    Honor and its parent company Huawei are keeping up the counter this season with the former bringing down the price on some hardcore mobile hardware. Take the Huawei GX8 and the Honor 5X — both pretty much the same phone, but the GX8 cost $150 more than the 5X. So, hot off the heels of the Huawei P9's launch with its dual-camera module, we're looking forward to the Honor V8 and its own identical 12-megapixel dual-camera system. We're not sure where the name gets off being of LG's ilk. But we do have some road narrowing to do before the May 10 launch date. The display will come up to 5.5 ...

    Following last year's success of the Nexus 6P, Huawei's a brand a lot more smartphone shoppers have started paying attention to. And for 2016, the manufacturer seems plenty up to the task of delivering some hardware worthy of our attention, most recently with today's launch of the P9 and P9 Plus. In a world where rumors of a dual-camera iPhone 7 Plus suggest that only the larger of Apple's next flagships will end up with an extra shooter, it's refreshing to see that Huawei's making no such distinction here: you can choose the smaller, more affordable P9 or the larger, somewhat more premium ...

    Ask, and ye shall receive; ever since Apple pushed its smartphone lineup into larger new territory with the iPhone 6, a certain subset of users has been clamoring for the return of a new four-inch option. And while the last couple years brought us nothing but more 4.7 and 5.5-inch models, hope persisted that one day Apple might deliver another handset that would combine cutting edge specs with a petite, pocket-friendly body. But to hear the majority of rumors as of just a few months ago, would the iPhone's return to the four-inch space see it compromise on specs? Would Apple cripple the ...

    We introduced you to the NuAns Neo at CES 2016. It's a Windows 10 Mobile phone that sports Qualcomm's Snapdragon 617 system-on-a-chip and is able to run Continuum, Microsoft's protocol for extending a phone's horsepower onto a desktop space. Thing is, Microsoft didn't acknowledge this fact in its minimum specifications for Continuum up until now. Plop down to Microsoft's Hardware Dev Center today and you'll get an updated page with new minimum requisites looking form-fit to the Neo. The Snapdragon 617 is now among the 808 and 810 as being Continuum-supported processors. 2GB of RAM is ...

    The OPPO Find 9 is on hold, so what better placeholder to have this half-year than the OPPO R7s? We have it in-house for a review, just like we had the OPPO R7. Oh yeah, and the R7 Plus. We reviewed that, too. Notice some themes going on here? It seems that the company's going for the complete Apple as we see the OPPO R7s Plus pass through Chinese certification with the requisite pictures and limited specs. Here are the details from TENAA: [table] Component,Description Screen size,6 inches Display type,AMOLED Resolution,1920 x 1080 Pixel density,367 ppi Processor,Octa-core Speed,1.5GHz ...

    Huawei likes its Mates big. From the Ascend Mate 2 4G LTE to the Ascend Mate 7, the Chinese manufacturer seems to be in love with half-foot screens for its powerhouse devices. The Mate S took things down a step to 5.5 inches as it was launched ahead of the iPhone 6s Plus. But things look to be back in the swing of six as a GFXBench index card pops up for the heavily-anticipated Huawei Mate 8. Lots of stand-out specs here, including a theoretical 64GB storage option, 4GB of RAM, and the odd camera sensor resolutions. The company also seems comfortable to keep the six-inch 1080p display ...

    We've been hitting the regulators pretty heavy for some device details during this stretch of the day. In addition to ZTE and Samsung, you can now add OnePlus's latest device onto the queue at the Telecommunication Equipment's Network Access Managements certification pile. The aesthetics of the "ONE E1001" (final name pending, but likely to be the OnePlus X) have definitely branched off from OnePlus's two previous phones. The edge-job in particular looks similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3's siderails. But beyond the pictures are the numbers: [table] Component,Description Screen ...

    In addition to pull the covers off of LG's Nexus 5X, Google made official its Nexus phablet entry for the year, the Nexus 6P. It's built by Huawei and certainly packs the innards to be a 2015 flagship. From its weirdo headpiece on the back containing its camera to the full body metal trim, this thing's definitely a looker — for good or bad reason. But with the size and specs come a premium — the 32GB storage option comes in at $499, 64GB will cost you $549 and the 128GB model comes in at $599. It definitely costs less than comparable flagships from Apple and Samsung. But where does all ...

