Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

The last time we saw anything about the Galaxy S6, it was a nearly bezel-less device that seemed far too good to be true. And hey, it was; people quickly discovered the device was a photoshopped pic of a different Samsung device, so we’re back to square one on the rumor/candyland board. A new rumor, though very much an eyebrow-raising … Continue reading

HTC Hima in detail: before the fact

The HTC One M8 was a direct descendant of the HTC One M7. Before that, there was the HTC One S and the HTC One X.

Galaxy S6 details in the wings as A7 appears for certification

Tenna strikes again, releasing information about the Galaxy A7 before Samsung can officially announce the device on its own.

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

It may be time for HTC to get rid of the UltraPixel name – and the technology – if today’s anonymous sources are to be believed. The rest of the specifications shared this afternoon aren’t all that difficult to believe. Just boosts in resolution, screen size, and processor power. The big difference here is in the change in camera – … Continue reading

I’ve been a longtime iPhone owner. I bought the first-generation iPhone, followed by the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5. I entered this year with a cracked screen on my iPhone 5, fully expecting to take the plunge again this year and pick up an iPhone 6. The rumors surrounding the iPhone 6 are nothing short of … Continue reading
