    Following a holiday season that saw it both breaking profit records and falling short of sales expectations, and its first year-on-year quarterly revenue dip in over a decade, Apple needs a box-office winner more than ever, and it needs it soon.

    Talk might be cheap, and insulting Apple for its recent lack of innovation, product lineup rigidity and datedness seems to have become a rite of passage of sorts for China-based tech companies aspiring to global relevance.

    Should you upgrade from the LG G4 to the spanking new, modular G5? How about from the nearly two year-old G3? Any self-respecting Android power user would yell out a resolute “hell, yeah” to at least the latter question, but the truth is you can probably hold on to the LG G3 a while longer without worrying of ...

    Before you even think it, don’t go there. Just… don’t. We know it may feel like Apple is boldly swimming against the tide in trying to bring compact phones back in the spotlight, but Android manufacturers such as Sony never gave up on diminutive flagships.

    We’re probably only a couple of months away from the launch of the fourth-generation Motorola Moto X, following in the footsteps of last year’s Moto X Style, aka X Pure Edition.

    Forget one or two flagship phones. Huawei appears to want to break some sort of record, working on a high-end Mate 9 phablet even after recently unveiling the premium P9 and P9 Plus, and gearing up to announce the equally top-notch Honor V8 on May 10. It’s market flooding at its best, but chances are the P9 duo and ...
