It measures 152x76x8.25mm and weighs 160gr., and Xiaomi is convinced it feels good in the hand. There are two versions of the Xiaomi Redmi Note ...

    Before you become too happy or excited, we need to warn you to keep skeptical about this. There's no way in telling whether the device pictured above is indeed a Galaxy Note 5 variant, as claimed, or another Samsung phone. That being said, here's the takeaway, as suggested by the report: a dual SIM variant of the ...

    The S Pen is one of the defining features of Samsung's tremendously popular Galaxy Note series. Along with the characteristically large display, it's what gives the line its name, and though not every owner of a Note uses the S Pen, for some people it's an invaluable tool that makes other phones feel almost unusable by ...

And if Samsung's own teasers weren't enough to convince you that those two devices will premiere on-stage at tomorrow's Unpacked event, not to mention the weeks and weeks of leaks and rumors zeroing in on the company’s launch plans, ...

    HTC makes beautiful products. Historically, the company was selected by HP and Compaq (among others) to build the hardware that carried their corporate brands for years. Since then, HTC has tried to break into the market as its own brand - and has done remarkably well. When you think of smartphone brands, HTC ranks up ...

    Last week, one of the most interesting leaks related to Google's plans for upcoming Nexus phones passed across our desk, purporting to offer a brief hands-on look at the Huawei-made Nexus phablet we've heard rumored so often. The handset featured a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and appeared to have the name Poseidon ...

    Just about one month ago, HTC revealed its latest batch of affordable desire-series smartphones, the Desire 520, Desire 526, Desire 626, and Desire 626S. The manufacturer promised plenty of carrier support for the group, and named half a dozen carriers that would soon find these models operating on their networks, but a ...

So far we heard rumors of a China event for the announcement of the Honor 7i on August 20, but we also knew that the company would not let IFA pass its radar either.

    Most of us still consider 2K displays to be overkill, but in the case of phablets, that's not necessarily the case. Sony has been a little late in supporting QHD displays, even if it was one of the first companies to support 1080p back in the day. Now that we know that the company is committed to its Xperia lineup, it's ...

    A year ago we saw Samsung debut a device with an auxiliary curved display. The Galaxy Note Edge, along with the S6 edge that followed it intrigued many technology enthusiasts and regular people alike. Devices with curved displays on the side in a sea of rectangular cookie cutter devices are definitely refreshing, but I ...

While it noted that the “Moto X Style will be available in countries across Europe, Latin America and North America starting in September,” that still left ...

    Back when Motorola released the first Moto G in 2013, we were taken aback by how nice a smartphone could really be for under $200. Since then, it seems like nearly every OEM has tried its hand at the "premium midranger" business model, cramming the best specs and most compelling software into as inexpensive of a ...

    Google sure sounds like it might break from tradition this year and bring us not one, but two Nexus phones. And as is only fitting for a pair of Nexus handsets, Google may just turn to a pair of manufacturers to build the phones, with rumors zeroing-in on LG and Huawei. There have been no shortage of leaks attempting to ...

    Remember when the first Galaxy Note was announced to the world? Samsung took to the stage at its annual Unpacked event back in 2011, and showed off a big honking device with a 5.2" display and a stylus, and it was one of the most bizarre smartphones we'd ever seen. Hell, it even created a new category of smartphone ...

    One of the biggest changes to the smartphone scene in 2015 has been a dramatic rise in the quality of budget to midrange smartphones, as OEMs race to capitalize on the huge market of users who simply want a reliable phone without having to drop $700+, or sign a contract with their carrier. As phones like the Idol 3, ...

    While there was a cornucopia of leaks and reports dealing with the internals of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, there was little we heard about the batteries inside these phablets, aside from the fact that most reports claim these will be non-user-replaceable/removable. That changes now, as ...

    Achievements with caveats come quite often in this industry. While not on Apple levels of spectacular, these numbers do look good, though. For comparison, Xiaomi, which kicked into life in 2011, sold 400,000 units on its first year in the market. Meizu's first smartphone effort rendered 600,000 sales in 2009. Heck, it ...

    The slow roll towards the debut of Windows 10 Mobile continues as the last preview build before final release is out. Or at least, what we think will be the final preview build. Application development for Windows Phone 8.1 has all but stood still for obvious reasons. Yet, each day that Microsoft isn't updating its ...

    There's a clear migration being tracked from bought-and-owned media toward the current streaming models we have. Portability and unlimited variety beat out CDs (as well as smartphones, of course).
