Suggested January 2024 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Vs Huawei P30 Pro: Which One Is Right For You?

Let’s start with the new Galaxy Notes. The “true” Galaxy Note, that succeeds the Galaxy Note 9, is actually the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. In fact, Samsung would have been better off naming these phones the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Lite. But everyone’s launching Pro and Plus iterations, so it’s no surprise that Samsung followed suit.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Let’s talk about headphone jacks


Samsung certainly goes all out with the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. It comes with a 6.8-inch display with a QHD+ resolution and curved edges that are even more prominent this time around. The punch hole camera makes its way over from the Galaxy S line, but it’s now centered and smaller. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9825 chipset depending on the market, and 12GB of RAM. 256GB or 512GB of high-speed UFS 3.0 memory is available that can be expanded with a microSD card.

Apart from the design and the processing package, the Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t bring as much to the table. The smaller 6.3-inch display has a lower Full HD+ resolution. It comes with “only” 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 memory, with no higher RAM or storage options available. Surprisingly, the microSD slot is exclusive to the Plus edition too. Making a rather contentious choice, Samsung has unfortunately decided to remove the headphone jack from both phones.

Keeping everything running on the Note 10 Plus and Note 10 are 4,300mAh and 3,500mAh respectively. They support fast charging (45W for the Plus and 25W for the regular) and fast wireless charging (15W for the Plus and 12W for the smaller phone). The reverse wireless charging feature is available with both.

HUAWEI EMUI 10 hands-on impressions: Snappy and subtly improved


The phone runs EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9 Pie. EMUI has evolved from the iOS clone it used to be to a feature-rich and well-designed user interface. It’s chock full of features of course, with everything from a way to keep specific files and apps locked to a turbo gaming mode. You can find out more about everything EMUI has to offer here.

Galaxy Note 10 vs HUAWEI P30 Pro: And the winner is…

Usually, Samsung’s Galaxy Notes have no trouble running over the competition, but it’s certainly closer now than it has ever been. This actually has more to do with how far HUAWEI has come and not that Samsung has fallen behind in any way.

That said, I’d still give the leg up to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series in this comparison. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus, in particular, impresses in every way. It doesn’t get any better in terms of raw power, Samsung’s displays and cameras are going to be outstanding as always, and something like the S Pen isn’t found with any other high-end offering.

Things are a lot more even when the Galaxy Note 10 is pit against the HUAWEI P30 Pro. Full HD+ screens and the same RAM and storage (but UFS 3.0 with the Samsung). Again, the unique proposition here is the S Pen, but if you’re okay without it, the HUAWEI P30 Pro is equally worth considering. The HUAWEI P30 Pro is slightly cheaper than both though.

Google Pixel 7 Vs Samsung Galaxy S22: Which One Should You Buy?

Google Pixel 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S22

No, you’re not having déjà vu. Yes, the Google Pixel 7 and Samsung Galaxy S22 do look that much like their respective predecessors. Repeated designs have been a common theme throughout 2023, marked only by slight changes from one model to the next. Both devices hold onto great features like IP68 ratings, stereo speakers, and premium materials, but there are no headphone jacks, and you’ll want to look elsewhere if you like a new look from year to year.

In Samsung’s case, the apple fell so close to the tree that it might as well be a shoot of bamboo. The Galaxy S22 is almost identical to the Galaxy S21, with a Contour Cut camera bump, satin glass (yes, real glass) finish, and a glossy Armor Aluminum frame. It’s so similar that the best way to tell the Galaxy S22 apart from its predecessor is with the color options, which we’ll return to in a bit. One notable change, however, is that the Galaxy S22 is slightly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S21, with a smaller display to match.

Google’s physical changes are slightly more visible, though not much more impactful. Where the Google Pixel 6’s camera bar was black and hid its camera lenses, the Pixel 7 now features a color-matched metallic option with a small cutout for the lenses. The result is somewhat of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Beach effect, like one large eye looking out of a mask. It’s flanked by two matching pieces of Gorilla Glass Victus, which means we’re back to life without two-toned Pixels.

Hardware and cameras

Since the designs and displays haven’t changed much, you might be expecting larger tweaks under the hood. To an extent, you’re right, but the updates aren’t much more impactful than your average year-to-year upgrades.

