                iPhone X Nov. 2017 iPhone X review
                iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Sept. 2017 iPhone 8 and 8 Plus review
                iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus The changes for Apple's flagship 4.7" and 5.5" smartphones are mostly inside this year. On the outside we have new antenna lines, a solid state home button and two new colors: black and jet black. Inside there's the class-leading Apple A10 Fusion quad core CPU, more storage, improved front and rear cameras, IP67 water resistance. The iPhone 7 Plus gets two 12MP rear cameras, one with standard wide view and one telephoto. Both run iOS 10. Sept. 2016 iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus review
                iPhone SE This is Apple's best attempt at an affordable iPhone. It truly is much less expensive than the flagship iPhone 6s, but it has the same CPU, RAM and excellent rear camera as the more expensive model. The iPhone SE has the body of the iPhone 5s-- that Leica inspired one that's still my personal favorite iPhone design. It's available in 4 colors and it has a 4" Retina IPS display. Obviously, it's pretty pocket-friendly and it's also wallet friendly with a starting price of $399. April 2016 iPhone SE review
                iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus For an "s" year, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus offer significant improvements over the last generation of this extremely popular phone family. The size and look remain the same, though there's a new rose gold color that blushes pink. The 4.7" iPhone 6s and 5.5" iPhone 6s Plus sport newer and significantly faster Apple A9 CPUs with double the RAM for a nice performance boost. Both front and rear cameras are much higher resolution and Apple's finally joined the 4K video recording bandwagon. The casing is more rigid and the Touch ID fingerprint scanner recognizes your fingerprint nearly instantaneously. Lastly there's 3D Touch for new interactions with the touch screen. Not bad for an off cycle year. Editor's Choice 2015 Sept. 2015 iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus review
                iPhone 6 Plus It's Apple's first phablet, or really big smartphone if you hate that label. The iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5" full HD IPS display that's one of the best, long battery life, a crazy slim design and as ever an attractive unibody aluminum design. The phone runs iOS 8 on Apple's dual core, 64 bit A8 processor with multi-core graphics and 1 gig of RAM. You can get it with up to 128 gigs of storage and in your choice of silver, space gray or gold. Is it a handful? Yes it is. Is it wonderful for watching videos and playing games? You bet! Editor's Choice 2014 Sept. 2014 iPhone 6 Plus review
                iPhone 6 Apple's mainstream phone is larger now at 4.7", but it's still hand and pocket friendly. The IPS display is stunningly colorful and sharp with great viewing angles, and the newest iPhone is fast thanks to the Apple A8 dual core 64 bit CPU. The iPhone 6 has an aluminum body finished in silver, space gray or gold, and it's available with 16, 64 or 128 gigs of storage. It has a very good rear 8MP camera with fast lens and the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that will work with Apple Pay for mobile payments. Editor's Choice 2014 Sept. 2014 iPhone 6 review
                iPhone 5s The iPhone 5s features Apple's new A7 CPU and a fast PowerVR multi-core GPU that's twice as fast as the iPhone 5 and 5c. The latest flagship iPhone sticks with the Leica inspired metal design and 4" Retina Display, and Apple has added a gold color option. The updated 8MP iSight camera with larger pixels takes noticably better low light shots and the front FaceTime camera offers sharper and brighter video chats. The new iPhone features a Touch ID fingerprint sensor so you can unlock the phone with a press of a finger. The smartphone runs iOS 7 and as usual is available in 16, 32 and 64 gig capacities. Editor's Choice 2013 Sept. 2013 iPhone 5s review
                iPhone 5c This is the first time Apple introduced two new iPhone models at the same time: the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s. While the iPhone 5c is basically an iPhone 5 in more playful colors, it's certainly more exciting than leaving us with the choice of buying this year's model or last year's at a discount. In fact, the iPhone 5c makes us realize how viable that older model still is, with fast performance, the usual excellent (albeit small) 4" Retina Display and a capable 8MP rear camera. Sept. 2013 iPhone 5c review
                iPhone 5 Apple's latest iPhone is the first to feature a larger 4" Retina display with a 16:9 aspect ratio that's perfect for watching TV shows and video. As ever, it's one of the sharpest displays on the planet, and despite the larger display, the iPhone hasn't gotten that much larger. The iPhone 5 is available on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon in the US, and all models have LTE 4G for very fast data speeds. The iPhone 5 features Apple's new A6 CPU and triple core GPU that keep up with the fastest Android phones in the US. It has an 8MP rear camera that can shoot panoramas and a much improved 720p front video chat camera. The iPhone 5 runs iOS 6 and as usual is available in 16, 32 and 64 gig capacities. Editor's Choice 2012 Sept. 2012 iPhone 5 review
                iPhone 4S The iPhone 4S hardly needs an introduction: it's Apple's latest and greatest (yes greatest) iPhone yet, and it's available on three of the big four carriers. Each carrier uses the same hardware, with only software and firmware differences setting them apart. The iPhone 4S has a dual core Apple A5 CPU that's twice as fast as the iPhone 4, and it's available in three storage capacities. It uses the same 3.5" Retina Display as the iPhone 4, and it has an improved 8 megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p video. It runs the new iOS 5 operating system and it has the remarkable Siri voice-activated personal assistant. Oct. 2011 iPhone 4S review


                Android (Google phone and tablets)

                Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Sept. 2017 Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review
                Moto Z2 Force Review Aug. 2017 Moto Z2 Force review

