    After comparing the Sony Xperia Z1 with two of the leading Android smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One, we decided not to neglect the Windows Phone fans out there. Whether they want to switch to the Xperia Z1 from the Lumia 925, or some of you want to decide between getting one of these two devices, this is for your, and not only, viewing pleasure. The conclusion is the hardest thing to draw: if you’re a fain of Android, or Windows Phone, there’s little chance anybody can convince you on the contrary. However, if you’re looking for your first phone, you have to first ...

    After previously looking at the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Samsung Galaxy S 4, today we're leveling things off a bit, comparing it to another aluminum-and-glass phone, another classic, the HTC One. If, in the case of the S 4, they were each other's complete opposites on the outside, with similarities on the inside, when it comes to the Z1 and the One, it's kind of the other way around. We’re looking at a fresh phone versus a six-seven month old device, even if a flagship. There is a slight difference between the two in terms of performance, but, when it comes to the camera, the Z1 is better. ...

    The iPhone 5s may be getting all the attention these days, but there's a bevy of multicolored iPhones that deserve some words of their own. Fortunately, we're dedicated wordsmiths around these parts, and we're pretty keen on comparison videos as well. We unboxed the iPhone 5c last week, and in the midst of flying bubble-wrap and packing tape torn asunder, we promised a followup series of features and reviews. While the latter segment is still being worked on, we've already managed to churn out a few comparisons, and you're looking at the latest of the bunch. Besides the manifold salient ...

    In this Sony Xperia Z1 vs Samsung Galaxy S 4 video we're taking a look at the similarities and differences between the two flagships. One has just been launched, and we already met it in person both in Berlin and in our labs, with the occasion of our unboxing, while the other is a respectable member of the elite Android phones money can buy today. There are a lot more similarities between the two than you'd think; there are also just as many differences between them. The Z1 has the highest megapixel count on an Android phone today, but is it enough to compete with one of the best Android ...

    If you're on the hunt for a top-of-the-line Android smartphone in the latter half of 2013, you've got a solid set of options. For fans of lightweight, fully-featured pocket computers, the Galaxy S 4 from Samsung is probably a solid bet. For those who prize build quality and aesthetics more highly than expandability, the HTC One is a better fit. And for those who value a feature-loaded experience on one-of-a-kind (but not at all outlandish) hardware, we're quickly learning that the LG G2 serves that niche pretty well. Our full review of the G2 will be up shortly to further examine its ...

    We've taken the wraps off LG's newest Android flagship, the brand-new G2, and we're already well on the way to getting a full review to your eager eyeballs. But before that drops, we thought you'd like to take a gander at how the G2 compares to an Android flagship from another manufacturer. You know, just for kicks. This time around, the role of The Other will be played by the familiar faces at HTC, whose One smartphone captured our hearts earlier this year with its excellent build quality and rock-solid software. How will the more-than-a-smartphone, not-quite-a-phablet G2 fare against ...

    After a short hiatus and an acquisition by none other than Google, Motorola has hit the market full force over the summer. In July, it announced three new Droids for Verizon: Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini. And at the beginning of August, it announced the Moto X for all major US carriers, as well as US Cellular. Two of those phones are in our labs, the Droid Ultra and Moto X. Naturally, we put the two under the microscope, together. Be sure to watch the comparison video below to see which of the two Motorola smartphones comes out the victor!

    We've reviewed the HTC 8XT and unboxed the Samsung ATIV S Neo - so even the occasional Pocketnow reader will know what comes next. That's right: as we continue to put our ATIV S Neo through the review ringer, we need to throw it head-to-head against the device that beat it to Big Yellow. In the below video, the new Samsung "high-ender" meets HTC's budget-phone-in-flagship-clothing for a showdown the likes of which you're not likely to see anywhere else. Why, you ask? Well, we'd like to believe it's because of our hard-hitting, incisive comparison style and sweet, slick cinematography ... ...

    Shortly after meeting him in person for the first time at IFA 2012, I sat in a Berlin bar with Managing Editor Anton D. Nagy and we talked about our hopes for the future of smartphones. He'd just given me a gander at his prize Nokia 808 PureView, and despite its bulk and its dated software platform, I wanted it. More precisely: I wanted a Windows Phone version of it. Fast forward to MWC 2013. Anton and I were again sharing a couple end-of-the-day drinks, this time in a hotel room in Barcelona, and talking about our expectations for that show on a special-edition episode of the Pocketnow ...

    Last week, we brought you a comparison video featuring two of the most talked-about devices in mobile: the HTC One and Google's new Moto X. We made use of the Google Play edition of the former to highlight the differences between stock Android and ... Motorola-style stock Android, but some of ya'll didn't like that. "You should be comparing OEM build to OEM build," some of you said. Well, we'd already thought of that. Because we knew you'd be clamoring for a video pitting the Moto X against that other Android flagship. You know, the one that's busily selling millions around the globe? And ...

    Big is never big enough, especially when you're a smartphone manufacturer. Just when we think we've seen it all, another manufacturer comes along to announce an even bigger smartphone. Enter the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The Z Ultra, although a look-alike to its smaller sibling, the Xperia Z, is a different beast entirely. It has a 6.4-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 chipset, and the footprint only a giant could love. We put it up against the Galaxy Note II. Which one comes out on top in this behemoth battle? Watch the video below to find out for yourself! And be sure to sound off in the ...

    You asked for it, and no amount of pithy pre-roll pedantry is going to keep you from the magic. So ignore all this text and hop on down to our newest comparison featuring the latest and greatest deluxe smartphones from two major manufacturers: Moto X vs HTC One (Google Play Edition) is here! Or, if you're not the type to blow past carefully-crafted intro text all willy-nilly, here's a little pre-comparison scoop on what we'll be taking a look at today. As you know, we went hands-on with the Moto X yesterday at Google's NYC launch event, and it was awesome. Shorty thereafter, following a ...

    Apple is still, by and large, the leader of the tablet space. Its tablets far outsell any of the competitors' and generally turn a higher profit margin for the company. The iPad mini, however, is a different story. Its specifications aren't … great, and Apple took a hit on profit margins to make the tablet. Still, the tablet has done quite well, helping Apple dominate the smaller side of the tablet realm, as well. However, Google and ASUS, who teamed up to make last year's wildly popular (at least among the tech crowd) Nexus 7, have stepped up their game. Last week, Google announced the ...

    The HTC 8XT. It's Sprint's first Windows Phone in literally years, and it's one of the only HTC devices in the carrier's lineup. So say you're stuck choosing between this and the much-ballyhooed HTC One. Besides software, are there really that many differences between the high-end offerings from Microsoft and Google on the Now Network? Is there really enough disparity here to justify a video expedition titled "HTC 8XT vs HTC One?" In a word: yes. Because despite its flagship-esque model number, the 8XT actually more resembles a midrange phone than a high-end halo device. Think HTC 8S meets ...

    The successor to the original Nexus 7 may have been one of the most highly-anticipated devices for tablet lovers this year. Last year's 7-inch Nexus was a bargain, and this year's could only be better, right? Google announced it last week, in all its affordable, compact glory. And it seems Google and ASUS had their ears to the ground, listening to the complaints from users about the original model. Did they get this year's Nexus 7 right? Is it a worth successor to the original? Watch to find out, as these two wallet-friendly siblings go toe to toe!