The Google Pixel 7 sticks to its newfound Tensor fame, moving from the original chipset to the new Tensor G2. It marks a new generation for Google’s state-of-the-art AI, but its priorities haven’t changed. The Tensor G2 is built with Google’s custom TPU and now relies on lower power consumption for everyday activities like video streaming, speech recognition, and messaging. Google claims that the new chipset is up to 60% faster, but we’ll put that to the test once we have our review unit.

On the other hand, Samsung adopted Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset for the US and select markets, while an in-house Exynos 2200 occupies the Galaxy S22 for the rest of the world. Both phones pair their processor with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of fixed storage — sorry, no microSD slots here.

Ryan Haines / Android Authority

Google spent much of its upgrade power last year, bringing 50MP primary and 12MP ultrawide lenses to the Pixel 6 series. The same duo is back this year, with some updated Tensor G2 power at its disposal. That means Google still relies on Samsung’s excellent GN1 sensor, so it’s safe to expect some of the Pixel’s familiar imaging prowess. Around the front, Google upgraded the traditional 8MP selfie shooter to 10.8MP — in line with the Pixel 7 Pro.

Samsung switched its strengths around for the Galaxy S22, bringing most of its megapixels from the telephoto lens to the primary one. It’s still behind the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 108MP beast, but now you can use the 50MP wide sensor for most of your shots. The lens is joined by a 10MP telephoto lens and a 12MP ultrawide lens, with a 10MP punch hole selfie shooter on the front. Either way, you’re looking at two of the most capable camera phones around.

The hardware may be similar, but Google and Samsung have entirely different approaches to image processing.

As mentioned in the design section, shrinkage hit the Pixel 7 and Galaxy S22 this year. It means smaller, more manageable displays, but it also means smaller batteries. The Samsung cell shrank from 4,000mAh to 3,700mAh while retaining its 25W wired and 15W wireless charging speeds. Google’s Pixel 7 took a similar hit, dropping from 4,614mAh to 4,355mAh. Unfortunately, Google is vague about its charging speeds, only offering that you can gain about half of your battery in 30 minutes with Google’s 30W charger. Both devices do offer reverse wireless charging, at least.

Price and colors

Google Pixel 7 (8/128GB): $599

Google Pixel 7 (8/256GB): $699

Samsung Galaxy S22 (8/128GB): $799

Samsung Galaxy S22 (8/256GB): $849

Google continues to lap the competition when it comes to pricing its flagship. The Pixel 7 still starts at $599, right where its predecessor did. That means it’s still $200 more affordable than Samsung’s base Galaxy S22, though both offer the same options for storage and RAM. If you want to bump your Pixel 7 from 128GB of storage to 256GB, it’ll raise your price to $699.

Samsung deserves credit in its own right for keeping the Galaxy S22 pricing consistent. It’s in line with the Galaxy S21’s launch price of $799, while a bump to the 256GB model raises your rate to $849.

Which will you buy, the Google Pixel 7 or the Samsung Galaxy S22?

586 votes

In this day and age, price matters, too, and Google has a clear lead. Its Pixel 7 kicks off at just $599 — a full $200 less than Samsung can muster.

That said, Samsung offers one of the best update commitments in the business, just ahead of Google’s promise. One UI and Pixel UI are among our favorite software experiences, though it’s up to you to determine whether you prefer Samsung’s onslaught of features or Google’s limitless options for customization.

Airpods Max Vs Airpods Pro: Which One Should You Buy?

After a lot of leaks regarding AirPods branded headphones over the past few months, and a bunch of reports trying to leak what they will offer, Apple has finally launched the brand new AirPods Max via a press release. These are the first pair of wireless over the ear headphones in the AirPods line and offer some impressive features. However, they are also priced at a mind-numbing $549 (Rs.59,900 in India) which puts them well out of the typical AirPods territory. So, if you are in the market for new Apple earphones, and for some reason are confused between getting the AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max, here is a detailed, down to the nitty-gritty details, comparison of the AirPods Max vs AirPods Pro.

AirPods Max vs AirPods Pro: What’s the Difference?

As annoying as it is that Apple decided to call its decidedly audiophile-territory headphones AirPods Max, the headphones themselves offer some impressive features, and some major upgrades over the AirPods Pro.

My personal opinion on the name, however, is whoever at Apple is incharge of naming these things needs to expand their list of acceptable words beyond Pro and Max. The Max is acceptable (somewhat), when it’s being used for a device that’s basically the same as another, but bigger — like the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It’s still just an iPhone, with a bigger screen. The AirPods Max however, aren’t just jumbo-sized AirPods. They are an entirely different category of audio accessories, and they should have had a better name than this.