                Samsung Galaxy S8 April 2017 Samsung Galaxy S8 review
                LG V20 Nov. 2016 LG V20 review
                Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (discontinued) The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one heck of a great phone, and it's also an extremely expensive one. Inside, it's the culmination of Samsung's triumphs and past mistakes learned from--TouchWiz is actually useful rather than a Disney adventure, features are well thought out and the phone looks stunning clad in Gorilla Glass 5 and aluminum. The Note 7 has a 5.7" Super AMOLED 2560 x 1440 display with HDR video support, the same excellent cameras as the Galaxy S7 family, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 gigs of RAM and a 64 gigs of storage plus a microSD card slot. It has the S Pen, both fingerprint and iris scanner and much more. Aug. 2016 Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review
                HTC 10 The HTC 10 is a unibody metal phone with a 5.2" QHD Super LCD 5 display in Gorilla Glass with subtly curved edges. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC's tasteful Sense UI on the top dog Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU. It has 4 gigs of RAM, 32 gigs of internal storage and a micro SD card slot. The phone has a 5MP front camera, 12MP rear camera, a high quality audio DAC with headphone amplifier, LTE 4G and a USB-C 3.1 port. April 2016 HTC 10 review
                LG G5 The LG G5 is LG's mainstream size flagship Android smartphone for 2016. The LG G5 has a 5.3" QHD IPS display, and it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with LG's UI. This is LG's first metal bodied phone, and it's available in several colors. It runs on Qualcomm's fastest mobile CPU, the 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 820 and it has 4 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. As you'd expect from LG it has both a removable battery and a microSD card slot as well as an IR blaster. The phone has a very good 16MP rear camera plus a rear 8MP extreme wide angle camera. Its most innovative, though perhaps not most sucessful feature is the modular Friends that can add functionality. April 2016 LG G5 review
                Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge make up for the proverbial sins of the father-- they bring back dear hardware features that Samsung axed when it released the radically redesigned Galaxy S6, s6 edge and s6 edge+. That means the microSD card slot and water resistant features are back--combine those with stunning looks, the fast new Snapdragon 820 CPU, a revised camera that handles low light (and good lighting) well, bigger batteries and striking QHD AMOLED displays and you've got two flagship Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones that earn their high price tags. March 2016 Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge review
                HTC One A9 The HTC One A9 is HTC's "more affordable" but still stylish Android smartphone. It bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPhone 6s, but once you get past that, you'll admire the quality aluminum casing and slim design. The One A9 is available unlocked and via carriers, and it has a 5" 1080p AMOLED display, 32 gigs of internal storage and a microSD card slot. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC Sense software on the Snapdragon 617 midrange CPU. The rear 13MP camera is a great improvement for HTC and it takes pleasing photos. Nov. 2015 HTC One A9 review
                Moto X Pure Edition (2015, aka Moto X Style) Another year, another Moto X. For 2015 things get really exciting with the Moto X Pure Edition (Moto X Style overseas); it's a much more powerful phone than anything we've seen under the Moto X, G and E labels, and it's much bigger. The Moto X Pure Edition has a 5.7" QHD display and a fast Snapdragon 808 CPU with 3 gigs RAM. Other goodies include a microSD card slot, 21MP rear camera, and the usual Moto Maker customizable backs, trim and colors. This is an unlocked phone that works on all major US carriers (GSM and CDMA) with a starting price of $399. Note that Moto sells this phone direct and unlocked, Sprint stores don't carry it. Sept. 2015 Moto X Pure Edition 2015 review
                Samsung Galaxy Note 5 The fifth generation Samsung Galaxy Note goes high style with a glass and metal design that matches the Samsung Galaxy S6. Undeniably the best looking Samsung phablet to date, the Galaxy Note 5 is also faster, has an even better display and some of the best cameras you'll find on a phone. Like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the new S6 Edge +, the Note 5 runs Android 5.1 and TouchWiz on the 2.1 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU with 4 gigs of RAM and fast UFS 2.0 storage. It has a 5.7" QHD Super AMOLED display, fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor and the venerable S Pen, but it loses the removable battery and microSD card slot that were staples of previous Note models. Editor's Choice 2015 Aug. 2015 Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review
                Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ The super-sized version of the Galaxy S6 edge sports a stunning 5.7" QHD Super AMOLED display with side curves. The phone is available in gold and black, and it's a stunning looking piece. Inside, it's mostly the same internals as the Note 5 (minus the pen) and Samsung Galaxy S6. It runs Android 5.1 and TouchWiz on the 2.1 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU with 4 gigs of RAM and fast UFS 2.0 storage. The edge+ has a 5.7" QHD Super AMOLED display, fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor and a front 5MP camera and rear 16MP camera. Aug. 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ review
                Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (video review) An affordable Android smartphone offered by Sprint, T-Mobile and Cricket in the US. The phone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung TouchWiz software on the quad core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU with Adreno 306 graphics. It has 1.5 gigs of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage. The 5” 960 x 540 TFT display won’t win resolution awards, but it has decent colors and brightness. The smartphone has a removable 2600 mAh battery, a microSD card slot, single band WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC. It has a sharp 5MP front camera with a wide angle lens and a rear 8MP camera with LED flash that can shoot 1080p video. Aug. 2015 Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime video review
                LG G Stylo Like LG phones but find the LG G4 too rich for your wallet? The LG G Stylo shares the same styling, Android 5.0 Lollipop and it has a big screen too. In fact at 5.7", the IPS display is larger than the G4's, but it's lower resolution. The LG G Stylo is available on Sprint, Boost Mobile, MetroPCS and T-Mobile for $250 to $288. That nets you a set of quite good cameras, a quad core Snapdragon 410 CPU, 4G LTE and a removable 3,000 mAh battery. July 2015 LG G Stylo review
                LG G4 The LG G4 is the company's best high end smartphone yet. With an evolution of the LG G3 design that makes a 5.5" phone seem manageable, a comfortable curve and new leather backs that simply look stunning, it's hard not to like the looks. The LG G4 has a QHD IPS quantum 5.5" display, a truly impressive 16MP camera with a fast f/1.8 lens and OIS, a sharp 8 megapixel front camera and a removable 3,000 mAh battery. The phone runs Android Lollipop 5.1 with LG UI on the 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 808 CPU with 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. The LG G4 will be available on most carriers in June 2015. May 2015 LG G4 review
                HTC One M9 The HTC One M9 is every bit as gorgeous as the One M8. In fact it has a little more polish, literally and figuratively, and I'd say it's the best looking One yet, though some might have trouble telling the M8 and M9 apart at first glance. The HTC One M9 runs Android 5 Lollipop with HTC Sense software on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU clocked at 2 GHZ. It has 3 gigs of RAM, 32 gigs of storage and a microSD card slot HTC stuck with the same 5" 1920 x 1080 LCD 3 display as the M8, but upgraded the rear camera to a traditional 20MP model. May 2015 HTC One M9 review
                Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge What a difference a year makes. Samsung's new mainstream sized flagship phones for 2015 are every bit as attractive and elegant looking as the iPhone 6 and HTC One M9. Clad in glass and aluminum, both the GS6 and S6 Edge are classy and attractive phones whose looks match the excellent features inside. From the scrumptious 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED displays to the fast 2.1 GHz Exynos octa-core CPU these phones are winners. There's a much more reliable fingerprint scanner, a sharp 5MP front camera and an excellent 16MP rear camera with OIS and 4K video capture. Editor's Choice 2015. March 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 review
                LG G Flex 2 Let's face it, the original LG G Flex wasn't a huge sucess-- the specs were lacking and the phone was too big for most. The LG G Flex 2 remedies these issues, and it's actually a fine phone that might charm you with its attractive and comfortable curve. The LG G Flex 2 runs on the new 2 GHz Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU and it has a pleasing curved 5.5" full HD P-OLED display that's color saturated and sharp. The phone has the same very good rear 13MP camera with OIS as the LG G3 along with dual band WiFi 801.11ac, NFC and an AV remote. The smartphone is flexible and the back has a self-healing finish that's somewhat scratch resistant. March 2015 LG G Flex 2 review
                Google Nexus 6 This year Google is attacking the phablet market with their 6 inch Nexus 6. It's back to the high line too, with the device priced at $649 full retail and unlocked. The big 4 US carriers will also offer the Nexus 6, so you'll have payment and contract plan options. The Nexus 6 runs on the fastest CPU currently available in an Android smartphone, the quad core 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with Adreno 420 graphics and 3 gigs of RAM. It's available in 32 and 64 gig capacities. It has 4G LTE on 12 bands, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and a GPS. Surprisingly for Google and Moto, who don't have the best track record with phone cameras, the Nexus 6 has a capable 13MP rear camera with a Sony sensor. Dec. 2014 Nexus 6 review
                Samsung Galaxy Note Edge We've seen phones that have curved glass simply to have curved glass. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the curvy twin to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, has a curved display with a purpose. Sure it takes the Note 4 design and makes it look cool and different, but that waterfall curve on the right side gives us a secondary 160 pixel display to interact with. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is otherwise the same as the excellent Note 4. It has a QHD 5.6" Super AMOLED main display (enhanced with curved Gorilla Glass 3 and a curved AMOLED panel underneath that adds the 160 x 2560 edge display), a removable faux leather back cover, metal sides and it runs on the Snapdragon 805 quad core 2.7GHz CPU with 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage plus microSD card slot. The excellent 16MP rear camera with 4K video recording is here too. Nov. 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review
                Samsung Galaxy Note 4 That fabulous phablet is back and better than ever. The Note 4 is the most stylish looking big phone from Samsung yet, thanks to metal sides and a refined design. The S Pen is here for precise writing and drawing, and the striking 5.7" Super AMOLED display runs at an impressive 2560 x 1440 resolution. The Note 4 runs on the new 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad core CPU with Adreno 420 graphics and it has 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. Other goodies include a fingerprint scanner, health monitor, 4K video recording and a removable battery. Editor's Choice 2014. Oct. 2014 Samung Galaxy Note 4 review
