iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

As of this week, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5 entirely, focusing instead on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 4S. While it was widely expected that Apple would take the smaller display of the iPhone 4S out of the equation entirely, it would seem instead that the company opted for ease in differentiation between models. It's a whole heck of a lot more difficult to sell an iPhone 5S when you've got a nearly identical-looking iPhone 5 sitting on the shelf for a lower price, after all.

HTC Butterfly S: So close, yet so far (away)

HTC Butterfly S: So close, yet so far (away)

HTC's original J Butterfly was a phone of firsts for the company, most notably the 1080p display. It may not have been the only phone to feature Full HD resolution, but it pushed HTC back into the limelight and helped us forget devices like the Sensation XL, which got the big-display part right but then dropped the ball in terms of resolution. Of course, with limited Butterfly availability outside of Asia, we had to wait several months until the HTC One to get our fix of 1080p HTC. Now, just as One supplies are finally catching up, the Butterfly S comes along to show us that yes, HTC can fit it all into a single device, it just probably won't sell it to you.

HTC Deluxe aka global DROID DNA leaks

HTC Deluxe aka global DROID DNA leaks

With Verizon's DROID DNA searing eyeballs and driving grown Android fans to tears, HTC lovers outside of the US have been eagerly anticipating the global edition of the 5-inch 1080p phone. That's looking like it might be nearing, if a leaked promo shot of the HTC Deluxe - the international version of the DNA - courtesy of arch insider evleaks is anything to go by; the device is obviously free of Verizon branding, but it also lacks any indication of whether it will be a 3G or 4G device outside of the US.

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

With the Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL, the team brings us what at first appears to be a powerhouse of a smartphone with a giant battery to boot. As it turns out, the processor doesn't take down its competitors in Samsung, Qualcomm, or NVIDIA, but certainly does nice enough to keep up with them in many ways. You're certainly able to play high-powered games, videos play smoothly even at their highest of definitions, and the whole smartphone is easily Huawei's most powerful to date. The lack of uniqueness in the build of the device, on the other hand, should remind you of Huawei's competitors' devices from this past year - it's put us on guard right out of the box, but ends up proving to be far less important than the end product, which is great.

UPDATE: we now have our Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL full review up and prepared for your perusal!

EE LTE benchmarked: iPhone 5 gets super-fast in the UK

UK 4G carrier EE has been flaunting its speeds again, and we couldn't resist stopping by to see how the iPhone 5 and other handsets perform on the new LTE network.
