Considering the timing and differences between the phone, it's a tough upgrade decision to ponder.
Samsung runs two distinct flagship lines, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, each offering different qualities to appeal to different kinds of users. The Galaxy S series is the phone for a broader base of users, with a more average-sized screen, a few leading features and a neat design, while the Galaxy Note series turns all of the knobs to 11 with a huge screen, S Pen input, cutting-edge features for the large screen and tons of power.
The phones are released on a staggered cycle, outdoing each other in some areas as they're released about six months apart each year — and that makes the decision a bit fuzzy on whether it's at all worth an upgrade. The phones are in different classes in terms of features and sizes, but we still want to explore the idea of upgrading from a Note 4 to a Galaxy S6 — let's talk about it.
Cyanogen is now pushing out their take on Lollipop, Cyanogen OS 12, for the Micromax Yureka.
Starting today owners of the Micromax Yureka will be able to update their devices to the official Cyanogen OS 12, bringing Lollipop to their devices. Cyanogen OS 12 is the companies take on Android 5.0 Lollipop, with some customization of course.
Non-removable batteries are meant to stay in the device, but since people still want to try and remove it T-Mobile has deciced to stop selling the ZTE Zmax.
People love being able to remove batteries from their phones, and some will even do it when the battery is not meant to be removed. T-Mobile has put a stop to selling the ZTE Zmax for now because people are attempting to remove the battery that is meant to stay in the device.
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.
