BlackBerry Priv versus iPhone 6s Plus: they couldn't be more different

106

Two of the biggest names in the mobile industry — from different eras — have released some of the best hardware we've seen all year.

As we've discussed before, there's a very real chance more than a few people found themselves seriously considering either a BlackBerry or an iPhone this year, and for the first time in a long time that's a seriously tough choice for just about anyone to make. The BlackBerry Priv surprised a lot of people this year, demonstrating that BlackBerry still has plenty to offer the smartphone world. At the same time, Apple's latest iPhone is once again the high end sweetheart that flew off the shelves this year.

ASUS ZenFone Zoom hands-on redux: At last, we get to use the camera

ASUS ZenFone Zoom

ASUS's ZenFone Zoom's camera system is unique, but is it a strong enough selling point?

It's been over a year since the ASUS ZenFone Zoom was announced at CES 2015, and now at CES 2016 we got to spend a bit of time with the ZenFone Zoom and its zooming camera. This isn't the first time we've gone hands-on with the ZenFone Zoom — we spent a bit of time with it at IFA 2015 — but this was the first time we've been allowed to actually use the camera.

Let's take a look.

Samsung Galaxy S7: Why three versions of Samsung's next flagship could make sense

Exploring the logic behind a Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge and S7 edge+

Mobile World Congress

As we count down to Mobile World Congress, the biggest smartphone show of the year, the pace of leaks surrounding the next wave of Android phones is quickening. The show's biggest announcement is likely to be a new flagship phone from Samsung — a successor to the almost year-old Galaxy S6. Last year the GS6 came in two flavors, a regular flat version, and the curvy s6 edge. And as Galaxy S7 time rolls around, there are whispers that we might see at least three S7 variants.

Multiple variants of a new Galaxy S phone aren't a new phenomenon. But launching the regular, curved edge and bigger curved edge+ models all at the same time would be a big deal for a number of reasons.

Nexus 6P versus iPhone 6s Plus: the big-screen showdown

226

Choosing between the best from Google and Apple is a lot of fun this year.

Watching Google and Apple compete for our attention is interesting for a number of reasons, but the biggest one has to be how vastly different their approaches are to certain things. Smartphones have been a fascinating example of this over the past few years, especially to watch as Apple and Google slowly move toward one another from these opposing perspectives. This year Google and Apple both released a pair of smartphones, one smaller and one larger.

If you take a look at the larger of these two offerings, the Huawei-made Nexus 6P and Apple's iPhone 6s Plus, you'll find a pair of phones built with different goals in mind that come together to be remarkably similar. As we appreciate those similarities, it's not hard to see which company is going to be making significant changes in the next generation and why.

Amazon offers up 32GB Nexus 6 for $250, 64GB for $300

88

If you're looking for a good deal on the Nexus 6, Amazon is currently offering the device at a steep discount. For the 32GB version, you're looking at a price of $250, while the 64GB Nexus 6 comes in at $300. While that's not the cheapest we've seen on 2014's flagship Nexus (Black Friday saw that price dip a further $50), it's still a pretty darn good deal.

If you're interested in picking up either variant, you can hit up the Amazon link below to get started. There's no indication on how long the price drop will stay in place, but we're sure to see more deals as retailers look to offload stock.
