  • Dr. Droid’s Review: Motorola’s AtrixHD is snappy, responsive and pretty good looking, too!

    I finally got a Motorola phone! It’s the AtrixHD and it’s beautiful! My first smartphone was the Motorola Droid X, so this is kind of like going back home. I love Motorola’s build on their phones. I do have some issues with how locked down they are and that’s why I haven’t had one in a long time. But after this, I’m seriously looking at going back. The phone was great! From the moment I opened the box I was […]

  • The + really matters, HTC OneX+ Review

    When I heard I was getting ahold of the HTC’s OneX+, I really thought ‘it can’t be much better than the OneX’.  I was wrong.  The OneX+ is what the OneX should have been.  It’s fast, smooth, comes with Jelly Bean and blew my expectations away! That was one of my biggest problems with the OneX, not Jelly Bean.   Having access to Google Now & Project Butter made this phone feel like a dream.  And it’s really thing and light.  […]

  • Is this the Android you’re looking for? Review: Samsung Rugby Smart.

    I love Samsung phones.  I can’t lie.  I didn’t a couple years ago, but they’ve really stepped up.  So I got this Rugby Smart a couple weeks ago – and about a year or so ago – this would have been a great pick.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice phone.  It’s snappy, and the screen is great.  However, it’s running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread without any hope of an upgrade.  So for the sake of this blog, we’re going […]

  • Review: Nokia Lumia 920 (Yes, I know it’s not Android)

    So I got a chance to check out a Windows Phone.  I’m die hard Android, but I figured I’d at least see how Microsoft is doing.  So it arrived and I was actually excited.  I opened the box and pulled it out – man is this thing heavy!  It weighs a lot compared to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  I wasn’t so excited anymore, but I pressed on.  I powered her up and I had no clue what to do!  It’s […]

  • Consultation with the Doctor: Android Q and A Session

    So last week I posted on NewsChannel 3’s Facebook page asking for your questions.  I got a few, so let’s jump right in and answer them! Deanna asked “How do I add movies to my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3”. Well Deanna the easiest way if you have the movie on your computer already is to just use the USB cable that came with the phone and plug it into your computer – wait for the drivers to be installed and […]

  • It’s just so big! Galaxy Note II Review

    The title says it all, and it’s all everyone said when I showed them this behemoth of a phone.  It’s also what I thought when I pulled it out of the box.  But after a couple days, I was in love!  Let’s get started. This thing is a beauty.  The screen is amazing!  Vibrant colors smooth interface with Jelly Bean 4.1 – just amazing.  At first I didn’t think I would like the stylus pen (S-Pen)  that came with the […]

    So it’s just one week until Black Friday and for a lot of folks – that means it’s time to do some shopping.  And historically, it means stores are offering up their better deals.  So I’ve been pouring through some of the leaked ads on to find some of the hot deals on Android phones and Tablets. I looked through Wal-Mart, Office Depot, K-Mart and Best Buy and here’s some of what I found.  Wal-Mart: You can pick up […]

    Buying Off Contract, What You Need To Know

    Tuesday Google/LG’s Nexus 4 goes on sale in the PlayStore.  It’s $299 off contract.  It’s a heck of a deal for those of you who are looking to upgrade, but don’t want to extend your contract.  Heck of a deal unless you have Verizon, since the Nexus 4 doesn’t have LTE.  So what do you do if you’re on Big Red and want to upgrade but don’t want to renew your contract or perhaps lose your grandfathered unlimited data plan?  […]

  • Where's My Droid

    Lost or stolen? Where’s my Android!?

    Most of us have had that panic moment when we can’t find our phones.  Thankfully, we usually find it in the car or in the couch, maybe even in a jacket pocket.  But what if you can’t find it, or it gets stolen?  Well don’t fret too much – there are several apps to help you track it down.  Let’s take a look at 4 of them. “Find My Phone Lite” is a free app in the PlayStore.  The description […]

    Smooth! HTC One X – The Review

    The title says it all. The One X, may not be lightning fast for one of the newer phones on the market, but man is it ever smooth.  When using this phone I was surprised at just how nice it really operates. No lag, no stuttering, just smooth. However — I’m not a huge fan of HTC’s Sense “skin” they put over the Android OS.  Now before you start tweeting me on that statement, let me explain.  I am a […]