But enough about my rant over the AirPods Max name, let’s jump into the differences. We are comparing the AirPods Max and AirPods Pro on multiple fronts, and you can use the table of contents below to jump to any section you are interested in.


Both the AirPods Max and AirPods Pro support phones all the way down to the 1st generation iPhone SE, which is great. However, if you’re using the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s/6s Plus, or iPhone 7/7Plus, you should know that you won’t be able to use Audio Sharing with those phones.

To be honest, in all my time using AirPods Pro, I’ve never once used audio sharing. So I’m not sure if that’s really something you’ll miss, per se. But if you do want to use that feature, you’ll have to upgrade to a newer iPhone.

iPad mini 4 and iPad mini (5th gen)

iPad Air 2 and later

Apple Watch Series 1 and later

Where the AirPods Pro seem to vanish into thin air while you’re using them (to the extent you might forget you’re wearing them if you’re not listening to music), the AirPods Max will never let you forget you’re wearing a pair of $550 headphones on your head. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is for you to decide based on what you want from your earphones/headphones.

The AirPods Max, being headphones, are obviously much heavier, coming in at 384.8 grams. In comparison, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 (currently $278) weigh 253 grams. However, those aren’t $500 headphones, and the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro (currently $549), a pair of ~$550 headphones, also weigh 370 grams.

Speaking of design, we can’t ignore the colours. Probably the only place where we can actually compare AirPods Pro and AirPods Max in terms of design without it being like comparing apples and oranges. So the AirPods Pro are only available in a white color, which is fine. However, if you wanted a darker colour, or something different, you were out of luck. Fortunately, the AirPods Max come in five different colour options — silver, space gray, sky blue, pink, and green.


Both of them support Apple’s really easy one-tap set up with your iPhone. You get hands-free Siri (which is more useful than you’d think) and automatic message readouts using Siri. Plus, features like Active Noise Cancellation and Adaptive EQ (more on both of these features later).

The AirPods Pro and Max both support automatic music pausing and playback depending on whether they are in your ear (or on your head), or not. While the AirPods Pro do this using a combination of optical sensors and accelerometers, the AirPods Max use optical and position sensors on each ear cup.

The end result is essentially the same. Your music will pause when you take the headphones off, and resume when you put them back on.

Playback Controls and Siri

One of the things that have changed with the AirPods Max is how you control music playback, volume, and invoke Siri on your headphones. The AirPods Pro have pressure-sensitive stems that you can press to play/pause music, skip tracks, enable/disable active noise cancellation etc.

I feel fairly neutral about the Digital Crown on the AirPods Max, but it does offer a really useful feature — volume control. Believe it or not, the AirPods Pro don’t have built-in volume controls. You will either have to use your iPhone’s volume rocker, or ask Siri to change the volume. Both of those methods are less than intuitive. However, with the Digital Crown on the AirPods Max, you can simply rotate it to change the volume. That’s definitely going to prove useful.

Active Noise Cancellation

What’s more, while the AirPods Pro use just one external mic on each earbud to measure outside noise and cancel it out, the AirPods Max have six such microphones, and two inside, for a total of eight mics working in tandem for noise cancelation, which should result in better ANC as well.

On the AirPods Pro, you can switch between ANC and Transparency modes by long pressing the stem, while on the AirPods Max there is a dedicated button to switch between the two modes.

Sound Quality

The AirPods Pro delivered slightly better sound quality than the AirPods, and it’s reasonable to expect the AirPods Max to sound much better than the AirPods Pro as well. After all, you get a huge 40mm driver within these ear cups as compared to the tiny driver inside the AirPods Pro. Plus, with the memory-foam ear cups you can be assured of an amazing sound seal around your ears which will also help with sound quality. At the end of the day, headphones usually sound better than earphones, and when the price difference is that stark — $250 vs $550 — they had better sound pretty damn amazing.

Getting a little further into the driver, though, Apple has used a custom Apple designed dynamic 40mm driver for the AirPods Max. It also has a dual-neodymium ring magnet motor, which Apple claims is modelled after the ones you’d find in high-end floor speakers. That, along with the H1 chip’s computational audio prowess thanks to its 10 audio cores, should result in pretty amazing sound quality.

That said, where the AirPods Pro were competing with high-end in-ear headphones like the Sony WF-1000XM3 (currently $168), the price tag associated with the AirPods Max puts them in a remarkably more difficult position.

