The Nokia Lumia 928 brought something we hadn’t seen in a while – xenon flash – but it’s a Verizon exclusive, others are getting the thinner, but LED flash only Lumia 925. As it turns out, however, you can get the Lumia 928 working on a GSM network too.
Reddit user volvoshine is reporting that a Lumia 928 worked on AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks after adding the proper access points. That works because Verizon’s phones come with unlocked GSM connectivity for roaming purposes, but there are a few caveats. Read more »

The HTC Droid DNA leads the charge of phones with super-sharp screens into the west – it has 5″ 1080p display with an amazing pixel density of 440ppi (the screen looked great when we handled the phone).
The demanding resolution is taken care by the powerful Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a quad-core Krait processor and the new Adreno 320, which is the best an Android phone can get at the moment. But is the 2,020mAh battery too small? Read more »
In our review of the HTC Evo 4G LTE, we noted that the Sprint Wireless exclusive smartphone one ups its AT&T relative – the HTC One X, on a couple of instances. The bigger, 2000 mAh battery is one of the Evo features, which is certain to make the owners of its polycarbonate bodied relative jealous.
We already put the HTC One X for AT&T through its paces in our battery test, and came quite impressed with what we saw. Naturally, the expectations towards the Evo ran even higher, given its larger battery. Hit the break to find out how it did. Read more »

Like its predecessors, the smartphone aims to tick all the boxes in term of both hardware and software features. The latest EVO is also bound to take the role of a flagship for Sprint’s brand new and quickly developing LTE network.

We did get a chance to spend some quality time with the HTC EVO 4G LTE during its announcement in New York City yesterday, so here go some of our initial impressions. As you probably know already, the Sprint Wireless’s LTE flagship is closely related to the HTC One X for AT&T.

The slide-out QWERTY sporting Motorola Droid 4 is one of the fastest product sequels I’ve seen in quite some time. The Android smartphone hit the shelves at Verizon Wireless only six months after its predecessor, Motorola Droid 3 arrived, thus making me curious about the changes it has brought with it.
Speaking about changes in the newcomer, they are actually quite a few. Read more »
The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX looks so familiar, you can easily mistake it for its slimmer brother from certain angles. Aside its massive built-in battery and a change in the internal memory capacity, the newcomer in Verizon’s LTE lineup is identical to the DROID RAZR, which broke cover in November last year.
Quite frankly, I never thought that battery capacity will be the star feature in a high end Android smartphone, but, given my experience with a number of top notch devices from the past year, it makes perfect sense. After all, I witnessed several Android top dogs with massive spec sheets display battery performance, which puts their daily usability in question, thus forcing me to walk around with a charger in my pocket. The DROID RAZR MAXX is clearly aimed at this painful issue. Read more »

After running our eyes over RIM’s scheduled plans for 2012, the word at the front of our minds was ‘boring’.
Probably not what the Canadian smartphone maker was hoping for, but there were one or two exceptions which caught our eye, one of which could well be a CDMA variant of RIM’s latest Porsche designed Berry’. Read more »
Over the past year or so, we witnessed the Android smartphones more than double their processing power and graphic performance, thus reaching levels, almost comparable with entry level personal computers. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the battery life of the devices we encountered. Quite often, we witnessed top shelf Android handsets display battery performance which almost questions their practicality.
Meet the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, people. An Android smartphone, designed specifically with battery performance in mind. In a rather impressive feat of engineering, the guys over at Motorola have managed to stuff a battery big enough to power a laptop, while sticking closely to the impressive waistline of the original Droid RAZR.
In terms of specs, the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is mostly identical to its slimmer sibling. Read more »
LG is bringing their latest super droid to Verizon under the name Spectrum, a version of the South Korean Optimus LTE and the LG Nitro HD for AT&T. That means the Spectrum packs a 4.5″ AH-IPS LCD display of 720p resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and LTE connectivity.
Design-wise, the LG Spectrum is nearly identical to Optimus LTE LU6200, whereas AT&T’s version takes after Optimus LTE SU640. We noticed that the back has changed though – it’s now glossy and gets smudged all over with fingerprints very quickly. Read more »
