Fingerprint scanners. Can’t have a flagship smartphone without one in this day and age, but the Android handhelds that do support the futuristic method of biometric authentication are often accused of shoddy, gimmicky execution. Even when done properly, the technology continues to stir up controversies, although Apple fans were very quick (and proud) to adopt

OnePlus 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 – specs comparison

After making the world wait a little longer than initially anticipated, Android’s 2014 breakout star finally entered the second chapter of its rapid and captivating evolution.

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.

Motorola Moto X 2015 preview and rumor roundup

It’s high time Motorola stepped up its game and stopped catering merely to cash-strapped audiences or power users on Verizon. That’s not only our view, and everyone else’s in love with the company’s unique designs, dedication to customization or stock, clean as a whistle Android.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3 – Specs comparison

Ladies and gentlemen, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally come. Samsung has thrown its hat in the high-end phablet ring once again, and LG is in trouble.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs Apple iPad Air – Specs comparison

Top-shelf Samsung Galaxy smartphones have been dominating Apple iPhones in raw speed, software smoothness, multitasking, accessibility and usability for years now, and that’s no longer just the biased opinion of an Android fanboy (which I am). Supported by sales numbers, as well as many nonpartisan critical reviews, Sammy’s superiority over Cupertino is on the verge

LG G3 preview and rumor roundup

Samsung’s domination over the Android landscape is possibly not as threatened as we anticipated by the likes of Sony or HTC as it is by up-and-coming Oppo and OnePlus. Yet one historical Sammy rival

Google Nexus 6 wishlist and things to expect

The Android landscape has been taken over by the spring fever, as Samsung’s Galaxy S5, HTC’s One (M8) and Sony’s Xperia Z2 lock horns with each other disputing the high-end mobile crown. But a feeling of slight unease and anticipation for something yet to come makes many a power user reluctant to settle. Settle, yeah,

HTC One (M8) vs Samsung Galaxy S5 – Specs Comparison

It’s weird, we expected both HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4’s sequels to knock our socks off, enthrall and amaze with major upgrades like Quad HD display resolutions, bonkers 4 GB RAM modules, OIS cameras and significantly boosted Snapdragon 805 processors, but at the end of the day the One (M8) and Galaxy S5… just

Samsung Galaxy S5: the good, the bad and the ugly

No one, or rather no sane person with the tiniest shred of common sense, expected Samsung’s Galaxy S5 to revolutionize the mobile landscape as we know it. There simply was no way, unless it packed fingerprint recognition, eye scanning features and the ability to cook dinner from scratch. Ultimately, it came with just one of