These headphones aren’t competing with high-end consumer grade headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM4 which are priced at around half the price of the AirPods Max. No, these headphones are in audiophile territory thanks to the pricing, and competing with similarly priced offerings from Beyerdynamic, Shure, and Sennheiser is not an easy task.

Still, Apple is completely capable of actually making great sounding speakers, heck the 16-inch MacBook Pro has the best sounding laptop speakers. However, Apple’s pricing is usually much higher than market prices, so the chances of these headphones actually offering what audiophile equipment offers are low. Plus, they don’t even come with a 3.55m cable in the box, or a port to connect it to. You will have to spend $35 to get an official Lightning to 3.5mm cable for the AirPods Max.

Water and Sweat Resistance

Battery and Charging

That said, the AirPods Pro do come with a charging case that can charge them multiple times for a total battery life of 24 hours. Now here’s the clincher. The AirPods Max do come with a Smart Case in the box. However, this case can’t store any charge and recharge your AirPods Max on the go.

Instead, when you put your AirPods Max inside the case, they go into a very low power state to conserve battery life. That’s useful too, but not nearly as useful as a case that recharges your headphones.

However, it’s understandable as well. The AirPods Pro case weighs ~46 grams. Imagine how heavy the case for a 380 gram pair of headphones will have to be to charge them over even once. Moreover, the AirPods Max already offer 20 hours of battery. That’s quite close to the 24 hours you get with the AirPods Pro with a charging case.

Both the AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max charge via Lightning cables though, and Apple includes a USB Type-C to Lightning cable in the box with the AirPods Max. It’s a shame though, that a pair of high end headphones don’t support USB-C charging.

Service and Repairs

Apple hasn’t specified the out of warranty repair cost for the AirPods Max. But if the AirPods Pro cost $89 to fix as compared to $69 for the AirPods, I’m sure the AirPods Max are even more expensive.

That means, getting AppleCare+ is a logical choice, considering it’s priced at $59. And for that, it adds two years of extended warranty, battery repair, and you only have to pay $29 per service, which is great.

Which One Should You Get?

Taking a leap from the AirPods Pro to the AirPods Max isn’t a tiny price jump. It’s a full $300 more. So you need to be very sure if you want to buy one. I think the AirPods Max is for people who want the magic of AirPods along with best audio experience and a long battery life. Yes, with the case, AirPods Pro offers a comparable battery life, but if you are on long flights, you don’t want to take your headphones to charge them every 4 hours or so.

AirPods Max vs AirPods Pro

It’s hard to look at the AirPods Max and not wonder whether they will do as well as the AirPods and the AirPods Pro. Those offerings from Apple have become ubiquitous in the consumer world. At $550, Apple seems to be targeting a luxury audience. One that’s likely to get the headphones as a status symbol more so than anything else.

Vga Vs Hdmi – Which One Is Better?

Due to this growing requirement for display quality, the older and relatively low signal-quality VGA interface is now on the verge of extinction. It has now been almost completely replaced by the superior HDMI interface.

Nevertheless, there are still devices and display unit that consists of the VGA. And it still has its significance in a few areas. So, how exactly does the VGA vary from the HDMI interface? And which one should you choose? Let’s find out.

VGA, or the Video Graphics Array, is one of the oldest display connections developed by IBM, which came to use in the late 80s IBM computer. It transmits the video signal in analog form. This display controller has been the common type of interface to transmit video signals to the monitor, and almost every display device incorporates one.

The VGA connector consists of a bulky design with 15 pins divided into three rows. It works by transmitting the Red, Blue, and Green video signals along with Vertical and Horizontal sync information. In the later upgrades, it also consisted of VESA signals to identify the type of display units as well.

VGA has received several upgrades from different manufacturers with improvements in maximum resolution support for monitors and signal quality. These are named VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, UXGA, QXGA, etc.


Slightly less input lag

Useful to get a display from older computers



Low bandwidth, image quality, and resolution

Inconvenient due to bulky design

No audio transmission

Signal interference or cross-talk

HDMI, or High-Definition Multimedia Interface, was the first display controller to transfer both digital visual and audio signals using a single cable. Released in 2002, the HDMI interface has now become a norm in almost all monitors, gaming consoles, and other display units.

