    Between the release of more efficient SoCs, the deployment of wireless charging technology, the arrival of shaped batteries that better conform to our phones' curves, and the trend away from super-thin phones at all costs, smartphone battery life has generally been doing pretty well lately. But this industry is hardly ...

    Yesterday brought us our first chance to check out pictures of (what sure seem to be) actual OnePlus One hardware. Well, at least some of it was real hardware: in addition to pics of an exposed One motherboard, we also saw a shot of a little printout that appeared to show a render of the prototype handset. At the very ...

    The Nexus 5 was unveiled on October 31st of last year, and offered for sale through Google's Play Store the same day. In those several months I've run the stock version of Android, though about half way through I rooted it and run several apps that require those elevated privileges. That's pretty significant. It's the ...

    The big news dropped at Build two weeks ago. Cortana is coming to Windows Phone. This personal digital assistant (see what I did there) would bring a top-notch voice control system to Windows Phone to compete with other platforms (read: Siri and Google Now). Is it possible we see Cortana catching up to, or even ...

    Back on Monday, Sprint gave its users the heads-up that a Nexus 5 update was incoming, and based on the information the carrier made available, this sure looked like the arrival of Android 4.4.3. The weird thing was, Google had yet to announce the update itself, and even the factory image download page for Nexus devices ...

    "Once we’ve got the 3D pose of each photo, we compute the depth of each pixel in the reference photo using Multi-View Stereo algorithms. MVS works the way human stereo vision does: given the location of the same object in two different images, we can triangulate the 3D position of the object and compute the ...

    Per usual, all eyes are on the major Android manufacturers as the 2014 flagships come out. We've reviewed the One M8 twice. Despite my initial takeaway from the announcement, I ended up buying one as my personal device anyway. And Michael is in the process of reviewing the Galaxy S 5. Sony's flagship is just around the ...

    Last Friday we got a look at an image of what were supposed to be cases for Apple's new iPhone 6 designs, and they suggested that beyond simply getting larger, the handsets might take the liberty to reposition some of their hardware. Specifically, we saw signs that could be interpreted as Apple moving the phone's ...

    For the past couple weeks, leaks have been revealing Google's work to spruce up the design behind several of its Android apps. First we saw a new Gmail, then Calendar, and finally a home screen that sported new icon designs. Whether or not any of this is tied to those Project Hera rumors is anyone's guess, but evidence ...

    Rumors about LG's next flagship have been around for quite a while by this point, and we've been hearing claims made about the phone's hardware since last year. But recently our understanding of the smartphone has really started taking shape, and only this week have we been seeing pictures that could serve to reveal the ...

    In recent years, smartphone camera quality has been becoming more and more important for users, and there's always someone out there raising the bar, or introducing the next big feature everyone wants to copy. Lately, artistic defocusing – the bokeh effect – has been all the rage, and HTC absolutely ran with the ...

    We've been hearing about the Oppo Find 7 for quite some time. Oppo itself has teased the existence of the phone, only to later confirm and announce it last month. Revealed alongside the Find 7, however, was a slightly more tame version of the phone, dubbed the Find 7a. That's what we currently have on hand. Can Oppo ...

    The Duo Camera arrangement on the new HTC One M8 is something unlike anything we're used to from smartphone imaging, marrying the phone's primary camera with a secondary sensor that can be used to calculate distance info. On the One M8 as it shipped, HTC's software takes advantage of that depth data to pull off some ...
