LG G4 over the Galaxy S6

The year the Samsung Galaxy S6 — and specifically the edge model — spends a good deal of time in my pocket and in my hand. And for a few weeks that was the case. The outstanding screen and camera pretty much made it a no-brainer. Then came the LG G4. I’d used 2014’s LG G3 for a bit, but it never really stuck with me. The new QHD display was finicky with oversharpening, and LG’s software was a non-starter for me. This year, that’s changed a bit.To be clear, you can’t really go wrong with either one of these phones. But I’ve made a choice, and it’s been a pretty easy one to come to. So here’s why I’d pick the LG G4 over the Samsung Galaxy S6. Ergonomics Again, I’d gone for the Galaxy S6 edge. As I’ve written before, if I was going to go Samsung in 2015, I …

ASUS Zenfone 2 – review

ASUS had more than enough new things to show at Computex 2015. We have already checked out the ASUS Zenpad series, Zen AiO, ZenWatch 2, a new Transformer Book and even the Zenfone Selfie. Most people seem to be ignoring the new Zenfone 2 devices, though. Not us! In fact, we are pretty darn excited to see these new Zenfone 2 versions, as they are actually quite different from the original Zenfone 2 series. The affordable smartphone is being upgraded to a whole new level, really.   For starters, these new phones come with Snapdragon processors instead of Intel chips. Their cameras have also been upgraded with the inclusion of laser auto-focus. And as the cherry on top, there’s also a 6-inch version with more power to throw around.
