ProDesign, fast, lots of apps, fairly easy to use

ConsBattery life

Recently that exciting time of year came around again and it was time for me to upgrade. I'm very picky with phones and usually it takes months of research until I decide upon a new handset, but this year the decision was fairly easy. I soon narrowed it down to two candidates, the iPhone 4 and...

ProLooks good, lots of features and stylish

ConsPoor battery power, phone calls are hard work

This has been my phone for almost a year now. It’s probably pointless me talking about my contract deal as this has nothing to with the physical phone and having got it as part of a business contract, it was not the consumer price, which is probably a fair bit more. What I will say, however, is...

A phone that has been around in the UK since October 2010, But still in the same league as any smartphone out there today!

My contract with virgin ended this month and I decided to look for a better phone than my old nokia. So I explored the possibility of getting a smart phone. I wasn’t keen on the iphone but wanted something similar, so looked at android phones and found the htc desire hd online. I have always...

I've had my HTC DESIRE HD for a little over 4 months now and have refrained from writing a review until now; I should think that I have now tried out every feature thoroughly and more so. I recieved it on free upgrade from Orange and it was on the Froyo (Android 2.2) OS. For the sake of this...

Now I’ve gone from a smartphone to an Android powered HTC Desire HD. Wow. I didn’t realise quite what I was missing out on. Sure the BlackBerry was good, but this is just better. I do miss the qwerty keyboard but this phone was easy to setup, is easy to use and has more features than you can...

OK! So I wanted to be part of the smartphone world but with a budget of £100 I knew this was going to be a challenge to get something that would make me smile with the gleam of a child at Christmas.

I bought this phone around 2 weeks ago, and although there are some negative points that I will go into, these are only minor. Firstly the phone as an object. One of the first things that everyone seems to say when they see it is, Wow, it's big. Which it is. It has a 4.3 inch screen which is...

I have used the phone for a few months now and it's by far the best phone I've ever used! First impression: Let's start from the beginning. When you first open the box, the first thing you see is the magnificent 4,3" display. It's the most beautiful thing in the world. At first it did feel quite...

“My Favourite Phone, So far”

ProGood Quality Camera, Smoothly runs

ConsBad battery life, No inside camera

I bought this phone after spilling juice on my last phone (Samsung galaxy ace - oops!) and was happy with it! It runs very smoothly without any freezing or hiccups and is generally pretty fast. The screen is a good size, being not to big and not to small, making texting so much easier - specially...

I first got this phone on my 18th birthday as I was asking for a new phone, with my previous phone being the samsung jet there would obviously be huge changes for me. At first look at this phone I loved the square shape of it, with the top speaker adding a sort of elegance to it. Once I turned...
