    Huawei introduced its round-screened (and aptly named) Huawei Watch back at MWC this past winter, and with a clean design and some attractive material choices, the Android-Wear-powered smartwatch very much piqued our interest. Really, the biggest thing that's been standing between this wearable and it finding some real ...

    We've kept a close eye on the Samsung Galaxy A8 leaks over the last couple of weeks. Samsung is clearly up to something good with this new Galaxy A variant, particularly in the design department. If all goes well, this should be the thinnest Samsung Galaxy ever, though don't think it won't come at a cost. One of the ...

    When it comes to LG's plans for a new G4-series model, our attention's been glued to rumors about the LG G4 Pro. We've heard talk about things like a metal frame, speedy Snapdragon 820 SoC, massive 4GB of RAM, a big 5.8-inch quad HD display, and a very high-res 27MP camera. That could make for one beast of a smartphone, ...

    Apple has used the "s" after an iPhone's product name as a representation of additional speed, ever since the old iPhone 3GS. As such we've seen the company retain the same design as the existing model, but with added performance benefits. We're expecting this to be the exact same case with the iPhone 6s, and today we ...

    If you've been following along for the past few weeks, you know I've been a little busy – too busy to focus on the latest Android Wear developments, in fact. But that doesn't mean I've been oblivious to the goings-on in Google's wearable world: during my review period with Pebble Time I took all kinds of mental ...

    How do you deal with the grim realities of smartphone battery life? Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and slide the screen brightness down as low as it can go, all the while hoping for the best? Make sure you've always got a spare charging cable in your bag? Lug around an external battery pack to top things up throughout ...

    One of the most common trends ever since smartphone screens started getting larger, was for video consumption to grow. YouTube has made gigantic leaps in the quality it can support from video producers like us to consumers on a desktop, but we've also seen the company gradually bring this support to mobile.

    For a tablet that's solidly over a year old at this point, Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 keeps right on ticking. And why shouldn't it, with the sort of hardware that would look pretty good in a full-fledged laptop, let alone an eminently portable tablet. We found the Surface Pro 3 back in the news earlier this week as ...

    Believe it or not, the last time Apple refreshed its iPod lineup was back in year 2012. It makes sense for Apple to loosen its on the iPod with the success of the iPhone, given the company always knew that it would be at the cost of killing its own music player. That last thing we'd expect is for Cupertino to continue ...

    Being made out completely of aluminum and glass, in addition to being their respective manufacturers' flagships for this year, represent the perfect reasons for us to compare these two devices. But there’s a lot more to comparing these smartphones than what we just mentioned above, and that’s exactly what we’re ...

    Buying a new smartphone can be its own reward: you get to start fresh with a new, unmarred handset, still months away from seeing its storage bogged down with dozens of apps you ran once and never touched again, or those hours of video footage you accidentally recorded while sleeping (and later forgot about). But if you ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the ...

    Going back about a month now, we've been hearing rumors about Samsung's plans for a new Galaxy handset, one that might straddle the line between the Galaxy S family and Note devices. The general idea seemed to be that we were looking at a larger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge, but rather than this phablet-sized model ...

    When designing smartphones, an OEM needs to take a lot of factors into consideration. Design, aesthetics, functionality, and use-cases all need to be taken into account. So the question came up recently – would it be possible to design a smartphone with no ports? It’s an intriguing proposition, on many levels. ...

With fast updates to the latest (and very near-stock) versions of Android, and some impressive and high-quality specs, it remains a fan favorite. So if you ...

    If you want to listen to Apple Music on iOS right now, you have to have iOS 8.4. There is no other option – unless you want to hop onto your computer and use iTunes 12.2 instead. So naturally, the early adopters among you who are running the developers-only beta of iOS 9 on your device were aggravated to learn they'd ...

    Touch. Tap. Push. Prod. Swab. Stab. The button takes a lot of nonsense from its users. And also Benny Benassi and The Biz, but if I hear "push me and then just touch me" one more time, I might need a barbiturate. Anyways, people usually don't give these things much credit for doing what they do and what engineers have ...

At first we saw the leaked images of an iPhone 5c successor, but those rumors were quickly shot by trusted sources as the iPhone 5s might still be slated for another year, given its popularity. For a moment there we ...

    Samsung was in desperate need of a positive break after the sales disappointments it suffered with last year's Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S6 was codenamed "Project Zero" precisely because the company needed to re-invent the device from the ground up, and so it did. If you're wondering how well is the Korean giant doing after ...
