					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,, 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.
