Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S appears to have a pretty serious overheating issue. It doesn’t just get warm and uncomfortable to hold; it gets so hot that its cheap back panel actually starts to warp. A number of owners are reporting the problem online, but according to Samsung, it’s only “negligible” and shouldn’t prevent them from using the device.


Right in the centre of the smartphone revolution is Qualcomm, whose processors and modems are found inside every major smartphone nowadays. The company has played a major role in making LTE a common feature in today’s smartphones and has constantly pushed the bar forward in mobile performance and battery life.

Qualcomm usually releases two major SoCs in a year, around which most OEMs plan their device launches. This year, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 801 at MWC, a seemingly minor upgrade over its predecessor — the Snapdragon 800. The successor of 801 though, dubbed Snapdragon 805, is slated to be released later this year and promises to push the bar in terms of performance in mobile devices even higher.


Tomorrow, LG will be unveiling its latest flagship handset — the G3 — and the successor of one of the most under rated phones of 2013, the LG G2.  Thanks to a torrential amount of leaks, rumors and some teaser videos straight from LG, we already know quite a bit about the G3.

LG is once again going all out against the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and the Xperia Z2 by filling the G3 to the brim with features and innovations, including a never seen before laser sensor on the back .

So, what do we already know about the G3? Below is a quick rumor round-up of the device aggregating everything we know about it before its official unveiling tomorrow.


Prepare for a major upgrade in processing and graphics performance from next year’s Android-powered flagships. Qualcomm today announced its next-generation Snapdragon processors with 64-bit architecture, which promise a better mobile computing experience in almost every way.

In addition to support for 4K Ultra HD displays, the Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810 processors are expected to bring even faster LTE connectivity, better graphics for your games, and blazing-fast devices you haven’t experienced on Android before.


HTC really needs to step up its security over unreleased devices, because it has to be the worst when it comes to product leaks.

We’re just under a month away from the unveiling of its “All New HTC One,” and yet again the handset has been pictured out in the wild. These aren’t the sharpest of snaps, but they do give us a nice look at the handset’s new rear-facing camera sensors (yes, there are two).
