About Mobile

We continuously update our reviews of the best smartphones and best tablets. As new models arrive on the market, our expert reviewers assess their features and specs, carry out a sequence of hands-on evaluations, then score and rank them against their competitors.

Our reviewers frequently draw on additional benchmark tests of tablets and phones carried out in the labs of our sister site, Tom’s Guide/Laptop. Data from those tests is then used to determine performance scores in areas including battery life, display quality and image quality from the devices’ built-in cameras.

The experience of using a mobile device is, of course, heavily influenced by the quality of the network to which it is connected, in order to exchange data, make calls and more. That’s why we assess mobile services, too, including reviewing and ranking the best cell phone providers.

Other mobile devices, such as laptops and eBook readers, are covered elsewhere on our site.
