HTC One ME

After launching the One M9+ and the polycarbonate One E9+ in China earlier this year, HTC has announced another high-end device in the country, the One ME.

Design-wise, the One ME shares a lot of similarities with the One M9+, including a fingerprint sensor at the front that and BoomSound stereo speakers. At the back, however, the device has a single 20MP camera sensor, much like the One E9+. The phone features a polycarbonate body with a metal frame running around the sides.

ASUS ZenFone 2 models

5- and 6-inch ZenFone 2 handsets introduce laser autofocus and Qualcomm CPUs.

ASUS has only just got done releasing the ZenFone 2 — an Intel-powered 5.5-incher that arrives in the U.S. starting at a surprisingly affordable $199 price point. But that's not the end of ASUS' mid-level smartphone lineup for 2015. Just like last year, it seems the Taiwanese company will field ZenFones in varying sizes with mixed hardware across the board. And this week at Computex 2015 in Tapiei, we got a look at 5-inch and 6-inch variants of the ASUS ZenFone 2, with Intel chips and laser autofocus.

Where to buy the Huawei P8 lite

7

The Huawei P8 lite, as it stands at the time of its launch in mid-2015, is one of the new breed of unlocked phones available in North America. It combines decent hardware and disappointing software with a price that's tough to beat, given that you don't have to pay it over 24 months, put off a quarter's worth of dining out just to make up the difference. No, at $249 — like other phones in this space — the P8 lite is excitingly affordable.

So. Here's where you can purchase the Huawei P8 lite:

Huawei P8 lite specs

10

The Huawei P8 lite is the latest entry from the Chinese manufacturer into the unlocked North American market. It's a solidly mid-range smartphone, with a 5-inch display at 720p, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 610 processor. The one standout spec, however, isn't a good one — this phone is launching with Android 4.4.4.

Hands-on with the Huawei P8 lite: A decent unlocked option with a software problem

25
Huawei P8 lite

A brief look at a decent (and decently priced) unlocked Android smartphone that's hampered more than a bit by one nagging issue.

The "unlocked" market is starting to bloom a bit this year, and one of the newest entries is this, the Huawei P8 lite. As the name implies it's sort of a little brother to the P8 — you can read our full review of that one here — with the specs and style scaled back a bit to hit its asking price — just $249, without having to sign any sort of contract with a carrier. And what's more is that Huawei is bringing the P8 lite to a number of outlets in the U.S., as well as selling it directly.

And buying the phone really is just the start. It's all part of a pretty big move for Huawei as the Chinese company starts to make inroads in North America, and they're calling it "Unlocked 2.0." No more forking over a few hundred bucks for an imported phone and hoping things work out. (Or not caring too much if they don't, since the price was right.)

Let's take a look.

Acer Liquid X2

It might not be as head-turning as the latest Android flagships, but Acer's doing a lot right in its latest mid-level offering.

Acer isn't a brand name you'd typically associated with fast, pure Android handsets with a minimal amount of software bloat. But the Taiwanese company's latest Android phone, the Liquid X2, delivers impressive performance, a near-stock Lollipop experience and the possibility of epic longevity. We got an early look at the phone today at Computex 2015 in Taipei. Check past the break for more.
