Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition ( unlocked)

Unless you're an Android enthusiast or demand total freedom from carriers, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition isn't worth the hefty price.

LG Optimus G Pro
REVIEW

LG Optimus G Pro ( Unlocked, Black)

Though it lacks a stylus and it won't fit everyone's lifestyle, the LG Optimus G Pro's beautiful touch screen and ultrafast CPU do this handset justice.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ( titanium)

Samsung delivers a powerful, boundary-pushing device that gets a lot right. Yet its complicated features and high price raise questions about its purpose.

REVIEW

Sony Xperia P ( black, unlocked)

If beauty is your only priority, the Sony Xperia P will certainly satisfy, but power isn't this unlocked phone's forte.

REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Beam ( unlocked)

Despite weak software, the Samsung Galaxy Beam's bright projector pushes boundaries, and strong smartphone features make it a worthy standalone device.

LG Optimus 3D Max
REVIEW

LG Optimus 3D Max ( unlocked)

On its own, the 3D Max is a solid dual-core phone with some neat NFC-enabled features. But the hiccuping 3D feature, although cool, is a drag.

Samsung Galaxy Note
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Note ( unlocked)

With its huge screen and throwback stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a polarizing smartphone that winks at tablet territory. Those who like their screens XL will find a top-notch device that lets multimedia shine. The S Pen adds some artistic potential, but for some, the phone will just simply be too big.

Meizu MX
REVIEW

Meizu MX ( unlocked)

If you think you have no use for a Chinese iPhone clone running Android, the Meizu MX could drastically change your worldview. Despite a few quirks, the MX is a slick Android- and iOS- inspired hybrid that also flaunts a few tricks of its own.
