    What can you buy for $96 now a days? If you're thinking about smartphones, the most that'll get you is a cheap Lumia, or a very cheap-looking Android phone in some cases. That last thing you'd expect to buy with it is a full-fledged smartphone that could give the Moto G a run for its money, but that's exactly what Meizu ...

    Even though Sony has been rather sluggish at product announcements this year, the company has managed to launch a few flagships that we've already reviewed.

    A Google account acts as the gatekeeper for so many of the company's services, there's a good chance you probably have one (if not more) registered: maybe you're a die-hard Gmail user, or maybe you only signed up when you got your new Android phone.

We always hear Tim Cook saying how trilled he is with the service in every conference call, but so far the company hasn't provided any exact figures or statistics on performance.
