    Lenovo PHAB Plus is a Crazy Affordable 7″ Phablet

    The upper bound of smartphone size is in 5″ territory, while the lower bound for tablets seems to be entrenched in the 7″ range. Few dare to enter the no-man’s land that is the 6″ range, but Lenovo does things their own way. At IFA this week, they’re giving us a look at their upcoming […]

    Android Wearables To Start Playing Nicely With iPhone

    Google dropped a big announcement in wearables on their official blog today — from now on, all smartwatches running Android Wear will work with iOS, making it a little harder for Apple to corner its own wearable market while opening up a whole lot of potential customers to Google’s hardware buddies.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Gets Pricing and Release Date

    If you like totting around a tablet for your daily commute, you won’t find another that is lighter than the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablets, whether they have an 8-inch or 9.7-inch display, or offer Wi-Fi or LTE connectivity.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is Smaller Than Ever, That’s a Good Thing [Hands-on]

    And now for your regularly scheduled smartphone update. The Galaxy Note 5 was introduced at Samsung’s Unpacked event earlier today, and it’s probably the best example yet of why the yearly release cycle probably isn’t worth it for companies and consumers alike.

    Is HTC About To Go Bust?

    That things have been bad financially for HTC hasn’t been news for some time.

    OnePlus 2 Brings a Lot of Upgrades at the Risk of a Price Hike

    Moto X Style Pure Edition Hands-on [Video]

    Motorola officially announced their next generation Moto X yesterday, and as it turns out, it’s getting split in two — kind of.

    LG Just Brought Back the Flip Phone, But With Android

    How quickly things change. The once ubiquitous flip phone has been consigned to the dumpster of history, replaced by the now ubiquitous non-flippy smartphone. Fortunately, we believe in recycling here in the 21st century, and that means nothing stays in the dumpster of history too long before getting dug out. So today, we have LG […]

    Asus Goes Even Cheaper With the ZenFone 2E

    We’re big fans of the ZenFone 2, Asus’ low-cost phone that doesn’t fall too short of a flagship. The ZenFone 2E doesn’t pretend to be anywhere near a flagship, but at an even lower price, it’s looking like another great value. The ZenFone 2E is smaller at 5″, but still runs Android 5.0 like the […]

    Microsoft Brings Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to Android

    After bringing free versions of their Office apps to Android tablets in January, Microsoft only needed to bring Android phones into the fold to give Office a truly cross-platform, cross-device presence.

    Hello Kitty Gets Her Own Watch Face on Android Wear

    Android Wear, Google’s smartwatch operating system, has really racked up the custom watch faces over its relatively short existence. Now sitting at over 1,500 watch faces available on the Google Play store, Google is adding 17 new faces this week, including the Hello Kitty face we’ve been waiting for since pretty much the beginning. Watch […]

    Microsoft Hyperlapse Makes Videos Smoother

    We all know the problem with vacation pictures—we take so many that no one really wants to look through them all afterwards.

    iOS and Android Apps Coming to Windows 10

    Unlike Apple and Google, which have come to use their developers conferences as major press events for new announcements, Microsoft’s Build conference more or less kept things strictly about the developers, with a lot of discussion about new coding tools and backend software that shows off Microsoft’s still-formidable behind-the-scenes prowess.
