A closer look at the Xperia Z3, Sony’s next flagship smartphone

Sony still hasn’t found a way to effectively infiltrate the Western phone market, but that doesn’t mean the Japanese powerhouse is giving up any time soon. Our friendly neighborhood leaker @evleaks has published two new photos of what he claims to be the upcoming flagship Xperia Z3 smartphone, a phone that at first glance could easily be mistaken for an Xperia Z2. Upon further inspection, the Z3 does appear to be thinner and seems to lacks the silver trim which lined the edges of the Z2. More →

Samsung just launched a phablet with a ridiculous 7-inch screen

It’s official: we have reached the peak of phablet insanity. Samsung on Friday unveiled the latest addition to its phablet lineup. While the device officially falls under Samsung’s “Tab” product family of tablets, you’ll notice that the Galaxy Tab Q is not like normal tablets. Instead, it includes an ear speaker and a microphone, and it supports voice calling. In other words, Samsung expects you to hold this gigantic beast of a tablet up to your face to make phone calls.

Please. We beg you. Don’t. More →

Amazon Fire Phone Review

All the disgusting and terrible phones I’d rather use than Amazon’s Fire phone

All the disgusting and terrible phones I’d rather use than Amazon’s Fire phone

I honestly feel like I’m in a scene from Billy Madison.

Amazon has finally released a smartphone, and since Amazon PR won’t talk to us ever since I leaked the Amazon Kindle 2 like six years ago, I had to go buy one today in order to play with it. The radio silence also might have something to do with all of our incredible reporting detailing every single angle and feature of the phone prior to release, but… anyway.

Amazon has spent so much money on the Fire phone, it’s incredibly incredible how downright horrible it is. The project was almost forced to release years ago, and I just can’t comprehend what device we would be talking about if that had actually happened. More →

Verizon Unlimited Data Throttling

Are you a Verizon customer with unlimited data? Get ready to be throttled

Are you a Verizon customer with unlimited data? Get ready to be throttled

As we learned from a recent study, Verizon has been remarkably efficient at convincing unlimited wireless data plan holders to switch to newer, more profitable data plans. According to market research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, just 22% of Verizon’s mobile subscribers were still on unlimited data plans as of the end of the second quarter. That still leaves millions of people with unlimited plans though, and we have bad news for all of them: According to a new report, all Verizon Wireless subscribers with unlimited data plans will be subject to throttling beginning October 1st.

Windows Phone Vs iPhone

Microsoft’s mobile failure stems from a lack of understanding of the iPhone’s success

Microsoft’s mobile failure stems from a lack of understanding of the iPhone’s success

By on July 25, 2014 at 9:45 AM.

After being among the first few companies to bring smartphones to the masses with Windows Mobile, Microsoft has repeatedly failed to return to its former glory in recent years. There are a number of reasons for these repeated failures in the smartphone and tablet markets, but the broadest and most important may be the simple fact that Microsoft appears to have absolutely no idea what users want. The company has focused on unique, differentiated experiences without worrying about making them truly compelling, and it repeatedly harps on the same selling points that almost no one seems to care about.

Now, a recent post may have gotten to the root of Microsoft’s problem: The company still has no idea what made the iPhone such a massive success. More →

While the clone is based on the leaked dummy iPhone 6 units that flooded the Internet and is fully working, it’s not actually running iOS 8. Instead, it’s running an Android version that has been customized to look just like iOS. More →
