Sprint currently has two powerful, high-end Android phones available for sale at the $199 price point: the Epic Touch 4G (essentially a Galaxy S II but with a larger display) and the Motorola Photon 4G. Both devices offer dual-core CPUs with a gigabyte of RAM, plus WiMax 4G connectivity on Sprint. The display on the Photon 4G is higher resolution with 960x540 pixels, but the Super AMOLED Plus display of the Epic 4G Touch is a sight to behold, thanks to fantastic contrast. In this video, we compare the hardware and software of the Epic Touch 4G and the Photon 4G, plus compare web browsing ...

Today at Google I/O the next version of Android, that is 2.2, was made official. The biggest story here is speed (oh, and a little piece of software called Flash 10.1). Google claims that the web browser of 2.2 is the fastest of any mobile device. They are also promising 2-5x faster system speed, which we're all in favor of. Additionally, there is better Exchange integration, new ways to manage apps, and a built in WiFi tethering app. Here are a few screenshots comparing the two systems. You'll notice modest changes: new menu items in some programs, an updated home screen (which OEMs are ...

The Samsung Omnia 7 sports 8GB of internal memory while the LG Optimus 7 has 16GB, both being NAND storages opposed to other Windows Phone 7 devices that use microSD cards for internal storage. While either of them will be faster compared to other microSD-powered Windows Phone 7 smartphones, the LG Optimus 7 wins over the Samsung Omnia 7 in both our internet page loading and game loading speed tests. Check out the video below to see what the margins are when it comes to both internet page loading times as well as launching Xbox Live games:

If you caught Daniel Webster's series of videos and final review on the Samsung Galaxy S, you were treated with an abundance of detail about this new device. Sporting a 4" Super AMOLED with a 1 GHz processor, the Galaxy is equipped to impress. However, the Samsung Galaxy S is not alone in the 4"+ screen size market. I've decided to match the Samsung Galaxy S up against my beloved HTC EVO. The EVO has been my primary phone for a little over a month now, and I've been nothing but impressed. Over the next few videos, I will put the Galaxy side-by-side with the EVO and run a few comparison ...

So far we've run through the unboxing of the Samsung Continuum, our hardware overview, and our look at the software. This time we take a different approach and compare the speed of the Continuum against one of its close relatives, the Samsung Galaxy S I9000. In this video we will run through a browser test, a gameplay test and comparison, as well as a YouTube load time test. The two devices share the same 1GHz Hummingbird processor. But, the Continuum clocks in slightly lower in the RAM category with 336MB of RAM, whereas the I9000 maintains a solid 512MB of RAM. Be sure to press play ...

With the upcoming announcement of Toshiba's Snapdragon-based ]TG01 at Mobile World Congress, it's natural for us to compare this new device with one that we already know. In this case, it's the HTC Touch HD. Let's see how they compare: Screen... Touch HD: 3.8" with 800x480 resolution (246ppi) TG01: 4.1" with 800x480 resolution (228ppi) Comment: If you exclude devices like the HTC Athena, the TG01 has the largest screen of any handset we've seen to date. Because the resolution is the same across these two devices but the TG01 has a larger screen, there are fewer pixels per square inch. To ...

The HTC HD7S on AT&T is very similar to the older HD7 on T-Mobile, however there are some significant differences and improvements. As with most Windows Phone 7 devices, the HTC HD7S is running a 1Ghz Snapdragon QSD8250 processor with 576Mb RAM, 512MB ROM, and 16Gb of storage. The 4.3" Super LCD screen has a 480x800 pixel resolution and 4 point multi-touch. You've also got the usual WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, Assisted GPS, 5Mp camera with dual LED flash, 1230mAh battery, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, and a Micro-USB 2.0 port. The device dimensions are 68 x 122 x 11.2 millimeters, and it ...

With three days left until the release date of T-Mobile's HD2, we want to show you the differences between the T-Mobile version and the international version of the HD2. Size: T-Mobile HD2: 122x67x11mm / 4.803x2.637x0.433in HTC HD2: 120.5x67x11mm / 4.744x2.637x0.433in The T-Mobile HD2 is 1.5mm / 0.059in taller than the International HD2, a difference which in my book is negligible and I'm sure you'll find it too, in case you happen to own an international HD2, so no need to be affraid, it won't stand out compared to it. Both devices weigh 157 grams (5.54 ounces) with the battery attached ...

Some of you have said that it's not a fair comparison to benchmark different devices to determine which one is faster if their processors don't run at the same speed. I've made the argument that's the primary reason why benchmarking utilities exist: to compare dissimilar products. For those of you who have wanted to see how two devices with the same clock-speed compare, I've got just the video for you! The HTC Desire HD versus the T-Mobile myTouch 4G, both with 1GHz processors, but very different resolutions. Which will win? Will the huge screen on the Desire HD slow it down in the ...

In our second set of speed tests, we wanted to find out just how fast Sprint's 4G is compared to T-Mobile's HSPA 3G. This video answers that with a side-by-side comparison. In the video below I use the FCC Test app, which is free in the Market (but crashes after running the test more than a couple times). Running this app, setting your server to the closest one to you and the speed in kbps, run the test a few times and report your network and speeds in the comments below!

We've been getting a lot of requests for a comparison between the Galaxy S 2 (review) and the HTC Sensation, and here it is! Both of these devices represent the cutting edge for smartphones: they have plenty of RAM, dual-core CPUs, special screens, and custom interfaces that are well designed. In terms of pricing and availability, the Sensation is coming to the US as the T-Mobile Sensation 4G and will sell for around $199, but right now you can import one for about $750. The Galaxy S 2 has yet to be announced for the US, but we think it's coming to AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon later this ...

Two of the hottest phones that run on Verizon's 4G LTE network right now are the HTC Thunderbolt and LG Revolution. Both have similar spec sheets with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and they're also both priced at $249 on Verizon, but in terms of performance, hardware and software, there are many differences. In this comparison video we cover web browsing, speed benchmarks, hardware, software, HD video recording, boot-up time, and more. Stick around to the end of the video to see the HD video samples.
