Powerful Android

Recently I wrote a post on “Dual Core Processors” that are being used in the recently launched and upcoming Smartphones worldwide. In this post I would like to introduce the 4 most powerful android smartphones which are available in across the World.

Powerful Android

2011 has been a year of dreams for Android enthusiasts.. A huge series of phones ranging from entry-level to high-end graphic enabled phones has been launched this year and a variety of phones are scheduled for launch in coming months. From LG to HTC, all have planned the launch of Dual Core powered or extremely powerful single core phones this year. In this post I will be covering 4 of the most powerful and feature rich phones currently available, so that you can decide which one suits your needs.

4′ high quality screens, high MP cameras, Full HD capabilities and the most powerful dual-core Android smartphones are some of the features common to all 4 phones.

4) LG Optimus 2X

LG-OPTIMUS-2XFeatured Specifications

Display: IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels, 4.0 inches

Memory: Internal 8 GB storage (up to 32GB via micro SD)

Camera: Primary 8 MP and Secondary 1.3 MP, Maximum 3264×2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash

Video: Yes, 1080p@24fps, 720p@30fps

CPU: Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, ULP GeForce GPU, Tegra 2 chipset

RAM: 512 MB

TheGeekDaily Verdict

A smart device from LG that claims it to be the world’s first dual core powered device, is instead a considerable device when it comes to Android! With its 8MP Full HD capabilities, dual display and Nvidia Tegra 2 graphic chipset, it is a good choice for those who are looking to buy a phone priced at $500. But LG has not shown much of its potential in this phone, IPS LCD touchscreen isn’t as awesome as retina display and resolution is quite low as well. 4.0 inches screen is a comfortable screen made with comfort as the main focus. At the price of $500 it isn’t a bad deal, though you can consider other 3 phones if you have a higher budget.

3) Motorola Atrix

Featured Specifications

Display: TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

Resolution: 540 x 960 pixels, 4.0 inches

Memory: Internal 16 GB storage (up to 32GB via micro SD)

Camera: Primary 5 MP and Secondary VGA, Maximum 2592?1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash

Video: Yes, 720p@30fps, 1080p (via future update)

CPU: Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, ULP GeForce GPU, Tegra 2 chipset

RAM: 1GB

TheGeekDaily Verdict

Motorola like LG has been launching good android mobiles in past but could not actually leave an impact on the market and user’s mind. But with Atrix, Motorola sure did it! Motorola Atrix is said to be Motorola’s most powerful Android phone yet. Features like Dual Core processor and a good 5 MP cam that could support Full HD recording are the high-lights. Not only that it houses a 1 GB RAM that can be utilized in future software updates to maximum. Atrix is launched with Android OS v2.2 and supports desirable flash 10.1 which is upgradable to v2.3 in future. Though this phone might be the most powerful android phone from Motorola but it isn’t the most powerful overall, with just 5 MP camera and good old TFT screen it doesn’t actually levels up with all its competitors which even pixalates on closer look. It also lacks basic radio FM feature. Not only that, phone doesn’t even operate when a sim card is absent, which is quite shocking for us. Atrix might be a choice for those who do not want to go for LG’s brand name and are willing a higher processor with RAM, keeping an eye on future updates!


2) HTC Sensation

HTC SensationFeatured Specifications

Display: S-LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

Resolution: 540 x 960 pixels, 4.3 inches

Memory: Internal 1 GB storage (up to 32GB via micro SD, 8 GB included)

Camera: Primary 8 MP and Secondary 1.3 MP, Maximum 3264×2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash

Video: Yes, 1080p@30fps, stereo sound recording

CPU: 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm MSM 8260 Snapdragon

RAM: 768 MB

TheGeekDaily Verdict

A power packed Android phone coming from a world-renowned company. A great phone recently launched priced at $600 with some awesome state of the art features such as S-LCD display and mediocre resolution is a blissful experience for eyes. A camera that shoots videos at 30fps even at 1080p is an added advantage for on the go directors and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor with dedicated GPU from Qualcomm separates it apart from its counterparts. HTC sense as usual is targeted to make UX easier and better like never before. Sensation has so many features to be praised that, I personally would not like to point out the drawbacks, but there are a few major once. It suffers from a serious death grip issue with WiFi and although the screen is awesome inside but hard to read outside. Also even though it’s a 1.2 GHz dual core powered phone but still the performance lacks when compared to other competitors. 8MP camera is impressive but not as good as that of LG Optimus 2x. All in all it is worth the investment of $600 if you are a HTC fan.

1) Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung galaxy S II

Featured Specifications

Display: Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels, 4.3 inches

Memory: Internal 16GB/32GB storage (up to 32GB via micro SD, 8 GB included)

Camera: Primary 8 MP and Secondary 2 MP, Maximum 3264×2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash

Video: Yes, 1080p@30fps

CPU: Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, Mali-400MP GPU, Orion chipset

RAM: 1 GB

TheGeekDaily Verdict

If you can afford a handset that is worth $700-$750 this phone becomes the obvious choice. It’s specification got my head to spin and will do so with yours. It’s super AMOLED screen works as awesome outside as it does inside, though with a smaller resolution. It’s image sensor with 8 MP is second to non and works flawlessly even at Full HD with 30fps. 1 GB RAM is something that you won’t find in any other model currently available in the market and which supports the heavy-duty processors very well. Audio quality is very good and supports standard 3.5 mm audio jack. It supports 21Mbps HSDPA and no death grip problem has been mentioned so far. But with advantages floating all around there are a few disadvantage which might turn you away if you are perfectionist and love things to be the same way – A plastic body steals away the credit and does not give phone a premium finish which should be worth an investment of $700+. Missing a camera button is again a disadvantage as the whole form factor is quite slim and it becomes difficult to take pictures and shoot videos.

In-spite of few disadvantages in Samsung’s Galaxy S II we rank it #1 because this post is about the most powerful android smart phone and so neglecting the form factor (which is the major disadvantage) this phone is the best smartphone available till now in Global Market.

We would be glad to hear your thoughts on these phones and your choice, share it with us through comments.

    Iphone is the best most intuitive phone on the market. Android operating systems are too complex for users. I want something simple, where my email runs through exchange server properly (not gmail) and where I don’t have to worry about widgets and wadgets…

      This post is about which phone is the most powerful. The iPhone doesn’t come close. The iPhone does have many other excellent features that make it the choice of many users around the world.

    You say “1 GB RAM is something that you won’t find in any other model currently available in the market” in regards to the Samsung Galaxy S 2 yet your own article shows that the Motorola Atrix also has 1 GB of RAM!

    Please proof read your articles in the future.

    I have heard that the SGS2 has heating problems. It heats up quite a bit during use, specially during gaming. It could be because it is so thin. May not be a flaw, but all the same … it’s an issue for the user.

    I read that the LG Optimus 3D was more powerful than Galaxy SII, maybe you should test that theory. I would be thoroughly interested!
