HTC Hero review

HTC Hero review

There's no underestimating the appeal of the HTC Hero; since we shot our unboxing video and preliminary hands-on at the end of last week it's been watched more than 300,000 times.  The third Android device to reach the market, the Hero promises not only an updated camera and design, but HTC's latest work in user-interface, HTC Sense.  Can the Hero live up to the hype?  Check out our full review to find out.

At a Mobile World Congress where headline-devices have been relatively sparse, HTC have done themselves proud with not only their second Android device, the HTC Magic, but two new Windows Mobile handsets that already look to be best of breed.  SlashGear sat down with HTC's Dave Catt and Eric Lin to discuss both the Touch Diamond2 and the Touch Pro2; in the first of two articles, we have hands-on feedback and a huge image gallery of the HTC Touch Diamond2, plus a video.

Update: Video now added - in HD!

HTC S740 WM6.1 Smartphone Review

After the runaway success of the Touch HD, HTC offered us another smartphone to try out.  If the HD was all about superlative media, the HTC S740 takes us back to smartphone basics: no touchscreen, Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, and a hardware QWERTY keyboard.  A step backwards or one in the right direction?  SlashGear set to finding out.

Samsung Wave S8500 Review

Samsung Wave S8500 Review

From its confusing launch back in December 2009, to its feature-packed handset debut at Mobile World Congress and then all the way to the SlashGear test bench today, Samsung's bada OS has had a rocky journey. Showing up for the first time on the Samsung Wave S8500, the new platform promises the flexibility of a smartphone OS with the easy usability of a feature-phone. That makes this a double review, perhaps: new platform, new phone. Does bada really have a future in the competitive cellphone market?

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Motorola's 2nd gen Moto E comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch display, and is perfectly legit for the price it's being offered at. Is it the finest piece of hardware on the market today? Of course not. Is it meant to be? No way. Does the 2015 Moto E provide one of the most compelling value propositions for a smartphone in the world today? Absolutely it does. This is Motorola's continuation of their most successful smartphone-selling setup to date - inexpensive, yet not cheap - easily one of the best new smartphones for the price it's being offered at globally this year.

ResMed S+ Sleep Monitor Review – Nightstand Ninja

ResMed S+ Sleep Monitor Review – Nightstand Ninja

I'm obsessed with sleep. Of all the metrics that make up the quantified self, it's probably the one which most intrigues me, not to mention most confuses me. Until now, though, it's also been one of the toughest to accurately measure: wearable monitors wrapped around your wrist can themselves disturb your patterns. So, while ResMed's S+ observing you from your nightstand and doing entirely contactless sleep tracking might seem creepy or far-fetched at first, the potential usefulness could well exceed any weirdness about being watched. I donned my most fetching nightcap to test it out.

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

Google's Nexus 9 faces more than a few challenges. Not only does it have the job of following Google's well-esteemed Nexus 7, which for two generations gave Android tablet fans an affordable and bag-friendly option, but it also serves as flag bearer for Android 5.0 Lollipop on a tablet form-factor. Throw in the fact that it also marks HTC's long-awaited re-entry into the slate segment, and that it's the first true 64-bit Android tablet courtesy of NVIDIA's Tegra K1, and that's a whole lot of pressure resting on one 8.9-inch iPad rival. So, how does it hold up?

Watch Donald Glover as Spider-Man in black

Donald Glover will be voicing the alternate-reality Spider-Man Miles Morales in an upcoming episode of the Disney-run television series coming up this Sunday. For those of you (what we must imagine the very few of you) that know Miles Morales from the comic book series, this should come as an awesome surprise. The original character was, after all, based in part after Donald Glover in the first place.

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 is no point update. In fact, if it wasn’t so keen on keeping in naming step with Windows on the desktop, Microsoft could probably have called its new smartphone OS version something more impressive: what started out as an aim to bring the virtual assistant Cortana and the useful Action Center to the platform blossomed in the process to include a whole flurry of tweaks and additions. Question is, has Windows Phone kept its crisp, clean charms while still gaining abilities? We’ve been in deep with the Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview; read on for our impressions.
