As we know, Nokia Lumia 920 is a smartphone which developed by Nokia, and running the new system Windows Phone 8. It's now available.

Comparison with Lumia 900

Compare with the flagship Lumia 900 from Windows Phone 7 era, the two devices look quite similar, but the case of Lumia 900 is gloomy while 920 is shiny and smooth, and 920 has a curved screen, which makes it feel better, more ergonomic.

Lumia 900's resolution is 800 x 480, 1.4GHz single-core processor, and the RAM is 512 M. Now improvements have been made. Lumia 920 has equipped with 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 4.5-inch 1280×720 display (326 PPI!); 8.7 megapixels Carl Zeiss camera, and support pureview shooting technology, wireless charging, and glove-friendly touchscreen.


PureMotion HD+ Screen

Nokia Lumia 920 has a revolutionary technology - PureMotion HD+. The PureMotion HD+ uses advanced PureMotion technology to get high pixel density, brighter screen, and faster refresh. It also makes revolutionary innovation in the touch-sensitive.

HD+ high pixel density

HD+ is about its resolution: 1280 × 768. The number of pixels of its 4.5-inch large screen is 60% higher thaniPhone 5 (1136 × 640), 7% higher than Samsung Galaxy S III (720 × 1280).

And the display is more delicate than many competitors' products, the pixel density of up to 332 PPI. In contrast, the iPhone 5 is 325 PPI, HTC One X is 312 PPI, and Samsung Galaxy S3 is 306 PPI, while the Galaxy Note 2 has only 285 PPI.

the super sensitive touch screen

Super Sensitive Touch

Compare with Other capacitive screen mobile phones that need to operate with the pulp, Lumia 920 screen sensibility is beyond al other smart phones' screens. Users could wear gloves, long fingernails, or even an ordinary ballpoint pen to complete the phone touch operation.


PureView imaging technology

Lumia 920 is equipped with a 8.7 megapixel rear camera, and the PureView technology is the first time being used on the Lumia phones. PureView technology uses advanced optical image stabilization technology. In a low light environment, and even the flash lamp is not opened, it is still able to intake five times more light than ordinary mobile phone's camera, hence no matter users are indoor, or at night, it is capable to capture clear, bright pictures and videos.

To enhance effects from dark, Lumia 920 adopted a new method – Backside illumination. The back-illumination (BSI) and a conventional front-illumination (FSI) have a texture difference between the photosensitive effects. Thus, although the size of the pixels is the same, but its pixel photosensitive effect is better.

Lumia 920 also uses a Carl Zeiss lens, f/2.0 aperture to capture more lights into sensor. These changes mean that you can shoot better photos on a cloudy day, evening or indoor.

More great progress is the optical image stabilization system (OIS), also known as optical image stabilization. There has some phone supports digital image stabilization feature, but this cannot be compared with the OIS. Lumia 920 will be judged by the built-in gyroscope phone direction of movement, and to move the entire shooting module to ensure that the hand jitter does not affect shooting. In addition to be able to help bring excellent video, OIS can significantly enhance the photographic effect in the dark light, because the longer the exposure time, the more stable needed.

Here is an image that stands for itself:

City Lens

Besides PureMotion and PureView, Lumia 920 is also equipped with Nokia's urban kaleidoscope – Nokia City Lens, which is adding a new suite of Nokia Map and location-based services augmented to reality experience: only need to align the camera to the city streets, then the buildings will be displayed with restaurants, hotels, and other information. It also allows switching between map view and augmented reality view, to help people identify the direction and understand the surrounding environment.


Comparison with Other Smart Phones

Lumia920 compare with iPhone5, Galaxy S3 and Driod DNA

I’m a big fan of tablets, that new wave of mobile devices that sits comfortably between smartphones and laptops. They’re not for everybody. In fact, some people consider them a waste of time and money, preferring instead to split their time between the two other devices mentioned previously. I prefer to think of tablets as luxury items: no one really needs one but many people desire owning one.

