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.

iPhone 5S hands-on

iPhone 5S hands-on

We were expecting a flagship and Apple gave us one: the iPhone 5S takes the core of the iPhone 5 and refines it even further, adding biometric security, a speedy new processor, and new camera features both in software and hardware. The iOS 7 smartphone now has some competition from within its own range, however, with the iPhone 5C aiming for the midrange, so does the iPhone 5S hold up to scrutiny? In the aftermath of the new handset's launch, we grabbed some hands-on time to see what makes it special.

Apple Touch ID official: iPhone 5S first for fingerprint sensor

We suspect much of the excitement today comes from the newly announced iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, not to mention the upcoming public release date for iOS 7, but there is more to the event. We have seen details in terms of the 64-bit processor and the camera and up now we have some discussion of security. Talk coming from the stage reflected on how we have lots of information we need to protect on our devices.

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Once upon a time, mobile megapixels were the key. In fact, not so many years ago, many questioned whether there was any value whatsoever in having a camera built into your phone. Convergence for its own sake is undeniably a problem in today's crossover-soaked market, but it's now hard to argue that photography and the modern smartphone aren't a compelling match. As the technology - and the rivalry - has increased, though, so the simple megapixel has lost some of its clarity, and with the smartphone stakes never higher, there's a revolution of sorts underway to reframe mobile imagery.

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.

Moto X hands-on

Moto X hands-on

Motorola is back, and the Moto X is its coming out party. The culmination of Google's new hand on the wheel, the "context aware" smartphone promises to step away from the core-chasing that plagues Android today, and instead deliver real usability improvements like entirely voice-activated Google Now, a camera with better low-light performance that doesn't sacrifice megapixels along the way, and the promise of all-day battery life. Google has had a year to work with Motorola for this relaunch: the Moto X is the fruit of that labor, and it's already tasting mighty fine. Read on for our first-impressions as to why the Moto X is a mobile game-changer.

Moto X official: Touchless Google Now and 10MP Clear Pixel camera

The Moto X is official, relaunching Motorola and bringing Google Now to the forefront of the Android experience. The year-long handiwork of Google's new management, the Moto X trades spec-bingo for usability and customization options, like sixteen casing colors to choose between, and instant all-voice access to Google Now. Inside the 4.7-inch 720p HD smartphone there's a new Motorola X8 architecture and a custom-stacked battery for balancing power and runtime when it lands on all five networks this August.

SlashGear 101: Nokia PureView

SlashGear 101: Nokia PureView

Smartphone buyers pick handsets on the basis of cameras, that's what the big manufacturers have realized, and Nokia is determined not to be left behind. As well as transitioning to lead the Windows Phone charge, the Finnish company is also positioning itself as the most imaginative firm in mobile photography, putting snapshots at the core of every recent device. One name stands out as special to any mobile photo pro, however, and that's PureView, expected to crop up again with the imminent launch of the Nokia Lumia 1020. There's a lot to be said for 41-megapixel cameras: read on, as we walk you why PureView is special, and what might come next.

Forget lattes: Starbucks’ next coffee trend might finally be the Clover

Forget lattes: Starbucks’ next coffee trend might finally be the Clover

Try taking a coffee snob into Starbucks and you might have trouble; that is, unless you're lucky enough to come across a branch with a Clover machine. The one-cup brewer - borrowing principles from a French Press and a vacuum pot, among other preparation methods, and which allows for far greater experimentation with beans, roasts, and strengths - has slowly found its way into a small number of Starbucks locations, a welcome distraction from big pots of Pike Roast and milk-heavy cappuccino. Even with Starbucks' might behind it, though, the Clover has been a relative secret among the coffee cognoscenti, but all that could change in short order with signs of a new, super-auto Clover in development.
