Previous Flagship Phones are the Best Midrange Phones

There are already countless articles about the best flagship phones in the market including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, and HTC One, but let us face it; not all of us can afford those phones.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom a Viable Product?

There was some debate on the merits of Samsung’s latest announced product, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, the moment people got word that the Korean manufacturer was going for a smaller, telephony-capable variant of its much-maligned Galaxy Camera. Branding issues, aesthetic concerns, and speculation over the device’s actual utility are all part of the discussion. It’s a confusing product, no doubt about it, and the future doesn’t look good for this ambitious cameraphone.

Cameraphones are things of the past

Cameraphones used to be a valid segment in the mobile phone market, back when do-it-all smartphones weren’t the norm and feature phones ruled the day. Sony, then known as Sony Ericsson, really hit the cameraphone concept right out of the ballpark with CyberShot-branded phones that looked good, were pocketable, and had decent camera sensors for superb photography.

QWERTY’s back: Is the BlackBerry Q10 worth it?

Before Apple dominated the smartphone market, BlackBerry was the king of mobile handsets. Back then, touchscreens were rare, and the alphanumeric “qwerty” keyboard of Blackberry phone was the industry standard for input and navigation. With the emergence of iPhones and other touchscreen-equipped devices from Android, the QWERTY lost its appeal and functionality: it would be unwise to waste the face of a mobile device with a permanent keyboard fixture. The end became apparent for the once-loved mobile phone keyboard when virtual keyboards evolved to become more tactile and intuitive, giving rise to haptic feedback, type-and-swipe, and auto-correct features, among others. But with BlackBerry’s latest attempt to salvage its brand, we see new smartphones sporting the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. One of these devices is the Q10, a full-fledged smartphone running the new BlackBerry OS 10. With the lukewarm reception of BlackBerry’s first OS 10 gadget, the Z10, the future of the Q10 is highly questionable. Is this device really worth the time, money, and attention? Does adding a full QWERTY keyboard enough to convince everyone to bite into the “other fruit” of the smartphone market? Read more to find out.

The Blackberry: A Septuagenarian’s Review

The following is a review written by a 74-year-old Blackberry user who is quite convinced that her smart phone is the greatest, for reasons that are both practical and heartwarming.

Hello, dears. My name is Mrs. Katherine Andersson; but my friends call me Kathy. I have just turned 74 on my last birthday and I feel great about that. I am writing this review of The Blackberry because I heard on the news that the makers of my phone, whose company is called Research in Motion (RIM), are in serious financial trouble, and I guess I want to help them convince people that their product is very good. I also learned that they are from Canada, and I have many Canadian friends whom I play canasta with, and I know they are good people.
