HTC Desire 616 Review

HTC first got into the game of making dual-SIM phones with last year's dual-SIM HTC One (M7), which was followed by the dual-SIM HTC One Max and HTC One (M8). However, the company has understood that dual-SIM phones become much more attractive when they are pitched at lower price points, and that understanding has led to the dual-SIM HTC Desire 616 which promises the utility of dual SIM card slots, octa-cor ...

HTC Desire 616 Unboxing [Video]

This week I've got a pretty interesting device from HTC, the Desire 616. This is the company's entry-level dual-SIM smartphone that is available for an attractively low price, but it does have the distinction of being the first octa-core smartphone to arrive from HTC. Its specifications are strictly on the low end of the midrange - it's powered by an 8-core Mediatek MT6592 chipset clocked at 1.4GHz, it has ...

Nokia Lumia 635 Quick Review

I had great expectations for the Lumia 635, the LTE variant of the Lumia 630. After coming to the conclusion that Nokia had taken a misstep last year with the Lumia 625 in terms of achieving the perfect price-to-features ratio that had been done with the Lumia 620, I really wanted the Lumia 635 to be Nokia's Moto G - a phone that I would be able to confidently recommend to anyone seeking a smartphone on a b ...

HTC Desire 816 Review

Another day, another phablet. Just a couple days after reviewing the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra, I got my hands on another mid-range huge phone, the HTC Desire 816.

There's a 5.5 inch display, quad-core proce ...

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Review

Phablets were huge last year, quite literally in some cases, with manufacturers like Nokia, Samsung, HTC and LG, all releasing a phone with a 6-inch display. Sony also had an entry in this market: the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which featured high-end specs (it was the first device with a Snapdragon 800 processor) in a slim, waterproof form-factor. But it was admittedly a premium device with a premium pr ...

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Unboxing [Video]

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is a decidedly mid-range 6-inch smartphone from Sony, aimed at bringing the Z Ultra's form factor to a lower price point. In fact, it shares the same sort of relationship with the Z Ultra as Nokia's Lumia 1320 shares with the higher-end 1520; it even packs in many of the same hardware specifications as the Lumia 1320. A quad-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU powers this device ...

Nokia Lumia 635 Unboxing [Video]

The Nokia Lumia 635 is the single-SIM LTE-capable variant of the Lumia 630, and this week I've got it in for review. As Nokia's new entry-level 4G smartphone, it directly succeeds the Lumia 625 while undercutting what the Lumia 625 cost at launch; otherwise, it is more or less similar to the Lumia 630 in every aspect other than the fact that it only has one SIM card slot and it supports LTE in addition to t ...

Moto E Review

Motorola had stuck to a very clever strategy lately. The Moto X is a great phone that's upper mid-range, while on the other end, the Moto G is an affordable smartphone that's incredible value-for-money. Following that, Motorola decided to go even deeper into the entry-level segment of the market, bringing us the brand new, Moto E. In developing markets like India, there's a lot of competition in the low-end ...
