LG G3 Stylus breaks cover ahead of IFA

LG G3 Stylus

The LG G3 loses power, and that high-resolution display, but gains a stylus in this 3G-only device

LG tonight (and a few weeks after accidentally leaking it) has announced LG G3 Stylus. While it shares the LG G3 name, it's lacking most of the punch of this year's flagship. The QHD display has been traded for a qHD display — from a 2560 x 1440 resolution down to 960 x 540 — but in the same 5.5-inch size. The processor similarly been downgraded to a quad-core set running at 1.3GHz. It's only got 8GB of on-board storage, and it's limited to 3G data as well. But it does have the same software experience as the G3 proper, and it's got the Rubberdium stylus tucked away in a silo inside the phone. So there's that. And you'll find a 13-megapixel camera on board.

The LG G3 Stylus is headed to Brazil in September, with countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and CIS to follow.

LG will be showing the G3 Stylus at the IFA conference next week in Berlin.

Mini review: The Sprint Galaxy S5 Sport

Sprint Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport

A fitness-focused fraternal twin to AT&T's Galaxy S5 Active, the Galaxy S5 Sport is a welcome addition to Sprint's lineup

Think Samsung has gotten its money's worth out of the Galaxy S5 yet? Think again. Just when you thought the company tapped all of its flagship's marketing potential, another iteration — and another sales opportunity — has entered the ring. Meet the Galaxy S5 Sport, a Sprint exclusive that custom crafts the Galaxy S5 Active, which we met earlier this summer, into a durable, everything-proof companion for your fitness-driven lifestyle.

We spent a few weeks the S5 Sport to find out where it differs, or if it differs at all, from the Galaxy S5 Active, and how it stacks up against the rest of the super-charged Android flagships sitting on Sprint shelves this summer.
