“Women’s smartphone on Android» – is as rare a thing in fact, as the machine DeLorean DMC-12 from the movie “Back to the Future” from next door. That is such machine somewhere is even available, but see the “Delorean” on the road is almost impossible, even if you live in America. The company recently introduced its HTC-oriented smartphone beautiful half of humanity, and now look at using its Android-smartphone women demonstrated by Fujitsu.
Strictly speaking, the name HTC Rhyme ”feminine” may be a stretch. This was evidenced by its more fun but stylish colors and almost useless lace with a luminous cube than some serious “purely feminine” soft stuffing or even the design of the apparatus in general. Which, incidentally, is not very different from all other smartphone company HTC, with all due respect to her.
In general, Fujitsu and Japan in particular, the situation is quite different. Companies producing countries of the Rising Sun Women feel very weighty audience, and therefore give phones to create a mandatory, one might even say, fine. But now women’s smartphone on Android – it’s quite a bold move even for an advanced country like Japan.
All work (primarily), probably in the fact that most of the girls in principle quite indifferent to the technically advanced, innovative, and the more gadgets. In order not to incur charges of chauvinism, let me emphasize that I mean it most. Female geeks, of course, exist but they are fairly small.
And because of this factor, the first question that may arise is that the same manufacturer may offer Android smartphone to the lady, to somehow satisfy their needs.
HTC Rhyme with this problem is only partly mastered, though, “Raimo” of the Japanese works a lot in common. For example, in the configuration.
Filling the smartphone modern and powerful enough. Sorry, we can not say “not every” man “can boast of such an apparatus stuffing” – but even without such a conclusion it can be concluded that the device still very decent.
Judge for yourself. First, the processor: it is well-known single-core “rock» Qualcomm MSM8255, clocked at 1.4 GHz. At the same processor work above Rhyme HTC , LG Optimus SOL and most of the smartphones Sony Ericsson.
Memory in the gadget, though not enough – a total of 512 MB. And also just the internal one gigabyte. RAM would not hurt to at least 768, especially considering the fairly powerful processor on the other hand, with exactly the same balance of CPU and RAM do an excellent job with the work of all of these smartphones. Of course, in such a small amount of internal memory should be a mandatory card support micro-SD – and it is, supports cards up to 32GB.
The screen in F-03D is the usual: it is 3.7 inches diagonal, 480×800 pixel resolution, it is capacitive and supports multitouch. There are no “super technology” increase the brightness is not provided, as the screen and not AMOLED, and the easiest TFT. In general, it is slightly disappointing, but it is good that this new type of gadgets already have a screen similar to that of HTC 7 Mozart .
Cameras at the “lady-background” two, but far from the worst, but very modern. The rear offers a CMOS-sensor and a resolution of 8 MP, having among other things, face recognition function and the ability to record HD-video in 720p. The front camera is for video calls, and the source will be able to see a nice possessor Arrows Kiss F-03D with a 1.3 megapixel (if it will allow the network of course). By the way, note the unusual design of the rear chamber – despite the small size of the lens, edging him to do well around a very large irregular oval, which in itself is more like a lens “adult” soap dish.
So what to do without a standard set of modern wireless communication protocols: Of course, there is a Wi-Fi (standard 802.11 b / g / n), Bluetooth (outdated but still popular version 2.1 + EDR) and a complete set of standards for 3G, including HSDPA – and this despite the fact that the phone is still designed primarily to Japan.
There is, incidentally, is a common thing in Rhyme and Arrows Kiss – docking station, which is made ??by the same principle as that of the HTC Rhyme . That is simply placed on a smartphone, this dock is limited to a two-three contacts and begins charging. True, perhaps, the difference between here and there, as Rhyme charged from the dock well for a long time, much faster to do it the traditional way. Therefore, the Fujitsu product may be the same disadvantage, and more dock needed for “entourage” to be a desktop digital clock, which became Rhyme merge with its docking station.
Dimensions of the smartphone – 121h59h10.9 mm. Weight – 120 grams. We can not say that it is “the world’s thinnest” phone (especially if the fate of the remark that “in the thickest part of its thickness is 11.4 mm), but its dimensions are knocked out of the standard just a little – just a millimeter. Weight is quite typical for Android-smartphone with the screen, the main thing that it was not excessive for the ladies.
