8. Mobile Phones 2014

Massive Confusion?

1. Pick a popular phone model that you know the LEAST about. List:  
          1. Model  
          2. Manufacturer/maker  
          3. Operating system  
          4. Service Carrier Options (Yep all of them) 

2. Describe the best or coolest features of this phone.  After learning about it.  Would you ever consider getting it?  Why?

3. Look at the infographics link. Gasp! Open up a few of the infographics.  Discover some fact that surprised you and share it.  

4.  What phone would you want if you could have any phone?

5.  What phone do you have now? 

I'm exhausted just thinking about all this!

READ THIS:  The links above are a guide.  There are NEWER and OLDER phones than listed in the links.  Feel free to do your own independent research! Just make sure it's a somewhat popular phone available in Arizona!

No repeats!  There are way too many phones out there!  So NO CREDIT will be given for repeats!  Read the posts of the people before you when picking your phone choice. 


  1. 1.
    a. Mi 3
    b. Xiaomi
    c. MIUI 5 (Android-based)
    d. Any provider that can provide a SIM card
    2. The screen resolution is sharp, it has a good processor and plenty of RAM, and it's fairly light for the size.

    3. The iPhone 6 Plus can get up to almost $1000? What?

    4. If I could have any phone, it would probably have to be a Windows phone; Microsoft has me with the whole "Cortana" thing, and I'd like to see the new Windows operating system on a platform where it WORKS PROPERLY.

    5. A home phone. I do not own a phone! I have asked my parents this question a LOT, but the answer always comes back the same; I need to pay for the plan myself.

  2. 1.Lava Iris X5
    b.Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat)

    2.It has a very good front and back camera. It seems like half of the main purpose of the phone is for taking pictures. The back camera has two LED flash. This is a amazing phone for pictures. I would buy this phone but the only flaw to me is it does not have 4G. One other thing is the Quad core and 1 GB of RAM. It runs very smoothly.

    3.There has been a increase in mobile open rates by 300% from 2010 to 2012!!!!!!!!

    4.I would want the LG G3 for its good camera and high processing power with a price as low as 99.99$

    5.Droid Charge

  3. 1.
    a. HTC Desire 610
    b.The manufacturer of the HTC Desire 610 is HTC aka High-Tech Computer Corporation
    c. The phones operating system is AT&T
    d. The HTC Desire 610 currently runs on Android 4.4

    2. The coolest feature, in my opinion, is the wireless charging feature and of course I would this phone because my current phone can't even send a picture to someone so turning down a smartphone is like a homeless man turning down a sandwhich because he doesn't like cheese.

    3. I learned that desktops went down by 5.5% in use I also thought that a 27.8% increase in smartphones would have been bigger than that.

    4. I would want the new or some of the newer versions of the i-phone.

    5. I currently have the Samsung Intensity 2.

  4. 1.Blackberry z30
    a.the manufacturer is blackberry enterprise
    b.the os is blackberry 10 os
    c.The only u.s carrier so far is Verizon wireless

    2. 2.its best feature is its battery life, which can be up to 25 hours FAR exceeding all of its competitors.I probably wouldn't get it since i prefer samsung phones.
      3.Its camera is capable of recording 1080p resolution videos,and it is equipped with a dual core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of ram both of which greatly exceed the iPhone
      4.I would love the galaxy s5, since everyone in my family has had the 3 and it was the best phone they have ever used
      5.i have a generic t-mobile flip phone,the model name is not listed nor supported

  5. 1. The one phone I admire is the Windows Phone. This device was desined by Microsoft built by HTC the Windows Phone is the equivilent to and acutall windows computer. The operating system for this phone is Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1.1.

    2. The coolest geature in this phone is the galaxy servent built into it, to be more technical i like the fact that you cannot remove the battery

    1. 1. The one phone I admire is the Windows Phone. This device was desined by Microsoft built by HTC the Windows Phone is the equivilent to and acutall windows computer. The operating system for this phone is Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1.1.

      2. The coolest geature in this phone is the galaxy servent built into it, to be more technical i like the fact that you cannot remove the battery. I would love to get this phone because i am a huge windows fan and i want to see how much this phone can handle.

