There will be another OnePlus phone before the year ends

There will be another OnePlus phone before the year ends

OnePlus is one startup that really knows how to play the marketing game, allowing it to even rub shoulders with industry giants despite being barely two years in existence. With the new OnePlus 2 again making waves, not to mention numbers, one might presume the company has its work cut out for it. Apparently, however, the success has inspired them to be even bolder. In an interview with USA Today, co-founder and CEO Carl Pei reveals that there will be another OnePlus smartphone maybe in time for Christmas.

Moto G 3rd gen 16GB sold out in less than a week

Moto G 3rd gen 16GB sold out in less than a week

While we do not know how much stock Motorola had available of the 3rd gen Moto G, we do know that they've sold out of their 16GB edition in just a few days. Going on sale the first day it was revealed, July 28th, 2015, the Moto G 3rd gen is no longer available through Motorola online. This isn't a limited edition sort of thing, they're going to make more, but the fact remains: this appears to be a continued success story for Motorola, or at least one that they're ill-prepared to handle demand for.

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their devices attached and asked you, the readers, to vote on which photos looked best. Not which photos looked most color-correct, not which photos were sharpest - though those could have been your criteria if you'd wanted. This was a test of objective desires.

Galaxy S6 price cuts begin as Note 5 about to be revealed

Galaxy S6 price cuts begin as Note 5 about to be revealed

While Samsung made it clear late last week that price cuts were coming on their latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the company hasn't wasted any time. Europe has already seen discounts of over $100 applied to the devices, when both models are barely four months old. The S6 and S6 Edge were heavily promoted, and while they were well reviewed by critics, they didn't sell as well as expected, coming as a major surprise to Samsung. Now they've taken abrupt action to make up for their poor quarterly earnings.

Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+ gets an early hands-on leak

Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+ gets an early hands-on leak

From time to time, Samsung lets a few retailers get a privileged preview of upcoming devices, which then become fountains of leaks and rumors. Sounds almost counterproductive if you're trying to keep a lid on things. That's exactly what a certain retail shop owner is claiming on Reddit, having gotten some very early hands on time with Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, expected to arrive next week. Fortunately, he was generous enough to share perhaps what shouldn't be shared, though do always take leaks with a grain of salt.

EnLighten app from BMW shows you how long the light will stay red

EnLighten app from BMW shows you how long the light will stay red

All drivers can relate to the annoyance of a stop light that stays red way longer than you feel like it should. We naturally progress from annoyance at when the light will change to some level of being convinced that the light has stopped working correctly and we will never get to go. BMW has created an app that works in a few cities and will display on the infotainment screen in its cars.

Sony Xperia M5, C5 Ultra puts the focus on photos

Sony Xperia M5, C5 Ultra puts the focus on photos

True enough, Sony did have something in store today, but sadly, it's not a better Xperia flagship. Then again, for some people, these two smartphones might very well be, especially since the OEM doesn't seem to budge away from 1080p screens anyway. But what really makes the Xperia C5 Ultra phablet and the somewhat higher end Xperia M5 special is their cameras. Or, as you might have guessed it, their front cameras, with both smartphones sporting 13 megapixel front facing shooters for the ultimate selfie.

Camera Test: Moto G 3rd Gen vs Moto G 1st Gen Original

Camera Test: Moto G 3rd Gen vs Moto G 1st Gen Original

As the Moto G 3rd generation smartphone is released, second sequel to the original best-selling Motorola phone, we have a look at how its camera stacks up. We're not comparing this device's camera to the other hero phones on the market today. We're not even comparing the Moto G 3rd gen's camera to the budget smartphones it's up against. Today we compare the camera on the 3rd Gen Moto G to the original Moto G from 2013. This is for all the original Moto G users that are 2-years into Moto G ownership seriously considering upgrading.

YotaPhone 2 for US cancelled over ‘unforeseen’ delays

YotaPhone 2 for US cancelled over ‘unforeseen’ delays

The YotaPhone 2, a Russian-made smartphone with an LCD front and an e-ink back, launched for US buyers via the crowdfunding website Indiegogo. That crowdfunding campaign proved successful, and by all accounts the oddball two-faced smartphone would eventually be making its way into backers’ hands. Only, it won’t be, at least not in the way backers expected. The company started sending emails to Indiegogo backers today advising them that the planned US release has been cancelled. The reasons, say the company, are “unforeseen delays."
