As is customary with every new flagship smartphone that Samsung releases, Galaxy S6 (reviewed here) and S6 Edge owners can look forward to getting their hands on some premium apps, services and content free-of-charge courtesy of its Galaxy Gifts app. We have the full list after the break.
Choosing the perfect weather app to suit your specific needs is a subjective topic, some of us want or need up-to-the-minute updates while some are satisfied with a basic overview of the day’s forecast.

From the initial announcement, Samsung has been receiving a lot of good buzz about the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge smartphone, the companion to their Galaxy S6. The company may have thought the curved edges of the device would be seen more as a novelty for buyers who wanted to be early adopters or who were looking for a little “edge” over their friends’ devices. However, the device has proven to be extremely popular with the general buying public, putting Samsung in the situation of scrambling to meet demand. To do so, the Korean manufacturer has opened a third production line to handle demand for the curved screens on the device. Read more
Recent we heard how HTC came up with the “M” naming scheme and why the latest HTC One is the “M9“. Now it’s time to learn about the Samsung Galaxy S. Actually this is nothing new as it was actually reported in a 2011 press release that Phone Arena dug up, but I guess we all forgot about it or we didn’t pay attention to it at the time.
Today, the scaled-down variant of Huawei’s flagship smartphone of 2015, the P8, popped up for pre-order in Germany. The P8 Lite is available in either black or silver, and carries a price tag of €249 ($270).
A few days ago, my HTC One (M8) purchased through Verizon started experiencing difficulties opening an app or two. Select apps crash immediately after launching and other force close when hitting the back button. I had initially thought it was an issue for those apps and didn’t think much of it. Then, as we progressed into this weekend, it became more prevalent.
HTC has released a new video that takes aim at Samsung, Apple, and really all other smartphone manufacturers through a spoof of pharmaceutical ads. The ad is for a fictional drug called Cellami which is supposed to help someone suffering from Bi-phonal Displeasure Disorder. Read more
It is no secret that OPPO has been working on a bezel-less design for a smartphone. This first showed up in some leaked images for what was believed to be the OPPO R7 and then again for a device that may be the OPPO R5 successor. However, other leaked renders of the R7 did not show the bezel-less design. According to this latest set of images and video, OPPO’s work is more a proof of concept and it is unclear whether the technology will make it into one of their existing lines of devices or will be part of a whole new line.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 4 has received technical acceptance for its Lollipop update, according to T-Mobile’s senior product manager on Twitter. Don’t bother checking your phone for the update just yet, since technical acceptance doesn’t mean an immediate rollout. It does mean, however, that you should be seeing an OTA update on your Note 4 sometime next week.
I know, the wait is going to be tough. You’ve made it this long, what’s another few days? Read more
The specifications of the HTC One M9 come across as underwhelming for some consumers. While the aluminum design is beautiful, the display and camera just miss the mark compared to its competition. The upcoming Butterfly 3 could be worth a look many consumers (in the event it leaves Asia). On CompuBench, specifications for an HTC device that is allegedly the Butterfly 3 surfaced. It shows a 5.1-inch display with 2560×1440 resolution and a Snapdragon 810 processor. The rear camera is 19MP and the front camera is 12MP. Certainly not underwhelming, right?
