HTC Butterfly (X920e) — Review

The best display on the market, at the cost of battery life I’ve always had a soft spot for HTC ever since I laid my eyes on the HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1 way back in the day. They sparked my love for Android and for phone hardware. That was a few years ago now, but even today, their hardware[Read More…]

HTC One SV — Review

How does HTC’s latest instalment in the One line stack up? My love of Android phones has come and gone, and come again. My earliest Android handset was an HTC Magic (the G1 didn’t really count) and I loved it — it had a great form factor, good function, and it worked really well. My next HTC device was the[Read More…]

The Telstra Smart Touch 2 is their second attempt at an Android phone in the[Read More…]

Telstra Uno (ZTE – T12) — Review

The Telstra UNO came out of nowhere a couple of months ago, launching without fanfare into Coles stores where we saw it advertised at a price more usually occupied by the ‘dumbphone’ end of the market. At $44.50 – 50% off its usual price of $89 – it seemed as though it could only be a really bad phone. I[Read More…]

Sony Xperia Go — Review

Sony Xperia Go — Review

The Sony Xperia Go is the active, tough and “rugged” member of the Xperia family. It features similar styling and features to Sony’s other Xperia devices, but has the added benefit of being dust- and water-resistant. For people who require such a device, there are limited choices in the market short of encasing your phone in a bulky shell. We[Read More…]

Motorola RAZR M — Review

Motorola delivers a solid 4G LTE phone with a 4.3 inch edge-to-edge screen. Motorola’s second release this month, the RAZR M is a 4.3 inch 4G LTE device.

Sony Xperia Sola — Review

Sony Xperia Sola — Review

It’s small, it’s light, it’s a clean design and it packs a decent punch! While this isn’t the first Sony phone I’ve used, it’s the first I’ve actually enjoyed using. Would I buy one? No! Would I recommend my “techie” friends buy one? No! Would I recommend to my friends and relatives who want an Android phone but don’t want[Read More…]
