AndroidPhones are quickly becoming the top choice for mobile users. This OS have already attracted many users and continue to make buzz around. In fact, Android phonesare said to be better than iPhones in terms of better stability and performance. Manufactured by the Open Handset Alliance, this cellular phone brings Internet-style innovation to the wireless phones. Android phones use Linux as an operating system. It has an amazing facility of allowing the developers to use Java language with the help of Google applications. There are already many Android phones released and more than 18 to come this year by Google. So, before you purchase an Android mobile phone, you can have a look at the various phones available in the market to learn better. With that in mind, Honeytechblog has compiled the updated l After the Android operating system made its way into the mobile phone market, most manufacturers saw gold in this new system and that’s why most of them rushed to install it on all their new devices. In many cases, this rush led to malfunctioning devices, or machines that just froze after a period of use. Further, we’ll take a look at overheating issues that Android phones have and we’ll tell you how to handle a few of the situations. Today’s phones are almost like miniature computers and because high-performance components have been fitted into their design a problem emerges that has never been an issue for mobile phones, and that’s overheating. Many things can cause an Android phone to overheat, but what’s important is determining exactly the cause and the possible effects of this heating issue. Because Android device manufacturers had some idea about these heating issues, they installed a heat sensor on most of their devices, this sensor announcing the user with a message on the screen if the device is overheated. When the symbol OVHT appear on the top of your screen, you should know that your device is quickly overheating and you should stop doing whatever you were doing. The overheating can be caused by some things like the Wi-Fi or the processor if they are over solicited in a task. Overheating of a device while making long calls is also somewhat normal to a certain point, as many of the manufacturers claim. The most serious issue emerges when the phone is really overheating and the battery fails to recharge. This means that there is a problem with the battery and it might need replacing. If you notice that your battery gets really hot while charging the phone, immediately remove it from the device. The overheating of the battery is considered a fire hazard as in many cases the battery exploded from an overcharge. There are also free Android apps that can be downloaded from the Market that will tell you all about your battery. These small applications can tell you if the battery is the cause of the overheating and they will tell you the exact temperatures you are dealing with. After you have determined the cause of the overheating, make sure to change the phone’s battery or the entire device if necessary as it will surely get permanently damaged at one point if it’s still used. Google’s relationship with China has been fraught with complications. Despite the tension, Google recently told Bloomberg that it’s “confident” it will be able to make an impact on the Chinese market. It does not appear that China feels the same way. Chinese publication TechWeb reports that Yueguo Feng, general manager of Chinese Internet giant Baidu’s wireless business unit, just announced that it will be integrating its search engine into Android phones, replacing Google’s as the phones’ default service. Baidu is, more or less, the Google of China. It is the most popular search engine in the country and is expanding into new territory with social networking elements. There is one big, glaring difference however: Baidu has the world’s faster growing market of Internet users at its fingertips, a demographic Google has been specifically excluded from. And now Baidu plans to incorporate its Web service into 80-percent of Android smartphones sold in China, cementing its hold over the world’s most profitable Internet sector. And investors are taking notice. Baidu is set to announce its quarterly earnings today and analysts expect it to nearly double its performance from this time last year. These bullish predictions aren’t baseless either: Forbes reports that since the beginning of 2011, “shares have soared more than 54- percent.” Google, meanwhile, continues to struggle in China. It’s been about a year since the Internet titan’s conflict with the Chinese government over censorship issues caused it to restrict access to Hong Kong exclusively, and the more recent controversy and ensuing back-and-forth over alleged Gmail hacks originating in China have only added to the tension. Since last year, Google’s share of the Chinese market has taken a nosedive. But it’s not all bad news for Google. As of December 2010, 50-percent of smartphones in China were running Android OS, and China has said there “should be no limit” on the mobile OS ecosystem as long as developers mind its regulations. Of course, these numbers are nothing compared to the big business Apple is doing in the country, which is now its fastest growing iPhone market. Google must know that if it wants to compete on an international level, it has to create a better position in China. BBC reports that a new search engine, Goso.cn, which may be backed by China’s Communist Party, is also rumored to have brought on “a number of former Google China executives.” The site wants to give Baidu some competition, and some analysts believe that China’s rapidly growing market of Internet users may mean there’s an opportunity for some search engine diversity. Still, it’s clear that Google faces more than its share of challenges in the country, and that China plans to do everything it can to edge it out.
