This month—at least for me—has become the “review big phones” month. Just last week, I reviewed the new HTC DROID DNA for Verizon and now I’ve gotten my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note II. This true “phablet” is a beast, not only from the outside, but on the inside too. Like I did for my review of the DROID DNA and probably most devices going forward, I’m going to review this phone based on my experience and not just provide a rundown list of where stuff is located and bullet points on specs. If...

Let me preface this review by saying that I’ve owned, not reviewed, my fair share of Android devices. From the HTC EVO 4G (my first experience with Android), to my previous device, the Galaxy S III and a slew of other devices in between. For whatever, no matter what Android device I’d get, I’d always find myself going back to my iPhone. Sometimes I would miss the way my iPhone felt in my hand and other times I miss certain apps, but regardless of the reason, I always felt bad when I switched back from Android, it was...

The iPhone 5, by Apple, is considered by many to be the biggest product launch in the history of consumer electronics. The iPhone has been hyped for what feels like forever, even prior to the iPhone 4S, when many people thought it [the 4S] would feature all of the 5′s design cues. After months of leaks, many of which can be blamed for taking the “surprise”...

When HTC and Sprint announced the EVO 4G LTE, it came shortly after the announcement of another HTC device, the stunning, One X (for AT&T). With the EVO 4G LTE sporting the same 4.7-inch HD display, Android 4.0 with HTC’s Sense 4 and ultra-thin body, one would naturally assume, the device would be almost the same. While that is mostly accurate, the aesthetics...

Last year, HTC had some amazing quarters, in terms of sales, with each one besting the one before it. That is until Apple dropped the iPhone 4S in October and set a new record in the fourth quarter. Samsung, HTC’s main Android OEM rival, has also been having a stellar year, with the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Nexus (the official Google device), not to mention...

So, I’ve had my Nokia Lumia 900 for a few hours now and feel safe letting everyone know my first impressions. When I picked up the device for the first time, it honestly felt like no other phone I’ve held before. The beveled edges and matte finish, of the poly-carbonate back, makes the device very fitting for my hands. The device does have some weight...

Earlier in the week we wrote about the Nokia Lumia 900 having data connectivity issues (which you can read about here). These issues mainly included a loss of data connection after the device was rebooted or turned from airplane mode back to ‘phone mode’. Nokia has acknowledged the issue and is pushing an update on or around April 16. The update will...

I was given to opportunity to give a brief overview and unboxing of the Samsung Focus S. The Samsung Focus S is a Windows 7.5 Mango device with a 4.3 inch super AMOLED Plus display. Sporting an excellent 8MP camera, and a 1.3MP front facing shooter this device is perfect for pocket to picture shooting or video calls. The Samsung Focus S is very light weighing...
