Verizon counts down to the next DROID smartphone

Verizon is counting down to something, but of course it isn't telling us exactly what. But given what we've been hearing from the rumor mill so far, there is little doubt that this would be the next Verizon DROID, which we know as the DROID Turbo. This tease does nothing to confirm or deny any of the leaks and rumors that we already have, but it does give us something solid to lean on: an actual date for the unveiling of the device.

T-Mobile to launch the Xperia Z3 on October 29

The Xperia Z3 is coming to town and it will be stopping by T-Mobile first.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact arrives in the US carrier-free

Sony has just opened the gates to allow folks in the US to purchase the very new Xperia Z3 Compact mini flagship. But unlike its new strategy with the bigger Xperia Z3, Sony is using it's older business model of selling the device directly and without carrier support and subsidy.

OPPO N3: 7075 aluminium alloy, electric rotating camera

Although the scheduled media event is still a good few weeks away, OPPO isn't missing a beat in trying to tease its fans with what the OPPO N3 might be.

Sony Xperia Z3 passes Coca Cola, Nutella tests (Yum!)

Enough of the bendgate scandals. To test the real strength of a smartphone, drop it in water but not for too long. The newest phones in the market today boast of being all waterproof aside from being dustproof and drop-resistant. Just make sure the phone is really 'waterproof' and not just water-resistant lest you want to be this lady in South Africa who wasted $800 on her Sony Xperia Z1 which she used in water.

LG G3 locked bootloader workaround now available

The LG G3 is truly a flagship device in all senses of the term. It’s stylish and elegant, and the Korean manufacturer spared no cost on the specs and hardware. That is why we like it so much. And the software – well, we think LG does one of the best versions of tweaked Android out there, bar none.
