HTC HD2 review: Portrait of a rockstar

HTC HD2 review: Portrait of a rockstar

GSMArena team, 17 November 2009

Quietly brilliant is what HTC like to call themselves and they’ve been giving enough proof lately. But allow us to disagree. The last thing to call the HD2 is quiet – the monster of a PocketPC simply screams rock'n'roll...


Nokia N97 mini review: Less is more

Nokia N97 mini review: Less is more

GSMArena team, 12 November 2009

The Nokia army of touchscreen smartphones gets larger by the hour and the Nokia N97 mini is surely one of the most interesting new recruits. The Finnish company has obviously reconsidered its priories and now focuses on optimization, rather than expansion with its flagships...

Nokia 6760 slide review: Compact messaging

GSMArena team, 12 November 2009

One of a kind would be a massive overstatement but there's something about the Nokia 6760 slide that's clearly against the usual run of things. Full QWERTY keyboards are an increasingly common...

HTC HD2 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 10 November 2009

The dragon in the HTC camp has awoken, ladies and gentlemen, and it’s time it shows what it’s capable of. Be it a dragon, or a lion, the HTC HD2 or HTC Leo as it has been codenamed prior to release is truly a spectacular device that...

Acer neoTouch review: The dragon within

GSMArena team, 07 November 2009

It must be sweet October for Microsoft, with the launch of WinMo 6.5 on the 6th followed by the desktop Windows 7 on the 22nd. Acer are quick to sneak into the spotlight and make the most of the primetime coverage...


Sony Ericsson Aino review: I know fun

Sony Ericsson Aino review: I know fun

GSMArena team, 05 November 2009

Sony Ericsson are on the move recently and the Aino is very much part of the agenda. But living in the shadow of the Satio and X10 is not much fun we guess. So, the Sony Ericsson Aino is keen to live a double life...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 03 November 2009

With the X10 Sony Ericsson have gone from zero to hundred in a split second. While they may know their way around high-end devices, pulling off an undertaking such as the XPERIA X10 must have been a special...


HTC Touch2 review: Beyond the basics

HTC Touch2 review: Beyond the basics

GSMArena team, 02 November 2009

Affordable isn't the most common word in the HTC vocabulary but a company whose sole line of business is smartphones is not quite expected to speak the language of the masses. That said, we really need to define affordable first...


Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE review: The light side of life

Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE review: The light side of life

GSMArena team, 31 October 2009

It's business as usual on the WinMo front and all the action seems to be around the upper end of the pricing scale. Impressive as those top PocketPCs may be, they are hardly the stuff that makes the sales meters tick and bring the profits that fuel the R&D machine...

LG BL40 New Chocolate review: Chef’s best

GSMArena team, 29 October 2009

It was handsets like the original Chocolate that put LG on the map. But simply playing with the big boys was never going to be enough. It takes creativity to outsmart and outdo some formidable rivals. LG never shied...

Sony Ericsson Satio review: Shooter by vocation

GSMArena team, 27 October 2009

Sony Ericsson have long ago shown that they are not afraid of any challenge, producing handsets that have claimed a top spot on the market. There are still plenty of fans from those good old days that would love to see another market-leading device thrown their way...

LG GD510 Pop review: Mobile pop culture

GSMArena team, 22 October 2009

It looks like LG have been playing their own version of will it blend. There's no need to tell you they're not playing for fun - they're rather trying to squeeze some more cash off a couple of hot-selling handsets. So, here's the deal. Get your blender...

Sony Ericsson Satio vs. Samsung Pixon12: 12MP shootout

Sony Ericsson Satio vs. Samsung Pixon12: 12MP shootout

GSMArena team, 21 October 2009

A year's truce must've been enough and some heavyweight sharpshooters are called to arms again. In fact, there's never been a ceasefire in the battle for profit. But we're about to look at the future of cameraphones and the battle to take place is more for glory than anything else.

Satio vs. Pixon12: 12MP shootout teaser

GSMArena team, 16 October 2009

It took cameraphones exactly one year to take the next step in their evolution, closing the gap on dedicated digicams even more. As usual we are here, carefully tracking the progress and checking out if it's going in the right direction...

GSMArena team, 14 October 2009

Windows Mobile 6.5 review: Saving steam for seven

GSMArena team, 11 October 2009

The OS is half a phone’s worth and there’s little wonder everyone is trying to make it the better half. In the case of Windows Mobile the emphasis really is on everyone. Version 6.5 is up and running but is it the upgrade everyone was waiting for...

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...

GSMArena team, 30 September 2009

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...
