    Android M, the Ultimate Guide

    Google dropped Android M on us at the company?s I/O developer's event today, and while the software will not be released until later in the year, Google was kind enough to give us all a detailed breakdown of what is in store. With Android 5.0 Lollipop only seven months old and feeling pretty darn fresh, we expect Android M to wow us and bring something new to the party. Luckily the software really does that and is a pretty rich overhaul of the system, even if it is unlikely to do Android?s fragmented platform any good in terms of unification. More

    Asus Confirms ZenFone Selfie for Computex Next Week

    Earlier this week there were reports that Asus is working on a new smartphone that would be called the ZenFone Selfie and be oriented just how its name suggests.

After those early reports, Asus has now all but confirmed that the ZenFone Selfie is real and that it is incoming. More

    Here's why Sony is Avoiding Quad HD Screens

    The shift to Quad HD screen technology is well underway. Starting last year with the LG G3, most major Android vendors have at least one device with 1440p displays, but Sony is one company that is sticking to 1080p Full HD for its flagships. The recently launched Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z3+ both came with 1080p and it seems the company is going to stick with the older technology for a while longer yet. More

    Lumia 520 is the most Popular Windows Phone Handset

    Windows Phone isn't really the platform you go to for flagship kicks. Sure, the HTC One M8 for Windows is a fine high end device, as are the Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 at a push, but for the most part the platform is littered with budget handsets. It is a trend that started when Nokia rejuvenated Windows Phone, and it has continued in earnest since Microsoft bought the Lumia division. More

    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.
