One way Galaxy S6 prepares you for a future without Android

One of the main features of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is Samsung’s welcomed new take on user interface. The company has taken major steps towards making TouchWiz a lot friendlier than ever before, both when it comes to design but also preloaded features and apps. But, as Tizen Indonesia reveals, the new simplified and very appealing TouchWiz UI might not be entirely inspired from Google’s material design vision for Android. More →

HTC One M9 Review

The best (and worst) thing about the HTC One M9

The best (and worst) thing about the HTC One M9

By on March 24, 2015 at 11:56 AM.

The new and improved HTC flagship phone for the first half of 2015 has finally been weighed and measured by technology bloggers and the press. Unfortunately for HTC, however, a common thread was found throughout. Everyone seems to agree that the new HTC One M9 is a fantastic smartphone inside and out, featuring cutting-edge specs and a stunning design that outclasses almost every rival smartphone on the market.

But that stunning design is also shaping up to be a big problem for HTC. More →

Video: People are calling the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge iPhone clones – but will they bend?

Ahead of Samsung’s next-generation flagship smartphone debut, people saw leaked images of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge and called them iPhone clones. While there are clearly some indisputable similarities between the new Galaxy S6 and Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, in the end, we believe the S6 definitely isn’t the shameless iPhone ripoff some Apple fans believe it to be.

We’ll see plenty of comparisons between the Galaxy S6 lineup and Apple’s latest iPhones in the coming weeks once the new Samsung phones are released. In the meantime, one gadget reviewer set out to answer a question that will determine whether or not Samsung inadvertently copied one of people’s least favorite iPhone features: “Bendgate.” More →

New benchmark shows the HTC One M9 won’t scald your hand after all

Last week we reported on an early benchmark of the HTC One M9 that showed the phone’s surface temperature hit a scary 132 degrees Fahrenheit while undergoing the GFXBench benchmark test. HTC cautioned at the time that the device being tested did not have the final version of its software and now it’s looking like the company has been vindicated by subsequent benchmarks of the One M9.

Leak: Forget the One M9, this is the HTC phone you’ve been waiting for

4 ways Samsung’s Galaxy S6 admits that the iPhone had it right

With the Galaxy S6, it appears that Samsung has finally started to incorporate long-held iPhone features that Samsung used to just love to make fun of Apple for. Now we’re not talking about the striking aesthetic similarities between the S6 and the iPhone 6, nor are we talking about how the Galaxy S6 fingerprint set-up process looks eerily familiar to Apple’s.

No, today we’re talking about intrinsic design choices Samsung made with the S6 that essentially amount to it reversing course and conceding that the Apple’s design choices with the iPhone were the way to go all along. More →
