Chinese mobile market reportedly slowing down as per new IDC report

For the first time in six years, the supposedly emerging mobile market in China is showing signs of slowing down as the year over year figures show it has contracted 4% in the first quarter of 2015,, according to a the Mobile Phone Tracker report from the IDC. Of course it isn't time yet to panic, especially for those who have invested in this market, but it just goes to show that they are nearing saturation point, and so the focus has to somehow change.

T-Mobile reportedly giving $100 if you buy Samsung phone and tablet

If you're looking to buy both a high-end Samsung smartphone and a tablet, and you're looking at getting a sort of rebate for the two, then T-Mobile might be the carrier you're looking for. A leaked communication to their staff reportedly said that they will be offering a $100 prepaid Mastercard for all customers who will be buying both a smartphone and a tablet together, although not necessarily at the same time.

HTC developing a game plan, lists goals for monetization

Ever since that news of HTC's revenue going down last April, we're curious as to how the Taiwanese company will be able to cope up with the loss. The brand is still hopeful because there are other models to sell but HTC should learn from the way they launched and the timing of the One M9. Not that the new flagship phone is not worthy of our attention, it's just that there are thermal issues, no thanks to the Qualcomm S810 processor.

Samsung Galaxy Core Prime receives Lollipop update

If you know Samsung from their history, you would be forgiven for thinking that the budget offerings of the Korean smartphone giant will probably never get a taste of Android Lollipop. But Samsung has been surprising us this year, trying to bring back excitement to the brand and doing stuff very un-Samsung-like. First, they updated the budget Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 to Lollipop. Now Lollipop has also arrived for another budget device, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime.

LG G4 system apps ported to the G3

Quite recently, you will remember that LG launched its newest flagship smartphone, the LG G4, with a spanking new UX based on Android 5.1. It is not sure whether LG will cascade the new interface to last year’s flagship – the LG G3 – but it has been traditional for the Korean manufacturer to at least bring some features from the flagship to the ones down the line. For now though, we have the next best thing – LG G4 apps ported for the G3.

Leaked LG G4c: smaller, lesser variation of new flagship

Just like last year's LG G3, which saw various iterations like the G3 Beat, G3 Stylus, etc, the OEMs newest flagship, the LG G4, is poised to spawn off other smaller and probably cheaper variations. A leaked image has been circulating, and it looks like it will be the temporarily-named G4c (let's hope it really is just temporary). While it may look a bit like the flagship, the specs are anything but, as it goes for lesser features, probably to be able to price it cheaper.
