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.

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.

Android 5.0 Lollipop: what kinds of sweetness to expect

Google today dropped a load of goodies, from the expected Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices, to the surprise Nexus Player Android TV contraption. Tying all of these together, however, is one that has been, sometimes rather comically, speculated on since June. Android 5.0 is in town, and its name is Lollipop. But before you go making fun of this seemingly unassuming name, first try to hear out the sweet things that the latest Android version will bring. At least for those devices that are fated to receive it.

Nexus Player is your Android TV in a not so boxy circle

What is it with Google and round Android-powered media players? Calling into mind the ill-fated Nexus Q (odd) ball, Google today has dropped a surprise for those who were just expecting the Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet, and Android 5.0, christened Lollipop. Hopefully, however, the unexpected Nexus Player is here to stay especially since it is based on a more established yet still new Android TV platform, though the question remains whether how much need there is for a dedicated Android box for the living room.

This is the HTC Nexus 9 for movers and makers

The fated day has indeed arrived and Google has unleashed a flood of Android announcements that proves to the world that it is still at the top of its game. Leaked and speculated on time and again, Google is indeed finally giving Android lovers a newer tablet to desire. And indeed it is made by HTC, the manufacturer's first tablet in a very long time. And indeed, as well, the Nexus 9 has turned out to be quite everything we have dreamed the next reference Android tablet would be.

Here comes the Motorola Nexus 6 to offer more of everything

Google has indeed come out with the next Nexus smartphone along with a new tablet today. As has been repeatedly leaked and tipped, the Nexus 6 bears Motorola's mark, making it the first Nexus device to come from the manufacturer's portfolio. But the Nexus 6 is also a first for Google, its first smartphone to completely cross the line from a handy size to one that trades in comfort for more room to display things.

Android Lollipop revealed with Nexus 6, 9, and Player

This afternoon Google revealed that they’d be releasing Android L as Android 5.0 Lollipop. Along with this release comes three new devices, the Nexus 6 smartphone, the Nexus 9 tablet, and the Nexus Player. The Nexus Player is the first official Android TV device to be released with Google, and it’s made by ASUS. The Nexus 6 is made by Motorola, and the Nexus 9 is made by HTC.

Sony announces Z3, Z3v for T-Mobile, Verizon

Today, Sony has offically unveiled their Xperia Z3 smartphone to the world. The natural iteration in their flagship lineup, the Xperia Z3 has at least one unique thing going for it. Sony will be bringing their handset to T-Mobile, which is something they’ve been doing for some time. We’re used to that, but with the Xperia Z3, Sony has figured out carriers a bit better, and will truck a variant over to Verizon, too. That Verizon model will also have one unique feature the other won’t.

HTC Desire EYE has your selfie needs covered on both sides

It appears that the leaks were quite spot on. HTC does indeed have a double-sided camera phone for digital photographers and selfie addicts alike. As part of its brand new imaging thrust, which led to the new HTC RE camera as well, the HTC Desire EYE offers a new kind of mobile photography experience, by making the front-facing camera a first class citizen and on the exact same level as the back one. Perhaps it also helps that the HTC Desire EYE is strangely quite on par with the HTC's One M8 flagship in terms of hardware.
