HTC Desire 826 hands-on: Ultrapixel selfie machine

HTC Desire 826 hands-on: Ultrapixel selfie machine

The team at HTC haven't brought their next super-hero phone to CES 2015 (not yet, at least), but they have brought a bit of a surprising piece of hardware. This is the HTC Desire 826, another selfie-friendly device the likes of which we've seen in a very similar model - the HTC Desire EYE. Unlike the EYE, this Desire 826 is coming to market with two different models, each with a different front-facing camera. One replicates the EYE with 13-megapixels, the other with 4-Ultrapixels, the same as the back-facing camera on the HTC One.

ASUS rolls out Zenfone 2, enhanced camera experience

ASUS rolls out Zenfone 2, enhanced camera experience

During their CES announcement, ASUS laid out the details on their incoming Zenfone 2. The ZenFone is pretty impressive at first blush, too, boasting a high screen-to-body ratio, meaning more to look at and less to hold. They’ve also got an improved camera on the new Zenfone, and some new technology that could have oyur pics looking better and brighter than ever. It’s also 64-bit, but not carrying a Snapdragon processor. ASUS went with an Intel Atom processor for the Zenfone 2.

ASUS ZenFone Zoom packs 3x optical zoom into Android

ASUS ZenFone Zoom packs 3x optical zoom into Android

ASUS was gleefully teasing something special for its flagship CES 2015 smartphone, and sure enough it is, with the ASUS ZenFone Zoom squeezing in a 3x optical zoom. The new Android handset has a 5.5-inch Full HD display and runs the latest version, 5.0 Lollipop, but it's the backside which we're most intrigued by, with its 13-megapixel camera and laser auto-focus system. The latter we've seen on handsets from LG, such as the G3 and today's G Flex 2, but an optical zoom in a smartphone is altogether more unusual.

Archos unleashes slew of new 4G devices

Archos unleashes slew of new 4G devices

Archos might not get the amount of love some bigger name companies do, but it has faithfully released products over the years, and this CES 2015 is no exception. The company seems to have concentrated its efforts this year, however, zeroing in on 4G products in particular with several new products including the new Archos Diamond smartphone and 80b Helium Android tablet. All the devices bring with them modest hardware and, more importantly for some, a modest price tag to go with them.

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

I guarantee that the first time you hold the LG G Flex 2 in your hand, you're going to ask yourself why aren't there more phones with a curved display. And that's LG's hook. Instead of making you read this entire hands-on to really know how I feel about the G Flex 2 (though, you know, you really should read it anyway), I'm going to just come right out and tell you that it's beautiful to look at and it's beyond comfortable to hold. I'm not just saying this just because this is another new device coming to market but because, for the first time in a while now, I feel that LG has hit a home run.

ASUS dual-camera phone teases optical zoom

ASUS dual-camera phone teases optical zoom

ASUS may not be the first name you associate with either smartphones or photography, but the company could change all that with a new handset featuring an optical zoom. Teasing for the new phone began last month, most notably flashing a curious dual-lens camera on the back. While some speculated that it could be a return of 3D mobile photography - something consumers rarely warmed to - a new teaser indicates it's something far more unusual, with ASUS seemingly managing to squeeze an optical zoom system into its smartphone form-factor.