    Google has shut off the water to the leaky faucet with its announcement of the Nexus 5X, manufactured by LG. It was announced alongside the Huawei-made Nexus 6P. The 5X has been characterized as the little sibling of the pair with some decent specs (if only a bit stale) at a price range that's been getting all the spotlight as of late with the OnePlus 2, the Moto X Pure Edition and the ZTE Axon Pro, along with other smartphones. But does the Nexus 5X's value weigh out in your favor? It's $379 for the 16GB option and $429 for 32GB of storage. The rest of the deets are down below: Nexus 5X ...

    Lately the trend of premium flagships has become some what of a norm. We see companies like Apple, HTC and Samsung launching an extra flagship with a few extra tricks up its sleeve, even though in most cases this is just phablet size. Sony has decided to do away with the whole "Plus" concept, and has decided to introduce a new Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. No, this is not just a larger version of the Xperia Z5, but instead a more feature packed device. We could bore you with the details on the spec sheet down bellow, so let's just say this phone "had us at 4K display." [table] ...

    Even though Sony has spent the last few months disappointing many with the way it handled its Xperia Z4 launch, it seems the Japanese giant is out to fix that. The company not only confirmed that it cares deeply about its Xperia brand, but it has managed to prove that today with the launch of the Sony Xperia Z5 Series. We know many of you are very interested in getting details on just how powerful these phones are, so here's the rundown for the flagship, Sony Xperia Z5.

    The ASUS ZenFone 2 is the best smartphone in the company's lineup right now, and arguably, one of the boldest smartphones in the mid-range market. 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 phones I talked about just now, but somewhere in between. Well, I can say that the ASUS ZenFone 2 is actually all of the above. Our Editorial Director Michael Fisher debated the merits of choosing one of two ZenFones 2 (that is the correct way to execute that plurality, ...

    The yearly cycle is repeating itself: one flagship is a year old, its replacement brand new. Just what has one year brought us in terms of specs, though? Has the rate of innovation slowed, or are smartphone internals becoming exponentially better with each generation? If it's the newly-announced LG G4 you're wondering about, we've got you covered with an LG G4 vs G3 specs comparison, right down below in chart form. Unsurprisingly, not a whole lot has changed; the G3 was a remarkable phone, and we regarded it as such when heading through the review process with it last year. The ...

    LG's G4 just went official, the company's latest Android to take up the G-series name. And as such a flagship model, it's inevitable that we'll be putting the phone's specs under the microscope. With the G4, LG made the somewhat controversial decision not to go with the Snapdragon 810 that powers the HTC One M9, and even the LG G Flex 2 before it, and instead to only outfit the handset with the hexa-core Snapdragon 808. LG claims that the 808 was really the best fit for the phone, but will its performance measure up to its competition? As we wait to give the G4 our full review treatment, ...

    Huawei just introduced its latest flagship, the slim, powerfully equipped P8 (no more Ascend). With a sleek metal build and an emphasis on camera performance, Huawei's hoping the P8 has what it takes to compete against other spring heavyweights like the Galaxy S6 and One M9. And over the next few months, a ton of factors will end up helping to determine the P8's fortunes, from promotion, to pricing, to simple availability. As we wait to see how those all will play out, there's one set of data we can immediately start using to compare the P8 to some of its peers: its hardware components. ...

    The next curved-screen Samsung smartphone is here, arriving arm-in-arm with the Galaxy S6. Much like the relationship we saw between the Galaxy Note 4 and the Note Edge, the GS6 and GS6 Edge share the bulk of their hardware - but not everything. We just went over with you the finer points of the Galaxy S6, and now we turn our magnifying glass on the phone's edge variant, looking at places like battery capacity where the Galaxy S6 Edge decides to do things a little differently.

