Samsung Galaxy S III vs. iPhone 4s From

Mobile News iPhone 4S vs. Samsung Galaxy S III NEWS ANALYSIS: The Apple iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III are both fast, savvy, feature-rich, can follow instructions and access hundreds of thousands of apps. A few features, though, set each apart. The Samsung Galaxy S III will be available from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular by mid-summer, and an Apple iPhone 5 is a candidate for all five carriers by the fall. T-Mobile has dropped lots of hints that it will be able to support an LTE-enabled iPhone and US Cellular, in December, turned down the iPhone 4S, saying it was waiting for a Long Term Evolution version. Without the hassle of switching carriers or the need to wait out a contract, then, a number of people could find themselves debating between the next iPhone (whatever Apple decides to call it) and the fast-selling Samsung Galaxy S III. While the next iPhone is expected to feature a larger display—at least 4 inches on the diagonal—and LTE connectivity—there’s really no telling what Apple is preparing as its response to the number of strong Android offerings that have come out in recent weeks, including the HTC Evo 4G LTE, HTC One X and Sony Xperia ion. If you’re considering a jump from an older iPhone to the Galaxy S III, or from an Android phone to an iPhone, here’s where, in the most straightforward terms, things currently stand: Apple iPhone 4S Dimensions: 4.5 by 2.31 by 0.37 inches Weight: 4.9 ounces Display: 3.5-inch (on the diagonal) widescreen multi-touch display with a 960 by 640 pixel resolution. Camera: 8 megapixels, HD video recording, LED flash, autofocus, VGA-quality front-facing camera, photo and video geotagging. Operating System: iOS 5 Pricing and Capacity: 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299, 64GB for $399 (with two-year contract) 4G: No NFC: No   Samsung Galaxy S III Dimensions: 5.38 by 2.78 by 0.34 inches Weight: 4.69 ounces Display: 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1280 by 720 Camera: 8 megapixels, HD video recording, auto focus with flash and zero shutter lag, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera with HD recording, zero shutter lag Operating System: Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Pricing and Capacity: 16GB and 32GB versions are available; pricing varies by carrier, but most are selling the 16GB version for $199 with a two-year contract. Pricing varies more for the 32GB model. Sprint sells it for $249.99, T-Mobile for $329.99. 4G: Yes NFC: Yes Apple also has the largest ecosystem around, now with 650,000 apps in the App Store compared to 500,000 Android apps in the Google Play market. Clearly, neither store is going to leave a person wanting—those are incredible figures—but there is something to be said for developer’s support of Apple. It seems we more often hear of popular iOS apps finally being created for Android—Instagram and, more recently, Flipboard come to mind—than the reverse. Another consideration is enterprise approval. With companies increasingly supporting bring your own device (BYOD) policies, the iPhone is an incredibly common business device these days and considered more secure than many Android handsets—though that thinking is changing. SAP, for example, has said it’s working on a solution that will enable it to include Android devices among its sanctioned iPhones and BlackBerry handsets. Samsung has taken this matter into its own hands and created a distinction called Samsung Approved for the Enterprise, or SAFE, that endows a device with not only enterprise-ready features but enough security options to make SAFE phones appropriate, according to Samsung, for even regulated industries such as government and health care. In an enterprise-friendly head-to-head, the SAFE-branded Galaxy S III would come out ahead of the iPhone 4S. Also in the Samsung’s favor are its NFC-based capabilities—it can do cool things like pass a photo to another Galaxy S III handset when the two are tapped, use Google Wallet (depending on the carrier) and program Samsung’s TecTile stickers to do your bidding. While mobile payments have been the focus of near field communication in the United States, there’s a lot more it’s capable of, as Galaxy S III users (and others) are already figuring out. Both phones can be controlled by voice. The Galaxy S III’s S Voice can be made to control some apps—turning on or off WiFi, setting the alarm and creating and posting a Tweet, for example. S Voice can also find answers to your questions—though it won’t tell you them aloud, as Apple’s Siri will. That is, when Siri hears or understands correctly. Still, even with Siri’s foibles, and before the Siri upgrades Apple will launch with iOS 6 in its next phone—she’ll be better tied to information about restaurants and sports, among other improvements—the iPhone bests the Galaxy on this front. Each phone has a lot more features than are listed here, as well as details that detract from or recommend it. But smartphones are far more than their lists of specifications. We love or regret them based on details like the placement of buttons and whether we find them convenient, how warm the phone gets during a long call, how quickly it responds, how intuitive the layout is to navigate and really the degree to which the phone’s a pleasure to use—which is personal. The most dramatic difference between these phones, in my opinion, is their size. A 4.8-inch display isn’t for everyone, though no doubt some users will be thrilled with the GS III as a gaming interface or a screen for an in-flight movie. If you can, get to a store, have a look, hold them—a lot of camera features are great, but more important, to me, is not inadvertently hitting the volume button each time I turn on the phone—and consider how and what you’d use them for each day. Which phone is the best phone is personal.

Will Nintendo's Wii U Fail?

Recently since E3 there has been a number of opinions on the Wii U whether it will do well or if it will in fact fail. First of all let me state the Wii U is the first home platform from this eighth generation of gaming, IMHO Microsoft's and Sony's next generation consoles will not hurt the Wii U. Nintendo is generally Nintendo's downfall, this has been proven by sells of the first Wii console which sold as of January 12 2012 94 million units worldwide, what hurt Nintendo was third party support or the lack of third party developers making games for the system. The Wii was geared to a more casual gamer to get people who never picked up a joystick or a controller to do such with games like Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit etc......which actually got Older people and non-gamers to game. It seems though Nintendo forgot about the hardcore although there are some hardcore titles on the Wii like Zelda Twilight Princess. With the Wii U if Nintendo can get the hardcore audience with true hardcore titles and continue to cater to that casual audience that bought and played Wii the Wii U will be a success.

The Last Of Us -{PS3}-

The Last Of Us will be the game that defines the PS3 IMHO, it seems them Boys at Naughty Dog are really pushing the Hardware of the PS3. From every Demo or Trailer I've seen this will be an excellent game. Sometimes I notice in games when you have a partner (AI) they generally get in the way, looking at the gameplay of this it seems like Naughty Dog got it right. Hopefully this will please the gaming community as I am hyping it. E3 Game Demo Link Added.

Gravity Rush PS Vita.

This game is a great mixture of RPG, Action, Japanese Anime. Starting you are Kat, some reason your memory is lost and you have what they call a Gravity cat whom helps you defy Gravity. Through a main story line and various side missions this game will keep you interested IMHO. The only downside to this game with some of the side quests seem unnecessary,I give this game 4 out of 5.