      3. I was suprised at the precent of people downloading apps. This seems like it is fake because people tweet way more then they dowload apps. But this i is just my opininon I guess i wont judge statitics.

      4. I really would enjoy having this phone but ecause of my familiys do it your self type moral i would have to buy it meself.

      5. I have a Galaxy Discover.

  6. 1. -Moto X (Gen. 2)
    -Android 4.4.4 KitKat
    -Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile
    2. The newly added front facing speakers are probably the best feature of this phone. I love good sounding audio so this could possibly be a phone I would purchase.

    1. 3. The Sony Xperia Z3 powers a full 5.2 inch 1080p screen, and is still waterproof!
      4. If I could have any phone at this moment, I would get the iPhone 6, because I am a huge Apple junky. If I were to get an Android phone, I would either get the Moto X or the One Plus One.
      5. I own a basic LG flip phone (That I never use), and might be able to get a new smartphone, sometime in the next few months.

  7. 1.a)Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM
    c)Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1
    d)Any carrier that services Microsoft/ Windows phone
    2.) The best feature I found was how amazing that camera was. Both the front and the front and back cameras took beautiful pictures. The phone is made for work, so it would come in handy for school work. I would consider buying this phone because I enjoy taking pictures, but I usually unable to take some that I want to with, motion blur and lighting issues.
    3.)I was surprised to find out that Windows mobile devices are lagging behind while Android sales are sky rocketing. Also, Smartphones are becoming more and more popular with younger generations while Tablets are becoming more popular with the older generations of people.
    4.)I would want a Samsung Galaxy S5 if I could get any phone, because I currently have an older Samsung phone and I would love to stay with the Samsung products.
    5.)As of right now, I own a Samsung Galaxy Ring and I find it decently useful.

  8. 1.) Apple IPhone 6
    iPhone 6 (GSM/North America/A1549)
    iOS 8
    Verison, AT&T, Sprint

    2.) "A bigger, crisp display, improved LTE and Wi-Fi speeds, better camera autofocus, bumped-up storage capacities to 128GB at the top end, and NFC Apple Pay mobile wallet features on the horizon." -CNET
    -HD Camera.
    -Fast wifi speeds.
    -Better display.
    -More storage space.

    I'd consider getting it. Lot's of people use IPhones, but I haven't really looked at any other phones on the market. Many people say there are better choices than the IPhone. But with the recent bending with the IPhone 6, I wouldn't want to get it.

    3.) Couldn't log in through Twitter due to an Error that persists every time I try. Out of a glimpse of one, it says Windows Phones are going down in demographic.
    (every time I try to look at something it will put an annoying box on the screen, preventing me from doing anything :\ )

    4.) If I could have any phone Id either go for a Samsung or Apple phone based on what Ive seen. I still need a hands-on experience to tell which one I like.

    5.) I do not own a phone.

  9. 1. Apple iPhone 6 pulse, Apple, iOS 8, AT&T, Version.

    2. A bigger crisp display that improve the LTE and WI-FI. It has better camera autofocus and it bumps up the storage capacities to 128GB and the NFC Apple pays the mobile wallet.
    - Photo viewer/editor
    - Document viewer/editor
    - Audio/video player/editor
    3. I had trouble logging on to Twitter because of an error. It says that Window phones are going down in demographic. I try to look at something it will put an a super annoying box on the screen, preventing me me from doing anything.
    4. I could keep the phone I have now which is the iPhone 5c it is a great phone. It has great speed for the internet and it is also cool is that some on the apps are free. My iPhone 5c has a great camera, I have taken more than 500 pictures with my phone.

    5. The I have now is the iPhone 5c that I talk about in question 4. Still it is a great phone to have, the cool thing about my phone is that it as the weather app and other cool apps

      d. AT&T
      Virgin Mobile

      2. Accelerometer, Compass, Ambient light, Proximity, Gyroscope, Pressure, and GPS. I would love to get this phone. It is really cool and has tons of features I would love to try out.

