    Xiaomi is a company we didn't have a lot of experience with before last month, and understandably so. The Chinese company is only four years old and didn't start expanding its business internationally until last year. Clearly, the company is doing something right, though. Its Mi3 handset from earlier this year has ...

    Smartphone security is a constant struggle. Attackers identify vulnerabilities, vendors rush to release patches, and the cycle repeats in perpetuity.

    Back in June, we learned that Barnes & Noble was planning something different for its line of Nook tablets, and rather than continuing to put out its own hardware, the retailer would be partnering with Samsung for the release of some co-branded tablets. We were told that a seven-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook would be the ...

    The Amazon Fire Phone is a pretty interesting device, but it comes with the Amazon Appstore instead of the Google Play Store. What if you want some other apps? Because the Fire Phone is based on Android, you're in luck! Just like other Android-powered devices, you can sideload applications right onto the device, but the ...

    If there was a unicorn of a device for mobile tech geeks the world over, it was a Lumia device running Android. Well, we finally got one, and it kind of sucked. But if there’s a step below a unicorn, maybe a pegasus, or leprechaun, or even a portly saint in a jolly red suit, it’s probably the HTC One M8 running ...

    When we take a look at any smartphone these days that's not a flagship, design isn't usually something that stands out as a selling point. That's why when Sprint and Sharp went official with the Aquos Crystal earlier today, we were quite impressed; one look at that top side with nearly zero bezel, and we were blown away ...

    When the HTC One M8 for Windows went official this morning, many breathed a sigh of frustration upon hearing that the handset would be exclusive to Verizon Wireless's cellular network here in the United States. But information out of AT&T this evening suggests that this exclusive won't be around for too long, as the ...

    One of the biggest complaints that Windows and Windows Phone users have with both of these platforms, is how hot features get killed for no particular reason. Surely there must be a reason for these features to die, but you'd assume that the evolution of a platform should only make it look and perform better. Such is ...

    We spend so much time talking about things like screen size on smartphones, display resolution, and the presence (or absence) of bezels, that it's easy to forget that not all smartphone users place such a premium on a handset's visual output. For those of us with varying degrees of impaired eyesight, today's phones ...

    For some, size does matter, and one-handed usability doesn't. Such is the case of the Galaxy Mega lineup that was unveiled last year, and which received a decent amount of acceptance from the market, even though many considered it to be "too big for average use." If you thought Samsung's experiment was finished there, ...

    Yesterday we picked up on a rumor that Sprint was about to welcome its first Sharp Aquos smartphone to its lineup, with word that the Aquos Crystal would be announced today. At least, Sprint was teasing a “take the edge off” announcement and the Aquos Crystal sports a blink-and-you-miss-it super-thin bezel. Connect ...
