As you may have noticed already, the embargo on the new Samsung Galaxy S4 was lifted today, and reviewers from all corners of the web are weighing in on the latest Android flagship. Given that the handset succeeds one of the most successful Android phones of all time, many of you are likely to be itching to find out what it’s like.
We’ve put together a review roundup to give you a snapshot of what those early reviews are saying about the Galaxy S4, and to help you decide whether the handset will be worth your hard-earned cash when it goes on sale in the coming weeks.
If you’re a frequent internet user, I’m sure you have a large amount of personal accounts which aren’t as secure as they could be. There are many applications available on Google Play which attempt to help you manage these, but you’ll find not many of them are as useful as they claim to be. But here’s an application that’s really worth your attention — it’s called Dashlane.
If you’re a mobile Twitter user, I’m sure you are aware of the huge amount of Twitter clients there are available to download on Google Play. But here’s one that’s really worth your attention.
Developer HandlerExploit recently released an update for their Twitter client called Tweedle for Twitter. Although Tweedle was previously plagued by a bug that led to unexpected crashes, the new Tweedle fixes everything that was wrong with the app before, in addition to optimizing performance and updating the language translations.
BlackBerry — previously Research in Motion — launched the new BlackBerry Z10 last week, the first smartphone to run the company’s new BlackBerry 10 operating system. Originally set to launch in late 2012, the Z10 has been a long time coming for BlackBerry fans, and it’s a hugely important milestone for the Canadian company.
Many see this as BlackBerry’s last hope of survival in today’s cutthroat smartphone market. It’s been rapidly losing market share to Android and iOS devices over the past five years, and it hasn’t evolved quick enough to put up any sort of a fight. But it’s better later than never.
BlackBerry 10’s here now, and with the help of the Z10 — and later the Q10 — it’s going to be trying to persuade you to give up your iPhone or Android-powered smartphone in favor of a brand new platform. But is it good enough?
I’m a long-time iOS user who recently made the switch to Android, and I’ve been really curious to see if the Z10 is any good. I’ve been using the device almost exclusively since its release; here’s Cult Of Android’s review.
Developers can now respond to app reviews directly from within the Google Play app on their Android-powered devices. The feature has been available to top app developers via the Google Play website for some time, but now it’s much easier to for them to take advantage of the feature from their smartphones and tablets.
A few Cruzerlite Androidified Clone Army TPU cases for the Nexus 7 crossed my desk recently and so I figured why not take a quick look at them and give a couple away. It’s no secret that we’re fans of Cruzerlite products. We love their designs, their quality, and best of all — their price.
Last month iLuv ran a Back-to-School special on their new lineup of Samsung Galaxy S III cases. Being the curious bloke that I am, I just had to check them out. iLuv was kind enough to provide me with a variety of cases to review and review them I did. I’ll give you a look at some of the pros and cons of each case and then you can decide if any are right for you.
While I’m still not a fan of tablets, and prefer a laptop anyday, there is one accessory that actually gets me to use my tablet, and that is a Bluetooth keyboard. For the most part, a Bluetooth keyboard is a Bluetooth keyboard, and since there are many new Nexus 7 owners out there looking for one, I figured why not take the Logitech Tablet Keyboard For Android 3.0+ for a test spin until an official Nexus 7 keyboard hits the market.
How many of you have heard of NFC? NFC is the latest short-range radio communications standard taking the mobile world by storm. In fact, if you have a new Android phone, there’s a good chance it has an NFC chip inside. NFC stands for Near Field Communication, and it’s a standard that allows devices to establish radio communication with each other when brought within close proximity of one another.
