Nokia 5220 XpressMusic review: Funky-shape jukebox

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic review: Funky-shape jukebox

GSMArena team, 16 October 2008

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic is set to play for it all in the mass market segment. A bunch of music niceties, slim waistline and novel design are crowned with the XpressMusic logo, and that's enough of a commitment to cool sonic experience...

Nokia 6600 slide review: Beautiful to use

GSMArena team, 09 October 2008

Tiny, yet remarkably solid, like a pebble tumbled smooth by the waves, there's something about Nokia 6600 slide that's really hard to resist. By the way, minimalist, extra smooth and exclusive stand equally well for any...

Nokia 6600 fold review: Flip and the city

GSMArena team, 08 October 2008

Smoking hot body, brilliant looks, user-friendly interface and almost no value for money, but still packing quite a punch Ė Nokia 6600 fold is exactly the kind of meal to order from an unpriced menu. The OLED screen, the cool magnetic flip and the mirror front panel just make it all the sweeter and kind of make sure it feels more at home in designer handbags than pockets...

Samsung L700 review: Cool as Metal

Samsung L700 review: Cool as Metal

GSMArena team, 07 October 2008

Samsung L700 is a lower midrange fella and its main selling points are solid construction, metal body and fast 3G speeds. Before you frown at the shortish specs list do remember that it's not aiming high. It's set instead to address...

Nokia N96 review: King's new clothes

GSMArena team, 03 October 2008

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte review: Carbon copy

GSMArena team, 26 September 2008

Ask not what your phone can do for you. It’s Nokia Arte, folks, so the question is who you need to kill to have it. Exquisite materials, sophisticated slider design and state-of-the-art finish are doing their best to camouflage...

Nokia 3600 slide review: Smooth glider

GSMArena team, 26 September 2008

Nokia 3600 slide is one of those handsets which no one seems to covet, love and lust but everybody ends up buying or having. It's a straightforward guess that a S40 handset of subdued but comfortable styling...

Samsung M3200 Beat s review: Never miss a beat

GSMArena team, 24 September 2008

Samsung M3200 Beat s may lack the Serenata sophistication or the feature set of i450 but it walks and talks music. And the dedicated music keys up front are just a bit of a taster. Inside the M3200 Beat...

Nokia 6220 classic review: Sharp-witted shooter

Nokia 6220 classic review: Sharp-witted shooter

GSMArena team, 18 September 2008

We can call the Nokia 6220 classic an attempt to regain some 5 megapixel ground. The compact smartphone carries some serious imaging power. Xenon flash, active lens cover, VGA video @ 30 fps and TV-out do sound exciting, don't they? It would've been all too easy...


Samsung S7330 review: Soul junior

Samsung S7330 review: Soul junior

GSMArena team, 16 September 2008

Someone at Samsung must be really fond of the Soul design and, honestly, we can see why. How we feel about it is not the point though. The Soul looks are spilling down the company portfolio, like it or not. The latest incarnation - Samsung S7330 - packs in stylish exterior...

Samsung B2700 review: Tough and geared

GSMArena team, 11 September 2008

Samsung may be flying high on INNOV8 but they sure have at least a toe on the ground. Just recently they spilled the low-to-mid-end bag, so we donít forget a flagship is only as good as the fleet behind it. No handset in the handful they just...

LG KT610 review: Communicator wannabe

GSMArena team, 27 August 2008

KT610 is LG's way of saying the communicator class isn't reserved for insanely expensive high end devices. Packing a large full-QWERTY keyboard and neat and simple looks, the S60 Symbian handset spells business. It might have...

Nokia 5320 review: Teensmart

GSMArena team, 08 August 2008

XpressMusic is back on Symbian turf. Last time we checked the musical talent was playing second fiddle to smartphone skill but maybe it's time for the tables to turn. Nokia have ditched the swivel and are playing it rather low key on the 5320 exterior. Fair enough, less express in XpressMusic but no complaints elsewhere: FP2, HSDPA. Well geared up in terms of connectivity and running on the latest Symbian...

GSMArena team, 06 August 2008

In-phone GPS is no longer the next big thing in the industry. All right, it may not be run-of-the-mill just yet but it's where it's heading. The point now is how many extras will top the GPS and give users a bigger and better treat...

LG KC550 review: No thrills, all camera

GSMArena team, 30 July 2008

A line of multimedia-oriented handsets has secured LG a strong foothold in the cameraphone kingdom. LG KC550 is probably the first to join the club with only imaging in mind. A mid-range handset with a 5 megapixel camera...

GSMArena team, 15 July 2008

HTC Touch Diamond vs. Samsung i900 Omnia: Head-to-Head

GSMArena team, 02 July 2008

Itís PocketPC playoffs and HTC are giving Samsung a match at the GSM Arena. With two of the stars of the season arriving in our office all at once, we thought itís a heck of an opportunity for some Diamond-Omnia-Diamond-Omnia-Diamond-Omnia game-set-match. We got two aces up to the challenge, so sit back and stretch out. Ah well, get that six-pack too and join us for the kick-off...
