HTC One V Review

The bottom of the range is never a good place to be. Not if we’re honest. If your budget will “only go” as far as the One V then you might think that you’re losing out. Sure, when it comes to specs this isn’t as F1-fast as the …

HTC One S Review

The HTC One S is the slimmer, ever-so-slightly-less-powerful brother of the HTC One X. It’s got a 4.3″ screen with 960×540 pixel screen. I say “slightly less powerful” but heck, a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU is still ruddy good. Powered by Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0, it uses …

T-Mobile Vivacity video overview

It’s quickly turning into another big “review day” here at Coolsmartphone. Next up is this, the T-Mobile Vivacity. We’ve actually already reviewed this a few weeks ago but I’ve got one right here and figured that you’d like a video overview too. The T-Mobile Vivacity is actually built …
