In the market of Android-based smartphones, competition has been pretty stiff the past few years due to the increasing number of manufacturers. Initially, Samsung has been the king of Android-based smartphones but tech companies like Sony and LG have been putting out impressive phones themselves. Sony has the Xperia phone line while LG has only released one of their best to date, the G3. How do the products of these two companies fare against each other?
Bigger displays make bigger appeals but screen resolution also plays a part. The G3 boasts a 5.5-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440. The Xperia T3 is less impressive, only with a 5.3-inch display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720.
Both phones can currently run the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS. The G3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz Krait 400 processor while the Xperia T3 only has a Qualcomm MSM8928-2 Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.4GHz Cortex A-7 processor. By any means, the G3 is more powerful than the Xperia T3. more >>

The iPod Touch line is way overdue for an upgrade, but it is still uncertain whether Apple will want to push through with a 6th generation. Some have speculated that the upcoming iWatch will be replacing the iPod Touch line.
Apple has been very productive with their development on the iPhone and iPad in recent years lines but their iPod Touch line hasn't been getting that much attention. The last iPod Touch that the Cupertino giant released was the 5th generation Touch two years ago. By all standards, the 5th generation iPod Touch is outdated in terms of specs and hardware.
Of course, the device is still a fast performer in its own right but since Apple has not released a 6th generation over the last two years, sales have dropped down by as much as 36 percent. The company did experience a small 6 percent uptick of sales last quarter but this was made possible by the release of the 16GB model with a camera. This was not the 6th generation iPod Touch, though. more >>
It has been almost a year since GTA V was released and fans are already seeking out a sequel in the works. The sequel is a possibility but expect it to come after at least a few years. Currently, Rockstar is busy improving the online port of GTA V, GTA Online which they announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier this year. Even so, the company isn't dismissing the possibility of a sequel.
"We've got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do. We don't know what GTA 6 will be, but we've got some ideas," Rockstar president Leslie Benzies said.
GTA VI is a real possibility but there are currently no confirmed reports or announcements of any kind about any developments taking place. It is still quite possible that Rockstar is already undergoing development for the sequel but with their time and resources gone into the improvement of GTA Online, it is understandable that Rockstar wouldn't want to make any announcements. more >>
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has been out for quite a while now and it would look like it could outdo the one-year old iPhone 5S. The two companies have been trying to outdo each other by releasing faster, smarter, and maybe bigger smartphones each generation. Now, we'll look at how the two phones fare against each other.
At first glance, the iPhone 5S looks considerably smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5. The iPhone only measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm while the Galaxy measures at 142 x 73 x 8.1mm. The Galaxy is also heavier than the iPhone, weighing in at 145g compared to the latter's 112g.
Material-wise, the iPhone looks better and more robust than the Galaxy, being made out of anodized aluminum whereas the Galaxy is only made out of plastic. more >>
Square Enix, makers of the Final Fantasy franchise, announced the release of Final Fantasy XIII back in 2006. However, during the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo the company changed the name of the title from Final Fantasy XIII to Final Fantasy XV.
The release date for the newly renamed title was placed somewhere in March 2015 when Square Enix announced that their focus was in developing the Kingdom Hearts 2.5 remake. The HD remake of the game is set for a 2014 release. Alongside Final Fantasy XV, the company is also developing the third title in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
Co-creator of the Kingdom Hearts game, Tai Yasue, ensured that development for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 wasn't getting in the way of the development of either the next Final Fantasy title or the Kingdom Hearts title. more >>
