    Even though tablet sales are stagnant at the moment, we all have the impression that we're really only seeing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the potential of this technology. Microsoft Research has been doing some amazing working in bringing smart haptic feedback to smartphone and tablet displays in order to give users a sense of texture, but this is just one of many projects. Today we learn of the company's new plans, and if these work, they're on to something big for professionals. Microsoft Research has just demoed a new transparent smart cover that we can really call "smart." ...

    One of the biggest questions that was left on the table with the launch of the iPhone 6 is its lack of sapphire. We heard significant teasers that Apple would include the technology on its latest smartphones, tablets and wearables, and for the time being the material can only be found on certain elements of the iPhone 6. If you're wondering why this is, it seems that a new twist in the production of sapphire could be to blame. Apple's sapphire partner GT Advanced Technologies has just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. That said, it seems that there isn't much to worry about here. GT ...

    With all the hype that Apple has been able to create around the Apple Watch, the only thing that's left for the company to achieve is to be able to start selling it. The last time that Apple took six months between a product announcement and a launch was with the original iPhone in 2007, so there is a significant amount of pressure on Cupertino's shoulders. If you're wondering exactly when we should expect the product to reach the market, we've heard a couple of rumors here and there, and today we get some extra confirmation. Analysts have already begun to predict that we shouldn't expect ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Alpha lineup has proven to be one of the oddest products of the year. While we do praise the company for boosting the quality of its hardware with these devices, we still can't understand why the company has decided to pull back from including some flagship specs. If you thought the Galaxy Alpha was alone in Samsung's plans, the recent leaks of the Galaxy A5 prove things differently, and it seems the new iterations are close to a launch. Today we find the first leaked press renders of the Samsung Galaxy A5. Once press renders begin to emerge, a device could be just a ...

    The LG G Flex is still regarded as one of the most interesting innovations of our time. By interesting we're not really calling it the best one, as many of us were disappointed by the quality of the display, but other technologies like the self-healing coating did make some positive headlines. We're still waiting to see what LG is planning for this product's future, and today we get some hints on what to expect. LG has just visited the USPTO with some new trademarks, and these all seem to be focused on the future names for the G Flex. The patent names were G Flex Frame, G Frame, and F ...

    There is a time when comparisons get tough. Yes, believe it or not, there are cases where we compare two great phones and find it hard to decide on a winner. On one hand we have Apple’s latest iPhone, which has gained the praise of most of our editorial team, and on the other hand we have the LG G3, considered by most to be the ultimate powerhouse. Would it be fair to declare a winner in the case of two devices that were clearly designed with different users in mind? Would it also be fair to declare both devices as winners when their differences are so substantial? Make sure you watch ...

    A couple of years ago, choosing an iPhone was easy since there was only one device to choose from. Apple changed things up a bit with the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, but hardware internals aside, both devices were really the same size. Apple’s smartphone strategy for this year is significantly different. For the first time ever we see the company offering an iPhone in three different sizes, and if you’re still debating if the iPhone 6 is a better choice over the iPhone 5s, you’ve come to the right place. If you pay attention to all of the iPhone haters out there, you could ...

    Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6 has definitely made a ton of headlines. From the acclaimed “bendgate” issues of the iPhone 6 Plus, to this being Apple’s best selling iPhone lineup in history, a lot is to be expected from Apple’s latest and greates smartphone. Is this iPhone really worth your money, or should you consider other Android options in the market? My Twitter account has been on fire lately, and that’s mainly because I was the guy that ditched the iPhone 5s for an HTC One M8 a few months ago. Now that everyone has learned that I’m back to using an iPhone 6, it’s ...
