EVGA Tegra Note 7 by NVIDIA Review

A Tegra 4 tablet, with a decent stylus, and the promise of pure Android? NVIDIA's Tegra Note 7 platform, on sale from today, has plenty of Android aficionados talking, the $199 tablet arriving in the US with EVGA branding but really the brainchild of the chip manufacturer itself. So far Samsung has had the stylus market effectively in a stronghold, but NVIDIA wants to change all that using some Tegra 4 smarts.

Nexus 5 review

As had been rumored in the lead up, Google dropped the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat on Halloween. Thanks to the frequent rumors and leaks, the actual launch came with little in terms of surprise. But nonetheless, it was nice to get confirmation on the specs and pricing. The launch went smooth, especially as compared to the launch day issues Google had with the Nexus 4.

T-Mobile Alcatel ONE TOUCH Fierce review

T-Mobile announced the Alcatel ONE TOUCH Fierce back in late-September. At the time they offered some details in terms of the specs, pricing and release date. And well, judging from the specs and pricing, we knew this handset was going to fit squarely into the mid-range lineup. While we realize that may not sound all that exciting to some, there may be a something here with the Fierce. We have recently been carrying the ONE TOUCH Fierce and have been pleasantly surprised. Read on to check out the full review below.

Kyocera Hydro ELITE review

Kyocera has released more than a few waterproof phones over the past several months. In fact, we have taken a look at a few of them here at Android Community. There was the Kyocera Torque and Hydro Edge, both of which had decent specs, but appeared more of the focus was on the water-resistance. Well, we are now taking a look at the Kyocera Hydro Elite and as the 'elite' in the name would suggest, the specs are stepped up a bit. This one is still not what we would classify as high-end, but it should be a good option for anyone looking for a waterproof handset with Verizon Wireless. Read on to see how the handset stood up during our testing.

ZTE nubia 5 Houston Rockets Limited Edition review

We spent a bit of time with ZTE as they announced the partnership with the Houston Rockets this past weekend. That time included a pre-game sit down with some ZTE execs, and while they offered some interesting insight about the partnership, perhaps the more immediate news was the US release of the Grand S and nubia 5 smartphones. These were both made available for pre-order here in the US and should begin shipping shortly.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review

Many thought Samsung was a bit crazy when they introduced the original Galaxy Note, however they sold in decent numbers and that original was followed-up with the improved Galaxy Note II. Well, we once again have a new generation device in the Note lineup and this time around it has landed as the Galaxy Note 3 and with improvements in terms of the software and hardware. Touching on one item in particular, the loved-by-some and hated-by-others S Pen has stuck around with some notable improvements. With that being said, read on to see what we thought of the Galaxy Note 3 and the companion, Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Samsung Galaxy Gear review roundup

Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch at an event in early September. That announcement also included the Galaxy Note 3 and 2014 Edition Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, however the focus of the moment is the smartwatch. The Galaxy Gear had been available for pre-order with several of the US carriers, however given the $299 price point, we suspect some may have decided to hold back until they were able to read some reviews. So with that in mind, we are taking a look at the reviews that have surfaced around the web, beginning with the one recently posted from our sister site SlashGear.

Jabra Sport Wireless Plus headset review

Jabra announced the Sport Wireless+ headset a few weeks back. This set of headphones was arriving as the follow-up to the non-Plus model and as one would expect with a follow-up device, this one was announced with some improvements over the previous version. Some of the key highlights include battery life improvements and a fit clip. That being said, Jabra sent a pair of these over for review and as such, we have been enjoying running without having to worry about getting tangled up in wires.

Moto X Review

This week we're delivering an extended stay with the Moto X, a device presented by Motorola as the current sweet spot in the center of price, usability, and customizability. This device marks a point in the history of Android where what my colleague Chris Davies calls a "Context Ecosystem" has dawned, and in it an essential dismissal of winner-take-all hardware specifications in favor of an overall best-in-class user experience.
