    One year ago, to date, OnePlus announced its first smartphone on April 23, a "flagship killer" One from the "never settle" company. As such, the company is today celebrating its first anniversary, with a small recap of where it all began, and where things are today (of course, with something notable in between). In order to celebrate its first birthday, OnePlus is discounting the One smartphone by $1 (one dollar, or the equivalent in your currency). Of course, you need to look at the gesture, not at the amount (regardless of how affordable the phone is). Additionally, as OnePlus turns one, ...

    ASUS introduced the ZenFone 2 on January 5, at the very beginning of the Las Vegas CES. Of course we went hands-on and said it might be a good buy. Thing is that there are two ZenFone 2 models: one that packs 2GB of RAM, and one that has double the amount, which should make its appearance in Europe soon. While initially ASUS has predicted sales of about 25 million units from the ZenFone 2 phones, the company has now revised its forecast, according to a report based on information from "sources from the upstream supply chain." The new, forecasted, ASUS ZenFone 2 sales are now at 30 million, ...

    The OPPO R5 from last year was a neat little phone (also one of the thinnest on the market), but the sequel, the OPPO R7 is expected to be even thinner. That's what all the leaks suggest, as well as a bezel-less aspect (to clarify: a leak sheds light on this, as there are bezels, but OPPO is doing a neat hocus pocus trick to conceal them). May 20 is the date on which the OPPO R7 event could take place, according to a report that claims information from China. While we expect the OPPO R7 to pack a 4.7-inch Full HD screen, an octa-core MediaTek 64-bit MT6795 chipset, and a 20.7MP camera, ...

    LG's upcoming G4, and its respective event, are all we are used to talking about recently when it comes to the South Korean phone manufacturer, but, the company also has a rather beautiful smartwatch up its sleeve, one we took a close look at while in Barcelona for the 2015 MWC. The LG Watch Urbane rollout begins this week, according to the official wording from the manufacturer. It will start in South Korea, followed by key markets in North America, Europe and Asia in the weeks to come. Those who have access to a Google Store (namely customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong ...

    Samsung is expected to break all sales records with this year's flagship devices, the Galaxy S6, and the Galaxy S6 Edge. The company's been historically outperforming itself year after year, and, this year too, Samsung expects record Galaxy S6 sales. Aside from the fact that the two S6 phones are the best Samsung has ever built (and arguably, the best smartphones of the year so far), the company is also doing its best to push them on the market with its campaigns and decisions. Despite all that, Galaxy S6 sales underperform in South Korea, according to the Yonhap News Agency, which ...

    Not much has changed over time when it comes to Sony's flagships, and their outer aspects. The Xperia Z3 looks a lot like the Xperia Z2 which looks a lot like the Xperia Z1, and the latest addition, the Japan-only Xperia Z4 is not much different either. If you were wondering how the two stack up, what the similarities and differences are (in terms of looks, cause we all know about the internals: better processor, better front-facer), check out these Sony Xperia Z4 vs Xperia Z3 pictures, coming from Japan. You can check out the details yourselves in the images below (and more at the source ...

    Microsoft's Word, Excel and PowerPoint applications are already available for tablet users, but sadly, there were some owners that couldn't take advantage of the tools made by the Redmond-based company. First, those who had tablets running the latest versions of Android Lollipop (5.0 and above) couldn't use the apps, as they were incompatible; then, those rocking devices powered by Intel x86-based chips were in a similar situation, as these devices were not supported (only ARM-based systems). According to a Microsoft announcement on the Office Preview for Android Tablets Yammer network, ...

    Samsung Pay debuted on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and it's the company's take on mobile payments, just like Apple Pay and Google Wallet. However, Samsung took it to the next level (thanks mostly to the acquisition of LoopPay earlier this year), making its own service compatible also with the MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) standard, meaning that you can use your device to pay at terminals which otherwise required you to swipe your magnetic credit or debit card. Samsung Pay will debut in the US and South Korea sometime this summer (partners include MasterCard, VISA, American ...

