After all this time trying to understand how to use and understand the needs of the Android device users, I dedicate the following article to all colleagues who may wish to try to pick the right Android devices as needed, whether in relation to employment or lifestyle.
There are some parameters that can be considered in selecting an Android device. Here are my 10 parameters that is worthy of consideration.
First, of course the price. Prices will be closely linked with the inventory of existing budget. The first consideration is passable if the Price or Budget no longer be a big problem to choose the Android device. For the consideration of price, I partitioned into three. High, Mid and Low Budget Mid. The higher the price or budget that is owned, then the Android device can be selected to be more and more types and abilities. So far Android device already adopted a dual core processor (Optimus 2X), AMOLED display (Samsung Galaxy S) or a tablet with a vast widescreen (Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1). Budget in Mid, filled with products that are taken into account the ability of very decent but still reachable by the bag. Well, there's Samsung ACE Galaxy S5830 that I have or LG Optimus One or Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro. While on Low Budget, the products offered at very tempting but still adopt a smart operating system. Say like the Galaxy Mini, LP Optimus Me or Sony Ericsson X8.
Second, I choose Brand. The more well-known brands that carry the Android device will be directly proportional to the price to be paid. Say HTC or Sony Ericsson's market share is usually diligent fill High Budget. Then there is Samsung, LG and Motorola that go on all fronts. While in the local brands are Imo, Nexian and CSL are averages can be said to be very affordable. The Brand usually too closely tied to the UI (User Interface), the raw materials or even the special features offered.
The third is the screen size. What I mean here is the width of the touch screen becomes an absolute requirement that an Android device. The more wide-screen has the more expensive price to be paid. Android for mobile devices in general ranges from 2.5 "s / d 3.5". Included in the Premium range phone category 4 "s / d 5" while in category Tablet range 7 ", 8.9" s / d 10 ". The wider area of the screen, the more comfortable to use anyway.
Ranked fourth is the version of the Android operating system provided on the device. In 2011 It�s already very rare Android devices are still using version 1.5 or later known as Cupcake Donut or version 1.6 as a main selling in new condition. Minimum version 2.1 Eclair, or that it is common even become a standard 2.2 Froyo, while the 2.3 Gingerbread (gingerbread) and 3.0 Honeycomb can still be said to be very rarely used, except for premium mobile phone or tablet device. The more the new version of the operating system used, the more convenience / advantages are obtained. Say Tethering or Portable Hotspot feature, or even separation between applications with Games Storage.
The fifth is the screen resolution. Here I divide it into three, between the standard resolution of 240 x 320 or vice versa (Galaxy Mini Samsung, LG Optimus Me, Galaxy Pro and Fit), medium with a resolution of 320 � 480 (Galaxy ACE and Gio) and the coolest was 480 � 800 or more (Optimus 2X, Samsung S Galaxy II, Galaxy Tab). The larger the screen resolution, yes more expensive price. The larger the screen resolution you have, then the level of the device compatibility with many applications and games would be even greater.
Ranked sixth is the Processors. For this one will be directly proportional to the device performance while doing multitasking jobs (a lot of activity at the same time). The bigger the processor, so the fewer pauses / lag that may occur during the activity. There are still devices using 500 MHz processors, but which became today's standard is 600 MHz or are even slightly larger, 800 MHz. While that is classified as High Budget, there is already an adopted 1 GHz, 1.2 GHz and even LG Optimus 2X Dual Core uses as its main propulsion engine.
The seventh is the type of screen used, whether or not already support MultiTouch. To these considerations will have much effect on consumption patterns, particularly relating to the Browser, Photo, Document, or maps. It would be easier if the screen can adopt features Pinch to zoom in / small scale.
Ranked eighth is the Internal Memory. For this one needs an understanding of the technical spec that is included in each device. There are only providing about 200 MB (Samsung and LG devices in the medium), 512 MB (on average dominated by Motorola) or even 1 GB and more (HTC, Samsung or Sony Ericsson). Internal Memory scale will greatly affect the number of applications that can be installed on the device, especially if it still adopts version 2.1 Eclair. Like it or not by default will be shared also with the Games.
On the ninth I take the amount of power that will cover all the above considerations and activities. The average is still struggling in the amount of 1300 mAh. Even more, at best, the range of 1500 or 1650 mAh. Except for the tablet device that I think it was above 2,000 or 4,000 mAh. Amount of power will greatly affect the strength of a cell phone or device to Standby either online or in a state of full activity. Age power to use online activities continuously, more or less the same as the Blackberry device, if not even more lavishly. Moreover, if the user activates the GPS feature it anyway. But for the occasional online activities (can be set using the APN On / Off as well as Advanced Task Killer), can actually increase the durability of the old.
The last but not least, the Design. To this one may actually be a primary consideration after price, but believe me, if the work or lifestyle is the main needs, yes it has to be a major consideration.
