The Sony Xperia go is here and is ready to get the GSMArena review treatment. The rugged droid will be eyed by many as it seems like one of the best smartphones you can take to the beach with you.
The Xperia go is descendant of the Xperia Active, a tough little droid, which we met (and loved) at the end of last year. The new smartphone fixes two of the main shortcomings of its predecessor by offering a larger 3.5″ LCD at the front and a beefier dual-core processor under the hood, so it’s certainly an interesting package.

Here at GSMArena, phones and tablets are our bread and butter, but our love for tech is by no means limited to them. So imagine our excitement when we got the opportunity to test a gadget which reads your thoughts and allows you to do cool things with it on your computer.
The gadget in question is called EPOC and is made by Emotiv. It’s a futuristic looking headset, which reads your brain activity via the scalp of your head and translates it into various actions. With that in mind, I was particularly excited with Professor Xavier and his powerful telepathic powers immediately popping into my head. Sadly, this isn’t the case… yet. Read more »
Meizu MX 4-core is company’s second phone we have the pleasure to review. It looks exactly like the dual-core Meizu MX, but adds two additional Cortex-A9 CPU cores and a more powerful GPU to bump the performance.
The Meizu MX 4-core runs on the so-called Flyme OS 1.0 which is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The customizations run a lot deeper than any other UI we’ve seen, but they cut off features instead of adding new. Read more »

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 is in our office for the second time, and this time it will stay for a full review. The Ace 2 is part of a new breed of dual-core phones – slotted above the single-cores but below last year’s flagship dual-cores. Another example of such phone would be the Sony Xperia U.
Actually, both of these phones are based on the ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8500 chipset, but the Galaxy Ace 2 has an unusual (for a dual-core) clock speed of 800MHz. On the upside, it has more RAM – 768MB – and a microSD card slot in addition to the 4GB of built-in memory. Read more »
The AT&T exclusive Sony Xperia ion was the talk of CES six months ago. Developed specifically with the lucrative US market in mind, the handset one ups its sibling, the Sony Xperia S on a couple of major occasions – it packs a bigger screen and offers expandable memory.

The AT&T exclusive Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate i577 is not the first Android smartphone with eco credentials from the Korean giant. However, the LTE packing, inconspicuously looking handset offers last year’s top shelf spec sheet to go with its low price . All in all, enough to get us curious.

After seeing the Nokia 808 PureView ace our blind test and comfortably beat even a Micro Four Thirds camera, many of you wanted to see how its 41MP sensor does against higher res cameras. We now suggest you take a comfortable seat and get ready to find the answer.
This time we used the full resolution mode on Nokia 808 PureView, which is the only one that shows the true capabilities of the monster sensor. We shot the same image with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, which is our workhorse DSLR, the Olympus E-PL2 large-sensor interchangeable lens camera, which was soundly trashed in the blind test and the Apple iPhone 4S, which should serve as a reference for the improvement the Nokia 808 brings to the smartphone world.
