Here’s our first big rumor about Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

It’s way too early for next-gen Nexus smartphone rumors, but a wild report has already emerged out of China many months before Google’s expected launch date for a new Nexus phone. The successor of the Nexus 6 — which we won’t call Nexus 7 just yet, because that would simply be a strange smartphone name considering Google has used it for tablets so far — might be made by an Android device maker from China, according to a post on Weibo posted by someone with knowledge of the matter that was recently quoted by GizmoChina.

Galaxy S6 already dominates MWC… and the show hasn’t even started

Samsung has already released a plethora of Galaxy S6 teaser videos before its March 1st event gets underway, while at the same time hinting at future features of the phone in official blog posts describing some of the technologies it uses for top devices. The company has also started building up anticipation for the handset in the U.S. with help of three of the top four carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung has also started putting up Galaxy S6 signage — lots of it— in Barcelona, Spain, with several days to go until the phone is officially announced. More →

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Moto E: Design and Price

Motorola promotes its $150 low-end phone by bashing the iPhone 6 Plus

Motorola promotes its $150 low-end phone by bashing the iPhone 6 Plus

One of the problems that affected certain iPhone 6 Plus models soon after launch was related to a main selling point of any iPhone: its build quality. Some users discovered their iOS phablets can bend under pressure during regular use, and there were plenty of videos showing how easily the phone bends in certain situations.

Even though that scandal quickly died down, people still take shots at Apple for its “Bendgate” issue, and now it’s Motorola’s turn to have a little fun at the expense of the Cupertino-based company. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: How Samsung might leave rivals in the dust

Samsung will soon unveil two Galaxy S6 versions, hardly secrets for anyone who’s been closely following the numerous Galaxy S6 leaks that hit the web in the past few months, and there are plenty of reasons to get excited about the handsets. The phones will have a great new design, a better camera than any other Galaxy models, and significantly less bloatware — at least according to Samsung’s own recent teasers coupled with some of the most recent reports.

On top of that, there’s one more reason to get excited about Samsung’s new creation, as the phone might be significantly faster than any top flagship from the competition, including the iPhone 6 and the upcoming HTC One M9. More →

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

By on February 26, 2015 at 9:55 AM.

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one. The company practically came from out of nowhere and skyrocketed to the top of the smartphone market in just a few short years, quickly becoming the No. 1 vendor in the world by shipment volume. Of course, the company borrowed a lot from Apple along the way, and it made a reputation for itself as a copycat as a result.

Companies borrow from each other all the time, of course, but Samsung was probably a bit more blatant about it than it should have been — see this secret 132-page guide to copying the iPhone that Samsung made back in 2010 for an example.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →

Huge leak: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured for the first time

If you thought the Galaxy S6 model that’ll sport a curved display would get similar software features as Samsung’s Note Edge phablet, then you might be in for another surprise. As SamMobile reports, the Galaxy S6 Edge might lack the special Edge functions available on the Galaxy Note Edge, as Samsung has apparently chosen a different approach to such displays.

Even more interestingly, a handset said to be the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge Samsung intends to announce this coming Sunday has just been pictured for the first time More →

There’s plenty of buzz surrounding recent leaks and rumors suggesting that Samsung’s next-generation flagship phone, the Galaxy S6, is shaping up to be another iPhone copy from the South Korean electronics giant. Nothing is certain until the handset is unveiled this coming Sunday, of course, and if the new S6 is an iPhone copy, we’re not so sure that’s entirely a bad thing.

Speaking of copying, still have some time to wait between when the Galaxy S6 is announced and released, but anxious fans can make their current smartphone look like a Galaxy S6 right now. More →

Some disappointed Android fans don’t want to believe recent HTC One M9 leaks are real

Are the recently leaked videos of the HTC One M9 just part of an elaborate con by HTC to trick us into being disappointed before blowing us away with a completely redesigned monster smartphone next week? That is what one disappointed Android fan is saying in the wake of Tuesday’s massive leak of HTC’s One M9 promotional videos, which left them feeling that HTC had essentially mailed it in with its upcoming flagship phone.