                HTC One E8 If you like the HTC One M8 but want to save $100 or don't like the M8's metal casing, the E8 might be for you. It has the same iconic design as the One M8 along with the BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers and 5" SLCD 3 full HD display. In fact, it has the same Snapdragon 801 quad core 2.3GHz CPU and 2 gigs of RAM too. The HTC One E8 has a traditional 13Mp rear camera, front 5MP camera, 4G LTE with Sprint Spark, 16 gigs of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6 software. Sept. 2014 HTC One E8 review
                Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport Yes, it's another Samsung Galaxy S5 variant. This time we look at the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, currently exclusive to Sprint in the US. It's a more sporty version of the GS5 that's available in zingy red or electric blue, and it has a grippy outer casing. Inside you'll find the exact same internals, battery and camera as the Galaxy S5 original flavor. The GS5 Sport has an excellent Super AMOLED 1920 x 1080 display, 2.5GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU with Adreno 330 graphics, 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. It has a microSD card slot, an IR blaster and 4G LTE with world GSM roaming. Aug. 2014 Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport review
                LG G3 The LG G3 is the company's flagship Android smartphone for 2014, and it's a big one, literally and figuratively. Actually, for a 5.5" phone, it's surprisingly compact, and it's not much larger than the smaller-screen HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5. The G3's biggest claim to fame is the impressively high 2560 x 1440 IPS display--that's the same resolution as high DPI Windows 8 laptops, but crammed into a 5.5" screen for 538 PPI density. Is that overkill? Sure it is, but it's great for marketing in a world where better than HD and 4k are big buzzwords. Editor's Choice 2014. July 2014 LG G3 review
                Samsung Galaxy S5 The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the manufacturer's flagship mainstream size Android phone for 2014, and it sports a new fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. It has a best of breed 5.1" Super AMOLED HD display running at 1920 x 1080 and it runs on the new 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core CPU with 2 gigs of DDR3 RAM. As you'd expect from Samsung, it's very slim yet it has a removable battery and a microSD card slot. The rear 16 megapixel camera is one of the better models on the market and it can even shoot decent 4K video. The GS5 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung's TouchWiz UI and software. It's available on all major and some regional carriers. Editor's Choice 2014. April 2014 Samsung Galaxy S5 review
                HTC One M8 We liked the first HTC One quite a lot, and this year's model address many of its (sometimes small) shortcomings while bringing us one of the most gorgeous phone designs yet. The HTC One M8 is or will be available on all major carriers and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6 for a tasteful and light customization of the OS. It's the first phone to ship with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core CPU for modest speed gains and it has 32 gigs of storage plus a microSD card slot. The 5" full HD LCD is sharp and bright, and the new 5 megapixel front camera will be a hit with the video chat crowd and selfie fans. Is it perfect? Not quite, but it's good enough to win our Editor's Choice award. April 2014 HTC One M8 review
                LG G Flex Some folks have given the LG G Flex a hard time for being downright odd: it's a curved 6" Android smartphone with some flexibility to avoid breaking. The curve actually feels good in the hand, cuts down on glare and makes this otherwise huge phone a bit more manageable. Inside the specs are all flagship with one exception: a 2.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 gigs of RAM, 32 gigs of storage, a huge battery and a capable 13 megapixel camera that can shoot 4k video. But the display resolution is relatively low at 720p, and that hurts. Is that enough to doom the G Flex? Read our review to find out. Feb. 2014 LG G Flex review
                HTC One max The HTC One max is largely what we expected: a bigger version of the successful HTC One. That's good news and bad: certainly getting even more HTC One in your hands has appeal if you are fond of phablets or really big phones. The bad news is that we'd hoped HTC would push the envelope and improve specs and features in the 8 months since the 4.7" HTC launched. The One max has a 5.9" Super LCD display running at full HD resolution, a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 32 gigs of internal storage and the same 4MP Ultrapixel camera used in the HTC One. Nov. 2013 HTC One max review
                Google Nexus 5 You get what you pay for, and sometimes a bit more when it's a Google Nexus product. The new Nexus 5, based very loosely on the lovely LG G2 and made by LG, is a bargain of a phone though it's not perfect. The Nexus 5 has a 5 inch full HD IPS display, the latest generation Snapdragon 800 quad core CPU with Adreno 330 graphics, 2 gigs of RAM, LTE 4G on a host of bands, a front 1.3MP camera and a rear 8MP camera with LED flash. It's sold directly by Google and it's unlocked for use with any carrier. No contract required! The 16 gig model is $349 and the 32 gig model is $399, and the phone is available in your choice of black or white. Is this the phone for you? Read our review and watch our video review to find out. Nov. 2013 Google Nexus 5 review
                Samsung Galaxy Note 3 There's no denying that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 continues to top the charts as best phablet. Since the original Note shipped a few years back, we've seen occasional competition for the bigger than a phone but smaller than a tablet crown, but Samsung's combination of a relatively compact and light body, S Pen digital pen and custom software still make the Galaxy Note 3 the best phablet at the high end. The third generation Note has a 5.7" full HD Super AMOLED display, a very fast 2.3GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 CPU with 3 gigs of RAM, our beloved S Pen with note taking and art apps, a capable 13MP rear camera and the usual LTE 4G, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11ac. Oct. 2013 Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review
                LG G2 This is LG's best Android smartphone to date. From the glorious 5.2" full HD IPS display to the capable 13 megapixel camera to the new super-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core 2.26GHz CPU, the phone is a winner. Despite the larger display, the G2 is no bigger than the smaller-screen Galaxy S4 and HTC One, thanks to the edge-to-edge display. The phone has a generous 3,000 mAh battery, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, NFC and a capable 2.1MP front camera. Sept. 2013 LG G2 review
                Moto X Finally, an Android smartphone that caters to ergonomics and usability with handy features like an active sleep screen that keeps you informed and always-on voice command. The Moto X will be available on all major US carriers and it has a 4.7" 1280 x 720 AMOLED display, 1.7GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU with custom processors to handle voice and motion recognition (Moto calls this their X8 processing platform), 2 gigs of RAM, 16 or 32 gigs of storage, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE + EDR, NFC, a front 2MP camera and capable RGBC 10MP rear camera. Sept. 2013 Moto X review
                Sprint Vital The Sprint Vital, made by ZTE, is a mid-priced phone with a big display, 4G LTE and a refreshingly clean Android experience. Priced at $99 with contract after rebate, the Vital is a lot of phone for the price. You get a bright, sharp and colorful 5” display with wide viewing angles, a capable dual core Snapdragon CPU and a 13 megapixel camera with flash.The Vital runs on a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 CPU with a gig of RAM and 8 gigs of storage. July 2013 Sprint Vital review
                Samsung Galaxy S4 This is Samsung's 2013 flagship Android smartphone. Yes, you could call it an evolutionary device, but the new features (love 'em or hate 'em) are more than evolutionary. When a phone watches you and responds to your movements, that's something new and exciting (and sometimes crazy making). Perhaps it's a revolutionary smartphone trapped in an evolutionary casing? The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 5" full HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 quad core CPU with 2 gigs of RAM and an excellent 13 megapixel camera. May 2013 Samsung Galaxy S4 review
                HTC One The HTC One has the perfect storm of smartphone features, from its fast and brand new Snapdragon 600 quad core CPU to its stunning full HD 4.7" display and impressive UltraPixel camera that laughs at darkness. Then there's the striking aluminum casing that gives the iPhone 5 a run for your money and excellent BoomSound stereo speakers up front where they belong. Better yet, it's available on three of the top four US carriers and HTC sells an unlocked GSM edition for those who like their autonomy and unlocked bootloaders. Editor's Choice 2013. April 2013 HTC One review
                Samsung Galaxy Note II You know the Samsung Galaxy Note was one of our top picks last year, right? Well, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a 5.5" smartphone or phablet is even better. Bigger display, much faster CPU than our US first gen Note, a better camera and more S Pen features. The Note II is available on all major US carriers, with a $299 price tag with contract. The Note II has a 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD display that works with both touch and the included S Pen. It runs on Samsung's quad core Exynos CPU with MALI 400 graphics and it has 2 gigs of RAM. Other amenities include a micro SD card slot, LTE (except on T-Mobile) and a removable 3,100 mAh battery. Dec. 2012 Samsung Galaxy Note II review
                LG Optimus G LG's new flagship phone has what it takes to fight the competition from Samsung and HTC. This Android 4.0 smartphone is available on AT&T and Sprint, and it packs an excellent 1280 x 768 IPS display into a slim 0.33" casing with a patterned glass back. This is the first US smartphone to run the 1.5GHz quad core Qualcomm S4 Pro CPU with Adreno 320 graphics and it's by far the fastest in most tests. The phone has LTE 4G, NFC, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a GPS. The Sprint version has a 13 megapixel camera AT&T version has an 8MP rear camera. Both run LG's Optimus UI with compelling features that we actually find useful, even if we're still not fond of their icon selection. Oct. 2012 LG Optimus G review
                Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE It's hard to find a smartphone with a hardware QWERTY keyboard these days. Happily, Motorola still invests in that form factor, from the Droid line on Verizon to the new Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE on Sprint. Though the Photon Q isn't quite as sleek as the Droid, it packs top-notch features like a 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 CPU (currently the top performing smartphone CPU in US phones), a gig of RAM, LTE, an 8 megapixel rear camera plus front video chat camera and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Sept. 2012 Motorola Photon Q review
                Samsung Galaxy S III The 2012 edition of Samsung's top of the line Android smartphone features a 4.8" Super AMOLED 720p display, a very fast 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. It has an excellent rear 8MP camera, clear voice and LTE (subject to network availability). June 2012 Samsung Galaxy S III review
