ThinkSound ms01 Monitor Series Earbuds Review

Here at Android Community, we go through a lot of earbuds. Almost every phone we receive for review has its own companion pair (we're practically swimming in Samsung buds) but all of them have one thing in common: they're kinda cheap. If you've been looking to upgrade your sound with easily portable earbuds, ThinkSound's series of high-end options have been popular for a while now. The company sent us a pair to review, and after using them at CES, we were downright floored by the quality.

Logitech Z515 Bluetooth Speaker Review

One of the most consistent complaints against phones of all types, including Android superphones favored by most of our readers, is that they have to make due with tiny, weak speakers. That's not anyone's fault, really - devices that fit in your pocket with enough technology to make Ray Kurzweil drool have to make some sacrifices. But  to rectify this situation, especially when you're traveling or trying to share music with lots of people, an external speaker of some kind is almost a necessity. Enter Logitech's Z515, a portable battery-powered Bluetooth speaker that intends to bring big sound in a small and easy-to-move package.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (LTE) Review

Well, it's finally here. Google's official developer phone for Ice Cream Sandwich has reached American shores with Verizon as its official launch partner, for better or worse. Like the two Nexus phones before it, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will set the bar for Android smartphones over the next year. The only question is, how high will that bar be?

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

The Motorola DROID XYBOARD, known outside the world of baffling product marketing as the XOOM 2, has a lot riding on it. When the XOOM debuted on Verizon back in February, it was the only game in town as far as Honeycomb tablets were concerned. Now consumers have a choice of dozens of tablets, with or without wireless service, across a wide variety of form factors and prices. Can the updated Motorola tablet stand above the madding crows of 10-inch Android competitors?

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Earlier this year Motorola's first tablet the XOOM launched as the first Honeycomb tablet and had plenty of promise. Sadly the hefty size and bloated Verizon 3G data pricing didn't help its cause. We now have the next-gen Xoom happily named the DROID XYBOARD tablets to see what they learned from their first attempt at a tablet. The XYBOARD has been hanging out with our team and a few Galaxy Nexus smartphones this week and below you'll find our thoughts on this 8.2" Honeycomb device.

ASUS Transformer Prime Review

Say hello to the next generation of Android tablets -- that would be quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 tablets to be exact. With 2011 dominated by the Tegra 2 we expect 2012 to be similar. Ahead of the pack comes ASUS with the worlds first quad-core slate, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Being similar to many other tablets around can the Prime boost ahead of the pack and make a name for itself, or will it just be another in the flood of Android tablets? With good looks, a fancy radial spun aluminum design and that ultra-powerful processor we think it will hold its own just fine. Read on below for all the details, video, and pictures you can handle.

LG Nitro HD Review

As AT&T's third 4G LTE smartphone, the LG Nitro HD has a lot riding on it. As the carrier's very first phone with a 720p screen (and the nation's second), it's got a lot more. In other markets, this phone is being sold by variations on the theme of the LG Optimus LTE. Is LG's newest flagship phone worth your time, and more importantly, your money? Read on to find out.

Samsung DoubleTime Review

The flexibility of Android and the continuing march of mobile technology progress are making Android available on hardware and price points that would have seemed impossible just a couple of years ago. The latest phone to skirt the line between smartphones and featurephones is the Samsung DoubleTime, a QWERTY phone with a novel hinged and double-screen design. For $50 on a new two-year contract it's definitely on the low end of AT&T's smartphone lineup, but can it stand up on its own? Let's find out.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

It seems that lately Samsung has been trying to cover all levels of the smartphone market, and with most carriers too. With the Samsung Captivate Glide they've done just that over on AT&T. Along with the Doubletime and a few other phones they have the entire range covered. Today we'll be showing you the mid to higher end of that spectrum with the Captivate Glide and its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and dual-core processor. It might not be the biggest or the best but it will put up a good fight, that is for sure.
