Questions about build, speed, software, and general thoughts about certain things are great! Questions about benchmarks, specific camera performance, and very specific battery life are much harder to answer just yet. Read More

For many young kids, Disneyland is a dream come true. And if they're old enough to dream of going on Disney rides, they're probably also old enough to know that Gameloft is a game developer to approach with caution. Some games are good.
