How much storage does your phone ACTUALLY give you?

Last May it was revealed with much furore that the Samsung Galaxy S4 only came with 8.6 GB of storage free out of the advertised 16 GB. As customary of Samsung, it had been stuffed with tonnes (7.4 GB to be precise) of bloatware and unnecessary TouchWiz functions. TouchWiz is so bloated, in fact, that many S4s have been brought to their knees, with RAM processors at an all time high. That’s the reason Samsung had to go with 3 GB of storage on the Note 3 – while others can manage with 2 GB, TouchWiz needs 3.

Lumia 525 Review – A Cheap and Decent Budget Phone

Overview
The Lumia 525, an upgrade over the Lumia 520, is a budget device retailing at only SGD$249 off contract, which offers great value at a really low price in comparison to other budget phones today. With 1GB of RAM, it can run most apps on the Windows Marketplace now, and it performs decently at most tasks. It has great value, and for a budget phone, has amazing value. This phone isn’t for a techie, but for a person looking to get his or her first smartphone, this would be great, except for the fact that it has a really disappointing battery life that, while disappointing to one who uses a flagship device, will be downright pathetic to one who uses a dumbphone which lasts days on a charge.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review – Noteworthy

OVERVIEW

Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review – the most powerful Samsung phone yet. It released just as September ended, and went on to become a very well grossing product, even if its image was tainted with the fake region locking fiasco. It is expensive, but priced the same as all other flagships, while packing in some very useful features and top of the line specs. Still, not everything is perfect, especially considering the plastic body while Apple, HTC and Sony have moved on to aluminium, and TouchWiz is as poor as ever. The target audience of the Note 3 then falls to those who need a large screen for entertainment purposes, as well as the multitude of S-Pen functions useful in note taking and the like.
