Asus Memo Pad ME572C review: A pad to remember

Asus Memo Pad ME572C review: A pad to remember

GSMArena team, 11 February 2015

We have in our anxious reviewer hands the current top-dog of the Asus 7-inch crowd, the Memo Pad 7 ME572C. The Asus naming convention doesn’t help much in identifying specific models and one must resort to alphanumeric internal designations to differentiate it from the more humble Memo Pad 7 ME176C.

Lenovo S90 Sisley review: Under cover

Lenovo S90 Sisley review: Under cover

GSMArena team, 06 February 2015

The Lenovo S90 Sisley wants to be many things at once and one up every possible rival in the crowded midrange. An AMOLED screen, an 8MP selfie cam complete with an LED flash, Dual-SIM and LTE in a package powered by Snapdragon 410 and designed by apple but not in California.


Xiaomi Redmi 2 review: Spare hand

Xiaomi Redmi 2 review: Spare hand

GSMArena team, 3 February 2015

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 is helping the company cross into the 64-bit era. A catchy enough headline for a sequel that’s not overly generous with the upgrades. On second thought, a new generation chipset (lower-midrange but still), a more recent OS and LTE are not a package to frown on...

Samsung Galaxy A5 and A5 Duos review: Five star

GSMArena team, 30 January 2015

Samsung's newly found love for “premium build” is spilling down the ranks and if the new A-series get half the love and attention the S-line has been getting, it will be a job well done. The Koreans are right to try and stir things up in the midrange...

GSMArena team, 27 January 2015

Samsung Galaxy A3 and A3 Duos review: A-ddictive

GSMArena team, 23 January 2015

HTC Desire 820 & Desire 820 dual SIM review: The doppelganger

GSMArena team, 20 January 2015

In a lot of ways the HTC Desire 820 is the natural continuation of the mid-range handset line and can be considered more or less an upgraded version of the Desire 816. It is a solid device on its own...

Sony Xperia C3 and C3 Dual review: Let me take a selfie

GSMArena team, 16 January 2015

Meizu MX4 Pro review: Sharpened up

GSMArena team, 13 January 2015

Pro in a smartphone’s name implies bigger and better – so much so that it’s even been abused to fool the unsuspecting. Meizu did not resort to such trickery though and their MX4 Pro takes things up more than just a notch from the stock version...

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime review: Mirror shot

GSMArena team, 12 December 2014

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has an ambitious name, but behind it is an ordinary midrange phone. It puts functionality ahead of screen fidelity, throwing all the pixels they could afford at the front facing camera instead. As with other Galaxy Grands...
