Introduction
So you are thinking of buying a new Samsung mobile, or just curious to know how a Samsung mobile really feels. You may want to know about how the User interface of that device looks? What about system settings? How the Play Store operates or what Samsung Store looks like? Although there are lot of videos available on the YouTube with everything but testing, working and seeing for yourself feels something different.Wonder no more, here is how you can use the power of internet to experience the device online for yourself.
Samsung Remote Test Lab
This is the service which allows you to control an actual device remotely using just your internet connection. According to Samsung "The Remote Test Lab is a solution that enables developers to control devices remotely.Using the Remote Test Lab service, you can test your application on a real device." Yes! Its not just android emulator it a remote device just for you. Using this users can not only access the device and know how it feels they can actually install apps on them and test. Although its meant for use of developers but it will help some curious internet users too, who want to explore so much more.
Requirements
Trust me there is nothing extra required to use this service, below are the basic requirements according to the site:
  1. A Samsung Developers account (http://developer.samsung.com)
  2. A standard web browser that supports JavaScript (Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, or Safari).
  3. The Java Web Start files included in the JRE* (Java Runtime Environment).
  4. Internet environment where ports 80 and 2600 are available.
If you have been using your PC/Mac, chances are that you already have all the listed thing present on your system. One thing needed is just a user account which can be created for free form the website listed above. Once you have the account registered just head on to http://developer.samsung.com/remoteTestLab.do , log in  and click on 'Go to Remote Test Lab' to begin your experience.
What will you see?
You'll first be taken onto a test page, which will check for your system requirements and provide you with a link to proceed further. Hit on 'Proceed' to continue...
Now you will be presented with list of devices to select from. Four tabs are present which lists the options for selecting devices. These are Hot - Which most of the developers are using to test there applications on, Bada - This contains list of devices for Samsung's own bada OS devices, Android-  This one is one you'll be most interested in, contains device like, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S3, S2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, 7.0 etc. And the last tab it User devices, which list the devices you are currently testing or connected to.

Now once you finalize which device you want to test, you can have options to configure it. For demo purposes we have selected Samasung Galaxy Note. Now options available are:
  • Operating System - Which operating system should device use - here we had options for Gingerbread (Android 2.3) and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0)
  • Device list - This is just list of available test devices, you can select any of the available options.
  • Time - How long you want to reserve the device for, options available from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Select one of the values for how much time you want to play around with the device.
Once you are done with all these settings, click on Start to start your exclusive device.

Now you will get prompts to install a Java application just click on yes and Hit Run when it asks you.

Voila! You device will now be ready to use. Have fun and explore it!

Why I purchased Nexus 7 instead of Samsung Tab2

Introduction
Google also entered the tablet market with its latest device ‘Nexus 7’; in this space Samsung has already been playing a greater role. This post will talk about different streams for thoughts that were running on my mind while I decided to buy a decent tablet for myself.
UPDATE: Do check out Samsung Tab 2 and Google Nexus 7 benchmarking results which talks in details about CPU, memory performances, and web rendering on both the tablets.

This is not a technical comparison where you see the specifications of two devices and where it stands; rather this will focus on the thought process that goes behind the scenes when you choose to buy one tablet out of two options. If are right now thinking of buying yourself a tablet than this is going to be of great help to you, it will help you know other things to think about while purchasing a tablet and how not just make your decisions purely on the specifications.
Before we proceed further into the thought process let me make it clear the two devices we will be talking about, The first one is of course Google’s own  Nexus 7 and other being Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (the 7 inch one). Since I am from India, the amount consideration will be in Indian Rupees. So let me bring forward the thought process behind my choice of Google Nexus 7, the tablet I bought.

Why is Nexus 7 Better?
First let’s talk about the Plus side for Google
  1. Google Device – Trust me this one is the first thing you should think about. Nexus 7 is made by ASUS and have Google branding to go with it. So when Google releases updates to the Andorid operating system which happens a lot, this device will keep getting the updates for a longer time and before anyone else or Samsung Tab 2 in our case.
  2. Community – Again this is a Google device, so it will have lot of community and developers attached to it. You will be able to find more tweaks and related developments related to this device than any other device form the competitor. Believe me people are working on porting jelly bean on Google Nexus mobile already after 2 years on.
  3. US $25 credit in Google Play Store – Now who does not want some free stuff, everyone does. So instead of getting paid apps from other sources you’ll be able to make purchase from the Play store itself. Although this is available to users located in the US only, but believe me there are ways to get it outside US too. I’ll be posting a guide myself soon. Add to top that $25 it also comes along a free download of the movie – ‘TRANSFORMERS Dark of the moon’.
  4. Screen Resolution – Nexus 7 has the best screen that happened to android yet. It has 1280 X 800 pixel screen which forms around 216 PPI (Pixels per inch) which is comparable to iPad’s retina display with 260 PPI. Samsung Tab 2 has a Low pixel densitiy screen, below with 170 PPI with 1024 x 600 screen resolution.
  5. Quad Core Processor – With NVIDIA Quad Core processer compared to  Samsungs Dual Core processor Nexus 7 is a winner clearly. Plus Nexus 7 also has a NVIDIA Graphics Processing Unit so all modern day games will run super smooth on it, this is which Samsung Tab 2 lacks.
  6. Available between Rs. 16,500 – 17,500 in India – whereas Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 costs around 19,000.
Now these were all the good things about Google Nexus 7, let us now talk about what according to everybody else are negative points about Google Nexus 7 when compared to Samsung Tab 2.

Why not Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)
  1. Missing Camera – Really? Do you really care about capturing photographs from your tablet. Just think about it once, these days everyone has a smartphone equipped with a better camera quality than what comes on the Tab 2 then why one should think of the camera in first place? And Nexus 7 do have a front facing camera better than the front camera on Samsung Tab 2 for video conferencing purposes. Also there are already apps available in the market for free to use front camera to record videos and click photos. But according to me this is not a point to consider if you think about it from a tablet perspective.
  2. No 3G Support – Now this also is not really a bad thing. Think about times you will actually go out to a bizarre location with your tablet? And in case even if you go out, you’ll always have your mobile phone with you! And again if its android it can easily turn into a WI-FI hotspot to satisfy your needs. 
  3. No Phone Support – If you want to call, will you pick up or buy a tablet? It’s too big to use it as a phone. You already have a smartphone to call everyone in the world. Also Samsung Tab 2 just allows 3G surfing and Call functions on their tablet, you won’t be able to send MMS and text messages with it so it can never replace your phone.
  4. Missing Micro SD slot – It’s a tablet and for that 8GB memory is pretty enough considering that its connected to cloud and you will have access to all those files every time and everywhere.
These were my thought while I purchased a Nexus 7 tablet for me. Are you a Samsung fan? What’s your take on the stuff I explained here? Hit me with comments and I’ll be happy to answer or reply to any queries you might have.
