After using the Galaxy S5 for a couple of weeks, here's what I think of it: good evolution, solid camera performance, very good battery life, out-of-this-world display and the ability to survive what kills 50% of smartphones today: water.

And just like that, a glimpse of the first 2560x1440 "productized" smartphone appears

What I think of the new HTC One (M8): Exquisite design, excellent camera app and sublime night-time photos, good battery life. A near-perfect smartphone if you don't require high-megapixel photos.

If true, this would be the first step in a whole new world: +Android  and +Windows Phone handset sharing the same hardware, thus allowing handset makers to focus all their design mojo on better products. +Qualcomm enabled this for its Snapdragon hardware partners at MWC14. Like this rumor, a lot!
HTC hasn’t exactly been churning out Windows Phone devices, but time and again it has reiterated its commitment to Microsoft’s...

What, the same hardware can run different software? Mind blown.

And that's the one case of recording that you'd think would be totally legit. Get bullied - prove it - get condemned by the law #sick . Are #googleglass users going to be convicted of illegal wiretapping too?

The only purpose of the iPhone 5C was to make Apple's manufacturing life easier. It brings little value to the consumer and guess what, people are not stupid. Apple has to make it significantly cheaper. I'm recommend anyone looking at the 5c to spend $100 more and the the 5s. No brainer.

"Picture two iPhone users. One has a spanking new iPhone 5S, the other has an iPhone 5 that he bought last year. What do you see? Two smartphone users of equally discerning taste who, at different times, bought the top-of-the-line product. The iPhone 5 user isn’t déclassé, he’s just waiting for the upgrade window to open.

Now, replace the iPhone 5 with an iPhone 5C. We see two iPhones bought at the same time… but the 5C owner went for the cheaper, plastic model."

From this great column from JLG
