The Super-Sized Chart: Meet the Largest Smartphones on the Planet

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

As pertains to large-screened smartphones, a curious sense of insecurity has taken root in the smartphone industry, and it's not so much about the size, but rather the way we deal with it. More specifically, the way we dealt with it in the past has come to haunt many a tech blogger.

Does anyone remember the 4.65-inch Galaxy Nexus? The 4.7-inch HTC Titan? These were the 'crazy' phablets of days past. Today, these are both considered medium-sized flagships. In just a few short years, we went from being horrified at the thought of anything exceedi

Future Android Phones Trend - Borderless

Monday, May 18, 2015

Announced last month as ZTE's most innovative smartphone to date, the Nubia Z9 is already available to buy in China, and will soon be released in the US.

Besides Nubia Z9 from ZTE, there are more borderless smartphones: Sony Xperia P2, Letv Superphone, Meizu MX5.

Monday, April 20, 2015

It was only mentioned in passing at the Google I/O developers conference, but Google announced the ability for smartphones running Android M with USB Type-C (Apple simply calls it USB-C) ports to recharge other smartphones. The potential here is enormous.

4 comments Monday, April 20, 2015

After years of fast expansion and building up mobile phone production lines with a huge number of money, some local OEM manufactures from the southern part of China are realizing that the market is hitting saturation and need to lower their price points just to remain competitive.

It's seemingly that the situation of these local OEM factories is not cheerful. News from ZDnet years ago indicates, some of OEM manufacturers from Shenzhen and Dongguan, in which China's OEM businesses are commonly located, were competing for orders in very low pr
