    After Microsoft acquired Nokia's Devices and Services division, it was clear that Windows Phones would be ousted by Microsoft at one point; more recently, the Redmond-based company made the branding switch from Nokia Lumia to Microsoft Lumia, but that doesn't mean that Nokia is saying goodbye to smartphones. According to the most recent rumours, Nokia is preparing a high-end Android-powered smartphone. The report from China claims that the N9 team within the Finnish manufacturer is currently working on a Nokia Android flagship smartphone which will probably be powered by Google's OS. ...

    Samsung is not at all a stranger to court filings, legal actions, and courtrooms in general, across the globe; however, this time the South Korean phone manufacturer isn't fighting Apple (as it does most of the times), but Microsoft. Samsung is regarding Microsoft as a direct hardware competitor (as an effect of the Microsoft-Nokia deal where the Redmond-based company acquired Nokia's Devices and Services division), and thus, refuses to pay royalties. In the light of a previous patent agreement, Samsung was supposed to help Microsoft by building Windows Phones, as well as sharing ...

    Sony has two very compelling smartphones in its line-up for the end of 2014: the Xperia Z3, and the Xperia Z3 Compact. However, things don't seem to look that well on the general; correct us if we're wrong, but Sony has announced in the past, as well as more recently, that it will focus mainly on the high-end market. That didn't stop the Japanese manufacturer from announcing devices like the Xperia E3, or M2 Aqua, to name just a couple. Fierce competition, as well as a relatively high price point for the premium line-up has determined Sony to expect less than what they have predicted. On ...

    We’ve had the pleasure of reviewing all of Sony’s modern “Z” flagships here at Pocketnow, and, if you’ve been following our reviews and scores, you’ve probably noticed that Sony has managed to continuously improve these smartphones. Starting with the Sony Xperia Z in 2013 – which scored 8.5 – followed by the Sony Xperia Z1 in the same year – we rated it 9.1 – to the Sony Xperia Z2 more recently in early 2014 – that got a 9.2 – we've come to the Sony Xperia Z3 review which you’re currently reading (and, as you can see above, rates 9.3). Not only that, but you’ve ...

    At the end of August, Nokia shared important information about the fate of its Here Maps offering, namely, that it will soon be available for Android users. There was a catch though: as an effect on an agreement between Nokia and Samsung, Here Maps for Android will initially be only available for Samsung Galaxy devices. If you do, however, have a such a gadget in your hand, look for Here Maps for Android (currently in beta) in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store, also linked in the source below. You'll be able to take advantage of offline maps and turn-by-turn navigation in all those situations ...

    After bending the Note 4 a week ago, because it can take it (and mostly because the iPhone 6 Plus can't take it: #bendgate), Samsung has officially published a Galaxy Note 4 drop test video on its YouTube channel. Fueled mostly by the success of its previous campaign showing off the durability of the phablet (or simply because it wants to show you just how tough it is), the smartphone in this video is repeatedly dropped from different heights and different angles. Whether it's concrete or solid granite, Samsung drops its phablet on it. The Note 4 drop test video also contains a nice ...

    The last time we heard about the upcoming HTC phone, tentatively named "Eye", was with the occasion of a report that claimed it will sport a 13MP DuoCamera setup. At that time we thought this was no big deal, as the Butterfly 2 already ditched the "four-megapixel UltraPixel" DuoCamera in favor of a 13MP DuoCamera setup. The report was also not in line with previous rumors that claimed the "Eye" would be a "selfie-phone". Today's leak sheds some light on the matter, however, don't forget to grab your pinch of salt. For starters, we're not looking at the HTC One M8 Eye, but rather at the HTC ...

    Some of us here at Pocketnow are die-hard Palm/HP/webOS fans (we won't give names, you know Michael Fisher and Adam Doud anyways), and, fueled by that passion, our own Adam Doud has written a little post imagining the webOS powered smartwatch. The fate of the platform was in question after LG purchased it, and, we were afraid we would not see anything webOS-powered except a couple of TVs or toasters. As it turns out, a special website hosted by LG has popped up (and then it has been later taken down). While it lived, it referenced an SDK (software development kit) for... wait for it... an ...

    What does Apple and Samsung have in common? A lot, we know, but most recently, both companies are struggling with "gates". Apple's got its own #bendgate, while Samsung is trying to cope with #gapgate. However, Samsung, in its most recent social update, is showing off how the Galaxy Note 4 can take bends. The clip doesn't specifically call out Apple, and its iPhone 6 Plus problems (like previous Samsung ads heavily hinted towards the Cupertino-based company), but you get it anyways. Samsung bends a Note 4 in this video, using a three-point robot/machine that applies force to the middle of ...

    The next Nexus phone might be the first made by Motorola, the company that Google purchased, and then sold to Lenovo. The next Nexus phone, so far known by a tentative codename, Shamu, might wear the name of Nexus 6, and that might be because it's the sixth Nexus smartphone, or because it is rumored to have a six-inch(ish) screen. In any case, what you see above, and below, is a Nexus 6 carved out of wood, respecting the 5.9-inch rumored screen measurement, as well as the other bits of information which have leaked in the recent past. Said carved mock-up has been then shot in a Nexus 6 vs ...

    It wasn’t such a long time ago that we reviewed the Sony Xperia Z2, and yet, here we are four and a half months later, reviewing its successor, the Xperia Z3. While there’s absolutely no doubt about the fact that the Z3 is an update to the Z2 – incremental though – and an improvement over its predecessor, should you be disappointed that your current Z2 flagship is no longer the Sony flagship? Should you go out and sell your Z2 in order to grab the new kid on the block? We’ll try to answer that, and more, in our Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z2 comparison video. Before we dive ...

    The "Eye"-codenamed upcoming HTC device is still a mystery. Depending on who you tend to believe, it's all about either the front-facing camera -- for a brand new "selfie" phone, like we didn't have enough of those already -- or, like this most recent report claims, about the main camera. In any case, the consensus is that the "Eye" tentative moniker describes some sort of camera functionality. Today's HTC One M8 Eye rumors try to predict several things: first off, we're seeing the phone being "placed" in the One M8 family, where the original One M8, and the newcomer, the One M8 running ...

    There's been a lot of back-and-forth concerning the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, ever since its introduction at the pre-IFA Unpacked event, where it shared the stage, and spotlight, with the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Most of the speculation was due to Samsung's decision of not giving out too many details, and so reports surfaced regarding availability, stock/shortages, as well as price. While rumors concerning pricing for the Galaxy Note Edge mentioned crazy figures (some going as high as 1,000EUR, which is close to $1,270), we're now getting a better look at what you'll need to pay ...

    Apple and Samsung have become fierce competitors in the past couple of years, since the South Korean manufacturer started taking a continuously larger chunk of the smartphone market in general (Android in specific). This competition is present both in the market, as well as in courtrooms; the marketing department hasn't been left out either, even if Apple's fails to respond. As Apple has just recently announced an all time high, a new record, for the first weekend sales of the 2014 iPhone models -- with more than 10 million units --, Samsung plunges to a two-year low, according to ...

    When we told you, one post earlier, that a hot (hotter) comparison is on its way, we weren't just teasing. Our team on the ground is ready to bring you a comparison between two flagships from the same manufacturer. How is that possible? Well, for a generation (or two) now, the Note family is easily Samsung's second (or fall) flagship, while the S family is the spring one. They're two flagships, each of its certain class, and they can live wonderfully together on the market. But how do they live side-by-side, faced with real-life operation? There's a fundamental difference between these ...
