LG just revealed the latest flagship to bear the V-name, and on paper, it looks to be an incredibly iterative improvement over last year's phone (or this spring's phone). Available Friday, June 8th, the new V35 ThinQ packs the latest Snapdragon 845 into a body that is otherwise functionally identical to the previous V30S ThinQ, down to the same camera, battery, and display. And AT&T would like you to spend $900 to get one. Read More

That successor, likely to be named U12 and codenamed 'Imagine,' was apparently shown off at a 5G industry event about a month ago.

It's been about a year since we first heard about the new Nokia phones, including the Nokia 6. Although it took a bit longer for the phone to hit stateside, it rounded out HMD Global's new Android portfolio reasonably well. What few disadvantages we might have seen appear to be fixed in the 2018 version, which just leaked in a detailed product listing by Chinese retailer Suning. Read More
Earlier this year, BlackBerry released the DTEK50, a rebadged Alcatel Idol 4 with some extra BlackBerry security software on it. That phone didn't fare too well with critics. Now, the security-crazy company has mistakenly published the specs of the DTEK60, which looks to be a plus-sized, upgraded DTEK50. For what it's worth, the URL of the DTEK60's specifications page includes "donotpublish.html". Read More

Yet, here in the US, only three have wide enough appeal to have their flagship devices sold by all 4 major US carriers (well, in HTC's case 3 out of 4). Those manufacturers are, of course, Samsung, LG, and HTC.

To help you with that decision, I've prepared a comparative spec chart so you can see how these three devices measure up to one another. Read More
Is there anything left to know about the upcoming HTC One (M9)? Not really. We've already seen the device in a video comparison against its older siblings, the M7 and M8, and in some leaked images and videos from @Upleaks. We know it's going to look almost exactly like its predecessors and that it will ditch the Duo Camera on the back in favor of a single large sensor.
But, in case you want further confirmation that this is what HTC will indeed unwrap later today at its MWC conference, Best Buy has let its own M9 product page go live. It's a listing for the AT&T-compatible grey variant of the phone, with 32GB of storage and priced at $649.99. Read More
The foldable cardboard VR kits Google gave away at I/O 2014 weren't just a one-off stunt. Today, in its developers blog, Google had some big announcements for the home-brewed virtual reality viewer.
First up, Google has grouped a handful of Cardboard-compatible apps into their own collection on the Play Store. The Cardboard app itself has also received an update, with the ability to discover cardboard apps on the Play Store, and launch them directly from the viewer.
Google has also introduced new Cardboard SDKs for Android and Unity in an effort to make developing for the cardboard box a little bit easier. Read More
