    The world’s third most popular smartphone vendor, though China-based, is getting big across Europe and North America too, seemingly taking a particular liking to German press events after unveiling the mid-range Nova and Nova Plus at IFA 2016 in Berlin.

    Global music streaming competition is tightening up (not that it’s very loose at the moment), with a public Spotify beta live on Japanese shores as of today, and a similarly limited launch in India for Google Play Music.

    Samsung’s smartphones will probably be scrutinized for many years to come on the heels of a Galaxy Note 7 overheating scandal that refuses to go away even as the Korean tech giant makes decent headway towards taking all faulty devices off the hands of at-risk consumers. What Sammy can’t be accused of is trying to ...

    It may feel like an unnatural alliance to some, but Google’s Android Wear smartwatch platform supports both fellow Android handhelds and iPhones. Basically, if you’re not a hardcore fan of either Big G or Apple, don’t particularly understand the appeal of “iWatches”, yet still own a new or old iPhone, plus a ...

    Roughly four weeks ago, Samsung dropped the bombshell. But (way too) many Galaxy Note 7 owners either didn’t care about the risks of hanging on to their potentially explosive phablets, or simply missed the news of the voluntary global recall. Once the Consumer Product Safety Commission was brought in to ensure the US ...

    We know, we know, it’s been long enough. Roughly a year since both the OnePlus X and Android 6.0 were released to the general public, similarly hard to come by off the bat. The affordable mid-range 5-inch phone and Lollipop’s sweet OS successor tried their best to go wide in the first half of 2016, but then OnePlus ...

    While BlackBerry has officially wrapped up its mobile hardware division, it's still going to sell phones — Android smartphones — with its name and software on it.

    As much as we take Tizen to be of Samsung's ownership, it's not. It's an open-source project and any manufacturer is free to thrive on Tizen. And while Samsung may wield Tizen as the ultimate way away from Android, it's not the only manufacturer that can pose such a threat to Google's mobile ecosystem. Huawei has had ...

In layman’s terms, it basically means BlackBerry phones as we know them are dead. No, the recently released DTEK50 and fast-approaching DTEK60 don’t technically count, setting up a new ...

Possibly even sooner, if the newly speculated D-Day proves to be the high-end 5.5-incher’s commercial release date as ...
