    Even with the lukewarm reception that the HTC One M9 has received, this hasn't stopped the company from launching device alternatives like the HTC One M9+ and the HTC One E9+ in the Asian market. There is still no word as to when we can expect any of these models in the rest of the world, but it seems that HTC is at it ...

    Even though the Samsung Galaxy S6 is not the perfect smartphone, with major opportunity areas in the device's battery life, the device compensates with providing users with one of the best mobile cameras in the industry. The tendency that Samsung began with the Galaxy Note 4 only got better with the company's new ...

    Apple is in desperate need to get iPads to sell again, even if the company doesn't state it explicitly. Worldwide tablet sales have been on decline for years now, and most analysts predict this has a lot to do with phablets. We've heard a ton of rumors of what the iPad Pro might be after some case-maker leaks, but today ...

    Apple has made a substantial push into the Chinese market, as the company claims that there is tremendous amount of opportunity there. As such, out of the crazy 61 million of iPhones that Apple sold last quarter, 13.5 million units were sold to China alone. For a minute we thought that number wasn't much when you do the ...

    Right now, Tizen doesn't seem like a very big part of Samsung's mobile offerings – but that could be well on its way to changing. Tizen continues to make inroads on Samsung's wearable lineup, but its role in smartphones themselves has been a little lackluster. Initial Samsung Z plans fell apart, and so far we've only ...

    As Sony gets ready to bring Android Lollipop to the original Xperia Z, we've got updates for classic phones on our mind. As smartphones age, there's less and less chance of them continuing to receive official updates, and once a couple years pass, ongoing updates seem to be the exception rather than the rule. For owners ...

    Sony is neck deep in Lollipop updates right now, and when it's not seeding the latest Android builds for its flagship Xperia Z-series models, it's making a few available for lesser-ranked Xperia handsets. But really, it's the Z devices that are the stars of Sony's Lollipop show, and it's been working its way back ...

    We rounded-out last week by hearing some rumors about upcoming Microsoft Lumia hardware, describing a pair of seriously high-end-sounding Lumia handsets, outfitted with quad HD displays, 3GB of RAM, and all the latest silicon. These two phones, codenamed Cityman and Talkman, sounded pretty incredible, but was there even ...

    Samsung's got a marketing deal with Marvel – that much has been clear – but just how far are the companies planning to take their arrangement? A couple months back we were talking about the idea of some custom-colored Galaxy S6 handsets to correspond with the new Avengers film, and checked out one designer's awesome ...

    The official North American commercial launch of the ASUS ZenFone 2 may not fall until May 18, but that hasn't stopped plenty of retailers from taking an early crack at the smartphone; hell, it's been on Amazon through various merchants since March.

    So far this year, Samsung hasn't had much in the way of exciting new tablets. Sure, there have been devices like the Galaxy Tab 3 V or the Galaxy Tab A, but none of them with really killer hardware; if anything, the only notable move has been the way Samsung switched to a 4:3 aspect screen for the Tab A. But while the ...

    "The affordable, high-end smartphone is no longer a pipe dream." Those are the words Taylor Martin used to describe the OnePlus One - and he was right. OnePlus seemed to emerge from the shadows, a Chinese manufacturer who apparently wanted to undercut everyone else, especially OEMs who create expensive flagships that ...

They all have all the basic apps and the same rectangular touchscreens these days. Anyway, LG was boasting about it's new ...

    You know? I was willing to let it slide when just one OEM was doing it, but now that it seems to be becoming a trend, maybe it’s time to say something. A lot of us are obsessed with the design and build quality of modern smartphones, and we’re becoming more and more aware of the materials that our phones are built ...

    If you have an HTC One mini 2 (aka One M8 mini), like we do, you are wondering when exactly will you receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, just like your friends rocking the One M8. Currently, the One mini 2 is running Android 4.4.2, and it sure looks like that's what it will stay one. In October of last year, HTC ...