The thing is, not all tablets are created equal. There are vast array of tablets out there, led by the latest iPad, premium Android tablets, and the Microsoft Surface. If you can’t afford one of those options then there is a risk of buying a dud. A well-chosen cheap tablet can do a great job, but a poorly-chosen cheap tablet will leave you regretting your decision not to spend a few dollars more.

What follows are five things to look for when buying a cheap tablet. They may not make the tablet in question useless, but they will severely limit the appeal.

Operating Systems

Tablets are still maturing, but they’re maturing at a rate of knots. This means that the operating systems on some cheap tablets will be old, outdated, and/or defunct. You should probably avoid tablets that ship with the following:

Android 2.3 & Earlier

buying a cheap tablet

Android wasn’t built with tablets in mind until Version 3.0 (Honeycomb), which was actually a tablet-only update. Then it skipped to Version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which was an Android designed for all mobile devices. Unfortunately this means that a tablet running Version 2.3 or earlier will offer a generally muddied performance. If the hardware is good enough it is possible to manually upgrade a tablet to ICS, but this won’t be for everybody.


Web OS

buying a cheap tablet pc

Another defunct operating system you may see installed on tablets is webOS. This is certainly the case with the HP TouchPad, a short-lived tablet from Hewlett Packard which gained good reviews but which ultimately failed to take a bite out of sales of the iPad. It is possible to run Android or Linux on the TouchPad, but anyone who would rather not mess around with hardware in order to even make it worth owning should avoid at all costs.

Windows CE

buying a cheap tablet pc

Microsoft has now caught on to the tablet craze, which is why Windows 8 was built with touchscreens in mind. Much to the chagrin of many desktop users. Before Windows 8 came Windows CE, which you’ll still find on some cheap (and not so cheap) tablets. The problem is it won’t live up to the expectations of those who have seen an iPad or Android tablet in action and want one of their own.


buying a cheap tablet pc

Google Play, the marketplace for Android, currently boasts around 500,000 apps. While the iTunes App Store boasts at least 650,000 apps. Microsoft cannot claim anything close to that amount of Windows 8 apps yet, but it may get there one day. The point is by sticking to the popular platforms you’ll be able to get all the apps you have seen others use and want to try for yourself. By opting for an alternate OS your choices will be severely limited.

There is something else to watch for with apps: The cheaper Android tablets aren’t officially licensed to install Google Play. With Google Play being open-source they’ll still have it installed, it just won’t be the full version. Some apps therefore won’t show up in searches, as I found out for myself when I purchased a cheap Android tablet earlier this year.

Resistive Vs. Capacitative

buy cheap tablets online

There are two types of touchscreen available, both on tablets and smartphones. Resistive touchscreens are more accurate and better for using with styluses, while capacitive touchscreens are faster and more responsive. Neither is bad, but they do offer different experiences.

I’d argue that for tablets intended for mainstream consumers a capacitative screen is by far the better choice, which is why the iPad and the other premium tablets all feature capacitative touchscreens. However, many of the cheaper tablets being sold have resistive touchscreens that will severely hinder their usefulness for any activity that requires fast, fluid controls. Even Web browsing will be somewhat of a chore.

Connection Issues

buy cheap tablets online

There are two things related to Internet connections you need to consider when buying a cheap tablet.

The first is rather obvious but could be missed by ignorant/n00bish people. No 3G/4G. Most cheap tablets will be Wi-Fi-only, so don’t buy one expecting to be able to use it anywhere and everywhere without first needing to tether it to a smartphone or turning your phone into a wireless hotspot.

Secondly, some cheap tablets will have poor Wi-Fi range compared to the premium competition. This is something else I discovered for myself only after buying a cheap Android tablet. If I use it while sat in the same room as my router then it works just fine, but if I head to the kitchen or (shock, horror) dare to venture upstairs, the Internet slows to a crawl until it becomes useless.

