BlackBerry Bold 9900
The most stylish BlackBerry to date, the Bold 9900 has a spacious keyboard and a durable glass-covered screen, a metal band around the contour, an optical trackpad and – for the first time – a touchscreen.
A wide range of supported networks, a 5-megapixel camera and excellent battery life also speak in this phone’s favor.
BlackBerry Torch 9810
A single-core 1.2 GHz processor and a high-resolution screen are now joined by a faster-than-a-speeding-bullet Operating System. And if that’s not enough, it also features beautiful design, improved physical keyboard, the ability to capture 720p video and 768MB of RAM.

MetroPCS carries a vast range of the latest and greatest wireless phones. This article describes the various new models and offers a quick comparison of some of the newest models offered on our website.
For those on-the- go professionals who need to be connected to the internet at all times, RIM has introduced the classy and professional looking high-end Smartphone, the new BlackBerry Bold 9900. The real improvement from the previous Blackberries is that the 9900 is a touch phone. Being able to reach up with your thumb and select menu items instead of using the TrackPad saves a lot of time. The other pluses of this phone is the best display of all blackberry phones, excellent signal performance, clarity and quality of call is good though volume is a bit of an issue compared to the 9900, ease of sending and receiving emails, the facility to add up to 10 different email accounts, integrated social networking apps in the contact app and messaging functions, making it easier to communicate with your circle of family, friends and colleagues. However the battery life is a bit short and if you forget to charge the battery at night, then in a couple of hours the phone will be dead. Additionally the screen is not made for consuming video and I would not recommend watching a movie on it.
The Huawei M835 is an affordable Android Smartphone with features similar to other Android phones, including 3G data, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, 3-megapixel camera, video capture, 3.5mm audio jack, and memory card slot. However, its battery life is a bit low and it has limited support for email and social networking, which is quite a serious downside.
LG Optimus M / Optimus C is also an Android phone with a large glass touchscreen, 3-megapixel auto-focus camera, video capture, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, 3.5mm audio jack, and memory card slot. Battery life is about 7 hours talk time. The phone has impressive apps which are very easy to use, though its internet is quite slow. You can access your emails and stay in touch with you family and friends through the social networks.
The Samsung Freeform III is a subsequent release to the Freeform II, being thinner and lighter with more rounded edges. The basic features are very similar to the previous model, including full QWERTY text keyboard, 1.3-megapixel camera, memory card slot, music player, stereo Bluetooth, and voice control. Like its predecessors it is an excellent messaging phone with excellent call quality. It is also possible to use email and the social networks.
Another phone available at MetroPCS is the affordable CDMA messaging phone, the Kyocera Loft / Torino S2300. Other features are similar to the Sanyo 2700, which are a QVGA display, QWERTY keyboard, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and voice control. Battery time is low with 4 hours of talk time. It is a good phone for seniors who just want to call and message as it does not support emails or the social network.
What does one need in a dream phone? Certain basic facilities like making calls, clicking pictures and being in touch with online and social circuit. The new HTC myTouch 4G Slide is all that one wants in a dream phone or smart phone. It has a wonderfully 3.7 inch large LCD display which brings out the life like colors. The images are clear and therefore are not pixilated. The strength of the signal whether you are indoors or outdoors is quite strong. The sound quality of HTC myTouch 4G Slide is like another feather in its cap. Its sound capabilities are good hence hearing is not a major concern even in the busiest of places.
With the features like HDR, the image quality too is excellent. It has in-built software called Instgram which takes care of the images and its in-built filters are excellent for image processing. Though there is not much that you can do while actually taking the picture but can improvise on an existing image with brilliant outcomes.
With regards to the life of a battery, it is obvious that the more you use the more it will decrease. Hence, make sure that you need to use internet to a minimum to enable the battery life to increase and give you more. Its unique Qwerty keypad gives you an option of using the phone for a variety of official as well as personal purposes. It has a quick interface that does not test your patience and make you wait for the applications to load. All in all, it is a device which fulfills all your expectations from a smart phone and can be rated as a mobile device worth its price as it contains an admirable lot of features.
Apple iPhone 4 (GSM), Samsung Galaxy S, HTC Droid Incredible 2, RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 and LG Vu – what is common among them? With so many incredible smart phones making the rounds, it is surely difficult to choose the best. We provide an update on various features of some of the best smart phones in order to help you out.
All the phones are touch screen based and extremely light with Apple iPhone being the smallest in terms of its dimension. It comes with a nice LCD display screen which is 3.5″ wide and possesses a memory of 32 GB. In comparison, other smart phones tend to pale in this regard. Another important feature for navigation is the GPS or the location finder facility which is incredible in almost all the phone except the LG Vu. Bluetooth and a USB port are common to all the phones but Wi-Fi is a feature which is not available on the LG Vu handset.
Image quality and productivity:
In terms of image or video quality, the best bet would be the HTC Droid Incredible 2 as it has an 8 MP camera and offers an amazing 720p HD video recording. Except the LG Vu, none of the phone supports the facility of watching live TV on your mobile handset. With regards to productivity features, all the smart phones have a facility of alarm calculator, voice memo and calendar. Blackberry Torch and LG Vu are the only ones offering a To-do list feature.
Music and games:
Though music player is a pert of every phone, the head jack system is present in all the phones except LG Vu with additional features like the radio available only in the HTC Droid Incredible 2 handset. Games too are a part of every smart phone with only RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 and LG Vu supporting games developed on Java (J2ME) platform.
