Samsung Galaxy Discover revealed with vanilla Android

This week the folks at Samsung have revealed that they'll be delivering their newest Galaxy smartphone in the USA with a vanilla (read: untouched) Android experience straight from Google. The device you're seeing here is the Samsung Galaxy Discover and, though it's not 100% stock Android as a real Google Nexus smartphone would be, it's pretty darn close. This device works with a single-core 800Mhz Qualcomm processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

HTC One M8 Google Play Edition detailed: duo camera intact

Right on top of the HTC One M8 being revealed this week in full, officially, the company has made clear they intend to continue releasing Google Play Edition devices.

Wiko WAX hands-on: NVIDIA Tegra 4i gets busy

At last year’s Mobile World Congress we saw the NVIDIA Tegra 4i in a smartphone for the first time - a test model made just to show the processor’s capabilities.

Meizu MX3 Review

With the release of the Meizu MX3, the company once again aims high with their ability to create a high-end device that, at first, looks like it'd be able to compete with the finer solutions by the top manufacturers in the USA. What we've got here instead - in this current international edition of the device - is a machine that'll be able to compete with brands in China and surrounding markets with a look that's smooth, abilities that are quite nice, and Android 4.2-based Flyme OS 3.0 - read: rather unique.

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition Review

The Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition is undoubtedly the most unique form factor in Google's collection of Nexus and Nexus-like devices today. What we've gotten out of it so far is just that - if you're looking for a replacement for a device you've got in your pocket already, something that's just an upgrade from a large smartphone you've had in the past, this isn't it. Instead you've got a device that's massively solid and feels like a whole new generation in in-between greatness.
