Large screen, compact phone
Samsung didn't exactly catch us by surprise with the Galaxy S4. Pretty much all the hardware improvements like the faster processor, better camera, and 5" 1080p screen were expected. Samsung simply had to have those in the Galaxy S4 if it wanted its product to be relevant in 2013. However, it's the flawless implementation of all the features that makes the Galaxy S4 the superb smartphone that it is. Design-wise, the latest Samsung flagship is nothing special.
Stunning screen, Superfast processor, Great camera
Make no mistake - the Samsung Galaxy S4 is far, far more than a Galaxy S3 'S' - Samsung may be copying Apple according to some people, but it's not as brazen as the Cupertino brand in flogging the exact same design with a slightly uprated processor and calling it a new phone.
The Galaxy S4 is a great, great device in its own right, re-inventing what it means to own a brilliant smartphone in a number of ways.
More serious and stylish look
While the Samsung Galaxy S4's exterior might be its Achilles' heel, we can't blame Samsung for sticking with the Galaxy S brand image it spent so much resources trying to build (that phone sold over 50 million units too, so being associated with it cannot be too bad).
With the sheer number of excellent flagships to choose from, if you are looking for the best smartphone, you had it better than ever.
Stunning 5-inch Full HD screen
The Samsung Galaxy S4 might not look that different or have that one killer feature that sinks the competition, but it's a worthy successor to the Samsung Galaxy S3.
It's a true high-end powerhouse and undeniably one of the best phones on the market right now, albeit one that will relies a little too heavily on brand appeal and past successes rather than innovation and eye-catching design. Yes, it might not be the most stylish handset on the market, but nor is it a dog.
Huge display in a not so huge phone, excellent camera
The Samsung Galaxy line of smartphones is a juggernaut; like the iPhone, the next generation will sell well based simply on brand loyalty, trust and familiarity. Even so, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a lot to offer, and though I wasn't overwhelmed with love for the Galaxy S III, the S4 is seriously tempting me. The superb camera and related features, comfortable feel in the hand, replaceable battery and software like Smart Stay and Air Gesture are hard to give up once you've used them.
A brilliant phone in almost every way
As we type this we have the SGS3 and the SGS4 on our desk. While, superficially, there's really not a lot of difference between the two, to hold, they couldn't feel more different. We really like the new, more square-feeling SGS4. At the back, we prefer the SGS3 aesthetically, although the case design of the new phone is nicer - albeit still plastic.
There are a stack more options here.
Clear and familiar menu
W ith the C2-00, Nokia has added a neat and very simple Dual-SIM cell phone to the portfolio. The Nokia C2-00 phone, available for only 55 Euros, has a clear and familiar menu and has standard functionalities such as Bluetooth and an audio recorder. The buttons are clearly lit up so that you can see them well in the dark.
Great build quality
Priced at Rs 2700, the Nokia C2-00 offers great build quality, decent design, and a relatively pleasant UI. A music player and email app are some of its strong points. Moreover, the hot-swappable SIM card slot is a unique feature, though it has to be said that very few will find it useful. The phone has its shortcomings, but the reasonable pricing makes it a logical purchase even if you are not looking for a dual-SIM mobile.

Most powerful Android smartphone on AT&T
The ATRIX 4G is the most powerful Android smartphone on AT&T right now, thanks to its NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. In my tests, though, it's not the fastest. It's unfortunate that the 4G marketing term paired with the device's support for AT&T's HSPA+ network has done nothing in the way of actual performance changes. For that reason, it's certainly not the fastest data device on AT&T's network. Similarly, I wasn't impressed by its call quality.
great HD playback
The real issue one has is whether you evaluate the Motorola Atrix as just a phone, in which case it's a stellar piece of equipment that is definitely a suitable contender for your cash, if only because it has one of the best batteries on an operating system that is notorious for guzzling juice.
Or do you evaluate the Atrix as a sign of things to come, bearing in mind the potential of the Lap Dock if other manufacturers follow suit?
Class leading high res screen
As a standalone phone, the Motorola Atrix competes well against the dual-core Android competition due to its high res screen, unique fingerprint scanner, great battery life and comfortable form factor, though is let down by a mediocre camera, some unnecessary interface tweaks and limited video support. As such, it rather depends which you prioritise. Add in its dock accessories, though, and it shines out brightly.
Innovative laptop dock
On its own, the $199 Motorola Atrix 4G is among the top phones in AT&T's lineup. Its bright and crisp screen, powerful processor, and fingerprint reader mark it as a remarkable Android phone. Likewise, the $499 Laptop Dock shows real innovation on the part of Motorola, even if its keys are on the small side. Also, the $189 Entertainment Dock, when coupled with the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, makes for a compelling 10-foot experience.
Powerhouse of a device in a sleek package
The Atrix 4G might be our favorite Android device that we've tested. It's got specs that run laps around most other devices, which should make most potential purchasers feel a little safer about laying out cash for a smartphone right now. We're not saying the phone doesn't have its issues -- and we're really not big fans of Motorola's skinning -- but this is a powerhouse of a device in a sleek package, and Android's openness to customizing means you'll be able to turn it into a phone that...
