phonesNphones.com is accepting submissions for cool stuff that make you go whoa, and good articles related to tech, apps, geeks, Smartphone, tabs and telecommunications in general.

Actually, anything out of the list is still fine as long as it jives with the site, subject to approval from the editors, of course.

How To Get Published

The problem with the submissions we get is that we have to reject them for one reason or another. For one, we have to reject submissions that do not adhere to our publishing policy. We also don’t really like content that are lifted from other sites or not written from scratch. So far, we can only accept English articles (until we can get a translator on board).

Apart from that, here are a few guidelines to help improve the odds of getting published, based on the submission being articles, tutorials or tips and showcases.

1) Articles

If you are aiming to submit an article, discussion, something that features more text than images:

  1. Please have an intro, a body and a conclusion.
  2. Subtitle your main point – then elaborate.
  3. Ensure that it is between 800 to 1000 words. (Seriously, do not make us reject a piece over this.)

2) Tutorials/Tips

We love them tutorials, although to make it reader-friendly, follow these few guidelines:

  1. Make them straight-to-the-point and under 100 steps.
  2. Include the demo link and/or download link where relevant.
  3. Credit your image sources or link back to the original site where you got the images from.

3) Showcases

A picture says a thousand words, so if you want to feature a showcase of awesome images or illustrations:

  1. Submit images in a separate zipped file and properly named.
  2. All images must be in the highest possible resolution. If they look awesome, that’s a plus.
  3. Credit your image sources and link back to the page the image was taken from.
  4. If it is a showcase featuring apps, tools or plugins etc, do include the download link.

We Would Love It If You Could…

Give your submission more leverage by

  • linking back to previously published phonesNphones.com articles.
  • submitting in .html (although .doc files are still okay).
  • standardizing the width of images at 500px, 550px or 600px only.

All Done?

Is your submission ready? Then, submit it to asm@phonesnphones.com. Please do not use this email address to enquire about how else to improve your chances of being published. We’ve already shared all our secrets with you.

Best of luck and happy writing!

Motorola Razr I: Motorola Has Done A truly Excellent Job

motorola razr i

Addressing a review of a latest generation Smartphone is not always easy and immediate. Though give ratings and talk about the characteristics of both “easy”, it is said to be able to really express the quality of a product or defects it may have.

In particular, the Motorola Razr I is a Smartphone but extremely interesting for a number of reasons that still remains in a kind of limbo, which makes it difficult to have the judgment. While this device might be considered the best on the market at the moment, on the other hand has a number of “defects” are not necessarily hardware or software, that make it “less perfect” than it may initially appear.

Hardware

At the hardware level we can hardly find deficiencies as it offers pretty much everything you could want in a phone of last generation. Comprehensive wireless connectivity, HDMI, and MicroSD, 8-megapixel camera with flash and 1080p recording, Super AMOLED Advanced display with a resolution of 960 × 540 pixels, front-facing camera and high quality materials.

Reading the data sheet does not lack anything and indeed, comparing it with Galaxy S2, Nexus and iPhone 4s, Razr I is the most complete. Taking in hand then has a feeling of strength and quality really unique despite the thickness is truly content. So if iPhone 5 could boast far the best building among the top range Smartphone, Razr I past as it offers the same quality with the use of materials much less delicate. Compared to products by Samsung obviously the difference is important.

The downside resulting from the choice of materials for Motorola, is the built-in battery is not removable, hidden under the shell. Although it is a solution that allows to occasionally increase the solidity of the device (not having a flap has no points of opening / fragility) limits in some way the use. The example is easily done. Although the internal battery is just as good as capacity (1780mAh), cannot be replaced and the same to market Motorola is the Motorola Droid Maxx, identical characteristics but with well-3300mAh battery and a thickness slightly greater.

Pros & Cons Of Built-in Battery

So, although I cannot be at the moment (we will see later in the article the performance battery) fault with a capital D, it is equally true that a user open to innovation may not be happy to see an identical phone sold in America with the battery practically twice the Razr I and not be eligible for an upgrade fee as with a detachable battery pack.


Another important aspect, which binds indirectly to the choice of the integrated battery, is balancing the phone. Aside from the overall dimensions, which are absolutely matters of taste, Motorola has chosen a solution “special” for the balance of the phone…

If you have a Galaxy S2, or know the range Samsung Android in general, also know that many devices marketed have a greater thickness at the bottom of the device, where is the rear speaker and other hardware often dedicated to connectivity. On the Razr I thickest part is at the top, a solution that may not initially seem “negative” but in reality brings with it a “problem” balancing.