Android: women’s version
Sensitive factor that comes into force in the development of women’s Android smartphone is the broader possibilities for customization of the OS – which is not even able to overpower any man to the end. If the iPhone’s pretty simple (plug and play), you need to customize Android, and few people can call this activity a hobby. Hence the logical conclusion: we must create a shell, and so, with which it would be easy and convenient to operate, and with which the user does not have to think about memory allocation for applications and switch the unit to a specific mode at all. Especially in this case so far succeeded HTC and Acer – more reminiscent of the last shell interfaces regular telephones in their simplicity, and the first is before the last succeeded in having created, you can tell, the second operating system. HTC Sense in general can be compared with Windows 95, which was built on top of DOS, to put it technically and figuratively.
That’s the task before Fujitsu to create a shell that would be most understandable and as simple as possible. Of course, applications to exercise and control of excess weight is important, but you must also create conditions for them to start and run. The screenshots you can see this rather peculiar shell, and she obviously did not like the fact that usually can be seen in smartphones.
In this regard, it would be interesting to see the Japanese approach to neutralize the main Achilles’ heel »Android – is memory. In HTC Sense solved this problem most probably a convenient way possible – quick access to task manager that allows you to quickly, “one click” unload unnecessary applications. What came up for it in Fujitsu – a mystery. Although, that here, in general, you can still come up? In Android 4.0 this problem not solved, so hope remains only a fantasy producer.
Well, it would be surprising if a kit does not include a number of ‘pure female’ applications.
For example, Beauty Body Clinic is watching your posture. Sukkiri Alarm – alarm clock that wakes you up, “then, when he thinks you’re ready” (whatever that means). Karada Life – «smart» calorie counter, which tells you when you need the next time there is a salad, a hamburger and when you can pamper yourself. Tegaki Deco – an application that allows you to create their own icons from ordinary ASCII-characters, not including the three thousand (!) Already preinstalled. Plus, this is a set of applications Life Assist, «help in everyday life (again – whatever that means).
In addition to such universal applications in the Arrows Kiss is still a purely local and Japanese (such as a mobile wallet of the local payment system), which make sense to write a little.
These strange Japanese
In fact, the F-03D have a lot of unusual things that you hardly found in other smartphones.
For example, multi-colored lights of the three front buttons, which sparkle like a Christmas tree, lights and psychedelic lens, which looks even more strange. Moreover, these buttons are not made just for this crystal, and they light up the 23 different colors. In order to not get bored there.
Or stylus. Stylus on the one hand, it is an archaic thing, since it has been used (and used) to control gadgets with resistive screens.On the other hand – now, some manufacturers have given it new life, using it as a tool for drawing. For example, the stylus comes with the tablet HTC Flyer and the “bubble” Samsung Note , in addition, it will be available as an option for a tablet Motorola XOOM 2 .
In the case of Fujitsu Arrows Kiss F-03D designation bundled stylus – also for drawing, but above all – characters. Since the unit was originally designed for the Japanese market, and the “score” in memory of a few thousand Japanese and Chinese characters, you see, is quite difficult. However, no one bothers to use the stylus pen as actually drawing anything else. He looks too feminine to match the machine – more like a small tube of lipstick than a serious machine.
You can also note an infrared transmitter, which supplied this smartphone. But unlike, say, the devices from Samsung, the Smartphone Fujitsu IR-sensor is used in the old style – for data transfer. This is probably done for the sake of compatibility with older devices. On the other hand, no one bothers to find in the Android Market applications, which offer a more interesting use of an infrared link, and use them.
The last interesting feature concerns the cabinet – it is waterproof. It would be surprising if the device had some harsh certificates (as a tablet Panasonic BizPad JT-H580VT) – but since we are dealing with a “strange Japanese”, the standards he still possesses. Stated that the gadget compliant IPX 5 / 8, so water resistant it has enough conventional (if not in place an “X” was a compliant figure). Spray it can endure, as well as a brief “oh, it slipped from his hands and plopped in the bathtub” – but to do with diving Arrows Kiss still not worth it.
If you can not, but really want …
Ironically, despite the fact that Fujitsu F-03D can be quite solid in the domestic online stores. The average price of this gadget is 27 thousand rubles, which is quite expensive – but you always have the opportunity to order the device in the Japanese online stores and get it cheaper.
In fact, this smartphone will be a great gift for a girl who wants to be a girl, not an admin, but for some reason does not love Apple products and want to keep abreast of technological innovations. Unfortunately, the modern high-tech gadgets like the market, “gender” devices simply cheated – they are not as majeure manufacturers do not consider women as a potential target audience.
Perhaps this is another factor was the popularity of the iPhone, beautiful women – because there is no alternative, and removable panels, including the very “feminine” colors, the iPhone can find a huge amount.
