Samsung Wave S8500 Review

Samsung Wave S8500 Review

From its confusing launch back in December 2009, to its feature-packed handset debut at Mobile World Congress and then all the way to the SlashGear test bench today, Samsung's bada OS has had a rocky journey. Showing up for the first time on the Samsung Wave S8500, the new platform promises the flexibility of a smartphone OS with the easy usability of a feature-phone. That makes this a double review, perhaps: new platform, new phone. Does bada really have a future in the competitive cellphone market?

Watch Donald Glover as Spider-Man in black

Watch Donald Glover as Spider-Man in black

Donald Glover will be voicing the alternate-reality Spider-Man Miles Morales in an upcoming episode of the Disney-run television series coming up this Sunday. For those of you (what we must imagine the very few of you) that know Miles Morales from the comic book series, this should come as an awesome surprise. The original character was, after all, based in part after Donald Glover in the first place.

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 is no point update. In fact, if it wasn’t so keen on keeping in naming step with Windows on the desktop, Microsoft could probably have called its new smartphone OS version something more impressive: what started out as an aim to bring the virtual assistant Cortana and the useful Action Center to the platform blossomed in the process to include a whole flurry of tweaks and additions. Question is, has Windows Phone kept its crisp, clean charms while still gaining abilities? We’ve been in deep with the Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview; read on for our impressions.

Facebook app collection tipped for 2014

Facebook app collection tipped for 2014

Facebook is working on a suite of mobile apps for release in 2014, insiders at the social network claim, breaking out key features and effectively turning them into standalone software much in the manner of Facebook Messenger. The scheme, which is billed as recognition that Android and iOS users prefer task-specific apps rather than a do-all title that can be confusing, will include the rumored "Facebook Paper" news app with Mark Zuckerberg's appearance at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona next month potentially where one or more titles could be unveiled.

Moto G Review

Moto G Review

The Moto G is a smartphone the whole tech community has wishing for and waiting on for ages. It's a low-cost smartphone with hardware and software to back up its ability to be a contender in many markets - but more than that, it's also got the backing it needs to succeed. With the power of brand recognition in Motorola and Android and the push for success on a global scale from the manufacturer's parent company Google.

iPhone 5s Review

iPhone 5s Review

We've come to expect evolution not revolution from the "S" update to Apple's iPhone range, but the iPhone 5s could be enough to buck that trend. Inside the familiar metal casing beats a new processor, the Apple A7, making the iPhone 5s the first smartphone - and iOS 7 the first smartphone platform - to transition to 64-bit; the home button has lost its square sigil but gained a biometric sensor that might be the first to actually convince owners to use it; and the camera may still be 8-megapixels in resolution on paper, but those pixels - and the way Apple uses them - are quantifiably better than before. Does that make the iPhone 5s the automatic choice in smartphones? Read on for our full review.

DROID Ultra Review

DROID Ultra Review

Motorola Mobility scored big when they teamed up with Google. If it wasn't evident enough in the Moto X, then certainly Motorola's newly optimized experience is ready to shine in the DROID Ultra, the first of three devices coming from Verizon in their newest exclusive brand lineup. If the DROID RAZR HD took the original DROID RAZR to a place where it was more than ready to be that single unique member of the Android universe that was both top-tier for display and processor quality as well as fully rugged enough to make up for the comparative lack of hype the line received, the DROID Ultra succeeds in replacing the RAZR line in more ways than one.

Google Glass alien shooter game in the works

Google Glass alien shooter game in the works

The comical nature of paying a game that no one else can see aside, developer Sean McCracken is working on an alien shooter game for Google Glass, calling it on his Google+ a mix between 3D Space Invaders and Missile Command. Earlier this week, McCracken showed the game off in a short, somewhat hard to watch video on Instagram, and today a more detailed video has been posted.

Moto X Review

Moto X Review

Motorola needed to reinvent itself, and the Moto X is the result of that forced evolution. Guided - albeit at a remove - by new owner Google, the Moto X attempts to do what, arguably, no other Android phone before it has: step off the "biggest, fastest, brightest" treadmill and focus instead on the sort of real-world functionality that Motorola claims will make a significant difference for users. In doing so, though, Motorola pits itself against handsets that on paper at least are much more powerful than the Moto X, despite being the same price. Crazy strategy, or does X mark the spot for the future of Android? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.
