  • HTC One M9 review; newer, but not much better

    By now, you’ve heard both sides of the argument. Either the HTC One M9 is a fantastic update of the One M8, or it’s iterative and boring. The camera is either ‘just fine for normal use’, or severely lacking. On paper, the

  • What’s in the box?! It’s a Moto E!

    Though we were expecting a Moto 360, what we got is potentially much better. Today, sitting on the porch waiting for me when I woke, was a box form Motorola. We all knew it was coming, but what was inside remained a bit of a

  • Galaxy Note Edge Review

    Among Samsung’s more ambitious devices, the Galaxy Note Edge is equal parts intrigue and confusion. The Note Edge occupies a space few other than Samsung dare to go in that it brings a new form factor that won’t appeal to the

  • Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 & Yoga Tablet 2 Pro review

    Lenovo has made a big impact on the Android world with their Yoga tablets. Most of the attention is paid to the design, where a cylindrical battery occupies a side (or bottom… or top) of the Yoga Tablet. Now that Lenovo has

  • HTC RE Camera review

    A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone

  • HTC Desire Eye Review: Welcome to the (selfie) machine

    Marketed as the “phone made for selfies”, the HTC Desire Eye forges a new path for HTC. It’s not all metal, and definitely not a flagship device. After leaning on the One series for two years, HTC is now looking to the

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: it’s a big deal

    Samsung has had a downturn recently, with earnings tanking quarterly and many observers wondering if their “time” had come. They may be down, but Samsung is not out. The Galaxy S5 and Note 4 carry the flags for Samsung’s

  • DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

    Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as

  • Moto X (2014) Review

    A natural upgrade to the 2013 version, the new Moto X definitely picks up where the former iteration left off. It’s a bit bigger, a touch bolder, and has a hint of class this time around — but does it do justice to the
