The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Xperia Z3, and more: weekly news round-up
Announcements, announcements, announcements – that's what we have on today's list of stories you shouldn't have missed, and the one with the most impact was that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Samsung's newest phablet device was unveiled to much fanfare at IFA 2014, to the delight of all who favor larger-than-average handsets.

The Note 4 was not the sole star of the show, however. Samsung announced a peculiar new smartphone, the Galaxy Note Edge, and its curved display is what makes it special.

Sony also had its fair share of time under the spotlight. The company announced its latest Android flagship, the Sony Xperia Z3, along with its mini version, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, and a new mid-ranger, the Xperia E3

And that's far from all. We've put links to all of last week's most interesting stories in the slideshow below, so flick through it to see what you might have missed.

Got my T-Mobile jump primed for a note 4 unless the z3 turns out to be better.

Depends on how you define better.. For one, the Z3 IS water resistant. It also has a smaller footprint. Sony CLAIMS it to be more power efficient than the Z2 which already has a pretty impressive battery life. Everything else, the Note 3 wins =/

Sony Xperia Z3 will be my next phone. Glad I skipped the Z2.

Definitely want the z3 compact. Seen a video of it next to the HTC one mini 2 last night and to me its honestly the best looking smartphone in the world. (Android wise) O.O
