Apple has been fighting a battle against Samsung in the court over claims that the Android smartphone maker has been using Apple ideas included in to the iPhone and iPad.
We are not sure whether these claims are true or not. But, Samsung has been manufacturing great devices which were able to attract a large chunk of consumers in the market. The Samsung Galaxy S III, the company’s latest smartphone, made use of several ideas from the iPhone, including the voice-activated assistant Siri.
Samsung Galaxy S III has become a dominant player in the market. For the past two Galaxy S versions, the carriers have each demanded custom tweaks to the size and features of the phone. But with the Galaxy S III, the device’s name and features are almost equal when it was released on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon.
- Performance: Two gigabytes or RAM is what laptops used to offer a few years ago, and now the same amount is available in the Galaxy S III. The memory, along with the 1.5 GHz dual-processor, ripped through each task and app I use at the smartphone. This smartphone never suffered a crash or technical hitch. Apart from the internal storage space, the phone also has the capability to accommodate a 64 GB microSDHC memory card.
- Camera: The handset has a built-in camera of 8 mega pixel and is considered as one of the best smartphones shooters available in the market. Similar to the HTC One X, the Galaxy S III has the ability to shoot in burst mode and has little shutter lag. The 1080p video recording offered by the camera is also good.
- Battery life: The handset has been integrated with a powerful battery that gives power to the phone for a week and this is something that is rarely found in Android phones.
- Buttons: The earlier Android smartphones use to have a line of buttons at the bottom of the screen, but Samsung took a new spin with the layout of the Galaxy S III. The gadget has been fitted with one physical button that acts much like the iPhone’s home button. It is flanked by a back and menu buttons that only light up when the screen is touched.
- Software tweaks: Samsung has made a variety of alterations to the Android 4.0 interface that includes many handy shortcuts in the notifications pulldown menu. The Android 4.0 phone will allow its users to set different audio volume levels for the phone’s ringtone and email notifications.
- Screen: The Galaxy S III has been attributed with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED that produces crisp images within its 1,280×720-pixel resolution. He screen has been protected with the new Gorilla Glass 2 covering that was very responsive. However, it is a bit disappointing that sometimes the screen take a little longer time to adjust to the sunlight.
- S Voice: Samsung has included S Voice in to its Galaxy SIII and it is quite similar to the Apple’s Siri on the iPhone. Double tapping of the home button allows users to speak voice commands such as getting navigation direction, making a call, getting a weather report and sending an email or text. The voice recognition is blemished.
- Keyboard: The Samsung’s keyboard is imbibed with default setting that often auto corrects the wrong word, and thus at times it makes typing a painful experience.
- Samsung Galaxy SIII doesn’t have Dropbox freebies on some carriers: Unlike Sprint and T-Mobile versions, the AT&T and Verizon Galaxy S III’s do not come with 50 GB of Dropbox storage for nearly two years.

BlackBerry 10 mobile phones are set to be released in 2013 and as the time of its presentation draws near, they are coming across all sorts of BlackBerry models that might or might not be in the BlackBerry ten series. As all of us know by now that the BlackBerry 10 series will include a full QWERTY handset and a full touch handset as well. So, what may be the next? A slider device sounds like the best idea and there are some pictures of the BlackBerry 10 slider available on the Internet.
There have been a number of buzzes about the BlackBerry 10 series, but the CEO of RIM confirmed the launch of a touch screen and full keyboard version of BlackBerry 10 in 2013. However, a slider handset might follow up these handsets. There were rumors about a BlackBerry 10 slider mobile phone by the name of BlackBerry Milan. However, the latest rumor about the BlackBerry Milan is that its hardware design was scrapped by RIM. The hopes of BlackBerry 10 slider are grim at the present time.
The diehard fans of BlackBerry will surely hope that the slider factor remains on RIM’s mind so that they can enjoy a sliding BlackBerry in the 10 series as well. In March this year, an idea tool from BlackBerry emerged that was dubbed BlackBerry Blade. This tool got plenty of attention from the BlackBerry community and those who truly support BlackBerry. However, the BlackBerry Blade was also left behind because it was featuring the design of BlackBerry 7, which is a sizable No for BlackBerry 10 series as RIM does not design to add any traditional menu and back buttons on the BlackBerry 10 series.
For the BlackBerry 10 slider, John Anastasiadis executed an angular keyboard, which is stylish and distinctive looking. Since, RIM was recently granted a patent for this specific type of angular keyboard, so John put it to work and added it to the BlackBerry 10 slider’s design. As enticing as it looks, there is still no possibility that the BlackBerry fans will receive a chance to punch keys on this angular keyboard. In the design for BlackBerry 10 slider that was shared by John, there is a track pad between the T and Y keys on the sliders keyboard. As most of you will know that in the event you hook up a PlayBook to a mouse then you can receive a cursor on the screen, which offered limited movements.
Maybe, RIM will be more fully change to the BlackBerry 10 OS and therefore, will make it track pad friendly in order to increase the ease of usage and to promote one-handed ease on the physical keyboard of BlackBerry 10 slider. However, this is all something that they will have to wait and watch because only time will tell what RIM will do and what will become of the BlackBerry 10 slider. However, the query to be asked here is that will Blackberry be able to regain its lost market share?
