Qualcomm announced their Snapdragon 600 and 800 processors, we've been wanting to get our hands on them. The Snapdragon 600 outperforms anything on the mobile market as we've seen with the HTC One and Galaxy S4, but it's about to get even hotter with their faster, better, more efficient 2.3 GHz quad-core 800 series processor. We have our hands all over their developer kits below.
Huawei Ascend P6 and has the ability to bring about, as Huawei notes, "instant facial beauty." What we've found, on the other hand, is that there's no two ways about it: this software changes the basic structure of your face and makes the user look... downright strange.
Huawei Ascend P6. This device is made by the company to be both the world's slimmest and their premiere release - it's the hero strategy spreading across the world, hitting Huawei with a device that'll be coming in black, white, and pink, too. The pink edition is especially unique, of course, with not only pink plastic and metal up front (the plastic existing under glass, of course), but a pink metal rim, as well.
Apple put all the rumors to rest and officially announced their next entry into the music world with iTunes Radio. A music streaming service from Apple has been speculated about for years, and now that it's finally here we wanted to compare it with Google's offering. Apple is late to the subscription-based streaming party, but have a pretty good plan that has me questioning my Google Music All Access subscription already.
Apple and iOS 7 news. The folks from Cupertino announced the all-new and completely redesigned iOS 7 for all their iDevices, and much more. If you missed any of it head to our sister site SlashGear for the details. We're already seeing 'Android vs iOS' posts, or 5 things Apple copied from Android, but to be honest we like it, and I welcome the competition.
all-new Gmail last week and began rolling it out for all Android users this week. The update arrived in the Play Store on June 3rd and while it brought some notable changes, there are a few items that have been bugging us. The two that seem to be the most offending is the lack of a delete option and the sender images.
4G LTE data speeds we get on our smartphones have come a long way in the short two years since LTE first hit the streets. I remember loving how fast that HTC Thunderbolt was, even though I was still in T-Mobile land. Now that most have 4G LTE including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and more, we want to see how fast yours is.
for over $12 billion in 2011, many (myself included) thought Motorola would be the first company to release what we're now seeing as Google or Nexus experience phones. However, Samsung managed to beat them to the punch, and now even HTC. What gives? Google told us they built a firewall between Android and Motorola, but could the next wave of Motorola phones all be Google Editions? Yup.
'Senseless Edition' HTC One was real. In fact, Google has officially announced the handset and it will be available towards the end of June. They are referring to this model as the HTC One, done "the Google way." By that, they are referring to the Nexus like experience that users will get. Or in simpler terms, they are releasing an HTC One without the Sense user interface.