      3. Women aged, 35-54 are the most active group in mobile socialization.

      4. I would want this phone, it is cool as heck.

    1. 1.
      a. Samsung Galaxy S5
      b. Samsung
      c. Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)
      d. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and MetroPCS

      2. The most popular feature of the Galaxy S5 is its extreme durability. Due to a multitude of features this phone has become one of the longest lasting ones on the market. The phone is composed mainly of plastic making it impossible to shatter as may other phones do. It is also one of the few devices with complete water and dust resistance allowing it to sit under 3 feet of water for around half an hour before having any effect and even after so, the damage isn't at all marginal.

      3. I found it both interesting and somewhat disturbing that use of mobile phones to view "adult" shows an extremely high peak at around 12AM every day. Considering most people are at work or school during this time this is quite odd.

      4. If I could have any phone I would most likely go with the HTC One M8 primarily for it's large data storage as well as processing capabilities.

      5. I currently own an iPhone 4s

  13. 1. a. LG Optimus Dynamic II
    b. LG
    c. android
    d. at&t

  14. 2. continued- I wouldn't consider getting this phone because my phone is very simular.

  15. 1)The LG G3 is made by android. It has the android OS or KitKat. AT&T, T-Mobile and Europe support the LG G3.
    2)The LG G3 by android has a feature where they a have removable battery and the graphics are great. I would not buy this phone, because it is out of my price range and fairly put not worth 600$-700$.
    3)More than fifty percent of the population that owns a smartphone does not make purchases after their first six months having it.
    4)If I could have any of the phones out this year I would pick the iPhone 6, because I am familiar with the IOS system and Apple products in general.
    5)I do not own a phone.

  16. 1. Samsung Galaxy S5 Active
    2. Samsung
    3. Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat)
    4. Only AT&T it is a special phone for them
    Dustproof and water-resistant, the Galaxy S5 Active has a rugged design that’s engineered for outdoor activities. I would consider getting this phone if i was using AT&T instead of verizon. It has better specs. Compared to my phone.
    3.People really only use their phones for social media and other random mobile items.
    4.Now looking at this phone I would prefer this phone over any new phone and old phones and over mine
    5. The phone i own now is the Samsung Galaxy Stellar it run jelly bean

      5. Droid Razr Maxx (hate it now)

  19. 1. XOLO Play 8X-1100
    Android OS v4.4

    to be continued

  20. 1.) Samsung Galaxy S5, Android 4.4.2, carried by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Cricket, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile
    2.) The Galaxy S5 has a fingerprint scanner, a 16 megapixel camera, and a streamlined custom interface. If I had money to shell out for a smartphone, I may consider the Galaxy S5 for its smooth interface and design.
    3.) Australian moms spend $132 million annually on digital media.
    4.) The Nokia Lumia 635
    5.) Samsung Intensity II

  21. 1) Xperia PLAY, Sony, Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread), AT&T T-Mobile

    3)One of the touch features is a psp like slide out gaming pad.
    4)If I could have any phone I would have the iphone 6 because I would like to change up the type of phones ive had because I have an android.
    5) The phone I have now is the Razr M. This phone was released in 2012 and still performs well but has some annoying kinks.

  22. 1.
    -Moto G
    -Kitkat 4.4.3
    - AT&T T-Mobile
    2. Motorola Moto G has one of the best screens you can get for the price, plenty of power for the everyday essentials, an easy to use, near-stock version of Android KitKat and the addition of 4G LTE and removable storage. No I would not get it because I do not want to pay the price and don't want to pay for data.

    1. 3. I was surprised that windows phones are lagging behind other phone makers, I thought is was interesting how older people use tablets more that smartphones, it was amazing how smartphone use increased 300% from 2010 to 2012.
      4. If I had a choice and I got it for free I would want to get the Galaxy Note 4 that comes out october 10th.
      5. I currently have the samsung intensity 3. I like its simplicity and fast texting abilities.

    2. 1) B15 Q
      -Andriod 4.4.2 KitKat
      - Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Virizon

      2) This is an average smartphone, but it's incredibly durable! This phone can survive drops from 100+ feet! CAT makes phones intended for construction workers, but anyone can buy these. You won't have to spend extra money on a phone case with this phone! I would actually consider getting one of these!

