Samsung Galaxy Note Edge starts receiving Lollipop update

As they say (whoever they are), good things come to those who wait. For the owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the wait for the Android 5.0 Lollipop has been fraught with anxiety (are we really going to get an update?), impatience (why aren't we getting it yet?), and despair (we're never going to get it are we?). But finally, the wait is over as the official announcement is here. Well, at least for those who are on T-Mobile, that is.

Samsung goes around the world in Next Is Now product demo

Samsung is really going all-out to market and promote its latest flagship, the Galaxy S6. Their newest publicity campaign spans three countries and involves three very different kinds of personalities who will be showcasing the smartphone's best features in a live demo involving their respective fields of expertise. The events will also be live-streamed, giving users everywhere the first-hand digital experience of the Next Is Now campaign, and maybe even convincing people to actually purchase the device.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will probably not get Lollipop update

We knew it was too good to be true! Last December, rumors were floating around that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will receive a surprising Android 5.0 Lollipop update, despite the fact that it is almost 3 years old.

And if a Facebook post from Samsung Gulf is to be believed, it is actually never going to happen.

Special bootloaders from Sony to allow recovery access

If there’s probably just one thing you’d hate about owning a Sony Xperia device, it’s probably the bootloaders that prohibit booting into a recovery partition. Make no mistake about it, Sony Xperia devices are known for their aesthetic and chic minimalist design, and their premium hardware. But tweaking the software to run the custom ROM you want is always a huge headache.

Plastic variant of the HTC M9+ spotted at TENAA

If you're waiting for the HTC One M9 Plus to arrive in the United States, I can't assure you that the bigger sibling of the HTC One M9 is coming. The phone may only be available in Asia but a recent TENAA certification gives us hope that the model, or atleast, might have another variant which could be ready for its Western launch. Nothing is certain yet but now we have an idea that HTC has another unit under its sleeves.

LG wants you to compare G4 to iPhone 6, 6Plus

The LG G4 just launched a few days back, and as expected, people are relatively pleased with it. Among Android flagship phones, it will be competing with the very strong performing Samsung Galaxy S6, its edgy brother the Galaxy S6 Edge, the HTC One M9, and the upcoming Sony Xperia Z4. But in its detail web pages, it seems like LG really wants Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users to compare their screens with the G4, as if the latest iPhones are the real competition.

Lenovo A3900 budget phone now official

Watch Samsung master the impossible with the Galaxy S6 edge

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is a thing of beauty. It's the first smartphone in the world with a dual curved display screen, taking after last year's Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung has gained a lot of praises for the newest flagship phones and the South Korean company is even having a hard time keeping up with the demands that it opened up its new factory earlier than planned. All these are happening while Samsung is going on full force marketing the premium phones.
