TmoNews Reviews The myCharge Peak 6000 Rechargeable Battery Bank

I don’t generally do accessory reviews around these parts, but I’m thinking about changing that and I’m starting with something I’ve grown to love over the past few weeks, the myCharge Peak 6000. As a Floridian, power, battery life and more power and battery life are always something I think about when summer rolls around. It’s been six years since we’ve had a major hurricane, but I’ve learned my lesson and even this … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The Meizu MX, Pentaband Unlocked Glory

Editors Note: This isn’t a typical review for TmoNews as this isn’t a T-Mobile branded device. However, given T-Mobile’s current refarming project and the notion that we’ll seen be able to use a multitude of unlocked and non-T-Mobile phones on the network, I’m going to step up some reviews of devices that will work on T-Mobile’s network.  When it comes to T-Mobile, one of the many things I love about the Magenta network … [read full article]

TmoNews Takes A Look At The Galaxy Note

Writing about the Galaxy Note is a tricky ordeal. It’s not so much the device itself, given that the Note has been around for a while. It feels like we already had an idea what to expect, especially those of you who have long been tracking a T-Mobile launch, you likely already know everything to know about the 5.3″ Samsung phone/tablet/phablet. Identical to its AT&T counterpart, the largest difference (outside of the crazy … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The Samsung Galaxy S III

With full disclosure in mind, I’ve had the Galaxy S III in my possession since June 20th, a day before it “launched” on T-Mobile’s network. After some traveling and busy work thanks to keeping tabs on all the Google I/O news, I’m finally reading to put thoughts to paper and bring a comprehensive review of Samsung’s flagship handset. There was plenty of excitement leading up to the Galaxy S III launch, thanks in … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The HTC One S

There is little question that HTC has been criticized for releasing too many phones that all seemed to be too much like each other. HTC was putting out the newest and best phone once a month, every month, for as long as we can remember. Arguably, these “superphones” helped launch Android into the stratosphere but, as a company, HTC was doing itself more harm than good. As HTC recognized a change in direction … [read full article]

HTC Radar 4G, A TmoNews Review

It’s review time again, and this time I got my hands on some new hardware.  Now, it doesn’t have Android (OH NO!) so it may not be on many of your lists, but it really should be considered.  T-Mobile made the mistake of sending me a Radar 4G to play with and I may, just may, keep it (I’m totally kidding T-Mobile, seriously).  Read on and see how it stacks up! Software I’ve … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The T-Mobile Galaxy S II

Quick Note: I’ve published this review because I want to get out there but I’ve done so without a 1080p video sample which isn’t cooperating on the upload to YouTube. I’ll have the video added in tomorrow. Enjoy the review! I was incredibly excited to get my hands on a Samsung Galaxy S II review unit from Samsung and doubly excited to test out T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ network in South Florida. The … [read full article]

TmoNews Reviews The Sidekick 4G

When I received the Sidekick 4G in the mail from T-Mobile, I wondered what T-Mobile hoped to accomplish with the Sidekick line. Several years ago, when the news originally broke that the Sidekick line was being killed off, existing users and ardent supporters of the fabled Sidekick line were understandably upset. The data outage that plagued the Sidekick brand back in October of 2009 was the straw that broke the camel’s back. There … [read full article]
