Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy S5, which debuted to middling reviews at MWC, Sony’s Xperia Z2 was received with unanimous praise at the exact same event. And there are more than a few voices saying Sony, for once, one-upped Sammy.
comScore Report: BlackBerry surpassed by Windows Phone, Android still No. 1 mobile OS, Apple top OEM
I am not a BlackBerry user but I am cheering for the Canadian phone manufacturer being a pioneer in the smartphone business. BlackBerry OS has recently been surpassed by Windows Phone in the US smartphone market. This is according to a report by comScore which says Windows Phone now holds 3.2 percent of the market while BlackBerry now at 3.1 percent in the Top Smartphone Platforms list.
As Samsung decided to take a page from Sony’s playbook and roll out the Galaxy S5 with a non-optional water armor, the possibility of an S5 Active coming anytime soon is slim. An S5 Zoom is certainly likely, though its predecessor has been mostly bashed, whereas an S5 mini is not a matter of if, but rather when.
I have no idea how many Moto X smartphones are being sold thru the Moto Maker platform but I sure want to try customising my own unit and actually receiving it in the mail. It seems exciting to see your design become a real phone.
It looks like T-Mobile badly wants us to think Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has the makings of a tremendous box-office hit, which frankly suggests the exact opposite. The UnCarrier first went on record last week with pre-registration numbers, claiming they hit an outstanding 100,000 in just 48 hours.
Despite not exactly promoting it very aggressively, or making it available in subsidized flavors stateside, HTC’s Butterfly S was always expected to get a fairly swift Android 4.4 KitKat update. After all, the 5 incher is essentially identical hardware-wise with the HTC One, simply swapping metal for plastic and boosting the high-ender’s footprint.
Releasing phones, be them smart or dumb, high or low-end, with playfully colored back covers has become a signature move for Nokia, stretching out to its Lumia, Asha and, most recently, X line.
Back at the Mobile World Congress 2014, HTC unveiled a couple of handsets, including the Desire 816 and Desire 610, targeted towards the mid-range market segment. If you thought the company was done with the launches, think again as the company unveiled yet another mid-range handset dubbed as the HTC Desire 310.
This is probably going to sound a little hasty, but apparently Nokia plans to show off some new hardware less than two months after unveiling the Android-based X line. Specifically, on April 19.
Google may be leading the mobile browser wars, but if, for some reason, you don’t like Google Chrome, there are other decent alternatives available. Opera is one of the most decent alternatives available for Android devices, and is a pretty old one too. Recently, the folks at Opera updated their browser for Android, and introduced some decent set of features, including webRTC support, HTML5 Vibration API, improved search feature and more.
Great news, Sprint customers, your carrier hasn’t only been expeditious with Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Galaxy S4/Note 3 duo, but it also plans to give the royal treatment to multiple other Samsung devices in the near future.
We all love to either capture and/or share pictures and video. As the one who is frequently behind the lens, it’s rare that I am ever in any shots. Sure, the memories are there, but those who look sometimes think I just wasn’t involved.
