It’s Samsung-tastic! The Zenis Desktop Dock for Samsung phones and tablets

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Zenis Samsung Desktop Dock

If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, then Zenis have just the desktop dock for you. It’s called the Desktop Dock and Stand for Samsung Galaxy Handsets, and as the name implies it will keep your Samsung smartphone charged up and all listed Samsung devices standing tall.

Pretty much any Galaxy handset with a 5 pin micro USB dock at the bottom of the device will work; see the full list below. As well as using micro USB to charge and sync your device, there’s also a 3.5mm audio jack passthrough that ensures easy connectivity to your speaker system.

The case is stylish and looks great with its circular base and graceful support curves, but it’s also quite portable. It folds up easily, allowing you to toss it in your bag without it taking up a lot of space. The design is also wide enough to accommodate phones and tablets that are in cases, so you don’t have to remove your case whenever you want to dock your device.

The Zenis Galaxy Desktop Dock is compatible with the following phones and tablets:

Galaxy Nexus
Galaxy Note
Galaxy Note 2
Galaxy S I
Galaxy S II
Galaxy S III
Galaxy Tab 7.0
Galaxy Tab 7 Plus
Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Galaxy Tab 7.7
Galaxy Tab 8.9
Galaxy Tab 10.1
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Galaxy Note 10.1

Galaxies Apart: The S2 and S3 Compared

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Today we’ll be having a look at the differences between two of the biggest phones of the past two years: The Samsung Galaxy S III and its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II. Both have proved extremely popular so far, but will the Galaxy S III go on to sell as massively as the S II did last year? I think so, because these two phones really are galaxies apart. Let’s have a look!

Hardware

The most obvious difference between the Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy S3 is that of hardware.

Where the Galaxy S2 was quite big for its time at 4.3″ diagonal, the Galaxy S3 takes this even further at 4.8″ diagonal. That extra half an inch of screen real estate unlocks the door to a 720p HD display, a massive increase in screen quality from the Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S3 also brings a lot more firepower to bear, courtesy of a home-grown quad-core CPU.

 

 Display Size  4.3″  4.8″
 Resolution  800 x 480  1280 x 720
 Pixels Per Inch  217  306
 Processor  Exynos 4210  Exynos 4412
 Cores  2  4
 Clock Speed  1.2 GHz  1.4 GHz
 RAM  1 GB  1 GB
 Internal Storage  16 / 32 GB  16 / 32 / 64 GB
 Micro SD  up to 32 GB  up to 64 GB
 Battery  1650 mAh  2100 mAh
 Dimensions  125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5 mm  136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm
 Weight  116 g  133 g

 

As you can see, there’s a fair amount of difference between the two phones – almost everything has been upgraded in the Galaxy S III to exceed the standards of the day – the Galaxy S3 compares favourably to the HTC One X, Lumia 900 and iPhone 4S too (click here for a more detailed comparison).

Another big difference between the two phones is their look – while the Galaxy S2 has a more standard design reminiscent of the iPhone, thanks to Apple’s legal teams the Galaxy SIII looks like an entirely new creation, with a much more rounded look and unique colour choices of ‘pebble blue’ and ‘marble white’. You can see this quite clearly in the image below (credit to Android Authority).

Software

Another big way the S3 offers an upgrade over the old model is in software.

Firstly, the Samsung Galaxy S3 ships with Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0. The Galaxy S2 shipped with Gingerbread, Android 2.3. There’s as big a difference between those versions as the 1.7 gap suggests; Ice Cream Sandwich is worlds ahead in terms of usability, the strength of the included applications and the overall design language.

While the Galaxy S2 has since been upgraded to Gingerbread, Samsung have taken a much more additive approach to the Galaxy S3, with dozens of new features not found anywhere else.

For example, you can watch picture-in-picture videos while playing games, taking notes or surfing the web – a feature Samsung calls Pop Up Play.

Another feature called Smart Stay uses the front-facing camera to ensure that the display never dims or locks when you’re looking at it.

S Voice is a Siri-equivalent for Android that looks more polished than anything we’ve seen before.

S Beam combines NFC and WiFi to transfer files between phones at high speeds with just a touch.

For more information, check out our coverage of the Galaxy SIII announcement.

Accessories

Finally, we can’t help but mention some of the Samsung Galaxy SIII accessories that should really go beyond what was available for the Galaxy S II. As well as the normal plethora of Samsung Galaxy S3 cases, there’ll be wireless charging, a Wi-Fi display hub, an HDTV dongle and even a Galaxy S3 C-Pen stylus.

Conclusion

So as you can see, there’s a much bigger difference between the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S2 than you might have thought. The mobile industry moves at a breakneck pace, and nowhere is this more evident than with the next Galaxy superphone.

It’s a real looker too, particularly in pink, with a svelte frame and gorgeous 4.3″ screen. With the introduction of Ice Cream Sandwich by June this year, you’ll have an impressively competitive phone at a very nice price.

Top 5 sim free phones

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Here are the top five sim free phones available here at Mobile Fun. Let’s have a look!

 

5. Sim Free HTC Wildfire S

The Wildfire S is a long-standing member of our top five, offering excellent performance and that legendary HTC build quality in a small and inexpensive Android handset. The Wildfire S is one of the cutest handsets on the market, but isn’t a slouch either, with its 105 g containing a 600 MHz ARM processor and half a gigabyte of RAM. It’s also upgradeable to the latest version of Android Gingerbread, 2.3.5. Not bad!

 

4. Sim Free Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

The Xperia Arc S is another excellent Android handset for the fashion-conscious. With an incredibly slim and shapely body, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S looks great and also sports even greater performance than #5 on the list. There’s a 4.2″ display that looks great, a powerful 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording and inside a strong 1.4 GHz processor. There’s even an HDMI port that lets you show off those HD movies you’ve recorded. But where the Arc S shines is its looks — definitely the nicest looking Android phone I’ve ever seen!

 

3. Sim Free BlackBerry Bold 9900

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the top handset from RIM. The phone includes a dual core processor, a first for a BlackBerry, as well as a touch screen and the latest OS 7. Available in black and white, the Bold 9900 also comes with a cool look that befits its top dog status.

 

2. Sim Free Samsung Galaxy S2

 

The sim free Samsung Galaxy S2 is a great phone that has stood the test of time, and still represents the pinnacle of Android engineering. With a world-leading 1.4 GHz dual core processor, a perfect 8 megapixel camera and an expansive 4.3″ screen on an 8.7 mm thick chassis, the Galaxy S2 remains a viable option. While the coming storm of HD display phones with quad core processors will no doubt eclipse it, the industry-leading phone will remain great value for money for some time to come.

 

1. Sim Free Samsung Galaxy Nexus

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the hottest Android phone out of the fire. With the thus-far-exclusive Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Nexus is the latest reference phone from Google. As well as the top-notch upgrade that upgrade that Ice Cream Sandwich represents on a software level, the hardware is pretty impressive. There’s a dual core processor at 1.2 GHz, 16 GB of internal storage (but no SD card), and NFC capabilities.

 

And that’s all folks! Remember, feel free to ask us anything about these phones via the comments below — we’ll try to answer to the best of our ability!