The commonly used Type-A HDMI, among the five types, consists of 19 pins. These pins are responsible for transmitting the audio, video, and pixel clock data after being inserted into an HDMI port. It works as per the principle of Transition Minimized Differential Signaling, or TMDS, which divides the video signal into pixels and uses links to transmit the RGB color and the divided pixels as a pixel clock.

HDMI has also received several upgrades after HDMI 1.0, with 2.1 being the recent one, with superb bandwidth and support for the highest refresh rate and resolution.


High bandwidth, resolution, and refresh rate

Better video quality and zero or less interference

Both audio and video transmission

Convenient and easy insertion

Available in almost all modern systems

Longer cable length


Cannot be used directly to get display from older systems

Comparatively more input lag

Relatively expensive

The major difference between the VGA and HDMI interfaces is in their image quality, with HDMI being the better one.

Similarly, HDMI is hot-pluggable, meaning you can insert or remove it while the system’s running, and you won’t experience any disturbance in the signal. However, the image quality will degrade, or the display may not even show up if you try hot-plugging the VGA connector.

Besides these, let’s discuss what features and functionality separate these two interfaces.

VGA connection can transfer the video signal data at the rate of 14 to 116 MegaHertz. This bandwidth varies for different versions, with VGA having the lowest transfer rate and UXGA the highest.

As per the bandwidth, the standard VGA version supports a display resolution of up to 640 x 480. While the QXGA version can provide a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536. Similarly, the standard VGA interface can attain a refresh rate of up to only 60 Hz.

Nevertheless, for the upgraded VGA versions, one can obtain a slightly higher refresh rate of up to 85 Hz for a lower-resolution display.

VGA VersionsBandwidthResolution and Refresh RateVGA14 MHz640 x 480 @ 60, 75, 85 HzSVGA27 MHz800 x 600 @ 56, 60, 72, 75, 85 HzXGA48 MHz1024 x 768 @ 60, 70, 75, 85 HzSXGA60 MHz1280 x 1024 @ 70, 75, 85 HzSXGA +79 MHz1400 x 1050 @ 70, 75, 85 HzUXGA87 MHz1600 x 1200 @ 60 HzQXGA116 MHz2048 x 1536 @ 60 Hz

Looking at the HDMI interface, the commonly available HDMI 2.0 can transfer the signal at up to 18 Gbps, while HDMI 2.1 have a transmission rate of whooping 48 Gbps. It even surpasses the faster DisplayPort 1.4.

Not only this, you can achieve a maximum resolution of 8K and a refresh rate of 240 Hz for 1080p resolution. Let’s have a quick look at the bandwidth, resolution, and refresh rate for the two interfaces.

HDMI VersionsBandwidthResolution and Refresh Rate1.0 – 1.2a4.95 Gbps1080p @ 60 Hz1.3 – 1.4b10.2 Gbps4K @ 30 Hz or1080p @ 144 Hz2.0 – 2.0b18 Gbps4K @ 60 Hz or1080p @ 240 Hz2.148 Gbps8K @ 30 Hz or4K @ 144 Hz

Input lag is the time elapsed between the reception of a signal and its appearance on the screen. In the case of the HDMI interface, the digital signals are post-processed in terms of color and other effects for better image quality. But the analog signals from VGA are shown as they are received. This post-processing can cause a slight input lag in HDMI.

However, the lag is not that significant. It is in a few milliseconds, and you would not even find any differences. To add to this, when you use a VGA connection in a digital display unit, the analog VGA signals also take a while to get converted into digital signals. Thus, the VGA interface also seems to have input lag.

Also, the input lag mostly depends upon the monitor and display unit rather than the connection type. So, if we look at the imperceptible time of lag, Input lag and latency do not make much of a difference.

Talking about signal quality, the VGA interface experiences a lot of signal interference from other system components. This is because the VGA carries the information in the analog signal, and these pick up noise from other cables and electrical parts of the computer.

In the past, most of electronic devices used a VGA interface. So, to lower the interference, the VGA cable is provided with a cylindrical extrusion. Similarly, the I/O Shield at the back of the motherboard also prevents signal interference from internal components and other cables of the PC.

HDMI interface is able to transfer both audio and video from the same cable and port. It even supports up to 32 channels of audio signals and HD Audio, such as DTS and Dolby.

However, VGA is able to transmit only the video signal. You will need an additional audio cable and port on the system to share the sound. Even after using a VGA to HDMI converter, you will have to get an additional audio cable to get the sound signals.

