All New One for Verizon unboxed, complete with camera samples

Verizon HTC One 2014

HTC has had the worst time keeping their 2014 flagship device a secret. We’ve seen a ton of leaks about every little thing about the device, and there have even been a few hands on video already, some of which were a little more official than others. But hey, since we’ve seen it all, why not go through some unboxing photos for good measure?

Russian retailer PDA Plaza managed to get a hold of a Verizon version of the device and photographed every detail of opening it up. If you’ve ever opened a new device before, you won’t be surprised to see plastic bags and wrapping all over the device. Nothing too extraordinary here. Read more

Galaxy S III unboxed on YouTube

There’s still a whole two weeks to go before Samsung’s Galaxy S III finally hits the shelves and already one lucky tech lover has managed to get his hands on the retail package. HD Network’s Editor in Chief Nicollo Rolli is that lucky man and fortunately for the rest of us, he decided to film the unboxing and upload it to YouTube to whet our appetites. Rolli gives us a useful look at how the S III compares to other leading Android devices, the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X and HTC One S.

You might want to brush up on your Italian before you hit the play button although there’s plenty to be gained from the visual comparisons!

Sony Xperia S Unboxing Vids and Leaked Promo [Videos]

Sony has completed the Sony Ericsson buyout, and with that, changes are coming to the new Sony Mobile Communications. For example, new devices like the Xperia Ion and the Xperia S, will no longer carry the Ericsson name. The Xperia S is not supposed to be available until sometime in March, but new unboxing videos, and a leaked promo video, have surfaced for those of you waiting. The first thing you will notice is the change in packaging style, which is now wider and thinner than before.

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket unboxing and initial hands on [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket (SGH-I727) is one of the first two LTE phones for AT&T, which by the way, will cover 15 markets by November 20. It’s essentially the same Galaxy S II that’s available now on AT&T, but with a bigger 4.5-inch (800 x 480) Super AMOLED Plus screen, a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and of course the 4G LTE compatibility. It’s actually a lot like the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II, but a little thinner. Other notable specs include 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 2MP front camera, 1850mAh battery, 16GB internal storage, up to an additional 32GB with microSD card, Bluetooth, WiFi, and Android 2.3.5.

It’s priced at $249.99 with a 2-year contract. I would highly recommend this version over the standard Galaxy S II even if you don’t live in one of the LTE markets. Don’t forget, you are signing a 2-year contract so it’s likely that LTE will come your way during your contract, not to mention you will enjoy a slightly larger screen. Of course if you live in a completely rural area, you might do better sticking with the original.

We probably won’t do an in depth review on this one because the only notable difference from the T-Mobile version and this one is the AT&T 4G LTE compatibility. Unfortunately, I’m not in one of the 15 markets to review battery life and speeds, but if I notice anything notable, I will certainly let you know. For now, checkout our review of the T-Mobile version and my quick hands on video after the break:

Samsung Stratosphere unboxing and initial hands on [Video]

I just got my hands on the Samsung Stratosphere which spec-wise is not jaw-dropping, but enough for most people. It comes with a 4-inch (800 x 480) Super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and Android 2.3.5. What makes this phone appealing is that it’s 4G LTE compatible. With most LTE phones on Verizon priced at $299, this phone is a steal for $149.99. It’s a little thick, coming in at 14mm, but for those that like a QWERTY keyboard, this is more appealing than the DROID 3, which lacks LTE. Check out my quick hands on, and look for a full review shortly.
