Most Interesting News Stories Of 2015: Q3

By 03:39 Fri, 30 Jul 2021 Comments

The third quarter of the year was perhaps the most action-packed. And not just becautilize Apple’s launch events customarily hold place in this period, as do Samsung’s Note series releases. No, there was plenty of other stuff going on.

It was the Nokia C1 that made headlines again with two of the top three stories depicting the alleged Finnish (or Finnish-Chinese) return to the smartphone world. Placing in between those two, the announcement of Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 Android overlay proved to be bigger news than almost everything this quarter.

The Sony Xperia Z5 generation was often in the news too, rumors and all, but it was our own microscope examination of the Premium’s 4K display that gathered the most hits. Sony’s explanation on when and why it actually does work in UltraHD was almost as interesting, and the smartphone’s announcement itself trailed both these stories.

The continuous rumors and leaks regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ were top reads, correct up to the phones’ unveiling in mid-August. Again, the actual Unpacked event wasn’t quite as fascinating to you.

Motorola announced three Motos in July, the Moto G (3rd gen), Moto X Play, and Moto X Style. Solid specs and competitive pricing made all three fascinating to read about, as much as the iPhone 6s Plus’ revealing.

Sure we krecent the next Android would be M, but the specific type of candy remained a mystery until August 17. Marshmallow became the official name, and officially one of the most fascinating stories of the quarter.
