Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge has the world’s best smartphone camera, according to DxOMark

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
In our full review, we were extremely impressed with the 16MP rear-facing camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and it turns out the folks at DxOMark seem to think so as well. After extensively testing the rear camera, the Galaxy S6 Edge has become the top-ranked device in popular camera tester DxOMark's database. In fact, that means Samsung holds the top two spots on the list, with the Galaxy Note 4 coming in second place. DxOMark's score...

Oppo will officially unveil the R7 this May

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Traditionally, Oppo hasn't been the most secretive company when it comes to product leaks, and that's especially true with the 'bezel-less' phone we've been hearing so much about. The smartphone, which is now confirmed as the R7, has been leaked and shown off in multiple photo sets and videos over the past few weeks. It sounds like we're now getting closer to an official unveiling, thanks to two new teaser images the company set live on the inter...

SwiftKey announces ‘Greenhouse’ experimental software hub alongside new Clarity keyboard

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
In what seems like a never-ending stream of updates, the SwiftKey team has just introduced a new plan that aims to bring experimental ideas to the masses earlier than usual. Dubbed the SwiftKey Greenhouse, the new experimental software hub gives the keyboard company a place to introduce new, innovative ideas without the need to update its existing standard and beta applications. Alongside the introduction of the Greenhouse, the SwiftKey team h...

ASUS ZenWatch 2 will reportedly launch next year in sizes for both men and women

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
One of the best Android Wear watches to date, the ASUS ZenWatch, was announced last September at IFA 2014. While it seems the tech community expects a yearly release cycle for just about every new product, it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer than 12 months to get our hands on ASUS' next smartwatch. ASUS CEO Jerry Shen reportedly told NDTV Gadgets that, while the new smartwatch is in the works, the company doesn't plan to launch the Z...

Google aims to make selling your patents easier with the Patent Purchase Promotion

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
In an effort to bolster its already gigantic patent portfolio, Google today announced the Patent Purchase Promotion. The company describes this as an 'experimental marketplace' for patents that aims to remove as much friction from the patent market as possible. How so? Well, the patent market is already a very frustrating thing, especially for smaller patent owners who sometimes end up working with patent trolls. People can lose money very quickl...

Galaxy S6 Edge demand leads Samsung to open third factory for screen production

Post by +Andrew Grush 
Last year, Samsung found its way into a number of bleak articles proclaiming that the company’s mobile division was heading downward and that a big change was needed if the Korean giant wanted to stay on top. This criticism was mostly aimed at the Samsung Galaxy S5, which went on to perform quite modestly compared to initial projections for the device. Thankfully, with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung seems to have finally delivered the...

Leak points to Xperia P successor with high-end specs and a 4,240 mAh battery

If a report out of China is accurate, Sony could be resurrecting the Xperia P line in the form of the P2: a device sporting a similar design, top specs, and a massive 4,240 mAh battery.

By +Bogdan Petrovan 
Remember the Xperia P? We don’t blame you if you don’t. The device launched in February 2012 along the Xperia U and it was supposed to be the “middle child” in Sony’s NXT trio of devices. The mid-ranger received a tepid welcoming and it soon faded off the radar, especially after Sony adopted a brand new design concept with the Xperia Z. Now if a report out of China is accurate, Sony could be resurrecting the Xperia P line in the form of the P2...
