    Back in the days when talking 2G, flip phones, and PocketPC on message boards was still a thing, LG had what you might call a reputation.

    Samsung's "I'm so sexy" ad for the gold Galaxy S5 might have made a significant amount of eyes roll, but it doesn't mean the company wasn't up to something good.

    Is Sony trying to build up a reputation for low-key smartphone launches?

    Chinese manufacturer Gionee has been busy announcing the super-thin Elife S5.1, but thankfully, the Gionee Elife E8 specs we're seeing on Chinese wireless regulator TENAA's website emphasize on something incompatible with thinness: battery size and internals. The large six-inch display has a resolution of 2560x1440 ...

    The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro was announced at the same time with the Mi Note mid-January 2015, and, while we managed to take a very close look at the latter in our full review, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is still just a beast of a phone that we want to have in our labs. It launched in China today, and it will go for 2,999 ...

    Motorola introduced the original Moto X in August 2013, and the follow-up, the 2014 Moto X in September 2014. This means that the company will most likely unveil the third generation Moto X sometime in the third quarter, in four or five months. That, however, is a long time in tech, but it never stopped the rumor mill's ...

    We all know that higher numbers are better than lower ones, right? But does that same logic apply when we're talking about two high-end mobile processors? The root of the questions falls squarely on LG, and its decision to put the Snapdragon 808 (instead of the 810) inside the flagship LG G4. The LG G Flex 2 uses ...
