    Motorola Clutch Cell Phone Review

    If you like Nextel’s features, but can’t afford the services plans, you’d be wise to consider Boost Mobile. Sort of a Sprint Nextel younger brother, Boost offers similar phones and services at a cheaper price. And now with the new Motorola Clutch i465, Boost also gets its first QWERTY handset. As an...

    Samsung Exclaim Cell Phone Review

    Dual-slider phones like Sprint’s new Samsung Exclaim SPH-M550 may not be very common, but they’ve won their fair share of attention because they’re so peculiar. With both a standard alphanumeric keypad and a full QWERTY keyboard, they offer the best of both worlds. And it’s rather fun to figure out how they’re...

    Samsung Reclaim Cell Phone Review

    With green living very much in the public consciousness, green gadgets are becoming more popular. Exactly what that concept means can vary–for some it’s as simple as a device that uses less power–but manufacturers are applying the label to everything from televisions to cameras. For cell phones, the idea of green has...

    Samsung M240 Cell Phone Review

    The same day it introduced the touch-screen Samsung Rogue, Samsung quietly unveiled the Samsung M240. Made for Sprint, the M240 is all about communication. Features are few–you don’t even get Bluetooth–and the simple flip-phone design lends itself to making calls. On that front it does a decent job, but its performance didn’t...

    HTC Hero Cell Phone Review

    Sprint was one of the first carriers to join the Open Handset Alliance when it was founded in November 2007 to promote Google Android. However, unlike T-Mobile, which released the T-Mobile G1 and the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, the carrier wasn’t so quick to offer an Android handset to its customers because it...

    Motorola Debut i856 Cell Phone Review

    Most iDEN push-to-talk phones are quite bulky, and come in either a clamshell or candy bar design. However, the Motorola Debut bucks that trend. It is the first ever iDEN push-to-talk phone to come in a slider design, which gives it a rather svelte appearance. Aside from push-to-talk, the Debut also has...

    Samsung Instinct HD SPH-M850 Cell Phone Review

    Sprint Nextel stole the CTIA show last year when it introduced the Samsung Instinct. There was a lot to like about the touch-screen phone, so we were hopeful that Samsung would build on its successes with subsequent models. To our initial delight, the Samsung Instinct S30 made the rounds at CTIA this...

    Samsung Moment Cell Phone Review

    In case you haven’t noticed, the Google Android dam has broken. For almost a year, HTC was the only manufacturer to offer handsets with the operating system, but in the past month, Motorola and Samsung almost fell over each other to offer Android smartphones of their own. Moto gave us the satisfying...

    Samsung Intrepid Cell Phone Review

    The Samsung Intrepid made its debut at CTIA Fall 2009 as Sprint’s first Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone. Admittedly, we weren’t particularly impressed by the handset’s drab and slightly plasticky design when we saw it at the show but now that we’ve had some time to get to know the device, we can...

    Motorola Brute Cell Phone Review

    The Motorola Brute i680 doesn’t pretend to be anything other than exactly what it is. Even the slightest glance will show that this is one tough, durable phone. Its thick rubberized skin and bulky profile is far from attractive, but you know that it will be able to take a beating. You...

    Motorola i890 Cell Phone Review

    Motorola’s i890 isn’t your typical Nextel phone. It’s not packed in rubber; instead, it casts a trim shadow and is actually a bit stylish. Sure, it’s a lot like Sprint’s earlier Motorola Razr2–or more recently Nextel’s Motorola i9–but for what it lacks in originality it makes up for with its sturdy construction....

    LG Rumor Touch Cell Phone Review

    Long before messaging phones became a trend, LG has been making feature phones with full QWERTY keyboards. Verizon has its line of Voyager and enV handsets, and Sprint has the LG Rumor and the subsequent LG Rumor 2. Though they made decent messaging phones, the previous Rumor handsets were more for the...
