    "OK Google" is the keyword that wakes up specific devices running Android from stand-by, hands-free, so you can be more productive. Well, "Hey Cortana" is the hot word that will activate Cortana on Windows Phone, once Nokia's Denim update, coming after the Cyan update. Users will no longer need to activate Cortana; with the new hot word detection, Cortana will be activated hands-free, getting ready to answer your questions. Additionally, Cortana will also become location aware, as it will get geofencing capabilities for location-aware reminders. However, Cortana is not the only enhancement ...

    ...maybe you don't want to compare the Note 4 with the Galaxy S5. Since you're looking at a Galaxy Note-class device, you're likely interested in a comparison with the previous generation phablet, the Note 3. Don't worry, we've got you covered. It was about this time last year, maybe a day or two shy, that Samsung introduced, at the same venue, in the same city, at the same show, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. As our special After the Buzz episode testifies, the Note 3 has aged well. So what's there to the Note 4, aside from being the hot novelty, that would make you buy it over the Note 3? ...

    With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already official -- as Samsung's historical second flagship of any given year in the recent past -- many of you might be wondering whether to go for the new and hot device, or stick with the flagship. Of course, the answer can be very easy if you care about screen size: if you prefer bigger, the Note 4 should be your option; if you prefer smaller, the S 5 should be just what you need. What if you don't care about the display size as much as you do about the internals packed behind the glass? Both of these devices are fast, and future proof enough to last you ...

    We knew that ASUS was preparing an Android Wear-powered smartwatch, called the ZenWatch, as the company itself was hard at work teasing the gadget. IFA 2014 might officially start only on the 5th of September, but ASUS has kicked off the show with a special event where the company made the ZenWatch official. The front is taken up by a 1.63-inch AMOLED screen with 320 x 320 resolution, pretty much like on the Samsung Gear Live, among the first wearables to ship with Android Wear. The similarities with Samsung's offering don't stop at the screen and resolution, but also extend to the ...

    The Sony event at the Berlin IFA 2014 is just hours away, and the leaks keep on coming, trying to anticipate even more of what we'll probably see. Yesterday we've seen an alleged picture of the Sony Xperia Z3, with a spec-sheet glued to its back; that piece of paper, among specs, also mentioned a copper flavor, alongside black and white, and it's that exact new variant seems to have leaked today, in the images above and below. There's little to see here, aside from the new copper Sony Xperia Z3, but the image below also seems to feature a fourth color; call it yellow, green, or lime, it ...

    On August 27, Samsung announced the Gear S, a smartwatch we're expecting to meet in person at the upcoming IFA 2014, a smartwatch that supports 3G on your wrist, with the help of a SIM card slot. The two-inch curved Super AMOLED display give it a unique touch, while the smartwatch itself comes with a flexible band out of the box. However, today Samsung announced an extension of its partnership with Swarovski, for the "Swarovski for Samsung" collection, which now contains the newly announced Gear S. It's about a Gear S strap, for those of you who love your bling-blings visible; you can now ...

    Sony should unveil its next flagship, believed to be the Sony Xperia Z3, at the upcoming IFA 2014 in Berlin. All the rumors and reports seem to agree on this, and the company itself has started teasing, however, without a specific mention of the phone itself. The picture above is allegedly one snapped off of a real-life unit, which seems to have a sheet glued to its back with the Xperia Z3 specs. While the accuracy and veracity of the picture itself can't be verified, the specs we're seeing seem credible enough. We're looking at a 5.2-inch 1080p TRILUMINOS display, quad-core Snapdragon ...

    We've heard a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in the past, ranging from rumors and leaks to spot-on reports that predicted the phone would be launched today. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha announced today is, according to the official press release, "the evolution of Galaxy Design", and the phone maker is proud to unveil its new design approach. "Sophisticated design in a carefully constructed compact body" is the tagline for the device that has a metallic frame (sorry, no unibody design for those who expected it based on previous rumors). “The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on ...

    The original phone (tablet) that we thought would be a follow-up to last year's Galaxy Mega line-up turned out to be the Samsung Galaxy W, with its seven-inch display, leaving the two Mega handsets (5.8-inch and 6.3-inch models) without successors so far this year. However, the South Korean phone-maker has been silently working on the projects, and the device you see pictured above and below might be the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. The pictures popped up on Chinese certification website TENAA, and they apparently depict the SM-G7508Q model number. We're looking at a six-inch device with 720p ...

    A set of leaked images, above, and below, has surfaced on the internet, in the shape of what appears to be official press renders of an upcoming HTC device. If the images are legit, then we're looking at the HTC Butterfly 2, a follow-up to the J Butterfly, a phone destined for Asian/Pacific markets. Aside from specs rumored -- including a five-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD), 13MP main shooter with Duo Camera, and a five-megapixel webcam -- the Butterfly 2 will apparently also sport a water and dust proof build, with ...

    Just as we suspected, the iPhone 6 rumors continue to surface. After previously seeing purported pictures of the retail box -- which raised a few questions though, with a safe to assume conclusion that we were looking at a Chinese knockoff, the GooPhone I6 -- we are now seeing, above and below, what is claimed to be a picture of the iPhone 6 backplate. In the image above we can take a close look at the camera, the flash, as well as the microphone on the back, while the picture below seems to show off the back of the device in its entirety. We can't verify the veracity of these iPhone 6 ...

    Last year's HTC One line-up consisted of the One (M7), One Mini, and the One Max. We're pretty certain that we're looking at the same trio for 2014 as well, and, with the One (M8) and the One Mini 2 already out, rumors are starting to build up around the One Max successor. Some refer to it as the M8 Prime, but we prefer to go with the HTC One Max 2 tentative denomination. According to the report, we should be expecting a phone that looks "exactly" like the One M8, which is really no surprise. Said device will allegedly no longer feature a fingerprint scanner, like the One Max did on the ...

    We don't expect iPhone 6-related rumors, leaks, and reports to slow down; on the contrary, we're anticipating that more and more will surface until Apple will finally unveil the 2014 smartphone line-up, which everyone takes for granted will contain two iPhone 6 devices with larger screens, at 4.7 and 5.5-inches. We've recently seen some Apple logos being leaked, indicating that they most probably will not glow, and now we're looking at what is claimed to be the iPhone 6 retail box. While the veracity of the pictures (above and below) can't be verified, we're left with what we're seeing. ...

    It was just about this time last year that we were asking some valid questions about the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom: Is it a phone? Is it a camera? Who would buy it? Why?!? One year later, its successor has reached the market with the same functionality and almost the same form factor. Now we're asking the same questions in our Samsung Galaxy K zoom review below, though we're not quite sure we'll be able to answer this time around, either. If you don't know what the S4 zoom was, and what the K zoom is, just take a look at the images below. You see, you have to look at both of them, because if ...
