z4-z3-compare-1The Sony Xperia Z4 was missing from Sony’s announcements at MWC 2015, although the company did recently confirm that the handset will be announced later this year. It is unclear if Sony will be going with a major redesign for the Xperia Z4, but thanks to an alleged leaked photo of the handset’s frame, it certainly does not look that way.

As you can see in the images and below, there does not appear to be any major changes in design of the frame of the Xperia Z4, at least compared to the Xperia Z3. Both appear to be identical in design but according to sources, the Xperia Z4 is said to be 1mm slimmer, but we’re not sure if it is obvious or noticeable in these photos, let alone in our hands.

samsung logoWhen Samsung announced the Galaxy S6, it did not come as a surprise to see that Qualcomm was not the company powering the handset. This seemed to line up with earlier rumors that Samsung might have ditched Qualcomm for their own brand of Exynos chipsets. So does that mean Samsung will now use Exynos chipsets in all future handsets?

Maybe not as according to a recent rumor, Samsung might have approached MediaTek to supply them with chipsets. As it stands MediaTek’s chipsets can be found in HTC and Sony’s handsets but has yet to find their way into Samsung’s phones, but if the rumors are to be believed, Samsung could have placed some orders with MediaTek.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the latest handset to be announced by Samsung and while we loved the handset in our review of it, it seems that there might be some problems with the handset that a simple software update can’t fix. According to a report from G For Games, they cite another report from South Korea which claims that there are hardware issues plaguing the Galaxy S6’s display.

Basically the problem here is that the edges of the Galaxy S6 are not registering touches. While most of our input tends to be more towards the middle of the phone, having the edges fail to register touch can be quite annoying as there are many apps out there that might require interaction from the edge, such as swiping in from the left or right.
