A few months ago Google announced that they were purchasing Songza, the service that curated different music playlists depending on your activity. For that time, Google was not doing much in the user-facing area. Now, along with a Material Design update, Songza is now integrated into the Play Music app. This is only available for All Access subscribers, so if you just use the free portion of Play Music, it isn’t available. But if you do have it, you’ll be offered the ability to play music during a certain time of day, mood,...

HTC has accidentally revealed the existence of the Desire 820 Mini smartphone through its website. The device was spotted on the company’s Chinese online store and has since been taken down, leaving no doubt that this is indeed a real device. Oddly, this “mini” variant of the Desire 820 is shown to be packing a 5 inch display, which is not small by any stretch of the imagination. The handset will reportedly feature a 720p resolution display, a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and most...

The Sony Xperia Z3 is available for purchase via T-Mobile USA starting today. The handset can be bought with the $0 down payment plan which will set you back by $26.25 per month for a period of two years. This roughly translates to an off contract pricing of $630. The Xperia Z3 is a stellar performer as its top notch internal hardware is accompanied with a sturdy exterior which comes with an IP68 certification making it the immune to water and dust damage. The Xperia Z3 comes with a 5.2 inch 1080p display, a 20.7-megapixel camera on...

With the Nexus 9 already available on pre-order, Amazon has started listing the official cases and covers meant for the tablet. The much rumored keyboard case is listed on the site with a price tag of $129.99, which is quite steep for an accessory. Amazon is also selling the standard case/cover for the Nexus 9 at $39.99. This is more like the Apple Smart Cover and Google has also enabled some nifty software features which work handily with the cover. It seems like customers of the Nexus 9 will have a lot more spending to do in order...

It’s not new information that the Nexus 6 comes with the Ambient Display feature. But until now, we had very little understanding of what this feature brings to the device. But thanks to a new leaked screenshot, we’re getting a good look of what Ambient Display brings to the Nexus 6. In theory, this is nothing but a rebranded version of Moto Display, which allows users to interact with the device better. The official Play Store listing for the Nexus 6 mentions that the standby time of the device is about 250 hours with Ambient...

The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is now up on pre-order via Sony Mobile USA. The tablet has been priced at $499.99, which is not the cheapest price we’ve seen for a mini tablet. But customers can seek solace in the fact that the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact isn’t the conventional mini tablet that we see around us. Packing a flagship level hardware, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is easily the best mini tablet money can buy right now. Sony will officially start shipping the device from November 2, so there’s still some waiting...

Samsung has just launched the Galaxy S5 Plus smartphone with a Snapdragon 805 SoC, bringing it on par with the current crop of flagships such as the Galaxy Note 4 and the Motorola Nexus 6. Not surprisingly, this is pretty much the only difference between the Galaxy S5 Plus and the regular Galaxy S5 which was announced back in February. As of this moment, there’s no word on which markets will receive the Galaxy S5 Plus, but considering that the company is rolling out the Galaxy Note 4 in most global markets this month, we won’t...

A seller on eBay is offering the AT&T model of the Galaxy S5 for just $419.99. This is the unlocked variant of course, which means you can add any compatible GSM SIM card of your choice to operate the device. The smartphone will be supplied in an open box, which is usually the case when devices arrive back to the retailer or carrier. This doesn’t mean that the device is used though, as the smartphone is still brand new. If you can look over this tiny aspect, the Galaxy S5 for $420 is an excellent deal, considering it’s...
