Today’s Apple vs Samsung court news means nothing to you

Today’s Apple vs Samsung court news means nothing to you

Average consumers remain unaffected by today's United States Court of Appeals decision in a long-lasting Apple vs Samsung case. This case has been on the books for many moons. Back in April of 2013 the case was raging - re-calculating damages after a 1-billion dollar damage report in August of 2012. How much does all of this affect you? Not very much. Not very much at all, really, unless you happen to be an investor or a lawyer working for Samsung or Apple, or any company caught in the cross-fire.

HTC confirms there will be no One Mini 3 [UPDATE: Not so fast!]

If you're attracted to HTC's new flagship smartphone, the One M9, but were holding out for a model featuring a slightly smaller screen, it's time to let go of that hope.

Sony event in India could be for the Xperia Z4

Sony event in India could be for the Xperia Z4

If the stars align, we might actually get to see the Sony Xperia Z4, as it is known in Japan, head outside the Land of the Rising Sun, contrary to earlier assurances that the weird device is a Japan-only affair. Sony sent out invitations in India for an event dated May 26, and although the aquatic theme of the invite suggests the Xperia M4 Aqua, there are whispers that it might actually be intended for the start of the global launch of the Xperia Z4 instead.

AT&T’s LG Escape2 is the LG Spirit in spirit

AT&T’s LG Escape2 is the LG Spirit in spirit

Some carriers tend to rename their versions of a particular device, perhaps just to set it apart from the competition. That seems to be the case here with the AT&T LG Escape2. Yes, there is no whitespace in between the "Escape" and the "2". In many aspects, the Escape2 is pretty similar to the LG Spirit launched just last March. That, however, doesn't mean that the Escape2 won't be interesting, especially for a mid-range LG smartphone that is coming on the heels of the LG G4.

LG G4 begins its global journey

LG G4 begins its global journey

If you've been on the edge of your seats waiting for LG's flagship to finally land on the market, then the wait is over for you. Somewhat. The Korean OEM has just signaled the start of the rollout of the LG G4 in "key markets" around the world. That said, it hasn't given exact dates or even prices, especially for the US. It also doesn't seem to be prioritizing the usual countries were big players make a big splash, giving way, instead, to those in emerging markets first.

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

It might be nigh time for NVIDIA's take on an Android TV gaming rig for your living room to come to market. That is, if the "accidentally" outing of the NVIDIA SHIELD is any indication. Amazon's product listings showed, and then swiftly removed, the NVIDIA SHIELD as well as an unannounced SHIELD Pro model, hinting that we're close to seeing one or both in the retail flesh soon. If that soon will be before May ends, it could give Android TV a serious boost before Google I/O 2015 kicks off.

Samsung launches two new colors for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Samsung is making their flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge even more appealing by adding fun, new colored handsets into the mix. Now, you can get the S6 in Blue Topaz and the S6 Edge in Green Emerald. These jewel-toned shades arrive, joining the original Black Sapphire, White Pearl, and Gold Platinum versions. It looks like Samsung is taking a cue from color experts, Pantone, who opened their Spring 2015 color trend forecast with four shades of blue and green, similar to Samsung's Blue Topaz and Green Emerald.

LG Watch Urbane Review – All that glitters isn’t gold

LG Watch Urbane Review – All that glitters isn’t gold

You can understand why Android enthusiasts might be resentful of the Apple Watch. Android Wear has been around long enough for manufacturers like LG to release several generations of smartwatch, but listen to some and you’d be excused for thinking Cupertino had invented the segment. Into the fray wades the LG Watch Urbane, promising genteel luxury instead of geek chic, and first to offer the very latest version of Android Wear itself, complete with a number of hotly-anticipated updates. $349 is a lot to ask for an Android smartwatch, though: is the Urbane worth it?

In the wake of the preview announcement of the Iron Man Edition of the Galaxy S6 Edge, SlashGear turns its eye to the Poor Techie's Solution. Here we're taking a peek at another SkinIt skin for our device.

Moto G 3rd gen makes a surprise appearance online

Moto G 3rd gen makes a surprise appearance online

Motorola's little powerhouse budget smartphone, the Moto G (which lies somewhere in the space below the Moto X but above the Moto E) has seen ample success both in its first and second generation iterations. The third-generation of the Moto G is expected but thus far unannounced -- that hasn't stopped it from cropping up on a retailer's website, however, a trend with the product that's starting to become a pattern. The 3rd generation Moto G recently appeared (somewhat) on the retailer website Flipkart, where a few details were included.
