Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini pro review: Mini Me... ssenger

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini pro review: Mini Me... ssenger

GSMArena team, 05 July 2010

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini pro will have to stand on its toes to be seen but it doesnít have to yell to be heard. Small and boxy, this certainly is not just another mobile phone. The X10 mini pro will impress many with the degree of miniaturization...

Apple iPhone 4 review: Love it or hate it

GSMArena team, 01 July 2010

You can't make a phone that everyone loves and Apple is not even trying. Much like any other iPhone so far, the iPhone 4 is a phone that everybody loves AND hates. Appleís latest is always the greatest Ė you have to give them that...

Apple iOS 4 review: Getting there

GSMArena team, 25 June 2010

iPhone 4 launch day came and went and Number Four has taken over. Today, as the dust settles, we hope to move away from the hype and take a clear-headed look at whatís new in the iOS4. No, this isnít a full-featured iPhone 4 review, nor is it...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 21 June 2010

Sony Ericsson donít believe in the one-size-fits-all concept. Their XPERIA lineup stretches from XS to XL. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 fits right in the middle. A grown X10 mini or a smaller X10, the X8 will do well either way...

Gigabyte GSmart S1205 review: A smart duo

GSMArena team, 17 June 2010

Dual-SIM smartphones are hard to get by. The Gigabyte GSmart S1205 is a fresh addition to that scarce product line, but doesnít take its unique selling point as a license to empty your wallet. A well built phone, the GSmart is sturdy as...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini review: Shrink to fit

GSMArena team, 03 June 2010

Samsung S8500 Wave review: Hello, world!

GSMArena team, 01 June 2010

Smartphone for the masses or feature phone of the future? Samsung would gladly have it either way. The question rather is, will the Bada OS keep up the pace of its debut device. Weíve been following the new smart platform since its first. Update: Samsung Dive overview added...

GSMArena team, 20 May 2010

Long-time Sony Ericsson users may find the Hazel the perfect cure for nostalgia. Monster gadgets like the Vivaz and the XPERIA X10 are trusted to get the brand back on track. But for all we know, it takes a good old-fashioned slider to rekindle the romance...

LG GT540 Optimus review: Get smart, get started

GSMArena team, 28 April 2010

We canít be sure but it does look like LG are still feeling the Android water before taking the plunge. Or they might just be too careful not to cast doubt on long standing commitments. You know, the soon-to-be Windows Phone 7. In any case though, their first Android attempts have enough in them to get us excited...

LG GD880 Mini review: Going minimalist

GSMArena team, 28 April 2010

The LG GD880 Mini is a looker. Quite the way to start really, but the Mini isnít all about looks. From the hardware design through the high-res screen to the software Ė everything was crafted by skillful hands. Beauty is function in design Ė nothing is more complex than it needs to be, but beneath the deceptive simplicity thereís a myriad of functions...

HTC HD mini review: Smart pup

GSMArena team, 23 April 2010

There was a time when Windows Mobile used to rule the smartphone seas. Then along came Symbian but thatís a whole other story. It was touchscreen that showed to all the willing challengers that Windows Mobile is just too big to turn around quickly enough and catch the new wind. HTC however seem to disagree and dispel doubts of jumping ship...

Nokia 6303i classic review: Retro chic

GSMArena team, 20 April 2010

Itís either a job that pays the rent or a job to love, not both. If the Nokia 6303i had this mentality it would be in big trouble. Fortunately, thereís nothing to worry about here. Itís a handset that knows its place and does the job itís paid to do. The Nokia 6303i classic is an "i" phone...

GSMArena team, 16 April 2010

If youíve seen the Google Nexus One, youíve seen the HTC Desire. End of story. We liked the Nexus One so be our guest, HTC Desire. But is it all that simple? HTC are so good they build phones for the competition. HTC are so mean they have no issues competing...
