LG G3 to have a metal finish back, removable battery

121

Another day, another leak of the LG G3 — this time we're seeing a metal finish back and a removable battery, courtesy of Evleaks. We've seen a lot about the LG G3 over the past few weeks, though not so much of what's inside. Turns out there's a removable battery on the inside, which is a change up from the sealed battery of the LG G2 but dead on with that leak we provided last week. Additionally, it looks like the G3's pop-off back panel will have a metal finish to it, though it's possible it will be more of a looks-like-metal-but-really-is-plastic effect as LG was able to achieve with the LG G Flex.

Draco Design Supernova aluminum bumper for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Draco Design Aluminum Bumper for Galaxy S5

You'll have to manage ergonomic issues and a big price, but this bumper sure looks nice.

If there's one recurring complaint of Samsung's devices, even with the updated design of the Galaxy S5, it's the use of plastic for the entire external build. Plastic is less expensive, easier to mold into a variety of shapes, colors and designs and offers many advantages when it comes to making devices that have various radios inside. That doesn't really matter, though, as most people would prefer that Samsung would step up their game in the materials department regardless.

Draco Design makes several beautiful cases for a variety of devices, and the latest Supernova aluminum bumper for the Galaxy S5 may be just what the doctor ordered for those who just can't stand the look and feel of a plastic smartphone.

Iran censors WhatsApp because Mark Zuckerberg is a 'Zionist'

49

It must be that internet access is slow, because Iran just got around to banning WhatsApp because parent company co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is Jewish. Kind of. After, you know, Facebook bought WhatsApp over two months ago. The ban comes courtesy of Abdolsamad Khorramabadi, Secretary of the Iranian Committee for Determining Criminal Web Content, which has the power to block access to sites and services deemed offensive in content, ownership, or… well, whatever, really.

Prolific leaker @evleaks has published the shot above on Twitter, showing the M8 in a light pink color with a faint brushed pattern on its back.
