Apple Pay might be UK’s first big mobile payment run

In less than a day, Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC will commence. Of course, that means there's time for a last minute flood of what may or may not be revealed at the event. This latest one is quite some big news for Apple's fresh new mobile payment system. Sources claim Cupertino is ready to announce that Apple Pay will be landing in the UK this summer. While mobile payment in the US isn't exactly new, this is very big news for those across the pond.

Huawei’s $250 P8 lite wants to kill subsidies: Hands-on

Huawei’s $250 P8 lite wants to kill subsidies: Hands-on

Huawei isn't first to think it can coax America off its smartphone subsidy addiction, but the new P8 lite is more than an also-ran in unlocked devices. Launching today as the pared-back - and thus more affordable - sibling to the Huawei P8, the P8 lite carries a $249.99 price tag but hits that with no need for carrier financing or any sort of minimum contract: just slot in the AT&T or T-Mobile USA SIM card of your choice. With a tag like that, though, you know Huawei had to trim some of the tech.

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

Aston Martin on ICE: James Bond for a Day with American Express by Invitation Only

Traveling can be hard enough without having to worry about booking flights, hotels and planning out what or where to eat. If you’re the type that’s used to the high life or simply prefer to have someone else do the heavy lifting when it comes to making travel plans, then the American Express Platinum card is worth considering. More than just a credit card, I’ve been finding that the services and benefits included when you have it in your wallet are worth their weight in platinum.

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Motorola's 2nd gen Moto E comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch display, and is perfectly legit for the price it's being offered at. Is it the finest piece of hardware on the market today? Of course not. Is it meant to be? No way. Does the 2015 Moto E provide one of the most compelling value propositions for a smartphone in the world today? Absolutely it does. This is Motorola's continuation of their most successful smartphone-selling setup to date - inexpensive, yet not cheap - easily one of the best new smartphones for the price it's being offered at globally this year.

“FREAK” security hole affects even Windows after all

“FREAK” security hole affects even Windows after all

Microsoft almost had it good. Long lambasted for being so easily hacked, it was almost believed that the company's operating system, at least those well-patched and up to date ones, were immune to the latest security vulnerability causing worry over the Internet. As it turns out, however, it just isn't the case. Microsoft published a security advisory informing users that the version of Internet Explorer running on many versions of the Windows OS are susceptible to this FREAK attack, with no word on when a patch will be rolled out.

Alcatel announces the budget-friendly Hero 2+ running Cyanogen OS

Need a big, unlocked phone that won’t break the bank? Good news! Alcatel is introducing the Hero 2+, a device with a 6-inch screen that comes unlocked. An android device, this one is a touch different than you might imagine it would be on the software side. Rather than running a home-brewed, modified version of Android, Alcatel is wisely turning to Cyanogen for their software needs. Another disruptive tidbit — the Alcatel Hero 2+ can be yours for $299 beginning in Q2 2015.
