Recent rumors limited the Galaxy A90's launch to China for a limited time, but here's a reminder: it's coming to Europe.
Samsung is bolstering its "Premium B" series of Android smartphones with a few more phones with more cameras and sharper tech.
Flagships may slay consumers' wallets, but this chipset for smartphones will keep prices down while still packing the power in.
A few key specs have come out about this upcoming LG mid-ranger, but we don't exactly know what it will look like just yet.
It's nothing spectacular, but with some more evidence piled on, it's also becoming clear that the HTC Desire 12 will be real.
It's a transfer of the Enjoy 7S phone that launched in China in December and a mid-range exclusive for the red carrier. All details will come in February.
The specs are the same as before, but the names may strike closer to the Galaxy S-series' number. It'll be interesting to see the spin on this.
Samsung’s pretty satisfied with its new mobile payments system that it’s worked hard at putting together. Money’s been trading hands at a good clip. The company’s Injong Rhee has been rallying retail support in the US. But one of the big stumbling blocks that appears in contrast with the number of smartphones the manufacturer sells every year is that Samsung Pay’s reach is limited to owners of this year’s flagships.
We’ve had breadcrumbs about the chaebol’s plans to expand the service to mid-range and low-end phones. But for that [...]
The slow burn and churn at HTC has produced a series of rather disappointing results seemingly for both the consumer and, as the effect to the cause, the company itself. This so-called “Aero” project that CEO Cher Wang has been touting as the autumn “hero” (no, not that Hero) to save the Taiwanese OEM from the skids has been the subject of a lot of hot talk. Will it be the first Android Marshmallow phone? Will it be everything we dreamed of? Not necessarily.
Evan Blass continues his leaking career with a singular tweet divulging major details of what he [...]
Year-to-date, we have covered ten mid-range smartphones, depending on how you define that term. Somewhere in our reviews for each of them, we’d mention that the phone punches above its price tag or is a flat-out great deal all on its own. But devices in that category have failed to shake off their “middle child” reputation. We even lead in our video review of the ASUS ZenFone 2 with a scenario in which “if you break or lose that phone and need to replace it on the cheap,” you’d want to consider getting a wannabe-premium replacement for the same price [...]
Achievements with caveats come quite often in this industry. While not on Apple levels of spectacular, these numbers do look good, though. For comparison, Xiaomi, which kicked into life in 2011, sold 400,000 units on its first year in the market. Meizu‘s first smartphone effort rendered 600,000 sales in 2009. Heck, it took OnePlus just this past year to make over a million sales. But only three months ago did LeTV start marketing a line of three smartphones — the Le 1, the Le 1 Pro and the Snapdragon 810-powered LeMax — and it has just announced its one millionth sale.
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 [...]
These days, mid-range phones seem to be just as capable as the flagships. Could that be why manufacturers are banking on mid-rangers?
