It turns out YotaPhone 2 does not have an FSB backdoor baked in

17

Yota Devices claims earlier reports about FSB access to the YotaPhone 2 were poorly translated and taken out of context.

Regardless of your position on the subject of government surveillance and monitoring, reading a report describing a secret software backdoor being baked in to a phone is more than a little unsettling. Unfortunately, that's exactly what was being said about YotaPhone 2 last week. Rostech CEO Sergey Chemezov was quoted as having knowledge of an FSB (Russian Intelligence Agency) backdoor into the dual-screen smartphone, which made it so Russian Intelligence could pull whatever they wanted from the device.

It turns out reality is a whole lot less interesting than the fiction readers have initially been lead to believe, at least that's what the folks who make YotaPhone 2 say.

How to change the on-screen buttons on the LG G4

23

While most phones stick to the standard Back-Home-Recent button arrangement, there are a few that ignore that and do what they want (l'm looking at you, Samsung). And now, you can, too.

The on-screen buttons on the LG G4 are customizable, and while we wish we could make them a little bit smaller, we're quite grateful that you can at least change the order and add an extra button if you so choose. Whether you want to add a dedicated dual-screen button to take full advantage of the G4's 5.5 inches, or if you just want to switch the back and recent buttons to match what you had on your old phone, here's how to do it.

Where to buy the Huawei P8 lite

7

The Huawei P8 lite, as it stands at the time of its launch in mid-2015, is one of the new breed of unlocked phones available in North America. It combines decent hardware and disappointing software with a price that's tough to beat, given that you don't have to pay it over 24 months, put off a quarter's worth of dining out just to make up the difference. No, at $249 — like other phones in this space — the P8 lite is excitingly affordable.