    Samsung's Unpacked MWC event is just wrapping up, introducing us to the company's hottest new hardware. And to the surprise of no one at all, that means getting our first (official) shot at seeing the Galaxy S6. Expectations for the flagship couldn't be higher, and Samsung intends to deliver with some cutting-edge specs.

    HTC's leading off the big MWC 2015 announcements with its One M9, just made official at the company's press event. Over the past few weeks we've looked at a number of conflicting theories on what the phone would bring us, so if you found yourself getting too attached to one of the concept designs that failed to pan out, today's news might seem like a bit of a let-down. That needn't be the case, because the One M9 HTC ultimately delivered turns out to be a pretty capable-sounding powerhouse in its own right. Let's take a look at just what went into building this handset: HTC One M9 specs ...

    When you have a device as gorgeous as LG's Watch Urbane, you better have the internals to make up for it. So does LG follow through with powerful specs in the delivery of its latest Android Wear smartwatch? Our comprehensive LG Watch Urbane specs list well help you make a decision. On paper, the device is actually quite similar to its predecessor-of-sorts, the G Watch R (the specs of that watch are available here). Most of the improvements come in the body of the device itself, which, while being slightly disappointing, isn't really a bad thing considering we didn't have much trouble at ...

    Aesthetically, the LG G Flex 2 may be quite similar to its predecessor (the original G Flex), but on paper, it's difficult for two phones to be more different. It's amazing just how much LG has advanced its technology in a bit over one short year, and it's equally amazing that the original G Flex manages to beat out the sequel in a few areas as well. Find out about it all in our LG G Flex 2 vs LG G Flex specs comparison chart. There's only one real win for the first G Flex – the clock speed dip doesn't really matter, as the core changes make that an issue of apples and oranges – and ...

    We've already explored in an initial comparison video what the differences between the LG G Flex 2 and LG G3 are in everyday usability, but what are the cold hard facts? On paper, which is the better phone? That's what this LG G Flex 2 vs LG G3 specs comparison looks to decide. Unsurprisingly, the newer phone comes out on top, with four spec wins to the G3's two. But the G3 does earn those two – this isn't exactly a runaway victory. One of those two G3 victories is the display, and that one's easy to explain; the G Flex 2 has to sacrifice display performance for the curve, as it uses ...

    LG is known these days for launching phones with the latest and greatest specs – it was one of the first to hop onto the 2K display and the Snapdragon 800 bandwagons among others, and generally stacks its devices with ample muscle. The newly-announced G Flex 2 is no exception, packing incredible specs to say the least. We've compiled together in one place a full list of LG G Flex 2 specs right here, so you can see just how good the phone looks on paper. The G Flex 2 is one of the first phones with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit SoC, and also has cutting-edge screen technology ...

    Nokia had been teasing some sort launch for today, but when it revealed the N1 Android tablet just a little earlier this morning, the news was still a bit of a surprise. After all, Nokia's whole X-series Android experiment looked like it was over, but while Android smartphones may be one thing, Android tablets are clearly another. With a 4:3 display in a 2048 x 1536 resolution and a 64-bit SoC, the Nokia N1 is bound to draw comparisons to tablets like the Apple iPad Air 2/mini 3 and the Nexus 9, but what's the full picture here? Just what kind of hardware makes up this unexpected Nokia ...

    Sure, it may be affordable, but that doesn't necessarily constitute purchasing a Lumia 535 – or does it? Our list of Microsoft Lumia 535 specs, painstakingly compiled for your pleasure right over here, will help you out with that decision. Yes, the Lumia 535 is midrange. Some may even venture to call it low-end, and its price reflects that, but the specs aren't entirely down the drain here as you might expect.

    Samsung, with the launch of new Galaxy A-series smartphones, may be getting serious in the premium-built smartphone race, but how do the phones themselves stack up? We've got in this post a thorough look at the Samsung Galaxy A5 specs, to help you decide if Samsung's next is worth the buy... or a pass. Overall, the phone is pretty mid-range by today's standards, but it holds its own and shouldn't be too terrible a performer. The price point is also expected to be fairly competitive, so it'll likely have that going for it, and the package itself sure looks great. Share your thoughts with ...