                HTC EVO 4G LTE This is the phone to beat on Sprint. Like the original EVO years ago, it has the right combo of good looks, high quality materials and top off the line features that makes for a true flagship smartphone. As you can guess from the name, this 4.7" Android ICS smartphone has LTE 4G, though Sprint doesn't actually have an LTE network up and running yet. You'll get WiFi and 3G to fall back on until LTE hits your area, and the phone has NFC with Google Wallet that works now. The EVO 4G LTE runs on an extremely fast yet power frugal Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz CPU that benchmarks near the top of our tests. It has 16 gigs of storage and a microSD card slot for expansion. Also on board is HTC's excellent 8MP camera with BSI sensor and a dedicated image processing chip. May 2012 HTC EVO 4G LTE review
                Samsung Galaxy Nexus The Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint is one of the carrier's first LTE phones. It's the first Android phone to run Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich too. The Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65" Super AMOLED display running at 1280 x 720, and it has a dual core 1.2GHz TI CPU with hardware graphics acceleration. This is a video review. May 2012 Samsung Galaxy Nexus review
                LG Viper 4G LTE The LG Viper is Sprint's most affordable LTE smartphone, and it sells for $99 with contract. In addition you get free Dropbox cloud storage and a Google Wallet credit in your account. As you'd guess, the Viper is a mid-tier phone, but it has a few nice perks like NFC with Google Wallet and a 700 nit brightness IPS display that looks very sharp and colorful. The phone has a 4", 800 x 480 display and it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread-- sorry, no ICS here. This is a video review. May 2012 LG Viper 4G LTE review
                Sprint ZTE Optik Sprint's rolling out a new affordable 7 inch Android tablet, the ZTE Opik, and honestly it's a solid tablet for the money. The Optik sells for $99 with a 2 year contract and $349 without contract. That doesn't mean the specs are bargain basement: it has a sharp 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen with good viewing angles that's great for eBook reading, and a 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. The Optik runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and it has Sprint 3G. This is a video review. March 2012 ZTE Optik review
                ZTE Fury The ZTE Fury on Sprint is only $20 with contract and $220 without contract, but it has a few goodies like an IPS Gorilla Glass display, good reception and the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The Fury has a 3.5" 320 x 480 display (by no means high res, but it's sharp), a 1GHz single core Snapdragon CPU and a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash. March 2012 ZTE Fury video review
                HTC EVO Design 4G An affordable EVO with WiMAX 4G and an elegant, high quality design. That's the HTC EVO Design 4G. It has HTC's signature liberal use of metal and soft touch finishes and it feels solid in the hand. The phone has a 4" qHD Super LCD, and that means it's sharp looking and also more pocketable. This $99 with contract phone has a 1.2GHz single core Snapdragon CPU, front video chat camera and a rear 5 megapixel camera with LED flash that can shoot 720p video. Voice quality is good and HTC Sense 3.0 is on board for your UI pleasure. The phone supports the full range of Sprint services including Sprint TV and Sprint Music Plus. Oct. 2011 HTC EVO Design 4G review
                Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Sprint is first to market with a US version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, and it's a winner. They've increased the display a bit to a pocket stretching 4.5", and it's still that super-rich Super AMOLED Plus technology. The phone has a dual core 1.2 GHz Samsung Exynos CPU with GPU, and it's by far the fastest mobile CPU in a shipping phone. The smartphone runs Android OS 2.3.4 with Samsung TouchWiz software, and it has 16 gigs of internal storage along with WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. The phone has 4G WiMAX and 3G on Sprint's network, and a beefy battery to combat the drain. Sept. 2011 Samsung Epic 4G Touch review
                Motorola Photon 4G One of our top picks among Sprint's late summer 2011 Android smartphones, the Motorola Photon 4G has a sharp 4.3" qHD display, an 8 megapixel camera, HDMI-out and 16 gigs of internal storage. This is both a world phone with GSM for roaming and a WiMAX 4G smartphone. It runs Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread on a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU. Aug. 2011 Motorola Photon 4G review
                Samsung Conquer 4G When a new 4G phone comes out on Sprint, it usually sells for $199 or more with contract. The Samsung Conquer 4G sells for just $99 at launch, but it has some features you'd expect from a more expensive phone like 4G WiMAX, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, Android OS 2.3.4 Gingerbread (minus TouchWiz) and solid call quality. If you're after a 4G phone on Sprint and don't want the year old HTC EVO 4G or a QWERTY slider in the $99 bracket, the Conquer 4G is worth a look. Aug. 2011 Samsung Conquer 4G review
                HTC EVO 3D The HTC EVO 4G is a hard act to follow. Sprint's former flagship phone was a real crowd pleaser thanks to its at the time fast CPU, large display and 4G. How do you top that? Double the cores while increasing CPU speed, raise display resolution and throw in a 3D display and camera. That's the EVO 3D, a 1.2 GHz dual core Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with WiMAX 4G, a qHD4.3" display and a glassless 3D display (don't worry, it does 2D too). The phone is built like a tank, yet it's good looking and it's slim despite the beefy battery inside. If you're looking for the new flagship phone on Sprint, this is it. June 2011 HTC EVO 3D review
                Motorola XPRT Sprint's version of the Droid Pro on Verizon is a higher end QWERTY-bar Android smartphone with a 3.1" display, Android OS 2.2 Froyo with Motoblur software and a 1GHz CPU. It has 3G EV-DO Rev. A and GSM for world roaming. If you're looking to move from a BlackBerry, the XPRT wants you. June 2011 Motorola XPRT review
                Nexus S 4G The fast, clean and attractive Nexus S has made its way to Sprint and gained 4G in the process. The Nexus S 4G, like the GSM version, remains one of our favorite smartphones, even though it's not a new kid on the block. 4G is a very welcome addition and the Nexus S 4G has a vivid 4" Super AMOLED display, 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU, NFC, both front and rear cameras and 16 gigs of storage. Android OS 2.3.4 Gingerbread steals the show here in its pure form, complete with Gtalk video chat. Since it's a Google branded phone (though made by Samsung), timely OS updates should be yours with this phone. May 2011 Google Nexus S 4G review
                Kyocera Echo First a dual screen notebook in the Acer Iconia 6120, and now a dual screen Android phone. The Kyocera Echo received a minor bashing after it was announced, but now that we've had it hands-on for a week, it's actually a pretty innovative and useful smartphone. The Echo has two 800 x 480 pixel, 3.5" displays and it can run dueling apps or span an app across the entire display. It runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, has 3G and a 5 megapixel shooter that can take 720p video. The design might not win a Milan design award, but it has a certain Steampunk look that just might grow on you. April 2011 Kyocera Echo review
                HTC EVO Shift 4G This is the keyboarded companion to Sprint's wildly successful HTC EVO 4G. Unlike the original EVO, the Shift 4G isn't a top of the line superphone, but rather a solidly built mid to high tier QWERTY Android phone that's well suited to business. It has an 800MHz second gen Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, an 800 x 480 pixel 3.6" capacitive multi-touch display and a 5 megapixel camera. It runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense software. The Shift has both 3G EV-DO Rev. A and WiMax 4G with Sprint's WiFi hotspot feature. Jan. 2011 HTC EVO Shift 4G review
                Samsung Galaxy Tab The first Android tablet that's a viable iPad opponent, the Galaxy Tab is offered by all 4 major US carriers and has a lot to love. The Tab has a 7" capacitive display running at 1024 x 600 and Android OS 2.2 Froyo. Like the Galaxy S phones, the Tab runs on a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU with GPU, has 512 megs of RAM, lots of storage, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth and a GPS. All Galaxy Tab models have 3G data but US versions cannot make calls over the cellular network. We review the T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon versions. Dec. 2010 Samsung Galaxy Tab review
                LG Optimus S The LG Optimus S is Sprint's most affordable Android smartphone; in fact it sells for less than some feature phones. That doesn't mean it's junk, in fact it's a solid Android smartphone that runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo on a 600MHz Qualcomm processor. The Optimus S is part of the Sprint ID trio of phones that makes customization of software and widgets easy based on your interests. The Optimus S has a 3.2" HVGA capacitive multi-touch display, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera. This is a video review of the phone. Nov. 2010 LG Optimus S review
                Samsung Transform In the relentless rank of Samsung mid-range QWERTY Android smartphones on Sprint, the Transform stands out as the first to offer the new Sprint ID software service. With a few hardware improvements over this summer's Samsung Intercept such as a larger display and front-facing camera, the Transform sits at the top of the Sprint ID trio rounded out by the LG Optimus S and the Sanyo Zio. It has a pleasant hardware keyboard, a 3.5" 320 x 480 display, an 800MHz CPU, a 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. The phone starts with vanilla Android OS 2.1 and adds a helping of Sprint ID on top. Sadly, Sprint's new service bogs down the Transform, and the mid-range hardware doesn't threaten the flagship Samsung Epic 4G. Oct. 2010 Samsung Transform review
                Sanyo Zio Sanyo shows us that a budget smartphone doesn't have to be clunky or ugly. On the contrary, the Zio is very attractive and weighs only 3.7 ounces. Sanyo, owned by Kyocera, first released the Zio on Cricket Wireless, and the Sprint version sports some improvements, including Android OS 2.1. The Sanyo Zio has an 800 x 480 touch screen, a 600MHz processor and a 3.2 megapixel camera. Not bad specs for an entry level phone. It has WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, a GPS that works with TeleNav and Google Maps, and a microSD card slot with a 2 gig card pre-loaded. It's in the trio of new Sprint Android phones to feature Sprint ID, a service that downloads free packs of software to speed up customizing your device. Oct. 2010 Sanyo Zio review
                Samsung Epic 4G Sprint's second 4G superphone is here. The Epic 4G dares to be different with its large QWERTY keyboard that strays from the more common slate design. And it's a great keyboard with a dedicated number row, Android buttons and arrow keys. If you're a Sprint customer who lusted for the HTC EVO 4G but cringed at its on-screen keyboard, Samsung has your number. The Epic 4G is a Galaxy S family phone and it has that series' 4" Super AMOLED 800 x 480 display, 1GHz Hummingbird CPU with GPU acceleration, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. Improvements include a 5 megapixel camera with flash and a front-facing VGA camera and a notification LED. The Epic runs Android OS 2.1 with Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 UI.

