Galaxy S6, S6 edge cometh April 10: here are our impessions

Samsung has finally announced the nitty gritty details, or at least some of it, when its prime smartphones launch in the US. The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge will arrive in the US via multiple carriers, both postpaid and prepaid, and many, many retailers. This all starts on March 27, when you can put down a pre-order for either, or maybe even both, of the two. The smartphones actually won't be available until 10th April, so while waiting, why not join us as we give 2015's stars a spin.

HTC One M9: an excruciating practice in refinement

HTC has shown its hand for 2015, it's high end race horse for this year, and the last smartphone to be launched under now ex-CEO Peter Chou. It is clear from a glance, and from a bit of reading of HTC's PR materials, that the One M9 is its most refined, most luxurious looking, and most advanced smartphone to date. But is it it's best? And more importantly, can it boast of being the best when put alongside other 2015 smartphones? SlashGear's Chris Davies takes the smartphone for a spin to find out the answers for himself.

MWC 2015: Android Community Top Picks

And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause. Here are some of the most noteworthy products to come out of MWC 2015.

Samsung Galaxy S 6, S 6 edge: a new yet familiar design

It's finally here! The most anticipated smartphone, whether you like it or not, has landed here at MWC 2015. Although the Galaxy S 6 and the Galaxy S 6 edge (note the spaces and the cases) have been almost leaked to death, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of all those bits and pieces. What we have here today is Samsung's attempt at a revival, at giving the world solid proof that it hasn't lost its touch just yet. And guess what? It actually might have just accomplished that.

What’s in the box?! It’s a Moto E!

Though we were expecting a Moto 360, what we got is potentially much better. Today, sitting on the porch waiting for me when I woke, was a box form Motorola. We all knew it was coming, but what was inside remained a bit of a mystery. A refresh to their smartwatch offering was what had our fingers crossed, but news over the past few days that a Moto E with LTE was possibly coming tossed a wrench into our desires. A new Moto E was exactly what we got, too.

CES 2015 Roundup: Android in full throttle

The dust of CES 2015 has finally settled down, so now we can take a more holistic overview of what went down at the world's largest consumer electronics event. Unsurprisingly, Android is at the center of many of the new, and some old, devices we've seen. But while wearables, particularly smartwatches are still somewhat of a hot topic, we're now seeing Android's growing presence outside of its usual form factors, in particular in cars and in TVs. Join us for Android Community's recap of CES 2015.

Looking back, moving forward: 2014 in retrospect, 2015 in preview

We're just into the second day of the new year so the memories of the previous one are still quite fresh in our mind. But in case you may have forgotten some of the highlights of 2014, here's a quick recap of the unforgettable devices, names, and events that entered our mobile world. We also get to polish up our crystal balls as we try to discern movements and trends to cook up some hypotheses as to what will be coming our way this year, especially with CES 2015 just around the corner.

Galaxy Note Edge Review

Among Samsung’s more ambitious devices, the Galaxy Note Edge is equal parts intrigue and confusion. The Note Edge occupies a space few other than Samsung dare to go in that it brings a new form factor that won’t appeal to the masses. In this niche is where Samsung takes their R&D to new heights, broadening their horizons in search of what’s next. Is the interesting Note Edge screen gimmick, though? Do you need a screen that peels off the edge? We’re about to find out.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 & Yoga Tablet 2 Pro review

Lenovo has made a big impact on the Android world with their Yoga tablets. Most of the attention is paid to the design, where a cylindrical battery occupies a side (or bottom… or top) of the Yoga Tablet. Now that Lenovo has released their second iteration of their funky tablet, the Yoga Tablet 2, is it still worth our praise and admiration? Does a battery/handle/stand straddle the right lines, or has Lenovo fallen victim to malaise in not updating their hardware enough?

HTC RE Camera review

A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories. Is the Re, which draws comparisons to devices like a GoPro, worthy of your attention, or is it another strange device we’ll soon forget? A review should answer that question nicely.
