HTC Desire 820 video walkthrough

6
Desire 820

Back at IFA 2014, HTC unveiled the Desire 820, the latest device to lead its lineup of mid-range handsets. Like its predecessor, the Desire 816, the 820 is built around a 5.5-inch 720p display, however the design's been tightened up with a slimmer profile and new color accents. And the internals have been substantially upgraded too — there's a 64-bit-capable octa-core Snapdragon 615 chip running the show, while RAM and internal storage get bumped up to 2GB and 16GB respectively. We've taken the Desire 820 for a spin, and we're in the process of putting together our full review. For an early look at the device, check out our hands-on video after the break!

More Nexus 6 stock coming each Wednesday, Google says

148
Nexus 6

If you're still wondering how it is Google was able to do another Nexus phone launch without being able to stave off the retail gremlins — that is, keep the things on sale for more than a few minutes — there's hope. An update this afternoon to the Nexus 6 page on Google Play says more are coming on Wednesdays.

We are getting more Nexus 6 devices in stock as soon as possible. To make things simpler for you, we will work to make more devices available each Wednesday and encourage you to visit the site then.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Get those F5 keys ready, kids.

Thanks, Ryan!

Mini review: Sharp Aquos Crystal on Boost Mobile

30
Aquos Crystal.

With its innovative bezel-free display, the Sharp Aquos Crystal makes up for its shortcomings with a forward-thinking design and an affordable price tag

Sharp has long been a company synonymous with its LCD panels, so its no surprise that its first major foray into the U.S. smartphone market, the Aquos Crystal, puts that long history of innovation to good use. Now available on Boost Mobile, along with Sprint and Virgin Mobile, Sharp's latest offers a flagship-worthy design and a solid list of specs for an affordable, contract-free $149. It may be far from perfect, but does its eye-catching bezel-free display make up for its shortcomings? Here's our fast take on the Sharp Aquos Crystal.
