Don't sleep on the HTC 10 – this phone looks phenomenal (hands-on)

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the whole Samsung vs. Apple thing and forget about HTC. But this year you'll do so at your own peril, because the company's 2016 flagship looks like an absolute beast.

This is a serious contender for best smartphone of the year.Read More

Super-thin iPhone case hides extra juice

While there are many battery back-up iPhone cases out there, they all tend to add significant weight and thickness to your otherwise sleek smartphone.

We can't decide if the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are incredibly easy or incredibly hard to review. They get so many things right that it's easy to sing their praises, but because they're so good and polished, lacking the kinds of gimmicks that used to define Samsung phones, they almost make for a boring review (after all, problems and conflict are the root of all storytelling). We'll do our best to keep things interesting, despite the lack of drama in these two near-perfect flagships.Read More

iPhone SE vs. Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung's is a modern-sized flagship with modern flagship pricing, while Apple's is a budget-priced horsepower upgrade to a teeny-tiny phone from years ago. In other words, the two aren't obvious rivals at all. Nonetheless, being the two biggest names in mobile, someone is sure to wonder – so let's see how they stack up.Read More
