Most Powerful Dual Core Android Smartphones

2011 has been a year of dreams for Android enthusiasts.. A huge series of phones ranging from entry-level to high-end graphic enabled phones has been launched this year and a variety of phones are scheduled for launch in coming months. From LG to HTC, all have planned the launch of Dual Core powered or extremely powerful single core phones this year. In this post I will be covering 4 of the most powerful and feature rich phones currently available, so that you can decide which one suits your needs.

4′ high quality screens, high MP cameras, Full HD capabilities and dual core powered processors are some of the features common to all 4 phones.

4) LG Optimus 2X


Display: IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels, 4.0 inches
Memory: Internal 8 GB storage (upto 32GB via microSD)
Camera: Primary 8 MP and Secondary 1.3 MP, Maximum 3264×2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
Video: Yes, 1080p@24fps, 720p@30fps
CPU: Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor, ULP GeForce GPU, Tegra 2 chipset
RAM: 512 MB


A smart device from LG that claims it to be the world’s first dual core powered device, is instead a considerable device when it comes to Android! With its 8MP Full HD capabilities, dual display and Nvidia Tegra 2 graphic chipset, it is a good choice for those who are looking to buy a phone priced at $500. But LG has not shown much of its potential in this phone, IPS LCD touchscreen isn’t as awesome as Retina display . 4.0 inches screen is a comfortable screen made with comfort as the main focus. At the price of $500 it isn’t a bad deal, though you can consider other 3 phones if you have a higher budget.

MetroTwit-A sleek Twitter Client for Windows based on Metro UI

Twitter is the best platform to keep you updated with latest events and trending topics. Twitter allow us to share our feelings in 140 characters and many twitter addict like me rely more on desktop clients rather than Twitter Web. Desktop client gives you ease to manage the timeline, mentions and DM in convenient way. There are plenty of Twitter clients out there for your desktop and mostly all based on Adobe Air like TweetDeck, Seesmic etc. Today I found the light weighted efficient Twitter client for my Windows i.e. MetroTwit.

MetroTwit is based on latest Microsoft .NET 4.0 and Windows Presentation Foundation 4 frameworks. It is a first-class native application that shines on Windows. It is inspired from Microsoft Metro design and optimized for Windows 7.The interface itself is clean, elegant and functional. MetroTwit having all the features one would expect from an All in on Twitter client. Since it is not based on Adobe AIR platform, I found the functionality is very smooth.
With resizable and reorderable columns you can manage your timeline, send direct messages, reply to your followers, view current trends, categorize favorite tweets and retweets and many more.
MetroTwit need Microsoft .NET 4.0 framework components to work. When you kick-start the installation it will download the necessary .NET framework component and then install application in your pc. After installing the application, click Sign in to begin the authorization. Enter the verification code from the browser during Oath process. By default it show three columns containing your timeline, mentions and direct messages. Tweetbox is present below these columns with “Add Columns”, “Twitter List” and “Refresh” button in left side of the tweet box and “Search Twitter”, “User profiles” and “Twitter Trends” button at the right side of the tweet box.