Being more often at the top, the weight of the phone is moved forward and it is not uncommon to have the feeling that the phone Runaway hand slipping forward when we keep it with one hand. Also being very wide (like all devices with screens over 4 inches) the feeling in your hand, if you do not have huge hands, rarely provides a sense of security.

Software

Motorola Razr I, as now the entire non-Nexus device, offers a personalization system designed by the manufacturer. It is not the old MotoBlur, but it’s a complete customization of the Android UI. Leaving aside personal tastes. In addition to the many present Widgets with nice animations and excellent speed of the system, we find a very particular set of options that allow you to better manage your phone…

There are many options for the optimization of energy consumption and a really interesting functionality Smart Actions that lets you create and own real smart profiles that allow you to activate the phone’s features and functionality as needed. Excellent organization of the menu of the application and the presence of built-in data counter style Android 4.0.

For those who use a lot of these resources, especially related to social, Razr I allows you to have a centralized management of the address book, with status updates and information from Facebook and Twitter and messaging that becomes a real percent of chat conversations with Facebook, Twitter, Mail, SMS and more. From this point of view a very painstaking work.

Hitches

In contrast with much good work but also some negative aspects of the system. While the internet browser is undoubtedly great, but it still has not arrived at maturity (as with all things some updating is necessary), there is a certain lack of continuity in the UI. Not there are very few sporadic jamming some applications, despite the fluidity of the system is really pleasant, sometimes something freezes and you have a few moments of uncertainty.

Screen & Autonomy

Razr I has a Super AMOLED Advanced display, a solution very similar to the Super AMOLED of the Samsung range but with a better management of the whites. In fact, the screen does not have the typical defect tend all in the display of the white pages, but it offers an excellent color balance. In contrast, the colors are saturated, perhaps even more of Samsung’s display with similar and often make the images too artificial. It is still very nice, large and with good resolution and with a multi-touch accurate.

Regarding the autonomy, as anticipated initially, Razr I does not stand out among the samples of the sector. Although the built-in battery has a capacity of 1780mAh, not always possible to conclude a day’s work. Fortunately, many energy-saving settings and Smart Actions present, allow us to manage the phone and connectivity in a complete manner guaranteeing a few more hours of standby time.

Connectivity

razr i

While Motorola is synonymous with excellent reception, sound quality and connectivity, on the other hand Razr I did not impress, especially in the way-Fi. The problem is common to many Smartphone Razr I and the WI-Fi signal is not stable, not particularly powerful and docking problems with the neighbor router…

At the hardware level, as anticipated, we pretty much all the connections can also accessories Motorola greatly increases the possible uses of the Smartphone. Remains at the bitterness of the Wi-Fi connectivity. Really good instead the department with 3G download speeds worthy of the name Motorola and with a good seal 3G signal.

Multimedia

One of the departments that unless we use every day but is still rich and unique. Camera side we have an 8-megapixel sensor that offers good shots with abundant light and curtains at night and do not express the maximum. Let’s say that we are obviously far as using digital camera as on any other Smartphone, and in principle the photos are nice as other products with some pros and cons depending on exposure, light and shutter speed.

Sony Xperia Z: The New Flagship of the Japanese Brand

sony xperia z

First Smartphone from Sony provided a 5-inch Full HD 1080P, the Sony Xperia Z who wants to become “the premium brand of Android” this year. Attempting to fulfill this ambitious goal, Sony has made particular attention to its Xperia Z … Answers in this test bench…!

Sony Xperia Z – Design

The device design is a matter of taste. We do not judge the look of this newcomer. However, although thinks it is impossible to deny the effort that Sony delivers here a Smartphone for less slick, sleek, chic, fitted with a glass casing – it changes the plastic – and a very good screen/weight/size ratio finesse.

We appreciate the very thin border around the screen. A point which allows the unit to not display delusional measurements despite the 5-inch screen size. Well done. The competition should take the seed.

User-friendliness

With its angular profile and width, it is not easy to hold the camera with one hand, which frankly does not fall into the palm of your hand. Surprising choice as that used for the location of the enclosure since it is at the bottom, on the edge of the terminal. So, it is not uncommon to lay hands on and simply block the exit. The problem will arise less from lefties.

The end of the terminal is almost impeccable. The downside, however, the fine groove between the screen of the hull: dust lodges there too easily. Having been to test the black version, it could only regularly deplore the fact that fingerprints are particularly numerous and difficult to clean. The next “class” of the unit takes a little time, obviously.

