HTC One M9+ render leaks out again, hints at fingerprint scanner

HTC One M9+ render leaks out again, hints at fingerprint scanner

While Samsung seems to be taking a breather just before the storm of launching its Galaxy S6 flagship worldwide, HTC seems to be still busy coming out with devices left and right, from all possible tiers. We just recently saw the appearance of the One E9+, ahead of the One E9 itself. And more than that, the "larger", though not really larger, sibling of the One M9 flagship is making a few rounds over the Internet again. And in the latest scoop, the One M9+ is said to sport a fingerprint scanner on what looks like a home button.

Galaxy S6 edge brutally slammed on the ground thrice, survives

Galaxy S6 edge brutally slammed on the ground thrice, survives

This video is both a testament to Samsung's new build quality as well as to human cruelty. We'd love to be able to say no smartphone was harmed in the making of this video, but we'd be lying to your face. A woman, presumably a Korean considering the origin of this YouTube clip, has subjected the new Galaxy S6 edge not to a drop test but to a slam test. Yes, the more expensive Galaxy S6 edge gets slammed on the ground. Hard. To its credit, it survives unscathed.

LG G4 photos leaked, possibly “Note” variant

With the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 set to arrive in stores in the next few weeks, we can turn our attention a bit to this year's MWC no-shows, like LG, for example. Numerous leaks of what might be the LG G4 have already surfaced, and LG itself is giving fodder by teasing what could be in its next flagship. This latest batched of leaked photos, four in total, is particularly curious. While some might bill this to be the LG G4 itself, it might very well be an LG G4 Note version instead.

Zuckerberg showed how 360-degree spherical video would be making its way to Facebook's main news feed with the help of Oculus VR.

With the Samsung Gear VR (made in collaboration with Oculus VR), the company would also be showing a "Teleportation Station" to give people a glimpse of their offices from a remote location.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge release details and first-impressions

Samsung has announced US availability for its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones, and what better way to celebrate them landing on the SlashGear review bench than an impromptu photo-shoot. Announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, the metal- and glass-bodied Android smartphones mark the beginning of a new - and welcome - design direction for Samsung, swapping the plastic of their forebears for a far more premium feel.

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?
