Relevance: 85%      Posted on: October 22, 2014

Microsoft may have totally eradicated the Nokia brand from their smartphone lineup, but the Finnish company is far from dead. In fact they’ve announced that the Android-friendly version of their popular navigation app, HERE for Android, is now available for broader range of Android smartphones. HERE for Android was initially launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy Gear S and was made available to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users through Samsung’s own app store. Fast-forward to today and Nokia seems ready enough to venture outside of Samsung devices as they release the software in public for other Android smartphone users to enjoy. Nokia’s…

So aside from the LTE model of the Galaxy S2, Samsung also announced three new Bada OS smartphones -- the Samsung Wave 3, Wave M and Wave Y with the Wave 3 definitely being the flagship Bada handset.

Are HTC phones any good without Android?

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: July 26, 2009

In my years of reviewing phones, I've only tried two HTC phones. One is the Windows Mobile powered HTC Touch Dual and the Android-powered HTC Dream. Before that, HTC was way down my list of phone brands. Until Android came. Today, the HTC Magic is probably one of the most sought-after smartphones locally (although the price kinda ruined all that excitement). The phone was also the subject of focus between telco-rivals Smart and Globe. Yet, I can't shake the fact feeling that all these attention is probably due to Google's Android OS rather than the device itself. This brings me…

Web hack can factory reset Samsung phones

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: September 26, 2012

If you're using a Samsung smartphone with TouchWiz including the Galaxy S2 and some Galaxy S3 models, be aware that there's a web hack that can trigger a factory reset on your beloved smartphone. The web hack is actually a malicious code that is hiding inside a web page and gets triggered when visited using the stock browser (except Google Chrome) of a TouchWiz-based phone. The malicious code then spawns the dialer and enters a bad USSD code with the sole purpose of nuking your device back to its factory default. To give you a refresher on USSD codes, one…

We already have Android phones and tablets, and recently, Google went into watches with Android Wear and has also announced an Open Automobile Alliance for Android cars. What's next?

Got a sample SmartBro Prepaid Kit last week from Smart for review. I was about to buy my own kit before this got in so I'm putting this one out to the stress test until I finally make the purchase.

Is Google worried about Samsung’s Android dominance?

google samsung collide

Android belongs to Google, and is basically free. Samsung is going on a killing spree with its Galaxy line of devices running Android, and is continuing to do so in almost all fronts. As a result, ut poses a threat to Android itself because of Google's mobile-ad business. In case you didn't know, Samsung sells about 40% of all Android phones in the world. From the company's perspective, that's a good thing; but for Google, that is a whole other story.  Andy Rubin, Android's head, praised Samsung for the things that it brought upon the ecosystem, but subsequently, he also…
