    It's been exposed as of late that benchmarks are anything but reliable. Many Android OEMs have included software to ramp up CPU clock speed when benchmarks are detected, and other dirty tactics have been used as well. The GameBench app, recently launched to the Play Store, looks to be "uncheatable" -- that is, OEMs ...

    Back in March, OnePlus gave us hope that the company's One might be the next Moto X of sorts, giving users a fair degree of customization through some alternate backplates featuring (for phones, at least) pretty exotic materials. Sure, the sandstone finish on currently available One handsets isn't real sandstone, but a ...

    Microsoft has done a decent job in growing Windows Phone into the third largest smartphone operating system. Yes, if we compared it in numbers against Android and iOS, there is still a lot of growing to do, but with all the improvements we se on Windows Phone 8.1, that should only be a matter of time. If you're curious ...

    It's hard not to commend Google for the job the company has been doing in enhancing the services we consume through Android and even iOS at times. We've seen frequent updates to services like Google Now and YouTube over the last couple of weeks, and today Gmail takes a turn at some enhancements. The company is pushing ...

    As much as we've praised Google for Android L's design and fluidity, there are certain parts of the developer build that aren't perfect, and we're not talking about bugs. Android L continues to be "open source," but Google is adding tighter controls to the visual appeal of the user interface. One of these aspects is the ...

    The HTC One Remix has leaked a number of times as of yet, as Verizon's carrier-specific One mini 2. Today comes yet another leak, though this one's a bit unconventional -- it's made possible by Big Red itself, which happened to post an HTC One Remix promo video prematurely. While there isn't quite a boatload of ...

    As manufacturing of the iPhone 6 continues, leaked parts at different stages of manufacturing will be common leaks going forward. Yesterday we saw the three color options we should expect after finding the device's SIM trays in leaked photos. Today we get to see the metallic rear shell of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in other ...

    Apple hasn't been famous for being first at anything it has ever done. We know it didn't invent the computer, nor the smartphone, nor the MP3 player, and especially not the haptic feedback that we've been enjoying on smartphones since the early days of Windows Mobile. Still, Apple is famous for perfecting existing ...

    As you might've guessed, we're big on saving pocket space here at Pocketnow ... and we sometimes miss the days when phone holsters were a "thing." I talked about this in a short editorial almost exactly one year ago, where I made a case for the return of the phone pouch: The added utility of freeing up a pocket is ...

    Slowly but surely, LG has been releasing details about the latest additions to its Android tablet lineup. Back in May it first announced the G Pad 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1, following the introduction of the G Pad 8.3 last summer. While it only had some very basic descriptions of the hardware to offer at first, it followed ...

    Back in the early 2000s, it was customary to cram every last possible hardware button on a phone. These days, it's all about being as streamlined and as beautiful as possible. Goodbye, hardware keys! While most everything can be replicated by on-screen controls, eliminating all the hardware buttons doesn't exactly help ...

    If there's one thing we're about, it's devices. And from Sony's new "Selfie Phone" to the new Android Wear-ables to the rumors of new Droids, a new Lumia 1525, a back-from-the-dead Surface Mini and the lingering possibility of the Nexus 8, we've got no shortage of hardware talk on this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: ...

    The trajectory of Motorola's work on wearables is pretty transparent for the immediate future: the Moto 360 is very much happening, and right now it's just a matter of waiting for sales to begin. But while the company has been quite forthcoming with its smartwatch plans, that hasn't been the case with its phones. ...

    We were introduced to Project Volta at Google I/O this year. There it was described as a set of new tools and APIs which developers could use to help their apps "run efficiently and conserve power". To save power, we must first understand what's using that power. To that end, Battery Historian was developed. It's a new ...
