Samsung Galaxy S III S Voice APK Leaked, Download Link Inside

Be apart of the launching date of Galaxy S III in the European, there is still a week or so away, how can we expect that the S Voice APK already leaked out? Same as many cases, the APK first appeared on xda developer forum. We must first declare that it can only operate on the Root devices of the Android 4.0 phone, the second is that we cannot ensure that it did not affect the security of mobile phones. According to the testing on Nexus S and Galaxy Nexuz, on the Nexus S, the search action is done, but when you try to use it to find the navigation route, it will stop response and shut the app down. In the Galaxy Nexus, more normal operation can be found. If you have interest the prerelease S Voice app, then try to download from the reference sources; the same thing to note, bear the risks by yourself and do not guarantee your experience is same as others.

Samsung Galaxy S3 has been launched on 3/5. It is the newest phone from Samsung. It is the successor to the previous version Galaxy S2. After its competitors have launched the high-end smartphone, such as HTC One X, Sony Xperia S, LG Optimism 4X. Its competitors have already using a Quad-Core Processor like HTC One X, which is using NVIDIA Tegra 3, perform extremely well in heavy loading tasks. We can ensure that a Quad-Core Processor will provide more than sufficient processing power to the smartphone, and to let it run extremely smooth. For android system, in micck’s opinion, it is better to have at least dual-core processor to power the device, it is the minimum requirement to have a good user experiences on Android OS (at least not lagging all of the time).

Google Drive vs Microsoft SkyDrive: Cloud storage battle detailed

SkyDrive_Desktop_Client-580-75

The cloud naturally represents the future of file storage beyond physical media, but the landscape is a little bit like International waters at the moment. Anything goes and everything is up for grabs.

Google and Microsoft have both made bold moves towards commanding the arena this week, aiming to battle some of the early dominance away from pioneers like Dropbox, which continues to improve its service and lurkers like Apple, Sony and Samsung.

Google’s service comes in the form of Google Drive, finally announced after months of speculation, which offers 5GB of service for free and up to 1TB for a considerable monthly fee, along with a host of neat sharing options.

 Microsoft_SkyDrive_Mobile_Apps-580-100

SkyDrive is Microsoft’s solution. The name has been around for a couple of years now, but Microsoft has significantly enhanced its offering, making SkyDrive an entirely new proposition.

Let’s take a look at which service offers the best option for you.

Google Drive vs Dropbox: Storage and pricing

As we mentioned Google is dangling the carrot by giving all Google account holders a free 5GB of Drive storage for your documents, photos and more. The company claims: “That’s enough to store the high-res photos of your trip to the Mt. Everest, scanned copies of your grandparents’ love letters or a career’s worth of business proposals, and still have space for the novel you’re working on.”

GoogleDriveShare-the-way-you-want-580-100

But its also savvy enough to know, that in this age, 5GB isn’t really enough. You can update to 25GB for a mere $2.49 (£1.54) a month and we’d imagine that’ll be the most popular option. Power users can grab 100GB for $4.99 (£3.08) a month, while a 1TB in the cloud will cost $49.99 (£30.80).

Perhaps mindful that Google will only be offering 5GB, Microsoft has cut its free SkyDrive allowance from 25GB right down to 7GB. Existing users will be able to adjust their account settings to hold onto that free storage, but new users will get just 7GB.

Redwood also opts for yearly price plans with 20GB for $10 (£6) a year. 50GB for $25 (£16) a year and 100GB for $50 (£32) a year.

Google has the advantage in terms of pure storage stage (it has also upped Gmail free storage from 7GB to 10GB), but Microsoft’s existing option is cheaper and offers more free space.

Microsoft has upped its file upload maximum size from 100MB to 300MB, whereas Google makes no mention of a maximum upload size within its launch documents, so that remains to be seen.

Yet another Samsung Galaxy S3 leak breaks cover

samsung galaxy s3 leak photos

Here’s a not-final dummy-unit of the Samsung Galaxy S3 that may or may not look something like what we’re going to see from Samsung on May 3.

Actually, the unit in question is quite clearly not what we’ll see hitting our shelves post-May 3, given that its plastered in notes and is generally agreed to be a dummy house for the much-anticipated smartphone.

What’s inside is probably more likely to be accurate – although fat lot of good it does us, unless any of you happen to have x-ray eyes and can hop a plane to China, infiltrate the manufacturing plant it came from and have a shufty at the handset for yourself. If so, call us.

Back to reality

The software shown is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), with Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay, complete with Twonky Server app (Samsung’s Airplay solution?).
