HTC Touch Diamond review

HTC Touch Diamond, or HTC P3700 as it is officially called, is the top communicator phone of the company. It is first and foremost a fashion phone; HTC Diamond is not for techies or gadget fans, but for those users who want the coolest looking, most feature-packed device. It’s probably safe to say then that HTC’s flagship phone for 2008 will be competing not with other Windows Mobile handhelds, but with devices like iPhone and iPhone...

LG KM500 review

LG KM500 is the first music phone of the company and the first product from their new “M” line. According to LG, the KM 500 is supposed to possess superior sound quality and stand out from other similar devices. You notice that at least some of this is true right away, as KM500 is the first phone from LG which has a 3.5 mm audio jack for connecting headphones without the need for any adapters. Regrettably, it is located at the bottom...

Sony Ericsson R300 & R306 radio phones review

The R series from Sony Ericsson consists of two phones – namely R300 and 306 – which can be used as FM/AM radio receivers and are mainly targeted towards developing countries (seeing how FM broadcasts aren’t available in certain regions of the world). R300, the first of the two models, is a simple-looking candybar phone built on an old platform that is miles behind the A100 both in looks and functionality. Sony Ericsson...

Motorola Zine ZN5 review

Motorola Zine ZN5 is the first cameraphone of the company with a built-in 5 megapixel Kodak camera. It is made in a classical monoblock form-factor and has a distinguishing design that tells you right away you’re looking at a Motorola phone. MotoZine ZN5 design Motorola ZN5 is rather large and its powerful camera only adds to that, protruding noticeably from the back of the phone. The design is overall unusual and quite attractive....

LG Secret KF750/KF755 review

LG Secret KF750 is the third model in LG’s Black Label series and the successor to Chocolate and Shine fashion phones. We were watching all the LG KF750 Secret pre-launch hype, with early KF750 leaks and official LG KF750 Black Label Series 3 pre-announcement leading up to official unveiling of LG Secret a bit sceptically. We know that Black Label series phones are THE major sellers for LG, but for us, mobile geeks, it’s just...

Right after introducing Samsung SGH-G800 – a GSM camera phone with an optical zoom – Samsung released its successor, a slider marked Samsung SGH-G810.

Samsung G800 is a feature camerphone with Samsung’s own OS, while Samsung G810 is a Symbian S60 smartphone which happens to have a very good good camera, and tons...

Samsung Soul U900 review

Every company has a different opinion on how a fashion phone should look. Samsung, for one, seems to think that it has to be a big slider phone with a lot of metallic elements and a touchpad, as well as rich functions. We are used to the fact that usually the sliders from Samsung are meant for women. It’s a different case with the Samsung Soul U900, however: it has a solid, serious look, not to mention the impressive size (although...

Samsung i780 review

Samsung i780 can be considered the first communicator of the company with a full QWERTY keyboard, as its predecessors such as i320 and i600 were built on Windows Mobile 5 smartphone platform and aren’t considered communicator phones. Samsung SGH-i780, unlike the two previous models, also has a touchscreen, which coupled with its QWERTY keyboard gives the maximum possibilities for entering data. Keyboard The buttons of the keyboard are...

Sony Ericsson G900 review

G900 is a new product from Sony Ericsson built on the UIQ platform. What’s interesting about this model is that it looks very similar to an ordinary cell phone, which is uncommon for smartphones of the company. There’s no QWERTY keyboard or the Jog Dial on the G900; when I gave it to my colleague, he even mistook the phone for a K530i. The reason for such an unusual design is the company’s intention to sell the Sony Ericsson G900 as a...
