Relive our HTC One M9 video preview!


Much has been said about the new HTC One M9. And we've got a few thoughts as well. Here they are, in moving pictures.

While the jury's still out on the HTC One M9 — and likely will be for a little while now — it's probably a good idea to take a couple extra minutes and give our initial preview a gander. We spent a solid 36 hours with the M9 here in Barcelona, Spain. It's perhaps an imperfect device (what isn't, really), but still addresses a number of issues we had with 2014's HTC One M8.

The question is how does it stand up to more through use. We'll find out soon enough, to be sure. For now, enjoy.

SanDisk's new embedded iNAND flash storage boasts stupid fast write speeds


There are bottlenecks throughout the modern smartphone, but SanDisk is working to make their path as wide as possible with their new iNAND 7132 embedded flash storage.

While SanDisk is well known for their consumer memory products — SD cards, microSD cards, USB flash drives, replacement SSDs, and so forth — a major (and under-appreciated by the general consumer) part of their business is actually in selling embedded flash storage to device manufacturers.

Alcatel OneTouch announces the 6-inch, Cyanogen OS-powered Hero 2+

Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+

It's a big week for the folks at Cyanogen Inc. as it enters into a partnership with another Android phone manufacturer.

Hot on the heels of a new partnership with Qualcomm, the Cyanogen team have announced a device with Alcatel OneTouch. The Hero 2+ is a North American remix on the original Hero 2, which we took a look at back in September. This new version swaps out the MT8392 found in its predecessor for the MT6592 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, and that's just about where the hardware changes end. All the changes that earn this device that extra "+" lie in software, as Alcatel OneTouch will be shipping this new version of the Hero 2 with Cyanogen OS.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua hands-on

Xperia M4 Aqua

Sony's latest mid-ranger, announced at Mobile World Congress, is a 64-bit waterproof phone running Lollipop out of the box

Sony didn't surprise us with a new high-end flagship phone at Mobile World Congress this year, however it did introduce a solid new mid-range handset — the Xperia M4 Aqua. With a 5-inch 720p display and a plastic back panel, the M4 Aqua sits squarely in the middle of Sony's Android portfolio, between the Xperia E4 at the low end and the Z3 series at the high end.

A resolution of 720p might not sound particularly impressive in a market dominated by Quad HD panels at its most expensive price range, but the M4 Aqua's screen is not to be sniffed at. As HTC has done with its Desire series, Sony's shipping a somewhat lower-resolution panel, but one with bright, vivid colors that's still going to be more than good enough for most things you'll want to do on a phone.

Intel MWC

Intel's latest mobile chipset is for smartphones and tablets alike, with 64-bit processing for all.

After blowing us away with how enjoyable the Dell Venue 8 is to use, Intel is in a perfect position to impress everyone with what they have planned next. The Intel presentation at Mobile World Congress is filled with announcements for the future of nearly every facet of their business, but it's the mobile bits that excite us the most.

This year Intel is showing off the brand new Atom x3 processor, a fully integrated SoC aimed squarely at the next generations of mobile devices. It's Intel's first SoC with an integrated modems that support global availability, meaning support for 3G and 4G LTE networks is finally a part of Intel's lineup.

Hands-on with the LG Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy


LG pre-announced its new mid-range smartphone lineup ahead of MWC 2015, and now that we're at the show we've had a chance to put our hands on the four new devices from the manufacturer.
