I think it’s safe to say that HTC didn’t have quite as good of a day yesterday as Samsung, but that doesn’t mean their new products aren’t worth familiarizing yourself with. After all, some of you probably won’t ever buy a Samsung device and instead prefer HTC’s metal and the silhouette of the One (M8), which is what the new One M9 looks like. Or maybe you are fascinated by their partnership with Under Armour or late entry into the VR world.
Whatever it is, you have a chance to relive the moments as they unfolded yesterday in Barcelona. The whole event was around 50 minutes, though, it felt much shorter and to-the-point than that. There isn’t a 60-second version, so you’ll need to either take an hour or do your best to jump to the good parts if you want to get through it in a hurry. (more…)
Yesterday, was a bit wild. Yesterday, was also a Sunday, so there is a good chance that you missed a bunch of it. If so, don’t worry! Both Samsung and HTC have hosted their MWC press events for replaying. We’ll start first with Samsung’s, because it was pretty impressive. From the Galaxy S6 to the S6 Edge, both of which have been completely redesigned from the ground up, we got the feeling after they exited the stage that Samsung was officially back in the driver’s seat.

Because you can’t get enough Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge at the moment, right?
Now that HTC is off stage at Mobile World Congress (MWC), it’s time for Samsung to dominate the rest of your life. OK, that’s a bit excessive, but with the soon-to-be-announced Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, expect Samsung to try and return to its pre-2014 form. All signs currently point to these two phones being Samsung’s best in years. They are completely re-done from the ground up, with more glass, more metal, and less gimmicks. At least, that’s what we are crossing fingers for.
Below, you will find a live stream of Samsung’s Unpacked 2015 event. The show kicks off at 9:30AM Pacific (12:30PM Eastern). You will also find a live blog featuring a live chat with the DL staff.
This should be good. Like, this should be really good. (more…)
Huawei is about to make its presence felt at MWC with the announcement of the Huawei Watch. The watch itself was first spotted yesterday on a billboard, but we now have full promo videos for this Android Wear-powered beauty that will be made official in a few hours. Posted to the Huawei YouTube channel, two videos walk through the design process for the watch and also show how cheesy Euros are when they take vacations with their brosephs. (more…)
HTC will make the new One M9 official tomorrow morning, but that hasn’t stopped leaks from pouring in. Thanks to some sort of journalist who appears to have failed at meeting his embargo of an early hands-on with the device, we get to see the phone in comparison to the HTC One (M8) and One (M7). (more…)
You already know that the Moto E with 4G LTE is now official, and yes, it was indeed Motorola’s mystery surprise for this morning. Our review unit arrived shortly after the announcement was made, so it’s now time for our unboxing and initial tour. (more…)
Last night, LG announced that the G Flex 2‘s global rollout has begun. You still can’t currently buy it anywhere outside of Korea, so I don’t know what that really means, other than they needed another opportunity to get their phone in headlines before Samsung and HTC take over the world this weekend. Accompanying that announcement is this video, which they are calling the “Product Story Video.” Apparently, a “product story video” is one where LG explains what the G Flex 2 is all over again. It’s a worth the quick 3-minute watch if you are interested in this curved “beast.” (more…)
