HTC One Review [2013]

HTC One Review [2013]

It's been a tough few years for HTC, unsung victim of the Apple-Samsung smartphone war, and the new HTC One has a lot to do to fix that. The company has seen its place in Android dwindle from trailblazer to also-ran, as Samsung's cutting-edge hardware and vast marketing budget forced Galaxy to the fore. Solid phones like 2012's One X and One S failed to relight HTC's fire, and so it has done the only thing it can: raise its game much, much higher with the HTC One. We're back to the days of risk-taking hardware decisions and legitimately interesting software, but the big question is whether the One can pull it off. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Z10 Review

BlackBerry Z10 Review

RIM reborn… and now it's BlackBerry, if you don't mind. Rebranded, refreshed, and desperate to impress, you can't knock BlackBerry's enthusiasm about its now-eponymous platform. Then again, it's had several months of delays in which to practice, and the BlackBerry Z10 - first out of the gate to run the OS - is so close to the two prior variants of developer device that there isn't a long list of new features to be learned. Instead, and with the arguably more important Q10 QWERTY version a couple of months off, it's a case of making an argument for BlackBerry 10 to occupy the coveted "third ecosystem" spot, and the scraps left behind from Android and iOS. Is BlackBerry 10 the OS to give Windows Phone nightmares, reboot BlackBerry itself, and snatch both consumer and enterprise crowns? Read on for our full review.

Black Diamond III Multi-Sensory Bluetooth Speaker Review

The folks at Acase have partnered again with design company yantouch to create a lovely little bluetooth-connected reactionary lighting art object with the power to blast your audio out and high volume - the Black Diamond III. There have been two other Black Diamond speakers similar to this one, of course, as the name suggests, but this is the first working independent of any one line of smartphone units. Here you'll be connecting with bluetooth or a basic line-in with your smart device's headphone jack, and the fun will begun thusly.

Windows Phone 8S by HTC Review

Windows Phone 8S by HTC Review

HTC dug deep for its Windows Phone 8 line-up, coming out with a pair of distinctively designed smartphones that promptly earned Microsoft "Signature" status. The Windows Phone 8X already impressed us, and now it's the turn of its smaller sibling, the 8S, to have its moment in the spotlight. Is the 8S more than just a pretty face, or has HTC cut too many corners to hit the midrange price tag? Read on for our full review.

Verizon HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

Verizon HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

HTC’s new Windows Phone 8X proves that the manufacturer is capable of building a solid Windows Phone 8 device. We’ve already taken a look at AT&T’s version of the 8X, as well as T-Mobile’s variant, but Verizon has the new device in its repertoire as well, and we’ve got it right here in front of us to see what this version offers. Since we already went over the basics as well as the more advanced stuff with the original full review, as well as dabbled around with T-Mobile’s version, I’ll just be briefly providing an overview of Verizon’s version for those who may be interested in grabbing the device from Big Red.

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?

Samsung Galaxy Camera Review

Samsung Galaxy Camera Review

Times are tough for point-and-shoot cameras. The rise of the smartphone and its ever-increasing megapixel count, as well as a demand for instant sharing, has seen dedicated camera sales droop. Yet, as any photography aficionado will tell you, there's more to snapping shots than mere megapixels. Enter Samsung and the Galaxy Camera, promising the best of its mobile and photography teams in a single gadget. Is there room in the marketplace for a new hybrid: the heart of a true camera with the added sprinkle of some smartphone magic? Read on for our full review.

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.

T-Mobile HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

T-Mobile HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

The HTC Windows Phone 8X is without a doubt the finest Windows Phone machine HTC has ever produced, and certainly one of the most beautiful devices they've ever created regardless of operating system. Because we've already done a full HTC Windows Phone 8X review as the device exists on AT&T, the following look a the T-Mobile version will be shorter than your average SlashGear review - especially here since the differences between the devices are so incredibly few. Just as Samsung got wise with the Galaxy S III and having the same hardware and software build, for the most part, for carriers across the earth, so too has HTC kept the fighting "one design for all" spirit here with the 8X, a strong device from all angles.

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 Review

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 Review

The premium compact camera you're about to experience is the Olympus XZ-2, coming in hard with a 12.3 megapixel 1/1.7” BSI CMOS sensor, an ultra-bright zoom lens at 28-112mm equivalent f/1.8-2.5, and a 3-inch touchscreen on the back with full tilting action. It's not the camera you're going to buy to blow up your family's eyeballs with fashionability on the outside - it's the compact high-class shooter that's going to make the difference on the inside. What we're seeing here is a premium experience at a relatively low price considering the quality of the output, that's for certain.
