    For its first iPhone endeavor above four inches on the diagonal, Apple went big. It today has the iPhone 6 Plus, what looks to be a direct jab at Samsung's phablet counterpart, the Galaxy Note 4. So now that these two rivals are hitting each other hard in this big-screened arena as well, we thought it proper that we compare and contrast the specs of the two in an Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs comparison. Without a doubt it's the Android that wins the spec battle here, but that doesn't mean the iPhone didn't perform commendably in our chart. In fact, it bested the Note ...

    At about this time of year every year, we're faced with the same situation. Apple has just gone official with a new iPhone (two new iPhones, this time), and in that process discounted the pricing of the last-gen models. So is it worth skipping on the upgrades and grabbing a cheaper phone instead? Let's have a look in our Apple iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5s comparison chart. The good thing is, unlike what happened with Sony's flagship Xperia line, nothing has got worse between generations. And there's a commendable set of upgrades, too – it's more than clear that this isn't just an incremental ...

    The Moto G was Motorola's best-selling device in company history, and that was for one simple reason: it offered reasonable specs for a reasonable price, and people loved that. But can the new Moto G follow in the footsteps, and fill the shoes of its older brother behemoth? Let's find out in our specs comparison between the new Moto G vs Moto G (the old one). First of all, the screen is bigger on the new G, but that equals a sacrifice in pixel density. At this kind of pixel density, it's possible for the human eye to make out individual pixels if you're close enough to your phone, so that ...

    If you've seen our coverage so far of the new Moto X, then you know that it's quite a leap over the original Moto X in terms of specs. While the general premise is the same – a snappy phone that does what you'd like without a hitch, while also making life just a little bit easier to bear – the specs have certainly improved. Let's check it all out in our spec comparison between the new Moto X vs Moto X, right down below. Motorola has gone all-out here, letting the new Moto X best the old one in almost every single category on our chart. The screen is more pixel dense on the new Moto X, ...

    When the Moto X came out last year, many shamed it for not featuring high-end specs like the other flagships in town. While phones like the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 were rocking quad-core Snapdragon 600 processors, the Moto X was using an X8 Mobile Computing System based off of a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. You'd think it'd be the same story here, when we round up the new Moto X specs, but these results are actually remarkably surprising – the next-gen Moto X features high-end internals about on par with close competition like the HTC One M8, so we're excited to see where the ...

    A lot of you are probably wondering how much power Motorola was able to cram into its new budget midranger, so we decided to compose a list of the new Moto G specs in order to please you. Below is a full list of the specs of the phone, some of which are quite surprising considering the phone's pricing – the camera's quite decent for this price range, and the processor (as we've seen on many midrangers thus far) is no slouch. Combine all of that with Motorola's buttery smooth operating system, and you've got a winner on your hands. In case you haven't already learned about the new Moto G, ...

    Though its use is primarily for selfies, as Microsoft would like you to think, is the Nokia Lumia 735 good for anything else?

    It's gone official, we've gone through its spec list, and we've compared it to its older sibling (the Lumia 930). Now its time for a second comparison, except this time to the king of all cameraphones: the Nokia Lumia 1020. Let's check out the differences in a full Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 spec battle down below. It's not a total kill like what happened when we compared the Lumia 830 to the Lumia 930, but that's probably because the Lumia 1020 is starting to show its age a bit. The Lumia 1020 has a screen with a higher pixel density, though it loses out when it comes to the ...

    Now that the Nokia Lumia 830 is official as a supposed high-end smartphone for a low-end price, it's time to start comparing it to phones we already have recognized as true flagships in our full reviews. First up on our list of comparisons, the Lumia 930 / Icon, which we reviewed and called the best Windows Phones to date at the time. Now it's time to compare the battle-worn soldier to the new kid on the block, in Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 930 / Icon. This result is disappointing, but most definitely an expected outcome. The Lumia 830 loses out in everything, so if you have the extra ...

    It's supposedly one of the first affordable flagships, but is it really a flagship in the first place? We decided to tackle that question by rounding up a list of official specs for the Nokia Lumia 830, and looking at it under the lens to see how well this Windows Phone will theoretically perform. The answer, in our full Nokia Lumia 830 specs list below. IFA 2014 is certainly not over, so you can check out our continuing coverage of the Berlin trade show right over at this link. For more on the Nokia Lumia 830 (and trust us, there will be many more posts coming along), this link should ...

    Two of the hottest phones this year are Sony's Xperia Z3 and HTC's One M8. We've had a chance to give the latter the full Pocketnow review treatment, but the second one has just been announced – we'd still like to compare them though, so what better way to set up a Sony Xperia Z3 vs HTC One M8 throwdown than a specs comparison? It turns out, there are a good amount of differences between the two phones. The One M8 has a more pixel-dense screen, though it loses out in the processor department in the same way that the Xperia Z2 did. The Z3 also has more RAM than the One M8, and a ...

    HTC has just gone official with the Desire 820, so it's time to look inside what claims to be the heir to the Desire 816's throne. Can it stack up on paper? We've laid the full list of specs out for you down below in a complete HTC Desire 820 specs list. The Desire 820 has seen bumps up in what look to be all the right places, but we can't give you the final word on that until HTC lends us a review unit and we can put it to the test in our labs. Stay tuned for hands-on coverage of this phone and other IFA announcements throughout the course of the day, and be sure to check in with all of ...

    When the Sony Xperia Z3 went official yesterday, many didn't quite realize how similar it was to the Z2 – Sony's last flagship phone, which was announced just a few months back. As it turns out, these phones are more than just a little similar, but are almost identical on paper. Some things have even become worse across the generation leap, which is disappointing, but let's take a look at the full picture in our Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z2 specs comparison chart below. There are only two categories in our specs list where the two phones differentiate from each other: processor ...

    The day many of you (and us) have been waiting for has arrived. Samsung has finally unveiled its second flagship for 2014, the Galaxy Note 4 phablet. As it has historically done so in the past, the Unpacked event happened a tad earlier, before the official start of the International Radio Show in Berlin. Those waiting to see a brand new design will be slightly disappointed, while those who preferred the looks of the Note 3 (and previous models), will be happy that there aren't any major changes. You'll have to check out the Galaxy Note Edge for that. However, we're here to look at the ...
