    If you can’t decide between the new Nexus and the new iPad, you’re probably hung up on one of two factors: ecosystem or price. Nothing we say here will change the fact that the Nexus 9 is about $100 cheaper, and if you’re already invested in Apple’s or Android’s walled garden, the decision is already made based on which smartphone you’re carrying. Probably. But if you’re thinking about jumping platforms, or this will be your first tablet, there are a few differences worth discussing. Those differences span hardware, software and day-to-day performance – and the end ...

    LG G Watch R vs Moto 360. As far as Android Wear videos go, it's our most-requested comparison of 2014 – and a week after unboxing the G Watch R, we've finally gotten around to it as promised. They’re two of the only round-faced smartwatches you can find today, and there’s only a $50 difference between them. But despite their surface similarities and near-identical software, these Android wearables are targeted at two totally different types of customer. The G Watch R is a P-OLED packing powerhouse of a smartwatch, with a Snapdragon 400 under the hood protected by a rugged ...

    There's no denying that Oppo has done an amazing job this year with its product launches. The Oppo Find 7 and the Find 7a made a ton of positive headlines due to the spec package that you received on a very decent price tag. The same can also be said about the Oppo N3, which takes the legacy of the N1 and pushes technology many steps further. If you're on the ropes wondering which of these devices is right for you, you've come to the right place. Watch our quick show floor comparison o the Oppo N3 vs the Oppo Find 7a. It's amazing how similar these two smartphones are, and then how ...

    If one of the best selling smartphones in the world has only gotten more popular as it slims itself down, then there must be a market that really cares about this. Oppo has seen this over the last couple of years with its R lineup, and after the success of the R3 earlier this year, the new Oppo R5 takes slimness to a whole new level. We've still got more coverage coming to you from Singapore, and in this next video, we intend to give you a quick idea of what it's like to hold the Oppo R5 beside its nearest competitor, the iPhone 6. You might think that the Oppo R5 is too thin and easily ...

    Just as happened last year, Motorola has two great phones available now on Verizon Wireless. The newly-announced DROID Turbo and Moto X both have their ups and downs, but which is the better overall pick for you to spend your hard-earned dollars on? Our DROID Turbo vs Moto X 2014 comparison video, embedded down below, will help you make the decision. On paper, there's a pretty vast difference here – the camera's megapixel count on the DROID Turbo smokes that of the Moto X, the Turbo's processor is considerably more powerful, its display is superior as far as pixel density is concerned, ...

    Every six months, Samsung drops another contender into the bloody phablet-vs-flagship slugfest. This contest is one of Samsung's own making, a result of alternating annual Galaxy S installments with annual Galaxy Note upgrades in the spring and fall of each year. With each new chapter, two things are guaranteed: there will be much indecision among buyers as to which is the better buy, and much confusion in the comments about which comparisons are and aren't worth doing. For the former group –the cash-flush consumers biting their nails and wondering which of these high-end superphones to ...

    With all the news about Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google's flagship tablet (the Nexus 9), and Apple's updated iPads, it might be easy for some to forget that those aren't the only tablets available these days. Google's recent "Be together. Not the same." ad campaign illustrates what I'm talking about. If you're in the States and want a Nexus 9 you can head over to the Play Store and pre-order one that will ship by November 3rd. If you're not in the States, if the Nexus 9 is too big, or if you're looking for something a little different, there are some other tablets that you might want to ...

    Last year's Galaxy Note 3 scored high marks in our original review and our After The Buzz followup, but it lacked the aspirational spirit of its progenitors. Whereas the first Note was a wildly (and unexpectedly) successful experiment and the second was a bold "consumerization" of that idea, the Note 3 appeared somewhat dull by comparison. Sure, in the moment, we loved it: it packed great specs and it played an important role in breaking Samsung of its hyperglaze addiction – but in retrospect, its flimsy build and fast-aging software seem more than a little underwhelming. Those are ...

    If I had my way, that headline above would go like this: "Unlikely mutant success meets when-pigs-fly Hail Mary in acid-fueled crazytown showdown." So maybe it's good that I don't have my way (this time). Put more plainly: this is a comparison I never thought I'd have the opportunity to do. If you'd told me, back in 2011, that Samsung's freakazoid phone-tablet hybrid would enjoy enough success to spawn three sequels (and galvanize an entirely new smartphone category in the process), I'd have called you a crazy person. And I'd have called you much worse if you tried to convince me that ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S5, while not a showstopper or ground-breaking piece of hardware, is a great smartphone, designed to appeal to a very large demographic. However, its size is simply too large for some. What if there were a device with almost the exact same specifications in a smaller package? Would that phone be as good – or even better – than the Galaxy S5? That phone does exist but, unsurprisingly, it isn't made by Samsung. Instead, Sony makes it, and it's the smaller version of its newest hero device, the Xperia Z3. It's called the Xperia Z3 Compact and it's nearly a spec for ...

    In terms of size alone, it would stand to reason the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is a better match for HTC's One mini 2 and the full-sized Xperia Z3 is better suited for a comparison with the One M8. The latter may still be true, but the Xperia Z3 Compact is actually strikingly similar to the One M8, at least on the inside. Both phones have front-firing audio, similar chipsets, the same RAM, similar storage options, the same battery capacity, and most of the same connectivity options. The One M8 does have infrared and the Z3 Compact has water resistance not found on the One M8. Otherwise, it's ...

    Two of the best cameraphones out there. Two of the best-designed phones out there (though our own Michael Fisher would like to disagree). How do the HTC Desire EYE and Apple iPhone 6 / 6 Plus compare as far as there internals go, though? That's something our HTC Desire EYE vs iPhone 6 / 6 Plus specs comparison does a fine job of answering. Apple generally hasn't been known to include the highest-end specs in any of its mobile offerings, and that's largely due to the immense hardware/software optimization performed by the company. But, with that warning aside, for the sake of science, ...

    On the surface, it may seem like the HTC Desire EYE and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are entirely different beasts, but as it turns out... never mind, this really is no contest. We try to find just how large a spec gap lies between the two phones in our HTC Desire EYE vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs comparison, right down below. Let us begin by first stating that there is only one category where the Desire EYE beats out the Note 4, and that's also the most obvious one: the front-facing camera. Seeing as though HTC's shoved a 13MP BSI sensor and dual-LED flash in the front of the Desire EYE, ...

    Weirdly enough, HTC's Desire EYE isn't your average Desire family member in the same way a device like the Desire 610 or Desire 816 is: it also brings along with it pretty premium specs. Just how good are those specs, though, when compared to HTC's metal-clad flagship, the One M8? We're here to find out, in our full HTC Desire EYE vs HTC One M8 specs comparison. It isn't an all-out win for either side, but it is clear which is the flagship here. The One M8 scoops up four wins total in our spec categories below, while the Desire EYE pics up a mere two – both being because of the ...

    There is a time when comparisons get tough. Yes, believe it or not, there are cases where we compare two great phones and find it hard to decide on a winner. On one hand we have Apple’s latest iPhone, which has gained the praise of most of our editorial team, and on the other hand we have the LG G3, considered by most to be the ultimate powerhouse. Would it be fair to declare a winner in the case of two devices that were clearly designed with different users in mind? Would it also be fair to declare both devices as winners when their differences are so substantial? Make sure you watch ...
