If we showed you a picture of the rumored HTC M4 right now, you would just think it's the One. Since HTC's newest flagship has such a fantastic design, it only makes sense (I really love that pun when talking about HTC) that the company would apply the same design elements to other handsets, as well – but the M4 is essentially a direct copy, only smaller. So it should be perfect for those who don't like huge phones. Read More
LG has an event coming up in New York City on May 1st. That is exactly six days from today. And do you know what it's going to announce? The Optimus G Pro for the US. But if just knowing that isn't enough, pictures and full details of the device have hit the 'net today, leaving essentially nothing for LG to actually announce next week.
So, there's the phone, sporting full AT&T branding. Read More
Update: It looks like Facebook has killed the leak remotely. Users who installed it are now reporting that their feeds have gone dark. Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted.
Facebook Home, the company's trumpeted home screen replacement effort, has been a popular point of discussion since before it was announced.
For those who missed the announcement, Facebook is looking to replace your device's normal launcher with a continuous in-your-face social bonanza, featuring a huge news feed on your lock screen, a new pop-up chat called Chat Heads, and pretty complete integration with the social network, allowing for status, photo, and other updates on the fly.

Who's ready for the Facebook phone?! Honestly, it really doesn't matter either way – it's coming whether you want it to or not. And as much as people are trash-talking this upcoming device, one thing's still pretty certain: everyone is curious about it. What's it going to be like? How much Facebook are we talking about here? Should I be afraid? While we can't answer or quantify all of those, we can shed a little light as to what the UI should look like thanks to a new post by @evleaks over at 9to5Google. Read More
As with any exciting new flagship device, it was only a matter of time before Samsung's recently-unveiled Galaxy S4 got the system dump treatment. Sharing the goodies this time (having already leaked S Voice, wallpapers, and ringtones) is SamMobile.com, who claims to have an "insider" that provided the leaked dump. According to SamMobile, the system dump is based on the S4's latest test firmware, affectionately called I9500XXUAMCH, built just a few days ago on March 23rd and based on Android 4.2.2 JDQ39.

T-Mobile customers have been waiting for what seems like ages to get their hands on some sweet, sweet Long Term Evolution data speeds. In five days, the wait is over... assuming you live in one of seven disparate states and cities in the lower forty-eight. According to a leaked document posted by TmoNews (which has an excellent record for this sort of thing) T-Mobile's networks in Houston, TX, Las Vegas NV, Phoenix, AZ, Kansas City, MO, San Jose, CA, Baltimore, MD and Washington DC will activate next Tuesday, March 26th.

Well, that didn't take long. Just a week after Samsung announced its newest flagship phone, we get rumors of the Mini version of the same. As before, it's not just a smaller version of the phone, but a lower-specced version as well. In fact, in terms of the display, the rumored specs are much lower. 960x540 to the tune of 256ppi. In other words, exactly half the resolution (the GS4 packs 1920x1080) and a little more than half the ppi (441ppi). Read More
Sprint is testing a device from ZTE tentatively called the Quantum with model number N8910, Android Police learned recently. The Quantum has mid to high-end specs with its 5" 720p screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4, a 13MP camera, NFC, and Sprint's 4G LTE.
The device runs Android 4.1.2, which isn't currently the latest iteration of Android, but in line with most newer devices on the market today outside of the Nexus line and the Galaxy S4. Read More
In the short time leading up to a new flagship device, the likelihood of a credible leak tends to skyrocket. With mere hours before the Samsung Galaxy S IV is unveiled, 19 high quality photos and 4 videos have made their way into the world. The pictures have excellent lighting, well chosen angles, and spec-rich text bubbles - there is no denying that they look like shots for the Chinese market. Read More
The Galaxy S IV should be unveiled in roughly 2.5 days, and, as we expected, the leaks just keep on coming. Of course, the problem with Samsung's flagship Galaxy device launches is it's pretty much impossible to figure out whether what we're seeing is the real design or not due to multiple prototypes and a veil of secrecy that I daresay tops even Apple's.
Today, we have a video of the very same alleged Chinese dual-SIM variant of the SGS IV GT-i9502 that we saw yesterday when it posed for a surprisingly high-quality photoshoot (I guess the blurrycam was broken). Read More
