Weekly poll: Do you really want a 4K screen on your next phone?

280

So yeah. Sony's new Xperia Z5 Premium has a for-real 4K display. That'd be UHD, 3840 X 2160 pixels, checking in somewhere around 806 ppi.

Holy crap.

HTC Desire 626 review

16
Angled view

It's the affordable option, not the powerful one.

Quick take

The HTC Desire 626 is built to be an affordable and worthwhile purchase. While it isn't the frontrunner of the class, it still packs a punch. The battery life, design, and easy expansion of storage space are fantastic even when the trade off is a lower resolution screen and a single speaker.

The Good

  • Awesome battery
  • Great size and design
  • SD slot for expanded storage

The Bad

  • Single speaker
  • low resolution
  • below average load times

Desire 626 Full Review

The affordable Desire line from HTC have been staples of European and Asian markets for years, and now that the US it getting in on the action there's even more reason to pay attention to these phones. In a market that already has some strong contenders HTC definitely needs to make an impression. The Desire 626, with its $230 unlocked price tag, is certainly versatile enough to catch the eye of a fickle consumer base, but maybe lacks the power needed to seal the deal for everyone.

HTC didn't go for any one feature that is amazing, instead opting to build a solid device from top to bottom. The software and design are fantastic, even when the phone does fall short in other arenas. It's also got the addition of HTC's Blinkfeed and Sense 7 software to really give you an edge on easily customizing your experience. As the trend of affordable devices continues, it's interesting to see what that means to different companies.

Here is our review.

About this review

We're publishing this review after using a 16gb white Desire 626 for two weeks This unit is running Android 5.1 with Sense 7 (Build 1.10.502.1). It's running exclusively on the AT&T Network in Baltimore, MD which has great coverage.

Halloween

oh so pretty

Desire 626 Design

The Desire 626 has a plastic unibody casing that has a great feel to it. There isn't any way to open it up, or access the battery with minimal ridges even where the main and contrast colors meet up. You do get a slot on the side which allows you sim card access, and gives you an SD slot if the onboard 16GB of storage doesn't cut it for you.

Though it is a plastic unibody, the case is solid, without any bend or flex to it. It's a good size too, fitting easily enough into my hand that I can use my phone one handed. The Desire 626 doesn't have any kind of shiny finish on the case, which means it doesn't feel slippery, or like I might lose hold of it at an inopportune moment.

I've got the 626 in white with a grey stripe of contrast, but it is available in a bunch of colors. They all follow the common theme of a main color, with a contrast stripe. The main color of the phone covers the back, and front, with the contrast running around the sides. It also has soft rounded corners which gave me more confidence that I wasn't about to drop it.

For whatever reason I just couldn't get it through my head that the power button was on the bottom, with the volume rocker above it.

There are only two actual buttons on the Desire 626, and they're both seated on the right of the phone. The volume rocker is at the top, with the power button seated underneath it. They're both of a decent size, and protrude from the side just enough that you can feel them without having to go looking. I did keep having an issue of hitting the volume bar when I meant the power button, and vice versa. For whatever reason I just couldn't get it through my head that the power button was on the bottom, with the volume rocker above it

The casing extends to the front of the phone, before meeting up with the screen. Above and below the screen are speaker grills — although there is only a single speaker. The HTC branding is evident under the screen, and in the middle of the back of the smartphone. The front facing camera is on the upper right, and just barely recessed from the casing. The rear facing camera is of course on the back, with the flash. We'll get to that in a minute.

I definitely enjoy the look and feel of the HTC Desire 626. It's got a sturdy, solid feel in my hands and doesn't feel slippery in my grasp either. The colors are well chosen, and everything is right where it needs to be. There isn't anything groundbreaking here, but the design looks and feels great.

HTC Desire 626

Don't expect miracles

Desire 626 Hardware

HTC didn't pack anything amazing into the Desire 626, which isn't a big surprise. The phone still works well with minimal stutter, and a slightly longer loading screen than I'm used to. When running multiple apps, or downloading a large file the casing got a little warm but it never got uncomfortably hot in my hand.

