Are you looking for a bit cheaper but good smartphone of this year? HTC seemed to help you, HTC has recently announced their latest low-price HTC Desire 200 that sounds very good. The HTC Desire 200 is not really a high-end phone but I can say that it can be a good choice of your child, the HTC Desire 200 is a 3.5-inch phone featuring 480×320 resolution, it does include impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor clocked at 1 GHz and 512MB RAM.

The smartphone packs a Li-Ion 1230 mAh battery.
However the HTC Desire 200 doesn’t enjoy the LTE board, you have to fulfill wishes just only with HSPDA, it’s still a good sign. Can HTC miss Beats Audio? I don’t think so at least at this time, HTC Desire 200 comes with Beats Audio to give you a remarkable sound experience.
As usual, Samsung put the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version in action for their latest Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone that do not support the USB Mass Storage feature, however the Galaxy S4 enjoys the latest MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) service, you may say that MTP is a fine solution to share data between computer and smartphone but many of us don’t love it because of working errors. On the other side of this issue, UMS is a simple and fast way to transfer your files from Galaxy S4 to computer and even it is well-matched with almost all of computer’s operating systems. So we should switch back to USB Mass Storage on Galaxy S4?
The Samsung Galaxy S4 enjoys very useful features but it still doesn’t mean that you have nothing to add on phone to improve the usability like as we know well that many of us love to play flash videos and games but it is not possible on GS4 by the virtue of Samsung’s blocking case and even the Flash Player does not work on the pre-packed browser of phone. If you take a brief view of internet, you will notice the importance of Adobe Flash Player but it’s been removed from the Google Play Store.
So do you want to ignore the Flash Player at this time? I do not think so and this is the reason that might be forcing development community to find a way and they seem successful. We have a way to get rid of this irritating matter, as I said above that the Flash Player is not well-matched with stock Galaxy S4 browser but you can enjoy the same on third-party browser such as the famed Mozilla Firefox. However the flash player has been tested on Chrome and Dolphin browser and it doesn’t work.

How many rumors did we get about the camera-cum phone, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, in previous month? I can remember that I got a lot and finally we are on the goal, Samsung has just announced the Galaxy S4 Zoom officially, it’s same that we saw a few days ago.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is like a mini variant of flagship phone because of specs, in fact as the name shows us that the SGS4 Zoom is optimized for photographer, I think Samsung is might be skipping the second-generation Galaxy Camera this year and want to satisfy photography community with this latest innovative release as it does offer a bit more than a simple camera.
However let’s not beat about the bush and come to lovely Galaxy S4 Zoom camera phone, the Galaxy S4 Zoom packs a 16 megapixel camera sensor featuring a 10 times optical zoom that is enough for high-definition photography. The Galaxy S4 Zoom comes with optical image stabilization to take best shots, the GS4 Zoom combines a best photography experience with CMOS Sensor, OIS, Xenon Flash, and much more.

The LG Optimus G brings a decent bunch of specs and features but I won’t say the most top-rated phone it even runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and I don’t have official detail that whether LG will push Android 4.2.2 update to phone or not. However it doesn’t really mean that you cannot enjoy anything latest related from Android 4.2 version because it seems that the Android development community love to support all Android users, LG Optimus G users can update phone to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Avatar custom ROM released by a senior XDA developer member bippi79.
LG Optimus G Avatar ROM is CyanogenMod-based firmware so that you can experience all of stock features even XDA developer have packed a lot of other useful tweaks such as theme engine, Bazooka Launcher, Weebo, Framework and more.
I must say the upcoming Samsung Premier 2013 event is just to show-off hands-on of Samsung smartphones because Koreans have already released many of best smartphones for the year we expected. This time Samsung has released the third-generation entry-level Galaxy Ace member.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is dual-core powered Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphone of this year, Galaxy Ace 3 enjoys a 4-inch WVGA TFT LCD with the release of 480 x 800 resolution and packs a 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, a dual-core 1GHz processor (1.2GHz in the LTE version), and a Li-ion 1,500mAh standard battery.

The card games are also thought to be the only better option when friends combine and wants to have a fun time for hours along which ultimately changes into an endless joy which remains memorable for long.

