HTC Desire Eye Review: Welcome to the (selfie) machine

Marketed as the “phone made for selfies”, the HTC Desire Eye forges a new path for HTC. It’s not all metal, and definitely not a flagship device. After leaning on the One series for two years, HTC is now looking to the mid-range segment, dominated by younger buyers stateside. Is the Desire Eye a new phone that can compete with the likes of a Moto G? Better yet, can it keep pace with an iPhone 5S, or 5C? The short answer: almost.

Nokia not returning to handset business

Nokia still has remaining businesses but its mobile division is no more. Its CEO Rajeev Suri made it clear that it’s not going back to manufacturing handsets. Instead, the company will focus more on its Technologies business, the HERE mapping subsidiary, and the Networks unit.

Google rolls out new Messenger app

After the main Google app and Google Keyboard are updated, here’s a new Messenger app from Google. This is a new app that is meant for SMS messaging so you can stay in touch with family and friends all the time. This also allows MMS messaging to any phone, as well as, group texts. If you still want to share more media, you can do so and send photos, audio messages, and videos.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: it’s a big deal

Samsung has had a downturn recently, with earnings tanking quarterly and many observers wondering if their “time” had come. They may be down, but Samsung is not out. The Galaxy S5 and Note 4 carry the flags for Samsung’s handset division, and between the weird concept devices and middling mid-rangers, these two pack the most firepower. The Note 4, the bigger of the two, is the latest in a long line of devices that set the trend we’re currently experiencing in smartphone sizing. Is it one of the lone bright spots in a crowded market, or has Samsung really lost a step?

DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as we saw with the other phone we keep mentioning here, the DROID Turbo isn’t just iterative. As the pound-for-pound champion in the DROID lineup, the Turbo is meant as the flagship Verizon handset. Is it worth of that title, though? We find out.

Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary game for Android introduced

If you don’t know what Boulder Dash is, then maybe you’ve been living under a rock or was born in the new millennium. I’m not concealing my age here but I know the Boulder Dash game is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. Originally released in 1984 by First Star Software, the Boulder Dash creators Peter Liepa and Chris Gray collaborated once again to bring this new version of the game for Android.

The Wolf Among Us now available on Google Play Store

If you enjoyed the award-winning Fables graphic novel series and you have an Android device, then this is a game you should definitely have on your smartphone or tablet. The Wolf Among Us is an offshoot from that series and this game was developed by the same guys that brought you The Walking Dead game. Even though this is a point and click game and not an action one, it is still very much for mature audiences due to the subject matter and the violence and gore within the game.

Moto X (2014) Review

A natural upgrade to the 2013 version, the new Moto X definitely picks up where the former iteration left off. It’s a bit bigger, a touch bolder, and has a hint of class this time around — but does it do justice to the darling of the Android world, or try to hard? We find out in our review.