Category Features Display 5-inch HD (1280x720) OS Android 5.1 with HTC Sense Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad core @ 1.1 GHz Storage 16GB with microSD card RAM 1.5GB Size 146.9 x 70.9 x 8.19 mm Rear camera 8MP with backside illumination, autofocus, 720p video Front camera 5MP with BSI, 720p video Battery 2,000 mAh Location GPS/AGPS, GLONASS Sensors Ambient light, proximity, accelerometer Connectivity Bluetooth 4.1, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz)

The plastic casing for the Desire 626 does tend to get a little warm with extended use, running with a Snapdragon 210 processor. It never got super hot, but it definitely got warm enough that it became noticeable. Generally this was when I had been playing a game for a while, or watching videos, and it cooled back down again quickly.

Battery life is absolutely fantastic.

The processor can leave just a bit to be desired. If you're running multiple apps, it tends to slow a bit. You can definitely expect to wait an extra few seconds for apps to open, but it still gets the job done. There are occasionally a few stutters, but each time the phone recovered quickly and went back to being nice and smooth.

The battery life on the Desire 626 was absolutely fantastic. I could plug it in to charge overnight and not have to plug it back in all day, starting my day around 11am and ending around 2am. Since I'm constantly on my phone throughout the day, this was fantastic to see. On the off chance I did need to charge, due to an extended gaming session or something, I'm immediately tethered to the wall for a couple of hours if I want a full charge. The lack of Quick Charge is understandable, but frustrating all the same.

The features that have become staples in the One line are still missing here, especially double tap on the screen to open your phone. It can take some adjusting to get used to if you're moving from a phone with these abilities, but it's understandable to keep the phone affordable.

The screen is a decent 5-inch display, but the quality isn't great. I'm a big fan of pictures, and everything you view on the Desire tends to render a bit weird. It ends up looking like someone took a sharpening tool to the pictures. This probably a move from HTC to compensate for the lower resolution of the display. It works well for text, but if you're used to photos on a higher quality display, you'll occasionally notice things aren't quire right.

Adequate but not amazing

Desire 626 Audio

Sadly the HTC Desire 626 is equipped with only a single speaker — that double audio grill on the front is just for looks. The speaker isn't particularly amazing, but it isn't terrible either. Its pretty strong for a single speaker, but clearly not BoomSound.

With headphones on audio quality is mid-range. There is no way to manually fiddle with options to adjust the levels or anything baked in without a third-party app. You'll get decent mids and tolerable highs, but bass is flat and software isn't likely to fix that.

Using the Camera

getting the job done

Desire 626 Camera

The camera on the Desire 626 is fun to use, provided you are in a well lit environment without any sudden movement. Like many smartphones in this class it takes great pictures given decent lighting to work with. However both cameras tend towards graininess when you are dealing with low lighting, and without OIS movement is almost always a problem.

The HTC camera app gives you plenty of options. You can grid out the screen to make it easier to get the exact shot you were looking for, and the face sensor is pretty good as well. At the bottom of the camera screen is where you can set a timer, switch between photo or video, see your gallery, and access options like switching between your front and back camera.

After taking photos there are some built in editing options. This means applying flair, themes, rotating crooked shots, and removing red eye from your phone. There are some filters as well, mostly in different colors. IT's a lot of simple stuff, but nice to have at your fingertips after taking a shot.

While the camera for the Desire 626 works well in ideal conditions, it just doesn't perform great otherwise. The graininess of photos was the biggest problem. The onboard editing can help this to a degree. It's also not that the pictures are terrible, they just aren't quite up to par with what I am used to.

Software

An old favorite with new tricks

Desire 626 Software

You can expect to see the Desire 626 running Android 5.1 as soon as it comes out of the box. For the most part everything is where it should be, but there are a few tweaks to be aware of.