Unique webtop functionality
The Motorola Atrix 4G is one of the finest phones ever created. It's well-designed, with a sleek form factor and smooth metal backing. The hardware inside is cutting edge, with performance so fast you'll find yourself using your phone more and more - and your notebook less and less. That's one unforseen aspect of having such a fast device: it's so nice to use that you simply use it more.
Good optical trackpad
The Samsung Ch@t 335 is no doubt inspired by RIM's BlackBerry line of QWERTY candybars, for which it seems there will always be market. It lacks many BlackBerry features, most notably - a fully functional smart OS and a decent browser, but its similar design and welcoming price could lure many.Moreover, the phone offers a pretty decent set of connectivity options with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM radio, so you get what you pay for, and even a bit more.
Superior metallic frame which provides it an elegant look.
The phone is tagged at Rs. 5,800 which initially appears to be good charge. The unsorted question is whether it is suitable for heavy-text users or the 24/7 social-networking addicts. If you are ok with the average multimedia as well as camera support then the Chat 335 truly deserves your purchase. It is not the finest, but clearly falls into worth-the-money category.
Superslim quality feel
The Samsung Ch@t 335 is a budget BlackBerry-beater. With a full QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad, it's ideal for texting, emailing, facebooking or tweeting. We love its superslim quality feel that fools people into thinking you've bought a high-end handset. The phone comes with Wi-Fi, an FM radio, music player and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It can accept memory cards up to 8GB. The camera may be little more than a toy, but everything else about the S3350 Chat shouts quality.
Very good battery life
While it could not impress us with features, the Samsung C3530 is above all a calling device. That is why its calling performance was absolutely crucial. Luckily, our callers reported hearing us at great quality and very loud. On our side, we found the sound from the earpiece loud and clean. Voices sounded natural and overall call quality was one of the best things about the C3530.
Construction is quite solid and durable
The C3530 is quite stylish to look at. It has a sleek and streamlined design. The construction is quite solid and durable. This design profile is combined with a set of advanced features. The handset has number of features ranging from the basic personal management ones to the social network integration. The C3530 packs good interface and it offers the multi-tasking option.
Brushed metal finish gives a good look
As it does not really impress us with its features, the Samsung C3530 is mostly a calling device, and we have to admit its calling performance was very good. Callers reported hearing us at great quality and loud, and we also found the sound from the earpiece loud and clean. Call quality is definitely one of the best things about the C3530.
Summary:This is an amazing phone worth getting if you want inexpensive fast nation wide coverage 4g! and many other great features in your phone i say if you have metro and you have 4g get this phone! Also if your on sprint t-mobile at@t or verizon i hope you like getting ripped off.
The E73 Mode is essentially the E72 with T-Mobile branding. I was a bit disappointed with how cheap the plastic softkey buttons felt, as I've typically had good experiences with the build quality of Nokia's E-Series devices.
My biggest gripe with the E73 Mode is its aging operating system. It feels sluggish, and I've seen feature phones with more compelling user interfaces than the simple menu-based interface that the E73 Mode offers.
the 4.5-ounce E73 felt solid and substantial--like a real piece of technology, not a plastic toy.
Nokia’s utilitarian E73 Mode is a strong, low-priced alternative to the BlackBerry phones currently on the market. Nokia’s utilitarian E73 Mode is a strong, low-priced alternative to the BlackBerry phones currently on the market. Palm’s sprightly Pixi Plus gets a speed boost with Wi-Fi connectivity and Verizon’s fast 3G network. With a gorgeous AMOLED display and an excellent camera, the pricey Samsung Behold II will appeal to multimedia junkies with deep pockets.
The phone can also shoot VGA video at 15 fps and there's a flash that's useful for close range shooting.
If you're a Nokia S60 person and want a QWERTY smartphone, the Nokia E73 Mode is likely to please. And if you want a candy bar form factor smartphone with a keyboard but dislike BlackBerry phones, the E73 is also a hot pick. But for those who just need a QWERTY phone and don't care about the smart part, the E73 will require a more expensive data plan than T-Mobile's QWERTY feature phones like the Samsung Gravity.
This is a phone that is great to feel and handle and does a lot to stand out by raising the bar from the Nokia E71.
All-in-all the Nokia E73 Mode is a great phone for the business oriented user. There is not much that can be said against the Nokia E73 Mode. It surpasses its cousin, the Nokia E71, and with the upgrade to the operating system it keeps up with the newer apps and widgets that are cropping up in the market today.
From the outside, it’s nearly flawless.
Nokia’s E73 Mode is essentially a spruced up version of the E72, repackaged and sold through T-Mobile. Given the uncanny similarities, large parts of this review borrow directly from our earlier E72 review, but with pains taken to point out the differences between the two.