VGA cables can transmit image and video signals in their original quality within a distance of 25 feet. Beyond that, the signal quality starts to degrade. However, there are VGA cables longer than 150 feet in the market though you won’t get better quality.

But the recommended length of an HDMI cable is up to around 50 feet or 15 meters, up to which you won’t experience any quality degradation. The digital signals in the case of HDMI do not get lost a lot in comparison to the VGA analog signals.

The higher quality signals, refresh rate support from the HDMI and its longer cable length make it the ideal choice for display at a farther distance.

VGA interfaces are mostly compatible and found in older displays and gaming consoles. You may not find an HDMI port in those systems. So, if you possess such hardware, then you may want to use the VGA, and the HDMI cables might be useless. In addition to those systems, the projectors still use the VGA interface.

Similarly, you can find HDMI in modern displays, consoles, TV, and other electronics. Almost all display and audio-needing devices are HDMI-friendly nowadays. Yes, some of these systems still provide one VGA port, but the transition is getting faster due to the excellent signal quality of HDMI. So, VGA cables have become pretty much obsolete at the present time.

So, while HDMI is almost used in every display unit, VGA is mostly employed for a multi-monitor setup, screen projection, etc.

Having said that, there are converter cables available in the market, such as VGA to HDMI and HDMI to VGA. You can use these to use a VGA cable on an HDMI port and vice versa.

Being a bulky design, the VGA connector needs to be locked into the port with two pins on its side. Without the lock, the connector gets loosened easily, hence, distorting the image quality and color. Sometimes, the display will not even come up on the screen. This makes the VGA quite inconvenient as you need to make sure of a tight connection behind both the monitor and the system.

However, the HDMI does not require such pins to tighten it. You can simply insert the connector to the monitor and the motherboard or GPU, and it does not easily come off as well. There is a chance of a loose connection, but it is quite unusual. And you do not have to worry about having the video signal disturbed.

Being the oldest type of display interface, VGA cables are quite cheap and easily available in the market. HDMI cables are quite costlier than VGA. The cost of the new HDMI 2.1 cable, with its fastest bandwidth, is incomparable with the old and slow VGA cable.

But nowadays, you can find a cheaper HDMI cable of an earlier version in the market. And they do a fine job in comparison to the VGA cables.

Besides both being a display controller and interface for video signal transfer, there are not many similarities between VGA and HDMI.

Samsung Galaxy J3 Vs Coolpad Note 3 Lite Comparison Review

Specifications Comparison

Design & Build

In terms of the design and build quality of the devices, the both feature a plastic build with removable back covers. They both feature plastic rims with a chrome finish to give it a metallic look, but they both are actually plastic only. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite comes with touch capacitive navigation buttons on the front of the device, whereas the Galaxy J3 comes with a physical home button on the front along with the two navigation keys on the either side of the button.


The display size on both these smartphones is 5-inches and the resolution on both of these displays is 720p, but they differ in the type of displays that they offer. The Samsung Galaxy J3 offers a Super AMOLED display, whereas the Coolpad Note 3 Lite offers an IPS display. The color and viewing angles on the Super AMOLED display are much better than the ones of the IPS display.

Even in outdoor direct sunlight, the visibility of the Samsung Galaxy J3 is much better than the Coolpad Note 3 Lite. Both the displays were legible in direct sunlight, but the one on the Galaxy J3 was much more brighter because of the Outdoor mode in Display Settings. When launching the camera on both the smartphones, the visibility of the Coolpad Note 3 Lite fell drastically as almost nothing was visible on the screen, but on the Galaxy J3, everything was clearly visible.


The camera on both these smartphones is different in a lot of respects. The camera on the Galaxy J3 is an 8-megapixel shooter, whereas the secondary camera is a 5-megapixel shooter. The camera on the Coolpad Note 3 Lite is a 13-megapixel shooter and the secondary camera is a 5-megapixel shooter.

In terms of the image quality that we can expect from both these phones, they are comparable in outdoor lighting, but when it comes to low lighting, the Coolpad Note 3 Lite performs a bit better compared to the Samsung Galaxy J3.

Battery Performance

The battery on both these smartphones is comparable. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite has a 2500mAh battery whereas the Samsung Galaxy J3 has a 2600mAh battery. The good thing about the battery on the Galaxy J3 is that it is removable and this means that if you ever run out of battery, you can just change it with a new battery that you have lying around.

