The Samsung Galaxy Win is yet another phone by the Samsung Corporation. Samsung seems to want to flood the market with its own products. In fact, it seems that Samsung’s biggest competitor will soon be Samsung itself. This seems even more likely as despite numerous phones in the market, Samsung also releases variants of those phones. The Samsung Galaxy Win comes in two variants: Single-SIM and Dual-SIM. The Samsung Galaxy Win is also sold as Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro in certain markets.

Google has also launched its own line of smartphones based on Android, called the Google Nexus. Each device in the Nexus line is produced via collaboration between Google and a leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner.

The Nexus devices in general have an advantage over other devices in that the Android in the Nexus devices is pure. I.e. the Android does not have any manufacturer or wireless carrier modifications to it, such as a custom graphical user interface. The Android also has an unlockable bootloader to allow further development and end-user modification, all of which is usually blocked on other Android smartphones.

The Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 are two of the devices available in the Google’s Nexus line. The main difference between them is the fact that the Nexus 7 is a 7 inch tablet, while the Nexus 4 is a smartphone. Also, the Nexus 7 pre-dates Nexus 4.

The Nexus 4 is Google's fourth Nexus-branded Android smartphone. It was produced in collaboration with LG Electronics. The phone features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, front facing 1.3 megapixel camera and an 8 megapixel rear camera and a micro-SIM card tray. The phone runs on the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, which was launched with the phone. The phone also features a new camera technology, called the Photo Sphere. This allows one to take 360 deg Panorama shots.
