    We've heard a lot about OnePlus, and their first smartphone, the One, or, the "2014 Flagship Killer", as the company has been slowly building up the buzz and anticipation around the device. The phone has been finally made public today as the company announced its first, Cyanogen-powered device. "Never settle" is the motto behind it, and, as we've recently seen, our readers prefer more bang for their buck, opposed to cheaper options. What if there was a phone that could bring the best of both worlds? We're talking about a phone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a quad-core ...

    Call it the Samsung Galaxy K, the Galaxy S5 Zoom, or the Galaxy K Zoom, we all know what we're talking about: it's the 2014 follow-up to last year's Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. We've already heard about it, and it seems like a logical move for the South Koreans to follow last year's pattern, which includes a camera with a phone, alongside the mini version of the flagship. April 29 should be the day of its unveiling, if the reports and chit-chat are spot on, and a week before that, we're seeing some leaked images of what the device might look like. As you'd expect, it is still a camera with a ...

    We'll be honest: we don't really know if this is a giant seven-inch Samsung phone, or a tablet with phone capabilities like the ASUS Fonepad. What we do know, thanks to TENAA, China’s Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center, is that it is made by Samsung, and has the model number Samsung SM-T2558. There are also pictures of the device, as seen above, and below. The resolution is 1280 × 720 on a seven-inch form factor, and its physical dimensions surely place it in the tablet category, at 191.24 x 99.7 x 8.95 mm, and 245 grams. Powering it is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and a ...

    Sense 6.0 is gracing the HTC One (M8), as you've probably heard and seen in our exhaustive full review of the Taiwanese 2014 flagship. However, HTC committed to bringing Sense 6.0 to last year's flagship, the HTC One (M7), and a timeframe for that is, according to HTC America's Jason Mackenzie, "by end of May". In order to keep things transparent, and customers up to date with its efforts, HTC has made the page sourced below available; you can track the status of the Sense 6.0 update for your 2013 HTC One (M7), and, as you can see, in the US, all version have an "integration" status, ...

    Our full Windows Phone 8.1 review -- which, if you haven't read, go ahead and check it out, it's comprehensive -- states: "while the People hub remains, it serves principally as a feed aggregator: Twitter and Facebook posts still show up within, but tapping on them takes you not to a custom People page but to the post within the appropriate app." Microsoft pretty much removed the Facebook and Twitter integration from the People Hub, but, at the same time, allowed for applications to plug in to it. An example is the new Twitter Beta for Windows Phone 8.1 app -- for Windows Phone 8.1 users ...

    Samsung is expecting the Galaxy S 5 to outsell last year's GS4, and the expectations so far seem to match the events on the market, as this year's flagship is doing pretty well in its initial stages of availability. According to a Telegraph report, former iPhone users have a big merit in all this, as, apparently, over one third of those who upgraded to the GS5 taking advantage of a trade-in program were ex-iPhone owners. Most customers were coming from an iPhone 4S, generating a more than 200% increase in iPhone trade-ins -- according to CompareMyMobile, quoted by The Telegraph -- followed ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 will outsell its predecessor from 2013, the GS4, according to optimistic predictions of a Samsung top executive, quoted by Reuters. History teaches us that this has been the case in previous years, so there's really nothing groundbreaking in these expectations. The South Koreans have done everything in their power to create the perfect conditions for this to happen, including price, gifts, as well as dramatically increasing initial roll-out market numbers. The executive continued saying the S5 "is selling faster than the S4 so far, though it's difficult to share ...

    Last week we heard about the possible Microsoft post-Windows Phone 8.1 update strategy, namely that three GDR updates might be in the works (GDR1 and GDR2 for this year, and GDR3 for possibly early 2015). While these, at the moment, are just rumors, a new report has surfaced trying to shed more light on GDR2 (as GDR1 is allegedly going to be a bug fix release). Unverified sources claim that Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 will add support for 2K resolution displays, alongside the addition of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 SoCs.  These are, according to Qualcomm's own claims, quad core Krait 450 CPUs ...

    A smartphone kill switch, as described by CTIA's Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment, is "a baseline anti-theft tool" which will come, at no additional cost to the customer, pre-installed, or downloadable, on the first phones produced after July 2015, by the manufacturers adhering to the document. Network operators, manufacturers, and OS builders that adhered so far include Apple, AT&T, Google, HTC, Huawei, Motorola, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless. This so called kill switch will likely grace your next phone -- if manufactured ...

    Our Samsung Gear 2 Neo unboxing video is here, but, we'll be honest straight from paragraph no. 1: we'll wait for our Samsung Galaxy S 5 review unit to land at our doorstep until we'll review the smartwatch. Why? Because we want to take advantage of the added features of the S5 on one hand, and, on the other hand, we want to experience the complete 2014 line-up UX, as Samsung intended it at the Barcelona launch event. As far as the Gear 2 Neo is concerned, we're looking at a natural evolution of last year's Galaxy Gear, with some design, internals, as well as functionality improvements. It ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 might not be available for your phone just yet -- but it will hopefully arrive soon -- but Microsoft seems to be preparing everything for when the refresh hits your device. And, if you own a Windows Phone, chances are you're using a PC; however, if you're the exception, and your computer of choice is a Mac, you might want to update your Windows Phone app client. The new version is available to download and Windows Phone 8.1 support is just one of the changes Microsoft added to the app. You will now also be able to drag and drop .DNG files to Browse Device UI, and there ...

    The upcoming point-update to Android, version 4.4.3, is expected to be nothing more than a bug fix release, according to some earlier reports. The public release of the refresh is expected to happen in the near future (coming weeks, according to reports), but Google has allegedly started the dogfooding process for Android 4.4.3. (You can learn about Dog Food releases by reading this article) According to the most recent rumors, Android 4.4.3 is being pushed out to 1% of Google employees outside of the Android team, AndroidPolice has found out from "several reliable sources". The entire ...

    There are a couple of more changes in place over at Motorola, like naming Rick Osterloh as President and COO or Motorola Mobility. As per the official Motorola Blog, Rick Osterloh assumes the role immediately and will report, until the Lenovo acquisition is completed, to the Motorola Operating Board at Google. Over the past two years, Rick Osterloh "has been leading all product management" at Motorola, but he has also worked at Skype until Microsoft decided to acquire the company. Meanwhile, Jonathan Rosenberg -- who stepped in as COO on April 1, following Dennis Woodside's departure ...

    An August/September timeframe has been mentioned in the most recent Apple iWatch rumors we've reported -- alongside some UV-light exposure sensors -- and now another rumor seems to predict the same period: September, to be more specific. It is, however, based on anonymous industry sources, so treat the information accordingly. Furthermore, the report claims that Flexium Interconnect, Zhen Ding Technology Holding and Career Technology, have all dispatched their flexible PCB samples (printed circuit board) -- Apple iWatch components -- to Cupertino for validation. The reports continues to ...
