    Samsung shifted its position on a pretty critical and polarizing issue recently. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge both came without two of the things it had always bragged about in the past – removable battery and expandable storage via microSD card. This was a major departure from previous iterations of the devices ...

    I’m not a fan of cases. This is a pretty well documented fact. Putting a case on a phone is a waste of millions of R&D dollars. Sure you’re protecting your investment, but a phone is not an investment – at least not the kind of investment that you can expect a return from. All things being equal, a phone ...

    Piece by piece, Microsoft's vision for Windows 10 is being exposed to users participating in the public Technical Preview. The first release got the ball rolling, and this month's new build added to that equation with the introduction of new apps like the Project Spartan browser. Back at its January event, Microsoft ...

    Yesterday we heard about a nasty bug affecting some Windows Phone users who were attempting to give Microsoft's Windows 10 Technical Preview a spin. Users with certain Lumia 52x-series handsets were finding their phones rendered unusable after playing with the preview, when trying to move back to Windows Phone 8.1. As a ...

    Mobile payments may not necessarily revolutionize how you pay for goods and services, but they can still be a convenient (and sometimes even fun) way to break up the monotony of cards and cash. Last year Apple tipped its toe in the contactless mobile payment waters with the release of the NFC-supporting iPhone 6 and 6 ...

    It was April 23 of last year when OnePlus had its big launch announcement for the OnePlus One. And with the one-year anniversary of that news coming up on us fast, it's little surprise we've been talking a bunch about plans for a follow-up to the that model. With multiple reports talking about Q3 (if not slightly ...

    It was only a few weeks after Google formally introduced Android 5.1 that we started hearing about its next platform release, as a new Android SDK made reference to Android version 5.1.1. But that was all we had: a number in some software. We're still far away from putting together an understanding of what Google ...

    Last week, Alcatel Onetouch shared the pre-order details for its 5.5-inch Idol 3. We first got our hands on the phone back at MWC in March, and now it was finally almost time for sales to begin. The way Alcatel Onetouch told it, the normally $280 Idol 3 would be scoring an online discount as pre-orders begin, going for ...

    The LG G4 is nearly here, having leaked six ways from Sunday in advance of its upcoming April 28 launch event. And while that means that much of the phone's design has been revealed, questions about the hardware remain. One of the bigger ones has concerned precisely which SoC will power the handset, and while a ...

    Back in January, I got my hands on LG’s latest curved contender, the G Flex 2, at CES 2015 alongside Michael Fisher and Jaime Rivera. The following month, Michael took a closer look at the device and praised it for its ergonomic design, but ultimately had trouble recommending it for its poor battery performance and ...

    Late last year, Sony Pictures Entertainment went and got itself hacked. What made that so interesting for us was that some leaked emails published in the hack's wake revealed internal marketing plans for the Xperia Z4, and correspondence about strategy and promotional tie-ins also revealed a few renders that sure looked ...

    Forget the rumors surrounding the LG G4 for a second, there's another phone to discuss now. A couple months back, we first heard of an LG phone flying under the codename LS770 being approved by the FCC in the United States; at the time, we weren't quite sure what the phone was, although we did know of the existence of ...

    Halo is definitely one of Microsoft’s crown jewels, and one of the biggest differentiators in its Xbox platform. The launch of Halo: Spartan Assault on Windows Phone, Windows 8.1 and Steam made a lot of sense two years ago, as these were all platforms where Microsoft wanted to use the Halo brand to extend mindshare. ...

The service does have a significant amount of limitations so far, like for example being an iOS exclusive, at a time when the world is full of Android phones. If live ...

    We've been waiting for ZTE to launch the Nubia Z9 for ages by this point, with leaks dating all the way back to last fall. The manufacturer has already gone public with a couple Z9 family members (Z9 Max pictured above), but the Z9 itself has so far been waiting for its own moment to step into the spotlight. Today we ...

    When all the content we were looking for online existed as websites, Google's job was pretty straightforward: index that content and connect us to the most relevant among it based on our search queries. But as apps rise to fill some of those spaces once occupied by websites alone, Google's had to adjust. One big way ...

    How do you get written data onto your smartphone or tablet? You can take a picture and process it with an app like Microsoft Office Lens. A stylus will let you write directly on your device's screen, and while some of the capacitive ones can be a little unsatisfying, setups taking advantage of a dedicated digitizer ...

    When Google Cardboard premiered at I/O last summer, it felt like some odd combination of a joke, an afterthought, and maybe a passing distraction. After all, Google couldn't really be serious about a passive VR viewer that was little more than a couple lenses and a cheap frame, could it? But what Cardboard lacked in ...

    Carriers have any number of reasons for why they begin and end sales of smartphones when they do. New phones may arrive due to freshly inked deals with manufacturers, and vanish to make room for new models. So when word arrived yesterday that T-Mobile was halting sales of last fall's ZTE Zmax phablet, you might not have ...

First we heard that Sony was considering ditching the product name, and that all the leaks we saw were based on the Sony Xperia Z3 Neo, and then other leaks claim a more-powerful Sony Xperia ...
