Samsung Galaxy S III — Review

Samsung Galaxy S III — Review

Samsung’s latest flagship is good, but is it good enough to fend off the competition? You may have watched the launch of the Galaxy S III live from London, almost six weeks ago. At some point you may have been horrified with the nature theme (pebbles, water, etc) and the “made for humans” catch cry. Honestly, I still cringe a[Read More…]

HTC One XL — Review

HTC One XL — Review

HTC has upped its game from the One X to the LTE-enabled One XL and it’s worth every cent. The HTC One XL isn’t a design we’ve never seen before; it’s the HTC One X with a few tweaks. Well, by “tweaks”, we mean some pretty awesome under-the-hood changes. It picks up where the One X left off, but has[Read More…]

Huawei Vision — Review

Huawei Vision — Review

Looks aren`t always everything, but sometimes they`re enough I`ve been getting to this for nearly 5 months, but I’ve finally gotten here. To be fair, this phone came out at the same time my Galaxy Nexus arrived. I attended the launch of the Huawei Vision back in November, which was held at the White Rabbit Gallery in Sydney. The Vision[Read More…]

HTC One X — Review

HTC One X — Review

The same HTC but with a lot more common ‘Sense’ In 2011 HTC got really excited about releasing their Sensation phone, however in light of what Motorola and Samsung were doing with their Dual-Core offerings in that year, this phone fell short of the calibre of 2011 devices. Despite the Sensation not quite being the beast that it should have,[Read More…]

HTC Velocity 4G — Review

HTC Velocity 4G — Review

Telstra’s first shot at a 4G smartphone, but is it really worth it? Telstra have been marketing their new 4G network like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, and to some of us it really is. 4G brings a whole new level of wireless data speeds — we’ve seen up to and beyond 35Mbps down and 15Mbps up. While[Read More…]

HTC Sensation XL — Review

HTC Sensation XL — Review

Like many people, my first Android phone was a HTC so I was actually quite excited at the prospect of trading my Nexus S in for the Sensation XL for a week for this review.

Galaxy Nexus – First Impressions

Galaxy Nexus – First Impressions

After a few false starts, today I received my Galaxy Nexus purchased from Mobicity and so far this phone is definitely living up to my expectations. The Nexus is not as wide as I expected, it fits in the hand quite easily and is pretty manageable for one-handed operation. It is light, much lighter than I thought it would be,[Read More…]
