    While Android users tend to almost exclusively point the finger at the manufacturers of their devices or mobile carriers for delays in update deliveries or premature software support termination, there are actually a number of criteria a phone has to meet before getting an essential OS makeover. And sometimes, it’s ...

    Well, that escalated quickly. Just 24 hours ago, we had no idea Sony was even planning an Xperia Z5 Compact sequel of sorts. Branded differently, of course, as the Z line reached its “culmination” a few months back. Now, not only do we have official confirmation from one of the company’s European divisions the ...

    Maybe to better appreciate the software support efforts of a few unjustly criticized Android device manufacturers, false alarms like the one issued in Netherlands earlier this week are needed. It turns out Samsung never planned to leave the summer 2014-released high-end Galaxy Tab S stranded on a desert Lollipop island, ...

    We're eating our hats. We bet the house on OnePlus's whole "V2" reveal today to be on another version of the OnePlus Icons. Turns out that those classy little things won't get replaced anytime soon. Instead, we'll have to think standard. Or re-think what comes standard. The OnePlus Bullets (V2) are replacing the $15 ...

    The beloved, if design-maligned Nexus 5 is not unofficially dead just yet. Within a day of Google dropping the Android Nougat images for certain Nexus devices that aren't the Nexus 5, XDA developers have been figuring out a build for the fan favorite phone. One did so, though it's a rough edit — so rough that ...

    If you're looking for something that'll work between Lantau Island, Aberdeen and the Lo Wu border crossing on the cheap, Motorola has a more sustainable option for you. The Moto E3 Power is now on sale in, of all places, the city of Hong Kong. If you're thinking that it looks like the Moto G4 Play, you'd certainly not ...

    NSO Group is the reason why you should probably install iOS 9.3.5. Apple released the update today to address three previously unknown vulnerabilities that were exploited two weeks ago when spyware from the Israel-based organization targeted Ahmed Mansoor, a human rights activist hailing from the United Arab Emirates. ...

    LG may get the first word in for putting out the first Android Nougat smartphone on September 6. But that's just word. Not phones in boxes being sent through a postal delivery system. Instead, the HTC-made Nexus devices — rumored to debut on October 4 — will actually ship first. That's the word according to Android ...

    Apple's supply chain for the iPhone and other devices has been suffering as sales have slid over the past year. Worse yet, as Apple continues to demand lower prices for more labor and more products, we see companies trying to push back on the giant. It's still not enough for the people toiling at the factories, though, ...

    Sony pulled some premature jocularity on its Czech site in touting a couple of new phones before their times. One of the phones is the Xperia XZ, a phone which may end up being the Xperia XR or the F8331 phone we've been tracking for a while. Can't these branding folk let the Z go? The just-revealed Xperia X Compact is ...

    iOS 9.3 may have done Apple's software reliability in for this quarter, at least according to Blancco Technology Group. The firm has been tracking device failure rates for some time now and this is the first quarter where iOS fails outgrew Android ones. How badly? Proportionally to each side, iPhones had a 58 percent ...

    Can't wait for the next iPhones to come out? Thinking of getting an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus but it's just too darn expensive? Don't want to settle for a refurb or pre-owned unit? T-Mobile has your number, but only if you've got another iPhone you can trade in. You can get a 16GB iPhone 6s for only $100 if you trade in an ...

    Well, that didn’t take long. Samsung globally launched the high-end Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones in four "standard" colors way back in March, then added pink gold (not rose gold) to the paint job selection just a month later, but only in Korea. Today, after an excruciating, seemingly hopeless waiting period, ...

    With the already hugely successful Galaxy Note 7 unveiled early to get a head start on the iPhone 7 (or 6SE), LG feeling confident enough in the G5-similar sequel to the surprisingly popular V10 to give it its own special announcement event in San Francisco, and Apple of course not looking to share the spotlight with ...

    We are reaching a point in technology where hardware is plateauing. Moreover, devices are getting better and better and staying viable for longer because of it. Last year’s phone is almost as good as this year’s phone. So, we find ourselves not very motivated to upgrade. This has been shown in smartphone buying ...

Still, even with the Xperia Z brand out the door, a ...

    Can a discontinued 8 year-old little Symbian phone with a passé physical QWERTY keyboard technically be still considered a bribe? Probably not, since it would take a miracle for its 369 MHz ARM11 processor (remember those?) and 128MB RAM (yes, really) to even handle a basic Google search nowadays. In fact, outside of a ...

But it’s the good kind of confusing, as every new Redmi installment is special in some way, shape, or form, as well as absurdly cheap ...
