Since the occurrence of CES 2012, one of Android's favorite smart phones has been named the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. For everone that just purchased the RAZR, sorry. This phone is just flat out better. The RAZR is still a great phone, however.

If the above statement has lost you, it is my personal mission to find you once more. At CES, the latest and greatest technology was brought together. It's like a grown up science fair. Companies from all across the globe get to sell their products and amp up their company. One phone in particular got sold a lot.

The RAZR MAXX is from Droid, and along with that there was an unveiling of the Motorola Droid 4, repeat appearances of the Droid 3, and Droid RAZR. You can imagine the excitement with having 4 phones at a geek convention.

Without further a due, the review.

At CES, their sales pitch was based almost entirely off of their improved battery life with a "super battery" as they called it. They claimed you could drive from Vegas to L.A. and back with WiFi on and it would not die on you, or 6 hours of continuous video streaming, or about 8 movies.

That is quite the claim.

Other plus sides to the phone are that it kept the Motorola Droid RAZR's slim design, being 8.99 mm thick. You can see the entire device review specifications in the chart with comparisons of competing phones on the market.

Android Device Review: HTC Rezound

This concept is unlike any other seen physically. This is the phone you see burly lumberjack with while on the job. Mechanics or construction workers. The phone might as well be a transformer in disguise. The HTC H1 concept was made by an Iranian named Saeid Khajevand, and it is far from generic.

 The Android smart phone, HTC H1 is what you would call modest. It doesn't need the latest and greatest technology that would cook you breakfast in the morning. It does, however, fit the needs of the masses. It's got a rear facing 12MP camera and a front facing VGA camera. It has front and side speakers, rivaling the HTC Rezound in musical performance. Also note that this will  be one of the

first, if not the first, phones with a micro SD slot that isn't covered by a battery or SIM cover.

The two buttons under the display are interchangeable (Notice the two pictures have different buttons). You are able to change them to any combination of the common under-display buttons (home, menu, back, search). That allows a lot of customization without rooting your phone!

On a physical analysis, the ambitious and in-your-face styling of the metallic "x" on the back with the HTC logo and rear camera is breathtaking. If this concept had any changes, it would be to make it thinner (it's 12mm). I personally like the thickness, I just would prefer it if the outer layer was detachable, so I could fit it in my pocket easier and have the outer layer in the other one.

As we all know, the rise of Android is far from over. More and more innovative technology is being thought of daily.

Android is highly considering bring back the flip phone, which gained popularity in the early 2000's. They are, however, adding a little "spice" that will make iPhone developers slam their heads against the wall repetitively for not coming up with it first.

Caution: The phone have, or are about to see, may cause an incredible feeling inside. You have been warned. 

Android Flip Phone

With the addition of three display capable screens, the hype of this phone is tremendous. Although it isn't the first time hearing about a multiple touch screen phone (note the Kyocera Echo), it will certainly provide a ton of bragging rights worldwide. I wouldn't be surprised if people lost some friends over this phone. All's it needs is the speed of the new Tegra-3 processors, and you won't need a laptop anymore.

The Flip Android phone is completely versatile. You can have one screen for apps and widgets, while the other two act as a bigger screen for playing games or watching videos. You have it stand up so you don't have to hold it while watching videos as well. It's shape allows it to stand up by itself (while in a triangle). Or you could use two of the screens separately for improved multitasking. Whatever you want to do, you can.
Unfortunately, due to it being a concept, it can't be analyzed completely with specifications and such, but it's hype will inevitably not be a disappointment. You can count on this being the phone of the century, in competition with giants such as Verizon's HTC Rezound.

There is a new quad core super phone in the midst. What does that mean for us? Replacing our computers forever.

The phone is the Samsung Galaxy S III. I don't know about you guys, but since my computer broke down, I've been suppressed to the slowness of an old laptop. My laptop has a single core and 2GB of RAM. It was $500. The fact that the phone is quad core and also 2GB of RAM is almost too good to be true. 

Galaxy S III

The amazement doesn't stop there. The Galaxy S III has a 12-megapixel camera, where the Galaxy S II and most other Android devices have an 8-megapixel camera.

Unfortunately, all of the information has yet to be released, but with what has been released you can compare the two cousin phones to each other. With the Galaxy S II being a top sold phone since it's been released, there is extremely high hopes for the Galaxy S III.

After coming to grips with the hype of the HTC Rezound, I have decided to analyze another top Android smart phone powerhouse, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

The Nexus is the definition of fast. 1.2GHz Dual Core processor, 1GB RAM, it might as well be a tablet. But it's not.

Being the first Android to have the honor of officially running the Android 4.0 upgrade Ice Cream Sandwich, is a big deal. This phone is for everyone wanting an eye candy machine to brag to your friends with.

After searching around the web, I have decided to correlate all of the knowledge I took in. The Rezound is the first ever phone to be backed officially with Beats by Dre. A powerhouse in the audio department along with a powerhouse (Verizon) from the wireless department is going to kick things off strong.

Below I will show you how the Rezound matches up with the other top phones in the nation.
