LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Moto G first-impressions

Moto G first-impressions

This week we've gotten the opportunity to work with the Moto G, the international off-contract hero phone for Motorola. This device was designed to attract users who no longer want to deal with the payment plans involved in on-contract smartphones both inside the United States and abroad, bringing a build that's well and above previous standards for low-cost Android handhelds. While each version of the Moto G is essentially the same save the radio connectivity, we're working with the USA-based off-contract model - the same revealed as ready to roll this month.

BlackBerry: “We are very much alive, thank you”

BlackBerry Interim CEO John Chen today posted a stern and spirited open letter to all BlackBerry enterprise customers with one unifying message: BlackBerry is here to stay. The letter emphasizes the company's mobile device management (MDM) and enterprise mobility management (EMM) services through BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10). In other words, it is geared up and continuing to gear up for managing enterprise mobile devices no matter the platform, be it iOS, Android or (gulp) BlackBerry OS. Just to drive home the point, the logos for all three systems appear in the letterhead.

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

The stylus was dead, and now it's back. What once was the hallmark of cheap touchscreens and finger-unfriendly software has, thanks in no small part to Samsung's efforts with its Galaxy Note range, had a second-wind; even the popularity of aftermarket capacitive pens for the iPad suggests not every iOS user agrees with Steve Jobs that "if you see a stylus, they blew it." Now NVIDIA is wading into the fray, targeting not only pen control but a low price too, with the Tegra Note 7. Set to be sold under different brands in different countries - such as the EVGA model on the SlashGear test bench - the Tegra Note 7 claims similar functionality to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 but at just $199. Over-ambitious? Read on for our full review.

Galaxy Note 3 not the only one free of “benchmark shenanigans” accusations [UPDATE]

Galaxy Note 3 not the only one free of “benchmark shenanigans” accusations [UPDATE]

As the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 appears on US-shores we've seen talk of not quite on-the-level benchmark boosting by the likes of what, at first, would seem to be the manufacturer of the smartphone. This report originates with Ars Technica where they suggest that the smoking gun is the fact that this smartphone brings up four full-powered CPU cores whenever it's asked to open any one of several big-name benchmarking apps. What we've found is that this situation is not - by any means - limited to Samsung's hardware.

The third of three binding announcements has been made this week surrounding Valve's big move toward living room gaming: SteamOS, Steam Machines, and now the Steam Controller.

LG G2 Review

LG G2 Review

LG's "G" brand continues to represent the cutting edge in top-tier smartphone hardware. LG cut the mold for the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor last year with the LG Optimus G, brought one of the first Snapdragon 600 quad-core processors to the market with the LG Optimus G Pro, and again aim to be the first with the newest in new Qualcomm processor technology (in the USA) here at the tail end of the summer in 2013.
