But as the old saying goes, “good things come to those who wait.” Today Sony has announced availability for their flagship phones in the US, and it turns out we won't have to wait too much longer.

iOS 9.3 will show how much data Wi-Fi Assist consumed

iOS 9.3 will show how much data Wi-Fi Assist consumed

Not all changes that new software versions bring are always welcome with open arms. It isn't uncommon for one or two or even more new features, or the removal of such, while strike a nerve. In the case of Apple's iOS 9, that is probably the contentious Wi-Fi Assist. Supposedly designed to make surfing the Web a more fluid and painless experience, it has actually caused more pain for users unaware of the feature and the data charges that it brings. Apple isn't disable the feature in iOS 9.3 beta 1, but it will let you keep an eye on it at least.

iPhone 6s’ AnTuTu debut blows competition out of the water

iPhone 6s’ AnTuTu debut blows competition out of the water

For a long time, smartphone benchmarks were the domain of Android devices, as many of the tools, like the ever so popular AnTuTu, just weren't available for Apple's iOS platform. With AnTuTu's latest version, however, it has finally bridged the platform gap. So now we can see a fuller version of AnTuTu's view of the smartphone world from the perspective of benchmark performance. For the first time, Apple's iPhones have appeared in the chart and immediately, Apple's latest and greatest is already trumping all the rest with its near 133,000 score.

Lumia 850 or 750 might be the RM-1182 just certified in China

Lumia 850 or 750 might be the RM-1182 just certified in China

Under Nokia's regime, there'd be half a dozen or more Lumia smartphones popping up in a year. Now owned by Microsoft, that seems to have cut that number a bit. That doesn't mean, however, that Microsoft won't be churning out new models. In fact, here we have rumors of two Lumia smartphones coming out this year but first making a stop at China's certification agency. Those two, which might either be the Lumia 750 or Lumia 850 or both, are still in addition to the Lumia 650 rumored last month.

Lumia 520 modded to include huge Wi-Fi antenna, CPU fan

Lumia 520 modded to include huge Wi-Fi antenna, CPU fan

Smartphones are often called "computers in our pocket", mostly because of how capable they are today compared to yesteryear's hulking boxes. But if so, should we be even surprised if someone took pains to mod one like a PC? Well, we definitely should be in this case. While most mods involve changing a smartphone's appearance or just software, a certain Mark, a.k.a. Core Down, went the extra mile to mod the hardware too. To the point that he adds a ridiculously big Wi-Fi antenna and a contrastingly small CPU fan on a Lumia 520.

Sony Xperia Z5’s “stunning pink” variant is here

Sony Xperia Z5’s “stunning pink” variant is here

Just a few hours ago, Sony teased that they were celebrating a new beauty. That, and the pink cupcake, was pretty much a dead giveaway that it would be announcing something that many might have already seen coming: a pink Xperia Z5. After all, pink, or rose gold for some, is the new black these days, so It seems only natural that Sony would be adding one to its premium looking Xperia Z5 family. With one more color choice, one that would probably appeal to any gender, the smartphone camera champion might have an expanded reach. Sadly, it doesn't seem to be available to the other members of the Xperia Z5 line, namely the Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia Z5 Compact.

BlackBerry: we’re not abandoning BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry: we’re not abandoning BlackBerry 10

Some side remarks made over at CES 2016 last week have blown up into huge news. For example, Lenovo's "retiring" of the Motorola brand. And then we have BlackBerry CEO John Chen's comments on future BlackBerry devices, with the notable absence of any mention of the company's homegrown BlackBerry 10 OS. Naturally, that has led to speculation on the company's possible full time switch to Android, much to the chagrin of some long time BB10 fans. Now Chen is setting the record straight that they are not ditching BB10 OS. At least not yet and not this year.
