Again with the new iPhone(s)? Isn’t The Droid Guy supposed to be an Android-centric website? Leave droid fans alone. Be honest, you were thinking or wondering one of these things before you even finished reading our headline. And we completely understand your frustration. For the past two weeks or so, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
When Samsung unveiled the somewhat underwhelming Galaxy S5, HTC brashly suggested buyer’s remorse will be coming soon to early adopters of the “next big thing”. They also promised competition will be “one-upped” by the sequel to the outstanding if not underrated 2013 HTC One, raising the bar of expectations way beyond the company’s real potential.
Though Samsung never really acknowledged it did anything wrong vis-à-vis artificially boosting benchmarks in the past, last week brought the surprising and refreshing news of sneaky code being removed from Galaxy devices with Android 4.4 KitKat upgrades. Technically, this should greatly increase the credibility of “synthetic tests” on Samsung-made Android gadgets, as well as for
Amidst accusations of benchmark cheating, which among others would likely overturn the pecking order in our epic comparisons and smackdowns, region-locking scandals and intensifying rumors of a Galaxy Note 3 “Active” variant with curved display being in the works, you might have actually missed the biggest event of the fall as far as the Android
By popular demand and hopefully presumably to the utter despair and hopelessness of Apple fanboys, we’re already back with another spectacular installment of our high-end smartphone benchmarking saga. Well, not so much “ours” as rounded up from a number of external sources, but you know how it is. Not everyone is important enough and not
If it’s not obvious already, you’re on an Android blog. And you’re reading the words of a relentless, unapologetic (wink, wink) Android aficionado. But that doesn’t mean I, as well as everyone here at The Droid Guy, don’t like to keep an open mind and just discard everything that doesn’t run Google’s silky smooth mobile
It was only one month ago (to the day, actually) that I first pitted the fastest Android smartphones (at that time) against one another in an attempt to find out which was the best of the best. Though controversial and, according to some, silly, benchmarks were the tool I used for my comparison, only I
The 2,600mAh battery of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition had been subjected to some tests, comparing its performance to those on the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the Snapdragon 600 chip, Samsung Galaxy S4 with the Exynos 5 Octa-core chip, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as well as
After snatching the smartphone crown from Apple courtesy of the incredibly successful Galaxy S3, Samsung has looked to focus more on tablets, a niche where the Koreans have always been a mere blip on Cupertino’s radar. But despite Sammy’s best efforts, the iPads remain the unchallenged heavyweight champs, both when it comes to “full-size”, 10-inch
Canonical was supposed to launch a new product and on the first working day of this year and they launched Ubuntu for Phone. It was previously thought that they would be launching Ubuntu for Android, but rumors also suggested that it could be Ubuntu for Phone, and we all were taken by surprise. Ubuntu for
It seems that we are finally into the age of Froyo. More than 50% of the current device market is over 2.0, and by now the Droid X users should be waking up from their “OMG we haz FR0Y0” coma, bringing that number even further towards 2.2. The Droid X receiving Froyo has been on
For anyone who follows us, the G2 has gotten a lot of attention here. The reason for this attention has revolved around the seemingly constant string of misinformation surrounding this handset. The phone has been hailed as a Dual Core with a Tegra 2, nine heads and its own goldfish built into the battery compartment.
The world at large has had mixed feelings about Adobe’s web media giant, Flash. It’s been called a godsend, a broken piece of s$%!, and every single thing in between. For web developers, you either love it, or you find a way around it. It’s been considered a necessary evil, and a blissful sacrifice, but
