When we first saw the HTC Status for ourselves a couple of weeks ago we were very impressed. It’s fast, sleek, and has an excellent keyboard. But there’s a reason we called that a First Look and not a full-blown review, as those were just our first thoughts after spending a few minutes with AT&T and HTC’s new Facebook and teen focused phone.

For the last couple of weeks we’ve put the Status under some much more intense testing. So, how does it hold up and if you’re on AT&T should it be your next phone? For those answers and more read on for our full Teen Review of the HTC Status.

The Infuse 4G has been one of the most anticipated phones AT&T has launched so far this year. And with its massive 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, fast 1.2 GHZ Hummingbird processor, and incredibly thin design it’s not hard to see why. We’ve been putting this 4G beast through the paces the last couple of weeks and to put it simply, we think its one of AT&T’s top phones out there right now.

Ah good ‘ol Madden. Every year you bring along so many things– the start of football season, a diversion from school, and one of the most exciting video games of the year.

With much improved graphics, gameplay and even a better intro, Madden NFL 11 looks to have the makings of yet another winner in this classic franchise. So, how does it do and better yet– for those on the fence about getting it, is this year’s version worth the $60? Read on for our full review!
