Motorola Droid 2 Review

Introduction When the second generation of a product is unveiled, you expect major upgrades from the first model. Motorola takes a different approach with the Droid 2, the follow-up to last year’s ground-breaking Droid, both from Verizon. Rather than a fanboy’s dream update, Droid 2 is barely a minor shift. If we were cynical, we’d say Droid 2 is Motorola’s…

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Review

The original Sidekick was a revolutionary phone when it debuted back in 2002. Before all these Android phones and all this touchscreen nonsense, the Sidekick helped usher a class of phone that was sold not because it made good calls, but because it made texting easier. Today, texting isn’t our number one concern, but there’s still a place for a…

Motorola Droid Razr M Review

Motorola and Verizon couldn’t be closer. Motorola helped establish Verizon’s Android lineage with the original slide-out Droid back in 2009, and the carrier and phone maker have been bedfellows ever since. Combine the Droid name with Motorola’s rejuvenated obsession with stamping the name “Razr” on all of its phones, and you can mostly figure out why this phone is called…

BlackBerry Z10 Review

In its 2013 Superbowl spot, BlackBerry went with a whimsical ad that supposedly showed off what the BlackBerry Z10 can’t do because 30 seconds is too short a time to show you what it can do. Whether or not this is a misstep is up for marketing professionals to debate. The problem for consumers is that it makes the Z10…

Motorola Droid 4 Review

Do you remember the Droid 3? It came out last July, bringing a fine update to the Droid line in almost every way. It had a dual-core processor, a slick new design, new software, and a new five-row keyboard. Unfortunately, Motorola underestimated the importance of one essential feature: 4G LTE. Without it, the Droid 3 quickly slid to the back…

LG Thrill 4G Review

The LG Thrill 4G has been on AT&T shelves since early summer, when it arrived with one thing that almost no other phone has: glasses-free 3D. Yes, like the Nintendo 3DS, this phone can display 3D images without any need for those pesky glasses. Although the screen turns out to be a bit of a gimmick, a dual-core processor and…

Motorola Droid Razr HD Review

Motorola and Google recently completed their merger, but before their wedding day both companies got close and started working together. The result is the second generation Droid Razr line. We’ve already seen the budget baby of the group, the Razr M. Now it’s big brother Droid Razr HD’s turn. This Razr sports a large 4.7-inch display but a svelte body,…

Motorola Atrix 4G Review

Convergence is everywhere these days – be it game consoles that stream Netflix movies, GPS devices that double as speakerphones and televisions with Web browsers – but the Atrix 4G smartphone takes this concept to the next level. Specifically, with the aid of a couple of optional accessories, this AT&T exclusive from Motorola ($199.99 on 2-year term) can transform into…

HTC Inspire 4G Review

HTC was the first smartphone manufacturer to work with Google, and its experience shows. In the past three years, the company has grown from being a bit player in the small smartphone space to a leading phone manufacturer with close to 10 percent of the market. A dedication to the user experience may be the reason why. The HTC Inspire…

Motorola Droid X2 Review

In almost every respect, Motorola’s Droid X2 a better phone than the Droid X, which we gave high marks to one year ago. It has double the processing power, a better camera, and a higher resolution qHD display. However, the world of Android changes quickly. What is impressive one day is out of date the next. Motorola’s Droid has some…
