At PhoneNews.com, we’re busy. We’re also hiring to make ourselves less busy. But, between those two things… we don’t really have all the time in the world to give lengthy reviews to every phone and accessory.
But, we do have these forums, and they have all these places to chat about devices, carriers, tips, solutions, questions, and the all-important answers. So, we’re going to take a page from the reviews, and from the forums, and combine the concepts of both in a new format that we call Mini Reviews.
Basically, these reviews higlight the important stuff on each device, leaving out aspects that don’t really change over time. For example, if you’ve used one Sanyo Katana, there hasn’t been a lot of earth-shattering changes to the next model. So, we’ll present to you what changed, what’s new, and what’s still causing us to pull our hair out… about each new phone.
Where can you find these mini reviews? A few places, actually. We’ll post them here in the news feed of course. You can also find them in the relevant forum categories (for example, our Samsung Omnia i910 mini review is located in the Verizon Devices forum). And, we’ll also link to them in the Phone Encyclopedia page for each phone that we give a mini-review.
Best of all, the mini reviews are great starting points for a discussion about the device, and since you’ll be in the forums already, feel free to break out into discussing other topics as well.
