MWC 2015 preview – Samsung vs. HTC for the heavyweight title

Despite Sony and LG’s best efforts, the 2014 Mobile World Congress was the classic one-man show scenario.

LG G4 rumor roundup and preview – the next big thing or next best thing?

Yes, it’s a little early to put LG G3’s hotly anticipated sequel under the microscope, what with the Korean manufacturer recently confirming the G4 isn’t headed for a Mobile World Congress introduction next month. LG looked outright frantic when it echoed the “delay” compared to rumored timelines, stressing a Q2 itinerary following the direction set

HTC One M9 ‘Hima’ rumor roundup and preview

MWC 2014 recap: Android hits, misses, surprises and snubs

The Mobile World Congress, along with the association that organizes what’s generally regarded as the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, dubbed GSMA, are weird. This year’s trade fair was barely wrapped up, and the GSMA announced the winners of the 19th Annual Global Mobile awards, among which you had a one-year-old Android smartphone,

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.

Top five reasons why Samsung’s Galaxy S5 can’t please us all

It’s almost here. Yet there’s still so much about it we don’t know. Or rather, we’re unsure of. At least two primary Samsung Galaxy S5 versions (not counting sub-varieties like the Zoom or Mini) will presumably roll out at some point, but no one’s certain if both the “Standard” and “Prime” are due for announcements

Nokia X leaks continue with live images of the device

Windows Phone is dead, Tizen is dead, long live Android!

Look, there’s nothing wrong with competition. In fact, we all welcome it, regardless of personal preferences. Android geeks, Apple fanatics, Windows Phone aficionados, surviving BlackBerry supporters, we may argue all the time and each feel like we’re in possession of the universal truth, which we want bestowed on our clueless “enemies”. But when all is

MWC 2014 preview and rumor roundup: Samsung’s one-man show?

Though inaugurated in 1987, so lacking the great history and tradition of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress (previously held in Cannes) has relatively quickly established itself as the go-to global event for leading mobile players and their glitziest product announcements. Universally considered the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile

LG G Pro 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Specs Comparison
