    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 ...

    We all remember last year's (thankfully behind us) "selfie" trends (with their respective "groufie", etc. derivates), and, remembering that, we can't help but remember Sony's Xperia C3, the selfie-centric phone with the five-megapixel front-facer with LED flash. It looks like the Japanese manufacturer hasn't given up on the concept, as a follow-up, the Xperia C4, is in the works, judging by the latest chatter. We've seen a render leaked yesterday, showing off a fairly similar design with an oversized camera on the front, and today, we're looking at what's claimed to be a real-life picture ...

    The Sony Xperia Z4 is not official yet, but it already feels like we've known this phone for so long (and we're not referring to the slight improvements from the Z1 to the Z2 to the Z3, etc.). With all the rumors and leaks that are becoming a daily source of chatter and headlines, we can't help but wonder when is it exactly that Sony decides to finally make the phone official. A Sony Xperia Z4 camera sample has been allegedly leaked. A resized version can be seen below, while the full size of the image is available at the source link. According to the EXIF data, the shot has been taken ...

    Samsung has been consistently using its own processors inside smartphones (some flagships for certain regions in parallel with same versions running Snapdragons, some mid-rangers), until this year the company decided to go all in with the Exynos-powered Galaxy S6 (and Edge). Whether the overheating rumors around the Snapdragon 810 were the reason, or Samsung simply wants to enter the market and compete, is irrelevant at this point. Thing is that this might not be a one time thing. Samsung has the production capacity to produce its own chips, and, according to this latest report, the South ...

    Ready for your daily Sony Xperia Z4 report? Good, because the E6553 Sony model we've recently seen in leaked benchmarks has been allegedly leaked in this set of images you can see above and below. With the Xperia Z3 campaigns switching gears, one could become skeptical about the Z4, and its existence, but the phone should not be far out, with all these rumors, leaks, and reports we're seeing lately. Now, we can't be sure whether these images are really depicting the Xperia Z4, nor whether they're legit or not, but the display on the phone above does seem to indeed show off an E6553 model. ...

    When it comes to Sharp, you can connect the company with the smartphone displays it's been making (and providing other OEMs), or you can easily remember it thanks to the crazy Aquos Crystal smartphone. However, there are some worrying bits of information we're hearing about the Japanese company looking to spin off its LCD panel unit. The information comes from two different channels (based on their respective sources), and, according to chatter, the spin off would be necessary in order to deal with some financial difficulties the company has been going through; if it happens, it should ...

    Well, March 27 came and went without the release of OxygenOS, and OnePlus apologized for that, but over the weekend, with a little bit of delay, the Lollipop-based custom operating system is finally live, and ready for you to check out, should you feel adventurous or ready to bring a breath of fresh air to your OnePlus One smartphone. What should you expect? A very light Android 5.0.2-based OS, but packed with essential features, as OnePlus puts it, with some non-Lollipop specific features that the company underlines: Gestures: Several original OnePlus features have been built right into ...

    Update: The render at the very bottom has been leaked by @upleaks, and it shows off the back of the alleged phone, complete with the three color options that will purportedly be available (though the duotone build is not visible from this angle). We can also look at the DuoCamera setup, as well as the dual-tone LED flash. Promotional images for HTC's April 8 event have been leaked yesterday, showing off the phone tentatively called the One M9+, and some of its key features. While said promo materials didn't mention the device by its name, today's set of leaked renders and slides ...

    HTC looks to be on the roll lately, with the announcement of the One E9+, One M8s, and the Taiwanese 64GB variant of the One M9. There's still at least one phone to look out for; it's been rumored, it's been leaked, and now more HTC One M9+ details arrive thanks to some leaked promotional materials. Tentatively leaked in yesterday's renders, the HTC One M9+ is also subject to an April 8 event in Beijing. Following the same visual style are today's three promotional slides leaked, showing off various aspects of the upcoming phone. They emphasize on the screen, build (materials as well as ...

    After officially introducing the HTC One M9 -- make sure to check out our review in case you missed it -- at the 2015 MWC, the Taiwanese phone-maker followed up with a new phone announcement, introducing the HTC One E9+. However, the HTC One M9+ rumors don't seem to stop, after recently seeing what it is believed to be an official invite to an M9+ event. Now we're seeing to high-rez leaks leaked purportedly showing off the One M9+ (tentative name), an unannounced handset that takes the fingerprint scanner from the back of the One Max (M7 family), and puts is right were Samsung likes to ...

    There are 27 days left for all of us to see what LG has in store for 2015. Whether it's the LG G4, the G4 Note, or whatever its name will be, we're pretty sure the event invites that went out were referring to a flagship device. And that leather stitching surely is interesting, but we might read too much into it. The images above and below belong to accessory maker Versus, and they're all protective cases for what it's claimed to be the upcoming G4. There are a lot of arguments pro and against LG going with a curved screen on the G4, but, regardless of what you tend to believe, LG can ...

    After a short break, we are starting to hear more Sony Xperia Z4 rumors. Last time we looked at a Z4 report we've seen an alleged display panel leaked, and, according to the information contained within the report itself, we were looking at a 5.2-inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Now, some benchmark results for a phone (E6553) believed to be the upcoming Xperia Z4 debunks some of the things we are anticipating, while confirming others. Let's start with the screen: instead of the above mentioned/rumored 5.2-inch unit, the benchmark result lists a 5.1-inch display ...

    I don’t know about you, but I am torn between the good looks of today’s phones, the slender and slim profile, and the average (I’m being kind) battery performance. Sure, I am a pretty heavy smartphone user, with tons of emails, texts, and phone calls, along with occasional navigation and media consumption, but I’d really like to not charge my phone every day. It's obvious, though: as phones become thinner and thinner, batteries need to follow suit, and reduced capacity is the natural result. What I don’t understand is why on Earth everyone is striving to make slimmer and slimmer ...

    HTC's Vice President of Design, Jonah Becker, announced on Twitter that he steps down from his role within HTC, after seventeen years of being with the company. While he prepares for his "new adventure" -- most probably outside of HTC -- we can't help but wonder what will happen to the Taiwanese phone maker and its upcoming models. Becker is one of the people you can thank for the great design of the HTC One M8 (and M9, since they're so alike), but his departure comes less than a year after taking on this position from his predecessor, Scott Croyle. Becker's announcement comes right after ...

    We've seen an alleged LG G4 leaked with a curved display, and, while a curved G4 would make a lot of sense for some, we don't think that it might be feasible, with the G Flex 2 already out, and with great specs. Other reports claim that it might be similar to the G3 in some aspects, but the purported LG G4 leaked today seems to be a regular phone (meaning not curved screen and other bells and whistles). While the original leakster claims that there is a stylus on the back, top left corner, we can't really take this for granted as LG phones, at least in their initial, domestic versions, ...
