WTF of the week: Android phone maker says Apple is Hitler

Billionaires often have a tendency to, shall we say, speak their minds freely. This apparently rings true for Chinese billionaires who are about to jump into the smartphone market, because LeTV CEO Jia Yueting just dropped a pretty big bombshell on his verified Weibo account.

We’ve seen rivals take aim at Apple in the past in an effort to generate some buzz. For example, Samsung regularly mocks iPhone users in its TV commercials. As common as it is to jab Apple, however, we have never seen a company go this far. More →

10 things the Galaxy S6 can do that the iPhone 6 can’t

Beginning in two weeks on April 10th, we’re in store for an epic battle of the sixes. Apple’s iPhone 6 burst onto the scene this past September and helped Apple rack up more profit in the holiday quarter than any other company has ever earned in a three-month period. iPhone 6 sales are still going strong according to estimates, but the phone will finally see some real competition next month when the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge hit store shelves.

All three of these phones are fantastic options, but there are a few key features on Samsung’s new handsets that could make iPhone 6 owners a bit jealous. In this post, you’ll find 10 of the most impressive things the Galaxy S6 can do that Apple’s latest iPhone can’t. More →

With just two weeks left until Apple fans can finally head to their local Apple Stores to try on the Apple Watch, excitement is definitely building — though no one is more excited than BGR founder Jonathan Geller, who can’t wait to get his hands on Apple’s first foray into wearables and luxury goods.

Meet the most stunning smartphone you’ll never own

The dream of a stunning smartphone with a bezel-free display has finally been realized… and you’ll never get to enjoy it.

Have you ever heard of Oppo? If you live in the United States, the answer is probably “no” unless you’re a pretty hardcore Android fan. Based in Guangdong, China, Oppo Electronics is one of several smartphone vendors making waves in the East that haven’t yet washed ashore here in the West.

Once you get a look at the company’s upcoming new smartphone, however, Oppo will become a name you won’t soon forget. More →

A top designer left Apple to build Apple Watch’s first real competitor: Olio Model One

There are a few main reasons the Apple Watch has generated so much buzz. First and foremost, it’s an Apple product and nothing is as buzzy as an Apple product. Of course, the Apple Watch also marks Apple’s first foray into uncharted territory: luxury goods and wearables. Finally, the Apple Watch is really the first smartwatch to sport a beautiful premium design.

And who better to intro the Apple Watch’s first true competitor than a former top Apple designer who left the company to start his own business? More →

Google Maps for Android just got a great new feature iPhone users will be jealous of

Google Maps for Android and Google Maps for the iPhone may never have true feature parity. This is due in part to the limitations Apple puts in place on third-party application developers, but Google also seems to reserve some features and design elements solely for users of its own mobile platform.

One such feature was just added to Google Maps on Wednesday evening, and iPhone users should definitely be jealous. More →

Galaxy S6 first impressions: Why can’t I find anything to complain about?

What on Earth is going on right now?

Smartphones are like anything else. When you pick one up it’s fresh and new, and the novelty overpowers everything else. You’re so excited to have this new gadget you’ve been waiting for that you can’t even see its flaws, serious though they may be. Then, over time, the novelty wears off and the flaws become more pronounced, gnawing at you each and every time you pick up your phone. And that’s when the complaining begins.

It has now been about a month since I first used Samsung’s new Galaxy S6… so why can’t I find anything to complain about? More →
