If you are a T-Mobile subscriber that would like to get a new smartphone running the Android OS, but you don't want to spend the $200 or more than some of the high-end smartphones sell for, Samsung has a pair of new offerings on the T-Mobile network for you to check out. The new phones are the budget friendly Samsung Gravity SMART and the Exhibit 4G. Each of the phones will be offered for under $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate and signing away two years of wireless freedom.
With all the Android smartphones to choose from, the field of competition is getting a little crowded. However, the 4G battle field has a much lower population. (There is a separate battle about what 4G actually means. See the SlashGear 4G section for more on that discussion). Now LG is bringing the newly released Revolution to the battlefield. The Revolution was released on Verizon’s LTE network. Since the Revolution is only the third LTE phone, there is even less competition on the LTE playing field. It is no secret that we love the speeds possible on LTE, but does the Revolution have what it takes to compete with the glossy hi-def display of the Droid Charge, or the performance of the HTC ThunderBolt? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
The Xperia Play is being touted as the "World's First PlayStation Certified Smartphone". Does that make it a good phone? Or even a good gaming system? We've been putting the phone through its paces. Sony Ericsson certainly has a great idea of adding a gaming pad to a mobile phone. Will it satisfy your mobile gaming needs, or leave you sad and depressed like a cold little puppy in the rain? Find out after the cut!
Verizon has officially confirmed the release date for the LG Revolution, the carrier's latest 4G LTE smartphone. Set to hit the network on May 26 priced at $249.99 with a new, two year agreement, the Verizon Revolution by LG has a 4.3-inch display, 1GHz single-core Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front webcam.
How big is too big? It's an important question when you're looking at the Samsung Infuse 4G, AT&T's latest HSPA+ smartphone and a device that's as sizable face-on as it is slender from the side. A close relative of the much-loved Galaxy S II, it also uses Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus display technology, only now stretched to a whopping 4.5-inches. More to love, or too much to handle? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
Verizon Wireless has officially announced the oft-leaked Motorola DROID X2, the company's new 4.3-inch qHD resolution Android smartphone. The Verizon DROID X2 runs Android 2.2 - with a Gingerbread updated in the works, the carrier insists - on a dual-core 1GHz processor, and has an 8-megapixel camera with continuous autofocus and LED flash.
Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S II. When your displays, chips and memory are found in the flagship devices of OEMs around the world, you have to expect consumers will demand more from the hardware that bears your brand. The Galaxy S II (aka Galaxy S 2 or GSII) has even more to live up to: the original Galaxy S spawned several carrier variants that helped it become the best-selling Android smartphone in the US last year, and positioned Samsung as one of the key names to beat in the segment. So, with dual-core - and freshly overclocked - processor at the ready and a huge, Super AMOLED Plus display providing some eye-catching glitz, the Galaxy S II wades into the crowded smartphone market. New Android king or pretender to the throne? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
Verizon had four LTE devices to talk about in its financial results earlier this morning, and as of April 28 there'll be another on the shelves. The Verizon DROID Charge by Samsung is mighty similar to the Galaxy S II, with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android OS and an 8-megapixel rear camera, but it throws in 4G LTE too.
Before we go any further, I'd like to let you know that we've got not [one], but [two] hands-on experiences with this device. Check there for all the specs and tiny details your heart could desire. Below you'll find a broad approach at a review since this phone is becoming somewhat of a rarity here in the USA - one that's not a feature phone, yet not Android or iOS - such a diamond in a bucket full of diamonds, rubies, pearls, and other precious rocks!
