    Expos like IFA give us the chance to see lots of new hardware launch, but not every device that shows up at these trade shows is necessarily ready to step all the way into the spotlight.

    Sony just launched its latest Xperia-series smartphones, and from the Z5 Compact to the Z5 Premium, they're all running Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoCs.

    The original Gear S, which we reviewed late last year, was a hulking brute of a bracelet. For its sequel, Samsung sticks to the basics –Tizen OS, wristbound chassis– but almost everything else has been rebuilt, repackaged, or repainted into one of the most attractive wearables of IFA 2015.

    Are smartwatches getting more expensive? Call it a side effect of more polished designs, higher-end hardware, or even just the realization that consumers will actually pay these loftier sums, but whatever the cause, while we once saw a good number of wearables launching in the $200 price range, with more recent crops of ...

    What do you do when you want to build a phone that has the perfect blend of price, design, and specs? If you're HTC, you create a Desire phone. We've been fairly pleased with how well the HTC Desire lineup has been performing recently and we've even gone as far as calling them "a mid-tier phone with flagship DNA" and ...

    LG’s IFA 2015 product lineup looks exotic, to say the least, with the decidedly nichey Watch Urbane Luxe and Rolly Keyboard showcased in Berlin, alongside the unremarkable G Pad II 10.1.

    Based solely on their top-shelf specifications and premium designs, the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and especially the Z5 Premium look like Sony’s best chances in a long time to turn a mobile profit.
