Eventually most of our computing efforts will go mobile (and in the cloud), but until that happens here's where we keep you up to date with the latest developments on smartphones, tablets, laptops and wireless technologies.

Oppo R5 Review: World's slimmest phone, but are trade-offs worth it?

At just 4.85mm thick, Oppo's latest handset sports a pretty impressive form factor, though you'll have to compromise with a smaller battery, a pretty standard 1080p display, average camera and a mid-range SoC. Can the Oppo R5 still deliver a better experience over a thicker device with, potentially, better hardware?

LG G Flex 2 Review: Top-notch hardware, same curved gimmick-ness

While similar in shape to the original, the new LG G Flex 2 features a more reasonable 5.5-inch display while maintaining the flexibility to bend in certain circumstances. LG is packing in all the latest and greatest hardware: Snapdragon 810 SoC, 1080p display and a 13MP camera with laser-assisted autofocus and OIS. It's still a niche flagship, but the question remains, is the curved G Flex 2 worth it?
