Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition going for a truly intergalactic price

Post by +Matthew Benson 
Earlier this month Samsung announced plans to release a limited edition run of Iron Man-branded Galaxy S6 Edge units, and despite not having formally launched just yet, we're already seeing the first units hit Ebay at quite extraordinary prices. As of the time of this writing, of the 7 different auctions for Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition, the highest is sitting pretty at $7,100, with over 2 days remaining before the auction ends. It nee...

Galaxy S6 to gain better manual exposure control in Android 5.1 update

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Whether you're an Apple fan or a Samsung fan, one thing is certain - the iPhone has offered one of the best camera experiences on a smartphone for quite some time now. Though, just recently, that may have changed for some users after the launch of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Samsung's two newest flagships not only brought a much-improved camera experience over their predecessor, but they were arguably the first Android phones to give the current i...

Sony explains why the Z4 was rebranded to the Xperia Z3+

Postby +Nirave Gondhia 
Prior to the launch of the Xperia Z4 last month, there were many rumors that Sony's next flagship would feature a redesign with new build, better display and a lot more. Then Sony revealed the Xperia Z4 for Japan and essentially, the handset was the Xperia Z3 with a few updated internals yet it came with a name that suggested it was a major upgrade over the past version. Today, Sony has launched the handset in the UK but with the Xperia Z3+ mo...

Now the Mi Band is getting even better with the addition of Google Fit support. Thanks to a new update to the Mi Fit app, the Mi Ba...

Google Spotlight Stories makes its way to the Play Store with support for more devices

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Back when Motorola's Moto X first launched, we got our first taste of the Motorola Spotlight Player app - an immersive application built by ATAP engineers that brings interactive short stories straight to your mobile device. That app is still only compatible with the Moto X, but since the ATAP team is now under Google's ownership, a new version of the app has just been published to the Play Store that brings support for many more Android devices...

+Alex Wohlbruck​ it's an interactive story book. Brilliantly simple but brilliantly clever. Move the phone around (physically get up and move!) in the direction the story takes you for it to continue.

Post by +Andrew Grush 
Last week Xiaomi kicked off a test of its Mi store for the UK, Germany, France, and the United States. The initial test saw the sell of a few select accessories in limited batches.

Verizon Edge now let's you pay it off anytime, no trade-in required to upgrade 

Post by +Andrew Grush 
Verizon Edge was first introduced in the summer of 2013 as a response to T-Mobile’s own uncarrier initiative. Since that time, the program has somewhat evolved, but yesterday Big Red announced a new change that makes the program much more appealing. Currently, you have to wait 30-days after signing up for an Edge program before you can upgrade. Once a month has passed, you’ll have to pay off 75% off a device and trade it in. Needless to say, this...

Just what is a 2.5D screen?

2.5D is an increasingly common marketing term in the mobile market, but what does it actual mean and does it have any advantages over a normal screen?

By +Robert Triggs 
The 2.5D glass trend sounds like stereotypical marketing jargon... how can something exist between two and three dimensional space anyway? However, the term is actually based on a real design factor, it's not just a name used to try and sell you semi-useless screen protectors. 2.5D refers to a slight curvature at the edge of the glass display, also known as a contoured edge. While not an official name for any piece of technology, it is widely ...

The best 2.5D glass I've ever seen on a phone is the one on the IPhone 6 and 6 plus. Feels soo good and much better then all the phones I've used. There's this black plastic piece I think in between the metal and glass on my nexus 6. If it wasn't for the black plastic ring, I would of loved how it felt in the hand
