    ZTE hasn't necessarily been a blockbuster hit when it comes to the smartphones it has launched in the US, but that could be intentional. The company has focused on the mid-tier market with devices like the Nubia 5 or the Boost Max that we recently reviewed, and we doubt things will change any time soon after what we saw at ZTE's booth at MWC 2014. That said, the company is interested in growing in the US market, and some new leaks point to something new in the pipeline. Famous tipster @evleaks just landed an interesting tip of a ZTE phablet that's currently being tested on T-Mobile. You'll ...

    One of the biggest issues that we've landed with iPhone review devices over the last couple of years is when the home button loses sensitivity. Some people make it a habit to forget that there is a "power/standby" key and use the home button for this action, and it's a habit that has most-likely grown with Touch ID on the iPhone 5s since it's now easier to unlock your phone through it. Apple hasn't made any statements on the matter, but it seems that the company is planning to improve the design of the Touch ID sensor with the iPhone 6. Images have surfaced of the new Touch ID sensor ...

    Ever since the very first Lumia devices from Nokia, everyone wondered what would happen if these Nokia smartphones ran Android. A Lumia running Android was even more wished for once the Lumia 1020 landed, making everyone wonder how a great camera would do on the market if it was powered by Android, and build by Nokia. Fast forward to today, and we've got a pretty interesting leak (or prediction) from @evleaks. According to the latest bits, a Lumia running Android is incoming, made by "Nokia by Microsoft". This is a great tease for many out there, but unfortunately, it will stay that way ...

    The LG G3 did well in our review, being one of the 2014 Android flagships to want, together with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, and Sony Xperia Z2. However, our review was based on opinions formed while using a South Korean version of the device, with an American carrier unit not being available. That being said, thanks to @evleaks, we're seeing all (major) four US carrier models being leaked in press renders, as seen above. From left to right, we're seeing the upcoming Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions. Interestingly, of all four devices, only Sprint version (as ...

    The Samsung Galaxy F leaked today, in what is claimed to be a real-life picture of the upcoming device. We've heard a lot of rumors and seen a lot of leaks recently regarding the device, but most of them were in the form of leaked press renders. The image above is claimed to be representing the Galaxy F, and you can immediately notice the metal frame around the screen. If you think it resembles the chamfered edges on the iPhone 5/5s, or the HTC One/One M8, you're not wrong. However, the interesting bit comes in the report that accompanies the image. Apparently, according to unnamed sources ...

    Ever since Samsung tested out the waters with its phablet (and the Note line-up quickly became very popular), LG was eager to get in the game as well. The original Optimus VU was unveiled at the 2012 MWC, followed by the VU II post 2012 IFA, and the VU 3 at the end of September 2013. LG's take was different than Samsung's from two main perspectives: the VU phones didn't use a stylus (or pointing device), and adopted a 4:3 aspect ratio for the screen. From what we can deduce from @evleaks' latest tweet, the VU line-up will be replaced (?) by the LG G Stylus. However, if this will indeed be ...

    Now that the Google I/O dust has settled down (just a little bit), we can turn our heads and attention to the main competition: Apple. We're hearing reports talking about the iPhone 6 launch date, and Friday, September 19, 2014, is the date rumored. Apple is expected to unveil a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and apparently there will be no 16GB version; this year, Apple is rumored to only offer 32 and 64GB versions. However, the same way we heard that only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will get OIS features for its camera -- the larger phone being positioned, according to reports, as the premium ...

    The Moto X+1 might, or might not show up at Google I/O (we'll definitely know for sure in less than 12 hours), but the phone was leaked and rumored extensively in the past couple of weeks. What you see above, and below, is allegedly a press render of Motorola's upcoming flagship phone. The Moto X+1 press render leaked today seems to confirm the rumors according to which there might be a front-facing speaker on the device. The report claims that the Moto X+1 has a great chance of being unveiled at this year's Google I/O, together with its front-facing speaker and all, but for now that's ...

    As Google I/O is about to kick off, we're seeing some reports concerning iPhone 6 features that will reportedly be included on Apple's 2014 flagship. There were a lot of reports in the past, with leaks, and images of mock-ups, and the trend seems to be continuing. According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 6 will have optical image stabilization (OIS). However, only the 5.5-inch model is believed to sport OIS VCM (voice coil motor), while the 4.7-inch variant, due to yield rates, is expected to feature a "middle-mount open-loop voice coil motor", an improved version of the the one ...

    The LG G Watch has been in the headlines for quite some time, and, with Google I/O just hours away, we finally get some information on its release date. That, together with another Android Wear smartwatch bit, this time, from Samsung, paints a nice image of when these Google-powered wearables will be released. The LG G Watch has been spotted online on e-tailer websites like MobileFun (in the UK and Australia). It is currently listed with pre-order status, but it will apparently start shipping on July 7. Prices vary from region to region, but are around the €223.99/$255 mark. You can ...

    We're getting closer and closer to the iPhone 6 release date, as there are preparations on both the software and the hardware side. Apple has recently released a second beta of iOS 8, while we recently caught a glimpse of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in a leaked photo. Next month, July, is when mass production of the largest iPhones ever will start, according to a recent report quoting "people familiar with the plans". While there is no exact iPhone 6 release date yet, the sources claim that the smaller of the two, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might ship to retailers around September. As far as the ...

    The Samsung Exynos 5433 was initially mentioned in an early June report, when we heard of the company's plans to skip the 5430, and go with the Exynos 5433 instead. On that exact note, there were rumors claiming that one of the upcoming Note 4 models will indeed run on the Exynos 5433 chip, while another variant, for Samsung's home turf, would be powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC from Qualcomm. Apparently, as you can see in the image above, the Exynos 5433 has been benchmarked by AnTuTu. That, by itself, is not a huge deal, but the fact that it managed to get a higher benchmark score than ...

    The Apple event for devices is still months away, but the iPhone 6 (in both its incarnations, with different screen sizes) has been rumored, and leaked,  numerous times. However, we're yet to see some solid iPad Air leaks, but this one from today might just represent the start of the leaks to come. Call it iPad 6, the New iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or whatever you like, the pictures above and below claim to depict just that: Apple's iPad Air refresh. At a first glance, not much has been changed. The thing that you will immediately spot is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that looks to make its ...

    Just like in previous years, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 4 at this year's IFA in September. Though almost three months away, we're already seeing more and more reports on the upcoming phone. These reports seem to indicate that the upcoming 2014 phablet will have the model number SM-N910. A SM-N910A device popped up both on Samsung's website, in form of a User Agent Profile mention, as well as on India's Zauba, a website tracking import and export activities. The SM-N910A could very well be an upcoming AT&T version of the phablet, meaning that Samsung has started ...

    The last time we've seen this phone was with the occasion of a recent Samsung Galaxy F leak that placed the allegedly metallic phone next to the current Galaxy S 5 flagship. Since we only saw the front of it, we could only guess that it was a black/grey version, pretty much like the one in this leak. However, there was also a white Samsung Galaxy F leak in form of a press render, and now we're seeing another color. Gold, or champagne, call it as you wish. There's really not much info here, and there are few things we can comment upon. The back seems to be brushed metal, or a very good faux ...
