Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS Lite S5302 Review

Samsung, The top contender in the Mobile Phone market has rolled out the Dual SIM version of it's popular Android model 'The Samsung Galaxy Y', The Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS Lite S5302. This phone has the dual SIM option and is dual active, which means two SIM's can be used alongside each other.

The Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS packs an 832MHz processor with 296MB of RAM and 3GB of Internal Storage. There is an external memory card slot which can be expanded upto 32GB. The phone has a resolution of 240x320 Pixels and has a PPI of 132. PPI refers to Per Pixel Intensity and decides the clarity and sharpness of a screen. 132 is pretty low when compared to other models. The screen is 2.8 Inches wide which is pretty low. 

Galaxy Y DUOS runs on Android Gingerbread OS and has a 1200mAh battery. The phone has a 2MP Camera just like the Samsung Galaxy Y.

Pros:
------
  • Dual SIM Phone.
  • Dual Active Phone.
  • Gingerbread OS
Cons:
-------
  • Very low PPI around 132. Which means less display clarity and sharpness.
  • 1200 mAh battery for a dual active android phone won't last much.
  • Price of 6.9K, a bit on the upper side.

Nokia reduces Windows phones prices

Nokia, after a fall in it's shares has reduced the rate of the older Windows Phones models like Lumia 800 by around 15%, and other Windows Phones. All Nokia Phones now are expected to have a fall in Prices very soon due to fall in Nokia Shares. 

We believe that Nokia should concentrate more on Phones below the 10k Range, Like the Nokia Asha 311 which was released very recently. This we feel is the only way we feel Nokia could bounce back to being a top contender.


Nokia Asha 311 - The best deal from Nokia | Buy Online | Best Deals

If you are planning to buy a touch screen phone under 7k, you should definitely have a look at Nokia Asha 311. The phone priced close to 6.5k has some features that would put even some android touchscreen phones in the 10k range to shame. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone who is looking for a great deal at a price close to Rs 7000. 

The Phone packs a 1GHz processor which runs on Series 40 OS. Asha 311 has a 3-inch screen with 262 k colors and a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. Gorilla glass is another feature that makes this phone stand out as other phones at this price doesn't have it. A 3.2MP camera that can record 640x480 pixel videos, adds to it's amazing features. The phone doesn't feature a front camera.

Asha 311 has a 1110mAh Li-Ion battery that can aid 14 hours of talktime and 6 hours of 3G internet usage. The phone has a standby time of around 700 hours. The phone has Wi-Fi as well.

Now let us take a look at why you should consider buying this phone and why you shouldn't

Pros:

  • Best Price for a phone with such amazing features.
  • Good battery backup.
  • Decent display size and clarity.
  • Good battery backup.
  • Wi-Fi and 3G.
  • Good looks and Light weight.
  • Better camera than rivals at the same price range.
Cons:
  • Runs Symbian 40 OS which is outdated , S60 would have been better.
  • No front camera for video calling.
We would definitely recommend this phone to anyone with a budget between 5k-7k, as this best deal you can possibly get. The closest competitors for this phone are Samsung Wave s5380 and the Samsung Galaxy Y. The Nokia Asha 311 is available online at 6,550/- and is a steal at that price.

Fake emails claiming to be from ESPN - Be aware

An hour ago i received an email address claiming to be from the ESPN Office, from this email id reginak@research.haifa.ac.il , which the moment i saw knew was a fake. The email had no body and had an attachment a file called ESPN.docx. I opened the document using google docs and saw a 3 page document, I will list out a few parts from the email,

DEAR EMAIL OWNER,
THIS E-MAIL IS TO OFFICIALLY INFORM YOU THAT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND PRONOUNCED AS THE LUCKY WINNER OF £1,000,000.00 GBP, IN THE 2012 AWARD BY (ESPN STAR CRICKET DRAW PROMOTION UK) WISHES TO CONGRATULATE YOU OVER YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS SUCCESS IN THIS FINANCIAL BAILOUT PLAN. YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS EMERGED AS ONE OF THE TEN FINAL RECIPIENTS OF A CASH GRANT.
and later on they ask you everything from your name, to your email and your password. So we confirmed it was a fake and then we went on to the ESPN Cricinfo website and went to the feed back page, and i saw what they had written there,

PLEASE NOTE: If you have recently received an e-mail from a party claiming to be ESPN Cricket or ESPN Star Cricket, these e-mails are fraudulent messages and should be deleted.

So i wrote in to ESPN and told them about it and offered to forward the email if they wanted me to. So friends, if you ever receive such an email, be sure it is a fake and NEVER reveal your personal information or password to such people.

Why Anna University May/June 2012 results might be getting late

The B.E. results have been getting a lot late than usual and for currently pass-out 2012 batch the wait is getting too long. The results have been already published for students with no standing arrear papers upto the eigth semester, but those of them having arrears upto 7th semester will have to wait with the others to know their results.

Now a few days back The Hindu website online reported about a paper leak of the EDC(Electronic Device and Circuits) paper a day before the exam was conducted on June 29th. Now the EDC exam has been rescheduled to be held on July 31st. Students of Computer Science, Information Technology, Electronics and Communication and Bio-medical Engineering had taken the exam in June. 

We are not sure if this is holding back the results but if it is then it could be a very long wait as results would only be published after July. If that's not the case then results could get published in a week as the B.E. Part Time Results May 2012 were just announced a few days back. Whatever the reason maybe we wish the university come up and announce the results soon as a lot of students are waiting for their results so that they can get into a job.

