    Two weeks back Google launched Project Fi, its MVNO offering that delivers cellular service with the help of Sprint and T-Mobile's networks.

    Is Sony trying to build up a reputation for low-key smartphone launches? A couple weeks back the manufacturer dropped the Xperia Z4 on us from seemingly out of nowhere – sure, we were expecting it to debut at some point in the near future, but the announcement itself arrived with little warning – and now it's time ...

    As we look out into the smartwatch landscape, we see a pattern emerging. It’s a predictable pattern, but what surprises me is that it happened so fast. Like so many other products, especially those products in mobile technology, the smartwatch space has sorted itself out into three distinct tiers – low-, middle- and ...

    LG unveiled the Watch Urbane before MWC, showing it off on the Barcelona tradeshow floor, making us all drool over it, but it wasn't until recently that the smartwatch became available officially through the Google Store, and other retailer and e-tailer channels.

    As a large chunk of Nexus 9 owners know at this point, the waiting has been long and hard for an official over-the-air update to the latest version of Android, 5.1 Lollipop. For a Nexus device, it's natural to be yearning for updates as soon as possible, but that simply doesn't look to be happening with this device. In ...

    A new firmware version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is currently rolling out to applicable Xperia Z2 and Z3 smartphones, and while it doesn't bump the devices up to revision 5.1, it does bring some important changes to how the Xperia skin works on these smartphones.

    Just one day ago, we received official confirmation from OPPO that its upcoming new smartphone, the R7, would be fashioned from metal. Now, the company isn't about to let the hype slow down for the device; instead of letting the phone lie low for another day, it's bringing the R7 back into the spotlight by revealing ...

    Chinese manufacturer Gionee has been busy announcing the super-thin Elife S5.1, but thankfully, the Gionee Elife E8 specs we're seeing on Chinese wireless regulator TENAA's website emphasize on something incompatible with thinness: battery size and internals. The large six-inch display has a resolution of 2560x1440 ...

    Microsoft needs a flagship. We said it enough times in the past, while understanding that such a highly anticipated phone might not happen until Windows Phone 10 is final and ready to go mainstream. This is also something the company has hinted, but, at the same time, while talking about hints, we've seen a few bits ...

    The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro was announced at the same time with the Mi Note mid-January 2015, and, while we managed to take a very close look at the latter in our full review, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is still just a beast of a phone that we want to have in our labs. It launched in China today, and it will go for 2,999 ...

    Manufacturers are always moving around the lock/standby button on their phones in search of the perfect placement. We’ve seen everything from top-mounted power buttons, to side-switches, to even moving the entire control scheme to the back of the phone. But what happens when you buy your dream phone, only to find that ...

    Motorola introduced the original Moto X in August 2013, and the follow-up, the 2014 Moto X in September 2014. This means that the company will most likely unveil the third generation Moto X sometime in the third quarter, in four or five months. That, however, is a long time in tech, but it never stopped the rumor mill's ...

    You ever have a friend tell you about a great deal they found online, but when you go to check the listing for yourself, you see a different price? Retailers have been experimenting with dynamic pricing for years, where instead of offering the same products at the same prices for everyone, they'll vary things based on ...

    We all know that higher numbers are better than lower ones, right? But does that same logic apply when we're talking about two high-end mobile processors? The root of the questions falls squarely on LG, and its decision to put the Snapdragon 808 (instead of the 810) inside the flagship LG G4. The LG G Flex 2 uses ...

Beyond the headline-grabbing Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and HTC One M9, we also saw a ton of stuff from other companies, including a bunch of accessories.

Still, the promise of a brighter future emerged with some recent leaks that demoed the really cool aesthetic enhancements that are coming to the platform very soon. Given ...

    Motorola sure seems like it gets into these occasional moods where it just can't stop putting things on sale. It may be hesitant to permanently discount the prices of its phones and wearables, but it gets into these spells where it's a one-day sale here, a week of discounts there, and it's anyone's guess which devices ...

    Even though HTC is very desperate for a turnaround, products like the HTC One M9 didn’t reach the goal of wowing reviews. We thought the market felt otherwise given HTC's success in Q1 when compared to last year, but it seems that success was short lived. Figures for the company's performance last month are now ...

    There's no denying that Apple singlehandedly rescued music labels more than a decade ago with the launch of products like the iTunes Store and the iPod, at a time when music piracy was just too convenient for consumers. That business model has proven to have become obsolete as companies like Spotify, Pandora and YouTube ...

    The iPod was more than just a business for selling music and music players. Apple banked lots of money in the "Made for iPod" business model that allowed third-party manufacturers to make use of the old 30-Pin connector, in much of the same way we see today with the "Made for iPhone/iPad" program today. Apple is clearly ...
