Following up the Galaxy S III is hard to do. Samsung’s flagship of yesteryear sold wildy, selling more than 50 million units in less than a year. Just as updating the iPhone is tough for Apple, updating the Galaxy S is hard for Samsung. Rather than opt for a near-total redesign like the last two updates, Samsung has decided to incrementally improve upon the GSIII, at least on the hardware side, much like the jump from the iPhone 4 to 4s; what you get is the Galaxy S4. With stiff competition from the likes of the HTC One, is this “small” upgrade enough to keep Samsung on top of the Android heap? Read on to find out.

I’ve been waiting for the Nexus 4 for a while. Even though the Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy Nexus (the previous Nexus device) over the summer definitely made it faster, it still wasn’t quite as refreshing as a new device altogether. I played with the iPhone for over a month for its review, but I was ready to move back to Android, and stock Android is the only way to go, in my opinion. Does the Nexus 4 satisfy my tech needs? Is the lack of LTE a deal-breaker? Read on after the break to find out.
If you haven’t heard of the Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones, it’s best you read on.

This fall, Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, and many complained that it was not enough of a refresh from the iPhone 4s to make the phone desirable. Are the critics right? Is the iPhone 5 a worthy successor to the previous iPhone 4s? Does the iPhone retain its popular position as “best smartphone on the market”? Read on to find out.
The original Motorola Atrix on AT&T, announced at CES in 2011, was extremely impressive to say in the least, with its dual-core processor, HSPA+ data, and screen resolution above what most phones had in those days. Later came the Atrix 2, hoping to give you all the goodies of a high-end phone with the price of a mid-end device. Fast forward almost two years, and the Motorola Atrix HD has bested its predecessors in every way shape and form – at least on paper. Priced at the same price as the Atrix 2, $99.99, it certainly won’t squeeze your wallet too painfully, and matches the HTC One X and Galaxy S III spec for spec. Is the Motorola Atrix HD worth your Ben Franklin? Read on to find out.
Hello, my name is Alex and I like iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system. I use the platform daily on both an iPhone and iPad. As a heavy iOS user/junkie and a “Teenage Techie,” I sought to answer a seemingly simple question: How would I like Android 4.1/4.2 “Jelly Bean,” the latest mobile OS from Google? To answer this I would have to ask myself: What do I like? What don’t I like? What do I miss from iOS? And finally, which platform would I like to have on my next smartphone? Join me after the break as I reveal my findings.
Android tablets have always had a problem. That is, they were as (if not more) expensive as the iPad and did less. Enter the Nexus 7.

Made for Google’s Play Store, and costing as low as $200, the Nexus 7 aims to be an inexpensive, content-focused device that people will love to take with them everywhere. Does it achieve this not-so-simple goal? Read on to find out.