Battery Life

buying a cheap tablet

The latest version of the iPad boasts a battery life of up to 10 hours. As does the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. And the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity can last up to an astonishing 14 hours on a single charge. Cheap tablets don’t offer anywhere near that, with most topping out at six hours, and many offering between two and four hours for anything other than simple Web browsing.

Coupled with the Wi-Fi issue outlined above this means cheap tablets are generally only suitable for using indoors where a power outlet and router are both close at hand.


This article isn’t intended to put you off buying a cheap tablet as a whole. In fact I’m an advocate for researching all the products that are available and purchasing the one that best suits your individual needs at a price you’re comfortable with paying. But there are pitfalls to buying a cheap tablet, some which won’t show up until after you’ve actually got your hands on the device you eventually settle on.

This is therefore a reminder that things are sometimes too good to be true, and there’s ultimately a reason for a gadget being priced lower than you’d expect it to be. These are the five main potential problems you could encounter with a cheap tablet, but there are likely many more. To be absolutely sure of not being ripped off it may be better to spend a little more and buy a Google Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD at this point. Or an iPad Mini, if you’re that way inclined.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! What you gonna do today? Roasted turkey, tasty stuffing, vegging out watching the Macy’s Day Parade… what could be better? Perhaps a family-friendly flick to help you through your food coma? Here are a few movies to get your family in the mood for even more turkey! 


10. Pocahontas

pocahontas-movie-still-475x357-pr-02 476x357An English soldier and the daughter of a Native American chief end up making beautiful music together in 16th century Virginia.

MPA Rating: G

Details: Directed by Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg, this movie features the voices of Irene Bedard, Judy Kuhn, Mel Gibson, and David Ogden Stiers. Was released in theaters June 23, 1995; on DVD May 3, 2005.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: Youngsters in your household will love this beautifully animated tale filled with toweringforests, rugged cliffs, and sparkling waters, set against a backdrop of lovely tunes like “Colors of the Wind” and “Just Around the Riverbend.” The message: It’s never too late to learn something new and be thankful for it – just as John Smith learned of nature’s peace and harmony from Pocahontas.


9. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

charlie-brown-thanksgiving-movie-still-475x357-pr-01_476x35.jpgPeppermint Patty has never been shy, but who would have guessed she’d be so bold as to invite herself over to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving dinner? When she arrives she has a lot of expectations and demands…which send Snoopy and the gang into a scramble.

MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Details: Directed by Bill Melendez, this movie features the voices of Sally Dryer, Peter Robbins, Christopher Shea, and Tracy Stratford. Was released on TV Nov. 20, 1973; on DVD Oct. 7, 2008.

Why You’ll Be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: It teaches kids that when you sit down at the Thanksgiving table, it’s good to be grateful for all that you have—even if your meal is just toast and popcorn.


8. Winnie the Pooh - Seasons of Giving

winnie-the-pooh-season-of-giving-movie-still-475x357-pr-03_.jpgOur favorite Winnie the Pooh characters learn to embrace the winter season and cherish the holidays that make this season so special.

MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Details: Directed by Ed Wexler, Gary Katona, Harry Arends, Jun Falkenstein, and Karl Geurs. Was released on DVD November 4, 2003.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: This is a great film for your young ones to learn the true meaning of holiday festivities and the importance of spending quality time with family and friends.


7. Mouse on the Mayflower

mouse-on-the-mayflower-movie-still-475x357-pr-01_476x357.jpgThis Thanksgiving tale takes you on a musical voyage to America with the tiniest pilgrim ever!

MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Details: Directed by Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin, Jr., this movie features the voices of Tennessee Ernie Ford, Eddie Albert, and John Gary. Was released onVHS Sept. 8, 1993.

Why You’ll Be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: Sure, we’ve all heard about the pilgrims and their voyage to America, but there’s more to that story than meets the eye. Even the tiniest creature has something to be thankful for, as demonstrated by a mouse who hitched a ride on the Mayflower.


