HTC First.. a Facebook phone.. review

HTC First.. a Facebook phone.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"The HTC First is not the Facebook Phone, but it’s a Facebook Phone, and if you feel like we’ve been here before then you’re not alone. Baking the core essence of Facebook Home – “putting people first” with a content-rich homescreen and tightly integrated messaging – into a dedicated handset, the First is the start of what we’re told will be a series of Home “experience” devices. Problem is, HTC tried putting Facebook front and center once before."

The LG Intuition Review.. size does matter

The LG Intuition Review.. size does matter | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

But the phone-tablet ("phablet") phenomenon marches on, particularly in light of the success Samsung has seen with its Galaxy Note device. The Intuition hits all of the right notes, offering a speedy processor, high-resolution display, 4G LTE speeds, and some NFC capabilities, but unfortunate design decisions make this a tough device to recommend."
