Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III hands-on: First look

GSMArena team, 3 May 2012

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 review : Double smart

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 review : Double smart

GSMArena team, 28 April 2012

It got around the block quickly enough that entry-level Androids are big money earners. Not that Samsung needed the heads-up. They've had a foot in that door for as long as we can remember. As of late, their Galaxy Y series...

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 24 April 2012

The original Samsung Galaxy Ace is now an entry level device at best, pushed down the ranks by the weight of two sequels. The Galaxy Ace 2 is next in line and we're talking a proper mid-range device. This dual-core smartphone...

HTC One V review: Chin up

GSMArena team, 21 April 2012

The One series is the fresh new lineup of smartphones that helped HTC take the spotlight early in 2012. While the One S and One X are flexing muscle at each other as a way to stay sharp for the invasion of the other predators with multi-core processors...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

GSMArena team, 19 April 2012

The question this second-generation Samsung tablet is trying to answer is not "How much better can it get?" The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 stops at how much. It feels safe pretending there's no such thing as a third-generation iPad...


HTC One X review: eXtra special

HTC One X review: eXtra special

GSMArena team, 12 April 2012

How about this for a rebound after a rather quiet second half of last year. A massive change of game plan sees HTC focus on a special few products instead of trying to create a smartphone for every taste. An outstanding result of this effort...

HTC One S review: Onederful

GSMArena team, 11 April 2012

The HTC One S is the middle child of the One family but it just might be the brightest and best looking too. Inside the slender metal case is a treasure chest of new technology - the brains behind the beauty in this piece of smartphone alchemy...

Samsung I8530 Galaxy Beam preview: First look

GSMArena team, 9 April 2012

You don't see many of those around. Perhaps you're looking in the wrong place. As always, we're glad to be of service but, no, the Samsung i7410 didnít ring any bells. It was the good old Phone Finder...

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 6 April 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 dispels any doubt about the return of the stylus - the S Pen transforms the tablet into something that will appeal to artist and business types alike. It's a very different experience, one that other tablets cannot match...


Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

GSMArena team, 4 April 2012

The original Galaxy Ace S5830 did well for Samsung in the midrange. And, as we all know by this point, midrange droids are a force to be reckoned with, especially among users looking to move up from dumbphones without breaking the bank. Now, exactly a year later, the S7500 Ace Plus enters...


Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: Different magic

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: Different magic

GSMArena team, 2 April 2012

Samsung's impressive tablet lineup is already in its second generation, but the one that stands out is surprisingly at the lower end of both the size range and the age bracket. The ultra-thin and incredibly light Super-AMOLED-packing Galaxy Tab 7.7 may...


Sony Xperia S review: NXT of kin

Sony Xperia S review: NXT of kin

GSMArena team, 30 March 2012

The Sony Xperia S is the current champion of the NXT series and comes aptly armed with a tack-sharp 720p screen and 12MP worth of stills. It also sets a new design trend for the Xperia line and brings massive improvements to it. The Xperia S comes at a time of change in the...


Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

GSMArena team, 27 March 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as the far too long name suggests, is yet another incarnation of the original Galaxy S. Sure, it has grown an extra CPU core, to go with its 42Mbps network connectivity, but at the end of the day, the newcomer packs a lot ...


Pantech Burst review: LTE on a budget

Pantech Burst review: LTE on a budget

GSMArena team, 21 March 2012

The Pantech Burst is the first budget oriented Android smartphone to hit AT&Tís newly launched LTE network. Interestingly enough however, the fifty-dollar handset shares the exact same CPU and chipset as the top dogs in the carrierís 4G lineup. Throw a 4" sAMOLED...

GSMArena team, 16 March 2012

Huawei Vision review: Farsighted

Huawei Vision review: Farsighted

GSMArena team, 12 March 2012

With Incredibly Fast and About to Take Off written across their flag, Huawei took this year's MWC by a storm. Firing up on all cores - four of them, in case you've missed it - they pinned themselves on the Android map with an impressive new lineup of smartphones and a shocker...

Sony Xperia S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II: S-hootout

GSMArena team, 09 March 2012

Released nearly a year apart, the Sony Xperia S and the Samsung Galaxy S II are not that different - both are flagship droids with dual-core CPUs and 4.3" screens. But the newer Xperia S brings some fine upgrades, like a 12MP camera and a 720p screen.

Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance review: While-u-wait

GSMArena team, 07 March 2012

Here's one to keep you busy while you wait for the Galaxy S III. One that may help the original Galaxy S finally take the hint and hang up its boots. The Galaxy S Advance is the next in a string of sequels looking to get the best afterburn...


Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 05 March 2012

The 10-inch form factor is the corridors of power in tablet terms, but the ones that won't turn your wallet inside out are hard to come by. In the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Samsung seem to have a reasonably-spec'd Android tablet, which might be the answer to that...


Sony Xperia S preview: Game on

Sony Xperia S preview: Game on

GSMArena team, 02 March 2012

In staging their grand return, Sony Mobile could've done a lot worse than the Xperia S. The fresh divorcees are back on the market, their new Xperia flagship kindly supplying the bang. And while the HD screen and dual-core processor are not exactly...


LG Prada 3.0 review: Slim fit

LG Prada 3.0 review: Slim fit

GSMArena team, 23 February 2012

It's slim and smart, and wears Prada. This little devil is too sexy to hang out with the other droids. It puts on its evening shoes and goes to town. It hates being chased by paparazzi but always turns its better side to the cameras. We'll see what the other droids think about that...

Amazon Kindle Fire review: Midnight oil

Amazon Kindle Fire review: Midnight oil

GSMArena team, 17 February 2012

Like the world needs another 7" Android tablet. Well, maybe it does. Or (more likely), it doesn't. No matter where you stand, the Kindle Fire couldn't be less relevant to this debate. It isn't just another Android tablet. It's a hardware Amazon account, 7 inches...


Galaxy W vs. Xperia Neo V: Vice Wersa

Galaxy W vs. Xperia Neo V: Vice Wersa

GSMArena team, 14 February 2012

Single-core droids will only be getting cheaper and there's plenty to choose from. But if you want to get the best out of a tight budget, making the right choice can prove to be a challenge. We're looking at two phones that launched at the same time and have...


Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

GSMArena team, 1 February 2012

Yep, you read that right. Affordable and dual core wouldn't normally belong in the same sentence. In 2011. And you don't need to press fast forward. Just sit back and enjoy. There's a lot stewing in the industry's pot and we think the place smells of quad core already...

Huawei U8860 Honor review: Way of the Dragon

Huawei U8860 Honor review: Way of the Dragon

GSMArena team, 18 January 2012

The Huawei Honor is made in China and proudly so. Designed, engineered and created in the Land of the Dragon, it's nothing like your run-of-the-mill cheap knock-off. It's a genuine Chinese product, not just something put together for someone else...
