    Nokia to Make Smartphones in 2016

    For mobile phone users of a certain vintage, Nokia holds a special place in the heart, the company was after-all the biggest cellular phone manufacturer in the world for several years. However, the Finnish giant has sort of just faded away since Microsoft bought its devices division back last year. Sure, Nokia software is doing well (HERE Maps, Z Launcher) and there has even been a tablet release, but Nokia the phone company is simply no more. More

    Is the Sony Xperia Z4 Disappointing? We Think So

    Sony has unleashed its new flagship, the Xperia Z4, but those looking for a big leap over the six month old Xperia Z3 will probably be disappointed. Indeed, the Z4 is in fact merely an incremental shift, while the disappointment will likely continue with news that the device will be exclusively sold in Sony's homeland of Japan. Note to worry though, the company says it will launch another global flagship at the end of the summer. More

    LG Readying Windows Phone Smartphone

    Windows Phone seems to be in a rut at the moment. Microsoft's mobile operating system is not growing, keeping a solid base in emerging markets but simply not catching Android or iOS. Windows 10 could help to change that, but Microsoft needs more major manufacturers to get behind the platform. HTC basked WP last year with the HTC One M8 for Windows Phone, and now another major brand is returning to the OS. More

    OnePlus has only been with us for two years, but the company has come a long way.

    Nexus 4 Receiving Android 5.1 Lollipop Now

    We find it pretty impressive that Google updated the Nexus 4 to Android 5.0 Lollipop back in November, after-all the handset is nearly three years old. Of course, one of the perks of the stock Android Nexus smartphones is that they are Google's babies and always first in line for new Android builds. The same goes for the Android 5.1 Lollipop roll out, which is now making its way to the aging LG built Nexus 4. More

    ZTE Nubia Z9 Render Points to Galaxy S6 like Screen

    While Samsung has been accused of copying other manufacturers ideas in the past (Apple has successfully sued the company twice), other companies copy the South Korean giant too (Apple included). China is of course the hot bed of copied products, but it still surprises us when one of the big boys does it. Which brings us to ZTE, the company is about to launch its Nubia Z9 flagship, and there is something familiar about it. More

    Sharp Announces 5.5-inch 4K Smartphone Screen

    While plenty of manufacturers are still using 1080p screens for flagships (HTC's One M9 springs to mind), the fact is the technology is becoming mid-range as more and more companies turn to Quad HD. The lowly 720p resolution (which is still pretty darn good) is now reserved for budget handsets, while anything below is almost not worth looking at outside of entry level. More

    In many ways, the Samsung Galaxy A series of smartphones was a pointer to where the company was going to go with its spiffing new Galaxy S6 flagship. Drafted in after the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4 went metal, the Galaxy A devices are Sammy?s mid-range/budget devices with a premium twist. We have heard before that there will be new additions to the line-up this summer, and it seems the first, the Galaxy A8 is near release. More
