    Each of these phones is their respective manufacturer’s best phone, to date. Their internals are among the highest-end on the market. So, which one would you choose? The phone made by a company that already has a history of making good smartphones, or the phone from a relatively young manufacturer that wants to prove itself on the market? We hope our LG G3 vs Oppo Find 7 video will help you make up your mind. A phone from China, and a phone from South Korea, both the best that LG and Oppo have ever built, both with exceptional specs on paper. In real life, neither of the two disappoints, ...

    On March 19, Chinese phone-maker Oppo has announced not one, but two phones. The Find 7a -- which we've already reviewed -- and the Find 7, which has just arrive in our Pocketnow labs. The differences between the two are not many, but they are crucial, as the Find 7 was actually the first 2K (QHD) phone to be announced (nota bene, not the first one available though). That being said, this is the Oppo Find 7, joining the 2K display game, where others like the LG G3 (review / rebuttal), and Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A (aka Prime) -- which we're currently testing -- are already present. So, ...

    If you look at the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini vs Sony Xperia Z1 Compact spec comparison sheet below, you'll immediately realize that, while both "mini" phones, they're in different leagues. While Samsung is packing a lot of features (both software and hardware) in the S5 mini, the phone that borrows the flagship's name doesn't pack specifications that are worthy of a flagship. The general mentality OEMs have used in the past was to release "mini" (smaller) versions of their flagships, which weren't only smaller in size, but also lower-specced. However, Sony managed to adopt a mentality which ...

    Last month (June), HTC unveiled its One mini 2, a One M8 miniature look-alike, which we called a "petite luxury" device in our full review. Today, as a natural competition move (and also by tradition), Samsung has unveiled its own mini device, the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. Needless to say that the fight between the two OEMs is going to be as fierce in the "mini" segment as it is in the flagship department, with the One M8 against the Galaxy S5. But how exactly do these two competitors compare in a spec-to-spec showdown? Check out the detailed Samsung Galaxy S5 mini vs HTC One mini 2 spec ...

    After all the rumors and leaks we've seen in the past couple of weeks, Samsung has announced the Galaxy S5 mini, follow-up to last year's S4 mini, and this year's miniature version of its flagship, the S5. It is definitely a step-up from last year's model, and this year, Samsung has decided to include more from the flagship, aside from the looks and the name it tries to capitalize on. The heart-rate monitor is in for the active users among you, coupled with IP67 certified build, in addition to the fingerprint scanner for added security. Android 4.4 KitKat should have no problems running ...

    It was just yesterday when we heard about the Galaxy S5 mini from Samsung, specifically being just around the corner, while the company announced four budget phones: the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2 and the Galaxy Star 2. Today, Samsung announces Galaxy S5 mini, about a year after the announcement of the Galaxy S4 mini. Aside from sharing its bigger brother's name and general aspect, the Galaxy S5 mini has little in common with the flagship under the hood. We have a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 720 x 1280 resolution, a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 1.5GB of ...

    There is no doubt about it: the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will make an appearance, sooner or later. Every year, Samsung releases a Mini version of its flagship. However, there's little in common between the siblings, aside from the Mini (which is not so mini in most cases) trying to capitalize on the flagship's name. Usually, while the phone resembles the flagship, its specs are modest. This year, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will be available starting mid-July, according to a recent report. It is expected to pack a 4.5-inch 720p display, Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) SoC running at 1.4GHz, ...

    Ever since Samsung tested out the waters with its phablet (and the Note line-up quickly became very popular), LG was eager to get in the game as well. The original Optimus VU was unveiled at the 2012 MWC, followed by the VU II post 2012 IFA, and the VU 3 at the end of September 2013. LG's take was different than Samsung's from two main perspectives: the VU phones didn't use a stylus (or pointing device), and adopted a 4:3 aspect ratio for the screen. From what we can deduce from @evleaks' latest tweet, the VU line-up will be replaced (?) by the LG G Stylus. However, if this will indeed be ...

    A Microsoft smartwatch has been in the rumors and headlines for quite some time. Said gadget has been recently confirmed as being in the works, with a feature that we all want other wearables to have: cross-platform compatibility. A recent Microsoft smartwatch report seems to confirm that said gadget is not only in the works, but also that it will indeed work with different platforms. We've heard that Apple's upcoming iWatch might have more than 10 sensors inside; today's report claims that the Microsoft smartwatch will have 11, and it will continuously monitor your heart rate, syncing ...

    The LG G Flex, with its curved display, was making waves at the end of last year. Around that time we saw a Samsung sheet depicting technology advancements over time. According to that, starting mid 2014, all the way through 2015, we should expect to see smartphones with a "bended", flexible display. A recent report citing "sources from the panel industry" claims that both South Korean manufacturers, Samsung and LG, will release flexible display smartphones in September. While September is the perfect time for the Note 4 announcement (at IFA), the sources claim that said flexible display ...

    Now that the Google I/O dust has settled down (just a little bit), we can turn our heads and attention to the main competition: Apple. We're hearing reports talking about the iPhone 6 launch date, and Friday, September 19, 2014, is the date rumored. Apple is expected to unveil a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and apparently there will be no 16GB version; this year, Apple is rumored to only offer 32 and 64GB versions. However, the same way we heard that only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will get OIS features for its camera -- the larger phone being positioned, according to reports, as the premium ...

    Last month the app returned to the Windows Phone store after a hiatus, and the WhatsApp new version brought some new features to the table. The client got functionalities already present on other platforms, but, needless to say, welcome additions if you're using the service on your Microsoft-powered smartphone. If you're heading over to the source link below, or check your Store app on the phone, you'll see that there's a new version of the app available, 2.11.516. While the changelog isn't extensive, you should receive "various enhancements and bug fixes" which will improve your user ...

    The LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are both set to begin sales (or pre-sales) later today, so if you're interested in purchasing an Android Wear watch that's not the Moto 360, you're probably debating between the two. To make the question of LG G Watch vs Samsung Gear live a bit easier, we've put together a table to let you quickly compare the specs of the two smartwatches. On paper, there's not much different between the two. There are differences in four key areas, which is what you should bring into consideration when debating which one to buy. The first is the screen. The G Watch's ...

    Disappointing Samsung earnings are predicted by analysts for the second quarter of 2014. According to those who claim this, the main reasons behind weaker Samsung earnings figures are slower shipments of mobile devices, as well as a stronger currency exchange rate between the South Korean won and the US Dollar. Of course, analysts have been wrong in the past, and phones like the Galaxy S 5 are continuing to break records in terms of sales. According to Samsung Securities Co., the operating profit to be posted for April-June will be about 7.9 trillion won (US$7.74 billion), down from ...

    Phones in general, and smartphones in particular, have become the center of our lives. We not only use them for calls and texts, but information contained on these devices is vast, varying from emails to pictures, and documents. That being the case, phone search conducted by the Police has received some limits, according to a Wednesday Supreme Court ruling. Among items found on those arrested by the Police, phones are considered "powerful devices unlike anything else police may find on someone they arrest", according to the Supreme Court. The ruling states that the Police can not conduct a ...
