Acer Liquid review: Android breed

GSMArena team, 04 February 2010

The Android meter is ticking. Acer want a piece of the pie. We all add two and two together. Yesterday, Acer didnít know the first thing about phones (if you can say that for a household name in notebooks), today theyíre betting on two horses in the...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 review: Another one in

GSMArena team, 29 January 2010

It was back in February 2008 that the XPERIA lineup was born and it took Sony Ericsson almost two years to bring about the XPERIA X1 successor. The long waiting is over now and the XPERIA X2 is keen to prove to us all it was...

Motorola MILESTONE review: Hello Droid

GSMArena team, 26 January 2010

Android devices come from all walks of life but rarely do they carry as much baggage as the MILESTONE. Motorola seem to be betting the farm with the MILESTONE and the warm reception itís getting must leave them breathing a sigh of relief...

Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO review: Type and go

GSMArena team, 22 January 2010

The S3650 Corby was just the beginning of a lineup that appears to have no visible end. There is a Corby for the touchscreen addicts, a Corby for the music buffs, Corby for the heavy texters, Corby for the young, and one for...

Nokia X6 review: Going up the ladder

Nokia X6 review: Going up the ladder

GSMArena team, 18 January 2010

In the world of Nokia it's all about evolution, rather than revolution. So don't expect the specs on the X6 to blow your mind. The handset is the next step for the market leader scrambling to make up for a late start in touch- screens. To be honest, the Symbian S60 touch...

Samsung M5650 Lindy review: Corby's significant other

GSMArena team, 12 January 2010

You just couldn't have missed the Samsung Corby. Dirty cheap phone with replaceable rear covers and more clones than features. That's the one. Newsflash: the outbreak of cheap as chips touchscreen handsets continues now that we have the Lindy - fresh off Corby's rib...

BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review: Back in Black... Berry

BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review: Back in Black... Berry

GSMArena team, 08 January 2010

RIM are a company with style and simply hopping on the touchscreen bandwagon with another iPhone wannabe just wouldn't suit them. They certainly realized the importance of having a full-touch device in their portfolio but wanted a clear and legible BlackBerry imprint on it...


LG GW300 review: No-frills messaging

LG GW300 review: No-frills messaging

GSMArena team, 05 January 2010

The LG GW300 is quite a rare bird: it packs a full QWERTY keyboard and looks like a BlackBerry handset, but has a completely different line of business. Even if it was designed with teens and tweens in mind...

Motorola MILESTONE preview: First look

Motorola MILESTONE preview: First look

GSMArena team, 31 December 2009

Motorola must have enjoyed the feel of ropes against their back. There's no other explanation for the MILESTONE. They obviously needed to be pushed against the ropes to remember what made them the world's largest manufacturer. It's been a long road for them, with plenty of milestones. But that last one marks the end of a particularly steep downhill stretch.

Sony Ericsson Hazel preview: First look

GSMArena team, 30 December 2009

The Sony Ericsson GreenHeart series have been keeping us busy this holiday season, haven't they? We called the Elm red hot and there goes the Hazel, which is simply Ö red. Now, no offense is meant here - the Hazel just doesn't...

Sony Ericsson Elm preview: First look

GSMArena team, 30 December 2009

The Sony Ericsson may be green at heart but it sure looks like a red hot package complete with imaging, connectivity and novel design. Makers are keen to ride the green wave and phones are rushing to catch up. It seemed Sony Ericsson's GreenHeart had a slow start...

Nokia X3 review: Music X-three-M

GSMArena team, 28 December 2009

The Nokia X3 is our first glimpse into the new Xseries and weíre excited to see how things have changed since XpressMusic ran the show. And they have changed, the new angular look is a testament to that. The S40 on the inside has changed as well, throwing Ovi Store and basic multi-tasking into the mix.

BlackBerry Curve 8520 review: BlackBerry Lite

GSMArena team, 22 December 2009

With the Bold almost reaching perfection in the BlackBerry arts, new horizons need to be explored to keep the spark alive. The tall task to pioneer new territories (in BlackBerry terms anyway) falls on to the Curve 8520. The new Curve has a price tag thatís easier on the wallet...

Palm Pre review: A pebble in your hand

GSMArena team, 19 December 2009

It's not like we didn't tell you. And hey, it's not like we're on time either. But we guess better late than sorry goes both ways. Once a popular (mostly stateside) PDA and smartphone maker, Palm were going full blast from safe to sorry. So, did they try to put the brakes?...

GSMArena team, 15 December 2009

Ah, the futuristic appeal of touchscreens - consumers can't get enough of them. Enter the Samsung S5560. With a 5MP camera and Wi-Fi, it's two widgets ahead of the competition. The rest mostly follows the recipe for success...

Nokia 5230 review: Foot soldiers get smarter

GSMArena team, 12 December 2009

When touchscreen handsets start to take over the lower segments of the market you know the rules of the game have changed. The Nokia 5230 is a smartphone but it doesnít mind rubbing shoulders with the common run of handsets. So, itís free...

LG BL20 New Chocolate review: Bittersweet Noir

GSMArena team, 10 December 2009

The Chocolate revival is no news and the LG BL20 New Chocolate is not a headliner in the sense of the unique and inspired BL40. But weíre still about to have another sugar-coated meeting with an extraordinary handset, fresh off the LG design board...

BlackBerry Bold 9700 review: Dare you go

GSMArena team, 8 December 2009

Some handsets will work their socks off to have their fifteen minutes of fame, others are simply born into stardom. The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is certainly fortunate to carry a name that stands for popularity and excellence in the RIM family of phones. But this kind of fame can be less a blessing and more of a curse if the successor fails to live up to the standards set by its illustrious namesake

Nokia E72 review: The business of messaging

GSMArena team, 28 November 2009

Nokia E72 is one of those handsets everybody is talking about long before their release. There may be nothing much to talk about Ė after all everyone knows what to expect of the Eseries and they have never let us down. But still savoring the next batch...

Nokia N900 review: A new hope

GSMArena team, 26 November 2009

Itís crystal clear by now that the Nokia N900 has almost nothing to do with the traditional Nseries values. The full QWERTY side-slider may look similar to its double-digit mates but the Maemo experience is completely different...
