HTC One SV Review

HTC One SV Review

Flagship smartphones may get us talking, but it's mass market devices like the HTC One SV that get huge sales, and that's just what UK 4G trailblazer EE needs to help push LTE to the mainstream. HTC's mid-range Android ticks some high-end boxes, with its 4G support and slick design, but there are compromises in the mixture too, in order to hit a more affordable price point. Is the One SV the LTE Android for the everyman? Read on for our full review.

HTC One VX Review

HTC One VX Review

HTC recently made their case for a top-tier handset back in November, with the DROID DNA boasting the highest-resolution display of any smartphone. However, in order to balance out its offerings, HTC has a new budget-friendly handset in town. The One VX is the company’s latest mid-range smartphone added on to their One series of devices, and priced at only $49 on AT&T’s network (after signing a two-year contract, of course), we simply had to get our grubby little hands on this device to see what it’s capable of. Does it provide value to entry-level minded customers without sacrificing a lot in terms of features and performance? Let’s find out.

Motorola Electrify M Review (US Cellular)

Motorola Electrify M Review (US Cellular)

Motorola is really pushing their DROID RAZR series pretty hard, and while they’re only exclusive to Verizon customers, the company has been slowly migrating their RAZR lineup to other carriers by making some minor changes to the design and branding. US Cellular already has a few Motorola devices in its arsenal, one of which is the new Electrify M, the equivalent to Verizon’s DROID RAZR M, which we took a look at a few months ago. It’s available now exclusively on US Cellular at a price of $99 ($149 if you don’t have the carrier’s 4G LTE in your area). The phone is classified as a mid-range handset, but it proves that big things can come in small packages. However, let’s find out if US Cellular’s latest Motorola device is worth your time -- and more importantly -- your money.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with speed tests and benchmarks

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with speed tests and benchmarks

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is ready for action on Verizon's 4G LTE network now, and what better way to usher in a new version of the device that's also out on several other networks than to do some speed tests and processor benchmarks? The big differences between the Samsung Galaxy Note II on Verizon and the competition's carrier networks is the speed at which it accesses data, the cost of the data therein, and of course the Verizon-specific apps (mostly for tracking your data and your data costs.) Other than that it's the same cool Galaxy Note II experience you've gotten used to on T-Mobile, AT&T, and internationally.

HTC One X+ Review

HTC One X+ Review

HTC’s One X, which launched earlier in the year, turned out to be quite a capable Android handset, and it was leaps and bounds above the company’s 2011 lineup. However, HTC decided to launch an updated version just a few months after the release of its predecessor. It’s available now exclusively on AT&T’s network, and it’s priced at $199 after a two-year contract. While the One X+ may not look any different than the One X, it does come with some decent and welcomed updates on the inside. It comes out of the box with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, 64GB of storage, and a slightly larger 2100mAh battery. These changes certainly are key updates that are crucial if HTC wants to keep up with other flagships going into the holiday season, but are the upgrades worth the higher price? And more importantly, can it compete with the other top-tier handsets on the market?

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

We've been seeing a lot of really good high-end handsets lately (like the Galaxy Note II and the HTC DROID DNA), but all the while, LG has been putting out some solid mid-range phones. Not too long ago, we reviewed the LG Optimus L9, a mid-range device at T-Mobile that wasn't extraordinary in any way but still a quality handset all around, and today it's the Verizon Spectrum 2 that's taking center stage. The question is whether or not this smartphone is yet another good mid-range entry from LG, or if it falls short when held up against the dozens of other mid-range handsets ready to be taken home.

DROID DNA Review

DROID DNA Review

HTC has gone all out with the DROID DNA, and it pays dividends: the new Verizon exclusive breaks records with its 1080p display, putting HTC back into the limelight with a legitimate flagship. A Full HD screen, 4G LTE, and a quadcore S4 Pro chipset tick the spec boxes more comprehensively than we've ever seen before, though big displays and fast processors do make us worry when the battery is non-removable. Has HTC redeemed itself with the best Android phone on the market, or are the DROID DNA's ambitions simply ahead of their time? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

Most of us know that when it comes to smartphones, it’s a constant struggle to find the right balance between power, looks, and affordability, with affordability normally losing out in the end. The problem most of the time is that the affordable phones don’t always look the best and typically don’t have the best hardware under the hood. If you want a phone that looks sleek and performs great, you’re going to have to shell out the big bucks, right? LG is attempting to challenge that idea with the Optimus L9, a new handset at T-Mobile that comes with the very manageable price tag of $79.99. The question is: can this phone deliver the goods at a budget price, or do the savings mean that the phone ultimately disappoints in other areas?

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.
