Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

IPhone 4G V.S. HTC EVO 4G which is better player for DVD/Video?

Android and iPhone are always old rivals. So, not long after Apple Company released iPhone 4G, HTC released the HTC Evo 4G. But when the iPhone 4 hits retail shelves it will have to battle a gaggle of Android devices for consumer attention — the most significant of which is the HTC Evo. The Evo has one big advantage that Apple can’t beat. It runs on Sprint’s 4G networks, while the iPhone is stuck on AT&T’s 3G service. Sprint 4G, though, is not available in most major cities, including San Francisco and New York. If you are considering upgrading to the latest version of the iPhone or getting an Android device, take a look at how the iPhone 4 and HTC Evo 4G compare

Display
iPhone 4G: 4.5*2.31*0.37 inches with 3.5 inch screen and 960*640 pixel resolution. Apple's designers have also gone a more angular route, switching the old iPhone's rounded back for something completely flat and made from the same aluminosilicate glass material as the front panel. The new design aesthetic is topped off with a stainless steel border around the entire device.
HTC EVO 4G: 4.8*2.6*0.5 inches with 4.3 inch screen and WVGA 800*480 pixel resolution. The EVO is big - relatively speaking. And unlike the iPhone, it features a rounded back with softer edges, a protruding camera lens, as well as a built-in stand for propping the device up on surfaces.
Operating System
We know, iPhone 4G’s system is iOS and HTC EVO 4G is Android.
Apple’s iOS undoubtedly lacks the flexible open ecosystem of Android, which allows software like game console emulators that Apple has banned, but Apple holds the upper hand in selection, boasting 225,000 third-party apps to Android’s 70,000 or so, at last count. The latest release also alleviates some of the most frequent complaints about previous versions, like the lack of multitasking and folders for apps.
Connectivity
That “4G” in the EVO’s name isn’t just for kicks, although we happen to think it rolls off the tongue nicely. It’s actually the first phone in North America to ride on a blazing fast 4G network.
How much faster? HTC claims 10 times, but that’s based on comparing the very slowest end of average 3G speeds (600 Kbps to 1.7 Mbps), to the high end of its own 4G claims (3 to 6 Mbps). That said, even 3 Mbps is more than you could ever hope to wring from most 3G phones, and the EVO 4G can do things that the iPhone 4 just won’t, like videoconferencing without a Wi-Fi connection.
Camera
Both the iPhone 4 and EVO 4G sport both back cameras for snapping photos and front cameras for video conferencing. The EVO 4G gets the sharper vision on primary cam, shooting at 8 megapixels to Apple’s 5 megapixels, and on the front-facing cam, which shoots 1.3 megapixels to Apple’s VGA (0.3 megapixel) cam. Higher resolution doesn’t always mean a better camera, but we’ll have to give the EVO 4G the upper hand until launch time. The EVO 4G also supports a dual-LED flash rather than a single-LED flash, potentially making it more potent for night-time shooting.
For video, both cameras are capable of high-def 720p recording, but the iPhone 4 can shoot at a full 30 frames per second while the EVO 4G can only do 25.
And on the other aspect – Multimedia, with its’ build-in powerful multimedia player, iPhone 4G supports lots of audio and video formats. Such as: audio formats: AAC, Protected AAC, HE-AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible, Apple Lossless, AIFF and WAV. and video formats: H.264, up to 720 high-definition at a constant frames per second, Main profile up to level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 kbps, 48khz, stereo audio in .M4V, .MP4, and .MOV file formats; with ulaw audio format and PCM stereo audio in. AVI file format. And HTC EVO 4G’ player also supports a respectable range of audio and video formats. But, I find smartphones could not play DVD, including both phones. If you want to play DVD with smartphones, you may use [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/dvd-ripper.html]Nidesoft DVD Ripper[/url] which helps you convert DVD to all popular video or audio formats easily to convert DVD files into your favorite smartphone compatible formats or you have some video or audio files which your phone could not support in some case, you may select [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/video-converter.html]Nidesoft Video Converter[/url] to convert all other video files into your phones. It is powerful video conversion software which could convert video and audio files between all popular formats. With these two assistant software, you may enjoy your DVD or any video and audio files in your favorite smartphone at anytime and anywhere.
Storage
The EVO 4G comes with an 8GB microSD card preinstalled, but you can potentially expand it up to 32GB with a larger card. Unfortunately, 32GB models remain quite rare and you’ll need to drop at least $200 for one. By contrast, the least expensive ($200) iPhone 4 comes with 16GB of built-in memory, and it only costs $100 to upgrade to 32GB. The iPhone 4 wins on all accounts.
Battery Life
HTC hasn’t released complete battery life estimates for the EVO 4G, but we managed to get six hours of only on-and-off 4G data usage, while Apple claims the iPhone 4 will do six solid hours on 3G. Talk time also seems to suffer, with HTC claiming 360 minutes on the EVO 4G and Apple claiming 420 on the iPhone 4.
Price:
The EVO is available from Sprint right now for $199 if you sign up for a two-year contract, Premium Data plan, and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Sprint's plans range from $69.99 for unlimited data and 450 anytime minutes, up to $189.99 for an unlimited family plan that includes two lines. The required 'Premium Data' plan costs another $10 per month.
Apple will be releasing the iPhone 4 on June 24 to the tune of $199 for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model, both with two-year AT&T Contracts. Their plans range from $39.99 - $69.99 a month for voice and $15.00 - $25.00 a month for data. Or, if you've got the money, you can buy the iPhone 4 with no contract for $599 (16 GB) and $699 (32 GB)
Conclusion
HTC’s biggest bragging point – 4G connectivity – proves to be less of an advantage in real life than on paper after factoring in real-life network speeds and issues with 4G battery life. It also has a small leg up on the iPhone 4 in camera resolution, but less fluid 25fps HD recording also helps diminish that minimal edge. Meanwhile, the iPhone 4 is substantially smaller, has a higher resolution screen, and offers more storage for the money. So, which one do you like? You may select it by yourself.

How can I get my phone to work so I can facetime with an iPhone 4


Hi kebelinpined,
Unfortunately, Facetime is a proprietary Apple program, meaning that only iPhones and other Apple products can use it. On the bright side, there are alternatives. Many video chat apps exist for android(which runs on the EVO). A couple of the most popular ones are Fring video chat and Tango video chat. Simply download whichever one you'd like to try onto your phone, and have your friend with the iPhone 4 do the same. Personally, my experience with Fring was better, so i recommend trying that first. Also, something to look for in the coming weeks, hopefully, is Skype video chat for android. There is already a Skype app for iOS and android, but only the iOS version supports video chat. Android video support is said to be coming soon, and will probably be a very good option for video chatting with your iPhone toting friend.