                Samsung Intercept Though they share a similar design and OS, it's hard to say that the Intercept is Sprint's replacement for the Samsung Moment. The Intercept runs a newer version of Android OS and it drops the heavy dose of Samsung TouchWiz software but it gets a lower resolution, non-AMOLED display in the process. The Intercept targets first time smartphone buyers and those who don't want to spend big bucks on a phone but would like to play with Android. The Intercept has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2 megapixel camera, an 800MHz CPU, a GPS that works with Google Maps, 3G, Sprint TV and stereo Bluetooth. It's available in two colors: pink and gray.

                HTC EVO 4G Sprint's tried the magic phone formula a few times, each time with improving results. First we had the Instinct, then the Palm Pre and now we have the HTC EVO; definitely a blockbuster smartphone. The EVO has a huge and lovely 4.3" capacitive multi-touch display much like the HTC HD2 on T-Mobile. But unlike the HD2, the EVO runs Android and is the first phone with 4G WiMAX service. Yummy. The EVO has the best of everything: Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, an 8 megapixel camera, front video conferencing camera, 3G EV-DO Rev. A, a mobile hotspot feature, GPS, WiFi and the usual assortment of Sprint apps and services including Sprint Navigation and Sprint TV.

                HTC Hero Sprint just won't quit launching great smartphones lately. The HTC Hero is the best Android Google OS phone we've seen so far thanks to some help from HTC's own Sense UI software and Sprint's services like Sprint TV and Sprint Navigation. Unlike most Android phones (not that there are many), the Hero syncs not only to Google services but MS Exchange and Outlook too. The Hero features a 3.2", 480 x 320 capacitive multi-touch screen, WiFi, GPS, EV-DO Rev. A fast data and Google's excellent web browser and other goodies.

