iPhone 5 vs HTC One: Camera shootout

It's become a cliché for a reason -- the best camera is the one you have with you, and for the vast majority of us, that's the iPhone 5. It is, as Apple will happily tell you, the most "popular" camera in the world. Over the last few months, however, other manufacturers have really been stepping up their optics as well. The one who has taken the biggest risks, and made the biggest gamble, is the HTC One. Instead of going for more megapixels, they went for more microns. Like Apple, they put sensor quality ahead of quantity, but took it to another level entirely. If the camera is the most important part your phone, that raises an important question -- iPhone vs. HTC One, which takes the best photos?

iMore's own Leanna Lofte has done a complete iPhone 5 camera review, and Alex Dobie from Android Central has done a similar HTC One review, but what happens when we put them head to head? Each camera will have its own strengths and weaknesses, but for most people, most of the time, which will let them capture the moments that really matter? Let's find out!

iPhone 5 vs. BlackBerry Q10: Which should you buy?

The BlackBerry Q10 represents the return of the original BlackBerry, and unabashedly so. Sure, it runs the same BlackBerry 10 operating system as the full touchscreen BlackBerry Z10, but it packs it into the classic, keyboard package every hardcore communicator and enterprise accomplisher knows and loves. But how does it compare to the iPhone 5, and if you're considering both -- which one should you get?

Hands-on: iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S4

Live from the Samsung Unpacked event on Thursday, I snuck a few minutes at the demo tables and Phil Nickinson of Android Central was kind enough to film me doing a super quick iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S4 hands on.

I posted some extensive thoughts on the Galaxy S4 the other day, so read that now if you have already. To better round-out both offerings, here's Phil's complete Galaxy S4 hands-on as well.

2013 is going to be an exciting year.

Comparing iPad calendar apps at a glance

Earlier this week, I compared the default views of 12 popular iPhone calendar apps, and since sometimes good things also come in bigger packages, now it's time for the iPad. No surprise here, but as with the 5 iPad podcast apps, 18 iPad weather apps, and 9 iPad Twitter apps, not all iPhone calendar apps have versions or interfaces for the iPad. We get 10 this time.

Comparing iPhone calendar apps at a glance

I've compared the main screens of iPhone Twitter apps, weather apps, and podcast apps, and next on the agenda is calendar apps. While iOS contains a default calendar app, and many people find it affable enough, it never seemed to get as much high level Apple attention as some of the other core apps. Maybe that's why a plethora of canny developers and designers have managed to reverse-Sherlock (Moriarty?) Apple and put out good look, great working calendar apps that go above and beyond the default. For this piece, I'm taking a quick look at the standard view of 11 of them, including the built-in iOS Calendars app, for a total of 12.

iPad mini vs. Galaxy Note 8.0 hands on!

Phil Nickinson and Alex Dobie of are on the ground at Mobile World Congress, and they've just gone hands-on with the all new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, a tablet that sits roughly between the iPad 4 and iPad mini in size, but boasts the Wacom-style digitizer-gone-mobile that Samsung's Note line is famous for. Since we're all one big happy Mobile Nations family, Phil and Alex also brought along their iPad mini so they could put the two competitors head-to-head.

So sit back, relax, grab a tasty beverage, and hit play. Then go check out all the rest of the Galaxy Note 8.0 coverage at Android Central.

Best nutritional and food information app for iPhone

When we think fitness we typically think of eating better being one of the very first steps to a healthier lifestyle. There are many apps in the App Store that provide nutrition information about the foods you eat, and in some cases, even healthier alternatives to help you make changes gradually.

We've scoured the App Store for the best apps when it comes to nutrition and learning to eat better. We looked for apps that would not only give you nutrition information but provide alternatives, help you shop for them, and let you track your progress when and if you wanted to.
