How to start and stop Dropbox photos syncing to your Samsung Galaxy S5

7

One of the nice features in the Samsung Galaxy S5 gallery app is Dropbox photo syncing. If Dropbox is your chosen destination for photo storage in the cloud there's every chance you'll love this. It's also a feature bound in frustration for some, since it seems to be able to enable itself automatically once you're signed into Dropbox on your phone – or at least that's how it went down for us.

Thankfully turning it on and off is a simple process so long as you know where to look. As is turning it back on again if you decide you do want it. Head on past the break to see how.

Vertu's latest luxury Android phone costs over $10,000

51

Any time we look at a phone and think, "whooo, that's expensive", we have to stop and remind ourselves that there are phones makers like Vertu that charge thousands of dollars for generally comparable (and often lesser) products. And that's where we find ourselves today with the newly-announced Vertu Signature Touch. But unlike Vertu smartphones of the past, this one isn't depressingly behind-the-times when it comes to what's inside, though it is still obscenely expensive at £6,750.

LG G3 reportedly off to a strong start in Korea

35

Western markets might not get the LG G3 for another month or so, but the phone is already on sale in LG's home market of South Korea, where apparently it's selling pretty well. Korean outlet ETNews reports that the phone is shifting 25,000 to 30,000 units daily in the country, and that sales are 1.5 to 2 times that of last year's G2. The publication points out it's also ahead of the 7,000 to 8,000 managed by the Galaxy S5, though that phone's Korean launch was disrupted by an unauthorized early release on certain carriers, as operators looked to sidestep government-imposed sales bans.

20

Sony is the latest handset maker to field a mid-range product with a large, five-plus-inch screen size. Announced this morning, the Sony Xperia T3 packs a 5.3-inch display, and at 7mm thick Sony says it's the world's slimmest handset at this screen size. Like the Xperia Z family, the T3's sporting a metallic trim around its edge, with a dedicated camera key and Sony's signature rounded power button, but with a more traditional rounded back. Unlike Sony's line of premium smartphones, there's no water or dust resistance rating.

The HTC One E8 brings plastic to a mostly familiar experience

HTC One E8

If you've been longing for a polycarbonate version of the HTC One M8, minus the Ultrapixel camera, today's your lucky day. If you're in Asia.

The HTC One E8 is now official. It brings a 5-inch, 1080p display and a Snapdragon 801 processor in a plastic body, swaps the "UltraPixel" camera for a traditional 13MP shooter and is "designed to attract the fashion pack."

It still has HTC's excellent BoomSound speakers and is running Android 4.4.2 with Sense 6. The biggest difference between this and the M8? Plastic, and the camera.

It's destined for other regions, to be announced later, and will be priced at 2799 RMB, or about $447 U.S.

It's an HTC One. Mostly. The HTC One E8 takes most of the specs we've come to know and love in the M8, but replaces the 4-"UltraPixel" camera with a traditional 13MP shooter, puts it all in a plastic body and calls it a day.

The HTC One E8 is destined for China at first, with other regions to be announced.

Following are full specs for the HTC One E8.
