The Windows Phone 8X by HTC is a great phone, this evaluation was performed with the updated Windows Phone 8.1 Dev Preview device. The phone has a good performance for everyday, it is very easy to use and has a very good processor for this type of devices.

The Xiaomi Mi3 isn’t available in the UK yet aside from as an import, but Chinese companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus have a chance at changing the face of the phone market. Of course, that’s all stuff for the future. We got out hands on one of Xiaomi’s phones right now to see whether this £200-odd wonder is really worth considering as an import alternative to something like the Nexus 5, or even Samsung Galaxy S5. Phones like the Xiaomi Mi3 are here to shake things up. Xiaomi Mi3 has a distinctive look that proves surprisingly recognisable for something most of us have never heard of. The back, bottom and top edges are all completely flat, but the semi-circle curved sides give the phone quite a nice, soft feel in-hand. When dealing with a phone that’s essentially designed for a market other than your own, it’s important to check there aren’t missing features you’ll need. The Xiaomi Mi3 has most, apart from one – 4G.
As we’re starting to see 4G implemented in phones at all levels in the UK, from the £80 Alcatel One Touch Pop S3 up, it’s a bit disappointing to see the Xiaomi Mi3 top out at 3G. The one other obvious missing bit is an IR transmitter, although it still has NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi and an MHL-compliant USB port.
Gionee’s Elife S5.5, the younger sibling of that phone, is touted as the slimmest smartphone in the world. It features top-of-the-line specifications too.

The world is transitioning towards mobility and when we talk about accessing the Web, people prefer to browse websites on the go. Android Smartphone devices are dominating the mobile world and there is a very big number of Android Smartphone users which is growing very quickly.
Several developers have developed tools for Android platform to access the Web but only a few gadgets are out there which are performing really well. Here is the list of top five Android browsers in the year 2014.
Google Chrome: Where the browser is performing really nice on PCs, the mobile version of the tool is effective too. Google Chrome is indeed the most loved Internet browser on Android platform which has been revealed by a poll about the best Internet browsers for Android on AndroidPot.net.
In the poll, Android users voted Chrome the most and this fair voting reveals that Google Chrome is indeed the best browser for Android platform in the year 2014.
UC Web Browser: Although UC Web Browser’s name may not sound good at first, but it is the second most widely used Internet browser which has a very big fan base. In addition to a cool UI, UC Web has a strong capability of streaming videos due to which Android users love this app.
Opera Mini: Opera’s PC browser though isn’t performing well, but the browser’s mobile version has a lot of great features. On Android phones and tablets, Opera Mini is performing extremely well. With its unique data compression technology, the tool renders web pages swiftly even on slower Internet connections.
Firefox: Next in our list is the Mozilla’s Firefox. This browser is doing well on PCs, but on Smartphone devices, particularly on Android powered phones, users don’t love this app too. This browser lets you sync your bookmarks and other browsing details with your account and thus you can establish a link between your PC browser and your phone’s browser to make Internet browsing easier.
Dolphin Browser: In our list, Dolphin browser stands at last. This browser is also performing well on Android powered devices. With its cool UI and powerful web page rendering, Dolphin browser has built a good fan base too, like other popular Android Internet browsers.
This was the list of top 5 Android Internet browsers in 2014. I hope it satisfied you as the list was built after analyzing the poll participated by Android users.
Xperia T3 is Sony’s newest phablet in the market and based on the name it sounds like the successor.

XOLO is the new handsets manufacturer. XOLO launched new handset named “WIN Q900s”. XOLO WIN Q900s Smartphone come with Windows 8.1 operating system, Quad-core 1.2 GHz Processor, 8 MP, 3266 x 2446 pixels, autofocus, LED flash. On the front, there’s a 2MP camera.

Huawei has managed to cram a good amount of tech into this sleek and slim device, which measures just over 6mm in width. Inside the aluminium alloy frame is a quad-core processor, so multi-tasking should be stutter free and there’s an 8 megapixel snapper on the back. In terms of screen real-estate, you’re looking at a 4.7 inch display, covered in the super durable Gorilla Glass with a very respectable 312 ppi. Another bonus is that it’s running the very latest version of Android, Jelly Bean 4.2.2; however it is skinned with Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6 interface so no vanilla Android here. The Huawei Ascend P6 is the slimmest phone in the world, at the time of writing. It’s just 6.2mm thick, and that is without doubt the most striking feature of the phone. Screen quality is great. It uses an IPS panel, which provides natural-looking colours, strong top brightness and good angled viewing.
The first smartphone to be manufactured stateside has some exciting specs. The phone will monitor your every move, learning patterns to deliver a better experience in other functions, like Google Now. As far as specs, all we know is that you can expect a 4.7-inch screen with a 10 megapixel rear-facing camera. The exciting part about not knowing more details? They may all be customizable. We’re not sure which version of Android the phone will come out with, but word on the street is that Motorola will control the first OS upgrade, not the carriers, so regardless, you’ll be as up-to-date as possible once Motorola flips the switch.
