Nexus 10 Review

Nexus 10 Review

Google's Nexus 7 demonstrated that the search giant should be taken seriously in affordable tablets; now, the Nexus 10 has arrived to prove Android has big-screen star quality. Offering a display that out-Retinas Apple's iPad and no shortage of top-tier specifications, the Samsung-made Nexus 10 also manages to do all that while undercutting the iPad 4 by $100. Android tablets have always had more of a problem than ticking the spec sheet, though, so does the combination of Jelly Bean 4.2 and the Nexus 10 mark a real turning point? Read on for our full review.

Nexus 4 Review

Nexus 4 Review

Google is up to its fourth Nexus smartphone, and the LG Nexus 4 faces a very different mobile world from the heady days of the Nexus One. Back then, Google's Nexus led the field in specifications, a deliberate kick to manufacturers to be more imaginative with their Android devices. The Nexus 4, however, faces ambitious and best-selling Android phones (not to mention the iPhone 5, and the launch of Windows Phone 8) that are already capable and compelling. Does the new Nexus have a place in the mobile market? Read on for our full review.

HTC One X+ benchmarked vs Jelly Bean Galaxy S III: Fight!

HTC One X+ benchmarked vs Jelly Bean Galaxy S III: Fight!

The new HTC One X+ has landed on the SlashGear test bench, and with HTC so especially proud of the performance tune-up its given its Android flagship, we were keen to see how it fared. Day-to-day speed we'll have to test awhile ahead of our full review, but some early benchmarks should help identify where the Tegra 3 smartphone has been particularly polished. Plus, with the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung's unlocked Galaxy S III dropping in the UK just earlier today, it seemed rude not to run some comparative scores.

Motorola Electrify 2 Review (US Cellular)

Motorola Electrify 2 Review (US Cellular)

Motorola's first Electrify was a handset that we couldn't help but love. Now Motorola is back with the Electrify 2 on US Cellular, and though its a great looking phone that has some respectable specifications, there are just a few things that come off feeling a little lackluster. The question is: are those underwhelming features enough to make potential owners look elsewhere, or is the Electrify 2 a phone that should have your attention despite a few missteps? Keep on reading to find out.

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL unboxing and hands-on

This week we're getting our hands on the Huawei Ascend D quad XL, a quad-core smartphone made to bring the brand up to speed with the rest of the hardcore top-tier smart device universe in more ways than one. This device will be spreading across the market in China rather soon with its 4.5-inch IPS+ LCD touchscreen with a massive 720 x 1280 pixel resolution - that's 326ppi, for those of you keeping track. In this initial look we'll do a basic flipping back and forth on the displays and a show of the hardware as it stands here right before the big drop. UPDATE: we now have our Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL full review up and prepared for your perusal!

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review

Samsung's new Galaxy Note II arrives with some heritage to explain it, though a 5.5-inch smartphone can still take some explaining. After its first-gen predecessor blustered its way into a new segment - known by some and loathed by others as "phablets" - the new model tweaks the formulae some, boosting performance, smoothing the design, and polishing the digital pen elements that help set it apart from the smartphone crowd. So, if the original Galaxy Note eventually answered the question "will it sell?" can the Samsung Galaxy Note II convince us that it's a worthwhile upgrade? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Samsung Galaxy Stellar Review

Samsung Galaxy Stellar Review

Samsung may be best known for its effort in the high-end market, but it didn’t get the title of largest smartphone manufacturer just by pumping out the biggest and best all the time. In addition to top-of-the-line, Samsung also hits the budget scene hard, with its latest budget-priced offering being the Galaxy Stellar. Now available at Verizon, the Galaxy Stellar brings Android to the masses on the cheap, but is it the worth your time, and more importantly, is it worth signing a two-year contract for?

Verizon Intuition by LG Review

Verizon Intuition by LG Review

The folks at Verizon and LG have teamed up to bring you a device exclusive to the both of them here in the USA - the LG Intuition - made to take on the phablet segment of the market with a fury all its own. But what can LG offer the 5-inch display-toting smart device universe that the Samsung Galaxy Note (and now the Note II) haven't already? Have a peek here at the one and only competing device to take on the larger than a smartphone but smaller than a tablet market currently on Verizon - and see if LG's convinced us that a 4:3 aspect ratio display is all its cracked up to be!

LG Intuition Hands-on

LG Intuition Hands-on

It's time to take another look at the LG version of the in-between segment of smart mobile devices sometimes known as the "phablet" here in the Verizon-carried LG Intuition. We've got our hands on one of these lovely devices today after a short intro by LG in New York City where they've been so kind as to host us and a collection of other publications with the idea being that you're assured the full LG story. The full LG story here is a play-by-play of the abilities and intents of this device as LG wants you to be aware - we'll let you know this as well as the rest in a full review - for now, let's have a hands-on look at the device here in its final form.

DROID RAZR M Review

DROID RAZR M Review

The DROID RAZR M was revealed at the event where Googler and relatively new CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside spoke about the "new plan" for the company - a plan that's starting right here. We got a brief DROID RAZR M hands-on experience at the event and found that it was a surprisingly powerful-feeling device for its status under the DROID RAZR HD devices sitting nearby. With its near-edge-to-edge 4.3-inch display, it's tried-and-true fabulously powerful dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood, and a collection of protective elements throughout this device's chassis that make it, again, an ideal phone for today's mobile landscape - just as the original DROID RAZR should have been (and still is, for many happy users, to be fair).
