Which online site do you trust the most in terms of technical reviews for smartphone components?

I am in the marked for a dual-SIM GSM smartphone, preferably with a removable battery.  The carriers would probably be T-Mobile USA and some other European carrier (for when I travel).

A search online brings up tons of sites that review cell phones.  Buyt most don't go too much into the hardware side and concentrate more on the esthetics of the phone...

 

Are there sites that evaluate phones' CPUs, memory/storage chips, voice quality, display technology, Wi-Fi/cellular/Bluetooth/GPS range and quality, camera resolution, etc.?

I personally prefer to use head to head comparisons at a site such as http://smartphones.specout.com/

Then when I've narrowed my choice down to one or two phones I Google that or those specific phone/s and read about a dozen reviews to get a less biased overall review. That's how I made my latest decision about 2 months ago. It's not easy and takes time. But in my opinion well worth minimizing buyers remorse on such a high end transaction.

Thanks for the suggestion!

You're quite welcome. Best of luck in your search.