    Update: Meanwhile the images below have popped up on Mobile-Dad purportedly showing off the device which is expected to be even thinner than the R5's 4.8mm profile (and without the protruding camera), while maintaining a metal build. Image below. Remember the OPPO R7? It will, at one point (whenever it gets released), become the R5's follow-up, and one of its main features is the fact that is has a (nearly) bezel-less (on the sides) outer aspect. We looked at the OPPO R7 in some leaked images at the end of last month, but now we're being treated to a video showing off the phone. As it ...

    If curved smartphones are your thing, and the Galaxy S6 Edge is something you don't like (or can't afford), the LG G Flex 2 is something you should definitely consider. We looked at it closely, not once, but twice (international version and US Sprint variant) but the phone is making its way to AT&T soon. Friday, April 24, is when you will be able to grab the AT&T LG G Flex 2 in select AT&T retail stores and online. Platinum Silver is the color which will be available (unlike both of our review units), and there are a lot of pricing options to choose from: to quote from the ...

    LG is doing its best to tease the April 28 event where the G4 will be unveiled, and the manufacturer didn't mind telling us all about the screen and camera sensor inside the upcoming flagship. The leaks showed us the exterior and LG follows up on the display-centric teaser we've recently seen with an LG G4 camera teaser video. Photographer Colby Brown talks about his "new camera" which is the LG G4, as you will find out at the end of the embedded video below, a camera that is said to be great. How great will all depend on the results we're going to see once we get the G4 in our review ...

    Update: we've asked the question at the end of the post, and it looks like it's been answered. Apparently, the Xperia Z4 is only for Japan, but the rest of the world will get a different flagship by the end of May, according to this report. Finally all the rumors can come to an end as Sony announces the Xperia Z4, one of the most rumored (and leaked) smartphones of the year. It will replace (or at least it will try) the predecessor, the Xperia Z3, which was already an incremental upgrade to the Xperia Z2. If you were expecting a design overhaul, you'll probably be disappointed, as Sony has ...

    There's no doubt about it that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is among the best (if not the best, up to you) Android smartphone of the year so far. If you want to know why we think that, go ahead and check out our review, if you haven't already. Its almost twin sibling, sporting a curved display, the Galaxy S6 Edge, shouldn't be anything less (on the contrary, being cooler with its unique display), but we'll have to wait for our full review to decide (coming shortly). Meanwhile, Samsung USA has posted to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge promo unboxing videos to its YouTube channel. No, if you're expecting ...

    The pre-orders for the Apple Watch started on April 10, and, judging by the shipping estimates and the short time needed for certain models to sell out, one might think the process is another Apple success. If you're skeptical, you can always wave it off with stock and manufacturing shortages on Apple's end; we can't know for sure until the Cupertino-based company publishes some numbers. In any case, while you wait for your Apple Watch to get on your wrist, you might check out this Apple Watch dock from Mophie. Mophie needs no introduction: we recently looked at their juice pack for the ...

    The BlackBerry Leap was announced on March 3, at the 2015 MWC, as a budget-oriented touchscreen smartphone, aimed at "young power professionals", as the company itself likes to call its target audience. We've managed to get a closer look at the device during our stay in Barcelona, and now BlackBerry is expanding the phone's availability. The BlackBerry Leap is available starting today in the United Kingdom, and, if you're interested, you can grab one from ShopBlackBerry.com or select carrier partners. Other markets, such as Germany, France, United States, Canada, United Arab Emirates, ...

    The DuoCamera and fingerprint scanner enabled HTC One M9+, announced by HTC on April 8, is now official in India. While it is highly unlikely that we'll see this phone in the United States and Europe (where HTC is heavily relying on the HTC One M9), many consider the One M9+ to be the phone the One M9 should have been. We're looking at the same One M9+ that's been announced last week: a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, an MT6795T octa-core chip with a maximum clock speed of 2.2 GHz (MediaTek Helio X10 core processor), 3GB RAM, 20-megapixel main camera with the DuoCamera feature, ...

