HTC ONE X Review

2011 was not HTC's year. Despite what appeared to be a strong start at Mobile World Congress in February 2011, by the tail-end of the year HTC had seen its device sales slump and rivals like Samsung steal its innovation crown, no small shock for the company which had long been known as the Android backbone. 2012, then, sees HTC become the challenger again, and the HTC One X is the powerhouse of that attack. Packing a quadcore Tegra 3 chipset in European form, it's a big, fast answer to those who said HTC had let specifications slip. Question is, does the One X do enough to leave HTC in a solid position ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5?

Tenqa REMXD Bluetooth Headphones Review

Bluetooth headphones have not become the ubiquitous accessories that I hoped they would years ago. A lot of that's due to the shortcomings of the standard itself, but it's got more to due with the fact that the price has remained high. That trend is starting to reverse, however, and the new Tenqa REMXD are just a little pricier than standard earbuds at $39.99. At an impulse-buy price, they're hard to resist, so we asked Tenqa for a pair to review.

Sony Tablet P Review

Variety is the spice of life, and in the mobile world this tenet is demonstrated best with Android hardware. When it comes to variety, Android phones and tablets beat all comers. So it was with some anticipation that I received Sony's Tablet P, a singular device that sets out to put an impressively-sized screen in a small body that's made possible by a folding hinged design, achieving more portability than anything in its class. But a novel idea doesn't necessarily make a good product, so I put it through Android Community's regular review regimen. Does the Tablet P stack up to the competition? Read on to find out.

Angry Birds Space review

It's finally here: the avian outer space destruction simulation that's been on the minds of Bird-brains for weeks. Angry Birds Space represents the first major revision to Rovio's familiar formula since the game launched - unlike the various Seasons themed updates (with the occasional extra bird thrown in) Angry Birds Space shakes up the equation with physics-based levels and puzzles, forcing players to account for areas of low, zero and radial gravity in order to smash those thieving pigs. Does Space live up to its world-conquering predecessor? Read on to find out.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review – A midrange powerhouse

T-Mobile is set to unleash the new Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G tomorrow, March 21st in select locations, then nationwide on the 27th. This device comes to consumers with a upper-middle-class price, and the same can be said about its performance during daily use. This isn't the best on the market, but where are its shortcomings and is there anything it doesn't do well. That is the question most should have. Read on for our full review and thoughts.

Samsung Rugby Smart Review

We in the tech media industry tend to focus on the ultra-high end, because honestly, it's what people want to read about. But considering Android's more democratic applications, at Android Community we also like to focus on a wider range of phones for those who either don't want, don't need or can't afford flagship devices. If you find yourself among this company and AT&T is your carrier of choice, you'd do well to investigate the Samsung Rugby Smart, a 3.7-inch Gingerbread phone with basic features and a ruggedized exterior.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Verizon LTE Review

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE is the newest member of the ever-growing range of Samsung tablets and fits in between all the other sizes they've released as of late. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE has a dual-core processor and one of the best displays we've seen on a tablet -- and has us very impressed. Read on for our full thoughts and plenty of pictures.

Samsung Galaxy Note Review [AT&T]

Many questions come to mind with the Galaxy Note. Is it too big? Is the stylus S-Pen necessary? Is the screen real estate worth the loss of portability and more. I've been using it for about a week and have some thoughts regarding these questions. With a huge and vibrant 5.3" Super AMOLED HD display and a dual-core processor this thing should be amazing -- and it is. The biggest concern for many is probably the screen size so we'll dive into that and more with our full review below.

Being the first DROID slider with all the essential main ingredients: dual-core, 4G LTE, and obviously a slide-out QWERTY hardware keyboard can this rule them all? Or will it just be another DROID like the rest? If you love a hardware keyboard or are a die-hard fan of the original DROID you'll want to stay tuned for the verdict.