                Samsung Moment Lately it seems like a robot invasion with new Android phones popping up a few times per month. The Samsung Moment is Sprint's second Android Google OS phone, following on the heels of the lovely HTC Hero. The Moment is for you QWERTY types: it features a slide out hardware keyboard that's roomy and has good travel. But you might not notice it at first since the vibrant and captivating 3.2" AMOLED capacitive touchscreen steals the show. The Moment has WiFi, a GPS, a 3.2 megapixel camera and the usual Sprint goodies like Sprint TV, NFL Mobile and Sprint Navigation.

                HTC 8XT Finally, Windows Phone 8 comes to Sprint in the guise of the stylish HTC 8XT. A close relative of the HTC 8X and 8S, the Sprint version has a colorful though not particularly high resolution display, that unique tapered HTC design and a boldly colored soft touch casing. The phone has a 1.4GHz dual core Snapdragon 400 CPU with a gig of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage. It has a microSDXC card slot for storage expansion, LTE 4G, and a very capable 8 megapixel rear camera with a backside illuminated sensor and 1080p video recording. Aug. 2013 HTC 8XT review
                HTC Arrive Sprint's first Windows Phone 7 smartphone is one of our favorites. The hardware design and quality are typical top-notch HTC and the unique hinge is robust. The Arrive runs the updated version of Windows Phone 7 that adds copy and paste along with a few other improvements, and it has 3G EV-DO. Rev. A. Specs are typical for the platform with a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 16 gigs of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, a GPS and a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot 720p video. The Arrive has a 3.6" display and a very good QWERTY keyboard. April 2011 HTC Arrive review


                BlackBerry (OS 10)

                BlackBerry Q10 This is the BlackBerry that Bold and Curve users have been waiting for. It has a thoroughly modern OS that's fast, great at multi-tasking and secure, and it maintains that hardware QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry users love. For those who talk and text more than surf the web and watch videos, the BlackBerry Q10 is your phone. The keyboard is excellent and the phone has very good voice quality. Inside, it runs on the same internals as the already released BlackBerry Z10: 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon CPU, 2 gigs of RAM, 16 gigs of storage and a microSD card slot. It has 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, a GPS and NFC. There's a front 2MP camera and a rear 8MP camera with HDR. The Q10 runs BlackBerry OS 10.1 and it has a 3.1" touchscreen.

                Samsung Restore Not into the touch screen craze? Just want a solid 3G messaging phone? The eco-friendly Samsung Restore is a full-featured messaging phone with EV-DO, Sprint TV, Sprint Navigation, the Netfront web browser and a solid music player that handles MP3 and AAC iTunes format music. The Restore has a roomy slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but when closed it looks like a normal candy bar phone with a standard number pad. It has a GPS, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth with stereo support and an SDHC microSD card slot. A nice mid-tier offering from Sprint and Samsung.

                LG Remarq Here's another affordable, eco-friendly phone from Sprint for you QWERTY messaging types. The square-ish Remarq is 87 percent recyclable and its casing is made from nearly 20 percent recycled plastics. The LG is a messaging-oriented basic feature phone with a slide-down full QWERTY keyboard and an email client that can handle popular services like Hotmail and Gmail as well as the more serious stuff like Exchange and Lotus Notes. This is a 2G phone so it lacks services like Sprint TV and there's no navigation, just Family Locator. Despite the recycled plastics, the Remarq is quite stylish looking and won't remind you of last weeks discarded Pepsi bottle.

The Samsung Seek has a roomy slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 2.6" QVGA display, but no 3G, and that means no expensive data plan. The Seek can handle most any kind of email and it has a robust set of IM clients. Beyond that, it's just the basics: a 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, MP3 player and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo.

But the Elite is more rounded, more solidly built and it adds two cool new features: an external QVGA touchscreen and the latest version of Sprint's OneClick UI. It supports Sprint's many services including EV-DO data, Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV and Sprint Music. It has a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, an SDHC microSD card slot and a GPS. It's available in red and black is coming. This review includes a video review.

                Samsung Instinct HD The third generation Instinct brings HD video recording at a remarkable 1280 x 720 pixels and a capacitive 3.2" touch screen to the standard Instinct formula. It has a fun, intuitive and attractive user interface and it works with every service Sprint offers: Sprint TV, Sprint Radio, Sprint Navigation, NFL Mobile and Nascar. The 320 x 480 display now sports the same resolution as the iPhone 3GS and HTC Hero, while the 5 megapixel camera puts it at the high end of US camera phones. But the HD sells for more than several compelling phones in Sprint's own lineup? Is it worth it?

Available in Earth Green and Ocean Blue, the Samsung Reclaim M560 is made from bio-plastics (corn) and 80% of the phone is recyclable. Heck, even the box is made from recycled materials and printed with soy inks. Yummy as all that sounds, you can't eat it but you can make phone calls, access the web using the full HTML browser, navigate using the GPS and watch Sprint TV over the Reclaim's EVDO Rev. A data connection. For $49 with contract, you can get a mini-Prius high.

                Samsung Instinct S30 Sprint's updated Instinct offers the same set of features and touch screen user interface as the original Instinct but with better looks. The S30 is slightly smaller and its curves make it seem even smaller. The phone features EVDO, Sprint TV, Sprint Radio, a GPS with Sprint Navigation, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo, a 2 megapixel camera and SDHC microSD card slot. There's an HTML web browser plus Opera Mini and email support as well.

                LG Rumor 2 The original Rumor, released 1.5 years ago has a successor that gives the Rumor cooler looks while maintaining its popular side-sliding keyboard. Like the first gen edition, the Rumor 2 is a budget texting phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, sturdy build and basic features. Exclusive to Sprint in the US, the Rumor 2 has a 4 row keyboard with dedicated number row and a QVGA display (both new for the Rumor 2), a music player, 1.3 megapixel camera and microSD card slot. It has 1xRTT for data but not EVDO. Also new is interchangeable backplates for the fashion-conscious, and 2 are included in the box.

                Samsung Highnote The Highnote is a music phone with a 2 way slider. Slide the display down to reveal the large speaker system and slide it up to reveal the number pad. The Highnote is packed with features including touch control, EVDO, Sprint TV and GPS with Sprint Navigation. Music-centric features include the large speaker, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, A2DP Bluetooth strereo, a music player and access to Sprint's music store.

