VIDEO: 1080p Galaxy Nexus sample clip

A chap called Romain Guy, who’s one of the more public-facing of the many Android engineers, was given the task of creating a 1080p video clip to best show off the video recording powers of the forthcoming Galaxy Nexus. Here’s what he came up with, which is a longer version of the clip Google itself […]

Samsung Galaxy Ace review – web, app & game performance

We’ll continue our Galaxy Ace review today, despite being quite annoyed that yesterday’s installment is currently sitting there with only one “retweet” to its name. And that was generated automatically by the system when the post was uploaded. Anyway. Here’s how the Samsung Galaxy Ace performs as a web browser, plus we’ll answer the boring […]

CAMERA SAMPLES: Photos taken with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

Here’s something we’ve not done for a while. These photos were taken using the super sexy Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, which, as we’ve already seen, comes with a promising 8.1megapixel camera and a lens & sensor combo Sony Ericsson seems to be pretty proud of. So here’s what Sony Ericsson’s latest Android phone camera is […]

PHOTO SAMPLES: Pictures taken with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10

Here we are then – D-Day for mobile phone cameras. Sony Ericsson has squeezed a staggering 8megapixel digital sensor into its imminent X10 Android phone, and will be marketing it as THE phone for sociable people who don’t want to compromise on picture quality. So that’s the bluster. But what are the photos produced by […]

The Motorola CLIQ, which we call the DEXT in Europe and is available in the UK exclusively through Orange, is Motorola’s first Android phone, predating the DROID/Milestone.

PHOTO SAMPLES: Images taken with an Acer Liquid A1

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
