The Xiaomi Mi 4, latest Galaxy S5 Alpha leaks, and the next-gen MOTO G smartphone: weekly news round-up

The Xiaomi Mi 4, latest Galaxy S5 Alpha leaks, and the next-gen MOTO G smartphone: weekly news round-up
So which is the fastest smartphone in the world anyway? The guys at Xiaomi claim to have something that matches the description. It is known as the Xiaomi Mi 4 and it blends top-of-the-line hardware specs with an unbelievably low price. This is not the only hot news from last week, however. We had the chance to take another look at the yet-unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha. The phone is expected to stand out with its premium design and metal construction, all while being more compact than the current lineup of Android flagships. 

On the other side of the price spectrum we have the successor to the Motorola MOTO G. Or at least that is what the leaked Motorola handset from last week is believed to be. The new model is rumored to come close in terms of specs to the current MOTO G, and it is safe to assume that it will sell at a very affordable price point.

Flexible screen? Right, we will use it for a few days and then Goodbye gimmick future. Double-tap to wake is more convenient.

Why you call some low!-range Samsung phone- Galaxy S5? How do you have guts for that? And how could you call any mediocre phone "premium", only because there is cheap aluminum tin can? Come on ! We have enough of this iBS tricks.

Flexible displays will go the way of 3d displays.

3D display is in most 55 inch and above TV. Just watch Hercules in iMax 3D.
