    Today, my Microsoft Band kicked the bucket.  After 10 months of heart rate monitoring, GPS location tracking, footstep tracking, sleep monitoring and smartphone notification displaying, it's no longer functional.

    It wouldn't be a OnePlus launch without a few bumps, and the OnePlus 2 is no exception. From irritation with its invitation-based sales model to (unfounded) concerns about its choice of processor, the "2016 flagship killer" has had to overcome a few challenges on the road to wide-scale release. Probably the biggest ...

    As one Mr. Ferris Bueller put it, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” That's just as true for smartphones as so many other things in life, and with the rapid-fire pace at which new phones seem to always be arriving, sometimes it feels like a new phone is ...

    Most phones these days have at least one camera - or more. The one that faces you is referred to as the "selfie-camera", and the other is usually called the "main camera". The one on the back is usually pretty high-end: several megapixels, image stabilization, LED flash, and oodles of more features. The one of the front ...

The recently rendered Cityman, aka Lumia 950 XL or 940 XL, has a lot going for it, based on fairly plausible gossip. It’s ...

    It can’t be easy for smartphone manufacturers to devise enough differentiators for two flagship models each year, let alone three.

    They say there’s no smoke without fire and, while we can’t really authenticate any of the profuse Nexus-centric rumors and leaks of late, it seems certain two stock Android-running Google phones will soon break cover. How soon? Within a few weeks as far as the smaller, lower-end LG-made 5-incher is concerned, ...

Then again, the Huawei Honor 7 isn’t exactly news, as it was formally unveiled in late June, and made available on Chinese shores shortly thereafter. At last, the ...
