But of course, the thickness alone won’t sell a smartphone and Gionee is mindful of that. The handset...

Surprisingly, the phone was safely tucked inside the user’s jeans when this happened, so there was no external force applied. However, OnePlus assures its customers that smartphones coming out of its factories undergo proper...

Popular display maker Sharp just announced the Aquos Crystal smartphone earlier today in Japan sporting a very unique design and extremely slim side bezels.