The HTC One has squeezed remarkable place at Android market for this year and it gives impression to community that HTC can get the reputation back again even I must say that HTC seems successful in the way. The HTC One enjoys very powerful specifications and features but there are still various ways to improve the performance of phone such as custom ROMs that generates a lot of useful tweaks to experience new facts.
The ReVolt ROM for HTC One is really worthy to try at this time by the virtue of healthy box of tweaks, HTC One ReVolt ROM is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean based build, in fact it’s PACman-like ROM as it includes features of CyanogenMod, AOKP and ParanoidAndroid but it doesn’t mean you’re limited to them as the developer seems to add more features such as Per-App-DPI, Per-App-Color, Option to select Saving Location in Camera, Apex Launcher, and most interesting is Multi User Option.
The HTC One is remarkable innovative smartphone of the year to overcome problems, One seemed to manage a good status of reputation for HTC especially because of UltraPixel camera that we can use to crave the low-light photography. By the phone is being updated with various apps, tweaks, MODs and custom ROMs by development community to improve the usability like here we got a famed Slim Bean custom ROM for your HTC One.
The HTC One Slim Bean ROM is popular because of low weight as it’s very trimmed size, Slim Bean for HTC One size is just 100MB to 150MB as for, development team has removed a lot of bloatware from HTC One so that no unwanted may irritate you. Slim Bean is AOSP based Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM but packs many handy features.
However since this is initial release of Slim Bean ROM for HTC One, it may contains bugs but worry not because we hope that Slim Bean development team will iron out all bugs soon in near future.
The HTC One (M7) introduced a beautiful interface as BlinkFeed that brought the integration of top-rated social networks to stay updated every time, BlinkFeed stream them at the first door of your HTC One and it is gorgeous, am I right? But there are a few demerits of HTC One’s Facebook integration like the gallery app syncs all of your Facebook’s contacts profile and fill up the gallery with a lot of photos and people face troubles such as the senior XDA developer member Riyal but he tried to overcome this problem and got success.
He developed a simple MOD that prevent the gallery to download Facebook contact photos, he just leave social thumbnail because it drops a link to launch the part of galley that is good instead of photos, you can say that contact photos are now on-demand things as opposed to automatically loading. You may load the MOD with any custom ROM or simply install it yourself.
It seems that the HTC One (M7) is going to become the sweat dish of development community by the virtue of various compatibilities as the phone has gained S-off security hack which mean it can be written to, you can access to almost all areas of your phone’s system. Thanks to recognized XDA developer ieftm for sharing the work of Revolutionary’s work. Keep in mind that S-off enables people to easily break the phone, don’t S-off without any reason. If you are not aware with S-Off reasons, it gives SuperCID’s right that you can use to install any RUU on your HTC One like you can install the RUU of HTC One developer edition, RUU of HTC One Google Edition or any other you want. Simply I would like to say that having S-off on HTC One can make you able to install latest WWE & EU and RUU without wait for any carrier.
However if you are not familiar with basic knowledge of common Android tools, you should stay away. Revolutionary team with the help of revone tool did it as a preview, the method is pretty easy to understand with help of Linux-only utility or Windows ADB drivers.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was released in two colors, the White Frost and Black Mist, later Samsung added two new colors that are Aurora Red and Blue that I’ve seen as for but if you are not satisfied with any of them and looking for a new touch, worry not as you’ve landed on a very good place to get this task done. ColorWare can be a proved your good worker in this matter as they can give any color to your Samsung Galaxy S4, however it will run you a lot as you need to buy one unite of GSM unlocked Galaxy S4 that cost you $1000.
In fact you want a customized Galaxy S4 that requires a lot of work, it’s not really easy to give your favorite colors to Galaxy S4, the cute GS4 is reportedly went through a laborious process, worker will clean up phone, paint it, buff it and then you’ll get the final shape.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 seemed to be one very good tool to increase light in darkness, it does really improve your life style by the virtue of useful features but it doesn’t mean that developer’s topic is now hushed up and you have enough package, this is the reason developer community is cooking up more and more custom ROMs for Samsung Galaxy S4.
By now we are listing up ForceROM for Sprint Galaxy S4, the Sprint Galaxy S4 ForceROM is pre-rooted with latest SuperSU app, it’s De-Odexed and Zip-Aligned, Force ROM enjoys many tweaks to improve performance and battery life of your phone, the USB Debugging on by default, enhanced boot screen, ad-blocking, custom notification icons and boot animation, transparent notification bar for a beautiful look and feel, improved SMS/MMS limit and much more including official phone status.
Even the developer has removed so many unwanted bloatware from the phone so that you can enjoy more storage space to store your valuable files on your Sprint SGS4.
