Update April 17, 2015: Now that we've got a day's worth of use under our belts, well, results are mixed as to whether the Samsung Galaxy S6 battery life is still bad, or whether it's improved. A number of folks in this forum thread believe that, indeed, they're seeing better results after Samsung updated its Push app. That's pretty much par for the course, especially when you're looking at things in this manner. We'll continue to keep an eye on this.
Original story: If your Samsung Galaxy S6 battery life has been less than impressive in these initial weeks, well, you're not alone. We've got any number of threads in our GS6 and GS6 edge forums that point to disappointing times before needing to recharge.
LG really wants you to "see the great" in its latest teaser video for the LG G4, which focuses on the device's QHD display.
In typical teaser fashion, LG doesn't reveal a whole lot about the G4 here. In the rather short video, LG teases a QHD display that's 25 percent brighter and has a 20 percent wider color range when compared to previous QHD displays from the manufacturer — noting that "the difference is obvious."
Our first look at Huawei's flagship phone for 2015
Android outlier Huawei has put out some surprisingly solid devices in the past 12 months. The Chinese manufacturer's 2014 flagship, the Ascend P7 was a decent phone marred by stuttery performance and dated software. But the Mate 7 and Honor 6 Plus, which followed later in the year, proved that this lesser-known brand could, in some areas, compete with the big boys. Now Huawei's back with a new flagship phone for 2015, and it appears the gap is closing further.
Head past the break for our initial hands-on impressions of the new Huawei P8.
Huawei has received approval from the FCC on a new device which is very similar to the recently announced Huawei P8.
Huawei officially announced the P8 smartphone today, and the FCC has now approved a new smartphone which bears stunning resemblance to the device. From the image included in the FCC listing there are a few minor changes to note, such as the camera flash moving to the opposite side.
Besides the P8, Huawei had a surprise for us today in London. A big surprise. A freaking 6.8-inch surprise. That would be the Huawei P8 Max.
And you read that right. A nearly-7-inch phone. Huawei's not exactly immune to busting out huge phones like this — big even by today's standards — but large phone is large.
It's sporting a 4360 mAh battery that Huawei says should get you more than 2 days' use on a single charge. It's got an 83 percent screen to body ratio and is just 6.8mm thin. And 94 percent of the body is metal, with the display covered by Gorilla Glass 4.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owners on Verizon Wireless will be happy to see the Lollipop update hitting their devices.
Lollipop has been rolling out for more and more devices daily, and now Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users on Verizon can join in on the update fun. The update bumps the device up to Android 5.0, bringing quite a few changes along with it.
Today Huawei will unveil its next flagship smartphone at an event in London, and we'll be covering it live.
At the London launch event, the Chiense manufacturer is expected to launch the Ascend P8, the latest in its line of high-end Android phones. We're expecting Huawei to build on recent premium offerings like the Honor 6+ and Ascend Mate 7 by packing some of these phones' standout features into a smaller chassis.
We'll have to wait a little longer to find out what's in store for us, though. The action kicks off at 3pm London time — that's 10am EDT, or 7am on the West coast. Head past the break for our liveblog and livestream!
AT&T's no-contract subsidiary Cricket Wireless will join the list of US carriers that are selling the Samsung Galaxy S6 on Friday, April 24.
