    When the original Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL variant debuted on T-Mobile and MetroPCS last fall, the affordable 5.5-inch Android understandably went unnoticed by most smartphone consumers, as it simply faced too much direct opposition, including from higher-profile brands, to stand out from the pack.

    Back in October, when Android 6.0 was barely making its way over-the-air to “pure Google” Nexus devices, Sony vowed to update a whopping 14 Xperia phones and tablets to sweet Marshmallow… eventually. Between then and now however, only a small fraction of Z3 and Z3 Compact owners worldwide got a sample of Doze ...

    Aside from the ever-expanding Honor family of ridiculously cheap phones, and high-profile product rosters like G, P or Mate, Huawei tends to overcrowd the market a little with lesser known, low-key Android handhelds also, most of which are targeted at specific countries or regions. It remains to be seen exactly where ...

Maybe the head honcho of the world’s most profitable company would then learn how to take a joke or gracefully parry an online insult. Granted, the stars invited to the ...

    With just a little over a week until the actual start of the 2016 Mobile World Congress, and no official word on an HTC appearance at the Barcelona trade show, we’re fairly certain the financially struggling company’s next-gen flagship is looking at a launch down the line.

    Irony in its purest form: a phone that’s over two years old and was never considered a powerhouse currently runs a newer version of Android than a 2015 flagship, at least outside Korea and Poland. Even more ironic, not to mention damaging for the reputation of semi-recent high-enders, is Marshmallow software doesn’t ...

    Without a doubt, the champion of Android 6.0 software promotions thus far is Motorola, despite its relations with Google understandably cooling after Lenovo’s acquisition.

    Consider this the answer to Google's acquisition of Songza. This one's a little more tricky, though, if only in name. Canadian-made iOS music app Groove is now under Microsoft's belt.
