[HTC Magic Contest]

Nuffnang HTC Magic Contest


everyone has a mobile phone these days, i bet even kindergartan kids have one too!
this recent years, there have been a booming number of new hps arriving in the market
all equipped with the latest technology
phones like the iphone 3g (now iphone 3gs), samsung omnia, etc.

Not to be left out of the competition, HTC has also launched its first Android-powered phone, the HTC Magic


i think it looks really sleek!
and nicer than previous HTC phones, like HTC Touch Cruise, HTC Dream
well, those are just my opinions


what does it mean by an Android-powered phone?

well, Android is an operating system for the phone, powered by Google
it is just like Windows xp for computers, mac os leopard for mac users
Android supports stuff like bluetooth, wifi, and various mp3 formats
it also have an Android Market, which is just like an application market where you can download whatever applications you want! (more about that later)


to see how far phones have developed, let me compare it with my first ever handphone, at the age of 14, which is 7 years ago!

(actually i thought i still have that handphone in my cupboard, because i seldom trade in as usually my phones are too broken to be traded in. but i searched and searched and searched... couldn't find it! ah well, a fake one will do...)

i'll compare both phones based on some basic requirements about phones that i like
okay, here goes...



Comparison #1: Mobile Phone Camera

A camera is really important i feel, when you want to check your make up or whether there's anything in your teeth but there are no mirrors nearby, just take a quick snap of yourself! so convenient!

Winner: HTC Magic with its 3.2 megapixel camera (auto focus)
aside from its camera, it also has an external expansion slot for your micro sd memory card, so no fears that your Magic will not have enough memory space for your many many camwhoring pictures!






Comparison #2: Talktime

Basically a measure of how long the battery can last. a longer battery life is definitely better for people on the go and do not have time to always recharge their phones. the longer the better!

Winner: HTC Magic wins by a landslide!
the old samsung N620 only has a talktime of up to 2hr 20mins, and a standby time of 90hours, while HTC Magic has a whopping talktime of 450mins (GSM) and a standby time of 420 HOURS (gsm)




Other 'features' of the old samsung n620:

a typical non-touch screen phone
the keypad spoiled pretty fast too, perhaps due to my aggressive sms-ing
in less than 1 year, the keypad was spoilt and it was really difficult to msg!


Photobucket
this was perhaps the worse thing i hated about the phone
during that time, there were already internal antenna phones! ughhh


Photobucket
:( sadness 7 years ago







but 7 years later, it's all different, phones are way more advanced,
and wayyy prettier than last time!

HTC Magic is fully equipped with all the gizmos of modern day handphones
wherever you are, you will always be connected to people, be it by the normal calling/smsing or through email, gps, internet, TWITTER, etc.

a screenshot of some of the highlights of HTC Magic
many google powered applications like google mail, google maps, etc.
well, OBVIOUSLY right, since Android was first developed by Google!




Now, what about this Android Market?

as i mentioned earlier, it is a market of applications, much like that used by iphone through their mac store, or even like Facebook applications, where developers can submit their applications and users can download them (for free or for a fee) into their hps!

there are really many applications in the Android Market, from social applications to travel applications and even some quirky stuff that is fun to download!

Photobucket

it is not just about games
it is also about the applications which may assist you wherever you go!



there are both applications for a fee, and applications for free
well, being a cheapo, i shall just look at applications for free
because, FREE IS GOOD! :D

this facebook sync application allows you to synce your phonebook together with the facebook profile picture of your friends! so next time your phone rings, you will see your friend's photo appearing on your screen!
