Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: The results of this speed test were completely unexpected
Forget everything you think you know... check out this speed test that shows how these flagship phones compete in the real world
Apple is expected to launch new iPhone 6s models this fall, in line with its typical new iPhone releases, and some rumors have already detailing several of the features expected on these next-generation devices. For example, one analyst who has been accurate with iPhone predictions in the past said recently that Apple will launch only new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models this fall, and that the company might skip the expected iPhone 6s naming scheme and jump directly to iPhone 7. Meanwhile, a wild guess from Taiwan-based supply chain sources who spoke to Digitimes suggests a scenario that is almost impossible to believe. More →
LG on Tuesday finally unveiled the G4, its newest Android flagship handset that’s supposed to fight against some impressive rivals, including the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9.

LG on Tuesday took the wraps off its new G4 flagship smartphone that’s set to go head-to-head with the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9. As expected, the new device features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a 16-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM, a removable 3,000 mAh battery and a microSD card slot. In this way, LG has kept two of the features that some Android fans have complained about Samsung removing from the Galaxy S6. More →
When it comes to flagship smartphones, there are basically three main contenders — though a potential fourth was just unveiled on Tuesday morning by LG. Until we’ve spent some time with the G4, however, the Galaxy S6 (and S6 edge), HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 are as good as it gets for discerning smartphone users looking for the cream of the crop.
There has been extensive testing since the One M9 and Galaxy S6 debuted earlier this year, and we’ve seen a common theme emerge: the Galaxy S6 crushes the competition when it comes to raw power and the iPhone 6 is the best in the business when it comes to gaming.
But do these test results carry over to real life? More →

Android has a checkered past when it comes to stability. The platform has made great strides in recent years, as have many third-party app developers, but there are still troubling issues that rear their ugly head from time to time. As such, the last thing we need is a botched update from Google that comes along and ruins things, even for users on KitKat and Lollipop, which are the most stable Android builds out there.
But alas… More →
If there’s one thing that just about everyone agrees on, it’s that Tidal’s launch event last month was a complete public relations debacle. It goes without saying that trotting a bunch of incredibly wealthy musicians on stage to pitch a music streaming service that’s pricier than what’s being offered by rivals such as Spotify and Pandora was not the best way to make a first impression. However, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, new Tidal CEO Peter Tonstad said the company has no regrets about its choices for the launch event, which he described as “absolutely fantastic.” More →
One of the more interesting tidbits to emerge from Apple’s recent earnings conference call is that the Apple Watch may not be as profitable a product as some initially thought, at least at first. If you recall, one analyst went so far as to boldly state that Apple’s new wearable might very well be Apple’s most profitable product ever, with gross margins falling in the 60% or higher range.
Apple is far from meeting Apple Watch demand, Tim Cook said on Monday during an earnings call,according to a transcript posted on SixColors. The company already managed to ship more Apple Watch units in the first weekend, and it’s working hard to improve supply. However, that means the Watch won’t be officially available in more international markets until a lot later than anticipated. More →
Best Buy on Monday announced it’ll support a new wireless payments technology both in stores and in a version of its mobile app, with the latter option available immediately, despite not having been eager to do so in the past.
Stephen Hawking is incredibly cool for a whole host of reasons and one of them is his terrific sense of humor. During an appearance at the Sydney Opera House over the weekend, the legendary physicist was asked what his advice would be for any young fans who are still heartbroken because Zayn Malik had left the boy band One Direction last month. Hawking not only delivered a funny and empathetic response but he even found a way to tie it into his primary field of study as well. More →
