Sony's latest high-end phone, announced for the Japanese market, is a bizarre non-upgrade that does no favors for the company or its customers.
Let's talk about the Sony Xperia Z4. The Japanese electronics giant announced the latest in its line of premium Z-series smartphones recently for its home market. And it's fair to say the popular reaction to the device has fallen somewhere between bewilderment and outright derision. Consumers and critics alike seem confused as to why this phone exists, questioning the priorities Sony's taken with what appears to be its early-2015 flagship.
The original cast of Marvel Cinematic Universe Avengers have officially been assembled, if only in Galaxy S6 theme form.
It seemed a little odd when thumbing through Samsung's shiny new Theme Store for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge to find a single Avenger missing from the special Marvel section at the top of the app, but it appears she was just running a little behind. The Black Widow theme has been added to the list, and if Samsung's official announcement is any indicator this completes the list of Avengers that will appear in the store before Age of Ultron hits theaters.
LG continued its G4 teaser push today with a new video that puts the focus on that F1.8 lens.
The teaser follows photographer Colby Brown as he uses the G4 to capture some pretty great images. Along the way, Brown touts the camera's ability to capture accurate colors and reduce noise in dark environments.
A big reason for choosing a new launcher is to increase the density of the app grid — now the Galaxy S6 lets you do it, too.
Samsung added the ability to move from a standard 4x4 app grid to a larger 4x5 or even 5x5 within its stock launcher, and it's super easy to do as well. While you'll still have to go to another launcher if you want something more advanced, if you just need to get a little higher information density the stock launcher has you covered — let us show you how it's done.
Depending on which carrier you got your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge from, you might have noticed a familiar sticker at the top.
One of the more important details surrounding the launch of Samsung's flagship duo was the decision to go all-in on their Exynos processors for this generation. After years of using Qualcomm for some versions and Exynos for others, the unified release is a big deal for Samsung. With the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge on shelves now, several users have pointed out a sticker that reads "Qualcomm 4G" on the top edge of the device. We've got one here on the Verizon Wireless variant of the S6 edge, but not on the T-Mobile variant. This doesn't mean there's a Snapdragon hiding under the glass of the VZW S6 phones, but it does mean Samsung licensed some things from Qualcomm in order to ensure everything works as intended.
In a recent update to a support document, Google announced that the YouTube app on devices running older versions of Google TV will no longer be supported "after April."
Specifically, the YouTube app will stop working on devices running versions 1 or 2 of Google TV, as well as older smart TVs and Blu-Ray players. While support for the app will be dropped as of the end of April, Google says that it will begin shutting down older versions starting today, April 20.
It's not what you'd call a complete thought, but Kwikset's Kevo smart lock introduces some unique ideas into the smart lock ecosystem.
The folks at Kwikset have been trying to make locks and deadbolts smarter for a while now, and as a result their products are usually considered some of the best for people looking to add some smarts to their home. Their latest smart lock, the Kevo deadbolt, is an attempt to take what they've learned so far and make the act of locking and unlocking the door more natural. You basically make your smartphone the key, and assuming you keep that key in your pocket you need only reach out and touch the lock when walking up to the door to unlock it. It's simple, reasonably user-friendly, and Kwikset's software for Kevo extends this functionality in a way that makes a lot of sense.
To accomplish this, Kwikset basically walked away from all of the things that made their existing smart locks functional and user-friendly.
This, as well as some painfully absent device support, is where things start to go wrong.
