for the Google Pixel:
Go Google! Pixel XL
I've had this for 2 days. So this first review is for initial impressions: PROS: - Very Fast Processor. Quick & Fluid. - Battery stamina excellent - Excellent build quality - Camera is very impressive especially in low light - Speaker is very clear and adequately loud with zero distortion. - Rear fingerprint sensor is quick and reliable CONS: - The display is beautiful but can't see it outside in the sunlight. - This phone is very slippery. A case is a must - Can't add windows to the ...

for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus:
iPhone 6 Plus Nightmare
This review is an update. My 128GB iPhone 6 Plus turned into a brick on the 28th day of owning it. The phone powers itself off randomly and presents a red screen followed by the Apple logo and back again. After my 3rd tech support call with Apple they finally agreed to replace the phone. Having done a little search on the web I found that this is becoming a known problem. There are youtube videos showing it as ...

for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (CDMA):
Amazing Phone
Take this review witha grain of salt since I've only had the Note 3 for 3 days. Pro's: Amazing large crystal clear and bright display. Excellent battery life. Very quick and responsive. Android 4.3 New capabilities with the S Pen. Con's: Honestly the only con is that I can't find Sprint 4G signal in Beaverton, OR or surrounding areas. This is a deal breaker so I am returning the phone to Sprint and picking the Note 3 up at Verizon. Please note ...

for the Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon):
Better Than I Expected
Pros: Large clear display Very impressive battery life Pretty fast and responsive Speaker phone is loud and clear Earpiece volume is above average Cons: Speech to text doesn't work using bluetooth headset. I've tried the Blue Ant Q2 and the LG HS7000. I called VZW tech support. They called Samsung support who said that speech to text using bluetooth is only supported using a Samsung bluetooth headset. Hmmm. Bummer. Predictive text entry is not as smooth or accurate as using my iPhone 4S. I type ...

for the HTC Droid DNA:
Great phone but a few shortcomings
I pre-ordered the Galaxy Note2 for VZW and cancelled it to order the HTC DNA once I saw the DNA specs. The last HTC phone I had was the EVO 4G with Sprint. I received my DNA yesterday so my opinions here are initial. PROS: -Amazing display. Not over saturated with colors. Colors seem to be pretty true. The resolution is astounding. The size seems just right for a larger phone without getting obtrusive. -Great Sound with headphones. A little extra bass is ...

for the Apple iPhone 5 (CDMA / global):
No Groundbreaking Improvements But a Good Phone
Day Two Review Carrier: Verizon Wireless Location: Portland Metro (Oregon) Phone: iPhone 5, 64GB Pros: Camera - Panorama mode works wonderfully Siri - Seems to work better than before. More accurate. Screen - Higher resolution, 1/2" taller Earbuds - Sound amazing (But fall out of the ear easily) 4G LTE - It's about time :) Do Not Disturb - Functional and works well Processor - Very fast and responsive Cons: USB Cable - Changed again which results in iPhone 5 buyers having to fork out more money for additional cables ...

for the Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch:
Mostly Happy But a Few Concerns
I carry 2 phones, work and personal. I already had the Motorola Photon for a personal phone. I was using the Optimus V from VirginMobile for work due to the unlimited plan being affordable. But ported the number to Sprint after coverage issues. I bought the iPhone 4s. I was happy how easily it fit in my pocket and carrried the MoPho in a case on my belt. After becoming disenchanted with the 4s because of miserably slow data ...

for the Apple iPhone 4S:
Still On The Fence
I carry two phones cuz I don't like giving customers my personal cell number. I upgraded from the evo 4g to the Motorola Photon for my personal phone. I was using the Virgin Mobile Optimistic V for work but ported the number last week to Sprint to get the iPhone 4S. I have spent the last three days comparing the two phones. Data: The iPhone is a slug compared to the Motorola (on 3G) . I did download speed tests ...

for the Motorola Photon 4G / Electrify:
Photon 4G vs EVO 4G
After one year with the EVO 4G I decided to do some research on the EVO 3D and Photon. I have been very happy with the EVO but was intrigued by the specs on the other two phones Sprint was now offering. I gave the EVO to my wife and decided the Photon was the better of the two options. I have now had the Photon for 10 days. Pros: Brighter and higher res screen Gorilla glass screen Slightly better battery performance Better audio ...

for the Apple iPhone 3G:
Goodbye AT&T/iPhone 3G…Hello Verizon Wireless Part 1
My son and I were numbers 31 & 32 in line at the local AT&T store in Beaverton, OR on July 11th, 2008. We were very anxious to get our hands on two new 16GB iPhones. Althoug we had been in line a long time our sales experience was positive and the sales reps were friendly. After leaving the store, that's when things started going wrong. It didn't take long to discover the following significant and repetitive problems: 1) Took ...

for the BlackBerry Curve 8330:
Not Much Room For Improvement!
I'm a small business owner and have had business plans with Verizon, T-Mobile, Cingular, Nextel and now Sprint. I am replacing my 8830 with an 8330. Here's my opinion on the 8330 and the differences between the two. Pros: *On paper the dimensional difference sounds insignificant but the 8330 is noticeably smaller which to me is a plus. *The 8330 seems to have a quicker and more responsive browser. The cursor functions better when browsing than the 8830. *The screen is ...
