Microsoft announced two recent entry-level Windows Phone devices. They will both offer a 4-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen, with a resolution of 480 x 800px and a Snapdragon 200 SoC, which is outdated at best. On the plus side the couple only costs €70/€80..

Samsung was also unsurprisingly present in the news and for two main reasons. One being ever growing rumors surrounding the next Galaxy S6 smartphone as well as impending Lillipop updates and the other the Samsung Z1. The handset got announced this week and while it has small to offer in terms of hardware it is unique as the first ever Tizen-powered smartphone.
