This is a short resume about what I found more interesting.
I got a BQ Aquaris E4.5 and I’m very happy with it. I’m not an Android fan, I prefer iOS by all means. Anyway this is a review about the phone, not the virtues and defects of Android.
Most relevant phone specks:
OS: Android 4.4
Internal Memory: 8 GB
Ram: 1 GB
Rear camera: 8Mpx
Frontal camera: 5Mpx
CPU: Quad Core Cortex A7 up to 1.3 GHz MediaTek
GPU: Mali 400 up to 500 MHz
Resolution: qHD 540×960 – 240 ppi (HDPI)

The phone comes in a nice box:

Compared with an iPhone 4
These are pixel level porn macro. I wish I could get closer… To appreciate these pictures you must see them in full resolution. Click the link to see them in flickr. I used this macro.
The screen is really bright and the colours are vivid.
For 150 Euros this phone is more than I expected. It’s really fast, well finished, well designed, extremely light and robust at the same time. It also comes with an all risk insurance. I don’t know if this insurance is available also outside Spain. I spent some time looking for an Android phone with decent storage, a relatively new version of Android, a decent camera and dual SIM. I couldn’t find one bellow 200 Euros. I thought that BQ could be a crap for that price, but actually it’s much better than some competitors in the same range.
I finally took this short video. Maybe you can see here how fast it is and the quality of the screen.
Some pictures in full resolution taken with the Aquaris. No editing, just straight from the phone.
The macro is pretty good.
This one with the frontal camera.

This camera is not a hot new gear from Nikon, it was produced in July 2008 and until now my D200 worked perfectly. But when time came to make a change, the D700 was the perfect choice. This camera is just amazing! ISO, weight, ergonomics, performance, battery life, just a really good piece of hardware! I got it just one week ago, and these are my first impressions.
Photography with the iPhone relays on two important pillars: the Photographer and the Applications. Taking pictures with an iPhone could be fun or painful. To enjoy the possibilities that this device brings to us, first we need to understand what photography with an iPhone means, and then, we can download the apps that fit our needs.
There are tons of photography apps for the iPhone. I didn’t have time to check all of them. From all the apps that I tried, these are the ones that actually I cannot live without.
