Here we'll take a look at how it feels once again to work with the Samsung mobile media player, here in its most ideal shape and form yet.

LG 3D Max first-impressions

LG has persisted with mobile 3D, and the LG Optimus 3D Max is the company's latest attempt to persuade us that glasses-free 3D is something we want on the move. A 4.3-inch Android smartphone with a dual-camera array, the Optimus 3D Max promises to smooth off some of the rough edges of its Optimus 3D predecessor. Read on for our first impressions.

LG Optimus True HD LTE official in Germany

LG Optimus True HD LTE official in Germany

The LG Optimus LTE P936 made a suitably leaky appearance last month which seemed to be bound for Europe, and now LG has confirmed it. The company will be bringing the handset to German carriers as the LG Optimus True HD LTE. Why “True HD”? The 720p screen on the phone uses a full RGB matrix unlike current AMOLED 720p screens which use a PenTile matrix. LG hammered this point home back at CES 2012 for the LG Spectrum, and looks like the marketing isn’t letting up even for this variant.

LG Optimus 3D Max launches in Europe

If you simply can’t get enough of 3D in the cinema or in your swanky home theatre, why not buy a smartphone that promises glasses-less 3D on the go? The LG Optimus 3D Max was first seen at MWC 2012, and LG is now ready to set it loose on the world. The phone will be launching in Europe today (although those in the UK won’t be seeing the handset), and features improved specs as well as a slimmer chassis over the original Optimus 3D.

Lucid by LG Review

We're taking a look at a smartphone being released by Verizon this week as the newest addition to their 4G LTE lineup: the inexpensive yet surprisingly powerful Lucid by LG.

Meizu MX Review

Meizu MX Review

While the Meizu electronics brand isn't that well known outside of China at the moment, they're certainly a brand to be reckoned with in the smartphone market, and if the Meizu MX is any indication, they'll be a whole lot more well known in the very near future. The device you see before you is a high-end Android device made for release in China only, but because of its 2G and 3G network bands, we're able to use it here in the USA with a micro SIM card from T-Mobile or AT&T, whichever we so choose to pop in. Because of this, the review of this device makes for a rather interesting exercise in testing Meizu on a global scale: can this MX smartphone stand up to the rest of the Android devices here in the USA?

Spectrum by LG hands-on

Verizon's next LTE device is here in the Spectrum by LG, a device with the first True HD IPS display for the carrier at 4.5-inches and 392 PPI - that's massive. This smartphone also has a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor covered with a pane of Corning Gorilla Glass, the whole monster running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in the pipe for the first half of 2012. This device is not the least massive smartphone on the market, that's for certain.