The Home widget remains as a suggestion platform to get you the apps you need, for where you are. It's actually a 3 sets of apps; one for home, one for work, and another for away. You can adjust which apps show up when, and it will automatically detect which screen should be showing based off of GPS. One of the bubbles that can't be customized on this widget are the suggestions; filled with apps that HTC thinks you might like depending on your usage.

Desire 626 screenshots

BlinkFeed might be a little bit of a shock if you aren't already used to using it on HTC devices. It's an aggregated newsfeed, which pulls from the social media accounts you connect to it. I'm not a huge fan of BlinkFeed because I like getting lost in my newsfeed, but it is a great way to get all of your news and info in a single place. It's also a great way to catch up when you've only got a moment to spare and several social media accounts to check in on.

quick settings

Customization is where you can get excited about the Desire 626. It comes equipped with HTC Sense, which means you get access to themes. Instead of giving you a few themes built into the phone, Sense gives you access to hundreds of user made themes in dozens of categories. There really is something for everyone, and it's easy to adjust how each theme will show up on your phone.

There is some bloatware to be found on the Desire 626, which really shouldn't come as a surprise. Since it's an AT&T phone you can expect their take on navigation, transferring info, and more all preinstalled for you. There are a few apps, but they honestly aren't so bad and can be easily dealt with.

The software is certainly solid. There isn't an egregious amount of bloatware, and the inclusion of Sense and BlinkFeed give you some real customization options to pursue.

Desire 626 optical illusion

Hardy and pretty

Desire 626 In the end

HTC has done a good job of making the Desire 626 a contender with it's options, instead of with its specs. There isn't anything about the phone that is done in an over the top manner, instead giving you a good starter phone that is solid across the board.

While it is somewhat underpowered compared to other phones in the affordable smartphone market, the addition of HTC's Sense and BlinkFeed do make a pretty impressive difference. Sense in particular gives you far more customization options than you might see otherwise, at least so easily anyway.

With a lower price point than many of it's opponents, HTC seems to be banking on you saving a few dollars rather than enticing you with features meant to catch the eye. The resolution on the screen can be a bit jarring, but it's easy enough to adjust for. You are after all, getting what you paid for. With the HTC Desire 626 you're paying for a solid device to get the job done, not anything super shiny.

bottom screen

Should you buy the Desire 626? Maybe.

The Desire 626 is a decent phone, but nothing about it is amazing. Compared to some other phones in the same price range like the Moto G, the Desire 626 comes in a bit underwhelming. If you're a already a fan of HTC's Sense software, and you're looking for a phone in the $200-$300 range then this is a decent choice. Otherwise, it's worth shopping around to find the best bang for your buck. best bang for your buck.

Google Docs picks up new research tool, voice typing on the web

4

Google is rolling out some fancy new features to Docs aimed at bringing some much needed productivity features to the app. Some of the updates include a dictation tool in Docs on the web, robust change tracking, and the ability to search Google within Docs for Android.

Perhaps the most notable addition is the new Research tool in Docs for Android. The tool allows you to perform Google searches within the app, making it easier to find quotes or images without having to switch between apps. Further, Google says you can add info from the web with just a couple of taps.

Next up is what Google is calling Voice Typing, which is simply a dictation feature. Available in Chrome on desktop, Voice Typing does exactly what you'd expect, freeing your hands from the confines of the keyboard as you dictate your latest research paper. Even better, Google says the feature is available in 40 languages from the outset.

Finally, Google has added new change tracking and form features to Docs. Now, when you open a document you're collaborating on, you can click the "See new changes" button to see all of the edits made since you last opened the document. With the new Forms feature, you can easily create polls and forms with fresh themes, and you can even add GIFs, videos, and images to spice things up.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium: Up close and personal with the world's first 4K phone

96
Xperia Z5 Premium

Of course Sony's 4K phone looks great — but beyond the technological milestone it represents, there remains a lot to learn about the Z5 Premium.

