Lenovo’s smartphones may not be available for sale anywhere in Europe, but that hasn’t stop the world’s largest PC vendor from showcasing its latest smartphones here at IFA 2014. It’s even announced three new mobile devices here: the Vibe Z2, Vibe X2 and the Tab S8.

Hands On - Nokia Lumia 730 Lumia 735 13

Prior to the official launch, the smartphone has been fondly referred to as the selfie Lumia phone by almost all pre-launch rumours and leaks.

[IFA 2014] Hands On: Sony Xperia Z3

by Pang Tun Yau · 2 weeks ago · 7 Comments · 3.2k views

The Sony Xperia Z2 isn’t even a year old – and in Malaysia, it’s been on sale barely four months – but Sony’s six-month cycle for flagship smartphones means that there is a new Sony flagship: the Xperia Z3. This six-month cycle, Sony claims, lets it iterate faster and introduce new innovations in a manner that the competition can only catch months later. I’m not a fan of this policy since it makes new owners of Sony flagships have “the old version” within six months of purchasing one, but with the new Xperia Z3, I can at least begin to understand why.

[IFA 2014] Hands-On: Nokia Lumia 830

Hands On - Nokia Lumia 830 02

As reported yesterday, Microsoft has officially introduced two new additions to its Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8.1 family of smartphones. One of them is the Nokia Lumia 830 which has surprisingly been touted by Microsoft as an “affordable flagship” device.

For many of us, a flagship device is a reference given to products that are positioned at the top of their family members since they usually feature top notch hardware, features and design. In the Lumia series, that role is currently fulfilled by the Lumia 930 as well as the Lumia 1520.

Take a quick look at the Lumia 830’s specs, and you might be baffled to see that its hardware is nowhere near the Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520.  So, how can the Lumia 820 be called a flagship device then?
