Accessibility features on the LG G3

Accessibility on the LG G3

LG's additions to Android's accessibility settings are notable and helpful

Modern smartphones, like the LG G3, are built for everyone in mind. That means folks who get up every morning, strap on their FitBit and go for a run, as well as those who just need a bit of help holding something small and slippery like a smartphone in their hands. We're not all built the same or can perform the same functions, and a good smart device knows this and allows for some fine-tuning to suit almost everyone. The G3 does an excellent job at this!

There are plenty of accessibility features built right into Android itself, but like most other things, the people who makes the phones we buy and love can (and have) added plenty of their own touches in this critical area. You should have a look here and see the basic Accessibility settings available from Android, then read down and see how LG has added to this list and made it better.

$699 is all that separates you from an imported Samsung Galaxy Alpha

64

Samsung's metal-clad Galaxy Alpha may not have an official release date in the U.S., but popular device importer Expansys will be happy to sell you one for a cool $699. That price is quite high, but shouldn't shock anyone who's bought a brand new device from an importer before. The over $700 after shipping you'll pay is getting you a global unlocked model with 32GB of storage, a nice metal frame and an octa-core processor.
