Samsung Galaxy S6 vs. HTC One M9: Camera shootout!

130
Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9

Smartphones are increasingly rated on their camera prowess, and these two flagships bring the best quality they can.

Both Samsung and HTC have tried a variety of camera strategies over the years, and in 2015 have settled on something that is likely the best complete package each has produced in some time. The Galaxy S6 has cut back on unnecessary software features and simply puts together high-end components with some great image processing. The One M9 finally gave up on UltraPixels and Duo Cameras on the back of the phone to go for a more "standard" 20MP sensor, and kept the same solid camera interface.

Both the One M9 and Galaxy S6 are clearly able to take great photos, but in a world where both of these flagships are fighting to take up space in your hand, we want to put them head-to-head and see which one comes out ahead.

Cruising with the iOttie Active Edge Bike and Bar Mount

14

Bike mounts for your phone are useful, as long they're sturdy and don't block necessary ports and buttons.

Admittedly, it's been a few weeks since I'd taken my Trek Madone out for a lengthy spin. So, once we received the iOttie Active Edge Bike and Bar Mount in the store, that gave me a reason to test the waters on an accessory that I'd never used before. Now I'm wondering how I ever rode without one.

Sony's Xperia Z4 is the flagship nobody asked for

199
Xperia Z4

Sony's latest high-end phone, announced for the Japanese market, is a bizarre non-upgrade that does no favors for the company or its customers.

Let's talk about the Sony Xperia Z4. The Japanese electronics giant announced the latest in its line of premium Z-series smartphones recently for its home market. And it's fair to say the popular reaction to the device has fallen somewhere between bewilderment and outright derision. Consumers and critics alike seem confused as to why this phone exists, questioning the priorities Sony's taken with what appears to be its early-2015 flagship.

With questionable hardware priorities and no word of any global launch, it's a bizarre turn for Sony, coming as the company looks to restructure and streamline its smartphone offerings and focus primarily on the high end of the market. The Xperia Z4 can boast only a couple of meaningful improvements over its six-month-old predecessor, and in one or two important areas it may actually be a regression from the Z3.

Black Widow has arrived on the S6 Theme Store

30

The original cast of Marvel Cinematic Universe Avengers have officially been assembled, if only in Galaxy S6 theme form.

It seemed a little odd when thumbing through Samsung's shiny new Theme Store for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge to find a single Avenger missing from the special Marvel section at the top of the app, but it appears she was just running a little behind. The Black Widow theme has been added to the list, and if Samsung's official announcement is any indicator this completes the list of Avengers that will appear in the store before Age of Ultron hits theaters.