To conclude this section devoted to the ergonomics of the device, note that the upper portion of the back of the appliance heats up when the phone is used for a while, causing a sensation not very pleasant.

Screen

Sony Xperia Z is equipped with a Full HD screen. But beyond a pixel density of 440 ppi – the densest among Smartphones, but is it really necessary to use … Its big screen has a low contrast ratio (489:1), far from the AMOLED screens. Here, blacks are darker gray than black…

For the record, most DE screen approaches 0 and the reproduced colors are true. For a year, the majority of Smartphones, especially on the high end, has a nearly 5 die, or 4 or even 3. We saw better so…


Xperia Z takes its revenge on the brightness, simply excellent. It allows the mobile to maintain a flawless readability even in bright sunlight. Note also that the screen does not shine much, which enhances readability even in a very bright environment. Viewing angles are open, but there is still a loss of color when the phone has been side, for example, as if a veil had been deposited on the screen (the yellow becomes beige, dark blue light blue…). Strange.

Color management is definitely not the strong on this phone. Finally, the persistence time is much better than the average for the sector. Once all the test data abutted the screen Xperia Z harvest a small 4. The 4/5 is also partly due to the display finesse, while simply remarkable. Even if we look closely, no pixel is visible.

Interface and Navigation

History to provide users an Android experience to the Sony sauce, and better cope with since (HTC) and TouchWiz (Samsung), the manufacturer has revised its overlay software. Both practical and lightweight (you do get lost and not Android is completely erased), the Sony interface brings a lot of small things well seen.

It is possible to have up to seven offices, define the main reception desk, direct access to several quick settings in the notifications, resizable widgets (which is not the case of apps) … In short, the ergonomics of the user interface is a success overall. Forcing Sony, Xperia Z offers several services to make rent movies, buy Playstation video games; music … In this interface very user adds an exemplary behavior of the terminal, brightness in all situations.

Whether to download an application or to start one, navigate menus in a web page, watching a video, the Swift Sony Xperia Z always shows responsive and quick to respond to touch controls. Viewing photos, videos, web, games, big screen coupled with a very good overall responsiveness of the terminal make this Xperia Z a gifted multimedia Smartphone. Especially since Sony offers a lot of dedicated applications (Gallery, Movies, Walkman …) those enrich the user experience. The headphone output comes out correctly despite the loudness just on average.

However, there is no trace of distortion and sound reproduction remains faithful. The music player comes complete with, for example, the integration of an equalizer present by default. The external speaker works pretty well as it can mount volumes high enough without showing too much distortion. Let us recall however that the location is not very wise: the sound is often obstructed by the hand. Finally, video games, whatever they are, look here without flinching.

Photo Power

The Sony Xperia Z features a 13 megapixel sensor (aperture of f / 2.4 / 4:3). The promise? Capture more details and more light, in particular, have better photos in the dark. Xperia Z comes and hunts on the lands of the Nokia Lumia 920, an excellent mobile camera when the brightness is missing. With a complete interface and rather convenient, fans will surely be filled manually. Side rendering, NPC XEPRIA Z delivers correct images with a dive and a sense of detail suitable displayed…

A good point, so. Yes, but here, all the images have a very artificial rendering, with an emphasis too far and JPEG compression supported. The white balance is also very cold (the pictures are a little bluish and flashy colors). On a phone screen (without zoom), the images are so fun to watch. 10 x 15 prints or 13 x 18 cm are possible, but larger sizes will be avoided.

xperia z

Even zooming in on the phone and in daylight scenes, grain (colored) unfortunately appears too quickly. Xperia Z does not stand out, nor ahead of his opponents such Lumia 920 and iPhone 5. It remains to this day better with a more natural, neutral colors, and a little dive. Note this photo lab Xperia Z? A 3/5. It’s not bad, and it’s enough to share photos on social networks, but the Xperia Z is not an example of the genre. As video capture (1080p), Xperia Z is doing pretty good all with a rather fluid and stable rendering. Audio remains somewhat low overall quality.

Get It Or Not?

Design work, enhanced brand identity, full HD display, 13 megapixel camera sensor, 4G/NFC compatibility Qualcomm processor with four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and coupled to a memory of 2 GB user interface house set on Android … Xperia Z is, on paper, not stingy performance. It is also resistant to water and dust (IP57 certification!) Its 2330 mAh battery is enough, considering its large screen to offer a substantial autonomy.
