HTC One mini 2 hands-on: One M8 gets a baby brother

Vhoto iPhone app sucks incredible stills from your videos

A new iPhone app aims to blur the lines between photos and video, with Vhoto automagically pulling out the best stills from video clips.

Lytro Illum reboots light-field camera with prosumer appeal

Lytro has revealed a new light field camera, the Lytro Illum, ditching the odd, toy-like appearance of the original in favor of a prosumer design, improved specs, and a price to match.

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.

Can the HTC One M8 save HTC?

Can the HTC One M8 save HTC?

HTC has a problem, and it's more than just hemorrhaging cash. The company has confirmed its second consecutive quarter with losses, bleeding around $62.2m as it readied the new HTC One M8 and crossed its collective fingers that 2014 would deliver the turnaround many had hoped - but which failed to transpire - for 2013.

HTC One M8 boosts to beat benchmarks HTC concedes

HTC One M8 boosts to beat benchmarks HTC concedes

HTC has conceded that it "games" benchmarking tests with the new HTC One M8, though the company argues that the maximum performance squeezed out of the 2014 flagship during profiling should be seen as an advantage, not a cheat. Tests of the One M8 on different versions of popular Android benchmarking tools suggested that HTC was specifically targeting the apps and putting the handset into an extreme mode that wasn't necessarily comparable to what regular apps might run in.
