These Android phones can handle wireless charging

136
Pretty chargers for picky devices.

Wireless charging has been around for a few years now, but sadly it hasn't become as widely-adopted as we'd like. Our microUSB ports start to loosen and bend over time and being able to limit that wear and tear by using wireless charging would be a godsend, but due to the fight over wireless charging standards, most phones simply go without it. And while Qi and Powermat and the various companies backing them fight it out, smartphone users are left in the cold.

However, many popular phones are beginning to embrace wireless charging, and if that's something you're looking for in your next phone, here's a list of those lucky devices.

Moto Hint review

Moto Hint

Motorola reinvents Bluetooth earbuds

The Moto Hint is Motorola's latest accessory. It's a Bluetooth earbud that breaks out of the mold, takes the awkward and very geeky Bluetooth headset and tries to turn it into something you'll want to use, because it looks as good as it works.

Not that Motorola has made a breakthrough with the way a Bluetooth headset (to clarify — we're talking about a single-ear device used for calls and voice actions, not a stereo set) works, or the way it interacts with your phone. What they have done is take the existing technology, and deliver it in a package that's as friendly as it is functional, is stylish yet not obtrusive, and made it into something you'll use because you want to, not because you have to.

You'll see what I mean. Read on.

A closer look at the HTC RE camera accessories

22

In case you missed it, the HTC RE camera was announced today. It's a small handheld camera that can work on its own, or connect to an Android or iOS device. We've played with it a bit, so make sure to check out our hands-on impressions so far. After the announcement, HTC had some of the accessories and mounts on display. We asked an HTC representative to explain what they were. Take a look at our video!

Hands-on with the HTC RE camera

58
HTC RE camera

This grippy little guy is fun to use, but the $199 price may have many thinking twice

The idea behind a handheld, standalone camera isn't exactly new. I can remember sporting a Flip camera back in the day, a (relatively) affordable, easy-to-use digital video camera. It was quickly killed off as smartphone cameras took over.

And the idea of the auxiliary camera, tied to a smartphone, has been done before. Sony rolled out its quite-good QX line in Berlin in 2013. And while they weren't cheap definitely had a bit of a Borg feeling to them, they never really took off. (Kodak has its own clone as well.)

And today we have the new RE camera from HTC — a small, sleek, nicely designed handheld camera (yes, it looks a lot like a tiny periscope, or perhaps an upside-down asthma inhaler — that works on its own, or connects to an Android or iOS device. It's $199 retail, and will be available in the U.S. in the coming weeks, with other markets to follow.

We've spent a little time with the RE camera this week in New York City. Don't look for the future of HTC to be found in this singular product. But it is a fun little accessory.

Let's take a closer look. Here's our hands-on with the HTC RE camera.

Olloclip for Samsung Galaxy S5

19

Anyone who's previously been familiar with an iPhone will likely know of Olloclip. Producers of arguably the best clip on lenses for the iPhone and more recently, the iPad, Olloclip has now branched out to Android for the first time with lenses for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4.

It's not hard to understand why they first started with Samsung's two biggest selling Galaxy S phones, the numbers game certainly has to be a factor. We first saw the new lenses at IFA, where they first launched, and we've had a little play around with them to see if they're worth your time.
