    We've been hearing a lot about the Nokia Lumia 530 recently, and just yesterday, the phone was teased by a Vietnamese online retailer. Today, Nokia has made the phone official, and, while the Finns call it "the most affordable Lumia yet", it runs the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system: Windows Phone 8.1. €85 before taxes and subsidies is what you should expect this phone to cost, when it will start rolling out in select markets next month. For the money you can choose between a single and a dual-SIM version, both of which are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm ...

    The Oppo Find 7 is the Find 7a's bigger brother, but they could very well be considered twins: if not only for the identical looks, then because of the fact that these two Chinese-made devices were announced at the same time. And as with any twins, the differences are on the inside: the Find 7 is Oppo's current flagship, and brings a few crucial enhancements over the previous flagship, the Find 7a. Walking around with this device during our week-long review period definitely turned heads. Oppo is not a brand that enjoys wide recognition in Europe, and the situation is the same in ...

    Ever since the very first Lumia devices from Nokia, everyone wondered what would happen if these Nokia smartphones ran Android. A Lumia running Android was even more wished for once the Lumia 1020 landed, making everyone wonder how a great camera would do on the market if it was powered by Android, and build by Nokia. Fast forward to today, and we've got a pretty interesting leak (or prediction) from @evleaks. According to the latest bits, a Lumia running Android is incoming, made by "Nokia by Microsoft". This is a great tease for many out there, but unfortunately, it will stay that way ...

    There are two versions of the LG G3: one that sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. We've already seen how the US carrier models will look like -- and that Sprint will apparently have no intrusive branding on the device -- but we had no information on which version the network operators will go for. Apparently, the Sprint LG G3 will be the highest end version, according to recent leaks. The carrier will start taking pre-orders on July 11, with the phone shipping on July 18, and, the screenshots below seem to confirm the 3GB of RAM / ...

    The LG G3 did well in our review, being one of the 2014 Android flagships to want, together with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, and Sony Xperia Z2. However, our review was based on opinions formed while using a South Korean version of the device, with an American carrier unit not being available. That being said, thanks to @evleaks, we're seeing all (major) four US carrier models being leaked in press renders, as seen above. From left to right, we're seeing the upcoming Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions. Interestingly, of all four devices, only Sprint version (as ...

    The Samsung Galaxy F leaked today, in what is claimed to be a real-life picture of the upcoming device. We've heard a lot of rumors and seen a lot of leaks recently regarding the device, but most of them were in the form of leaked press renders. The image above is claimed to be representing the Galaxy F, and you can immediately notice the metal frame around the screen. If you think it resembles the chamfered edges on the iPhone 5/5s, or the HTC One/One M8, you're not wrong. However, the interesting bit comes in the report that accompanies the image. Apparently, according to unnamed sources ...

    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 ...
