Blu Reveals Studio Energy with 4 Day Battery Life
By Josh Dasey on Thursday October 15, 2015

Florida based company Blu is one of those smartphone manufacturers that sort of bubbles under the surface, the company makes good handsets, but has not really been able to crack onto good sales. With an array of Windows and Android devices already out there Blu is looking to expand its efforts with two new smartphones. The selling point? Well, this pair of devices come with larger than normal batteries, so should in theory provide more juice.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 coming to Europe in January?
By Pablo Jimenez on Thursday October 15, 2015

We love the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, it is the best device the company makes and is pretty much a home run from top to bottom. However, when it launched the Note 5 came with a massive disappointment as it was not made available in Europe, and Samsung hasn't made any noise that the device will ever come to the Old Continent.

HTC One A9 Coming with $690 Price Tag?
By Ang Torres on Wednesday October 14, 2015

The HTC One A9 is going to be launched in one week's time and the more we hear about this smartphone the more worried we are. What was first leaked as a bleeding edge handset has since become (via benchmark results) a clear mid-ranger, which in itself is reasonable, even if we do expect more from HTC. The latest news regarding the cost of the One A9 means we are outright concerned about what HTC is playing at.

Xiaomi Mi 5 Definitely not coming Next Week
By Pablo Jimenez on Wednesday October 14, 2015

Xiaomi has scheduled a media event for October 19th, when the company will unveil a new smartphone. First reports suggested that the handset to be launched is the Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship, a handset that is actually a long time in coming. However, the wait will go on as the Mi 5 will not be launched next week at all and there are two reasons for that.

Google Exec Praises LG as a Partner
By Micah Bartos on Tuesday October 13, 2015

Huawei was the manufacturer of choice for Google's 2015 flagship Nexus 6P, but LG was also on board with the Nexus 5X, a reworked version of the 2014 Nexus 5. It is clear that Google and LG have had a good relationship through the years as this is now the third Nexus device the Korean company has built. Google executive David Burke has now confirmed that indeed the Android giant does prefer working with Korean company LG.

Motorola Force (DROID Turbo 2) Certified in China
By Ang Torres on Friday October 09, 2015

The Motorola Force is also the Motorola Kinzie and the Motorola XT1585, while consumers in the United States are probably going to call it the DROID Turbo 2. Whatever the name of this device is, it will almost certainly be a beast, at least judging by the specs that were revealed as the handset passed through China's 3C certification website.

BlackBerry Priv could be Company?s last Smartphone
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 08, 2015

We are not exactly surprised by reports today suggesting if the BlackBerry Priv is a failure it will be the last smartphone the company ever makes. On one hand it makes sense as BlackBerry's hardware sales have declines to be almost meaningless in the market, but on the other hand we heard this exact same rumor before the launch of the company's last three smartphones.

LG V10 Lands in South Korea
By Pablo Jimenez on Thursday October 08, 2015

The LG V10 really impressed us when we got to grips with it as the company?s launch event last week, a real competitor at the high end/phablet at the end of the market. The frankly tank like handset has been launched in South Korea today (October 8), the first market the device will land before making a global tour, launching in other regions.

LG V10, A Smartphone to Rival the Best
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 01, 2015

Forget the G4 Pro, LG has rolled out a new flagship that stands as a unique addition to the market with blazing specs and a standout killer feature you won't find anywhere else. The LG V10 comes with a second ticker style screen that sits atop the main panel, while elsewhere the device pushes boundaries with its high end specs and cameras. However, the big news really is that screen, so we will start there as we get up close and personal with the V10.

Some eBay Vendors Offering Nexus 6 for $300
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 01, 2015

Google announced its spiffing new smartphones this week, the flagship Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X; so what does that mean for last year?s Nexus 6? That was of course made by Motorola and it was a full on flagship handset that came with a price tag to match its amazing specs. However, now the Nexus 6 can be picked up brand new for a bargain.
