    Sony Debuts Xperia Z3+

    Sony surprised us back last month the launch of the Xperia Z4, a new underwhelming flagship from the company that would be a Japanese exclusive. That left the struggling electronics juggernaut with a flagship sized hole in the market around the world, with only last year's Xperia Z3 flying the high end banner. Sony has now updated the Xperia Z3 by announcing the Xperia Z3+, a handset that pushes the older device closer to a running pace with today?s flagships. More

    Samsung Regains Market Top Spot, While Microsoft and Sony Slip out of Top 10

    The sales numbers for the major smartphone manufacturers through the first quarter of this year have been revealed, and actually they throw up little in the way of surprise. Of course, through the fourth quarter of 2014, Apple topped the market with an unprecedented period, beating Samsung in the process. However, the Korean company has now wrestled back number one spot in the market through Q1 of this year, while Chinese companies continued to make their presence felt. More

    HTC Working on A50C, a New Desire Model Smartphone

    HTC has been very busy so far this year and has released twelve smartphones in just five months. Yes, some of those were regional specific devices, or minor variants of existing models, but nevertheless 2015 has been all hands on deck for the company. Sales have been worryingly sluggish though as the One M9 flagship failed to impress a wide consumer base. A solid mid-range device available to all could be the answer to HTC's problems (at least short term), so the HTC A50C is something to look forward to. More

    Want a cheap handset that is a bona fide smartphone, and still a pretty good one at that? Look no further than the original Motorola Moto G. Of course, we have been saying that since the handset launched two years ago, but at the moment the Moto G is even more of a bargain grab as Best Buy is selling the Verizon variant for just $19.99, and that's not with a contract by the way.

    The Galaxy Note 5 is the next major smartphone on the horizon for Samsung, and if we're being honest it is always the device we look forward to the most from the company, even over the Galaxy S flagship range. There have been rumors circulating over the last week that the Korean company will launch the Galaxy Note 5 early in an attempt to beat the iPhone 6s Plus to market.

    LG Confirms Second 2015 Flagship, G Pro 3?

    The LG G4 is a fantastic smartphone, one of the best available in fact. However, LG claimed it would be a radical change from last year's G3 and we simply do not think that it is. The company though is going to have another stab at the flagship market later in the year, so maybe that will be the completely different smartphone we were promised. More
