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.

HTC Rezound Review

The HTC Rezound is not the nicest HTC device to have been released thus far to the market here in the USA, but it certainly does have all the features that make it one of the best smartphones on Verizon, and certainly one of the top two LTE devices today. In the following review I'm going to prove to you why if you're in the market for an HTC LTE device, this is your very best choice, that if you're in the market for the best HTC device on the market, you'd better go with the Sensation, and finally why if you want the most iconic, memorable, and well supported devices on Verizon you may well be better off going with the DROID RAZR.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Review

Say hello to the newest member of the Samsung Galaxy Tab family, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It's here to replace its little brother the original Galaxy Tab with a few upgrades and improvements, not to mention a dual-core processor and Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Today we have the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus on the AC review bench and will be giving its features and apps a quick look, not to mention the usual benchmarks and tons of beautiful pictures. All that and more is below so don't go anywhere just yet.

Philips Fidelio AS851 Docking Speaker for Android Review

Android users have a virtually unlimited choice when it comes to smartphone hardware, and it's one of the most important advantages of the platform. Unfortunately a wide variety of hardware inexorably means a smaller selection of accessories, especially ones that work with all models. Nowhere is this more evident than in the dock/speaker department. Whereas you can't find a $20 alarm clock without an iPod dock, models that support Android are few and far between. Philips seems to be the only company that's interested in this particular segment, and for that, we're eternally grateful. They sent us the top-of-the-line Fidelio AS851 speaker dock, designed specifically to work with Android smartphones, for review.

T-Mobile Springboard Review

You've got a lot of choice when looking for a new Android tablet, but the T-Mobile Springboard is something novel. For just $179 (after a mail-in rebate and on contract, natch) you get a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet with a 720p screen and a dual-core processor. That makes the Springboard one of the smallest tablets around, and assuming you're down with T-Mobile's mobile data fees, one of the cheapest as well. The Springboard will be available starting on November 16th.

DROID RAZR Accessories Review

The following is a look at a collection of accessories made to compliment the full review of the DROID RAZR also available for your perusal here on Android Community today. The accessories we've got our hands on include the HD Dock, P893 Universal Power Pack, Adapter for webtop, VGA Travel Adapter, and Vehicle Navigation dock. We'll take a brief look at each of these accessories and let you know if they're worth picking up when you pick up your DROID RAZR from Verizon - gotta catch em all!

DROID RAZR Review

This month will mark the release of both Motorola and Verizon's new flagship device, the DROID RAZR, and what we've got here is a full review of this device, complete with the whole explosive handful of features and accessories. What we're dealing with here is a 1.2GHz OMAP4 Texas Instruments dual-core processor wielding 4G LTE monster that not only employs the thinnest chassis on a 4G device today, but also reinforces itself with near-unbreakable hardware like a Kevlar back, metal construction on the insides, and a Gorilla Glass panel on the front! Will the 4.3-inch qHD 540 x 960 Super AMOLED Advanced display be the final KO in what at first glance appears to be a true knockout device? Let's have a look!

HTC Vivid Review

The HTC Vivid has the distinction of being one of the first phones to take advantage of AT&T's fledgeling LTE network, a feature it shares with its launch partner the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. But the Vivid isn't relying on a single bullet point to make its purchase case - the dual-core Gingerbread phone has some high-end specs and a huge 4.5-inch qHD screen. Does the high-end featureset and a fancy new network connection make the Vivid a worthy buy?

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review [Video]

Any casual tech observer knows that Android power more than just phones, like tablets, netbooks, and on occasion actual androids. But Samsung's Galaxy Player 5.0 seems like a gadget in search of a problem to solve. Ostensibly a competitor to the iPod Touch, albeit one that's built at a plus-sized scale, this Wifi-only media player may be music to the ears of those who want a huge screen and no phone contract (or, indeed, a phone at all) to worry about.
