Samsung, H TC and LG took to their UK-based Twitter accounts to bicker, after the HTC One won the "hottest smartphone of 2013" award. This is usually the sort of childish behaviour we expected from fanboys, so it's kind of weird to see entire companies engage in it.Read More
Researchers at Cambridge University have developed an Android app naned 'Emotion Sense,' which tracks your happiness using a combination of smartphone data and users' perception of mood.
Biometrics have flourished in past years. From securing your smartphone to tracking people through airports, it's gained a lot of interest. Fujitsu Laboratories is no exception to this trend, and from it’s continued development, they have created camera software that can read a person pulse from just their face.
Samsung have unveiled the Galaxy S4, their next generation smartphone at the 'UNPACKED' event. Titled the 'Life Companion,' it brings a new set of features to the table. Aesthetically, little has changed; but plenty of software and hardware upgrades are present.

New research by the University of Michigan shows that you are more likely to pull out and use your mobile phone when someone around them does the same. Sort of like when you immediately yawn after someone else has; but whereas yawning is simply "contagious," this is a "contagious decision."

But though its magnificent size somewhere between phone and tablet (the newly-coined ‘phablet’ is apt) is likely to turn many off, it still, just about mind, works.
