    Smartphone thefts are a real thing. Smartphones are valuable, even ones with broken screens or older models.

    Historically it's always been a pain to unlock your smartphone without having to cough a little cash, or without having to beg your carrier to do so with some traveling excuse. AT&T and T-Mobile phones have always been the ideal for this, and now that both Verizon and Sprint smartphones support LTE, and therefore ...

    We recently heard that Samsung would ask Google for some help in sending some of its founding Android engineers to take part in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, to which Google agreed. It's only fair that Google participated in helping Samsung fix these issues since some of these patent claims have mainly to do with ...

    Smartphone audio quality is better now that it's ever been before. We've got handsets capable of 24-bit, 192kHz output like the LG G2, and models with beefy front-facing speakers like HTC and all its BoomSound models. Sometimes, though, you really need a proper external speaker to really appreciate the sound your phone ...

    Mobile devices used to be primarily portable email boxes with integrated calendar and contacts. In the early days, some of them may have included web browsers, but they were very primitive. Back then the Web was very complex, and designed for screens with resolutions of 800 by 600 and higher. To accommodate phones and ...

    It’s funny. Steve Jobs always used to talk about giving the people what they want before they knew they wanted it. In my experience with mobile technology, nothing has proven this concept more than voice control. It started with Windows Mobile voice control years ago. It came to the mainstream with Siri a few ...

    Even though rumors continue of Apple building two models of the iPhone 6, a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model, we continue hearing that Apple won't be able to launch both models at the same time. We've almost lost hope for a 4.7-inch model launching at WWDC in June, and instead we're expecting it to launch for the ...

    Smartphone manufacturers have turned it up to 11 this year. For many, it's do or die. Take HTC for example. Its sales, revenues, market share, and mind share have all been consistently dwindling over the last several years.

We're just a few months away from the possible launch of iOS 8 to the public, but many of those that were running iOS 7 still considered it unfinished. Plagued with many bugs, or app ...

    Even though many complain that playing a game on the iPhone's minuscule 4-inch display is cumbersome, that doesn't change the fact that people use the iPhone and iPod Touch for gaming quite often.
