Review: Nokia N75
The Nokia N75 is a jack of all trades, but master of none. Each separate feature does a good job, but none of the them truly stand out to send it over the top. All together, the music player, camera and other multimedia features are what you expect to see on a $200 phone. The problem is, other phones offer the same things in smaller, cheaper packages and include headphone jacks or stereo Bluetooth. The one thing setting the N75 ahead of the pack is the more advanced S60 platform. Is it worth the extra dough you'll pony up for it? That depends on just how much you want to do more advanced things with the N75.

Review: Alcatel Idol 4S - Unlocked
Alcatel's flagship Android handset strives to break through barriers with its high-end design and mid-range specs.
