    Coming off the launch of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad mini 3, and iPad Air 2, Apple looked like it was going to have a pretty good quarter.

    Motorola loves making smartphones, obviously, but more than that it might love putting those smartphones on sale. This time last year, it seemed like we were seeing deal after deal in an effort to get the Moto X into the hands of as many shoppers as possible – and in particular, we were getting word of a special ...

    Going back several weeks now, we've been eagerly awaiting Apple to deliver iOS 8.1.3.

    Samsung is expected to try something a little different with the design of its flagship Galaxy S6 this year, but just how far away from its comfort zone will the manufacturer stray. Some rumors, like those of curving displays, are easy enough to believe, given the company’s history with models like the Note Edge. But ...

    If last week was all about leaked HTC One M9 pics, this week is becoming one where descriptions of the hardware reign supreme. We started things out yesterday with the controversial assertion that the pics of last week are little but decoy/prototype hardware, and that the commercial One M9 design will differ ...

    Over the years, Twitter's been evolving from a blank 140-character slate to deliver users more and more features. It used to be that you had to manually shorten URLs, until Twitter automated the process. And you used to need third-party image hosts until Twitter started accepting uploads itself. With video, the ...

    Flagships, mid-tier, and entry-level phones. Each have their own demographic target. Each carefully balances pros versus cons, and power versus price. Flagships generally cost between US$400 and $600 for smartphones, and a couple hundred more for phablets. Mid-tier phones typically run about half that, though things ...

    Folks, this topic will either become subject to one of the most accurate reports and leaks of the year so far, or it will turn out to be the biggest smoke curtain/rumor fails of 2015. TL;DR: the next Samsung flagship will not pack Qualcomm's latest and greatest, the Snapdragon 810. There were a lot of Samsung Galaxy S6 ...

    Weeks ago, an interesting new "superphone" crossed our news desk, claiming to put to shame competitors with a spec sheet that can only be described as stunning. At the time, it seemed as though it were a bit of a pipe dream, but when we went hands-on with it at CES 2015 we started warming up to the idea of the phone ...

    Usually, when a mobile device sale is made at a retailer, the device being bought has been officially announced. That's fairly common sense, you'd think, but it seems that around two months ago something oddly different happened. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S line of tablets has only come to Verizon Wireless in its 10.5-inch ...

    We've all complained over how Samsung has diluted the Galaxy brand with so many devices over the last couple of years. The recent shakeups and changes have pointed to the company doing significant changes in order to re-gain the same popularity its Galaxy brand had a few years ago.

We've seen the company launch a bevy of powerful smartphones last year, like the gigantic Ascend Mate 7, and we've been hearing that there are some bold plans in store for MWC 2015.
