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.

Kyocera Hydro EDGE Smartphone Review

Kyocera began showing a pair of Hydro branded smartphones during CTIA. Those handsets included the Hydro XTRM and the Hydro EDGE and since that time in May, both handsets have come available with carriers. There has also been talk of a third device, the Hydro Elite coming to Verizon Wireless. But how about we put that rumor to the side because today we are taking a look at the Hydro EDGE.

Chromecast Review: Easy to setup and easy to use, but will it stick around

Google announced the Chromecast back on July 24th and unlike some other device announcements, these became available for purchase that same day. Given a curiosity about the new platform and the low price point and Chromecast seemed like an easy purchase for many. The Chromecast dongle availability quickly dwindled and sale prices jumped on sites such as eBay. The question we have though; Will the Chromecast excitement last or will this be another quickly passing fad.

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition Review

If you planned on picking up the Nexus 4 this summer but hesitated when you heard about Samsung's entry in to the newly minted "Google Play edition" lineup, you must have been thrown for a real loop when HTC brought the One on too. Here we've got not just one of the top hero machines on the market ready for "Nexus" glory, but two. Why would you choose one over the other? Let's have a peek.

HTC One Google Play edition Review

When you pick up a Google Play edition of the HTC One, you get all of the hardware features the original device is packed with, but backed up with an operating system that's almost entirely Google-made. This device is released alongside one other hero machine with a "Google Play edition" tag to make it unique, that being the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Here we have a peek at what it means to pay a premium (or a normal full price, depending on your perspective) for a machine that's already been one of Android Community's favorites this year, this time with a whole different experience on the inside.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review

Samsung has had a place in the mid-size tablet market for a while now, and their newest piece of machinery takes things to a new level. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is the happy medium between the company’s Galaxy Note 10.1 and the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II, and we first took a look at the new device during Mobile World Congress back in February. It comes with the infamous S Pen, as well as a quad-core processor to keep things humming along nicely. However, the tablet starts at $400, which is a bit expensive compared to other tablets in the same playing field, which makes us wonder what’s so special about this specific slate. Let’s take a peek.

LG Lucid 2 smartphone review

Verizon Wireless has had the LG Lucid available for some time now. Coming as a follow-up, the carrier has recently released the Lucid 2, which has landed in the mid-range lineup as a budget friendly device. The LG Lucid 2 brings 4G LTE connectivity along with a 4.3-inch display and relatively slim design. Perhaps nicer for some, the handset is available for free on a two-year agreement and has a wide variety of additional accessories. With that being said, we have recently spent some time with the handset and have a bit to say about the device -- so, read on to see if this is one you should consider or simply ignore.

Android Community Reviews Rundown 2012

This year Android saw huge product release numbers across the board.

Here at Android Community we wanted to wrap up a quick post highlighting some of our top smartphone, tablet, and app reviews from 2012.

Motorola Electrify M Review (US Cellular)

The Motorola Electrify M recently landed at US Cellular, and with it we're getting a very strong feeling of deja vu. Despite the new name, we've seen this phone before, as its nearly identical twin – the DROID RAZR M – is currently gracing Verizon's shelves. The DROID RAZR M was a pretty solid handset, though it was somewhat overshadowed by the release of the DROID RAZR HD and the RAZR MAXX HD. Can Motorola keep the quality train rolling with the Electrify M? Read on to find out.

Sonic Jump Game Review

I've been a Sonic fan almost as long as I've been alive. The original Sonic the Hedgehog was the first game I ever played at the ripe old age of five, and since then, there have been a lot of ups and downs. Thankfully, the series seems to be on the upswing lately, with titles like Sonic Generations, Sonic Colors, and Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed doing surprisingly well with critics and fans alike. Sonic's latest appearance is in Sonic Jump, a new vertical platformer that launched last week on Android. Does this new title keep Sega's string of good Sonic releases going? Do we dare hope?
