By Luke Jones on Friday August 28, 2015

LG announced at an earnings call early this year that it would be debuting another flagship smartphone in 2015, a phablet heavyweight to go alongside the current G4.

By Luke Jones on Friday August 28, 2015

OnePlus makes fantastic smartphones, but the company's invite system to purchase one is frustrating. It is a model that has sort of worked (the OnePlus One was a sales success), but we can't help but think the company would sell a lot more if it opened up sales. Cost cutting is the reason for the invite system, but OnePlus says it has finally cracked how to get this sales model right and soon and "aggressive invite rollout" will happen.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday August 26, 2015

Some Wednesday afternoon advice... you should consider buying an Amazon Fire Phone. Ok, before you laugh we want to say we mean it, you should get this handset, which admittedly was one of the greatest tech flops in history. A disaster of epic proportions, Amazon's first smartphone was not a failure because it sucked, so as it is now only $130 (with some incentives too) we just think it is worth a look a year on from its release.

HTC's next smartphone flagship is starting to show up all the time in leaks and reports, and the latest details the monster specs of the device.
