Dear Microsoft: HTC has the right idea

Dear Microsoft: HTC has the right idea

This week I’m meant to publish a review of the HTC One M8 with Windows, the Microsoft-embedded version of the Android original. Once I started using it, devoid of any special or alternate treatment for hardware, it became clear to me that I’d been mistaken: it’s the hardware, not the software, that’d driven me away in the past.

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

When Amazon wades into a new segment, competitors take note, and few devices have been so nervously anticipated as the Fire Phone. Amazon's first smartphone doesn't just put Prime in your pocket, it also pushes the limits of UI, with its quartet of Dynamic Perspective cameras, and computational photography, with Firefly. Ambitious, then, but Jeff Bezos & Co. have seldom lacked that. Question is, does the Fire Phone deserve to be the hottest handset in town?

LG G3 may miss out on Snapdragon 805

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

The stylus was dead, and now it's back. What once was the hallmark of cheap touchscreens and finger-unfriendly software has, thanks in no small part to Samsung's efforts with its Galaxy Note range, had a second-wind; even the popularity of aftermarket capacitive pens for the iPad suggests not every iOS user agrees with Steve Jobs that "if you see a stylus, they blew it." Now NVIDIA is wading into the fray, targeting not only pen control but a low price too, with the Tegra Note 7. Set to be sold under different brands in different countries - such as the EVGA model on the SlashGear test bench - the Tegra Note 7 claims similar functionality to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 but at just $199.
