The Nokia Lumia 820 is our first brush with the Finnish company’s next generation of Windows Phone handsets. It has a relatively small battery (1650mAh), smaller than even HTC’s Windows Phone 8X juice pack. And that one certainly didn’t impress us much with its battery life.
The Lumia 820 has a dual-core Krait processor running at 1.5GHz inside (like most other WP8 phones) so we don’t expect this to make any difference, but that 4.3” AMOLED screen probably will. Read more »
The HTC Droid DNA leads the charge of phones with super-sharp screens into the west – it has 5″ 1080p display with an amazing pixel density of 440ppi (the screen looked great when we handled the phone).
The demanding resolution is taken care by the powerful Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a quad-core Krait processor and the new Adreno 320, which is the best an Android phone can get at the moment. But is the 2,020mAh battery too small? Read more »
The Samsung Galaxy Premier is the latest in the line of Samsung droids to undergo out battery test gauntlet, and the dual-core 1.5 GHz device showed some great battery endurance – especially in regards to video playback.
Lets take a look at how this mini powerhouse performs in other areas as well, including talk time and web browsing. Read more »
Wreck-It Ralph is an arcade game based on a movie of the same name, which released last month. The game is made by Disney, who have so far given us a bunch of mobile games, the most popular among them being ‘Where’s My Water?’ and ‘Where’s My Perry?’
Wreck-It Ralph is actually not one game but a combination of three mini games. It features Fix-It Felix, Jr. on which the movie is based along with two new games. Let’s see how they all fare. Read more »
The Nokia Lumia 820 stopped by for a quick visit and the first thing we did was put it in front of our camera. The phone is the second Windows Phone 8 handset from Nokia and it differs from the 920 flagship in several areas.
While it misses out on the PureView and PureMotion action, the Lumia 820 actually has several advantages over the Lumia 920. Read more »
We were able to take the HTC DROID DNA camera out for a spin and see if the beastly smartphone can also double as a proper cameraphone. The 8MP camera of the smartphone is operated in a way very similar to that of the HTC One X+, which we just reviewed.
This means that the still camera and the camcorder interface share the same screen with the two shutter keys located on the right side. Read more »
We managed our usual set of benchmarks on the freshly announced HTC DROID DNA and its Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. We were curious to see how the four Krait cores and the Adreno 320 GPU handle the FullHD screen screen.
The latest Qualcomm chipset didn’t disappoint and we saw the HTC DROID DNA post some pretty impressive scores in our tests. Its high-end rivals were often found lagging behind and at times they were feeling downright underpowered. Read more »
HTC just announced their DROID DNA monster smartphone, but does it have what it takes to challenge the current flagships? The 5″ 1080p is one-of-a-kind at the moment, offering unmatched sharpness. And the Snapdragon S4 Pro is the most powerful chipset in an Android phone right now, though it’s not the only phone to use it. But there are plenty of other variables to consider.
To make the comparison easier, we’ve made a head-to-head table, pitting the HTC DROID DNA against the LG Optimus G and the Samsung Galaxy S III. Check it out! Read more »
For the second time this year, we have an AT&T branded Nokia flagship on our hands. The screaming yellow colored, LTE packing Nokia Lumia 920 is the Finnish company’s latest and greatest creation, booting Microsoft Windows Phone 8. The handset is of vital importance for both Nokia and Microsoft – both companies are betting hugely on its commercial success.
Unlike the Windows Phone devices of yesteryear, the Nokia Lumia 920 for AT&T can finally be called a properly powered smartphone. Read more »
The HTC Desire X is fresh out of our review but there are still things to wrap up. The phone has a 1650mAh battery feeding its dual-core processor and 4″ screen. How does the battery last?
Well, we’ve concluded our full array of battery tests and the results await your inspection after the break. Read more »
What do you get when you combine two franchises that have been done to death? Why the Angry Birds Star Wars, of course.
Angry Birds Star Wars is, as Rovio likes to call it, Angry Birds’ biggest adventure yet. The game is based on the story of the Star Wars franchise and has birds dressed as the characters from the Rebel Alliance whereas the pigs are dressed as the Galactic Empire. After that it’s your usual bird flinging action but with some new abilities. But will that be enough to bring back gamers who have clearly flung enough birds to last a lifetime? Let’s find out.

Microsoft’s latest mobile OS is getting ready for prime time and the ailing HTC is marketing its Windows Phone 8X as the “signature” Windows Phone 8 handset. We already reviewed the 8X, now it’s time to see how long it lasts in our battery test.
The HTC 8X has an 1800mAh Li-Ion battery and a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 chipset – virtually the same specs as AT&T’s One X, expect for the smaller screen (4.3″ vs. 4.7″). Read more »
With the announcement of the iPad mini, Apple will give the already handsomely growing 7-inch tablet market an extra boost. Now that the 7.85-inch slate in our hands, it’s time to take it for a quick spin and see what its deal is.
Some might say out that due to the price there isn’t any deal to be had here. Yet the really beautiful aluminum body of the iPad mini quickly makes you forget about that. Read more »
Dual-SIM phones are still relatively rare and usually limited to the low-end, but the Samsung Galaxy S Duos takes after the Galaxy S III mini in terms of looks (though not in terms of specs, unfortunately).
Dual-SIM phones are usually bought when there are no good plans available – ones that offer enough talk time, texts and data. So, how long can the S Duos last if you need the second SIM for even more talking? Read more »
After taking the arcade racing genre by storm with the original Need for Speed Most Wanted back in 2005, EA rebooted the series this year and put the steering wheel in the able hands of Criterion Games, makers of the popular Burnout games as well as Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
This time, however, the action won’t be limited to the big screen. A mobile version of the game has been released for iOS and Android and although it’s not exactly the same game as the console version, you will find similar races, cop chases and a great roster of cars in what promises to be one of the best racing games on the mobile platform. We put our seat belts on and decided to take it for a test drive. Read more »
