4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

Call it part of the burden of smartphone ownership: you simply can’t do without certain accessories.

Today, we’ve got four limited-time Amazon deals to tell you about, and you won’t want to miss them. More →

iPhone 6 triggers record number of Android switchers

Apple has proven that time and time again as its dual-core iPhones with 1GB of RAM continue to slaughter quad- and octa-core rivals in performance tests. Meanwhile on the Android side of things, specs on recent smartphones have often appeared quite similar on paper.

As we see in head-to-head performance comparisons, however, not all Android phones are created equal. More →
