Samsung answers design questions for Note 4, Note Edge

When going a version up, there is always the tension between keeping elements of the old design and ditching them for something new. Samsung went through all of that for its new flagship phablets – the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge. Let’s look at some of their considerations.

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.

Xiaomi to migrate data center from China to US and Singapore

Xiaomi is a Chinese firm that is seeing some success outside of its home country. One of the things that turns many international users off is having their personal and business information stored in China where cybercrime is rampant. Xiaomi's Hugo Barra has recently announced that the company is in the process of migrating data from Beijing where it currently resides to data centers in other countries.

Amazon Fire Phone not on fire, revenue takes a hit

Amazon just made its earnings conference call today and things are not looking good for the retailer giant. The company reported a staggering third quarter loss of $544 million, compared to last year's loss of $25 million from the same quarter. And the culprit? Both surprisingly and unsurprisingly, it is the Fire Phone that is to blame, at least according to some company reps. The rather eccentric smartphone has apparently cost Amazon a $170 million writedown in addition to supplier commitment costs.

LG’s F490 shows up in Vietnam, up close images available

It might just be the first competitive device that will sport an LG-made processor – an octa-core processor at that – similar to what Samsung is doing with its Exynos cores. The F490 is not yet officially available, but it has shown up in Vietnam for a nice photo session.

Sony intros LinkedIn for Info-eye camera

Sony’s Info-eye Xperia camera app has been revolutionary. When it was first introduced, Sony had little to show. We knew it’s a smart social camera that could do more than just take photos. It’s a smartphone camera being reimagined to make “socializing” faster and easier.

LG Odin SoC resurfaces in leaked specs for LG F490L Liger

There's a saying that goes "if at first you don't succeed, try and try until you die". Or something like that. LG has long been rumored to have its own mobile processor in the works, but that has yet to become reality. But if this latest leak of a hitherto unknown LG smartphone, the LG-F480L or "Liger", is to be believed, then the LG Odin will soon materialize. But it will not be the LG Odin as we know, or have heard, it to be, but an LG NUCLUN instead.
