    Update (July 7, 6:00pm): Job finally done. Thanks for being patient. There's an Apple patent that might have us all sharing files with handshakes in the not-too-distant future. Sprint's new CEO is finally fed up with John Legere and recently said so on Twitter. Android is running on BlackBerry. And there's a 10,000 ...

    Xiaomi may be famous for its smartphone dominance in China, but that has mostly been in the mid-range market. The company has done an amazing job in placing itself in the high-end market with the Mi 4, but even with the recent refresh of the Mi 4i, it's clear that the lineup is due for a refresh. We've been following ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from the release of the desktop variant of Windows 10 to the public. Reports already claim that Windows 10 RTM should reach Microsoft's partners this week, and as such speculation has already begun over how this market will behave. If you're wondering where partners expect to see more ...

    The whole experience was surreal. It was mind-boggling. As it was stupefying. And rage-inducing. This is not fit for human consumption.

    We've been able to unlock our smartphones through face detection for a significant amount of years now, so long as you're using an Android phone of course. You'd assume this would be the most logical way to unlock your phone, given the fact that you're staring at it during this particular process. The biggest problem ...

    Founded in 1985, Qualcomm has made the processors that enable our mobile devices since it started making CDMA base stations in 1990. Since then the company has focused its attention on SoCs - systems on a chip - that are at the core of today's smartphones and tablets. Qualcomm is even taking aim at the processors that ...

    It's funny how the same company that was famous for fighting uniformity with its 1984 ad campaign, is the exact same company that's now famous for doing the opposite. Apple was once famous for not conforming to a standard, and using this as a way to show itself as cool, but the last thing you'll find in Apple's product ...

    With summer in full swing, we already find ourselves looking forward to September, when events like IFA and Apple's anticipated new iPhone launch promise to deliver some of the hottest phones of the year. And while that's going to mean a lot of top-shelf hardware (with prices to match), we dare not forget just how large ...

    Over the past few months, we've gotten to know the Apple Watch. We've worn the smartwatch on our wrists, used it to interact with our iPhones, and become familiar with all it has to offer. So while the wearable itself may be quite known to us, there's a bigger picture question that's so far remained elusive, as we've ...

    I recently paid a visit to my childhood home in rural New York, and because I'm not a normal person, it stirred memories of telecom from days gone by. Between updating my parents' smartphones and walking around to determine which corners of town were still waiting for LTE, I saw quite a few older handsets strapped to ...

    A couple hours back, we took a break from the string of OnePlus 2 talk that had dominated our recent conversations about the manufacturer to look at some minor changes happening for the company's first-gen handset. But without missing a beat we're moving right back over to OnePlus 2 territory now, as the latest official ...

And while we're understandably excited to get the full story on that handset, the tale's not over quite yet for last year's OnePlus One. Even with the hardware ...

And while we're sure we'll have plenty of Note 5 leaks and rumors to keep us busy over the weeks to come, the story on last year's Galaxy Note 4 isn't quite ...

It enjoyed warm and glowing reviews from a majority of evaluators, but even that hasn't been enough to turn the company's profit losses trend around.

    For some, the HTC One M9 was enough. It didn't bring the radical new approach to smartphone making that Samsung took with the Galaxy S6 (at least, in comparison to its previous flagship, the Galaxy S5), though it performed respectably and handled as a flagship should. However, this approach hasn't quite translated into ...
