The Microsoft Lumia 535 is a low-SAR (0.46 w/Kg) mid-range 5-incher that sports two 5-megapixel cameras -- one at the back, and a Skype-integrated one up front. Its specs are headed by Cortana, Microsoft's proprietary voice assistant, which might just fare well against Apple's Siri AI. Its internal memory caps off at 8GB, but does come with 15GB worth of free cloud storage and support for up to 128GB of space using a microSD card. This Windows 8.1 smartphone runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with a 1GB RAM to match.
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
The Gusto 3 succeeds the previous Gusto models from Samsung, retaining the convenience of a large and simple UI and a one-touch speakerphone button. The new version runs a Qualcomm QSC6055 192Mhz processor and a 1000mAh battery deemed able to yield 771 hours of stand-by time (roughly a month) Its flip lid sports a 1-inch external display (showing the time and notifications) and a 1.3-megapixel camera for snapping quick pictures on the go. The M3/T3 hearing aid ratings and its expanded array of fonts also add to the convenience of Samsung's third attempt in the Gusto series.
Continuing Microsoft's Lumia smartphone series is the 5-inch Lumia 535 Dual SIM, a Corning-Gorilla-Glass-3-equipped model that sports 5-megapixel cameras on each side of its body. It comes with Cortana, a personal voice assistant that helps you navigate your way through the phone's features. Storage-specs-wise, this quad-core model comes with an 8GB internal memory, an up-to-128GB expansion support, and 15GB worth of free cloud storage via OneDrive.

On paper, the Liquid S2 is rather remarkable. The 6-inch Android 4.2.2 phablet has a 1920 x 1080 368ppi display with Acer's Zero Air Gap technology that is said to make images look brighter. Its 13-megapixel f/2.2 camera can reportedly shoot not only 4K Ultra HD (which has four times the resolution of Full HD) videos but also 27-megapixel panorama photos. It also comes with the Dolby Digital Plus technology, two speakers, and four microphones. A quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 16GB storage memory, a 2GB RAM, and a 3300mAh battery make up a list of specs that may make a phablet fan's mouth water.
This basic flip phone from LG seems to target users who may have some problems with hearing or vision. Its 2.2-inch display features a text-to-speech technology (also found on comparable devices) that reads your texts out loud. On the contrary, it comes with M3/T4 hearing aid ratings for those who have slightly impaired hearing. A 1.3-megapixel camera sits on its back side, with a camcorder feature for taking quick videos. Its battery is rated at 950mAh, with a reported talk time of over three hours. Other features include WEA, an MP3 player, Bluetooth and a 230MHz single-core engine.

For emergencies or accidents, it lets you connect to on-call assistance using the special 5Star key. It also has a 24/7 line with registered nurses or board-certified doctors, in case you need medical advise. To complement its customer service, it relies on a battery that lasts for up to 25 days of mixed usage on a single charge. Like most clamshells, it comes with separated and backlit keys to make texting and phone navigation easier.
LG comes up with a new conventional flip-phone to add to its roster with the A380. Built for those casual users who only need a simple phone, it retains features from its ancestor (the A340) such as 3G capability, an enhanced audio mode (for users who have hearing problems) and a text-to-speech function. It is also outfitted with small upgrades such as a larger storage memory that was increased from 87.6MB to 256MB, an improved head and body SAR rating of 0.41 and 0.64 from 0.44 and 0.84 respectively, and a battery that now lasts up to 205 minutes of talk time (previously 180 minutes).
