    While only the HTC Desire 816 and 610 have made it to the Barcelona MWC 2014 announcement (and out of the two, only the 816 made it to the hands-on area), today the company sent out a press release where we see the HTC Desire 310 announced. Blue, white and orange color options are available, as well as the option to use two SIM cards within the device. The HTC Desire 310 announced today -- both single and dual-SIM versions -- sports a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage, of course, expandable via microSD card. The screen is a 4.5-incher with FWVGA (480 x 854 ...

    If you're a Windows Phone user chances are that your preferred cloud storage service is Microsoft's own offering, SkyDrive (now called OneDrive). However, if you're a BlackBerry person, you can now also choose OneDrive, in addition to other options like DropBox or Box, for which apps have been available for some time now. At the source link below you will be able to download the "Connect to Microsoft OneDrive" app for your BlackBerry 10 powered smartphone. It looks and behaves pretty much like the other two clients, with the ability to automatically back up pictures and videos you capture ...

    At the HTC event at MWC 2014 we've seen Peter Chou on stage showing off the Desire 816, but the press release that was sent out also contained the HTC Desire 610, which was sadly not available in Barcelona. To refresh your memory, it packs a 4.7-inch display with qHD resolution of 540 by 960 pixels, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (expandable), eight-megapixel camera, 1.3MP front-facer, and a 2,040mAh battery. While availability is expected in Europe for May, @evleaks has unveiled that the phone will also join AT&T's line-up in ...

    As the leak suggested last month, owners of a Samsung Galaxy S 4 on Sprint's network were able to install the latest official Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on their phones starting February 13. Additionally, Note 3 owners on the Now Network joined the KitKat party on February 20, but now the carrier is publishing further details regarding Samsung phones and the 4.4.2 refresh. If you have a Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S 4 mini, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Mega, or a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, you shouldn't worry, because Sprint is planning on updating these devices as well. While there is no  estimate of when ...

    We've seen the LG L90, alongside the rest of the L Series III phones -- L35, L40, L65, L70 -- at the Barcelona show floor last week while at MWC 2014, but the South Korean phone maker has now made the device official via a press release that states it will start rolling out next week, initially in the CIS region followed by other markets around the world. It packs a 4.7-inch qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution and it is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor; there's also one gig of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card), an eight/five-megapixel camera on ...

    When LG filed to trademark the "G3" moniker back in February, we were glad to see it happen, but definitely not surprised by the company's action. The G2, while still a great device, needs a worthy follow-up which can compete with the already announced Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, and the upcoming HTC flagship. While we advise you to treat this with the usual dose of salt, we'd definitely be happy to see it happen. Reports are talking about a possible June launch for the LG G3. There are no other details, though the rumor talks about a new type of display on the flagship. The South ...

    At Mobile World Congress, Microsoft has promised a Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone that would be available soon. Making good on its promise, the official chat client is now available to download from the Windows Store, at the source link below. If you're using Facebook's chat service to communicate with friends, you should definitely give it a try, as it offers a better user experience than the Facebook app itself (or the Windows Phone Messages integration with the service). With the app you can read your messages without opening Facebook, send and receive stickers and photos, share ...

    The Galaxy S5 presentation video below has been published by Samsung today and it demonstrates the key features of the newly announced S-flagship for 2014. While it doesn't specifically emphasize on specifications and internals, it does however try to underline the key features that differentiate it from the competition, as well as its predecessor. On that note, you will see the available colors, some of the camera features, power saving mode, heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner, and some more. If you want to see more Galaxy S5 action, you can also look at our exhaustive coverage from ...

    Just like its predecessor (the Sony Xperia Z1), the Xperia Z2 also has contacts on its left side that allow the phone to be easily docked. While the Xperia Z1 was using the official DK31 magnetic dock, Xperia Z2 owners will need the new DK36 magnetic dock for their phones. While the device itself will not reach retailer shelves until the beginning of April, the dock can be now ordered in the UK. The Sony Xperia Z2 DK36 magnetic dock goes for £29.16 (£34.99, including VAT), which translates to roughly $50, and allows you to not only charge the phone in a convenient way, but also prop it ...

    While some versions of the phone have already received the HTC One Android 4.4.2 KitKat update (like the Google Play Edition, some US versions, as well as Indian and European variants), others are just now getting a notification that the firmware is available. This was the case with our UK unlocked HTC One the other day, and it looks like HTC is pulling the plug temporarily. An official statement from the manufacturer says: "we are aware that a limited number of HTC users are experiencing difficulties with the KitKat update. As a result, all FOTA updates have been temporarily suspended. ...

    Not a show goes by without a lot of extra footage for the videos we do. Despite hands-on videos, and comparisons, being about three-to-five minutes long, we don't get everything right from the first take; hence, the videos are much longer than what you guys see. However, you're missing a huge opportunity to see how we're having fun while saying stupid things on camera. This is why we're continuing our series with MWC 2014 bloopers. Compiled from all the extra footage we have, for your viewing pleasure. And, since this MWC was covered by Anton D. Nagy and Jaime Rivera, you know you can ...

    The difference between the Huawei MediaPad M1 and the Apple iPad Mini (and ...with Retina Display) is very small: 0.1 inches. ...but seriously, we're comparing the two in this Huawei MediaPad M1 vs Apple iPad Mini video, and we're looking at similarities, and differences, between the two. You won't see any Android vs iOS remarks in this clip, as this is a question you'll have to answer, in this particular case, yourself. The two OSes couldn't be any more different, and the two tablets are different themselves too. Whether we talk resolution, processing power, or storage, they have very ...

    The second tablet Huawei showed off today (if we consider the MediaPad X1 crossover as a pure slate) is the MediaPad M1 8.0. As its name implies, it is somewhat larger than the phone-enabled phablet, but if you think it resembles (a lot) with the HTC One, you're not the only one. Despite being one-inch larger than the X1, the M1 is actually a lower end slate. It features a screen (eight inches) with  1280 x 800 resolution, has a pair of 5MP and 1MP cameras, alongside a 4,800mAh battery. It is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core SoC though which should be enough for most of your tasks. Check ...

    Now that we looked at the Huawei Ascend G6, we're comparing it to a phone that is (somewhat) similar in specs and utility: HTC's One Mini, a mid-range device which has a lot of things in common (and a lot of other things unique) with the Ascend G6. Both of these phones have an aluminum back, but, while the One Mini has a four megapixel "UltraPixel" camera at its back, the Ascend G6's front-facer has a five-megapixel webcam. If that's not enough (or you don't care about taking pictures), it's 720p (One Mini) vs qHD (Ascend G6), and a lot of other discrepancies. Check out the on-site ...

    There were five devices announced by Huawei today at MWC 2014 in Barcelona, which means we have a lot of videos for your viewing pleasure. We're seen the MediaPad X1 hands-0n and comparison videos (against an Apple and a Nexus slate), and now we're looking at the only (real) phone that has seen the light of day: Ascend G6. While it follows the general design guidelines of the Ascend P6 from last year, the G6 has more modest specs (and affordable price). We're looking at a 4.5-inch qHD screen, 1.2GHz SoC, 2,000mAh battery, and an eight-megapixel Sony camera with five-megapixel front-facer, ...
