In our hyper-connected world, smartphones have taken center stage. Obsession with bigger screens, faster processors with more cores, and better cameras with higher megapixel count is reaching a new all time high. At the same time, mainstream tech blogs are increasingly struggling to differentiate from the rest, while the smartphone market is becoming extremely saturated.
But rather than bombarding you with redundant smartphone unboxing videos, camera performance reviews, subjective opinions on design and user interface, we will evaluate the modem, antenna, and front end performance of popular smartphones. Our goal is to bring this essential and long forgotten topic to the forefront, and create a discussion.
You’ll find a healthy mix of long-form smartphone RF performance reviews, in-depth LTE network field test analysis, and mobile industry insights. Our smartphone reviews will include LTE Over-the-Air MIMO analysis performed in a controlled environment with high reproducibility of measurements.
In addition to lab tests, we will frequently perform field tests in dense urban areas of New York City, collecting data, creating reference points, and performing analysis of LTE networks in an attempt to quantify consumer benefits of LTE Advanced features.
Enjoy the ride!