In terms of the actual battery performance, I ran the Lab 501 battery test on the phones to play the same video for 15 minutes. After these 15 minutes, I recorded the battery drop just to get an idea about their battery performance. I did the same thing for the Browser test in the app where I ran that test for 10 minutes each on both these smartphones. Here are the results.

Extra Features

The Coolpad Note 3 Lite offers a fingerprint scanner, which the Samsung Galaxy J3 lacks. The fingerprint scanner is a must have in any smartphone these days as it adds to the security of the device to a great extent. Also, the Coolpad Note 3 Lite has 3GB of RAM, which is straightforward double than what the Galaxy J3 offers.

Pros & Cons

Samsung Galaxy J3 Pros

Great Outdoor Visibility

Decent Camera

Removable Battery

Samsung Galaxy J3 Cons

No Fingerprint Scanner

Only 1.5GB of RAM

Coolpad Note 3 Lite Pros

Fingerprint Scanner

3GB of RAM

Coolpad Note 3 Lite Cons

Not so great Outdoor Visibility

No Removable Battery


Overall, both these smartphones are good in their own aspects, but if I have to choose one myself, I’ll choose the Coolpad Note 3 Lite just because of the Fingerprint scanner, more RAM and better low light camera performance in our testing.

Samsung Galaxy Tab: Which Carrier Will You Pick?

Let’s face it; compared to current Apple iPad users, prospective Samsung Galaxy Tab owners are going to suffer from an embarrassment of choices. Not only will Samsung’s new 7-inch tablet device offer features the iPad doesn’t such as mobile video chat, Adobe Flash support, and high-definition video playback at 1080p resolution (the iPad supports 720p), but it offers a choice of carriers.

That may sound great, but with great choice comes great responsibility (or so I’ve been told). Luckily for you, PC World regularly tests each carrier’s 3G network for speed and reliability across the nation. PC World’s most recent 3G network tests included “51,000 separate tests covering 850 square miles of wireless cell coverage servicing 7 million wireless subscribers.”

So let’s take a look at some cold, hard numbers for major cities in each region of the United States to see how the big four–AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon–measure up.

But First, a Caveat About PC World’s 3G Network Tests

PC World and our testing partner, Novarum used two types of tests. As PC World Senior Associate Editor Mark Sullivan explains, PC World “connected to the 3G network [in each city] via both laptops and smartphones. The laptop tests accurately measured the capacity and performance potential of a given network, while the smartphone tests approximated the real-world connection speeds users of these popular devices might experience, given the less-powerful processors and 3G radios that the devices contain.”

So, remember that the laptop test only shows a network’s potential, while the smartphone test is the closest approximation of real-world results you might experience.

East Coast: New York City Midwest: Chicago

AT&T and Verizon also tied for the most reliable Chicago network in PC World’s laptop test. When it came to network speed, AT&T blew away Verizon with an average 1568 kbps down and 831 kbps up. Verizon, by comparison, supported 886 kbps down and 425 kbps up.

South: New Orleans

Moving south, Verizon won the most reliable network in the Big Easy’s laptop test, but AT&T had the fastest download speed at 1665 kbps down and 801 kbps up. In the smartphone challenge, AT&T was the most reliable at 93 percent, but AT&T’s 1160 kbps download speed couldn’t match Verizon’s average at 1380 kbps.

Orlando’s results were similar to New Orleans in terms of reliability and fastest speeds.

Southwest: Phoenix

T-Mobile was the big winner in Phoenix, tying with AT&T at 100 percent reliability on the laptop test. But T-Mobile won top marks in the smartphone reliability test, scoring 97 percent. Its download speeds were also the best, with T-Mobile in Phoenix offering 1201 kbps on the laptop test and 909 kbps in the smartphone challenge. But if you’re going to be uploading a lot of photos or video over 3G in Phoenix then AT&T might be the network for you. AT&T’s laptop and smartphone upload tests were tops at 697 kbps and 211 kbps respectively.

West: Denver West Coast: San Francisco

The people of San Francisco often complain about their cell phone service, arguing that the hills in and around the city make it a nightmare for cellular network providers. Looking at the test results you can see why the people of San Francisco often complain.

Pacific Northwest: Portland

That’s a quick look at the network speed numbers across the U.S. based on PC World’s most recent network speed and reliability tests. But don’t forget that network speed and reliability, while important, is just one factor to consider.

All prices being equal, however, which carrier would you pick for your Galaxy Tab?