                LG Lotus And now for something completely different: the LG Lotus is a nearly square flip phone with a roomy QWERTY keyboard inside. If you thought the Verizon Blitz was novel looking, the Lotus is truly head-turning. But looks aren't everything, and thankfully the LG impressed us with its very good 2 megapixel camera, excellent Sprint TV performance, integrated document viewer, good GPS, sharp and bright widescreen display and good EVDO speeds. As you'd expect from a QWERTY phone, the Lotus handles IM, texting and personal email.

                Samsung Rant Like the LG Rumor on Sprint, but don't want to give up EVDO? The Samsung Rant comes to the rescue with a form factor that's similar to the popular Rumor, but adds EVDO and a 4th row of keyboard keys. The Rant supports Sprint TV for some multimedia broadband goodness, and it has a microSD card slot, music player with Bluetooth stereo support. It also has a GPS that works with Sprint Navigator and a 2 megapixel camera that takes still photos and video.

                Sanyo Katana Eclipse The latest in the Katana line for Sprint, the Eclipse adds funky LED front flip lighting effects to last year's Katana DLX feature set.

                Motorola RAZR VE20 Though it might not be the most stunning looking RAZR to hit the market, the RAZR VE20 for Sprint packs a very strong set of features along with Moto's signature excellent reception. The RAZR VE20 is narrower than the original RAZR, yet it packs in a GPS that works with Sprint Navigation, EVDO, Sprint TV, a music player, Bluetooth stereo A2DP, Sprint TV and a microSD card slot. At $99 with contract, it's easy on the wallet too.

                Samsung Instinct Despite Sprint's marketing claims, the Samsung Instinct is no iPhone-killer, but it's a darned good and fun phone in its own right. The instinct features a large 3.1" color touch screen with haptic vibration feedback that works well. The Instinct has just about every feature you could ask for except WiFi, including: EVDO rev. A fast data, GPS, voice command software,visual voicemail, an SDHC microSD expansion slot with 2 gig card included, a 2MP camera that shoots video and still photos, Sprint TV, Sprint Radio and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo. The Instinct goes on sale June 20th.

                RIM BlackBerry

                BlackBerry Torch 9850 RIM's all new full touchscreen phone runs BlackBerry OS 7 on the same 1.2GHz CPU as the Bold 9930 and Torch 9810. It has a 3.7", 800 x 480 capacitive multi-touch display that's very sharp and bright. There's no hardware keyboard here, but the virtual one is pretty decent, and the phone is fast. It has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. It's a world phone with a GSM SIM card slot. Aug. 2011 BlackBerry Torch 9850
                BlackBerry Bold 9930 It's been quite some time since RIM introduced a new BlackBerry smartphone. Now we've got three new touchscreen 'Berries launching together. In this review we look at Verizon Wireless' version of the Bold 9930, which is identical to the Sprint version other than carrier software bundles. This is definitely RIM's best BlackBerry yet, with a perfect keyboard, capacitive touch screen, 1.2GHz CPU and plenty of RAM. The Bold 9930 has a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot 720p video, a much improved web browser and a more social BBM. Aug. 2011 BlackBerry Bold 9930 review
                BlackBerry Style RIM's first flip phone with a full QWERTY keyboard is aptly named. This is one stylish looking clamshell phone with rich textures and great looks. Inside we've got BlackBerry OS 6 which works well on non-touch screen phones like the Style. It's modern, more intuitive and reasonably fast. The new web browser brings BlackBerry into modern times and the sharp inner display is great for browsing and video playback. The Style has a 528MHz CPU, 512 megs of RAM and the usual trio of WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. Nov. 2010 BlackBerry Style review
                BlackBerry Bold 9650 The Bold 9650 replaces the BlackBerry Tour as Sprint and Verizon's high end non-touch screen model with world roaming. The Bold closely resembles its GSM sibling the Bold 9700 and it's quite compact. It has EV-DO 3G for fast data, GSM roaming capabilities, a 480 x 360 display, an optical trackpad rather than a trackball, GPS and WiFi too. We take a look at the Sprint version for this review.

                BlackBerry Curve 8530 The BlackBerry Curve 8530 is the CDMA counterpart to the GSM BlackBerry Curve 8520 we reviewed a few months back. The Curve 8530 is available on both Verizon and Sprint, and we look at the Verizon version in our review. The BlackBerry 8530 is the new entry level Curve with a rugged body, RIM's new optical trackpad that replaces the trackball and multimedia controls up top. It runs OS 5 and has WiFi, Bluetooth with a full set of profiles, 3G EV-DO Rev. 0, an SDHC microSD card slot and a 3.5mm stereo jack. Other features include a QVGA display, the new VZ Navigator version 5 and V Cast support.

                BlackBerry Tour The BlackBerry Tour is RIM's new flagship CDMA phone for Sprint and Verizon Wireless. If you crossed the BlackBerry Bold with the Curve 8900, you'd have the Tour which has the 8900's fluid lines and the Bold's touch of class and larger presence. The BlackBerry Tour 9630 has a 480 x 360 pixel display, a 528MHz CPU, EVDO Rev. A for fast wireless data and a SIM card slot for GSM world roaming outside the US. Other high end features include a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth with A2DP, and a very capable media player. Alas, there's no WiFi. We take a look at both the Sprint and Verizon models in this review.

                BlackBerry Curve 8330 The CDMA version of the Curve is finally here for both Sprint and Verizon. We cover both versions in this review, but there's no hardware difference other than color. The only differentiator is the software each carrier adds. The Curve 8330 has a built-in GPS, 2 megapixel camera with flash (improved over the GSM Curve) and it can shoot video too. The Sprint version has BlackBerry Maps and Sprint TV (Sprint Navigation is there too), while the Verizon version has VZ Navigator but no V Cast or BlackBerry Maps. Both feature that lovable BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard and excellent push email plus a music player with stereo Bluetooth A2DP support and a video player for locally stored clips.

                BlackBerry 8830 Now Verizon Wireless and Sprint customers can take their love affair with push email overseas. The BlackBerry 8830 works on Verizon's CDMA network in the US and in Europe and Asia on GSM networks for both voice and data. Just add Verizon's Global service, insert their SIM and hit the runway. The 8830 looks, feels and sounds much like its GSM-only near twin, the BlackBerry 8800. It has a large landscape color display, full QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0 and a MicroSD card slot. Like recent hip BBs, the 8830 even has a music and video player, though no camera, so it's corporate-safe.

                BlackBerry Pearl Want BlackBerry push email but hate the looks and bulk? Well, RIM now offers one of the smallest and sexiest phones on the market: the Pearl 8100. This phone aims to compete feature-wise with MS Smartphone, Palm and Nokia offerings as it brings multimedia to the BlackBerry platform. And it competes with the sleekest of fashion phones in the looks department. The Pearl does email alright, but it also has a 1.3MP camera, MP3 player, video player and more.

The 7130e has RIM's usual excellent push email, Bluetooth, tethering support over USB, a bright color display and the SureType thumb keyboard which combines two letters on a key.

