    The big news from OnePlus today concerns how it's selling the flagship One, doing away with invites and limited-time sales windows for good. But that's not the only thing that's happening with the phone today, and OnePlus's Carl Pei announced on social media that OTA distribution of the just-released CyanongenMod 12S ...

You've got LTE reception for mobile data, Bluetooth to talk to your accessories, and WiFi for data at home or work. But there's another radio inside many phones that can tap in to a ton of totally free news and ...

    Microsoft hasn't had much fame over the last couple of years for its timeliness in launching products, and well, we don't blame them for switching CEOs to fix that, among other things. The new Microsoft we've seen over the last few months has launched a bevy of products for multiple platforms, even though we do know ...

    Samsung may be the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but you'd be shocked to know how little it sells in certain countries. To give you an example, Apple owns 51.1% of the Japanese market share, and as for Samsung, 5.6%, and no we didn't get that number wrong. The company is willing to do anything to gain ...

    It’s such a small and subtle variation on the standard Galaxy S6 that Samsung didn’t even decide to capitalize its brand name. But don’t be fooled by the understatement: as we discovered on other bold devices from our recent history, it’s amazing what a little curve can do. Editor's Note: This companion ...

    The Snapdragon 810 may be the system-on-a-chip powering the hot new smartphones of the moment – devices like the just-launched Sony Xperia Z4 – but the next big thing is already around the corner, and early last month Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 820. The big news for that chip sounded like it would be ...

    There's a major shake-up happening for Android tablets right now, and after years of manufacturers preferring models that mirrored their smartphone offerings with widescreen 16:9 or 16:10 displays, there's been a recent push towards the squarer 4:3 screens long associated with Apple's iPad lineup. We've already seen 4:3 ...

    It's hard to be happy for either Microsoft or Nokia after the whole mobile division buyout. It's been almost a year since the deal happened and we still don't see a flagship Lumia from Microsoft's administration. Microsoft is still entitled to use the Nokia brand until next year as part of the deal, and if you're ...

    Even though jailbreaking isn't as popular as it was a few years ago, there is still a very active community working on cracking Apple's code. iOS 8.4 beta 1 was released a few weeks ago to developers, and even though the list of changes isn't vast, the new Music app does prove to be a worthy reason to upgrade. If you ...

    Apple has been famous for battling boot up times since the launch of the second-generation MacBook Air. People were clearly in shock when they saw a computer startup from scratch to a lock screen in just a second or two, and that has been the standard for most Macs running on a solid state drive. Sadly the story is ...

    Alcatel OneTouch isn't the first smartphone maker to package its review samples in neat-looking press kits, but it's definitely caught our attention with its latest oversized box. With a magnetic flap, multilayered reveal process and mechanical "slide-to-unlock" lever, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3's review packaging is ...

    Amazon's Fire tablets make for a tricky proposition. They're not quite the full-blown Android experience some shoppers expect, with the same tight integration with Google apps and services you'll find on something like a Nexus model (or even a Galaxy Tab). That said, Amazon's own Fire OS fork can still manage to hit a ...

    After spending some time in Singapore with the Oppo N3 a few months ago, I won't deny that I was really interested in taking the device for a spin. Smartphone designs have become dull lately, with predictable camera setups and the usual controls. For that reason alone, it's hard for our inner geek to not be excited ...

    With Apple Watch pre-orders upon us, and the smartwatch set to hit customer hands (well, wrists) soon, it's easy to get so wrapped-up in Apple's chapter of the wearable story that we gloss over what's happening with Android Wear. Sure, the other week's announcement about newly curated watchfaces and straps wasn't so ...

Was new hardware ready to make its debut? Could we be seeing the launch of the OnePlus 2 already? As it turns out, we're not getting any new device at all, but that ...

Finally all the rumors can come to an end as Sony announces the Xperia Z4, one ...

    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 ...
