BlackBerry Curve 9380 review: Not what youíd expect

GSMArena team, 29 December 2011

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is RIMís first ever-released Curve with a touchscreen. The Curve lineup is usually an expression of RIMís understanding for a budget phone and this one supposedly, doesnít make a difference. It should ...

Meizu MX review: Amaze U

Meizu MX review: Amaze U

GSMArena team, 22 December 2011

This is easily a phone you can pretend doesn't exist. And you don't have to try too hard either. The Meizu MX is something of a chimera. An iPhone body and a droid mind. It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to. For a phone coming from...

Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V review: Five to go

GSMArena team, 19 December 2011

Do we cancel the show if the star is not available? This one must've crossed some minds over at Sony Ericsson when the Xperia Neo had to be discontinued. But no, they didn't cancel it. The crew was told to take five instead while they skimmed ...

Samsung I8350 Omnia W review: By the playbook

GSMArena team, 15 December 2011

When Windows Phone launched a year ago, we were excited to first see it on the Super AMOLED screen of the Samsung Omnia 7. Twelve months or so later, Samsung are sort of in power-saving mode in the joint venture with Microsoft. Their Omnia W...

HTC Rhyme review: Pour Femme

GSMArena team, 13 December 2011

Alright. This one's a bit different. So we act accordingly. And because we're not quite versed in all things fashion, let's move straight to what we're good at. Meet the HTC Rhyme. Seriously, now. Tough job building a ladies phone - but hey, that's what...

Samsung Focus S review: Different kind of flagship

Samsung Focus S review: Different kind of flagship

GSMArena team, 9 December 2011

The Samsung Focus S is the top dog in the Korean companyís Windows Phone lineup. It is the bigger brother of the Samsung Focus Flash in AT&Tís smartphone lineup. The term ďbiggerĒ is almost entirely related to size here. Due to Microsoftís...

Samsung Galaxy W I8150 review: S Plus Lite

GSMArena team, 8 December 2011

The Galaxy S line gets all the attention, but troopers like the Samsung Galaxy W I8150 will see plenty of action too. With a 3.7" screen, it's more compact than the original Galaxy S, but it uses the same souped-up chipset that ticks inside...

Samsung S8600 Wave 3 review: Third time's the charm

GSMArena team, 7 December 2011

It's an easy one to miss. With Mango phones coming from far and wide and droids well at cruising speed, a new smartphone on an emerging platform is going to struggle to get noticed. Apparently, Samsung are in a...

Nokia Lumia 800 review: New beginnings

Samsung Exhibit II 4G review: Second time around

GSMArena team, 1 December 2011

The Samsung Exhibit II 4G is aimed primarily at commitment-challenged consumers. Being one of the quickest product sequels weíve seen in a while, the device is marketed mostly as a Pay as you go phone, which offers you the full...


HTC Radar review: Mango on the radar

HTC Radar review: Mango on the radar

GSMArena team, 30 November 2011

The HTC Radar is the smaller, less expensive, less powerful and - overall - less exaggerated version of the Titan. Now, turn that around and the Radar will be the sensible, down-to-earth and friendlier phone of the two. It will be up to users to decide...

Motorola RAZR XT910 review: Through thick and thin

GSMArena team, 29 November 2011

BlackBerry Curve 9360 review: Up and about

GSMArena team, 25 November 2011

This QWERTY messenger is compact and to the point, with clean and grown up design. The Curve 9360 is sure it can deliver, its confidence unshaken by unknowns and uncertainties. RIM must've enjoyed the safety and comfort of doing what they're best at...

Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman review: Music to go

Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman review: Music to go

GSMArena team, 24 November 2011

This Walkman is still learning to walk. But it sure knows how to mix. One part spicy, one part sweet, sprinkled with sexy and fun. Just donít expect it to mix business with pleasure. This is not a smartphone. Smartphones come...

Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 review: Everyone's invited

GSMArena team, 23 November 2011

The Samsung Galaxy Y is a smartphone approved for all audiences. Perhaps in hindsight, our Galaxy Note review should've been rated PG. But well yeah, we're always wiser in hindsight. Anyway, you donít just wake up one...


HTC Sensation XL review: Music and the beast

HTC Sensation XL review: Music and the beast

GSMArena team, 22 November 2011

They say music soothes even the savage beast. In the case of the HTC Sensation XL, it just makes it cooler. The Sensation XL shares its design and mammoth 4.7" screen with the Titan, but the XL is part of the Android squad and packs a lyrical iBeats...

Kaloyan Kolev, 18 November 2011

Sony Ericsson can sit back and call it a job done. The last of the new Xperias is on the shelves and the impressive lineup gives them plenty of reasons to look forward to the holiday season. Quite a squad they have put together...

Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 review: Power play

GSMArena team, 16 November 2011

Tablets are cool. But they have a purpose too. Larger screens, higher resolution and more mileage out of the battery make them better suited for certain tasks. Thatís why people are not only fascinated by them but do end up actually...


HTC Titan review: Huge is the new big

HTC Titan review: Huge is the new big

GSMArena team, 14 November 2011

One big scary smartphone, the HTC Titan. Visible from space. Oh well, a little exaggeration won't hurt. But as far as we can tell, they certainly wanted it big enough to see from Finland. Microsoft have a thing going on up north that they want to explore. But old-time partners HTC...

In a time honored tradition, we have the latest and greatest cameraphones lined up and ready to shoot for the top. It's been a while, we know. The last time we had a taste of 8MP sharpshooting action was in the distant 2008. 8MP then and 8MP now...

Sony Ericsson Xperia active review: The Rainmaker

GSMArena team, 03 November 2011

Flick it, kick it, throw it, wet it. Drag and drop it. And watch it come back for more. The Sony Ericsson Xperia active is a survivor. The rugged smartphone has a Bravia Reality display and exchangeable covers, 1GHz of oomph and HD video, and plenty of sporty apps. It's got you - tucked under an arm...

Nokia 700 review: Agent seven double-oh

GSMArena team, 31 October 2011

The Nokia 700 has a license to chill. Unburdened with high expectations, this phone is getting ready to surprise you. Not in it for the win, it has too much class to lose. Scorching hot body and super crisp ClearBlack AMOLED screen, the Nokia 700 is stepping on its 1GHz processor to the delight ...
