If you’ve been following our website lately, chances are you’ve already purchased a tab… or ten. You’re only human after all, and probably couldn’t resist the temptation of a stellar bargain, the best 7 inch+ gamers around, the endurance champions or ultra-high-res media streamers. But there’s one market segment we haven’t tackled in a while.
And just like that, LG managed to overshadow arch-rival Samsung for a change. Unfortunately, product confusion and brand dilution aren’t departments one would want to “prevail” in, especially when an exceedingly dense mid to high-end roster could generate serious market cannibalization issues. Even at first glance, there’s plenty to underline the “standard” G4’s superiority over
For the past 3 days, we’ve been receiving a lot of emails from Samsung Galaxy S5 owners especially who recently updated their phones to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Among the most common are issues about the WiFi that keeps disconnecting / reconnecting and faster battery drain. While these problems seem unrelated, they actually are and they
Over the coming days, a new Kickstarter campaign for the #Superbook will go live, bringing the power of a computer to your Android 5.0+ running smartphone. This is a $99 device that comes with a laptop shell and an array of Android specific hardware buttons. All you have to do is connect your smartphone via
The #HTC #Desire820 smartphone is now getting an update to Android 5.0 #Lollipop, which is slightly surprising given how long the customers have been made to wait. For those unaware, this is a midrange offering from the Taiwanese manufacturer that has been available since November last year. The Desire 820 has been sold in the U.S. through
#Android 5.0+ #Lollipop is supposedly running on 23.5% of all Android devices out there, according to October’s Android distribution figures. While this figure is in no way good news to #Google, it’s certainly an improvement over last month’s numbers. Unfortunately for Android 5.0, with Marshmallow gradually rolling out to devices now, its marketshare might actually
#Android smartphones have a variety of display locking/unlocking methods with pattern locking being one of the most popular. A few researchers at the University of Texas have now found a major loophole in Android 5.0 running devices that could let anybody through the pattern lock screen within a matter of few minutes. It is found that
A user at the Toronto Film Festival was spotted with what is very likely to be the upcoming #Android powered #BlackBerryVenice slider smartphone. We’re being treated to a blurrycam image here, but from the little that we can see, it seems like the device is running the stock Android SMS app, known as Messenger (the blue
#Google issues #Android distribution figures every month, giving us a good idea of where OS versions stand in terms of overall marketshare. This month’s figures have just been posted by the Mountain View giant, showing marginal increase for Android Lollipop compared to last month. In August, Android 5.0+ was shown to be running on 18.1%
#BlackBerry as we all know is all set for the unveiling of the #Venice flagship, running #Android #Lollipop. A new leak is now giving us a more detailed look of the handset, revealing a design identical to the BlackBerry Passport from last year. It’s quite clear at this point that the onboard keyboard will be one
We recently came across a very short video of the #BlackBerry #Venice which showed off the design of the handset. The upcoming BlackBerry smartphone with #Android #Lollipop has now received hands-on treatment ahead of the smartphone’s release. The device is exactly as we saw in the renders and leaks, telling us that this is indeed the
After (hopefully) helping you better understand the “deal” with LG’s far too similar mid-range G4 derivations, our mission of clarifying convoluted Android smartphone families enters a new phase. Today, we’re all about praising the Samsung Galaxy A roster’s full-metal diversity. Yes, for once, you’ll see us endorse so-called “brand dilution” instead of bitching and complaining.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 users in the UK will be disappointed to know that the company has decided to skip the Android 5.0 update for the two smartphones. Both smartphones were released in 2012, so it’s not really a surprise to see that the company isn’t sending out the updates
The HTC Desire Eye smartphone has just started getting the Android 5.0 update at long last. This isn’t exactly a flagship level handset from the Taiwanese manufacturer, but it’s good to see that the update is finally arriving, albeit a little too late in the day. The information was given away by HTC’s Mo Versi
