We saw a number of smartwatches released last year, and the Asus ZenWatch was one of our favorites as it was a bit different from the pack. Like most of its competitors, the battery life wasn’t great, but that may change with the ZenWatch 2 as the company would like to provide you with 7 days worth of juice.
We’re used to seeing smartphone trade-in programs in the states, and companies taking shots at one another. Chinese handset manufacturers usually pick their battles a little closer to home, but a new rumor suggest a Xiaomi trade-in program is in the works, and they want your old iPhone.
Over the past few weeks, a number of photos have hit the net that show a handset rumored to be the HTC One M9. Most share enough common traits to lead folks to believe it’s the real deal, but a new report says we’ve been duped as HTC has been using dummy units.
A few days ago, we told you about the Coolpad Ivvi. The smartphone was thought to be the “thinnest” device around, but that may not be the case. A new TENAA listing has shown us the Coolpad Ivvi specs, and it makes us wonder what the company’s definition of thin is.
Each week, the Samsung Galaxy S6 rumors get a little stronger, and it’s to be expected as we’re only a month away from the company’s next flagship. At this point, we “think” we know about everything there is to know about the device’s innards, and a new report suggests the rear camera is going to be something special.
Right before the calendar changed to 2015, we took a look at a new smartphone in the Iris series from Lava. Another new handset recently appeared on the company’s website with the Lava Iris 350, and we’re going to take a quick look at its specs to see how it stacks up against the previous model.
Last year, a killer game by the name of Monument Valley grabbed a lot of Android gamers attention. As with any popular title, we expected to see “clones” but that hasn’t happened as it’s hard to replicate something that cool. When we first saw Ketchapp’s Skyward arrive on the Play Store, it’s style screamed Monument Valley, but we were pleasantly surprised that it’s on the opposite end of the casual gaming spectrum.
Another week, another handset makes its way through China’s TENAA. Huawei has a number of smartphones set to roll out in the coming months, but the Huawei Y635-TL00 is making its first appearance through a new TENAA listing. It’s not one of the company’s high-end handsets, but it may be a deal when it arrives depending on its price.
If you live in the states or in other parts of the globe, you are probably used to seeing refurbished sales on smartphones and tablets. That’s not the case in some regions like India, but Xiaomi is looking to change that. The first batch of refurbished Xiaomi smartphones have just gone on sale in India, and as you’d expect, they’ve already sold out.
We haven’t covered a Prestigio handset since July of last year, but the company gave us something new to look at today. The Prestigio MultiPhone 5550 Duo specs have been revealed, and the it’s a phablet that may be worth a look depending on your locale.
