HTC One M9 review; newer, but not much better

By now, you’ve heard both sides of the argument. Either the HTC One M9 is a fantastic update of the One M8, or it’s iterative and boring. The camera is either ‘just fine for normal use’, or severely lacking. On paper, the One M9 is more like a One M8 1/2, but often times what you get is more than what you see. Is the One M9 really a boring, iterative flagship from HTC, or is this One still worthy to carry HTC’s banners into Android battle?

Project Fi is FInally here and is everything we expected

Google has finally pulled away the veil from what is really called Project Fi and it seems that the information that was gleaned from an earlier leak was quite spot on. Google's experimental wireless service is bound to make both consumers and carriers rethink how they're doing business, though it might not have ramifications in the industry immediately. While we do know most of the basics of Project Fi, they say that the devil is in the details, so let's take a peek at the three core features of the program.

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.

HTC event March 1st to show newest phone: HTC Hima incoming?

HTC has been promising a blockbuster 2015, and the first opportunity for the company to wow us is Mobile World Congress in early March. Sure enough, HTC has fired out invites for a March 1st event, dubbed "Utopia in Progress", at which we're expecting to see the firm's new flagship smartphone. Scheduled roughly a year after the HTC One M8 debuted, according to the rumor machine the Barcelona launch is more than likely for the phone we've known as the "HTC Hima" from various benchmarking leaks.

Google’s Project Ara hands-on: modular plug-and-play smartphone action

The modular smartphone you're about to take a peek at goes by the name Project Ara. It's a modular smartphone concept, coming from Google ATAP and actually - eventually - coming to the market with its own hardware store. Where you may have purchased your own custom Moto X in the past, you get one shot - the device stays as it is. With Project Ara, you've got the option of updating the smartphone's hardware - new pieces can be added whenever you like.

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.

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.

Curved OLED wraps Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 may not have been a surprise, but its Galaxy Note Edge sibling is, taking the S Pen equipped phablet and giving it a curved display that wraps around the right side of the phone. Revealed at Samsung Unpacked at IFA 2014 this week, the Note Edge trims the Note 4's 5.7-inch screen down to 5.6-inches - though keeps the Quad HD resolution - but tacks on a curved Super AMOLED piece that can be used as a shortcut bar and notification ticker.

Is this LG’s new, round smartwatch?

LG’s G Watch can be considered the first Android Wear smartwatch, if you’re keeping track of that sort of thing. The Moto 360 was then the second, and rounded out the Android Wear offerings (see what I did there?). A few flagship wearables later, LG is back with a second smartwatch, and they’ve taken a hint from Motorola this time.
