MWC 2014

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 versus the new Galaxy S5 — what’s new?

Having just announced the Galaxy S5, Samsung fans are undoubtedly joyous about the new flagship. We like the new styling, which pinches a bit of cool from the Note series. There are also the typical litany of features packed in, but what’s changed? The device is clearly updated, but is there enough to get excited about? We give a quick overview of what’s new!

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has a heart rate monitor for those who shun wearables

Wearables are great, but still finding their way in the world. They promise to do all sorts of great things, but one function remains pretty standard — heart rate monitoring. If you don’t want to wear something on your wrist that keeps track of heart rate, Samsung has you covered. Their new Galaxy S5 has a heart rate monitor on the back.

Samsung Galaxy S smartphones top the 200 million milestone

We're here at Mobile World Congress and the Samsung Unpacked 5 event is currently in progress. While we've already seen Samsung announce the Galaxy S5 smartphone, as well as the Gear 2 and Gear Fit, there was also a bit more talk coming from JK Shin. To that point, he mentioned a rather large number -- 200 million.

Samsung Gear Fit hands-on

Samsung already tipped its hand on the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, but there's a third wearable for MWC 2014, the Samsung Gear Fit. The first of Samsung's smart wrist-wear to include a curved AMOLED display, the Gear Fit's touchscreen comes in at 1.84-inches and an unusual, scrolling-ticker-like resolution of 432 x 128.

Samsung Galaxy S5 hands-on

We knew the Samsung Galaxy S5 was coming, but in its fifth iteration as flagship of the company's Android range, we weren't quite sure whether the Galaxy range had lost its shine. Having spent some hands-on time with the new phone, we're left quietly confident, however: Samsung has brought over the build quality of the Note 3 and legitimately useful features like WiFi/LTE bonding, a heart rate sensor, and more to refine its now 5.1-inch smartphone.

Sony Xperia Z2 tablet: hands-on with the ultra slim 10-inch powerhouse

With the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, a lot was promised. In a lot of ways, it’s a blown up version of the Xperia Z2 smartphone. In others, it’s a fantastic tablet in its own right. It’s also a Sony, so you know it’s going to have a stellar build and outstanding feature-set. To find out just what makes it so special, we go hands-on with the Xperia Z2 tablet at MWC.

Sony Xperia Z2: hands-on from MWC 2014

With the Sony Xperia Z2, what you get is far more than the sum of its parts. The flagship smartphone from Sony is easily one of the better devices around, and has one of the best mobile cameras you’ll find — including dedicated devices. Does it keep pace with the Xperia Z1 we fell so hard for last year? We go hands-on at MWC to find out!

HTC Desire 816 eyes-on

As had been rumored, HTC appears to be shifting some focus back to the mid-range. Coming out of Mobile World Congress were two smartphone announcements from HTC, both of which are in the Desire series. These include the HTC Desire 816 and the Desire 610. As we mentioned in the announcement post, the Desire 816 has a decent (read: mid-range) set of overall features and specs.
