    Here's another phone from the South Koreans, just a couple of days until the Galaxy S 5 gets into the hands of customers. The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style has been just announced, and it is, as you can probably tell by the naming, and the spec sheet below, a low-end device aimed at the budget market. We're looking at a four-inch WVGA screen underneath which there's a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card), a 1,500mAh battery, five-megapixel main shooter, VGA front-facer, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box (with Samsung's own TouchWiz ...

    A month before Sony announced the Xperia Z2 -- and quite some time after the release of the Xperia Z1 -- the company brought the flagship to America's T-Mobile, so about the only choice you had, if you were in the US, and wanted an Xperia Z1, was to go with the Magenta version. Now that the Z2 is out (or should be soon, but not necessarily in the US), Sony has released a version of the Z1 which appears to be compatible with most US LTE networks. This unlocked Sony Xperia Z1 LTE is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile bands, as well as some from Canada, if you're a traveler. It will set ...

    We've heard a lot about the Verizon Samsung ATIV SE lately, including some leaked official press renders, as well as speculations regarding its internals. Looks like the rumors were spot on, as Verizon has made the Windows Phone available for pre-order on its website. It goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, but if you choose not to sign on the dotted line, it will set you back $599.99. So what's inside the Samsung ATIV SE? A five-inch Full HD (1080p) AMOLED screen, 2.23GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card -- up to 64GB), 13MP ...

    CyanogenMod went commercial back in September, Cyanogen Inc. was formed, and we have since heard of the team being hard at work on bringing their take on Android to phones like the Oppo N1, and others. However, as the company explains, it is growing, and, in order to reflect that, and the direction it's heading in, it needs an evolution of its brand. What you see above is the new official logo for Cyanogen Inc. There's more to it than just a logo, the graphic reflects, as you see below, the three key pillars it is built upon: customization, security, and open source. ...but theres also a ...

    If last year is any indication, the HTC One (M8) should be followed by a HTC One Mini (M5?), just as the One (M7) was followed by the One Mini (M4). It will likely compete against Samsung's Galaxy S5 Mini, whose tentative specs have been recently leaked. We've already heard mentions of the 2014 HTC One Mini, and a carrier even referenced it last week. According to unverified UK retailer inside sources, the 2014 HTC One Mini will be available next month, in May. It will be no surprise that it will inherit most of the looks of the One (M8) -- just like last year's model -- and the screen ...

    The HTC One (M8) has received positive overall feedback -- and there's a reason why it scored so high in our full review -- but at the same time there were voices on the internet -- cause that's what HTC is telling you, to "ask the internet" -- that were not satisfied at all with the black space below the screen, where the HTC logo resides (and where the capacitive buttons were placed on the previous iteration of the phone). According to HTC's own Jeff Gordon, the "black area with the HTC logo" "not "empty" by any means". Apparently, as the HTC exec explains, "underneath is a huge amount ...

    No, we're not seeing a new phone from Motorola, and it's not some sort of ruggedized version of the Moto G we all know. However, there's a bit of a difference in both the naming (with the addition of the "Forte" moniker), and what you get in the package, if you live in Mexico, and you're on Nextel. Expect nothing different from the Moto G Forte than the regular Moto G, but with a back cover; it's actually the Grip Shell, and it comes out of the box, otherwise setting you back around $15. In addition, they're also throwing in 50GB of Google Drive space. While there's no word on the ...

    It was two months ago when we last looked at the official Android distribution numbers, and, many things have changed since, even if nothing really changed. Back in February, Jelly Bean was in the lead, followed by Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, and then KitKat, and today, the order looks to be the same, though the numbers have changed a bit. 61.4% of devices still run one version or the other of Jelly Bean (4.1.x, 4.2.x, or 4.3), up from 60.7% back in February. Ice Cream Sandwich is down a couple of points, and so is Gingerbread, while KitKat is seeing a significant growth. However, ...

    Just as we're expecting an HTC One Mini, we're expecting a Galaxy S5 Mini, pretty much like last year. It has nothing to do with leaks, rumors, predictions, or speculation, it's the way OEMs compete in the non-flagship segment. These phones often have nothing in common with their higher-end siblings, except for the name they carry, but that doesn't stop the manufacturers from releasing them. Back to the topic at hand, the upcoming Galaxy S5 Mini, the Galaxy S4 Mini follow-up. SamMobile claims they've got inside information concerning the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini specs: a 4.5-inch Super ...

    Samsung's Galaxy S 5 might not yet be available for all, but the lucky folks in South Korea, the manufacturer's home market, have been able to purchase it since March 27, basically two weeks earlier than the rest of us. However, according to a report published by Yonhap, the South Korean availability wasn't smooth; its sources mentioned "limited availability through carriers and crackdown on subsidies for new subscribers", as main hurdles. However, despite all of the above, the Galaxy S5 is off to a solid start, in terms of sales. Average daily sales are estimated at 7,000 units, which is ...

    Spotify is the go-to source of many for on-demand music streaming, through its subscription (and free) offerings. Its official clients are available for phones and tablets on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone as well, but starting today, those kicking it to Spotify tunes on the iPhone will be able to be the first ones to experience the redesigned Spotify app. Whether it is "the best looking Spotify ever", as the press release puts it, is up to you. The new version is darker, uses new typography and iconography, and focuses even more on content. In addition to the visual upgrades, the service ...

    The April 2 Nokia event where we expect "#moreLumia" is basically part of the Microsoft Build conference starting today, and, according to both rumors as well as speculation, the world should expect the Lumia 630, alongside the higher-end Lumia 930 Windows Phone devices, powered by the latest iteration of the platform, 8.1. However, a recent report (based on an anonymous tip) claims that the rumored Lumia 930 will not be unveiled; instead, we should prepare to see only the Lumia 630. Another recent report claimed that on April 23 we should be able to get both the 630 and the 930 (in ...

    OWA stands for Outlook Web Access and if you're using Exchange (or Office 365) on your computer's browser, or on your iPhone or iPad, you know it's a pretty handy tool for collaboration and communication. It offers access to e-mail, contacts, calendar, and tasks, pretty much like Google's own suite of products, including Gmail. While Apple users are able to install and use OWA on their iPhones and iPads, Android users will soon be able to do the same. Microsoft has announced the Microsoft OWA Android client, however, without any specific timeframes. We expect the same functionality like on ...

    It's always difficult to accurately predict an upcoming product based on rumors and leaks -- though some were spot on, like all the HTC One M8 stuff we've seen, which turned out to be true -- especially if that product is an upcoming Apple product. We've seen Apple, as a company, turn from the most secretive into the maker of probably the most leaked phone (the iPhone 5s), and the speculation continues with chatter about a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch iPhone. Reuters' supply chain sources claim that production for the screens of the 4.7-inch variant might start as early as next month (May), in ...

    There were a lot of rumors and leaks of Windows Phone 8.1, and its features, and on March 26 we've heard that Microsoft has allegedly finalized core development for the upcoming refresh. According to some recent reports, March 26 was also the day on which Microsoft's OEM partners have gotten their hands on Windows Phone 8.1. What does all this mean? First of all, phone makers can now develop and test firmwares; it also means that Windows Phone 8.1 devices should be just around the corner. WPCentral claims to have information on a certain April 23 date on which the first phones will become ...
