The LG G3's rear power and volume buttons

LG G3

LG's latest flagship handset continues its tradition of back-mounted keys

LG broke the mold last year with the G2, switching from the tried-and-true side-mounted power and volume keys and putting its buttons on the back. And it worked pretty well, allowing the company to slim down its bezels while keeping the main keys relatively accessible. (Though that said, we were less enamored with the inferior design that featured on the Verizon G2.)

Back buttons quickly became a signature LG feature, arriving on devices like the G Flex and G2 Mini, and they're back on the company's 2014 flagship, the LG G3.

Check out our video after the break.

New, plastic HTC One outed on HTC China site

32

Following recent rumors of a plastic HTC One being in the works, HTC China has taken the wraps off this new model with a post on Weibo linking to a promotional site for the phone. Besides the change in materials, you're looking at familiar chips and software, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and HTC's BoomSound-based audio. Despite the high-end internals, the chassis looks a little more like last year's HTC One, the M7, than this year's offering.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active for AT&T photo set leaks, looks more rugged and tank-like

19

We've seen the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active leak our a few times already, including a surprisingly lengthy hands-on video of the S5 Active in a dude's truck (how appropriate, huh?), so what's one more? We've seen the back of this phone before, but only in that video, so what we have now is a better look — a still photograph, if you will — of the front and back of the Galaxy S5 Active.

How to take a screenshot on the LG G3

G3 screenshot

Taking a screenshot on the LG G3 is as simple as pressing buttons or swiping the screen

As with most Android phones, taking a screenshot on the LG G3 is simple enough, if you know the trick. There are a couple of ways to save the image on your screen for posterity, and they're both really easy, as for the most part LG's using the standard Android button configuration. Only thing is, the main physical keys are on the back of the phone, so you'll need to go about pressing them in a slightly different way.

And there's also a secondary way to grab a screenshot and annotate it, using the built-in QMemo+ application. Let's get stuck in after the break.