      3) 91% of people use mobile phones to socialize versus the 71% using desktops. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, or just sending messages, mobile devices take a huge lead.

      4) I think I would have to choose the LG G 3. I love the series of phones, and this newer model can multitask extremely well.

      5) I have the LG Optimus G

  24. 1.-ZTE GRAND X
    -Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean)

    2. the best feature of this phone is probably 2300 mAh battery for long-lasting performance
    Faster charging with Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0

    4.if i could have any phone id probably choose the galaxy s5 reason because not many phones are water proof or have watch on which allows you to use your phone as a tv remote

    5 i have the galaxy s4 and i like it alot its fast also has watch on and is able to open multiple apps at once thats probably my favorite feature of it

  25. 1.

    2. The phone is curved and i wouldn't get this phone because i like my phone much more

  26. 1.
    a. Motorola Moto G (4G LTE)
    b. Motorola
    c. Android Kitkat
    d. Cricket

    2. the only thing that stood out to me in the reviews was that the screen was good for it's price, of $199.99. My phone has a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution, the Moto G has a 1,280x720-pixel resolution. I think I will stick with my phone.

    3. The usage trends inphographic said that 62% of social media is pictures. This only makes me think of all the data it would take to store every selfie ever taken.

    4. I am not very interested in phones more tablets but if I had to pick one, the phone I have now makes things very simple for me.

    5. My current phone is the LG G3

  27. 1- Htc One(m8) - Android - Windows Phone Device - Android
    2- It has all your needs, and audio with a punch, It will be protected and it can be repair. It was crafted to perform and it may be better than an Iphone6. I would consider getting one consider all of its features.
    3- One pretty cool was with the Mobile Trends and after seeing that, that seems rather interesting.
    4- I i wish to have a phone it would be this one HTC(M8) since I beileve that other phones a bit shitty accept the windows 8 phone that looks pretty cool too.
    5- this question is pointless to me since i do not have one.

  28. 1.
    a. 7070
    b. Qtek
    c. Microsoft Windows 2002 Smartphone
    d. Mini-SIM
    2. The best feature is the infrared port. I would not get this phone for many reasons and one of them is beacause it is discontinued.
    3. Something I thought was interesting was that the internet speed increased by three seconds between last year and this year.

    1. 4. Windows Phone 8 only because of Cortana
      5. Nokia Lumia

  29. 1.
    a. SE-02
    b. Sharp
    c. Mini-SIM
    d. AT&T

    2. The coolest feature is the FM radio, I don't know much about phones so in my opinion this feature is nice.

    3. Something I thought was cool about android was that their were 6 million mobile subscribers currently which is really amazing in my opinion and I think this is going to keep growing rapidly.

    4. I would want the Samsung Galaxy just because I hear that this phone is great for watching media on the internet and the phone design looks very nice and I think it would fit me well.

    5. I don't have a phone but i'm looking to get one soon.

  30. 1. A) HTC One (M8 Eye)
    B) HTC

  34. 1.)
    a. Nexus 5
    b. LG
    c. Android
    d. Any Carrier, though you must buy it through the google play store

    2.) The coolest feature of the Nexus 5 is the fact that it comes with stock Android. This means that it doesn't have a skin over Android like the Galaxy S5 or other Android phones. This makes the phone run faster and get updates from Android much quicker than on other devices. Also, Android is a beautiful interface and very customizeable. Another awesome feature is the build of the phone, its sleek and looks awesome. Also, it has a very low price point at about $250-400 dollars compared to 700 for most other high end smartphones. Yes I would definitely consider buying this phone.

    3.) I was unaware that so many companies produced phones. I thought that only about 10 companies made cell phones.

    4.) If I could have any phone right now it would be the HTC One (m8). The all metal build and boomsound speakers are amazing.

