Should you wear a case on the leather LG G4?

73

A hot topic that has both sides very committed to their choice.

For those of us out there, including myself, that never leave home without some sort of protection on our phones, the leather LG G4 might be the one (and only) exception to the rule. There are alternatives to consider, if the naked lifestyle won't keep your worries at bay. Hit the break for the nitty-gritty.

Project Fi welcome box

If you're waiting for a Project Fi invite, this is what you can look forward to when you sign up.

Google has done some neat packaging for its Nexus devices and accessories (Google Glass was particularly high-end), hardly cutting back on the presentation. Project Fi is no slouch here, and Google sends out a very large box when you sign up for the new carrier to help make sure you have a good first experience with the invite-only service.

The welcome box, which is about the size of a Nexus 9, matches the look of Nexus device boxes with white cardboard and bright primary colors inside. And when you open it up, you're greeted with a great stash of accessories for your Nexus 6. Check 'em out.

These Android phones can handle wireless charging

175
Wireless Charging

It's the feature you either have to have or don't care about at all.

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.

How to handle wireless charging in big phones

51
Note 4 Qi

Making everything bigger introduces new problems, but the solutions are often fairly simple.

We might as well call facts facts; big smartphones aren't going anywhere anytime soon. If anything, our mobile devices are going to continue to push the envelope. For the most part, the people who enjoy these devices can all agree it's a good thing. There are a couple of situations, however, where having a big phone can present unique challenges. A perfect example is wireless charging, which seems like it would be easier with a larger phone but more often than not means you have to be unreasonably specific about how your phone sits on whatever platter you've purchased.

In a perfect world these devices would all have guiding magnets to make things easier — RIP Nexus 5 — but since that doesn't happen we've got some quick tips on making wireless charging a little easier.
