So What Does STYLEZ Think?
Recently The Boy Genius himself, Jonathan Geller at BGR (Boy Genius Report), reports that Verizon's new fall 2012 lineup is proposed to include such flagship-worthy, smartphone eye candy as:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 - Exynos Quad-core processor, 4.7" HD display
- Motorola RAZR HD - 4.3-4.7" HD display and Quad-Core processor
- HTC's yet to be named phone-tablet - 1080P HD 5" display, Quad-Core KRAIT processor and HTC Scribe Pen
- Apple iPhone 5 - redesigned body, 1080P HD 4" display and an Quad-Core A6 processor made by, get this, Samsung
First off, I'm tired of hearing about these "redesigned" Apple iPhones that always only come with a few updates and the world goes crazy! Its annoying at best. At this point in the phone game its all about the bigger and more dense, HD screens so until a REAL iPhone comes out with a screen bigger than my thumb, I don't want to hear it. At this point, Apple at least did prove with iPad 3 that its time ALL devices break the Full HD barrier!
I'm excited about the prospects of that 5" HTC model which should compete nicely with either the current or next generation Samsung Galaxy Note phone-tablet. And for anyone thinking QuadCore is unnecessary in a phone, must have never heard of (Motorola) WebTop or Ubuntu for Android. These next-gen smartphones will need laptop and desktop quality specs with the inclusion of these full desktop OS's built into their underlying ROM or app space. That's the future of mobile phones!
That is what Stylez thinks! So what will get you excited about the next-gen smarthphones? More cores, bigger screens, better Apps, etc? Let me know in the comments!
