Unlike the stand-alone Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, the Gear VR utilizes Samsung smartphones for its screen

The headset includes a small window for the rear-facing camera, allowing users to stream the real world back to them making it less necessary to remove the headset.

Perhaps most interestingly, while Samsung is designing the hardware itself, they’re working with Oculus VR to develop the software. That’s an interesting partnership since Samsung and Oculus look a lot more like competitors than collaborators following this news.

The Galaxy S4 is an impressive beast, with specs that put iPhone 5 to shame and are likely to force Apple away from its typical incremental upgrade strategy and towards the unveiling of a brand new, completely redesigned iPhone in the summer.

The S4 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor and boasts a 441ppi 1080p full-HD five-inch screen embedded in a polycarbonate chassis, with metallic banding around the edge.

Amazingly the unit houses an eight-core 1.6GHz CPU and 2GB of RAM (twice that found in the iPhone 5). It will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB flavours and support 4G LTE network connectivity. A 13MP camera is mounted on the rear and a 2MP on the front.

It will be shipped with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 overlaid with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. Key features include eye-tracking that pauses action when you look away and enables tilt scrolling when you’re looking directly at the handset. Air Gestures allow some operations to be performed without actually touching the screen.

Iphone 5S

Rumour has it that Apple is set to release the iPhone 5S in August and the next-generation iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 in April, according to iMore. The new report collaborates with others in the past, saying the iPhone 5S will have the same design as the current iPhone 5, but will feature an improved processor and camera.Similar upgrades happened with both the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S, focusing more on the software than the overall hardware features.The new report seems to make sense, though it’s not clear why Apple would choose August over October – November.

Xperia Play

Had the Xperia for a week now and i am converted to Android lol, i never thought i would find a better phone than my beloved iphone 4, although there is still pros and cons which i will talk about..

The camera on the Xperia is a 5.1 mp which takes good photos but the shutter speed is crap, there is a slight delay, i will upload photos taken with the iphone 4 and the xperia so you can see the difference..

Video recording is not in high hd quality so this was a disapointment and a bit jerky 🙁

What i do love is the widgets and live wallpapers, having the latest news and sport updating on your main screen is a nice feature and it really does look pretty and not forgetting as a book reader its very smooth and easy on the eye.

Conclusion: i will not be keeping this phone but i will be getting the other model the Sony Ericsson Arc as this looks the dogs and with a bravia screen and an 8MP camera and it looks stylish and cool.
