Nokia Lumia 1520 hands-on

Nokia Lumia 1520 hands-on

Nokia's new flagship Lumia 1520 is big news and a big phone. The company's first "phablet" Windows Phone, it marks the debut of official 1080p screen support in version 8.1 of Microsoft's platform, not to mention a further distillation of Nokia's investment into PureView camera technology down into the mass market. It's also the device that Nokia hopes will rival top-tier iPhone and Android handsets that, so far, it has struggled to compete with. Plenty of high expectations, then, but does the Lumia 1520 live up to them? Read on for our first impressions.

T-Mobile HTC One Android 4.3 update pushed back to next week

The T-Mobile HTC One update bringing Android 4.3 to the smartphone has been delayed until Monday, with the smartphone company blaming matters "out of our control" for the postponed release.

HTC One max Review

HTC One max Review

HTC should've had a best-seller with the HTC One. The metal-bodied phone was the go-to recommendation for Android fans in the know, and that it didn't get the attention of Samsung's Galaxy range is arguably more about marketing than anything else. HTC followed Samsung's example in distilling the brand for a smaller version, in the shape of the HTC One mini, and has now scaled things up with the HTC One max. A 5.9-inch display, metal body, and UltraPixel camera technology are arguably ingredients for the perfect phablet, but has HTC baked the One max badly? Read on for our full review.

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.

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

It would appear that HTC isn't going to keep a selection of key software features from its 2013 HTC One lineup here in the present if one (unofficial) software leak for the HTC One X+ has anything to say about it. Though Engadget's chat with HTC suggests that this software update is not one sent by HTC on purpose, it does exist. And the possibility that HTC could send out something rather similar officially, rather soon, is very real.
