There are phones of different brands that just use the Android operating system and allow you to download the same app like expensive phones

Which smartphone to choose: two straight ways

If you are looking for the new phone you will have turned in some electronics magazines and you have ideas even more confused than before. That’s why we described some basic tips and some important points that may help you.

There are phones of different brands that just use the Android operating system and allow you to download the same app like expensive phones

Specific immediately that it is not a treaty but just some basic advice for beginners.

If you just want to make calls and send SMS or MMS, you will not use the functions that provides avoid a smartphone that is certainly more expensive.

If your hands are trembling or have the famous “hands ricotta” let go of the touch screen phones surely you will start to call inopportune times unlikely to unknown or with whom you have little confidence.

But if you really want a smartphone in order to have access to email and social apps, the weather and still look for something on the internet so you can choose between an iPhone or a phone with Android or the new Windows phone.

All three systems have the app (i.e. small downloadable applications for free or at little cost) to the most disparate things but in this windows is much more behind its competitors (Apple and Android) and this can be a first discriminating.

To experience then I know that Apple and Android are much easier to use and configure.

Then you must ask the question, but I have to spend those absurd figures (500/600 Dollars or more) to read and send mail, make a check in with foursquare or update my status on FB?


There are phones of different brands that just use the Android operating system and allow you to download the same app like expensive phones (iPhone).

One thing: pay attention to the internal memory available to the phone. Android is structured so as to require a lot of memory to run well and run the app to the fullest.

If your phone (such as the Samsung Galaxy Ace) has only a few megs of internal memory you will greatly limit the app or hack the phone and doing so will void the warranty (place then you are able to do so!)

Then go to a phone with at least 1 meg of internal memory. The fact that you can expand the memory with an additional memory card allows you to upload music, photos and more, but has no effect on the problem that I mentioned above.

Another thing to keep in mind: there are different distributions of Andorid and are generally updated but some can not be upgraded to higher distribution that some app may be usable only from mobile phones with the updated version of the software. (Usually there are apps for all versions so it should not be a problem).

So basically with a mobile phone from cost around 90/120 Dollars you can do pretty much what you would do with a 600 dollars smartphone.

Of course then change other things such as the quality of the camera or other things like that but what about the social functions, navigation and mailing will have no problems.

The 12 most vulnerable smartphone of the world

Everyone knows, how important security is, in all fields, including smartphones. Indeed, above them, lately, more often become a digital warehouse full of personal information, passwords, telephone numbers, credit card numbers etc. The mobile operating systems are becoming more malicious throats, that for months now “repackage” more and more malware. It’s not a totally new viruses for Symbian and Windows Mobile already existed a few years ago, but with the rapid rise in the market for more advanced systems such as Android also “crap” malignant evolve and affect where they have a greater chance of effectiveness, a situation already seen in the PC industry with Windows. Through Settebassi, remained active on Twitter, here is an interesting link to an infographic by the curated information security Bit9.


how important smartphone security


From research Bit9, emerges as the 12 smartphones are all vulnerable to the world of Android. The iPhone, however, is in 13th place, more “protected” by its rapid adoption by users of newer versions of iOS. Just update the question seems to be a little sore point in the world of Android smartphones that has all the companies involved in the ranking does not shine; unfortunately for quickly updating devices. And do not talk about some of the transition from Android 2.3 to 4.0, just come out and whose absence on most devices is justified: during the months Google has released updates to bug fixes in 2.3 branch, not always promptly accepted by OEMs, which have absolute freedom to decide whether to provide or not. The result is that 56% of Android users have an outdated version of the operating system and thus are vulnerable to additional risks than those relating to the misuse of the product. On the other hand, Apple warrants the supported devices to the latest version of iOS, which includes the bug fixes related to discovered security flaws.


Google may at least partially remedy this situation? Yes, if he can get more authority over licensees of the system. This is damaging because of the same company in Mountain View, which is likely to find an image not too dissimilar to that of Microsoft’s desktop on the security front. You must make at least the obligatory bugfix updates, in a time frame acceptable. This malware will not disappear, nor will the system completely safe even from careless use, but it certainly will help you better manage the situation.
