  • The Samsung Galaxy Portal is a solid Android 1.5 handset that's better than the HTC Magic in our opinion. If you want a reasonably priced touchscreen phone to check emails, Facebook and Twitter, and surf the web, then the Samsung Galaxy Portal won't di...

  • Abstract:  At first glance, it’s not hard to see why the Samsung i5700 can be so easily compared with the HTC Hero. Both handsets are Android devices and are fairly similar in terms of size, weight and specification. However, this is where the similarity ends, as th...
