HTC is reportedly gearing up to take on the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 with a flagship phablet of its own called the HTC One M8 Max. The device will reportedly offer a 5.5-inch display — the same as the 6 Plus — with a super sharp Quad HD resolution.

Here’s one way to put your iPhone 5s to good use after upgrading to the iPhone 6: Install the Android L Developer Preview. It sounds like an impossibility given Apple’s incredibly tight control over device security, but a small group of university researchers have managed it using a clever workaround. You’ll find proof in the short demonstration video below.

T-Mobile has begun taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ahead of its U.S. launch on October 17. You can either pay full price for the unlocked device, or you can spread the cost over 24 months and pay nothing upfront.

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus carry the best smartphone cameras you can buy right now, according to the camera and lens experts at DxOMark. Both devices achieve an impressive rating of 82 out of 100, beating the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Sony Xperia Z3, and even the 41-megapixel sensor in the Nokia 808 PureView.

If you love the look of Apple’s latest iPhones but you can’t stand the thought of ditching Android for iOS, then perhaps this shameless Chinese knockoff will get your mouth watering. It’s called the Sophone i6 and looks just like the real thing, but it runs Jelly Bean instead of iOS and it’s available at a fraction of the price.

Its specifications aren’t exactly awful, either.
