    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 to know in which countries Windows Phone excels in the most, the results are in. AdDuplex is usually in charge of providing monthly stats of how specific Windows Phone devices are doing in certain markets. In this occasion, the company decided to use their ad-based metric ...

    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 an update that will provide you with a couple of new enhancements, including some Google Drive integration. The way Gmail and Google Drive will work together going forward is that you can attach Google Drive files easily while you're composing an email. Google will then ...

    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 fact that you still can't customize the buttons of the "quick settings" menu, though hopefully that might change before the final launch. A user recently posted a request on Android's issue tracker for Google to consider your ability to modify the buttons that appear on ...

    As manufacturing of the iPhone 6 continues, leaked parts at different stages of manufacturing will be common leaks going forward.

Feld & Volk is a Russian-based company that specializes in selling luxury modifications for the iPhone. As such, the company claims to have good relationships with iPhone suppliers, and claims that these leaked ...

    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 products and services in ways competitors have a hard time replicating, and it seems that the company's next frontier is haptic feedback. Reports from Asia claim that the iPhone 6 will include a new tactile motor that will apparently cost twice as much as the one found in the ...

    Google's Chromecast continues to surprise us with the amount of things you can do for the $35 you invest in one.

Just weeks after Google announced that you will be able to mirror your display to your existing Chromecast back at Google I/O, the functionality has been pushed to devices today. This new feature is being dubbed "Cast Screen," and can be found in the navigation drawer of the Chromecast application. ...

    Before Microsoft's acquisition, Nokia's mobile device division didn't become famous just because of the great flagship smartphones that it produced, but also because of the entry-level devices that were pushed at amazing price tags. Such is the case of the Lumia 630 that we recently reviewed, in addition to the Lumia 520 as well. Still, we've been following the rumors of the Lumia 530 for a couple of weeks now, and more details have emerged today. After seeing some of the renders of the Lumia 530 in previous leaks, today we see some real photos of the device leaked on Chinese social media. ...

    Only days after the unboxing of Android Wear devices across the United States, it seems Google is hard at work in making these products as reliable as possible. The company pushed a software update to these devices a few days ago, and if you thought those minor bug fixes were all these devices needed, that's far from accurate. The company has just pushed yet another software update today dubbed KMV78X, and given the lack of details of what this update includes, speculation has begun. One of the biggest disappointments is that this software update apparently doesn't fix the paid apps bug ...

    Most of the rumors that surround Apple lately have to do with the company's plans to build a wearable. We're still not sure that it'll be called the "iWatch," but we do know that the company has been hiring people from different sectors in health and fashion in order to build its first smartwatch. The sudden death of the Nike Fuelband has left a ton of very talented people available for such a task, and Apple is already taking action. Two former Nike Fuelband employees have just updated their LinkedIn profiles to confirm that they work for Apple. The two new Cupertino employees are Jon ...

    Android Wear devices are barely shipping for many customers at the moment, and if you thought that the Android hacking community was going to wait to get some work done, think again. The LG G Watch gets its first custom ROM today, and it might be worth considering for some of you. The custom ROM is being dubbed “Ghoma," and was created by famous Android hacker Jakeday. At the moment the improvements are minor, with only some battery life improvements, aside from claims that it reduces lag between the cards UI. Still, we have to remember that this is the first custom ROM for a product ...
