    The Nexus 6 may offer a pretty all-around respectable hardware experience, but could it have been even better? It wasn't long after the phone launched that we found ourselves revisiting some earlier rumors, ones that looked into the possibility of getting a fingerprint scanner.

    Last year, at MWC 2014, Sony introduced the Xperia Z2. After seeing the Xperia Z3 launch at IFA in late summer, our eyes were once again on the first quarter of the year in the hopes of Sony launching the latest member of this family. CES came and went with no Xperia Z4 in sight, leaving us to assume that we'd be ...

    Apple has never been famous discounts, and definitely not for giving things away on any of its stores. There was a time when the company was giving away singles, and it seems that even that went away silently. The good thing is that it seems that Apple has decided to take these free singles to a whole new level. Apple ...

    As our phones get more powerful, wireless networks faster, and storage options more plentiful, it's very easy for a developer to let his or her app start getting “fat.” Optimizations become a less important distraction, leaving more time to deliver new features.

    A couple of years ago, it would've been almost impossible to imagine Apple experimenting with anything outside its comfort zone. That said, the same company that was reluctant to launch a mini tablet, did with the iPad mini, and the same company that denied the need for a bigger iPhone, launched two of them with the ...

    We've been talking about HTC's intentions for its next Android flagship for a while now: the model codenamed Hima, presumed to launch as the One M9. Just about a week ago, we went from rumors and that stray component shot to some next-level leak action, as image after image turned up of some very One M8-looking, yet ...

    I’ve had a lot of weird phones cross my desk lately. Some of them were good in a weird way, and some were just weird in a weird way. But every one of these phones had something in common. I believed in the weird. I thought the weird added a tremendous amount of value to the device, and I wanted to explore it and see ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the ...
