Blackberry Z30 Review

blackberry-z30-1
While Blackberry's newest flagship phone no longer carries the same high-profile as other manufacturer's top-of-the-line offering, that doesn't mean the Blackberry Z30 is something to immediately pass up.  Or does it?
Design
In terms of design, the Z30 looks like any premium smartphone, with rounded corners, predominantly black shell, silver accents, and soft-touch back.  Far as we can tell, there's really no distinguishing feature that makes it a "Blackberry" as opposed to some other handset, although it's stylish and comfortable all the same.

HTC One Max Review

HTC-One-Max-x
Remember when the Galaxy Note first hit the scene and some people complained there's no way anyone will want a phone that big?  Yeah, time has proven them wrong.  In fact, the big-screen smartphone market has evolved into a very profitable niche. HTC made their official entry into giant screens with the HTC One Max.  Like many handsets in the same category, it comes with premium pricing to go with that super-sized screen real estate.  Is it worth maxing out another card for?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Review

Samsung-Galaxy-S4-Mini-1
We're huge fans of the Samsung Galaxy S4 -- it is, hands down, one of the best premium smartphones in the market today.  The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini takes the S4, shrinks it down to a more compact size, and trades in the high-end guts for a selection of midrange components. SEE SPECS BELOW...

Sony Xperia ZL Review

xperiazl1
One of the most powerful smartphones in Sony's current roster, the Sony Xperia ZL is packed with high-end hardware and a whole load of features.  Is it worth the price of entry, though? SEE SPECS BELOW.....

LG Spectrum 2 Review


spectrum2
While it's not quite the powerhouse that is the Nexus 4 or the Optimus G, the LG Spectrum 2 is a quality device from the Korean manufacturer.  Suffice to say, this is one of the best offerings at its price range. SEE SPECS BELOW...

Pantech Discover Review

pantechdiscover1
The Pantech Discover is, hands-down, one of the best values in Android smartphones today.  Packing excellent design, quality hardware and good specs, it's a heck of catch for the $49.99 asking price (two-year agreement with AT&T). See SPECS..

Napster was born on June 1, 1999, in Shawn Fanning's Northeastern University dorm room, and music was forever revolutionized.

The service pioneered peer-to-peer file sharing, meaning it allowed users to transfer files directly between each other. Prior to Napster, downloading music off the internet was unreliable.
