0

We were a tad bit confused when Kyocera announced a phone called the Torque for Europe considering that a phone by that name had been released back at the begging of 2013. Well it turns out this is simply a confusion of naming rather than re-releasing an old phone — the Kyocera Torque for Europe is simply the recently-announced Kyocera Brigadier available on Verizon.

We've been playing with the Galaxy S6 here at Mobile World Congress, and we've had a chance to see all the little changes Samsung's made to TouchWiz. Some are major, some are minor; you'll find the more notable ones in our photo essay after the break.
