The HTC Re camera: An AC editor roundtable

34
HTC Re camera

Here's what we think about HTC's RE camera now that we've used it a bit.

When HTC announced the RE camera in the fall of 2014, plenty of people were curious. HTC is branching out and building "lifestyle" products (their words, not mine) and started with an accessory that was odd-looking, yet intriguing. It didn't look like a handheld camera (or even a GoPro), but it had a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a promise of being able to take great pictures. We all had to try it.

Fast forward a few months, now that we all have had a while to give the RE camera a real-life workout, and it's time we gave our long-term impression about the handheld camera that looks like an asthma inhaler.

Strap in and have a read.

Help us 3D Print some Lloyd gear in this week's contest

We've thrown everything you can imagine at this 3D Printer. Well, almost everything.

For the past few weeks we've been putting an Ultimaker 2 through its paces, and learned a ton in the process. We know that making your own accessories can be cool, dealing with failure can make you want to rip your hair out, and ultimately it's fun to try new things. There's even a mostly pointless Moto 360 pocketwatch adapter out in the world thanks to the experiences we've had so far. We've got a few more posts on the way about our experiences with 3D Printing so far — including whether or not this tech is ready to life in every house — but something was missing from the experience, our good buddy Lloyd.

What you see before you is a simple contest to get some Lloyd gear into the 3D Printing world, and the winner of this contest will walk away with an Android Wear watch of their choosing.

Dealing with local storage backups on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge

95
Galaxy S6 USB

No microSD card slot is a bummer, but we're not even close to calling local storage dead.

Folks who appreciate local storage are typically the most vocal supporters of microSD card slots on Android phones. We've seen a lot of unrest in the forums about it, but one post in particular stood out when it came to dealing with local backups. It's just plain convenient to be able to load 60gb of music or movies onto a single storage device and move it from place to place to suit your needs, and if you're regularly on the go or you don't have the best Internet connection in the world — to say nothing of a mediocre data plan — local storage is everything. News that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will be cranking up the internal storage in exchange for a profile that makes removable storage wildly impractical sounds like a huge bummer to local storage folks, but the truth is there are plenty of options out there for you still.

Samsung will allow you to remove unwanted 'bloatware' on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge [Update: not quite]

223

Update: According to the folks at MobileSyrup, it looks like you won't be able to fully remove pre-installed apps after all. Tapping on the "minus" button for pre-loaded apps (even those from Microsoft) simply disables them, rather than completely removing them. MobileSyrup demonstrates in the video below:

Original Story: Samsung will allow you remove most of the bloatware pre-installed on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, offering a more streamlined experience.

Twitter will soon allow specific location tagging with help from foursquare

3

Twitter is working with Foursquare to turn your location from a town name to a specific location.

Users will soon be able to tag locations on Twitter with more information than just a generic location thanks to Foursquare. Previously Twitter only allowed for locations to be tagged with the name of the town you were in, which wasn't always helpful. Foursquare has a huge database of locations, and many would rather tag their tweet with an exact location than just a city or state that they happen to be in.

T-Mobile LG G2 and LG G3 Lollipop update moves to 'T-Mobile Testing'

27

T-Mobile's software update page has been updated to reflect that the Lollipop update for both the LG G2 and LG G3 is now in carrier testing.

Recently T-Mobile has updated their software update page, changing the status of both devices to 'T-Mobile Testing', a change from the previous 'Manufacturer Development'. We have already seen Sprint and AT&T roll out the Lollipop update for the LG G3 leaving T-Mobile users wondering where their update was. This change means that the software is now in the hands of T-Mobile for final testing. Carrier testing is the final step in the process before the update goes live, so hopefully no big bugs are found that would halt the release.
