Take a quick look at where phones have evolved to. Now you can do so much that you never could before! Everything you could possibly need is right there at the touch of your hands. Documents can read; emails written and websites browsed seamlessly. The technology advancement today would not be possible if it weren’t for one amazing invention; the smartphone!

We rely so much on our smartphones from day-to-day tasks that without them, I’m not sure how some of us would cope. Let’s take a look at two smartphones that have really caught my attention. The Apple iPhone and the Windows 7 Phone. They both offer great reliability, ease of use, and many things others can’t compete with. But which one is the best? Unfortunately, I can’t answer that! It’s going to be up to you as the reader to make that decision.

First off, let’s start with the Apple iPhone. It’s a great device that offers a lot to the consumer. The iPhone works on the iOS of course and it has some flaws as well as some pretty cool capabilities! Some of the flaws with the software is the inability for complete customization, and that to me is a HUGE flaw! But, to give them some credit, Apple hasn’t completely let me down. I love my iPhone and I would be weary to trade it for another device. It has served me well, unlike my AT&T service. Another thing I do not like about my iPhone is the absence of adobe flash! This makes watching web videos very irritating. Besides some minor difficulties with the operating system, I give the iPhone a personal Google+!

Let’s talk about the Windows 7 Phone! My friend gave me exclusive access to his HTC Windows phone and I loved it! I had a HTC before my iPhone and I loved it. The Windows phone offers a lot of customization and it’s super fun to use. Had a blast using this phone and the marketplace was awesome!

The prices for these phones are pretty comparative. They both cost good money but if you ask me, they are both worth it. If I could own both I certainly would.

iPad 2 Vs. Galaxy Tab

leave a comment »

 

My first post consisted of my personal opinions of the Windows PC, which I preferred, and the Apple MacBook Pro. I apologize if anyone reading this got offended by my harsh criticism of the Apple Mac! I was merely throwing some light down an extremely unlit corridor and for that, I’m sorry. Now let’s get to the most important topic of the day! The famous and widely successful iPad 2 Vs. the Galaxy Tab!

What can I say about the iPad 2? First of all, I haven’t personally tried out the second generation iPad, except in the store of course, but it does not seem that much different than the first generation. Besides a couple of slight tweaks, what is the difference? I noticed the cool white color and odd new shape. That definitely caught my attention. What also caught my attention was the hefty price tag! Did you know that the iPad 2 is expensive? Oh yes, extremely expensive! And the sad part is, many people mistake the iPad tablets for an actual computer. I hate when people do this for tablets of any kind! They get them for college or whatever and they’re like “Why can’t my tablet do powerpoint, word, and other critical things my computer can? Anyways the iPad 2 starts at $499 for the 16GB with only WiFi. That means wherever you don’t have a wireless router, you can’t connect to the internet, so that means if you’re a business person, you will need the 3G capability. And that will increase the price of the device to $629 for WiFi + 3G, with only 16GB of storage. But before you jump all over me for exposing the price of this thing, let me tell you why you should buy one. First, if you love the iPod touch, then you will love the iPad. They literally took the iPod and made it bigger! Let’s not forget about the apps, yes the hundreds and thousands of apps! That’s another reason to buy.

Now let’s look at the Galaxy Tab. It’s run on Android 10.1 and is very fast! And it supports Adobe Flash! Something the iPad 2 simply can’t do! That’s one of the reasons I might purchase the Galaxy Tab. The price of the tablet is competitive to the iPad. For a 16GB, you could spend the same amount and buy an iPad. Or, you could buy the Galaxy Tab and have faster speeds, smooth Android operating system, and not give into Apples feat of world domination!
