    One of the LeEco devices we've been watching the past few months has been the Le 2s Pro. Between the Le 2s and this phone, there's been dual-camera talk, speculation about 8GB of RAM and which advanced Snapdragon 820 processor these two will get.

    Samsung has delayed the launch of Galaxy Note 7 sales in many territories because of hot demand. The US and Korea haven't been affected as much as Europe and Southeast Asia have. But even the best laid plans can be diverted — and we weren't dealing with the best at this point, so this is actually good news. Several ...

    One great culinary trend you'll find in your nearest Koreatown is the country's deep-fried chicken. Like a good batch of chips (or fries), they're fried twice — once for actual cooking, then again at a higher temperature for crispiness. One Baidu forums user in China recently had a very unpleasant frying experience, ...

    2013 called, HTC, and, well, you can fill out the rest. But let’s not jump to conclusions, and go too hard on the financially and creatively struggling Taiwanese OEM.

    Worn by “the world’s greatest athletes” at the recently concluded Summer Games in Rio in a very shrewd publicity stunt that likely doubled as a mighty convenient pre-release beta trial, the Visa-powered NFC Ring finally seems (just about) ready for primetime and the contactless-paying masses. No need to continue ...

    Google wants a piece of the Amazon-controlled smart speaker action, the latter in turn plans to go after Apple and Spotify in the uber-challenging, jam-packed music streaming arena, while Samsung may also have something akin to the Echo in the pipeline.

    Large demand for a just-launched smartphone is by no means bad news as far as the manufacturing company is concerned, though component shortages and low production yields extending over a lengthy period of time can turn a prospective box-office hit into a very real flop. Samsung experienced such a shifty scenario back ...

    One of the main questions we get on Twitter lately is if it's really worth to upgrade from the Galaxy Note 5 to the brand new Galaxy Note 7. You'd think that their similarities are enough to stick where you are, but the reality is far from it. If you do a little history, you have to remember just how polarizing the ...

    Let's not be bashful. This camera rocks. We very much enjoyed the still photo performance on the Huawei P9, and the Honor 8 is nearly identical. Dual camera sensors mimic the way our eyes work. One sensor focuses on color, the other on light. When the output of both sensors is merged, we get photos unlike any other ...

Sure, there's the generic "Silver Bullets" stuff you can get from almost anywhere, but then there's the OnePlus Icons. They're tagged at $50, have ...

Sure, the company had some aesthetics going on and a large screen for the people who prefer them. The Snapdragon 617 inside of it was somewhat weak, though. Well, good news and bad news — GFXBench has ...