                Palm Web OS

                Palm Pixi Palm's second webOS smartphone is available now on Sprint. The Pixi at first glance looks like a reborn Palm Centro with it's QWERTY bar design and tiny rubbery keys. But it runs the thoroughly modern webOS and features a capacitive multi-touch display just like its big brother the Palm Pre. The Pixi costs less than the Pre but it has some good specs including a 600MHz CPU, a GPS, EV-DO Rev. A and 8 gigs of flash storage. It comes with Sprint TV, Sprint Navigation and the rest of Sprint's services and it offers the same great cloud syncing to Exchange, Facebook and Google as the Pre. But is it worth saving $50 to get the Pixi instead of the Pre? Read our review to find out.

The Pre has all the design queues of an iPhone challenger with its capacitive touch screen, super-fun user interface and iPod masquerading feature for iTunes syncing. Happily, the Pre is up to the job and is as fresh, easy to use and fraught with possibility as was the iPhone when it came out. The Pre is currently exclusive to Sprint in the US, and it features EVDO Rev. A for fast data, a GPS, 3 megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, email with MS Exchange support, Sprint TV, Sprint Navigation and more.

                Samsung Intrepid Sprint's first Windows Mobile 6.5 touch screen phone, the Intrepid has a QVGA 320 x 240 pixel color touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard. It has a BlackBerry-like form and targets business users and messaging-oriented folks who need a good keyboard, MS Exchange support with Direct Push, texting and IM. It has a GPS, 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, WiFi and can roam on GSM networks abroad. This is a video review.

                HTC Touch Pro2 Sprint's flagship Windows Mobile Pro phone is here. Joining T-Mobile and eventually all carriers in the US, Sprint has upped the temptation to spend some serious bucks on a serious business phone with a decided fun side. The Touch Pro2 on Sprint delights us as just as much as the unlocked GSM and T-Mobile version did thanks to Sprint's fast EVDO data connection, the large 3.6" high resolution touch screen, capacious offset QWERTY slider keyboard and strong Office and Exchange support. Better yet, the Sprint version adds a 3.5mm stereo jack for those of you who don't think wired is tired.

It features a front-facing QWERTY keyboard, 320 x 320 pixel display, a 528MHz CPU and 512 megs of flash storage. The Treo Pro has WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP support and EVDO Rev. A for fast data over Sprint's network. It's got a good GPS and Sprint Navigation to keep you on the right track and a 2 megapixel camera.

The Pro has it all: GPS, Sprint TV, YouTube, email, serious web browsing with Opera, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP and an SDHC microSD card slot. It runs on a 528MHz processor with 288 megs of RAM and 512 megs of flash memory for storage. It sports a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, a 5 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile 6.1.

It features a VGA display, 4 gigs of storage, a fast CPU and lots of RAM. The excellent Opera 9.5 web browser and youtube are on board with EVDO Rev. A to back it up. There's also Sprint TV, Sprint Radio, a GPS and a good 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera. Sprint and HTC have answered most of our complaints with the original GSM Diamond, and this version has so far impressed us with its speed, stability and top notch business and multimedia features.

                Treo 800w It's been almost 2 years since the Treo 700wx came out on Sprint, and now we have its thoroughly modern replacement: the Treo 800w. This is the first Treo to sport the big four: GPS WiFi, EVDO Rev. A and Bluetooth. Looking like an old school Treo mixed with a dash of Centro, the 5 ounce 800w has come down in size while maintaining that excellent Palm keyboard. This Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional phone has a 320 x 320 display, a 2 megapixel camera, microSD card slot and a 333MHz processor with plenty of memory behind it.

                Sprint Touch by HTC The GSM Touch made quite a stir earlier this year with its new TouchFLO UI and special, gesture-friendly screen. Not only that, the PDA phone wasn't much bigger than a RAZR, had great looks and weighed only 4 ounces. It wasn't the brightest kid on the block though, thanks to a slow CPU and low memory. Sprint's version answers those shortcomings: their version has a 400MHz CPU, lots of memory (more than the powerhouse Mogul) and EVDO for fast data. Nice! This Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC phone has a fun side thanks to Sprint TV, Sprint Music Store and the usual good Windows Mobile multimedia support. A 2MP camera and Bluetooth 2.0 are on-board but no WiFi.

A promised later this year. The Mogul has WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash. It has a microSD card slot and comes with a 512 meg card.

                Palm Treo 700wx Though Verizon had an eight month exclusive on the first Windows Mobile Treo, Sprint makes it worth the wait by doubling memory (much needed) and including both DUN and push email support out of the box. The Treo 700wx runs Windows Mobile 5.1 on a 312MHz processor with 64 megs of RAM and 60 megs of available flash ROM. It has Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera and EVDO (Sprint's Power Vision) for fast data. Well worth a serious look if you've been hankering for a Windows Mobile Treo.

                Palm OS Smartphone Models

                Palm Centro (Sprint) Palm and Sprint are trying to start a quiet revolution: the first PDA phone with a touch screen to launch at $99. The Centro can handle most tasks its big brother the Treo 755p can, but it's slimmed down and more plastic-y (we aren't complaining about the slimming). The QWERTY keyboard is miniscule yet surprisingly usable and the 320 x 320 2.2" display is easy to read. This Palm OS device has EVDO for fast data, Bluetooth and a 1.3MP phone. It targets first time smartphone buyers, so there's no GPS, WiFi-- just a strong core of basics including strong PIM apps, an HTML web browser, email and MS Office doc support. Not bad for the price.

The improvements are more than skin deep with stronger Bluetooth, improved voice quality and better pictures from the 1.3 megapixel camera. The Treo 755p runs Palm OS 5 (Garnet) and is a CDMA phone with EVDO for Sprint. It has a 320 x 320 pixel display, Bluetooth 1.2. MiniSD card slot and a higher capacity battery than the Treo 680 and 750.

                HTC Snap Three out of four major US carriers now offer a version of this phone, but Sprint's the one that stuck with HTC's original name. This Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone is slim, light and good looking. It has a landscape QVGA non-touch screen display and a roomy QWERTY keyboard. Sprint 3G EVDO Rev. A is on board, along with a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a microSD card. If you like WinMo and dig QWERTY-bar phones, this one deserves a serious look.

                Samsung Ace (SPH-i325) The Samsung BlackJack comes to Sprint as the Ace. This a both a Sprint CDMA phone and a GSM world phone. The GSM works only overseas, not on US bands, so get this phone if you're a Sprint customer with world roaming needs, not because you wish to use GSM in the US. The Ace is a super-slim Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition smartphone with a front-facing QWERTY thumb keyboard and a landscape QVGA display. It runs on a responsive XScale 312MHz processor and has a microSD card slot for expansion. The Samsung Ace has a 1.3 megapixel camera that takes above average photos, EVDO for data and it supports Sprint TV. Sorry, no WiFi or GPS here.

                Motorola Q The brainy RAZR we've all been waiting for is finally here! The Q in no way resembles Motorola's past smartphones (and that's a good thing). It sports fresh RAZR-esque looks, fast and reliable technology inside and a vivid landscape display. This smartphone is available on Verizon's network in the US and it offers EVDO for 3G data speeds, good voice quality, Bluetooth and a QWERTY keyboard. Its 312MHz Intel XScale processor keeps it humming along nicely and it has a miniSD slot to save the 1.3MP camera's photos as well as any data you wish.