    3.) People are selling the Micro-SD Card that you can pull out of the phone and sell it on E-Bay for alot of money and some of them are viruses and destroy the phone when you put it inside of your phone.
    4.) Galaxy S5
    5.) Galaxy S3

  36. 1.Samsung Galaxy Note 3
    b.Android 4.4
    c.Verizon, AT&T,Sprint,Best Buy, and Amazon.

    2. It has a massive great screen with a quad-core processor. It also has a refined S Pen and a long battery life as well as take great pictures. If I had the money I would get this phone, its features are just my style.

    2. Samsung
    3.Brew Sp01
    4. Verizon

    2. The Samsung Intensity II has a full QWERTY keyboard, solid messaging and e-mail tools, and handy search and navigation extras. The attractive, compact design and eco-conscious construction is a bonus. I would definetly not buy this phone because i prefer smart phones.

    3.Smartphone users tend to glance at and skim over emails more than desktop users who tend to fully read emails.
    Smartphone users around the world tend to use their smartphones at home more than anywhere else.

  39. 1: Oneplus one
    cyangonen Mod

    2:snapdragon 801 processor making the entire thing run better than an Olympian. and it has like, so many battery.
    honestly. It has about 13.7 hours of battery while playing video on full brightness. This works for me because I need a lot of battery life. I probably won't get this phone, though, because I like the Iphone too much. I very much enjoy apple's smartphones.

    3:86 percent of people use their phones while watching tv..... WHY????

    4: Iphone 6 plus. It's obnoxiously big, but..... Why not?

    1. 2) the phone has a amazing camera. The windows set up for phones has always interest me. I really think the layout is really organized. The phone screen is all so sensitive so you can use it with gloves on for the cold days. Nokia Lumia 520 also has a radio built in. I think that handy and not very conman. Windows is really trying to improve smart phones.
      3) 89% of people use there smart hones while watching T.V Most web pages load in 6 seconds or less.People send 2.7 hours on there mobile phones, more than eating and bathing. 250 million android users. 9 trillion text messages were tent in 2011.

      4) If I could have any phone I'd have the Samsung Galaxy 5 or the most advanced one. I love Samsung set up and I just recently switch to LG and I miss it. Plus as they say Samsung the next big thing.
      5) I now have a LG Volt. It is a great phone and has many great features. It is smart but simple. I really enjoy it.

  41. 1. The Xperia T3 was created by Sony, and currently runs on the Android operating system Kit Kat. The T3 is currently carried by T-Mobile.

    2. Some interesting features the T3 provides are a large, multi-touch screen, an 8gb internal memory, and around seventy-five hours of battery life in average use. Personally, I wouldn't consider getting the Xperia T3 because I prefer slide phones that don't have the capability to run complex apps on it. I only use a phone while talking, and rarely for music. A phone isn't something you should become overly attached too.

    3. It is interesting that some people consider phones more valuable than personal computers, and that in two years 80% of the population is supposed to have mobile phones if the trend continues. With the ability to carry around something as powerful a your home computer, you would still expect people to prefer larger utilities over smaller handheld phones.

    4. If I could have any phone currently available, I still would keep my current phone. It isn't perfect, but it accomplishes what I need it to do, call or text. Its survived many hits, and still runs without problem.

    5. I currently have a Samsung Brightside. Its lightweight, perfect for calling and texting, and has a good speaker. It can accomplish any task a phone would need to, and doesn't have any features that would cause you to overuse it.

  42. 1a. Kyocera Hydro Icon
    b. Kyocera
    c. Android 4.3
    d. 1GB monthly select with data boost, $35 per month, + $150 upfront; 5GB $45 per month, + $150 upfront; 10GB, $55 per month, +$150 upfront

    2. It plays video in 1080p/30fps, It comes with 1.5GB of RAM and is expandable up to 32GB, and it has a screen resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. I would never get this phone because moneys don’t seem to like me all that much, they never stick around for some fun.

    3. I was surprised to learn that in the U.S, we use our smartphones more at home than anywhere else.

    4. If I could have any phone I would get the Motorola Moto X because it comes with all of the bells and whistles you could possibly need and it’s far less expensive than the iphone.

