Galaxy S6, S6 Edge show up side by side in leaked pics

Galaxy S6, S6 Edge show up side by side in leaked pics

Yesterday, the Galaxy S6 was leaked in all its prototype glory. Still cased in bubble wrap, we got our first look at what might be the next flagship from Samsung. Now, we’re getting a better look at the device, and a comparison to the Galaxy S6 Edge. Side by side (edge to edge?), the two phones give us our first look at Samsung’s new two-phone flagship scheme. Oddly enough, while the thought of a curved screen might not appeal to you, these pics might change your mind.

HTC teases something HUGE, math geniuses can try

HTC teases something HUGE, math geniuses can try

As we count down the days to MWC 2015, it's natural to see companies kick their marketing campaigns into high gear, sometimes with absurd results. Take for example HTC's latest "teaser", basically a fill in the blanks game with nothing much in terms of clues. Of course, that's not going to stop anyone from speculating, or wishing, what it's all about. Given how things are going, it could very well be the rumored HTC One M9 Plus. Or an HTC Tablet. Or anything for that matter.

Mobile Photography Primer: Taking Print-Quality Photos

Mobile Photography Primer: Taking Print-Quality Photos

Canon’s earnings report last month confirmed the trend we’ve seen time and again: consumers are gravitating toward mobile cameras as being their only camera, so much so that traditional camera sales are down and camera makers are hurting. We see photos taken with smartphones all over the Internet, and there’s no shortage of love for them. Still, you’ll notice that many of the images aren’t the greatest in terms of image quality, and in many of those cases those issues could have been avoided with some basic preparation and settings.

Microsoft makes biometrics focal point for Windows 10 security

Microsoft makes biometrics focal point for Windows 10 security

With Windows 10, you’ll have more options for password protection. In a recent blog post, Microsoft announced they’ll support new Fast Identity Online Alliance (FIDO) standards, which they also helped contribute to. With FIDO 2.0, you’ll have wider availability to use biometrics, which means your next-generation PC might have some biometric scanners built right in. In fact, it could make that Synaptics touchpad, which also supports new FIDO guidelines, a must-have accompaniment for Windows 10, if you’re of the mind that fingerprints are better than passwords.

I want a computer on my wrist, not a buzzer

I want a computer on my wrist, not a buzzer

This week it's become clear to me what Android Wear is doing wrong. It's not that the software isn't smooth. It's not that the software doesn't make sense. It's that Android Wear doesn't make good on the promise of a fully functional piece of smart equipment on my wrist. While a device like the LG G Watch R may be one of the finest smartwatches on the market today, it's still just a buzzer. Its main function is still secondary to the smartphone.

2016 Acura ILX first-drive – Luxury chasing loyalty

2016 Acura ILX first-drive – Luxury chasing loyalty

There’s an odd dance to be followed when, as Acura is with the 2016 ILX, you’re launching a revamped version of an existing car. On the one hand, you want to highlight just how improved it is over its predecessor; on the other, you can’t be too critical, because then drivers start asking why you were so enthusiastic - and are now so cruelly honest - about the older car. For the 2016 ILX, Acura is more blunt than many: the old model was designed before the host of “entry premium sedans” hit forecourts, with Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Lexus, and others changing the game in the process. For the MY2016, then, the focus is more rewarding driving, more luxury, and a generous injection of tech borrowed from Acura’s TLX.

Apple interested in putting Touch ID sensor directly into touchscreen displays

Apple interested in putting Touch ID sensor directly into touchscreen displays

One of the largest ongoing critiques against the iPhone has been the fairly large bezels above and below the display. With Apple's flagship mobile device still sporting a circular home button, there's been little to shave off and maintain the iPhone's symmetric look. If Apple ever does decide to reduce, or eliminate, the home button, there would be nowhere to put the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, right? Maybe not, as a recent patent discovery hints that Apple may one day implement the sensor directly into its touchscreens.

Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

As is always the case, Samsung's next flagship is portrayed with almost godlike powers and the Galaxy S6 is no different. Perhaps aside from the fact that it might not be running on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. In addition to dual curved edges and a new "stationary" fingerprint sensor instead of a swipe-based one, now the smartphone is rumored to have one more special feature. If the information is accurate, the Galaxy S6 will be the first to bear Samsung's new mobile payment system, that is rumored not to rely on NFC.

Galaxy S6 case sparks interest, but it’s probably nonsense

Galaxy S6 case sparks interest, but it’s probably nonsense

At MWC this year, we’re likely going to get our hands on the Galaxy S6 from Samsung. While rumors have been circulating about the new flagship from Samsung, we’ve not seen much that gives us a hint at anything official. A case has been spotted on amazon, which points to some aesthetic changes Samsung could be making. Most notably, the rear camera ensemble is changed, with the flash sitting to the side of the camera, not underneath like the Galaxy S5. Still, something is really off, here. Can this listing be trusted?
