    If history is of any indication, we should expect to see an incremental update this year from Apple with the 2015 iPhone. Whether it will wear the iPhone 6s (and iPhone 6s Plus), or another moniker, it should be a hardware refresh, rather than a major release, which usually happens every two generations. We're going to ...

    There's really not much to complain about when it comes to the HTC One M9. The company's 2015 flagship is an improvement in almost every aspect over last year's model -- and our review is there to prove it -- but the performance figures and numbers from the market seem to tell a different story, as we're recently heard ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the ...

    For a while now, we've been expecting Google to do something new with cases for its Nexus devices. Rumors emerged last year about a custom case program for the Nexus 5, one we saw mature to support the Nexus 6 as new evidence emerged last month.

    There are plenty of smartphones that like to push physical limitations, whether that means being nearly phablet-sized, having a super-thin body, or offering a display that seems to fill the phone's face, with barely a hint of a bezel to be found.

    Last September, I went to Motorola’s headquarters with Adam Doud for the company's 2014 Moto X unveiling. They took us through their manufacturing process for the phone, and we got a behind-the-scenes look at how they incorporate the Horween leather onto the Moto X. I briefly got to pick up the leather units, but at ...

    Apple had to spend a lot of time thinking about its user interface when dreaming up the Apple Watch, and one of the decisions it ended up making concerned the introduction of a new font. Rather than stick with the Helvetica Neue that's the current system font for both iOS and OS X, Apple chose a typeface it calls San ...

    Last year Samsung kicked off its Galaxy A series of smartphones with models like the A3 and A5, a lineup it fleshed out earlier this year with the A7.

    Too often in the smartphone world, companies clam up the moment an interesting rumor comes along. When we'd love nothing more than for one of them to own up and confirm, “yup, that's what we're doing; someone figured it out,” instead we get “our policy is not to comment on rumors and speculation.” And while ...

And the year before that, we saw the Optimus G Pro. If a report from Focus Taiwan quoting LG executive Eason Shao is accurate, ...
