Following the launch of Google’s Nexus 7, the rumor mill almost immediately began spilling reports about a bigger version of the Jelly Bean tablet, specifically a 10-inch model that’d be known as the Nexus 10. Although that rumor is yet to be substantiated, we’re now hearing reports of an upcoming Nexus 5 device.
Despite getting to as slow of a start as pretty much anyone else, Samsung seems to at least want to speed up the Jelly Bean updating process. The latest and greatest Android version is being rolled out to the international Galaxy S3 as we speak, but an additional 15 Sammy phones and tablets will be getting the same update at some point.
Every time a new version of the iPhone hits the market we get a slew of articles from tech writers explaining why they are switching to Apple’s latest wonderphone and leaving the fractured hell that is Android behind. Obviously this kind of article is classic clickbait and fair enough, writers want people to read their articles and it’s their job to deliver eyeballs. The fact that most of them are full of fatuous reasoning and lack any real substance is what tends to aggravate the reading public.
The Optimus Vu 2 was first mentioned in August, but at the time LG was completely mum on the second gen phablet’s spec sheet and availability details.

The Sony Xperia T is expected to land in stores in select European markets in the coming days. So it’s really about time that we finally see the unboxing video of the 007 phone. Also, special James Bond wallpapers and ringtones can now be downloaded.
Being a simple competitor seems to not be enough for Pantech anymore, who is looking to push for the leadership position in the Korean smartphone market with a new quad-core beast. The Vega R3 is the name of this new “monster”, one who has already been proclaimed as the “best existing quad-core smartphone” by its makers.
It’s not that often you come across a dual-SIM Android phone in the U.S. that has spacious display and good specs. The special edition Galaxy Note 2, which comes with dual-SIM support, is a great if somewhat expensive option, but its global release hasn’t been confirmed yet. For something less extravagant that doesn’t necessarily scream budget, there’s always the BLU Vivo 4.3.
Now that the iPhone 5 has been officially launched in several markets, we’re able to compare it with the hottest Android handsets in town. In fact we have already pitted it against the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus, the HTC One X and the LG Optimus 4X HD. In case you’re also interested in durability tests, you’ll also have to see our iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S3 drop test performed right on iPhone 5 launch day.
Samsung is launching a pink version of the Galaxy S3 in Korea next week. This is certainly a promotion to boost their female user base. Will Samsung’s addition make them more attractive to females?
So you walk into an electronic store looking for a new smartphone. Sitting on top of the nearly empty shelf is the Apple iPhone 5, while a stack of boxes with LG Optimus 4X HD inside sits just across it. What do you do? What DO you DO? Should you go with what millions are currently trying to get their hands on or get the underdog in the Android world?
