Accessibility features on the Samsung Galaxy S6

12

Smartphones are for everyone, and Samsung is doing its best to make its phones accessible.

Even though a majority of users will never touch the accessibility features on their new Galaxy S6 or any other phone they may get, for those who do need the features they're hugely important. Those with limited mobility, eyesight or hearing can't always use a phone to its full potential the way it's set up out of the box, and Samsung does a pretty good job of offering accessibility features that can tweak the experience to help.

Whether you need these accessibility features or may be setting them up on a Galaxy S6 for someone else, here's a rundown of all the options you'll find deep in the accessibility settings.

In pictures: Three generations of LG flagships

62

While the flagship "G" series of LG smartphones technically kicked off back in 2012 with the Optimus G, it wasn't until the following year that the Korean company brought out the big guns. The G2 saw a rebranding of LG's flagship line, along design features which are familiar to this day — a giant display with slim bezels, rear-mounted buttons and KnockOn for waking the screen with a double-tap. That was followed in 2014 by the G3, which added a Quad HD display, re-vamped software and laser autofocus.

With the arrival of the new LG G4, we reunited LG's latest smartphone with its two predecessors to see how they measure up. Head past the break for a closer look.

How to erase and reset your Galaxy S6 (and why you'd want to)

38

Sometimes you need to reset your phone and start over. Here's how that works.

Performing a factory reset on your phone is something most folks never really think about doing. It's the last thing you do before getting rid of a phone, or something you do as a last resort when your device is misbehaving, but it's not something that is regularly thought about. Regardless of your reason, if you need to reset your Samsung Galaxy S6 there's a fairly simple way to do so. It works in mostly the same way as most other Android phones, but Samsung has included some additional features to this function just in case you're doing something other than handing your Galaxy S6 off to another user.

Quick comparison: The LG G4 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

LG G4 versus Samsung Galaxy Note 4

LG's new flagship might just give Samsung's big-screen champion a run for its money.

Released in late 2014 and recently updated to Lollipop in many countries, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 still ranks among the best Android phones available. High-end specs, a gorgeous SuperAMOLED display and a camera almost as capable as the Galaxy S6 make the Note 4 a strong rival to any of the 2015 flagships we've seen thus far. However LG's new G4 could give power users a reason to look beyond Samsung's big-screened, stylus-toting device.

Quick comparison: The LG G4 vs. G Flex 2

LG G4, G Flex 2

LG's 2015 flagship leaves its flexible cousin in the dust.

The LG G4 might be the main event of the company's smartphone calendar, but it's actually already shipped one high-end phone this year. Back in February the LG G Flex 2 arrived, packing top-level internals and LG's unique flexible P-OLED display. And it was a bit of an oddity, proving that flexible phones still come with a bunch of compromises attached. That's made more clear by the emergence of the G4, which promises to be a more capable all-round smartphone.

HTC and LG's 2015 flagships showcase very different approaches to smartphone design.

The colorful rear end of the LG G4

LG G4 leather

Do you like leather? And if so, what color? Or maybe a metallic look and feel is more your thing. With the LG G4, you've got options.

You almost can't have too much choice these days when it comes to your smartphone. And when it comes to the backside of the new LG G4, you've got a whole bunch of choices.

Leather? Or coated plastic. Black? Brown? Yellow? Blue? Red? Metallic? Ceramic? There's a whole lot going on here.

Some tough choices are going to have to be made. Or maybe not, since you're able to swap one back for another. Leather for metallic gray or ceramic white. Or even gold. Choice, in this case, is a good problem to have.
