February 2015


All is fair in love and tech in Speed’s first Mobile Devices issue of 2015. Led by top CES 2015 picks, the latest smartphones, phablets, tablets, hybrids, and wearables battle it out to be your ultimate tech machine. And it doesn’t hurt that the gorgeous Sarah Lahbati is winning your hearts right from the cover page. In this month’s arsenal: LG G Flex 2, Yota YotaPhone 2, and the hottest products from this year’s International Computer Electronics Show; BlackBerry Classic making a comeback; and up-to-date watches, kicks, and tech gear to complete your travel look. But which gadgets are worth spending on? Check out Speed’s review of the Sony Xperia Z3, LG G3 Stylus, BlackBerry Passport, Amazon Kindle Fire HD, Gionee GPad G5, Google Nexus 6, Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, and the Subaru WRX 2.0 CVT. Prepare yourself for some lifestyle changes. Speed is here to help with features on the rise of a unified operating system for various devices, cashless mobile payments, and the hybrid and convertible fanfare. While you ogle at the power banks that let you charge your devices in style, read about guest columnist JM Tuazon’s experience of going without a cellphone for a year back in 2004 and meet the techies in your neighborhood—from your GrabTaxi driver to the friendly next-door doctor. Know what to consider before splurging on a power bank and read helpful tips on pimping your Android UI, removing private information from your phone, maximizing Google’s new email manager, and ridding your smartphone or tablet of virus.
