    Facebook is doing its best to make its proprietary social platforms bigger and better. Services like Facebook Messenger have grown significantly in popularity, but not at the same speed as services like Whatsapp, which Facebook also owns.

    Apple may not be your favorite technology company, and it's first-generation smartwatch might be a little pricey for your taste, but any device that outstrips the competition's annual sales in a single day demands attention. Our own Adam Doud stayed up pretty late a few weeks back to order up a Sport edition, and now ...

    Even with Apple's current struggle to meet demand for the Apple Watch, that doesn't mean that a few devices were ordered for the sake of drama.

Now, what users weren't prepared for is for the iPhone to not behave the same way after pairing the Apple Watch, and ...

    Sony's a brand with more history in consumer electronics than most other smartphone companies, but that head start hasn't translated into a top spot in the market. Instead, Sony's struggled to find its place, and that's meant making some tough decisions – such as not wasting a lot of time fighting in extremely ...

    “You get what you pay for.” We’ve all heard that before. The philosophy is simple: inexpensive products are shoddy, pricey ones are premium. Working for two years as a sales rep at T-Mobile, I’ve seen countless customers come in to complain about their $100 smartphone, only for an overhearing bystander holding ...

    A few reports about underwhelming Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge sales aren't about to ruffle Samsung's feathers; far from it, and rather than finding itself with more GS6-series phones in stock than it knows what to do with, Samsung is supposedly scrambling to keep production moving at a brisk enough pace to keep up with ...

    Last year, Huawei delivered a wearable that pulled double duty, going well beyond the normal feature set of fitness trackers to offer one that transformed into a Bluetooth earpiece: the TalkBand B1.

    It wasn't that long ago that almost every mobile operating system (and variant thereof) was heavily stylized after tangible items that we come across every day. Notepads apps looked like legal pads, volume controls looked like dials and knobs, toggle buttons looked like switches, and so on. Pushing beyond just tangible ...

    If you're anything like us, you want to know numbers (or at least estimates) regarding Apple's success, or lack thereof, with the Apple Watch. Well, TL;DR on the Apple Watch vs Android Wear sales situation: Apple apparently sold more of its own watches in a day than all Android Wear devices in an entire year. According ...

    Phones have hit a bit of a lull of late. From a design perspective, you’ve got your candy bars and you’ve got...absolutely nothing else. Every flagship that comes out these days is a black slab phone, 4.7 – 6 inches in size with some kind of material/color on the back. Maybe it’s leather, maybe it’s metal, ...

    With the Sony Xperia Z3 returning to T-Mobile shelves, we've been thinking about phones with short-lived lifespans (even with the Z3 dodging the bullet in this case). We may soon have a new one to add to that list, with the arrival of as-of-yet unsubstantiated reports that Microsoft is in the process of shutting down ...

    About three weeks back, T-Mobile appeared to drop the Sony Xperia Z3 from its retail lineup. The phone no longer appeared for purchase on the company's website, and inquiries with the carrier over social media were met with confirmation that “the Z3 is no longer available.” While it was a little odd to see sales ...
