Galaxy Note II is finally arriving for everyone here in the US on all major carriers. It's been available from T-Mobile for about a month, AT&T started shipping them to customers a few weeks ago, and Verizon confirmed this morning that their Note II hits shelves tomorrow. Now that the major US carriers all have this 5.5-inch smartphone, lets take a look at Samsung's official case.
Verizon for $99, seems to be one of those devices. It’s based off the LG Optimus LTE II that was released in Korea earlier this year. LG and Verizon made a few changes to the design and specs, and ended up spitting out the Spectrum 2 to US users. The phone sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip, 1GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch 720p HD IPS display, and even NFC and wireless charging capabilities -- not a bad combination of features, but we have to see if the handset can use them advantageously. Let’s find out what this thing is capable of.
DROID DNA, and it shows. This Verizon exclusive enters a new space for smartphones here in the US. That space being full 1080p HD right in the palm of your hand. That isn't all either, they've also added a top-tier quad-core processor and the latest version of Android all to this new flagship smartphone. Can the 5-inch 1080p HD HTC DROID DNA deliver? Read on to find out.
Samsung Galaxy Camera as you'll be picking it up from your local AT&T retailer soon, and very soon. As it turns out, this device is essentially the same model you'll be getting if you're purchasing the device internationally - innards and all. there aren't even any AT&T logos on the device, as it were, with this machine appearing in your hands fully Samsung-friendly. What we're going to do in the review below is take a unique look at this device as it is brand new to the Android universe - less on the smartphone end of things (since it's not a smartphone, mind you), and a lot more on the photography angle.
Pantech has never been a major leader in the Android handset business, they’ve been a relatively good choice when it comes to budget devices. The company’s newest smartphone, the Flex, is Pantech’s first attempt at making a real contender while still keeping the price on the down-low. It’s available now on AT&T’s network for just $20 after signing a two-year contract. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a large 4.3-inch display -- all of which are crucial ingredients to a powerhouse device. However, since specs aren’t everything, we have to dig deeper into the Pantech Flex to see if it can compete with the likes of HTC, Nokia, or even Samsung. Let’s see how it fares.
Nexus 4, and they released their new flagship device, the Optimus G, just recently on AT&T. However, LG isn't just about the high-end game. They came out with a set of mid-range Optimus devices throughout the summer, and their latest one is the Optimus L9, which was released through T-Mobile on Halloween. We ended up getting our hands on one and decided to run it through its paces to see if it's worthy of the $79.99 price tag. Let's see how it fared.
Nexus 4, a device manufactured by LG with software pure vanilla Android - a collaboration creating yet another true member of the Nexus family. This device is made to bring on the next version of Android, that being 4.2 Jelly Bean (the second iteration of the software still code-named Jelly Bean) complete with the updates you see in our full update guide. The body of this device rather similar to that of the LG Optimus G, complete with the same display, camera technology, and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5Ghz processor under the hood.
Samsung and Google. The tablet that has outdone Apple and their "Retina" displays, the tablet that packs the latest version of Android, and the tablet with the absolute highest resolution to date -- coming in at 2560x1600. This is true HD! The Samsung-made Google Nexus 10 is up on our review table, and it's glorious. The screen is stunning, the processor is blazing fast, and of course we have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean powering this slate. Can this be the best tablet around just as the Nexus 7 has? Read on to see our full thoughts and tons of pictures.
Samsung Galaxy Note II. The smartphone needs no introduction as the newest sibling to the device that started the "phablet" trend. Samsung's Note is back and better than ever with an improved, thinner, more powerful design for round two. The original Galaxy Note was odd and large to say the least but this time around Samsung refined the entire experience. Read on to see our thoughts on the new Note II.
Motorola and Verizon's DROID RAZR was a pretty big hit last year, and today they are back with the evolution of their flagship device with the DROID RAZR HD. Today the 4.7-inch touting DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD are both available in stores as we speak. To help you make up your mind on if this is the right phone for you read on for our full review.
