REVIEW

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play 4G ( AT&T)

AT&T's Sony Ericsson Xperia Play 4G is ideal for gamers, but we'd prefer to see more-accurate controls, a few more features, and a faster data network.

LG Thrive
REVIEW

LG Thrive ( AT&T)

The LG Thrive is a decent entry-level Android smartphone for the prepaid crowd, but its limited data plan encourages us to look elsewhere.

Third Rail System
REVIEW

Third Rail System ( for iPhone 4)

The Third Rail Slim Case for iPhone 4 with Slide-on Smart Battery is arguably the best mobile juice pack on the market. It's especially useful if you also have other mobile devices.

Samsung Zeal SCH-u750
REVIEW

Samsung Zeal SCH-u750 ( Verizon Wireless)

Fans of the Samsung Alias 2 should love the Samsung Zeal's identical convertible flip design and e-ink keyboard. However, if you're not open to a learning curve, the Zeal has little new to offer.

REVIEW

Samsung Continuum ( Verizon Wireless)

More than just a gimmick, the Samsung Continuum's secondary display is a useful management and multitasking tool, but its constant flow of information might not appeal to everybody.

Samsung Gravity 3
REVIEW

Samsung Gravity 3 ( T-Mobile)

The Samsung Gravity 3's full QWERTY keyboard and messaging features are enough to satisfy most heavy communicators, with other advanced features icing the cake. At $50 with a two-year service agreement, the Gravity is a good midlevel option for those who aren't ready to jump into the smartphone arena.

Samsung Sunburst
REVIEW

Samsung Sunburst ( AT&T)

As long as you don't expect it to have groundbreaking performance, the Sunburst is a simple touch-screen phone with a healthy set of midrange features for a pretty good price.
