    Google's got a new update to Drive for Android out this week, delivering things like a more Lollipop-friendly UI and a neat drag-and-drop file management tool (above). That's well and good, but the more interesting stuff may be taking place behind the scenes, and a new teardown points to work on a couple pretty ...

    When a new flagship smartphone from a major manufacturer finally makes its official debut after months and months of waiting, we want that handset to be perfect – or at least, we'd like to believe it's perfect, if only to justify all that time we spent pining away.

    HTC just launched its One M9 with a 2840mAh battery. Samsung gave the Galaxy S6 a 2550mAh battery. And yet the iPhone 6 only has one that comes in at 1810mAh. Now sure, it's a smaller phone, and there's always the 6 Plus with its larger battery, but that doesn't change the iPhone 6's reputation as a phone where its ...

    So far when it comes to leaked pics of purported Sony Xperia Z4 components, we've seen a lot of display panels. There was that early set back in November, as well a few new pics surfacing about a month ago. While those were quite interesting, they left us without a comprehensive view of this upcoming hardware.

    HTC's MWC press event this past Sunday brought us the One M9 along with a few hardware surprises, but what we didn't get was anything like the rumored quad HD larger-screened One M9 Plus. Had all the reports been as wrong about that as they were about the M9's Nexus 9/Desire-looking makeover? Well, there's always the ...

    Unlike Apple's iPhone or Nokia's Lumia series, phones from Motorola have been a mixed bag when it comes to camera performance. Depending on whether the smartphone in question is a high-end flagship or a low-end entry-level handset, the quality of pictures taken can vary widely. The camera in question today is that which ...

Sure, Apple's got that event coming up on Monday, but that's likely to be the Apple Watch's shindig, with no major handset new expect. Maybe next on our radar will be LG, ...

    Earlier this week we took a look at the GSM Association's picks for the best mobile hardware of the year: the iPhone 6, LG G3, Surface Pro 3, and Moto 360 emerged as the big winners. But while the GSMA announces its winners every MWC, it's a little unsatisfying to be handing out awards to all this old hardware at an ...

    OnePlus formally launched its One back in April of last year, so it's perfectly understandable that we're already getting curious about when a follow-up might be ready. Rumors have already listed some hardware details that make the presumptive OnePlus 2 sound pretty damn appealing, talking about some top-shelf silicon ...

    Yesterday those just-can't-shake-'em larger-screened iPad rumors popped their head back up again, claiming that Apple both really was intending to get this so-called iPad Pro (or is it Plus?) out this spring, and that those plans have since been shelved, with a fall launch now looking more likely. Say what you will ...

And while that's good news for Google, Wallet, and arguably Android mobile payments in general, it hasn't been such a promising turn of events for everyone involved. As a result of this ...

    At this point, it's fair to say that much of the wind has left MWC's sails. From a Sunday packed with pre-MWC launches, we've been seeing a steady dwindling-off of new high-profile hardware as the week unfolds, and by now if a manufacturer had something good to launch at the expo, it's been launched. However, MWC isn't ...
