Sony Xperia E4g revealed in black and white

This week Sony has revealed their newest Xperia smartphone - and it's not a Z4. This device will be aimed at markets where low-price smartphones are taking over.

There will be a single-SIM version and a dual-SIM version available this Spring in several regions throughout the world - except in the United States, of course.

T-Mobile update page tells you where your Lollipop update is

Everyone wants the latest Android update, Lollipop 5.0. What good is a phone without the latest and greatest update, anyway? Updates can mean more than glossy new icons and added superficial functions. Sometimes, an update can mean the difference between smooth sailing and your favorite app constantly crashing. Recently, some Android device users have been left in the lurch as updates seem to pass them by. Now, T-Mobile users can track their latest Android software update (most likely Lollipop 5.0) on the new software update status page.

T-Mobile teaser confirms “edgy”, “Six Appeal” of Galaxy S6

We've seen quite a few leaks and teasers about the Galaxy S6, some coming from Samsung itself. With MWC 2015 so close, however, even mobile carriers are jumping on the train. T-Mobile has just put up its pre-release email registration page and, while that act itself is nothing newsworthy, the carrier is throwing in a teaser our way as well. It is probably the clearest preview of the Galaxy S6 we've ever had, but, like any good teaser, it still leaves some questions open for us to think about.

LG announces new mid-range smartphones ahead of MWC 2015

MWC 2015 is coming, so LG is doing what it does best: announcing new devices even before the event takes place. The Korean manufacturer may not have an LG G4 prepared next week, but it will try to make us forget about that by distracting us with other devices. For the Barcelona mobile event, LG will be showcasing its new roster of four mid-range smartphones that try to bring LG's popular design and user experiences found mostly in the higher end to a new generation of budget handsets.

Your phone’s power usage can reveal where you’ve been

But a group of researchers from Standford University and Israeli defense group Rafael are proving even something so innocent sounding like your phone's battery consumption can be used to track your movements. The good news is that it's not exactly as easy or as informational as those more dedicated sensors. At least not yet.

Official HTC One M9 images & specs leaked on German retail site

HTC has already confirmed that it will officially reveal its next generation One smartphone at Mobile World Conference in a little over a week, but it seems like one German retailer jumped the gun and accidentally posted the specs and official images on their website early. While the product pages on Cyberport's site for the HTC One M9 have now been taken down, it just wasn't quick enough. The fact that it's this close to HTC's March 1st unveiling, and that retailers often some info early enough to have product listings ready, seems to improve the chances that this is the real deal.

LG G Flex 2 Review – Killer Curves

LG G Flex 2 Review – Killer Curves

First you have to prove you're not a gimmick. Then it's just a matter of proving you're better. LG turned heads with the G Flex last year, an Android smartphone with a banana-like bend to it, only to be stung with criticism that its big idea was actually just too big for the hand. Now, 2015 brings a new curved flagship, the LG G Flex 2, distilling the best of the concept into something altogether more usable. As the SlashGear Smartphone of CES 2015 our expectations of the G Flex 2 were undoubtedly high, but does the reality live up to the promise?
