Sony Ericsson T303 review: Small is beautiful

Sony Ericsson T303 review: Small is beautiful

GSMArena team, 1 May 2008

A sexy minimalist slider, Sony Ericsson T303 gives the low-end a new edge with looks and construction well above its rank. Even if not a full-house in terms of skill and style, the basic multimedia coverage and solid feel in hand are well worth it. The FM radio...

Nokia 3500 classic review: Classicaly simple

Nokia 3500 classic review: Classicaly simple

GSMArena team, 11 April 2008

To get it straight, Nokia 3500 classic is not the kind of handset to have you head-over-heels in love. It was never meant to be. What really matters in this classic from-the-head-not-the-heart scenario is ease of use, decent looks and passable performance. The less...

GSMArena team, 09 April 2008

Fascinating as they are, ultra high-end handsets are not everybody's cup of tea. In fact, the good old mid-range is the bread and butter for every successful mobile phone company, for that's what gets those sales numbers right. As we see it, Samsung i550...

Samsung G810 review: Zoom on Symbian

GSMArena team, 21 March 2008

LG KF600 review: Twice the fun

GSMArena team, 07 March 2008

Touchpads are no longer revolutionary. But they are still not flawless either. The ones we've managed to test so far have all fallen seriously short of being the best thing since sliced bread. However, our experience with LG KF600 at the...

Nokia 8800 Arte review: Art of seduction

GSMArena team, 07 February 2008

Stainless steel and OLED screen: there's no way a handset with that kind of features will ever blend in with the crowd of handsets. Add the hefty price tag and you got the high-end biting the dust too, just like that. But then, there's always someone...
