Ready for more high-end HTC handheld confusion and probably still no chance to challenge Samsung or even LG flagships? Rumor has it no radically redesigned One M9 sequel is in the pipeline by the year’s end, with the M9+ instead headed for Europe before September and a mystery “intermediate” Aero “tipped for release by Sprint, more »
Apparently not one to “hop on the me too bandwagon” with immature, gimmicky technologies, OnePlus waited for mobile fingerprint recognition to evolve and fully bloom before it could be fitted on the “impressive, thoughtful and versatile” 2. That’s right, ladies and gents, the OnePlus 2 hype train is chugging along, with stops at mouth-watering stations more »
Is there ever going to be an end to external battery packs? Probably not for quite some time. So you might as well get in and get one now, right? While there are many, many to choose from, not all portable battery packs are equal. Curious as to how this one by Kensington holds up? more »
I brought my Limefuel L130X battery to a park (a park! for my kid) this one time, and it came back home looking quite roughed up. It had been knocked down off its perch a bunch of times – the kids thought it was a game after the first few drops. Sure it still works more »
Guaranteed an Android 5.0 promotion ever since March, and upgraded to the Material Designed OS iteration in Asia a month later, HTC’s selfie-centric Desire Eye obviously required extra optimization work for AT&T.

While Samsung is trying hard to show their 6 is greater than Apple’s 6, Huawei awkwardly has no problem beating its own 8 with a 7. Confused? Well, you should be, since the Honor 7 bizarrely outshines the recently unveiled P8, at least in the photography department. A bona fide imaging beast, the newest entry more »
You might be growing weary of Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei or ZTE’s mostly unremarkable attempts at challenging , but what the mid-range mobile arena still lacks are Lollipop soldiers. Running either Android 5.0 or 5.1. Especially the latter. On that note, you should be ecstatic to hear about Boost Mobile’s $99.99 LG Tribute 2 and $149.99 more »
Nowhere near as enthralling as the G4 flagship, LG’s low to mid-end Leon still looked like it had a few things going for it when it went on sale roughly a month ago. Add (even more) extreme affordability in the equation for the next few hours, as the 4.5-inch Lollipop handheld costs a ridiculously low more »
To make sure they do Nokia’s memory justice, and don’t harm the Lumia brand’s global awareness and popularity any further, Microsoft has very meticulously prepared its solo high-end smartphone debut.
Many of Sony’s “strategic” moves regarding new product releases and old device retirements lately have made little to no sense, but in the eyes of easily pocketable flagship fans, the Japanese OEM should redeem itself soon enough with a remarkable Xperia Z4 Compact.
Before they can raise their US flagship profile with the remarkable Nubia Z9 and surprising Axon Phone, China-based ZTE will first seek to reinforce their market position in the entry-level Android niche. After all, that’s still mainly what people recognize the brand for.
