Galaxy S2 Plus

It’s definitely not safe to put all your eggs in one basket in today’s tech world, but Samsung’s basket count is getting a bit out of hand. We know that Sammy’s increasing Android popularity is due to the fact that the company has devices for all tastes, needs and budgets, but the already thin lines between low-end, mid-range and high-end are just about becoming invisible.

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...
