Your Own Mobile Phone Buying Guide

July 31, 2012 by MobTech | Comments Off | Filed in Latest gadget

In this modern age, mobile phones are the gadgets that are accessible to almost everyone and needless to mentions that each one of the population wants one. So, when it comes to select your first or umpteenth mobile phone, you can get easily confused. There are a few hundreds of mobile manufacturers. Some are local and some are international. All of these companies make about a few thousand of mobile phones and they launch one or two new models at regular intervals. So, every day the options are growing and making things tougher. So, it has become important that you need some guidance while buying your mobile. Here you will receive some guidance.

Things that you need to consider while buying a mobile phone are:

  • There are basically two different types of mobile phones these days, the smart phones and the regular mobile phones. You have to first decide which kind of phone you want. In this context, you also need to remember that the regular phones will not be able to provide you all the facilities of a smartphone, yet they will be less expensive than the smart phones.
  • There are also two basic ways to by a mobile phone, the first is Pay As You Go where you buy the phone yourself and add a prepaid sim card which you top up with credit as and when you need it. These are cheap if you dont make many calls, but expensive if you do. The second and most common is a contract phone where you get the phone free but you are tied into a mobile contract for up to two years. These deals are complex and beyond the scope of this blog but you can compare both PAYG and Contract Mobile Phone Deals here.
  • Mobile phone industry is growing everyday and that is why, and choosing a certain phone can be really tough. You have to decide first about the attributes of the phone and only then you can manage to decide upon a few mobiles that will be able to fulfill your requirements.
  • You have to decide upon the screen size and attributes. Even if you are buying a regular mobile phone, you can have the touchscreen option and all the smartphones come with touchscreen. If you think larger screen will be better, then opt for one phone with a larger screen, otherwise a smaller screen should be enough.
  • Checking the battery life is also very important. It is the battery which is the power source for your mobile and if the battery cannot provide enough backup, then there is no point buying such a mobile phone. You can read about the better backup time on the packet containing the mobile and if you are shopping online, then you will have all the information along with the description of the mobile from the website you are visiting.
  • You must have a clear idea about the applications that are already in the mobile and the ones that you can add. This way, you will be able to use your mobile for a lot of functions. So, you need to find a mobile that has the applications you require or will allow you to load those applications afterwards.
  • You need to decide upon the budget first. If you know that you are allowed to spend a certain amount of money, then your list of mobile phones will become considerably simple. It is so, because you will know your limit and can choose among the mobile that fit within your budget.
  • You also have to decide upon the company from which you are going to buy the mobile. If you want to opt for an international brand, then do a research and if you want to opt for a local brand, then also you have to do the same.


Blackberry Curve 8520 Review:

July 9, 2012 by MobTech | Comments Off | Filed in Latest Mobile

Blackberry is a name that stands for class. It comes with revolutionary hardware and software that never leaves the customer unsatisfied. It has carved out its own niche in the mobile phone market. It usually creates phones priced at the higher end of the price spectrum, but Blackberry Curve 8520 is different. It is Blackberry’s attempt at creating a smartphone that is lowly priced and yet does not compromise upon much of the revolutionary features that it comes with. The reason is to attract more and more customers and improve their share in the mobile phone market. We’ll review the Blackberry Curve 8520 closely tonight and see if it stands up to the quality of the other Blackberry phones.


The design is rather simplistic, much like other Blackberry phones. Blackberry usually creates very simple designs which exude a class of their own. It has a 2.46 inch screen and four buttons right below it. It obviously houses the QWERTY keypad which Blackberry uses in almost all of its phones, and aids much with the texting. If you are a person who’s constantly texting, then you’ll find a QWERTY keypad like the Blackberry’s much more suitable than a touch phone. You have a welcome addition in the form of the 3.5mm headphone jack, but it’s on the left side, which is not the most convenient place for a headphone jack. On the top there are three media keys so that it’s easy to navigate around with music. You have the usual charging port on the left. The volume rocker is on the right.

