AT&T HTC One X+ and One VX incoming

AT&T has announced two new HTC Android smartphones headed to its network, the HTC One X+ revealed today, and the HTC One VX.

HTC One X+ flagship revealed: Hands-on

Six months is a long time as a flagship, and so HTC's top-end device goes in for a fettle and comes out as the HTC One X+, replete with a new processor and bigger battery. Now running NVIDIA's 1.7GHz Tegra 3 AP37 quadcore - for up to a 67-percent performance boost, HTC claims - and packing a 2,100 mAh battery for up to 6hrs more talktime, the One X+ keeps the aesthetic of its predecessor (which will, in fact, stay on sale alongside it as a more affordable option) but dresses it in a matte black finish with red touches and a new Beats Audio logo.

LG demos Optimus G multitasking and more

LG isn't delivering pure Android with the Optimus G, but the company still thinks you'll like the tweaks it has made. With the quadcore Snapdragon S4 Pro smartphone not expected to hit shelves until Q4, however, LG has figured that the best way to show you just why you'll like the Optimus G is in video form.

Motorola RAZR i: Hands-on with the 2GHz Intel Android phone

Motorola has outed its latest Android smartphone, and while the RAZR i may have a slick edge-to-edge Super AMOLED display, it's the Intel Atom processor inside that's most interesting.  Running a 2GHz single-core CPU with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM (5GB user-available, plus a microSD slot), the RAZR i will launch with 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but is, Motorola insists, Jelly Bean upgradeable eventually.
