    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. Here's exactly what you can look forward to: Samsung Galaxy S6 specs [table] Component,Description Screen size,5.1 inches Screen type,Super AMOLED Resolution,2560x1440 (Quad HD) Pixel density,577 ppi SoC,Exynos 7 Octa Type,Octa-core Speed,Quad 2.1GHz + Quad 1.5Ghz ...

    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. Read on, and you may actually be surprised at how much utility 110 euros can net you. Happy or not about this phone, let us know your thoughts in the comments after going through ...

    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 ...

    Reading the name "Oppo R5" might bring into your mind the thought "just another midrange option." And that's only partially true – with a careful examination of the specs of the R5, it becomes clear that this actually isn't just a new mid-range offering, but instead a flagship in its own right (what is a flagship, anyway?)... or is it? We'll answer that question when we put the Oppo R5 through its paces for a full written and video review on the site, but in the meantime, we've got a list of Oppo R5 for you to read and ponder after you're done sifting through our other coverage of the ...

    So the Oppo N3 has gone official, but you need a set of A-grade specifications to push you over the edge and grab this phone. Don't worry, we've got you covered, with a full list of Oppo N3 specs at your disposal right down below! Sure, the N3 might not stack up just as well as the Galaxy Note 4 or DROID Turbo, but it certainly doesn't have second-rate specs. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor is just as powerful as it was a few short months ago, and the other specs all allow for ample power. We'll reserve judgment for until we get our hands on a review unit, but right now, things ...

    With all the leaks we'd seen over the months leading up to today's Droid Turbo launch event, much of the phone's high-end hardware had already been spoiled for us, but when those specs include features like a big 21MP camera and beefy 3900mAh battery, we suppose we don't mind a few early peeks. Today, with Verizon and Motorola formally announcing the phone, the rest of the handset's hardware has finally been confirmed, and they're of similar top-tier quality, from the very capable 3GB of RAM to the sizable 64GB storage option. Let's take a moment to go over the full set of Droid Turbo ...

    It's easy to look at today's iPad mini 3 announcement and come away wanting a little more: a newer SoC, perhaps, or something beyond Touch ID to make it stand out a little better from last year's iPad mini with Retina display. For now, though, it still represents the pinnacle of Apple's shrunken-down tablet lineup, and likely will for the year to come - so we'd better start getting familiar with. If you're already intimately acquainted with last year's iPad mini specs, this is going to sound a little like a broken record, but for those of you new to the party, read on to get a taste for ...

    Of Apple's two new tablets debuting at today's launch event, the iPad Air 2 is easily the more capable of the pair. With a new SoC at its core, the Air 2 represents the next generation of Apple's iOS hardware. But there's so much more than just a speedy processor and GPU that make this tablet the attractive slate it is - especially that extremely thin 6.1mm-thick build. Let's take a look at the full picture of components that make up Apple's latest tablet flagship: iPad Air 2 specs [table] Component,Description Screen size,9.7 inches Screen type,LCD with fully laminated construction and ...

    The Nexus 6 is finally here, and it is one big ol' Android. It weighs 41 percent more than the Nexus 5 while growing its screen out to nearly six inches - and that's not a change that everyone's going to love. But if you can get past the larger size (not to mention larger sticker price), there's a ton of killer hardware waiting for you here. Let's take a look at just what variety of flagship-level components go into making up this first Nexus smartphone effort from Motorola.

    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 ...

    You'd think that, with the "Desire" branding, HTC's Desire EYE would just be yet another entry into the company's midrange portfolio, and you wouldn't be straying afar from the logical conclusion, either. But you couldn't be further from the truth; make no mistake, HTC's selfie phone has quite the guts. Just what exactly powers the phone, though? That's a question best answered by our full HTC Desire EYE specs list, below. HTC Desire EYE specs [table] Component,Description Screen size,5.2 inches Screen type,LCD Resolution,1920x1080 (Full HD) Pixel density,423.64 ppi SoC,Qualcomm Snapdragon ...

    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 ...
