Best 4G LTE-capable Android tablets available today stateside

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.

LG G4 vs G4 Stylus vs G4c vs G4 Beat/G4s – specs comparison

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

HTC finally welcoming Desire 820 owners to Android 5.0 Lollipop

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.

Android Lollipop now on 23.5% of all Android devices

#Android 5.0+ #Lollipop is supposedly running on 23.5% of all Android devices out there, according to October’s Android distribution figures.

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.

It is found that

Lollipop now running on 21% of all Android devices

#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%

[Video] BlackBerry Venice with Android Lollipop shown off

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

Samsung Galaxy A8 vs Galaxy A7 vs A5 vs A3 – specs comparison

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.

AT&T HTC Desire Eye getting the Android 5.0 update

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.