6. Pieces of April

pieces-of-april-movie-still-475x357-pr-01_476x357.jpgWhat happens when the black sheep of the family invites her dying mom and estranged clan to her apartment for Thanksgiving dinner? For April Burns, a few things she expected…and a few she didn’t.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details: Directed by Peter Hedges, this movie stars Katie Holmes, Derek Luke, Oliver Platt, and Patricia Clarkson. Was released in theaters January 19, 2003; on DVD Feb. 24, 2004.

Why You’ll Be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: If your family could use some pointers on getting along during holidays, pop this movie into the DVD player after your turkey dinner is through. Although the Burns family doesn’t always see eye to eye –-ok, they’ve rarely seen eye to eye-– Thanksgiving dinner presents an opportunity for them to put aside their differences and come together as a family. Not a bad lesson for the rest of us.


5. The New World

the-new-world-movie-still-475x357-pr-01 476x357This epic film is a dramatized (and romanticized) telling of the relationship between English explorer John Smith and the Native American princess Pocahontas.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details: Directed by Terrence Malick, this movie stars Colin Farrell, Q’Orianka Kilcher, Christopher Plummer and Christian Bale. Was released in theaters Jan. 20, 2006; on DVD May 9, 2006.

Why You’ll Be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: Even though most of the English settlers are distrustful of the Native Americans, John Smith is able to form a deep friendship with Pocahontas. And hey, if they can do it against all odds, the rest of us can certainly find a way to co-exist with everyone else on the planet.


4. Hannah and Her Sisters

hannah-and-her-sisters-movie-still-475x357-pr-01_476x357.jpgA husband who’s in love with your sister, an ex-husband who’s in love with your other sister, and an all-around socially inept family that seems to attract the worst possible relationships…yep, it’s a Woody Allen movie.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details: Directed by Woody Allen, this movie stars Barbara Hershey, Carrie Fisher, Michael Caine, Mia Farrow, Woody Allen, and Dianne Wiest. Was released in theaters Feb. 7, 1986; on DVD Nov. 6, 2001.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: As with most Woody Allen films, this one touches on mortality, relationships, and the meaning of life. But since it takes place between two Thanksgivings, it also works on another level: we should all be thankful for the ability to invite new relationships into our lives and let go of others that have run their course.


3. Planes, Trains & Automobiles

planes-trains-autmobiles-movie-still-475x357-pr-01_476x357.jpgNeal Page (played by the ever comical Steve Martin) is heading back home to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family. Unfortunately he has bad luck on one side, and Del Griffith on the other! This shower curtain ring salesman’s endless talking doesn’t help as they face a series of unfortunate events.

MPAA Rating: R

Details: Directed and written by John Hughes, this movie stars Steve Martin and John Candy. Was released in theaters November 25, 1987; on DVDNovember 21, 2000.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: Don’t they say that it’s all about the journey and not the destination? This movie will have you laughing and appreciating your family this Thanksgiving.


2. The Little Orphan

the-little-orphan-box-cover-475x357-pr-01_476x357.jpgIt’s classic Tom and Jerry laughs in this Hanna Barbera tale. In this animated cartoon, it’s Thanksgiving Day and Jerry is entrusted with an orphan named Nibbles– a little guy with a gigantic appetite. Unfortunately, Jerry’s cupboard is bare.

MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Details: Directed by Joe Barbera and Bill Hanna. Was released in 1948. The entire collection is 323 minutes and was released on DVD Feb. 22, 2008.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: This short flick helped make Tom and Jerry a household name. What’s charming about this mini-flick is that Tom and Jerry succeed in turning what otherwise might be a humdrum Thanksgiving into a feast of laughs.


1. Home For the Holidays

home-for-the-holidays-box-cover-475x357-pr-01 476x357You know those families who insist on getting together for Thanksgiving year after year, even though they know it’ll only stir up trouble? Meet the Larsons, a family who’ll barely survive this Thanksgiving, only to do it all over again next year.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details: Directed by Jodie Foster, this movie stars Holly Hunter, Robert Downey, Jr., Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning, and Dylan McDermott. Was released in theaters Nov. 3, 1995; on DVD Sept. 4, 2001.

