LG-Optimus-G

Has the hype around the Optimus G been artificially built or does LG really have something special to challenge the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 or HTC One X? While it’s a bit early to fully answer that question, some early benchmark results show the G as very capable of taking on pretty much anyone in terms of raw speed, mostly due to the featuring of a Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.

Galaxy Note 2

We can’t stop talking about the Note 2 and we really hope you’re as excited as we are about it, so we have some new interesting details on the 5.5-incher. This time around we’re dealing with a few benchmarks, which should give us a good idea of how will this big guy’s hardware behave in terms of raw speed.

New benchmarks have turned up on the GLBenchmark website, showing a phone known as the HTC PM63100. This 1.7Ghz, 1196 x 720, Android 4.0.4 smartphone could be the successor to the HTC One X.

The... device, which goes by the codename “Evitareul”, is likely a new iteration of the HTC One XL which has the codenamne “Evita.” The new phone has a 1.7Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, making it 20...

CNMO

Dual-SIM phones have been around since the early 2000s, so they aren’t really anything out of the ordinary these days. But when a dual-SIM device is being released by a major manufacturer... such as HTC (or Sony, for that matter), it’s certainly something to behold, at least for a while.

Below you’ll find some hands-on pictures of the dual-SIM HTC Desire V, as posted by CNET Asi...

xl_Samsung_GalaxyS3_3

The Samsung Galaxy S3 was officially announced two days back. By now, heart rates have begun to slowly go down and the world is catching its breathe again. Not helped by the overwhelming hype... in the build-up to the final release, there have been some mixed reactions to the device, with the biggest gripe being the lack of the (hoped for) 12MP camera. Despite the disappointment of some users...

Xolo_X900_Intel_Lava

We’ve been waiting for a while now to see Intel make its push into the mobile CPU market and challenge Nvidia and Qualcomm’s leading positions in the industry. While we didn’t expect much... from the Lava Xolo X900, the first smartphone to be powered by a Medfield processor, we might be in for a surprise.

The X900 has just been released in India, the only market where it is currently...

Sony Tegra 3

Sony has drawn criticism (including from us), for the lackluster device lineup that they’ve shown at MWC, a few weeks ago. I am talking about the conspicuous absence of a quad-core flagship,... something that even ZTE and Huawei, the new kids on the Western markets block, have managed to deliver, and, in the case of Huawei with stunning success.

And Sony doesn’t do any better in the t...

Tegra 3 vs AX5

TheVerge

Everyone knows the importance of benchmarks in the high-tech industry. With things like user experience or manufacturing quality, manufacturers, or, better said, marketers, can make... unsupported claims, without ever risking to be called out. But in the world of cores and RAM modules, benchmarks are, almost always, the final argument in any dispute. So, when the largest tech company...

Droid-3-ics

So the other night I got an alpha version of ICS installed on my Droid 3, and I have to say I am impressed. Hashcode has been hard at work since the release of the source code, and  had done... some amazing things. I am currently using it for my daily driver and if you don’t mind being a guinea pig  give it a shot yourself. For being an alpha it is very stable, and  many of the mai...

arm-vs-qualcomm-vs-ti

The first half of next year should get very interesting  for mobile devices. We’re expecting the Qualcomm S4, NVIDIA Kal-El, Texas Instruments OMAP 4470, and Samsung’s new Exynos... 4212 chips to arrive then. But, even if these devices will all arrive in the first half of 2012, we don’t know the exact dates–and that might make a difference.

For example, if one o...
