Three Highlighted Smartphones of Mobile World Congress 2013

How many times have you fallen overboard your smart phone? Maybe more than you wish, but less than you might expect. In any case, since smartphones represent an investment you have to consider new spending on repairs, not to mention the annoyance that while you cross your fingers that have emerged unscathed from the dip.

One item that caught your attention during the recently closed Mobile World Congress 2013 there are three highlighted devices, for various reasons, become more or less exemplary in this regard. Let’s start with the Sony Xperia Z. It missed the meeting as the top team from the Japanese manufacturer. The Xperia Z is certified IP55 and IP57. Thanks to this, not only to survive and even small dips but also not afraid to action of dust and sand. What’s more, its glass casing is treated so that it holds bumps and drops. The white model also holds very well the traces printed fingers during use, which is not as achieved in purple and black models.

This solution is very elegant, but not as hard as it is the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2. What the South Korean manufacturer has designed a bunker with which we could make calls, send messages and connect to the Internet. It is, as it were, to use a smartphone, who does not lack anything. It is a terminal with better balance of performance and quality to inclement hold of almost any type. It is specially designed for users with more athletes, which can be enjoyed on this team one of the latest versions of Google’s operating system, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Another terminal surprised concentrating resistance and aesthetic comes from one of the fastest growing manufacturers, the Chinese Huawei, whose Ascend D2 attracted wide attention. It is another team that we had known prior to MWC 2013, although admittedly much winning in the short distance, especially, if the distance is underwater. A demonstration made clear that the Huawei Ascend D2 supports low water use, even if we receive a call-something that, on the other hand, does not have much use in the practical.

These are not, however, the only equipment designed to withstand as much as possible, despite the awkwardness of the user can handle it. We met at the time the Nokia Lumia 920, which is probably the most reliable against bumps and drops. However, the best is yet to come. Samsung will present on March 14 its new Samsung Galaxy S4 and as it was raised in the wings of the recently concluded annual meeting of the phone, would have on the hardness and strength one of their strengths attractive new-never better.

Potential applications of the Samsung Galaxy S4

It is already known that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be launched on 14th of March Samsung would be considering the possibility of integrating two different processors. According to new rumors, intelligent functions besides we already know, the fourth generation of the Samsung Galaxy S4 come equipped with at least four different applications.

One of the first application had been dubbed S Health. This is an application you probably already know, since in some markets (like the U.S. or the UK) and was operational for the Samsung Galaxy S3. The new edition of S Health, which this time could be run natively on the Samsung Galaxy S4 incorporated major improvements as the user. S Health is an application that works like a little digital doctor, capable of controlling blood pressure or diabetes level. The tool is able to connect via Bluetooth and USB to other devices, such as cardiac connectors. The goal? Follow the evolution of the patient / user through the registration of all data, measuring the amount of exercise and recommending, in case it is needed, a true doctor visit.

The second application built into the phone would payWave. This is a service that facilitates payments via mobile. Itself was created by Samsung in collaboration with Visa and tested in the 2012 London Olympics. This information has been confirmed by Visa, so users can make this valid option. The system works through technology NFC (Near Field Communication). Be seen, in this case, to what extent the user can make use of this option, because the truth is that the NFC is not yet being applied in a standardized way in the real world.

In recent weeks there have been some report that supports the theory that Sony has everything ready to file an application for PlayStation 4 ara iOS and Android. The truth is that right now we are not aware of the name of the first device that could lead installed this app, but the truth is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be an excellent choice for the user could take full advantage of this smartphone through video games.

But that’s not all. Samsung presented at Mobile World Congress 2013 a new system called KNOX, whose purpose is to provide an enhanced level of security on smartphones that are used for business / professional and personal. There is a tendency, dubbed BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) that focuses on employees to use personal devices for work, with added advantages as interesting as the increased productivity. This solution has some security risks that can be headed off by Samsung KNOX. Samsung has already announced that this tool software will be available on devices with Android Samsung since the second quarter of 2013. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be presented to the public at the right time to integrate KNOX natively.
