Galaxy S6 Mini Specs

Yet another new version of the Galaxy S6 just leaked – is this the one you’ll buy?

Yet another new version of the Galaxy S6 just leaked – is this the one you’ll buy?

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably the two best Android phones that have ever existed. After years of complaints from tech blogs and Android fans, Samsung finally gave in and built a pair of smartphones with premium materials to match their premium performance and premium prices. Unfortunately, even the best isn’t good enough when you’re up against the iPhone 6.

Put plainly, not enough people are buying Samsung’s high-margin S6 series phones to help stop the company’s sliding profits. Well, if the Galaxy S6 isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 edge isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 Active isn’t the phone you want… and the much-rumored Galaxy S6 edge+ isn’t the phone you want… maybe the newly leaked “Galaxy S6 Mini” will be just what the doctor ordered.

Live coverage: Watch live as Motorola unveils its brand new Android lineup

For a period of time in late 2014, the Moto X was the best Android phone on the planet. It wasn’t the most powerful Android flagship and it wasn’t the thinnest. It didn’t have the highest-resolution display and it didn’t have the support of a billion-dollar marketing budget. The Moto X was, however, the most well-rounded Android flagship on the market. It was sleek, it was unique, it had solid specs and it could be customized in dozens of different ways.

Meanwhile, the 2014 Moto G was shockingly capable for a handset that was so affordable, offering all-day battery life, respectable specs and a surprisingly good screen for under $200 with no service contract. It was an improvement over its predecessor in every conceivable way.

Now, it’s time to see if Motorola can bring something new to the table in 2015. More →

How to watch live as OnePlus unveils the phone of hardcore Android fans’ dreams

If you’ve never heard of the OnePlus One, don’t feel bad — we’re not here to judge. This oddly named smartphone isn’t a handset you’ll find at your wireless carrier’s local store, and its upcoming successor likely won’t be stocked there either. OnePlus’ One was one of the most surprising and exciting smartphones of the year in 2014 though, bringing impressive specs, an affordable price and great hackability to Android fans around the world. Or at least, it brought all that to Android fans around the world who managed to secure an invitation to purchase the phone.

Now, OnePlus is back with the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the One, and it’s shaping up to once again be among the hottest Android smartphone launches of the year. More →

Cord cutters: Free app makes Netflix like watching cable TV so you can relive pay TV’s glory days

There are some things about pay TV that cord cutters will never, ever miss.

Cable and satellite TV do have some redeeming qualities though, and there are actually a few things cord cutters might actually miss once their pay TV packages are gone. Now, however, there’s a nifty free app that lets you relive cable TV’s glory days without having to pay for it. More →

10 new jailbreak tweaks that are so cool, they’re actually making me a little jealous

Last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the most powerful iPhones the world has ever seen. They positively pulverized quad- and octa-core Android rivals in a number of key performance tests, and they pushed Apple’s iPhone sales to an all-time high in the holiday quarter. iOS 8 makes great use of all that power, having brought a wide range of new features to the iOS platform that make it Apple’s most capable mobile platform to date.

As great as iOS 8 is — and as great as iOS 9 is shaping up to be — there are still plenty of great features that only iPhone owners who jailbreak their phones have access to. More →

5 Gmail hacks you shouldn’t have to live another day without

If you’re old enough to remember what email was like before Google came along and launched Gmail, you know just how impressive and capable Google’s email product really is. If you’re not old enough to remember, consider yourself lucky. Email was an overcomplicated, overpriced mess until Gmail introduced a free service with a huge amount of storage, and the rest of the market scrambled to compete.

Today, Gmail packs even more features than it ever has before while still maintaining a very simple overall feel. As is the case with any software, however, a few simple tweaks and hacks can provide some great improvements that many users will wonder how they ever lived without. More →
