    While Sony appears to be seriously considering the retirement of its mid-range Xperia C and M smartphone families after the high-end Z lineup “reached its culmination”, the entry-level E roster isn’t going anywhere. We suspected as much roughly a month ago, when a mysterious low to mid-end F3311 model was ...

    It’s not only China that should make Apple investors nervous on the heels of a steep Q1 decline in global iPhone sales, as the world’s most profitable corporation seems to have little room for growth in many Western markets as well, while a few emerging ones aren’t warming up to costly iDevices yet.

    Let's talk iPhone audio once again. Because the headphone jack just wasn't enough. Through NowhereElse.fr, we see this example of what is said to be an Italian-manufactured accessory case for the iPhone 7. Two things strike out in this design: number one, the four speakers adorning each corner of the device and; number ...

    It seems that we can very nearly confirm Evan Blass's reporting on Motorola using the "Moto Z" brand in some way. The company has a trademark application filed at the US Patent and Trademark for the term dated May 17. In his VentureBeat article, Blass detailed how the Moto Z term would replace the Moto X branding on ...

But while we can talk about Catcher Technology's confidence despite an all-glass iPhone in 2017, let's talk about another favorite iPhone 7s/iPhone 8 aspect, the OLED screen. ...

It was an interesting phone, running the earliest builds of Windows 10 for mobile, and packed a few neat tricks like an iris scanner to unlock the device. Plus you could count on the ...

    Some lucky people were able to snag some free goodies with the purchase of a then-new Lumia 950 XL. As short-lived as those promotions were and for how little we knew about the phones then, snagging some Continuum with your new Windows 10 Mobile device was pretty nifty. Well, if you're a Briton still thinking about ...
