    Warranties fall into that category of “things you don’t think about until you need it”. At the end of the day, it’s nice that if your phone stops working in a short period of time, you can contact the company who made the phone and get some kind of satisfaction – most of the time.

    Talking about the DROIDs, it seems, has set us up for another news piece about them, their predecessors and their progenitors. Also, VentureBeat's Evan Blass talked about them, so of course we have to tail the chase now. And of course, it's by Twitter. Even more, it's by retweet of a similarly formed tweet ruminating ...

    1984. Just the mention of those four digits together brings to mind the advertising hall of fame that was the commercial for the Apple Macintosh.

    The Death Star can only make so much progress on one front, like with progressing to a 2G-less network or flaunting exclusive devices. But software updates for the phones on its network? Not really in its roundhouse, as we found out with HTC today. But take the Samsung Galaxy S6 as all of AT&T's major competitors ...

    With Qualcomm's Snapdragon 200-series catering to the entry-level market and the Snapdragon 600-series moving up to bring the heat in the mid-range, you might think the Snapdragon 430 a chipset without a purpose.

    Sometimes it feels like choosing a mobile carrier is practically rolling the dice when it comes to your smartphone's update future.

Any self-respecting Android power user would yell out a resolute “hell, yeah” to at least the latter question, but the truth is you can probably hold on to the LG G3 a while longer without worrying of ...
