A report from a couple of days ago had suggested that the Samsung Galaxy A-series of smartphones would be launched in November. Well as it turns out the report was close enough as Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy A series, which for now consists of the Samsung Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5.

There was no mention of the alleged higher-end Samsung Galaxy A7, but presumably that will be coming at a later date, so for now we guess we will have these two devices to contend with. Moving along, Samsung claims that these new A-series of handsets have been designed for a younger and more trendy crowd in mind. Read full post →Samsung Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 Officially Announced

iphone6 bend testWhen the iPhone 6 Plus was launched, it had one huge problem – bending. There were numerous reports of people bending their new phones which led to it being dubbed “Bendgate”.

While Apple has yet to officially acknowledge it, there are some users who are reporting that Apple could have quietly strengthened the device without making it public.

google wallet transfersThere is nothing quite like the wallet – in there, some of us store plenty of personal and private information, not to mention a line of credit, be it in the form of cash as well as other instruments such as cheques as well as the all important credit cards.

firephone display2 640x426There are many factors when it comes to the success or downfall of a particular piece of hardware, and where smartphones are concerned, this extremely cut-throat business environment leaves very little room for error. In fact, it was not too long ago that the Amazon Fire Phone received a writedown of $170 million – which is not going to hurt the company’s bottomline too much, but it is still a massive bleeding of money no matter which angle you look at it from. The device did not manage to pick up high scores in reviews, not to mention garnering a fair amount of customer review scores that resided on the low end side of things, not to mention taking a massive critical hit, if you will, on its unsold stock in the recent quarterly report. Amazon’s reason behind the issues behind the Fire Phone? Its price, apparently.

xiaomi budget tabletXiaomi, a company that has been speculated to being the third largest smartphone manufacturing company in the world, did roll out their very first version of a tablet earlier in 2014. It does look as though the company could now be developing a second model that will arrive with a larger sized display – we are talking about 9.2” here, which would be really huge, alongside a less powerful processor – but that should not matter, since it ought to be able to help get the job done in the process – without breaking the bank, that is.