Flipkart increases free shipping limit to 300Rs Purchases

The Indian online retail giant Flipkart.com has increased the limit of free delivery from Rs 200 to Rs 300.  Now if a user wants to buy an item which is under Rs 300 he will have to add an extra Rs 30 in-order to get it delivered. This we feel is a bad move by Flipkart, which is still our favorite online shopping website as they might lose customers to other contenders who offer free online delivery for the same items that are under 300. We are of the opinion that it could have at least been 250 instead of a sudden 50% hike.

I logged into my facebook account to see that my friends in Chennai and a friend in Tirunelveli, down south had the same problem. The reason for the blackout is still unknown.

Comments have been pouring in on the official Airtel India page, where some have expressed their displeasure on the incident. A comment goes like,


"what the hell is happening to you guys..?? a total blackout..! this is so shitty to have happened.. all of us are affected by this.. people arr not able to get or make any calls to their family even.. rage is building up here.. once this problem gets solved.. i'm sure lots of customers would like to have a word with your customer care officials... trust me you are not gonna like it.."

Don't use 'Verify your account' app on Facebook

The Secure and Verify request i received from two friends.
This is a kind reminder to everyone on Facebook not to use any application boasting to verify your account. Facebook verifies your account only by confirming your mobile number and they don't have any application for the same.

The verify your account and 'Secure and Verify' application takes you to a non-Facebook page, which is potentially unsafe as they can get details from your profile and you are also at the risk of losing your profile. They also send invitations to everyone on your Facebook profile.We are unsure whether Facebook has reviewed this application.

You can officially verify your facebook account with the help of this page at https://www.facebook.com/help/verify .

Samsung releases Galaxy Y dual SIM phone

The Galaxy Y DUOS dual Sim Android mobile Phone
The Samsung Mobile just after releasing the Galaxy Ace DUOS has now went on to bring out the Galaxy Y DUOS. Which is the dual Sim version of the popular budget Android phone, The Samsung Galaxy Y. The mobile has all the features available in the Galaxy Y with the dual sim standby mode thrown in as well. The Galaxy Y DUOS packs a 3.2MP camera compared to Galaxy Y and also packs more RAM than its predecessor. The SIM cannot be used simultaneously as it has only a standby mode and not an active mode.

The Galaxy Y is priced close to Rs 9300(Flipkart on 4-3-2011) and is worth a buy if you are looking for a decent Android phone with dual SIM capablity.

Buy The Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS online at Flipkart.


The New Samsung Galaxy Ace DUOS preview

Galaxy Ace DUOS
The new Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos is the latest addition to the Samsung Galaxy Series and also the brother of the older version of the Galaxy Ace. The Ace Duos packs an 800Mhz processor Qualcomm Processor which packs Gingerbread Anroid 2.3 OS. The Ace Duos comes with a 3MP camera while the older version had a 5MP camera. The screen size is 3.5 inches, same as the old Ace.

The visible difference between Galaxy Ace DUOS and Galaxy Ace s5830 is that the DUOS version packs a more powerful battery(1650mAh) compared to a 1350mAh battery. The Galaxy Ace DUOS is now priced at 13899/- and is not worth it.

I suggest you spend the 13k to buy a Motorola Defy or maybe a Sony Walkman live which gives you more at the same price.

Best economical Android mobile phone in India

Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
We believe that when you spend your hard earned money into buying something, it should be worth what you are paying, So we are here to help you buy an Android mobile under Rs18000 which provide you the best value for your money and we zeroed in on three mobiles. The Motorola Defy Plus, The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. My requirements are Android 2.3, A 1Ghz processor, A good graphics card and a pretty decent display size. The only three sets that matched these requirements were the ones above.


The Motorola Defy Plus

I earlier had written about this power packed mobile at Motorola Defy Plus in India.The Motorola Defy Plus is one smartphone that anyone would love to have.The phone is packed with super specifications at the price offered.The Defy Plus runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and has a 3.7 inch touchscreen which makes it a biggie.The phone is packed with a 1GHz processor and a 5Mega Pixel primary camera.The Defy has a decent resolution of 480x854 pixels.The device is equipped with Gorilla glass and is scratch resistant and Water proof.

Pros:
  • Android Gingerbread OS

  • 3.7 inch and 480x854 pixel resolution
  • Gorilla Glass display
  • Waterproof and Dust proof.
  • Good battery backup.
Cons:
  • 5 MP camera doesn't live up to competitor standards.
  • only 480p video recording compared to 720p among competitors
  • No front camera or secondary camera for video calling.
Price: Rs 15990/- from Flipkart

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V is a smaller version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo which packed better performance and an 8MP Camera. The camera is just 5MP compared to the Neo, which is why they have 'V' in the name of the phone. The Neo V has a 3.7 inch screen with a resolution of 480x854 pixels and has a 1GHz Processor.

Pros:
  • Plays and Records 720p Video
  • Good Camera when compared to competitor 5MP Camera phones

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is a phone with great features that you might only find in Android mobile phones above 25k, The best thing about Xperia Ray is it's 8MP camera and 720P HD video recording, there are even rumours on the internet that both the iPhone 4S and the Xperia Ray has the same camera. We are not sure about that but still it is a great camera for sure.

Pros:
  • 8.1MP Camera and 720p HD video recording.
  • 296ppi which is very close to even the iPhone 4S, which implies great clarity on screen
  • Small size and holds well in hand, very thin.
  • Stylish looks
  • Better network performance than competitors.
  • Really fast and good graphics
Cons:
  • Low internal storage ( but being gingerbread apps can be moved to memory card)

I would definitely go for the Xperia ray if you asked me :)
