Nokia 5800 XpressMusic review: Young as you feel

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic review: Young as you feel

GSMArena team, 14 January 2009

It's touchscreen o'clock for Nokia and the stage is set for the 5800 XpressMusic. Go ahead and touch it. We did and we've got a story to tell. Now, it's technically not the first time Nokia get their hands dirty with touch screens, but it sure feels they really mean business this time. For Nokia 5800 is not the only story here...

Nokia E63 review: E for Economy

Nokia E63 review: E for Economy

GSMArena team, 07 January 2009

Nokia E63 is the next QWERTY messenger by Nokia, set on the glorious path of the E71. Only this time it slips off the high heels to walk it in plain straight and simple boots instead. And the matching price tag leaves little doubt of what this Working Joe here is all about...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 review: A new experience

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 review: A new experience

GSMArena team, 23 December 2008

There’s a lot to fall for in Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. Possibly the hottest looker of a PocketPC is also heavy on skill. Heavy enough to not just scratch out a living as a one-hit-wonder but aim for the WinMo top. The extra solid metal looks, gorgeous screen and the right pinch of novelty called XPERIA panels look to us as good enough reasons for the X1 to be hyped and romanticized...

Sony Ericsson G705 review: Slide-o-matic

GSMArena team, 04 December 2008

One of a kind is the last thing to call Sony Ericsson G705 upon as much as a glimpse. But conceited scoffs may be bitterly regretted. Wi-Fi, GPS and lightning fast data are likely to turn the snooty sneer into...

Nokia N79 review: Swiss Army knife

GSMArena team, 20 November 2008

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 – 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

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 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

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

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 don’t forget a flagship is only as good as the fleet behind it. No handset in the handful they just...
