    Samsung's never been a company to approach its mobile lineup from a “less is more” perspective, and year after year we continue to see it inundate retail shelves with more products than the manufacturer arguably knows what to do with. As if Samsung didn't have enough tablet offerings already, earlier this year we ...

    When we're checking out leaked pics of unreleased smartphone hardware, we've got to accept the good with the bad. For as much as we might like every image to be a nice, clean, high-res official product render, all too often we find ourselves dealing with low-quality shots, awkward angles, dodgy cropping, and worse – ...

    Fortunes have a funny way of shifting in the smartphone market, and yesterday's popular manufacturer could well find itself the subject of tomorrow's bankruptcy sale. HTC sounds like its luck has taken a dive in recent months, so when reports surfaced late last week that ASUS had been thinking about acquiring the firm, ...

    At WWDC, Apple introduced a host of new features to iOS 9, including its new Proactive feature. This is a very Google Now-like service that will give contextually aware reminders, take actions without prompting, anticipate what you want, etc. This is all a really nice upgrade for the iOS experience. And if Apple had ...

    I’m a Windows Phone fan who has been on Android for about nine months now. Ever since I got the Moto360, then the Pebble, I have been pretty much addicted to smartwatches, and Windows Phone just doesn’t have them. Ok, it has the Band, but I don’t really count that. So I’m left with Android. But I don’t want ...

    It feels like every day that another Android phone is announced with the ability to shoot 4K video, or slow-mo video, or stabilized video with OIS. This is all fine and dandy, but what are you supposed to do with all of these fancy video clips you shoot? Sure, you can import your clips onto your computer to edit them in ...

    A little while ago, I powered up my first smartphone for the first time in a very long time. It’s the infamous and now forgotten Optimus 2X. It’s quite old and frankly ancient by mobile tech standards- it was first released back in 2010 and I’ve had mine since 2011. But there’s something about my three years of ...

    I recently wrote a piece on the things I'd still like for iOS to do before I'm ready to fully commit and move from my One M9 to an iPhone. Most of those things were features I'd essentially just like to see ported over from Android, but if that's the case, why wouldn't I just stick with what I have? I mean, if Android ...

    Sony's Xperia Z4 has only just started hitting stores in Japan, and while it may be a very cool-looking smartphone, it sure doesn't sound like a cool-running handset; early reports have pegged the Z4 as falling into the old Snapdragon 810-overheating trap, with operating temperatures pushing 150F and retailers posting ...

Or, you could say the ASUS ZenFone 2 is a mediocre device that's trying too hard to be the best in the lower end market. Or, the ASUS ZenFone 2 sounds kinda like the other ...

    It's no secret that lately HTC isn't doing extremely well financially. Despite the HTC One M9 being a flagship smartphone in every sense of the word, the market didn't seem to react positively to its arrival.