Build Quality:

The build quality is average, and Blackberry has saved some costs on this front. The back cover of Blackberrys is known to be classy, but the back cover on this one is ordinary. It’s glossy plastic (which makes it prone to scratches) and rather cheap quality. The phone feels compact though. The sides are rubberised and feel good. At 106g the weight is very decent and it’ll slip into your pocket without too much hassle, being only 13.9mm wide.


The Blackberry Curve comes with the Blackberry OS and a 512 Mhz processor is sufficient to handle it. The main feature that Blackberry offers is ease of connectivity, and this one is no exception. It has excellent features for e-mail and texting. You can subscribe for Blackberry messenger and the great GPRS facility that Blackberry offers, which is superb for connectivity. Blackberry has introduced a new trackpad which is very responsive and offers great navigation facilities. The screen is 320 x 240 pixel resolution, and the images are bright. One of the major drawbacks here is the lack of 3G support. You might have a feeling that Blackberry went a bit too far in cutting down costs, as 3G comes in almost all the good phones. The camera is only 2 MP so we didn’t expect much from it, and neither did we get too much. The battery gives a talktime of around 4 hours which is a bit low.


The Blackberry Curve 8520 is an entry level Blackberry and would be a decent first Blackberry for a person. It offers decent features, which don’t match up to the other, more expensive Blackberrys. If you want to have an experience of the Blackberry and take advantage of its great connectivity features, then you should go for it, otherwise there are other phones in the same category which have much to offer as well.

Dell Streak 7 Review:

March 19, 2012 by MobTech | Comments Off | Filed in Latest gadget

Dell is renowned for making computers of the highest quality and is a huge player in the computer market, but there are certainly bigger players in the tablet market. Dell’s Streak 7 is an enlarged version of the Streak 5, and it promises a good load of features. Dell promises to bring its computing technology and reliability to the tablets. Does it stand up to the quality that we’ve all known Dell for? Does it deliver all that it promises? We’ll have a closer look and bring you the facts.


The design of the Streak 7 is much like the Streak 5, only larger. The Dell Streak 7, as the name suggests, has a 7 inch screen. The size is decent, and one can hold it in one hand. The design is mostly plastic, and there are 3 capacitative buttons. The back of the device is patterned and makes for a good grip. Overall, the device looks simple and stylish. On the left side of the tablet, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the right, you would find the slots for the SIM card and the SD card. You also have two speakers, on both the edges. On the top you have the volume rocker and the power button. One gets a feeling that Dell built this to be used in the landscape mode, rather than in the portrait mode, seeing the alignment of the buttons. You also get corning gorilla glass protection for the screen which ensures it is scratchproof. Overall, the build quality is good. It isn’t the best build quality we’ve seen, but it’s very good.


The Dell Streak 7 comes loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo OS and is powered by a 1 Ghz Qualcomm processor. The 7 inch screen has a resolution of 800 x 480, which is pretty ordinary. One would expect better from Dell here. The viewing angles are poor as well. Dell is a new player in the tablet market, and it shows. Dell hasn’t done too good a job with its navigation as well. There is a huge scope for improvement here. The navigation isn’t very smooth or flawless. Coming to media performance, it is decent, but not the best. You can download e-book reading apps and reading e-books is very comfortable, especially in the landscape mode. The video quality is average, especially owing to the poor screen resolution. The music is quite good though. The 1 Ghz Qualcomm processor does well with high end usage, and it is likely that you would have a comfortable experience while performing high-end tasks, such as browsing content rich web pages and playing games. The battery life is pretty ordinary, and hence it could do with some improvement as well. The camera is 5 MP and the photographs are good. It also has a front VGA camera for video calling.


Dell is a new player in the tablet market and it would take a few launches to get everything right. There are much more experienced players who provide the same facilities on paper and better experience in practice to the user at the same price. Hence, it is advisable to go for them. The design of the Dell Streak 7 is good, but there is a huge scope for improvement on a lot of other aspects.