It had to happen eventually. Even as "Ultra HD" TVs remain out of reach to most buyers, the blistering pace of mobile hardware advancement has launched us into the era of 4K smartphones. Announced alongside the vanilla Z5 and Z5 Compact at IFA today, the Xperia Z5 Premium brings Sony's high-end smartphone experience to a 5.5-inch screen size, while cranking up the display density all the way to an insane 806 pixels per inch. We've seen it with our own eyes, and can offer some first impressions after the break.

Lenovo announces new Vibe S1, P1 and P1m phones at IFA 2015

12

Lenovo has just announced three new phones, the Vibe S1, Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m, at IFA 2015. All three phones come in under $300 unlocked and seem to offer solid value for the money in their own ways.

Starting with the higher-end model of the three, the Vibe S1 is a selfie-focused 5-inch device clad in metal and glass. The Vibe S1's main feature is its two front-facing cameras — an 8MP for the highest-quality selfies, and a 2MP for depth information to replicate human binocular vision. The two cameras work together for new features like refocusing, background blur, cut-outs and other tools. The rest of the phone rounds out to a 5-inch 1080p display, octa-core 1.7GHz Mediatek CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera, 2500 mAh battery and LTE connectivity inside.

The Vibe P1 and P1m slot in underneath the S1 just slightly, and they're all about simple features and battery life. The Vibe P1 is an all-metal affair, with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera and an absolutely huge 5000 mAh battery. That battery enables reverse charging of other devices over USB, and sports quick charging capabilities.

The P1m is similarly positioned to the P1, but corners have been cut for price. The plastic device bumps down to a Mediatek processor and 16GB of storage, as well as a 5-inch 720p display and 8MP camera. The battery cuts down to meet the size at 4000 mAh, but keeps the same reverse charging and quick charging abilities. Both phones are running Android 5.1 Lollipop as well, and have dual SIM slots.

Lenovo has the Vibe S1 slated for a November release for $299 unlocked, which seems like a solid deal for the phone. The Vibe P1 will be available in early October for $279, with the P1m lining up in mid-September for just $159 unlocked. None of the phones are set to arrive in North America, but will be made available in other countries where Lenovo phones are currently sold.

Lenovo announces tablet-sized Phab and Phab Plus phones at IFA 2015

40

Lenovo has hardly denied the popularity of big phones, and is going all-in today with the announcement of the Phab and Phab Plus. The Phab Plus is the leading model, with an absolutely massive 6.8-inch 1920x1080 display wrapped by a unibody metal design. There's a Snapdragon 615 processor inside along with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (as well as an SD card slot), a 13MP camera around the back and a 3500 mAh battery.

Contrary to the naming, the standard entry-model Phab is actually a touch larger at 6.98-inches, but with lower-end specs to slot it underneath the Phab Plus in price and appeal. The Phab will also have a Snapdragon processor (model unspecified), but just 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (SD card expandable) — the screen is also just 1280x720 resolution. There's a notable battery bump to 4250 mAh, and it also supports dual SIMs.

Both phones are running Android 5.0 Lollipop with minimal customization in terms of interface, but include the necessary software features for shrinking the screen to improve one-handed use when necessary. The Phab Plus will launch in a variety of markets this month — including Southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe — for the equivalent of $299 unlocked. The entry-level Phab model comes in at just $179 unlocked.

Hands-on with the Moto 360 (2015)

67

One of the most popular first-gen Android Wear watches has finally gotten the refresh it so desperately needed.

Plans for a refresh to the Moto 360 have leaked from every possible direction over the last couple of weeks, but today Motorola has made its new Android Wear lineup official. Instead of one watch, we now have four — a 46mm and 42mm Mens duo, a 42mm Womens Edition, and the Moto 360 Sport.

Motorola isn't quite ready to show off working versions of the Moto 360 sport, but we've got plenty to talk about now that we've had the other three on our wrists for a bit.

