CES 2014

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ hands-on plus BOOMBand Wearable

Alcatel wants a bigger slice of the midrange, and the OneTouch Idol X+ is the smartphone it thinks will achieve that. Announced at CES 2014 - and with a North American launch confirmed as in the pipeline - the Android handset keeps the 5-inch Full HD display of its predecessor, the Idol X, but slots in a new "true octacore" chip from MediaTek and works with a new "BOOMBand" Bluetooth wearable for fitness tracking and notifications. We grabbed some hands-on time with the Idol X+ at CES 2014.

Lenovo’s S930 is made for media, and aimed at the everyday user

Lenovo’s new smartphones here at CES really are subtly impressive. Though Lenovo isn’t a name you might think of when considering a smartphone, they should be. With a solid build quality that somehow feels light as a feather, the Lenovo S930 impressed us quite a bit. While not a spec heavy device, it's solidly useful day-to-day.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro leaked in a big way

Need something bigger? Samsung has it for you. We’ve heard the rumors here and there, but nothing has been confirmed — until now. Samsung, either by design or fault, has leaked their biggest tablet in a big way. A giant banner adorns the South Hall of the Las Vegas convention center, and it’s an homage to the biggest of Samsung’s offerings.

Lenovo S650 takes dead aim at the mid range market

Lenovo has a few interesting phones for us here at CES 2014, and most are aimed squarely at the mid range market. Though it can be easy to dismiss a mid range device as something lesser-than, Lenovo has come through in a big way for their handsets — both in form, and pricing.
