    Huawei didn't come to IFA this year just to get sales rolling on the Huawei Watch – even though we are grateful to finally get the details on that, considering we've been waiting since winter for sales to start. Beyond wearables, Huawei also has a new premium smartphone to introduce, and today announces the Mate S, ...

    Last week we were all ready to welcome the Huawei Watch to the world of retail availability, as Amazon appeared to open pre-orders for the smartwatch we've been waiting for since MWC.

    In addition to the modern connotations ranging from "intelligent" to "geeky," the word smart used to be synonymous with "classy," "elegant," and "timeless" – witness the enduring term "smart casual" for sharp-looking business attire. But today, the term "smart watch" conjures images of early adopters at best and ...

    Since mainstream tablet popularity in general has taken a big hit as a direct consequence of the rise of phablets, it should come as no surprise the best current option for gamers is still the aging 8-inch Nvidia Shield.

    Not exactly a force to be reckoned with in the global smartphone décor, especially as far as US penetration is concerned, Acer wants to at least strengthen its low-cost European market position.

    Typically, when a no-name company decides to tackle the intensely challenging and competitive smartphone market, it does so with low to mid-end models priced “aggressively.” But German-based multinational corporation Gigaset, which was once known as Siemens, is going about its mainstream Android debut in a very ...

    While the Oppo R7 Plus, recently unveiled for the Western hemisphere, left a “huge” first impression on one of our strictest reviewers, it’s no use trying to pretend like the 6-inch 1,080p handheld is a flagship. The middling (by high-end standards) Snapdragon 615 SoC renders the impressive 3GB RAM null and void, ...

    Coming up to IFA this year we heard that smartwatches were going to be huge, and from the launches we've already seen, that very much appears to be the case. Beyond those that have already gone official, we've got models like the new Moto 360 to look forward to in the very near future (even if that means missing IFA ...

    The day that they said would never come is finally here - well, sort of: Android Wear now works on iPhones! I know, I never thought I'd see the day, but here we are. Naysayers and critics will be quick to point out that only one wearable is officially supported, the LG Watch Urbane (for now). Not long after the ...

The company has managed to launch some of the most iconic products of the last few years, and we continue to see that. So far our first impression of the new Moto X lineup is rather ...

    Square’s approach to helping buddies send money to each other is kind of smart, so much so that it has driven some envy in the industry. PayPay was really one of the pioneers of the whole concept, but over the years the service has turned into more of a bank than anything else. It only makes sense for the company to ...

    Leaks of the iPhone 6s Plus haven’t been easy to come by, just like we saw with last year’s iPhone 6 Plus. It seems that the larger the phone is, the harder it is for leakers to stash units out of the factory. We’ve been flooded with leaks of its smaller sibling, but it’s not until today that we’re able to ...

    What is going on with Samsung's Tizen plans? At least, while Tizen seems to pretty clearly have a future with the company's wearables, popping up most recently on the new Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic, progress has been much slower when it comes to Tizen and smartphones. While we ultimately got the Z1 early this year, we ...

    This year for flagships like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5, Samsung broke from tradition. It had long been that the company would use its own Exynos chips for some regional variants of these handsets, while relying on Qualcomm and its Snapdragon chips for the rest. Instead, 2015 has seen Samsung double-down on the ...
