By Luke Jones on Thursday September 10, 2015

When we first heard about the Moto Bounce a few months ago we called it as the next Motorola/Verizon DROID device. Yeah we are pretty much patting ourselves on the back here as the device that has since been known as the Moto X Force is reportedly going to be announced as the new Verizon DROID Turbo 2 in the next few months.

By Luke Jones on Thursday September 10, 2015

If you blinked during Apple's iPhone/iPad/Apple TV announcement yesterday you would have likely missed the launch of a new iPad Min... the iPad Mini 4. Wait, you may be thinking that there was not iPad Mini 4 announcement at all, but trust us there is a new model of Apple's small slate and it was briefly shown in the new iPad price list.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday September 09, 2015

How do you keep what is an incremental update fresh and exciting, something consumers want to buy? It is a problem Apple has tackled in recent years with its iPhone s devices and 2015's iPhone 6s is certainly no different as like its predecessors it does not chance anything in terms of aesthetics.

Up Close with the iPhone 6s Plus
By Luke Jones on Wednesday September 09, 2015

What is Apple's flagship device, is it?s the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus? Both were launched today by the largest tech company in the world and the answer to the question is that both handsets are flagships. The iPhone 6s is the company's sales driver, the smartphone that most people will buy, but the iPhone 6s Plus is the larger and more potently spec'd of the two.

Apple iPad Pro Launches
By Luke Jones on Wednesday September 09, 2015

Apple has launched the iPad Pro today, the large screen tablet that the company says revolutionizes the slate market, although really it?s just Apple's take on the Microsoft Surface Pro. That's not a flippant comment either as the Surface Pro is excellent and from what we have seen of the iPad Pro so far, it is also excellent and very feature rich.

Lenovo Vibe X3 Passes TENAA
By Luke Jones on Monday September 07, 2015

Lenovo rolled out a bunch of new smartphones at IFA last week, but the company left one behind to launch this week. The Vibe X3 is actually not new to us as it was first leaked way back in February and was not launched, leading us to think it arrived as something else. Not so however as Lenovo is now pushing the Vibe X3 to release.

HTC needs some buzz and it needs a hit device. The ailing company is losing money month on month as sales have collapsed, even for the fantastic (if a little stale) One M9 flagship. The Taiwanese giant will roll the dice again with the HTC Aero, a smartphone with reported flagship quality that will hopefully usher in a new dawn of success for the company.

By Luke Jones on Monday September 07, 2015

Last week we reported on the Nokia C1, the company's first foray back into the smartphone world after the Lumia division was purchased by Microsoft. The leak last week revealed a computer generated render of the C1 and did not give away too much in terms of finer design details.

By Luke Jones on Friday September 04, 2015

Things really are going from bad to worse for HTC. Sales continue to decline and the company is losing money quarter after quarter, as was confirmed with HTC's financials for the last month.
