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.

Nokia Lumia 810 Review

Nokia Lumia 810 Review

With the Nokia Lumia 810 comes T-Mobile's chance to jump aboard the Windows Phone 8 / Nokia train to victory with a slightly powered-down version of the hero Lumia line introduced earlier this year. We've got our review of the Nokia Lumia 920, a beast of a machine with its own set of top-tier features, now we see the lower end of the spectrum with the 810 and its slightly less daring smartphone body. As it turns out, much of the experience here is the same, with not a whole lot of apparent difference to be seen between this and any other high-powered Windows Phone 8 smartphone on the market thus far.

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

Most of us know that when it comes to smartphones, it’s a constant struggle to find the right balance between power, looks, and affordability, with affordability normally losing out in the end. The problem most of the time is that the affordable phones don’t always look the best and typically don’t have the best hardware under the hood. If you want a phone that looks sleek and performs great, you’re going to have to shell out the big bucks, right? LG is attempting to challenge that idea with the Optimus L9, a new handset at T-Mobile that comes with the very manageable price tag of $79.99. The question is: can this phone deliver the goods at a budget price, or do the savings mean that the phone ultimately disappoints in other areas?

AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 Review

AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 Review

With the Nokia Lumia 920 we've been promised a hero device for Windows Phone 8, and indeed it has been defended several time before its release by Nokia and Microsoft - in so many words. But is Nokia's Nokia's brand power enough to make us believe the hype? This is supposed to be a "fundamental shift" right along with the wave of Windows 8 touchscreen devices that are currently on their way to retail stores and homes right this minute - is it time for Nokia to shine?

Nexus 4 Review

Nexus 4 Review

Google is up to its fourth Nexus smartphone, and the LG Nexus 4 faces a very different mobile world from the heady days of the Nexus One. Back then, Google's Nexus led the field in specifications, a deliberate kick to manufacturers to be more imaginative with their Android devices. The Nexus 4, however, faces ambitious and best-selling Android phones (not to mention the iPhone 5, and the launch of Windows Phone 8) that are already capable and compelling. Does the new Nexus have a place in the mobile market? Read on for our full review.

Read on for our full thoughts.

Motorola DROID RAZR HD Review

Motorola DROID RAZR HD Review

With Verizon's next in an ever-expanding line of RAZR devices here with the Motorola DROID RAZR HD we're getting essentially the same experience as we did with the RAZR M, except this time it's quite a bit larger. With a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED display on top of a dual-core processor from Qualcomm, it's not just the screen we're impressed with. This device brings on one of the most refined Motorola experiences we've seen thus far, matching at least the impression we've had with the M, and out-doing it for the large-display-lovers.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?

Motorola Electrify 2 Review (US Cellular)

Motorola Electrify 2 Review (US Cellular)

Motorola's first Electrify was a handset that we couldn't help but love. Now Motorola is back with the Electrify 2 on US Cellular, and though its a great looking phone that has some respectable specifications, there are just a few things that come off feeling a little lackluster. The question is: are those underwhelming features enough to make potential owners look elsewhere, or is the Electrify 2 a phone that should have your attention despite a few missteps? Keep on reading to find out.

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

With the Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL, the team brings us what at first appears to be a powerhouse of a smartphone with a giant battery to boot. As it turns out, the processor doesn't take down its competitors in Samsung, Qualcomm, or NVIDIA, but certainly does nice enough to keep up with them in many ways. You're certainly able to play high-powered games, videos play smoothly even at their highest of definitions, and the whole smartphone is easily Huawei's most powerful to date. The lack of uniqueness in the build of the device, on the other hand, should remind you of Huawei's competitors' devices from this past year - it's put us on guard right out of the box, but ends up proving to be far less important than the end product, which is great.
