    More Marshmallow, more of the time. The clock stands at 106 days — that's three-and-a-half months — since the final images of the first build of Android 6.0 were dropped onto Nexus devices. Motorola gave some encouraging news to Moto G Turbo owners in India today on that front and it looks like we're about to see more Honor phones come online soon along with OnePlus devices. Have an Honor 4X, 6 or 6+? Like Marshmallow, like BETA test?

    While CES 2016 is focused on the new, fresh and up-to-the-minute excitement in electronics, there's always a "new to you" component to it. LG gave us a couple of new mid-range phones for us to talk about here in the US. But LG is also shipping up a relatively old friend to new lands. That old friend is the V10, available in Korea, the US, China and Hong Kong and it soon will be in the UK, according to Pocket-lint. The V10 was initially promised for global distribution, but we don't know of any details from LG about other destinations and any time frames. We don't even know the time frame ...

    In most cases, it wouldn't make sense for a retailer to stop carrying a product it agreed to carry on behalf of its vendor unless the vendor tells the retailer not to. If there's a problem on the retailer side, it'd be tough to find a reason for the vendor to spin the issue. When Amazon Germany announced that it had to withdraw the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL from sales, there was a question about just how many customers were complaining about or returning the device. It's been a week since the take-down occurred and Microsoft has not addressed the issue. Similarly, "Purchase" buttons for the ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has had its praises sung ad nauseam since the reviews of it had dropped. Sure, it might have been a "Galaxy S Big with a Stylus" during its launch, but the features it brought to the table went unmatched by the industry since then. Tough for most of our European readers to have to sit this one out, though. We first got word from a source tied to a Romanian tech blog that Samsung could finally bring the Note 5 to Europe by late January. Android Central confirmed a more general "early 2016" timeline with its sources. We now have a more localized corroboration from ...

    While we mention the spread of Samsung Pay to different devices, Samsung or not, we have to have the territory to use the service in. So far, Samsung has reached deals with banking, retail and cellular network partners in South Korea and the US. We've been promised a further push into other countries like the UK, Spain and China during Samsung's August event. Well, look at that: SamMobile is reporting that we'll see those three countries receive Samsung Pay in Q1 of next year. Same device rules are in play — the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ & the Galaxy Note 5. We don't ...

    The Sony Xperia Z5 is available for purchase at several European retailers right now. And while Sony Europe may have stopped selling its products direct to buyers online, consumers in the continent can still score smartphones, tablets and SmartWear right from the Sony Xperia Store, too. On that note, if you happen to be in that subset of the customer base, we have good news: you can now get the Sony Xperia Z5 for £549 (838 USD as of this post) or €699 (796 USD). Third-party retailers like Amazon.co.uk and Clove Technologies are bundling in Sony brand Bluetooth-connected headset ...

    Contactless payments have grown significantly over the last couple of months. According to the U.K. Cards Association, the figure has more than doubled from £287 million per month in January 2015 to £567 million in June 2015. £2.5 billion in just the first half of the year is a huge improvement over the £2.32 billion for all of 2014, so it only makes sense for companies to work on keeping that growth steady. The U.K. Cards Association has just announced that it’ll be increasing the transaction limit for services like Apple Pay. As of today, contactless payments will have an new limit ...

    Samsung is on to something big with the Galaxy Note 4, and we're not just referring to its size. The device was highly praised by our team as we got some hands-on time with it at IFA in Berlin, and we'll admit it's one of the devices we're anticipating most for this holiday season. If you thought we were the only ones excited, think again, as it seems to be significantly delayed in certain parts of the world. Samsung had committed to have the Galaxy Note 4 arrive to customers in the UK on October 10, but it seems that those plans just got ditched. Samsung Mobile UK has just replied to a ...
