From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Game Changers – HTC Kaiser
The HTC Kaiser. Before I could get it, I remember I wanted it. I used to keep looking at the full specifications’ page at gsmarena and staring at the specs of it in utter disbelief. It was aesthetically pleasing, it had an awesome camera, and it had a slide out keyboard. And if that wasn’t enough the screen tilted upwards. This feature was a major selling point of the phone.
The first rumours of the handset arrived late 2006. Whispers of GPS were swirling making people want more info. Gradually, as news arrived that it was realized that this was a flagship device. HTC was giving a lot of love to the advertising and releases of shots.
The specs by today’s standard weren’t amazing but back then, everyone was amazed. The device was sporting a 400 MHz ARM 11 processor, 256 ROM, 128 RAM, Micro SDHC support, a 320×240 QVGA resistive touchscreen, GPS, and a 3.15 MP Camera. Everyone lusted after this device and it was quite sturdy as well.
The only major drawback was a driver issue, which made videos and displays very choppy. Despite this, I loved it and so did many others as it was usable.
I am quite fond of this device because it was the first one I had ever flashed. I had a Universal before but wasn’t aware of its full potential, but I knew that this one could do more. I remember doing so much to this device, changing the radio, adding things the carrier had left out, and flashing a new rom every other day.
I only had this phone for about a year before I was allowed to upgrade. I sold my kaiser to someone who was astounded by its capabilities and moved on. But still to this date, I have never forgotten the chunky beast.
