    The Office pool has grown just a bit larger. ASUS signed with Microsoft to include the latter's suite of productivity apps. After a few bouts of fighting, so has Samsung. Acer thought it was time to do the same as it will begin pre-loading Microsoft productivity apps such as Word and Skype on its Android wares ...

    How prescient. LG has gone ahead either in sardonic fashion or a state of hubris and blasted out a new version of its "touch-enabled Quick Cover" case, explicitly for the "speculative LG G5." We were first introduced to some of the new features this Quick Cover will have back when the K10 got its own case. The usual ...

    This device looks like it's going to be one of those devices that will keep leaking until the last minute. But hey, we might as well enjoy the ride with the LG G5. After our rumor roundup comes this Geekbench readout which features no real surprises from our expectations. The G5, which is assumed to go by the model ...

    Love it or hate it, it's hard to deny that the NuAns Neo with its two-tone, multi-color (to say nothing of multi-material) back panel is one of the most eye-catching Windows 10 Mobile smartphones we've seen to date – and arguably ever will. When we first learned about the phone last month, the hardware sounded pretty ...

    There are plenty of reasons you might want to be critical of Sony's smartphone game, from the slow-to-evolve design language of its handsets, to a hard-to-predict launch schedule, to a failure to make its phones widely available in some popular markets. But the one thing it's hard to complain about is the degree to ...

    Whether we're interacting with a new social network, organizing a get-together, or just sending out some old-fashioned emails, there are a lot of good reasons for an app to tap into our ever-growing list of personal contacts.

    Part of using Gmail means being cool with the fact that Google and its algorithms are constantly scanning your mail (in a hopefully not-at-all-creepy kind of way), using that data to tailor ads for you, as well as advanced features like automatically recognizing messages about upcoming events and adding them to your ...

    Alcatel OneTouch came to CES ready to show off some new hardware, introducing us to devices like the Windows 10 Mobile edition of the Fierce XL, which just landed at T-Mobile today. But for all the cool stuff we saw then, we've had an inkling that the main attraction was holding back for MWC. And indeed, in the weeks ...

    Apple's getting into the home stretch of development for iOS 9.3, and a couple days back we saw the company release its latest beta build for the developer community. That's well and good for them, but what about the rest of us? Well, a final 9.3 release is probably still a few weeks away, but with the arrival of iOS 9 ...

    Adobe Flash helped make the internet what it is today, bringing us streaming video, interactive games, and –yes- some very annoying ads. But the internet's been doing a lot of growing up lately, and between steep processing and memory requirements, to say nothing of security vulnerability after security vulnerability, ...

    What draws you to one social network over another? They've all got their particular hooks, but sometimes it's less what one offers, and more what it doesn't. For Twitter, that's meant a focus on simplicity: you follow users, and you see their tweets – and when you follow multiple users, everyone's tweets get sorted ...

    When the original Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL variant debuted on T-Mobile and MetroPCS last fall, the affordable 5.5-inch Android understandably went unnoticed by most smartphone consumers, as it simply faced too much direct opposition, including from higher-profile brands, to stand out from the pack. But the Windows 10 ...

    Back in October, when Android 6.0 was barely making its way over-the-air to “pure Google” Nexus devices, Sony vowed to update a whopping 14 Xperia phones and tablets to sweet Marshmallow… eventually. Between then and now however, only a small fraction of Z3 and Z3 Compact owners worldwide got a sample of Doze ...

    Aside from the ever-expanding Honor family of ridiculously cheap phones, and high-profile product rosters like G, P or Mate, Huawei tends to overcrowd the market a little with lesser known, low-key Android handhelds also, most of which are targeted at specific countries or regions.

    Irony in its purest form: a phone that’s over two years old and was never considered a powerhouse currently runs a newer version of Android than a 2015 flagship, at least outside Korea and Poland. Even more ironic, not to mention damaging for the reputation of semi-recent high-enders, is Marshmallow software doesn’t ...
