Samsung released the Galaxy Gear a few short months ago, but the company has just made its second-generation smartwatches official. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo have dropped more than the Galaxy branding – these devices aren't running Android at all. Samsung has made the jump to Tizen for its wearables.
Samsung leaks have been harder to come by as of late - with the Galaxy S5 probably arriving at a press event on Monday, we still haven't seen hide nor hair of the hardware. But perennial leaker Evleaks has just posted two photos of what appear to be successors to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. According to a later tweet, the watches may drop the standard "Galaxy" branding. Read More
While all signs point to a Galaxy S5 unveiling on Monday at Samsung's Unpacked event at MWC, we still know very little about the phone itself. Leaks have been hard to come by, and we still don't really have a definitive sense of what the device will even look like. Of course, consumers are watching this release closely - the Galaxy S series of devices is the second most-popular smartphone on earth. Read More
When it comes right down to it, there’s a pretty short list of things everybody simply expects a cell phone to be able to do well: making and receiving calls and text messages. We must be able to trust that our phones aren’t failing at the most basic types of communication. Unfortunately, some people have found that the Nexus 5 can’t always be trusted to let them know when somebody is calling or texting them. Read More
The LG G Flex may be more of a novelty than a true flagship, but if you want one, you can get a pretty decent price on Amazon. Right now Amazon Wireless has the AT&T version of the curvy, bendy phone for just $149.99 with a new contract, which is a full 50% off of AT&T's retail price. Not bad for a phone that's been available for less than a month. Read More
Cell phone service is expensive, especially if you choose to go with one of America's bigger providers. If you get your phones from Amazon today (which is a pretty good idea in any case), you can alleviate that just a little bit when activating a new line on AT&T or Verizon. For the time being, Amazon customers can get a $100 credit on their carrier bills when buying a new phone and activating a new line of service, or adding a new line to an existing account. Read More
We're 99% certain that Samsung's Galaxy S5 will be revealed in Barcelona on Monday. And with every new iteration of the company's flagship, Samsung has also either updated or remade their company user interface, shifting elements and aesthetics to match the new hardware. If you're a regular user of the proprietary Samsung Apps (or if you just see it in your app tray and ignore it like everyone else), you might be mildly interested to know that the app portal has been updated.

Nothing like a little robot-on-robot violence, right? Kongregate's newest game on Android had a good run over on iOS and the name tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it – Endless Boss Fight. You fight bosses, endlessly.
Your main character is a little punching robot that has to do battle with big, heavily armed robot boss machines. You duck, weave, and punch your way through one after another until you lose. Read More
If you've been eyeing the Qualcomm Toq, but $350 was a bit much for your taste, it might be time to take another look. Qualcomm just dropped the price of its smartwatch by a Benjamin, leaving it at a more palatable $250 with free shipping. This puts the full-color wearable at a mere $1 above the price of its closest competitor, the black & white-only Pebble Steel.
The timing may not be a coincidence after a report from Bloomberg suggested HTC is making a smartwatch based on the Toq and plans to show it off at Mobile World Congress. Read More
Earlier today, we reported that KitKat updates for the HTC One on both T-Mobile and AT&T had received technical approval, meaning a rollout was imminent.
Anxious HTC One owners on T-Mobile shouldn't have long to wait now - the official rollout has begun, with confirmation coming from users on XDA and Google+ (1, 2, 3). Read More
