go into one of the six Cyberport stores . If you do not want to do without LTE, it is best to access the HTC One XL or the already available HTC Velocity 4G.

The question many people are concerned with when the Apple iPhone 5 comes and what features will it bring? Should one still wait with the purchase?