If you were hoping for a radically different design from Motorola this year, you're barking up the wrong tree. As we saw in the leaks, Motorola has kept the imperfect circle design from the original Moto 360 and added lugs on the top and bottom instead of hiding the strap connectors inside the casing itself. This change makes it significantly easier to swap out the strap with whatever you want, but also makes more room in the casing for things like a beefier battery. The single button on the side of the watch has moved to the 2 o'clock position, making it significantly easier to reach for and use. Curiously, this button now has the Motorola M emblazoned across it.

These physical adjustments do little to change the feel of the Moto 360 on the wrist, compared to the original. None of the external changes here are particularly mind-blowing, and if you ask Motorola they will tell you that is the point. Despite the "flat tire" look, the Moto 360 offers a noticeably better screen to bezel ratio when compared to most other smartwatches. Perhaps more important, this "display ledge" as Motorola calls it allows for a light sensor so the 360 can continue to offer auto brightness, something no other round Android Wear watch is offering at the moment.

Of course, this is just the 46mm version of the Moto 360. If your wrists are in need of something a little smaller, and we know you are out there, two 42mm versions of this watch exist. This decrease in overall size means a 100 mAh drop in battery capacity, but you also get a slight increase in pixel density. The 42mm Mens variant looks and feels like a slightly smaller Moto 360, but the Womens Edition restricts strap size to 16mm and the lugs on this version are slightly smaller to better suit those who need less space consumed on their wrist. Motorola promises these smaller versions won't do much to the overall battery and performance, but a more thorough evaluation will be required to make that judgement for sure.

It couldn't be more clear Motorola's focus for this new launch is refinement and personalization.

With a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 and 512MB of RAM, the Moto 360 performs noticeably better than its predecessor. Load times are noticeably decreased and animations are significantly smoother. It's a great overall experience, but not a new one. Motorola has joined a long list of Android Wear watches with the same internal hardware, and with that comes a certain inescapable similarity in performance. This is far from a bad thing, especially with Google keeping a tight grip on the underlying OS.

Each of these watches is using a backlit LCD display, with always-on mode enabled by default. Motorola warns this mode comes at a considerable loss in overall battery life, and makes it clear you can get upwards of two days on a single charge with this mode disabled. As you'd expect, this mode flips the watch into the black and white ambient display mode so your watch is a watch all the time instead of just when you move your wrist. In our brief testing this worked the same as it does everywhere else, though it's clear in darker rooms the whole screen is being lit to display this information, rather than just the active bits like you'd see with AMOLED.

Motorola's big contribution to software in this release comes in the form of significantly more complex watchfaces. Dubbed Live Dials, these faces take advantage of the new interactive capabilities baked into Android Wear 1.3 and offer some unique software partnerships. Like many interactive faces, you can set up quick glances for fitness tracking, email, and calendar access, but Motorola has also included shortcut access to apps that are already installed on your watch. Current partners include IFTTT, Shazam, Spotify, Kevo, and several others. These icons show up in the Live Dial, and tapping on them immediately launches the core feature in the app. Motorola plans to make it easy for any app to integrate with Live Dials in the near future, but as an initial offering it's impressive.

It wouldn't be a Motorola product if Moto Maker wasn't somehow involved, and with this new line of Moto 360 watches the company has truly gone all out. There are 300 different options available in Moto Maker for these watches, and the degree with which you can customize is far beyond anything we've seen on a smartwatch so far. The Mens versions have access to black, silver, and gold casing, but you can also customize the bezel itself. You can opt for alternate colors on the bezel if you want a two-toned look, or you can choose bezel treatments and go with an entirely different look to the face of the watch. The Womens Edition offers much of the same, but instead of black there's a rose gold option and some bezel treatments that are only available on this edition for now.

Watch bands are a big part of the customization, and Motorola has expended their offerings from last year to include blush leather for the ladies and a redesign of the Tylt band that quickly became popular with the previous Moto 360. Nearly every strap Motorola showed off in our demo included a quick release pin, so there was no need for any tools to swap a band out.

