Just a day after a leaked report suggested Samsung’s next-gen flagship Galaxy S5 would come packing an all-metal chassis, new rumours have emerged appearing to pinpoint even more of the handset’s specs.
A new benchmark filing by GFX Bench for a device codenamed the SM-G900S, believed to be the Galaxy S5, has revealed some truly impressive features.
The display, already said to be five inches, will have a market-leading 2k display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. That could mean as many as 550 pixels per inch (ppi), making the Google Nexus 5 and iPhone 5s look puny by comparison.

In this post you are going to discover the 50 most important things I have learned about iPhone photography. Over the past two years I have taken some really great photos, and at least ten times more photos that did not turn out the way I wanted. I have done a lot of photo editing, which often only made my photos worse. I have spent countless hours on social media sharing my work and following the work of other photographers. And I have learned many things in the process.
I hope that by sharing the most important lessons I have learned I can accelerate your learning and help you avoid some of the mistakes that I made. But most importantly, I hope to inspire you to become a more active iPhone photographer. Let’s get started!
The BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9982 has been officially unveiled, with the luxury BB10 handset marking the second collaboration between the two companies.
Following closely in the footsteps of the BlackBerry P’9981, the newly confirmed BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9982 sees a premium brushed metal finish and refined user interface given to what is essentially the BlackBerry Z10 in disguise.
“The new all-touch P’9982 smartphone combines a unique design from an iconic brand with the power of BlackBerry 10,” Alistair Hamilton, BlackBerry’s Senior Vice President of Design said. “Every aspect of this smartphone has been purposely designed and built for a powerful premium experience.”
Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group added: “Once again the collaboration with BlackBerry has led to a device that implements our Iconic Style credo without compromises. With the P’9982 we extend our range of modern luxury smartphones and establish ourselves as a market leader in this segment.”
Windows Phone has never looked this good. The latest update to Microsoft’s mobile operating system, known as Update 3, added support for 1080p displays, large smartphone screens and state-of-the-art processors. And now, these features are finally showing up on actual hardware. The first device to tick off all these boxes is the Nokia Lumia 1520, a 6-inch flagship with all of the trimmings we’ve been waiting to see on a Windows Phone device for three years now.
Because high-end Windows Phones have been limited to whatever specs Microsoft officially supports, we’ve felt that Nokia’s flagships didn’t differ enough in specs from the lowest-end Lumias to justify the enormous price difference. At least, they didn’t until now. The Lumia 1520 is the first top-of-the-line Windows Phone device that brings the best possible components. So, what’s WP8 like on hardware that isn’t behind the times? Let’s find out.
For the sum-total of 13 days, Google’s Nexus 5 has been without doubt the best value Android phone on offer. Today, Motorola — famously part of Google — has potentially stolen that title with the official reveal of the Motorola Moto G Android smartphone. A quick tour of the specifications — the 4.5-inch/720p screen, Android 4.3, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera — might initially suggest it’s no threat to the Nexus’ universally superior artillery. Until you learn that the Moto G costs around $179/£135 SIM-free ($199/£159 if you’d prefer 16GB of storage). That’s nearly half the price of the Nexus 5, and much lower than many other competing handsets out there right now.
Whether you’ve finally gotten you hands on Google’s Android 4.4 flagship or you’ve got one on backorder, there’s no shortage of cool things for you to learn about the Nexus 5. Then once you’ve poked around in Android 4.4 a little bit, run down to the 7-11 to try out Google Wallet again, and played a few games on that incredible screen, there’s still plenty of fun to be had.
The ZTE Open is the first Firefox OS phone to be readily available in the UK. As we reported a few months ago, ZTE has taken the unusual step of selling it via eBay, and at the princely sum of £59.99 contract free. It’s a tempting proposition if you’re limited on funds, or just fancy trying out the first mobile operating system from open Internet evangelists Mozilla.
The ZTE Open is very much an entry-level handset. Its appearance is reminiscent of the HTC Wildfire, although our sample is considerably more orange. There is a blue version available too, but ZTE is currently only selling the orange one in the UK. The power button and 3.5-inch jack are on the top, the volume rocker is on the side, and the MicroUSB port is on the bottom, so pretty standard smartphone fare.
