Huawei announces their Ascend Mate 2, a followup that actually impresses

A few years ago, Huawei decided they’d go their own way. In their move from a device maker for the stars to a device maker for the people, Huawei did what they’d always done — and we liked — but put their name on it. The Ascend Mate, the phone many consider the first “phablet”, helped to raise awareness to the brand, and ruffled a few feathers in the process. With the Ascend Mate 2, Huawei is at it again, and bringing the same energy and focus that made our heads turn the first time.

Pebble Steel hands-on: The smartwatch goes classy

New year, new Pebble, and the smartwatch company that took Kickstarter by storm has cooked up a second model, the Pebble Steel, to continue its assault on the wearables space.

While we might normally be a little cynical of curved TVs, meanwhile, at 105-inches it's starting to show its worth.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ and BOOMBand wearable hands-on: Gunning for Moto G

Alcatel has some big ambitions in the midrange, and it's counting on the OneTouch Idol X+ to bludgeon its way through the market. Revealed at CES 2014 - alongside a Bluetooth 4.0 wearable - the new OneTouch delivers specifications more akin to some company's flagships, like a 5-inch Full HD display, 13-megapixel camera, and "true octacore" processor courtesy of MediaTek, but with a price that Alcatel says will come in under the $350 mark unsubsidized.
