Galaxy S6 vs. HTC One M9: Samsung puts HTC to shame in early benchmarks

By on March 2, 2015 at 2:20 PM.

Let’s be clear: Benchmark results do not prove definitively that one device runs better than another, particularly since we know that OEMs have tried to optimize their devices to produce stronger results. That said, two new videos flagged by Android Police show that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge really do appear to have eye-popping benchmark scores, at least in the versions being displayed at Mobile World Congress right now.

LG Watch Urbane hands-on: The smartwatch LG really needs

LG Watch Urbane hands-on: The smartwatch LG really needs

By on March 2, 2015 at 1:52 PM.

A few days before MWC 2015 kicked off, LG unveiled not one but two interesting wearable devices, and even though they share the same name, they’re actually quite different. The LG Watch Urbane LTE model that I saw earlier is a SIM-enabled smartphone on your wrist, a device that’s pretty bulky, even though it looks good and you could easily get used to that big metallic piece of technology on your hand.

But the real looker on LG’s hands is the LG Watch Urbane that looks even better in real life than in pictures and videos. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: An early look at the battle of the sixes

We’re only in day 1 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, but it looks as though Samsung has already stolen the show. Samsung and HTC both announced stunning new flagship smartphones during separate press conferences on Sunday, but one succeeded in reinventing itself while the other showed off an iterative update that was decidedly far less exciting.

Where Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and of the Galaxy S6 edge are concerned, Samsung will really only have one competitor when it comes to flagship smartphone sales, and that’s the iPhone 6; simply put, no other company can afford to go up against Samsung’s multi-billion dollar marketing and advertising budget.

So, how do Samsung’s new flagship phones stack up against Apple’s iPhone 6? More →

Apple Watch Release

The incredible (and hilarious) way Apple kept the Apple Watch a secret

The incredible (and hilarious) way Apple kept the Apple Watch a secret

By on March 2, 2015 at 12:49 PM.

The hype and speculation surrounding Apple’s September Apple Watch event was unprecedented, understandably so given Apple’s track record of driving innovation in new product categories. What made the event all the more exciting is that Apple was successfully able to keep important details of the device completely under wraps.

In a broad sense, sure, we knew Apple was likely to introduce a wearable device of some sort. But key details surrounding the device’s capabilities, and even what the design looked like, remained unknown until Tim Cook officially walked up on stage and unveiled the Apple Watch for the first time.

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

By on March 2, 2015 at 10:41 AM.

Ahead of Sunday’s huge Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge unveiling at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Spain, there was a lot of chatter focused on similarities between the Galaxy S6 we saw in leaks and Apple’s iPhone 6. Many people suggested that Samsung was getting ready to copy the iPhone once again with its new flagship phones — in some ways of course, that would be a good thing — and leaked images of handset prototypes certainly made it appear as though that would be the case.

Now that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are official and we have spent some time with both new models, it’s time to determine once and for all whether or not Samsung’s latest and greatest is the blatant iPhone ripoff many Apple fans have said it is. More →

LG Watch Urbane LTE hands-on: Gorgeous, but a bit bulky

By on March 2, 2015 at 10:20 AM.

A few days before the MWC 2015 madness started, LG surprised smartwatch fans by announcing a one of the best-looking smartwatches yet, at least until Huawei’s watch was unveiled: the LG Watch Urbane and its SIM-card carrying cohort, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. After taking the later for a brief stroll at MWC, I can say that it looks and feels good on the wrist, but it’s also a little bulky. Not to mention the fact that it runs on LG’s “Wearable Platform,” which might take some adjusting to. More →
