Top 5 Eco-Friendly Smartphones In The World

Today’s tech-savvy youth are aware about the environmental issues surrounding us and have been making a conscious effort to curb them in their own way.

Fortunately, smartphone manufacturers have been doing their bit by releasing smartphones that ensure they are causing least amount of harm to the environment.
.
.
.
And to facilitate it even further, we bring to you top 5 eco-friendly smartphones. These smartphones are judged on the basis of the hazardous chemicals like mercury, lead, cadmium, etc. used in the manufacturing process, the final product, and its degradable capabilities.

 

1. Samsung Galaxy Ace
.

.
Samsung has always been at the forefront of being environmentally conscious. So much so, it encourages consumers to give old smartphones so few parts can be re-used in new handsets. Taking this even further, Samsung’s Galaxy Ace is considered to be one of the best ones out there that reduces environment damage drastically.
.
.
.
2. Sony Xperia
.

.
Sony has been dishing out one magnificent smartphone after another, especially after it parted ways with Ericsson, and it also reflects in its eco-friendly smartphones that have some of the lowest levels of hazardous materials found around. The new range that comprises of the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZR, Xperia SP have all passed the test of being one of the top eco-friendly smartphones in the world.
.
.
.
3. Apple iPhone 5
.

.
Come to think of it, this one is a surprise. Apple is known to make top-of-the-line products catering to the polished and sophisticated class. A piece of machinery desired by many, it is surprising that Apple puts in an effort to manufacture their products while keeping Mother Nature in mind. Their iPhone 5 is considered to be one of the top eco-friendly smartphones in the market, highlighting Apple’s attempt at doing their bit.
.
.
.
4. Samsung Captivate
.

.
Samsung strikes yet again at being proficient at manufacturing smartphones while having the environment in mind, and the next one in its line of eco-friendly smartphones is the Samsung Captivate. An Android-based Samsung phone like every other, the Captivate has the best and the safest of all the materials used for manufacturing a smartphone. Club that with a fairly decent battery life and that ensures you will be saving energy and conserving electricity as well.
.
.
.
5. IPhone 4S
.

.
Apple is on a roll by making a comeback in the list, and this time around with the iPhone 4S, considered to be at the top among the iPhone lineage. iPhone 4S has the best components and build that will hamper nature in the least possible way. As opposed to that, the first generation iPhone is considered to be the worst smartphone of all times in terms of ecological damaging capabilities. Having said that, Apple has definitely come a long way to help the preservation of our environment.

ChatHeads for all notifications – app for Android + My review :-/

image

With that out of the way, this is Floating Notifications Alpha 2 requires a CLEAN INSTALL

image

Theme’s can be found in this thread
How does it work

– Setup your settings in the UI.
– Then go to your System Settings -> Accessibility -> Floating
Notifications – Turn it on
You will see one test notification. You will see this ANYTIME
the service starts/restarts. This is there so A you know the
service has started and B so you can get a feel for how they
work. This will obviously NOT be in the final version.
Controls
– Tap to open the stack
– Tap the current notification to close the stack
– Tap the text of a notification to launch that app
– Drag the first notification in the stack to move around the
screen
– Double tap to close a notification
– Double tap a closed stack to close all notifications

App List

– Checkbox to enable disable
– Second icon is expanded notification text
– Third is stack messages (meaning show all or show only the
latest)
– Fourth is enable actions (JB+ if your notification normally
has any buttons they’ll appear)
– Fifth is wake the screen on notification
Sensitivity
– The double tap threshold refers to the amount of time in
milliseconds between taps. So if you set it to 1000 it will wait
one second for your second tap before it brings up the text.

Nokia asha 501 goes official

image

Stephen Elop just announced the new Nokia Asha 501 on the
stage of the Nokia press in India. It’s the first product of the
new generation Ashas with a brand new platform. The design
is inspired by Lumia and Nokia picked red as the signature
color.
.
The new Asha platform is based on the Smarter Phone
acquisition Nokia made a few years ago. The new interface
focuses on swipe events and a new feature called Fast lane.
.
.

image

The Nokia Asha 501 is made of only two parts to make it
more durable. The back is removableto access the microSIM,
the pre-installed 4GB microSD card (up to 32GB supported)
and the battery.
.
The phone packs a 3” QVGA capacitive touchscreen on the
front and a 3.2MP fixed-focus camera on the back.
.
The new Asha platform is a grandchild of the MeeGo OS. The
phone wakes up with a double tap. It features two home
screens – one is Fast lane, the other one is the app drawer.
.
Fast lane promises to show your present and your past.
Present includes currently running apps (yes, multitasking,
hell froze over), while Past shows messages and other
notifications you’ve received.
.
The 501 focuses on 2G connectivity as large parts of
emerging markets still rely on the slow mobile Internet. To
help with that, Nokia expanded the Xpress functionality on
S40. The Asha 501
.
features Wi-Fi connectivity for faster local connectivity. 3G-
enabled Asha 5xx phones will launchlater.

.
The new Nokia Asha will be a very social platform with
Facebook, Foursquare, Linkedin, Twitter,Youtube and more
will be available out of the box.
.
There’s going to be a dual-SIM version too. The second SIM
card is exchangeable without having to remove the battery, a
feature Nokia was keen to point out is unique to them.
.
The Nokia Asha 501 measures 99.2 x 58 x 12.1mm and
weighs 98g.
.
The new Asha platform is hugely efficient – the 501 features
up to 17 hours of talk time and 48
days of standby.
.
Price:Rs.5300/-

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, S4 mini and S4 Active to be announced at the end of May

Samsung must be quite busy these days as it’s helplesslytrying to keep information leaks from happening. However, the company doesn’t seem to be doing a great job at that and so we already know that the camera-centric Galaxy S4
Zoom, rugged Galaxy S4 Active and mid-range Galaxy S4 mini are all in the works.

According to the unofficial info that’s currently available, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is to be released sometime in the summer. When it comes to the release dates of the other two, the sources have been a bit more specific, claiming that both the S4 Active and S4 mini will come out in July. Whether or not that is indeed going to be the case, we can’t be sure.

Samsung fan-site SamMobile, though, has now published a new rumor going that Samsung is to announce all three devices by the end of this month. This information is important because it provides more credibility to the previous rumors about the release dates. A period of about a month or so between announcement and launch seems perfectly believable for Samsung devices. Even though all three models have the Galaxy S4 branding, they are all expected to sport mid-range specs, although
each will good at something. For example, the Galaxy S4 Zoom is expected to have a very capable camera in order to rival strong competitors from Nokia and Sony, while the Galaxy S4 Active will aim to be a rugged smartphone
without much compromise in the design department. The Galaxy S4 mini, on the other hand, will be a more compact solution for those users who aren’t into the gigantic
smartphones of today.

Android Key Lime Pie repotedly delayed

According to a trusty source inside
Google, Android Key Lime Pie is
going to be delayed by 2 To 4 months, and won’t make it in time for the Google I/O 2013 conference.

The report comes from
GadgetTronica , who mention that the reasons for the delay isn’t so much in the development of the OS update, but rather Google trying to give OEMs a chance to get as many of their phones to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as possible.and due to KLP delay Nexus 5 will probably delayed.
