    Two iterations of the Galaxy A series has brought some big specification bumps and some major edits as to what we should think of as an "mid-range" phone at a "mid-range" price.

    Miami-based smartphone maker BLU has a new design up for its website. Well, at least the homepage — the rest of the sections still need a brush up from 2014. But their section listing now differs a bit from its still accessible old design. Android phones, feature phones, but no Windows phones. That's despite that BLU ...

    It's time to talk about Frank Ocean. As much as we've been putting it off, the release of "Blonde" (or "Blond" if you take it from the album art) has posed several challenges to the music and streaming industry. For one, Ocean broke off ties with Universal Music Group's Def Jam label after supposedly fulfilling his ...

    OnePlus may have been right after all, as Obi Wan would say, “…from a certain point of view.” When OnePlus started playing this game we call “making smartphones” it billed its first device a “flagship killer”. Now, I’m not saying that the OnePlus One killed the flagship – far from it. But the OnePlus ...

    As tired as Apple can get this season for keeping its update pace quite high for the public betas of iOS 10 and macOS and the developer betas of the whole kit and kaboodle, it's important to keep in mind that the software engineers in Cupertino are juggling so many balls at once.

    Words from Samsung executives teasing the media about a "possible," "potential," "may or may not happen" Galaxy Note 7 in China with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage have fallen through. At least, for now. Samsung opened up pre-orders today for the Galaxy Note 7. Like everyone else's, it has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage ...

    There's another Snapdragon 820 device from HTC just beginning to make the rounds on GFXBench. We already think that the Nexus devices will get Android 7.1 before they launch, though. So, what's this thing with Android 6.0.1? Perhaps the Desire 10 Pro? It seems like it. It  has all the typical trimmings: 4GB of RAM, ...

    Maybe to better appreciate the software support efforts of a few unjustly criticized Android device manufacturers, false alarms like the one issued in Netherlands earlier this week are needed.

Then again, this is the ...

We get it, the iPhone 8, 7s, 7 or however Apple intends to call its first major ...

Branded differently, of course, as the Z line reached its “culmination” a few months back. Now, not only do we have official confirmation from one of the company’s European divisions the ...
