Description

Samsung Galaxy Axiom is a mid-range device quite similar to the Galaxy S III mini. There are, however, a few notable differences between the two. To start, there is no word of an AMOLED panel being present on its front. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy Axiom is equipped with a 4-inch TFT screen offering 480 by 800 pixels of resolution. The processor inside it is a dual-core chip running at 1.2GHz. You also get a pair of cameras – a 5-megapixel one with LED flash on the back and a 1.3MP cam for video chats up front. Further down the specs sheet we see 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded by popping in a microSD card and a 2,100mAh battery good for 7.5 hours of talk time. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-loaded with goodies like S Beam and S Voice. Last but not least the Galaxy Axiom runs on the U.S. Cellular 4G LTE network for speedy internet access.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
