By Luke Jones on Thursday August 28, 2014

HTC has been expanding its product lines of late and is likely to continue doing so with the upcoming Nexus 8 tablet for Google and a HTC smartwatch.

LG unveiled the latest variant of its G3 range a few weeks ago in the form of the G3 Stylus, and that handset has now been officially rolled out, giving us the lowdown on its specs and design.

LG?s L Series is a well-received range of smartphones that nestles nicely into the budget market, giving the likes of Samsung and Motorola some Android competition.

That has changed today with the launch of a couple of new L Series handsets.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday August 19, 2014

HTC is really starting to beef up its smartphone line with a variety of devices as the company looks to get back on the good side of consumers after a worrying few years of decline.
