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.

LG is the most Security Minded Android OEM
By Luke Jones on Wednesday October 14, 2015

When we think of mobile security we think of BlackBerry's BB10 or at a push iOS, we rarely consider Android because of the numerous problems the platform has had. Forced to pick the most secure manufacturer on Android we would say Samsung with its robust KNOX security suite, which is pretty spiffing. However, a new research paper out of prestigious Cambridge University in the United Kingdom disagrees.

ASUS Opens Bootloader for ZenFone 2
By Josh Dasey on Wednesday October 14, 2015

ASUS has already done a lot of good things with its ZenFone 2 range, not least offering us the chance to have well built, good looking smartphones with interesting specs and an affordable price tag. The company is now looking to get on the good side of Android enthusiasts by issuing a new tool that lets them unlock the bootloader on their ZenFone 2.

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.

AT&T Rolling Out Extensive LG G4 Update
By Josh Dasey on Friday October 09, 2015

AT&T is rolling out an over the air update for the LG G4 flagship, but this is not Android Marshmallow or anything to do with Google's platform. That does not mean this upgrade should be ignored as it brings plenty of goodies to the party, albeit under the surface. The second largest carrier in the United States says that the update is available OTA now.

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.
