The textbook definition of experimental futuristic technology, Samsung’s first virtual reality device comes closer to its prospective present-day adopters with Best Buy availability. It seemed a long shot a while back, but the Gear VR is being manufactured in enough units to cover demand via Sammy’s online store and third-party retailers.
In addition to being a very gutsy device manufacturer, never content to settle for home glory, Huawei stands out from the Android OEM pack with a refreshing candor and media transparency. The Chinese company literally just laid out their plans for 2015, and now they’re going one step further.
After a number of opening gaffes with Lollipop deadlines for Google Play Edition devices, HTC seemed to get its head in the game by accelerating the process for certain unlocked One M8 versions, and the Dev Edition.
To some people, a keyboard is just a keyboard. But they may be the same type who can pick any random mechanical pencil off of retail peg-hooks and feel completely satisfied. I don’t know how to do that, since even mechanical pencils are tools in my eyes. And any tools I use – knives for the kitchen, trimmers for the backyard, or keyboards for writing/gaming – are carefully chosen for the long-term.
Just when we were ready to hail Samsung’s return to form in the low-cost Android smartphone space, the oft-rumored Galaxy J1 timidly broke cover in Malaysia, shattering sweet dreams and debunking wishful speculation.
Xiaomi has expanded to a few developing markets, and it’s apparently working out well. The company has managed to be a part of the top five smartphone vendors and is receiving a warm welcome, especially in India. The Chinese company has released a number of its handsets in India, and the latest one to join the product portfolio, the Xiaomi MI4.
Well, hello there, mysterious entry-level Motorola smartphone we’ve never seen before. Nice to meet you, especially in high-resolution, press-friendly form, although we’d sure like to know what your deal is.
Samsung is yet to even make Galaxy S5’s follow-up official, and the Chinese clone-meisters are already trying to cash in on the “next big thing’s” easily recognizable brand. Of course, ZTE’s Blade S6 can be hardly called a copycat, since, well, we’ve no idea how the Galaxy S6 will look.
Retired mobile leak guru @evleaks seems to have just temporarily paused his seclusion, turning back to his true love and passion with a bang. Adding credence to rumors HTC duped us so far using “decoys” to distract us from the real One M9 deal, Evan Blass tweeted a picture showing two new devices like no other.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is said to be the biggest Android update yet, and many devices from several different OEMs have already received the update. Samsung has also rolled out the latest update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 in some regions, and it seems the update for the Galaxy Note 3 has started as well.
Hefty discounts on Android classics like LG’s G2, G3, HTC’s One M7 or Samsung’s Galaxy S5 are nice and all, and they can surely bring smiles to a number of budget buyers’ faces. But power users and incurable speed addicts with gigantic hands still need to pay an arm and a leg for such phablet pros as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Motorola-made Google Nexus 6.
Until very recently, Meizu has been one of the most grossly neglected Chinese smartphone brands on the Western hemisphere. Even more so than Xiaomi, and definitely deemed a second-tier OEM compared to the likes of OnePlus, Huawei or ZTE.