    5. Right now I have some random verizon LG flip phone. It has everything I need and is incredibly useful.

  43. 1.) A phone model that I decided to look at was the Pantech Discover. It was, as in the name, made by Pantech. It’s operating system is Android OS, v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
    2.) There are a few features on this phone that seem pretty interesting, like the photo/video editor on it, that seems like it would be interesting and useful in case someone has need of one, like say for an assignment in this class, for example. I think I would consider getting it because it seems a lot better than my current phone, but I would only really get a new phone if the one I have now is broken beyond use or something like that.
    3.) One thing that seemed interesting was that from what I have read, Tablet usage seems to be getting higher with people of ages 55 and over
    4.) I think that if I could get any phone, it would probably just be the phone I looked at, because it seems pretty interesting, and now it is pretty much one of the only phones that I know a good deal about.
    5.) The phone i have now is the Pantech Ease.

  44. 1.
    a.Samsung Galaxy S 5
    c. Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat)
    d.T Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, AT&T, and US Cellular

    2. One cool feature is that if you hear a song on the radio you like and you don't know the name of that song you can have you phone listen to it and tell you the name of it.

    3. One that caught my attention was "Of the worlds 4 Billion phone in use 1.08 Billion are smartphones and a whopping 3.05 billion are SMS enabled."

    4. I think i would choose the iPhone 5s because its a great phone in my opinion.

    5. I have a samsung basic phone but my contract ends this month so im hoping to get the 5s or 6

  45. 1. a. Find7
    b. Oppo
    c. Android 4.4.2

    2. ((TO BE FINISHED))

    1. 2. 5.5” Quad HD screen, Shoot 50-megapixel photos with the Ultra-HD, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, Expandable Storage 128gb, 3gb of ram. "Would you ever consider getting it?" Yes, I would buy this phone in a heartbeat. It is awesome. It has 3gb of RAM and a 2.5GHz CPU. It could replace my computer.

      3. How little people have tablets! Like WOW thats a lot of people who don't have tablets.

      4. Oppo Find 7 for sure.

      5. LG spectrum 2

  46. 1a. Orange Rono
    b. Orange
    c. Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat)
    d. The device is open to any carriers

    2. I think the coolest thing about the Orange Rono is it's high quality 1080p camera. I think I would definetly get it....IF I recorded a lot of videos.

    3. Of the 5 Billion phones in the world only 1.08 Billion are smart phones.

    4. I would probably want some high-end Samsung phone or "phablet", I'd aim for something like the S5.

    5. I have a LG F4.

  47. 1. a. IPhone 6 16 GB
    b. Apple
    c. Apple iOS
    d. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon
    2. One of the features I really like is the Touch ID security. The only way to access your phone is with your own fingerprint. If I could, I would definitely get this phone because I've heard a lot of great reviews about it and my sister already has the IPhone 6.
    3. There are currently 9.1 million smartphones in the U.S.
    4. I would get either the IPhone 6 or the IPhone 6 Plus.
    5. I have an Android 4.1.2.

  48. 1.)
    a.Lenovo S90 Sisley
    c. Android kitkat
    d. This device is open to any carrier

    2.) I really like the high powered components in this phone. Like the quad core cpu or the powerful gpu as expected of Lenovo putting a lot of power into their product.

    3.) 200 million+ youtube views happen on a mobile a day.

    4.) I would get a large high powered phone that could do anything I need to do

    5.) I have a Android 4.2.1

  49. 1.)
    a.Nokia Lumia 900
    c.Windows Phone 7.5
    2.) It has dual microphones for active noise cancellation, and it also has a diagnostics tool that is able to run tests on: Accelerometer, ALS, audio loopback, camera, battery status, DTMF, gyroscope, hardware buttons, headset detection, LCD white, lights, life timer, magnetometer, power source, proximity, speaker, touch and vibration, Which I think is cool. I would not get this phone since there are many other great phones out there.
    3.) What I thought was amazing was out of the 4 billion mobile phones in use over 1/4 of them are smartphones(1.08 billion).
    4. Iphone 6, (Not a 6+, I don't like the size)
    5.I have an AT&T Pantech cellphone. (It's not the best)
