If you love your smartphone’s camera, and want to take things up a notch, the Galaxy Camera is perfect for you. Running Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean), the Galaxy Camera is the exact opposite of what we’re used to seeing today. Instead of a smartphone camera, it’s a camera smartphone (without the actual phone capabilities). How does this work? Does it really have anything to offer that your plain old smartphone doesn’t? We took the Samsung Galaxy camera for a test drive to find all that out. And as usual, one of you will get extremely lucky and win this $430 camera for free!
The Oppo N1 is an Android phone that runs CyanogenMod out of the box and has hardware features you won’t see on any other phone, like a rotating camera and a rear touch panel.
A complete Android system for your TV – not a Chromecast, not an adapter for your phone – no additional hardware required. Android “TV sticks” are mini computers running Android. They have no screen, instead they output directly through HDMI to your HD television. They’re pretty powerful little machines – the equivalent of a mid-range Android tablet – and easily outgun a Raspberry Pi for only a few more pennies. There’s a wealth of existing Android apps to choose from – so is it worth getting one, and precisely what can you do with them?
Want a cheap, high-end Android smartphone? The recently released $350 BLU Life Pure strikes a great balance between price and performance for an unlocked phone.
