LG G3 review – 2014′s phone to beat?

With Samsung pretty much cleaning up on the Android market, you could be forgiven for ignoring its Korean competitor up until last year. The LG G2 turned heads. Its odd, rear-placed power and volume buttons as well as its super-slim bezels made it something of a milestone for LG. And then the ridiculously huge, curved G Flex ensured no one could ignore the company again. The big question for 2014 was whether or … [read full article]

Coocoo Planet review

If I was to sum up the essence of Coocoo Planet in a phrase, it’d be: the love child of Tamagotchi, Candy Crush and the Sims. It’s an addictive game where you not only have to build worlds, but also care for individual characters. Dubbed Coocoomons, these characters – and their world – are designed to resemble sweet, sugary treats. Upon opening the game up, you’re immediately greeted by a friendly in-game host … [read full article]

HTC One M8 review – The best Android phone just got better

With 2013′s HTC One, the Taiwanese manufacturer set the standard for Android device hardware manufacturing and design. Its aluminum unibody paired with awesome components and performance made it last year’s best smartphone (in the eyes of many). This year, it’s back with a new shape, better performance, better hardware design and a weird camera set-up. But can it hold a light to its predecessor? Absolutely. It launches in Magenta flavor on April 11, … [read full article]

Moto G, simply the best phone under $200 [Review]

I don’t think any company’s released a more talked-about handset under $200 than Motorola with its Moto G. And for good reason. It’s the first time anyone’s really brought a great experience, and decent spec-list to a phone in that price range. I got one just over a week back and have grown to like it a lot, although it does have its problems. Design The Moto G’s design should be applauded. It feels fantastic in hand. … [read full article]

Motorola Moto G – Unboxing and First Impressions [Video]

Today was the day I finally managed to snag one. Let’s get this out the way first: This phone isn’t meant to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S4, HTC One or even the Nexus 5. Just a quick glance down the spec … [read full article]

Moto X Review: Motorola’s First Smartphone On T-Mobile In Years

For a long time I’ve wanted to get my hands on an Android smartphone that is the right combination of size and specs. Many might (and will) argue that the Moto X doesn’t hold up on paper to the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One, but in my real-world experience it’s just as good. It remains very unfortunate that, for whatever reason, T-Mobile has decided not to offer, at least initially, the … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The Nokia Lumia 810, How Does It Stack up?

Windows Phone 8 is an interesting piece of technology for me as it is a system I want to love, try to love and end up just indifferent about. As I’ve had both the Windows Phone 8X and Lumia 810 hanging around my desk, I’ve come to appreciate both Nokia’s WP8 specific apps and the appearance of the Windows Phone 8X. The problem is I just couldn’t use either as a … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The Samsung Galaxy Note II

The Galaxy Note II is a hard phone to discuss without first trying to make sense of whether it’s a phone, a tablet or something else entirely. I’ve jokingly called the original Galaxy Note and now the Galaxy Note II a “phablet” and I stand by that term. It’s easy to see that the Galaxy Note II is a vastly different animal than its predecessor. With more power under the hood, the … [read full article]