Why You’ll be Thankful That Your Family Watched This Film: This film is for anyone who’s ever dreaded spending Thanksgiving with their family. Sure, there are other options, but even the kookiest, most demanding families are bearable on some level. And as the Larsons’ family gathering demonstrates, Thanksgiving is for being grateful for all those folks you’d like to run away from most of the time.

HTC and Verizon have joint launched the Droid DNA, a 5-inch smartphone hybrid with an amazing 1080p resolution. Now it starts to book and in November 21st, it would be available. Before purchasing, let's first look into the differences from other phones.

Here is a comparison of the 4 popular phones.



The biggest attraction of the new HTC Droid DNA is definitely its screen. It has the delicate extremely 440ppi display, and the view angle of the screen and brightness are better than the Galaxy S3 Super AMOLED. But turning the brightness to maximum, the iPhone 5 is the brightest. And compare with the other 2 Android phones, Nexus 4 would get longer Android updates since it's using the new coming Android 4.2 system.

Tangled normalized tangled, choose the phone that you want. So, Which phone would you choose to buy? And would you buy the Droid DNA?

This is an article from Lifehacker, and I think it's pretty helpful, and let's share it in my blog.


Dear Lifehacker,
My wife just got her first iPhone, and I want to streamline everything we do: share our contact lists, calendars, task lists, grocery lists, etc. so we don't have two versions of everything floating around. How can I do this? I want as much of our daily info as collaborative as possible.

Bringing a Luddite to the Light

Dear Bringing,
Being able to collaborate on stuff like this is one of the things that makes smartphones so great, and it's useful for more than spouses, too—roommates, family members, and other friends can benefit from this level of sharing too. We've shared a number of collaboration tools over the years, but here's a rundown of how to share your most important info on iOS and Android.

  • Contacts: Sharing your address book is one of the tougher options, but it isn't impossible. You can easily share your contacts by syncing them with iCloud, then just adding both iCloud or Google Contacts accounts to each phone. Of course, this requires that your spouse be logged into your iCloud or Google account, which isn't ideal for everyone. Soocial is an alternative, which syncs contacts between multiple Gmail accounts or Macs. It's free for 250 contacts and 3 sources, but costs $5 a month for more.
  • Calendars: Google Calendar makes it insanely easy to share calendars with multiple people. Just click the arrow next to any calendar, choose "Share this Calendar," and enter their email address. Be sure to give them permission to make changes, so they can add and tweak calendar events too.
  • Task Lists: A ton of different to-do apps offer collaborative lists; it just depends on which one you want to use. Check out ourfive best group task lists for a list of the best—most people recommend just using a shared Google document. You should be able to find something that suits your needs, though.
  • Grocery Lists: You could just use a shared document like with task lists, but there are some great collaborative shopping apps out there. We really like Grocery IQ, and it's pretty easy to use once you get it all set up. Plus it syncs with iOS, Android, and the web, so you can both access your list no matter where you are.
  • How Can I Sync All of My Contacts, Calendars, and Other Data with Someone Else?Photos: If you want to keep your photo libraries in sync, you have a few options. If you both use iPhones, than Apple'sShared Photo Streams are pretty cool: you basically create a Photo Stream and add your partner to it. After that, every photo you send to that stream will appear on their phone. Alternatively, if one or both of you is using Android phones, you can just use Dropbox. The Dropbox mobile app can automatically upload new photos you take, and you can just share that folder with your partner via the Dropbox web interface. Then you'll both have one, unified folder of all your photos.
  • Everything Else: These aren't the only things you can share, but the other options are too numerous to list here. Sharing travel arrangements is easy with TripIt, for example, and there are a number of good tools out there for sharing your budgets. And, for anything else, you can also just share an account with your spouse—with the same login and password, you can each access nearly any kind of service out there (as long as your comfortable with both of you having full access).
  • Hopefully this gets you started. You can find a collaborative version of just about any app if you do a little searching, but this should get you most of the important stuff shared between you. Good luck!
