Yesterday, this really terrible render of a supposed upcoming HTC device surfaced that we almost instantly ignored. Why? Because it looked like a terrible Photoshop job of an iPhone 6, with an HTC logo in place of the Apple logo and the camera and flash centered. Otherwise, it was an iPhone 6. It was bad.

Verizon’s DROID MAXX 2, aka the version of Motorola’s Moto X Play that appears to be the only X Play coming to the US, is starting to leak left and right these days.

So, yeah, we have a Galaxy S6 Edge+ in house. Interested in it? We are, sort of. Since it’s really just a bigger version of the already-released Galaxy S6 Edge, it’s tough to take this phone all that seriously. OK, that’s not fair, because this phone is equally as good as the smaller Galaxy S6 Edge, it’s just that you already know everything about this phone for the most part, outside of how the Edge experience translates over to a bigger body. Because in reality, that is what we are looking at here. Sure, some specs differ here and there, but what you have in front of you is a blown up Galaxy S6 Edge with a “+” next to its name. (more…)
