    It certainly was both odd and ominous to see Microsoft tight-lipped about the box-office scores of its flagging Lumia roster for the April – June timeframe in an otherwise comprehensive full fiscal 2016 report. After all, in sickness and in health (mostly sickness recently), for better or worse (primarily worse), the ...

    It’s probably going to be a little while until someone challenges the Xiaomi Redmi Pro for the title of world’s cheapest smartphone with a dual rear camera setup, but as far as the toughest such model goes, we have a winner today.

    The best of yesteryear (or perhaps maybe even two years ago) may arrive in a more modern suit and at an affordable price tag. That's if you're a fan of Samsung. We're picking up data from GFXBench of the SM-A810, what's believed to be the successor to the incredibly thin SM-A800 or the Galaxy A8. An Exynos 7420 powers ...

    Xiaomi's more price-aggressive brand, Redmi, has a new phone out simply called the Redmi Pro. It starts at the equivalent of about $225, but it also has a full HD OLED screen — something rare at this price point. Samsung, which produced the Xiaomi Mi 5's OLED panels, did not produce the Redmi Pro's screens, though. ...

    The iPhone 7 has spanned the world in leaks, but this one comes from relatively unfamiliar Vietnam — and no, it doesn't even show off one of those manufactured shells, though the leaker supposedly got this little treasure from a Foxconn affiliate plant. It comes in the form of a video showing off what is believed to ...

    This supposed phablet started out in the rumor mills as the Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Since then, we've been trying to parse together the ins and outs, the hairpins and straightaways, and all of the jokes claiming that six was too afraid of seven because the marketing team got involved. We are T minus five days to the next ...

    Lost in the moment of the Moto Z lineup is Lenovo's PHAB lineup, a more obscure trio of phones with one bearing the distinction of being the fruit of Lenovo and Google's Project Tango partnership. That said, Lenovo didn't switch away from its international "Vibe" branding, it only just added to it.

    Could it still be possible? Certainly not. But what if… no, it’s best to go with your reason rather than your gut, and nip all hopes of ever being able to buy a flat-screened Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in the bud. That’s obviously easier said than done when a weirdly advanced, functional and fairly smooth-operating ...

    If the cornucopia of recent leaks is of any indication, the upcoming Galaxy Note7 will feature a USB Type-C port. All of the leaked images and renders (like the one above from @evleaks), seem to testify that the Micro USB on the bottom is gone. Thankfully the headphone jack port is still in. It is also common knowledge, ...

    Anyone planning to make a stop in Berlin, Germany during a late summer/early fall Eurotrip to catch one of the oldest, largest industrial exhibitions in the world is probably disheartened by Samsung’s decision to not only “unpack” the Galaxy Note 7 a full month ahead of IFA, but possibly launch the thing in August ...

But after the early enthusiasm regarding the ...

    Yeah, yeah, we know, it makes little sense to dub the 2016 incremental 6s upgrade the iPhone 7 if Apple indeed plans to switch to a three-year tick-tock-tock release cycle. But iPhone 6SE is still too much of a mouthful, and iPhone 2016 doesn’t sound very... marketable. For the time being, we’ll continue referring ...
