Just this morning we noted that Sense 6 for the Verizon HTC One M7 had been upgraded to "complete" on HTC's upgrade tracker, but the update wasn't yet available — well now it is. HTC One M7 owners on Big Red are being treated to a 642.8MB download that will update their device to HTC Sense 6, bringing along all the goodies we've come to expect from the modern interface.
Sprint is rolling out an update to the HTC One M7 which brings a bunch of its software features up to date with the M8, namely with the inclusion of the Sense 6 interface. The native TV, camera app, and Blinkfeed are also getting an upgrade as a part of the rollout.
After a lot of noise and not a lot of real information, AT&T has finally announced a June 6 preorder date for the ASUS PadFone X. You'll be able to snag one for as low as $22.92/month, or $199 on a two-year contract. That price includes the PadFone Station tablet which the phone plugs into for a better view of whatever you're working on.
There's a successor to the LG G Flex and the LG Vu 3 coming down the pike for the second half of 2014. The LG G Flex was one of the more interesting devices of 2014. It, along with the Samsung Galaxy Round, was one of the first true curved screen smartphones released, and it lived up to its name by actually being flexible. If you were wondering where LG might go with the Flex line now that they've formally unveiled the LG G3, well, we don't know that. But we can tell you that it and an LG Vu 4 are coming later this year.
If you somehow missed it — off-planet, perhaps — yesterday was LG G3 day in six cities around the world. We were on hand at the main event in London, the results of which LG has recorded for posterity, and which we present above.
If you've been eyeballing the HTC One M8's more affordable plastic brother, the HTC One M8 Ace, you'd be interested in hearing about two new color options that have appeared through a recent leak.

Numbers only tell part of the story when it comes to how big a phone actually is – excuse the cliche but it also comes down to how it feels in the hand. The LG G2 packed a 5.2-inch Full HD display into a frame that would often be found paired with much smaller display sizes through a mixture of unique design and possibly a little witchcraft. Now the LG G3 is here, have the LG boffins done it again? Sure, the display size has gone up, but how much bigger has the phone got?

With the arrival of the LG G3 today, we've officially entered the era of 2K-resolution smartphones. (And ones with cameras that focus using a cone of lasers.)
