Smartphone Reviews

There are dozens of smartphones to choose from, and if we believe the commercials, then every single one of them is the best one for us. You may have heard the merits of Android smartphones, the messianic qualities of the iPhone or the business sensibility of the BlackBerry, but how do each of these smartphone features really factor into your lifestyle?

We take time to compare and contrast phones so you can see which smartphones do what and which ones do it best. Our smartphone reviews help you decide between a touchscreen and a physical QWERTY or choose between a GSM phone or a CDMA phone or a Windows Mobile phone and a Symbian phone. Whether you're trying to identify the subtle differences between model numbers (what do all those numbers really mean?) or if you want to know if you'll be able to handle switching carriers, our smartphone and cell phone reviews are here to help.

We condense all of the important pros and cons of each form into a quick, to the point review so you can make the tough calls with confidence.

We also regularly compile "best pick" lists that help you choose the best phone by feature. Looking for the best music phone or the best smartphone running Symbian? Or are you wondering if the phone you are considering made it on to our worst cell phone list or ugliest cell phone list? Or are you looking for the phone with the lowest total cost of ownership? Whatever your need, our cell phone reviews are designed to make your life easier.
