Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

This week there've been a couple reports of Verizon hitting the End of Life marker for a variety of phones working with their 4G LTE network, this including (for starters) the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S III (32GB), and original DROID RAZR. When an official End of Life notification hits Verizon, this means that any devices tagged with said notification will no longer be shipped to retail locations and the carrier will be winding down advertisements for said devices as well. While this isn't a definitive marker for Verizon's end-of-service for software updates, End of Life is often indicative of lowered priority for the devices listed from that point forward.

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.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?
