Forums Added for the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, and Xperia T

Not too long ago, we brought you news of Nokia’s and Microsoft’s joint event aimed at introducing the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, as well as giving a brief first look at what Windows Phone 8 would bring users. Now as the devices approach their launch dates, we are happy to announce that they have been given a place in our forums, along with Sony’s new Android flagship—the Xperia T.

Heralding the launch of Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 serve as Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 launch devices. Both devices feature the speedy 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 and 1 GB of RAM, as well as HSPA+ and LTE connectivity. The flagship 920 packs a 4.5″ IPS LCD with a 1280×768 resolution, a 2000 mAh battery, 32 GB of storage, and an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization. Its little brother, the 820, features 8 GB of storage, a 1650 mAh battery, and a 4.3″ WVGA AMOLED.

In the Android world, Sony recently announced the Xperia T. The device is the company’s late 2012 flagship Android device. The device features a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor backed by 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and a whopping 13 MP camera. The 4.55″ LCD is also noteworthy, featuring a high 720p resolution and the proprietary BRAVIA engine. Perhaps most interestingly, the Xperia T will follow in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and offer on-screen Android hotkeys. While the device will come preloaded with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, an early update to 4.1 Jelly Bean is expected.

Well, what are you waiting for? Head over to the newly created forums below to get started!

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit.
