For the first time in many years, mobile consumers seem to overwhelmingly approve of a next-gen Samsung flagship. The Galaxy S6 and particularly the S6 Edge are (almost) all they could have been, with metal frames (finally!), robust Gorilla Glass back covers, uber-crisp displays, powerful yet frugal processors, highly competent OIS cameras and smoother than ever software. Still, haters gonna hate. Fueling the muffled criticism, Sammy removed external storage support, shrunk down battery capacity and, above all, “forgot” water protection....

BBM hasn’t been much in the news lately. The last time we heard about it was when it was reported to be getting an Android Wear app. Despite skepticism from the public initially, the app has proven to be quite successful for the Canadian manufacturer. A new report now tells us that BBM for Android has successfully surpassed 100 million downloads on the Play Store. This still doesn’t tell us about the active users who are involved with the app though, so we’re not sure if these numbers mean a whole lot at this point....

OnePlus has just announced that its One smartphone will start shipping out to 16 new countries of Europe. This comes over 10 months after the smartphone went up for sale, so the users in the region have been made to wait quite a while to get the smartphone officially.

Monument Valley by Ustwo is one of the most popular Indie games to hit mobile app hubs in recent memory. And quite aptly, the game has now received the “Grand Prix” prize for the best mobile game of 2014 at the 11th annual International Mobile Gaming Awards. It’s no surprise that Monument Valley took home the honors amidst 1,000 other applicants. I’ve personally been a fan of the game and so have millions of others casual mobile gamers. There has been some criticism about the game for its lack of enough levels,...

Motorola’s latest budget handset, the Moto E is now up for grabs in the U.S. for a price of $149.99.

At $149.99, the Moto E is a great value, especially considering the fact that it comes with support for 4G LTE networks by default. The smartphone is a decent upgrade over the predecessor and comes with a 4.5 inch 960 x 540 resolution display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB of internal...

Google has finally decided to give its web version of the Contacts application a redesign, keeping all the new changes with Android in mind. This app has been somewhat hiding beneath Gmail and is not known to all. The Mountain View developers will hope that changes with this new update as we can see a flurry of Material Design elements on board. Perhaps the most interesting addition is the way contacts are handled now. We all have several duplicate contacts on our list and Google has now made it easier to merge them or get rid of them...
