Have you tried our Comparison Tool?


You might wonder how we generate delicious phone specification tables on Ausdroid, or how we so quickly compare new handsets to phones on the market. On the other hand, maybe you don’t. However, if you do, you might like to try our new Comparison Tool, so that you can compare just about anything with just about anything else.

Just one of the things we do behind the scenes is maintain a reasonably well stocked database of phones, Android Wear devices and tablets. At this stage, we’ve got most modern devices in there, and if you want to compare them, you can. There’s a widget in the sidebar to compare three phones, and you can compare Wear and Tablets too.

Here’s an example of the output, with 2016’s flagships from MWC:

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Nice tool 🙂 A few extra stats that I’d like to see though – does it have a headphone port? Where is that headphone port located? What is the configuration of the speakers?

Valued Guest

Chris is a nice tool!, I mean yes it is. I’ve passed it up the chain and he will add it, it will take a few days for the data to appear. I’ll post back here when we start so you can give some feedback.
