Happy Saturday! Time to kick back and enjoy this week’s reviews. This week, we got our hands on the compact but snappy Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G from T-Mobile, the budget-friendly ZTE Fury from Sprint, the sub-$600 Toshiba Satellite L745 laptop, a wireless DVD player/external hard drive from Samsung, an app called Snapseed that gives you a suite of touch-based photo editing tools, 4 alarm clock docking stations for your smartphone, and an inexpensive room-monitoring camera called the iZon.
Not everyone is looking for a big-screen phone like the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile has a smaller display (3.9 inches versus 4.5 inches) and smaller price ($149 versus $229) than its big brother. But can Samsung shrink the dimensions of its flagship phone without sacrificing the power and performance consumers have come to expect?
