Samsung a837

All in all I really like the phone, and I think it will be a good phone that will last me for a long time, and I am one of those people that is pretty rough on them.

My only complaint is the same as with any other cell phone, and that is you can’t disable the internet feature without losing the ability to send pictures with text messages. I have never needed or even wanted to use the internet on my phone, however the Samsung Rugby has built in GPS, and I would like to use that, but it requires an internet usage plan.

I have had my Samsung a837 (also known as the “Rugby”) for a week now, and I have to say that I like it a lot. It has been very user friendly, and seems to be built to last. I have watched several youtube videos of people dunking them under water, and pulling them out and they work just fine, however I am not willing to try this with mine. it claims to be water resistant and shock resistant and after looking at how it is put together I believe that it could take quite a beating, but I wouldn’t try to use it to take underwater pictures.

Sony Ericsson W580i

The Sony Ericsson W580i is very modern looking. It is a slider phone that has a very sleek, slim and compact design. It is light weight and would fit in the palm of your hands. Mine has shiny light pink color that I simply adore and my husband’s is black, so masculine! There are other colors available aside from this two. There’re red, white, grey and green.

I have been a user of Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone W300i for the last couple of years and I have been very satisfied with it. However, just recently, we have to renew our contract with AT & T and we have the chance to upgrade mobile units free of charge ( after mail-in rebate ). Who wouldn’t grab that opportunity? My husband and I decided to get the W580i, also made my Sony Ericsson and is also a walkman phone. I got it 2 days ago and I just love it. It comes with the stereo headset and the USB wire that can help in connecting the phone to a laptop/PC. I was so at ease using it because it is almost like my old W300i, just better! It has a lot of great features.

It has the walkman player that allows you to enjoy your favorite songs while you are on the move with just one click. It supports Mp3 and AAC formats. You can create playlist, play, rewind, shuffle and even equalize just a like an MP3 Player in your phone! Aside from that, it has a built-in FM radio too! I
should not fail to acknowledge the Shake Control that allows you to change tracks by just shaking your phone, wonderful, isn’t it?! Aside from music, there are also games, video streaming and video viewing. You can also customize themes, screensavers, wallpapers, light effects and ring tones according to your taste.

Just like the usual mobile phones, W580i has the organizer which includes the Alarm clock, Calculator , Calendar , Notepad , Stopwatch and the Timer . As added feature to that, it has the Fitness feature that allows you to monitor calories burned and more. It also have the Messaging feature that allows you to send text messages, picture message and even emails thru your mobile phone. It also allows you to go wireless and hands-free thru its Bluetooth connectivity. You can transfer files, you can talk while driving (though its still not advisable) and listen to music thru this fabulous Bluetooth technology! When it comes to entertainment, this phone will not let you down as well.
But my favorite added and improved features are the 2 megapixel camera, that has up to 4x digital xoom and video functions as well.
Others
It just take 2 hours to fully charge the phone. And its been actively on use for the past 2 days, because of calls, downloads and stuff but the battery life is not even half.
Also, I have to lower down the volume because, it gets pretty loud sometimes.
Cons
I don’t like the keypad much. But who cares, I seldom use it. All the functions you need are in front and you don’t need the keypad much, unless you text a lot and you need to input new contact.
In conclusion
I may fail to cover all the cool features of this phone but I assure you that in the 2 days time, I can assure that this is one cool phone. I just hope that durability is not sacrificed. (well it’s a sony ericsson so I expect it to be durable).

Nokia N81 8GB

All in all, the Nokia N81 is a fairly balanced package, offering Nokia’s fine engineering and some decent features such as 8GB of storage and N-Gage support. Calls are clear and signal reception is good. Battery life is average, especially considering the multimedia capabilities. If you can get this phone on a reduced contract or cash price, go for it. It offers a lot of the features of its more expensive counterparts like the Nokia N95 or N96 but without the hefty price tag.

The phone has 8GB of built in flash memory but lacks a memory card slot that seems limiting to people who like to carry a large selection of media around with them. It handles music, video playback and photographs pretty well, but the phone does tend to slow down as you start filling up the memory. Also, it comes with a meager 2MP camera, which is disappointing since most camera phones these days include at least a 3.2MP camera, but this is a minor quibble. The phone is also rather chunky, and feels uncomfortable in your pocket, requiring a slipcase or belt clip instead.

The N81 offers support for Nokia’s revived N Gage games, and implements the feature pretty well thanks to dedicated gaming keys on the dual slider and a large, bright screen. My only problem with N Gage is the exorbitant price of their games but I’m sure they’ll drop as the format becomes more popular. You can purchase games from Nokia or just enter N Gage into a search engine like Google or Yahoo and you’ll find plenty of games to download, some of which are free. Internet on the go is a welcome reality thanks to 3G and Wi-Fi enabled connections, but it is commonly difficult to navigate and view web pages on any cell phone screen due to the size restrictions of the screen and input via a small directional keypad, so its application is quite limited. You can also use the phone as a 3G modem to connect your computer or laptop to the Internet wirelessly while on the go.

Asus M930

Talking about multimedia it got windows media player 10, but audio and video quality is only average. The bundled earpiece is also average. For wifi its great thing, I could surf, stream videos. the picture I had taken from is pretty decent, but video recording is of poor quality and it has got a limit upto 1minute. Battery life is poor last for only a day with wifi on. The price was my concern. I have invested it for 28k Rupees. But its an average phone, you should try it.
The internal display is 2.6 inch screen with a camera for video conferencing. The screen is small comparing the total layout, which is slight disappointment. The qwerty keypad is great and comfortable with D-pad on the left. Also soft keys are placed edge of the keypad which is also easier to locate for me. The interface of the M930 is Windows Mobile. the OS is good and works perfect for me, it has 450 Mhz processing power, 64MB RAM and 256 MB of internal storage. Talking about the gprs, you must change to an another browser for easier browsing. The internet explorer is slow. Suddenly I realize that the device has office suite which only reads, but cant edit. The office suite contains pdf, word , ppt, excel viewers.
2.5 mm jack is provided for headset which is slight disappoint for me because I uses 3.5 mm jack usually. Mini usb slot is provided for data transferring. the phone charging is also used through this port. The camera and speaker are placed close to close which result in greater looks. There is no flash for this camera.

At first the phone looks like ordinary phone having 2 inch display. The keys are good in the external. But the navigation keys are little stiff. The camera keys and volume keys is slight stiff for me which is placed right side of the handset.

I wasn’t aware of any Asus mobile phones in the market. Then I knew Asus M930 is a good business phone the phone is like nokia communicator. Once I open the package it contains lots of stuff. The package contains Stereo Headset, USB Cable, Software CD & Windows CD, and a Charger. The phone is as nokia communicator, either you can use it as ordinary phone in your hand or feel the inside by opening it. By opening it it has got qwerty keyboard and larger screen.

Cons I don’t like the keypad much. But who cares, I infrequently way it. All the functions you longing are in front and you don’t demand the keypad much, unless you subject a lot and you wish to input untouched contact. In conclusion I may fail to cover all the gelid features of this phone but I confirm you that in the 2 days tour, I can ok that this is one snappy phone. I just reward that durability is not sacrificed. ( wrapped tight it’s a sony ericsson so I realize it to exemplify durable ).
