The Verizon branded Motorola Droid Turbo went official yesterday. And unsurprisingly, it is the best handset in the market right now, thanks to its proportionate size coupled by the powerful internals. It is now being said that Motorola could be looking to bring the handset to global shores as well, indicating that it won’t be an exclusive to the U.S. Motorola is already sending invites for a November 5 event in Brazil, with what appears to be a Droid Turbo shown on the teaser. However, it is being said that the smartphone will...

The Google Hangouts app is now receiving the ability to make free one minute voice calls to 25 countries. Hangouts currently lets users make domestic voice calls for free, but customers needed credit on their account to make overseas calls. Keeping that in mind, Google’s decision to allow 1 minute voice calls abroad at no cost is certainly going to be well received. While this won’t necessarily let you have an actual conversation with your loved ones, it’s long enough to convey short messages. It is said that Google...

The CEO of WhatsApp has officially confirmed that the much expected voice calling feature will not launch until early 2015. Speaking at the Code/Mobile event, he said that the company is facing some technical hurdles in bringing this idea to fruition. According to the CEO Jan Koum, this addition will not clash with Facebook Messenger which already has a voice calling feature over WiFi.

A few days ago we told you about Verizon’s intentions to carry the developer edition Galaxy Note 4. And the smartphone has gone official today with a price tag of $699.99. This is the no contract version of the smartphone, so you’ll have to shell out the full retail price if you want the Galaxy Note 4 on Verizon with an unlockable bootloader and no carrier bloatware. Apart from this, the Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition is pretty much the same as the standard model and packs a 5.7 inch Quad HD display, a 2.7 GHz Snapdragon...

Oppo has just announced the follow up to the Oppo N1 in the form of the N3. And unsurprisingly, the highlight of the device still remains the camera. But unlike the N1 where the camera on the back was manually rotatable, the N3 does it on its own thanks to a dedicated motor installed on the device. The company has used a 16-megapixel Schneider Kreuznach sensor here which is a significant improvement over the 13-megapixel snapper from the predecessor. Oppo has been mindful of the overall size too as the smartphone now packs a 5.5 inch...

As a result of this, LG has posted operating profits of $440 million or 461 billion Korean Won which is a significant improvement over Q2. Samsung is expected to post results for Q3 fairly soon, although it has cautioned investors that the numbers might not...

Some interested buyers of the OnePlus One received another setback on Monday when the company’s website refused to keep up with the demand for the smartphone. As originally promised, OnePlus started taking pre-orders for the smartphone in batches to avoid any server related issues. But these server issues essentially meant that the site was down during the one hour pre-order window, leaving a majority of the users clueless. As expected, the company has tendered an apology explaining what exactly happened. That doesn’t change...
