Nokia 8600 Luna review: Cast in glass

Nokia 8600 Luna review: Cast in glass

Martin Herodek, 01 August 2007

The Nokia 8600 Luna is keen to disarm and seduce. The unconventional materials used, the creative design, the rather practical set of accessories are hard enough to resist. Plus, the Luna is so largely unaffordable that it's tempting. This pretty much sums up...

Samsung U100 review: Razor sharp

Jaroslav Škrabálek, 30 July 2007

The new ultra-slim Samsung U100 captivates with its graceful silhouette, to unveil a multitude of functions. Early this summer Samsung launched their new Ultra Edition II series, which was featured at this year’s 3GSM congress. Slim shape is the underlying trait of all models in the bunch, but they represent different form factors. Along with the Samsung U100, the Ultra Edition II includes the U300, U600, and U700.

Motorola KRZR K3 review: New party star

Jan Horalík, 25 July 2007

There is no doubt that the RAZR V3 by Motorola has become an icon. Success was huge as regards design, so Motorola keeps on trying to replicate it in new models. A compact bunch of models, pretty similar to the RAZR in appearance, comes under the KRZR label. The firstborn was named KRZR K1. Today we are featuring its successor: the KRZR K3.

Samsung U700 review: Ultra fit

Jiří Kuruc, 21 July 2007

Brilliant QVGA display, HSDPA, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, memory card and many other functions in a fashionably slim shape. Samsung U700, a.k.a Samsung Ultra 12.1, is one of the four slim models in the Ultra Edition II Series. The number indication 12.1 refers to the body thickness in millimeters. The U700 model is the slimmest slider ever to support high-speed data transfers over HSDPA.

Sony Ericsson T650 review: T-Series refueled

GSMArena team, 18 July 2007

The exciting new Sony Ericsson T650 pleases the eye, in a wink. A far descendant of the legendary Sony Ericsson T610/T630, the T650 is dressed to kill and packs in some serious high-tech ammo. It’s all there – 3G, TFT display with QVGA resolution, stereo Bluetooth, FM radio, a cracking 3 megapixel camera – and all those are fitted into a bar-shaped handset measuring only 12.5 mm in thickness. You may have heard of Sony Ericsson W880, well… meet his big brother. A serious promise, indeed!


Nokia N76 review: Elegant and smart

Nokia N76 review: Elegant and smart

Jan Horalík, 12 July 2007

Not so long ago phones with open OS, the so called smartphones, were significantly bigger than standard feature phones. And it was just size that would often deter users from purchasing a smartphone. Nowadays, however, smartphones are slowly assuming the dimensions of standard phones. The new Nokia N76 - the first slim clamshell based on Symbian S60 is a brilliant example of this trend.

GSMArena team, 28 June 2007

The Samsung Z560 is a feature-packed clamshell which is equipped with some of the latest technologies in the mobile industry – HSDPA, a 2 megapixel camera with auto focus, microSD memory card slot and a really large 2.3” TFT display with a QVGA resolution. Although neither of these carries the “wow” factor seen in other mobiles, it certainly promises a real enjoyment of your mobile experience.

LG KE850 Prada review: Sophistication made simple

LG KE850 Prada review: Sophistication made simple

GSMArena team, 29 May 2007

The Prada phone by LG is among those handhelds that rely solely on touch-based as opposed to stylus-based interface interaction. The famous Apple iPhone surely started the craze over such devices, but the LG KE850, elsewhere known as the Prada phone, is nothing like iPhone. A highly stylish and versatile multimedia device, the Prada branded mobile is a true joy to the eye and represents the true meaning of a fusion between a full-featured mobile phone and a fashion icon.

They share the same metallic bodies, the same 2 megapixel cameras and the same QVGA TFT display. Other than that software-wise the two Shine handsets are as different as they can be.
