There’s no word on when the update will also come to the US carrier-branded models, but with HTC getting close...

The Google Play Store is undoubtedly one of the most popular mobile app hubs in the world as evidenced by the number of Android users out there. Thanks to the vast user base enjoyed by the Play Store, new findings have revealed that the Android app hub dominated Apple’s iOS App Store as far as gross downloads were concerned. However, Apple was still on top in terms of overall revenue made by the App Store which is more than 60% compared to what the Play Store generated. This tells the true story of Android where marketshare means...

Chinese manufacturer Huawei plans to keep itself very busy at the MWC this March. With the arrival of several devices like the Mate 7 Compact, Mate 8 and the P8 expected during the event, a new revelation claims that the company is also looking to unveil a new wearable and a bunch of tablets in Barcelona.

Although the smartphone industry is buzzing with reports of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9, we tend to forget that even LG has a new flagship in store – the LG G4. The company has now announced that this smartphone will officially hit the markets in Q2 2015. This effectively rules out a MWC time announcement of the smartphone, which is a little disappointing for us fans. It is possible that LG is targeting a May release for the device, much like the LG G3 which was announced around the same time last year. A rumor from...

LG marked the arrival of 2014 with smartphones like the G Pro 2 and followed it up with the launch of the LG G3. The Korean manufacturer also announced a slew of midrange devices which have collectively contributed to its success. The company has now announced that it shipped a total of 59.1 million smartphones in 2014, which is a new record in its history. Although the number is nowhere close to Samsung’s sales figures, it has been a very lucrative year for LG. The shipments are a 24% increase for the company compared to last year,...

Both in screen size and price, the Galaxy Note 12.2 is a big tablet. When it launched last year, the 32 GB Wifi model was $749.99 and the LTE model still was $899.99 directly from AT&T. While the Wifi model has now dropped down to $599.99 on Amazon, the LTE model is still $899.99. But today on eBay, the Galaxy Note 12.2 is just $379.99, albeit for a refurbished model and not new. That is still a great deal, especially on a tablet this expensive. However, while shipping is free, the seller excludes shipping to these regions: Africa Asia Cyprus Greece Mexico South...

OnePlus has started teasing a new event for tomorrow, calling it “Back to Basics”. We will have to wait till tomorrow to find out what exactly this event has in store for us, but it seems like the company is going to announce some new metal back panels as previously rumored and also provide details on the Cyanogen fiasco to its fans. We also hope to get a word on the company’s long awaited Android 5.0 ROM for the smartphone, which will officially mark the transition from the CyanogenMod based OS currently running on...

Given the news surrounding the delay of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip, it’s only natural to assume that manufacturers might delay the launch of their flagships to ensure the chipset is used on their devices. However, word out of LG’s camp suggests that the overheating concerns will not impact the launch of the recently announced G Flex 2 smartphone or the anticipated arrival of the LG G4 later this year. This is very reassuring for fans of LG smartphones as apart from LG and Xiaomi, there aren’t a lot of manufacturers...
