Tom’s Guide Smartphone Reader Reviews: We Want You

At Tom’s Guide, we want to give you the most complete picture of a smartphone before you buy it, from benchmarks and comparisons to photo samples. But we want to go even further by tapping the power of our growing community. That’s why we’d like you to tell us what you think about the latest flagship devices based on your own experience.

We’d like you to rate the top new smartphones, telling us what you like and what you don’t. We’ll then display the average Tom’s Guide reader rating when we review some of these phones. Depending on the volume and quality of written feedback, we may directly quote or summarize some of the commentary within our articles.

The idea is to augment our own testing and experience with that of the Tom’s community in order to better organize and present the great feedback we often get. But we’re not looking for 3,000-word reviews. We’ve created simple Google forms for each product. Give it a rating, and then a short pithy comment or two.

Most important, please only rate those with which you’ve had direct experience. We’re not asking you to rate products based on the idea of them. And this also isn’t the place to be a hater, or to game the ratings. If you want to sound off for or against the iPhone, stick to the comments. Same thing applies to Android.

We realize that this list represents only a subset of handsets currently available. But we wanted to start with some of the more popular devices available, with the intent of building this program out over time. Our intent isn’t to suggest that these are the only solutions, but to provide a baseline for comparison.

The rating forms for each follow.  We look forward to hearing what you have to say. Your reviews won’t just be helping us but fellow shoppers in our growing community.