It couldn't be more clear Motorola's focus for this new launch is refinement and personalization. Fans of the Moto 360 design have a lot of great reasons to consider upgrading, and everyone else can take a look at the $299 starting price and seriously consider what matters to them most in a smartwatch. Either way you look at it, the new Moto 360 is a worthy successor and a welcomed addition to the 2015 Android Wear lineup.

Moto 360 (2015) Specs

10

Motorola has finally pulled the curtains off their updated Moto 360, and with that comes a lot of questions about what makes this an update over the previous version. There's a lot more to this new Moto 360 than a visual update, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Here's a quick look at the specs for each of the three new standard Moto 360 watches.

/*-->*/

Category Features Size 46mm x 11.4mm and 42mm x 11.4mm Color Black, Gold, Silver, Rose Gold (Women Edition only) Display 1.56-inch 360 x 330 (233ppi) and 1.37-inch 360 x 325 (263ppi) LCD with Gorilla Glass 3 CPU 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 RAM 512MB Storage 4GB Battery 400mAh and 300mAh Sensors Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Heartrate, Bluetooth 4.0 Strap Stainless steel, leather, rose gold (Women's Edition only)

A big part of what makes this new Moto 360 special is the hundreds of options available for personalization over at Moto Maker, which includes tons of new straps and design combinations. Design aside, your Moto 360 has more than enough power to compete with the watches available today.

Motorola announces the Moto 360 (2015) family

27

Arguably the most talked about Android Wear watch of the first generation, the Moto 360 has been more in need of a refresh than most. Despite not being a totally circular watch, the original Moto 360 turned heads with it's nearly bezel-less design and clean, simple design. We've seen plenty of teases and leaks for the next version of the Moto 360, and today that product line becomes reality.

Motorola has announced not one, but four new Moto 360 watches today. The 46mm Moto 360, 42mm Mens Moto 360, 42mm Womens Moto 360, and a rubberized Moto 360 Sport have joined the wearable lineup today, most of which are now available for pre-order.

The 2015 Moto 360 lineup is an upgrade in every way over the original. A refreshed case design adds lugs to the outside instead of the internal strap connector, making it significantly easier to swap straps when you're in the mood for something else. Motorola's "display shelf" design on the screen remains, and like its predecessor the Moto 360 has opted for features like auto-brightness over a perfectly circular display. The single button on the outside of the watch has also moved, and is now easier to reach without covering the watch with your hand.

Under the Gorilla Glass 3 display cover, Motorola has shifted from their own processor to the 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor with 512MB of RAM and 4gb of internal storage, making it functionally similar to most of the other Android Wear watches currently available. With a 400 mAh battery on the 46mm version and 300 mAh in the two smaller non-sport variants, Motorola is promising a full day of mixed use with its always-on LCD display and double that if you turn off ambient mode.

The Moto 360 Sport is another matter entirely, one that Motorola isn't quite ready to show off yet. This version of the Moto 360 doesn't include a mechanism for replaceable straps, opting instead for a silicone strap that wraps around the entire casing and an ip67 rating for water and dust. Motorola will be baking GPS into this model, as well as making it possible to listen to more music straight from the watch so you can use it without your phone. Key to this design is a hybrid reflective display Motorola is calling AnyLight, which will function noticeably better in direct sunlight.

A big part of this new Moto 360 lineup is Moto Maker, where you can customize the parts that make up the outside of your watch. Casing, bezel design, strap size and purpose, and included watchfaces are all a part of this customization, including unique options for the smaller Womens Edition Moto 360. While the watch will be available to purchase off the shelf if you prefer, the options in Moto Maker are compelling enough to warrant a closer look.

Motorola is making the three non-sport versions of the Moto 360 available for pre-order today on the Google Store and Motorola.com, with prices ranging from $299 to $429, with in-store availability at Best Buy, Verizon Wireless, and Nordstrom starting later this month. Moto 360 Sport details are expected to be available later this year.
