HTC Touch Diamond review: Geek's best friend

GSMArena team, 15 July 2008

We called it a game for the Diamond and Omnia but the crowd is still on their feet, so there we go with the HTC Diamond's lap of honor. The latest HTC squad member, HTC Touch Diamond, might as well be starting a new era for Microsoft OS-powered mobiles....

Samsung G400 Soul review: Fold and touch

GSMArena team, 04 July 2008

All right then, Samsung and Soul know better than simply recasting a slider as a bar. Samsung G400 Soul is the one Soul family member that easily gets singled out. The clamshell phone pulls off near RAZR size and style, and...

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

GSMArena team, 02 July 2008

It’s 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 it’s 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...

Nokia 3120 classic review: Mid-range fighter

GSMArena team, 24 June 2008

Even if every little Nokia wants to be an N95 when it grows up, most of them end up a decent looking gadget with a neat little perk here and there to top the good old calling and texting. Nokia 3120 classic is just another one of them mixed by the time-tested recipe – do the bare minimum but do it right...

GSMArena team, 24 June 2008

Samsung U800 Soul b review: As busy as a "b" can be

GSMArena team, 20 June 2008

Inspiration is one thing you can’t deny the Samsung Soul lineup. Well, that goes to the Ultra too, though all of them thin and sexy handsets are pretty much doomed to oblivion by their own offspring. Back in the day, we said the original U900 Soul was to crown the Ultra lineup...

Nokia N78 review: Bitter sweet

GSMArena team, 11 June 2008

Love it or leave it won't do here, we're afraid. Love it or hate it is more like it. There's so much to get excited about with Nokia N78. The excellent display and capable camera, topped with Navi wheel, FM transmitter, GPS and Wi-Fi sure round off a nice deal. And yes, the latest FP 2 is a downright treat. If only… Well, you must know already what we think of the package. Anyway, you're welcome to read on. Nokia N78 has a whole review up ahead to unleash its potential and a lifetime to beg for a facelift.

LG KF750 Secret review: No secret, all guts

GSMArena team, 05 June 2008

One thing we know about the LG KF750 Secret is that it's hard to resist. Keeping it hush is not an option. The handset seems to have it all - turn-head exterior, top-notch skill and a few exotic extras to spice things up. Looks have long been the defining feature of the Black Label series by LG. Now, the Secret brings some muscle to tip the form vs. content scale the other way...

The Nokia N78 boasts a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, Symbian OS with the latest S60 Feature pack 2, built-in GPS receiver, Wi-Fi, the intriguing Navi wheel navigation solution and an FM transmitter. All those features are enough to make it a worthy successor of the highly popular and capable Nokia N73. Of course, with a similar feature set, Nokia N82 will rival the Nokia N78.

Sony Ericsson W980 Walkman review: 8 gigs of character

GSMArena team, 23 May 2008

It's no news any more that we've been playing with one of the hotties of the season for some time now. Sony Ericsson W980 made a glorious entrance but we're yet to see about the exit. Set to top the Walkman feature phone lineup, W980 carries along 8 GB worth of storage, a 3 megapixel camera and a built-in accelerometer. The touch-sensitive keys and the latest Sony Ericsson feature phone interface add to the excitement. Still not interested? Then try to think of another music phone with a built-in FM transmitter!

Sony Ericsson R306 Radio review: Stay tuned

GSMArena team, 21 May 2008

Sony Ericsson R306 Radio is quite unusually set to revolve around one single thing - listening to radio on-the-go. Its built-in radio tuner works in both FM and AM. The lower midrange R306 Radio delivers on other fronts too - it packs a 1.3 megapixel camera...

LG KF750 Secret preview: Adding to the fun

LG KF750 Secret preview: Adding to the fun

GSMArena team, 16 May 2008

Sophisticated looks and exclusive bodywork have unfailingly implied a no-thrills performance. Now, that may as well be the Secret about LG KF750. What we have here is an exquisitely crafted premium handset with a feature pack worthy of its looks. The LG KF750 Secret is the third slimmest handset to feature a 5 megapixel camera and that's just the icing of the cake. Touch screen and exotic Neon Touch navigation, some amazing video recording capabilities and auto-rotation get delivered in a carbon fiber and tempered glass package. Never has Black Label promised this much.

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

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...

Samsung i550/i550w review: Low-key all-in-one

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...
