We know that a lot of folks really want a great camera on their phone. It's an important part of every device review, and manufacturers have really stepped up their game in the past couple years when it comes to the camera. Phones like the Note 4, the G3 and the iPhone 6 Plus have great camera hardware and great software to use it. Meanwhile, many phones have a more traditional mediocre camera. The new Nexus 6 is a great example of a camera that's good enough, but not something spectacular like Sony's Z3.

See all of the swoops and curves on one of the more interesting Samsung phones of the year
While the usefulness of a smartphone with a curved edge may be in question, the Galaxy Note Edge sure is something interesting to look at. With its innovative curved AMOLED display it's not something you see every day, and the software that runs on it is unique as well. And it's not just the display that's curved — Samsung had to bring that bend into the entire design of the device, making it deviate some from the Galaxy Note 4. There's a lot to see here, and we've got a huge grouping of pictures for you to check out.

It's been 22 years since Jurassic Park hit theaters and forever changed cinema, and today we've got our first glimpse at the fourth installment of the franchise: Jurassic World. Taking us back to Isla Nublar, the island where the first movie was set (not the "Site B" of the less two sequels), Jurassic World imagines a world where Jurassic Park eventually became a functional theme park. One where at least one employee has some sort of tracking app installed on his first-generation Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. No word on if it's running Tizen or not. All we can really surmise is that Mr. Galaxy Gear is not long for this world.

It's easy to keep apps from sending notifications to your Android Wear smartwatch
If there's one thing you'll quickly learn using an Android Wear smartwatch such as the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live or Moto 360 — any wearable device, really — it's which notifications are important, and which ones you merely brush aside without thinking twice. On your watch, however, those otherwise ignored alerts are quickly magnified, taking up valuable time and head space. You're going to want to pare things down.
The good news is that it's easy to keep apps from sending notifications to your Android Wear device. A blacklist, if you will.
