Sony Ericsson C901 review: Cyber-shot reloaded

GSMArena team, 6 October 2009

At first, you might think that the Sony Ericsson C901 is just another 5-megpaixel cameraphone. Well, that’s not terribly exciting in the current market bustling with 8-megapixel snappers, and probing...

Nokia 6600i slide review: I slide, you slide

GSMArena team, 2 October 2009

A while back Nokia released the 6600 pair – the slide and the fold – which we fell for, big time. The seemingly more popular sibling got an update and the 6600i slide will keep on cashing in. Slightly...

The million dollar review: Going window-shopping

GSMArena team, 30 September 2009

This site is usually all about the features and performance, but not today. It's our day-off so we decided to go shopping. Well, window-shopping to be more depressingly precise. And the only bags...

Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO and B3210 CorbyTXT preview: First look

GSMArena team, 24 September 2009

When the Samsung S3650 Corby was announced hardly anyone saw it as something more than a nice looking handset that comes on a really attractive price. As it turns out though that event was the birth of a whole new family that promises to change the way we look at touchscreen handsets...

Nokia E55 review: Five by five

Nokia E55 review: Five by five

GSMArena team, 21 September 2009

Sometimes, a phone is nearly perfect, except for that one small thing you want to change. If you felt that way about Nokia E52, the E55 claims to have the answer. Don't get us wrong - the E52 has killer looks and specs. And the E55… well, like we told you, it's the same phone save for that one little thing.

LG GW520 review: A wholesome Cookie

GSMArena team, 03 September 2009

QWERTY is how the Cookie crumbles and LG are quite keen to build on a winning concept. And they sure didn’t work themselves to the bone. When you’ve got a Best Handset nominee (LG KS360) and a mid-range bestseller (LG KP500)...

Nokia 3720 classic review: Handle without care

GSMArena team, 31 August 2009

The Nokia 3720 classic is putting on its boots, pulling on its anorak, slinging its rucksack over its shoulder and striding out into the unfriendliest of environments: water, dust, tough ground…you name it, this device promises to shrug it off...

Samsung I8000 Omnia II review: A surprising experience

GSMArena team, 28 August 2009

Samsung's top tier of Omnia devices is populated by some seriously heavy-hitters - first the 720p video recording Omnia HD and now the Omnia II - with its best-in-the-business display, WM 6.5...

Nokia 6710 Navigator review: Destination: Anywhere

GSMArena team, 18 August 2009

GPS is a must-have for every self-respecting phone these days. And it doesn’t even have to be a smartphone. From geotagging, through location-aware services and gaming, to full-featured in-car SatNav...

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review: Full musical keyboard

GSMArena team, 14 August 2009

No news is good news and the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is quite keen to go about humming that tune like it didn’t care. Recruiting Symbian for an entertainment job is nothing new really and no, we’re not surprised...

Nokia E52 review: E as in Exceptional

GSMArena team, 11 August 2009

Eseries seem to have been around forever: grown-up, confident and reliable. It’s a small but solid lineup that’s gone a long way from a fairly late start. Perhaps they’ve got a point: the business Finns are not running against the clock to...

LG GD910 review: Tick-tock, tick-tock...

GSMArena team, 07 August 2009

If you see someone having a chat on their wristwatch you may decide they’ve lost contact with the mothership. Well, it beats us what you’d think when the mothership calls back. But maybe this little personality test will help...

HTC Hero review: Born to rise

GSMArena team, 06 August 2009

In the beginning there was G1 as the frontline trooper, the expendable GI. Elsewhere, in the HTC discourse, it was hope and vision. Well, it seems the dreamer’s Dream is coming true and someone there is really proud with what...

Nokia 6720 classic review: Up a notch

GSMArena team, 04 August 2009

Nokia 6720 classic ventures to send the 6220 classic into retirement. There’s a year’s gap between the two gadgets and a casual observer may as well conclude that a year is a mere eye-blink for...

LG GD900 Crystal review: Crystal clear

GSMArena team, 23 July 2009

When talking about good design it's usually all about placing the right elements in the right places. And in the rare cases when an R&D team actually comes up with something innovative, they usually reserve it for a 2000 buck handset like the Motorola Aura...

Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO preview: First look

GSMArena team, 20 July 2009

Samsung are not quite the standard-setter in communicator devices but are obviously keen to have their say. Playing catch up seems well in order for a debut but we guess someone here is set to play for keeps. The Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO is a generously spec’d device that’s poised to tackle the best in the class and even raise the bet...

Nokia 6700 classic review: Sirocco Lite

GSMArena team, 13 July 2009

The slim and stylish no-nonsense handset has been a Nokia trademark ever since the 6300 took the world by storm a few years back. However, it's only now after a run of equally popular successors that we realize just how much the Slim Finn changed the rules of the game...
