    After the Oppo N1 in 2013, we've got the Oppo N3 this year (don't ask us what happened to the Oppo N2). ...and we're glad to see the N3 and welcome it in our labs, because we're excited about that motorised swivelling camera even before using it -- and while knowing that this is the sort of gimmick you'll probably use in the first couple of days, and when you want to show it off to your friends. As a successor to the Oppo N1, it is definitely a step-up in every aspect. However, if you compare it to the Oppo Find 7, the Find 7 is still the higher-end phone, not by a lot, but if a slightly ...

    You see, titles like world's first, world's fastest, world's lightest, and so on, in the world we're living in, and, especially, in the industry we're covering, only last for a little while. ...until someone else makes a better, faster, lighter device, and then that other manufacturer gets the title. The iPhone 6 is pretty slim by itself, and then we've seen how thin the new Oppo R5 is, but we've already heard that there's a new "world's thinnest" in the works, coming from Vivo. Today, that title belongs to the Vivo X5 Max, just announced. We have no idea who it will belong to tomorrow, or ...

    About the HTC Desire 620 we knew that it would come as a follow-up to the Desire 610, and that it would probably look like the device extensively leaked not long ago. However, today, the Taiwanese phone maker made the Desire 620 official, and it will be available in Marble White and Tuxedo Grey colors in the first quarter of 2015 (some markets will even get the Saffron Grey variant -- last two pictures on the bottom). Weighing 145 grams, the Desire 620 will measure 150,1 x 72,7 x 9,6mm, and will pack a five-inch Super LCD HD screen with 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels). Under the hood ...

    If you've invested in the Apple ecosystem and have an iPhone or an iPad, maybe both, and a Mac to accompany them, chances are that you're blasting your multimedia on an Apple TV. However, if you're the same person but, instead of the Apple ecosystem, you're invested in the Google one, chances are that you already have a Chromecast. Not to mention the incredibly irresistible price tag that makes you buy one even if you're a user of another platform. We've looked at the Chromecast back when it was super hot, and now it's time for the fine folks of India to grab their own HDMI dongle. It will ...

    Whether the so called "HTC Hima" we've seen leaked/rumored last week will turn out to be the HTC One M9 -- follow-up to the M8 from this year, which replaces the M7 from 2013 -- is anyone's guess, but we've heard not one, but two reports talking about the upcoming 2015 HTC One, and its purported specs. Interestingly, they try to anticipate a 5.5-inch display but what we see here attached seems to be just a tad smaller. Despite the claims, there is no way to verify whether this is indeed a 5.2-inch front glass, let alone to verify the legitimacy of the images, or the smartphone they (will) ...

    If you purchased a 2014 Moto G then you're probably already using the latest Google has to offer with Android 5.0 Lollipop, as the update landed about a month ago. But what about those early adopters which grabbed the original Moto G model, the original Moto X's younger sibling? Well, Motorola has already sent out an app update preparing the device for the upcoming OS refresh, and, it looks like that Lollipop dessert is on its way. According to Motorola's Indian support page for the phone, the Moto G Lollipop update for the first-gen phone is rolling out already. After telling all users ...

    It's been a while since we last heard of Sprint's HTC 8XT Windows Phone -- when it was "demoted" to "basic phone" status -- let alone since we reviewed it and concluded it is/was a "midrange phone in flagship clothing". That being said, there are a lot of things to like about the phone, and some which we didn't necessarily got excited over. One of the things HTC 8XT owners did definitely not like about the device was the fact that it was still stuck on Windows Phone 8, with which it shipped out of the box. According to HTC's Twitter account, the Sprint HTC 8XT Windows Phone 8.1 update ...

    Sony has managed to start the Android 5.0 Lollipop update earlier than HTC for its Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition smartphone. However, HTC has been teasing the refresh for more than two weeks now, but, after running into some problems, the entire procedure was postponed to a later date, without a specific ETA. It's going to be a sweet weekend for owners of this specific phone, as the HTC One M8 GPe Lollipop update will start rolling out at noon on Friday, December 5, 2014. The information comes from Twitter where HTC's Executive Mo Versi confirmed that technical approval has been ...

    Yesterday we heard unconfirmed reports that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra Lollipop update for the Google Play Edition version of the phone has been rolled out, but today, we're seeing official confirmation from the manufacturer itself concerning the latest and greatest from Google. A post on the official Sony Mobile blog confirms that Lollipop rolls out starting this week for the GPe variant, though some regions might get it earlier than others. Aside from the latest version of Android, with all the fixes, features, and beautification (Material Design), the firmware update also brings the new ...

    While HTC is still struggling (and owners are still eagerly waiting) to get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on HTC One Google Play Edition devices, other manufacturers who have GPe phones are offering the latest dessert treat to owners of their own GPe devices. The Google Play Edition Sony Xperia Z Ultra Lollipop update has been allegedly spotted reaching at least one phone, if the screenshot above turns out to be true. There is no official word yet but according to the information unveiled by that certain device's owner, the refresh should weigh about 400 MB and should update your phone ...

    Rumors of a bigger than the biggest iPad have been in the headlines for quite some time, but it was only last week that they returned, stronger than ever, with a report from Japan showing off alleged schematics of the so-called iPad Air Pro (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, you get the idea), which would purportedly pack a 12.2-inch, not a 12.9-inch screen. That is big! But just how big is it? In the video below, you can see a mock-up of said Apple iPad Air Pro size compared to other Apple devices (phones and tablets), so that you can get a sense of its size. At dimensions like 305.31 x 220.8 x 7 ...

    We asked ourselves where all the new Windows Phones were, with the 8.1 update already being rolled out, and, recently, we've heard reports of not one, but three new Microsoft-powered devices being allegedly in the works. That, of course, before hearing reports of a 50MP Windows Phone from Microsoft, a possible Lumia 1020 follow-up (which might or might not be part of the aforementioned three), but which apparently is lacking a xenon flash. Lava, however, seems to not care about all the speculation. You might remember the company and its name from the other Iris phones (and ties to ...

    There were strong indications earlier this week that the European Parliament would prefer a situation in which Google's search would be chopped off from other divisions of the company. Today, the EU's legislative has passed a resolution concerning the matter, with 384 legislators in favor, 174 against and 56 abstentions. According to the resolution, “the online search market is of particular importance in ensuring competitive conditions within the digital single market”, and calls on the European Commission “to prevent any abuse in the marketing of interlinked services by operators ...

    LG not only managed to have a great third quarter this year, but 2014 in its entirety smiled upon the South Korean manufacturer's mobile division. Phones like the LG G3 and its variants have something to offer for everyone, and, as our review can testify, the flagship for this year does a great job at being right there with the rest of the smartphones from other competitors. 17 million smartphones were shipped in Q3 (up 16 percent from the quarter before), with revenue of $4.14 billion, out of which $163 million being profit. So, it's definitely not bad performance behind this move, as ...
