The world's slimmest smartphone is now 4.75mm thick — How thin is too thin? Well, the Chinese smartphone makers are always pushing their limits on this end. Following Gionee's 5.1mm Elife S5.1 and Oppo's 4.85mm R5, today Vivo has set a new record with its X5Max, a 4.75mm-thick Android phone that still manages to pack a number of notable features.

Casio's 'Kawaii Selfie by Mirror Cam' is exactly what it says it is — Casio's camera division isn't afraid to admit that it's cashing in on the selfie hype big time, but for those who aren't willing to shell out over $1,200 for the EX-TR50, there's now a much more affordable option.

OnePlus and Cyanogen on brink of breakup after India fight — Poor OnePlus just can't take a break. Just as the company's busy taking care of its Black Friday promotion, its store opening in Beijing and its India launch with Amazon next week, a close partner decided to drop a hurtful bomb.


Meizu MX4 goes Pro with '2K+' screen, fingerprint reader and 'Retina Sound' — It wasn't all that long ago when China's Meizu unveiled its latest phone, the MX4, but the real flagship is actually what the company announced today. As you can tell from the name, the new MX4 Pro is a beefed-up version of the earlier model, yet it's still priced very competitively and is almost just as comfortable to hold.

Opera Max can now save Android mobile data in 16 more regions — Over the last few months, Opera's been slowly rolling out Max across the world to save mobile data -- apparently by up to 50 percent, including images and videos -- on Android devices, and its recent collaboration with MediaTek is no doubt a big boost to the service's street cred.

香港人,HK$7,498 的 Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 你會買嗎?

GoPro-ready Ghost drone touts easy tilt control and auto-follow mode — As a recent episode suggests, Parrot and DJI are the two most recognizable names in the consumer drone market right now, but they are about to face a new contender. Merely three months ago, we met Ehang who showed off its heavy-duty hexacopter at TechCrunch Beijing; and now, the Chinese company is also pushing its more affordable Ghost quadcopter onto Indiegogo.

60 seconds with the world's first Bluetooth padlock — In just a matter of three months, the Noke smart padlock managed to make its way from Kickstarter to our Expand event as an Insert Coin contender, so of course it's rather special. First of all, it's a Bluetooth 4.0-enabled steel bolt that can be unlocked with a click on the shackle when your iPhone or Android phone is nearby.

Five questions for the man making contactless wireless power a reality — First came Qi, and now we have Rezence. These are the two big names in the wireless power industry, except the latter is still in its infancy as it's kicking off with a different type of technology: magnetic resonance.

RT @JChengWSJ: Happy holidays! Unless you work at Samsung, of course. Tough times call for tough late December work schedules.

@JChengWSJ Feels like the fifth wave since 大長今, Rain, Girls Generation and PSY, unless I missed something.

@RaviCNN Of course, I simply told him there was no need to be so rude about it. Ironically, he was reading a book about self-cultivation.

@RaviCNN I just put my jacket on the empty seat next to me. When that guy arrived he was pissed & kept mumbling about me lacking manners.