    The Android flavor of the WhatsApp popular instant messaging client has been recently updated. While the latest version is not yet on the Google Play Store, we're positive it will start reaching devices soon. Until then, if you want to check it out, go to the source link and download the APK directly from WhatsApp (make sure your security settings allow installs from unknown sources). What's new? While a changelog is missing, we're seeing the obvious (and welcome) change: the WhatsApp update brings new design, which tries to follow Google's Material Design guidelines. Earlier, WhatsApp ...

    Now that we've heard that all those Sony Xperia Z4 rumors might actually refer to a certain "Z3 Neo", we're not sure what to believe anymore. If you're not yet confused, let us help you with that, with the latest set of chatter that talks about a phone coming after the phone that should be coming soon. Yeah... Sony Xperia Z5 rumors are popping up, while we haven't even seen the Xperia Z4 yet (err, the Z3 Neo). Of course, there are several reasons to be extremely skeptical about these bits. Aside from being way too early, the information also comes from a source which has little to no track ...

    Almost two years ago, we started off our Xtorm Power Bank 11,000 quick review by saying that “sadly, battery life is one of the main concerns when it comes to buying a new gadget. Manufacturers are following, to the letter, a trend which makes our phones and tablets thinner and thinner while sacrificing battery life”. Fast forward to today, and that very same sentence still holds true, more than ever. Devices got even thinner, and battery life, while it didn’t get (much) worse, it didn’t get better either. If you’re a heavy user, chances are you won’t make it through the day on ...

    We won't even bother reminding you all the information we know about the unannounced Sony Xperia Z4 -- thanks to leaks, rumors, and all -- but we'll bring yesterday's leaked render to your attention in case you missed it. We know so much about this phone that 1. we feel it's been out for some time or 2. it's already suspicious, just in case Sony's playing with us all. The render you see above looks to be legit (or a pretty good fake). Not only it matches the render we've seen leaked yesterday, but it's higher quality. We do have one objection though, which could make us cry "fake": the ...

    Samsung really managed to pleasantly surprise everyone with the S6 and S6 Edge (and you can tell we're amped if you check out our review, if you haven't already). The phone is everything a real flagship is supposed to be, this time, with better looks and materials; no wonder Samsung is forecasting/expecting to break shipment records (not that in the past it had problems, with every iteration outselling the previous one). On that exact note, you should expect a Galaxy S6 Edge shortage, according to Reuters, as Samsung will most probably have issues with meeting production demands for the ...

    It's been a while since we've seen an Android tablet from Dell (the Venue 8 7000 from last October, to be specific), but the manufacturer has just announced its bigger sibling, the Dell Venue 10 7000, which basically takes a lot of its internals from the smaller sibling. However, with the Dell Venue 10 7000, the company went bigger, as the slate is equipped with a 10.5-inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels. That bump on the back/side (depending on how you hold it) houses the battery (while unrated officially, it should be good for 7 hours, according to Dell), as well as ...

    April 28 is when LG is going to unveil the 2015 flagship, the G4, and the company is not shy about letting everyone know when it will happen, and what to expect. We're referring to the leather-back phone on the invite, which also unveils some camera bits. Apparently, the LG G4 camera will be better, as the company has just announced its brand new camera module, the one that will be featured on the G4. We're looking at an aperture of f/1.8, and LG Innotek claims it is the "widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone". 80 percent more light (compared to the LG G3) is what LG claims ...

    Those of you who are waiting for the Apple Watch pre-orders to start on April 10 will probably appreciate this treat. While we are all (media, users, fans, and even haters) waiting to see what Apple's take on the smartwatch can do, we can have an early look at the way the Cupertino-based company is going to present its latest (first) wearable product. The first review units are already out in the wild, according to reports, and the box the Apple Watch comes in apparently doubles as a charging stand. We can also take an early look at how Apple will package the watch bands that can be ...

    We know a lot about the Huawei Ascend P8, despite the fact that it's not yet been made official. April 15 is when we expect to hear official wording about the device, but we've already heard rumors of its possible ceramic and glass build, as well as a tentative aluminum frame for the device. What we didn't know where its exact internals, but those are no longer a secret thanks to this Huawei Ascend P8 leak. A 5.2-inch screen is expected to be at the front of the Ascend P8 (Ascend P7 showed in the image above), with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. At the core of the smartphone ...
