It has been a tradition of iFixit, the immensely popular website known for its disassembling and assembling guides, to provide tear down images of Apple products as soon as they are launched. The Apple iPhone 5S is no exception and has received the tear down treatment from the website.
The Nokia Lumia 625 codename has been doing its usual rumour rounds for a while now, and while the name was confirmed, the device was nowhere to be seen in a leak. Worry not, the leak machine from China is in full swing and images of what seems to be a big Nokia device plastered as the “Lumia 625H” has been leaked with pictures of its front, back and its sides. The Lumia 625 reportedly sports a 4.7 inch screen with other specifications resembling of or improving on the Lumia 620, presumably.
Sony announced the XPERIA S a while back and we went hands on with it here at MWC. The handset comes with a 4.3″ 720p display powered by the proprietary Bravia Engine which is said to boost colors.

They only had 4 or 5 N8s for us to test, hooked to an alarm-triggered table, inside the conference walls, with awkward lights around them. Not cool. Especially when you think that with Xenon flash and the largest sensor for a cameraphone, the N8 is basically made for night photography.
