New leak purportedly reveals the OnePlus Two’s killer specs

One of the most unexpected Android handsets of last year was the OnePlus One, thanks in no small part to its high-end specs and unbelievably cheap price. And now it looks like the Chinese startup has more mobile ambitions for this year. The company confirmed recently that a OnePlus Two is already in the works and a new report from GizChina seems to reveal more details about the handset. More →

An easy guide to freeing up a huge chunk of storage on your iPhone

iPhone 6 Plus Review

The best and worst things about the iPhone 6 Plus

The best and worst things about the iPhone 6 Plus

By on January 16, 2015 at 12:05 PM.

BGR Media president Jonathan Geller loves the iPhone 6 Plus. And he hates it. And he loves it. Personally, I’m not a big fan. The phone itself is sleek and the software and surrounding ecosystem and the best in the business, but truth be told, it’s not a very good phablet. As I discussed at length in my Galaxy Note 4 review, the iPhone 6 Plus is just a bigger iPhone 6. That seems like a fairly obvious statement, but the truth of the matter is that Apple seemingly put precious little thought into phablet users’ needs and wants, and instead just checked a box next to “iPhone with a big screen.”

Sales have been phenomenal thus far thanks to pent-up demand for an iPhone phablet, but I think in the future we’ll see a bit more separation between Apple’s mid-sized iPhones and its supersized iPhones. The differences might be mainly software based, but Apple will soon make much better use of its larger canvases.

In the meantime, the iPhone 6 Plus has been out for almost four months now, and it’s time to take a closer look at Apple’s first phablet. More →

Big leak: File found on Samsung site may confirm some Galaxy S6 specs

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Android smartphone is one of the most hotly anticipated handsets of 2015, particularly because many reports have so far painted a tantilizing picture: the Korean company is ready to offer buyers a brand new design, likely making use of metal and other tricks, instead of iterating on past designs. Specs-wise, the phone is also expected to be an absolute beast, and recently discovered information on Samsung’s site seems to confirm it. More →

Video: iPhone 6 free falls from space in the ultimate drop test

How annoying is this? You drop your phone accidentally from barely 3 feet off the ground and the screen shatters instantly. Meanwhile, Urban Armor Gear flies an iPhone 6 into space and intentionally drops it back down to Earth, and it emerges unscathed. UAG’s video isn’t going to make the sting of having dropped and cracked your smartphone any less painful, but it’s still pretty fun to watch.

2015’s most gorgeous Android phone will probably be unveiled on March 1st

The HTC One M8 was easily the most beautiful Android smartphone of the year in 2014. It might not have been the best-selling handset since HTC doesn’t quite have a marketing budget that compares to its massive rivals Samsung and Apple, but the M8 is still one of our favorite phones of all time. Now, it looks like we may finally know when the phone’s sequel — presumably dubbed the HTC One M9 — will be announced. More →

Why Samsung should be happy to see Apple’s iPhone 6s crush sales records this year

Apple is about to report results for the Christmas quarter that include all-time highs in a number of key areas, with analysts expecting the company to have sold a record number of iPhones during the period. While that’s generally bad news for rivals, Samsung may have a reason this year to appreciate Apple’s habit of constantly beating its iPhone sales records, especially once the company starts selling its iPhone 6s models, which are expected to launch later this year.

Galaxy S6 Rumors: Release Date

Samsung might do the unthinkable to keep its Galaxy S6 launch on track

Samsung might do the unthinkable to keep its Galaxy S6 launch on track

One of the common features of this year’s high-end Android handsets will be processor options, with top manufacturers likely to choose Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 System-on-Chip (SoC) for some of their best handsets scheduled to hit stores in 2015. But Qualcomm has been rumored more than once to have encountered certain performance issues with the Snapdragon 810 that are serious enough to cause significant launch delays for many flagship devices, including Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S6 beast.
