Droid X Review

Motorola's first-generation DROID shook HTC's dominance of the Android segment and arguably reinvented the company after years of tired RAZR variants.

Changes are afoot, though, which may help people out there aching to get their hands on the Droid Incredible they've purchased before the end of July.

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.
