Orange San Diego Review

Orange San Diego Review

It’s taken a long time for Intel’s smartphone plans to come to fruition. The company has demoed its processors in mobile devices at several CES events in the past, but has struggled to bring them to market. This year, however, Intel came prepared, announcing a partnership with several manufacturers and carriers that would see Intel’s Medfield platform finally making its way into consumers hands. The first phone was the Lava Xolo X900, released in India in May, while the United Kingdom has been graced with the Orange San Diego, previously known as the Santa Clara. So, how does the pairing of Intel and Android hold up? Find out after the jump.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

The Lumia 610 is an interesting entry into the Windows Phone family. Microsoft lowered the barrier to entry with an update to the OS, dubbed Tango/Refresh, allowing handsets with lesser specifications into the fray. The Lumia 610 is the first shipping handset that takes advantage of the lower specs, coming with an 800Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM instead of the old 1Ghz and 512MB standard. As a result, Nokia is hoping that the reduced cost of the handset will capture the entry-level market, and we imagine Microsoft will be keeping a close eye on the situation too. Does the 610 hit the mark? Find out after the jump.

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

If there's such a thing as heritage in the relatively fledgling world of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S III has it. Seldom does a phone - at least, one not wearing an Apple logo - arrive to so many expectations, and this time around Samsung even managed to match its Cupertino rival for pre-launch hype, rumor and intrigue. If the original Galaxy S convinced us Samsung could indeed be a top-tier player, and the Galaxy S II played an instrumental role in overshadowing the rest of the Android ecosystem, then we probably won't be satisfied until the Galaxy S III trounces every other handset on the market. The Korean firm has the ambition, certainly, but does it have the device to do it? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Sony Xperia U Review

Sony Xperia U Review

Sony pushed the Xperia S out of the door back in March, but the Xperia P and Xperia U have lagged behind a little in making it to market. Both of those devices are finally with us, and just like HTC, Sony seems to be banking on three phones hitting different price brackets to try and jump start its smartphone career. The Xperia U may be the cheapest in the NXT line, but it does have some solid specs: a dual-core 1Ghz processor, 854x480 3.5-inch screen, and five megapixel camera. How does it hold up? Find out after the jump.

While the HTC One X and One S are hogging the limelight with their mix of raw performance and excellent build quality, there’s One more phone in the series that we need to turn our attention to. The HTC One V won’t impress anybody with its spec sheet, but part of HTC’s 2012 strategy is a renewed focus on not just the mid- and high-end of the market, but also the initial point of entry, the affordable smartphone.

Does the HTC One V strike a balance between hardware, software, and affordability? Let’s find out.
