    Many of you may not remember this, but at the launch of the first-generation iPhone, the average size on a smartphone display was around 2.5-inches. Apple started to create the need for a bigger smartphone display, but the competition has left the Cupertino kids way behind over the last couple of years. Since then, Apple has touted that one-handed usability is the company's priority, and when we go through the leaks of the iPhone 6, it seems that even then, Apple is figuring something out. The same New York Times article that we discussed earlier also sheds some light on what to expect for ...

    If you've kept track of all the recent changes that have emerged on five beta updates for iOS 8, it's clear that Apple needs a wearable in order for some of these services to work.

Whatever the case may be, we've got new rumors on what to expect. Both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times have posted rumors on what to expect from the iWatch. To narrow these down on one post, the reports claim that there will be two iWatch models, ...

    Microsoft and its partners are really making a compelling case for the reasons why you shouldn't buy a tablet running a mobile operating system. Just a few months ago we saw some very affordable Dell Venue tablets running a full version of Windows 8 and with price tags that even make the iPad mini look expensive, but this wasn't the end of it. As IFA 2014 continues to wow us with more products for this fall, Acer has just raised its hand with another hot Windows tablet. Acer has just announced the Iconia Tab 8 W, and just before you dismiss it as another Windows tablet to look at, there ...

    Apple has proven to be quite unpredictable in recent years. This is the company that sometimes retains a design for two or three years while just upgrading internals, and then we have cases like the iPad 2 that was a dramatic refresh to the first-generation iPad. Most of us were expecting for the next-generation iPad Air to retain the design elements of the exiting model, but more reports claim otherwise. Digitimes reports that Apple's suppliers are already ramping up component production for a new iPad Air that will actually be thinner than the existing model. We have seem some leaks here ...

    Sony is one of the known pioneers of the smartwatch market, so much so, that the brand "SmartWatch" belongs to the company. We wish we could say this legacy would amount to positive results in wearable sales after two SmartWatch attempts, but the truth has been a different story for Sony over the last couple of years. The good thing is that the company is not giving up, and today's IFA press event has seen the launch of the two new Sony wearables that were rumored. The Sony SmartWatch 3 is the company's first Android Wear product, as the company steps away from its proprietary Android ...

    We've been crossing some very conflicting rumors with the Microsoft's Lumia 830. Some of us have speculated that the leaked photos that we've seen aren't of the Lumia 830 because of the 1020-style camera hump, and then there are other rumors that claim that there is a 20-megapixel sensor on this smartphone. Today we get some additional reports that claim that this is just a mid-tier phone in every way. Sources to WPDang are now saying that the Lumia 830 will only sport a 10 megapixel camera, and they also reinforce the previous claims that it sports a 720p display. Obviously these are ...

    Even though we're just a few days away from Motorola's Chicago event, the amount of rumors surrounding the company's future smartphone offerings is still coming strong. The device that's made the most buzz lately is the company's successor to the Moto G. We've spent the last couple of months dubbing it the Moto G2, but it seems that will have to change as of today. We've got some leaked photos of the new Moto G in its retail packaging over at a retail warehouse in India, and if we're calling it just the "new Moto G," that's because the box states that this is just the Moto G. This device ...

    We've been following Meizu's MX4 for the last couple of weeks, and there's actually a reason for that. If you thought Apple and HTC are the only companies that know how to pull of a hot aluminum phone, think again. The Meizu MX4 was rumored to bring one of the most amazing screen-to-body ratios of the market, and the company has delivered. Today the Meizu MX4 goes on pre-order in China, and the spec sheet is rather impressive for a market that prefers mid tiered phones. The MX4 sports a 5.36-inch display rocking 1920 x 1152 resolution, bringing you a good 418 PPI on a display that gives ...

    If you have a hard look at all the changes that come with iOS 8, it's clear that Apple has to launch a wearable along with it. Some of the newest reports claim that Apple will announce the iWatch on September 9 along with the iPhone, but most of the other sources claim that we might not see a launch until December. Some of the latest rumors now claim that we won't see an iWatch until 2015, and today's source explains why. Digitimes is reporting that the reason why the iWatch might not see the light of day until 2015 is because the device has barely entered its "engineer verification test" ...

We've seen a ton of leaked parts of both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but we haven't really seen what these parts will look like once they're assembled. A Russian website has just taken the time to do all that dirty work for us, and the results are actually quite elegant. Russian YouTuber Rozetked has just filmed a full video of some leaked assembled parts of the iPhone 6 in order to give us a full glimpse of what the 4.7-inch variant will look like. You'll notice ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 has already proven to bring Microsoft's mobile operating system to the level it needed in order to compete with other platforms.
