Home > Reviews > Top Phone Reviews: Tapping Those Screens for the Best Touch Screen Smartphone Comparison Of 2012


 Touch screen mobile phone draws all the heat and rage this time. Using this hot and good quality interface makes flipping through photos, navigating around web pages, selecting options and even typing more fun and engaging in any other ways. No more arguing with your phone’s keypad as you try to type a text message using individual buttons that represent three or more different characters because the whole process becomes eventually natural. Once you’ve become comfortable with the new interface, returning to a physical keyboard and trackball will feel clunky and restrictive. This tactile technology can be a little daunting to a user who is accustomed to physical buttons, keyboards and trackballs. However, with a little practice, almost everyone will become quickly adept at maneuvering through the information on their cell phone with just a touch. The good touch screen mobile phone will have a large screen, high resolution and a strong battery life. You’ll also want a solid, intuitive interface that doesn’t require memorizing an owner’s manual. When considering all of those factors and a few others, our favorite touch phones were Apple iPhone 4S, Motorola Photon and HTC Sensation.

 1. Apple iPhone 4S

  • You know how to use iPhone from the first time you pick it up. Because the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface in iOS was designed for your finger. The simple, beautiful Home screen is the easiest place to start. From built-in apps to over 500,000 apps available from the App Store. From making a FaceTime call to editing a video with iMovie. All the things that you touch and tap become utterly natural and simple.
  •  This touch phone will fit neatly into any pocket or purse and you will hardly notice it is there. It is 4.5 inches high, 2.31 inches wide and 0.37 inches thick. The weight of the Apple iPhone 4S is 4.9 ounces, which is one of the lightest phones we have seen in this review. Although the size is smaller, it still comes with a screen that is 3.5 inches, which is large enough to view your applications without any problem. Thanks to the same design size, this phone will fit right into your purse when you less needed it.
 2. Motorola Photon

  • If you believe phones are made to be rectangular then you are wrong – the Motorola Photon is actually an oblong octagon phone. Motorola Photon is 5 x 2.63 x 0.48 inches. The screen size, measured diagonally, is 4.3 inches. The power button and earphone jack are on top of the phone. As we mentioned above, the Motorola Photon has a kickstand on the back, which will allow you to position this touch screen phone almost anywhere that is comfortable for you. This photo and volume buttons are on the right side of the phone, and the USB and HDMI ports are on the left side. This touch screen phone weighs 5.6 ounces, which is a small heavier than most of its competitors, but not by much.
  • You can even view landscape mode either on the phone’s right-hand or left-hand side. The 960 x 540 resolution screen is one-quarter the size of a high definition screen. The aspect ratio is 16:9. You can view the Motorola Photon in portrait or landscape style.
3. HTC Sensation

  • HTC has announced the HTC Sensation XE, the first smartphone to benefit from the company’s Beats Audio partnership. Building on the original Sensation, the new Sensation XE adds custom audio processing hardware and software, as well as increasing the speed of the Android Gingerbread smartphone to 1.5GHz and boosting run times with a larger battery.
  • HTC Sensation XE will be bundled with a set of special Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones, along with either an 8GB or 16GB micro SD card for your music and video. When used with those headphones, the smartphone will automatically use the Beats by Dr. Dre  sound profile as the medium for audio playback, which HTC says is tuned specifically for them.
4. Motorola Droid Bionic

  • Motorola Mobility unveiled the new Motorola DROID BIONIC Android 2.2 mobilephone .The Specifications of Motorola DROID BIONIC Android comes with a 4.3 inch qHD (540 x 960) display and has a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor which will run at 1GHz, while 512MB of DDR2 RAM will make this phone tick and 16GB onboard memory storage which users can store a lot of music, pictures and videos. An 8 megapixel camera with HD video capabilities and a front-facing camera will make video calling a breeze. Entertaining is well covered with Adobe Flash and HTML 5 support. Well, as with HDMI output to your large screen TV.
  •  Motorola already reveals the xoom android 3.0 tablet and atrix 4g android mobile in the CES 2011.DROID BIONIC also features productivity tools such as Quick office for document review and editing, full calendar management, one-click access to conference calling, and a full suite of Google applications and facilities.
5. Samsung Droid Charge

  • Droid Charge touch phone is 5.11 x 2.6 x 0.46 inches. This phones we reviewed were slightly smaller than the Droid Charge, but its size is average. The Droid Charge’s weight is also average, at 5.04 ounces. The screen size is 4.3 inches diagonally. The display resolution for this phone is 800 x 480 pixels. The display on this touch screen phone uses Super AMOLED Plus. With the Super AMOLED Plus your screen will display more sub-pixels and translates these pixels into crispier and sharper images, a thinner display and a better view of the screen in bright light.
  • The Samsung and Verizon are finally issuing the upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the DROID Charge. It’s an over-the-air process and it may be staggered, meaning if you can’t get it right this moment you’ll be able to get it sometime soon. The forums are a-buzzing about the long-awaited update.
6. Samsung Infuse

  • Samsung Infuse one of the thinnest touch screen mobile phones available today. Only 0.36 inches thick, 5.15 inches long and 2.77 inches wide so it will easily fit into almost any pocket. This total weight of the Samsung Infuse is 4.9 ounces. You will hardly notice it when you put it inside you pocketed jeans or in your short while hurdling towards any places you want to be.
  • This cell phone has one of the larger screen sizes that we have seen, at 4.5 inches; we were a little disappointed to find that the resolution is only 800 x 480 pixels. Chances are, because the Samsung Infuse touch screen cell phone also comes with super AMOLED Plus technology, you will not notice the lower resolution too much.
7.  T-Mobile G2x

  • T-Mobile G2 has seemingly been announced and released just a few months ago, and now T-Mobile is ready to cash in on the name and get another G2 – but this time, it’s from LG. In a weird twist that must’ve left HTC heartbroken, T-Mobile will be offering the new LG Optimus 2X (which is the first phone to run a dual core Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip) as the T-Mobile G2X.
  •  If you’re not a HTC fan or don’t really care about the manufacturer of your new mobile phone, you’ll definitely like the new G2X. It certainly has everything one might need to be super productive and interested on the change.
8. T-Mobile myTouch 4G

  • HTC myTouch 4G is a solidly built cell phone that feels comfortable and secure in your hand. Measuring 4.8 x 2.44 x .43 inches, it has a slim profile nearly identical to our other favorite from T-Mobile, the Samsung Vibrant.
  • The solid build comes at the cost of weight, though. HTC myTouch 4G weighs 5 ounces, about an ounce more than the Vibrant’s 4.2 ounces. Whether you prefer the heavier, solid feel of the myTouch 4G or the lighter, more plasticky Vibrant will be a matter of personal preference.
 9. Motorola Atrix

  • The Motorola Atrix 4G on 4.5.141 Gingerbread 2.3.6 Firmware keep in mind that after rooting your gadget the warranty will obtain annulled & you can acquire it back only by applying 4.5.141 authorized factory firmware to your gadget.
  • This article is valuable only for the users who are using firmware of 4.5.141. If here the firmware edition is 4.5.141 & Gingerbread edition is 2.3.6 then it means that you can root your gadget & if not then this method is not for you.
10. HTC Evo 3D

A smartphone that sees the world like you do, in 3D now your photos can have as much depth as the moment itself. HTC EVO 3D captures your photos and videos in 3D, plus you can view them without the glasses. The stunning 4.3-inch qHD display gives you crisp websites, vivid images and incredibly fluid videos.
