Microsoft has really picked up its Surface game in the last year. First the Surface Pro 3 took a big step forward, and now the Surface 3 brings many of the same principles to a smaller and cheaper device. Read on for Gizmag's Surface 3 early impressions.
The smartphone world is one of never-ending oneupmanship. About a month after the launch of two of the best phones we've seen, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, LG is trying to knock the new kings of the mountain off their perch. But can the LG G4 keep up? Let's compare the G4 to the Galaxy S6 and GS6 edge.
The LG G3
wasn't a perfect phone, but it still cracked our list of the top handsets of 2014
. Can the company's 2015 flagship, the LG G4
, do better? We can start by comparing the two phones' features and specs.
Google's Project Ara might be a way off
getting a full consumer launch, but a new crowdfunding project hopes to scratch that modular itch in the meantime. Nexpaq is designed for selected iOS and Android handsets, providing users with a choice of add-ons that can be clipped into the back of the case, with options that increase battery life, add an SD card slot and much more.

Wireless charging is a convenient technology, allowing users to charge their smart devices without worrying about cables. But it's still young, and has some problems – specifically the fact that users need to line up the device with the charger correctly to get it to work.

That's why the team at Rubix is developing its On wireless charger and case, which promises to make wireless charging easier thanks to magnets.
LG's flagship smartphones don't have the marketing clout of rivals from Apple and Samsung (and apparently LG also lags behind in secrecy, as the new LG G4 was leaked from here to Timbuktu before today's announcement). But the G4 will be worth keeping an eye on, with some key improvements to its display and rear camera over last year's G3
. Oh, and there's also that cowhide you'll find on its backside.
Having already bestowed some flattery upon the iPad mini with its Mi Pad
, Chinese electronics giant has continued the theme with its latest (upper) mid range smartphone, the Mi 4i. Revealed at an event in New Delhi yesterday, the Mi 4i looks a bit like the iPhone 6

had a love child, but packs an impressive set of specs for its budget price.
If you've ever looked at something like the YotaPhone
and wished you could have a second e-ink screen on your iPhone 6
