The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 is now available for just $79, which is the lowest price we’ve seen on the tablet so far. The pricing is valid for the 8GB model of the tablet, so you don’t get a lot of onboard storage with the device, but it’s still a pretty good deal. The tablet comes with pretty much everything a Kindle Fire tablet can offer, including the Amazon Appstore and several other goodies such as Amazon Prime Video, Music etc. It’s no secret that Amazon’s devices are heavily reliant on the cloud, so...

LG has announced that it will be bringing the G Flex2 flagship to AT&T retail outlets starting April 24.

The smartphone is LG’s newest curved display smartphone and succeeds...

You can now get Samsung’s last year’s flagship, the Galaxy S5 for just $299.99 courtesy of a deal over at eBay. This is a seller refurbished model, but there’s no denying that the device offers great value for the price. This is the American version of the Galaxy S5 and supports LTE networks over GSM. It features a 5.1 inch 1080p display, a 16-megapixel camera on the back, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot, a 2,800 mAh battery and Android 4.4 with an update to Lollipop currently rolling out.

Google’s Android Wear platform is now getting a new update which brings forth WiFi support on compatible devices. Google has detailed the features of this update in a blog post, so we know exactly what to expect. The update will apparently introduce gesture features as well, allowing you to switch to newer notifications with a flick of your wrist. The update is supposedly beginning to rollout to the LG Watch Urbane first, with more devices expected to follow over the coming weeks. There is also support for always-on apps now,...

Sony has just announced the Xperia Z4 smartphone in Japan earlier today. The handset was expected to be unveiled anytime, but Sony took us all by surprise by showing off the device without a prior announcement. The company’s new flagship might remain limited to Japan for a while by the looks of things, although Sony wouldn’t want to keep it that way for long. The internal hardware is a little unflattering as Sony has gone with a basic 5.2 inch 1080p display panel in a time when 2K resolution displays are the norm. Other specs...

OnePlus promised to make some announcements today and hasn’t left us disappointed. The company has officially confirmed that its current flagship device, the One will be available without an invite permanently going forward. The company however had some bad news to share about the upcoming OnePlus Two flagship. The manufacturer mentioned that in order to keep up with the demand, this device will be sold through invites. This explains why the OnePlus One will be available for purchase without an invite. The company hasn’t shared...

Typically, this would be a two-part face-off. First, we’d take Sony’s newest hero device, size it up against its predecessor and explore all the changes and upgrades brought to the table. Then, we’d throw it in the cage with the Samsung Galaxy S6, fresh off a crushing win over HTC’s One M9, trying to conclude if the Xperia Z4 has enough moxie to play in the big leagues. The thing is the verdicts are so predictable, we see ourselves compelled to combine the two ordinarily separate comparisons into a joint one. Yes, Sony screwed...

The Sprint Spark variant of the Galaxy S4 is a special version of that device. Arriving 8 months after the original version, this limits Lollipop’s rollout only to people who bought the Galaxy S4 after a specific amount of time. However, with the Spark variant getting Lollipop, there’s a very high chance of the original Galaxy S4 getting Lollipop as well. For the Spark, the build number is L720TVPUCOD1. Sprint doesn’t say how big the update is, but it’s probably large, so make sure to be on Wifi. You can check...
