Sony Xperia U Review

Sony released a scattershot of Xperia phones last year, and has decided to take a more measured approach this year, unveiling the NXT series at MWC 2012. That included the Xperia S and Xperia P, but today we’ll be reviewing the Xperia U, the smallest and cheapest of the three. That doesn’t mean it’s lacking in specs, though: a dual-core 1Ghz processor lies at the beating heart of the phone, and it’s staggering to think we’ve reached a point where a budget handset can include such a chip. How does it all stack up, though?

It's little things like the low price, and Google Wallet that makes life easier with LG.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) Review

Available starting today is the all new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch tablet. Thanks to Samsung we've got it right here to put through the paces and check out the newly refined design and speaker grill placements. It appears Samsung is taking two approaches on tablets. One being a more budget-friendly Tab like the Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch and the 10 we have today, and then their top end will be the quad-core Galaxy Note 10.1 coming this summer. This new slate is clearly a media consumption device, and it works great. Read on for our full review.

Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on [Video]

Expectations are high for the Samsung Galaxy S III, and from our hands-on playtime with the new Android flagship we've a feeling users will be pleased. Samsung may not have lived up to the pre-launch hype, but it has delivered a phone that improves on all areas of its predecessor: better screen, faster processor and more usable camera.

AT&T HTC One X Review

The HTC One X for AT&T is a different beast from the original (international) release in two rather important ways. First it's got a completely different processor, made by Qualcomm instead of NVIDIA, and second here it's carried by AT&T on a 2-year contract in the USA. Will this non-international release stir up the same positive reactions we had to the first release of this super hero phone, or are the two changes we're seeing here in software and hardware going to push this device in the wrong direction entirely?

Scalado Album Review

The additions to the generic Android Gallery in Ice Cream Sandwich are pretty great, but of course, they don't do much for the 90+% of user which don't have access to Android 4.0. If you're a shutterbug who wants better experience that the unfortunately slow 3D album from Android 2.3 or whatever replacement your manufacturer has provided, have a gander at Scalado Album, which goes for 99¢ in the Google Play Store. It's fast, easy to navigate, and a has a few unique features that even the ICS gallery could use.
