Let’s face it, we live in a tech world where bigger is considered better. And Samsung has been a long advocate of this policy with its smartphones and its displays. But according to new sources, the company’s upcoming Galaxy Alpha smartphone could feature a miserly 4.8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, the same as the two year old Galaxy S III. This has clearly taken us by surprise considering that Samsung is supposedly touting this to be its first metal clad handset to launch in recent times. Keeping...

LG has just shown off its latest tablet/notebook hybrid which is also part of its popular Tab Book series. The device has a keyboard embedded beneath the display which can be popped up as you can see from the image above. We’ve seen a few devices like these, including the most recent Tab Book from LG which was running Windows 8.1, so most of the design and hardware seen here is identical. As for the specs, the Tab Book packs an Intel Core i5 4200U CPU clocked at 2.6 GHz and the Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU. This is PC level hardware,...

The Xperia Z2 might be Sony’s current flagship, but the Japanese manufacturer has mostly ignored it when it comes to updates to Android 4.4.4, instead choosing to update the Xperia Z1 and Z1 Compact instead.

Automattic, the people behind WordPress have just launched a new app on the Google Play Store called Selfies. And it does exactly what it’s supposed to – taking selfies. Users can capture their precious selfies and filter them under a particular category and even browse through selfies taken by the users. Understandably, user base is pretty slim at the moment given that it’s still a relatively new app, but it could catch on pretty quickly. If you’re one for apps like Instagram, Snapchat etc, you will take an instant...

The LG G Vista smartphone from Verizon has been part of several leaks over the past few weeks. And all this while, we were of the impression that the smartphone would be an exclusive to the carrier. But that changed over the weekend, with a user manual suggesting that the device will launch through AT&T as well with the same moniker. This is good news for the customers as LG is offering multiple options to purchase its upcoming smartphone in the U.S. The leaked user manual shows a mockup of the smartphone in question with AT&T...

Even though Motorola and Google are no longer part of a union, there have been reports of the two companies working closely for the development of future products.

As expected, the AT&T branded HTC Desire 610 is available starting today. Much like the smartphone’s overseas pricing, AT&T is only asking for $199.99 off contract or $0.99 if you’re willing to sign a two year agreement.
