    Even though Apple's App Store certification process is a developer's worse nightmare, it has done a great job in keeping iOS free from many of the emerging malware trends of the last few years. Sadly that particular topic changes every day, so there's no guarantee that your device is completely safe from any sort of ...

    Earlier this week, Sony dropped a bit of a surprise on us all, announcing the Xperia Z4 for Japan – a quiet press event, no international spectacle, just a new phone that isn't even confirmed yet for global release. It wasn't long after the Z4 went official that we started hearing a rumor about Sony's intentions for a ...

    HTC is clearly looking to expand to other markets that go beyond just smartphones, tablets and wearables. The HTC Vive is a clear example of the company taking Virtual Reality further, and even the word further is an understatement to Michael's experience with the Vive at MWC 2015. Still, this is not the only emerging ...

    With two solid months passing between the release of the first Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones and this month's new version, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Microsoft might be taking its sweet time before a third build was ready to go live. Or maybe, at the very least, that we'd finally fall into that ...

    There's a war going on in the smartphone world right now, not one between platforms, or even between manufacturers: it's a war where everybody is fighting against bezels. Say what you will about practicality: a phone where its display runs right up to the handset's edge is an incredibly attractive prospect, and ...

    We learned last fall that Huawei knows a thing or two about fancy packaging … but this is taking things to a whole new level. As we described in our hands-on post last week, the Huawei P8 is the company's 2015 flagship offering, a 6.4mm-thin, 144g slab of steel that's currently the thinnest smartphone in our Boston ...

    There was a time when Samsung spent a good deal of money on an ad campaign that made fun of iPhone users for being "Wall Huggers." In a way, Samsung was right back then, as the battery life of previous iPhones was terrible, and having a replaceable battery on most Samsung Galaxy devices was an advantage. Now, what ...

    Microsoft has shown a significant level of interest in supporting the Apple Watch since it was announced.

    We first caught sight of Google's Android 5.1.1 update back at the start of the month, mentioned in the release of a new SDK. Then last week, 5.1.1 was showing up on some official Android dev pages, measuring Nexus family audio latency. It sure felt like a release could happen at any moment, but when? Well, today's our ...

    You guessed it, today is "Patch Tuesday," a day when bugs get dealt with, or when what wasn't broken, shouldn't have gotten fixed. Microsoft launched a good deal of security patches for most of its versions of Windows last Tuesday, and so far, we haven't heard any complaints. Today however, even though we do have a ...

    BLU (Bold Like Us) is a fairly new smartphone manufacturer. Well, they're really a white-label manufacturer, meaning that they often rebrand phones made by other manufacturers in order to sell them in different markets.

    It would be fantastic if devices that once supported a service were guaranteed to keep doing so for years and years to come – that if Netflix works on your TV today, or your car streams Pandora, that it will keep right on working through future server-end upgrades. Sadly, that's not necessarily the case, and given ...

    Those who pre-ordered an Apple Watch have been in a bit of a weird situation; at first, the pushed-back delivery dates may have seemed disheartening, with many dates pushing well into summer. But then reports arrived suggesting the Watch would ship on time, and then reports contradicting that very claim. There wasn't ...
