    Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Review

    We’re huge fans of the Samsung Galaxy S4 — it is, hands down, one of the best premium smartphones in the market today.  The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini takes the S4, shrinks it down to a more compact size, and trades in the high-end guts for a selection of midrange components. Design Physically, it’s a near-exact copy of the S4, just with more compact dimensions.  Everything from the rounded edges, silvery sides, and glossy plastic […]

    Vivo Xplay 3S Boasts 490 PPI 2K Display

    A high-resolution screen isn’t everything.  That said, we can’t help but be impressed with the display panel on the Vivo Xplay 3S, which boasts a whopping 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and 490 PPI of pixel density. The successor to the China-only Xplay, it’s officially the first smartphone to pack a crazy 2K resolution display, setting the bar for the kind of high-res panels we’re likely to see in premium smartphones next year.  From the studio […]

    Cluster for iPhone Review

    Apps that put a visual gimmick on familiar productivity tools don’t typically stroke my interest. Most productivity tools, from calendars to lists, tend to work better in a simple format, with decorative items serving to clutter things up or slow things down.  Cluster is an app that attempts to put a visual spin to digital planning and task management.  Does it work?   We’ll see. The Good Surprisingly, we like the idea behind the app.  Adding […]

    HTC One Max Review

    Remember when the Galaxy Note first hit the scene and some people complained there’s no way anyone will want a phone that big?  Yeah, time has proven them wrong.  In fact, the big-screen smartphone market has evolved into a very profitable niche. HTC made their official entry into giant screens with the HTC One Max.  Like many handsets in the same category, it comes with premium pricing to go with that supersized screen real estate.  […]

     
  • Motorola Moto G Review

    Motorola Moto G Review

    Easily one of the best smartphone values in the market right now, the Motorola Moto G caused quite a bit of excitement when it was announced a short while back. While the price and specs combo is definitely attractive,  will it be solid enough to satisfy your smartphone needs? Design At the price range it’s selling at, we could easily forgive if the Moto G felt cheaply-built.  But, alas, it isn’t.  In fact, both design […]

    Blackberry Z30 Review

    While Blackberry’s newest flagship phone no longer carries the same high-profile as other manufacturer’s top-of-the-line offering, that doesn’t mean the Blackberry Z30 is something to immediately pass up.  Or does it? Design In terms of design, the Z30 looks like any premium smartphone, with rounded corners, predominantly black shell, silver accents, and soft-touch back.  Far as we can tell, there’s really no distinguishing feature that makes it a “Blackberry” as opposed to some other handset, […]

    Nokia Lumia 525 Announced

    Nokia has announced a new affordable smartphone.  Called the Nokia Lumia 525, it’s the Microsoft subsidiary’s follow-up to the widely popular Lumia 520. As a successor to the 520, it doesn’t veer too far from the similarly mid-range smartphone.  It takes on near the same dimensions (119 x 64 x 9.9 mm), with a similar styling.  This time around, however, it comes with changeable covers in black, orange, yellow and white colors. Details of the […]

     
  • Spaceteam Review

    Spaceteam Review

    Rarely will you find a game nowadays that feel super-original.  When you do, however, it feels really special.  And that’s genuinely the case with the clever multiplayer game, Spaceteam. What makes it so different?  First, this is a multiplayer-only game — there’s no single player mode.  Second, it’s local-only multiplayer played via WiFi or Bluetooth — no remote multiplayer over an internet connection.  Third and most importantly, it’s downright hilarious, making for an entertaining party […]

    Google Nexus 5 Review

    The Google Nexus 5 is arguably the best smartphone deal in the land right now, with its combination of high-end specs and very affordable pricing.  But is it the right Android smartphone for you? Design As with previous Nexus handsets, the latest flagship embraces a minimalist aesthetic.   The design, however, manages to give it just a bit more premium feel compared to its predecessors.  While it takes over your whole hand, it does have a […]

    Motorola Moto G Announced

    What’s the best smartphone deal around today?  Signs kind of point towards the Nexus 5, with its top-end specs and relatively affordable price.  Well, that could be seriously challenged soon with the Motorola Moto G, which combines somewhat impressive specs, sleek design, and a surprisingly low price point. Loved the Moto X’s design?  Then you’ll love this one, which appears to have coopted the styling of the Google subsidiary’s flagship smartphone.  Even better, it embraces […]
