LG Optimus G Pro Performance Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 7:31A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is certainly no shortage of performance from the LG Optimus G Pro. When compared to the original LG Optimus G we saw some significant gains when it came to the processor performance. Though its interesting that the browser performance in the LG Optimus G Pro was actually lower than that of the Optimus G, not by huge margins though, and not likely anything that would be noticeable either way in anything but a side by side comparison. The processor performance was the key though..."

     Wed, Aug 28 2013 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

We already reviewed the HP ElitePad, a stylish Windows tablet with an aluminium body running on an Intel Atom processor. Today we'll take a closer look at the myriad of accessories that really turn this tablet into a versatile mobile device.

41 Megapixels Take Flight: Nokia Lumia 1020 Rides
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's no question, what we do here at HotHardware definitely has its perks. Sure, the hours are long, the work can be grueling with benchmark run after run, take after take in the video studio or fighting with finicky, just-released products that don't want to cooperate. So what sorts of things do we do to relax and blow off a little steam? Well, sometimes we take the hardware for a joy ride; in this case quite literally. You may recall our recent review and showcase of Nokia's Lumia 1020 Windows Phone, with its high resolution 41 Megapixel camera, floating image stabilization and Carl Zeiss optics. Of course you do. We were pretty impressed by the device actually and more-so with its on-board HD camera and Pro Cam app software. So, when we got done putting the new Lumia 1020 through its paces, you might say we "kicked it up a notch" -- as in, say about 50 feet straight up, above the tree line...

Superphone Round-Up: Samsung, HTC, LG and More
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of really great smartphones on the market today. With various manufacturers competing for their slice of the smartphone market, there are a lot of factors to consider when shopping for one of these high-end phones. Although some consumers may find the myriad of options confusing or overwhelming, we find it exciting. After all, competition leads to better devices and features and we're the benefactors. In this product showcase, we'll take a closer look at three of the hottest phones currently on the market: the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S 4, and LG Optimus G Pro. Not to leave all other phones out in the cold, we'll also consider a few additional superphones that have some standout features and are just rolling out to retail now, to give this trio additional competition.

Roccat Kone Pure and XTD Gaming Mice Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 8:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The phrase German engineering has always signified the absolute top in function and efficiency, and today we get to put that to the test. Hailing from the Rhineland, today we have a dual gaming mouse review! Roccat has sent us two models from their Kone line: the portable Kone Pure, and the full size XTD. This line of gaming mice are aimed at those for whom customization is king. As a matter of fact, the head line on the boxes reads Max customization Gaming Mouse. With all of this hubbub about options, features, and settings that can be changed and rewritten, Roccat is putting out quite the order: gaming mice with interchangeable bells and whistles, and at an affordable price; the Pure is around $70, while the XTD goes for $90. Can they fill this order, or do Roccat end up spreading it all too thin? Lets find out!"

Riptide GP2 for Android Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 8:17P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Riptide GP2 is the sequel to the fast-paced Riptide GP that came out two years ago. Riptide GP2 brings with it an all-new Vector Engine 4, which has also been optimized for Tegra 4 devices, delivering higher-resolution texture support, complex shaders, dynamic lighting and real-time shadows.

For gamers who want to test their racing skills, online gaming is now also available where you can invite up to three friends to join you in the water tracks. Riptide GP2 is available for $2.99 via TegraZone.com or via Google`s Play Store./"

Windows Phone at its best, but is it enough?
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the Lumia 925, Nokia’s latest flagship Windows Phone and answer to complaints regarding its predecessors' design. It ditches the thick polycarbonate shell, hefty slab of glass and space-consuming LCD display for a mostly aluminum body with an AMOLED screen. In the process, the new Lumia has shed some weight, dropping to 139 grams and 8.5mm thick, giving it an all new breath of life. But are the changes too late? Is this the Lumia we should have had at the launch of Windows Phone 8?

Google Nexus 7 (2013) Review
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:39P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google made a brilliant decision last year to take the bull by the horns and deliver its own brand Android tablet to the masses. Built by ASUS to Google's specifications, the original Nexus 7 awarded a patient (and eager) audience with a stock Android experience wrapped in an affordable package that was high on value and low on feature concessions. It was precisely the kind of tablet the Android camp had been clamoring for, because for whatever reason, most third-party manufacturers were tying to push larger, overpriced slates onto an audience that simply wanted a solid tablet without paying a premium. Up until the Nexus 7 arrived, the only viable alternatives, other than cheap off-brands with questionable build quality, were Amazon's Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, a fine pair of slates for their intended purposes, but also deeply rooted in each company's own ecosystem. A year later, Google isn't taking a breather and is once again showing the competition how to deliver an Android tablet that caters to consumer demand. The new model Nexus 7 is a worthy successor to the original, boasting an improved design both internally and externally.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (AT&T) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Aug 06 2013 | 8:30A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The slightly confusingly named Samsung Galaxy S4 Active isn`t quite a Galaxy S4 in a waterproof case. It`s a different phone, albeit with the S4`s processor and Android skin. Some of the changes are for the better (a super-loud speakerphone), others are for the worse (a less-capable camera), and yet others are a matter of taste (a different screen technology)."

Genius EasyPen F610E Slim Pen Tablet Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 6:19A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today Ive got a graphics tablet, or the Genius EasyPen F610E Slim Pen Tablet which has plenty of features like those youd find in one that costs much more. At the present time this tablet sells for about $85 depending where you look and for that money youre getting a great tablet, one thats well made and is just full of features even the most advanced users can appreciate. The F610E has a resolution of 4,000LPI and features 2048 pressure levels so youll be able to really make some nice and finely detailed drawings, but the tablet itself has a working area of 6.25 x 10 which is pretty big really. The tablet is nicely made and just looks great, its very thin and lightweight and comes bundled with quite a bit of great software. So read on to learn more "

     Thu, Jul 25 2013 | 10:08A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are pooping rainbows with Robot Unicor Attack 2.  This is successor to the original Robot Unicorn Attack and that game was super fun.  They made this one even better with a few new features that reward you for playing the game more as you can level up, get powerups and more.  It`s a great game and it will have you jumping and dashing your way through all three wishes.  Take a look and see why it`s our App Pick of the Week."

Thermaltake Luxa2 H1-Touch Premium Holder Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Jul 22 2013 | 9:17A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Luxa2 Premium Holder is a nifty little creation that will allow an active mobile phone to be interactive without physically holding on to the device. Imagine lying in bed at a hotel wanting to watch a good flick but don`t really want to pay the cost of watching pay-per-view movies in the hotel? Well, log into your Hulu account, select your show or movie and prop the phone up on the H1-Touch and enjoy!"
