Nokia Asha 302 review: E-serious

GSMArena team, 10 May 2012

The Nokia Asha 302 comes between the Asha 300 and the Asha 303 in Nokia's updated featurephone lineup, but it doesn't quite follow the numerical order. Although obviously not a smartphone, this S40 messenger is almost halfway there. It aims...

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 review : Double smart

GSMArena team, 28 April 2012

It got around the block quickly enough that entry-level Androids are big money earners. Not that Samsung needed the heads-up. They've had a foot in that door for as long as we can remember. As of late, their Galaxy Y series...

HTC Titan II review: Wrath of the Titan

GSMArena team, 26 April 2012

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 24 April 2012

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

GSMArena team, 19 April 2012

The question this second-generation Samsung tablet is trying to answer is not "How much better can it get?" The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 stops at how much. It feels safe pretending there's no such thing as a third-generation iPad...

HTC One X review: eXtra special

HTC One X review: eXtra special

GSMArena team, 12 April 2012

How about this for a rebound after a rather quiet second half of last year. A massive change of game plan sees HTC focus on a special few products instead of trying to create a smartphone for every taste. An outstanding result of this effort...

You don't see many of those around. Perhaps you're looking in the wrong place. As always, we're glad to be of service but, no, the Samsung i7410 didnít ring any bells. It was the good old Phone Finder...

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

GSMArena team, 4 April 2012

The original Galaxy Ace S5830 did well for Samsung in the midrange. And, as we all know by this point, midrange droids are a force to be reckoned with, especially among users looking to move up from dumbphones without breaking the bank. Now, exactly a year later, the S7500 Ace Plus enters...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: Different magic

GSMArena team, 2 April 2012

Samsung's impressive tablet lineup is already in its second generation, but the one that stands out is surprisingly at the lower end of both the size range and the age bracket. The ultra-thin and incredibly light Super-AMOLED-packing Galaxy Tab 7.7 may...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

GSMArena team, 27 March 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as the far too long name suggests, is yet another incarnation of the original Galaxy S. Sure, it has grown an extra CPU core, to go with its 42Mbps network connectivity, but at the end of the day, the newcomer packs a lot ...

Apple iPad 3 review: Hotter than ever

GSMArena team, 22 March 2012

So, the iPad is dead, long live the iPad. That's also part of the deal. The retirement of the first-generation of the Apple tablet is nothing out of the ordinary. There used to be the iPad and the iPad 2. Now, we have the iPad and the iPad 2 is the backup, the second choice...

GSMArena team, 21 March 2012

Nokia X2-02 review: Two in one

GSMArena team, 14 March 2012

Another dual-SIM phone by Nokia should be about as surprising as snow in Finland. And while we can understand it if you don't exactly brace yourselves for a shocker, being prepared won't hurt. The Nokia X2-02 has some real nice treats for all of you who like surprises...

Sony Xperia S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II: S-hootout

GSMArena team, 09 March 2012

Released nearly a year apart, the Sony Xperia S and the Samsung Galaxy S II are not that different - both are flagship droids with dual-core CPUs and 4.3" screens. But the newer Xperia S brings some fine upgrades, like a 12MP camera and a 720p screen.
