Review: Samsung Instinct S30
Last year's Instinct had a horrible touch screen. The S30 is light-years better. In fact, it is one of the most responsive resistive touch screens I've used. Once calibrated, it worked almost flawlessly. I had no false positives, and not an egregious number of double presses. It's a whole new animal, and a good one at that.
This inexpensive, unlocked Android smartphone is smaller than its predecessor and yet better in many ways. The Blu Life One X2 Mini is a fine little phone for those who prefer or need to change networks often.
LG's second take on its stylus-equipped smartphone is easier to use and performs better than its predecessor. The Stylo 2 is also well made, inexpensive, yet laden with Android and LG goodies.
The BlackBerry KEY2 takes the basic design of last year's phone and makes improvements all around. The phone has a decent-sized screen, physical QWERTY keyboard, and metal chassis.
Google's Pixel XL is one of the company's finest efforts, even if it isn't perfect. This high-end Android slab wraps top specs in an aluminum shell — but the hardware isn't the real story here.
