Lenovo VIBE Shot hands-on: smartphone in camera clothing [UPDATE]

If you approach the Lenovo VIBE Shot from the back, you can be forgiven for thinking it's a very slim digital camera instead, with a rear that seems to be designed in landscape orientation. And that's not accidental either. This Lenovo Android device may not boast the Dolby Atmos technology that its MWC 2015 siblings have, but it pretty much makes up for it in one other aspect. As you might have guessed already, the VIBE Shot sells itself as a digital photographer's weapon, flaunting some specs to make camera lover consider the device.

Lenovo A7000 hands-on: touting Dolby Atmost at budget price

If you've seen Lenovo's two new tablets yesterday, then you might already guess the company's MWC 2015 spiel by now. It is offering affordable mobile devices that try to give the best, particularly in the audio department. Th new Lenovo A7000 walks this line as well. What is normally a mid-tier smartphone is made more interesting by the inclusion of Dolby's Atmos technology. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Lenovo is throwing in some other interesting tidbits as well to make the budget smartphone a bit more enticing.

Sony launches new Xperia M4 Aqua midrange phone at MWC

It looks like Sony Mobile is now aiming to solidify its market share, even in the midrange niche, with the release of the new Xperia M4 Aqua. The Xperia M4 Aqua is a new smartphone that is a midranger in price, but seems to carry Sony’s commitment to premium specs.

New Mobile World Congress, new smartphones in the market to choose from. Acer announced in time for the tech convention in Barcelona two new affordable smartphones in their Liquid series: the Z220 and the Z520.

Acer Liquid Jade Z: premium features, “wallet-friendly” price

Aside from the two previously-announced new Acer Liquid smartphones (the Z220 and the Z520), the Taiwanese OEM has also announced another device that has more premium features but they promise to not kill your wallet when it comes to the price. The Liquid Jade Z has high-end specifications, the ability to take better pictures even in low-light conditions, has Hi-res audio and comes in an ultra-thin package but will cost lesser than others of its ilk that are currently in the market.

Galaxy S 6 Edge vs Galaxy Note Edge: which edge is edgier

Now that Samsung has two "edgy" smartphones under its belt, it's probably natural to ask which of the two has the Edge. It might be far too easy to say that the Galaxy S 6 edge is the winner simply because it's newer than the Galaxy Note Edge, but that is hardly ever the case. Although we will definitely need more intimate time spent with the latest, we can probably narrow down the answer for you. That is, in case you're in the market for a smartphone with a curved edge, for one reason or another.

Samsung Galaxy S 6, S 6 edge: a new yet familiar design

It's finally here! The most anticipated smartphone, whether you like it or not, has landed here at MWC 2015. Although the Galaxy S 6 and the Galaxy S 6 edge (note the spaces and the cases) have been almost leaked to death, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of all those bits and pieces. What we have here today is Samsung's attempt at a revival, at giving the world solid proof that it hasn't lost its touch just yet. And guess what? It actually might have just accomplished that.

HTC One M9 vs One M8: the endless question of upgrades

It's that time of year again when we ask ourselves whether it's time to upgrade to the latest model. Those on HTC's flagships have it a little harder, as year after year the company puts out almost similar smartphone. To some extent, the HTC One M9 just unveiled at MWC 2015 is no different, present an almost incremental upgrade path. But looks, and specs, can be deceiving and our answer this year might very well be different than our last. Read on to see whether you should grab that shiny new One M9 or not.

HTC One M9 hands-on: refining a tried and tested design

The HTC One M9 is finally here at MWC 2015 and, depending on your particularly focus on smartphones, you may be tickled pink or disappointed. HTC's 2015 flagship bears a very familiar visage that could easily be mistaken for last year's model at first glance. The hardware inside is evolutionary in some places, disappointing in others. The software that runs on top can also be argued to be rather gimmicky. All these, however, aren't all that bad and are quite necessary for the manufacturer to establish a design that is "unmistakably HTC".

Android’s Global Smartphone Profit Share only 11 percent, says Strategy Analytics

The smartphone era will never come to an end. This isn’t just my prediction but I think even if tablets and wearables become popular, the smartphone will be a standard mobile device more than the two. Laptops are more preferred now over desktop computers. However, tablets are more preferred over laptops. But between a tablet and a smartphone, more people would go for a smartphone because it’s more portable and has more features than a tablet because of the call and text functions. Honestly, you can do almost anything on the smartphone now…even work!
