BlackBerry Q10 for Verizon Wireless

The BlackBerry You've Been Waiting For

June 17, 2013 | by Scott Lewis

If you're looking for a reason to check out the new BlackBerry Q10, I have three good ones for you.

1. The 4 Row QWERTY Keyboard:The keyboard on the new Q10 is exactly what you expect on a BlackBerry smartphone. Easy to read keys with excellent spacing and that special feedback that you can only get from a real physical keyboard. The typing experience on the Q10 is fantastic. If you are currently using a touch screen smartphone, using the Q10 will take you back to the first phone you ever had with a real QWERTY keyboard. I also believe you can type faster and more accurately on a real keyboard because of the added dimension of feel you have when moving from key to key.

2. The Completely Redesigned BlackBerry 10 Operating System:The completely redesigned BlackBerry 10... read more

DROID RAZR M Smartphone - Black, White, Pink, Blue

DROID RAZR M by Motorola: Razor-Thin & Packing A Powerful Punch

May 30, 2013 | by Dawn Van Dyke

Did you carry an original Moto Razr?  These brightly colored, razor-thin flip phones were all the rage in the early '00s. In fact, this family of fashionable cell phones is still considered the best selling clam-shell cellphone in the world to-date.

In 2012, Verizon Wireless resurrected the best parts of the Razr (super-thin design, fun colors) with the latest in Android and mobile technology to create the powerful DROID RAZR by MOTOROLA smartphone family.

Just because the sleek DROID RAZR M smartphone is thin, doesn't mean it's fragile. Both splash-resistant and scratch-resistant, the vivid 4.3-inch touchscreen is protected by... read more

Nokia Lumia 928 is Verizon's latest flagship WP8 smartphone

Nokia Lumia 928: A bright light shining through the Windows Phone 8 pane

May 16, 2013 | by Megan Murray

Stylistically, Nokia designed the Lumia 928 to be super sleek and ultra-thin with sharp corners and flat sides - a wise improvement to its cousin the Lumia 920, which was a bit clunky and thick.  And clearly Nokia also heard those naysayers who complained that the 920 was too heavy, because the 928 is ultra-lightweight.   Under the hood, the Lumia 928 is quite similar to the 920.  Both run on Windows Phone 8 OS with a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor for seamless multitasking and fast performance.  They also both have a 4.5-inch 720p HD screen.  However while the 920 features an LCD display, the 928 opted for AMOLED technology, which should make colors more vibrant and vivid. 

Just like the Nokia Lumia 920, the 928 also boasts an 8.7-megapixel camera with image stabilization... read more

The HTC One in Glacial Silver

The HTC One: The best smartphone on the market

May 14, 2013 | by Scott Lewis

The first thought that will come to your mind when you picked up the Glacial Silver or Stealth Black HTC One for the first time is that the all-aluminum design is sleek and stylish and the metal case has a quality feel about it.  Once you are done drooling over the look of the phone and take a minute to power it on, you will instantly be impressed with the 1080p high-definition display showing the Android operating system layered with the visually engaging BlinkFeed.  BlinkFeed collects news and current events about topics you are interested in and combines them with your social media networks like Facebook and Twitter... read more

HTC One Smartphone versus Samsung Galaxy S 4 Smartphone

Ultrapixel vs Megapixel: HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S 4 Camera Schmackdown

May 14, 2013 | by Scott Lewis

Over the last few years, smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, LG, and Motorola have made improvements to the cameras in their latest smartphones by increasing the Megapixel count. HTC's latest smartphone, the HTC One, deviated from this trend. Instead, they introduced us to: "ultrapixel". The HTC One's camera allows 300% more light to enter the UltraPixel sensor that is 4x's larger than a Megapixel sensor. On paper, the larger sensor should give the HTC One a distinct advantage over the... read more

Droid Razr Maxx HD by Motorola - Front

DROID RAZR MAXX HD: If Incredible Hulk and Energizer Bunny had a love child

May 13, 2013 | by Wirefly Buzz

I have been using DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola since November 2012 and just love it. In the spirit of full disclosure I am a DROID fan – I have owned an original DROID, a DROID X and most recently a DROID Bionic. The RAZR MAXX HD is the best by far with its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Why? Battery Life, Look & Feel, and Widgets.

Battery Life - The RAZR MAXX packs a whopping 3,300ma battery into its slim elegant case. It is over double the capacity of an iPhone 5 battery. It is 20% bigger than the Droid Bionic's extra cost extended battery which required an extra thick back to be added to the phone and made it hard to fit in your pocket. You can run it... read more

Samsung Galaxy S III Smartphone So Easy My Mother Can Use It

Samsung Galaxy S III – So Easy, My Mother Can Use It

May 06, 2013 | by Wirefly Buzz

The Samsung Galaxy S III is an ingenious, highly advanced Android-powered smartphone that is equally intuitive as it is easy to navigate that even my mother can use it.  This impressive device, which is available on Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint and Metro PCS, has a huge screen. It's big enough to read her email without her bifocals! At the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S III is so slim it could fit easily in her pocket (though I know she will put it in her large "duffle bag-sized" purse where she could store a lifetime supply of anything).  The 8-megapixel camera takes amazing pictures. She can easily use it on family vacations instead of her point & shoot camera.  The Android OS is so intuitive, that she won't need any assistance with set up.  Instead, she can immediately... read more
