    Smartphones are commonplace today. Almost everyone has one. My grandmother carries an iPhone and my father – a man who once swore he'd never carry a phone with him anywhere – slaps a Samsung Galaxy S III with an OtterBox case on his hip every morning. It wasn't always so. I remember being the only person at my high ...

    It's hard to imagine somebody willing to switch from one smartphone platform to another just because of the exiting features of a voice assistant, especially because either of these can evolve over time. Siri was much less capable than it is today, and the same can be said about Google's Voice Search, but Microsoft ...

    A couple weeks back, we saw Kyocera release a video teasing some upcoming tech we'd be finding in its smartphones. Normally, this isn't a company we expect to see pushing many limits, but this time we were intrigued, as it was talking about sapphire screens. As we look forward to see if Apple's really delivering its ...

    When you notice that the word "Bolt" has nothing to do with photo chatting, nor even voice chatting, you wonder what goes through the minds of the people that use this name for apps that do just that. Such is the case of Instagram and the possible Snapchat competitor that was discovered a couple of days ago, and the ...

    Don't say we didn't warn you, as we knew the Nokia X wouldn't last long under Microsoft's wing. We spent the last couple of years dreaming of a Nokia Android phone, but the thought of a low-end Nokia device running a forked version of Android was not the idea.

    Platform exclusivity has always been something smartphone users have had to deal with. There's little worse than hearing about a great new game, or powerful new productivity tool, only to learn that it's not out for your OS of choice. In recent years, the situation's gotten a bit better, especially when it comes to high ...

    Purchasing an iPhone on any Apple Store can be as convenient as it is a burden. On any launch day it's always easier to find iPhones at an Apple Store than at carrier stores, but you're always stuck with he burden of not being able to take advantage of US Carrier Early Upgrade Programs. You were forced to go for either ...

    Apple is notoriously famous for being a late bloomer when it comes to adding new hardware features to its iPhone lineup. Still, we must admit that in most of these cases, the late adoption of certain technology has allowed Apple to find smarter ways to use it. We've been using NFC on Android smartphones for years, and ...

    Are we ever going to see Samsung's first commercial Tizen-running smartphone, the Samsung Z, go up for sale? After its early June launch, Samsung said the Z would make its retail debut in Russia sometime in Q3. But then a few weeks back we heard reports from a Moscow developer's event that Samsung was pulling its ...

    There's a new Samsung Galaxy model on the horizon, at least according to the multiple leaks we got to check out last week, with a bunch of good-quality images depicting a metal-rimmed Galaxy Alpha. The phone is clearly smaller than the Galaxy S5, though it manages to keep some of the same features of the full-sized ...

    It's been nearly a year a year now since we saw HTC deliver its last Windows Phone offering, the unremarkable 8XT. And while that model drew its hardware inspiration from the earlier 8X and 8S, we couldn't help but wonder what might be possible if HTC took a few notes from its Android lineup – and specifically, from ...

    Remember back in the days of Android Gingerbread when ambitious OEMs started pumping out Android-powered tablets in an attempt to compete with Apple's iPad? Google pulled out all the stops to get Android Honeycomb released, and even partnered with Motorola to create the XOOM to show us all how a tablet "should be made". ...
