    Over the years, Twitter's been evolving from a blank 140-character slate to deliver users more and more features. It used to be that you had to manually shorten URLs, until Twitter automated the process. And you used to need third-party image hosts until Twitter started accepting uploads itself. With video, the ...

    Flagships, mid-tier, and entry-level phones. Each have their own demographic target. Each carefully balances pros versus cons, and power versus price. Flagships generally cost between US$400 and $600 for smartphones, and a couple hundred more for phablets. Mid-tier phones typically run about half that, though things ...

    Folks, this topic will either become subject to one of the most accurate reports and leaks of the year so far, or it will turn out to be the biggest smoke curtain/rumor fails of 2015. TL;DR: the next Samsung flagship will not pack Qualcomm's latest and greatest, the Snapdragon 810. There were a lot of Samsung Galaxy S6 ...

    Weeks ago, an interesting new "superphone" crossed our news desk, claiming to put to shame competitors with a spec sheet that can only be described as stunning. At the time, it seemed as though it were a bit of a pipe dream, but when we went hands-on with it at CES 2015 we started warming up to the idea of the phone ...

    Usually, when a mobile device sale is made at a retailer, the device being bought has been officially announced. That's fairly common sense, you'd think, but it seems that around two months ago something oddly different happened. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S line of tablets has only come to Verizon Wireless in its 10.5-inch ...

    The latest from HTC is due in just a few weeks, which has resulted in a barrage of leaks from a bevy of different internet corners recently. It's possible the Taiwanese OEM might be throwing us entirely off-base with decoys, or it's possible we've hit the nail on the head again and again. But what we do know is that the ...

    We've all complained over how Samsung has diluted the Galaxy brand with so many devices over the last couple of years. The recent shakeups and changes have pointed to the company doing significant changes in order to re-gain the same popularity its Galaxy brand had a few years ago. We've recently heard that Samsung is ...

    Huawei has done a very good job over the last couple of years in building mindshare outside of China. We've seen the company launch a bevy of powerful smartphones last year, like the gigantic Ascend Mate 7, and we've been hearing that there are some bold plans in store for MWC 2015. So far Huawei has done a good job at ...

    When it comes to analyzing the quality of a smartphone's camera, there are two main approaches. There's the guided style: "We had a gander at the new [Smartphone] from the fine folks at [Smartphone Manufacturer], and we took its camera out for a spin to see how it performed under a variety of lighting conditions. When ...

    At CES this year, ASUS came ready to show off some very interesting new hardware, including both that 4GB RAM ZenFone 2 and the ZenFone Zoom with a camera capable of optical zoom. And while that left it with a solid handset showing, we didn't get to see the next chapter for its wearable offerings. Last year at IFA, the ...

    For as good as your cellular provider might be right now, who wouldn't want their service to be a little better? Networks have several ways they can go about improving their coverage, from adopting new wireless standards like LTE, to building more towers in congested areas. But maybe one of the most substantial upgrades ...

    With all Microsoft had to show at last week's Windows 10 event – from HoloLens to Spartan, not to mention what the new OS will mean for the company's smartphones – there are plenty of good reasons to be excited for what Microsoft's doing next. But before we start focusing too much on the future, it's time for ...

    We spend so much time talking about upcoming phone hardware, design choices, software, and launch plans, that it's easy to take something very simple (yet still very important) for granted: a phone's name. With companies that release flagships from the same families year after year, we can easily get comfortable and ...

    We've all praised Microsoft for the death of Internet Explorer in part of the company's Windows 10 announcements. We haven't really seen Microsoft's Spartan browser compared to others, but the features shown off at the event were cool enough to have us excited. We all thought the browser would simply be named "Microsoft ...

    The Nexus 6 may offer a pretty all-around respectable hardware experience, but could it have been even better? It wasn't long after the phone launched that we found ourselves revisiting some earlier rumors, ones that looked into the possibility of getting a fingerprint scanner. Sure enough, the software support for such ...

    Last year, at MWC 2014, Sony introduced the Xperia Z2. After seeing the Xperia Z3 launch at IFA in late summer, our eyes were once again on the first quarter of the year in the hopes of Sony launching the latest member of this family. CES came and went with no Xperia Z4 in sight, leaving us to assume that we'd be ...

    Apple has never been famous discounts, and definitely not for giving things away on any of its stores. There was a time when the company was giving away singles, and it seems that even that went away silently. The good thing is that it seems that Apple has decided to take these free singles to a whole new level. Apple ...

    As our phones get more powerful, wireless networks faster, and storage options more plentiful, it's very easy for a developer to let his or her app start getting “fat.” Optimizations become a less important distraction, leaving more time to deliver new features. Of course, not everyone's lucky enough to have ...

    A couple of years ago, it would've been almost impossible to imagine Apple experimenting with anything outside its comfort zone. That said, the same company that was reluctant to launch a mini tablet, did with the iPad mini, and the same company that denied the need for a bigger iPhone, launched two of them with the ...

One other little nugget that Microsoft dropped on us was that new flagship hardware was coming.  There were few real details about from whom, or when. It ...

I believed in the weird. I thought the weird added a tremendous amount of value to the device, and I wanted to explore it and see ...
