Compare Devices Easily with SpecCheck
We’ve probably all been in a situation where we need to check a specific detail about a device or compare two handhelds side-by-side, whether it’s for the purpose of weighing up our next device or simply for getting facts straight before diving into a good old fashioned bout of verbal Internet fisticuffs. The tried and true method of device comparison for most of us is probably a trip to a site such as GSM Arena. And if the device has a forum here on XDA, the latest 2013 layout option displays a rundown of basic device specs at the top of its home forum as well.
Whatever your chosen method, the habitual spec checkers among you might want to check out an application called SpecCheck by XDA Recognised Contributor QuantumFoam. This app lets you compare devices side-by-side quickly and easily. The app is fully Holo-themed and makes use of an ever growing and automatically updated database of over 150 Android, WP, BlackBerry and iOS devices. Device information can be viewed offline, and there are even links to buying and selling device options such as Swappa.
Be sure to check this one out if you often find yourself comparing devices. Head on over to the application thread for more information.

Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
