Galaxy Nexus benchmarks show device to be near Galaxy S II

This week and throughout the next we'll be continuing to explore the many facets of the Galaxy Nexus both inside and out, this newest post showing off the power of the device running this vanilla version of Ice Cream Sandwich with some benchmark tests. You'll see CF-Bench, Linpack, Quadrant Advanced, and SunSpider (web browser test). Each of the tests run in their own app from the market while SunSpider runs in the native WebKit web browser that comes with the device. Will this newest Samsung device outdo the Galaxy S II, or will it prove to be less of a powerhouse than Samsung's hottest selling space-themed handset?

HTC Vivid Review

HTC Vivid Review

This month AT&T have revealed their first two 4G LTE devices, the Samsung Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid, the latter device being the one we're having a look at here today. This device is the next step in the HTC smartphone design evolution, and as you'll see in the video portion of the review below, it's almost as if they asked someone on the 3D mockup crew to cut off all the edges and make something sharp! We've already got AT&T 4G LTE speed tests from one of the few areas AT&T has its LTE network deployed (in Texas,) now it's time to see if the phone stands up to the pressure of the rest of the HTC family (and the rest of the AT&T family as well.)

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally several months ago. Instead they're releasing it relatively silently in a way that wont defeat the iPod as many have said it would be aiming to do, but will fill the void where Samsung simply hasn't had a wi-fi only handheld media player before. Will it sell for what it is, or will it fall at the hands of its own much more impressive smartphone lineup?

HTC EVO Design 4G Review [Video]

Here we have the *near* smallest smartphone to carry the legendary EVO namesake, and with a 4-inch S-LCD display with qHD resolution and price tag of under $100 right out of the gate, we've got to wonder if this is the perfect package for petite palms. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is powered by a 1.2Ghz single-core processor from Qualcomm, all inside a smartphone that's a scant 4.80 x 2.40 x 0.50 inches in size. It's tall, it's substantial, and it's made to be your everyday hand-sized EVO at an inexpensive price.
