The iPhone 5c Will Disappear In Mid-2015 -- Will It Be Replaced?

We really liked the iPhone 5c, with its bright colours and funky fresh styling. But it won’t be around on Apple Store shelves forever. The iPhone 5c is going away in the middle of 2015, but Apple may well choose to exit that low end of the smartphone race to focus on the iPhone 6 and future premium models.


Google Searches Now Come With Interactive Gadget Porn

We spend a lot of time on our tablets and smartphones. You probably also spend a lot of time thinking about buying new ones. You know it. I know it. And of course, Google knows it. That’s why they’re augmenting your gadget searches with 3D renders of the stuff you’re lusting over.


Next-Gen Gorilla Glass Wants To Save Your Phone From Fateful Drops 

Few of us ever really bat an eye if we get a scratch or two on our smartphone’s screen. The real heartbreaker is when the phone is accidentally dropped or knocked off a table and the screen shatters, leaving it completely unusable. It’s a fate many of us have experienced before, and one that Corning now claims we’ll experience less often with the company’s new stronger Gorilla Glass 4.


Milk Video: Samsung's Beautiful New Video Hub For Its Huge Phones

If you own a recent Samsung phone you’re about to get Milk Video, a new app that pulls in some of the best content from around the web into a beautiful, streamlined interface. It’s hardly the only video app out there, but it sure is pretty.


Which Smartphone And Tablet Displays Show The Most Accurate Colours?

If you walk into any major TV retailer, all of the TVs are showing identical videos, but their colours will be noticeably (to obnoxiously) different on every TV on the wall. Why is that?


This Ultra-Compact Support Lets You Shoot Hands-Free With Your iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 make it impossibly easy to shoot timelapse and high-speed footage using just your phone. But while the boxy design of the iPhone 5 meant it could be stood on its edge for hands-free shooting, you unfortunately can’t steady the curvy iPhone 6 that way. Lots of companies have announced tiny tripods and folding cases to help solve that problem, but none seem as elegantly simple and straight-forward as the MOS Kick.


After Three Weeks, Apple Pay Is Already Transforming How The US Buys Stuff

For years, tech companies like Google and Softcard (formerly known as ISIS) begged with consumers to adopt its NFC-powered payment platform, and for the most part, their pleas went largely unheard. Now that Apple Pay has graced millions of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users with NFC purchasing powers (across the US, at least), things are beginning to change. And really, everyone is a winner.


If You Don't Want A Smashed Phone, Don't Text And Walk

Unfortunately for me and anyone within my general vicinity, I’m so clumsy that I should be considered handicapped. I regularly stub my toes, walk into walls, spill full cups of tea, trip over my own feet and just generally wreak havoc anywhere I seem to go.

With this in mind, I am the last person on earth who should text and walk. But I do. All the time.


Nexus 6 Review: It's Time To Go Big

The Nexus 6 is f**king huge. It’s also the best big phone I’ve ever used. Hell, it’s one of the best phones I’ve ever touched. I never want to give it up. It’s that good.


Huawei Ascend Mate7: Australian Hands-On

China does smartphones well; we know that much is the case from our quick peeks into the world of Xiaomi and Oppo. There’s another big player that has been around in Australia for longer, though, and it has a brand new flagship phablet. Huawei’s Mate7 packs in a giant 6-inch display, but it does that in a body smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s just as powerful and as up-to-date as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, too.
