Meizu MX3 Review

Meizu MX3 Review

With the release of the Meizu MX3, the company once again aims high with their ability to create a high-end device that, at first, looks like it'd be able to compete with the finer solutions by the top manufacturers in the USA. What we've got here instead - in this current international edition of the device - is a machine that'll be able to compete with brands in China and surrounding markets with a look that's smooth, abilities that are quite nice, and Android 4.2-based Flyme OS 3.0 - read: rather unique.

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1520 grabbed the bulk of the headlines at the company's Abu Dhabi event last October, but it wasn't the only phablet the company brought along. In addition to the 6-inch flagship there was another, more affordable phone, the Nokia Lumia 1320, trading some of the high-end specs in favor of mass-market appeal. Question is, with a lower resolution display and the sacrifice of PureView, has Nokia trimmed too much to make the Lumia 1320 a hit? Read on for the full review.

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

The Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition is undoubtedly the most unique form factor in Google's collection of Nexus and Nexus-like devices today. What we've gotten out of it so far is just that - if you're looking for a replacement for a device you've got in your pocket already, something that's just an upgrade from a large smartphone you've had in the past, this isn't it. Instead you've got a device that's massively solid and feels like a whole new generation in in-between greatness.

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Mini Review

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Mini Review

The world of Samsung smartphones runs the gamut from one size to another. Want a phone that doubles as a small tablet? There's a Galaxy for that. Not everyone finds phablet-sized smartphones of adequate size for a tablet, however, and so they opt for a larger dedicated tablet and, conversely, a smaller smartphone to complement it. Others simply want a small easy-to-hold-and-pocket offering. Regardless of your reasons for leaning towards the diminutive end of the spectrum, Samsung aims to have your back, rolling out the svelte GALAXY S 4 Mini -- a miniature version of its popular handset by the same name. How does the smartphone hold up to its larger brethren? Read our full SlashGear review to find out.

Moto G Review

Moto G Review

The Moto G is a smartphone the whole tech community has wishing for and waiting on for ages. It's a low-cost smartphone with hardware and software to back up its ability to be a contender in many markets - but more than that, it's also got the backing it needs to succeed. With the power of brand recognition in Motorola and Android and the push for success on a global scale from the manufacturer's parent company Google.

LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

You're to blame for the vast Nokia Lumia 1520. "Make a phablet" we kept asking Nokia, "give us a big Windows Phone to compete with the Galaxy Note." That Nokia - and Microsoft - went off to the drawing board and returned with a hand-dominating 6-inch monster is a juicy sort of irony, then: this is a Lumia that not only comes in larger than just about every other smartphone on the market, it could be considered a small tablet in its own right. Problem is, there's a difference between a big phone and a great one, so has Nokia done more than enlarge Lumia? Read on for our full review.

Nexus 5 Review

Nexus 5 Review

Let's cut to the chase: at $350 without the ties of a two-year contract, the Google Nexus 5 is an excellent smartphone and a bargain at that. Flushed with the positive response the sub-$300 Nexus 4 received last year, Google and manufacturer LG have again struck a balance between powerful portable computing, and cost. This time around, the LG Nexus 5 creeps up in cost a little, but at the same time buffs away most of the complaints we had about its predecessor, taking on rival flagships from other Android OEMs several hundred dollars more expensive in the process. Does that make it the best Android phone on the market? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HTC One max Review

HTC One max Review

HTC should've had a best-seller with the HTC One. The metal-bodied phone was the go-to recommendation for Android fans in the know, and that it didn't get the attention of Samsung's Galaxy range is arguably more about marketing than anything else. HTC followed Samsung's example in distilling the brand for a smaller version, in the shape of the HTC One mini, and has now scaled things up with the HTC One max. A 5.9-inch display, metal body, and UltraPixel camera technology are arguably ingredients for the perfect phablet, but has HTC baked the One max badly? Read on for our full review.
